Of course, they're legal, if not unsavory. But then I remember quite a few others -- especially of the Clinton variety -- that were less than stellar. I could name names but nah, 2021 lawsuits are not at the top of my agenda.
But it does make you think, doesn't it? You know, how Trump is clearly off the benches and pardoning every living, breathing, human being who could potentially cause him major trouble, except, of course, for Cohen. Maybe, just maybe, that's a big mistake. We'll see.
In any event, for a guy who screamed to the rafters continuously about The Russian Hoax, Trump's pardons are one hell of a useful second act.
Let's just call it legal self-indulgence and leave it at that. Something tells me that the Trump people won't be storming the Bastille come January 20th. Trump will take his pill and if he's got a modicum of class and hasn't been brought up by wolves, will ultimately show for the Biden Inaugural.
So, the game plan seems to be to go out with more of a thump than a bang. To disappear into the mist as a political afterthought while gaming the GOP system in Ivanka's favor. That's where Trump will really excel, in greasing the skids for Ivanka.
To no one's surprise, most Republicans will remain ball-less, except for characters like Sasse, Rubio and Cruz who have other ideas for 2024. Otherwise, how many of these future or potential candidates would actually speak up?
It's all fun and games right down to the 2021 wire! Veto a bill here, shit-disturb there but get your packing in ahead of time by all means.
Trump's on the way out. But the big question is: will he really be missed? Over to all of you, readers.
