That's three days work. Three days. And it's not abnormal.
And it doesn't even include such mere pittances as Trump talking over the weekend about preventing wildfires by taking care of for forests' "floors" -- and lying about a conversation he had about it with the president of Finland who has publicly denied what was said when they talked. Nor does it include that just this morning comes the Washington Post story that Trump's temporary Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, already part of an FBI investigation over a scam company he was part of that was shut down, was paid $1.2 million from an undisclosed source for his one-person "charity." In Trump Land, those almost don't even register on the Richter Scale.
Meanwhile, after ginning up his base before the midterm elections about the grave danger to the country from a caravan of 3,500 immigrants 1,000 miles away from the border trying to get legal asylum in the United States, so dangerous to national security that he sent around 8,000 troops and railed about it repeated times a day for weeks leading up to the midterms, Trump has been near-silent after the election about this supposedly monumental danger to the country.
Some things are so blatant that comment isn't even necessary. Where comment would not only be redundant but it would almost obscure the true nature of events. That's part of the reason I'm keeping this short and not even adding comment. The other reason is that I prefer for my head not to explode…
And the elected officials of the Republican Party just enable it all. That's why this is all about the Republican Party.
What kind of a week was it? A week like any other, except...You Are There.
