Free as a bird

Yep, Donald Trump is now free as a bird to do anything he pleases. And I’ve no doubt he will. The last entity that could have reeled him in, the U.S. Senate via impeachment conviction, passed on the opportunity. In effect they gave him a green light to do whatever he pleases, knowing the Senate won’t touch him and no one else can.

Fasten your seatbelts, everyone. It’s going to be a bumpy year.

  1. Yes, free as a bird and above the law. You got me started thinking what he might do now, so I began to make a list:

    Start wars.
    Loan tax dollars to despots.
    Redirect appropriated money willy-nilly.
    Compromise intelligence sources and means.
    Break treaties.
    Decline to enforce laws, including Roe v. Wade.
    Use the IRS to spy on and damage political enemies.
    Make up new laws himself and call them “regulations.”
    Put his own name on public buildings and parks.
    Rent out stays at the White House.
    Expand and pack the SCOTUS.
    Establish a national religion under guise of a new cabinet department.
    Pardon himself for all past and future crimes.
    Use nuclear bombs to combat hurricanes.
    Raise his own salary and perks.

    In the process I realized that Trump has already done some of these. Oh my!

        1. Well, as Nixon said and the US Senate just confirmed, if the president does it, it’s not a crime. So it looks like anything goes. I hate to think how he’s going to exploit the blank check he was just given.

... and that's my two cents
