When the choice was between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump for President in 2016, I supported Trump and encouraged others to do the same. At the same time, I made it clear that Trump would do things that would disappoint us, but far fewer things than Hillary.
For the life of me, I cannot understand why he has not cleaned house by removing every Obama holdover. It should have happened on his first day on the job. “You’re fired! You’re fired. You’re fired. You’re fired.”
Here’s what I wrote in my May 16, 2017, article, “IT’S TIME FOR TRUMP TO FIRE EVERYONE AND START OVER“:
There’s a scene from the film The Untouchables that he could take a lesson from. Al Capone is on trial for tax evasion, the only crime they could pin on him. There was a jury trial. Eliot Ness finds out that the jury is compromised. It had been bought off by Capone.
The judge, most likely also on Capone’s payroll, wants to save his career by not being exposed even though his name is not on this particular list. So he makes a split-second decision and switches the existing jury with a sitting jury in another courtroom not having anything to do with the Capone case. (It didn’t happen exactly the way it was depicted in the film, but there was a jury switch.)
Then there’s H. R. McMaster whose views and associations are contrary to everything Trump said he would do. I don’t get it. Is this some kind of Trump “strategery” that we’re not being made aware of?
Then there’s Trump endorsement of Luther Strange who is running for Jeff Sessions’ Senate seat. When Trump appointed Sessions to Attorney General, his seat became available and was filled by an appointment by Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley who had to resign from office because of a scandal.
In short, Bentley’s appointment of Strange stunk up Montgomery so bad that we now have to pay $15 million just to throw open the windows and clear the stench out [with a special election].
