The circus comes to Washington.

Image result for comey imagesThe American media has got themselves all up in bunches over the anticipated testimony of former FBI director, James Comey. Over at CNN they have a countdown clock for crying out loud. They are salivating all over themselves in anticipation of the big day.

I for one believe that this might be one big nothing burger. I mean sure, he will probably testify to statements trump made to him which could be construed as obstruction of justice, but I don’t think that there will be any bombshell Of my God!, moments. There is nothing that anyone can say about this president at this point that could shock the conscience. We are talking about a guy who bragged about sexually assaulting women and yet he still got elected president. Let that sink in for a moment.

Thursday should be an interesting day. If Donald is nervous he is not really showing it. He is tweeting now more than ever, and we all are terrified. Even news outlets friendly to him have tried to tell him to cut it out.

Just over the past few days he has lied about what the Mayor of London said after a terrorist attack on his country, he has gone after a key ally in the fight against Isis by siding with the Saudis in a fight with Qatar. A country, by the way, where we have a key US air base which we rely on to fight the war on terror. (Who is going to keep this man off twitter?) It’s gotten so bad that even republican lawmakers are now telling him to stay away from the 140 characters way of communicating to the American people.

I hear that trump might be live- tweeting the Comey testimony. He is probably not too nervous about it, because it’s his word against Comey’s at this point. And he knows that at least 38% of the country will side with him. In that 38% there are enough people to fill gymnasiums for a rally.

Sadly, that is all our sick egomaniac of a president cares about.
