The Stooge in Chief should hire representation that resonates with his worldview. I’d suggest the firm of Dewey, Cheatem and Howe.

The job of being the president’s lawyer is tough. It’s bad enough that they’ve got to defend the indefensible, but when they represent a client who’s sleazier than they are it causes confusion in their ranks. Usually it’s the lawyer who’s the slippery eel with questionable bona fides and unsavory connections. But their client puts this shameful lot to shame.

The Stormy storm hasn’t blown over yet. Oh, the tales she could tell, and will tell, once the tangled web of unsigned non-disclosure agreements have been nullified. But as salacious and damning as the details might be, I’m not sure I want them in my imagination. The guy is repugnant enough just standing there fully clothed.

Does it seem as though America has sunk into hole? Weather Armageddon and the mass shooting-du-jour and the psychotic gun lobby and the porn actress infidelity and the nightly slack-jawed pre-adolescent tweet barrage coming from the Oval Office—it seems as though we’ve been thrashing around in a cesspool of despair and disbelief ever since this man body-surfed into office on the waves of his despicable fans who bought tickets to his concert of the damned.

You know it’s bad when Republicans are starting to worry about being in bed with this disreputable lying dog of a plutocrat. Apparently, they’ve gotten up with fleas, and it’s starting to itch.
