Drip, Drip, Drip…

Leaks from the White House. Leaks from other government agencies. A sea of confusion in Washington, as Trump threatens anyone who opposes his will. Information slowly dripping out about the Trump campaign’s dealings with Russia.

America drowning in a sea of lies.

After his first closed-door meeting with senators, Jared Kushner confirmed that Trump was the subject of at least one extortion attempt during the 2016 election campaign.

It’s history repeating itself, as Kushner continues to reluctantly release information…drip, drip, drip, he should have given six months ago before assuming the position as Trump’s number one boy.

The second meeting started out with that revelation. Can’t help wondering what else he forgot to mention. Time will tell.

Last night Trump spoke before an adoring campaign style crowd and gleefully threatened senators to the delight of his audience who were looking for blood. Chants of “Lock her up!” and “build that wall” kept breaking out.

The Boy Scouts of America are under siege today. Here’s why  This is the first time in 80 years that the Boy Scout Jamboree (held every four years) was riddled with controversy. Thank Trump for that.

As It Stands, it’s not easy watching America writhe in fear and loathing as Trump assaults all civilized conventions.
