President Trump’s Bart Simpson Defense
August 5, 2018, 8:11 p.m.
The President of the United States continues to use his Bart Simpson defense of “I Didn’t Do It, Nobody Saw Me Do It, There’s No Way You Can Prove Anything!”
I’ve used that defense myself many times. Well, not in legal proceedings, but when I was twelve years old.
The problem is that not only is President Trump a liar, 4,229 times as of today, he’s not even good at it. His version of the Trump Tower meeting has changed more than his golf score.
Arguably, the President has had a few bad weeks, but this one has to be ranked up there since he lost several times both politically and personally.
Two immigration policies were ruled against the Trump Administration this week. The first one is DACA has to be restored.
In addition, the Trump Administration is not only responsible for reunification of families separated at the border, not the A.C.L.U. (American Civil Liberties Union), but someone has to be appointed the leader, meaning Judge Dana Sabraw is looking to assign blame to someone.
If that’s the case, someone is going to be held in contempt soon if they don’t comply with Judge Sabraw’s Order. Contempt is a great way to a light a fire under someone’s you know what, because once threatened with jail, #### gets done.
“Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower. This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics – and it went nowhere. I did not know about it!” – President Trump Tweet
Let’s analyze this tweet from a logical perspective.
Is it possible that almost eight people get together including the higher ups of the Trump Campaign, meet at a building owned by the President where he has his residence, while he is there, one floor below him, and not one person told him about this meeting? Only if it were a birthday surprise.
Let’s assume for argument’s sake that it’s possible, even though it is absurd, that Trump didn’t know. Then here’s my question- why then two days before the meeting did Trump state at a campaign rally that he was about to release “dirt” on Hillary Clinton?
We are witnessing in real time another admission by the President that he did in fact collude with Russia. And by the way, we only know the collusion aspect of Robert Mueller’s investigation. We are still in the dark as to financial crimes.
