Giving the Donald his Due

There are not many things I can think of to compliment President Trump about. I disagree with just about everything he’s done so far. TrumpHis performance has been dismal as illustrated by the many disasters in such a short period of time.

Although I do not think his golf game suffered, his country has.

There are many items to consider.

His fundamental ignorance of diplomacy and intelligence matters.

His policy of slash and burn over domestic assistance programs.

His wanton destruction of Universal health coverage.

His ignoring established science on global warming.

His courting of tyrants and oppressive governments.

His arrogance toward the press.

His selection of sycophants as advisers and cabinet members.

But, if I am to expect fairness I must give it in return.  A recent decision by the President shows some flashes of brilliance. Not the self-proclaimed bigly beautiful kind, but real sound judgment and decisiveness.

By hiring an attorney to protect his interest, in what now is clear to the world is a criminal investigation into Russian influence within his organization, he shows he can do the right thing.

In his own words, “The mob takes the Fifth Amendment. If you’re innocent why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?” So, I suppose it’s good news he won’t need to do that.

Or will he?

Perhaps we can get an answer to that from General Flynn. Or the President’s consigliere, Stephen Bannon.

Still, I must defer to the facts.

Finally, I have something to admire in this President.  He is at least smart enough to “lawyer up.”

While he’s at it, he can add a new theme song to his campaign organization.

I suggest “Lawyers, Guns, and Money” by Warren Zevon. Get a coffee, click the link, then let the vitriol begin.

“Send Lawyers, Guns, and Money…the shit has hit the fan.”
