"The president's lawyers have urged Trump not to write adversarial Twitter messages or make off-the-cuff comments about the Russia investigations, explaining that those utterances could further hurt him if it seems as though he’s trying to obstruct the inquiries."
That, reports the Washington Post, is one White House line of defense against the righteous onslaught. We might think it a rather astonishing defensive line, since most anyone with an IQ above Louie Gohmert's would scarcely need it "urged" on him. The object of urging, however, believed that firing James Comey — a prima facie instance of obstruction of justice — was a brilliant tactic, hence we shouldn't be surprised that the object's lawyers are urging astonishingly self-evident advice.
Which the object will cluelessly ignore, since, compared to the object, Louie Gohmert is a deep thinker, a keen tactician and even keener strategist, a veritable Cato of letters.
Nestled alongside the president's legal advice is that of grittier and more street-brawling stuff, such as campaign adviser Barry Bennett's. Trump should do "rallies once a week," he tells the Post. "You get to say whatever you want to say, and you don’t have to take questions," he adds.
Imbued in Bennett's advice is of course an implicit admission of both presidential incompetence and guilt. Trump is incapable of fielding questions in a coherent manner, and Bennett knows it. Trump is also culpable as hell, which Bennett also knows, otherwise Bennett would instead advise Trump to simply get the liberating truth out.
Yet a third line of defense is being urged on Trump — and this one, dovetailing with the second, will superfluously smother the first. Here, the defensive line turns not only offensive but pointed: "The deep state and the swamp and many in the media are never going to let up," says Jason Miller, a communications adviser to candidate Trump.
And there you have it: An administration offense that runs home to campaign mama; endless blathering to the boobs about the evil media, the miasmic swamp, and the transcendently vague deep state — all of which will excite the boobs and impress on them that their man in the White House is winning.
Which they'll genuinely believe until the indictments roll out and articles of impeachment are written. For the onslaught is not merely righteous — it is swelling to insurmountable dimensions. Moore's law, which states that computing power doubles every two years, is nothing compared to the unmasking and damning speed of Trump's scandal.
If I'm wrong, we might as well kiss America goodbye — for Trump's treason will have prevailed, and will therefore repeat in increasingly sinister fashion.
