And there shall come a harlot, and she will bring down the mighty
In this malfunctioning holosuite program we call modern life (Star Trek: The Next Generation reference), is anyone truly surprised that the Stormy Daniels saga is in the running to bring down the Trump regime? This story hits all of Trump's pecadilloes: his infidelity, his crassness, his cheapness, his bullying. And you have to give it to Stormy, getting around the NDA by filing suit in which she lays out pretty much everything covered by the NDA.
It was well known that Trump was a disgusting reprobate, unfit for any office in the land. He could have kept his head down, kept getting Russian mob money and banging porn stars and keep people believing that he was some genius businessman. Instead he got too big for his already sizable britches, and his thirst to avenge himself against Barack Obama overcame him. When an opera is written about this regime, Pres. Obama will hover in the background, a voiceless character, reminding Trump and the audience of the perils of hubris.
As we hurtle into the weekend, just keep this in mind: this is what a regime on the point of collapse looks like. It won't be pretty. But we're on our way to retaking our Republic.
