- Next time someone asks for your resignation, you say YES! – Preet Bharara, one of the few holdover U.S. attorneys who has been a stalwart opponent of the rampant corruption that infested the Justice Department during the Obama Administration, was fired late Saturday after he refused to assent to Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ request of all holdover U.S. attorneys to turn in letters of resignation. Bharara’s resignation may or may not have been accepted by AG Sessions, but his refusal to follow a request from his boss left Sessions little choice but can him. Mr. Bharara obviously believed he had gained a status that made him immune to the chain of command. The President just disabused him of that notion.
- Proof that even a blind squirrel finds an acorn every now and then. – Shortly after Bharara’s firing, CNN fake anchor Jake Tapper sent out a Tweet that stated, “Acting deputy Attorney General Dana Boente just called US Attorney Preet Bharara and told him President Trump was firing him.” It was the first non-fake news Mr. Tapper has reported since 2015.
- Very predictably, he hails from California. – Some guy named Jonathan Tuan Tran was arrested on the White House grounds after jumping the perimeter fence. Mr. Tran – who told arresting officers he was in possession of secret information about “Russian Hackers” – was carrying a laptop, a book written by the President and a letter to Mr. Trump at the time of his arrest. He also told the officers he was a friend of President Trump, and had an appointment. The Secret Service begged to differ.
- Tired of winning yet? – Speaking of California, the LA Times reports that, in the Golden State alone, almost 100 construction firms have lined up to try to get a piece of the business for building President Trump’s proposed border wall. Establishment elitists and fake reporters who view everything through a political lens are shocked. Normal people aren’t.
Just another day in Trump Derangement Syndrome America.
That is all.
