    As we know, our beloved, above-the-law President, Donald “Stonewall Maximum” Trump, is not one to account for his violations of civility, humanity or legality, but in case he ever feels a need to make excuses for his base….instincts, he can grab on to one of the following old floozies — I mean DOOZIES — for justification. Imitation being the sincerest form of flattery, he may even want to lay claim to them all — no matter the doozies became noted quotes ere Trump ere heard of them or the quotees (well, maybe he heard of the first one.)

    “I haven’t committed a crime. What I did was fail to comply with the law.” –DAVID DINKINS, former NYC Mayor

    “I care not who makes the laws of a nation if I can get out an injunction.” –FINLEY PETER DUNNE, humorist

    “Suppression is 9/10ths of the law.” –EVAN ESAR (a pun on the expression “Possession is 9/10ths of the law.”

    “I simply misremembered it wrong.” –MARK KIRK, former Republican Senator from Illinois

    “My friends, no matter how rough the road may be, we can and we will, never, surrender to what is right.” –DAN QUAYLE, VP of the United States under George H.W. Bush

    “There are people in our society who should be separated and discarded.” –SPIRO AGNEW, V.P. of the U.S. under Richard Nixon

    “I AM the Federal Government.” –TOM DELAY, former GOP Majority leader, after telling a business owner to put out his cigar due to a federal law against smoking in the building

    Now that’s a quote we can lay on THE DONALD without DELAY.

      If you or I ignored a subpoena, we’d be in jail. No one should be above the law.

        Without question, rg. Trump is an ass, and they should put his ass in jail.

      Good post! Trump is untouchable…till the house of cards fall down and then it is the beginning of the end for him.

        It’s obvious that Trump is trying the three S strategy: Sandbag, Stonewall, and String this thing out until the 2020 election, which he thinks he can win by continuing to con enough gullible people to vote for him. I can only hope 2020 voters remember this truism: Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.

      I can barely laugh anymore at this disgusting horrible cruel selfish man. You are valiant to try. And I’d be happy to throw the Republicans out with the bathwater. The leaders of that party are corrupt beyond my comprehension. Ugh.

        I feel the same, Diana, which is why I’ve laid off Trump for a while. But, because he is so unrelenting in his “horrible cruel” conduct, I think we must be unrelenting in nailing him. He is undoubtedly counting on good people getting so tired of him that they tune him out instead of calling him out.

          I wish Congress (Democrats, at least) would do their jobs and hold him accountable. What wimps! And you’re right, of course, we have to keep talking about it and demanding sanity.

          As much as I think Trump deserves to be impeached ASAP, I think House Democrats (led by Nancy Pelosi) are wise to wait until Robert Mueller testifies and gives witness to his 400+ page report and his rebuke of Attorney General Wm. Barr’s brazenly misleading summary of it. In falsely exonerating Trump and delaying release of the actual report, Barr acted more like Trump’s personal attorney than the Attorney General of the United States, and the impact was exactly what Trump and Barr intended: general acceptance of Barr’s initial spin.

          Barr knew that first impressions matter, and the only way to combat that impression of Mueller’s report is to have Mueller himself refute Barr’s summary on live TV. Only then will the majority of the American people learn the truth and support those in Congress who are ready to lead the fight to impeach.

        I agree, Lisa, but since the GOP-controlled Senate will never approve impeachment, the only “spanking” that will chastise Trump is to vote him out of office by an OVERWHELMING margin in 2020.

      Reminds me of a lady I was dating who, when I remonstrated her for gossiping, told me, “Richard, I wasn’t gossiping–I was just telling other people what I’ve heard.”

      The right-wing and loyal Republicans view him as the Righteous Warrior against the Left and Godless, so he has a good chance of winning again. We need to unite around a candidate, and understand our candidate may not be perfect, but is far above the cringing cowardice and corruption of the current crowd (a multiple of c’s!, like a tongue-twister).

        We DO need to unite around a candidate. Right now, I think there are too many candidates running for the Democratic nomination, as evidenced during the debates by too much interrupting and talking at the same time, resulting in drowning out each other. I hope the field will narrow ASAP to a half dozen or so ‘serious’ candidates (those with the best chance of beating Trump) so that the choices are less cluttered (for want of a better term).

        I, for one, think it is imperative that (among other qualities) the finalist is able to take on the bully Trump in debates and put him in his place. So far, I think Kamela Harris has best demonstrated that ability, but she needs to become better known, and hopefully will become so as other candidates fall by the wayside.

      I think on the past I’ll stick with Faulkner not that W didn’t say some memorable things. “The past is never dead. It’s not even the past.”

      You can’t go wrong with Yogi (Berra, for those who don’t know & can’t Berra not to). Love the Faulkner quote too.
