Donald Trump has lived in utter disregard for the law (and basic human decency) his entire life. He has refused to pay contractors, has scammed and cheated those who believed in him, has used real estate deals to launder money for Russians, has cheated on his taxes, has obstructed justice and much, much more.
The criminals always believe they will never get caught.
Nixon believed he would get away with it, as did many of those on his White House staff (including his first Attorney General, John Mitchell … are you listening, William Barr?).
Yes, Trump has been sweeping the evidence under every legal (and illegal) rug he could find, but once we get those redactions uncovered and the Democrats succeed (no matter how long it takes) in getting access to Trump’s tax returns (as the law explicitly allows) and other underlying financial documents and evidence from the campaign, the carpet will again lie flat and the country will begin the long road towards healing.
His footprints are dipped in brown, not black, and not ink.
Underneath the Law is a copy of the Constitution.
The Democrats better not ignore the Constitution too. They need to impeach Trump, then let the toady Republicans have to be on the record stopping conviction.
More like scooting around on it like a dog wiping its butt.
The reality is that crime does pay and that not everyone gets caught. The sad part is the there are criminals in office and our system of checks and balances does not work when there are but two deeply partisan parties.
I decided to try watching Trump’s rally in Green Bay last night. I never did see Trump as I stopped watching the minute Don Jr. took the stage. Gag reflex you know.
His feet aren’t the body part being wiped.
Does the law mean anything any more? I’m inclined to doubt it. Perverse “interpretations”, showing utter contempt for logic, are used as a fig leaf over the dictates of the powerful. Law has always been used as a tool for the powerful, but it seems like what we’re seeing is a dissolution of the very concept of law.
“Laws? WE don’ need no stinkin’ laws!”
Excellent comic and excellent message.
Typical rookie mistake: the “Chief Executive” chooses the wrong way to execute the law…
When is the crooked liar going to be held accountable for his many crimes?
