Is a coup d’état dress casual?

 

Hmm, now there’s an odd question this old-hand, seasoned, true blue American citizen never, ever expected he’d be asking; especially when that DC bash’s backdrop is expected to bleed outward to EveryTown, U.S.A.

Not that, at that point, I’d actually give a F about my fashion statement. But I do suppose, at the very least, the fabric should be stain-resistant; seeing how bloodstains are a bitch to remove.

• Will attendance be mandatory? We do know how VainMan is obsessed about size (uh, crowd size). I guess showing up would be advantageous; almost anything would be better than having to hear that big baby bellyaching / screeching re his low numbers till he’s iridescent orange in the face.

• Would anyone still have the balls to raid that odious blowout and shut ‘er down?

That, of course, IS the $64 Zillion question.

• But, WTF is the answer?

To all outward appearances, generals (who, btw have sworn to “defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC”) don’t seem to be all that concerned re that firebrand’s brand of flaw and disorder.

• But, might appearances be deceiving?

It is possible that our top brass have been sporting their finest poker faces; i.e., laying in wait until the very last moment where / when they’ll be ding-donging the despot’s doorbell. And, soon afterwards, be hauling his fat Fascist fanny off the premises and lead-footing the paddy wagon off to the stockade.

At that point, I actually would give a F about my fashion statement.

Yep, I’d be donning my party hat and glad rags!

Witch Hunt? Lynching? Coup d’état?

Donald J. Trump needs to rethink his contempt for the U.S. Constitution and thank its framers for authoring an orderly impeachment / removal procedure. While that’s not the same due process protections afforded ordinary citizens, he still has no good reason to fear a witch hunt, lynching and coup d’état.

Indeed, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has not hired a carpenter to build a pillory. She’s not been frequenting Home Depot ISO heavy duty rope, either. As for her being a proficient military tank commander / driver / gunner? Nah… she just doesn’t seem to be the White House gate crasher / blow the front doors to smithereens type. Hell, it’s doubtful she even owns a bullhorn suitable for issuing her “GET THE HELL OUT OR ELSE!” ultimatum.

Anyway, if Donny is as virtuous, innocent and misunderstood as he claims to be, would not an Impeachment Inquiry provide the perfect, Perfect, PERFECT venue for him to prove it, Prove It, PROVE IT?

Even if he winds up impeached, anyway, the unscrupulous, soulless, spineless U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his like-minded toady underlings can be counted on to elevate rightwing partisanship over righteous patriotism… i.e., they’ll be amenable to allowing a thug to remain holed up within his oval hideout.

Even if Mitch doesn’t march in Trumpian lockstep,  Donny still has all the judges that money can buy. According to an August 5, 2019 NPR report…

“In the 2 1/2 years that Trump has been in office, his administration has appointed nearly 1 in 4 of the nation’s federal appeals court judges and 1 in 7 of its district court judges.” (read more here)

And those stats don’t even begin to factor in the U.S. Supreme / Extreme Court’s conservative bloc… inclusive of the fake prez’s handpicked, sycophantic pals, Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch. Hell, they’d bend over both backward and forward to rule in the Trumpster’s favor… and against America.

Speaking of anti-America dudes… Donny also has one final trump card to play. Russia’s Putin. Come Election Day 2020, Big Bad Vlad could easily finish off his no shots fired overthrow of America… i.e., do his damnedest to keep his puppet / ventriloquist’s dummy propped up in the Oval Office… and make his second term a lifetime appointment, to boot.

America would then wind up dead. And anyone who’d fail to kiss Trump rump would wind up dead, too.
