Let’s see how Republicans will tap dance their way out of this one

Mitch McConnell and Rudy Giuliani will have to do some fancy stepping to dance their way out of the mess Psycho Don has put them in.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Please scroll to the end of this story for important messages concerning the Buzzfeed report that is referenced below.

We don’t typically cover breaking news stories here at The Shinbone Star, relying instead on sister publications with deeper pockets to handle the investigative stuff while we do the insightful, no-holds-barred commentary. But this morning’s Buzzfeed report was so compelling that we’re making an exception.

Buzzfeed’s report that President Donald Trump’s former “fixer,” Michael Cohen, had been instructed by the president to lie to Congress about his ties to a Trump Tower project in Moscow — if true — could be one of the final nails in the coffin of Psycho Don’s presidency.

Imagine it, the president of the United States suborning perjury before Congress!

How will Republicans dance away this time? Namely, how will Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a rare sight on Capitol Hill these days, and Rudy “The Mouth” Giuliani try to spin to the American people that Trump is anything but a huckster, a charlatan, a liar and a traitorous cheat?

It’s time for Giuliani to abandon the charade of trying to defend this president. It’s time for McConnell to reopen the Senate by first allowing a vote on House measures to reopen the government and eventually overriding a presidential veto. Let’s get this thing reopened so we can move on to more important matters, like impeachment.

True, the report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller hasn’t landed yet, but enough has leaked from other sources to begin the process of ending this monstrous presidency that has been devastating not only to America, but to the world.

We’re tired of the “old soft shoe” from Republican apologists. Mitch the Bitch should do his part to first reopen the government, then not interfere when the Democratic-led House of Representatives sends articles of impeachment to the Senate.

It’s time to start healing this nation by impeaching Trump and removing him from office. In fact, it’s the only kind of MAGA we went to see.


Buzzfeed editors are now defending the veracity of their story:

The back and forth could go on all night, so readers of The Shinbone Star should expect updates on this matter in tomorrow morning’s Trumplandia column.

      1. The craziness that’s going on over here has to be seen to be believed. I know you guys have some very serious alt-right garbage to wade through before you can toss Individual #1 into the garbage pail of ignominy, but we must be the only country in the damn world that’s voted to punch itself in the face and then has to cough up 40 billion quid for the privilege. It’s almost like something out of that Monty Python show that you fellas like so much 🙂

  1. Hopeful story but Believing this is the straw that broke the camel’s back is dangerous without convincing corroboration. Watched CNN interview w reporter last night with Don Lemon.. He left me titilated and unconvinced. He admitted never seeing documents, only hearsay.
