“President Donald Trump has taken to bashing the ongoing Russia investigation in a whole new way-bemoaning the effect the probe has had on the `young and beautiful lives … with stars in their eyes.`
The odd tweet, written by the president on Sunday, is something of a change of tack from recent messages slamming the probe, which have largely taken aim at Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
`Who`s going to give back the young and beautiful lives (and others) that have been devastated and destroyed by the phony Russia Collusion Witch Hunt?` Trump wrote, although he did not go into details about which beautiful people had been affected by the probe.
`They journeyed down to Washington, D.C., with stars in their eyes and wanting to help our nation…They went back home in tatters!` the tweet added.
Like most of Donald Trump`s tweets this one is absurd, untrue and perplexing, and one day I will kick myself in the ass for wasting so much the analyzing his tweets.
So far Mueller`s team has either indicted or obtained guilty pleas from 19 people and three companies, and none of these people can be described as “young and beautiful.”
George Papadopoulos, 30, and Alex van der Zwaan, 33, are young, but I would hardly characterize either one as “beautiful.”
Most of the individuals ensnared in Mueller`s probe are characters with decades of experience in the black arts of influence peddling and bribing foreign officials. I hardly think the likes of Roger Stone and Paul Manafort joined Trump`s campaign with stars in their eyes, dollar bills maybe.
Ivanka and Jared Kushner can be described as “young and beautiful,” if plastic-looking white devils gets your rocks off, but unfortunately they haven`t gone home yet.
Trump did get one thing right, anyone who joins his administration goes back home with his reputation in tatters.
I can`t wait for the day when Trump is impeached and he returns to Trump Tower with his reputation in tatters.
