“This is definitely an ‘are you fucking kidding me?’ kinda day.”
Monica Lewinsky tweet
The mindblowing hypocrisy and unmitigated gall of former independent counsel Ken Starr joining President Donald Trump’s impeachment defense team surprised all of us, but it shocked Monica Lewinsky, the former White House intern and former President Bill Clinton’s favorite humidor to the point that she channeled the short-fingered vulgarian by posting this tweet punctuated with an expletive.
Lewinsky’s sexual relationship with Slick Willy led to his impeachment in 1998, and it made Starr a conservative darling for heading the investigation.
The former White House intern didn’t explicitly make it clear that her tweet was a reference to the hiring of Starr and his successor as independent counsel, Robert Ray, by Trump’s defense team, but you don’t have to be a rocket scientist, presidential historian or a political pundit to connect the dots.
I feel you Monica, every day since Trump was inaugurated as president of the United States has been an “are you fucking kidding me kinda day.”
We can only hope that our long national nightmare will end sooner rather than later, and the Republican Senators will finally do the right thing and remove Trump from office, leading all of us to exclaim in relief and astonishment:
This is an are you fucking kidding me kinda day!
