How angelic can a crook look? Know now the Price of lice has fallen! Let us pray that Stinky Zinke is next to plunge from our spacious skies into the slime of the swamp.
An augur here? Could this herald the coming fall of the greatest con man in the annals of featherless bipeds? The dump of chump Drumpf into the sump of corruption? Oremus.
OK, an end to the word play. Tom Price, the former Georgia congressman who used to rail against government waste (the innocent pictured here), is out as head of the Department of Health and Human Services, taking with him more than a million bucks in luxury travel expenses billed to us. That’s in a mere five months! More members of Reichsleiter Trump’s cabinet are reported to have their hands in the federal travel till, including the aforementioned Zinke, Secretary of the Interior, and the charming newly wed Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin, who took his equally charming new trophy bride abroad for their dreamy honeymoon on our Visa.
Why would life-long Republicans in good standing do such a thing? I could give you any number of possible motives, but perhaps the most charitable is they want to alert their buddies still toiling in the private sector that there’s better pickings in government, where the “management” doesn’t care much about what they do and the bennies are unlimited.
Some peevish quibblers will point out that every American administration has its scandals, some minor, some major. Well, I only have knowledge of the subject going back to the Herbert Hoover administration, and by my calculation Trump and his gang are on their way to set a record for sleaze and theft that will never be equaled—kind of like Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game hitting streak.
All of which leads me to ask all if the XXII Amendment to the US Constitution can be fudged, evaded or modified in some way? You know, to bring back Barack—the one president who was scandal free...and that over eight years!
