When our Dear Leader got Vlad’s permission to become President of the United States, Donald J. Trump promised to bring “the best people” to Washington with him. Little did we know that the chosen “best” would literally come and go in droves, like thieves in the night. Most of them turned out to be less than the best, however. Some quit, some were “replaced,” and some just absconded with all the loot they could cram into a U-Haul, not waiting to be the next victim of our Commander-in-chief’s friendly fire. Yep. Trump’s “best” don’t last long, but are purged at the whim of Il Duce himself.
We regret to inform you that yet another loyal, high-ranking “best” bit the proverbial dust last week. That latest among the fallen would be former Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, who was terminated (resigned or fired?) last Sunday in a border-skirmish with Trump himself. Her crime? She had lied to Congress for him; she had backed him on building the Great Wall of Porosity; she even went along with stealing immigrant children from their parents at the border. But she balked when he asked her to turn away asylum-seekers and their kids; that was against the law.
The Nordic ice queen remained gracious in departure, though, expressing her gratitude to Trump for being allowed to serve in his administration, perhaps with a strategic eye to finding employment in corporate America where her kind are not unappreciated.
Our President immediately appointed Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan to fill the open position. According to The New York Times and CNN, Trump told the newcomer to close the border to asylum-seekers and tell them our country was “full;” he would pardon Kevin if he were convicted of a crime.
Gosh, golly and gee wilikers! Isn’t it a crime to order others to commit illegal acts? Used to be. Is the New Order of Gauleiter Trump upon us already?
Shouldn’t impeachment proceedings against you-know-who begin about now?
