|Rod Rosenstein greets Elizabeth Warren|
"We're sick and tired of having to fight the Republican Party tooth and nail on every single issue," Chuck Schumer said.
Schumer is the kissin' cousin of Amy Schumer, the vagina-centric comedienne who's as funny as a box of dead kittens. He is also the Democratic Senate Minority Leader and Hall Monitor and holds the American record for Most Developed Nostrils.
This demand for all Republican members of all three branches of government began when Democrats called for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to resign because he reportedly decided not to appoint a special prosecutor in the investigation into alleged Russian meddling in our presidential election in which Hillary Clinton miserably lost.
Clinton swears it wasn't her fault she lost to Donald Trump, so it must have been that Trump cheated. Yeah, that's the ticket.
The Democrats claim that there is a chance the Trump campaign colluded with Russia due to Vladimir Putin's intense dislike for both Hillary and Chelsea Clinton. You see, as a young child, Vladimir was once terrified when waking up in bed next to a beheaded Howdy Doody puppet that his older brother put on his pillow. Now whenever he sees Chelsea, he is reminded of the horror.
Now the entire Democratic Party is on board to rid the nation of the Republican Party "once and for all."
"I support @SenatorDurbin's call for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to resign if he is unwilling to appoint a special counsel," Sen. Dianne Feinsten (Ditz--Calif.) tweeted.
Democrats and the fake media were hoping Rosenstein would appoint a special prosecutor, perhaps Rachel Maddow, after James Comey was fired Tuesday. This appalled the party of the far left, CNN and MSNBC--but I repeat myself.
"This morning, the president tweeted a thinly veiled threat to Mr. Comey," Sen. Dick Durbin (Dick--Ill.) said, "which could be construed as threatening a witness in this investigation, which is another violation of federal law. To preserve his reputation as a credible prosecutor, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein must appoint who I say he must appoint, to pursue criminal charges or he must resign . . . I have spoken."
Dick Durbin was referring to a Trump tweet that read: "James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!"
It is unclear why President Trump used scare quotes around the word 'tapes,' and why he used an exclamation point at the end of his sentence as he often does.
The Democrats used this tweet to compare Trump to Richard Nixon and how he was caught by the recordings he made of Oval Office conversations. And while those tapes weren't a tenth as interesting as video of Bill Clinton would have been if there were any tapes of him in the same room, the notion that Trump would have been ensnared by the tapes don't make sense--it was Trump who brought them up, if they exist. Ironically, it was Bill Clinton who was the only other president to fire his FBI director.
So there they go again--conflating two unrelated events by attaching the idea of "tapes" to them. [Scare quotes are acceptable in that sentence.]
Rosenstein was originally at the center of the foofaraw over Comey's firing from the FBI. First Trump said he was fired due to Rosenstein's recommendation. Then Trump said he would have fired Comey himself even without Rosenstein's input.
Trump's apparent impetuous statements screwed up the messaging of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, Principal Deputy White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Vice President Mike Pence. Aside from that, everything was okay.
Mr. Trump said that he wants the investigation into Russian collusion to be "absolutely done properly," after assuring the public that there was no "there" there.
Thus far, Rod Rosenstein, President Trump, Vice President Pence, the Republicans in the House and Senate, have no plans of resigning; nor does the remainder of the Republican Party.
Deal with it.
