Last Monday, President Trump exited the front of Trump Tower with a Lady Bushmaster semiautomatic pistol borrowed from his daughter Ivanka. He insulted the doorman on his way out, stating the guy’s hair looked fake, then stepped into the middle of Fifth Avenue. He was looking for a non-employee to shoot. Donald had a point to prove. The first person he saw happened to be an African-Mexican American who was Muslim, transgender, gay, a Democrat from California, and an undocumented immigrant. The president aimed, closed his eyes, and squeezed the pink trigger. (scroll down for full article)

There’s a lot of news this week, but one story stands out.
Last Monday, President Trump exited the front of Trump Tower with a Lady Bushmaster semiautomatic pistol borrowed from his daughter Ivanka. He insulted the doorman on his way out, stating the guy’s hair looked fake, then stepped into the middle of Fifth Avenue. He was looking for a non-employee to shoot. Donald had a point to prove. The first person he saw happened to be an African-Mexican American who was Muslim, transgender, gay, a Democrat from California, and an undocumented immigrant. The president aimed, closed his eyes, and squeezed the pink trigger.
Donald knows his act is wearing thin. He had to do something bigger, better, and more outrageous than anything he’s done thus far, to boost his reelection chances. He set out to prove his January 2016 (at the time, figurative) campaign boast: “I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and wouldn’t lose any voters, OK? It’s, like, incredible.”
The document-lacking, black-Hispanic-hijab-wearing, ambisexual San Francisco liberal was DOA. AOC called the FBI and CIA, but DOJ told her she was SOL. WTF?! The president immediately pardoned himself, then dared Congress to impeach him.
Outraged Democrats did their usual thing after a Trump outrage: went into severe-shaming mode, attempting to embarrass the president into resigning. Pundits characterized these familiar efforts as akin to a fish jumping into the ocean. I’m sorry — that’s supposed to be a fish jumping into the desert.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) held a news conference stating Democrats again are attempting to use the law to embarrass this president, and he won’t stand for it. Leader McConnell said, “this supposed murder is nothing but a nothing burger — it’s nothing.” He reiterated his defense that “at least the victim wasn’t a Chinaman.”
[FUN FACT]: Mitch’s wife is of Chinese descent, and he has benefited reciprocally by millions of dollars in contributions and political favors from his wealthy business-owning in-laws.
Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.) gave a fiery defense of the president in response to what he called “phony Democrat outrage”:
“This is the most unethical sham since I’ve been in politics and if you really wanted to know the truth, you sure as hell wouldn’t have done what you’ve done to this guy! You’re looking for a fair process? You came to the wrong town at the wrong time, my friend. What you want is you want to destroy this guy’s life, hold him accountable for his so-called crime, and hope you win in 2020.”
Oops. Sorry. These were Graham’s remarks at the September 2018 Senate hearings to confirm federal judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Graham added, “Like Judge Kavanaugh, I also like beer. And I also have never passed out from drinking — though I also have fallen asleep.”
Attorney General William P. Barr said this in a hastily called press conference:
“I’m here today to reinterpret the principal conclusions reached by the Manhattan NYPD. In cataloguing the president’s conduct, which took place in public view, the report identifies no actions that, in our judgment, constitute murderous conduct, had a nexus to a pending premeditation, and were done with deadly intent. Besides, c’mon: the guy was an African-Mexican American who was also Muslim, transgender, gay, a Democrat from California, and an undocumented immigrant.”
“Furthermore, no collusion, no obstruction.”
The president’s approval rating has remained steady this week at 42%, a slight bump over July’s numbers. This latest Monmouth University poll was taken over the three days following the Fifth Avenue shooting. Not a single MAGA supporter was lost. ■
