Still More Proof That Dolt-45 Was Nuttier Than a Boxcar of Almonds

[Former president Donald] Trump once proposed launching “missiles into Mexico to destroy the drug labs”.

According to [Trump's Defense Secretary Mike] Esper, Trump said “no one would know it was us”, because he would simply deny responsibility. Esper said he would have thought Trump was joking, had he not been looking at the president as he said it
.

Trump was just nuts. As time went on in his administration, The TOFF kept losing more and more of his mind.

He was not helped by people like his Staff Nazi, Stephen Miller, whose idea of a good time was committing atrocities:

Miller is also alleged to have suggested severing the head of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, an Islamic State leader killed by the US, dipping it in pig’s blood and parading it as a warning to other terrorists.

Esper says he told Miller that would be a “war crime”. To the New York Times, Miller denied the episode and called Esper a “moron”.

But let's not honor Esper for telling the truth. He had plenty of opportunities to tell the American people what a dangerous and unhinged lunatic was sitting behind the Resolute Desk. Esper could have talked to a reporter the day after he was fired and said "look, this guy is totally unhinged" and explained why that was so. But he didn't. Esper kept his yap shut for eighteen months until he could profit the most from telling his tale. Which is a move that is almost Trumpian in its avarice.

My recommendation is that if you want to read his book, get it from your local library.

Meth-head ...

For some, power and greed trumps doing what you can for your country. Even when the possible outcome of silence is the dissolution of democracy.

Idiotlogically for Esper, I guess it may work out, but we'll have to wait until May 10th to see to initial sales numbers. I hope it's a Trumpian wreck.

And it totally would have worked too if not for those meddling libs. To fool everyone the missiles would have had the Chinese symbol on them- that's a panda, right?

There are a lot of people in T$$$p's circle who are now pushing books pointing out all the wrong and outrageous things he did or wanted to do. It looks like they are just as opportunistic and loyal as they the guy they had allied themselves with before. TFG must have identified with them because he recognized his fellow birds and their feathers thus they flocked together. It's all about the money and power not decency or patriotism.
