Shorter Trump: "Nice Government You Have Here. Too Bad if Something Were to Happen it It."

[Oval Office Occupant] Donald Trump, emboldened by Republican election wins in the Senate and scornful of GOP candidates he felt didn’t sufficiently embrace his support, delivered a stark warning to the new Democratic House majority on Wednesday: Investigate me, and I’ll investigate you — and the government will grind to a halt.

Noting that his Republican Party retained control of the Senate on Tuesday, he said that if Democrats in the House come after him, “we’ve got” a thing called the U.S. Senate.
I respectfully suggest that the response should be a reasonably polite variant of "game on, motherfucker".

Meanwhile, Commandante Bone Spurs lost no time throwing out Jeff Sessions and replacing him with a Grade-B Lacky, who apparently is more in tune with "whatever Trump wants and fuck the rule of law."

His entire speech reminded me of Tony Soprano, but rougher around the edges...quite the trick.

Wow. Republican threatening to be an asshole. In other news, the Pacific Ocean is threatening to be moist. Fuck you, Pacific. We got boats now.

It's not like it's even a threat....the guy is a pyro in a fireworks factory or an airport tank farm. He got matches and there's nothing he likes better than an inferno. This he describes as leadership and tough bargaining. This is not a threat or even a promise; a conflagration is as inevitable as the action of gravity. Nero was a piker.
