A Socratic Dialogue With Trump about Ethics, Politics and Pussy

Socrates and Trump have a dialogue:

Socrates: Since the Bush-Cheney administration, it has been legal for the NSA to intercept the communications of foreigners. Like Russians. When you and your campaign started having secret dealings with Russia, you should have known that you had no right to privacy under current law.

Trump sticks out his lower lip. No one told me about that he whines, sounding, for a moment, exactly like a great big baby.

Ignorance of the law is no defense, Socrates reminds him.

Who are you calling ignorant?

So you knew that U.S. security might be listening in?

Sure. Full of bravado.

And you did it anyway? You conspired with Russia to commit treason even though you knew that the NSA was probably listening? Why?

I figured the NSA would take my side. The way Comey did.

You thought the agency charged with protecting national security would aid you in making this country less secure? Why?

Because we're all members of the same club. Nudge and a wink. You know. White guys.

White guys have been sent to prison before for racketeering and treason.

Not me!, insists Trump. I'm special.

Special? Why so?

I should be exempt from the usual laws.

Why?

Because I was running for president, says Trump. All is fair in love and war and presidential politics. A presidential candidate is exempt from the law.

So if a presidential candidate has his operatives in Russia illegally intercept the communications of his political opponents, there is nothing wrong with that?

That's right. There is no criminal activity when it comes to politics. Anything goes.

And yet, if the U.S. government intercepted your communications with Russia, that's illegal. Why?

Because the investigations were politically motivated!

Socrates reaches his punch line. Smiling, he says :But you just said anything goes in a political campaign. If the NSA was trying to stop your campaign's criminal activity for political reasons, doesn't that make it ok? Because it's political?

At which point Trump's tiny little brain explodes. But amazingly, his fingers continue to tweet furiously, proving what we have suspected all along, there is no connection between Trump's so called mind and what comes out of his mouth (and tiny hands).

(And sorry. I lied about the pussy. I just figured that sex gets more attention than ethics or politics)
