Mueller will get Trump, I said this before, and I will say it again.

I will add this,... that getting him will take some time....But,...Mueller will get Trump

And that will be clear to all..It will ironclad. No doubt at all..

Why?...Mueller is an ex head of the FBI, and has some experience in investigating people. A friend of his, and also an ex head of the FBI, was embarrassed and fired by Trump. Further, Mueller has hired some of the best and most experienced investigators in the country to get Trump..each experienced in special areas of investigation................including the mob...

Furthermore, Trump has made some mistakes in the last couple of years. His arrogance goes with what we see.. Mueller will find those mistakes and indict Jared and maybe Trump himself...

I will say it again. Mueller will get Trump. ..When Trump fires Mueller for indicting Jared, then Watergate will be repeated. Trump will resign......again..it may not be in ways we expect. or when we expect..but Mueller will get Trump

About making stupid mistakes, on live TV.... and an apology..2 hours later.


On Morning Joe this morning.....Bret Stephens NYT columnist said..... on live TV the following:

STEPHENS: "Precisely because the State Department is also part of the machinery of government. And that machinery has to run in order for normal things to happen. Like having relationships with foreign countries, or having consular services for U.S. people, or for doing all sorts of things the State Department has to do.

And Tillerson seems to be of a kind of Maoist school in which it's like -- maybe it's Pol Pot, uh, well --"
2 hours later........an apology from Stephens:

"I let rhetorical exuberance get the better of me. RT in no way PP, not remotely or by analogy. I apologize., (BLS)

Meaning ???... This fellow said something very stupid and insensitive about the Sec of State Tillerson. Why ? I guess Tillerson has not filled a number of jobs that need to be filled.. Basically, Stephens compared Tillerson to Pol Pot..the Cambodian dictator that killed millions..This was not smart, and wrong. .....
Yes, this did happen. Wrong things are said on live TV. People get carried away with rhetoric and themselves.
________________ ___________________________________________________________________

So..2 hours later, today, he apologizes to everyone..." I let rhetorical exuberance get the better of me. RT in no way PP, not remotely or by analogy. I apologize " . said by Stephens....link to apology story: TPM:


NOTE:.....While stupid comments on live TV are very common in today's world.. Apologies, just 2 hours later are not so common. While it might not seem like this is important, I think it is. Adults make apologies for mistakes as soon as possible. It is honest and correct thing to do, and here is an example of someone doing it.....This happened today..8/22/17, this morning......
...In today's world, many run and hide, and never apologize for any kind of mistake. That is what a very young child might do who doesn't know what to do and has never been taught. That is what a dog or cat might do.. At least in one instance, the correct action was taken. That action was to apologize as soon as possible..And that is what happened today. It is a moment in time that might be overlooked. That is the reason I posted this..

"One side in Charlettesville was bad and one side was violent", Trump says


CNN) — President Donald Trump, in a staggering, impromptu news conference in New York on Tuesday, blamed the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend on both sides of the conflict -- equating the white supremacists on one side with the "alt-left" on the other side -- after his top White House aides spent days trying to clean up after Trump's initial vague response to the violence.

The news conference laid bare his unvarnished view of who was to blame for the violence and what he thinks about the nationwide effort to remove statues of Confederate leaders. Trump's comments were the latest in what has been a jaw-dropping saga ever since the President made his first vague statement on the violence, blaming the conflicts on "many sides." The comments also made clear that Trump's speech on Monday -- which vociferously blamed the violence on the "alt-right" and neo-Nazi groups who initiated the protest -- was largely a sterilized version of his view

"What about the 'alt-left' that came charging at, as you say, the 'alt-right,' do they have any semblance of guilt?" Trump asked. "What about the fact they came charging with clubs in hands, swinging clubs, do they have any problem? I think they do."

He added: "You had a group on one side that was bad and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent. nobody wants to say it, but I will say it right now."

Saying "both sides caused this" .a second time.......will sink him

He has speeded up the process. He is so wrong, and bringing this up again was the stupidest thing he could have done. He couldn't leave it alone. Only time will tell. He could be gone a lot sooner than we thought. By adding fire to this on Tuesday, this one idea will stay alive the rest of the week. And this will always be "him"
As we think back, this is it..

About Stuart G

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.
