But you know what?

I'd submit that Trump is President right now ... mainly because a lot of people find his cartoon-like, outlandish buffoonery 'entertaining'.

I think it may be worth facing the fact that as long as the f***** is in place, we're dealing with a freaking Reality Show situation in Washington.

Turning around and pulling a stunt like making Hillary Clinton the Speaker of the House ... would be a move that I would consider 'beating him at his own game'.

It'd pretty much be like the most epic cat-fight on "The Bachelor", writ large.

Do I LIKE that politics has devolved to this? HELL NO!

But ... it is the reality with which we must deal ATM.

I think it's a move for Dems ... that's worth considering ...

It could quite possibly go down as the most giant, in-your-face FU ... of all time.

And he basically says "FU!" to US ... every single day, esp. with his appointments. "Former Head of Dow Chemical named new EPA Chief by Trump" ... that kinda shit.

Time for some righteous payback!
