George H.W. Bush Has A Ready-Made Excuse. Time For Jimmy Carter To Catch A Cold.
The only thing we cats regret about the ballooning number of Congress members who are boycotting the Orange Man-Child's big day on Friday is that they announced it in advance.
Wouldn't it have been funny if they'd just not shown up — and left the Trumpsters scrambling to fill the empty seats?
Well, we won't quibble. It's already pretty swell that 65 Democrats have said they'll be otherwise engaged — and the statements they've made about their reasons are moving and eloquent. (We bet that the news that the FBI is investigating the Trumpsters and cash from Russia might move a few more off the fence, too.)
So, there are three ways that the Orange Man-Child could choose to handle this situation:
1. Do a mea culpa — as close as he comes to an apology — and invite the 65 Democrats to show up to demonstrate that January 20 is a pro-America event, not a celebration of all things Trump.
2. Attack the 65 and tweet, "Screw you. Putin & Bannon & Conway & Pieface & I will wipe the floor with you scum."
3. Ignore the whole sorry mess as best he can.
We think #2 is most likely, although #3 is a definite possibility. The first? Impossible. Not only is Trump personally incapable of it, but Putin would tell him not to. We cats HISS.
