in response to reader comment: Running Out of Shoes to Drop

And more shoes are dropping; can't quite keep up with all the noise of partisan bickering; or like the sixties, when Khrushchev used to pound his shoe on his podium when he heard something he did not like.
President Trump has been given another reason for the opposition to grunt and growl over his being president; clamoring that he does not have the right to choose the next Supreme Court Justice after the unfortunate passing of Associate Justice Ginsberg. Challenging his prerogative to make that next choice, they again seek to abrogate Constitutional authority for the covetousness of power that drives them totally out of reach of reality. They really have no basis to make that negative assertion, but they try; oh, how they try
When it is all said and done, however it turns out, it will never be said that President Trump was not controversial. The more they hated him, the more he gave them reasons to; they never did, and never will, understand the enigma that is President Trump.
