Obama Warned Trump about Michael Flynn!

The New York Times just reported that President Obama warned Trump after the election that hiring Michael Flynn to his national security team would be ill-advised. Now, boys and girls, get ready for the fun to start.

I predict Trump’s response will be simply, “That’s a lie.  That’s fake news!”  And is spin machine is now furiously working on how to cover for Trump once again.  Shortly Sean Spicer, the Press Secretary, will be facing the media and we will see another display of his non-sense.

And, of course, the base of his party will blame Obama, accusing him of lying.  And, in their line of thinking, they might have a point as they believe the Lord has placed Trump in charge of our government and certainly the Lord, the Essence of Truth Himself, would not put a liar in the office, would He???

The leadership of the GOP will respond lamely, afflicted of the same illness of Trump, a complete inability to admit to having made any mistake.  Meanwhile, Trump’s overt dishonesty and general lack of character continues to unfold and eventually the only way to stop a complete unraveling of his administration will be to provoke a war.  And, of course, his supporters will be quick to say, “Atta boy!”

Seriously, I’m not as cynical or hopeless as I seem.  I’m in this for the long-run and this current “tempest in a teapot” in human history will find resolution, though possibly long after my allotted “three-score and then” have passed.  Shakespeare felt, like I do, “There is a Divinity that doeth shape our end, rough hew it how we may.”
