Kansas City Presidents Day Postscript: Prez Trump, McCabe, Truman & The Wall!!!
At the end of Presidents Day talk of high crimes and higher walls dominated the nightly chat shows.
Forgive this town's worst blogger for thinking that anything related to McCabe was about that 70s movie where Warren Beatty played an Old West pimp.
Turns out the conversation is more serious . . .
BBC: Trump lashes out at 'treasonous' officials after McCabe interview
We won't pretend to understand much related to the "deep state" if only because we don't want to get deported and it's a bit of a downer for this otherwise fun filled Prez day full of discount merch from China courtesy of so many other GOP leaders who were far more capitalist & big-biz-orientated than Prez Donald.
Thing of it is, here in KC, Prez Truman is still the all-time cowtown fave thanks to his local roots, racist mother-in-law and connection to our glory days of municipal corruption.
Meanwhile, the current Prez is writing his own history that might end with an EPIC wall, a scathing indictment or Oprah putting one lucky Democratic Party lady in the White House -- Her greatest giveaway yet.
Here are some links to ponder amid the overnight for our shift worker, insomniac and night owl denizens.
