The Shaggy Defense

But she caught me on the counter (It wasn’t me)
Saw me bangin’ on the sofa (It wasn’t me)
I even had her in the shower (It wasn’t me)
She even caught me on camera (It wasn’t me)
She saw the marks on my shoulder (It wasn’t me)
Heard the words that I told her (It wasn’t me)
Heard the screams get louder (It wasn’t me)
She stayed until it was over

The ridiculous denials of Deranged Donald to the Ukraine allegations really do parody the old Shaggy song about infidelity, “It Wasn’t Me.” Heck even Trump’s good buddy Chris Christie nearly choked when he learned of the “transcribed” confession.

Imagine the hubris to openly do Putin’s bidding yet somehow believe cries of “Witch hunt”and “Presidential Harassment” will shield your actions from scrutiny. Why is it that our so called President feels and acts like he can shoot someone in the face in broad daylight and get away with it? Who does he think will believe the obvious manure he peddles?

The truth is Trump knows that so long as he continues to advance the primary interests of his supporters they don’t care that he uses the office of Presidency to advance his own self interests. That was the deal that put him into the office in the first place. He’d advance the agendas of the Raptureheads, Russia enabled military hawks and racist status quo dependent deplorables in return for their undying pledge of loyalty. Welcome to the Don the Con’s Crime Syndicate.

The sad reality is each denial Trump brazenly utters, each tweetstorm he ignites, is done not to clear his name, but to reinforce the art of the deal. His enablers don’t actually believe his denials. They don’t need to. Cognitive dissonance is a powerful force and so long as 45 provides them a few sound bites, conspiracy theories and alternative facts to afford them plausible deniability, this caravan of criminal and coconspirators will bury their head and move on to the next scandal unfettered.

Trump uses the Shaggy Defense in response to each scandal not because he thinks the majority will believe him, but to troll the deep state and his opposition. He takes the opportunity to delight his enablers with reminders of promises kept and platitudes of even greater things to come all while knowing he is untouchable.

Put Putin aside for the moment and ignore the real life implications it would have if Trump was indeed a Russian asset. Consider instead that Trump was placed into power by puppeteers like Preacher Pence, Bishop Pompeo and Brother Barr, the leaders of the American Taliban. Fine patriots who openly admit their allegiance is to God before country, and who seek salvation in the creation of a new world order. In Jesus’s name, amen.

It’s no coincidence that between his cries of “It wasn’t me!” Devout Donald made a sudden appearance at his recent press conference. Took the stage long enough to preen about being the first President in history to host a U.N. meeting on religious persecution and the need “to promote American values…I’m so surprised…I spoke to Franklin Graham about that. I can’t believe it…on protecting religious freedom and liberty for people around the world.”

The literal golden calf, but a means to an end.

Glance backstage and watch his other handlers pull his strings and openly applaud the “deconstruction” of our democracy. The merry bannon of American deplorables who tune out all fake news media sources and get their news direct from Fox News or funneled straight from Twitler’s Twitter stream. Take in the conspiracy theory laden memes, overt dog whistles and alternative facts spewn to enrage the dark underbelly of American society. Pieces of red meat tossed like bait to entice the Proud Boys and nationalist militias out of the shadows and into service. Each sardonic cry of “it wasn’t me!” echoing as a rallying cry for the masses to rise up in an insurrection against the party elites, and drain the swamp of anyone who dares interfere with the mission to make America great (white) again!

Democrats cannot take their foot off the pedal for even one second, let alone two weeks, on this Impeachment inquiry. They must seize the narrative and drive the daily headlines from here on out. Choke our so called President of the oxygen he needs to deliver on his promises and treat him like the clear and present danger he is. The point of no return is here. You can’t just poke at a cancer, you need to remove it and burn everything in its vicinity.

This time do not accept “Witchhunt” and “Presidential harassment” as legitimate defense. Stay on the story until it’s conclusion. Stop falling for false narratives and manufactured storylines. This is all a carefully orchestrated reality shit show. It’s called “America’s Dictator – A New World Order.” Instead of a rose ceremony each episode seems to ends with another facet of our democracy engaging in a dramatic round of Russian Roulette. The longer we allow this game to continue the greater the odds that a bullet will fire and strike at the very heart of our democracy #ImpeachNow
