RNC HEADQUARTERS, TRUMP TOWER — The ever-mercurial Donald Trump is at it again.
Maybe it is because retired Lieut. Gen. Michael Flynn is, so far, the only Democrat which the soon-to-be 45th president has tapped as part of his essential inner circle.
Flynn was one of the first persons named by the mega-billionaire as part of his White House staff. As National Security Advisor, Senate confirmation is not required.
But now, Flynn has been discarded by The Trump Organization/Office of the President-Elect (the two are synonymous).
Mr. Trump is having a most intense bromance with Putin, whose minions did their very best to throw the election to the most unqualified American presidential candidate since Zachary Taylor.
In any event, associate solitary reporter Johanna Jones, whose head is spinning at all the gyrations going on here in Trump Tower, once again pulled off a major scoop: moments ago, Trump called on his top security thugs to toss Flynn out on the street.
“Go tell the world,” Trump told Jones, “that my National Security Advisor will be Julian Assange."
When Jones bravely interrupted Trump to point out that the WikiLeaks founder holds Australian citizenship and has been holed up In the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since August 2012 because of allegations of sexual assault and rape in Sweden, the president-elect said, “I don’t give a holy s__t about that. Assange hates Hillary even more than I do, and that’s what’s really important to me.”
“Not only that, I like Julian’s attitudes about women."
“On January 20 I will be in command of 17 different so-called 'intelligence’ agencies,” Trump continued, “and I don’t believe a single one. That’s why Julian will be standing right next to me when I have my hands on the nuclear trigger.”
The Obama Administration opened a criminal investigation into the activities of WikiLeaks, founded by Assange, in 2010.
Don’t expect that criminal investigation to continue after January 20.
