Trumpites (the few still remaining) all around the USA are rushing to bookstores to give themselves and their mostly untrusted GOP Members of Congress the new book by fired Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie, Trump’s deputized campaign manager and the president and chairman of Citizens United. Their book is Let Trump Be Trump (https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/12/04/paul-manafort-and-me-216004), an obvious nod to the millions of benighted Reagan followers who let Reagan by Reagan and thereby made America worse again in the process — a prelude to the charade that some call leadership in Washington. Yup, that’s Citizens United, the group that made Supreme Court law declaring that corporations are people. On this point, please visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ws0WSNRpy3g — a musical gift to the world from Tamworth, New Hampshire, with exquisite piano accompaniment from associate solitary reporter Patricia Johannson.
Lewandowski’s piece is “I’ve Got A Crook Running My Campaign: Paul Manafort, Donald Trump, and Me.” Your solitary reporter once spotted Manafort on a shuttle bus at Washington National Airport. Manafort was infuriated that his flight from JFK to Kiev might be delayed. The solitary reporter went up to Manafort and told him that his purported “management” of any GOP candidate would be doomed to failure. How wrong could your solitary reporter, a Denver-based Democratic operative, be?
In his excerpt in yesterday’s Politico, Lewandowski tells his Trumploving readers that during last year’s campaign, Trump tossed numerous f-bombs at Manafort for telling Communications Director Hope Hicks to cancel all Trump’s TV shows. Then, Steve Bannon found out that the Times was about to publish an article documenting Manafort’s nefarious dealings with Ukraine’s pro-Russian political party, the Party of Regions. Manafort was paid some $12.7 million for his work for Putin puppet and once Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych (Ві́ктор Фе́дорович Януко́вич). Yanukovych owns a dacha in the Moscow area which he bought for a paltry $52 million in 2014 after fleeing from Ukraine. Associate solitary reporter Foma Kheroshonsky, based in Moscow, has pounded many times on Yanukovych’s door, only to have stale borscht thrown in his face.
From Minnesota to Alabama, all eyes are on powerful male predators who took advantage of women. But as associate solitary reporter Susanna Sherman notes, Al Franken apologized, while Judge Roy (“Good Ol’ Boy) Moore is in total denial.
