There are very few things which make both Donald Trump and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo happy.
Cuomo had called for the resignation of the Empire State’s Attorney General, Eric Schneiderman, after The New Yorker published an article accusing the Democrat of sexual improprieties.
But Trump has been growing increasingly frustrated with newbie goofhead lawyer Rudy Giuliani (https://www.politico.com/story/2018/05/07/trump-giuliani-fallout-stormy-daniels-573196); https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2018/05/05/swamp-diary-giuliani-trump-218321).
So, with associate solitary reporter Johanna Jones looking on, Trump dispatched Giuliani to Morgantown, West Virginia to beat up convicted felon Don Blankenship in today’s Republican primary.
This was not at all pleasing to Giuliani, who, like Trump, is a New Yorker through and through. For Giuliani, West Virginia is a foreign nation.
“I can easily take care of myself,” Giuliani told associate solitary reporter Susanna Sherman, “and I totally get it that all three of the Republican Senate candidates in West Virginia are trying to outTrump each other.”
“But to tell you the truth, Susanna,” Giuliani continued, “it makes me unusually edgy when the man whom I thought was my close personal friend seemingly does not appreciate every single golden word which I utter from my magnificent mouth.”
To distract his base from the drenching storm, in just a few hours, Trump will undo a carefully crafted agreement negotiated between President Obama’s Secretary of State, John Kerry, with Iran’s Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif.
This is not pleasing to European leaders.
To his credit, Kerry has been meeting with Zarif to salvage the complex agreement; but that set off Trump yet again (https://www.politico.com/story/2018/05/07/trump-john-kerry-iran-deal-571575).
Associate solitary reporter Melissa Smith says “We here at AP really want Joe Mancin to be re-elected, and Blankenship could be the next Judge Roy Moore, and since Trump and McConnell both hate Blankenship, there must be something good about him."
