Yesterday, Donald Trump proclaimed victory after he caved to Nancy Pelosi over his Wall.
To celebrate his big win, Trump decided, on the spur of the moment, to give a tour of his White House grounds, without acknowledging that Nancy Pelosi had ground him into the ground.
At Melania’s suggestion, he invited all sorts of people with whom he does not associate — including Bob Dylan and associate solitary reporter Jim Mangan, who is based in Tucson, where he is the Chair of Pima County Democrats.
As the tour progressed, Dylan, who has much more insight than Trump or Melania into the condition of the world, spotted Roger Stone lurking in the bushes, pretending to be a landscape architect.
Immediately, Dylan broke into his 1966 classic, “Rainy Day Women #12 & 35” (a song that Trump had ever heard):
"Well, they'll stone you when you're trying to be so good
They'll stone you just like they said they would
They'll stone you when you're trying to go home
And they'll stone you when you're there all alone
But I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get stoned”
Hearing this, Stone, who also had never heard that vintage Dylan song, but who was immensely pleased to hear his name, leapt out of the bushes waving his arms in victory, just as he did yesterday after he left the federal court house in Ft. Lauderdale, triumphantly, in the same way as his former mentor, Richard Milhous Nixon, did as he waved to the crowd from the helicopter that took him into exile on August 9, 1974.
Then Robert Mueller, using a megaphone, spoke to the tour group from the Oval Office, where he had planned to take Trump’s deposition.
Stone, hearing Mueller’s voice, leapt over the White House fences and ran straight to the Jefferson Memorial and then to the Potomac, jumped in, and swam to Virginia, hoping never to be seen again by anybody from law enforcement.
