We always thought that Donald Trump loves nothing better than to lash out at anyone who disagrees with him.
And that he goes to extraordinary lengths to have multiple opportunities to do so.
Which is why we can’t understand why he’s not in our Nation’s Capital today, anywhere near Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s bunker in the Capitol, preparing to defend himself against well-justified Articles of Impeachment.
Instead, he’s about to arrive in Davos, in eastern Switzerland, to attend the World Economic Forum.
After all, brave climate activist Greta Thunberg is there, where she challenged the 3,000 world leaders in atendance to do something significant about our very serious climate crisis (https://www.cnn.com/2020/01/21/business/greta-thunberg-davos/index.html)
But associate solitary reporter and Denver GOP Chairman Eddie Cook knows why Trump is not on his way to Switzerland.
Cook was part of the advance team preparing luxury accomodations for Trump.
“As soon as I arrived at the airport in Geneva,” Cook texted us, “I was met by Ueli Maurer, the President of the Federal Council of Switzerland.”
“I have to say, Herr Maurer was polite, but he very firmly told me that Mr. Trump is not allowed to enter his country.”
“So, being equally polite, I asked him why.”
“Then,” Cook continued, "President Maurer said that he had carefully read Nancy Pelosi’s charge to her Impeachment Mangers; then he listened to Ms. Thunberg, who moved him to tears; and then he convened an emergency meeting of the Swiss Federal Council, which unanimously voted to deny My Hero entrance.”
“But then he graciously, and most diplomatically, told me that he had made special arrangements, with Prince Albert II of Monaco, for Mr. Trump to stay there for several days, until he is removed from office, before he can retire in comfort to Mar-a-Lago.”
“Oh, one more thing,” Cook said. “He said that Prince Albert is doing this for Mr. Trump because he, the Prince, is a distant cousin of Prince Albert Kenwood, a prominent citizen of Lakewood, Colorado, who is a past recipient of a MacArthur Genius Award for his expertise in computer science."
