Damn! Another Totally Boring Day at the US Capitol; Klobuchar's Pick for AG; Why We're Alarmed About Trump; Umpire-in-Chief Chastises Counsel and McConnell

George Conway, a SuperLawyer who’s never been in the SuperBowl, is married to Donald Trump’s Sychophant-in-Chief, Kellyanne Conway.


Before he married Kellyanne, he dated Laura Ingraham (why would he want do that?)


Yesterday, Kellyanne was asked how Trump celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. Day.


She said that he was preparing for his trip to Davos.


She also said that MLK would not have approved of the impeachment of Trump.


Yet another totally outrageous statement from Trump’s Counselor.


Though her husband, George, is a Republican and a conservative, we here at AP have often applauded him for his candor in calling out Trump & Co.


Which is what he did today, when he said that Trump is “virtually incapable of telling the truth" (https://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2020/01/22/george-conway-intv-trump-lies-impeachment-tapper-sot-vpx.cnn).


Associate solitary reporter Johanna Jones was with Trump and associate solitary reporter Eddie Cook, Trump’s advance man for the Davos trip (see yesterday’s post, https://www.apocryphalpress.com/2020/01/21/trump-is-denied-entrance-to-switzerland-to-attend-the-world-economic-forum-in-davos/).


There, we reported that Prince Albert II of Monaco had offered political asylum to Trump as long as Trump would spend millions losing money in the Prince’s casinos.


When Bush Two nominated Judge Roberts to be our Chief Justice, at his confirmation, the good Judge said he views the role of Judge as being an Umpire.


Which is what he got to do yesterday as he presided at Trump’s Impeachment trial.


He chided counsel for Trump and for the House, reminded the Senators that the Senate is supposed to maintain its Tradition of being “the world’s most deliberative body,” but that to maintain its reputation, Senators must be civil to each other (https://www.cnn.com/2020/01/22/politics/john-roberts-scolds-legal-teams-senate-trial-chief-justice/index.html).


He advised counsel to avoid being Pettifoggers. But Moscow Mitch had to look up what that is, and, it took him a long time, but eventually McConnell realized that the Chief Justice was chiding him as well as counsel.


But Moscow Mitch McConnell is never civil to Democrats.


He’s grossly betrayed his oath to do impartial justice in Trump’s impeachment trial, where the Senators are sequestered and where the media have very limited access to the Senators (all because of Moscow Mitch).


But Congressman Adam Schiff (D-Cal.), the Chair of the House Intel Committee, is a really good lawyer.


Which is why our Chief Congressional Correspondent, associate solitary reporter Melissa Smith, asked Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) whom she plans to appoint as her Attorney General after she is inaugurated as our President on January 21,  2021.


“Melissa,” Klobuchar said, “that’s easy. Of course it’ll be Schiff!”


While in Davos, Trump blustered, hollered, and, once again, whined against people such as courageous climate change activist Greta Thunberg. He called them “alarmists” (https://www.politico.com/news/2020/01/21/donald-trump-davos-climate-change-101327).


Which makes us here at AP all the more alarmed.
