The message below brings to mind a New Yorker cartoon from many years ago, in which an obviously unhappy lawyer is reading out the beginning of a will to the beneficiaries, the first line of which is, “I, Emperor Claude VI of Nebraska, being of sound mind . . .”
If you make Trump’s supporters mad then who’s really at fault for any unpleasantness that may result?
Lindsey Graham, of South Carolina, made his remarks about the ex-president while speaking to Fox News’s Sunday Night in America, hosted by Trey Gowdy, a former Republican congressman from the same state.
Graham said: “Most Republicans, including me, believe when it comes to Trump, there is no law. It’s all about getting him. There’s a double standard when it comes to Trump.”
Alleging a failure by the FBI to investigate Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s son, Graham added: “I’ll say this, if there’s a prosecution of Donald Trump for mishandling classified information, after the Clinton debacle … there’ll be riots in the streets.”
Do they have gentle reminders where you work? Here in academia we have a lot of those, as in a “gentle reminder” that you haven’t turned in the form you were supposed to turn in seven months ago, which to be fair is probably a useless survey of some sort, but still.
I mean it’s gotten to the point where people start off by automatically apologizing for sending you an email about your job responsibilities! Hence the “gentle reminders.”
Where was I? Oh yes: A gentle reminder that Donald Trump is going to be the official Republican candidate for president in about 18 months, after all the primaries are cancelled.
