When the #GoldenGate story broke, I wasn't the least bit shocked. I'm almost surprised it was ever reported. The original "wolf of wall street" was a party to depravity? It's like making a news story out of "Led Zeppelin sometimes had several groupies at once!" ......REALLY?
Wait....I'm going to have a heart attack and die from that surprise.
One thing should be clear to BOTH sides at this point. Trump is untouchable. Literally. There is NOTHING you could dig up on this guy that would stick, or would shock me in any way. He is The Godfather. It's that simple. You could uncover video of him diddling a child, and he would look square in the camera and say with conviction, "This is fake news, it never happened." And all it takes is for the hard core worshippers to sing his praises and repeat their reasons WHY they think he's right to create just a sliver of doubt in a decent cross section of the swayable public.....and viola.....we're on to the next controversy.
I was talking to a hard right winger at work. And I was just laughing at the irony that we went from being SHOCKED that someone we elected as president was outed as having "smoked but not inhaled" a joint during college, to OPENLY ELECTING a guy who we all know has done lines of blow off a hooker's patootie. My co worker was like, "He really did that?" I said, "Dude! THIS IS DONALD TRUMP!!" And he was like, "Oh yeah.....you're right...." He was serious. It had never occurred to him that this was a guy who practically invented the wolf of wall street stories!
I just wish everyone would stop trying to create a scandal around the guy. It's boring. With Trump, you already know you're getting the love child of Gene Simmons, Rupert Murdoch, and Gina Rinehart. So what is there you could dig up that we don't already know?
Was it Lincoln? who said the now famous, "You can fool some of the people all of the time, and you can fool all of the people some of the time. But you cannot fool all of the people all the time." This is still true, but the problem is that when he said that, he could not have envisioned a world where it was no longer necessary to fool all of the people all of the time. In the age of of the internet, fooling some of the people all of the time will suffice. If you can get away with fooling some of the people all of the time, you can do *ANYTHING*. And he has. And he will continue to do so.
You cannot touch Trump now. Not possible. He can do absolutely anything at all, and he will not be held accountable.
