How I hope I’m alive on the day

“The tactics that have always served him will not work here. You can fool some of the people all of the time and you can fool all of the people some of the time. But good luck fooling the feds any of the time.

 

Heaven only knows where this will end up. Maybe the campaign will be exonerated. Maybe we will discover the Russian meddling was plotted by Trump and Vladimir Putin over drinks in a hot tub at Mar-a-Lago.

 
Either way, there is something to be said for the simple fact that the investigation is underway, that Trump and his team will finally be forced to answer serious questions from serious people who will not be impressed by alternative facts and brazen deflections. It’s the kind of knowledge that renews your faith in the system. And in karma.”

How I hope I’m alive on the day
that his carcass is carted away
to the furthermost reaches
of his scurrilous breaches
where Karma’s demanding her pay
