For quite some time now, Palmer Report has been pointing out that no matter things end up going down, the only given is that Donald Trump will end up in prison once it’s all over. Now Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is also talking about Trump going to prison – and let’s just say that it has him more than a bit rattled.
For reference, here’s what Trump vomited out on Twitter just now: “Nervous Nancy Pelosi is a disgrace to herself and her family for having made such a disgusting statement, especially since I was with foreign leaders overseas. There is no evidence for such a thing to have been said. Nervous Nancy & Dems are getting Zero work done in Congress and have no intention of doing anything other going on a fishing expedition to see if they can find anything on me – both illegal & unprecedented in U.S. history. There was no Collusion – Investigate the Investigators! Go to work on Drug Price Reductions & Infrastructure!”
Okay, where do we start? “Nervous Nancy” is an extraordinarily uninspired nickname. No idea why Trump is dragging Pelosi’s family into this, as he certainly can’t name a single member of her family. There’s plenty of “evidence for such a thing to have been said,” considering that the Mueller report exposes that Trump committed eleven felonies, and SDNY court filings accuse Trump of two additional felonies. House Democrats have passed plenty of legislation; it’s then been blocked by Trump’s Senate ally Mitch McConnell. It’s not “illegal” for Congress to investigate the president; it’s literally the job of Congress. And for the record, Trump recently said he refuses to work on an infrastructure bill because of his scandals.
So yeah, Donald Trump is full of crap as usual – no surprise there. But what stands out is just how far over the edge he’s going in response to Nancy Pelosi having said that he’s going to prison. Of course he’s going to prison when this is all over; if the feds don’t manage to get him, New York State certainly will. What stands out here is that Trump seems to know he’s going to prison in the end, or he couldn’t be cracking up like this about it.
