Those aren’t the words we were looking for

There are literally thousands of words to describe Donald Trump. Perhaps millions. I can’t possibly list them all. That would take a whole novel (or two or three) but if you want to know what these adjectives are, one can always google: “words to describe the Devil.” I think that might cover it.

So yes, there are so many words out there, just waiting to be picked. But I very much doubt (and think you will agree) “ethical” is one of those words. And yet that is just what one of Trump’s attorneys is calling him. Alina Habba, appearing on Fox, attempted to paint her client as a virtuous and kindly man.

“He’s cooperated,” she insisted regarding Trump returning the classified documents. On and on she went, waxing poetic about her client. And finally, she capped off her word salad with this masterpiece: “Let’s just use common sense,” she said. “He (Trump) would never act like that. HE IS THE MOST ETHICAL AMERICAN I KNOW.”

Calling Pinocchio: we are in desperate need of your services. Most ETHICAL AMERICAN SHE KNOWS? She must not know too many people, then.

This would be like saying Lindsey Graham is the most courageous man ever. Or that Samuel Alito held women in high regard, especially witches. Or that Marjorie Taylor Greene had a brain. It’s just pure fiction.

Could Trump have told her to use those words? They do sound like they come from him, no? I have news for this attorney. Trying to turn your client into a saint will not work. This is because your client is a demonic, orange bag of wind, a lying liar, a traitor, and an insurrectionist. He is not kind. He likely does not help little old ladies cross the street. He has no morality at all.
