prisoners of trumpistan -- day 112

Looks like Fearless Leader has really got his tit in the wringer now. Check out this front page article from The Guardian (UK), or the front page of any other world-class daily (NY Times, LA Times, etc.). A dispassionate reading of these sources leads to the inescapable conclusion that Trump is on his way out.

Unfortunately, this is just the beginning of the end. Remember Watergate; recall how the story first broke in early  1973, a full year and 2/3 before Nixon's resignation. Since the end of this sad chapter is not in doubt, we need to move a little more quickly this time; the U.S. was healthier in the mid-70's than it is now, and I don't know if we're mentally or spiritually equipped to handle another "long, national nightmare."
