Good News from the Resistance: Congratulations, Resisters! You made it through Year 1 of our Dystopian Nightmare. As 45 tried to dismantle our democracy, we woke up, signed up, showed up, and did not give up. Over the weekend, hundreds of thousands of marchers turned up in cities across the U.S. and throughout the world, to insist, resist and persist. Last year’s Women’s March organizers kicked off Power to the Polls in Las Vegas, a drive to register 1 million new voters in time for the midterm elections.
On-going investigations into 45 and his Inner Circle continue, and much like a Whac-a-Mole, they keep popping up. Bannon’s expected to squawk before Mueller’s truth squad, which experts say now has razor-sharp focus on the trail to 45’s dirty Russian money. This week, Mueller’s investigators knocked on the door of the Italian girlfriend of 45’s former campaign aide, George singing-like-a-bird Papadopoulos, and the NRA (yes, that NRA) may have laundered money for the Russians in an effort to get 45 elected.
You know that feeling you get a few minutes before a party, when you fear that all your preparation will be for naught, because no one will show up? For 45, that fear became reality at last year’s Inauguration. After raising $107 million to fete thousands of friends and admirers with the most bigly, huuuge musical stars in the world, most didn’t show up. Which means there was a lot of leftover money. Where’d it go? 45 won’t say. It’s under investigation.
Speaking of tightly held secrets, 45’s dalliance with porn star Stormy Daniels has led to yet another investigation. No, it’s not about the sex – Stormy’s revealed that in horrifying detail. As is often the case with our Real-Estate-Developer-in-Chief, it’s about the cash. Looks like his lawyer set up a shell company to hide Stormy’s hush money. Now, dear Resisters, it’s time to flush from your brain that image of 45 chasing Stormy around the bed in his tighty whities, and read this week’s Good News:
