Trump the 'killer klown'

The latest Trump contretemps involves the book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," by Michael Wolff. It is laughable how Trump accuses Wolff of lying. It was Trump himself who gave Wolff White House access so he could write his book, further proof of his poor judgment of character, since it was he, himself, who chose to trust Wolff in the first place.
President Trump reminds me of the sci-fi movie, "Killer Klowns from Outer Space." At first the klowns were amusing but they quickly turned lethal without provocation. Those of us who pay attention to history know this killer klown’s time is limited. It’s almost laughable to watch his inner circle scramble for traction inside the White House like rats seeking solid ground during a flood. Maybe they’re victims of swamp draining.
Why is it this president can’t seem to get along with anyone but himself? Again and again his disputes and outrageous lies create headlines. Now he has folded the Voter Fraud Commission, blaming the Blue States for non-compliance. Ha ha. What about the Red State non-compliance? And the original reason for the commission was to prove that voter fraud caused Clinton to receive more popular votes than he did. The truth is that the committee could find very little evidence of voter fraud, proving that Clinton received more of the popular vote than the klown. Any state serious about voter fraud should have mail-in ballots like Oregon does. Anything else is lip service.
And what happened to Trump’s accusations about Obama wire-tapping him? More lies. And what about the Republican Congress knowingly supporting this pitiless klown, thus risking the well being of American citizens and Democracy?
The wheels of justice grind slowly, but be assured the killer klown car will crash and burn. Even now one of the revolving shotgun passenger klowns could be blowing the whistle to Mueller.
