You sir, are no Kennedy.

Another week, another disastrous 7 days in Trumpworld.

Which brings us to letter #18 in our Thursday Thrashing series.

It's a Kennedy.

But not the good kind.



Senator John Kennedy
SR 383 Russell Senator Building
Washington, DC 20510
Dear Senator Kennedy,

You are an enigma. 

An enigma wrapped in a riddle and stuffed inside a Louisiana crawfish.  

You have the Kennedy name, synonymous with the New England Dynasty of Democrats. And yet you identify yourself as a Republican and stand shoulder to shoulder with 51 other spineless creatures in the US Senate -- all of whom are receiving a personally hand written letter from yours truly. 

In light of your feckless nature and all too common wishy-washiness, you sir are Letter #18.

Most puzzling, are your momentary glimpses of sanity.

When asked about the President's proposed military parade, you poo-pooed the idea, adding, "confidence is silent and insecurity is loud."

When the scuffle arose about the President using the term shithole countries you paused and said, "this is childish behavior. This is why aliens wont talk to us."

And none of us will forget -- thanks to the Internet and the viral video -- your grilling of a Precedent Shitgibbon nominee, Matthew Spencer Petersen, for a federal judgeship.

In that legendary 4:48 interview it became painfully obvious that Mr. Petersen lacked the credentials for a lifetime appointment to the federal bench. In fact, he lacked the credentials and wherewithal to argue a traffic ticket in a municipal courthouse.

I suspect that had Jimmy Kimmel taken his cameras out on Hollywood Blvd and conducted one of those embarrassing interviews where passersby cannot even identify the combatants of World War II, you would still find a majority of people who better meet the criteria for that judicial position.

He was that fucking bad. And you brought it to light. Thank you.

You would think that if the president, who regularly boasts of hiring the best people, nominates someone like Matthew Petersen it would raise a red flag.

That was no minor miscalculation.

Did it not send a message to you?

Did it not make you wonder about the Precedent Shitgibbon's judgment?

Or his understanding of the gravitas of the position?

Now compound that with this week's obvious lying about the letter he dictated in response to Don Jr.'s meeting with Russian Intelligence officers.

Pile on the incomprehensible ramblings of the president's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who speculated (out loud) about the possibility of assassinating former FBI Director James Comey.  Let's not forget the time candidate Trump fantasized about shooting a New Yorker on 5th Ave.

As if all that weren't enough, yesterday we had the president suggesting he could pardon himself, thereby placing himself squarely above the law.

I would think even paint chip eating Matthew Petersen knows that's a ridiculous legal contention.

Which brings us to the biggest mystery of all Senator Kennedy, why are you standing with this dim, frothy huggermugger of a president and more importantly, why haven't you called for his impeachment?
