Pres­i­dent Trump likes to par­don tur­keys. Each day he rou­tinely par­dons him­self!

Trump says there is “no rea­son” for him to lis­ten to the tape record­ing of Khashoggi’s mur­der. Of course not. It might dis­turb his con­science as he goes about his reg­u­lar busi­ness of pro­tect­ing the Saudi crown prince, Jared’s BFF, who the CIA says or­dered the hit. Wait a minute.

What con­science?

I’m try­ing to think of a worse job in the U.S. gov­ern­ment cur­rently than Se­cret Ser­vice se­cu­rity de­tail for any­one in the Trump clan. I’m draw­ing a blank. Those peo­ple are the ab­so­lute worst. Can you imag­ine join­ing the Se­cret Ser­vice and think­ing you’ll have a pres­ti­gious job pro­tect­ing the best and bright­est in Amer­ica, only to be sad­dled with babysit­ting Eric Trump? That’s gotta suck.

Most of the Quickly posts are long enough to be ed­i­to­ri­als or let­ters to the ed­i­tor.

The CIA has con­cluded that the Saudi crown prince or­dered the as­sas­si­na­tion of re­porter (Ja­mal) Khashoggi. Pres­i­dent Trump says that the crown prince told him he had noth­ing to do with it. Who do you think he be­lieves? Not the CIA.

Ac­cord­ing to the pub­lic ser­vant in Quickly, half the coun­try is a syco­phan­tic apol­o­gist for the, let’s just call him the pres­i­dent in­stead of a bunch of kid­die names like the lit­tle boy likes to do. That must make the pub­lic ser­vant some­body re­ally spe­cial, or a gut­less coward who hides be­hind a silly lit­tle col­umn where he can vent his frus­tra­tions with no re­stric­tions. What a man!

I don’t blame Trump vot­ers for want­ing to shut down all Quickly crit­i­cism of Trump. If I had voted for this guy, I wouldn’t want to be re­minded all the time ei­ther of what a re­ally dumb thing I had done.

I don’t get time at my job to take polls about who voted for what party. I work for the union that doesn’t care who you vote for as long as you are united. When is the last time you heard Trump say all of the cit­i­zens at one of his Mu­nich-style ral­lies?

Your poll at lunch is fake news. Eight mil­lion more na­tion­wide voted for Democrats. They won the House and now con­trol more state­house seats.

Read a news­pa­per dur­ing lunch and turn off Fox at home. Ed­u­cate your­self and then you will able to post facts to Quickly.

Trump acts like he is a tough guy, but he is a frag­ile lit­tle man run­ning out of places to hide.

Guns don’t kill peo­ple. Peo­ple kill peo­ple. We want manda­tory safety cour­ses for peo­ple, not guns. We want more thor­ough back­ground checks of peo­ple, not guns. We want stricter neg­li­gence penal­ties im­posed on peo­ple, not guns. It you’re stupid enough to think ac­tivists are mad abut guns, you’re too stupid to own one.

There is a say­ing about the un­for­tu­nate who in­ter­nally har­bor the cor­rod­ing en­ergy of guilt. They sup­port ex­trem­ist cap­i­tal­ism over hu­man­ity and over hu­man rights. Bul­lies are truly weak peo­ple so they lash out in ex­pli­ca­ble heinous ways to try to in­su­late them­selves. It rarely works.
