“Declaring a front-runner at this point is like picking aplastic surgeon based on two Yelp reviews,” says Jimmy Kimmel, who also notesthat Andrew Yang, Deval Patrick, and Michael Bennet have all dropped out of theDemocratic presidential primaries. Even with Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigiegvying for the lead and Amy Klobuchar close behind, however, Trump remains focusedon high-rolling former New York Mike Bloomberg.
What really preoccupies the president at the moment isrevenge – on prosecutors who convicted his friend Roger Stone (who might have squealedabout him), and on the National Security Council aide who testified in Congress.Having fired Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman (and his brother), Trump went on tosuggest that the military should prosecute the decorated war veteran for…something.Since impeachment his abuses of power have not abated, as Republican Senators saidthey hoped, but intensified.
“Why do I get the feeling we’re going to have to impeachthis guy at least two more times before the election?” muses Kimmel. “He’sgoing for a three-peach! It has never been done.” As Trump would say – and hassaid over and over and over and over again – it’s a disgrace.
