From ABC News' chief political consultant today:
I compared Trump's press conference to Captain Queeg. Here is a clip if you don't know. https://t.co/dv5wk9zFsT— Matthew Dowd (@matthewjdowd) February 16, 2017
@matthewjdowd Yes! I referenced Capt Queeg in one of my tweets a couple of weeks ago. The similarlies are eerie...— Tom (@tom_mckay) February 17, 2017
From your humble scrivener, 1,000 years ago in October:
They Were All Against Me
They fought me at every turn.Ah, but the birth certificate, that's, that's where I had them!They laughed at me and made jokes, but I proved beyond the shadow of a doubt, with geometric logic, that Barack Obama was a Kenyan Commie Sleeper Cell Usurper, and I'd have produced that evidence if they hadn't all conspired against me.I, I know now the Liberal media was only trying to protect their traitorous RINO friends...Today was the day when the Republican party's nominee for president declared open war on the leadership of the Republican party for finally daring to timidly whisper about various, glaringly observable realities (h/t @Billmon).
So they've got that going for them...
Disloyal R's are far more difficult than Crooked Hillary. They come at you from all sides. They don’t know how to win - I will teach them!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 11, 2016
The very foul mouthed Sen. John McCain begged for my support during his primary (I gave, he won), then dropped me over locker room remarks!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 11, 2016
It is so nice that the shackles have been taken off me and I can now fight for America the way I want to.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 11, 2016
Despite winning the second debate in a landslide (every poll), it is hard to do well when Paul Ryan and others give zero support!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 11, 2016
Our very weak and ineffective leader, Paul Ryan, had a bad conference call where his members went wild at his disloyalty.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 11, 2016
I though about titling this post "Captain Queef", but of course that would have been wrong.
So very, very wrong.
