We have a new musical episode of Witch Hunt for our avid fans. You’ll love the chorus of toadies singing the show’s theme which has been a YUGE hit!
NumptyVision viewers will recall back in May when today’s special musical guest, Newt Gingrich, tweeted his support for Robert Mueller as the choice for special council for the Russian “hacking” investigation.*
Robert Mueller is superb choice to be special counsel. His reputation is impeccable for honesty and integrity. Media should now calm down
— Newt Gingrich (@newtgingrich) May 18, 2017
Here lately, though, Gingrich has been screeching a different tune. During his appearance on the 12 June edition of Loose Lips he suggested that Mueller wouldn’t be fair and that 45 should fire Mueller as special counsel. Since that time, it appears that White House Numpties unknown have convinced 45 that firing Mueller would be unwise and would add fuel to the already smoldering Obstruction of Justice fire.
With the announcement yesterday that 45 is indeed under investigation, the toadies are out in force decrying “witch hunt” and “deep state” in unison with otherwise disjointed lyrics and rambling melody. Seriously, it’s worth your time to track down these tweets to read the comments that accompany them. They are comedy gold! (see that, advertisers? gold!)
Now that the investigation has lead Mueller in a direction the toadies don’t like they’re singing their nonsense loudly though not very clearly, rambling like Sessions at a Senate intelligence committee hearing. Lordy.
Wet blanket, Senator John Thune (Republican from SD, who is clearly a music-hater and closet librul and “deep state” whatever the fuck that is) defended Mueller’s investigation on Thursday and disputed 45’s claim that he was the subject of an investigatory “witch hunt.”
Meanwhile, on Fuck You, I Got Mine, Senate republicans continue to plot the demise of millions of Americans in a secret lair located somewhere near Washington D.C. All we know, so far, is that their evil plan includes using a tax bill (AHCA) to replace a health care law (ACA) so that Americans can no longer qualify for health insurance (because of age, preexisting conditions, or just plain high costs). We also know that they’re in a huge hurry to kill us though we do not know what the rush is. Perhaps, they intend to expand their empire and need us out of the way? Perhaps they need our souls since they clearly sold theirs (and those of their mothers) long ago? Perhaps our corpses will be fuel for a new Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator so they can destroy the moon to harvest its minerals?
Stay tuned to the Republican’s Incompetence Parade channel for your favorite soaps.
*We at the Republican’s Incompetence Parade channel (aka NumptyVision) know it wasn’t “hacking,” but this is TV, right? “Russian hacking” gets better ratings than “Investigation into Russian election interference and possible collusion by Americans.” Facts and accuracy just aren’t as fun. Ask any member of the Party of Violence and Hatetm; they’ll tell you.
