The Ego Maniac in the Oval Is ‘Exonerated’
The New York Slimes ^ | April 20, 2019 | Maureen Dowd

Posted on 04/21/2019 8:00:17 AM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum

WASHINGTON — When it comes to presidential obstruction, at least Watergate started with a crime. A stupid crime, but a crime.

After 675 days, more than 2,800 subpoenas, nearly 500 search warrants, $30 million spent, endless jaw-jaw on cable and countless whiny Trump tweets, we have come down to one fundamental truth.

And it’s the same truth that has been terrorizing us all along: Donald Trump’s dirtbag machinations are driven by insane vanity.

The First Narcissist’s all-consuming blend of braggadocio and insecurity has turned Washington and its rickety institutions into a dystopian outpost of his id.

President Trump obstructed on nearly every page of Volume II of the Mueller report, even though Robert Mueller was too lost in legalese to throw the book at him. The report counts as the Worst Exoneration Ever, replete with incrimination.

And Trump’s motivation for trying to subvert justice and turn the White House into a writhing nest of liars? His ego.

He did not want people to think that the Russians were responsible for his election and that he was an illegitimate president.

And why was this the burr under his sociopathic saddle? Obviously, because he thinks he is an illegitimate president. He never expected to win.

The idea that he is in the Oval Office under false pretenses plays into his twisted sense of victimhood. The spoiled scion of Fifth Avenue somehow always finds a way to be aggrieved, a victim of the media, the deep state, “dirty cops,” note-taking aides and the elites — all out to get him.

It’s the same reason he is still talking at rallies about that “beautiful map” of his Electoral College victory, with its large swaths of red. And the same reason he focuses on ratings and crowd sizes and subscription numbers...

To the frigid frumps, ex-hippie, dykes of the decrepit women’s movement, every man is an ego maniac.

Imagine that Mo, the Russians weren’t responsible for his election and he was a legitimate President but don’t let
that stop you from pushing the smear.

“President Trump obstructed on nearly every page of Volume II of the Mueller report”

Volume II was based on rumors and innuendos and was only published to give the Demoncrats ammo to continue their obstruction.

Duh! Like that’s not true?

I just hear a Pulitzer winning journalist on NPR say that reporters don’t take sides.

Only reject Maureen dowd could write such drivel. Since she’s too biytchy for most men, she’s angry at all alpha males, especially Trump.

Dowd is re-demonstrating what a nasty woman she is.

Thank you. I can look at it for a time and wash out my mind.

Thanks for that! Glad some here remember to always post a photo.

Sadly, what ratbag Dowd doesn’t understand is that she is one of the major contributors to Washington dystopia. She needs to look in the mirror.

She sure knows how to pile it on.
Does she really believe that large quantities of outrageous slander will suddenly become valid?

Chill out, Mo.

Only a few weeks 'til Fleet Week in NYC. Maybe...MAYBE - with 10,000 young sailors there you might get some action.

These people can’t even fake sanity any more. The syntax of this rant reeks of unhinged hysteria.

Dowd is clearly loosing her mind.
This reads like she was googling every possible word that that said “corruption” and then slamming them into a long, poorly researched sentence.

Probably has to do with her great skill at dating powerful men.

Maureen Dowd has really outdone herself this time! She now has the 'Pretend Journalist Insults Trump' world record. This value is calculated by:

total number of insults in the article / total number of words

Please stop by to collect your trophy, Maureen.
