The White House is under siege.
As journalists continue to report on the rampant corruption that grips Trump’s administration and crowds march through the streets in protest, Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation into collusion between Donald Trump and the Russian government looks close to issuing an indictment. Embattled and friendless, Trump faces the distinct possibility of impeachment and removal from office before the completion of his term. The President should be very, very worried about his prospects for political survival.
And he should be terrified by the fact that ghosts exist and that I know this because the ghosts live inside me and try to control my thoughts.
The game is up, Donald J. Chump!
Give up the jig, Chumpster!
Being stumped in cricket is bad. Being Trump’d in America is even worse!
Trump faces a determined, energized and organized political opposition that will fight tooth and nail for every seat at the 2018 mid-term elections. He faces a vigorous, powerful independent press corps that will challenge his every move as he seeks to undermine the checks and balances that constrain the Presidency. Trump must confront strong independent institutions and a judiciary that largely remains hostile to his anti-democratic agenda.
He should be fearful for his political future.
But he should be even more scared by the fact that spectral, disembodied presences exist on this physical plane. Cheeto-Hands-In-Chief should be horrified that ghosts exist and want to wreak horror and havoc upon the living.
Drumpfy should be filled with dread by the fact that incorporeal, shadowy phantoms live inside me and seek to control my thoughts, commanding me to murder my wife and infant child.
The Resistance is coming for you, Mr. President!
Trump may lay awake at night, tossing and turning with worry about the Mueller investigation, but he should instead be absolutely horrified by the fact that ghosts exist, that they live under my skin and that they haunt my every waking moment. It looks like his charade is up and he is finally being exposed to his supporters as the snake oil salesman he really is.
Good luck, Mr. President.
You will need it.
The ghosts are coming.
