Trump Derangement Syndrome is real – Former journalist Jake Tapper and former ODNI James Clapper conduct a broadcast couples therapy discussion on the impact of Washington DC’s swamp draining.
Their collective grief session included a discussion of how President Trump was resetting the system of checks-and-balances by firing political appointees of the prior executive administration. You have to watch the segment to fully grasp the level of stupid.
Sad faces abound as they console each other that a new administration actually removed the political appointees of the prior administration. This action, according to their logic, is akin to the removal of one of the three branches of co-equal government; though they never actually do get around to explaining how the Legislative branch, or Judicial Branch have been removed by the Executive branch. Funny that.
You cannot make this level of moonbattery up. Virtuous defender of the republic Jake Tapper actually said: “because he’s firing the checks and balances“. Don’t believe me, watch:
I’m assuming the CNN audience was never exposed to grade-school civics, and probably don’t comprehend the FBI Director and Attorney General are appointed by the President and serve at the whim of the elected President, who IS The Executive Branch.
Despite what former ODNI James Clapper says, I promise you the FBI and DOJ are not “co-equal branches of government”.
