The president of the United States has made use of the expression so many times, it is now official the expression has been used today more frequently than during the Salem Witch trials in the 1690s in Massachusetts. Is the president trying to say something no one gets?
Does he suffer of delusion? Is he able to see witches no one else can? Is he paranoid? Or is it an effective strategy to “cast away” witches? Whatever it is, it has become contagious. Members of the Republican Legislative Branch have been caught with the “witch hunt” flu. Privately, publicly and even in Congressional hearing, a few GOP Legislators have begun to suggest that the Special Counsel’s investigation into the Russia meddling in the 2016 presidential election is – you might have already guessed it – a “witch hunt”.
Very meticulous observations of the president’s approach to dealing with any matter which could impact his life (i.e. bruise his ego) help to place his “dealing with witches” in two very distinct categories:
Although the discussion of those two categories will be addressed in part two of the Witch Hunt series, it’s worth mentioning now that the Special Counsel who is tasked to investigate the Russian interference in the 2016 presidential elections has come across quite a few witches, by sheer accident perhaps.
On Tuesday, August 21, 2018, without being hunted by anyone, a witch, Michael Cohen, turned himself in as a witch who’s been operating under the radar, in the dark alleys of New York City. He’s been able to keep his “witchery” hidden, secret because he got rid of the broom a longtime ago. According to Cohen, his longtime broom companion, Donald Trump, is also a witch; Mr. Cohen blew the whistle about other witches still roaming the streets.
This new revelation, by a bona fide witch, could provide enough fuel to restart the Witch Hunt.
Not so fast!
Many witch lovers cheered last night, Tuesday August 21, 2018 at a rally in West Virginia when the Witch-in-Chief clamored:
Where is the collusion? Where is the collusion? I don’t see any collusion.
Stay tuned as we continue the hunt for more witches!
