From Capitol Hill Blue
America today can best be described as a floundering, drowning whale.
Under the control of a debased, corrupt Donald Trump, the con man who claimed he would "make America great again," the once land of the free and home of the brave has become the toxic swamp of a madman, wannabe dictator who plunders and loots at will.
The mentally-challenged half-child who calls others "enemies of the people" should be talking about himself.
No president in the history of this once-great nation has lied so openly, so blatantly ignored both the norms and the legalities of his office or turned the White House into a mob-central with a sole purpose of serving his ego or the wallets of his family.
And he continues to plunder and pillage under the protection of a emasculated Republican party that controls the Senate and serves his impulses with no regard for the nation it is supposed to serve.
Trump is served by equally corrupt GOP leaders like "Moscow Mitch" McConnell in the Senate, Kevin McCarthy in the House and others like supportive traitor Lindsey Graham.
A few Republicans -- too damn few -- have seen the light.
Former Congressman Joe Walsh, now a long-shot primary candidate for the GOP nomination for Trump's job, calls Trump a traitor.
"I'm running against President Trump because he's unfit and a clear and present danger to this country," Walsh says. "There's no way in hell I would vote for him in November. The election is about Trump, period."
Sadly, Walsh was not much a Congressman, just like Anthony Scaramucci wasn't much of a White House Communications Director during his brief time on the job, but even he now considers Trump a traitor.
"The American president is a traitor to the United States. He is literally the most un-American president that we've had, probably since Andrew Johnson," Scaramucci said on CNN.
"I would have thought that the leadership in the Congress would have broken by now, the Republican leadership in the Congress. Where is the leadership?"
Where indeed. Former presidential candidate Mitt Romney, now Utah's Senator, supports the impeachment inquiry, but has not said if he supports impeachment itself. This is enough for Trump to attack Romney.
