Ask A Genius 439 – Waiting for the Shoes (and the Beat) to Drop (1)

November 10, 2018

[Beginning of recorded material]

Rick Rosner: Right now, we are in this weird semi-limbo in America. Where the ball has been tossed into the air and is at the top of its arc, it is not moving up or down. It is just a moment.

It is at zero upward or downward velocity. The Democrats have taken back the House but won’t take it back for a bit. In the lame duck session, there are efforts to strip the incumbent Democratic governors and legislatures of power.

They are working to fuck over Democrats while they still hold power. That is frustrating because the national Congress has attempted to do a couple things. It will be a couple days until the dissolution of the Congress.

They are working on James Comey testifying. They are going to try and see if they can gin up any further information on Hillary Clinton. It is one last gasp. So much bad stuff and so much bad behavior come out of the Trump White House every day, it seems super unlikely that he will survive to run for president in 2020.

He may make it. He may not be kicked out of office. He may not quit. He may survive the next two years and the president. That he will have to fall at some point. We are still waiting for all the shoes to drop.
