Ask A Genius 474 – The King’s Ball(s), and All Out Celebration (2)

December 15, 2018

[Beginning of recorded material]

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: How is this going to be perceived?

Rick Rosner: There is the investigation that will start shortly into one of Trump’s country clubs. Abuse of mostly undocumented labor and these laborers have been abused.

So, all this stuff is going to come out about Trump. Reasonable people think this will be revealed when the Democrats take over the house and have the power to subpoena tax records and everything else.

And when Mueller gets closer to the end of his investigation, it will show that Trump has had a criminal career spanning 40 years or more. But Republicans and evangelicals are saying well as long as the country is in good shape.

None of this stuff matters. It is all inconsequential stuff that nobody got killed. It is in. It is violating campaign finance laws and paying off mistresses and all this is okay. It wouldn’t have been OK. I get most of my information from Twitter. Everybody is saying, “Well, this is rank hypocrisy.”

That had Democrats did any of this stuff. It would be different. The Republicans were going crazy. In fact, they did go crazy over stuff that was much more minor when it was done by Democrats. Some angry liberals think Springsteen, possibly Michael Moore, are saying that Trump may well get re-elected, even as all the stuff he’s done as a fraud is revealed.
