Here's an interesting tweet
. While at National Airport, the fellow who tweeted that particular tweet ran into -- and photographed -- John Bolton.
He pulled out two phones and proceeded to loudly talk about how they all needed to be on the same page,Jay and he and Rudy. He didn’t even try to talk quietly
As often happens, the responses to this tweet discuss everything but the most important question: Why would John Bolton need to be "on the same page" as Trump's lawyers
? Why would the National Security Adviser be linked up with the effort to protect Trump from the Mueller and Cohen probes?
The more I try to puzzle out that poser, the less I like it.
My red face:
As a reader just pointed out, the mustachioed personage in question is obviously Ty Cobb, not Bolton. I glanced at the pic, saw a grey mustache, and -- without looking twice -- made a giant leap to a foolish conclusion.
(Y'see, whenever I think of Cobb, my mind flashes to this widely-reproduced image
, in which he sports a beard. He should go back to that look. The Bolton 'stache is much more mundane than the Cobb handlebar, so I really have no excuse for the confusion.)
My first instinct was to delete this post. But, having recently castigated Alex Jones for his refusal to apologize for anything, I feel obligated to wear my egg facial out in public for all to see. I bow humbly to the audience and beg forgiveness.
Liberals can do that. We are not haunted by the fear that an apology shrinks penis size.
That said, we've heard many times that Cobb is the White House lawyer, not Trump's personal attorney. Cobb is supposed to protect the institution, not the man. So the "same page" remark is still irksome.
