Quick, Get That Man Some Prevagen! Did You Know It Has an Ingredient found in Jellyfish?


Washington Post, Impeachment witness provides firsthand account of hearing Trump demand ‘investigation’ of Bidens by Ukraine:

President Trump specifically inquired about political investigations he wanted carried out by Ukraine during a July phone call with a top U.S. diplomat who then told colleagues that the president was most interested in a probe into former vice president Joe Biden and his son, a State Department aide said Friday in closed-door testimony that could significantly advance House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry.

David Holmes, an embassy staffer in Kyiv, testified that he overheard a July 26 phone call in which Trump pressed U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland about whether Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky would “do the investigation,” according to three people who have read his opening statement and spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe its contents.

“Ambassador Sondland replied that ‘he’s gonna to do it,’ adding that President Zelensky will do ‘anything you ask him to,’ ” Holmes said, according to these people.

Holmes’s testimony, first reported by CNN, directly implicates Trump in an alleged scheme at the heart of the impeachment probe, which Democrats have pursued in an attempt to prove that the president leveraged military assistance and an Oval Office meeting in exchange for investigations into Biden and a debunked theory concerning Ukrainian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Early Onset Alzheimer’s

Dementia is apparently not a strike against those seeking high diplomatic posts, provided they donate heavily to Trump and lack all scruples. It is, in fact, an advantage, in that it permits them to forget things they would rather forget.

For example, Ambassador Sondland—sadly, an early victim of Oldtimers’ disease—has forgotten about that conversation he had, when he was in a Kiev restaurant, rather late at night, gave The Donald a ringy-ding back in Washington, and put it on speaker phone.

If I had done that, I think I would remember. So sad.

Will you join me in sending him a supply of Prevagen—IT HAS AN INGREDIENT FOUND IN JELLYFISH!—in advance of his testimony on Wednesday of next week?

There will soon come a time when they won’t be able to remember that Trump was ever president.

But, all seriousness aside …

The talking heads have now spoken, and they have all pretty much decided that the overheard July 26 Sondland-Trump phone call—the one made from a restaurant in Kyiv (which used to be spelled Kiev), with Trump on a speaker phone saying he cared about investigating the Bidens and didn’t give a tinker’s damn about Ukraine—is the really big news of the day.

I can see it’s important, but it seems to me to be additional, cumulative evidence of what we already knew.

Dog bites man.

I still think the part of the story where the man bites the dog comes at the point where Rep. Blabbidy Blabbidy invents a fairy tale about Trump restoring the military aid because he has become convinced, after a few months, that Zelinsky is really a good guy after all.

But I haven’t seen anyone else raising the point.

I think maybe their bullshit detectors are so burned out that they can’t detect it when a new and highly creative piece of bullshit lands on their path.
