Dickhead still hasn't gotten it through his thick skull that he's president, not king, and he's not allowed to just spew any random thought that comes into his empty head.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Facing a Monday deadline, the Justice Department asked lawmakers for more time to provide evidence backing up President Donald Trump's unproven assertion that his predecessor wiretapped his New York skyscraper during the election. The request came as the White House appeared to soften Trump's explosive allegation.
While I can't put an actual cost on his bullshit I can do a rough estimate. Based on his desperate bid to redirect attention away from his Russian connection, tRump made up what he *thought* would be just another fabrication, just like all the ones he spewed during the election. But then the government, paid by the taxpayers, had to deal with the consequences: the Justice Department; let's say generously, 20 people for 80 hours (two weeks) at $50 an hour which equals $80k and that's JUST the Justice Department. Now lets add congress for just one day: $16 million (reference: scroll down to the answer) and we'll ignore the press and anyone else peripherally involved in communicating the fallout from this specific prevarication.
So yeah, a few million. Just to humor a crazed, egomaniac. But that's not all...
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway sidestepped questions about the lack of proof Monday, saying she was "not in the job of having evidence."[..] "What I can say is there are many ways to surveil each other now, unfortunately," including "microwaves that turn into cameras, et cetera," Conway said. "So we know that that is just a fact of modern life."
Dumb Twat Conway then opened a HUGE can of worms by saying that the government has "many ways to surveil" it's citizens, meaning that the US Government, also her employer, is constantly violating the public's rights every moment of every day which is "just a fact of modern life". No bitch, no, it's NOT just a fact of modern life, you need a court ORDER to wire tap, an order which, if it actually existed, tRump could declassify and wave in everyone's faces.
Which he can't.
So what we have here is a stinking mess. An asshole who just says whatever he feels like, an administration that's afraid to correct him, and more than half of congress doing whatever it can to go along with the crazy.
Yep, just another day in tRump-merica, just another day in hell.
