I woke up this morning thinking of squirting clown lapel flowers, and 'why, am I coming apart?' jokes, turned on the T. V. and immediately sobered up (yes, I'd had several intoxicating adult beverages as I slept--of course, now that I think about it, I MAY have been dreaming!), because of an MSNBC story about Dump hinting he may release 'tapes' of his secretly recorded conversation with then-FBI Director James Comey, tapes which I believe believe exist only in The Dumper's fevered imagination.


My first thought was that the intoxicating beverages hadn't been a dream, and that I was beyond reality, because surely (I won't say it!), no American President would be so stupid to publicly threaten anyone with a secretly-taped recording, in effect, threatening Comey to keep his mouth shut, OR, Francis Ford Coppola was planning a new 'Godfather ' movie, starring the president. As I couldn't be sure I was sober, I decided to go with the new 'Godfather' premise. It should be unbelievable--well, admittedly, not as unbelievable as the reality we're watching unfold in the reign of Dumpovius The Only, but still, close!
