Mirror, Mirror On The Wall Who's The Trumpiest GOP Imbecile Of Them All? On Staten Island


Now where, oh where, could Grimm have ever gotten the idea to tar Donovan?

You expect crazy shit coming out of Staten Island-- but not crazy shit the effects anyplace else. Staten Island is its own world-- we leave them alone; they leave us alone. At least that’s the way it’s always been. However… as we said a few days ago, the relatively sane mainstream Republican congressman, Dan Donovan, a law and order guy, is in a fight to the death GOP primary with Mafia thug and former congressman and recently-released prison inmate, Michael “Mikey Suits” Grimm. As we said Wednesday, Donovan was exposed for fixing a heroin bust for the son of his… his… girlfriend’s son. Donovan’s defense? He didn’t do squat and Mikey Suits was behind the ethics complaint claiming that Donovan intervened in the arrest of Timothy O’Connell, the son of Donovan’s domestic partner, Serena Stonick.
“All these charges are false,” Donovan said. “I was never involved in the arrest stage. I wasn’t involved in whatever happened at the precinct. I never went to the precinct. I never called anyone. I was never involved in whatever decision the police department made on whatever charges they were going to charge him with. I was never involved in the whether or not he was going to receive a DAT. I was never involved in any of his court proceedings.”

Donovan said he wants OCE to move as quickly as possible on the case, and he called on the ethics watchdog to release those findings when its probe is complete.

In a statement, Grimm didn’t directly address whether he was behind the ethics complaint against Donovan.

However, Grimm called on Donovan, his aides and Stonick to release their cell phone records to determine if there was any contact with O’Connell or anyone else the day of the arrest.

“Dan Donovan’s desperate blame game and politicization of this scandal helps no one-- not his campaign, not his loved ones, not the thousands in our community suffering from the opioid epidemic that blossomed under his watch,” Grimm said. “I have no comment on this story other than to question how a felony distribution case magically turned into a misdemeanor, as O’Connell’s own lawyer admitted to the New York Post.

Grimm is trying to make an unprecedented comeback to Congress. He served seven months in federal prison after pleading guilty in 2014 to tax evasion. The former FBI agent wants to reclaim his old Staten Island seat by ousting Donovan.

In an increasingly ugly battle, both men have tried to portray themselves as the true Trumpian candidate in the race, although President Donald Trump himself has stayed out of it so far.

House GOP leaders, including Speaker Paul Ryan, badly want Donovan to win and have endorsed the ex-prosecutor and held fundraisers to buttress his campaign war chest.
And believe me, this gets even crazier-- and intrudes into all our lives. To prove that he’s the biggest Trumpist in the fight, Donovan rushed to introduce a bill that would mandate a picture of Señor Trumpanzee and his homophobic partner Pence, side by side, in every post office-- not just the ones in Staten Island And the Russian part of Brooklyn, but in post offices all over America. Donovan claims that a constituent complained to him that a local post office put up photos of Obama and Biden, but didn’t display photos of Señor T and Pence. Like this;

I'll bet that the post offices and all official governmental building in North Korea have portraits of their Dear Leader. Why doesn't the US of A? In fact, why don't we gild all of the portals into our governmental buildings and stamp "TRVMP" into the lintels as was done in Imperial Rome? No historical Caesar can match the military might our tyro-in-Chief can unleash upon the world. Why should the Caesars get more prominent promotion than our DEER(-in-the-headlights) Leedur?
