No longer leader of the free world

I forget the name of the fatuous attorney on “Ally McBeal” who, whenever office conflict arose or people were absolutely furious about something, would pat the air and say over and over, “Bygones, people! Bygones!”, refusing to allow any discussion or expression of feeling or discussion of consequences. It’s clear, however, that that’s all Team Trump’s been doing since their hero, we’re told, made the briefest, most apologetic, hate-to-raise-the-subject mention of Russian meddling in our election in his meeting with Putin, instantly accepting Vladi’s claim of innocence and getting back to the job of impugning our own intelligence agencies on Twitter.

Meanwhile, the Times reports that Donald Trump, Jr., was offered damaging information about Hillary Clinton as part of an invitation to a June 2016 meeting with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer, which he, Jared Kushner, and campaign chairman Paul Manafort immediately accepted. Stand by your puppet, Trump fans.
