Send the clowns? Don’t worry, they are here

Some of the people who appeared and stood out in this parade of “Trump wanted,” as Nichols calls them, became famous names in their own right, not because of the power of their noble deeds, but because of the depth of their betrayal and pure arrogance. Nichols mentions two such characters: Jeffrey Clark and John Eastman, two people whose names would never have been known to the general public had it not been for their bold attempts to change the very nature of this sacred republic.

Nichols first stabs Clark, a rather gentle and obscure environmental lawyer in every way, sent to the Department of Justice, who apparently believes that hooking up with his star in the Trump campaign is his ticket to greatness:

Consider, for example, Jeffrey Bossert Clark, an insignificant Justice Department official who tried to overthrow his own boss and make Trump his attorney general, after which Clark will try to overturn the election results. (Clark denied attempting expulsion.) “History is calling,” Clark told Trumpwith what must have been his most serious adviser.

The reality was that Clark was simply the most flexible tool recommended to Trump, an obviously ambitious and immoral enough to submit to any absurd scheme that entered the treacherous mind of the Dear Leader. But here he is, discovering that he is playing the Language of Worms and whispering sweet banal words in the willing ears of his king. But, as Nichols notes, Clark’s flirtation with the ring of power was unfortunately short-lived:

Clark received his salary in meeting in the Oval Office when Acting Deputy Attorney General Richard Donohue warned Trump that any such appointment would lead to mass resignations, he told Clark, “You are an environmental lawyer. How about you go back to your office and we’ll call you when there’s an oil spill. “

Similarly, Eastman, whose legal machinations are obvious informs the whole rebel conspiracy, emerged from the isolated halls of the Conservative Academy as dean of an inconspicuous law school in devising an illegal and possibly treacherous way for Trump to keep the Oval Office. Suddenly, he was also bathed in the intoxicating spotlight, making serious and difficult decisions that could (and probably would) lead to a socio-political disaster in this country, similar to the Civil War. His sinister speculations clearly knew no bounds, as he confidently passed on his secret knowledge of the Supreme Court’s deliberations – knowledge that was (apparently) passed on to him by an equally arrogant and unelected nobody, Ginny Thomas, whose only claim to fame lay in fact. that she married the Supreme Court. As Nichols writes:

Greatness, called; if it was necessary to intimidate the nation’s highest court with civil unrest, well, the eggs must be broken and all that.

Clark and Eastman were among a group of mediocre people who saw in Trump a kind of patron saint of the Third String, the outsider who would sweep away the elites who controlled Washington and replace them with a new elite – himself. As long as you work in booths, fight for grants or have fun for concerts with minor campaigns.

As Nichols points out, Eastman has since endured the disgrace of being exposed like an insidious tit by his former boss, Judge J. Michael Lutig, but his time in the barrel, unfortunately for him, is not over. And his license to practice law is certainly subject to confiscation, not to mention his personal freedom.

The examples that Nichols provides will no doubt increase in January. Six hearings continue, with other mediocre people with similar delusions of greatness exposed as House of Representatives elected committee continues to roll the stones, but the reality is that Trump himself provided four years of unskilled “wanted” during his ill-fated term. on the post. His press secretaries it involved a chain of absolutely no one, elevated to positions where Americans were forced to try to take them seriously. His appointments from the federal agency were incompetent to men, lobbyists for pollutantsor just corrupt thugs. The people he put in charge of dealing with the deadliest pandemic in the United States in more than a century were for the most part charlatans and ideological, lazy fools.

In fact, with Trump, it was a parade of mediocre and tertiary from the beginning. Because when you rely on the worst, the dumbest saliva you can find, they are so incredibly grateful that it never occurs to them to say no.
