The deep state in deep do-do

Honestly, Trump has got the worst enemies, as John Podhoretz observes:

Trump is fortunate in his political enemies. He ran against the worst possible Democratic candidate. And these revelations from Deep State Strzok are deeply threatening to the political and institutional viability of the Mueller probe itself — the very thing Democrats and left-liberals have spent the past year praying might do him in.

Did I call him a schmuck? Strzok is the ultimate shlimazel — a Yiddish term for a clumsy oaf who trips himself up at every turn. Strzok reassured his mistress that he’d stop Trump. He didn’t do it in 2016. And he may have contributed to not stopping Trump in 2020.

By the way, they’re no longer an item.

The left is yet to figure out that if left alone and to his own devices Trump would likely destroy himself sooner rather than later. Instead, just about everything they do to fight him actually ends up rebounding on them and helping him.

This is the real collusion story of the 2016 election and after: how the left enabled the election of Donald Trump and might just repeat their trick in two years time.
