Wondering on Wednesday (v109)

Holy moly, there's so much to wonder about tonight. Let's dive in.

What, exactly, would have been the compromise that would have saved us from the Civil War, I wonder? The president's personal General, John Kelly, went on Laura Ingraham's new show on the Trump News Network and educated us on the War Between the States.
It was always loyalty to state first back in those days. Now, it's different today. 
Why yes, yes it is.

Today, we have people thinking that states like Texas or California should secede from the Union - but they don't leave. And we don't have people fighting for the right to sell human beings in the town square anymore, either. Things are indeed different today.

Back to General Kelly:
But the lack of an ability to compromise led to the Civil War. And men and women of good faith on both sides made their stand where their conscience had to make their stand.
What was Kelly thinking, I wonder? Was there some historical figure who should have sacrificed their conscience, as it appears Kelly has done since becoming Chief of Staff? Is this just Kelly channelling his boss?  I mean, remember these comments from the prez?
People don't realize, you know, the Civil War, if you think about it,why? People don't ask that question, but why was there the Civil War? Why could that one not have been worked out?
Kelly also has echoed his boss with his attacks on Florida Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, who brought to light the somewhat odd condolence call from Trump to the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, who was killed in Niger along with three others. He told Ingraham he would never apologize to Wilson, whom he (at least so far falsely) accused of taking credit for getting a new FBI building funded, something that happened before she was in office.

Speaking of things Kelly's boss said, I wonder if anyone can think of any other President, living or dead, who would have responded to a terrorist attack in New York City by blaming one of New York's senators for, in effect, allowing the terrorist into the country? #whattheeverlovingsniff, I wonder, is wrong with this man?

And #whattheeverlovingsniff is wrong with his staff, that they dug up this nugget about Schumer? Why not blame Mitch McConnell, I wonder? He voted for the bill that included the Diversity Visa Lottery, too.

Now obviously, that question about McConnell was facetious - the question, of course, is why the hell is the president blaming anyone at all for this act, other than the person who was apprehended after being shot by law enforcement immediately after committing the act?

Or maybe the question is, what the hell is wrong with Trump?  In addition to bashing Schumer, he took this opportunity to call out the justice system.
We need quick justice and we need strong justice, much quicker and much stronger than we have right now. Because what we have right now is a joke and it's a laughingstock.
Why yes, yes it is. (In case you're wondering, I'm not talking about the justice system anymore...)

And finally, I wonder, who will be the next one exposed as a serial abuser?
