Has There Just Been a Coup?
A general takes over as chief of staff and immediately reacts by firing a guy who we know is Trump's alter ego, without a word of complaint from Trump.
In the last couple of days we have seen Trump order the military around without authority in the LGBT matter, come within inches of starting a war with North Korea. drastically damage our standing in the world, risking further conflicts in which the military would pay the price, and license the police to effectively start a war of terror against our own people.
Maybe that was a little bit too far for the military. Did Trump really appoint Kelly to his new post, or was it forced on a man who has now been revealed as a weak, sniveling President who knows nothing except how to make threats?
Probably not, and if it is true, we may never see behind the curtain, with a suddenly controlled Trump still sitting in the Oval Office, pretending to make decisions, but with everything signed off on by the military, which would just wait things out until 2020, when a more rational seeming tyrant could be elected.
Anyway, there's a good Tom Clancy book in there somewhere. Too bad it's reached the point in our country that it could be more than a book.
