re: #333 Hecuba’s daughter

Joy Reid just had a brief segment with MSNBC journalist Mike Viqueira. He was staking out Bob Mueller and trying to get a comment from him as he left church through a side door. Maybe it’s just me — but it seems that on Easter morning, it is totally inappropriate to stalk someone who has not committed any crime, who is infamous for not commenting, and who is trying to observe the most important holiday of his religion. Can we just leave honest people alone occasionally?

Which reminds me — is Trump attending church today?

Totally trends into tinfoil hat territory, but in my darker moments, I think: “Muller’s a Republican. Republicans always put power and party before law and the good of the country. He purposely left the report vague enough for Trump to potentially skate.”

Honestly, it’s probably just me, but I’ve fucking had it with hearing what an infallible bulwark of honesty and integrity Muller is. Regardless of my “theory” above, Muller probably knows that Trump should be out of office and his report is being grossly misinterpreted.

However, it feels like he’s going to pull the “Well, my job was just to investigate the claims, if the country slides into dictatorship, not my problem” horseshit.

So, if a reporter asks him an honest question as he’s leaving Mass, tough. There’s way more at stake right now than worrying about Muller being able to sing hymns.
