The Tell-Tale Tweets

The old man’s obsession began right after the election. Everywhere he went people were talking about Russia. He thought “winning” would make the talk go away. Instead, the voices grew louder, speaking of collusion, a dossier, and a urine-stained mattress. With all the power he possessed, he couldn’t make the voices stop. After a time he came upon a solution, get rid of James Comey. That would make it all stop. He met with Comey and requested his loyalty but Comey did not agree. He asked Comey to publicly proclaim his innocence but Comey would not. The old man wasn’t sleeping well and when he did sleep he had nightmares of losing all he had worked for. It was Comey that would be his undoing. He had people watching Comey for signals he might be ready to attack. The old man would get him first… he must… so he fired him. Bragging to his Russian friends he had made his problems go away. But they did not.

Too Little Too Late

Within hours he realized things had only gotten worse. People were saying he “obstructed justice” and Comey was still out there. Information leaked to the press that could only have come from Comey. His hand-picked Attorney General recused himself, removing the sole barrier from future attacks. Congress was reacting to the leaked information and the little man that replaced Sessions appointed a Special Counsel without telling him, Mueller was the Special Counsel’s name.

The old man was sleeping even less. Wandering the halls of the White House late at night. Calling all his friends, though his calls more frequently were going to voice-mail. The only release he had from this madness was his tweets!

They started slow, talking about “fake news” and “no collusion!” He wanted to fire Mueller too but his worthless aides kept telling him not to. It would only make things worse. The old man’s tweets started coming at a faster pace. They were becoming more deranged, with clarity missing and spelling worse than before. He knew he was out of control but he couldn’t help himself.

Then an announcement came on a Friday that one or more indictments would come on Monday. His tweets became frantic, he blamed Clinton… and Obama. He didn’t know who they would be coming for. Would it be Flynn, Manafort, Kushner, his own son? Would they already be coming for him?

Monday came and there was an early announcement that Manafort and his man Gates were being charged. The old man scoured the charges and saw nothing about Russia. He tweeted, “NO COLLUSION” in all caps. Then a third indictment was announced. Another man, Papadopoulos, had been arrested way back in July. He’d plead guilty and been secretly working with the prosecution. The old man had a rat in his organization. What did he know, what had he learned?


The old man couldn’t take it any more, he has a picture of Mueller he constantly stares at, now thinking of him as he once thought of Comey. He noticed a pale blue, vulture-like eye which appeared to be staring at him. Mueller must be gotten rid of. He thought to himself, “I’ll fire him! Yes, how could that go wrong?
