Have you noticed that every couple months the Democrats and their news media go into breathless sputtering over the possibility that President Trump is going to fire Mueller?
If I’m not mistaken the last “He’s going to fire Mueller!!” Sturm und Drang happened shortly before Christmas.
At that time, it was Congresswoman Jackie Speier who started the breathless panic when she told KQED that she heard a rumor that Trump planned to fire Mueller while Congress was on Christmas break.
Yeah. It didn’t happen. But several days the media and Democrats howled and raged over the prospect.
Well, after the termination of Andrew McCabe this past Friday, the pearl-clutching “He’s going to fire Mueller” drama queens once again began to rev their engines.
The always hapless Ted Lieu appeared on MSNBC last night and declared, “If the President does go ahead and fire Robert Mueller, we would have people take to the streets. I believe there would be widespread civil unrest because Americans understand that the rule of law is paramount.”
Hey, Ted. That’s why Andrew McCabe got fired – because the rule of law is paramount and McCabe lied under oath (which is illegal).
Lieu and dingbats like him love to threaten civil unrest over the possibility that President Trump might fire Mueller.
And here’s the thing that I’m wonder about all this Sturm und Drang.
Is it possible that President Trump has absolutely no desire to fire Mueller?
Could it be that Trump’s objective instead is to get the many caterwauling voices of the ResistanceLOL on record defending Mueller tooth and nail?
Donald Trump fascinates me. He is nothing like your typical politician. And over the last couple years I’ve seen him use Twitter to deliberately throw people into a tizzy. He dangles something out there just to get the pearl-clutching responses.
And despite what idiots like Ted Lieu believe, I don’t think he does it because he’s unhinged or reckless.
I think there is a very calculated objective to his tweets.
Take the latest attacks on the Mueller investigation that President Trump launched after McCabe was fired:
The Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime. It was based on fraudulent activities and a Fake Dossier paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC, and improperly used in FISA COURT for surveillance of my campaign. WITCH HUNT!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 18, 2018
Why does the Mueller team have 13 hardened Democrats, some big Crooked Hillary supporters, and Zero Republicans? Another Dem recently added…does anyone think this is fair? And yet, there is NO COLLUSION!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 18, 2018
A total WITCH HUNT with massive conflicts of interest!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 19, 2018
Once again, the pearl-clutching hysterics see these tweets and start howling that he plans to fire Mueller.
So they rally to defend Mueller like he’s Jesus to Trump’s Pontius Pilate.
And I’m starting to think Trump does all that on purpose.
After all, if these guys go all in for Robert Mueller – even to the point where they threaten civil unrest to keep him in place – what happens if Mueller’s investigation exonerates President Trump?
Suddenly those same people who spent the last year portraying Robert Mueller as the most noble, virtuous, honorable truth-seeker ever are going to be hopping mad.
But not at Trump. Instead, they’ll be furious with Mueller.
There will be the inevitable push to discredit the same man they’ve spent a year defending.
Donald Trump is no idiot – no matter how much the ResistanceLOL may think he is.
He knows – just as we do – that the Democrats, the news media and the so-called ResistanceLOL are counting on Robert Mueller to be their savior.
And the more Trump complains about him, the more these guys rally to Mueller’s side.
If all their hopes for Mueller get dashed on the rocks of reality, what will these people do?
And you think the Sturm und Drang is bad now.
Just imagine how outraged and hysterical they’ll be if Mueller fails to live up to their grand expectations and deepest fantasies.
Is it possible that Trump is doing this on purpose just to corner these idiots and make them eat their words?
Now, I admit, this is just conjecture on my part.
But over the last few years I’ve gotten to see how Donald Trump operates. And he’s an expert at setting his opponents up to trip over their own idiocy.
So I can’t help but wonder if that’s the case here.
Personally, I doubt President Trump has any plans to fire Mueller. But clearly he thinks working these guys up into a lather over the possibility works to his advantage.
And I think it does.
First of all, it keeps them occupied – like a cat chasing a laser-pointer beam.
While they’re all busy sputtering and “well-I-nevering” over Robert Mueller, we get closer and closer to the release of the Inspector General’s findings. And I think those findings are going to be a game-changer.
I also suspect that Mueller’s investigation will be impacted by the IG’s reports.
Like Sundance tweeted out the other day:
12. These people are about to be absolutely blindsided, just like they were in the 2016 election. pic.twitter.com/h5mDmuqlJb

And part of the reason they’re going to be blindsided is because they’ve put all their ResistanceLOL eggs in the Mueller basket.
Like I said, Trump’s criticisms of Mueller are forcing these guys to go all-in defending the man.
And that will be infinitely difficult for them to walk back if Mueller’s investigation doesn’t go the way they hope.
But more importantly, what happens when the IG’s reports come out and the shit hits the fan?
When we learn everything that was done by Obama’s DOJ and FBI – not only during the election but after Trump won – Mueller’s investigation may have no choice but to shut down.
And all these angry ResistanceLOL-fighters who have put their undying faith in Robert Mueller will be left with nothing.
And my gut tells me President Trump is banking on that.
Let’s be honest here.
Who is more likely to know the Big Picture?
Joy Reid, Rachel Maddow, Ted Lieu, and the assorted ResistanceLOL celebrities?
Or President Donald J. Trump?
And that right there is why I think there’s a method to Trump’s tweeting that just might surprise us.
