Except except except that the narritive is that Trump is the AntiChrist, Hitler, and worse rolled into one. To nail him for jaywalking is sorta anticlimactic, no?
Trump has committed all the crimes, so it doesn't matter what they get him on.

If it gets rid of him, it's good enough.

They understand he will not commit suicide in his bunker.

If all you could get Satan-Hitler on was felony jaywalking, wouldn't you do it?

Trump is not the AntiJunior: That's an insult to the AntiJunior.

The belief that Trump is the AntiJunior is predicated on the belief that Hillary is Junior.

That is a heresy adumbrated by Rabbi Michael Lerner in 1992.
Remember "the politics of meaning"? :BigGrin3:

That's because it's the best bunker. A big beautiful bunker. Gold everywhere. Great walls.

At the risk of stating the obvious:

The headline quotes the Pope: "A person who thinks only about building walls and not bridges is not a Christian."

Since Trump thinks about building both walls and bridges, the Pope's conclusion does not apply to Trump.

However, no one has ever accused the Pope (or the lamestream media) of being an expert at constructing valid or sound syllogisms.

Weird choice:
Trump intends to nominate extreme-weather expert for top White House science and tech role

President Trump intends to nominate Kelvin Droegemeier, an expert in extreme weather from the University of Oklahoma, as his top science and technology adviser at the White House, according to an administration official.

Droegemeier’s selection, if approved by the Senate, could soon end a roughly 19-month vacancy at the top of the Office of Science and Technology Policy — a critical arm of the White House that guides the president on such issues as self-driving cars, artificial intelligence, emerging medical research and climate change.

Droegemeier is a meteorologist by trade who has also served in government, including as Oklahoma’s secretary of science and technology, and he aided the federal National Science Board under former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

From the link:

“One reason is soaring energy demand, especially in developing Asia. In 2006-16, as Asia’s emerging economies forged ahead, their energy consumption rose by 40%”

It seems that there is a bit of a disconnect. If the world’s demand for fossil fuel energy is to be reduced, then the global economy must be curbed. But the same parties who fear global warming the most tend to view ‘America First’ economics as some kind of reprehensible fascism, rather than just what the planet needs. Every protectionist tariff that discourages global trade is doing more for the environment than the Paris accord ever did.

Orange is the new green.
