Over at The Resurgent, conservative blogger Erick Erickson's got a highly entertaining piece in which he talks Trump, at a grocery store, while shopping, with a GOP congressman and Trump TV surrogate who, for reasons that become obvious when you read the whole thing (that's an h/t), did not want to be named. This man is bitter, and that, in this case, is to all our benefit. Take a look at some of the choice quotes...

On the president’s profound effect on his party...
“Goddamn it, at least I'll probably lose too and won't have to put up with that shit.”

On the president's uncanny electoral success...
"It's like Forrest Gump won the presidency, but an evil, really fucking stupid Forrest Gump.”

On Forrest Gump itself, as a movie...
“I hate Forrest Gump. I listen to your podcast and heard you hate it too. What an overrated piece of shit movie. Can you believe it beat the Shawshank Redemption?”

On the president's arduous daily routine...
“He wakes up in the morning, shits all over Twitter, shits all over us, shits all over his staff, then hits golf balls. Fuck him.”

On the possibility of Robert Mueller finding himself suddenly unemployed...
“The shit will hit the fan if that happens and I'd vote to impeach him myself. Most of us would, I think. Hell, all the Democrats would and you only need a majority in the House. If we're going to lose because of him, we might as well impeach the motherfucker. Take him out with us and let Mike [Pence] take over. At least then we could sleep well at night.”

On the possibility of Mike Pence ascending to the presidency...
“You know having Mike as President would really piss off all the right people, too. They think they hate Trump. Mike is competent.”

On his own humble contributions to the administration...
“I say a lot of shit on TV defending him, even over this. But honestly, I wish the motherfucker would just go away.”

Now let’s all try to wash off the fact that this guy goes on TV to lie about this to all of us, every day.

If Geoff Rynex is honest, he still doesn't really understand what Bitcoin is.
