Another day, another Trump bombshell

I ended yesterday's blog with a somewhat prophetic comment.

After duly noting yesterday's Trump bombshell, with news that the president had apparently discussed some highly classified material with his Russian visitors, I openly wondered - and shuddered - at what today would bring.

Well, right on time about 5:30 Tuesday afternoon, the latest Trump thunderclap arrived.

The New York Times is reporting that the ousted FBI Director James Comey wrote a memo that suggests Trump asked him to shut down the FBI investigation into fired national security adviser Michael Flynn.

These are interesting times in Washington.

The nation's capital rumbles every day with the latest on Trump.

They are interesting here in Delco as well. I posted a note on Facebook after hearing the news last night and immediately the conversation exploded.

But that does not necessarily translate into getting involved in the democratic process at the ground level. Just months after standing in long lines to cast their ballots for president, voters here in Delaware County stayed away in droves for yesterday's municipal primary, just as expected.

Maybe there is a connection.

Maybe people are so turned off that they are turning their backs on the process as well.

The sun just came back up again.

We'll see what happens in Washington today.

It can't get worse than this, right?
