(62,959 posts)he has a cush job being the loud mouth halfwit he's always has been. he gets paid for it and free health care.

he's a self promoting opportunist.

he's blowing smoke to look as if he stands for it.

but if push came to shove, he would be the first to back off and claim some bullshit reason not to.

whatever, matty.

So yes, Matt, by all means resign.

He is in the limelight now and loves it.

Then he would simply be another Trump lawyer.
