A solitary neuron in the President’s brain that recommended against firing Robert Mueller has reportedly been outvoted by all the other neurons which enthusiastically approve of getting rid of the special counsel.
The isolated neuron had used all available information in a fairly straightforward logical analysis to reach the conclusion that, even if the technical authority were present, firing Mueller would be a terrible idea and would almost certainly represent a gross abuse of power.
However, the cautionary recommendation was lost in the noise of the approximately 100 billion other neurons in Trump’s brain which are excited to fire Mueller as soon as possible.
A small number of neurons were preoccupied with other matters, such as whether to bomb France, how to shake hands better, and if it was too soon to hold another cabinet meeting because that was great fun.
As is their customary practice, Trump’s neurons in the medial frontal cortex region responsible for impulse control abstained from voting.
