You Get a Tower Card and You Get a Tower Card and YOU get a Tower Card! (Don's Minions)
I thought this might be a good place to park Tower Card moments for Trump Minions.
Today Pompeo must have drawn the tower card! He went BAT-SHIT CRAZY with an NPR reporter after the interview.
Correspondent Mary Louise Kelly said she was interviewing Pompeo when he cut it short after she repeatedly pressed him on why he hasn't defended former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch. Yovanovitch was removed as the ambassador by President Donald Trump last year and has been a central figure in his impeachment.
It was after the interview that the real fun began. He requested a staff member bring the reporter to his office.
"He was not happy to have been questioned about Ukraine. He asked, 'Do you think Americans care about Ukraine?' He used the F word in that sentence, and many others," she said.
"He asked if I could find Ukraine on a map I said, 'Yes,' he called out for his aides to bring him a map of the world with no writing, no countries marked. I pointed to Ukraine he put the map away, he said, people will hear about this, and then he turned and said he had things to do, and I thanked him again for his time and left."
Holy Smokes Folks!
Who is next? I know more are coming
I wanted to add that after reading the story, I decided to search for an unmarked map of the world. I too was able to identify Ukraine on an unmarked map. I also am one of the people in the US who f***ing cares about Ukraine.
@Lovendures I saw that NPR report right before I went to bed last night. I always try to finish off the night on a positive note. I had not seen that Pompeo had berated the reporter. Too bad there aren’t tapes of that exchange! I wonder how his holier than thou followers would feel about that! In any case since I live in Europe, I too am well aware of where Ukraine is and understand the significance of the US being their ally and how it keeps everyone safer to do so. I also understand that the reporter was just doing her job and holding power accountable - which so many in the administration do not seem to be able to handle.
I look forward to more administration Tower card moments! As the circling of the drain speeds up, I am sure there will be many more as the panic that they will lose their power sets in.
I read about Pompeo’s unhinged episode with the NPR reporter last night. Seems like there are cracks widening in his holier than thou evangelical Christian facade. He is obviously scared, so that’s satisfying. However, what happens if his cult leader is acquitted? The hubris will be nauseating.
There are so many minions deserving exposure. It would be interesting to throw cards on them.
Students of the Tarot, this is an awesome thread idea. I feel Trump has been in a prolonged Tower card since the Impeachment began, and throughout then he keeps batting the Tower situation away from him with various projects that he thinks will save him, like the killing of the Iran military leader. I also have heard in my third eye throughout these months Trump needing assurances from his main protectors -- McConnell, Barr, and Pompeio.
It seems odd that a Secretary of State would suggest that a reporter would not be able to pick out a country on the map. Sounds like another case of projecting their own ignorance on others.
I too listened to the Pompeo interview and Mary Louise Kelly's recounting of the post interview rant designed to try and humiliate her. And now just read Pompeo's version of that rant. Of all the lies and mischaracterizations that we have all been subjected to over these past several years, for some reason this one hit me the hardest and I'm not sure why. I mean, on the surface, we've heard much worse things, but it left me sick to my stomach and scared.
Either I am sensing their fear of being uncovered, or I was hit with a very strong dose of the depths of their darkness. I fear for the journalists.
Could their Tower also be ours?
The more cornered they feel, the more rude and insulting they will be. They don’t like anyone to challenge their authority. They have not understood the fundamental concept of serving others in government and not themselves. I can only hope that more journalists begin to challenge those in the administration who are not being held to account for We the People.
The title of this thread is golden.

When I read this part of your post I saw Trump as King Kong on top of the the ultimate tower, theEmpire State Building, swatting away the planes and bombs. It doesn't matter how many he swats away, he will fall, just like Kong.
Don Kong.. That's a new one! ha ha.
Also, good point of projecting ignorance!
I had that same vision of Kong Don before my diagnosis when I was still very psychic. Same exact. I think I wrote about it somewhere on the forum.
Whoever wrote the title of this thread - THANK YOU - it made me laugh out loud. It really caught me, because I'm one of those people who gets the Tower in most spreads (that are more than 1 card) relating to myself...
The Pompeo thing happened during the week and was only reported yesterday. I too checked to see if I know where Ukraine is, I have to confess I had to guess a little, but I got it and now I know.
I'm just so sick of all the chaos....
Turtle Mitch, YOU get a Tower card today.
Your wall appears to have some cracks. Better hide in that shell of yours cuz when it falls, it is going to hurt. Bigly.
Thunder -Bolton -Lightning,
Very Very Frightening!
Something bad happens to Roger Stone, not getting context though. (Laura F) Feb.2020
DOJ asks judge to sentence Roger Stone to 7-9 years in prison | TheHill
His fate is sealed on Feb. 20th
That would be wonderful! Another one bites the dust!
You know, I wonder what Trump plans to do about his incarcerated buddies. Do you think he will pardon them, now that he knows McConnell will let him do whatever he wants to? Or do you think Trump will hold off doing so until after 2020?
It’s hard to tell what he will do. He hasn’t pardoned Manafort yet. Also, I think the democrats are waiting until he is out of office to indict the bad actors, that way they will actually face their crimes.
Never mind. Roger Stone has been saved by Trump. After the prosecutors sent their recommendations in recommending prison time, Trump tweeted. Now the prosecutor has left the case, and Trump has won on corruption again.
I am so sick of this. The darkness never ends. Why bother anymore? The damage to the collective and to our country is so great right now that I doubt we will ever heal it. I can only hope at this point is that Trump and his colleagues become victims of their own evil. If we must suffer from their darkness, it is only right that they do too!
Barr gets one today for sure.
Dude! Be careful the tower doesn't hit you as it implodes.
Attorney General William Barr has accepted an invitation to testify to the House Judiciary Committee next month, ending a year-long standoff that began when the panel first demanded his testimony in the aftermath of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.
The arrangement comes as Democrats have demanded answers about Barr's apparent intervention in the sentencing of President Donald Trump’s longtime ally Roger Stone, who was convicted last year on charges that he lied to congressional investigators and threatened a witness.
Hours after Trump railed against Justice Department prosecutors for recommending a seven- to nine-year sentence for Stone, DOJ rebuked its own team and issued a revised recommendation calling for a lighter sentence. The four prosecutors assigned to Stone’s case abruptly withdrewon Tuesday.
On Wednesday morning, Trump hailed Barr for "taking charge" of the matter, confirming suggestions that it was the attorney general himself who intervened.
Another person I watch on yt has said for a while now that every time she reads on Barr she gets the tower card. She said she has seen the worst cards for Barr, even more than the orange nightmare.
@lenor, Have you seen any of yesterday's interviews with the book's author, David Enrich? Really dark stuff, hopefully now coming to light.
