“Top Intel Topples Trump” meets “The Caine Mutiny”

Top Guns in the White House Briefing Room showed signs of shifted loyalty & dusted off the plank…

Genre: Political Madcap Thriller

“Whose Logline is it anyway”?

In order to relieve the captain of command & prevent the loss of the ship; underlings cause Queeg to lose it & play with his marbles.

Top Security mavens say one thing – the President says the opposite.  2 contradictory statements cause them to consider Mutiny while psychiatrists look for his marbles.

You’ve got to admit the similarities between the two are amazing. 

The dialogue in Herman Wouk’s WWII novel & 1954 movie starring Humphrey Bogart is spot on with the August 2, 2018 surprise appearance of Trump’s Top 5 Intel Officials at the White House Press Briefing on Russia’s 2016 election interference.

Irony: while on a split screen, Trump spouts his ‘Russian Hoax’ mantra to the rabid crowd at a Pennsylvania Rally.

I present to you actual dialogue as evidence from “The Caine Mutiny” movie script:

“Has it every occurred to you that our captain might be unbalanced”?


“The man is a Freudian delight – he crawls with clues”!

‘If Ivanka weren’t my daughter’…yada, yada, yada

“The Caine is a Floating Mistake”!

‘This Administration’s running like a fine tuned machine’!

“There will be no Liberty for 3 months.  I won’t be made a fool of”!

‘I’m building the wall even if we have to close down the Government’!

And, finally & not a moment too soon…

“Captain Queeg has every symptom of acute paranoia.  He’ll snap any day”!

‘I want 5 children like in my own family because with 5 then I will know that one will be guaranteed to turn out like me’!  Playboy Magazine 1990
