Yes, today is another free download book promo day, but how about a few short Trump doozies to go with that download deal?
Basically, it’s more troubles for Trump. Let’s do Russia first and then what people are saying about him.
Trump hasn’t talked to Mitch McConnell since August 9th. The conversation ended in a shouting match over McConnell’s failure to protect Trump from the Russia investigation by Senate committees. Sounds a lot like obstruction of justice (yes, it applies to Congressional committees too–not just the FBI, etc.) according to a US Attorney guest on Rachel Maddow’s show last night.
Meanwhile, Glenn Simpson, head of Fusion GPS, the company that paid for the Christopher Steele research and dossier on Trump, talked to Chuck Grassley’s Senate Judiciary Committee for TEN hours. The dossier, salacious details and all, was published on BuzzFeed in January. Grassley, of course, was hoping to find bias and who paid for the research in a failed attempt to help Trump, people like Rachel Maddow claim.
At the same time, dossier man himself, Christopher Steele, has apparently been talking with the FBI. He reportedly provided sources for the info that went into the report.
There’s undoubtedly more, but let’s move on to all the people saying Trump is unfit for office or otherwise incompetent.
First, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell doubts (privately) that Trump can save his presidency.
Senate Foreign Relations leader Bob Corker says Trump hasn’t demonstrated he is competent to lead.
Don Lemon, CNN anchor, last night in coverage of the Trump campaign rally said this,
“Well, what do you say to that? I’m just going to speak from the heart here — what we have witnessed is a total eclipse of the facts,” Lemon began, adding: “He’s unhinged. It’s embarrassing.”
From the same CNN article, Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said the speech made him “really question his fitness for office.”
From the New York Times article about Trump and McConnell , comes this,
“The quickest way for him to get impeached is for Trump to knock off Jeff Flake and Dean Heller and be faced with a Democrat-led Senate,’ said Billy Piper, a lobbyist and former McConnell chief of staff.”
So, as we all know, Trump is his own worst enemy. The real Trump is the one that’s NOT reading from a teleprompter. What he says at a rally, in a tweet, is not just posturing or crowd pleasing bombast–it’s his real feelings. It reveals how clueless he is. How angry he is. How unable to keep from shooting himself in the foot saying and doing stupid things not in his own self-interest. So yes, as the number and volume of voices calling him out grow, the end grows nearer and nearer.
