Paul Manafort trial “spinning” Trump “into a frenzy.”

You don’t say?

In the Trump West Wing, new external pressure inevitably brings the buildup of internal heat, followed by its release, often most visibly in a series of tweets. The start of Paul Manafort’s federal trial this week has triggered Trump’s hottest blast yet, and has renewed the possibility that Trump will fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. “This is a terrible situation and Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further,” Donald Trump tweeted yesterday. “Bob Mueller is totally conflicted, and his 17 Angry Democrats that are doing his dirty work are a disgrace to USA!”

Whether it’s confidence, bluster, or delusion, Trump is venting to advisers both inside and outside the White House that the Manafort trial proves Mueller has nothing on him and his family, because Manafort’s trial doesn’t involve Russia or the 2016 campaign. “The Manafort trial is spinning him into a frenzy,” one Republican in frequent contact with the president told me. Another Republican told me Trump thinks “the only thing the trial shows is that Manafort is a sleaze.”

Sources say Trump is increasingly taking his legal defense into his own hands—very much at his own peril. The Sessions tweet crossed a line into what many interpreted to be outright obstruction of justice. Trump also is arguing that he wants to sit for an interview with Mueller, against his lawyers’ advice, The New York Times reported. This is partly driven by Trump’s frustration with his legal team’s inability to end the Mueller probe.

The article also claims that Trump is lashing out at Rudy Giuliani for revealing a previously secret meeting that his son held before the Trump Tower meeting with the Russians. 

I actually kind of feel that this article only reinforces what we are already observing with our own eyes. 

We can see for ourselves that Trump is losing it with every one of his ego massaging pep rallies, and with every one of his batshit crazy tweets. 

By the way, I love how Trump refers to Manafort as a “sleaze,” as if any other kind of person would ever actually work for somebody like him. 

If he wants to see more sleazes all he has to do is call a Cabinet meeting, or better yet look in the mirror.

    Todd Kincannon, former executive director of the South Carolina Republican Party, has reportedly killed his dog due to his belief that he is Jesus Christ and needed to perform a sacrifice.

    The 37-year-old Kincannon “intentionally, willfully, maliciously, cruelly and needlessly” mutilated Bailey by choking and stabbing the medium-sized dog multiple times with two knives, according to an arrest warrant.

    Kincannon told the first officer he killed the dog because, “I’m the second coming of Christ and I got a command from God to do it,” according to an incident report.

    Another police officer reported that Kincannon said “that every 1,000 years there needs to be a sacrifice and blood must be spilt.”

      Well, his dog at least is in Heaven now and maybe can join our beagles and other dogs in dancing joyfully on moon beams. They certainly will welcome this poor beleaguered animal to dog heaven with throngs of angels and a comfy bed of angel wing feathers. Kincannon must be certifiable. Does he have a family or has he “sacrificed” them as well?

    6 months of Trump’s excuses for not doing an interview with Mueller: a timeline

    …Trump certainly wants people to think he’s eager to be interviewed, because he’s said as much publicly. He’d “100 percent” rebut Comey’s accusations under oath, he said in June 2017. He was “looking forward” to the interview, he said this January. “Nobody wants to speak more than me,” he said in May.

    Yet he and his team have constantly delayed, obfuscated, and refused to actually agree to do it — offering a shifting series of purported explanations that look a whole lot like excuses

    Trump is a chicken chit, he does not want to be interviewed. He is a weak little LIAR and cannot be interviewed because he is as guilty as hell. The only stain in America is TRUMP the most disgusting pathetic azz wipe on the planet. He is going down and it shows. Like the devil he hisses and snarls at truth. He is a scientology pos sob. It will be a holiday when he is gone for good. Freaken ugly azz slob.

    And there’s your obstruction tweet.

    And doesn’t Manafort have the most gag worthy fashion sense? That python jacket just sucks. Cashmere denim? Is there such a thing? Colbert just shreds him.
