More stories out tonight. Trump in a blind rage all weekend: “President Trump spent the weekend at ‘the winter White House,’ Mar-a-Lago, the secluded Florida castle where he is king. … Trump was mad — steaming, raging mad.”
Top staffers leaking like a sieve with a big hole in the bottom. (Knives are out for Reince.)
President Trump’s astonishing and reckless accusation that he was wiretapped on orders from President Barack Obama should finally be the tipping point in how the country views him and his presidency. …
He signaled his lack of evidence first by reportedly pushing his White House staff to ransack sensitive intelligence information to find support for his claim. Then on Sunday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Trump wanted Congress to look into the matter and that the administration would offer no further comment.
A lot of Republican congress people made a bad Faustian bargain, but the folks around Trump made an even worse deal. Of course I don’t know what will happen, but I suspect the saner ones of them will begin leaving pretty soon, and that even the crazier ones may not stick around too much longer after that.
