Trump said Mueller's team "would cross a red line if they delve into Trump family finances unrelated to Russia." https://t.co/KfmMVcySSo

Even by ‘narcissist who’s never been told no’ standards, this is… special. Last time a Republican president started saying stuff like this in public, he was suffering from encroaching Alzheimer’s (And, yes, I do remember Dubya’s losing battle with the English language, but I don’t remember him telling a reporter that he certainly hoped no judge would get their hands on the contents of Cheney’s man-sized safe.)

Of course, there’s a core of Trumplodytes who’ll be with him to the bitter end…

Not booze, but there are drugs which could explain some of his paranoia and insanity.
LSD and PCP come to mind.
New York is The City That Never Sleeps. This is a greeting from The City Of Irascible Old Men Who Fall Asleep At 9:30 And Wake Up at 2:30 And Can’t Get Back To Sleep (one reason why they are Irascible)
If you have any advice for us in this predicament…
This doesn’t look like LSD to me. At all. Uh .. a friend told me what LSD was like.
Yeah. That’s my story and I’m sticking with it.
Hmm. OTOH, The Donald does rather resemble a President drawn by S. Clay Wilson.
He’s taken Propecia:
The runny nose part may explain the sniffing heard on the interview recording.
@joel hanes: S. Clay, baby!
Something tells me that Bobby Three Sticks is not going to take this kindly. . .
Jesus, what do you take Propecia for?
ETA: Hair loss?! Fuckin’ A, I’ll go bald.
Trump is a lifelong gluesniffer.
The way I figure, Bannon is just The Checkered Demon in disguise.
Nice day for somethin’
@M. Bouffant: maybe. But I’m sticking with my theory, tertiary syphillus with a side of coke.
@JAFD: i’ve found having the weather channel on puts me right out….
@Steeplejack: No sheet. I got permanent tinnitus from a few months on a starter/sampler antidepressant. (Lexapro, if anyone would like to avoid it.) Didn’t make me any less depressed, either.
Remember the sniffling in his debates with HRC? Carrie Fisher, may she rest in peace, confidently diagnosed him as a coke addict at the time.
@Steeplejack: The Don’s doctor also takes Propecia:
Dr. Bornstein said he also took finasteride and credited it for helping maintain his own shoulder-length hair and Mr. Trump’s hair. “He has all his hair,” Dr. Bornstein said. “I have all my hair.”
Have you seen Bornstein? He has all his hair in the same way a beach at low tide has all its water.
Cry Me A River, Tania Maria
@TenguPhule: Or he’s just an egomaniacal idiot. Given the conduct of Donny Jr., idiocy appears to run in that family.
@TenguPhule: Jenkum & ketamine. A pinch of “bath salts”.
Yesterday was one of those days that I would visit websites like “Powerline”, “Redstate”, “The Blaze”, “Gateway Pundit”, and such to just read the comments section. Just to read what the pulse is of the so-called conservatives, at least in hopes those were not bots and Russian agents posting on those sites. First take, it is still surprising to how adamant these folks are to brush stuff aside — Trump is good, media and all who oppose Trump are bad. Second, the relativism in peoples arguments to which they defend Trump and the Republican party. Third, a continuation of two, on how Obama and Democratic party have done so much worse in eight-years and WILL DO, but had this many stories had been published against Obama, they would have been the first to raise their pitchforks and torches.
Yesterday’s stories were Dana R., the California congressman, being the Russian stooge in Congress (with ties to the same lawyer that Fredo Trump had met at Trump Tower); as well as the NYT story where Trump “warns” the special prosecutor that the investigation should be limited to only the collusion with Russia allegations — which stories are sprouting on how the Trump family seem to have been party of money-laundering for the Russians (which Josh Marshall first speculated back in July 2016 was happening).
@eemom: cokeheads get paranoid too. Though I think the stupid is inborn.
@M. Bouffant: and much more likely, so would blow.
Hmmmm… that MAGA’s tweet… whatEVER could be the reason he has Mexican and Israeli flag icons…? It’s a mystery…
Never mind the flags: what’s really interesting is that moron seems to be saying, indirectly, is that he’d collaborate with Obama (a “foreigner”) against Trump (a traitor/Benedict Arnold). One would hope that others would point that out to him, on Twitter.
Nice to see that at least one fellater of Preznit* Lying Littledick is starting to come around.
PS: Of course, if people actually DID point that out to him, his head be a-splodin’. Win-win-win!
Given that dipshit’s history and propensity for prevaricating, one wonders from which mail-order shop he got his degree.
@M. Bouffant: I think the sniffing is from the pseudo-ephedrine or “baby speed” that he takes
Sister Rail Gun of Warm Humanitarianism
@Jeffro: Pseudoephedrine is a decongestant that is taken to treat sniffling. I’ve never had it cause them.
Enhanced Voting Techniques
Oh my, Trump threw Sessions under the bus…
Amazing, evil people can’t trust other evil people these days. tsk tsk
wrt that last tweet, clearly Trump (& Republicans) are on the Benedict Arnold side on this one though. It’s food for thought. If only it was a last meal food for thought thing for them. Ah well, we’ll always have Lafayette.
Good take on that song.
Enhanced Voting Techniques
@SFAW: Apparently the little dear forgets Arnold is an American hero and a traitor at the same time.
You know why I’ sure Trump isn’t a cokehead? He never accused Clinton of using cocaine.
Seriously, think about it. He accused her of being corrupt and unhealthy. He accused Obama of undermining our relationships with our allies and showing weakness to our adversaries. He accused Alicia Machado of having a sex tape. He accused Jeb Bush of being low-energy. The man has nothing except projection. So if he’s not accusing people of coke use, he’s almost certainly not using himself.
Why look for explanations other than that the man is a moron. He’s barely literate, has never had anyone say no to him and has always been rewarded for bad behavior. Combine this with an oversize ego and you get a horrible human being. No drugs needed.

@BubbaDave: Amen. Consider the moniker of “Lyin’ Hillary” when T himself was and is the absolute liar in chief, and all the shade on the Clinton Foundation when in actuality we saw the reporting about the shenanigans of his own Trump Foundation. It has totally got to the point that any time he accuses anyone of anything, I automatically assume it’s because he’s doing it himself.
Gotta wonder about the whole “rigged voting” allegations.
@JAFD: I’d suggest a mid-afternoon nap
@eemom: She recognized his foul stench when she was brought on board.
When the suspect says “Don’t look over here!”, where should one look. Look REALLY hard.
@Spaniel: hey! I called out Russian money laundering back then also! I still believe that is the primary crime RM is investigating and bring charges on
Because V. Putin is just like Lafayette, right?
