I can hear the prosecutors in New York State sharpening their pencils. Trump's fate is looking more certain than ever.

Christie is well known for insulting and belittling people who disagree with or oppose him, kind of like a mini- or proto-Trump. Trump was his usual enraged bull Trumpy self, setting the bar for conduct extremely low. New Jersey knew enough to get rid of Christie, and hopefully we'll do the same with Trump...

He was on ABC. I think there's a BIG problem when POsTUS's debate prep opponent is also invited as a commentator on said debate. But, even though he did his best to smear Joe, he straight-out admitted that that was NOT what they were prepping for, and Dump got out of hand.

News excerpt:

"Trump aides and allies, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal strategy, said heading into the weekend that Trump h"ad not been in formal preparations. The president offered mixed messages Sunday with his confirmation that Giuliani and Christie were prepping him, essentially combining to play the role of Biden. Yet Trump downplayed the sessions."
