What Trump just did seems like what a person in a panic and not thinking clearly would do

He seems like a drunk dialer type only in this case a panicked, unhinged tweeter. Either he now knows they have something big on him and so he is trying to shift the focus (which will backfire in this case because now everyone is wondering what is going on) or he is just posting bullshit he heard on right wing radio thinking it is true. I think with Sessions having to recuse himself, this kind of freaked Trump out as well. He sees his safety buffer starting to crumble.

I picture him not getting much sleep last night picturing himself in jail or being impeached or running all the things he set up with Russia through his head wondering what authorities heard. His brain starts to panic and short circuit and he tries to come up with ways to "fix" the situation so he sends this nutty tweet that is either false or just blew the lid off of the fact that the FBI and CIA are putting a case together and had good reason to listen to him.

Whatever he was thinking last night it was not of a person with a sound mind.

1. Will Trump go to the Russian Embassy and ask for asylum?

Or perhaps the Ecuadorian Embassy?

12. Either one seems like a safe bet for him. But the Equadorians

would allow him to act like an asshole and still let him stay safe from justice.

14. And pursue his hobby of attacking women.

So he and his asylum partner would have much in common.

2. If I were Trump, I'd stay away from that Russian guy who keeps

flying his jet to places where Trump is. I'd be concerned about that guy, even though Trump might think he's an ally. Putin has a short fuse and can take all sorts of actions if he's concerned that things will be revealed he doesn't want revealed. Trump's skating close to the edge of seriously embarrassing Putin. That could be a dangerous thing to do, I think.

13. Yep. If the King of Fertilizer shows up with a Candy-gram for tRump,

he might want to pass on this gift.

5. So peculiar,

Trump goes on a ballistic tirade squawking about wiretaps
and then pivots to throw a tantrum about Celebrity Apprentice.
Talk about fucking nutcases. Trump is certifiable.

7. Celebrity Apprentice seems to be what he wants on his tombstone


Jefferson wanted his Statute for Religious freedom and and founding of a University on his tombstone, Trump wants people to know he hobnobbed with movie stars.

6. Why this morning?

Did someone call him with bad news? Or did he wake up with his blood sugar out of whack.

10. Because of Breitbart article yesterday

That is why he described it as Obama wiretapping Trump Yower, not Vomey or the FBI. I think the Sessions recusal surprised, angered, and alarmed Trump. He saw what Sessions had done as being nothing, didn't see what the big deal was. But now everyone else seemed to think it was a big deal. Trump met with a lot of RNC and donor elites last night. Might have gotten and earful.

15. Also, with Sessions out of the investigation, it won't be managed in a way that

protects Trump. That was Sessions' primary function as AG--to derail any investigation that seemed to be getting too close.

8. Trump was probably up all night doing who knows what.

When he wakes up he'll realize he's not on Celebrity Apprentice anymore.

11. I don't think he sees himself in jail. He probably has revenge fantasies. Got pissed off about

 

Sessions' recusal.
