Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump contended Monday that none of his underlings routinely defy his commands, despite numerous examples contained in Robert Mueller's report showing aides ignoring or refusing his dictates.

"Nobody disobeys my orders," Trump said during a walkabout on the South Lawn for the annual Easter egg roll.

He was questioned by CNN's Kaitlan Collins about whether he was worried some of his staff were shrugging off his requests, as depicted by Mueller, whose full redacted report was made public last week.

The document contained anecdote after anecdote of aides refusing to carry out some of Trump's demands to short-circuit the special counsel's investigation. The trend was so marked the report's authors made note of it in their assessment.


"The President's efforts to influence the investigation were mostly unsuccessful, but that is largely because the persons who surrounded the President declined to carry out orders or accede to his requests," the report read..............................................

3. Five words that say so much

Pathetic. If I had to sum him up in one word, that would be it.

2. In reality, hardly anybody obeys his orders

and even less have actual respect for Il Douche.
Like a true despot, the only people Trump trusts
are in his own family... and it's questionable
if there's much depth to that trust.

4. This is significant. Before, I'll venture that all of Trump's employees did....

do his bidding. But now, as president (loosely termed, small p, like his dick!) it seems many did refuse many an order by simply ignoring his commands. I love it as nothing spells powerless, inept, dickless and more than having staffers at all levels totally ignore his wishes, hope he forgets or lie about when those tasks will be done (like, never!).

Dickless, hopeless, ignored....what wonderful words.

14. So...your inferences and innuendos were "orders"? Please proceed...

(Meanwhile, Mr Trump,sir, you may want to look up the term "obstruction" It's slightly different than collision, but they often go hand in hand.)

15. Mueller cites disobedient staffers as one reason he let Trump off.

Which is obviously an idiotic "defense" but nonetheless, Trump should be kissing their asses.
