Donald Trump is having a really agitated night tonight, to say the least. Roger Stone is set to report to prison tomorrow, and Trump has to make the no-win decision of pardoning Stone and handing the Democrats an easy talking point for the election, or not pardoning Stone and running the risk that Stone finally unearths all that dirt he’s been collecting on Trump.
We’ve already seen Donald Trump post numerous increasingly bizarre right wing conspiracy theory articles about how traitor and confessed felon Michael Flynn is somehow an innocent victim in all this. This has led to questions about whether Trump might be planning to pardon Michael Flynn and Roger Stone both tonight. In any case, Trump is now ranting about Brian Williams of all people.
Trump just tweeted “Lyin’ Brian Williams of MSDNC, a Concast Scam Company, wouldn’t know the truth if it was nailed to his wooden forehead.” Yeah, we’re not even sure to start with that. The “Concast” joke never will be clever no matter how many times Trump uses it, and “MSDNC” sounds like Trump got confused while trying to order a McDLT. Trump isn’t exactly having a fun night.
