As if Donald Trump didn’t already have enough problems in Manhattan – on the verge of criminal indictment, numerous witnesses stacked against him – now Stormy Daniels has agreed to testify against him if needed. Trump may have just blown his surprise trial defense strategy by prematurely running his mouth. If so, Trump is now trying to make up for it by running his mouth even more.
After the Stormy Daniels news broke, Trump took to his own failed social network and announced that “I haven’t seen or spoken to her since I took a picture with her on a golf course, in full golf gear including a hat, close to 18 years ago.” Wait, what does that even have to do with anything? We’re not sure, but Trump then went on to insist that this was just another “false acquisition” when he perhaps meant “false accusation.”
In a subsequent post, Donald Trump began pushing conspiracy theories about how golf balls are made, ultimately declaring “LEAVE THE GOLF BALL ALONE.” Uh, is he okay? No he’s not. At this point it may be working slightly in Trump’s favor that he’s becoming so incoherent. If he were able put more words together coherently, he might be giving away his trial defense entirely.
