Donald Trump has spent today taking credit for the size of John McCain’s funeral, and criticizing McCain for not coming back from the dead to thank him for it. He’s also spent the day attacking George Conway, the husband of his senior adviser Kellyanne Conway. So could Trump possibly find a way to humiliate himself even further before the day ended? You already know the answer.
It started at around 10pm eastern time, when Donald Trump tweeted this quote: “The reason we have the Special Counsel investigation is that James Comey (a dirty cop) leaked his memos to a friend, who leaked them to the press, on purpose.” There are a couple of problems here. First, none of this is factually correct. Second, the quote came from a woman named Kennedy, who occasionally hosts a show on Fox Business Channel, and previously hosted a show on MTV. That’s right, Trump is now reduced to quoting someone from MTV to try to make his case.
Then Trump tweeted this crediting it to Sean Hannity: “John Solomon: As Russia Collusion fades, Ukrainian plot to help Clinton emerges.” The trouble here is that no one has any idea what this is even supposed to mean. With each passing day, more evidence emerges that Donald Trump and his campaign criminally conspired with the Russian government to alter the outcome of the 2016 election. And what’s this nonsense about Hillary and Ukraine?
It’s becoming more clear by the hour that Donald Trump is falling to pieces under the increasing pressure of his worsening criminal scandals. Trump picked a fight with a dead man today, and the dead man won. Then Trump tried to top it by quoting someone from MTV and making things up about Hillary Clinton. This just keeps getting more disturbing.
