Despite being the most erratic lunatic in American history, Donald Trump is consistently predictable in certain ways. For instance if he learns that a scandal of his is about to be unearthed by the media, he tries to pick an arbitrary fight on Twitter or invent some other superficial controversy, in the hope of drowning out the real scandal that’s about to land. Judging by Trump’s explosion this afternoon, a whole lot of stuff is about to hit the fan.
First, Trump went full Hitler when it comes to his immigrant concentration camps. He insisted that his inhumane and deadly camps are somehow providing better conditions than these immigrants were facing before he abducted them – which is one of the most disgusting things the scumbag has ever said. Then he went on a bender about Mexico, the Democrats, Iran, you name it.
By the time the smoke cleared, Trump had posted half a dozen deranged tweets within the span of an hour. This is what Trump does whenever he’s learned that a particularly ugly scandal is about to surface. The question is what the scandal might be. If it were a new bombshell about his concentration camps, he probably wouldn’t have brought them up while trying to distract from it. So it’s probably about something else entirely.
Considering that Donald Trump has woken up twice this week and decided to begin attacking the New York Attorney General out of nowhere, the best bet is that he’s expecting some kind of criminal indictment against someone he cares about. Keep in mind that Trump can’t pardon state level charges against anyone. Stay tuned.
