Premature, certainly, but ...

Well the Trumpster is filled with hydrogen  as was the Hindenburg.   Hydrogen or otherwise he is an incendiary risk.

Seems there are now moves to make Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani, register as an agent of foreign interests. Giuliani has continued to work for cluents in other countries in a posiibly political function. Seems he also asked Trump to promote his own son in the Shite House.

For a man who wanted to clean the Washington swamp Trump seems adept at picking some pretty slimy slitherers.

Trump is heating up his war on the media it seems.

Quote
Donald Trump just said something truly terrifying
"Stick with us. Don't believe the crap you see from these people, the fake news. ... What you're seeing and what you're reading is not what's happening."

This feels to me like a step beyond Trump's long-established willingness to exaggerate and sometimes outright lie in pursuit of his own agenda. Since he became a candidate three years ago, Trump has exhibited a casual relationship with the truth. It's become clear over that time that he is telling himself the story of his own life; whether that version comports with established facts has never been of major concern for the President.

[...]

[...] what Trump did in his VFW speech goes beyond simply saying lots of things that aren't true. (To be clear: He did that too!) He told the audience not to believe anything they see or read. That all media is fake. That everything that doesn't originate with Trump himself should be ignored.

Looks rather like another step towards the methods that the likes of Putin, Erdoğan and other well known pseudo dictators employ.

Cohen Has ‘Knowledge’ of Russia Campaign Conspiracy, Lawyer Says
President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, has "knowledge" about computer hacking and collusion that may interest Special Counsel Robert Mueller in his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, Cohen’s lawyer said.

One day after Cohen pleaded guilty to illegal campaign finance charges over hush money paid to a porn actress and a former Playboy model -- all but naming Trump as having ordered him to do it -- Cohen’s lawyer said Wednesday he would be happy to share the information with the special counsel or Congress.

Don't get your hopes up.

Oh, I understand the whole thing might sink into that swamp Trump said he would drain (but that he has actually extended in area and deepened). And if he gets dumped America and, by extension, the world will have Pence to deal with as Recusant said.

Unfortunately maturity has never cured my addiction to schadenfreude! Or maybe age, and experience, has sharpened it.

Congressman Guiterriz tells it as it is.  He is really outspoken and pretty close to the way that it is.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ScCMHhnkUk
