Trump has been a really irritating turd on tweeter the past couple of days. We could pick any number of reasons why he is lashing out. Some people are theorizing that Mueller is about to come down with some more indictments and I suppose they are implying that the Trump administration is aware of this. That’s possible. This tweet seems to make that plausible.
It was pointed out, by many news outlets, that the source of this retweet from Trump:
Is from a racist, xenophobic, conspiracy theorist. Take a quick look at the garbage he pushes. Yeah. He’s an Alex Jones type. It’s utter trash. This isn’t the first time Trump has retweeted from a garbage source and there’s no reason to think this will be the last.
Now…I’m hearing from several different places that there is about to be a release of new vid(s) or audio of Trump being a crudball. I do firmly believe that Russia has incriminating footage of Trump that they will release at the right time, that being right before midterms or before the 2020 election. Not now. We all can assume that “The Apprentice” has all kinds of clips of Trump being a pig. It was reported recently by an associate producer that, yes…those tapes exist. It is also being reported that Trump is setting up a counter narrative for any such future tapes being released, by creating this new story that it wasn’t even his voice on the “Access Hollywood” tape and therefore any future tape being released would similarly be questionable. This is the tried-and-true “creation of a counter narrative is of equal weight to any allegation and therefore negates the discussion entirely” stance that has worked so well for Trump in the past and is being utilized by Roy Moore to decent effect.
This paragraph from a recent NY Times Piece is being picked up on:
“But something deeper has been consuming Mr. Trump. He sees the calls for Mr. Moore to step aside as a version of the response to the now-famous “Access Hollywood” tape, in which he boasted about grabbing women’s genitalia, and the flood of groping accusations against him that followed soon after. He suggested to a senator earlier this year that it was not authentic, and repeated that claim to an adviser more recently. (In the hours after it was revealed in October 2016, Mr. Trump acknowledged that the voice was his, and he apologized.)”
I find it hard to believe that Trump is creating the new narrative to deal with a future problem simply because- Trump is not capable of any such subtle manipulations. It’s very unlikely. The quotes themselves are picked from entirely different and unrelated time periods. So…no. It is possible something new might come out but it isn’t going to be from the Russians, it isn’t going to be from “The Apprentice” because of NDAs, and it will be totally coincidental wherever it may come from.
The Moore-Jones situation in Alabama is proceeding nicely, so long as no one rocks the boat and Jones keeps his negative ads running in Alabama. It’s literally a no-win situation for Congressional Republicans if all things remain as they are. If you’re like me, you have a feeling one of the women will make a timely appearance on “The View” or some such program any time soon and to great effect. As long as no Democratic politicians go on some damned crusade, this is going to be good.
