What the Hell is Trump So Worried About This Morning?

Donald Trump has had a huge stick up his ass this morning (and last night). He seems particularly concerned and alarmed right now, which I’m sure has many wondering what the hell he’s so worked up about.

That claim against Lester Holt is the most bizarre, because there is unedited footage of the interview sitting on the NBC website, and this is the first time in 14 months that Trump has suggested that the interview — where Trump admitted to firing Comey over Russia — was “fudged.”

This also comes a morning after attacking Carl Bernstein as a “degenerate fool” over “sloppy reporting.” (That sloppy reporting? Using Michael Cohen’s attorney, Lanny Davis, as a source, although weeks later, Lanny Davis said he was mistaken about what he told Bernstein but Bernstein didn’t retract because he had another source saying exactly what Davis told him).

He also attacked Bruce Ohr at the DOJ, who the Republicans accuse of bias. He’s basically a mid-level guy over in the DOJ, whose only bias is that, during the 2016 election campaign, he had concerns — based on evidence like the Steele Dossier — that the Trump campaign was being influenced by the Russians.

He’s attacking Bruce Ohr over the Steele Dossier; talking about Don McGahn; vehemently going after the press, in particular over suggestions that he obstructed justice by firing Comey (information that has likely been bolstered by Don McGahn’s testimony to Robert Mueller); and calling for the heads of several folks.


What’s going on? I don’t think it’s the news report, based on a taped Michael Cohen conversation, that Trump tried to buy up all the stories the National Enquirer had on him dating back to the 1980s.

I think we’re about to hear some big news, perhaps pertaining to Trump’s obstruction. Why? Because the midterms are in November; the primary elections kick off in earnest next week; and perhaps Mueller wants to release something or indict someone before it gets to the point where he can be criticized for influencing the election. Based on what Trump is tweeting about, my guess is that it has something to do with the obstruction charges.

It’s gonna be a day. God save us, Kate Beckinsale.
