6 Things Trump Does Not Understand About His Job article from AlterNet. –
Our dimwitted dumbass of a President forgets he’s not the dictator he longs to be:
“Mistaking the presidency for a personal business has delivered the Trump White House into failure.
For President Trump’s admirers, his disregard for the traditional ways of Washington is just his way of getting things done. “To the new president, Washington niceties are cobwebs on a summer porch, distracting, inconvenient, in the way of his higher purposes,” writes Robert Charles on Town Hall.
But in the past week, Trump’s “higher purposes” have been all but eclipsed, by a week of low deeds that mired his already embattled presidency in a swamp of dysfunction. He fired former ally James Comey as FBI director, all but admitted obstruction of justice by saying he acted to end the FBI investigation into his dealings with Russia, and then shared classified information with the Russian foreign minister. Along the way, he contradicted his own aides’ explanations of his actions, confirming that White House statements cannot be trusted.
All of a sudden, the cobwebs of Washington seem more like spiderwebs, and Trump resembles nothing so much as the fly who can’t extricate himself from its sticky strands…”

In Russia scandal, Trump looks out for Number One: himself article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. –
Given that is all he’s done since being ‘elected’ by a minority, no surprise there:
“Midway through Donald Trump’s White House press conference yesterday with Colombia’s Juan Manuel Santos, there was an exchange on the Russian scandal that offered an interesting peek into the American president’s thinking.
Q: Mr. President, I’d like to get your reaction to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s decision to appoint a special counsel to investigate the Russian interference in the campaign. Was this the right move, or is this part of a “witch hunt”?
TRUMP: Well, I respect the move, but the entire thing has been a witch hunt. And there is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign, but I can always speak for myself – and the Russians, zero.
The president’s mastery of English often falls short, and this was a rather dramatic example of Trump saying what he didn’t mean. I’m pretty sure he intended to say was that there was “no collusion between” him and Russia, but he can only “speak for” himself…”

TRUMP OR COMEY: WHO’S THE REAL “NUT JOB” HERE? article from The New Yorker. –
That’s a fair question…
“The first four months of the Trump Administration have generated many real headlines that could have appeared first in a satirical publication such as the Onion or The New Yorker’s own the Borowitz Report. But the headline that appeared on the Times’ Web site on Friday afternoon may have been the most bizarre yet: “Trump Told Russians that Firing ‘Nut Job’ Comey Eased Pressure from Investigation.”
The story that ran under the headline, by Matt Apuzzo, Maggie Haberman, and Matthew Rosenberg, was based on “notes taken from inside the Oval Office” during President Trump’s now notorious meeting, last week, with the two Sergeys—Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, and Kislyak, the Russian Ambassador to Washington. (In case your mind has snapped after the past few days of news meld, a quick reminder: that was the meeting during which Trump gave the men from the Kremlin classified information about an isis bomb threat.) Here is the second paragraph from the Times’ story:
“I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Mr. Trump said, according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”
Note, first, the dilemma presented to the Times’ headline writers. What bit of this quote should they prioritize?…”

It’s becoming increasingly clear that Jared Kushner is part of Trump’s Russia problem article from Vox. –
The miscreantics of Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner are causing all kinds of problems for our wannabe dictator:
“Jared Kushner: the young, pragmatic, hardheaded businessman out to modernize the US government and moderate the worst tendencies of his father-in-law — Donald Trump.
But what if, instead, Jared is not a panacea for the chaotic White House, but one of its biggest problems?
As the Trump administration’s been sent into a death spiral over the firing of FBI Director James Comey last week — a failed move to curtail the Justice Department investigation into contact between his campaign and the Russian government — Kushner hasn’t been the “adult in the room” urging caution and scrupulousness. To the contrary, he’s been urging aggression and retaliation.
And the White House’s reaction to the appointment of Robert Mueller as a special counsel in the Russia inquiry, including a possible attempt to use ethics rules to limit the scope of his investigation, shows that somebody in the White House is deeply worried about what might happen if Kushner were included in the probe…”

Donald Trump Knows Just How Bad the Russia Investigation Can Get article from The Daily Beast. –
As noted by the author, it’s all a mess – albeit one that was predictable – after the ‘election’ of an illiterate, needy and juvenile man:
“What does “consciousness of guilt” look like? How do you know it when you see it? President Donald Trump and his band of kakistocrats seem to be putting on a clinic.
Item: Donald Trump fires James Comey, the FBI director leading the investigation into his campaign’s possible collusion with Russia to influence the results of the 2016 election.
Then: Trump’s team denies that stifling the Russiagate investigation was the reason for the firing—and even finding a patsy in the very malleable deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein—only to have the cover story contradicted by Trump himself, as he blurted out the truth in an interview with NBC’s Lester Holt.
Next: the day after the Comey firing elicits an apparently unexpected backlash—well, unexpected inside the undecorated, echoey mansion inside Donald Trump’s head—the president boldly welcomes two key officials from the very country that interfered in our election, Russia, into the Oval Office for selfies and yucks…”
