In case you were wondering just how far into complete fascist insanity President Trump has now fallen, his interview with The New York Times on Thursday suggests he’s heading into Mussolini territory.
Trump began by using the old Richard Nixon argument that investigations of a president are bad for the country:
“Well, I think it’s bad for the country. The only thing that bothers me about timing, I think it’s a very bad thing for the country. Because it makes the country look bad, it makes the country look very bad, and it puts the country in a very bad position. So the sooner it’s worked out, the better it is for the country.”
The president also raised eyebrows with this proclamation of what he could do regarding the Mueller investigation and Department of Justice, which oversees the Russia probe:
“What I’ve done is, I have absolute right to do what I want to do with the Justice Department. But for purposes of hopefully thinking I’m going to be treated fairly, I’ve stayed uninvolved with this particular matter.”
While he was at it, Trump also resorted to the childish game of “I know I am, but what are you?” telling the Times:
“Let’s just say — I think that Bob Mueller will be fair, and everybody knows that there was no collusion. I saw Dianne Feinstein the other day on television saying there is no collusion. She’s the head of the committee. The Republicans, in terms of the House committees, they come out, they’re so angry because there is no collusion. So, I actually think that it’s turning out — I actually think it’s turning to the Democrats because there was collusion on behalf of the Democrats. There was collusion with the Russians and the Democrats. A lot of collusion.”
Notice how many times he said the word “collusion” in that one paragraph? Sounds more than a tad fishy, doesn’t it? And it’s a classic strategy of pathological liars to try and accuse others of their own faults and foibles. In other words, Trump is guilty as hell, he knows it, and he plans to go down like a whiny little baby. No surprise there.
