Watch Trump’s “press conference” today, if you can stomach it.
From the New York Times:
“Over the objections of some top advisers who wanted to steer him away from confrontation, Mr. Trump demanded to face the media, determined to reject the narrative that his administration is sinking into chaos, scandal and incompetence.”
How’s that working?
Watch that press conference and see if you think he was able to reject that narrative, or if he in fact confirmed it beyond any reasonable doubt.
The man can not put together a coherent thought at a 1st grade level.
He’s paranoid. He’s egomaniacal. He’s fucking insane.
Watch that press conference and tell me if you can’t see Humphrey Bogart, sweating on the witness stand, pulling those ball bearings out of his pocket and rolling them around in his hand, all the time getting crazier and more bizarre in his rantings about his disloyal crew, how they stole the strawberry ice cream from behind his back, how they called him “Old Yellow Stain,” how they were very disloyal to him…
Only two differences here:
First, Captain Queeg comes to realize that he’s been baited into going off the deep end and displaying his mental illness for all to see. Trump will never do that.
Secondly, our “Old Yellow Stain” wears his on his head and thinks it makes him look “mah-valous!“
