Just listened to part of Trump’s news conference while working out, or as much of it as I could stand. He sounds like the crazy uncle in the attic, or like Sally Fields asking why everybody doesn’t really like him. Sean Spicer looked like he was going to choke.
The press did, I think, get one really good nugget: Trump said categorically — or as categorically as he can through all the bloviating — that he has no business dealings with Russia, no Russian money [a direct contradiction to what his son Donald Jr. claimed about Russian money “pouring in”], and that neither he nor anyone connected with him other than Flynn had any conversations with anyone from Russia. So if the investigations in to Russian meddling reveal that any of those things are true, Trump will have been caught in an outright lie.
Nixon didn’t go down because of the crimes committed during Watergate; he went down because he lied.
I live in hope.
