Donald Trump reeks of desperation these days, whether it’s trying to combat his historically low (and continuously plummeting) approval rating, trying to get his disastrous Trumpcare bill and racist travel ban passed, or trying to cover up his ties to Russia.
Trump is currently fighting tooth and nail to get himself out of the latter, and he’s just come up with a new ridiculous scheme to get himself cleared of his Russia scandal. Apparently, America’s delusional, unworthy POTUS believes he can just threaten special counsel Robert Mueller and all will be cleared. According to The New York Times:
“That may have been by design, according to a person who spoke to Mr. Trump on Tuesday. The president was pleased by the ambiguity of his position on Mr. Mueller, and thinks the possibility of being fired will focus the veteran prosecutor on delivering what the president desires most: a blanket public exoneration.”
It seems like Trump still thinks he’s on The Apprentice. Mueller, who is a former FBI Director, was actually on the chopping block with Trump a man who now fires people depending on how much of a threat they are to him. Just like Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey, Trump was considering getting rid of Mueller before his staff talked him out of it – and this is far from the last time we’ll see Trump try to fire the people who are closing in on him.
Once again, Trump’s pathetic attempts to save himself only incriminate him further. Trump knows he has no idea what he’s doing and that his Russia scandal is now far beyond his control. The only thing he can do now is prolong the inevitable, and make empty threats to those who could destroy him.
