Over on Crooks and Liars, Nicole Belle has a column quoting The Trumpster. She wonders if he fears that yet another set of indictments will soon descend on him.
That may be, she speculates, why The Trumpster is tweeting up yet another storm about the probe into the possibility of his collusion with Russia. For example, there's this piece of sanctimonious claptrap:
Who’s going to give back the young and beautiful lives (and others) that have been devastated and destroyed by the phony Russia Collusion Witch Hunt? They journeyed down to Washington, D.C., with stars in their eyes and wanting to help our nation...They went back home in tatters!
However, I have a different theory. I think The Trumpster is thought-projecting into the future, and that those young and beautiful lives are a lot closer to home than poor Hope Hicks. Why?
To the best of my knowledge, Trump's compassion has never extended much beyond the length of his reputedly short, uh, fingers. So I would go looking for the starry-eyed ragamuffins in and near one of the Trump towers.
Specifically I'm thinking Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, and the original candidate for going home in tatters — or maybe going to someplace else. That would be Donald J. Trump himself.
