After all Trump’s groveling before the fundamentalist hereditary dictatorship, Saudi Arabia, home to 15 of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 and sharing code-word protected Intel on the activities of ISIS with our Iran loving adversaries in Russia, there was a horror show of terrorism. Teen and preteen girls, attending an Ariana Grande concert were the selected target of a suicide bomber in Manchester England. Twenty-two are dead. Trump said, from now on he will call terrorists “Losers.” Whew, glad he has a plan!

Since Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) said the Trump administration was in a “downward spiral,” it’s looking more and more like a death spiral. Last night at exactly 6PM when we were signing off for the day, the news broke that Robert S. Mueller former head of the FBI and Comey’s predecessor had been appointed Special Counsel charged with investigating the Russia “thing” as Trump calls it. The cracks in the GOP are now visible.

The firing of FBI Director James Comey was a YUGE deal. The Lester Holt interview will prove to be Trump’s Kryptonite. Feeling the heat, Trump tweets that Comey better hope there are no “tapes” of their White House Dinner, while Comey tells those close to him he hopes there are. Either way, any tapes Trump may have made belong to the people and Trump now has to come clean. Either there are tapes that must be released or admit you tried to Intimidate a Witness in an open investigation.
