Another day of Bigly Meltdown Watch 2018. Politico reports Trump’s mental state as “panicked,” for good reason. I describe Trump’s mental state as “vegetative, petty, childlike, and grossly stupid.” I’m still feeling like we’re not going to exit this week without someone at the Department of Justice getting fired. Will it be Jeff Sessions, the KKKeebler Elf who is currently hiding under a rug? Will it be Rod Rosenstein’s head on the chopping block, which is what Steve Bannon is apparently recommending? Or will it be Certified Zaddy Bobby Mueller? Here’s a fresh new tweet:
If I wanted to fire Robert Mueller in December, as reported by the Failing New York Times, I would have fired him. Just more Fake News from a biased newspaper!

Horsesh-t. But that does bring me to a fundamental question I keep asking: why NOT fire Jeff Sessions? Trump hates Sessions and Sessions hates his life at Attorney General. Why not fire him?
Meanwhile, Ronan Farrow dropped this story about Michael Cohen working with the National Enquirer on another “catch and kill” story:
I reveal another secret election-season payment from the National Enquirer to bury an unflattering, wild claim about Trump. The investigation that prompted the Enquirer’s parent company to start opening up about a closely held secret overnight: https://t.co/iwy2lbaCpz

The gist of the story is that the Enquirer paid a former Trump Tower doorman $30,000 for the exclusive rights to a story, then the Enquirer killed the story. The story? The doorman claimed he’d heard a rumor that Trump “had fathered an illegitimate child with an employee at Trump World Tower, a skyscraper he owns near the United Nations.” Everyone involved is denying the story except for the doorman, but it is clear that the Enquirer paid the guy $30,000 and that Michael Cohen was involved in some sort of way. Just think: there could be another Ivanka or Tiffany or Eric Trump out there. *shiver*
