Dimms/Media were going to complain and make unsubstantiated charges no matter when he fired Comey. They are attempting to neutralize last November’s election and Trump does not have the self control not to tweet conflicting messages on a daily basis. He and his surrogates should have let the memos recommending Comey’s firing stand along with Trump’s original explanation that he agreed with the AG/Asst AG recommendation. End of story, full stop.
Instead, Trump almost immediately begins responding and changing the original narrative and all hell breaks loose with predictably media raising all kinds of speculation. Now we have Trump talking about taped conversations as the Dimms raise the phony specter of Nixon/Watergate tapes. Everyday Trump does precisely that which provides an on-going narrative for media/Democrats. It’s crazy.
In the meantime, not a word about the good economic news, heath care bill, tax cuts/reform. Democrats and their handmaidens, media, are largely in control of the narrative being directed toward the public.
The daily press briefings are nothing more than an outgunned Spicer attempting to explain/defend Trump’s latest tweets to a room full of Democrats intent on grilling him about BS and printing speculation/innuendo backed by no evidence.
There may come a time when the public begins to get fatigued by all the BS swirling around this administration. Trump and his people had best get a handle on the messaging, which up to now, has been by far the worst I have ever seen.
I suggest Trump be fitted for a Hannibal Lecter face mask and that he be handcuffed in an effort to keep him focused on what he was sent to Washington to do.
The right message/policies, up to now the wrong messenger - IMO. Tact/political savvy is not everything, but it isn’t nothing either.
Finally, our Repub congress is disappointing, to say the least. Trump works furiously to act on his campaign promises and we witness absolutely no sense of urgency by the Repubs in congress. It would be helpful for these punks to get something done - if for no other reason than to change the narrative/focus coming out of Washington. Instead, these Repubs seem not to be on the same page and working a schedule of two weeks on, two weeks off.
No wonder Trump is frustrated and pissed. He’s pretty much on his own.
