Week 18 of The Presidential Apprentice closes with Trump jetting off to the Middle East and Europe, carrying the contagion of infantilism, inattention, low energy and dysfunction with him. (Jared & Ivanka are along for the ride, allegedly with special dispensation.)
We’re coming to grips with the Comey firing, the appointment of a special counsel, and what it all means. But first, Trump & team are spending their precious time plotting revenge: by accusing Obama of being the real leaker of intel to Russia! Got it? Good. Now, here’s what you need to read, in rough order of complexity, in order to discuss the scope of the investigation(s).
Lots of speculation about why Trump’s so loyal to Flynn, lately. But this is the topper! I hope!
One last entry for weekend reading: Time’s “Inside Russia’s Social Media War on America.”
