Let's start with a given: Donald Trump is a despicable excuse for a human being. He's an inveterate liar, a racist, a misogynist, and a xenophobe - and those are his good qualities. So, it is hard to be surprised that he surrounds himself with people of like ilk (I've posted on this many times). What is amazing, however, is how vitriolic his former sycophants become. They are, of course, justified, because Trump tends to disparage (again, being polite here) the formerly "best" people that are no longer toadies.

But... so many of them HAVE TAPES! Omarosa's latest tapes are just the latest tranche. Before that it was Michael Cohen. Comey only made notes! I won't be surprised to learn that Manafort (or Gates) recorded conversations. Maybe Michael Flynn? Or his son? Giuliani?

What is difficult, however, is giving credence to any Trump cronies in the absence of recordings. Sean Spicer lied incessantly, as does Sarah Sanders. Omarosa was a notorious fabricator. Giuliani can't stop himself any more than Trump. Don Junior, Kushner, Cohen, Kellyann Conway, John Kelly - all proven prevaricators. But, when they escape... watch out Trump! They probably have evidence. New tape shows Trump campaign aides discussing possibility of N-word tape

A pack of jackals: No surprise when they turn on a wounded pack member, and eat it. I wouldn't expect anything else. Soon, most Congressional Republicans will do the same for Trump. I'd say maybe on November 7.
