This is a very good analysis of why Trump is going to do very badly every time some issue goes to court:


Trump Cant Win His Battle Against the Judges

Quote:
But when the president takes the posture, time and again, that his words and orders have meanings that are fluid and mutable and known only to himself, it is a surefire way for him to continue to lose in court. Trump and his advisers have long smugly intoned that the media, the public, and Congress must learn to take his words seriously but not literally. Sadly for him, the courts have no choice but take his words literally. There is, literally, no other option.


I particularly liked the remark about the orange crayon...

It is suicidal for t-Rump, but that is exactly what pathological narcissists do when confronted/cornered! They lash out no matter what the consequences. T-Rump is not thought oriented, it is all about reacting to real or purrcived threat, and this threat is ever more real every day.

Special prosecutor is now assured! Chucky Todd is spinning that T-rump was canned because of his loss of credibility, rather than because he got to close. Screw Chucky Todd F@#$%^ apologist.

Sessions approved this, according to news, but, and isnt it a very big butt, that Sessions was supposed to be recused from all T-rump related Russian material.

Now the WH is blaming it on the botched Hillary email matter!
Tell the big one and tell it to any moron who will listen to this crap.
You can smell their desperation!

I feel sorry for the transient pressidunt, since as apposed to Nixon, who was a heavy drinker, T-rump is a teetotaler for now!

There are two obvious candidates: Rep. Trey Gowdy (GOP SC) and Rep. Darrell Issa (GOP CA). No one has more experience investigating the criminal malfeasance of the Clintons and Obama than these two courageous defenders of Freedom, Justice and the American Way.

After all, aside from Radical Islamic Terrorism and Illegal Immigration, what else should the FBI concentrate on than the danger posed by the conspiracy of Elite, Progressive, Liberals to destroy America and turn it into an Almighty-less, socialist hellhole for everyone?

(We all understand that the investigations into this conspiracy have been on-going for 40 years without concrete results. But that just goes to prove how complex, pervasive and disciplined the conspiracy actually is.)

Republican theology seems to be steeped in this moronic idea that they create their own reality. You would think when passenger jets come crashing into their rosy little fantasy, they would figure out that reality exists and you can't just hold your breath and wish it away. It's 16 years later and they are STILL doing it!


It's even simpler than that. Just as thieves are certain that everyone is a thief, lying, partisan hacks are certain that everyone is a lying, partisan hack.
