The Daily Donald 5/26/2017

Another week draws to a close. One keeps hearing of new investigations into Trump's Russian links and there is a growing sense of disquiet in the Trump regime over xDFBI Comey's public testimony next week. There is also news out now that Jared Kushner is the target of an FBI investigation.

As the sense of dread among Trump supporters grows, their minds will turn towards violence. We have seen Rep. Greg Gianforte channel those feelings of rage towards a reporter. This is a case of shooting the messenger. Rather than confront their own mistakes, the rageboys of the right want to punish the Press from embarrassing them. The fact that Greg Gianforte got elected says a great deal about the situation right now. It is likely IMHO that Greg's "success" will set the stage for Trump to conduct even more brutal attacks on the press. I will not be surprised if journalists are killed as Trump attempts to shore up his support base.

Trump himself appears to have been rattled by something specific. His behavior in  Europe was very strange. Short of shooting the NATO heads of state, there was nothing more he could have done to seem like a Russian agent. He physically shoved the PM of Montenegro, he distanced himself from Art.V of NATO which only the US has used so far to call NATO states to its aid after 9/11 and then he went around dissing Germany and threatening trade embargoes against German car manufacturers. This kind of over worship of RIS goals in Europe suggests that Donald Trump needs Putin more than Putin needs him.

Perhaps Donald needs the money to keep the GOP in line on the impeachment issue, but if he has to beg Putin for cash - that says Putin doesn't have to support Donald and he can choose to not pay. This in turn implies Putin has a replacement/spare that Donald suspects but can do nothing about. This also means that Donald Trump is paying the GOP for every second of his stay in the WH and that money is coming from RIS. So that begs the question how long can Putin afford this investment given his precarious financial situation? And is it a surprise that Secy Cohn is openly talking about taking off sanctions on RU?

The sudden departure of Rience Prebus and Steve Bannon from the Presidential entourage in Europe and KSA suggested something was up. Now we know that they were sent home to coordinate an aggressive media response to growing popularity of TrumpRussia stories. The return of these two WH staffers coincides with two main events.

1) The spurt of stories prior to their return of a sense of resignation inside the Trump WH. Staffers were quieting handing out their resumes, openly calling Trump an idiot and reaching out to lawyers for the legal struggles that were soon to come. Apparently Sean Spicer had been implicated in  a Trump inspired operation to  get the IC leadership to say that there was "no collusion between Trump and Russia" and I am guessing here that there is a reason Sean wasn't with the Trumps when they visited the Vatican.

2) A fissure that suddenly opened up between the liberal factions on Twitter. A feud had been brewing for a while now between liberal twitter posters loyal to posters like Louise Mensch, John Schindler, Claude Taylor and the twitter posters loyal to Seth Abrahamson, Malcolm Nance, The Jester, and so on. The dispute between the group appears to be primarily about who is the real voice of the resistance to Trump and they have reasons to distrust each other. The sudden fissure appears to have been triggered by the "discovery" of Louise Mensch's links to Milo Yiannopoulos. Milo himself allegedly tweeted that he had some kind of pact with Louise and a photo of Louise and Milo was RTed. While the existence of this strife is not particularly interesting, the sudden exacerbation is odd.That it lines up quite so well with the publicity about an investigation into Kushner and the return of both Bannon and Priebus is quite interesting.

The "Street Fighter" response that  Trump hopes to effect on containing the TrumpRussia news cycle is ultimately self defeating. In order to pay for this containment he has to borrow money from Russia. Unless he can pay off that money by making moves to end sanctions on Russia, Putin will have deep doubts about the viability of the Trump enterprise. Worst still, if he does make moves to end sanctions, he will deepen the troubles he faces on the TrumpRussia front and have to borrow more money which Putin will face doubts about loaning out.

It should be clear to all concerned (Trump and Putin) that the bubble has run its course. Apart from producing the customary rage in GOP voters, nothing more will come from this.

I now await the usual Friday evening disaster.
