2018 Breaks Open With a New Book That Shatters the Trump Bubble

Politics • Views: 27,219

This excerpt from Michael Wolff’s forthcoming book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, lays out the appalling ignorance and incompetence of Donald Trump like nothing has before.

If you read only one thing today: Donald Trump Didn’t Want to Be President.

Most presidential candidates spend their entire careers, if not their lives from adolescence, preparing for the role. They rise up the ladder of elected offices, perfect a public face, and prepare themselves to win and to govern. The Trump calculation, quite a conscious one, was different. The candidate and his top lieutenants believed they could get all the benefits of almost becoming president without having to change their behavior or their worldview one whit. Almost everybody on the Trump team, in fact, came with the kind of messy conflicts bound to bite a president once he was in office. Michael Flynn, the retired general who served as Trump’s opening act at campaign rallies, had been told by his friends that it had not been a good idea to take $45,000 from the Russians for a speech. “Well, it would only be a problem if we won,” ­Flynn assured them.

Not only did Trump disregard the potential conflicts of his own business deals and real-estate holdings, he audaciously refused to release his tax returns. Why should he? Once he lost, Trump would be both insanely famous and a martyr to Crooked Hillary. His daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared would be international celebrities. Steve Bannon would become the de facto head of the tea-party movement. Kellyanne Conway would be a cable-news star. Melania Trump, who had been assured by her husband that he wouldn’t become president, could return to inconspicuously lunching. Losing would work out for everybody. Losing was winning.

Shortly after 8 p.m. on Election Night, when the unexpected trend — Trump might actually win — seemed confirmed, Don Jr. told a friend that his father, or DJT, as he calls him, looked as if he had seen a ghost. Melania was in tears—and not of joy.

There was, in the space of little more than an hour, in Steve Bannon’s not unamused observation, a befuddled Trump morphing into a disbelieving Trump and then into a horrified Trump. But still to come was the final transformation: Suddenly, Donald Trump became a man who believed that he deserved to be, and was wholly capable of being, the president of the United States.

One of the stunning revelations in the book is this statement from Breitbart Grand Dragon Steve Bannon:

“The three senior guys in the campaign thought it was a good idea to meet with a foreign government inside Trump Tower in the conference room on the 25th floor—with no lawyers. They didn’t have any lawyers,” Bannon said, per Wolff. “Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad shit, and I happen to think it’s all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately.”

Trump has already lashed out in response, of course:

he / they were not some brilliant campaigners who stunningly navigated the system where no one else could have. demonstrating some arcane and hidden logic and talent - some expertise in campaigning

no, the campaign was not some brilliant secret strategy where they had private info no one had that they knew all along they were going to win

they were totally unprepared and completely blindsided. stunned.

and a year later are still clueless

blueraven  Jan 3, 2018 • 11:54:46am

So now that this book is being published will the WR media treat it as Gospel like they did Clinton Cash, or for that matter, how about the NYT or WaPo? (I subscribe to both, so no bias against but…this was fucked up)

In April 2015, Politico reported that the “New York Times, The Washington Post and Fox News have made exclusive agreements with a conservative author for early access to his opposition research on Hillary Clinton, a move that has confounded members of the Clinton campaign and some reporters.”

As ThinkProgress detailed last year, Clinton Cash cited a fake press release and relied on circumstantial evidence to make a case that the Clinton State Department traded favors for donations to the Clinton Foundation and speaking fees for Bill Clinton. Other outlets highlighted a number of additional errors in the book ranging from Schweizer falsely inflating Bill Clinton’s speaking fees to overstating the power then-Secretary Hillary Clinton had to prevent Russia from buying a company with uranium mining operations in the United States. Margaret Sullivan, then the public editor of the Times, questioned her paper’s arrangement with GAI in a April 2015 blog post, writing that even though there was no financial arrangement with Schweizer, “I still don’t like the way it looked.”

Nonetheless, in August, the Times reported that the FBI used the book as the basis of an investigation into the Clinton Foundation that didn’t go anywhere.

Two words for you. Prosecutorial immunity.

If they were to beat the criminal charges on the basis of fruit of the poisonous tree, maybe, just maybe they’d have a claim. But there’s no evidence that they have much of a defense, which means, they are rightfully and properly fucked.

They’re hating on Steve Bannon. On Bannon’s site.

re: #119 Kragar

As long as there is reasonable suspicion, they can look into it. Now, stopping a guy for going 70 in a 50 and telling him to open his truck because “I fucking said so” is bullshit. But “I smell marijuana and/or alcohol” or “I see a crack pipe” that’s a bit different. (though I suspect the “I smelled something” is more often bullshit because there’s no real counter to it)

Anybody remember that episode of the “Justice League” cartoon where Lex Luthor tries to form an “Injustice League”, but it falls apart due to bickering, greed and everyone having their own agendas? The Bannon/Trump feud reminds me of that.

It is strange to see the amount of groveling and ass-licking Mooch is doing. I guess he really liked his time under the bright lights? Even though it came with universal laughter, mockery, condemnation?

There’s apparently a very deep streak of masochism with everyone who works with Trump.

You signed up. You took the suitcase full of panda meat. You try and leave, we put you on an island resort in Wales permanently.

Also, I can’t help it if current day public figures have crossed below the line of cunning and some semblance of self-justifying philosophy that apt similes are getting harder to mine. An 80s cartoon that was basically product placement seems a pretty apt match.

Everybody in this administration Falstaff, Ancient Pistol, or some fanfiction mpreg offspring of Falstaff and Ancient Pistol.

If you expand to the House and Senate…it’s some ratio of Antonio from Merchant of Venice, and Malvollio from Much Ado. With the occasional Dogpatch.
