Trump Horror, Day 26: Another Radical Reversal on Flynn

In today's episode of our dangerously erratic and unhinged Narcissist in Chief, Donald Trump stages yet another bizarre reversal.

Yesterday, his people (including the always mendacious Kellyanne Conway) were all over the media saying that Trump had "lost confidence" in Michael Flynn, was upset that Flynn had lied to VP Mike Pence about his contacts with Russia (I don't believe Pence didn't know, but we'll let that go for now), and had asked Flynn to resign.

Today Trump gave a short press conference and completely contradicted the talking points his own representatives were issuing, saying Flynn is "a wonderful man" who was "treated very very unfairly by the fake media."

Trump also contradicted his own past views on leaks, saying the intelligence community was deliberately leaking information to "cover up for a terrible loss the Democrats had under Hillary Clinton." Yes, this is the same guy who said, "I love Wikileaks!"

And before this press conference he got on Twitter with unsecure Android phone again and blasted out a series of tweets attacking the media and the US intelligence community -- and praising "Fox & Friends."

The fake news media is going crazy with their conspiracy theories and blind hatred. @MSNBC & @CNN are unwatchable. @foxandfriends is great!

This Russian connection non-sense is merely an attempt to cover-up the many mistakes made in Hillary Clinton's losing campaign.

Information is being illegally given to the failing @nytimes & @washingtonpost by the intelligence community (NSA and FBI?).Just like Russia

The real scandal here is that classified information is illegally given out by "intelligence" like candy. Very un-American!

None of that makes any sense, of course. Our government is in the hands of an unstable autocrat who's getting more paranoid by the day as his house of cards begins to fall apart.
