Too Stupid to Live: Trump Paniced at Mueller Comments Because He Never Read Report (or one page bullet point ‘synopsis’)

The NYT’s White House correspondent told CNN she thinks the president only learned what’s actually in the damning 448-page report when he heard Mueller say it on television.

“If we had had confidence the president clearly did not commit a crime we would have said so,” Mueller said as he discussed the report citing 10 indictable felonies committed by Trump.

Maggie Haberman, The New York Times’ White House correspondent, posited Friday morning that President Donald Trump was especially angered this week by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s press conference for one reason: He has never read the report.

In what CNN’s New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota jokingly called an “armchair analysis segment,” she asked Haberman why she thought Trump on Thursday “seemed more irritated” following the public statement, in which Mueller confirmed on live television that he didn’t charge the president with any crimes because of Department of Justice policy—not because of the president’s innocence.

“You know, there are some days he comes out and he’s sort of playing and sparring with the press,” said Camerota. “Yesterday, he seemed more irritated about some of the—I mean, Mueller didn’t say anything that dramatic that wasn’t in the report, but somehow it seemed to have angered the president.”

Haberman responded, “You think the president has read the report? Because I do not.”

“I think that when he hears Mueller say that on TV—again, him interpreting everything through this screen that is in front of him, I think that that had much more resonance than almost anything else that has happened,” Haberman added.

  1. Please tell me of one politician in our federal system that actually reads any legislation of formal reports. That is what they hire staff/advisors for, to report back their findings according to their agenda. Think about how many laws are passed that are actually written by lobbyists who piss in the legislator’s ears in explanation of its content. Why should we expect anything different from our joke of a president? For the life of me, I cannot see why impeachment would be bad for our country other than to make the voters feel empowered and make massive changes at the next election. To not impeach is a detriment to our country and it only leads us further down the hole of isolationism on the world’s stage. Let your congressmen know of your feelings be they for or against impeachment. It is only then will they act if they feel pressured to perhaps find another job at the end of their term.
