Is this what Trump eats for Thanksgiving while the grown-ups are eating turkey and dressing? Who fucking knows.

Wonder what Donald Trump has been up to this weekend? Well, it appears he has finally learned how to thread tweets! They are completely unrelated tweets, and thus should not be threaded, but hey, PROGRESS:

Starting fights with black people, yelling at Jeff Flake, using unnecessary quotation marks, crying like a little fuckbaby because people aren’t respecting him as god-emperor … totally normal behavior.

MEANWHILE ROBERT MUELLER! Let’s see what the special counsel has been up to the past couple of days:

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team investigating whether President Donald Trump sought to obstruct a federal inquiry into connections between his presidential campaign and Russian operatives has now directed the Justice Department to turn over a broad array of documents, ABC News has learned.

In particular, Mueller’s investigators are keen to obtain emails related to the firing of FBI Director James Comey and the earlier decision of Attorney General Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from the entire matter, according to a source who has not seen the specific request but was told about it.

Know how Donald Trump likes to say all the time that he knows for sure he is not under investigation? Donald Trump is under investigation. That is a fact, just like we can now unequivocally say, “The Trump Campaign colluded with Russia.”

We don’t know all the things Trump is being investigated for, but he’s definitely absolutely certainly being investigated for obstruction of justice, as regards the Comey firing and his role in releasing a statement full of DARNED FIBS about his upside-down-faced son Junior’s meetings with the Russians. We learned recently that Mueller had interviewed particularly racist hemorrhoid Stephen Miller. He wrote the original “10 things I hate about James Comey” letter for Trump that White House Counsel Don McGahn roundly rejected. Mueller is about to spend some quality time with Hope Hicks, who has been there for literally every (alleged) crime Trump has committed, including the Comey firing and the drafting of the statement about Junior’s meeting.

Combine the Miller interviews, the Hope Hicks interview, and these Justice Department requests, and we agree with Business Insider’s conclusion that the obstruction of justice part of the investigation is probably almost done, at least as regards the Comey firing. This makes sense, since any idiot can see Trump committed obstruction of justice, just based on his public statement to Lester Holt that he fired Comey because of Russia and his millions of tweets about Comey.

Does that mean Mueller’s Russia investigation is almost done? HAHAHAHAHA, you are as naive as a common Trump lawyer.

The Washington Post has one of its fun palace intrigue pieces about what a Grumpy Gloria everybody in the White House is right now over the Russia investigation, and it reminds us Trump lawyer Ty Cobb is still saying the investigation is almost over. Apparently some of the West Wing staffers are dumb enough to believe him, too, including known dumb idiot Donald Trump, president of America:

The president himself, however, has warmed to Cobb’s optimistic message on Mueller’s probe. Cobb had initially said he hoped the focus on the White House would conclude by Thanksgiving, but adjusted the timeline slightly in an interview last week, saying he remains optimistic that it will wrap up by the end of the year, if not shortly thereafter.

LOL Ty Cobb, just keep changing the schedule and telling him “probably tomorrow.” It’s a good strategy to keep him from literally ‘sploding.

Here is a more realistic view:

… [L]egal experts and private defense lawyers monitoring the case believe that Mueller’s investigation … is still in its early stages.

They expect that the prosecutors have considerable investigative work still to do, and they predict more campaign officials, among others, will face charges. They expect the probe to extend deep into 2018 and possibly longer.

Maybe Trump and some West Wing staffers are just confused. They see Mueller interviewing inner circle people like Miller and Hicks and think, “Oh that must mean the end is in sight.” Yeah, the easiest part of the investigation is just ’bout done, as we explained above.

Oh well, we hope Trump and his staff all have a nice Thanksgiving, unless Robert Mueller wants to go ahead and put them all in jail, which would be OK with us too.

    People on the inside of the investigation have even more ominous news: “Witnesses questioned by Mueller’s team warn that investigators are asking about other foreign contacts and meetings that have not yet become public, and to expect a series of new revelations.”

    A series of new revelations. That’s bad.

    A source close to the administration tells the Post that Mueller is running “a classic Gambino-style roll-up” that “will reach everyone in this administration.” When you read histories of the more successful presidential administrations in American history, a phrase you don’t usually come across is “Gambino-style roll-up.”

      However, in the face of this mounting evidence and the warnings of some allies, Trump has remained — by Trump’s standards — fairly calm. Obviously, by the standards of a normal president, he is acting like a complete lunatic. But given Trump’s patterns of spewing indiscriminate rage and abuse and lashing out at his enemies in wildly counterproductive fashion, he has conducted himself with notable restraint. Despite his barely concealed impulses, Trump has refrained from mass pardons or attempting to fire Mueller.

      Denial is a hell of a drug, isn’t it?

      • C4TWOMAN

    Recent investigations into the Trump real estate empire show that [Ivanka] had been involved in the company’s most suspicious dealings with shady oligarchs and mobbed-up money launderers. If Donald Trump is in the crosshairs of federal investigators for nefarious financial transactions with disreputable characters, his daughter will likely be caught in that same net. …

    When you look into the rest of Ivanka Trump’s history in business, the story repeats itself over and over again. The company has licensed the Trump name in places known for networks of money launderers.

    No doubt they’re going after any one of the dozens of money laundering crimes he doubtlessly committed. But I hope they really get him on the pee hooker thing. It’s such a minor issue, but it’d show definitively that he lies. About everything. All the time. Because he can.

    • C4TWOMAN

      I’m of the belief the Pee Hoor thing isn’t literal, but a code for something equal bad or worse: like evidence he boinked an under aged hooker, whether he knew it or not.
      That said, Putin, watching the Roy Moore fiasco, has got to be worrying whether anything he’s blackmailing Trump with would actually work….

    On Sunday, the Fort Bend, Texas, woman who went from headlines to handcuffs, due to the attention brought about by her “F— Trump” bumper sticker, shared a photo of a new decal she’d placed on her truck that takes aim at her local sheriff.

    Now to the very right of Karen Fonseca’s “F— Trump and f–k you for voting for him” sticker on the back window of her husband’s white truck is the slightly smaller message, “F— Troy Nehls and f–k you for voting for him,” KHOU reports.

    And I thought “toast” was only in quotation marks at ironic hipster breakfast joints.

    • Indeniable Ron

  • Rebel Scum with permit

    Trump has almost certainly told Hicks and Miller to lie to Mueller under oath, and not cooperate, because they will be pardoned no matter what. Will they believe him?

    • BadKitty904

      Depends on how stupid they are. So, yes, they will.

        Supposedly they have top shelf attorneys. If Trump is paying for them, will they be looking out for their clients’ best interests, or Trump’s?
        Maybe that’s why he decided to pay for their attorneys.

      • Major_Major_Major

        Technically, stuffing is dressing that has been shoved up the birds butt.

        • Lily412

          Never knew that!

      • kareemachan

        To me, stuffing is with bread, butter, onions, herbs, maybe oysters, shrooms, etc.

        Dressing (the way my SO likes it) is with ground beef, sausage, mashed potatoes, herbs, etc.

        • MynameisBlarney

          Both of those are unlike any type of dressing or stuffing I’ve ever had.
          *ETA*
          Growing up in East Bumfuck, NC. The stuffing/dressing consisted of cornbread, celery, onions, chicken or turkey stock, a bit of bacon, various herbs and spices and that was about it IIRC.

        • Juan de Fuca

          That’s similar to how my mom learned to make it from a friend after we moved to N.C. She still serves it up the same way. It’s not my cup of tea but some people in the south love it, and good on ’em. I agree with how they do BBQ, so it all works out.

        • Dept. of Space Tacos

          you were good…up to the oyster part.
          ; p

      • Lily412

        Just about. In my neck of the woods, stuffing is the chunky stuff and dressing is the casserole style stuff. I usually don’t actually eat dressing because it’s nearly always made with animal broth. When I make stuffing, I use veggie broth.

    • Juan de Fuca

      We usually stuff our Turkey with a mirepoix while it’s cooking but not because we’re fancy. We throw the mirepoix out after the bird’s done and serve Stovetop stuffing on the side. From the box.

      • Lily412

        I’ve never eaten the kind that was actually in the cavity of the turkey. It does seem very weird. My assumption is that they stuff the turkey full of broth-y bread chunks so that the evaporating moisture goes up through the turkey and keeps it moist during cooking.

        i always wanted to live in a post-nuclear apocalypse.

        Also too – this has to be THE most fucking ridiculous, grating, dumbass, corporate fellating, cringe-inducing, wannabe end-times survivor product review evah:

        This is the motorcycle you need to escape the apocalypse

        The sky burned and the oceans turned black. Now it’s overcast almost every day. I survived, probably because I was wearing an armadillo vest that protected me from all harm. Plus, I had a mohawk on my helmet, which killed all of the brain cells that control common sense but left me with 20/15 vision.

        And all I need is a motorcycle. Something faster than a zombie can run (just in case) and loud enough to scare away the mutant mackerel that are making their way up from the toxic beaches and into the ruins of the city. I need knobby tires for rubble, lots of fuel, and preferably no fenders in case I meet a fair maiden who has also survived—I don’t want her to think I’m a dweeb.

        I kick down the door of Beach Moto on the west side of Los Angeles and wait for the dust to settle. Through the smell of expensive leather, I see what I’m looking for under a pile of broken HVAC vents: the Rev’It 95. Nine hundred forty-two cubic centimeters of Austrian-made volume, in two cylinders splayed at 75 degrees, with a custom exhaust that looks like it was made to start an avalanche or stop a conversation. It’s got a smartphone for a dash, but one of the vents must have smashed it.
        On the left side of the KTM 950 mill, I see the cherry on top: auxiliary chains running up from the countershaft sprocket, under the fuel tank, to just behind the steering head. A Christini two-wheel-drive system uses two counter-rotating shafts that drive the front wheel when the rear starts to spin. Perfect for piles of rebar and wreckage, I think. I pick it up off its side, surprised to feel only the weight of a jacked-up FZ-07. A tall 400 pounds.

    Maybe Trump and some West Wing staffers are just confused. They see Mueller interviewing inner circle people like Miller and Hicks and think, “Oh that must mean the end is in sight.”

    What I’ve learnt from his supporters’ defence of him following the Mannafort arrest is that they think in extremely compartmentalised ways. Mannafort and Gates being arrested meant Trump was fine because he wasn’t arrested, so he was obviously not guilty or even suspected of anything. If Miller and Hicks get taken for questioning, if Kushner, Don Jr and Mike Pence get taken in for questioning, and if any of them get arrested the argument will be the same- Trump has nothing to worry about because he personally has not yet been arrested.

    I wonder if that thinking is shared by the administration too.

    This makes sense, since any idiot can see Trump committed obstruction of justice, just based on his public statement to Lester Holt that he fired Comey because of Russia and his millions of tweets about Comey.

    sadly, at least 62,979,879 idiots probably can’t/won’t see it.

    [ interesting point: Mueller’s salary may be the only money this administration* spends wisely ]

    • Punditator

      The problem with that silliness is that no one but leftwingers believe that firing Comey would stop an investigation. The only reason we have Mueller is because Comey broke the law. The only thing we have learned is how much the parties and lobbyists are involved with Russia. It needs to be stopped, but the same people that are up to their eyeballs in Russian influence are the same people that would have to make it illegal and for some reason, I just don’t think that is going to happen.

      • jesterpunk

        Trump did.

        https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/19/us/politics/trump-russia-comey.html

        President Trump told Russian officials in the Oval Office this month that firing the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, had relieved “great pressure” on him, according to a document summarizing the meeting.

        “I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Mr. Trump said, according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”

        Mr. Trump added, “I’m not under investigation.”

        “The problem with that silliness is that no one but leftwingers believe that firing Comey would stop an investigation. ” Huh? You consider President Trump to be a “leftwinger?” You claim Mr. Comey “broke the law.” How? Doing his job?

    Starting fights with black people, yelling at Jeff Flake, using unnecessary quotation marks, crying like a little fuckbaby because people aren’t respecting him as god-emperor … totally normal behavior.

    Hell, this has become normal. If he DIDN’T do this crap we would think it was totally weird. Just imagine if he stopped the incessant whining/bragging and started writing and speaking in coherent sentences. We would all be saying, “Who replaced Trump???”

    re: the basketball boys released from China. Trump couldn’t possibly have “left them in China”. Xi went to all that work to stage having some “hostages” to give back to the US, he’s not going to let it go to waste. They’d have come home if Xi had to charter a jet on his own.

    This huge ego stroke was all set up, “Oh wise and tough Mr. President, you have used your powers of negotiation and persuasion to get us to return these boys that we captured for the sole purpose of giving back.” Then basketball dad goes and ruins it and Trump’s ego doesn’t get the tongue bath and he is PISSED.

  • Lefty Wright

    My wish for Thanksgiving is that rumors start circulating Wednesday about at least two more indictments being presented early next week. That will give the Trump brigade something to do over the holiday weekend, like consult with their attorneys.

    • Punditator

      The first 2 had nothing to do with Trump and led Mueller to the Dems. I don’t really see how this is working out like you dreamed it would. In the end, this will finish like Plamegate and the Hillary emails did. Everyone will cheer their team and we will suck just as much as we did before it started.

      • Keith Taylor

        Actually, I think that is possible. On the other hand … the Trump supporters who keep saying that Mueller should pack it in because if there was anything to the Russia hooraw he’d have discovered it by now, and there is nothing and never will be anything, may have forgotten that the Watergate investigation was two years and small change from the break-in to Nixon’s resignation in disgrace. This even though the Watergate Hotel burglars had been caught in the act on the night of the crime. Mueller and his team are fully aware that they had better get everything right.
        Calling them a bunch of hacks may be very comforting to people who still want to see Donald Trump as the greatest thing this side of the Second Coming, but I’m not sure those people have checked who Mueller’s team ARE and what their track record is.

        • Punditator

          Watergate was a crime that was being investigated. This is an investigation looking for a crime. Huge difference. This isn’t how our system is supposed to work, but it seems that no one cares about that anymore.

          • Jesse

            The firing of James Comey to stop an investigation is a crime, its called obstruction of justice. The president has already admitted that was why he did it, so there’s no question about the crime occurring.

          • Keith Taylor

            I’d agree with that. And while I’m no lawyer, or even a U.S. citizen, I contend it is now well established that Russia made serious efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election in Donald Trump’s favour. If members of the President’s campaign team and even of his family, conspired with Russian hackers taking their orders from Putin to bring it about, that would be further crime, and serious crime. (Actually there doesn’t seem to be much of an “if” left in that region either.) The questions then become, who knew, when did they know, how much did they know, to what extent were they conspiring, and how active were they in doing it?
            I reckon investigation is fully justified.
            Mueller and the rest don’t seem like amateurs who’d waste their time on a lost cause, partisan or not.

        Jared and Trump Jr are Dems? Wait I bet you think Pizzagate is real too don’t you?

      • TundraGrifter

        The first indictment was George Papadopoulos. Are you writing he had nothing to do with the Presidential Campaign of Donald J. Trump? And there isn’t an excellent chance he was wearing a wire between the time he was arrested (the day after the FBI raided the home of Paul Manafort, former chair of the Trump Presidential Campaign) and the time that arrest was made public (when Mr. Manafort and his partner were indicted)?

        • Punditator

          Nitpicking. Not really a way to win. Good old George wore a wire after he had any contact with the campaign. Trump was already President. Manafort’s supposed crimes were from 2010 and he will either beat them in court or on appeal. An indictment really doesn’t mean anything as only the government gets to present evidence. This is going nowhere. Don’t get your hopes up.

          • TundraGrifter

            “Nitpicking?” So you weren’t really writing about “the first indictment” but that’s somehow my fault? There was no “campaign” after Papadopoulos was arrested, so your “point” doesn’t make sense. If you don’t think the people in the amateur Trump Administration talk about this every hour of every day, you are clueless. As for Manafort’s indictment, the charges carry into 2017. Is that also “nitpicking?” For some reason you state as a fact he will beat those charges. I very much doubt it. This isn’t Mr. Mueller’s first rodeo. As for an indictment not really meaning anything, that silly statement reminds me of what a friend said several years ago about collecting some money he was owed. I pointed out you can’t get blood from a turnip and he responded “You can fuck it up trying.”

            Here is where we are. Right now, left wingers are arguing for media consolidation because they think Trump is against it. Right now, right wingers are for another crappy “infrastructure” bill because they think Trump is for it. People have no opinions that are their own at this point.

          • Jesse

            No, punditater, left wingers are not for media consolidation. That is a stupidly easy thing for you to check and you still got it wrong. Also, there is no infrastructure bill so there’s nothing that could be judged to be ‘crappy.’

  • Mehmeisterjr

    Ty Cobb, despite his blabby-in-public tendencies that should cost him his license to practice, may be doing us a favor by so blatantly representing his client ineptly. Unless that is exactly what he is setting up for appeal.

    If so, that line of argument should fail because, let’s face it, Ty may be guilty of being ineffective counsel but Trump is far more guilty of being ineffective client.

    I think it’s great that Trump’s kindly and incompetent lawyer is there to soothe Trump’s anxieties with fairy tales like, “You’ll be exonerated by Christmas at the latest!”. Happy he’s doing that, distracting Trump from seething about Mueller, assuaging. I want to think it’s a deft ninja move, like maybe the guy really wants to save our Republic, and he’s making more time for Mueller to work. But I suspect Trump’s lawyer is really dumb and doesn’t know how to use the internet, he’s high on happy pills and a simple fellow to boot, and he really does think Trump’s treason problems will disappear. Egad. But he’s better than some rightwing ballbreaker lawyer. Which, you’d think other Republicans would have advised Trump to get a killer badass shark lawyer. They haven’t he’s sticking with this uncomplicated earnest guy. Which shows that even they wouldn’t mind seeing Trump gone.

    Seth Abramson had a long, enlightening Twitter thread about this very thing. A complicating factor has been the extent to which this boob brigade, in their ongoing ineptitude, has added to the case by seemingly constantly trying to cover their tracks; instead they are obstructing justice some more, huzzah! Also, wow, a zillion overseas actors to whom Mueller’s team cannot extend their reach. But they do have to try, apparently. Unbelievable the truly historic waters in which we now are.
