Trump’s presidency has been a series of bad days strung together and the events over the past few days mark the worst stretch of days for him yet in his failing presidency.
Trump’s historically low approval rating, a pointless legislative agenda (which has only successfully given Americans the greatest tax scam of all time), a Russian scandal and investigation, and his “alleged” health problems are just a few of the dark clouds looming over his head.
Then this week happened…
1. The giant Nunes memo stunt backfired tremendously, causing even top Republicans (like Trey Gowdy and others) to acknowledge the memo release changes nothing with Mueller’s investigation.
2. Then the stock market took the biggest single-day nose dive in history. This is the man who has taken credit for every single positive thing that’s happened in the last few months. Every time the stock market went on an uptick, he claimed it was because of him and his amazing administration. However, now that it’s tanking in historic fashion he’s fallen unsurprisingly silent.
But it gets worse.
3. Despite having control of both the House and the Senate, the government is about to shut down again, yet Trump is busy fighting with people on Twitter instead of working with Democrats across the aisle to save America from this disaster. He can’t get himself together, let alone his administration and Congress.
4. Bill Palmer points out, “Now that Donald Trump’s memo stunt has flatly failed, he’s that much closer to having to either grant an interview to Robert Mueller or invoke the Fifth Amendment. He’s desperate to avoid having to do either of those, and yet he’s headed straight into it. This might be his worst day yet, but far worse days for him are coming soon.”
5. Trump’s own lawyers are so scared about Trump’s penchant for lying that they are advising against a Mueller meeting.
New York Times reports, “His lawyers are concerned that the president, who has a history of making false statements and contradicting himself, could be charged with lying to investigators. Their stance puts them at odds with Mr. Trump, who has said publicly and privately that he is eager to speak with Mr. Mueller as part of the investigation into possible ties between his associates and Russia’s election interference, and whether he obstructed justice.”
Trump is doing his best to dig himself out of the massive hole he’s in, but he seems to only be making it worse. The end of Trump’s time in the White House is getting closer with each passing day and it’s obvious that even he knows it.
