5. What an idiot.

Does he seriously think a private investigator could get any information at all from any of the intelligence agencies? Does he think some fucking Rockford or Magnum could somehow worm his way into the FBI's files? Too much television, for sure.

This storyline would be outside the bounds of that show, but it would make for fun television.

There is no master plan. He makes this up almost on the spot. His only goal is to line his pockets.

his horrendous agenda. Lining his pockets with taxpayer money is the priority, ruining the country and lives is just a bonus.

16. I Love PI Novels As Much As Anyone

But this is hilarious stuff that you really can't make up. Once again, Trump could pick up his phone (but MAYBE ITS TAPPED) and call his boy Comey for confirmation : he is the pres with all the power of the government behind him. Even in his paranoia he should understand this. Yet like a true bullshit salesman in over his head Donny fears nothing as much as he fears The Truth.

42. Now. No point in trying to fix a situation that can't be fixed . It's making a mockery of

Our democracy. And the only remedy is new elections because the whole election is tainted from foreign malicious interference to a degree that cannot be repaired in bits and pieces. All newly elected members would have to rerun. Any passed legislation will be null and void having been subject to corruption.

Why doesn't Bannon say something to shut him up? It was Breitbart that made up the story. Bannon could just tRump that Breitbart makes up nonsense. Surely Bannon doesn't want tRump to go down in flames because that would cost him his cushy job, too.
