    Actual quote from the president: "To me free speech is not when you see something good and then you purposefully write bad. To me that’s very dangerous speech and you become angry at it. But that’s not free speech."

    Trump refused to make Chris Christie the Attorney General because "that guy would prosecute my own kids and not think twice about it," according to a new book on the Trump presidency. https://t.co/HlvMGUjAx5

    ^^ How embarrassing! We have got to get these lunatics out of the White House so we can restore some decency all around. I feel like the whole place has turned into a low rent reality show.

    Italian entrepreneur Paolo Zampolli: I — not Jeffrey Epstein — introduced Trump to Melania

    New book “The Method to the Madness: Donald Trump’s Ascent as Told by Those Who Were Hired, Fired, Inspired — and Inaugurated” by Allen Salkin and Aaron Short includes an account from Italian entrepreneur Paolo Zampolli that he introduced Donald Trump to Melania during a fashion party.

    After the New York Times reported this week that Jeffrey Epstein claimed to have introduced the Donald to Melania, the authors reached out to Zampolli, an envoy to the UN for Dominca, to see if Epstein had attended the fashion bash.

    Zampolli’s response, in red capital letters, was “NO WAY.”

    He called the idea that Epstein had introduced them “fake news. B S.”

    Melania has said she met Trump at the Kit Kat Club during New York Fashion Week in 1998. Trump called accused pedophile Epstein a “terrific guy” in New York Magazine in 2002, but said this week at the White House, “I had a falling out with him. I haven’t spoken to him in 15 years. I was not a fan of his.”

    Salkin and Short celebrated their All Points Books publication this week with a party at restaurant Russian Samovar, where guests included “Get Me Roger Stone” co-director Morgan Pehme.

    Former CIA Director and Republican Michael Hayden: America May Not Survive a Second Trump Term


    While the Mueller investigation was still ongoing, the person whose opinion I was most interested in hearing when it was all over was former CIA Director Gen. Michael Hayden. Based on my prior interviews with him, Hayden, a Republican who has worked for presidents of both political parties, is a straight shooter who was clearly keeping his power dry for what he anticipated would be a climactic moment once all the facts were in.

    Unfortunately, when that time finally came Hayden had shortly before suffered a significant stroke. His voice, like that of so many credible conservative critics of President Donald Trump who have either died, retired, or folded under pressure, was at least temporarily muted from the public discourse.

    Yesterday, having at least partially recovered from his stroke, Hayden graciously and somewhat courageously agreed to do one of his first interviews since returning to public life on my Trump-focused podcast. The results were quite extraordinary.

    Here are some of the highlights:


    • Hayden is very worried about the resignation of the UK ambassador to the United States and the fact that Trump consistently treats our closest allies like enemies and some of our worst enemies like allies.
    • He said there is “no question” that our standing in the world has suffered significantly because of Trump’s behavior as president.
    • Based on his experience as CIA Director, he is says the report this week that Russia was behind the Seth Rich conspiracy theory gaining traction in the American media is “absolutely true,” though he blames our manipulative news media, specifically Fox News, and gullible population, more than he even does the Russians.
    • The Mueller report was even worse for Trump than he had anticipated and he eagerly looks forward to what Robert Mueller will say in his congressional testimonies next week.
    • In his opinion, Attorney General Bill Barr purposely deceived the American people on Trump’s behalf. Hayden agreed with my assertion that the president’s firing of Jeff Sessions, so as to make Barr’s appointment possible, is perhaps the most egregious thing Trump has done during the investigation.
    • What is outlined in the Mueller report is enough to warrant Trump’s impeachment, but Hayden is resigned to the idea that the best course of action would be to forgo the impeachment process and vote him out of office in 2020.
    • Hayden lambasts the “deep state” conspiracy — a wacky theory being pushed by Republicans and the “conservative” media desperate to nullify Mueller’s conclusions that the intelligence agencies were out to get Trump — as being “crazy,” and “just not possible.”
    • He ominously concludes that the damage that Trump has done to our institutions so far can be survived, but that the United States, at least as we know it, may not be able to endure two terms of him as president.


    All of the interview, in which Hayden gamely fights through his current medical impairment, is important and well worth a listen. You can hear all of it at one of these two links:

    Or marking out that he's Hispanic. What, does he want a round of applause and a cookie for not throwing him in an internment camp?
