The fact that Trump is tweeting this late, and so crazily -- including accidentally leaking classified info -- means something bad happened.

regarding "How Do I Explain This to My Kids: Parenting in the Age of Trump"

book by child psychologist Dr. Ava Siegler-

 

"I believe that we are in the midst of a national disaster and parents are our first responders. To counter what’s happening, you need to redouble your efforts to criticize what you see and hear in the Trump administration and reinforce the values that you want your child to have....

 

The biggest threat we are all facing as Americans is the diminishment and destruction of what I could call the civilizing emotions — empathy, self-control, morality and realistic self-regard..........

 

Trump operates in an amoral, unethical and nakedly opportunistic environment.........

 

An unintended consequence of the Trump presidency is the outrage and protest and resistance of most Americans. You need to encourage your children to persist and resist against Trump’s values and policies.

We are in the midst of a cultural revolution and our children are our soldiers. They will vote in a future election and change our world and save our democracy......

 

you might say: “Trump is making bad decisions, but lots of people are fighting against him and are trying to stop him.” For older children, it’s extremely important to increase their knowledge of what’s going on in the world and engage them in social activism......

 

Reassure them and remind them that no matter how bad things are, how bad Trump is, he is not a king. We are a democracy and we are all working hard to make sure we elect someone better in four years."

This is a mess. Trump could use this as an excuse to fire Sessions and appoint someone else who will fire Mueller.

DT trying to kill Mueller probe. Wants to pardon his family & even himself. How sickening is this crime family? Don't let DT kill Democracy...that guy sounds like a real meathead. :D
And the "meathead" was usually right in his discussions with his racist reactionary father-in-law, including about Nixon breaking the law and being drummed out of office.

Sound familiar?

Takeaway from the Post & NYT pieces is we are headed for certain crisis. Trump just will not, cannot allow this investigation to go forward.

I don't think the phrase "It's all about the VLADIMIR'S" will ever catch on.  ;)

How about "It's all about the Vlads"? Or "Its all about the Putins" which could be the title of a book recounting Trump's successful presidential run.

Judging by this fridge magnet on sale in Moscow, Russia's president has become rather influential in America.

Threatening to fire Mueller if M looks into Junior's or Kushner's finances is a dead giveaway that the jig is up

Actually, the word should be FOUNDERING.  But, that's ENGLISH, a language many Americans have yet to master.  ;)

 

I can't be sure HOW Trump sees himself, but only know that SELF is his operating word.

 

And I DO see him as wondering why the job didn't come with a CROWN.

 

 

Sepiatone

Perhaps he is floundering, as in fishing for flounder?  

And English is a foregin language, since we speak American here. (joke)
