It started out with Trump Tweeting about a news story that was in progress regarding his contact with China--he flagged an earlier story that indicated when he last called the Chinese government, which was updated at some point after his most recent call, which left him linking to a story in a Tweet about his having just now called China that made it look like he actually was not able to read.
He also was quick like a bunny in Tweeting about Lawfareblog.com regarding a quote he heard on the very-low rated failing Morning Joe show he supposedly never watches, which is not actually favorable to his immigration executive order. This also sort of made it look like he either doesn't read (or can't), or just responded via Twitter to a thing he saw on tv, without any critical thought.
This is pretty non-terrific. But he did have what could have been a saving grace--a visit from Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who is an ally of the US, and how could Trump screw that up--
Except by giving one of his weird dominance-display handshakes to someone whose culture isn't even about handshakes, and getting his name wrong because foreign policy-fail.
This scenario makes a liar out of VP Mike Pence, who either was misled by Flynn or is covering up a little. But what is amazing is that this little bit of who said what to who when and who knew it and when is going on while law enforcement is finding more credibility in the Russian dossier. This once again reminds us that there was a lot of fishiness about the circumstances of what kind of stories were being pushed in various media during the election--to Trump's favor.
But let's not suppose that Trump is any more aware of that than he is of the Flynn story (he says). After all, he has his mind firmly fixed on the real electoral threat of busloads of Massholes invading New Hampshire to vote illegally. (I love you, Massachusetts, and wouldn't call you "Massholes" myself, but that's what alleged Pats fan Trump is saying, which is wicked two-faced, right?)
Anyhow, this is another very not-good day in Trumplandia.
