We Must Be Getting Close To The End Now: Trump Asks If He Can Pardon HIMSELF

Thursday was some kind of bad day for Donald Trump.

It started with the world waking up to him looking like a chump, once again, in contrast with former President Obama. After the discovery that John McCain has brain cancer, Obama (and almost everyone else) found the time to extend personal, heartfelt wishes for the Arizona senator. Trump, true to form, came in with a half-ass tweet much later. Even that seemed insincere after Trump’s public wish for McCain to recover quickly just so he could get back and vote on Trumpcare.

Then his interview with Maggie Haberman in the New York Times revealed just multiple levels of insanity from the wild-haired manchild, culminating in the news that the Japanese Prime Minister’s wife pretended not to speak English for hours, just to avoid talking to him at the G20.

Then Trump found out Robert Mueller, as part of his investigation, would have access to Trump family financials.

Let’s see… Financials. I feel like there’s something included there he’s been avoiding making public. Oh, that’s right — his taxes. When Trump found out Mueller could see years of taxes, he went absolutely ballistic, according to his aides. A late Thursday report from the Washington Post revealed his legal team’s been exploring a case for firing Mueller. Possible grounds include conflicts of interest, which his team has apparently been compiling a list of — or things Team Trump thinks are conflicts, anyway.

But most interesting of all in the Post report was the fact that the president is now exploring his authority to pardon people — including himself.

It’s never been done, and there is nothing but wild speculation as to whether it even can be done. No-one knows whether it would stand up to Supreme Court scrutiny. But the fact that the possibility has come up at all is evidence enough for this spectator to conclude that Donald Trump is very, very worried.

That should make any of us happy.
