President Trump is learning the hard way that colluding with a hostile foreign power to tilt an election in your favor comes with some serious consequences.
An increasingly frustrated and defensive Trump just threw a tantrum and stormed out of an executive order signing ceremony when CBS’ White House Correspondent tried to ask a question about disgraced former National Security Advisor Gen. Michael Flynn, who has just offered to testify, presumably against his former bosses, in front of the Senate and House committees investigating the Trump team’s connections to Russia.
In the video below, you can see Pence try to bring Trump back into the room, who refuses and dismissively tells him to get the papers with a tilt of his head.
Coming on the same day that Axios reports Trump is “confused and paralyzed” by his own chaotic management style, it’s clear that our hypersensitive president is feeling the pressure from the constant criticism and by the knowledge that sooner or later, he’s going to have to pay the price for the crimes that he and his cronies committed during the election.
Trump’s petulant insistence on behaving like a spoiled teen caught hiding a bottle of vodka under his bed is all but an admission of guilt. The lies and the obfuscation and the distractions coming from the Trump administration ring more hollow with every passing day, and it’s only a matter of time before the other shoe drops.
