The one thing necessary

The Post has more on the “Trump was enraged that the intelligence people did a briefing on Russian plans to get him re-elected” story.

A senior U.S. intelligence official told lawmakers last week that Russia wants to see President Trump reelected, viewing his administration as more favorable to the Kremlin’s interests, according to people who were briefed on the comments.

After learning of that analysis, which was provided to House lawmakers in a classified hearing, Trump erupted at his acting director of national intelligence, Joseph Maguire, in the Oval Office, perceiving him and his staff as disloyal for speaking to Congress about Russia’s perceived preference.

Trump did not erupt at Russia, and vow to leave nothing undone that would block Russia’s plans to help him steal another election. No, he erupted at his own DNI because he perceived him as “disloyal”…to him, Trump. On the one hand the fate of a country of 300+ million people and many more in the rest of the world, and on the other hand the sensitive ego of one bloated ignorant greedy man. The disproportion is startling.

The shake-up at the top of the intelligence community is the latest in a post-impeachment purge. Trump has instructed aides to identify and remove officials across the government who aren’t defending his interests, and he wants to replace them with loyalists.

Across the government – people have to defend his interests. Not ours, not everyone’s, his.

I wish he would suddenly swell up like a balloon and then explode. I wish he would vanish forever.
