One of the greatest

Here’s one for the books: Trump’s people are bragging to the press about how “unprecedentedly” transparent Trump and his gang are being. Transparent – oh sure, the guy who won’t release his tax returns, the guy who can’t utter a sentence without a lie in it, the guy who told the head of the CIA to “lean on” the head of the FBI to back off investigating him (Trump), the guy who composed a lying version of what happened when Don Junior met with the Russians – do tell us all about how transparent he is.

On Wednesday, Trump said at his impromptu appearance that not only did his campaign not collude with the Russians who attacked the election, but the contacts between campaign aides and Russians or Russian agents didn’t matter.

“I can tell you, there’s no collusion,” Trump said. “I couldn’t have cared less about Russians having to do with my campaign. The fact is — you people won’t say this, but I’ll say it: I was a much better candidate than her. You always say she was a bad candidate. You never say I was a good candidate. I was one of the greatest candidates.”

Well, he is transparent about what a good opinion he has of himself.
