Why aren't they from the same year? That feels like a narrative is being pushed. Let's see what Trump said in 2013.

Awkward indeed.

Awkward is a weird word.

What does it tell us about the state of the nation that the White House press secretary was asked about the president’s mental fitness and she responded by changing the subject?

Not really. Considering that a big part of his election babble was that Obama wasn't a "true" Christian (and whisper: quite possibly a Muslim) you really haven't refuted the awkwardness in any way shape or form.

oh no that might really hurt his re-election campaign. Keep deflecting. You helped elect a lunatic, but keep bringing up Obama and Clinton. It's all you have.

Donald Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon has described the Trump Tower meeting between the president’s son and a group of Russians during the 2016 election campaign as “treasonous” and “unpatriotic”, according to an explosive new book seen by the Guardian.

He is particularly scathing about a June 2016 meeting involving Trump’s son Donald Jr, son-in-law Jared Kushner, then campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya at Trump Tower in New York


Soon after, Wolff writes, Bannon remarked mockingly: “The three senior guys in the campaign thought it was a good idea to meet with a foreign government inside Trump Tower in the conference room on the 25th floor – with no lawyers. They didn’t have any lawyers.
“Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad shit, and I happen to think it’s all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately.”

Bannon also speculated that Trump Jr had involved his father in the meeting. “The chance that Don Jr did not walk these jumos up to his father’s office on the twenty-sixth floor is zero.”

Sorry; looks like it was Trump Jr, Manafort and Kushner but the connection Trump himself is circumstantial in these quotes...

Apparently many of the conversations were recorded but still, with all of the different factions in the WH, I'm not sure how fair picture of the administration as a whole.

It appears that the book is very much the POV of Bannon ...

I thought two things were especially funny about this book and related gossip floating around.

- Many many articles say that Bannon accused the President of treason, even though his actual comment is about as benign and spurious (in regards to actual treason) as you can get.

- The author of the book is quoted as saying that he believes that his book will lead to the immediate impeachment of Trump. That's hilarious, and would only happen as a political move after the 2018 elections if the dems take back the house.

Best case scenario it might create pressure on the GOP moderates to allow Mueller to complete his investigations.

It breaks my heart and makes me so angry at the same time. So many deaths, but also so many permanently scarred human beings.
