A cut was inflicted Thursday when Fox News’ Shep Smith went on a righteous and extended rant about Trump’s pathologically repeating the same debunked lies every time he gets near a microphone as well as his unwillingness to come clean about what his campaign team was doing talking to high-level Russians the same day Russians are said by the CIA to have hacked the Democrats. Smith called Trump’s erratic behavior “crazy.” But, no surprise, he caught grief on Facebook from Fox watchers who viewed him as disloyal.
Reporting on the surreal Thursday press conference of a decidedly truculent Trump, CNN’s John King reported on yet another cut: “I got a text from a Republican senator who said in this text, 'He should do this with a therapist, not on live television’.” It would be surprising if we don’t see more Republicans jumping ship over the next few days and weeks.
Disarray does not come close to describing what we’re seeing unfold day by friggin’ day. We now have the added possibility, based on the press conference, that the “leader of the free world” is teetering on the precipice of a full-blown meltdown, with all its potential for severe collateral damage. We’re moving into unexplored territory. At breakneck speed. Destination: Unknown.
