“He’s furious at Rosenstein, but the list of his people who enrage him is ever-growing,” a longtime Trump confidant, who recently spoke to the president, told The Daily Beast. “He has no qualms about throwing [Rosenstein] under a bus.”
Rosenstein threatened to resign the last time that Trump did something stupid and then blamed him, on the occasion of James Comey’s firing, when the White House was characterizing Rosenstein as Comey’s hatchet man — then Trump contradicted his own White House staff, again, and told Lester Holt that he would have fired Comey anyway, regardless of Rosenstein’s memo. Even after that debacle, Trump can’t keep his mouth shut or his twitter finger holstered.
Trump is fumbling and flailing and not just with his thumbs on twitter, typing “covfefe.” He’s bouncing off the ropes. Fine, let him. A heavyweight named Mueller is warming up and when he and Trump are in the ring together it will be a match that will be described by historians as “epic.”
