Trump Almost Shaking During Newsmax Interview: ‘This Lady Yesterday, is There Something Wrong with Her?!’

Whenever Donald Trump feels endangered, he runs to his safe spot to tell his story as if he has no worries. as if this is all the Democrats, as if Trump has been this total victim from day one, from very bad people trying to ruin the country, and on and on. We all know the drill.

It is interesting, though, that after Tuesday’s devastating testimony by Cassidy Hutchinson, Trump didn’t go to the old safe space, he didn’t run into Hannity’s arms, in part because Hannity is a witness, Hannity wrote texts to Meadows about the 6th being terrible and no more talk of rigged elections, etc., and – in part, because even Fox covered the hearings and found them to be devastating to Trump. No, Trump went to Newsmax, where he wouldn’t be questioned at all.

Trump is really disturbed by the allegation that he dove at the Secret Service agents and tried to commandeer the SUV. So Trump lied and lied. Trump said that she had been “totally discreted” by the Secret Service, which is not true. No one at the Secret Service denied the story, they did say that they wanted to testify, but Bobby Engel, the lead Secret Service agent has already testified on June 6th.

Trump went on and on about the many things that the Committee is getting wrong and people lying, saying that Republicans should be on the Committee cross-examining her, even going to far as to suggest there’s “something wrong with her,” and saying she’s like the old Lyle Lovitz character on SNL, the liar.  As for “cross-examination,” the Democrats begged the Republicans to be on the Committee.

But most importantly, Trump is acting like this paralyzed and helpless victim who is being abused because he cannot talk. And yet he is free to go down and testify to the Committee. At any point, Trump could put his hand on the Bible and answer questions, it is an absolute certainty that the Committee would grant him their time.

But he won’t because it’s all bullsh*t, it’s all the same stuff. Except if you listen to Trump below, the pale guy stammers and has a little less bravado in his words this time, going through the motions, but his heart just isn’t in it anymore. It is almost like he knows they’re getting closer and closer.
