I can’t possibly be the only person on the planet in possession of the following experience.
I watched (and heard) Tucker Carlson of Fox News ask President Donald J. Trump the following question:
“So on March 4, 6:35 in the morning, you’re down in Florida, and you tweet, the former administration wiretapped me, surveilled me, at Trump Tower during the last election. How did you find out? You said, I just found out. How did you learn that?”
“Well, I’ve been reading about things. I read in, I think it was January 20 a “New York Times” article where they were talking about wiretapping. There was an article, I think they used that exact term. I read other things. I watched your friend Bret Baier the day previous where he was talking about certain very complex sets of things happening, and wiretapping. I said, wait a minute, there’s a lot of wiretapping being talked about. I’ve been seeing a lot of things.”
I can’t be the only one who wants to call out, “Is there a doctor in the house? This guy’s off the rails.”
If you think this is a stretch, read Carson’s question and then Trump’s answer, out loud. I mean it. Read it out loud. You’ll hear the words and find yourself in the land of cringe.
That some commentators, most truly honorable folks, seek to credit Trump’s delusional ramblings with some clever thought-out strategy is a waste of good minds. The question is, who’s playing Trump? The answer, I believe, rests at the (shared) Bannon-Putin doorstep.
