Donald Trump gets visibly angry and ends interview after being asked for proof that Obama okayed illegal surveillance directed at him.

Courtesy of Raw Story: 

President Donald Trump grew visibly angry and walked away from an interview with CBS News reporter John Dickerson after Dickerson pressed him for proof that former President Barack Obama had illegally wiretapped Trump Tower.

“He was very nice to me, but after that, we’ve had some difficulties,” said Trump. “So it doesn’t matter. You know, words are less important to me than deeds, and you saw what happened with surveillance.” 

Dickerson then asked Trump for evidence that Obama had illegally wiretapped him, but Trump wouldn’t offer any — while insisting that “our side has been proven very strongly.” 

Dickerson contradicted Trump, however, and pointed out that nothing had been proven. 

“I just wanted to find out,” Dickerson said. “You’re the president of the United States. You said [Obama] was sick and bad.” After some more attempts at getting Trump to present evidence, Trump simply said, “That’s enough, thank you,” and walked away from the interview.

I think "I don't stand by anything, you can take it the way you want" should be the take away quote from this exchange.

And good on John Dickerson for staying on it the way he did.

Trump does this pathetic double talk thing, that for some reason seems to work in a lot of situations to get him out of actually answering a question.

"Our side has been proven very strongly, and everybody's talking about it" is certainly NOT evidence of ANYTHING.

And Trump is such a baby that he simply cannot handle reporters who demand an actual answer to a question.

    Senate panel puts Russia sanctions bill on hold

    Bipartisan legislation to impose sanctions on Russia over alleged meddling in Ukraine, Syria and the 2016 U.S. elections is indefinitely on hold, according to the Senate’s top voice on foreign policy, likely until the Senate Intelligence Committee completes its investigation into the Kremlin’s activities.

    Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said Monday that the Senate would wait “to get some facts” before moving ahead with the bill, which codifies existing sanctions against Russia imposed by executive order since 2014 and introduces new punitive measures against anyone supporting Russian cyber-hacking against public or private infrastructure.

    The measure has support from high-ranking Democrats and Republican hawks, but struggled to get support from Corker, who earlier had insisted on renegotiating the bill before allowing it to proceed to the floor.

    Something funny is happening with President Trump, though: Over the last week or two, he has instead appeared to return to many of the habits he developed on the campaign trail. That includes another campaign-style rally on Saturday, a sudden gusher of sit-down interviews, and an even more improvisatory approach than usual. These returns to habit correspond with, and seem to follow, the president’s ongoing inability to achieve much with the presidency.

    ...Trump’s problem is that he faces a vicious cycle: The more his presidency feels stalled, the more he reverts to his campaign mode. And the more he reverts to campaign mode, the less influence and attention he seems able to garner.

    1. We have a neighbor who we think is borderline Ausbergers. He does the same thing. It's like he resets to the default.

      For him it's bringing my Mom pie. It used to be wine and we finally got him to stop doing that. Then he started bringing pie. I had a long talk with him on one of our dog walks about not giving us gift cards for Christmas ($200 each for Cheesecake Factory!) I told him my Mom really likes fresh flowers. Don't give them wine or pie. My Mom loves flowers. He was getting it for a while, gave her flowers for her birthday and then for Christmas. Then something happened and he reset and brought wine AND pie for New Year's.

      This was something drilled into him by his Mother as he was growing up I have no doubt. He has a checklist of social skills he uses for occasions. One being if someone gives you something or invites you over, etc. you bring wine. Or pie.

    2. You mean Asperger's. And it officially does not exist anymore in the latest version of the DSM. I forget which revised number it's at now.

      Besides the fact that there were no hard clinical diagnostic criteria for the syndrome, there was a problem with people preening themselves that they "had" Asperger's or high-functioning autism. Clinicians reported large numbers of people seeking care after they had taken an on-line questionnaire for Asperger's syndrome and were thrilled that they had "passed."

      Current popular behavior and social media suggest that some are designating themselves as "Aspies" in order to excuse a multitude of poor coping behaviors, rather than a true disorder, and also to attribute to themselves higher traits of sensitivity and creativity.

      Keep it simple. Socially awkward people are most likely just socially awkward and inept, not sufferers from any true disorder, borderline or not.

    Trump is updating the "let them eat cake" line to "LET THEM STARVE."

    Donald Trump: America's Marie Antoinette

    Story highlights:
    • This weekend, Donald Trump made his fifth visit to his Florida country club Mar-a-Lago

    • Each visit costs American taxpayers millions in federal and local law enforcement dollars

    • But taxpayer money should instead be going to assist our nation's most vulnerable citizens, writes Obeidallah

    (CNN) On Thursday, Donald Trump released his budget for 2017, which proposes slashing programs that help some of our nation's most vulnerable citizens, including the poor and the elderly. And then Trump, in his own "let them eat cake" moment, jetted off 24 hours later to spend another weekend at his luxurious private country club Mar-a-Lago, a place described as akin to the Palace of Versailles.

    Trump's opulent Mar-a-Lago is an estate that Marie Antoinette would have felt right at home in. It boasts 16th century Flemish tapestries, lavish oriental rugs and a Louis XIV-style ballroom added by Trump that includes $7 million in gold leaf on the walls.

    Now if Trump were simply spending his weekends at Mar-a-Lago on his own dime, that would be one thing. But he's not. You, I and every other taxpayer are the ones paying for the five trips Trump has taken there since being sworn in as President.

    In other words, instead of spending money on those most in need, Trump is wasting taxpayer dollars on a lavish lifestyle he is seeking to maintain....

    Responding to the widespread criticism of his assertion that Jackson – who died nearly two decades before the Civil War even began – was “really angry” about the war not being avoided, Trump claimed what he really meant was that America’s 7th president could predict the future.


    ...When Trump first made his comments about slave-owner Andrew Jackson being troubled that the Civil War wasn’t avoided, he clearly didn’t know that Jackson had died 16 years before one of America’s bloodiest wars even began.

    Instead of admitting that he has a worse-than-elementary level grasp of American history, Trump doubled down and now claims that Jackson could predict the future.

    In making yet another comment about Jackson’s supposed role in the Civil War, he is only keeping the spotlight fixed on his ignorance and giving this story more mileage than it probably would’ve otherwise had.

    ‘Trump’s mouth is only good as Vladimir Putin’s c*ck holster’: Colbert brutalizes Trump in 2-minute blitz

    Colbert noted Dickerson has too much “dignity to trade insults with the president of the United States to his face,” adding “But I, sir, am no John Dickerson.”

    “Here we go,” Colbert began, before ripping into Trump.

    “Mr. Trump, your presidency? I love your presidency, I call it ‘Disgrace the Nation.’” Colbert said. “You’re not the POTUS, you’re the BLOTUS. You’re the glutton with a button. You’re a regular ‘Gorge’ Washington. You’re the presi-dunce. But you’re turning into a real prictator.”

    Colbert said Trump “attracts more skinheads than free Rogaine,” has “more people marching against [him] than cancer,” and talks “like a sign-language gorilla who got hit in the head.”

    Going all-in against the president, Colbert added: “Sir, the only the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s cock holster.”

    Preet Bharara gave all his evidence on Donald Trump to New York Attorney General before firing

    Back when Donald Trump woke up one day in March and decided to ask forty-six U.S. Attorneys for their immediate resignations, many suspected that it was merely cover for getting rid of Preet Bharara in particular. He’d busted Russian and Turkish nationals with alleged connections to Trump, and was presumably going after Trump himself next. But Bharara refused to resign, buying him an extra day or two before being fired – and now we know why.

    “I’m told by my source that Bharara took that time while still in office to collect and transfer all Trump files to [New York State Attorney General Eric] Schneiderman,” revealed Washington insider Claude Taylor today (link). This helps explain several things. One is why Preet Bharara bought himself an extra bit of time by refusing to abide by Trump’s request to resign; he needed that time to pull his accumulated evidence together and get it to Schneiderman. The other is why Schneiderman ended up hiring Bharara’s former right hand man Howard Master (NY Daily News) just ten days later, in a move that could not have been coincidental.

    This also explains why Schneiderman is now reportedly bringing state level RICO charges against Trump and his associates (link). Preet Bharara had likely been working on a federal level RICO case against Trump at the time Trump fired him. So why would Bharara give the evidence to a state level official instead of a fellow federal official?

    Steve Bannon’s influence over Donald Trump’s White House, which initially seemed almost limitless, has since plummeted. Trump removed Bannon from the National Security Council last month, and has repeatedly been kicking him out of meetings. At this point his exit from the White House wouldn’t be shocking. And according to respected MSNBC host Joy-Ann Reid, a plan for his exit is now in motion.

    Over the weekend, reports leaked out that Jim DeMint is in the process of being ousted from conservative think tank Heritage Foundation. Reid is now reporting that, according to her Republican Party source, billionaire Rebekah Mercer – a longtime friend and backer of Steve Bannon – is seeking to install Bannon as the Heritage Foundation’s new president (link). But this doesn’t appear to be a complete divorce between Trump and Bannon.

    Reid says that the Trump White House is angry at the Heritage Foundation for helping to kill off its AHCA health care bill a month ago (link). Thus, installing Bannon at Heritage would serve to replace a Trump enemy with a Trump ally while also giving “Bannon a soft landing to get him out of the White House.” Obviously, Bannon is prepared to make the move, or Mercer wouldn’t be trying to orchestrate it. But it’s not a done deal.

    As Reid points out,
