26 days since the National Day of Patriotic Devotion

(Morning Edition)

This is possibly the saddest, most desperate message Trump has tweeted since his inauguration:

“This Russian connection non-sense is merely an attempt to cover-up the many mistakes made in Hillary Clinton’s losing campaign.” Donald Trump, via Twitter, 4:08 am, February 15 2017

I mean, talk about grasping at straws. Like anybody gives a shit about Clinton’s campaign besides Trump. There’s something soothing about the oddly old-fashioned use of hypens, though, so thanks for that.

Then Trump goes and pretty much confirms that the press has been printing intelligence from the same reports he’s been briefed on:

“Information is being illegally given to the failing @nytimes & @washingtonpost by the intelligence community (NSA and FBI?).Just like Russia” Donald Trump, via Twitter, 4:19 am 15 February 2017

“U.S. immigration authorities have detained a 23-year-old Mexican man who was brought to the United States illegally as a child and given a work permit during the Obama administration … The man’s lawyers say this could be the first time under U.S. President Donald Trump that a person covered by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, has been taken into immigration custody. The program was established in 2012 by Democratic President Barack Obama to allow those brought to the country while young to attend school and work.” Reuters, 15 February 2017
