Trump’s EPIC Meltdown During Fox & Friends Interview

Trump has an epic meltdown during a live Fox & Friends interview.

Trump recites conspiracy theory about the “DNC server”

The expansive remarks by the president came during a rambling, roughly hourlong phone call to “Fox & Friends,” in an exercise co-host Brian Kilmeade dubbed a “stress release.”
The previous two weeks have been a period of intense pressure for the White House, as impeachment investigators have heard televised testimony from a dozen witnesses detailing a sweeping campaign by the Trump administration seeking Ukraine-led probes into the president’s political opponents.”

I do want always corruption I say that
to anybody like technically a slip of
the tongue I guess some would say a
Freudian slip perhaps with that Donald
Trump Brewer than you purposed so
exactly exactly so there Donald Trump
president of these United States called
up Fox and Friends and they tried to
interview him I can’t say that they
interviewed him because that implied
that he ever stopped talking and they
got an a questioning they did get
questions in occasion essentially and it
was the kind of question where they just
repeat what he just said in astonishment
mm-hmm like you don’t what you want a
great example of that let’s do let’s go
to our first clip because we got a feel
that we’re to go to but Donald Trump
he’s not going to be deterred by like
Fiona Hills testimony yesterday about
how the whole CrowdStrike Ukraine 2016
thing is a Russian promoted conspiracy
theory to get the suspicion off of them
for interfering with US elections that
was just yesterday that was debunked yet
again a Donald Trump today spreading it
on Fox and Friends from the DNC
Democratic National Committee who has
the sir know the FBI went and they told
him get out of here you’re not kidding
we’re not giving it to you
they gave the server to CrowdStrike or
whatever it’s called which is a country
which is a company owned by a very
wealthy Ukrainian and I still wanted to
see that server you know the FBI has
never gotten that server that’s a big
part of this whole thing why did they
give it to a Ukrainian company where you
sure they did that are you sure they
gave it to Ukraine well the next word
start a Trump are like that’s what I
hear that that’s a word that’s the word
that’s there’s a lot of words on the
internet you should not trust most of
them these of them are bad words this is
so horrible mm-hmm like that
specifically is so horrible and a
microcosm of what’s been happening in
media discourse
under the trump presidency like those
are jesters this was a four there’s a
fifty minute interview with Donald Trump
a fifty minute show and never anywhere
else has it been so apparent that Fox
and Friends are the court jesters
because jesters job was to come before
the king
and put on a show just before the king
as he doesn’t care if they live or die
as he toys with them to his heart’s
content either laughing at them and
rewarding them with praise or not being
satisfied with their performance and
then like literally tarring and
feathering them I like the metaphor and
I think that there’s something to that
but like the Jester is supposed to be
able to talk every once in a while like
this is the gesture like are you sure
you want don’t don’t pick that up no
don’t throw that when mr. president
seriously we don’t eat that that’s not
every other day when he’s not on the
show is the jesters performance because
this is that moment where the Justin
where the court with a the the King
gives them feedback gives them feedback
yeah that’s it and it becomes so
apparent in this moment as they just
stare and the producers need to do
something else basically with that I cut
them like and I don’t understand how
people watching that at home don’t see
their beloved Fox and Friends faces yeah
just melting with a sad you sure about
that and like occasionally I want Jarrow
to make a mashup for the main show but
he’ll be talking talking talking like
start talking and John stop talking
yours okay I’ve decided right what
happened was the tightness in the shots
what they do he keeps talking they try
to get a question because he’s rambling
off and they try to get in and they
can’t and then they smile at the camera
because they know this is this is
pointless we don’t even need to be here
we should just given him you know sent
him a webcam and he could broadcast an
hour to the Fox audience but anyway to
the content of what he said there he
said they the FBI came into the DNC and
tried to get the server and they said get
out of here FBI
which is a thing you can
legally do somehow and they didn’t give
this the server all of that is nonsense
and it’s it’s so many steps of nonsense
that it makes you just feel like a crazy
person CrowdStrike is not a Ukrainian
company it’s a it’s a company based in
California that’s what it is
there wasn’t a server there were 140
servers some of them physical servers
some of them digital servers information
existing in the cloud which is a concept
you’re not going to get the president to
understand there was no one server to
hand over there were many servers which
were imaged and all of the information
was given to the FBI the FBI which by
the way along with 16 other intelligence
services the United States all agree
that Ukraine was not meddling in the
2016 election it was Russia but he is
spreading this conspiracy theory which
can be if you go back far enough the
origins are the Russian intelligence
services themselves he is continuing to
spread and already many times debunked
conspiracy theory in the midst of this
impeachment inquiry and well that’s his
defense and he isn’t even spreading it
right which only serves the purpose of
conspiracy conspiracy theories at large
which is just this cloud of doubt is a a
bunch of sand that is his only goal

Donna Brazile: I considered replacing Clinton with Biden as 2016 Democratic nominee

Former Democratic National Committee head Donna Brazile writes in a new book that she seriously contemplated replacing Hillary Clinton as the party’s 2016 presidential nominee with then-Vice President Biden in the aftermath of Clinton’s fainting spell, in part because Clinton’s campaign was “anemic” and had taken on “the odor of failure.”

.. Brazile writes that she considered a dozen combinations to replace the nominees and settled on Biden and Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.), the duo she felt most certain would win over enough working-class voters

.. Brazile paints a scathing portrait of Clinton as a well-intentioned, historic candidate whose campaign was badly mismanaged, took minority constituencies for granted and made blunders with “stiff” and “stupid” messages.

.. Brazile alleges that Clinton’s top aides routinely disrespected her and put the DNC on a “starvation diet,” depriving it of funding for voter turnout operations.

.. Perhaps not since George Stephanopoulos wrote “All Too Human,” a 1999 memoir of his years working for former president Bill Clinton, has a political strategist penned such a blistering tell-all.

.. Brazile reveals how fissures of race, gender and age tore at the heart of the operation — even as Clinton was campaigning on a message of inclusiveness and trying to assemble a rainbow coalition under the banner of “Stronger Together.”

.. Brazile abruptly and, she writes, reluctantly took over in July 2016 for chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

.. Brazile describes her mounting anxiety about Russia’s theft of emails and other data from DNC servers, the slow process of discovering the full extent of the cyberattacks and the personal fallout. She likens the feeling to having rats in your basement: “You take measures to get rid of them, but knowing they are there, or have been there, means you never feel truly at peace.”

.. Brazile writes that she was haunted by the still-unsolved murder of DNC data staffer Seth Rich and feared for her own life, shutting the blinds to her office window so snipers could not see her and installing surveillance cameras at her home. She wonders whether Russians had placed a listening device in plants in the DNC executive suite.

.. top Democratic officials were “encouraging us not to talk about it.” But she says a wake-up moment came when she visited the White House in August 2016, for President Obama’s 55th birthday party. National security adviser Susan E. Rice and former attorney general Eric Holder separately pulled her aside to urge her to take the Russian hacking seriously, which she did, she writes.

That fall, Brazile says she tried to persuade her Republican counterparts to agree to a joint statement condemning Russian interference but that they ignored her messages and calls.

.. Backstage at a debate, she writes, she approached Sean Spicer, then-chief strategist for the Republican National Committee, but “I could see his eyes dart away like this was the last thing he wanted to talk to me about.” She asked RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, too, but “I got that special D.C. frost where the person smiles when he sees you but immediately looks past you trying to find someone in the room to come right over and interrupt the conversation.”

.. The WikiLeaks releases included an email in which Brazile, a paid CNN contributor at the time, shared potential topics and questions for a CNN town hall in advance with the Clinton campaign. She claims in her book that she did not recall sending the email and could not find it in her computer archives

.. Whenever Brazile got frustrated with Clinton’s aides, she writes, she would remind them that the DNC charter empowered her to initiate the replacement of the nominee. If a nominee became disabled, she explains, the party chair would oversee a complicated process of filling the vacancy that would include a meeting of the full DNC... The morning of Sept. 12, Brazile got a call from Biden’s chief of staff saying the vice president wanted to speak with her. She recalls thinking, “Gee, I wonder what he wanted to talk to me about?” Jeff Weaver, campaign manager for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), called, too, to set up a call with his boss, and former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley sent her an email.
.. Brazile writes that she inherited a national party in disarray, in part because President Obama, Clinton and Wasserman Schultz were “three titanic egos” who had “stripped the party to a shell for their own purposes.”
.. In her first few days on the job, Brazile writes that she also discovered the DNC was $2 million in debt and that the payroll was stacked with “hangers-on and sycophants.” For instance, Wasserman Schultz kept two consulting firms — SKDKnickerbocker and Precision Strategies — each on $25,000-a-month retainers, and one of Obama’s pollsters was still being paid $180,000 a year.
.. Brazile also details how Clinton effectively took control of the DNC in August 2015, before the primaries began, with a joint fundraising agreement between the party and the Clinton campaign.She said the deal gave Clinton control over the DNC’s finances, strategy and staff decisions — disadvantaging other candidates, including Sanders. “This was not a criminal act, but as I saw it, it compromised the party’s integrity,”

.. Brazile writes that Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook and his lieutenants were so obsessed with voter data and predictive analytics that they “missed the big picture.”

“They knew how to size up voters not by meeting them and finding out what they cared about, what moved their hearts and stirred their souls, but by analyzing their habits,” she writes. “You might be able to persuade a handful of Real Simple magazine readers who drink gin and tonics to change their vote to Hillary, but you had not necessarily made them enthusiastic enough to want to get up off the couch and go to the polls.”

U.S. Prosecutors Consider Charging Russian Officials in DNC Hacking Case

At least six Russian government officials are identified as part of ongoing investigation

The Justice Department has identified more than six members of the Russian government involved in hacking the Democratic National Committee’s computers and swiping sensitive information that became public during the 2016 presidential election, according to people familiar with the investigation.

.. It also suggests the eagerness of some federal prosecutors and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents to file charges against those responsible, even if the result is naming the alleged perpetrators publicly and making it difficult for them to travel, rather than incarcerating them. Arresting Russian operatives is highly unlikely, people familiar with the probe said.
.. the Justice Department has been bringing more cases against alleged hackers acting on behalf of foreign governments as a means of making the allegations public and potentially forcing a change in behavior, people familiar with the strategy said.
