Yesterday I wrote an article about how Emperor Numbus Nuttus’ decision to go ahead and testify in his deposition for New York Attorney General Letitia James in her civil fraud suit against him most likely burned his last bridge. I provided examples, and they’re all valid. But the more I think about it, the more I realize with my perspective of the alleged man that it’s even worse than just what I wrote.
Let’s start with the old saw, because it’s the weight bearing member for all that builds on top of it. Trump is an imbecile. And not just a political imbecile, he’s also a narcissistic, ego driven, arrogant imbecile in both his business as well as his personal life. And that makes him incredibly dangerous as well as self destructive.
For example, anybody who works for Trump knows that he’s the worlds worst micromanager. Even secretaries, as well as Trump’s former fixer, Michael Cohen have told the tales that nobody even dares to order paperclips without his express approval. But he’s also one of the worst micromanagers in the history of micromanagement.
Former Trump executive Barbara Res, the first woman to be promoted to an executive position in real estate construction under Trump’s tutelage, laid him bare. Res told about how Traitor Tot would show up on a job site she was supervising, greet her warmly with a Hello Barbara and a hug, and then say Gimme an update. Whereupon Res would launch into a prepared recitation of the current progress, estimates for future progress, and a capsule precis of any problems. And it was clear that Trump wasn’t listening to a word, he wasn’t even looking at her. He was admiring the view, turning the power tools over in his hands, gazing around and watching the construction guys work. He clearly never heard a word she said. And when she wound down, he would smile to her, nod, and say, That’s great Barbara, let me know if you need anything.
So this mental midget didn’t have the vaguest idea of what was going on on his own job sites because that was Barbara Res’ job. Some world class micromanager, huh?
And it wasn’t just on job sites, it was rampant in Trump Tower too. Both Michael Cohen, as well as Tony Schwartz, who ghost wrote The Art of the Deal talking about Trump sitting behind his desk while his CFO, Allan Weisselberg was going over facts and figures for him. But Trump was more interested in awing through swatches of carpet and/or wallpaper for his latest doomed schlock hotel-casino in Atlantic City. Trump would reportedly, according to witnesses, talk right over Weisselberg to turn to Cohen, or Schwartz, or whomever was in the room, hold up a swatch in each hand, and say, Waddaya think? Which is better for the bathrooms, this one or this one? While Weisselberg winds down, hopelessly trying to get The Mango Messiah’s attention.
But here’s the coup de grace. Trump is obsessively secretive. Like the mob boss he secretly craves to be, Trump is paranoid about leaving a paper trail, or a trail of any kind. While he routinely uses Twitter and Facebook for his political claptrap, Trump never uses e-mail, doesn’t text, and almost never leaves a voicemail on the phone. Trump is equally obsessive about paper. Former employees, both in Trump Tower as well as the White House recall Trump maniacally tearing a document into tiny pieces. Some even recall FrankenTrump stuffing the small pieces of paper in his mouth, then chewing and swallowing them. And the guy claims to be a germaphobe, right?
Here’s why this is so critical. When January 6th Superstar Cassidy Hutchinson showed up for her deposition, she came equipped with folders and binders with documents and evidence for her to refer to in questioning, as well as buttressing her testimony in front of the panel. From what I could see, Trump showed up for his deposition to James with nothing more than his Schwartz in his hand.
This is nothing but an unmitigated disaster. Once again, Trump is an imbecile. He knows nothing. But in his own mind, The Trumpster Fire is a very stable genius. And since he doesn’t come with any actual facts or documents to his deposition, he’s basically making sh*t up. And that’s a recipe for disaster.
In interviewing a witness, it is standard practice when you think the witness may be lying to ask a question that begs an obvious follow up. Ask the question, let the witness answer, and then, instead of following up with the obvious question and letting the witness spout out some prefab pap, switch topics and ask other questions instead. Once the witnesses concentration is broken, go back to the original question and ask the follow up. And since Trump has the attention span of a gamboling puppy, there is no way he is going to make that transition. Man! Talk about a spring lamb to the slaughter.
With all of that being said, now you know why I can’t believe that when either Letitia James, or her chosen surrogate began to question Trump, and realized that he was in full free association mode, it would have been prosecutorial misconduct to not sprinkle in some questions that could assist Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg with his case. Not hammer away all at once, you don’t want to tip your mitts and have him clamming up under the 5th Amendment. Just use those questions as change up’s, let him answer, and then gift wrap these golden nuggets as the noose for Alvin Bragg to place around Trump’s legal neck. Take my word for it, the moron will never even notice what’s going on.
There you have it. Once again, Trump is an imbecile. But he’s so self delusional that he is incapable of understanding that he’s a clear and present danger to himself. And Trump is an arrogant authoritarian. He doesn’t take orders from his marginally qualified lawyers, he gives orders to obtain the results he desires. Which they can’t do, since they have to follow the law. MAGA means Making Attorneys Get Attorneys. Buckle in folks, this is going to get bloody.
