Trump Doesn’t Deny He’s A Russian Asset When Asked By Fox News Host

Trump had another phone interview on Fox News on Saturday and people can’t help but notice that when he was asked if he’s a Russian asset, he didn’t say “no.” Host Jeanine Pirro posed a simple and straightforward question: “Are you now or have you ever worked for Russia Mr. President?”

In his rambling response, he didn’t exactly deny it.

“I think it’s the most insulting thing I’ve ever been asked. I think it’s the most insulting article I’ve ever had written,” he said, referring to the recent New York Times article that revealed an FBI investigation into his being a possible asset of Russia. “And if you read the article you’d see that they found absolutely nothing.”

Just because it’s insulting doesn’t mean it’s not true.

This might help explain why Trump was jumping from odd topic to odd topic on Twitter Sunday, going from the claim that the Democrats don’t think DACA is “worth it” (whatever that means) to the border wall to threatening the nation of Turkey to Jeff Bezos to making the same racist post about Elizabeth Warren twice, 45 minutes apart.

He then called the above video of a woman daring to drink alcohol a “beer catastrophe.” Is that the engine sputtering?

This comes after a full weekend of Twitter rants about the wall that is both not going to happen and was revealed to be vulnerable to *checks notes* common household saws. He also lost the possibility of GoFundMe money and is under increasing pressure with the government shutdown breaking the all-time record for longest shutdown in U.S. history. Under that much stress, who can remember complicated answers like “no, I am not and have never been a traitor to the country I’m in charge of right now.”

Adding to the increasingly teetering tower of “uh oh” for the President is the legendary Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein, who is saying that sources have told him the Mueller report is about as bad for Trump as it could be.

Distracting people will petty jabs about the kind of drinking you loved from Brett Kavanaugh isn’t going to cut it this time, Mr. President. But at least in the future maybe he can say that he never claimed to not be a Russian agent against the U.S. You know, from his jail cell.

Meanwhile, everybody is going to rub this in his face.

Don’t ask Republicans. They’ll just pretend to be insulted and then won’t answer the question.
