Can a fish actually get rabies? Hey, it’s 2018, so any weird thing is probably possible. Now that he’s lost the House, and Robert Mueller is breathing down his neck, Donald Trump has begun flailing around like a proverbial fish, seemingly aware that he’s swiftly being backed into a corner. He’s also begun acting in more rabid fashion than ever, suggesting that whatever is left of his brain is further cracking.



For instance, even though the Republicans are going to retain the majority in the Senate no matter what, Donald Trump has become bizarrely frazzled over the prospect of losing Senate seats in Arizona and Florida. Over the weekend, as Democratic candidate Kyrsten Sinema pulled further ahead thanks to mail-in votes, Trump tweeted “Just out — in Arizona, SIGNATURES DON’T MATCH. Electoral corruption – Call for a new Election? We must protect our Democracy!” Wait, did he seriously just call for a new election?




Of course the “new election” thing was going to go nowhere, and by Monday night, Republican candidate Martha McSally had conceded, after acknowledging that there was no voter fraud in the state. But Trump’s freak-out about Florida, where the races for Senator and Governor are still in play, got even weirder.


Donald Trump posted this tweet, which might be his most deranged yet: “The Florida Election should be called in favor of Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis in that large numbers of new ballots showed up out of nowhere, and many ballots are missing or forged. An honest vote count is no longer possible-ballots massively infected. Must go with Election Night!” Did he just say infected? Why would that word even be on his mind? Maybe Trump really does have rabies.

Bafflement and derision in capital as US president in spat with Macron slams wine trade tariffs as ‘not fair’

A tweet by Donald Trump attacking the French president, Emmanuel Macron, and threatening a wine war with France, has left a sour taste in Paris. In a series of online comments lambasting Macron over nationalism and world wars, the US president rated the wine trade between France and the US as “not fair”.

On Trade, France makes excellent wine, but so does the U.S. The problem is that France makes it very hard for the U.S. to sell its wines into France, and charges big Tariffs, whereas the U.S. makes it easy for French wines, and charges very small Tariffs. Not fair, must change!

EU tariffs on wine are roughly 9p a bottle. Get a grip. https://t.co/0tkjV5neam

Matthew Whitaker’s appointment as Acting Attorney General is being challenged in court by the State of Maryland, which argues that the appointment was not lawful and that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is the rightful ascendant to the position, reports the New York Times. The lawsuit in question concerned a non-related Affordable Care Act matter.

A botched Israeli undercover operation in Gaza has lead to heavy fighting, says the Times. The United Nations envoy to the region, Nickolay Mladenov, warned both sides to back away from the brink of war.

National security adviser John Bolton said on Tuesday that an audio recording of journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s final hours in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul did not implicate Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, reports the Washington Post.

A new report by CSIS released on Monday identified hidden bases in North Korea that have the capability to deploy mobile missile launchers, says the Post. Although the bases are not necessarily indicative of North Korean breach of an agreement in June, it does cast doubt on the effectiveness of the summit between President Trump and Kim Jong-un.

Sources close to President Trump say that he is considering dismissing Secretary of Homeland Security  Kirstjen Nielsen because of the president’s belief that Nielsen is not effectively implementing his zero-tolerance immigration policies, reports the Times.

The Trump administration is considering asking the Afghan government to suspend the coming presidential elections as the U.S. seeks to engage the Taliban in peace talks to officially end the war, says the Wall Street Journal. Afghan president Ashraf Ghani reportedly does not support the idea.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Jerome Corsi abruptly bails on interview after getting dreaded phone call from Robert Mueller

Yesterday, far-right conspiracy theorist and Roger Stone ally Jerome Corsi announced that Special Counsel Robert Mueller informed him that he was just days away from being indicted in the Trump-Russia scandal. This morning, Corsi announced that he was expecting to get the phone call today about being indicted. Then he decided to sit down for an interview – only to have to abruptly cancel it after getting the dreaded phone call from Mueller’s office.



In a developing story, Jerome Corsi was supposed to give an interview to Daily Beast reporter Anna Schecter, but he had to blow it off at the last minute when his attorneys got a call from Mueller. Schecter then went on MSNBC and revealed this surreal series of events. It’s not known what specifically transpired during that phone call, but there are only a few possibilities.




The first and most obvious would be that Robert Mueller’s office called Jerome Corsi’s lawyers in order to inform them that he had been indicted and that he needed to surrender himself. Another possibility would be that Mueller’s office was contacting Corsi for some other reason, such as offering him a plea deal, or demanding that he stop doing interviews. Some have also floated the theoretical possibility that Corsi, a known liar and publicity hound, could merely be faking all of this for attention – but if so, he’s taking it dangerously far, even by his standards.


So now we await word on whether Jerome Corsi has indeed been called to surrender himself for arrest, and who else might be going down with him today. Corsi allegedly coordinated with Roger Stone and WikiLeaks, suggesting that anyone from Stone to Julian Assange could also be indicted – along with any number of other Trump-Russia people.
