He, like new Attorney General Bill Barr, is a legal genius. I compared him to a bomb defusal expert - somebody who understands how to plan for every possible angle of attack.
And he is reviled by narrative-munchers for it.
If you haven’t read it, I strongly suggest doing so.
“He’s entitled to a far better location”.
Why would President Trump say this to an enemy?
BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN TRUMP HAS TO *LIKE* HIM.
Yet Trump clearly does.
They will not watch this clip. They will not read RR’s speeches or watch his interviews. They’ll just parrot fatface talking points because it makes them feel like they know what’s going on.
Unlike the narrative-munchers though, I actively sought to remedy my ignorance - and watched Barr’s full Senate confirmation hearing.
Now, in this phase, Trump needs a legal expert AG, so he hired a semi-retired former AG with no puppet strings and no future career aspirations.
Exactly the type of guy who can clean things up without any qualms.
He has met with DAG Rod Rosenstein several times to give advice during Rosenstein’s tenure at the department.
Trump just keeps accidentally hiring enemies to put them in incredibly dangerous positions. Such a dummy!
There is a ton of behind the scenes information floating around as well - storylines about Felix Sater, Michael Cohen, Oleg Deripaska, etc.
But I’m smart enough to recognize who is worth trusting and who isn’t.
And it sure as fuck ain’t the self-interested narrative engineers.
