Trump’s Interesting Words

I don’t believe it takes any skill at all to see that Donald Trump is not honest, changes facts, says whatever he feels regardless of the truth. It’s clear he doesn’t care. But  more often than not, he says things that reveal more than he wants to.

In the interview with the New York Times that was released yesterday, it’s fascinating what he says.

TRUMP: Look, Sessions gets the job. Right after he gets the job, he recuses himself.

BAKER: Was that a mistake?

TRUMP: Well, Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job, and I would have picked somebody else.

HABERMAN: He gave you no heads up at all, in any sense?

TRUMP: Zero. So Jeff Sessions takes the job, gets into the job, recuses himself. I then have — which, frankly, I think is very unfair to the president. How do you take a job and then recuse yourself? If he would have recused himself before the job, I would have said, “Thanks, Jeff, but I can’t, you know, I’m not going to take you.” It’s extremely unfair, and that’s a mild word, to the president.

First off, Jeff Session didn’t take the job as Trump suggests and then immediately recuse himself.

No, Jeff Sessions was confirmed on February 8 and didn’t recuse himself until March 2, 2017, after he was exposed by the Washington Post on March 1 to have met with Sergey Kislyak twice, which he had previously denied in his confirmation testimony.

Trump then says, “Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else.”

Well, if there was no collusion, and Jeff Sessions didn’t have anything going on with Russia, why would Sessions have told Trump “before he took the job” that he would or wouldn’t recused himself? It makes no sense to even think like that. An honest person would never even consider that, but a deceptive person in collusion would.  Especially if someone he counted on to be loyal turned on him.

Ironically, when you look at the statement Sessions gave in his recusal, he doesn’t take responsibility for recusing himself. He says in referring to the Department of Justice, “They said that since I had involvement with the campaign, I should not be involved in any campaign investigation.”   That’s as passive as you can get!  That’s a man who doesn’t want to take the fall and give excuses just like Trump. Two apples from the same cart.

They tell me I have to do this so I am.  Don’t blame me!

Trump obviously trusted Sessions to stick by him and NEVER (Trump’s word) recuse himself if they came under fire, which did not happen.  Why would Trump even expect that? That’s not the law of our country, but Trump seems to think he is always above the law, which he continued to reveal when he said later in the interview that the FBI reports to the president.  Um, no, that’s not correct Trump.   Time and time again, Trump he acts like he is an authoritarian, not the president of a democracy.

I do not believe Sessions will resign unless he believes it is in his own best interest. If he can stay for his own benefits, and stick it back to Trump any way he can, he most certainly will.  I don’t trust either of these men farther than I can see them.

It’s so ironic that all the people in the Trump campaign have been involved with Russia and oops, forgot to tell anyone.  A mistake?  No, and if you believe that, you are high risk to be a victim in your life. Please take my warning seriously.

    Maybe the reason Trump doesn’t think he is the leader of a democracy is because he was not elected in a democratic way but rather as a result of a highly flawed system with corruption such as gerrymandering and active voter suppression built into it?

      I’d be interested in hearing which of our presidents, according to this criteria, were ever elected in a democratic way. I see voter suppression, gerrymandering, starting before 2016? So, I am wondering what you mean.

      • Maya.N

        The US absolutely has problems relating to democracy and the issues I listed is some of the ones that no longer makes the country a full democracy but rather a “flawed” one according to the Economist Intelligence Unit’s democracy index and several other rankings. What makes it even worse in the case of Trump’s election is that he received 3 million fewer votes than his opponent. As much as I disagree with him it s not difficult to see why he doesn’t think of himself as a leader of a democracy and that he can bend the rules.

  • When I read Trump’s statements about Sessions, they read to me like “He didn’t do the job I hired him to do!” Since Sessions is still attorney general, the only way that makes sense is if he expected Sessions to preside over any Russia investigation (in other words, obstruct any such investigation). To me, it sounds like when he said he fired Comey because of Russia, and everyone went, “Did he just admit it?” He pretty much said he expected Sessions to have his back on Russia and then he didn’t have it. It also sounds like he thinks the president “hires” the AG. Doesn’t work that way.

    Looks like I’m a high risk of being a victim unfortunately, cause my interpretation of this:

    “Well, Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job, and I would have picked somebody else.”

    Was:

    “Since I, Trump, know Sessions never did anything wrong, there’s no reason he should have recused himself. However, if he had had some doubts and/or knew of his own misdeeds, he should have let me know that he was bowing out (and not provided me with a reason as to why he was bowing out), and then I wouldn’t have wasted time going through this whole process and could have put that energy somewhere else.”

    • That is to assume only guilty people recuse themselves. Guilt or innocence has no bearing on recusal. Only conflict of interest matters.

      • wttdl

        Oh, that makes sense! Something I hadn’t thought of as part of the equation.

    Trump has poor skills in abstract reasoning, probably because he is practically illiterate. In this blog post, I explain how Trump could have gotten a degree from an Ivy League university despite being practically illiterate. http://nottrivialbook.com/2017/01/20/can-donald-trump-read/
