“Fuck My Life”: Trump Aides Respond To Comey Conspiracy Tweets

"At least that’s behind us.” When alerted to his apparent suspicions of Oval Office surveillance, the official replied in a text message, “fml.”

So on Thursday we learned that Donald Trump does not in fact have tapes of his conversations with the FBI Director he definitely didn't fire for investigating the administration's ties to the Kremlin. And that's too bad. Because it sure as shit would have been funny to listen to Trump actually say "I need loyalty. I expect loyalty." Of course we all knew he was bluffing. James Comey certainly knew it even though, like the rest of us, he was really hoping the recordings existed ("Lordy, I hope there are tapes"). As we wrote when Trump admitted he didn't record his interactions with Comey, this was a bluff gone horribly awry. One reader suggested it was a "free roll" and in a certain sense that's accurate. But do consider our response to that reader's comment: Well, unless credibility counts. "It wasn't just another bluff from Trump; it was another bluff that was called and that continued to chip away at Trump's honesty and credibility, for no discernible benefit," WaPo wrote this afternoon, underscoring our point before adding that "Trump appears to have not only done something dishonest that undermines his credibility going forward, but it didn't even work."

    Chipping away at his integrity? Is there any of that left? This is a man with such a relationship with the truth that if he said I had to drink water to survive I’d weld all the taps in my house closed.

    ‘But then, unprompted, he floated another possibility: U.S. intelligence or law enforcement officials might have his office bugged.”

    Who says Kushner or Bannon didn’t “make” or “have” tapes? Trump only stated that HE didn’t. And he’s a fucking liar anyway. Why believe THIS, since you can’t believe ANYTHING the asshole says?
