President “Very Cool Dragon Energy Brother” was nice enough to call into state television on Thursday morning for what was billed as an “interview”, but what quickly (and predictably) devolved into an absurd ramble about conspiracies, porn stars and the Justice Department.
I will be interviewed on @foxandfriends at 8:00 A.M. Enjoy!

“Enjoy!” we did, Mr. President.
This was undoubtedly one of the more bizarre spectacles America has witnessed from this President to date and the cast of Fox & Friends clearly realized it as they were visibly bewildered throughout what sounded like the coked-up rantings of a paranoid schizophrenic.
Listen to this (literally) breathless diatribe about the media that finds Trump explaining how he stays “on the ball” and how he manages to preserve his “sanity”:
Here he is losing is fucking mind (and I mean literally shrieking) about the DoJ which isn’t “doing its job”:
In a truly unfortunate tirade about his beleaguered personal lawyer, he (accidentally) admitted that Cohen represents him the Stormy Daniels case and on top of that, his “tiny fraction” comment seems to be a tacit admission that most of what the two men have talked about isn’t covered under attorney-client privilege:
Here he is talking about how “they” come in “at five or six in the morning” and they “undo the locks”:
And here he is on “barrels and boxes” of cash to Iran:
As you can probably surmise from the looks on the faces of his Fox & Friends sycophants, this was a disaster of an interview for any number of reasons and indeed, it seems like he may have just stumbled into more legal trouble.
And after Trump goes off on the FBI's leadership under Comey as "crooked," Fox & Friends ends the interview, saying they could talk to him all day but that he probably has work to do.

The reactions from the peanut gallery are all hilarious, but far and away the best Twitter response was the comparison to Ray Liotta in Goodfellas when Henry Hill’s side coke business is going off the rails…
