Tuesday Night Massacre

This afternoon the president had his personal bodyguard, not a government employee but his longtime henchman, deliver a firing letter to the FBI director who was leading the investigation into Trump's possible collusion with Russia.

Bloomberg is reporting that Trump has promised Senator Lindsay Graham a certified letter avowing Trump's innocence on the Russia allegations. Does this president believe that paying a bit more to send a certified letter somehow certifies the truth of the contents?

Instead it tends to indicate the president's slender grasp on reality.

Toobin, from a few months ago

Trump and the GOP have a record of killing messengers. Note the firing of EPA personnel who were disloyally reporting on climate change.
