Donald Trump is more guilty of projection than perhaps anyone in this era. He claimed the election was rigged against him, to distract from the fact that he knew Russia was rigging it for his benefit. After the public figured out he was on drugs, he insisted that Hillary Clinton take a drug test. Now Trump is indicating that he fears he’s going to go to prison, because he’s projecting by demanding that everyone else go there.
Trump posted this insane and misspelled tweet this morning: “Crooked Hillary Clinton’s top aid, Huma Abedin, has been accused of disregarding basic security protocols. She put Classified Passwords into the hands of foreign agents. Remember sailors pictures on submarine? Jail! Deep State Justice Dept must finally act? Also on Comey & others.” As always, his mangled idiotic use of the English language makes it difficult to figure out exactly what he’s saying, but we’ll take a shot.
It seems like Trump is calling for Hillary Clinton, her assistant Huma Abedin, former FBI Director James Comey, and some other unnamed people to go to prison, for imaginary reasons. This tweet is felony obstruction of justice and felony witness intimidation, as Comey is a material witness in the current obstruction of justice case against Trump. But the real good news here is that Trump is truly rattled.
Donald Trump always falls back on desperately attacking Hillary Clinton and James Comey whenever he’s worried that he’s doomed. By calling for them to go to prison, he’s giving away that he is afraid that he’s going to prison soon. It’s also another reminder that Trump is a lawless criminal thug who will happily burn the American democracy to the ground if the Resistance doesn’t keep fighting his every move in 2018. At least now we know rattled this coward is.
