[Ed. – Yeah, Trump should have acted … wait, how does Boot think a man legitimately protesting his innocence is supposed to act?]
Trump has no one but himself to blame. There would never have been a special counsel in the first place if he had not fired FBI Director James B. Comey and announced that he did so to stop the investigation of the “Russia thing.” And there would not have been such a widespread presumption that the president was guilty if he did not act so guilty. No one forced Trump to talk like a mob boss, urging his aides to “stay strong” and not turn “rat,” while vilifying the FBI agents and prosecutors investigating him. Trump could have earned more favorable media coverage if he had simply refrained from nasty personal attacks and vowed his full cooperation to uncover the Russian plot against the United States.
It is pretty rich now to hear Trump & Co. denounce the media focus on documented links between the Trump campaign and Russia after they spent two years spinning absurd conspiracy theories centered on a nonexistent “deep state.”
