We’ve said jokingly that to make every decision, Donald Trump weighs all the options and consults experts to find the best course of action… and then does the opposite.
But based on this latest reported tactic, we’re starting to believe it’s true!
Because according to Washington Post reporter Robert Costa, the POTUS is going to respond to fired FBI director James Comey‘s testimony by doing something no lawyer in his right mind would advise.
He’s going to live-tweet it.
Costa told MSNBC on Tuesday:
“I was just talking to some White House officials this morning and their view is that the president himself wants to be the messenger, his own warrior, his own lawyer, his own spokesman.”
All that and his own worst enemy too! Costa continued:
“Some outside people, some surrogates will be available, but the president is expected to be tweeting on Thursday in response to Comey, not to stay quiet during the testimony because he himself wants to be the one driving the process.”
So yeah. This is a great idea, Mr. President!
See Costa’s interview, as well as the opinions of other experts (below)!
Do YOU think Trump will shoot himself in the foot? Or will his team be able to talk him out of it??
Guess we’ll find out on Thursday…
