The Daily GOP Ignominious: Trumpism (Hannity, Vicente Fox, Maddow, The New York Times)

As I watched the Rachel Maddow /show last night, and as you may have watched, she interrupted the planned flow of her show for a breaking segment. The New York times reported last night that Mike Flynn told Trump and company he was under FBI investigation before Trump appointed Flynn to head the NNational Security Council.

Here is the post-commercial break segment. It is less than three minutes in duration as I am certain MSNBC producers chose to restrict their comment and reporting to what the New York Times reported. 

Earlier in the day, Trump literally hijacked a US Coast Guard commencement service with classic Trump narcissism and defensive posturing. How very crass!  

The New York Times

WASHINGTON — Michael T. Flynn told President Trump’s transition team weeks before the inauguration that he was under federal investigation for secretly working as a paid lobbyist for Turkey during the campaign, according to two people familiar with the case.
Despite this warning, which came about a month after the Justice Department notified Mr. Flynn of the inquiry, Mr. Trump made Mr. Flynn his national security adviser. The job gave Mr. Flynn access to the president and nearly every secret held by American intelligence agencies.
Mr. Flynn’s disclosure, on Jan. 4, was first made to the transition team’s chief lawyer, Donald F. McGahn II, who is now the White House counsel. That conversation, and another one two days later between Mr. Flynn’s lawyer and transition lawyers, shows that the Trump team knew about the investigation of Mr. Flynn far earlier than has been previously reported.

Though somewhat unrelated, I cannot help but involved a few items related to Trumpism. First, Jake Tapper's on-camera retort toTrumps silly whine of yesterday. One item is from the former President of Mexico; the other item is from the nation's number one Trump radio and TV mouthpiece Sean (fake video) Hannity.

CNN's Jake Tapper offered a pretty good response to Trump's childish whining.

He whined like a sleepy toddler upset about dropping his pacifier from his won mouth.

Lying Hannity

Vincente Fox
The Trump reality show is providing far more entertainment for his sycophant supporters than they could have imagined.
