Donald Trump is ‘lashing out’ at everyone, including Mike Pence & Mitch McConnell

I haven’t watched the news in a few days because that’s one of the Christmas gifts I’m giving to myself: a sense of quiet Christmas relief by completely ignoring Donald Trump’s daily/hourly tantrums over being the biggest, suckiest loser in history. Some people expressed hope that Trump would fly down to Mar-a-Lago this week and simply never return to the White House. At first I was like “well, that would be anticlimactic” but now I really hope he does that. Because he’s currently sitting in the White House, filling up his diaper and wallowing in some of the craziest delusions we’ve seen thus far.

President Trump, in his final days, is turning bitterly on virtually every person around him, griping about anyone who refuses to indulge conspiracy theories or hopeless bids to overturn the election, several top officials tell Axios. Targets of his outrage include Vice President Pence, chief of staff Mark Meadows, White House counsel Pat Cipollone, Secretary of State Pompeo and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Trump thinks everyone around him is weak, stupid or disloyal — and increasingly seeks comfort only in people who egg him on to overturn the election results. We cannot stress enough how unnerved Trump officials are by the conversations unfolding inside the White House.

Top officials are trying to stay away from the West Wing right now. Trump is lashing out, and everyone is in the blast zone: At this point, if you’re not in the “use the Department of Homeland Security or the military to impound voting machines” camp, the president considers you weak and beneath contempt. Trump is fed up with Cipollone, his counsel. Some supporters of Cipollone are worried that Trump is on the brink of removing him and replacing him with a fringe loyalist.

A source who spoke to Trump said the president was complaining about Pence and brought up a Lincoln Project ad that claims that Pence is “backing away” from Trump. This ad has clearly got inside Trump’s head, the source said. Trump views Pence as not fighting hard enough for him — the same complaint he uses against virtually everybody who works for him and has been loyal to him. Pence’s role on Jan. 6 has begun to loom large in Trump’s mind, according to people who’ve discussed the matter with him. Trump would view Pence performing his constitutional duty — and validating the election result — as the ultimate betrayal.

A new fixation: Trump has even been asking advisers whether they can get state legislatures to rescind their electoral votes. When he’s told no, he lashes out even more, said a source who discussed the matter with the president. And in an Oval meeting Monday night night, Trump spoke with House Republicans about voting to overturn the result on Jan. 6 — a desperate vote that even Trump has privately acknowledged he’s bound to lose.

A source told Axios that Jared Kushner, who yesterday participated in a tree-planting ceremony in Jerusalem Forest’s Grove of Nations, “is focused on the Middle East.” It’s a perfect visual encapsulation of Kushner’s absence — on the other side of the world, planting a tree with Bibi and accepting plaudits, while Trump discusses mayhem with Sidney Powell.

Apparently, Trump has been screaming and crying about Mitch McConnell too – for the past four years, Trump was Mitch’s puppet as much as Putin’s puppet, and it’s only now that Trump realizes that Mitch will not do anything to help him at this point. CNN also has a report which repeats much of this Axios story, with some bonus quotes about how White House staffers fear that Trump will go on a firing spree in his last month, and that he will legitimately barricade himself in the White House on Inauguration Day (LMAO). Delusional Don is also telling every f–king person he comes into contact with that he “won” the election in a “landslide.” My God.

Oh, and CNN says that Trump is still loosely planning on going to Mar-a-Lago this week (although that could change) and staffers are really worried that he’s going to start calling and meeting with people his advisers are unaware of, people who will feed his delusions, or perhaps violent white supremacists.

When even Pat Robertson is jumping from the sinking Trump dinghy… (also, this is f–king delusional too).
