Trump's laughably bad Axios interview turned into an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm

I’d love to sic Susie on him.


Shouldn’t it be “Curb Your Trumpthusiam”?


When he called him “Mr. President” in the beginning it hit me: this guy really is you guys’ president, isn’t he? And he has to be afforded the respect of the office as if he was the real deal, doesn’t he? Sorry, I know that intellectually of course but I still haven’t internalised it.

This guy sits at the Resolute Desk. In the Oval Office. In the White House. Where Washington and Lincoln and Roosevelt and Obama sat.* For real. And he will forever be in that lineage of people.


*I am aware that the desk is probably younger than Washington but I’m not gonna google it right now, so don’t @ me


I think Trump is funny enough by himself. If he were a comedian I would laugh but now I’m just stunned.

I’m tired of the “mandatory” courtesy to him. He is an idiot and a dangerous idiot, and the sooner we start treating him that way the better.


Blessed are the cheesemakers


As for “Florida [deaths] are going down”:
We all knew Trump was lying and he knew he was lying at the point when he qualified his statement with "yeah :sidelook: It's going-- It leveled out and it's going down, that's my report as of yesterday." Trump saw an opening. His brain flashed: “Swan doesn’t have perfect information/recall and, even if he does, I can claim access to preferred knowledge.” It was just another version of “people are saying.”

Swan needed to do a Curb Your Enthusiasm stare-down: “Are you sure, Mr. President?”
