QOTD: the craziest crazy

QOTD: the craziest crazy
by digby


It's been quite a day for wild quotes from Trump world. So, I'll just share a couple from the Wolff book and then the craziest of crazy.

First this:

Trump would speculate on the flaws of his staff after hanging up the phone with them. "Bannon was disloyal (not to mention he always looks like shit). Priebus was weak (not to mention he was short — a midget)," Wolff recalls Trump's reflections. "Kushner was a suck-up. Sean Spicer was stupid (and looks terrible too). Conway was a crybaby. Jared and Ivanka should never have come to Washington."

sounds like him

Trump asked Hope Hicks, the White House communications director who had dated former campaign manage Corey Lewandowski, why she was worried about Lewandowski's bad press after he got fired. "You've already done enough for him,” Trump apparently said. “You're the best piece of tail he'll ever have"

Hicks and Trump had a very close relationship, and Trump's inner circle saw her as something of a daughter to the president. "[Hope] Hicks was in fact thought of as Trump’s real daughter, while Ivanka was thought of as his real wife,


yikes...

Trump used derogatory language to express his anger toward Sally Yates. “Trump conceived an early, obsessive antipathy for Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates,” the book reads. “She was, he steamed, ‘such a c---.’”

That figures. He fired her the first chance he got. And he didn't believe her about Flynn which got him into big trouble.

But he gets by with a little help from his friends. This is looney tunes Alex Jones commenting on Trump's tweet that he has a bigger "button" than Kim Jong Un:

ALEX JONES (HOST): Now the media went into conniption fits and the headlines from MSNBC are Trump’s sexual obsessions may destroy the earth.

They’re the ones saying hey we got a bigger nuclear button than you, we got a bigger arsenal, more powerful, and it works.

Nothing to do with the media trying to say the president has small genitals.

And by the way he doesn’t even have small hands, and by the way that’s a cliche, and a wives' tale, and not even true as well.

Medical doctors will tell you it’s the feet size. But the point is -- that it’s more comparable.

And that’s not even an exact metric.


So sweet...
