I Sure Picked the Wrong Week to Stop Sniffing Glue

In the past 24 yours, Trump, and his new lawyer, Rudolph William Louis Giuliani have admitted to hush money payments to Stormy Daniels (Stephanie Clifford) after months of denying everything.

It appears that they are under the misapprehension that the investigation is being run by New York County District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr.,* and so have forgotten basic rules of behavior when one is under criminal investigation:
  1. Shut the f%$# up!
  2. See rule 1.
  3. Seriously, see rule 1!
In any case, path the popcorn:
President Trump on Thursday directly contradicted his earlier statements that he knew of no payment to Stormy Daniels, the pornographic film actress who says she had an affair with him.

Mr. Trump said he paid a monthly retainer to his former lawyer and fixer, Michael D. Cohen, and suggested that the payment by Mr. Cohen to the actress could not be considered a campaign contribution.

The president’s comments reiterated an explosive announcement late Wednesday by one of his recently-hired attorneys, Rudolph W. Giuliani, who said on Fox News that the president reimbursed Mr. Cohen for the payment to the actress Stephanie Clifford, who performs as Stormy Daniels. Though Mr. Giuliani described his interview as part of a strategy, the disclosure caught several Trump advisers by surprise, sending some scrambling on Thursday morning to determine how to confront the situation.

In three Twitter posts Thursday morning, the president repeated some of what Mr. Giuliani said a day earlier, specifically that Mr. Trump repaid a $130,000 payment Mr. Cohen made to Ms. Clifford just days before the presidential election in 2016.

Mr. Giuliani and Mr. Trump said this removed the question of whether it was a campaign finance violation. Mr. Trump also continued to deny the affair.
Seriously, when you combine Trump and Giuliani there must have been some sort of idiot bully event horizon.

*See Cyrus Vance, Jr.'s history with Harvey Weinstein & the Trump SoHo investigation. This guy really does not want to investigate rich people.
