He's such a worthless trash person; since the interview amounted little more to him flop-sweating over the same coached answers he gave the NYT, this is about the "best" you can expect out of a runaway AI disguised as a greasy manchild trying to handle the world's largest social media platform.

Did he say he was going to resign? Nope.

Did he duck the idea of testifying before Congress? You know it.

Did he give the usual empty platitudes about how he and FB need to "do better?" Of course he did.

Did he whine and complain about how hard it would be to try and corral this monster he's willfully unleashed and fought so hard to leave vulnerable to these kinds of messes? Do you even have to ask?

Please keep crashing and burning, you non-blinking turd.

We're about 2.5 years away from having a Presidential Boxing Match rather than a Presidential Debate, so that's fun.

Dowd's resignation is also likely just one part of a broader legal team shakeup Trump is said to be considering. The president is reportedly weighing whether to fire White House lawyer Ty Cobb, who has largely advocated for a more cooperative approach toward the probe. Trump recently hired Joseph diGenova, a controversial former federal prosecutor known for peddling conspiracy theories about the Department of Justice and the FBI.

Trump reportedly made the decision without consulting with his top advisers and after speaking to friends and loyalists on the phone.

Dowd's resignation and the impending shakeup indicates that Trump will likely increase his offensive against Mueller and the Russia probe, which he has called a "hoax" and a "witch hunt."

Why?


He's a former VP basically threatening the current president with physical violence (for the second time). There are much better ways to handle things; they're both 70+ YO guys who have never been in a fight so they should both save the tough guy act.

Threatening physical violence 50 years in the past. It's probably a dumb thing to say in a normal political environment, but it doesn't even rank in the top 90% of things Trump has said.

So what? Trump bein president destroyed any special treatment of the office, not to mention how republicans already did away with that idea with how they treated Obama.
