I joined Alexis Conran and former MP Nick de Bois on talkRadio for our weekly irreverent stroll across Trump-Land, from Trump’s “war zone” lie about London to the latest pitfalls over Trump’s sexual encounter with Stormy Daniels.
We start on a serious note about Trump’s speech to the National Rifle Association, in which he distorted a report about knife crime in the UK:
Trump was reworking a theme that I’ve heard from a lot of folks in the States — the problem is that there are bad guys who use knives and baseball bats and maybe their fists, and if we just strap on our six-shooters, we can stop those knives.
We chat about the latest difficulty for Trump — feeding his anger and public performances — over the investigation of his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen, with its effects on the Trump-Russia inquiry. Then it’s to the lighter terrain of a Nobel Peace Prize for Trump over his self-declared solving of the Korean issue: “We can well have a guy who is being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize at the same time that he is being impeached and possibly facing criminal charges.”
Finally, we have to take heed of the renewed stormfront over Trump and Stormy Daniels, whipped up by the high-profile backfire of the campaign of Trump and attorney Rudy Giuliani to make a $130,000 payoff go away: “You have now tied Trump to the serious issue of an election finance violation.”
