Rosenstein and Trump Bromance Meeting Today

Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General of the United States of America, is going to the White House today. The news reading vipers are hoping that President Trump will fire him. Apparently, the vipers (news media) don’t have enough to talk about for the weekend to come. The PsychoDrama Circus that the Democrats have made of the Kavanaugh hearings won’t fill up the 24 hour news cycle. Thus, the breathless expectation of being able to declare “We break in to the heartrending story of Christine’s alleged grope to bring you this firing.” But, what if the news media is wrong (lol)?

“The Washington Post” reported on Trump’s late afternoon press conference and it sounds like the meeting tomorrow may be a bromance meeting rather than a firing. From the article:

President Trump said Wednesday he would prefer to keep Rod Rosenstein as his deputy attorney general and that he might postpone a high-stakes meeting set for Thursday to discuss the future of Rosenstein’s job.

At a rare news conference, Trump said he and Rosenstein already had a “good talk,” and he would “certainly prefer” keeping him in the No. 2 spot at the Justice Department.

“My preference would be to keep him, and let him finish up,” Trump said.

As in “finish up” the Mueller probe? Hmmm. There is more in the “Post” article”

The president suggested he was still comfortable with Rosenstein staying in the job in part because he was so skeptical of Andrew McCabe — a frequent target of Trump.

“He said he never said it, he said he doesn’t believe it, he said he has a lot of respect for me,” Trump said Wednesday of Rosenstein. “He’s very nice, and we’ll see.”

Remember what Rosenstein allegedly didn’t say? In case you have forgotten, here is the report from “NBCNews.com”:

In a May, 16, 2017 meeting at a secure facility at the Justice Department — one week after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey — Rosenstein was arguing with Andrew McCabe, then the acting director of the FBI, about the president, according to a senior Justice Department official.

“Well, what do you want me to do, Andy, wear a wire?” Rosenstein asked at the meeting, which also included FBI lawyer Lisa Page and four career DOJ officials, according to the senior official. One of the career civil servants was Scott Schools, who would later go on to sign off on the firing of McCabe, the official said.

And, there was discussion about removing the President using the 25th amendment. Wouldn’t surprise me one bit if Andrew McCabe leaked this to trouble the water in the Trump/Rosenstein relationship. Now, you may ask, why am I so confident that Don and Rod have a good relationship? This morning on “Fox and Friends”, Brian Kilmeade interviewed Ian Prior. Ian Prior is the former Department of Justice Deputy Director of Public Affairs. In the video what’s more interesting is what Kilmeade says than what Prior says.

Rosenstein sought Kilmeade out and told him not to believe what he reads and hears? I sat bolt upright in bed this morning. I totally get that neither Trump or Rosenstein don’t trust.

If Trump puts of the meeting with Rod until next week, so much the better. The President and the Deputy Attorney General may be playing the media and that’s fine with me. It’s like grownups messing with children. Now, if someone could just get those nasty toddlers on the Senate Judiciary Committee some blankets and juice boxes, our country can get back to being great again.
