Prznint Stupid thought he could deal with The Little Kremlin-on-the-Potomac investigation like a lawsuit from a common porn star:

One of the crazy nuggets in a deeply reported book by the N.Y. Times’ Michael Schmidt — “Donald Trump v. the United States,” out tomorrow — is that Tweety McTreason mulled the idea of “settling” with special counsel Robert Mueller.

What he’s saying: “At one point, as the investigation seemed to be intensifying,” Schmidt writes, Trump told White House counsel Don McGahn “that there was nothing to worry about because if it was zeroing in on him, he would simply settle with Mueller. He would settle the case, as if he were negotiating terms in a lawsuit.”

Per @nytmike’s new book, “Trump told McGahn there was nothing to worry about because if it was zeroing in, he would simply settle with Mueller… as if he were negotiating terms in a lawsuit.”

Someone this dumb stays a billionaire only by crime, or isn’t a billionaire at all.
