nothing new to report about the man in the White House

Oh.  Yeah.  The big gossip coming out of Washington.  And.  Wait.  Wait.  Brash talk from Donald Trump, assailing his key aides?  Like, we can’t see this in his history anywhere.
(He does have that bit of Lyndon Johnson doing important business with anyone he wants to powertrip over while doing important business by doing so while sitting on the toilet about him.)

It turned out to be a preview of even more cutting remarks Mr. Trump would make two days later in an interview with The New York Times: an extraordinary public expression of dissatisfaction with one of his top aides based on Mr. Sessions’s decision in March to recuse himself from the expanding federal investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.

Despite Mr. Trump’s avowal in the interview that he would not have picked Mr. Sessions if he had known he would recuse himself, Mr. Sessions said on Thursday that he intended to serve “as long as that is appropriate.” And a spokeswoman for Mr. Trump, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, tried to moderate her boss’s remarks, telling reporters later, “Clearly, he has confidence in him, or he would not be the attorney general.”

But even if Mr. Sessions remains in his job, the relationship between him and Mr. Trump — the Alabama lawyer and the Queens real estate developer, an odd couple bound by a shared conviction that illegal immigration is destroying America — is unlikely to ever be the same, according to a half-dozen people close to Mr. Trump. And this is not the typical Trump administration feud.

I can’t wait to see the National Enquirer dossier on Jeff Sessions any day now, and how Donald Trump is just “leading the charge” somehow, and a new demonization of Jeff Sessions to match that of everyone else.

Mr. Stone listed a chain of events Mr. Trump often ticks off against Mr. Sessions: Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein took over the Russia investigation after Mr. Sessions’s recusal, which led to the appointment of Robert S. Mueller III, a former F.B.I. director, as special counsel, which, in turn, led to irrepressible presidential rage.

“The president initially bonded with Sessions because he saw him as a tough guy,” said Mr. Stone, who has urged Mr. Sessions to investigate Obama-era officials instead of Trump campaign operatives. “Now he’s saying: ‘Where’s my tough guy? Why doesn’t he have my back?’”

“There’s a lack of aggressiveness with Sessions, unless it involves chasing people for smoking pot,” he added, referring to the attorney general’s recent focus on marijuana offenses largely ignored under President Barack Obama.

Sure. Like you can’t see from his record what Session’s priorities as Attorney General would be.  But Wait.  Where does this lead Trump on the pot issue?  If Trump could get new appointee Tommy Chong (granted, not “tough” in any traditional definition of the term) to promise to do everything in his power to sweep away the “Russian mess”, would this end the Drug War?

Like, I want to get something out of the Trump mess, don’t you?
