Trump is reported to be consumed by rage over the fact that his son Donald Jr. has been caught up in the Russia scandal, while the White House has kept the President hidden from any domestic public appearances as they fear what might happen if they let him out in public.
The Washington Post reported, “President Trump — who has been hidden from public view since returning last weekend from a divisive international summit — is enraged that the Russia cloud still hangs over his presidency and is exasperated that his oldest son and namesake has become engulfed by it, said people who have spoken with him this week.”
Trump still believes that the Russia scandal is a Democratic plot, and his family is urging him to do what he does best, blame an underling for his problems and fire someone. The person whose neck is on the line is White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, who is most definitely not the person who is responsible for this mess.
Since Donald Trump refuses to take any personal responsibility for his own behavior or that of his staff and family, someone else is going to have to take the fall for the Russia scandal. The Russia investigation is getting to Trump. The President is even less stable than usual, and Republicans are getting sick of the daily Trump world drama that prevents them from accomplishing anything.
Donald Trump is enraged, which means that it is only a matter of time until he explodes and goes completely off the rails, which is why the White House is keeping him hidden. A publicly talking Trump is a president who will give investigators enough rope to impeach him.
