Trump knows his legal team of 'fools' is a national embarrassment: report
White House

Donald Trump has a new set of scapegoats for what is turning into the colossal embarrassment that is his effort to overturn the will of the people and make a coup: his lawyers. When he needs to blame someone for his loss, that's who it will be. At least, that's what sources to NBC say.

He has "been complaining to aides and allies about his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and recently-removed lawyer Sidney Powell's over-the-top performances at a news conference at the Republican National Committee headquarters last week, these people said." Mr. Self-Awareness believes that the whole legal team is a bunch of "fools that are making him look bad," but whom he won't fire because "in essence, who knows?" He didn't have too much of an issue booting the woman. That despite the fact that Giuliani's claims are nearly as bonkers as hers.

What has disillusioned him about Giuliani is just so on point for who Trump is. It's that he literally looked bad in that press conference last week. "Trump was also not pleased with the optics of the brown substance, presumed to be hair dye or a makeup product, dripping down Giuliani's face during the nearly two-hour news conference Thursday, according to one of the sources familiar with the president's reaction."

Because Donald is the exemplar of how to do hair and makeup.
