MSNBC news anchor Hallie Jackson said on Monday that President Trump’s morning tweetstorm reminded her that the last time the president launched as vituperative an attack, one of his associates pled guilty to federal campaign finance violations.

“Remember the last time he did this kind of tweet storm? One day later we found out about his former lawyer Michael Cohen’s guilty plea,” Jackson said. Cohen admitted in federal court to buying the silence of two women who had had affairs with then-candidate Trump, and doing so at Trump’s direction.

“Here’s what the president is saying today,” Jackson continued, quoting Trump’s attacks on Cohen and special counsel Robert Mueller while defending political operative Roger Stone. “‘They only want lies. The truth is bad for their mission.'”

MSNBC White House correspondent Peter Alexander agreed with Jackson that Trump was likely trying to obstruct justice by sending a message to Stone and others caught up in Mueller’s probe.

Time magazine published the photograph one week into a federal election campaign with Trudeau's Liberal Party in a tight contest against the Conservatives led by Andrew Scheer.

Trudeau, 47, whose party won a landslide victory in 2015, has already been under attack for an ethics lapse and other controversies.

The black-and-white photograph shows Trudeau, then 29, wearing a turban and robes with his face, neck and hands darkened at a gala party in 2001.

While dyslexia has been mentioned now and then as one of the reasons Donald Trump is so ignorant of what it takes to govern in a free society, I want to explore it as foundational to his inability to learn and grow while in office—and also as a way to link disparate troubling elements in his makeup.
