How does one even begin to describe what happened this morning outside the White House?

Donald Trump, reading from large print Sharpie notes, yelled to reporters "I WANT NOTHING!"

If Gordon Sondland's testimony was this year's stupid Watergate's John Dean moment, then Trump's appearance outside the White House was the "Pray with me, Henry" meltdown.

Trump yelled his notes to reporters: "I say to the Ambassador in response: 'I want nothing, I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo. Tell Zelensky, President Zelensky, to do the right thing.'"

And regarding Sondland, of course Trump doesn't know him. "I don't know him very well. I have not spoken to him much. This is not a man I know well. Seems like a nice guy though. But I don't know him well. He was with other candidates."

Trump is headed to Austin, Texas to tour an Apple factory. He's got Ivanka with him as a minder.
