Trump begins interview w/Hannity by touting that Putin cleared him of collusion & said he doesn't have blackmail material.

"First of all, he said there was no collusion whatsoever. They have no information on Trump... I thought that President Putin was very, very strong." #lulz
Trump is vague about what exactly he discussed with Putin during their private meeting, brags about immiserating Iran via terminating the nuclear agreement.
TRUMP: "I know President Obama has said that global warming is our biggest problem, but I would say that nuclear warming is our biggest problem by the factor of about 5 million."
TRUMP blatantly lies about NATO: "We are paying 91% of the cost of keeping Europe safe. So the EU takes total advantage of us... we defended them for essentially nothing. And I said 'it's not going to be that way anymore.'" (The US pays 22% of the cost of NATO.)
Trump says he threatened to pull out of NATO: "I raised $44b & Secretary General said he raised $44b & it was only because of Trump. Otherwise, I said 'we are going to have to start worrying about our relationship w/NATO.'" (NATO members agreed to raise military spending in 2014)
Hannity puts words in Trump's mouth in attempt to justify his attacks on the media as "enemies of the people."
Trump savages Strzok, suggests Obama was part of deep state conspiracy to prevent him from getting elected

"He thought Hillary Clinton was going to win...frankly, when I won, he said, 'this is the biggest deal'... it's a very dishonest deal... if you think Obama didn't know..."
Trump says he's "fascinated" by Putin's preposterous idea that Mueller should work with him.

"I was fascinated by it...his prosecutors would prosecute it, & he said that Robert Mueller's people could go with them." (Mueller has charged more than two dozen Russians with crimes.)
TRUMP is totally delusional & supportive of Putin's idea that Mueller's team should prosecute Russian hackers in Russia.

"He's willing to take those 12 people...willing to let Mueller's people go over there. Do an investigation, people working together w/Russian investigators"
Trump closes his interview with @seanhannity by alluding to the possibility of nuclear war with Russia, and lamenting that Paul Manafort, "who is clearly a nice man," is being treated "like Al Capone."

"It's just a sad thing. It's a very sad thing for our country," POTUS says.

TRUMP: "[Haley] has been at the UN right from the beginning, & worked w/us on the campaign...it has been a long time, very intense & she told me probably six months ago, 'you know maybe at the end of a 2-year period, but at the end of the year I want to take a little time off.'"
HALEY: "I'm such a lucky girl to have been able to lead the state that raised me and to serve a country I love so very much has really been a blessing, and I want to thank you for that... the US Is strong again. The US is strong in a way it should make all Americans proud."
Nikki Haley describes Jared Kushner as "a hidden genius that no one understands."

TRUMP on Rod Rosenstein: "I actually have a good relationship other than, there's been no collusion folks!"
TRUMP attacks Democrats over Kavanaugh process: "The way they tortured him and his family, I thought it was a disgrace. It was one of the most disgraceful performances I've ever seen."

He then lies and says "there was no corroboration of any kind" for Dr Ford's accusation.
TRUMP: "I think a lot of Democrats are going to vote Republican because I have many friends that are Democrats. The main base of the Democrats have shifted so far left that we'll end up being Venezuela...I think a lot of Democrats are going to be voting Republican on Nov. 6."

Trump is about to deliver a speech in Topeka. Follow me for a video thread.
TRUMP: "I want to thank our incredible Republican senators for refusing to back down in the face of the Democrats' shameless campaign of political & personal destruction... radical Democrats launched a disgraceful campaign to resist & demolish right from the beginning."
TRUMP: "If you allow wrong people to get into office, things could change. They could change fast. We will not let that happen. It can go very quickly. We cannot let that happen. You don't hand matches to an arsonist and you don't get power to an angry left-wing mob."

Ahead of @SenatorCollins' speech on the Senate floor, protesters chant "believe women!" from the gallery
COLLINS is using her speech to criticize opponents of Kavanaugh as "frenzied," "spreading outright falsehoods," and representing "special interest groups."
COLLINS: "The president has broad discretion to consider a nominee's philosophy, whereas my duty as a senator is to focus on the nominee's qualifications as long as that nominee's philosophy is within the mainstream."

It sure sounds like she is going to announce a yes vote.

.@ChuckGrassley, who is struggling to read a statement on the Senate floor, baselessly accuses @SenFeinstein of "shameful" handling of Dr Ford's accusation because she didn't violate Ford's wishes and make an issue of it immediately
Grassley flat out lies, claims Ford's accusations are "refuted."
Grassley, getting angry, says "resistance" in a very odd way, closes by urging senators to "say no to mob rule by voting to confirm Judge Kavanaugh." #wut
