Trump's lawyers have said preparing their client for an interview with special prosecutor Robert Mueller would be too time consuming for the busy, golf-playing president, but the Wall Street Journal reports that they actually have been preparing Trump for an interview.
Or at least they've tried to.
The Journal reports that Trump was only able to answer two questions during a four-hour interview.
Preparing Mr. Trump to testify would be a serious distraction to his work as president, eating into time he needs to deal with pressing global issues, Mr. Trump’s lawyers contend.
In an informal, four-hour practice session, Mr. Trump’s lawyers were only able to walk him through two questions, given the frequent interruptions on national-security matters along with Mr. Trump’s loquaciousness, one person familiar with the matter said.
"Mr Trump's loquaciousness."
That's an extraordinarily diplomatic way of saying he can't handle an interview with his own staff because he has the intellect and attention span of a toddler.
