From WaPo:

Trump told NBC News, “In fact, when I decided to just do it, I said to myself, I said, ‘You know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story, it’s an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won.’”

My impressions on reading this:

1. Wow. He just admitted he fired Comey because he thinks (or says) the Russia probe is “a made up story.”

2. He refers to himself in the third person.

3. “an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won.”

4. “for having lost an election that they should have won.”

5. “an election that they should have won.”

Did he just . . . admit HRC should have won? Wat????
