"I unraveled her"

That's Donald Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen. It's hilarious, isn't it?

But you know what's really funny? He doesn't seem to understand how bad that makes him look. Indeed, he apparently thinks he "controlled the interview."
An interview between a CNN anchor and a top aide to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump devolved into a palpably uncomfortable debate over polls on Wednesday evening.

In a conversation with Yahoo News shortly after the conversation aired, Michael Cohen, an executive vice president and attorney at the Trump Organization, said he believed he “controlled the interview” with Brianna Keilar.

“I think I unraveled her,” Cohen boasted.

Watch it for yourself. That interview is going viral because it's so funny. But Trump supporters are faith-based. They believe only what they want to believe.

And in their imagination, they're winning. The polls don't matter, because the polls aren't telling them what they want to believe.

Don't get me wrong. Trump could win, especially if liberals get complacent and/or stupid. But the election is certainly not looking to be in his favor right now.

Unless you're Donald Trump or one of his clueless supporters, at least. Then, the polls have to be wrong, because they don't want them to be right.

Fox 'News' is pushing that narrative, too, of course, though not everyone there. I have to give Dana Perino some credit, much as it pains me to do so. But Eric Bolling is acting like you'd expect Eric Bolling to act.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump is claiming that, if he does lose the election, it will be because the election is "rigged." Obviously, he can't stand to be a "loser," so he's already preparing his excuses. And, at the same time, he's encouraging his loonier supporters to assassinate President Clinton, afterwards.

This is taking faith-based thinking to a whole new level, while also encouraging domestic terrorism. Yeah, this is the Republican Party's presidential candidate. They've brought it on themselves, too. Republican leaders and political pundits have only themselves to blame.

And for Trump's next trick, he puts the head of Breitbart in charge of his campaign.

No kidding! But crazy seems to work with a lot of people, Jeff. Whatever the polls say, I'm not going to feel comfortable until the Republicans are defeated in a landslide.
