Columnist Ruth Marcus has some advice for him: Don't be stupid. And maybe he even felt that Trump needed some kind of bat-signal delivered through cable news about how much trouble he's in. But when it happens multiple times, it starts to look like carelessness.
At one point, he proposed that Trump had advance knowledge of the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting in which his son, Donald Trump Jr., hosted Russians promising "dirt" on Hillary Clinton.
The New York Times reported that George Nader, an adviser to the United Arab Emirates with ties to various Trump aides, is cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller and testified before a grand jury last week.
"He was not really an adviser, Jake, come on - do you really think he was an adviser?"

"I haven't had a drink", Nunberg replied. They often do so without looking at themselves in the mirror.
Cohen has described the Daniels payment as a legal, "private transaction" and has told reporters that he wasn't reimbursed by the Trump campaign or the Trump Organization. "Who will our leaders be when they're watching this mess going on in front of them?"
"Nobody made him go on television. You don't want to be involved in alcohol", he said.
This is a long, bad joke.
