Although most people who follow the news think that Donald Trump is at Camp David… let’s take a closer look…
In writing Fire and Fury, Inside the Trump White House, journalist Michael Wolff had virtually unlimited access to the West Wing in general and to then Chief Strategist Steve Bannon in particular. In the book, Bannon directly attacks Trump and his family members. The gist of Fire and Fury is that Trump is mentally unstable and should not be in the White House with immediate accesss to his big nuclear button.

Fire and Fury is now the number one bestseller on Amazon, so yesterday, Trump tweeted to his rapidly dwindling base that he is really really smart and that he is a “stable genius.”
Immediately, associate solitary reporter Lewis Thompson III went to the Apple Store's Genius Bar in one of Denver’s toniest shopping districts, the Cherry Creek Shopping Center, because he knew that Trump, rather than hobnobbing with most members of his Cabinet at Camp David, would really much prefer to test the waters for 2020 and 2024 in Colorado, a state which former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton easily won in the 2016 presidential contest. In the 2016 GOP primary, Colorado Republicans much preferred Sen. Ted Cruz (TP-Texas).
Knowing full well that the Mile High City votes Democratic 2-1, Trump was accompanied by one of his chief thugs, Corey Lewandowski, and a whole phalanx of Secret Service agents. All were closely observed by ASR Thompson.
As Trump swaggered himself to the Genius Bar — where really, really smart computer nerds fix your Mac in fifteen minutes or less — all 30 geniuses walked up to him and ignored the Secret Service and Lewandowski for an amazing five seconds, during which time they loudly hissed and booed Trump, yelling, “You’re no genius! And you’re clearly off your rocker!” — at the expiration of which time they were all very rudely handcuffed and arrested by the Secret Service and taken immediately either to their arraignment in Denver County Court or to an undisclosed location.
Which left Trump with a golden opportunity to address the astonished 300 loyal Apple users, grossly disrupting sales. But one by one, 299 of the loyal Apple users left, as quickly as they could, which left ASR Thompson on an equal footing with 45.
Thompson, a very prominent Unitarian Universalist layman, said to Trump, “None of these Apple products here at this wonderful, incredibly popular store, promotes fake news, Sir, but all your tweets, Sir, are phony, obnoxious, disrespectful, and, in a word really, really s___y.”
Trump yelled at Thompson, saying “And who the f__ are you?” But Trump’s Communications Director, Hope Hicks, had already whispered into Trump’s ear, “Sir, this dude represents the most socially progressive religious denomination in the United States. I already have a beautiful statement prepared for you, which says that you have invited Mr. Thompson to the White House for a cozy, polite conversation.”
Trump immediately grabbed the draft statement from Hicks and went into a full meltdown. Thompson assisted the Secret Service in putting Trump into an ambulance, which immediately whisked him to the Fort Logan Mental Health Center in a nearby Denver suburb.
