1. I can tell them who is not leaking these quotes

It's not a Democrat. It's his own people who are now scared shit-less at how absolutely face-melting nuts their boss is. Who in the White House? Maybe not all of them, but more than a few.

You can walk it back all you want; that scent ain't never going away.
