Its been a long time since I (Melania) have been able to smuggle any of my diary out. But Donny is now so preoccupied, that I can do so.
He even asked me what to do as President, and this is what I told him:
Fire the FBI director at a time that looks maximally suspicious.
After the whole Republic party and your staff has been pushing an explanation of the firing, go on NBC to deny that story.
In that interview be clear, if not explicit, that you were doing this because of the Russia investigation.
Hint that you were threatening the FBI director
Make sure that you and the FBI director are getting out different descriptions of the conversation, so as to make any record really important.
Have a meeting with Nixon protege Kissinger.
Meet with senior Russian officials.
Allow Russians to cover the meeting but not the US pool or press.
Hint that you have taping in the Oval office.
Make your spokesman refuse to confirm or deny that taping.
Threaten to abolish the press briefings.
Pretty good for one week. Huh?
Well, what am I up to? You have to choose.
- I want him back in New York soon.
- I want him in jail so I get a great divorce outcome.
- I am trying to be helpful.
- He wants out and I promised to do the research and make suggestions.
p.s. I really enjoyed All the President’s Men. My next project is to read The Final Days. I also have Woman on the Edge of Time and Hamlet on my list.
Any additional research suggestions?
