Over the transom this morning came what at first seemed merely a Beatles mixtape with an 18½-minute gap. I unraveled the cassette intending to gift it to the neighbor’s cat Socks, but forensic enhancement of the gap revealed faint audio of a previously unreported Donald Trump encounter with Billy Bush, an unknown associate … and Merrick Garland. A transcript follows.
Paul McCartney: … Get back to where you once belonged. Oh, get back, get back. Get back, oh yeah.
Unknown: The FBI used to be great, it’s still very beautiful.
Trump: I moved on it actually. You know the agents were down on Palm Beach. I moved on the FBI, and I failed. I’ll admit it. I did try and fuck it up, but it was married to truth and justice.
Unknown: That’s huge news there.
Trump: No, no, Nancy. No, this was Bill Barr and I moved on him very heavily, in fact I took him out vote shopping. I wanted to get 11,780 votes. I said, I’ll show you where they have some nice votes. I moved on him like a bitch. I couldn’t get there and he was married to his oath. Then all of a sudden I see him on Capitol Hill, he’s now got the big phony testimony and everything. He’s totally changed his tune.
Bush: Your FBI agent’s hot as shit. In the purple windbreaker.
Multiple voices: Whoah. Yes. Whoah.
Bush: Yes. The Donald has scored. Whoah my man.
Trump: Maybe it’s a different one.
Bush: It better not be the US Attorney. No, it’s, it’s an agent.
Trump: Yeah, that’s her with the gold. I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start dissing her. You know I’m automatically distracted by law enforcement. I just start dissing them. It’s like antimatter. Just diss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything.
Bush: Whatever you want.
Trump: Grab ’em by the badge. You can do anything.
Bush: Yeah, those legs. All I can see is the legs.
Trump: It looks good.
Bush: Come on, shorty.
Trump: Oh, nice legs huh.
Bush: Get out of the way, shorty. Oh, that’s Merrick Garland. Go ahead.
Trump: Hello, how are you? Hi.
Garland: Hi Mr. FPOTUS. How are you?
Trump: Nice seeing you. Terrific. Terrific.
Garland: Are you ready to be indicted?
Trump: We’re ready. Let’s go. Make me a felon.
Bush: How about some cuffs for the Donald, just keeping it real?
Garland: Would you like a steel bracelet, Donald?
Trump: Absolutely. Melania said it was okay.
[Sounds of a scuffle, running feet, sirens and a pursuit]
Bush: Soon as a prosecutor shows up he just, he takes off. This always happens.
Garland: Prosecutor? I should actually be on the Supreme Court.
Bush: Now if you had to choose, honestly, between jailing the Donald or pleading him out, which would it be?
Garland: That’s some pressure right there.
Bush: Seriously, you had to make a decision.
Garland: I have to take the Fifth on that one.
Garland: Yep. Same answer.
Paul McCartney: Flew in from Miami Beach BOAC. Didn't get to bed last night. On the way, the paper bag was on my knee. Man, I had a dreadful flight…
