If you marveled over Donald Trump’s attorneys Ty Cobb and John Dowd—two supposed Washington veterans—discussing internal legal rifts in the West Wing within ear shot of a New York Times reporter, it’s a good time to recap just how incompetent Trump’s bunch of misfits have repeatedly proven to be. First, take a gander at NYT reporter Ken Vogel’s pic of Cobb lunching with Dowd a table away.

Apparently, Cobb’s learned nothing from The Americans. Likewise, the guy Cobb was complaining about, White House counsel Don McGahn, hasn’t figured out he’s working among colleagues who leak like pricked helium balloons.

After The Times contacted the White House about the situation, Mr. McGahn privately erupted at Mr. Cobb, according to people informed about the confrontation who asked not to be named describing internal matters.

Wow, couldn’t have seen that coming. But then again, as the Washington Post‘s Aaron Blake notes, Trump’s attorneys haven’t proven to be the sharpest knives in the drawer. Here’s excerpts of a list Blake assembled detailing the indiscretions of Trump’s legal lackeys.

Cohen, by the way, is scheduled to testify to the Senate Intelligence Committee Tuesday. Though it’s unclear whether the testimony will be public or private, with a little luck Cohen will spill the beans over lunch at a busy Washington eatery.
