Trump’s preparation for a potential interview with Special Counsel Robert Mueller is not going as smoothly as his lawyers want.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Trump had an informal mock interview and it took him four hours to get through two questions. This was due to “frequent interruptions on national-security matters” and his “loquaciousness.” (loquaciousness means very talkative)
This report comes as the President’s lawyers have set a May 17th deadline to decide whether Trump will be willing to sit down for questioning with Mueller. However, if Trump refuses to give Mueller an interview, Mueller could present Trump with a grand jury subpoena.

This report prompted a CNN panel to mock Trump.
Daily Beast editor and CNN analyst John Avlon joked that the practice session probably included “regular breaks for … tweeting.”
Avlon also added, “First of all, he is totally loquacious. He is not focused. Could two questions that are kind of contentious derail him for long periods of time? Sure.”
It also garnered some reactions on social media:
Wow it took him that long to memorize “I plead the fifth”

1. Could you please state and spell your name for the record?
2. Do you understand that what you say here today is being recorded, and that any material false statements you make will be prosecutable as crimes?

In 4 hours there must have been dozens of lies. No wonder his ever-shifting legal team is ever shifting. Who would want to represent an incompetent and senile crime boss in a court of law? It would be like trying to climb a greased pole. It can’t be done without getting dirty.

That’s because it take a lot time explaining a lie….

Trump reportedly only got thru 2 questions in 4 hours of Mueller Interview practice
"It wasn't entirely clear why the two questions took four hours"
Because he's a moron? for $400, Alex.

They made the mistake of starting with, “What would you like on your burger, Mr. President?”
