@realDonaldTrump at 8:10 a.m.: “Just returned from Europe. Trip was a great success for America. Hard work but big results!” … at 8:33 a.m.: “It is my opinion that many of the leaks coming out of the White House are fabricated lies made up by the #FakeNews media.” … at 8:34 a.m.: “Whenever you see the words ‘sources say’ in the fake news media, and they don’t mention names….” at 8:45 a.m.: “….it is very possible that those sources don’t exist but are made up by fake news writers. #FakeNews is the enemy!” … at 8:45 a.m.: “Does anyone notice how the Montana Congressional race was such a big deal to Dems & Fake News until the Republican won? V was poorly covered” … at10:43 a.m.: “British Prime Minister May was very angry that the info the U.K. gave to U.S. about Manchester was leaked. Gave me full details!”
And Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) morning email thingie tells us:
— BY THE WAY … — Trump’s White House asks for permission to speak without attribution to reporters all the time. Also, just days ago, Trump said he wanted his administration to find the leakers. Now he’s saying that leaks “coming out of the White House” are fake. Which one is it?
I know which it is: it is whatever flits into the mango-hued shitgibbon’s noggin at the moment he says/tweets it. There’s no filter, there’s not strategy, there’s no thought process, there’s only his Ego and his Id fighting in public. He lies because he’s too intellectually lazy to seek the truth and because the truth doesn’t matter to him. He’s a sociopath with the world’s most powerful army at his beck and call.
We are so fucked in the dark.
