It’s ‘A Sad Day in America’ Trump Whines, as He Yells at ‘Crazed Lunatics’ in the Media

It’s as predictable as the sun rising over lobbyists at Mar-a-Lago. Whenever Donald Trump’s anxiety swells his otherwise empty cranium, he lashes out at the press with hollow insults and reckless characterizations as “enemies of the people,” a line he stole from Joseph Stalin. And now as the Trump Shutdown enters its sixteenth day, Trump is realizing that he has no leverage over the Democrats in Congress, and the American people oppose his vanity wall and the political stunts he employs to secure funding for it.

Consequently, in his regularly scheduled morning tweetstorm, Trump focused intensely on the press that he despises so vehemently. It was a particularly harsh assault that was riddled with flagrant falsehoods and figments of his tortured imagination. He began, however, with some good old-fashioned (and undeserved) bragging about himself:

What Trump apparently means by “success” is the fact the government that he hates is shut down and hundreds of thousands of Americans are not working, or they are working and not being paid. It’s a condition that Trump absurdly said he can relate to. Really? Then he veers off to accuse the media of being “crazed lunatics who have given up on the TRUTH!” That might be a more convincing criticism if Trump weren’t the most dishonest president in history who has told more than 7,500 lies since his inauguration. But he wasn’t through:

Once again, Trump’s idea of “tremendous success” is a stock market that is down over 3,000 points in the last quarter, and was in the red for the year for the first time in a decade. His administration is crumbling with terminations and defections that have resulted in there being six cabinet members who are serving in an “acting” capacity because he can’t find any credible people who will work for him. He also asserts, without any factual basis, that the press is making up sources and publishing fiction.

But Trump is right that this is “a sad day in America.” In fact, it’s been a sad couple of years. That may change now that Democrats have the majority in the House of Representatives and there is some real oversight into Trump’s criminal activities. That, of course, is a big contributor to Trump’s ballooning anxieties. And it’s why he’s escalating attacks like these:

Trump is desperately trying to turn the American people against the free press so that they will dismiss reports of his collusion and conspiracy with Russia, his financial corruption, his unlawful initiatives, his submissive foreign policy, and his obstruction of justice. He’s fighting a losing battle on those grounds as most polls show that majorities of the people trust the media more than they trust Trump.

As if to affirm his own untrustworthiness, Trump posted a couple more tweets that were blatantly deceitful. In one he quoted Rep. Adam Smith (D-WA) as seemingly siding with Trump’s contention that he can declare a state of emergency as a means of funding the border wall:

However, Trump left out the second part of Smith’s comment wherein he hammered the President saying:

“…but primarily it’s been done to build facilities in Afghanistan and Iraq. In this case, I think the president would be wide open to a court challenge saying, where is the emergency? You have to establish that in order to do this. Beyond that, this would be a terrible use of Department of Defense dollars.”

In the other tweet, Trump went after the New York Times for correctly reporting that his statements regarding the removal troops from Syria changed drastically in a number of days. Unfortunately for Trump, the record of his original statements is preserved in his own Twitter feed:

Finally (we wish), Trump announced that he will “Address the Nation on the Humanitarian and National Security crisis on our Southern Border,” in a televised speech this Tuesday evening. We can expect this to be a thorough rehashing of the lies he has been telling for weeks in his defense of shutting down the government and begging the American people to pay for what he promised would be paid for by Mexico. And never mind that Trump has since insisted that the wall would pay for itself in a year, and that it would be paid for by the USMCA trade deal (that has not been ratified) So it’s actually being paid for twice, but he’s still asking taxpayers to fork over funds for it.

The media, however, should take a strong look at refusing to air this blatant propaganda by Trump. These Reality TV-style affairs are generally devoid of news and infected by Trump’s pathological lying. There is no reason they can’t be monitored and aired later with the fact checking that will surely be necessary. The media is under no obligation to grant scarce airtime to liars so that they can dispense fictional and self-serving distortions of reality.

  1. This is all distraction and obfuscation with Family Values Republican approval. He knows anything he lies about will be covered, that in turn allows him to continue, with glee. A person would hope they do not re-nominate him again since he’s actively Campaigning right now. A visual graphic on screen, with his face, should always be showing the degree of the lie at that moment. That would be accurate reporting and Americans deserve it. It should be color coded rising up and down on a side by side view. It’s a simple way to reveal the totality of all of his lies. Please?

  2. It’s a sad day in America that, that a*swipe dump, is president. It was a sad day, when that p.o.s. dump, was ALLOWED to run. It was a sad day when the gop did NOTHING to stop that anti-american, anti-patriotic s*itstain, dump, FROM running.

  3. “As predictable as the sun rising over lobbyists at Mar-a-Lago”……………………good one.
