The Great Meltdown of Donald Trump continues to sweep over the nation as his legal peril escalates and his grasp of reality declines. Trump’s psychotic breakdowns are the most predictable aspects of his noxious character, or lack thereof. And they always build to a climax when he is legitimately criticized by politicians or pundits who know him all too well.
On Friday morning Trump lashed out at New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman whose new book, “Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America,” recounts the depravities of Trump’s presidency and personality.
“Here we go again! Another Fake book is out, this one, supposedly very boring and stale, by self appointed head case, Failing (unfunded liability!) New York Times writer, Maggie Hagerman. In it she tells many made up stories, with zero fact checking or confirmation by anyone who would know, like me. In one case she lies about me wanting to fire my daughter, Ivanka, and Jared. WRONG, pure fiction. Never even crossed my mind. Just have to fight trouble making creeps like Maggie, and all the rest!”
Let’s set aside the bizarre and infantile ranting that Haberman appointed herself a “head case,” and Trump’s cranky review of her book as “boring and stale.” What Trump is really upset about is that Haberman has so accurately revealed some of the humiliating moments of his occupation of the White House that he would prefer remain private. She interviewed more than 250 People, including Trump – three times. And specifically with regard to the Ivanka and Jared revelations, CNN reports that…
“Trump raised the prospect of firing Ivanka Trump and Kushner, who were both senior White House aides, during meetings with then-chief of staff John Kelly and then-White House counsel Don McGahn, Haberman writes. At one point, he was about to tweet that his daughter and son-in-law were leaving the White House – but he was stopped by [Chief of Staff John] Kelly, who told Trump he had to speak with them directly first.”
Additionally, Haberman’s book reveals that Trump “resisted denouncing White supremacists,” “made light of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s declining health, “[Kelly] described Trump as a “fascist,” and that his staff “found documents flushed down the toilet.”
The book also exposes just how ignorant Trump was and is of government, and his authoritarian aspirations. When confronted with news of his first impeachment, Trump babbled, “I’ll just sue Congress. They can’t do this to me.” He also believed that Republicans in the Senate “could block legislation by skipping votes,” and that “The vice president’s vote doesn’t count. It doesn’t count. You might want to check this,” And after losing the 2020 election “Trump vowed to aides that he simply wouldn’t leave the White House.”
So naturally Trump is berating Haberman. But the only real complaint should be that she withheld this information from the public so that she can profit from it in her book.
Still, the last thing Trump wants is for factual accounts of his childish, hostile, and ignorant behavior to be documented and published. And, as usual, he provides no basis whatsoever for his criticisms. It’s just another tantrum by a paranoid narcissist who can’t handle the truth.
UPDATE: Later the same day Trump felt it was necessary to make sure that everyone knows just how emotionally stunted and immature he is, so he posted another comment calling his NY Times nemesis “Maggot” Haberman. He’s still stuck significantly below the eight year old level.
