Ladies and gentlemen, behold, some s*** the president said during the previous week:
What’s this? A special message from the Ghost of Donald Trump past! President Trump settled this case last week, paid $2 million, and now can’t legally operate a charity in NY without state supervision for the rest of his life. It turns out Donald Trump’s charity used donations to pay for a giant painting of himself, make donations to political campaigns, advertise his own hotels, and settle his business’s lawsuits. Remember 2016, when everyone thought the Clinton Foundation was the criminal one?
Climate activist Greta Thunberg was awarded Time Magazine’s Person of the Year for 2019. Greta is upset at the prospect of boomers ignoring global warming and worsening the wreckage for youngsters like her to deal with. President Trump, the noted stickler for decorum, doesn’t like Greta’s tone. So he used his presidential Twitter megaphone to disparage the 16-year old girl that suffers from Asperger’s Syndrome. Also President Trump: “Being presidential is easy.” Don’t worry about Greta, though. She’s fine:
Nancy actually admitted that Robert Mueller’s investigation began two and a half years ago, not impeachment. Mueller’s was the investigation that saw half a dozen of Trump’s top advisers go to jail, and that detailed overwhelming evidence that the president obstructed justice.
This all started with Nancy Pelosi explaining why President Trump’s articles of impeachment didn’t include bribery. So, the President of the United States and self-proclaimed “very stable genius” thinks it has something to do with Nancy’s teeth. I mean, sure.
If you’ve ever watched Fox News, you know it’s 99% GOPTV and 1% Chris Wallace doing Gods work in front of an ungrateful audience. For President Trump, though, 99% isn’t nearly enough fealty.
If more people watch WWE than actual wrestling, it doesn’t make WWE real. Likewise, news organizations are sometimes driven by more than pure, short-term ratings. Perhaps, sometimes they can prioritize informing their audiences?
Oh, would you look at that. He watched Fox News anyway, and now he’s upset that their polling is too liberal. In case you’re wondering, it appears this is the poll that got him all riled up:
Six minutes after yelling about Fox News, Trump found a poll he preferred. Or did he? He named the poll he didn’t like, but this one is left anonymous. Just a guess: this poll is as fake as all the other similar ones he’s made up before.
The Inspector General report, after looking for two years, found no evidence of spying on the Trump campaign.
Imagine paying out $2 million for running a fake charity, making up stories about people’s teeth falling out, fabricating polls where everyone approves of you, inventing tales of spying, insisting those tales were proven true by the very report that disproves the nonsense – and, after all of that – calling your opponents the liars.
That’s our report for this week. Be sure to check out the links for more info on any particular topic and, as always, thanks for reading.
