Ladies and gentlemen, behold, some s*** the president said during the previous week:
“One friend said to me, ‘You have to be the most innocent man in the history of the United States.’ I had 18 angry Democrat geniuses, all smart, smart as hell…All these guys were after me.”6/25/2020 interview with Sean Hannity.
There’s an entire Wikipedia page named after the most innocent man in the world, then, called “Legal affairs of Donald Trump.” It includes a helpful reminder that our president had a court order to dissolve his own charitable organization because of fraud. His statement above is even self-refuting when you consider the Russia investigation only became about Trump after he started acting so guilty about everything.
“A friend of mine said, ‘You have to be the most perfect person.’ Isn’t that true?”6/25/2020 interview with Sean Hannity.
This friend is definitely real, you guys.
“Veteran’s choice approved…where, if they can’t see a doctor – we have great doctors in the VA but, if you can’t see a doctor, you go out and you get a private doctor – we pay the bill. And it’s, you have no idea how great it’s been.”6/25/2020 interview with Sean Hannity.
The question to our president was what he considers to be his biggest accomplishment. You may note this item is not his accomplishment. President Obama signed the Veteran’s Choice Act into law back in 2014.
“We had the best, uh, you know until this artificial problem – because I call it an artificial problem – we had to turn off our country to save millions of lives and now we’ve turned it back on. And it’s coming back much faster than anybody thought possible.”6/25/2020 interview with Sean Hannity.
When our president says “it’s” coming back faster than anybody thought possible, it’s hard to tell if he’s talking about the economy coming back – or the virus.
“Well, one of the things that will be really great – you know, the word ‘experience is still good. I always say talent is more important than experience. I’ve always said that. But the word ‘experience’ is a very important word. It’s [got] a very important meaning. I never did this before; I never slept over in Washington. I was in Washington I think 17 times. All of a sudden, I’m president of the United States. You know the story. I’m riding down Pennsylvania Avenue with our First Lady and I say, ‘This is great.’ But I didn’t know very many people in Washington. It wasn’t my thing. I was from Manhattan, from New York. Now I know everybody, and I have great people in the administration. You make some mistakes, like you know an idiot like [former national security adviser John] Bolton – all he wanted to do was drop bombs on everybody. You don’t have to drop bombs on everybody. You don’t have to kill people.”6/25/2020 interview with Seam Hannity.
The question was: ‘What are your top priority items for a second term?’ That rambling mess up there is the entire answer. So, nothing. No priorities. He’ll be watching Fox News and rage tweeting through 2024, either from the White House or the penthouse or the Big House.
“So we have more cases because we do the greatest testing. If we didn’t do testing, we’d have no cases. Other countries, they don’t test millions – it’s up to almost 30 million tests.”6/25/2020 interview with Sean Hannity.
In context, he really does seem to think more testing is a negative thing to him, personally. It’s like the old Looney Tunes where Wile E. Coyote doesn’t fall off the cliff until he looks down. I would never have believed an adult could fall for this kind of thing, but here we are.
“Whatever you want to call it. I said the other night: ‘There are so many names to this.’ I could name 19 names. Like, “Corona 19.” But I could name 19 names.”6/25/2020 interview with Sean Hannity.
Corona 19? The only one he rattled off is one no one ever calls it?
“Chicago is an example. It’s, like, worse than Afghanistan. We have cities that are worse, in some cases far worse. Take a look at Detroit. Take a look at what’s happening in Oakland. Take a look at what’s happening in Baltimore…These cities, it’s like living in hell.”6/25/2020 interview with Sean Hannity.
Worse than Afghanistan? I’m sorry, is Vladimir Putin offering bounties for killing people in Chicago now, too? American cities aren’t perfect, but writing off nearly all of America’s GDP (including fully half from just the largest 23 metro areas) like this is bonkers. Our entire GDP doesn’t come from hell.
“Democrats think it’s wonderful that [rioters] are destroying our country.”6/25/2020 interview with Sean Hannity.
Nope. Literally nobody thinks that. I mean, really, this is Drunk Guy at the Bar stuff.
“They said to me, ‘What’s the toughest country to deal with?’ Who is it? Is it China? Is it Russia? Could it be North Korea?’ I said, ‘No, it’s the United States of America. The toughest country to deal with.’”6/25/2020 interview with Sean Hannity.
Not the nuclear powers hell-bent on destroying our country. No. Our president considers his own country the toughest to deal with. Maybe that’s why we think he’s pretty tough to deal with, too.
