Donald Trump either has a very warped sense of humor or unlimited amounts of chutzpah.
In today’s lesson in obfuscation the tweeter-in-chief came up with this doozy: “I just cannot state strongly enough how dishonest much of the Media is. Truth doesn’t matter to them, they only have their hatred & agenda.”
It’s too bad the president doesn’t read the Washington Post, which he has trashed as a PR mouthpiece for owner Jeff Bezos, a charter member on Trump’s “enemy of the people” list
WAPO has counted more than 4,200 Trump lies or misstatements since he moved into the White House. Trump's charge that the media lie is a case of the pot calling the kettle black.
The paper today picked up the last presidential mistatement. It reported an Associated Press story about Trump falsely claiming that Google, a recent target of the president, shunned his State of the Union speech, but lavishly promoted Obama’s SOTU addresses.
The Wayback Machine, however, shows that Google not only covered Trump’s 2018 speech but advertised it with “Live! Watch President Trump’s State of the Union Address on YouTube.”
But it really doesn’t matter to the president. Truth is what he says it is.
Meanwhile, the “failing” New York Times reported today that Trump tried to buy all the dirt on him gathered by his former favorite news outlet, National Enquirer, and his ex-publishing buddy David Pecker, who has jumped off the Trump Train.
Pecker, the CEO of American Media Inc., has been granted federal immunity and flipped on The Donald by telling the feds that Trump knew about payments to women whom he allegedly had sex with.
No more invites to Mar-a-Lago for Pecker.
That National Enquirer treasure trove allegedly includes juicy tidbits about Trump’s lawsuits, marital troubles and alleged affairs.
Trump has denied the shenanigans attributed to him.
He has a lot of chutzpah.
