Trump is a Liar (and Nuts)
Trump shoots off his purdy little mouth all the time accusing the media of being fake news.
That comes from a dude who, a few weeks ago, tweeted out, with absolutely no evidence to support it, the incredulous claim that the former POTUS, Barack Obama, committed a felony and had Trump's "wires tapped" at Trump Tower.
THAT WAS FAKE NEWS.
About a week later, a supposed brilliant legal mind, Andrew Napolitano, a FAUX NOOZ legal analyst, alleged on the electric teevee machine that President Obama had bypassed US spy agencies and had British intelligence do the tapping of Trump's wires. Trump had his press secretary, Sean Spicer, repeat that allegation and then he blamed FAUX NOOZ for suggesting it. Blame-weasel.
THAT WAS FAKE NEWS
Trump has spread FAKE NEWS all around this country like so much horse manure, hoping something, anything, will grow from it in order to put some polish on his ridiculously turdy presidency. But this lie about a former president is disturbing because of the seriousness of the charge. Trump's and the GOP's refusal to acknowledge that the wiretapping claim is a lie will cause lasting damage to our democracy, as Josh Marshall writes in his editorial on this shameful, patently false assertion by Trump.
The truth is that Trump is a Liar. Andrew Napolitano is merely a gullible fool.
Report Confirms Fox News’ Napolitano Repeated Russian Media For His British Intelligence Conspiracy Theory
The New York Times has confirmed that Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano sourced his false allegation that former President Barack Obama asked British intelligence to spy on President Donald Trump to a discredited former CIA analyst. This analyst, Larry C. Johnson, floated the conspiracy theory on the Russian state-sponsored news network RT on March 6, the week after Trump’s original accusation that Obama was responsible for an illegal wiretap.
Something will have to give. Our plunge into squalid pettiness and international disgrace has even the straightest of journalists, such as the Washington Post's Dan Balz, penning unconcealed condemnations of the Trump administration's baseness — and its inevitable collision with decency.
"A prudent president … would find ways to avoid needless controversy," writes Balz. "Not President Trump. He’s doing exactly the opposite, and the credibility gap continues to grow."
Adds two NYT reporters: "Trump’s agenda [has been] subsumed by problems of his own making…. [I]t has … become clear that Mr. Trump [is] an agitator incapable of responding proportionately to any slight" — or intelligently, or maturely, addressing any national problem or international predicament.
In short, it would seem that our president is clinically unhinged — bats, bonkers. After 18 months of demonstrable instabilities on the campaign trail, he has, within only two months as president, further revealed himself to be a delusional, emotionally besotted Tricky Dick staggering his way down WH halls and murmuring to ghosts.
Put even shorter: Donald J. Trump is nuts.
And if something is to give, it'll almost have be the 25th Amendment — a true gift of historic proportions.
Trump: "We’re going to have insurance for everybody,” Trump said in January. “There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can’t pay for it, you don’t get it. That’s not going to happen with us...Everybody’s got to be covered.”
