Trump: We’re Too Busy To Tell The Truth

Donald Trump took to Twitter this morning and offered a rather bizarre explanation for the reason why his Administration can’t seem to get its story straight when it comes to the reason why former F.B.I. Director James Comey was fired:

It’s only Day 113, my friends.

  1. CSK says:

    Love the 7:59 tweet. What he’s saying is that his surrogates are a very active president.

  2. Scott says:

    ‘I don’t want to talk to you no more, you empty headed animal food trough wiper. I fart in your general direction.

  3. James Pearce says:

    The media should call his bluff, but they won’t. They’ll just keep making Trump’s tweets headlines, pumping on the outrage bellows until the coals glow.

  4. Mark Ivey says:

    He should fire all his spokespeople and do all his “Spoking” via Twitter.

    When I was younger, I remember that the first rule of the swindle was “never put anything in writing.” Hmmmm…

  6. Janis Gore says:

    He did not write those tweets. They’re too coherent and the words are too long.

  7. Janis Gore says:

    Those sound like Kellyanne.

  8. Moosebreath says:

    Sometimes Trump tells the truth. Sometimes Trump tells lies. But only rarely can he tell the difference.

  9. Not the IT Dept. says:

    If we really want to see Trump melt down in real time, let the press corp all laugh at him the next time he holds a presser. He won’t be able to stand it, and it will make Margaret Hamilton’s dissolve in the Wizard of Oz look minor by comparison

  10. Jen says:

    the next time he holds a presser.

    Huh, interesting point. When *is* he going to hold a general press conference? Meaning, just him up at the podium, pointing to reporters not from Breitbart for questions?
