‘Panicked’ Trump roundly mocked after parroting Fox News conspiracy theory in Monday morning Twitter meltdown

Published

on

The American president used to be considered the leader of the free world. As such, any president of the United States should have access to the absolute best: the best intelligence, the best advisors, and, if necessary, the best attorneys.

But not Donald Trump, who ironically won the White House in part by telling voters he only hired “the best.”

That’s turned out to be the far from from truth.

The “best advisors” he can get are Fox News pundits and commentators.

On Monday morning President Trump, just like his Sunday morning “meltdown,” launched into a lengthy Twitter tirade.

He’s tweeted seven times in an hour.

The last three tweets were a quote from one of the NRA’s most aggressive TV talk show hosts, Dan Bongino a three-time loser in Republican races for Congress.

The crux of Bongino’s conspiracy theory is that former CIA Director John Brennan is behind the Russia probe, based on the famous Russian dossier, which he falsely claims is “phony.” In fact not a single aspect of the dossier has been proven false, and many portions have been proven true.

Bongino’s rant, which the president tweeted out to his 52 million followers, is that Brennan “is the genesis of this whole Debacle. This was a Political hit job, this was not an Intelligence Investigation. Brennan has disgraced himself, he’s worried about staying out of Jail.”

Trump clearly typed this tweet, given the absurd capitalizations.

Media Matters’ Matthew Gertz noticed Bongino had just been on “Fox & Friends.”

Published

on

White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney admitted that President Donald Trump held up Ukraine aid to pressure the country to investigate a conspiracy theory.

Mulvaney, who is also the White House budget director, told reporters Thursday that Trump's desire to investigate his belief that a DNC computer server was hidden in Ukraine was part of the reason congressionally approved military aid was held up.

However, he insisted that did not represent a quid pro quo arrangement.

"We do that all the time, get over it," Mulvaney said. "Politics is going to be involved in foreign policy, elections do have consequences."

Trump chief of staff announces G7 will be held at Trump’s golf course

Published

President Donald Trump will have next year's G7 meeting at his own golf course in Doral, Florida, chief of staff Mick Mulvaney announced on Thursday.

In announcing that the G7 meeting will be held at the Trump National Doral Miami, Mulvaney insisted that the president will not personally profit from holding the meeting there and claimed that it was simply the "best" place to hold the summit.

Mulvaney deflected reporters' questions about using the G7 summit to boost the golf resort's brand name by saying that the Trump brand name is already widely known throughout the world and doesn't need a G7 meeting to make it stronger.
