At roughly the same time as the news broke that President Donald Trump threatened to sue his campaign manager over his declining polls against former Vice President Joe Biden, Reuters reported that Trump ranted he doesn’t even believe the polls in the first place.
"I don't believe the polls," Trump said. "I believe the people of this country are smart. And I don't think that they will put a man in who's incompetent." https://t.co/I9aR0tDhB3

Trump’s denial led to widespread mockery on social media — particularly his claim that he doesn’t believe America could vote for a man “who’s incompetent.”
Who wants to tell him?

“…I don’t think they will put a man in that’s incompetent”??

Holy Batman. We’ve been trying to recover since 2016 when Americans did just that!!!

President Biden: 'Donald! It's Joe Biden! Come out of the White House now. This has gone on long enough. This is your fourth and final warning! Vacate the premises, before the SWAT team sends in teargas and the K9s.

So we're clear: I am really fucking smart, I am not a statistics-denier, & I'll be voting for the Democratic nominee because I am not endorsing another term of an incompetent corrupt racist xenophobic bigoted mendacious tool of foreign governments & advocate of bleach ingestion.

President Pine-Sol is very, very, very mad.
“‘I’m not losing to Joe Biden,’ Trump said at one point, both of these people said, adding that the president used profanities throughout the call.” https://t.co/xvvEwzLan6
