Weekly Trump Dump – 10 Most Outrageous Things President Donald Trump Said And Did This Week
It’s been another week in Trump’s America and we’re here with your weekly therapeutic review of the ten most outrageous things President Donald Trump said and did this week. Let’s get into it:
- In a press conference with the Chancellor of Germany, all seemed to be going well and no outlandish comments were made. This was until the end, though, when Trump was asked about the wiretapping claims he made about former President Barack Obama. Rather than own that he made the accusation, Trump told the reporter that, “you shouldn’t be talking to me, you should be talking to Fox” as a lawyer on Fox had been the first to suggest this had happened.
- Speaking of Fox, Trump complimented them on his Twitter, while at the same time getting a dig in at one of his favorite targets- CNN. Specifically, he tweeted that, “Just heard Fake News CNN is doing polls again despite the fact that their election polls were a WAY OFF disaster. Much higher ratings at Fox.”
- Trump also took to Twitter to blast the Democrats for making up the “Russian story,” tweeting that, “The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a terrible campaign. Big advantage in Electoral College & lost!”
- He wasn’t done talking about the Russian “story,” though, as he tweeted later in the week that, “Just watched the totally biased and fake news reports of the so-called Russia story on NBC and ABC. Such dishonesty!”
- After the tragic terrorist attack in London, Trump offered condolences via his Twitter account, but the way he did it was sort of bizarre. Specifically, he tweeted about speaking to London’s Prime Minister to offer condolences and how she is “strong and doing very well.” Meanwhile, former President Obama tweeted a more appropriate and Presidential message, writing that, “My heart goes out to the victims and their families in London. No act of terror can shake the strength and resilience of our British ally.”
- While Trump didn’t offer condolences to the families/victims in London, when he found out an American life was lost, he tweeted, “A great American, Kurt Cochran, was killed in the London terror attack. My prayers and condolences are with his family and friends.”
- In an interview with Time Magazine, Trump talked about the wiretapping, bizarrely claiming that, “When I said wiretapping, it was in quotes. Because a wiretapping is, you know today it is different than wire tapping. It is just a good description. But wiretapping was in quotes. What I’m talking about is surveillance.”
- In the same interview with Time, Trump took- ironically- time to boast again about his Presidential win, noting that, “Remember they said there was no way to get to 270? Well I ended up at 306. I had election night, 306. But there was no way to get to, in fact I went to Maine four times, four times I went to Maine, because I had to get one vote, because there was no way to get to 270, but I ended up getting to 306.”
- Trump also defended some of the outlandish things he’s said to Time– including that Ted Cruz‘s father was with Lee Harvey Oswald, asking Time, “Why do you say that I have to apologize? I’m just quoting the newspaper…”
- Finally, not to harp too much on the Time interview, but what Trump closed out his interview with is too priceless not to close out our Trump Dump with. Specifically, he claimed, “I can’t be doing so badly, because I’m president, and you’re not. You know. Say hello to everybody OK?”
With that wrap up- which sounds much like a school aged child saying nana boo boo- we bid you ado, and will see you next week for the Trump Dump. We shudder at the thought of all that Trump will dump on us in the week to come.
