Donald Trump is now back in the United States. Well, at least he claims he is. At this point, if he said the sky was blue, we wouldn’t take him at his word without checking for ourselves. But Trump is apparently back from the G7, and we know this because he just hit the ground ranting and landed with a giant thud.
Trump posted this whacked out tweet, which served as a reminder that he’s back home, and that he’s not even close to being right in the head: “Just returned to Washington from France and the very successful G-7, only to find that the Fake News is still trying to perpetuate the phony story that I wanted to use Nuclear weapons to blow up hurricanes before they reach shore. This is so ridiculous, never happened!”
Well that’s great. The President of the United States is now insisting that he didn’t try to nuke a hurricane. This is just a few days after he insisted that he didn’t try to buy Greenland from Denmark, only to then turn around and admit that he did try to do it, and then he punished Denmark for it. For all we know, tomorrow he might admit the nuking a hurricane thing is true, and then try to punish hurricanes for it. That wouldn’t make any sense, which is essentially the point.
The President of the United States falsely claimed today that the First Lady met with the murderous dictator of North Korea, and it wasn’t even necessarily the most outrageous false thing he said today. Is he lying? Is he hallucinating? Donald Trump is an evil individual and a monstrous president. He’s also flat out mentally incompetent.
