Donald Trump narcissistically thought he could fix his Bob Woodward scandal by running his mouth at a press conference today, for the same reason he thought he could fix his failing presidency by running his mouth to Woodward to begin with. Now he thinks he can fix his press conference debacle by running his mouth on Twitter tonight. Let’s just say that it’s not going well for him.
For instance, Trump is trying the histrionic route, falsely accusing Joe Biden of wanting to “ban American Energy, confiscate your guns, shutdown the economy, shutdown auto production, delay the vaccine, destroy the suburbs, erase your borders, and indoctrinate your children with poisonous anti-American lies!” This is so ludicrous, it sounds like a Trump parody account.
Then there’s whatever this is supposed to be: “If Joe Biden is elected, far-left lunatics won’t just be running failed Dem Cities—they will be running the Department of Justice, the Department of Homeland Security, and the U.S. Supreme Court. No city, town or suburb will be safe. On November 3rd, your vote will SAVE AMERICA!”
Donald Trump can keep yelling all this absurd and dishonest nonsense all he wants. It clearly isn’t helping him any. Trump keeps betting big on his own mouth, and he keeps coming up empty.
