Donald Trump hasn’t bothered to do most aspects of the job of being “President” of the United States. He spends most of his time either in bed watching Fox News, or hiding out at one of his money laundering golf resorts. For the past month he hasn’t even bothered to keep the federal government open. He’s also given up even trying to interact with the mainstream media as his criminal scandals have worsened. Now he’s going berserk about it.
Awhile back, Donald Trump simply stopped sending White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to the briefing room podium on more than an occasional basis. Trump and Sanders have taken heat for it, but it’s been considered a secondary scandal, considering that Trump has larger scandals like rigging the election and kidnapping immigrant kids. However, now it’s finally coming to a head.
Here’s what Donald Trump tweeted about the matter today: “The reason Sarah Sanders does not go to the “podium” much anymore is that the press covers her so rudely & inaccurately, in particular certain members of the press. I told her not to bother, the word gets out anyway! Most will never cover us fairly & hence, the term, Fake News!”
In other words, because most of the major media outlets are digging up and publishing the details of his endless scandals instead of writing about how great he is, he considers them to be Fake News. Also, what kind of stable genius puts the word “podium” in quotation marks for no apparent reason?
