Terrified Trump Goes on Early AM Rant After Polls Show Him Losing to 5 Top Dems: ‘I Haven’t Started Campaigning Yet’



President Donald Trump chose to commemorate the anniversary of 9/11 by lashing out at the polls, which consistently show him losing to Democratic presidential candidates. Not only do the polls show him losing, but losing now by increasing margins.

Showing just how terrified he really is, Trump lobbed lie after lie via Twitter in an early Wednesday morning rant.

Trump once again took issue with an ABC/Washington Post poll – which is rated “A+” by Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight – calling it ” the Amazon Washington Post/ABC.” The Washington Post, which probably more than any other news outlet has broken some of the most damaging stories to the Trump presidency, is privately owned by Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, a multi-billion dollar publicly-traded retailer.

The president also called the poll, which shows him losing to Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, and Pete Buttigieg, “a phony suppression poll, meant to build up their Democrat partners.”

And in an insanely huge lie, Trump insisted, “I haven’t even started campaigning yet, and am constantly fighting Fake News like Russia, Russia, Russia.”

In fact, almost every statement in his Twitter rant was a lie.

For example, Trump has held a dozen campaign rallies in less than a year – since the November 2018 midterms. His last one was in North Carolina 36 hours ago.

Here’s how some are responding to Trump’s tweets:

Trump Flails Over Whistle Blower Charges: ‘It Was a Beautiful Conversation’ but ‘I Don’t Know Who You’re Talking About’



Trump says he doesn’t know which world leader the allegations involve, but he knows his conversation with them was “totally appropriate,” “great,” and “beautiful.”

President Donald Trump appeared to be attempting to cover up both his actions that are now the target of a whistleblower complaint filed by an intelligence official, and his knowledge of what the allegations are. He failed miserably.

Speaking to reporters late Friday morning in the Oval Office the President was asked about the allegation, which include a “promise” he allegedly made, likely to the president of Ukraine. They charges, many believe, are that he used $250 million of U.S. military aid as leverage for Ukraine officials to dig up dirt on his top political opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden.

Here’s how President Trump responded to reporters’ questions:

“Ridiculous story.”

“It’s a partisan whistleblower.”

“I’ve had conversations with many leaders – they’re always appropriate.”

“Anything I do I fight for this country.”

“It’s just another political hack job.”

“It was actually a beautiful conversation.”

“It doesn’t matter what I discussed but I will say this: somebody ought to look into Joe Biden’s statement.”

Trump also charged the media would not investigate Joe Biden “because he’s a Democrat.”

“I had a great conversation with numerous people – I don’t even know exactly who you’re talking about.”

So, the president doesn’t know which world leader the allegations are about, and yet he knows he had a “totally appropriate,” “great,” and “beautiful” conversation with them.
