Spewing Conspiracy Theories and Rambling and Ranting Trump Goes Off the Rails in Fox News Interview (Video)



‘Highest Levels’ of Obama Administration Spied on Him Says Trump

President Donald Trump went off-the-rails when he called in to “Fox & Friends” Friday morning. For 57 minutes straight with no commercials the fast-talking President spewed conspiracy theory after conspiracy theory, tossed around lies and personal attacks against top Democrats, including coming close to saying once again that President Barack Obama spied on him and his campaign.

“They thought I was going to win and said ‘how can we stop him?'” Trump said of Obama and his administration.

“You’re dealing at the highest levels of government. They were spying on my campaign. This is my opinion,” Trump said.

Host Steve Doocy interjected: “How high did it go?”

“Personally, I think it goes all the way,” Trump replied. He then mentioned by name John Brennan, James Clapper, and Susan Rice.

Trump once again tossed out conspiracy theories about the DNC server that was hacked, claiming Democratic Party officials “gave the server to Crowdstrike.”

That’s false.

Here’s CNN fact checker Daniel Dale:

CNN’s Jake Tapper weighs in:

To defend his illegal extortion of Ukraine Trump claims the U.S. is the only country giving money to Ukraine. That’s false:

Trump Now ‘Mentally Unreachable’: Report



President Donald Trump’s aides have simply stopped trying to communicate with him, including during Wednesday’s deadly insurrection, and are “avoiding him like the plague.”

“Some stalwart aides and confidants — after years of enduring the crazy and trying to modulate the chaos — have given up trying to communicate with him, considering him mentally unreachable,” according to Axios.

The outgoing President’s “closest friends and paid White House officials — many of the Trumpiest Trumpers we know — are avoiding him like the plague,” the access journalism site’s Mike Allen and Jonathan Swan report.

Business Insider adds that on “Wednesday afternoon, the New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman said that Trump’s aides were trying to get him to issue a strong statement against the violence but that he was ‘ignoring these entreaties.'”

She “also described a Trump advisor as saying that people close to Trump were ‘certain the president wanted this and is enjoying it.'”

Four people died during the violent insurrection, including one woman inside the Capitol Building who reportedly was shot in the neck by Capitol Police.

Massive Maniacal Meltdown: Trump Lashes Out in Rampage of Rage Tweeting – Totally Ignores 61,000 Dead Americans



There are currently over one million Americans confirmed to have been infected with coronavirus, and 61,680 Americans who have died from the devastating virus.

Over the past 12 hours President Donald Trump went into meltdown mode. The clearly upset and frustrated leader of the most powerful country on the planet chose to share that frustration as he does daily, on Twitter.

In a rampage of over 40 tweets the President lashed out, tweeting or retweeting about: his former National Security Advisor, fired and disgraced convicted felon Michael Flynn (a lot); former FBI Director Jim Comey, whom he also fired; his Senate acquittal; meat processing plants; Iowa Pork; Iowa; “The Do Nothing Democrats!”; BP America; a GOP Congressman’s attack on Joe Biden; a help wanted link; a right wing extremist pundit’s claim journalists never apologize, after one did the day before – which Trump tweeted; a Sexual Health Counselor’s tweet attacking CNN; Sweden; CNN’s Don Lemon; MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough; MSNBC’s Brian Williams (a lot); CNN (a lot); a lie that Hillary Clinton’s campaign colluded with Russia; “FAKE POLLING”; Roger Stone; Comcast; and a Happy Birthday message to a GOP Congressman.

Missing from those 40-plus tweets was a single word of sorrow, lament, sadness, or grief over the 61,680 Americans who have died from the devastating coronavirus, a pandemic his actions made exponentially worse.

‘Like a Junkie Needs a Fix’: Trump Mocked After White House Cancels Coronavirus Briefing Then Quickly Adds It Back



President Donald Trump hasn’t held a coronavirus task force briefing since Friday, when he abruptly ended it after 21 minutes and took no questions – clearly not wanting to have to answer for his dangerous disinfectant “injection” remarks.

The President’s daily schedule for Monday, released Sunday, included a coronavirus task force briefing which the White House subsequently canceled Monday morning.

It’s back on.

The White House Press Pool reports: “The White House has added a press conference/briefing for the Rose Garden. Your updated guidance says 5 p.m., but I’m hearing it will be more like 5:30.”

Many predicted Trump would not be able to go without these daily “briefings,” which some say he is addicted to.
