Liar-in-Chief’s Latest Social Media Meltdown is Easily Debunked by Basic Facts

Over the past few years, and especially since he was sworn into office, Donald Trump has gone on some incredibly incoherent, unhinged, and outlandish Twitter tirades. These events have become so common that I’m actually surprised when I wake up and he hasn’t spent several hours that morning rage-tweeting at the “fake news media,” Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, or whoever else he feels has slighted him in some way.



Though of all the Twitter meltdowns he’s had, Saturday morning’s might have been one of the most ridiculous yet.

Let’s just get right into these.

It began with this one:

Actually, these leaks are nothing like Comey’s memos. Those were his own personal documents where he detailed his interactions with Trump, whereas the intercepts leaked about Sessions’ contact with Russia were highly classified documents to which only a handful of people would have access. That’s why quite a few people are speculating that Trump, himself, could have leaked this information after Sessions refused to resign willingly.

I’d also like to point out that Amazon does not own the Washington Post — its founder Jeff Bezos does, personally.

Though Trump was far from done:

I have to be honest, I have no idea what the hell he’s talking about here — nor does anyone else, it seems. Even CBS News seemed rather confused about this statement. Though they did point out where, just 20 minutes before he sent it, Fox News had a chyron that read: NYT FOILS U.S. ATTEMPT TO TAKE OUT AL-BAGHDADI.

I don’t think that’s a coincidence.

Then he began to really melt down:

If that’s true, then why even bring this up? This is a textbook example of “guilty person behavior.”

And, of course, he had to bring up Hillary Clinton:

For starters, no one is looking into her emails because the FBI already spent over a year investigating her emails and determined there was no criminal wrongdoing. 

As far as “Comey’s crimes,” there are actually people looking into whether or not the former FBI director “leaking” the memos he wrote was a crime.

If only there was a department within our government that someone in Trump’s position could call to ask why they’re not looking into these matters. I dunno, they could call it the Department of Justice or something.

Just an idea.

Then came this gibberish:

Once again, he doesn’t seem to understand that the Russian government wasn’t trying to help anyone else but him during last year’s election.



The “Russian reset” was an attempt by the Obama administration to improve ties with Russia that ultimately failed.

As far as “Podesta’s company,” that’s just pure nonsense. John Podesta sat on the board of a Massachusetts-based company that eventually brought on a Russian banker, as well. I’m not sure why anyone would need to investigate that.

Regarding the “Uranium deal,” that’s a conspiracy that was soundly debunked long ago — that Republicans like Trump continue to push as true.

His rant continued with this gem:

Actually, his son concealed and lied about the meeting for over a year and only published the emails after he was informed that The New York Times was about to. Furthermore, even as “transparent” as Trump and their supporters have claimed his son has been with all of this, the media has continued to dig up more information that wasn’t initially disclosed.

I can pretty much guarantee everyone reading this that had the media reported about this meeting without evidence that it had taken place, Trump and his son would have denied it ever occurred, and called the reports revealing that it had “FAKE NEWS.”

Then came this one:

Actually, Scaramucci called Trump a “hack” in August of 2015, around two months after he had declared his candidacy.

So, yes, Scaramucci knew he was running for president when he criticized him.

Of course, he wasn’t done:

Sorry, Donny, but just like your failure to fulfill your promise on health care, you’re almost certainly going to fail to pass tax reform or your empty promises on infrastructure.

Then, finally, he continued his ramblings about Obamacare and blaming Democrats because his party is incompetent:

No matter how many times I see him try to blame Democrats for his party’s failures I still laugh. Only Republicans can control the House, Senate, and White House — but blame Democrats for their inability to pass legislation.

As time goes on, and the Russia investigations continue to intensify, it seems clear that Donald Trump is becoming more and more unhinged. That’s rather frightening considering who we’re talking about here.

    I just watched a movie: Denial. How the libel cases in recent British history came to an end. David Irving, a writer and self-proclaimed historian, had sued the American academic Deborah Lipstadt for describing him as “one of the most dangerous spokespersons for Holocaust denial” in a 1996 book . David Irving kept assaulting truth and memory, even brought libel suit into court. I love to see how the defense legal team to frame him on his own lies. In a time of information exploding era, misinformation has become hard to clarify and prove. People like Trump, Bannon, and his Humpty Dumpty Communication Troops have presented such property of lies, fake news, assaulting truth, messing up memory, and repeating untruthful or already defeated argument to create faulty memory. These have been Republicans old tricks bundles, Trump definitely familiar with all, plus he understands “reality T.V. ” and has been excelling in kneeding all into a hodge-podged “reality” that his supporters have long lack of ability to see them through.

    What a chump…I’m so glad I don’t tweet, I would have been brain dead by now. Such stupidity becoming a President….what a shocker. As long as I’ve been on this planet (66 years) I have never heard or seem anyone showing off their ignorance and inadequacy so blatantly as this goofball. I sure hope he gets pulled and put in prison because there he can actually learn something about himself. He’s a dumb act to follow.
