This Could Be the Most Ridiculous Statement The White House Has Ever Released Under Any President

When it comes to Donald Trump, nothing really surprises me anymore.

For instance, an absolutely bizarre statement the White House put out that’s not only completely ridiculous, but it seems as if it’s something Trump wrote about himself.

Here’s what the very real and official White House statement said:

President Trump has a magnetic personality and exudes positive energy, which is infectious to those around him. He has an unparalleled ability to communicate with people, whether he is speaking to a room of three or an arena of 30,000. He has built great relationships throughout his life and treats everyone with respect. He is brilliant with a great sense of humor … and an amazing ability to make people feel special and aspire to be more than even they thought possible.

This was apparently Trump’s “official White House response” to reports that he berates, insults, and belittles members of his staff.

When I first read this statement I couldn’t help but think of last year’s “doctor’s report” Trump released where his “doctor” said he that had “extraordinary stamina” and would be the “healthiest person ever elected president.” A letter that many people, myself included, believe Trump wrote personally, or at least instructed his doctor how to write.

I’ve honestly never witnessed anyone as egotistical and insecure as Donald Trump. He’s so emotionally fragile that he constantly either needs to brag about himself or have people bragging about him. That’s why he’s such a big fan of Twitter. It’s the perfect social media platform for him to grab his phone with his tiny little hands, send out a tweet that’s the perfect length for the depths of his attention span, and get instant feedback and praise from his followers.

I’m not sure what’s sadder about this statement: That he’s such a fragile little snowflake his neurotic insecurity drives him to put out statements such as this, that he thinks people are stupid enough to not realize he likely wrote this in a pathetic attempt to brag about himself, or that there are millions of his supporters who are stupid enough to believe it’s true and wasn’t written by him.

Then there’s always the reality that the rest of the world’s leaders are obviously going to see this statement. Because nothing makes the United States look like a strong, stable, and well-run nation quite like the White House putting out what amounts to nothing more than an ego-stroking PR statement which looks like it was concocted by Trump himself.

This is just another example — in what seems like a non-stop growing list of them — proving what a national embarrassment Donald Trump is to this country.

    This reads like something the dear leaders from other countries like Russia, Cuba, North Korea, china would put out. Guess what! If we don’t do something quick USA might be on the list, soon.

    I can’t tell anymore if what I see as news coming out of the White House is real or another The Onion parody.

    This reminds me of 6th-grade love notes:
    ___ check here if you think I’m cute
    ___ check here if you like me
    ___ check here if you want to go steady
    Poor 45*. He just doesn’t have a clue.

    It looks to me to have been written by a staffer who was being satirical. Someone either wanting to resign or who feels safely anonymous and therefore not fearful of losing their job. It’s actually funny if you read it that way.

    Who the heck is stroking this mans ego now… laughable

    • Ben Davidson

      Who’s stroking his ego? Easy answer…..he is !!

      • Cynthia Shell-Terrell

        That’s the only part of him anyone could even possibly stomach stroking!!

      • bohicasis

        We do know he couldn’t have possibly have penned it!

  • Jo MacArthur

    45 couldn’t have written it himself. Too many big words. Maybe Kim Jong Un did; sounds like him.

  • Jenn

    No way Trump wrote that. It’s covfefe. I mean, coherent.

  • Mark Eric Zellmer

    All I can say is covfefe.

    • Carol Navin

  • Floridatexan

    Hope Hicks’ little paean to the perpetuation of Trumpian fictions and
    Alternative Facts, she will likely be Trump’s new favorite person for
    oh, maybe a week. I have to wonder if he was pacing behind her while
    she transcribed his words into actual College-Educated English.

    Are you fucking NUTS?? Covfefe to you!!
