One Tweet From Trump on Monday is a Perfect Example He’s Nothing But a Self-Promoting Con Artist

As someone who discusses and follows politics, checking in every morning to see what nonsense Donald Trump decided to tweet about that day has become part of my routine.



While Monday was a fairly tame morning by Trump’s standards, one tweet, in particular, stood out as what I feel is a perfect example of what a self-promoting con artist he is:

Where to begin.

I guess we can start out with Trump’s rather hilarious “math skills.” The GOP is undefeated in congressional races, just as long as you ignore the ones they lost. Apparently those don’t count.

But that’s exactly how Trump’s mind works. He always likes to brag about anything he feels he can spin into something positive for him (often trying to take credit for things he had nothing to do with), while acting as if the negative doesn’t exist.

This was further displayed in how he knew Gillespie and Moore would lose, despite the fact that he endorsed both and pushed hard for both candidates to win. While it’s true he did endorse Luther Strange during the Alabama primary, it’s absurd for him to act as if he wasn’t putting a lot of effort into trying to get Moore elected. The same with Gillespie, as well.

Then,  of course, he “predicted” that he would win. Because it’s apparently unique for a political candidate to claim that they’re going to win their election.


However, the truth is, the fact that Trump felt the need to send out a tweet like this is proof that he’s worried. This wasn’t a message from a strong, confident person simply trying to hype up his supporters. This was a message of worry and insecurity from someone who’s afraid the 2018 midterms could be an absolute disaster for his party and, in turn, his “presidency.” It’s one thing for him to try to distance himself from the embarrassing defeats of Gillespie and Moore, even if you’d have to be a moron to buy into his propaganda about not really backing either candidate, but he won’t be able to do that next November if all across this country Republicans are defeated, potentially handing back power in Congress to Democrats.

Though I’m sure Trump would come up with some other preposterous excuse (or conspiracy) that his brainwashed supporters would, once again, be gullible enough to believe.

But this is who Donald Trump is, has been, and always will be. He’s a self-promoting fraud who tries to take credit for anything positive, never accepts responsibility for anything negative, while constantly trying to portray himself as some sort of all-knowing deity who’s always right — when he’s actually a bumbling buffoon who has absolutely no idea what he’s doing.
