Trump Unleashes Bizarre Word Salad of Utter Nonsense During Saturday Morning Twitter Rant

I’ve written about quite a few Donald Trump Twitter meltdowns, but few were as unhinged and incoherent as the one he went on Saturday morning where he whined about everything from health care, to the media (of course), and even seemed to suggest that late night hosts are coordinating with Democrats against him.

To call this mess a word salad doesn’t do it justice, so let’s just get right into it.

He began his morning by doing what he does best, bragging about himself:

As always, when the news is positive about him, it’s true. When it’s negative, it’s “fake news.”

The only flaw in Trump’s logic here is that, while low-dollar donations have spiked since Trump’s rise to the top of the GOP, at $40.3 million, that level isn’t unprecedented. According to that same article from The Washington Post, in 2003, the RNC raised $42.6 million from contributions of less than $200.

So while it’s true there’s definitely been a spike, Trump implying that the RNC has never seen anything like this, which he’s clearly doing, isn’t accurate.

That’s when things went completely off the rails:

I can’t help but laugh at a man who thinks Fox News is a credible source of information whining about “equal time.” He clearly doesn’t seem to mind that the vast majority of Fox News’ broadcast schedule is tailored around propaganda and telling Republicans what they want to hear rather than the actual truth — because that benefits him.

Also, I really don’t know what he’s trying to argue here.

Is he accusing Democrats of coordinating with late night talk show hosts to team up against him or that we should have laws that dictate to these shows what they can or cannot cover (aka basically state-run media) — or both?

I’d also like to point out that Trump’s always repeating one of his many lies on television. To act as if he’s not being given enough attention is ridiculous.

Then again, why am I even trying to find reason within the ramblings of an unhinged madman?

Moving on:

As reports surface about Trump actively trying to sabotage Obamacare, which will cause Americans to pay a lot more for health care next year, he’s blatantly contributing to the problems with the health care law.

There’s absolutely no “deal” he could work out with Chuck Schumer to get health care passed that anyone in his party would support. That’s the part of this that he seems unable to grasp. He’s repeatedly whined about Democrats not wanting to work with Republicans, but the truth is, what Democrats want to do is expand Obamacare, turning it into a single-payer health care system. That’s the exact opposite of what Republicans want. There’s no “compromise” to be made with Democrats that would garner enough GOP support to ever pass.

Then again, this is most likely Trump sending out a public warning to Republicans that they better do what he wants or else he might work with Democrats again. Because when you get down to it, the way Trump “negotiates” isn’t really to negotiate with strong leadership, it’s to throw a hissy fit and demand people do what he wants — or else.

Finally, Trump finished off his morning outburst by attacking NBC News for exposing the fact that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called him a “f*cking moron” a few weeks ago:

No, his supporters, whom he’s admitted in the past are mindless sheep who’ll support him no matter what, will “get it.” And by “get it” I mean they’ll believe any lie or conspiracy he tells them.

As I mentioned earlier, as usual, when the news is positive it’s real, yet when it’s negative it’s “fake.” It’s really sad that his supporters don’t realize this scam by now. Then again, he’s really the leader of his own cult more so than he is an actual United States “president.”

In what’s become almost a weekly tradition, Donald Trump seems to save his most outlandish Twitter rants for Saturday morning. Because nothing inspires confidence in a “president” quite like seeing your Commander-in-Chief spend over 3 hours on a Saturday morning throwing a tempter tantrum on social media.
