A little more about that Trump press conference

Toronto Star, Feb. 17, 2017.


So much cray cray and so little time....but let's start with this word salad:
“Here’s the problem: The public, they read newspapers, they see television, but they don’t know if it’s true or false, because they’re not involved ... I’m involved. I’ve been involved with this stuff all my life. But I’m involved, so I know when you’re telling the truth and when you’re not.”

More crazy and scary Trump quotes here.


This from the Minority President Report compiled by former Miami Herald newsman Marty Merzer:
- By now, you know plenty about that ludicrous, profoundly unsettling 77-minute news conference by the Minority President, and there really aren’t enough electrons in the universe for us to do it justice here. The popular term “unhinged” no longer is sufficient.

- He brazenly repeated his electoral-vote lie in front of a room packed with reporters who knew the truth – and one of them challenged him directly. Asserting that he is not anti-Semitic, he humiliated an obviously Jewish reporter who explicitly did not accuse him of being anti-Semitic. He patronized a black female reporter and asked her to run a secretarial errand for him.

- He uttered non sequiturs and pure nonsense. “The leaks are absolutely true; the news is false.” “Drugs are becoming cheaper than candy bars.” “You know what uranium is right? It's a thing called nuclear weapons and other things, like lots of things are done with uranium, including some bad things."

- He repeatedly asserted that President Obama left him with an unparalleled “mess” to clean up. He claimed to have made great progress already on behalf of working-class Americans. He denied that his White House is buffeted by administrative and operational chaos, and he claimed that reports to the contrary are invented by the media as part of its conspiracy against him All of that is manifestly not true.
