The Twitter-machine is back in business! Donald Trump, the notorious rage-tweeter has given us yet another reason to think he’s certifiably insane, or at least profoundly unintelligent.
Following his remarkably immature reaction to the “golden shower” story that BuzzFeed and CNN ran, Trump has been on a roll crucifying the media outlets for being “FAKE”, having published the story with unverified sources.
The probably fake story however isn’t what we’re here for — it’s to join together in laughter at the unstable president-elect.
For more than 18 hours now and counting, Donald Trump has intermittently tweeted about the “FAKE NEWS” to remind his followers that he did not engage in the alleged activities described in that report.
Fast-forwarding to Wednesday evening, Trump has bestowed another piece of his unending wisdom. He tweeted:
‘We had a great News Conference at Trump Tower today. A couple of FAKE NEWS organizations were there but the people truly get what’s going on’

Oh goodness, excuse us while we bust a gut! Donald Trump’s “news conference” today was a slew of profoundly untrue statements, jumbled sentences and tripping over simple words. He barely fielded any questions from the small group of attending reporters. It was essentially a poorly executed attempt to belittle his conflicts of interest in advance of his inauguration.
This tweet, alongside all of the rest from the release of the alleged “golden shower” information, really demonstrates how childish Donald Trump is. Consistently demeaning media outlets with the exact same insult is as unimaginative as it is immature.
Come on Donald, give up Twitter already. It’s just embarrassing.
