Donald Trump clearly lives in a reality that is his and his alone. With regard to Thursday’s horrible failure of a press conference, he posted a late night/early morning tweet that once again shows how disconnected he is:

To Trump, it obviously does not matter that an overwhelming number of media outlets and everyday citizens regard the press conference as yet another smear on his time in office. He could have and should’ve displayed great candor in addressing Michael Flynn, Russia, and other matters of national security. Instead, Trump used the press conference to grandstand, attack the media, encourage and display the ignorant application of stereotypes regarding people with brown skin, minimize the threat to national security caused by Michael Flynn/praise Flynn, and generally embarrass the United States of America.

Rush Limbaugh is a racist who still regularly displays behavior that makes him look more like an active drug user than the recovering addict he claims to be. For Trump, Limbaugh is somehow a credible measure of success. Something is sorely wrong with that picture.

Perhaps a better measure of Thursday’s press conference is the press who, from across the party/political spectrum, denounced Trump’s behavior. There was Chuck Todd who held nothing back:

In response to Trump’s allusion that her brown skin somehow made her the automatic best person to openly ask to arrange a meeting with the Congressional Black Caucus, April Ryan put Trump in his place:

When Fox News starts turning on Republican politicians, something surely isn’t right in the milk! Even Shepard Smith criticized Donald Trump. Smith boldly took a stand and argued:

‘It’s crazy what we’re watching every day. It’s absolutely crazy. He keeps repeating ridiculous, throwaway lines that are not true at all and sort of avoiding this issue of Russia as if we’re some kind of fools for asking the question. Really? Your opposition was hacked and the Russians were responsible for it and your people were on the phone with Russia on the same day it was happening and we’re fools for asking the questions? No sir. We have a right to know. You call us fake news and put us down like children for asking questions on behalf of the American people.’

However, the most telling feedback about Trump’s press conference came from the everyday American. They didn’t hold back, either:

Once again, the people have spoken.
