There are things Donald Trump will never tell you. For instance, he will never say publicly how very much the interviews Comey has given on his book tour are far more damaging to the president than the former FBI director. He will never admit that the memos Republicans in Congress finally got released to the public corroborates everything Comey has said since his firing and do not in any way clear him in the Trump/Russia investigation nor the belief by the public that Trump attempted to obstruct justice. He will also never say that the memos and the statements Comey has painted a picture of Trump as being incompetent, inexperienced, and far more concerned with his own public image than the good of the American people.
Trump continued his attacks on James Comey (whom he mistakenly has nicknamed “Shadey James Comey” in a laughable misspelling of “shady”) on Friday morning, insisting that he “leaked and lied,” neither of which appear to be true. In yet another instance of things Trump will never admit publicly, he will also never say what is true and what the American public learned during Comey’s interview with Rachel Maddow, which is that only two people in the world can approve leaks to the press around FBI investigations and those two people at the time of Trump’s accusations that they “leaked” information were James Comey and Andrew McCabe.

He will also never admit that his one signature accomplishment since taking office is highly unpopular with the American public, adds trillions of dollars to the national debt, and if Democrats had proposed the same bill, Republicans would have ranted and raged about debts and deficits and voted it down. He did finally admit, however, that they are temporary and all the “gains” he insists the American people have seen from them (a whole $1.50 per week!) will soon disappear.
Another thing that Trump will not admit? He doesn’t have the power to do anything he wants. For instance, he cannot control the price of oil. He cannot make a phone call and demand that it be lowered so Americans pay less for gas. Being president does not give him the authority to wave a magic wand, subvert Congress, make demands of the Supreme Court, or change the truth to fit his own narrative.
He may never admit it, but Twitter is wise to what is true and what is a lie. See some of their comments on the president’s tweets below:
