Donald Trump has been on more than one public egomaniac trip in the past. There’s nothing he’s ever done that isn’t the “biggest,” the “best,” or the “greatest” thing any president has ever done. Modesty is not exactly his strong suit.
Now, apparently, we all owe our very lives to President Trump.
Not only does Trump believe that he’s earned a Nobel Peace Prize for his “talks” with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, now he believes he averted an imminent war that could have come at any time by going to Singapore and making promises with no way to verify that any of the concessions the U.S. was asking for would be honored.
North Korea, apparently, is more trustworthy than the American news media or the Democrats, both of whom Trump refers to as “the opposition party.” Americans are to believe a president who racked up more than 2,000 lies in the first year of his presidency and a ruthless dictator who starves his people and systematically murders and oppresses them over photos that show that North Korea has not only continued to advance their nuclear warfare program, but that they’ve taken steps to do it secretly under the U.S. radar.
Trump already told the American people that if it should turn out that he was wrong to trust Kim, he would “make up some excuse.” It seems now he’s not making excuses, he’s just continuing to pretend he didn’t make a mistake at all.
Twitter was also not buying Trump’s nonsense. See some of their responses below:
