Here Donald Trump goes again, trying to bend reality to fit into his narrative. Normally, being the chief of staff to the president of the United States is one of the most sought after, powerful positions in Washington, D.C. Unfortunately, POTUS’s White House has become such a pit of vipers that no one wants the job. This was his solution.
POTUS decided that he would just tell people that ten people “are vying for” his chief of staff job. Yet, when the young man Trump chose to replace John Kelly bailed to spend more time with his family, people knew that something was very wrong. Trump tweeted “Fake News:”
‘Fake News has it purposely wrong. Many, over ten, are vying for and wanting the White House Chief of Staff position. Why wouldn’t someone want one of the truly great and meaningful jobs in Washington. Please report news correctly. Thank you!’
Trump picked an odd day to blame the press for his problems. TIME just pronounced “The Guardians” and “The War On Truth” as person of the year. The commander-in-chief lost, he came in second place. Ironically, he was responsible for causing the issue to become so important.
The last notable event was when he gave Saudi Arabia’s crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) a pass for torturing, assassinating, and dismembering The Washington Post columnist, Jamal Khashoggi, a truth-teller:
‘Jamal Khashoggi is the Washington Post columnist murdered for his criticism of the Saudi crown prince. Maria Ressa is the editor of a Philippine news website renowned for its critical coverage of its president’s controversially violent policies. Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo are two Reuters journalists who were arrested in Myanmar while investigating a massacre of Rohingya Muslims.’
People have begun to associate the term “Fake News” with Trump, not the media.
The Twitter World went nuts. Check out some of our favorites below:
