Trump Is Being A Blithering Idiot – AGAIN!

By Susan Kuebler

Fortunately for opinion writers and news analysts, Donald Trump does not take weekends off.  Or maybe not so fortunately, as nobody else can either if they are writing about his latest news blooper.  So far there are two being reported Sunday morning and it isn’t even noon yet.  Guess he must have an afternoon tee time.  But here are a couple of classics from Trump

Trump Claims He Invented The Word “Fake”

As with much of what Trump says, the words “No, you can’t make this stuff up” applies here.  In a “hard-hitting” interview conducted last night by Governor Mike Huckabee, father of his Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Trump made the following statement:

Click on the link in the above tweet if you don’t believe me.  But it should not surprise you.  Trump also claimed he created the term “prime the pump” a phrase that has been in use since the 1800s.  Remember, this is the same man who said “I know words.  I have the best words” at a campaign appearance in South Carolina in December of 2015

In one sense he is correct in this clip.  There is no better word than “stupid” when it comes to describing Donald Trump.  Of course, he was using it about President Obama.

Trump does deserve credit for adding a new word to the lexicon.  Who can forget the (in)famous tweet he sent that trailed off with the single word “covfefe”?  That one lit up the Internet and social media for weeks and probably helped the economy with all of the “covfefe” tee shirts and coffee cups that were sold.  Sadly though it has not made it into the Merriam-Webster dictionary because nobody, despite the claims of then Press Secretary Sean Spicer, know what the hell it means.

Trump can’t even claim to have created the term “fake news” although no doubt he will one day do so.  Hitler beat him to that in the last century when he used the word “lugenpresse” which German for “fake news.”

Trump Makes Ridiculous Comments About Senator Bob Corker

Recently, Tennessee Republican Senator Bob Corker announced he would not be seeking re-election in 2018. This came after he had questioned the President’s ability to govern in August.  At the time he said, The president has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability, nor some of the competence he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful.”   Trump immediately fired back a tweet that read “Strange statement by Bob Corker considering he is constantly asking me whether or not he should run again in ’18.  Tennessee not happy!”

Anyone familiar with how politics works would know that Corker would be seeking advice from his family, his staff, his supporters, and his donors before reaching a decision on whether or not to seek re-election.  The notion he would consult with a man who he had just stated lacked the stability and competence to govern on whether he should seek re-election is beyond ludicrous.  But Trump, as we all know by now, is not a person who can let go of anything or anyone who slights him in the least.

This morning on Twitter he went after Senator Corker again:

Does Donald Trump really expect anyone to believe that Corker BEGGED him for his endorsement?  Remember, Trump is the man whose own lawyers would not meet with him alone because they wanted a witness to confirm when he lied to them.  Or that Corker asked to be Secretary of State and Trump said ‘NO THANKS.”

This is why James Comey always made contemporaneous notes of any meetings he had privately with the president.  Which turned out to be an extremely wise move on his part.  In fact, former U.S. Attorney General Preet Bahara confirmed as much when he sent out the following tweet in response to Trump this morning:

It is doubtful that Senator Corker took any contemporaneous notes for a meeting that likely never happened.  But if Trump hopes to get ANY legislation passed this year, he would do well to remember that Senator Corker is one of the 51 votes he desperately needs in the Senate.  Only an idiot would go out of his way to deliberately alienate a Senator whose support he needs.  But I repeat myself.

However, Bob Corker made his own reply to Trump’s tweets, via Twitter:
