Standing on the White House lawn having an impromptu back and forth with reporters, Trump delivered a bewildered, and bewildering, diatribe about Special Counsel Robert Mueller. He was quite confused, or at least claimed to be, that Mueller even exists and thinks it has something to do with his “greatest electoral victory in the history in the country.”
“No collusion, I have no idea when it will be released,” the president said. “It’s interesting that a man gets appointed by a deputy and he writes a report, you know, never figured that one out. Man gets appointed by a deputy and he writes a report.”
Well Donald, there’s this thing called a special counsel. The DOJ appoints them to investigate wrongdoing by those high up in government. You really haven’t figured that out by now? Are you daft? And he just kept going:
“I had the greatest electoral victory in the history in the country, tremendous success,” Trump added. “Tens of millions of voters and now somebody’s going to write a report who never got a vote. We’ll see what the report says. Let’s see if it’s fair. I have no idea when it’s going to be released.”…
“I just won an election with 63 million votes or so, 63 million. I had 206 to 223 in the electoral college, 306 to 223, and I’m saying to myself, ‘wait a minute, I just won one of the greatest elections of all time in the history of this country,’ and even you will admit that and now I have someone writing a report that never got a vote?” Trump said. “It’s called the Mueller report. So explain that because my voters don’t get it, and I don’t get it.”
Why would anyone bother trying to explain anything to your voters? They’re morons. You even said it yourself, you could shoot someone in the middle of 5th Avenue and not lose a single vote. And you said it like that’s a good thing. It’s not. It’s cult-like behavior and very dangerous.
