The New York Times reported this week and some of Mueller’s assistant prosecutors have vented their frustrations about Attorney General Barr’s summary of the report, saying the information in the report is far more damaging to Trump than that summary suggests. Trump attacked them on Twitter, saying the article is based on fake sources and therefore “totally illegal.”
The New York Times had no legitimate sources, which would be totally illegal, concerning the Mueller Report. In fact, they probably had no sources at all! They are a Fake News paper who have already been forced to apologize for their incorrect and very bad reporting on me!

How does Trump know that the Times don’t have legitimate sources for the story? He doesn’t, of course, he just wants it to be true, needs it to be true and thus, through the power of delusional transference, is magically IS true. I’m not sure what he thinks is “totally illegal” here or what law he thinks they’ve broken; neither does he, of course. He just says whatever he thinks he needs to say at any given time. Whether its true or not is totally irrelevant to him.
