I'll believe anything lately... but this is hard to imagine.
I get that life is imitating art and that's the whole point of the sub, but... This is from a humor column.
Given it links to the Borowitz report you are spot on. https://www.newyorker.com/humor/borowitz-report/trump-says-white-house-is-no-place-for-lying-lowl...
edit: some spelling
Andy Borowitz is a satirist, so Trump didn’t say this. Still funny though and it wouldn’t surprise me if Trump did say this.
Too much context to choose from, I'll go with...
he meant to say "dislike", not "like", simple slip of the tongue, fake news media blowing this out of proportion!
On one hand I totally believe Trump says racist ass shit behind closed doors, because he has a long history of doing racist ass shit with his businesses. He likely doesn't think what he says publicly is racist because he probably tones it down quite a bit from his private thoughts.
On the other hand, Omarosa is an unreliable source, she's a grifter.
But I will enjoy the slap fight knowing whoever loses, we all win.
Hopefully he'll have some convictions in the next few years or so.
Context: President Trump should stay out of the Iranian protests, we have enough problems in our own country! Can't even properly police White House
More than anything, this sub has taught me about what an obsessive, petty, and lonely prick DT was during Obama's presidency. Get a fucking life, dude
Well he does stay out of the protests against Saudi Arabia, even though he promised to speak out against that kind of oppression: https://www.reddit.com/sub/TrumpCriticizesTrump/comments/94wffr/while_my_opponent_accepted_millio...
Trump surely knows how to choose enemies (Canada, NATO) and friends (Putler, Kim).
It really does show how racist he truly is. He picked on everything that Obama did.
Context: she secretly recorded trump
At this point, it seems literally the only person who met Trump in person who didnt record him was Obama
President Trump particularly loathes the idea of being recorded without his knowledge
What Trump loathes is the idea of being held accountable for his words and actions, and records (paper, audio or otherwise) make this possible.
This is why he lashes out at the media, and calls them reporting his words "fake news" despite the fact that most of it just quoting him.
This is why he tears up all the stuff he reads at the White House even though people have to tape it back together.
This is why he hates recordings or likes to do "one-on-one" meetings - because he doesn't like witnesses.
He is a man who hates personal responsibility and accountability - at least when it comes to himself.
"I hope there are tapes"
Narrator: There were. They just didn't say what he thought they did.
So, does he think collusion is a bad thing or not? He's all over the map
Depends... when a fascist does it, it's not collusion. When a non-fascist does it, it's definitely collusion and needs to be investigated.
"Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower. This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics - and it went nowhere. I did not know about it!"
God damn, this guy is a moron.
Pompeo: North Korea far from living up to denuclearization vow
It's shocking how well he get along with dictator leaders but keep fighting our allies.
Is ANYONE surprised by this?
I'm not shocked at all. It's what he aspires to for himself. Total piece of narcissistic shit.
Context: Every day Pastor Brunson is imprisoned by Turkey is an indictment on Trump's 'diplomacy'. #SaveBrunson
Difference being is that Iran is an enemy state while Turkey, ostensibly, is an ally and Trump is so weak that he can't get the Pastor released (he's been held the entirety of the Trump presidency) and now Trump is heading to NJ for an 11 day vacation. I heard he plans on dedicating a round to Pastor Andy.
This would be hilarious irony if it wasn't such a sucky situation
There's also a scientist being held in Turkey. Probably another "enemy of the people" in Trumps mind.
It's funny how many of these "controversies" were attempted to be pinned on Obama. Like, nothing like this is even a blip on the political radar for either Democrats or Republicans today, and yet somehow, Obama was a MUCH worse president, when that was just about the most controversial thing Republicans could find to pin on him.
I thought it was relevant to DACA "Dreamers" but this is even worse.
Stuff like this is so uncanny it’s almost like he is looking for old tweets to refute with current policy
You forgot this.
"I am more a spy than he is."
Can we use that as admission of guilt?
This tweet is about Obama not being able to secure the release of Andrew Tahmooressi, who inadvertently crossed into Mexico with guns and ammo and was detained for several months.

“I plead the 5th your honor”
.... okay Mr Trump but if you tweets you said you “more of a spy than he was”... care to explain what you mean exactly....
“I plead the 5th”
Lock him up boys!
Probably one of the least treasonous things that’s been reported in a while.
My Lord, is that... legal?
These millionaires sure like to travel on the taxpayer's dime. I guess they didn't get to be millionaires by spending their own money.
