Trump Tweets Disgraceful, Late Night Literal Fake News — AGAIN

It’s long been established that the president’s seeming addiction to calling news reports he’s not fond of “fake news” has nothing to do with a desire to stand up for the truth on his part. Rather, the numerous times he’s called a news outlet “fake news” have been so he can “clear the field” so to speak, letting him push his own bunch of nonsense and claim it’s true.

Concurrent to this, to suggest that the president is infatuated with himself would be a gross understatement. He is — by his own admission, even — the center of his universe.

On Friday, he tweeted a message about TIME Magazine’s upcoming ‘Person of the Year’ award — but it’s nonsense, according to the publication.

The president wrote:

‘Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!’

According to TIME Magazine, that’s a bunch of nonsense.

The publication’s response to the president on Twitter reads:

‘The President is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year. TIME does not comment on our choice until publication, which is December 6.’

So there you have it — the president has lied yet again. And we’re supposed to trust this guy to not run the country into the ground why exactly?
