Today, Drumpfenfarten went on a tirade that defies all logic and shows just how totally unhinged he is.  I'll start with the full video below.  Warning: It is almost 2 hours long.

 

Raw Story — President Donald Trump held a press conference today in which he once again boasted about his November election win and attacked the mainstream media for producing “fake news.”

But beyond the usual boasting and bashing, the president made several jaw-dropping statements that were surprising even by his standards. Below, we’ll go over the seven craziest moments at today’s press conference.

  1. Trump says that while the leaks coming out of his administration are real, the news stories being written about them are still fake news. When asked to explain the seeming contradiction in his desire to both crack down on leaks in his administration and to attack news stories based on those leaks, the president simply said the leaks from the administration were real, but the news they generated was fake.”The leaks are real,” Trump said. “The leaks are absolutely real. The news is fake because so much of the news is fake.”
  2. Trump falsely claims that his electoral college victory this past November was the biggest since Ronald Reagan’s. With 306 electoral college votes, Trump’s margin of victory last year was smaller than not only Ronald Reagan’s, but also George H.W. Bush’s victory in 1988, Bill Clinton’s two victories in 1992 and 1996, and Barack Obama’s two wins in 2008 and 2012.When confronted by this, Trump simply replied that he “was given that information,” without acknowledging that the information was false.

These are the first two of seven wacky moments in Drumpfenfarten's weapons-grade crazy press conference.  If you don't have time to watch the video, these will give you a flavour of the press conference.

And there are a number of reactions to this so called press conference.  In this first one, Shep Smith from Faux Noise lays waste to Drumpf.

Huffington Post — After President Donald Trump spent much of his Thursday press conference lecturing and demeaning reporters, Fox News anchor Shepard Smith defended the role of the media, reminding Trump that “you owe this to the American people” to answer reporters’ questions.

“It’s crazy what we’re watching every day. It’s absolutely crazy,” Smith said, summing up the Thursday face-off. “He keeps repeating ridiculous, throwaway lines that are not true at all and sort of avoiding this issue of Russia as if we’re some kind of fools for asking the question. Really?!”

There are some humourous reactions to take care of your pounding headache!

Huffington Post — President Donald Trump’s combative news conference on Thursday got a YUGE reaction on social media, and the reviews weren’t exactly glowing. 

I tried to get one of the pictures over for you, but I couldn't manage it — kept getting an error message.  (However Nameless has used it in his comment so I'm editing it in. Thanks Nameless)  So have a look and pay particular attention to Ben & Jerry's All Natural Impeachmint Ice Cream.

According to another article in Raw Story most of which is not related,

Pres. Donald Trump’s wild and unhinged press conference on Thursday set tongues wagging across the Internet and, apparently, in the halls of Congress as well.

CNN’s John King said he received a message from a Republican senator who wrote, “He should do this with a therapist, not on live television.”

At what was ostensibly meant to be the announcement of Trump’s new nomination for Secretary of Labor on Thursday, the president launched into a series of long-winded tirades where he lambasted the press, U.S. intelligence agencies, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and anyone else he perceives as hostile to his agenda.

There you have it!  Drumpfenfarten at his best usual . . . bluster, liar extraordinaire, xenophobic, racist, misogynist, and narcissistic self.

TC, I think we're going to have to find a new word other than InsaniTEA to describe the philosophy of Drumpfenfarten and his lock-step Republican minions.

  1. I could not bring myself to watch the "press conference" of Drumpf. Every time I see Drumpf anywhere on the net, I grin and bear it all and try hard not to grit & grind my teeth. It is hard work to prevent myself from a nauseous attack. sigh… A definite a 5-star barf bag alert!

    Drumpf: "The dishonesty of the press is out of control". If anything is out of control, it is Drumpf! So much disinformation is coming out of Drumpf's mouth that the press needs to report the disinformation as lies. If anything is out of control, it is Drumpf, period. 

    Love this comment: "CNN’s John King said he received a message from a Republican senator who wrote, “He should do this with a therapist, not on live television.” Made me laugh.

    Even Drumpf’s new nomination for Secretary of Labor, Alexander Acosta, is highly suspect.    

    As for coming up with a new descriptive name in place of "InsaniTEA", I'll defer and  leave that up to the more politically creative name-dropper / name-namer to others. I tried but failed miserably. lol.
    .

  2. As mentioned above that "Even Drumpf’s new nomination for Secretary of Labor, Alexander Acosta, is highly suspect." Here is  an interview with Alan Pyke, an editor with ThinkProgress, who argues Trump’s backup choice "has skeletons in his closet, too." 

    Here is the link to that interview on Amy Goodmen's Democracy Now! show. Video: -9min and includes a text: Link:

  3. He also claimed there was no chaos, and that his White House is rfunning like Trump.

    I agree on the InsaniTEA.  I jusat haven't thought of it yet!

    Thanks!!

  4. Really glad you found and posted those HuffPo Tweets – very enjoyable!

    And our country could certainly use a double-dip of Ben & Jerry's ImpeachMint Ice Cream!

    There's no surer sign you're Ranting & Raving than if you have to claim, while blathering away, that you are NOT Ranting & Raving.

    And I apologize for any unkind thoughts I may have had about Toronto's weird Mayor, Bob Ford (RIP).  Karma is a bitch!

    Bottom line of that bizarro "Press Conference" Whine Fest – if there ever was any doubt, Trump proved that he is definitely …

  5. I think my favorite tweet was "Dear America – Your president appears to be broken, have you tried switching him off then on again?"  No, there is no way I am watching the whole video.  I can't stand to look at him at all.

    Nameless, do you suppose B&J could make that gluten free?  I could easily use a couple of gallons.  Or more.

  6. RS: I watched a small part of his speech, (gag), and quite honestly, it was all about "me, me, me:!!! He exaggerates, lies, and is way out of line with the reporters. He blames the Dems for doing their job, and hates anyone who talks negatively about him. The treatment of our immigrants, refugees, sanctuary cities, is repugnant, and the only REAL threat to the American People is Trump, and his cohorts. imho.

    HP: Kudos to Mr. Smith for his reporting, and his take-down of Farfinnewgin. We all know how dt is, and he's just setting the record straight! Love the picture of Ben & Jerry's new ice cream, I want some!!  I bet it tastes delicious! I

    LOVE the pictures, Lynn, of the dt sandwich!!! Priceless! 😉

    Thanks Lynn, for your post, and enjoyed reading the comments too.

  7. Ahhh, minds and ditches and all that, Lynn. I was working on a perspective on this "press conference" from afar, but I think it would be a bit of an overkill to publish that tomorrow.  Your coverage is excellent and very thorough, so with the job so well done, I can perhaps take a rest this weekend.

  8. I know it is very late, but I've been away, and somewhat under the weather…although the weather is, tody, ridiculously mild for February.  My lovely wife's mother had to walk the last 2 blocks to the hospital, in a blizzard in N.J., here, on this calendar day, in order to deliver her, after their car ran out of gas!

    I do not watch anything of Orange Pig!  But, he does seem tom be quite unhinged, love the picture!
