As far as Donald Trump’s days of delusion are concerned, on a scale of 1 – 10 (with t10 being the most delusional), Wednesday registered a solid 10. And for proof, you need not look any further than his Twitter account.
Earlier in the day, we learned that the Trump campaign’s criminal ties to the Russian government were so apparent, the FBI sent someone undercover to meet with campaign representatives not once, but TWICE in an effort to get to the bottom of it. Needless to say, Donald Trump was not too thrilled about the release of this information. So, as always, he took to Twitter with his usual “innocent victim” approach:
“Wow, word seems to be coming out that the Obama FBI ‘SPIED ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN WITH AN EMBEDDED INFORMANT.’ Andrew McCarthy says, ‘There’s probably no doubt that they had at least one confidential informant in the campaign.’ If so, this is bigger than Watergate!,” he tweeted.
I hate to follow his “wow” with a “wow” of my own, but that may be the most appropriate way to begin here. Clearly, his deranged mind has missed the mark. In true Trump fashion, he’s completely overlooked the fact that he and his campaign were being looked in on for good reason. Instead, he’d rather have everyone focus on the “real” crime committed by federal law enforcement.
How dare they try to investigate his alleged treason?!?! Especially on the heels of indictments, arrests, and plea deals involving some of his closest associates. The audacity!!!
But in his mind, none of that is pertinent, and he revealed that in this tweet:
“Congratulations America, we are now into the second year of the greatest Witch Hunt in American History.”
As you can see, he’d rather defer the focus to his self-proclaimed accomplishments, and try to prop himself up on them instead. The problem with that, though, is that none of his so-called accomplishments are accomplishments at all. It’s almost as if the man thinks he can turn this around simply by pretending he already has.
“Despite the disgusting, illegal and unwarranted Witch Hunt, we have had the most successful first 17 month Administration in U.S. history – by far! Sorry to the Fake News Media and “Haters,” but that’s the way it is!”
Ummm…it may be too late at this point, but…quick, someone please enlighten Trump about the dangers of self-proclamation.
