The truth is coming out. Trump’s fury at NBC News has nothing to do with “fake news.” He is enraged because his own Secretary of State called him a moron.
Here is MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell detailing the enraged White House chaos:
It appears that Trump didn’t know that his own Secretary of State called him a moron until the story broke on NBC News.
As NBC reported, “Trump was furious when he saw the NBC News report, which was published shortly before 6 a.m. Wednesday. For the next two hours the president fumed inside the White House, venting to Kelly, officials said.”
Trump was preparing to go to Las Vegas to meet with victims of the worst mass shooting in US history, but instead, he spent his time fuming because his top diplomat called him a moron.
From the beginning of his presidency, Trump has provided evidence that he is a moron. Trump doesn’t believe the evidence of his inaugural crowd size. He thinks that illegal voters stole the popular vote from him. He believes that Barack Obama spied on him. Trump and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have engaged in screaming matches because McConnell is convinced that Trump has no idea how government works. Trump thinks he is no longer a civilian because he is president. Trump believes that executive orders are legislation, and the list goes on and on.
Trump’s ego must be destroyed because he has never been treated this way. No one had ever dared to tell Trump that he’s a moron before he was in politics. Trump is hearing the truth about himself, and the truth hurts. A president who can’t handle reality is getting confronted with the fact that he is not intellectually up to the challenge and failing in the White House.
