Palm Beach, FL, United States (4E) – Donald Trump revealed the total extent of his boundless ignorance, limitless madness and psychotic delusions in a daunting interview with the New York Times full of outright lies and deranged rants.
Trump’s impromptu 30 minute-long interview with NYT reporter Mike Schmidt on Dec. 28 on the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida targeted on absolving himself of any wrongdoing within the Russia scandal and blaming the Democrats for it, whereas heaping reward on himself for his alleged greatness as a president regardless of overwhelming proof on the contrary.
Fact checkers discovered that Trump made false or deceptive statements “at a rate of one every 75 seconds” in the course of the interview. That fee of false claims may truly be greater as a result of components of the interview have been off the report.
Among probably the most lunatic claims made by Trump made in the course of the interview:
* A superior understanding of public coverage superior to any president in American historical past. “I know the details of taxes better than anybody. Better than the greatest CPA. I know the details of healthcare better than most, better than most.”
* An unfettered proper to do what he needs with the Department of Justice. “What I’ve done is, I have absolute right to do what I want to do with the Justice Department.”
* Claiming the Democrats absolved him from any collusion with Russia. “Virtually every Democrat has said there is no collusion. There is no collusion. . . . I saw Dianne Feinstein the other day on television saying there is no collusion.”
“I think it’s been proven that there is no collusion.”
* It’s the Democrats which are colluding with the Russians. “There was collusion with the Russians and the Democrats. A lot of collusion … Starting with the dossier. But going into so many other elements. And Podesta’s firm.”
* The Electoral College is biased in favor of Democrats. “They (Democrats) made the Russian story up as a hoax, as a ruse, as an excuse for losing an election that in theory Democrats should always win with the Electoral College. The electoral college is so much better suited to the Democrats.”
* Claims he did not lose in Alabama with the defeat of Roy Moore, whom he closely endorsed. “I endorsed him (Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore). It became a much closer race because of my endorsement. People don’t say that. They say, ‘Oh, Donald Trump lost.’ I didn’t lose. I brought him up a lot.”
* The “fake news media” wants him. That’s why he’ll win re-election in 2020. “I’m going to win another four years because newspapers, television, all forms of media will tank if I’m not there. Because without me, their ratings are going down the tubes.”
* He has extraordinary affect over Congress and that Republican lawmakers “love me.” Media reviews proceed to confirm that almost all Republican lawmakers do not like Trump, a lot much less love him. Some Republican congressmen and senators deal with Trump with undisguised contempt. Trump’s try and “repeal and replace” Obamacare, for which he claimed to have gained over 100 wavering GOP congressmen, failed.
* Claims “my base is stronger than it’s ever been” in backing him. That’s a lie. Trump is the least-popular first-year president within the historical past of polling. He started his presidency with the approval of 45 p.c of Americans within the Gallup Poll. His approval now stands beneath 40 p.c, and has remained at this degree for seven consecutive months.
During the Alabama and Virginia elections each gained by Democrats, Trump drove down Republican assist amongst college-educated suburban voters, particularly ladies.
