Donald Trump’s 75-minute outburst proves once and for all that he’s utterly off his rocker; may his demise please come quickly
Donald Trump and the press are living in two different realities. He has failed to transition from a brash campaigning candidate to a dignified President of the United States of America and already the wheels of his administration are falling off. The press – whom, in Hitler-esque fashion, he brands “false news” and “failing liars” and bypasses in favour of rants on Twitter and mass rallies – have been sidelined and mocked but thankfully now they’re beginning to fight back.
Yesterday, the man the darling of the alt-right Milo Yiannopoulos calls “Daddy” went totally overboard during a hastily organised press conference. Donald Trump illustrated himself for what he truly is: An unhinged lunatic and someone without any capability to understand the essential fact that he has to be rational. When, for example, the BBC’s Jon Sopel asked the POTUS a question, he was met with:
DT: “Where are you from?”
JS: “The BBC”.
DT: “There’s another beauty… Impartial. Just like CNN. I know who you are”.
Many other members of the press were dealt with in a similar fashion during the 75-minute long event and of the oddest press conference ever given by a president, this morning, Eric Ham, a political analyst, told the BBC:
“The knives are out in his political circle. There are 4,000 political appointments that [Trump] needs to make and he’s very far behind where Obama was at the same stage… He is very behind”.
“That press conference was him speaking to his supporters… They see the media as out of touch, a Washington based, elite… He has to govern for the entire country, not just those who elected him. For how long will the elected representatives stand behind this?”
Trump – a man driven by only a desire for self-publicity and making money – has also failed to understand that the press are there to ask questions about his policy decisions and that America and the world have the right to hold him to account.
For failing to grasp such a crucial detail, this mentally unbalanced individual is now headed on the path to destruction. Only time will tell how long he’ll last but for the sake of us all, may ‘The Donald’s’ demise please be quick.
