Trump saw reality everywhere

President Trump must be the most famous non-reader polymath

(he may hold a PhD in twitterology from the Jack Dorsey University)

Trump tweets on almost any topic with full confidence and gut instinct

he lies openly and shuts down reporters countering his blatant lies

Trump told reporters the crowd was huge at his inauguration

he gave the figure of between 1 to 1.5 million people

the point was to prove Obama inauguration had less people

but the photos belie his claim: Obama’s crowd was much bigger

White House spokesman Sean Spicer went to extremes:

“This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period.”

the inauguration photos were edited to prove the government lies

Trump doesn’t want to believe in global warming and so claimed:

“The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.”

he ignores scientific evidence:

“Ice storm rolls from Texas to Tennessee – I’m in Los Angeles and it’s freezing. Global warming is a total, and very expensive, hoax!”

“Any and all weather events are used by the GLOBAL WARMING HOAXSTERS to justify higher taxes to save our planet! They don’t believe it $$$$!”

Trump began tweeting his hoax theories on global warming in 2012

NASA’s 2005 clarification on weather & global warming:

“The difference between weather and climate is a measure of time. Weather is what conditions of the atmosphere are over a short period of time, and climate is how the atmosphere “behaves” over relatively long periods of time.”

President Trump boasted the greatness of his Foundation:

“My charity [Trump Foundation] was great. I gave a lot of money away.”

the Foundation proved to be as phony as Trump himself

to expect any good deed from Trump is not possible –

unless there’s much more in return –

the Foundation was closed down by the court order in 2019.

Most reporters feel frustrated at Trump press conferences

one reason: Trump lies unabashedly on almost every issue

and uses his power to shut the reporters up

although not all reporters are very honest in reporting

the sincere ones decided to give Trump a taste of his own medicine

they told Trump that the podium he was using was a gift from Obama

(now everyone knows how much Trump hated former president Obama

he had joined other liars in claiming that Obama was not born in the US)

Trump suddenly moved away a couple of feet from the podium

he then announced that there was no podium over there

this was too much for the trustworthy reporters to accept Trump’s claim

they rushed to Trump, grabbed his head, banged it on the podium real hard

within few seconds Trump screamed:

“I see the podium, and I see lots of podiums, everywhere.

I can even hear podiums saying they belong to Barack Obama.”

This was the first time Trump saw, heard, spoke reality.

This was a scenario from alternate reality.
