Donald Trump circles the drain with more lies

Trump’s Electoral College Win Was Not the Biggest Since Reagan- by PETER ALEXANDER and CARRIE DANN

Although Donald Trump exhibited bizarre behavior at his 77 minute marathon Feb 16, news conference, the one undeniable moment he'll never erase as "fake news" came from journalist Peter Alexander.  What was most telling about this presser exchange was how Donald Trump immediately blamed somebody else for his unfactual "false" information. I suspect if there's one moment Donald Trump could erase from the video, it would be his exchange with Peter Alexander. Too late!

Trump’s Electoral College Victory
Ranks 46th in 58 Elections

Donald J. Trump claimed he won the electoral vote in a “landslide,” but he ranks below most presidents in the electoral vote and popular vote margins.

NBC’s Peter Alexander gives Trump in-person fact check

President Donald Trump, after lambasting the media as “dishonest people,” received an in-person fact check from NBC’s Peter Alexander at a White House news conference Thursday on a false statement the president had made moments earlier, leaving Trump blaming staff for giving him the wrong information.

Trump had claimed in his opening remarks that he had won the biggest Electoral College victory since Ronald Reagan, which is demonstrably false. 

Alexander asked in the Press Conference: “You said today that you had the biggest electoral margin since Ronald Reagan,” Alexander said, sitting feet from the president. He then began to list recent electoral victories bigger than Trump’s, which include both of Barack Obama’s victories, both of Bill Clinton’s victories and George H.W. Bush’s 1988 victory, all since Reagan. “Well, I was talking about Republicans,” Trump said. George H.W. Bush, who was also a Republican, received 426 electoral votes, well above Trump’s 304. “Why should Americans trust you?” Alexander asked. Trump said he had just been given the information, seeming to imply he had been given incorrect information.

“It was a substantial victory, you do agree with that?” Trump asked.
“You’re the president,” Alexander responded.

Well, in my opinion, Alexander missed his golden opportunity to disagree with Trump; but likely chose to end his bold query on a professional note.  Kudos to Peter Alexander. 

Americans can't take more of these bizarre Trumponian disasters especially when the the lies are now owned by Donald Trump himself. He can't blame his misinformation on others when he's the creator of his own fake news!  In fact, the next time Peter Alexander asks a White House press conference question, he should demand for Donald Trump to produce a mental health assessment by a qualified psychiatrist, instead of a piece of paper signed by Gastroenterology physician Dr. Harold N. Bornstein of Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan.

Get out the plungers!

Donald Trump went swirling down the political drain at the bizarre February 16, 2017 White House News Conference.  He won't bounce back from this debacle because his cult followers can't save him from swirling disasters of his own making.
