White House flunkies like press secretary Sarah “Huckabee” Sanders deny it, of course. She’s paid to lie for Trump.
Mr Trump also defended himself on Sunday, tweeting: “I’ve had to put up with the Fake News from the first day I announced that I would be running for President. Now I have to put up with a Fake Book, written by a totally discredited author. Ronald Reagan had the same problem and handled it well. So will I!”
Reagan was eventually diagnosed with Alzheimer’s before he popped his clogs a few years after his last term. Trump is so unaware of reality, that point seems to have escaped his masterly intellect, such as it is.
