The Donald has no sense of self-awareness…
Suggesting he would like to see tougher laws on speech, Mr Trump said that if libel laws “were strong… you wouldn’t have things like that happen where you can say whatever comes into your head” – referring to Michael Wolff’s book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.
Since when has The Donald ever been able to restrain himself from tweeting the first stupid thing that came into his vapid orange head? He’s been libelling US media since he infested the White House.
Early on Saturday, Mr Trump wrote a string of messages on Twitter where he rejected such claims, saying he was a “very stable genius” whose two greatest assets are his “mental stability and being, like, really smart”.
There’s been no evidence of either. He’s a loon.
I’ve no insight into the veracity of this book. But it has baited the president into revealing what a total moron he is. If the book is in fact a farago of salacious lies and insinuations, why not just shrug it off? Why not just laugh at it? But no, the reaction has been to demand restrictions on free speech. The Donald might as well just admit the book is true, if he feels that threatened by it.
But no. Trump thinks it ought to be illegal to criticise any American president. So long as it isn’t Barack Obama. That one is free game.
