Didn't know the camera was running? Looks as though he also didn't know what a camera is, what was going on, where he is or who he is.
I've read this same article on reddit every month for the past 4 years. From before he was even President, the Guardian and others kept predicting Trump's downfall. Guess what? It didn't happen when he called Mexicans rapists, or attacked that federal judge, or "grab em by the pussy", or Russiagate, or when he stopped Muslims coming here, or when he attacked his own intelligence agencies. It doesn't happen. At some point the press needs to stop thinking they can predict his political demise because this is the horse that 40% of Americans want to ride and there's another 10-15% that will ride it when it's going smoothly. It's hard for the left to accept because we think that at some point reason will prevail, but if it didn't happen yet, it won't happen. We're facing something worse for us in the long run than Trump or Covid-19: we're facing the reality that this country is splitting in two along ideological lines and that might not resolve itself peacefully. I'm not seeing Civil War, but we could devolve into a state incapable of permanent governance and marred by random acts of sectarian violence. The media on the right is a propaganda outlet, but the media on the left doesn't live in reality. They don't want to ask the tough questions, accept their role in this catastrophe, or come to terms with how things really are in America. They'd rather sit in NY or London or LA and keep saying, "everything is fine. Trump is losing support!" over and over and over.
During an interview in the Oval Office, the Republican president said he did not expect the election to be a referendum on his handling of the coronavirus pandemic and added he was surprised the former vice president was doing well.
“I don’t believe the polls,” Trump said. “I believe the people of this country are smart. And I don’t think that they will put a man in who’s incompetent.”
Trump also retweeted Buck Sexton, a rightwing podcaster who asserted that ?the outgoing president used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration?. The president then added his own commentary: ?The biggest political crime in American history, by far!?
?He got caught, OBAMAGATE!?
A fact check by the Associated Press concluded: ?It is true that the investigation into ties between Russia and the Trump campaign, and into Russia in particular, began during the Obama administration. But it continued well into Trump?s own administration. The investigation into Flynn was taken over by a special counsel who was appointed by Rod Rosenstein, Trump?s own deputy attorney general.
?The internal FBI correspondence that has emerged in the last two weeks also doesn?t reveal ts saying that the goal of the investigation was to take down a president.?
Totally hatstand!So what exact crime is Trump accusing Obama of committing?
The president himself does not seem to know. ??Obamagate?,? he ruminated in the White House rose garden on Monday. ?It?s been going on for a long time. It?s been going on from before I even got elected. And it?s a disgrace that it happened.?6
Asked by a Washington Post reporter for the second time to name Obama?s exact offence, Trump replied cryptically: ?You know what the crime is. The crime is very obvious to everybody. All you have to do is read the newspapers, except yours.?
Clear as mud, then.
