RICE ORDERED SPY DOCS ON TRUMP? https://t.co/bL2nZRFxk9— DRUDGE REPORT (@DRUDGE_REPORT) April 4, 2017
It's good to know the President's not so busy he can't read Drudge....
So, the man who can pick up the phone and talk directly to the head of the FBI 24/7 instead contacts the FBI via Twitter?
.@FoxNews from multiple sources: "There was electronic surveillance of Trump, and people close to Trump. This is unprecedented." @FBI— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 3, 2017
The "@FBI" is the tell. Trump is not trying to distract us from something with Machiavellian guile. He really does think reality occurs in press reports, and he really does want to the FBI to switch to FoxNews to get the "real" information.
"Fake news" can only be fake if it is news. If there is no "fake news" to complain about, what would Trump do with his time? And yes, it trickles down to Trump, Jr.:
Should have gone to CNN that way she would get the Qs in advance... who am I kidding they were never going to ask a real question? #fakenews https://t.co/m6ATjfJJOO— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) April 4, 2017
Note the silence about answers to questions offered before the Senate Intelligence Committee; or the answers to questions offered by Director Comey to the House committee. No, the only news is FoxNews (or Drudge, or Breitbart), and the only thing to comment on is "fake news." An idea that isn't new, and isn't fake.
But we'll come back to that.....
