GATUMADRE TRAP REMIX/PEXELS
President Donald trump has engaged in a petty game of "I know you are but what am I?"
Still smarting from being called a Moron, Donald Trump now insists NBC is ‘Run by Morons.' The President has a gift of taking the insults thrown his way and then firing back at the hurler.
According to several sources, the president has been expressing his frustration to friends and senior aides over NBC's report, which claimed that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called him a "f***ing moron."
An allegation Mr. Tillerson has yet to deny. He in fact has spent a lot of his camera time trying to avoid the issue. That speaks volumes, no?
The president has a long-standing feud with NBC, his former home who launched his reality career, but his eagerness to reimagine Mr. Tillerson’s reported speech to use against the Peacock Network is not just driven by disgust with their reporting but their daily transparent coverage of him. Trump also has a habit of hurling the same insults leveled at him back at those he considers enemies.
The president really needs to be careful when he speaks. This is of course a lesson we have all hoped he would catch onto sooner rather than later but somebody may need to remind him.
Nobody likes to be called a moron but the leader of the free World my need to evaluate his reactions and move forward. How do two wrongs make a right?
Twitter wasted no time to chime in.
I wonder what made Trump more angry...that Tillerson called him a fucking moron, or that NBC reported it?— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) October 6, 2017
With the amount of times past presidents were dragged through the mud one would think the current position holder may try to adjust accordingly.
