Trump just pulled a bizarre



The White House’s daily press briefing went off the rails almost immediately as Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders unveiled a bizarre recording from President Trump on twin television screens, immediately evoking comparisons to the Wizard of Oz or George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984.

Even though he was a few hundred feet away, the President couldn’t be bothered to address the press briefing himself and instead allowed Teleprompter Trump to recite a trite list of enormously exaggerated boasts about his “accomplishments.”

It’s only the latest weirdness in a profoundly bizarre week that began with the President comparing the size of his “nuclear bomb” button to that Kim Jong-un’s and proceeded into a wild day of rumor and scandal from the Fire and Fury book revelations.

Add your name to millions demanding Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH TRUMP & PENCE!

And it’s only Thursday.

Social media, for its part, immediately recognized the potential for hilarity and quickly got to work.
