Has Trump Mentioned Lately That Dead John McCain Makes Him So Angry Like GRRR ARGH?
Can we just say that when Fox idiot Maria Bartiromo sounds like the sane person in a situation, that is a worrisome situation? That is what happened when Donald Trump -- who's just had a fantastic Infrastructure Week, assuming it is Infrastructure Week, and we always do -- sat down for what was supposed to be an easy breezy "You're the best!"/"No YOU are, Mister President!" interview with his beloved Fox pals.
Instead Maria Bartiromo had to ask the question on everybody's mind, which is WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU OH MY GOD, or, more clearly, is there a reason you have spent this entire week of your presidency picking a fight with a dead guy, who somehow seems to be winning that fight, because you are literally so stupid and incompetent you LOSE FIGHTS TO DEAD GUYS?
She said it nicer than that, though.

BARTIROMO: You spent a good portion of your time in Ohio the other day trashing John McCain. Senator John McCain is dead.
WOW, THAT IS A GOOD FACTUAL STATEMENT FROM A FOX NEWS PERSON!
TRUMP: So, it's not a good portion of my time, it's a very small portion. But if you realize about three days ago it came out that his main person gave to the FBI the Fake News Dossier, it was a fake, it was a fraud, it was paid for by Hillary Clinton and the Democrats, they gave it to John McCain, who gave it to the FBI for very evil purposes. That's not good. And the other thing, he voted against repeal and replace. Now he's been campaigning for years for repeal and replace, I'm not a fan! After all of this time, he's -- think of this! -- repeal and replace, we would've had great healthcare ...
BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH, it's the exact same speech he's been giving all week, it's all full-of-shit syphilis-brained lies, there's no need to debunk it again, because we already did that.
BARTIROMO: But he's dead. He can't punch back.
TRUMP: Uh! NO?
That's right, the president of the United States's response to "but he's dead" was "Uh! NO?"
Here are the new lies:
TRUMP: I don't talk about it. People ask me the question! I didn't bring this up, you just brought it up, you asked the question.
BARTIROMO: Well, you talked about it this week.
TRUMP: You asked me the question. When I went out yesterday to the scrum, they asked me the question. When they asked me the question, I answered the question. But you people bring it up, I don't bring it up. I'm not a fan. He was horrible, what he did with repeal and replace, it was, what he did to the Republican Party, and the nation, and to sick people that could have had great healthcare? Was not good. So I'm not a fan of John McCain and THAT'S FINE!
And the Fox Business anchor who had just played the clip responded, "Uh huh ..."
Because the man is batshit.
So Trump only brings up John McCain when others bring it up, except for sometimes he brings up John McCain in front of audiences in Ohio, and sometimes he whines about John McCain all day long on Twitter, because he believes any conspiracy theory that gets vomited into the back of his throat by Fox News, because he is the stupidest person who ever graced God's green earth, BUT ALL THE OTHER TIMES, it's because you people bring it up. Truly, why won't journalists stop asking Trump about John McCain!
Now here's what's interesting. Aaron Blake from the Washington Post tweeted out more transcript, with a more extended fight, where Trump claimed that Bartiromo wasn't supposed to bring it up, suggesting that the White House had stipulated that Dear Leader was not meant to be asked about that particular grievance he's nursing. But Bartiromo did bring it up, therefore Fox News and Fox Business are now Fake News, until this weekend at Mar-a-Lago, when Trump spends 57 hours of each day watching Fox News, at which point Fox News will be his favorite again.
So is this Bartiromo going rogue and saying fuck it and asking the McCain question? Blake followed up with a second tweet, reporting that Bartiromo said this morning that there were no conditions on the interview, which means Fox News is saying Trump is a bullshit liar. First they're saying "John McCain is dead" to his face and then they're saying he's lying! What has gotten into our Fox News?
Nothing. Absolutely nothing at all.
Or for fuck's sake.
