Trump Finds An Anonymous Source He Likes -- Himself!
Donald Trump does not like anonymous sources. Not one bit Because reporters are very dishonest people, who definitely make up all these anonymous sources just to make him look bad. In fact, they should be barred from using anonymous sources entirely, because we sure wouldn't want something like Watergate happening again! Anonymous sources are bad! Unless, of course he is the anonymous source.
News broke Tuesday night that Trump himself spoke as an anonymous "Senior Administration Official" to several news organizations ahead of his big speech, and was quoted on how "the president" really wants to bring people together with his new immigration policy in which he maybe won't send all of the Dreamers back to countries they haven't lived in since they were infants.
Reporters were allowed to put some of Trump's comments as the "Anonymous Senior Administration Official" back on the record after 6pm. What the point of that even is, I am honestly not sure.
Speaking off the record is not uncommon for presidents, particularly ahead of a major speech. However -- given Trump's tantrums about anonymous sources lo these past few weeks, one would think he'd shy away from being one. Not so, apparently.
Donald Trump definitely did not make those phone calls pretending to be a PR spokesman for Donald Trump that Donald Trump admitted Donald Trump made.
"Report: Senior Administration Official Says Trump Beloved By All Who Serve Him, Especially The Ladies, Who Also Want To Do Sex To Him."
"Senior Administration Official Says Ivanka Is Looking Dazzling This Evening, Maybe You Should Buy One Of Her Schmattas Off Of Ebay?"
"Senior Administration Official Says Trump's Face Not Actually That Orange When You See It Up Close. Media Uses Filters!"
"Senior Administration Official: Donald And Melania Definitely Having Sexual Intercourse On The Regular, And She Is Very Into It, And Him. Sexually."
"Senior Administration Official: The Taco Bowls At Trump Tower Are The Best Taco Bowls. Very Authentic!"
"Senior Administration Official Pines For More Gold Leaf In The Oval Office. Make It More Classy!"
The possibilities are truly endless.
