In Angry Tweetstorm, Trump Accuses Fabricated "Sources", Democrats Of "Making Up Russia Story"

Tyler Durden's picture

Judging by his ongoing Tweetstorm this morning, in which he first praised the market's performance (it remains to be seen what if anything he will say once stocks tumble under his watch), then dedicated the next four tweets to leakers, fabricated sources, "fake news" and Russia, president Trump does not appears to be in a good mood.

In his two most recent tweets sent between 9 and 10 am on Thursday, Trump reverted to his favorite topic: the interplay between the "fake news" media, the "discredited democrats", and the ongoing Russian scandal which the resignation of Mike Flynn only managed to blow up to unseen proportions.

"The Democrats had to come up with a story as to why they lost the election, and so badly (306), so they made up a story - RUSSIA. Fake news!"

In a previous tweet, trump accused the press - really the WaPo, NYT and CNN -  for making up their sources.

FAKE NEWS media, which makes up stories and "sources," is far more effective than the discredited Democrats - but they are fading fast!

Trump's latest outrage followed his accusation that the intelligence community is leaking information to the media since Flynn's resignation. Flynn's resignation came after reports, citing multiple unidentified sources, that Flynn had misled top White House officials about the contents of phone calls he had with Russia's ambassador to the U.S. before Trump was sworn in.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said that Flynn resigned because of an "eroding level of trust" between him and the president.

Trump often hits the media, accusing reporters of biased and dishonest coverage against him. In recent weeks he has consistently referred to certain outlets as "fake news" and the NYT as "failing." Earlier Thursday, Trump called on The New York Times and other publications to apologize.

"Leaking, and even illegal classified leaking, has been a big problem in Washington for years," the president tweeted. "Failing @nytimes (and others) must apologize" and then warned "low-life" leakers that "they will be caught" now that the "spotlight has finally been put" on them.

Now stop tweeting and release those 650 000 emails.

Dear Donald,
Attack them or die. Get Jeff on the DNC operatives and especially the Clintons.

Slap Spicer down and kick him out if he is playing Priebus's game instead of yours.

Do not call on CNN, WaPo during press conferences and stop doing LameStream media interviews that are bent on torpedoing your presidency.

Start kicking ass or yours will get kicked.

You were elected because you didn't play their fake-o games.

Start kicking ass please.

Then GUT the place, and get your OWN DAMNED PHONE SYSTEM IN, and then a good DOUCHING OF THE LONG TIME WHITE HOUSE STAFF is in order. 

................anyone ELSE notice that ONLY when Trump moved into the WH this shit started?

Funny how the best people all hate Trump and give him more credibility every day. I love how the left has now become, Pro-War, Pro-CIA (deep State), anti-capitalist, Pro-Communist, pro-violence to stifle free speech, pro establishment. The true colors are shining through. Its great, going full retard is a sign that they are dying. Now that the heat has been turned up to 11 we know Trump is actually really working hard to drain the swamp. If you are catching flack its because your over the target.

Speaking of "making up the Russia story" . . .

I seem to recall that Trump was going to reestablish detente with Russia? That under Trump we would work with Russia to defeat ISIS?  That NATO was obsolete? 

It took only what, less than a month after entering office, before Trump has his UN rep and WH spokesman to tell Russia that Crimea must be "returned"?  WTF???

Today Mad Dog Mathis tell us that there will be "no cooperation" with Russia . . .

Hey Trump, you're no better than bomb bomb Obama.  You're either a coward or a liar.  

And you are going to get us all killed.

I don't think it's political possible right now.  Also, I think Trump's business experience has him start negotiations from a position of strength.  If you'll settle for 500K, start the negotiations at 1m.

What people don't understand is, that the Russian PsyOp / False Narrative Script by the Deep State & Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Psychopath Hillary Clinton Globalist was the game plan all long.

Win, stolen or lost. They were going & are going "all in" with the PsyOp, Scripted False Narrative of Russia hacking the Elections / Russia / Putin / Trump Propaganda gone full retard via the Deep States Opeatives in the Presstitute Media.

The future meeting between the Two Super Powers will be Epic. The Diplomacy which will Prevail out of those meetings will be a fresh breath of air to the World.

And, final Death Blows to the Pure Evil Criminal Deep State Elite Compartmentalized Hierarchy.

That's because the Left has no abiding principles, other than self-enrichment.  They do whatever is expedient to benefit themselves and their 'cause du jour.'  They would probably support Hitler himself, or Mao, or Che Guevara, or Eisenhower, or Churchill, or Castro, or Reagan even... if it meant they could spin it to get their globalist, socialist, amoral agenda pushed forward.  They are a rudderless ship that sails whichever way the socialist wind blows.  And the scary thing is that they seem OK with that.

I do not believe that people find it normal that their president is sending angry tweets 24/7, that he became a bigger reality star than Kardashians, that he and most of his team are racist (including the vice president), that 6 of his team (so far) are from Goldman Sachs, that there is 0 level of organization in the entire presidential and goverment structure, that there has not been a single policy sent to congress, that he is dividing the nation and so on...

I have seen no evidence that Trump or any of his team are racist.  If there was any actual evidence, you can bet it would be shown daily on every TV channel and in every paper, rather than them just repeating "he's racist" again and again, hoping eventually it will stick.  And we didn't hire him to be "normal".  We hired him to clean house.  He probably won't succeed because probably no single person could succeed, but holy God it would be horrible right now if Hillary had won.  As it is, all the right people are vomiting pea soup and their heads are spinning around.

If he really wanted to earn my support, he would do everything he could to reduce the power of the presidency and of SCOTUS, and make it much less important who was actually running the government.  You know, like the founders repeatedly outlined in the federalist and anti-federalist papers and other founding documents.  Somehow those have become passe and even offensive to some.

I'm not making any accusations here, but, is that you Dory?

"Trump was accused of making racial slurs against black people in a book written by John R. O’Donnell, former president of Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino, called “Trumped!” O’Donnell wrote that Trump once said, in reference to a black accountant at Trump Plaza, “laziness is a trait in blacks.” He also told O’Donnell: “Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day.”

“Nobody has had worse things written about them than me,” Trump says. “And here I am. The stuff O’Donnell wrote about me is probably true. "

Consider the source's spin(HuffPo), of course, but as far as I can tell the quotes are real; it seems that, in those quotes alone, there's a lot more red meat there than simply "repeating "he's racist" again and again, hoping eventually it will stick", no?

"Now if that's a fact, tell me: am I lying?"- Dennis Hopper

That's "The Left" only in contemporary American terms.  There's nothing actually "Left" about them.  They're Corporatists, which is not "Left."  None of them are talking about turning the means of production over to the workers.  They're talking about subordinating government to their favored corporate interests and continuing and extending the Wars of Empire.  They are absolutely not pro-Communist.  No Communist would have ever, ever, put the federal government on the hook to bail out not only Wall Street but also the healthcare finance system.  Not in a million years.  Communists would have let Wall Street go bankrupt and nationalized those assets, just as they would do with the healthcare finance debacle.  Never would a Communist have made the purchase of private insurance mandatory, and subsidized by the government.  Never.

They're also very skillfully using the levers of the Imperial Machine against the Trump team, and the Trump team seems taken off-guard.  The bullshit stories about Russia are a "tell."  The Imperial Corporate Democrats are totally enthralled by Zbignew Brzezinski and particularly his "Grand Chessboard" strategy.  That's why they have such a hard-on for Russia.  And they've found some traction alleging there are hidden connections between people on the Trump team and Russia.  If the Trump team hadn't underestimated their opposition, they'd have done a much more credible job fending off these allegations.  Instead, they've already tossed Flynn overboard and they seem to have nothing more than Tweets regarding the rest.

It looks a lot as if Trump has paid way too much attention and given far too much credence to internet bloviators, and wildly underestimated the intricacies of actually running the government.  I can sit in the stands and bitch about how bad my hometown Major League Baseball team is, but I have to bear in mind that even the worst player on the team was the best player on his high school, college and minor-league team, and I got cut in 10th grade.  When I have a legal or medical problem, I hire a lawyer or a doctor.  I don't hire the guy at the bar who goes on about conspiracies in the legal and pharmaceutical industries, even if I agree with him.

Trump has hired the likes of Steve Bannon for political insight, and surrounds himself with Goldmanites when it comes to the economy.  Note where he's put the professionals, and whose interests those professionals represent.  And note that it's on the political side where he's taking all the hits.

He's not angry, he's pissed.  Rightly so.  I would LOVE to have seen any of the last 3 presidents treated like this (Bush kind of did, but not to this level)...then I wouldn't really complain.  But this is just stupid.

Things start to make sense, now.

Obama made it everyone's surprise....even his own. They sat his ass down, and told him...this is how it goes...or we tell the truth about the phony fucking birth certificate..stolen Social Security number, college records that show you enrolled as a foreign exchange student.

Your choice, Chalky. Play ball..ride the wave...reap the benefits.


You plug that scenario into the equation...everything makes perfect sense. It's like the elusive " theory of Everything ".

swmnguy's picture

I don't know if Obama is such a good analogy.  In May of 2008, before the Democratic nomination was decided, I read that Obama had gotten more in campaign donations from Wall Street than either McCain or Clinton.  McCain was known to be friendly to Finance, and Clinton, the sitting Senator from New York and spouse of the (to that time) most owned-by-Finance President of modern times; yet Obama got more?

That told me a couple things.  One, that the gathering storm of Finance was more real and more imminent than was being acknowledged at the time, and Two, that Obama had already promised Wall Street a bailout.

Then in late September, both McCain and Obama promised, if elected, to name as Secretary of the Treasury one Timothy F. Geithner.

Not long after, Obama named Rahm Emanuel to be his Chief of Staff.

Obama was a ballplayer well before anyone had to "have the talk" with him.  Going back to his days in the Illinois state legislature, he was never anything but a cautious centrist politician, in bed with Finance.  Way back in those early days, he advocated increasing the corporate role in Medicare and Social Security, and he delivered in spades (pun intended) with the legally enforced mandatory federal bailout of the collapsed healthcare finance system known as ObamaCare.

Only Obama's fiercest enemies or most deluded admirers ever thought he was anything but what he was.  The actual Left in America knew better but were silenced by the corporate-owned media, who rightly divined their paymasters were about to be enriched beyond what seemed possible in late 2008.  That anyone of any political persuasion thinks Obama was anything but a corporatist, never mind hysterical labels like "Socialist," "Communist," or even "Progressive" shows the power of the corporate media and their ability to frame topics.

Trump's problem is that he's surrounded himself with like-minded dilettantes, and they all think things they don't know about are easy.  It's like NFL football fans thinking they can out-coach professional football coaches.  It's all fine and fun and games on a barstool, but it's a lot more difficult and complicated in real life.  Nobody has had to "have the talk" with Trump.  His appointing amateurs to professional positions has had far more impact so far.

Dear Donald,

The extent to which you are otherwise so action-biased, but are now not acting and are only complaining, is the extent to which you dare not act. You dare not act, because the IC have the dirt on you and Flambe Flynn. You can't have it both ways.

If Flynn broke no law and acted honorably, then why did he lie to Dense Pence? And why did he lose your trust?  You can't have it both ways.

You inaction and self-contradictions highlight that you're in trouble, or are psychiatrically unfit for Office.  Fix things or get swept away.  The Purple Revolution continues.

Hugs, Hill'.

Fake news has been losing money for years and is only kept afloat by financialist funding.  Bezos and the Washington Post is a good example of that.

It's hard to punish these outlets for their lies when they don't need money from us to exist.

Syrin's picture

It takes time to figure out who the advertisers are, but when one of them openly declares themselves an enemy, we boycott, and do so effectively.   Ask Target, Kelloggs, the NFL and ESPN.  The list of enemy combatants will grow, as will the boycotts, and these traitors will adapt or die, and I prefer the latter.

Trump is right, but it seems congress has been bribed to stand still and twiddle their thumbs , the deep state is attacking him with frivolous information and the left have devolved into radical nut jobs.

Every Hotel Room in China for Foreigners is most likely wired with cameras,

Bush 2 Justice Dept seized the kiddie sex videos in FL, possibly elsewhere, Clinton is reported to have been on Pedo Island and present at underage Orgies according to law suits by eye witnesses.

Multiple articles in all Media cover this, the Daily Beast did some good work to document Epstein


Every Intelligence Agency in the world with a camera and money to hire a high end hooker as bait has Clinton on multiple films, reportedly Hilary too.

A sex tape involving Hillary would be a weapon of mass destruction!  Oh, the huge manatee!

Probably both, maybe they are offered money first (e.g. McCain took two cheques from DNC after badmouthing Trump), and if they won't be bribed, they can blackmail. (e.g. Pizzagate, Epstein's island).

The Deep State has positioned itself and played its hand, so as to prevent any peace or cooperation with Russia.

Their encircling and constricting shall continue, as will anyone who gets in the way.  Including Trump.

Our foreign wars and troops in the ME shall continue, to ensure the safety of our ME friends and allies.  The Saudi are our allies, to keep the Petrodollar.  The Israelis are our friends, to properly run Wall St, the Treasury and the Fed. 

It's they way things are. The Purple Revolution continues.  Thanks to Jared, Trump is a slow and non-acting Yakunovich all over again, and we shall have our Maidan Square Revolt in DC.
