Donald Trump had an absolutely bananas press conference on Wednesday afternoon. Oh, and the President of Finland was there too, watching in abject horror, as the President* had a real time meltdown on live tv.
There were so many completely batsh*t crazy moments, but one of the worst had to be at the end, when Trump snarled and raised his voice at Reuters reporter, Jeff Mason. What got Trumpy so upset? Mason asked him what he wanted Zelensky/Ukraine to do about Hunter Biden. Simple question, right? Well, Trumpy didn’t like it…not one bit.
Here are some other moments from the press conference:
Ann Arbor (Informed Comment) – Trump proudly says he is a “nationalist.”
He is, of course, saying this to shore up support among white nationalists. The Nazi sites on the web were all having wet dreams in the aftermath.
From the 1990s, polling has found that about 10% of Americans support far right militias. These are the white nationalists. Trump came to power by mobilizing that 10% and combining it with Republicans and independents.
It is not an accident that Benito Mussolini called his party “Nationalist Fascism.” The two go together. Trump performs the “fascist” part of this two-part term every time he does a rally, so he doesn’t have to say “I am a Nationalist Fascist,” i.e. a Mussolini-ist. But that is what he is.
