It’s official: the man who “has the best words” has become a fed-up mother scolding the country as if we were his nagging child.
Of course, what he forgets is that as president of the United States, he works for us, the American people — not the other way around.
The statement came during an interview with Time magazine. Trump was asked whether he would believe the intelligence community if it told him his tweet about being wiretapped by Obama was false. Instead of answering the question, he dodged it by lamenting over the “mess” he inherited.
Here’s the statement in full:
I inherited a mess, I inherited a mess in so many ways.
I inherited a mess in the Middle East, and a mess with North Korea, I inherited a mess with jobs, despite the statistics, you know, my statistics are even better, but they are not the real statistics because you have millions of people that can’t get a job, OK. And I inherited a mess on trade.
I mean, we have many. You can go up and down the ladder. But that’s the story.
Hey, look, in the meantime, I guess I can’t be doing so badly, because I’m president, and you’re not. You know.
Next up: “I know you are, but what am I?”
