Donald Trump is very very weirded out by the fact that there is a conversation about his midnight run to Walter Reed being due to his having suffered a stroke. The Trump campaign has set out to crucify analyst Joe Lockhart, and all he did was ask a question on Twitter.

It’s an understatement to say that Trump world is defensive. Here’s the campaign statement demanding that Lockhart be fired. Wow. Now the dictator is silencing dissidents for even speaking of subjects which are taboo.

The story is that Michael Schmidt of the New York Times is releasing a book, which claims that Mike Pence was put on standby when Trump went to Walter Reed last fall. There is NO comment in reviews of Schmidt’s books so far that says anything about Trump having a stroke. The comment about the mini-strokes comes from writer Don Winslow.

Trump can’t ask for Winslow to be fired, because he doesn’t work for anybody. He writes books and makes films.

Now, the question being asked, is whether Trump isn’t in fact outing himself by going bonkers over this issue. To recapitulate: 1. Michael Schmidt didn’t say Trump had a stroke; 2. Joe Lockhart merely asked; 3. Don Winslow said that he had heard about the stroke. But Winslow is not working for a media outlet or publishing the information as news. So, who is “they?”

Winslow made the comment August 1, and it wasn’t until August 31 that Trump apparently got wind of it — perhaps in conjunction with the review of Schmidt’s book, because that’s when it got retweeted a lot. Bottom line, no news outlet, fake or otherwise, is claiming that Trump had a stroke. A mystery thriller writer with a large following is saying he was told that. So, it’s hearsay on Twitter, and that’s nothing new. But something put a burr under Trump’s saddle and now the Trump campaign wants Joe Lockhart to be the sacrificial lamb, for asking a question. Another day, another lesson straight out of Fascism 101. The takeaway from this is that a raw nerve was hit and Trump world is out for blood and to make an example out of somebody.

  1. Just claim you were being “sarcastic” to rile up the opposition, or you COULD claim that you said tRump IS a stroke, instead of HAD a stroke…..

  2. he really is delusional if he thinks he is our favorite president. he is lower than bottom of the list. A lot of people out and out hate him and his crooked administration . It appears even melania ia sliding down the list.
    Good thing is his ranting and raving will help Schmidt sell lots and lots of copies of book. I have ordered my copy.
