Unhinged Trump on Mt. Rushmore “If I answer yes, I will end up with such bad publicity”

Daniel Dale starts his job for CNN on fire, but not in the Black Hills, noting that the Hill can’t really call Individual-1 on his interview lies because they don’t want to jeopardize access.

President Donald Trump was asked on Tuesday whether his face should appear on Mount Rushmore along with other major American presidents.

“If I answer that question yes, I will end up with such bad publicity,” Trump told The Hill, before pivoting to an incoherent rant about fireworks.

Trump keeps repeating the same lies, including the alleged rape at Bergdorf Goodman.

Interesting sequencing and phrasing of interview questions here.

THE HILL: I do want to ask you real quickly about Jean Carroll because she was on television all morning repeating her allegations. Is it your position that she’s lying about what happened?

President Donald Trump went on a long rant Saturday as he once again denied E. Jean Carroll’s sexual assault allegations, taking the opportunity to not only disparage his accuser but also New York magazine and women in general who make allegations of assault against men. Carroll has a new book out in which she details Trump’s alleged assault against her in the dressing room of a Bergdorf Goodman in the mid-1990s. New York magazine published an excerpt of the book on Friday.
“He seizes both my arms and pushes me up against the wall a second time, and, as I become aware of how large he is, he holds me against the wall with his shoulder and jams his hand under my coat dress and pulls down my tights,” she writes. “I am astonished by what I’m about to write: I keep laughing. The next moment, still wearing correct business attire, shirt, tie, suit jacket, overcoat, he opens the overcoat, unzips his pants, and, forcing his fingers around my private area, thrusts his penis halfway — or completely, I’m not certain — inside me. It turns into a colossal struggle.” No more than three minutes later she managed to flee. slate.com/…

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Totally lying. I don’t know anything about her. I see that I had a picture with her coat on where I was leaving and you know, with the back of my; I know nothing about this woman. I know nothing about her. She is… it’s just a terrible thing that people can make statements like that. Think of it. Any department store that’s crowded. Okay? Bergdorf Goodman’s a crowded store. And I’ve never been up that I remember ever on that floor. They sell women’s dresses on that floor. Okay? But Bergdorf Goodman is..and this is, like, twenty-five years ago, but this store is packed. It’s on Fifth Avenue and 57th Street. And she made this charge up. And by the way, she’s made it up about , or she’s said it about other people too. I’m not the only one. She said it about other people. I’ll say it with great respect, number one, she’s not my type. Number two, it never happened. It never happened. Okay? I hope you can be strong. But I think it’s a crazy thing when, when people are allowed to make false accusations like that. I really do. And, and for twenty-five years she never said anything. She never said for twenty-five years. And then she said, where are the sales girls that walked, worked…where are the people on the floor? All the people there and they had nobody behind the counter, which is supposed to be right there? There was nobody working behind, the store’s packed. It’s a disgrace these false, a, a false accusation like that is a disgrace.

Speaking of Iran, Trump told the Hill that John Kerry “talks to them all the time.” A source close to Kerry told CNN that Kerry hasn’t spoken to the Iranians in over a year, since Trump announced his withdrawal from the nuclear deal in May 2018.

Fact check: Is John Kerry in violation of the Logan Act?

In a Sir Story, Trump said he is personally responsible for the return of fireworks to Mount Rushmore.

Trump claimed that the New York Times’s David Sanger did not ask the White House for comment for his story on US cyber efforts related to Russia’s power grid. The story says they contacted National Security Advisor John Bolton and the National Security Council.

He rambles on about Mount Rushmore , and admits he knows nothing about it . I’m not sure he’s ever visited the monument… But to think anyone would want to put his image up as a great president ,would be ludicrous. Beyond
fantasy. Only a fool would entertain, to answer
that question with anything but a “NO “.

This moron of a president should be put into a mental institution and loose all his assets. He does not deserve anything else that cruel and inhumane SOB.
