Trump called the NYT to tell them he is FINE! Not worried at all! Never better!
And TOTALLY not under investigation!
“I’m not under investigation, as you know,” Mr. Trump said in a brief telephone call to The Times late Wednesday afternoon. Pointing to the indictment of his former campaign chief, Paul Manafort, the president said, “And even if you look at that, there’s not even a mention of Trump in there.”
“It has nothing to do with us,” Mr. Trump said.
Nothing at all to do with him! Why would you think that?
He also pushed back against a report published Monday night by The Washington Post, which the president said described him as “angry at everybody.”
“I’m actually not angry at anybody,” Mr. Trump told The Times.
Not angry! Happy! All is good! And everyone loves him!
“I just got fantastic poll numbers,” the president said, listing what he saw as his biggest accomplishments, including a focus on deregulation and low unemployment rates. He did not cite any specific polls or reveal any numbers from Ms. McDaniel. A NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released on Tuesday put Mr. Trump’s approval rating at 38 percent — the lowest for the survey since February, when he was a month into his presidency
And he is working so hard!
“I’m in the office early and leave late; it’s very smooth,” Mr. Trump said. “Honestly,” the president added, “I’m really enjoying it.”
Totally happy y’all! Just calling into the NYT to remind them of how totally great everything is! Rainbows and unicorns! Nothing to see here!
