It’s all about The Donald, yes? Somehow Mr. Trump found a way to mutate this weekend’s terror attack in New York City into another notch on his portly political belt. Step aside Nostradamus, Punxsutawney Phil and all six-o’clock weathermen: #Donald Trump is now taking credit for prophesying ISIS-sponsored attacks on US soil.
Trump is the 'bomb' because he called it folks
Calling into Fox and Friends on Sept. 19, Trump just couldn’t resist admiring himself in the media mirror – touting that he was the first to call it a “bomb” before investigators determined what caused the explosion, and then launching into some pseudo-agitation over the fact his rival #Hillary Clinton also called it a bomb but only Trump was criticized for it.
At the same time, Donald rolled out his own red carpet by clueing us all in that he “knew this was going to happen,” Trump bragged, adding: “I should be a newscaster because I called it before the news.” For the record, Trump was on his jet when the bomb went off in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood Saturday night, and his uttering the word “bomb” was nothing more than his opinionated guesswork happening to fall in line with the facts.
“What I said was exactly correct and everybody says while he was right, he called it too soon. Okay? Give me a break,” Trump said of himself.
Here’s the full interview in case you missed it:
Everyone is out to get Trump?
Trump also lamented on the “rigged system” of media reporting – he claims news outlets took out Hillary’s use of the word “bomb” and only nailed him for using it. So let’s be clear here: Trump was upset that CNN and other outlets criticized him for saying a bomb went off, but after it was confirmed a bomb went off, he inverted his thoughts and feelings on the matter and plugged his soothsaying abilities.
Trump also used the bombings to boost his campaign platform calling for Muslims to be booted from the country. He sarcastically said, “We don’t wanna do any profiling,” stating that “if somebody looks like he’s got a massive bomb on his back, we won’t go up to that person and say, ‘I’m sorry,’ because if he looks like he comes from that part of the world, we’re not allowed to profile. Give me a break.”
Hey, at least he didn't accidentally express thankfulness that no one was injured, like the out-to-lunch Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson. #Terrorism
