Setting up Trump as a nutjob?
The media spreads their lies with Mr. fake Anonymous that it is a big joke.
Their credibility is gone. They are liars and everyone knows it.
The media idiots will never get over receiving just one scoop of ice cream.
Fake News - not buying the CNN feces. Go Trump; drain the DC and MSM swamp!!
Oh wait, the leakers only exist in the mind of the author. Now it makes sense.
FAKE NEWS. CNN is the leader of fake news.
Exactly what the MSM is trying to do.
Well, except that he made an appearance at the Military Mother's Day Event in the East Room which Melania was hosting today, oh and then there was the event he hosted for the Victory Christian Center School which included an Oval Office photo session.
The Democrat media has been calling Trump a nutcase for over a year now why would they stop now. The Commie media believes that if you repeat a lie enough times that people will believe it
Didn’t he do a couple of lengthy interviews as well.
Outa sight, my patootie...
I can tell it’s Clinton Network News just by the title.
Yeah, sure. Brought to us by the same guys that said comey asked for more funds for the Russia investigation, Sessions deputy was going to resign over his letter, and spicer hid in the bushes. All lies and they can’t stop. They can GFT
Way too many "sources" and not enough names, in fact, very few names. This is not journalism, this is high school gossip.
Stopthethreat was right in reply #1, "Not news. Just more gossip from anonymous sources. Very funny and entertaining." Describes this tripe perfectly.
Tomorrow he's doing a commencement speech at Liberty University at Lynchburg, VA. I wonder how he's going to do that and still stay out of sight.

I love President Trump, but the left needs to be put in a isolated rubber room to bounce off the wall and be in a strait jacket as it is both crazy and dangerous to all Americans.
