Trump Dictates Reality
It Is What He Tells Us It is
“This is not a well man, Don. This is a guy who honestly believes that he can
change the fabric of reality and make the law go away by tweeting at it”.

"Just remember, what you are seeing and what you are reading is not what's happening. Just stick with us, don't believe the crap you see from these people, the fake news."
- President Donald J. Trump addressing the Veterans of Foreign Wars Convention in Kansas City, Mo. July 23, 2018
Have you noticed? Trump seems to believe that he can simply dictate the news like an emperor surrounded by scribes taking dictation. He is constantly telling reporters "this is the story". "Take this down...".
Don Lemon asked, “OK, Rick, so there were a lot of tweets but they ended with this one: ‘Totally clears the president. Thank you.’ I mean, is he talking about Obama? Is he talking about Bush? I don’t know. But him?”
“I’m not sure Individual #1 understands exactly how the law works,” Wilson said, referring to the president by the term used in the filings. “Because just wish-casting yourself and saying ‘Oh, I’m cleared now, it’s all good’ is, you know, Donald Trump 'fabulism' writ large. This is a guy who clearly spent the day in a growing state of anxiety and rage. I mean this morning was some classic rage tweeting. And you’ve got to imagine they were trying to beat the door of the John down trying to get the guy out so he’d stop tweeting this morning.”
Lemon then showed 14 angry tweets from the president all sent on Friday.
“This is not a well man, Don. This is a guy who honestly believes that he can change the fabric of reality and make the law go away by tweeting at it,” Wilson said. “There’s a lot of things today that are going to accrue in the assessment of Donald Trump including the fact for the first time the Department of Justice has said that Donald Trump asked his minion, Mike Cohen, to commit felonies. This is an ugly, bad, no-good day for Donald J. Trump.”
Wilson later teed off on Trump over his mistreatment of former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, of whom Wilson said Trump is jealous. Trump had tweeted that Tillseron was "dumb as a rock" and "lazy as hell".
“Look, Rex Tillerson negotiated deals as the CEO of Exxon that where the rounding error was greater than every penny Donald Trump has ever made in his entire life,” he said. “This is a guy who is absolutely a globally recognized business leader as somebody who led a gigantic multinational corporation successfully. This is not some two-bit Manhattan grifter who puts his name on building and goes bankrupt every five years. Trump is always jealous of business success and makes him mad.”
