CNN’s Tapper: ‘Trump Is Promoting His Alternate Reality’
TAPPER: “Welcome to The Lead, I'm Jake Tapper. The politics lead. President Trump all over the place today, promoting his alternate reality, where the Special Counsel investigation started by his hand-picked Deputy Attorney General was an attempted coup against him. This as he attacked his own former White House counsel as a liar, slammed Democrats as maniacs, promised to fill sanctuary cities with undocumented immigrants, despite legal guidance from his own Department of Homeland Security, that he cannot do that. And claimed that his assessment that there were 'very fine people on both sides' of that Charlottesville, Virginia, march was the perfect response. The President today also claimed that gas prices were going down when they’re actually going up. And referred to his 72-year-old self as young and vibrant. Any one of these comments during any other presidency would prompt alarm, condemnation, concern."
