Donald Trump told Newsmax’s Greg Kelly recently that he doesn’t miss having a social media platform, saying, “I’m doing, I think, and you just alluded to it; I do press releases. And frankly, they’re more elegant than tweeting, as the expression goes, they’re really much more elegant, and the word is getting out.” Well, we’ve all seen Trump’s juvenile press releases that read exactly like his crazy-time tweets.
Trump’s statement asks, “Where’s Durham?”
Former Attorney General Bill Barr picked John Durham to oversee the investigation into the origins of the Russia probe, and that hasn’t panned out the way the former president expected. Still, Durham is continuing that investigation in his capacity as special counsel. Trump really wants backup to his claims of a “Russian hoax,” and that hasn’t worked out very well. Also, Barr did not support the former president’s claims of widespread voter fraud.
So, Trump released this bizarre statement:

Twitter users pounced:
“Here, print my tweet.”
‘Sir, you don’t print tw-‘
“Just print the god damn thing, okay?! And when you release it, tell me how many hearts it gets.”
‘How many… hearts… sir?’
“Is there a way we can count how many copies are made?”

“Will there ever be a Durham report?” the lonely old man typed on his typewriter at Mar-a-Lago with just his index fingers, a pile of Filet-O-Fish wrappers and a Large Diet Coke by his side

Trump seems to still not realize he got played by whoever sold him on John Durham for this mission. Durham is an apolitical career DOJer with a severe ethical compass. pic.twitter.com/vXbhNgDLYf

Durham ain’t got shit, that’s why you haven’t heard from him!

Trump’s “where is Durham..” statement shows how disordered his mind is. It’s a window to his fear of consequences. He’s too stupid to realize Durham is not going to help him. Durham has seen the evidence confirming the urgency to investigate team Trump for conspiring w/ Russia.

Wow – for a guy that was POTUS just two months ago, Trump with these “Statement” releases confirms he’s completely in the dark as to… well… anything/everything. Seems like a self-own. Does the GOP really want a “leader of the party” that publicly declares he knows nothing?

Why is everything so much weirder than it normally is. The republicans senators are playing in the jungle and the former guy is tweeting random things by press release and it’s illegal to give a bottled water to someone waiting to vote and I don’t have enough characters to go on.

Mental health check?

Why is Trump calling for a wellness check on Durham? I’m somehow picturing Trump running up and down the corridors of Mar-a-Lago while muttering something about winning the election, ‘Crooked’ Hillary, Durham, and of course, ‘Sleepy’ Joe Biden. I’m not sure why Trump supporters don’t see how insane he is. Perhaps they are trauma bonded to the narcissistic former president. Who knows.
