Morning Briefing: Donald Trump Believes He Is a 'Great Looking' Man
Good morning to everyone except Tucker Carlson and this white lady, who could feed a family of six with the word salad that comes tumbling out of her mouth here:
Can someone quickly look up the membership qualifications of the KKK and see if brown Muslim women are allowed. It’s huge, if true. Also, it would make the KKK less racist than Tucker Carlson.
— Speaking of Fox News, Juan Williams is a hack, but he somehow manages to back Jesse Watters into making an argument equivalent to, “Just because it has ham and cheese and bread doesn’t mean it’s a ham sandwich. A sandwich isn’t defined by the meat inside of it.”

A big subject today at the White House Social Media Summit will be the tremendous dishonesty, bias, discrimination and suppression practiced by certain companies. We will not let them get away with it much longer. The Fake News Media will also be there, but for a limited period..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 11, 2019
….The Fake News is not as important, or as powerful, as Social Media. They have lost tremendous credibility since that day in November, 2016, that I came down the escalator with the person who was to become your future First Lady. When I ultimately leave office in six……— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 11, 2019
….years, or maybe 10 or 14 (just kidding), they will quickly go out of business for lack of credibility, or approval, from the public. That’s why they will all be Endorsing me at some point, one way or the other. Could you imagine having Sleepy Joe Biden, or @AlfredENeuman99,..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 11, 2019
…or a very nervous and skinny version of Pocahontas (1000/24th), as your President, rather than what you have now, so great looking and smart, a true Stable Genius! Sorry to say that even Social Media would be driven out of business along with, and finally, the Fake News Media!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 11, 2019
A few things here: 1) Of course, Donald Trump believes that Facebook is a more accurate source of news than The Washington Post. 2) Trump actually came down the elevator in 2015, not 2016. 3) He’s just kidding … again … about never leaving office. 4) Did Trump just body shame Elizabeth Warren? and 5) Did Trump just call himself “smart” and “great looking”? Has Donald Trump ever looked in a mirror? This is how delusional the man is.
— Speaking of Trump, he’s expected to execute an executive order today to insert the citizenship question into the census after his legal team bailed on him. The executive order is not expected to survive in the courts.
JUST IN: President Trump expected to take executive action to put citizenship question on 2020 census, but this move is expected to face immediate legal challenges and Administration officials have expressed skepticism about viability of this path. @CBSNews— Paula Reid (@PaulaReidCBS) July 11, 2019
— Finally, this has nothing to do with anything, but I have been laughing about it all morning.
