Donny Little Hands loves manipulating the media.
When too may news sources start talking about his campaign ties with the Russians - he pivots to making outrageous claims like Obama bugged Trump Tower during the elections.
Of course that's not a shred of evidence to prove his claim and yesterday the top Republican and Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said that there is no evidence of any wiretap at Trump Tower in Manhattan during the presidential campaign or transition.
When everyone was talking about Trump's failure to get Republicans united enough to repeal Obamacare Chump knew he had to create another diversion.
He, or someone close to him, mailed the first two pages of his 2005 tax returns to David Cay Johnson, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who wrote a book about Trump.
Johnson was suspicious that there was just a two-page summary without the rest of the information - like who Thump does business with, and who he's indebted to.
Instead, all the summary told us was that he made $150 million and paid $38 million in taxes. That's about 25%. Nothing wrong there. As a matter of fact, it looks good.
Too good. So who would of sent it?
Stump kept the story alive in the public eye with the following tweet exchange yesterday morning:
Does anybody really believe that a reporter, who nobody ever heard of, "went to his mailbox" and found my tax returns? @NBCNews FAKE NEWS!
David Kay Johnson
Gee, Donald, your White House confirmed my story. POTUS fake Tweet. Sad! twitter.com/realdonaldtrum …
Trump fans call &; harass my wife &; 1 of my children after I break story White House confirmed. Sad! Let's have open debate, not threats.
Mission accomplished. The mainstream media and social media will toss that bright ball around for awhile.
So far Rump has managed to throw so many lies and conspiracy theories around it's been difficult pinning anything on him.
But...and this is the saving grace, Lump has too many bad things to hide forever.
Once exposed, his business connections with the Russians and Chinese aren't going to go well with Congress (despite the fact both houses are controlled by Republicans).
In the upcoming public address on Dump's wire tapping claim
the House Intelligence Committee will hear FBI Director Comey's testimony. Comey is convinced there were no wire taps and has said so publicly.
And so on...
Time for me to walk on down the road...
