How an unflattering photo drove Trump to DENOUNCE



On Donald Trump’s “List Of Things I Should Worry About” he should be five digits deep before he ever arrives at “the picture of me Fox and Friends uses.”

But an inability to prioritize or see the big picture is what got Trump into five-digit lists in the first place.

Nevertheless, Trump — facing nearly 100 felony counts — is now openly complaining that Fox and Friends intentionally uses an ugly picture of him.

This morning, Trump posted this primal scream:

“Why doesn’t Fox and Friends show all of the Polls where I am beating Biden, by a lot. They just won’t do it! Also, they purposely show the absolutely worst pictures of me, especially the big ‘orange’ one with my chin pulled way back. They think they are getting away with something, they’re not. Just like 2016 all over again…And then they want me to debate!”

Mr. former, twice-impeached, President, “Sir,” (I’m crying and big and burly), perhaps it is because there are no polls showing you over President Biden by a lot?

And here is the offending photo:

I’ve seen worse. I have even seen worse pictures of Trump, not many, but I’m sure I have. Indeed, given the news of the day, Fox and Friends could use this picture, and Trump would look much worse.

Trump’s issue with Fox and Friends isn’t really about the picture… well, yes, it is sort of about the picture because Trump is so vain that he wears more makeup than Kimberly Guilfoyle.

No, his issue is with the fact that Rupert Murdoch finally realized that the world would be a much better place (to make money in) if Donald Trump is never president again.

Thus, as the owner and producer of Fox News, the word went forth that they were not going to be in the tank for Trump in the Republican primary.

Trump: “THAT’S NOT ALLOWED! Look at the Republican rules I had engraved on tablets, the NUMBER ONE RULE, “I am the Lord your God, thou shall have NO gods, candidates OR presidents before me!”

Sorry, I’m not sure how Trump got into the column.

Trump needs himself ensconced into the presidency as fast as possible with as little resistance as possible because that clears up the five-digit problems down to a manageable five total (Yes, his picture would be a top-five problem, he is that vain).

But Fox News is getting in the way!

Fox News has refused to endorse him (we are months away from even the first primary), and the station still regularly covers the other candidates, even with Trump’s lead.

One could say that Fox and Friends is doing all it can to push another Republican ahead of Trump. I don’t know that for a fact, but it’s not beyond the realm of possibility.

After all, Brian Kilmeade learned how to play catch just to have a genuine “softball interview” with Ron DeSantis.

Story continues below tweet:

Yes, fun fact, DeSantis did play baseball at Yale, a point emphasized in the “softball interview” (Yes, I realize they used a baseball, which also used to be called “hardball” in some places, but definitely not in that interview).

So that is Trump’s problem. DeSantis gets to look kind of young and vigorous (He is only vigorously angry these days), while also getting softball interviews about things DeSantis likes, such as not being indicted in four locales as but one handy example.

(DeSantis is young. Give him time.)

Meanwhile, Trump gets to look like this.

For now.

But if he keeps complaining, don’t be surprised if they start using something worse…

They could use a four-picture rotation.

Story continues below tweet:

Or, they can start using random pictures of donkeys, which are perfectly respectable animals, an animal with dignity, one that works hard, is loyal, calm, contemplative, a vegetarian, and is the symbol used by Democrats. All things Trump hates!

It is also a jackass.
