Bluffer In Chief?…

bluff:

noun – an attempt to deceive someone into believing that one can or will do something.
verb – try to deceive someone as to one’s abilities or intentions.

Defining Trump’s character as well as any article we’ve read.

Donald Trump said he had a secret.

He dangled it on Twitter. He parried reporters’ questions about it. He milked the moment, drawing out the drama for weeks.

That big tease played out in 2011, when Trump promised to reveal what his private investigators had found in Hawaii about President Barack Obama’s birth certificate. (Trump never did release anything.)

Now, Trump has stretched out a new high-stakes guessing game, this time in the White House, by hinting that he might have recordings of his conversations with fired FBI Director James Comey.

Trump is expected to answer the tapes question this week.

If they do exist, they could become a central piece of evidence in the Russia investigation that has transfixed Washington and cast a shadow over the future of Trump’s presidency. If they don’t, questions will be raised about why the president would stake his reputation and political capital on promoting something that just isn’t real.

Several outside advisers who speak to Trump regularly said the president has not mentioned the existence of tapes during their conversations. White House aides have been known to grimace when the subject comes up, and more than a half-dozen staffers said they were unaware of any recording devices. All demanded anonymity to speak about private discussions with the president.

Whether the tapes exist or not, this is far from the first time that Trump, the former star of reality TV and tabloids, has manufactured a melodrama that begins with bluster but often ends with a whimper.

“I think he was in his way instinctively trying to rattle Comey,” says former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a longtime Trump confidant. “He’s not a professional politician. He doesn’t come back and think about Nixon and Watergate. His instinct is: ‘I’ll outbluff you.'”

He out bluffed a weak democractic presidential candidate to become President of the Unites States. Now he can and likely will bluff a nation.

  1. No president can compare to our champion liar when
    it comes to consistency in the falsehood department. We ponder him
    standing next to the proverbial hewn cherry tree, ax in hand. “This fallen tree was cut down by Hillary. See?-I found her ax. The 45 witnesses were Obama paid informants and the press reports as usual are completely false.
    Make America great again!”

    1. I’ve concluded that republicans are brilliant. They’ve manage to hoodwink a huge number of voting folks and adding their gerrymandering savvy they now are able to control the game. Simply put we’re fu**ed.

  2. A number of wingnuts have claimed, like Trump has, that the Russia story is fake. But how will they explain Trump’s own CIA director, Pompeo, who said this:

    “Russia “meddled” in last year’s presidential election as part of a decades-long effort to “undermine American democracy,” CIA Director Mike Pompeo said.

    I he saying fake stuff too? Since his inauguration, Trump has not come out against the Russian hacking. I should think that would be one of the first things a POTUS would want to investigate: The integrity of our electoral process. So far, Trump has said the Russian story is fake. I wonder why…

  3. Senate Judiciary Chairman Grassely called out Chuck Schumer for lying to everyone. Grassely stated Schumer knew all along President Trump was not under investigation, but continued to push the false narrative.

    From The Daily Caller: Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley called out Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer Thursday for lying when the New York Democrat claimed that President Donald Trump was under investigation and Schumer knew otherwise.

    Grassley stated that in March, then-FBI Director James Comey briefed ranking member Dianne Feinstein and him on the Russia probe.
    “This included telling us who was, and who was not, under investigation,” Grassley stated on the floor of the Senate.

    “After that meeting, I publicly called for Mr. Comey to tell the public what he had told us about whether President Trump was under investigation. The public had a right to know. Mr. Comey told me and other Congressional leaders that President Trump was not under investigation. He even told the President himself – repeatedly. But, Mr. Comey didn’t listen to my request for transparency. He didn’t listen to the President’s request. Only months later has the truth finally come out.”

    “So the media was wrong. So the Democrats were wrong. So the wild speculation and conspiracy theories ended up harming our country. They played right into Russia’s hands. And how did we all learn about this truth? In President Trump’s letter removing Mr. Comey from office.”

    1. Grassley is as slimly and untrustworthy as tRump. What he utters is as uselessly fake as tRump’s as well.

      The Daily Caller is only one step above Breitfart, so, most of what is published is is BS.

      By all means continue believing and spreading the fake facts of the tRump administration and the GOP (Grand Old Poop). We shall LOAO when the BLOTUS and his slimy party is history.

      Thanks for stopping by. We have noticed you are new and already populating the rightwing looney sites with your garbage. Please continue to do so. LMAO!!!
