Almost Everything Trump Has Ever Said, Disproved By His Own Tweets

In the midst of a post-midnight Twitter rant slut-shaming Alicia Machado early Friday morning, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump threw in another thought:

In this tweet at 2:20 am, Trump was probably referring to an article in the New York Times.

This article detailed Trump's aides privately saying he acted like a child when they tried to prepare him for Monday night's debate. The article says,

In interviews, seven campaign aides and advisers, most of whom sought anonymity to speak candidly, expressed frustration and discouragement over their candidate's performance Monday night.

As his character dictates, rather than ignore the issue and move on – or even work on preparing for the next debate – Trump dug in.

He followed up his late-night tweet with another later Friday morning.

So, based on Trump's tweets from Friday morning, we cannot believe anything if a source is not named. And if a source is not named, that source does not exist.

Using Trump's own logic, let's look through some things Trump has said, which we now know we cannot believe:

1. President Barack Obama's birth certificate is fake.

Trump tweeted a series of statements about Obama in 2012, all from an “extremely credible” or “confidential” source:

Twitter

Given that this source was not named, we must assume the source does not exist. So, none of this is true.


2. Iranians killed a scientist because of Hillary Clinton?

In August, Trump tweeted,

Twitter

“Many people” are not named, so we must assume they do not exist. So, none of this is true.


3. Vince Foster was murdered.

During an interview in May, Trump said,

I will say there are people who continue to bring it up because they think it was absolutely a murder. I don't do that because I don't think it's fair.

Because “people” are not named, we must assume they do not exist. So, this is not true.


4. China gets away with a lot because of free trade.

During an interview with the New York Times in March, Trump said,

I'm all over the world with deals and people and they can't believe what their countries get away with. I can tell you people from China cannot believe what their country's, what their country's getting away with.

Given that “people from China” are not named, we have to assume they do not exist. So, none of this is true.


5. Trump won Monday night's debate.

Trump tweeted,

Twitter

We have no way of knowing who “they” are, so we must assume “they” do not exist. Therefore, Trump did not win the debate nor the NBC Presidential Forum.


6. People want Trump to host “Meet the Press.”

In 2015, Trump tweeted,

trump tweets about meet the press

Twitter

“So many people” are not named. So by Trump's logic, they don't exist. Nobody wants to see Trump hosting “Meet the Press.”


7. Trump's hands are normal.

In an interview with the Washington Post in the spring, Trump said,

You know, my hands are normal. Slightly large, actually. In fact, I buy a slightly smaller than large glove, okay?

No, but I did this because everybody was saying to me, ‘Oh, your hands are very nice. They are normal.'

“Everybody” is not named, so “everybody” does not exist. As a result, Trump's hands are not very nice or normal.


8. Donald Trump is a genius.

Also during that Times interview, Trump said,

I notice now this morning, people are saying Donald Trump is a genius.

Trump did not name “people.” So, we have to assume they do not exist. As a result, Donald Trump is not a genius.


9. Trump is great at Twitter.

Trump tweeted in 2012,

trump tweets about being the best tweeter

Twitter

We don't know who “many” are, so there's no way to prove they exist and that anybody is thinking this. This is especially the case given how many times Trump's tweets have come back to bite him in the ass.
