Boy oh boy, Donald Trump is definitely not handling the publication of that defamatory dossier well.
On Tuesday, a dossier written by an unverified former British intelligence agent was published by BuzzFeed and includes evidence that Trump has deep ties to Russia. The documents contain compromising financial and personal information against the President-elect, including a particularly eyebrow-raising claim that Trump had paid Russian prostitutes to perform "golden showers," a sexual act concerning pee.
In true Donald Trump fashion, the President-elect skipped all convention and went straight to Twitter to address the claims. Not so fun when leaks are used against you, now is it, Donny?
FAKE NEWS - A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 11, 2017
Russia just said the unverified report paid for by political opponents is "A COMPLETE AND TOTAL FABRICATION, UTTER NONSENSE." Very unfair!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 11, 2017
Russia has never tried to use leverage over me. I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH RUSSIA - NO DEALS, NO LOANS, NO NOTHING!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 11, 2017
I win an election easily, a great "movement" is verified, and crooked opponents try to belittle our victory with FAKE NEWS. A sorry state!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 11, 2017
Yikes, someone tell Donald Trump that writing in all caps just makes him look more desperate and more guilty.
Daily Twitter meltdowns are what we have come to expect from the future POTUS, but this tweet comparing the United States to Nazi Germany was especially extreme.
Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to "leak" into the public. One last shot at me.Are we living in Nazi Germany?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 11, 2017
Despite having a strong following of American Nazis, lamenting the free press, and yielding constant comparisons to Adolf Hitler, Trump still probably shouldn't compare the country he is about to run to the one that exterminated six million jews. Still, the irony was not lost on civilians.
well we did just elect an unstable, populist leader who leveraged bigotry to move into power... https://t.co/n9rNduKMVr— Kevin Hines (@kevhines) January 11, 2017
You have literal Nazi supporters threatening to use guns to cleanse Montana of all Jewish residents. https://t.co/FkiydtB5nQ— Zeddy (@ZeddRebel) January 11, 2017
However, we must give credit where credit is due. Those quotation marks around the work "leak" in Trump's are very well placed, given the information in the dossier. Still, someone should take away Trump's phone and remind him it is better to be pissed off than pissed on.
On second thought, scrap that last part.
