He relies very heavily on the bible belt for support too
When the truth offends we lie and lie until we can longer remember it is even there. But it is still there. Every lie we tell incurs a debt to the truth. Sooner or later, that debt is repaid

I don't know what to think about this. Is this tongue-in-cheek? It really does read like a parody account. Is he actually going off the rails?

I'll give him this, he's got Poe's Law completely mastered.  Probably inadvertently, but still.

Someone needs to unplug his Twitter account that's for sure.

Be great if he could be unplugged, and not in an MTV  kind of way.

Just listened to Trump's remarks about wind turbines, broadcast in a review of the year on 5 Live. Amazing. 

The only online version I could find is on the Grauniad's channel unfortunately but I don't think they've doctored it.

Exactly what you'd expect from The Guardian. It is,after all, the most trusted UK media outlet both in print and digital formats.

If you're after a bit of doctoring you need to go elsewhere. Tory HQ for example.

Exactly what you'd expect from Trump too. How does he continue to get away with such inane ramblings.

Most trusted indeed - to get the zeitgeist bang wrong almost all of the time.

Sadly I agree. The Guardian is a rare exception when it comes to the Zeitgeist of fake news and reporting without fact checking.

I think he's a 'two-termer' . That would be bloody hilarious! 😁

He doesn't want to stop there! He keeps talking about 2024!

By Guardian readers? It might be the most trusted in some quarters, but it's a long, long way from being the most honest. So in the end the accolade you describe is only a measure of how easily people are taken in, or perhaps just like to read the news they want to read, then pretend it's true.

As for Trump, though - if that entire speech had been done verbatim by Alec Baldwin on Saturday Night Live it would have worked perfectly. The man is literally a parody of himself.

Its one thing to disagree with and positively dislike the opinion pieces and editorials contained within the Guardian but the news content itself is pretty damned good and in no way can be accused of dishonesty
