So Hard To Pick Wildest Donald Trump Related Weirdness

Another day, another moment of Trump and/or his minions being weird.

This morning's was one of the oddest and most idiotic. 

In case you haven't already heard, our Tweeter In Chief tweeted that "Morning Joe" host Mika Brzezinski was "bleeding from a face lift" during a New Years visit to Mar-a-Lago.  

Trump always gets crude with women he doesn't like, which is most of them.  And Brzezinski is clearly no fan of Trump, so there's that.

We've long known that Trump's M.O. is to push back harder against anybody who pushes against him, but we also know he has such a childish way of doing it. Which is what we got today.

"Look, I don't think that the president's ever been someone who gets attacked and doesn't push back...There have been an outrageous number of personal attacks, not just to him but to frankly everyone around him.... This is a president who fights fire with fire and certainly will not be allowed to be bullied by liberal media or liberal elites in Hollywood or anywhere else," said White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders. 

Anyway, Trump always dismisses facts reported in the media as "fake news" which leads me to my favorite Trump-related stupidity of the week.

Apparently, some of Trump's golf resorts have had fake news displayed on the walls. When this was reported this week, Trump complained about fake news about the fake news at his golf resorts.

Confused yet? Trump has that effect on people.

The golf resort fake news involved framed images of the cover of Time magazine dated March 1, 2009, with a big photo of Trump and headlines like "The Apprentice' is  television smash!' and another headline in all caps, "Trump is hitting on all fronts...even TV!"

This Time magazine cover is a fake, and a poorly done one at that. First of all, Time never has headlines with all caps and exclamation points. Time is too sober for that.

In any event, there was never a March 1, 2009 edition of Time magazine. There was an edition of Time magazine on March 2, 2009, but that one never mentions Trump and had actress Kate Winslet on the cover.

The Boston Globe said the Trump organization had no comment on how it came to have fake news on the walls of Trump's golf resorts even when he's always whining about "fake news."

Trump did complain that the Washington Post was giving us fake news because it had a report of the fake Time magazine covers at the golf courses.

As for Time magazine, the publication has asked the Trump resorts to take down the fake magazine covers. No word yet on whether they're complying.
