Attempting to change the narrative and put his own spin on the allegations of Russian hacking of the 2016 race for the White House, Donald Trump said on New Year’s Eve that he is in possession of information no one else has access to and adding he knows “things other people don’t know.”
Like what, Donnie? Vladimir Putin’s private cell phone number?
As part of very brief remarks Trump made to the media at his Mar-A-Lago estate in Florida, Trump once again suggested U.S. intelligence agencies which have confirmed Russian interference in the election, commenting:
“I just want them to be sure because it’s a pretty serious charge. If you look at the weapons of mass destruction, that was a disaster, and they were wrong.
“So I want them to be sure. I think it’s unfair if they don’t know.”
And as if he hadn’t already proven his own ignorance on any number of subjects, Trump then asserted he knows “a lot” about computer hacking:
“So it could be somebody else. And I also know things that other people don’t know, and so they cannot be sure of the situation.”
What might this important information only a former reality TV show host is privy to consist of? Trump refused to elaborate, but did reveal this:
“You’ll find out on Tuesday or Wednesday.”
Based on past experience with the con man turned president, it seems likely that when Tuesday and then Wednesday roll around, there will be nothing from the Trump camp. Keep in mind he was going to release documents proving his wife Melania came to the United States legally and never did. He also promised he would be detailing how he planned to make sure there were no conflicts of interest between his role and president and his business holdings around the world. That announcement has been delayed until after the inauguration, meaning it will probably never materialize, either.
Donald Trump is a pathological liar. This has been proven time and time again. And he isn’t about to suddenly change.
