Vox’s Aaron Rupar is the guy you follow to get what are supposed to be the most embarrassing clips from President Trump’s press conferences, but press conferences are also where Trump gets to pull reporters’ chains, and he does it well. And he’s a funny guy, which those inflicted with TDS just don’t get. So when the media decided to ask the president about QAnon Wednesday, he said this:
REPORTER: QAnon believes you are secretly saving the world from this cult of pedophiles and cannibals. Are you behind that?
TRUMP: Is that supposed to be a bad thing? We are actually. We are saving the world. pic.twitter.com/rPYFU1B8WB

“Is that supposed to be a bad thing?” Classic Trump.
What’s funny is, if Trump were saving the world from a secret cult of pedophiles and cannibals, the @washingtonpost would run a story headlined “Some See Pedophlia and Cannibalism as a Ticket to A Better Future.” https://t.co/liFBUy3xJn

And somehow work the word austere into the headline.

So upon hearing this I laughed so hard poor hubby had to pause TV. I’m sorry but we are living the theater of the absurd and Trump has gotten better and better at sarcastically yanking the press’ chains. Oh the vapors/headlines soon to come
