Superstitious Trump Calls In To Fox & Friends Because He Won “Many Primaries” After Calling Them First

Via Politico:

As Trump closed out his campaign, he remained true to form, often rambling off topic during the 15-minute phone interview — demonstrating the kind of shaky message discipline that’s endeared him to many supporters but horrified political operatives.

“Well, it’s very exciting,” Trump said about Election Day. “You know, I’ve spoken to you folks for a lot during our very successful primaries. Oftentimes, every single one I was speaking to you in the morning so I’m a little bit superstitious. So when you said please call, I said I’ll call. But I won many primaries speaking to you first thing in the morning so I’m gonna keep that string going.”

The reality TV star also maintained that New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady and his head coach, Bill Belichick, endorsed his campaign this week. Trump said he got a call from Brady and a letter from Belichick, both of whom he said told him he could announce their support.

“They’re friends of mine,” Trump said. “And they’re great people and great champions.” The Patriots organization declined to comment on the veracity of his claims, but Brady’s wife allegedly denied that her husband is backing the brash billionaire with an emphatic “NO!” in an Instagram comment.

    The look on their faces kinda says it all.

  • Michael Smith

    Primaries are not the general election. The demographics aren’t that similar. It’s probably why you’ll lose tonight.

    • Crazy Russian

      Demographics, shmemographics… he’s got a great feeling about this, tremendous feeling! It’s gonna be great, and he’ll win so bigly, and we’re gonna make America great again, because all the smart people are saying it!

    I hate when I’m in the position to be “first” (or at least, to jump into a thread early enough that people might actually see my comment) and I don’t have anything to say.

    • Marides48

      Well said & I’m so proud of you.

    • another_steve

      Kudos to you, popebuck, for what may very well turn out to be the most insipid, vapid comment in JMG history.

      The only way to be more insipid and vapid on this blog is to post porn pictures of Czech twinks, which I have done many times.

      • Bad Tom

        It doesn’t matter if the comment is vapid and insipid, as long as it’s funny.

      • popebuck1

        Thanks, I’m just doing my part to make Internet comment threads a more insipid and vapid place!

    • JayRock

      But you said something anyway. Good for you!!!!

      • another_steve

        It depends upon what the meaning of the word ‘said’ is.

  • Sam_Handwich

    The mentions of Brady and Belichick yesterday were completely bizarre. He read what was supposedly a letter of endorsement from Belichick, but it sounded suspiciously like the “medical report” his crazy doctor wrote.

    • thom

      my guess the Brady phone call happened. he absentee voted yesterday but won’t say for whom.
      his wife’s denial was to a question that asked if they were BOTH voting for trump. probably a split house

  • Marides48

    He’s still lying on election day.

    • DaddyRay

      He will never stop lying – it is who he is at the core

        And he bitched about people being bused in from other states to vote…where do they get this shit?

        NO ONE stopped him from saying that nonsense.

      To which the world responds: GOOD!

    • Michael Abbett

      He’s deranged. He has gotten more free publicity just handed to him by the networks than any other candidate in history. Millions of dollars. I suppose all that actual time, energy and money was supposed to be handed to him as well.

    • ChrisInKansas

      Awww.

      Of course, not *his* money.

      • Chucktech

        Certainly not…

    • thom

      we all will, trump, we all will

    • CharlestonDave

      But others have donated most of that money, and he’s spent quite a lot of it on himself (Trump Tower office rent, Trump logistics, Trump wine, Trump catering…). It’s his donors that should feel their money was wasted, not Trump.

  • DaddyRay

    How long do you think it will take for the Trumpsters to turn on Trump for ruining their chances at winning the White House

    • CanuckDon

      First we have to live through their denial stage.

      • DaddyRay

        Ugh as we know some of them perpetually live in that stage

      • JayRock

        Please no. Please let this thing be shut down hard by 9pm EST. I can’t go through 2000 again. NOOOOOOOooooooooo

      • Bad Tom

        So, two years?

      • CharlestonDave

        I’m not sure THEY will live through their denial stage.

        • William

          Make it so.

    • popebuck1

      Not a chance. At this point they have no strategy other than to double down on EVERYTHING. The polls were rigged! Paul Ryan stabbed Trump in the back! Dead people were voting ten times each! EVERY poll was skewed, even the Breitbart ones!

      • marshlc

        I was in some comment section yesterday and there were quite a few (apparently serious) accusations that Breitbart was in the tank for Clinton.

      Never. He will rant and rave about it being rigged and screaming about who he’ll sue and it will go on for months.

      I’m surprised the TX Republicans haven’t tried to split into five states, as is their unique right in Texas, thinking that they could go from 2 conservative Senators to 8 or 10 conservative Senators (I’m guessing the State of Austin might be a beacon of blue, but who knows what diabolical gerrymandering might dilute its power). So that would be potentially a +8 swing in conservative Senators, and secure the Supreme Court from Democratic nominations.

        I would be happy with building a wall around east Texas. Gohmert can be king of the zoo.

        Texas functionally doesn’t have that right anymore according to this fascinating snopes (“partly true”) article. I hadn’t realized the US actually wasn’t eager to have Texas, it causing several problems.

    Why does Faux News continue to exist?

    • Treant

      Faux News will exist until the short-skirted knees open and she flashes the camera.

    • Chucktech

      Because deplorables continue to watch. They watch Fox News tell them how shitty their lives are and that it’s all Obama’s fault. Then they sit there and think how shitty their lives are and decide to blame Obama.

  • greenmanTN

    If nature truly abhors a vacuum, Fox & Friends is in real trouble.

    There would be near universal upset in Massachusetts if Tom Brady announced he supported the Orange Menace.

    Trump needs to step on a crack, open an umbrella indoors, carry a shovel through the house, hang a horseshoe so the open end points down, and get a black cat to walk across his path.

    • Dinz6315

      He needs to walk under a ladder with an open umbrella in a house where a black cat lives in a crack in the floor so that both a horseshoe and shovel fall on his head – on the thirteenth floor.

        Nice!

    Just what we fucking need, a superstitious prick as president. maybe he can ask nancy’s psychic about whether to nuke Iceland.
