Trump Lashes Out At “Liar” James Clapper

Here’s what Hair Furor is pissed about:

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper reiterated his concern about President Donald Trump’s ability to effectively lead the country on Wednesday night. “What caused concern is this … Jekyll-Hyde business where he’ll make a scripted teleprompter speech, which is good, and then turn around and negate it by sort of, unbridled, unleashed, unchaperoned Trump. And that to me — that pattern — is very disturbing,” Clapper told Jim Sciutto in an interview on CNN’s “Erin Burnett OutFront.”

Clapper emphasized he was speaking as a private citizen and not as a member of the intelligence community. Clapper — a CNN national security analyst — had questioned Trump’s “fitness” to hold the office of the President less than 24 hours earlier. That came during a “CNN Tonight” appearance early Wednesday, following Trump’s divisive campaign rally in Phoenix, Arizona, on Tuesday night.

    …his “beautiful letter to me”

    I cringed so hard I think I pulled a few muscles…

    • Scout

      That phrase is what displays the dementia .. . . it doesn’t make any sense.

      • Natty Enquirer

        It implies that Clapper wrote something to Trump that he hasn’t shared with the public. I have no idea what Trump is getting at.

        • vorpal 😼

          I have no idea what Trump is getting at.

          Neither does he.

          • liondon#iamnotatraitor

            He’s being a bully..wants to see if Clapper will back down.

        • 2guysnamedjoe

          Oh, I most definitely believe there’s a beautiful letter from Clapper. Dump keeps it in a top secret cardboard box underneath the Oval Office desk, along with that secret tape off the Comey conversation.

          • GayOldLady

            No, he keeps them in that Secret Compartment in the Resolute Desk. Didn’t you watch National Treasure?

        • Thorn Spike

          Like those taped conversations with Comey.

          • Uncle Mark

            ^^^ This…a hundred times. The Nazi shitgibbon is a congenital liar. He’s hoping the media will spend several hours today trying to decipher what that “beautiful” letter could be.

          • thatotherjean

            Or they could ask Mr. Clapper, who will say he wrote nothing to Trump, which Trump’s base will take for proof positive that he did.

        • -M-

          A form letter, no doubt.

          • thatotherjean

            Turned out that was pretty much what it was–identical letters of “Welcome to the Presidency” that Clapper wrote to both candidates just before the election, and sent to the one who won.

          • -M-

            Figures. Just what you’d expect many people in such positions to do and pathetic Donnie acts like it was a gushing fan letter.

  • SoCalGal20

    Speaking in the third person again, I see.

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    Criticism for Clapper dispensed far quicker than criticism for Nazis.

    • DonnaLee

      And you know someone else had to write it, then he went and fucked it all up by ad-libbing.

  • Scout

    Not a different “tone”, a different MESSAGE. Why is Trump complementing himself like he thinks he just got an “A” in Drama Club for his “unique” ability to monologue in different moods?

    • Natty Enquirer

      What ability? All he does is badly read what’s on the TelePrompter. Or he goes off script and he’s his usual nasty self.

    • SoCalGal20

      He’s so desperate for praise he has to praise himself. Sad!

  • AtticusP
    • Karl Dubhe

      So, will the crash of 2017 rival the Crash of 1929?

      • liondon#iamnotatraitor

        1929..SAD!…2017…THE Best!!

    • thatotherjean

      Trump has policies? They change every time he opens his mouth!

      • prixator

        And have any actually been implemented?

      • RoFaWh

        He does not have policies. His mind is like a demagnetized compass needle that turns this way, that way and never points in any particular direction.

  • Joe in PA

    and then turn around and negate it by sort of, unbridled, unleashed, unchaperoned Trump….

    Um, trump, I think you just made his point.

    Dumbass.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Soon or later you are going to piss off the wrong people, and that will be the end of this fucking nightmare.

    • Joe in PA

      I wish he’d hurry up already!

    • whollyfool

      Well it’s not for lack of trying lol

  • SoCalGal20

    Here’s hoping for more TrumpRussia news today. πŸ™‚

    • Tomcat

      Yes after Rachel’s show last night I expected more than NOTHING today.

      • SoCalGal20

        It’s not even 10am on the east coast.

        • Tomcat

          There was proof Russia and trump were working together for 5 years in that report and not worth of first thing in morning reporting. While his tweets was worthy.

      • Natty Enquirer

        Just watch a few more commercials. I’m sure there will be news eventually. And now, a word from our sponsor …

  • Tomcat

    Reminds me of the pot and the kettle.

  • vorpal 😼

    …unlike Trump, who tells six lies every time his mouth moves.

    • Tomcat

      He would be upset you only said six.

      • vorpal 😼

        But they’re BIGLY lies. The best lies!

        • RoFaWh

          Fake lies.

  • Todd20036

    Funny how Trump criticizes his critics almost immediately, but he criticizes Nazis… never.
    Is America great yet? I’m not feeling it. In fact, I’m rather ashamed to be an American these days.

    • wmforr

      Oh, but he does criticize Nazis, in Jekyll mode: “Miss Wilson, my mommy said I have to apologize for saying Sarah Ann wasn’t worth shit and putting her pigtails in the inkwell. Here goes: Sarah Ann is worth shit. Happy now, Mommy?”

      • RoFaWh

        He reminds me (just a little!) of some of the more recalcitrant toddlers who resist Super Nanny’s introduction of the “naughty step” (or time-out spot) into a household with children wholly out of control.

        “Will you aplogize?”

        “No!!”

        “Back to time-out.”

        “Ready to apologize?”

        “I’m sorry” (shouted at the wall)

        “Sorry, that’s not a good enough apology. Back to time-out.”

        “Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!”

        Unlike President Liargroper, however, eventually the kids figure things out, apologize, and get the necessary hug and kiss when they do.

  • Tawreos

    The man who lies to everyone is complaining about someone lying to congress? Also, the president is not supposed to wildly change tones every few hours, that makes people nervous jack ass.

  • Tomcat

    Finally MSNBC is going to talk about new info on the Russia Dossier after commercial.

    • Tomcat

      She did not do it justice, I give up on the media.

      • Tomcat

        She did not even mention the testimony revealed that Russia and trump have been working TOGETHER for 5 years to get him elected.

        • Tomcat

          Oh well back to Justice Channel. Screw this shit.

  • worstcultever

    Hey asshole – guess who doesn’t give a fuck about your β€œtone” or any of your other pathetic preening bullshit? I’ll tell you who – Bob Mueller. Have a nice day!

    • Gerry Fisher

      Zzzzzzzzzing. For the win!

  • Tomcat

    Someone needs to make a video of trump speaking and only farts come out of his mouth.

  • MassageBear

    Does anyone here happen to know:

    If a president is sent to prison, does Secret Service protection cease at that point for him/her/their family?

    If a president pardons him/herself, does Secret Service protection cease at that point for him/her/their family?

    I mean, it’s called planning, people!

    • Tomcat

      Who knows what the new world order is.
      Hell we are going to go bankrupt just protecting his family while he is president.

    • David Walker

      Didn’t the SS say they’re running out of money thanks to 45’s “large family” and incessant travels? The question may be moot by time he’s thrown into the clink.

      • kareemachan

        I believe they’ve already run out of money. Make drumpster pay for bitsy’s bro’s thugs himself.

    • Xuuths

      Presidents can’t pardon themselves, so that question is moot.

      • MassageBear

        Wouldn’t put him past it to try.

    • MassageBear

      Does anyone know how many family members are getting SS protection?

  • Ninja0980

    Man, he sure can call out people/groups pretty fast when he feels like it.

  • Rex

    Was Trump elected to tweet? Seems that’s all he does. Oh, and golf.

    • thatotherjean

      Considering his campaign promises, let him tweet and golf 24/7 rather than fulfill them.

  • David Walker

    Has anyone uncoded what the “beautiful letter” refers to? Either legit news orgs or Cult 45ers?

  • Rex

    Says the man wearing asbestos pants.

  • justmeeeee

    Lying? Wait…what’s that? Who’s a liar?

  • Lakeview Bob

    There is something here involving a pot and a kettle and the color black. Everyone would understand this except the Furor.

  • JWC

    The more he is cornered the more paniced he becomes.Its coming soon

  • Uncle Mark

    Isn’t it nice that our glorious leader can take precious time out of his full & hectic schedule of making America great to take a moment to insult a former member of the intelligence community, after seeing him on TV (which is utterly amazing since, he’s too busy to watch that either.).

    What a preening, petty little man. A real leader would have better things to worry about, and would be too busy. I don’t recall our last REAL President took any time away to engage in childish mudslinging. He was a man of action, who let his behavior speak for itself.

    • wmforr

      But this one does nothing but brag and insult, brag and insult. I really wish some people who knew him in high school and college would come forward with their impressions.

      • Smokey

        He probably had all of them sign non-disclosure agreements even way back then…

      • RoFaWh

        They’ve probably all repressed the memories and would not welcome having them reawakened.

      • Ann Kah

        “Oh, whatsits name that got kicked out?”

  • kareemachan

    Well, now I know how I’m supposed to view his tantrums. Okay, then…

  • TheManicMechanic

    A toddler as president. Whoda thunk it.

    • wmforr

      He says if Congress doesn’t buy him tinker toys to build his wall, he’ll hold his breath till his face turns orange.

  • Mike C

    So we’ve reached the “talking in the 3rd person” portion of the attempted dictatorship.

    • wmforr

      He’s been using “we” for “I” for years.

  • Ken M

    He’s lashing out at someone for lying? Is he upset than someone did it better than him?

  • JWC
  • Jean-Marc in Canada
  • Davester

    Do you notice the number of likes and retweets of Trump are decreasing?

  • DevineBovine

    As much as I despise Trump, Clapper is a confirmed liar.

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      Doesn’t mean he’s wrong

      • DevineBovine

        He has zero credibility.
