Trump Just Returned From Vacation And Immediately Threw A Tantrum

While many thought that Donald Trump’s August vacation would bring a momentary lull to his raucous presidency, the President’s failure to condemn white supremacists and neo-Nazis at two separate rallies – in Charlottesville, Virginia and Boston, Massachusetts – has upended the West Wing and led to a slew of high-profile criticisms. Upon his return back to Washington, D.C. today, Trump again tweeted in an unhinged tantrum blaming, who else, but the “dishonest Fake News.”

Besides inadvertently admitting to spending his vacation watching television – which, at this point, should surprise exactly no one – Trump’s wholly predictable strike against the press is not only hypocritical, but perpetuates a feud that was entirely avoidable.

For Donald Trump, whose relationship with the truth is tenuous at best and horrendous otherwise, to lambast The New York Times, The Washington Post, and CNN, among others, as “fake,” is inane given his dismal track record with facts.

This is especially ironic given Trump’s recent endorsement of Breitbart News, which only today incorrectly used a photo of a German soccer star to illustrate a human trafficking story.

But more importantly, Trump’s spat with the media was avoidable in that all he had to do was simply condemn the literal neo-Nazis and white supremacists marching at the white supremacy rally in Charlottesville, Virginia whose abhorrent behavior ultimately left 32-year-old Heather Heyer dead when a deranged man plowed his car into a group of counterprotestors. Or the dismal 20 white supremacists who showed up in Boston, only to be outnumbered by 40,000 counterprotestors. Instead, the President blamed the violence on “both sides” in Charlottesville and labeled the largely peaceful counterprotestors as “anti police agitators” in Boston.

If Trump is at the point where he can do such monumental damage to his presidency while on vacation, his return to the Oval Office is certain to spell disaster for the embattled President.
