Donald Trump made an appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program last night and validated the sense of relief among many Americans that this deranged purveyor of lies and misinformation was no longer our president.
Displaying his enormous ego along with a minuscule command of the facts and reality, Trump provided a range of outrageous statements and opinions during the interview with Hannity and social media was quick to comment upon and pick apart his every ludicrous utterance.
Here is a sampling of Trump’s most inane and insane statements and the responses that they engendered on Twitter.

This is a political stunt by tfg to get (more) media coverage and raise 💰. The media should focus on the steps he took that empowered the Taliban, after meeting with Putin in Helsinki. pic.twitter.com/5XQOMmByeg

Trump says he wants people to take the Covid vaccine but also if you don't want to that's fine too pic.twitter.com/l056DxBknJ

“Now we were supposed to have a war and probably a very big nuclear war [with North Korea].”

He had four years and didn’t do anything but now he’s saying I would have done this and done that. Then why didn’t you?

Trump looked terrible in a Hannity interview that seemed scripted. Hannity enables him & looked alarmed when Trump went off script.
Trump always projects & confesses. Claiming Fmr Afghan Pres Ghani wined & dined Senators means Trump was paid off for his treason w/ the Taliban.

It goes without saying, but I will say it anyway. THANK GOD TRUMP is NOT president.

Almost as bad as “Our (Continental) army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over the airports, it did everything it had to do, and at Fort McHenry, under the rockets’ red glare, it had nothing but victory,”

Hannity's interview w/Trump last night about Afghanistan was a rambling mish-mash of nonsensical, asinine comments & run-on incoherent remarks revealing the deep ignorance, incompetence, stupidity & dishonesty from an illiterate gaslighting fascist buffoon who should be in jail.

Reminder that when he did have access he rarely sat for briefings, was shown pictures when he did, didn’t ask questions and did not read any of the detailed information that was available to him. Note: #donnycantread so what ever he said then was based on what he saw on TV…

Trump may be cagey on whether he is going to run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2024, but, in truth, that decision will remain largely in the hands of the many prosecutors currently investigating his many alleged criminal actions both before and after his term as president.
If only they could speed up their prosecutions so the public isn’t subjected to this lunatic con man’s demented ravings.
