Enraged Trump Denies He Flushed Documents Down The Toilet: ‘Who Would Know That?!’

During a Saturday morning phone-in interview with the hosts of “Fox & Friends,” failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump denied a report from Maggie Haberman of the New York Times that he had flushed documents down toilets at the White House while he was still in office, but offered zero proof to rebut what Haberman claimed.

Co-host Will Cain teed up the subject for the loser ex-president:

“There’s a national conversation that seems to be completely out of touch with the American people at every step of the way, and I think one of those examples might be the latest obsession President Trump, which is, again, and always seemingly about you. Maggie Haberman of the New York Times has a book out she has been discussing on CNN and the other platforms. The big take away is that you have ripped up papers and flushed them down the toilet. What is your reaction on what you’re hearing on other mainstream media channels in this book by Maggie Haberman?”

Rather than use facts to counter Haberman, Trump turned to his usual rhetoric about “fake news” and how everything it the fault of the media:

“Yeah it’s fake news and she’s a fake writer. She got a Pulitzer Prize for Russia, Russia, Russia, and then they found out it was a hoax. And so did others. Frankly the ones that get Pulitzer Prizes they happen to work around you and around Pete. And I will tell you, it’s a disgrace.”

The Russia story, it should be noted, was NOT a hoax. Several members of the Trump 2016 campaign were in close touch with Russian nationals and had in-person meetings to obtain “dirt” on Hillary Clinton.

Trump then focused in on Haberman’s upcoming book, Confidence Man (which is the perfect title for a book about Con Man Don), which you can rest assured he wouldn’t read even if he had an advance copy:

“But, no, it’s a totally false story. She made it up. I don’t believe they have sources. Who is going to be a source for that anyway? Who would know that? There is no source. They make it up. You know, they oftentimes, these fake writers like her, they act like they know me like she knows me. I haven’t spoken to her in a very, very long time. She knows me no better than any other writer. They write books like they know and then they make things like that up. There would be no way of her knowing if it were the fact. There would be no way of her understanding that or knowing it. But it’s a totally fake story made up by her.”

There was also the obligatory attempt by the failed former president to blame every problem in the world on the news media:

“As much of the news is, I will tell you, this country we have to get honest reporting. Because if we don’t get honest reporting. It’s really leading us down a bad path. And it’s really leading us down a path of anger.”

Where exactly are we supposed to get that “honest reporting”? From Fox? Even Fox admits its hosts shouldn’t be taken seriously.

Is Newsmax “honest reporting”? Hardly! What about One America News (OAN)? All they do is push one conspiracy theory after another.

Want to know how you can tell the revelation of Toiletgate from Haberman is true? You need look no further than the anger coming from Trump and his surrogates in response to the report.
