Trump Blasts Critics of ‘Chosen One’ Comments, Says They ‘Knew’ He Was ‘Kidding’ and ‘Being Sarcastic’

Jonathan Ernst/Reuters

President Donald Trump blasted the critics of his recent “chosen one” comment, proclaiming that the reporters assembled “knew” that he was joking when he said it.

In a pair of tweets published Saturday morning, Trump went after the reporters at his recent press conference, claiming that they “knew” he was “kidding” and “being sarcastic” when he declared himself “the chosen one” to tackle rebalancing trade with China during a press conference on Wednesday.

“When I looked up to the sky and jokingly said ‘I am the chosen one,’ at a press conference two days ago, referring to taking on Trade with China, little did I realize that the media would claim that I had a ‘Messiah complex.’ They knew I was kidding, being sarcastic, and just having fun.”

The president went on to claim that “many” of the reporters were “smiling” with him as he cracked the joke and slammed the major media outlets who “covered it as serious news.”

“I was smiling as I looked up and around. The MANY reporters with me were smiling also. They knew the TRUTH…” wrote Trump. “And yet when I saw the reporting, CNN, MSNBC and other Fake News outlets covered it as serious news [and] me thinking of myself as the Messiah.”

“No more trust!” the president added.

Trump also defended his comments on Saturday to reporters as he was departing for the G7 summit, reiterating that the remark was “sarcasm.”

“You know exactly what I meant,” said Trump. “It was sarcasm, it was joking, we were all smiling — and a question like that is just fake news. You’re just a faker.”

>Always Confused One< What you're saying then – – – as a"professional" ____??_____ – – -is that there is only one God which the Muslims, Jews and Christians ALL worship TOGETHER? Where does Allah fit in the picture? Mohammed? Is it a common practice in ALL religions to call for CONVERTING to its' religion; OR, as under Islam, the MURDER of only Jews (born of apes and pigs) and Christians (born of swine) (Example: Sura 9.5 (4.89 and 2.191) "Slay the Isolaters wherever you find them?" The Jewish and Christian God does NOT (that I'm aware of) promote anti-Semitism (ex:… Read more »

“I know my Christian God and he is loving” Jill I compiled this list of verses because of my love of truth, even in the scriptures. I didn’t realize how much “love” a god could have for one of his own creations. Thank you for relieving me of some of my confusion, Sister Jill! Leviticus 20:13 NAB Exodus 22:17 NAB Leviticus 20:13 NAB Exodus 21:15 NAB Proverbs 20:20 NAB Leviticus 20:9 NLT Leviticus 20:10 NLT Leviticus 21:9 NAB Exodus 22:19 NAB 2 Chronicles 15:12-13 NAB Zechariah 13:3 NAB Deuteronomy 13:13-19 NLT Deuteronomy 13:7-12 NAB Deuteronomy 17:2-5 NLT Leviticus 24:10-16 NLT… Read more »

*Generally Confused*. You are neither as smart as you portray yourself to be nor do you influence anyone’s thinking. James is absolutely correct when he says most of “the whole IJR family is laughing at him/her”. You attempt to resort to biblical references but use them blasphemously. The devil is not discriminatory in whom he gets to tell his lies. And you can quote me on that.

“The Christian and Jewish God are not the same as the Muslim deity. They share some history, but the one true Christian and Jewish God is the God of love, mercy, and grace. Those distinctly are not attributes of the Koran deity!!” Jill

Sorry to burst your comfortable little bubble that you live in, Jill, but you are confused. You can fix that, though, if you do a bit more research. Here is the beginners’ course. You can look up more detailed research yourself.

“Notice how ;the Ignorant One picks fights with many. He’s desperate for attention.” I Ching Not true. I only question those who seem confused or try to point out the obvious failure of logic, lies or just plain stupidity or ignorance in posts. The illogic of doing this is that it won’t move the needle for braindead people. In the off-chance someone here can actually think for themselves, welcome aboard, mate! “It’s not like they actually contribute to discussions.” I Ching Au contraire, my confused friend. I try not to waste my or your precious time by not actually contributing… Read more »

“I have serious doubt God would have approved of a Christian-hating Muslim like Barry Soetoro as His chosen one to lead a Judeo-Christian Nation.cm” Confused James Doubts? Do you mean to say that your god hasn’t unconfused you yet? My, my. You see, your confusion stems from the fact that the Muslim, Hebrew AND Christian god is the one and the same god. The Abrahamic god is the same god for each sect. Anyone who knows anything about their religion would know this. Tsk, tsk. I tried to explain this before, but it seems that you remain confused, so maybe… Read more »

I have serious doubt God would have approved of a Christian-hating Muslim like Barry Soetoro as His chosen one to lead a Judeo-Christian Nation. Barry was chosen by the low/no-IQ voters standing in line for the freebies he promised and the transformation of the US into a Third World Sh**hole/utopia like his native Kenya.

ALL those DOWN votes the Always Confused One receives are "support" for him/her. Little does HE/SHE realize the whole IJR family is laughing at him/her.

Maybe it's like something Biden might say: It's better to be thought of as being plain stupid than to be known as plumb ignorant.
