“The New York Times had no legitimate sources, which would be totally illegal, concerning the Mueller Report,” he tweeted. “In fact, they probably had no sources at all! They are a Fake News paper [sic] who have already been forced to apologize for their incorrect and very bad reporting on me!”

“False,” tweeted the newspaper’s official communications account in response. “Our reporters interviewed multiple government officials and others to gather the facts for the story.”

The Times went on to include a link to its latest report indicating some investigators working on the Mueller report believed its findings were more problematic for the president than a four-page document submitted by Attorney General Bill Barr suggested.

  1. If the same man who tells you that the noise from windmills give you cancer, tells us that his record for truthiness (ie only 9000 plus discovered lies since inauguration as per the fact checking sites) is better than that of the New York Times (who helped discover the lack of truthiness of a certain President Tricky Dicky), who are we to argue!

    All we need now is to wait until the President puts the issue to rest by releasing his tax returns (which he promised to do in….um….2016) and then he can immediately take a quick break from his latest golf match and get round to releasing the un-redacted Mueller report. He can then have it authorized ( by getting Mr Mueller go on Fox or some other Presidential authorized site and say that at least Barr left this one alone.)

    If we didn’t know better we might start to think this is now a race between the leader of the free world aka Agent Orange demonstrating his complete exoneration and the UK Parliament putting the final touches to BREXIT. Have I got time to go to make a cup of coffee before the results are announced?
