That was of course typical Trumpian hyperbole and probably a joke as the 72 year-old POTUS in truth sounds more like a rambling old geezer every day. To illustrate this we now go to Fox Business’s Mario Bartiromo who in an interview with Trump, couldn’t get the old windbag to shut the hell up.
Trump was doing one of his lame call-ins where he pretends he’s a Howard Stern listener instead of a sitting president and yakking incoherently about his favorite topic: the now three-year-old 2016 election. Despite her best efforts, Bartiromo couldn’t get a word in edgewise.
Instead Trump continued rambling about the “deep state” and the “swamp” also calling James Clapper “a dummy” while Bartiromo desperately tried to cut him off.
LOL -- @MariaBartiromo desperately tried to wrap up her phone interview with Trump, but Trump refused to stop talking about "cleaning the swamp" and how Clapper is "a dumb guy." pic.twitter.com/z1NrlTHw7d— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) April 29, 2019
People couldn’t resist joking about the fact that we have a president whose every remark could be accurately captioned: “Old man yells at cloud.”
That move where the C-SPAN host just tries to get the crazy caller off the air, except it’s the President of the United States. https://t.co/86MeJYj4Qz— Matt Fuller (@MEPFuller) April 29, 2019
this is like a real life version of 'sir, this is a wendy's' https://t.co/dDihs20jPL— Jorge Ribas (@jribas) April 29, 2019
It is really mind-blowing to watch a TV anchor try to "wrap" the President of the United States. "Thank you so much," she says. He keeps talking. "Yeah," she says, trying to interrupt. "Mr. Pres--" "I know you have a busy day..." pic.twitter.com/9YnOYCe0xc— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) April 29, 2019
It's like Bartiromo trying to get the crazy guy off the phone, except it's the president https://t.co/xdW3M8s6xB— Emily C. Singer (@CahnEmily) April 29, 2019
Once gramps starts yelling at clouds, all you can do is wait for him to run out of gas. https://t.co/9pidfWwo83— Charles Johnson (@Green_Footballs) April 29, 2019
Sadly this isn’t the first time some terrible show has tried to get Old Man Trump off the line during on of his telephone tirades.
