Courtesy of The Hill:Trump, just before he makes remarks at the Fbi National Academy graduation, says this to reporters: "It's a shame what's happened with the FBI... The level of anger at what they've been witnessing with respect to the FBI is certainly very sad."pic.twitter.com/5KDcRkHv7Q— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) December 15, 2017
President Trump on Friday tore into the FBI just hours before speaking at the agency’s training academy.
“It’s a shame what's happened with the FBI. But we’re going to rebuild the FBI; it’ll be bigger and better than ever,” Trump told reporters.
The president doubled down on his criticism of the nation’s top law enforcement agency before leaving the White House for the FBI’s campus in Quantico, Va., where he spoke to law enforcement leaders graduating from a training program.
Trump said revelations about the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation and text messages from a top agent that were critical of him were “really, really disgraceful.”
“You have a lot of very angry people who are seeing it,” the president said. "It's a very sad thing to watch, I will tell you that."
By the way when Donald Trump says that "a lot of people are very angry" those people are really just the voices in his head.
They are also the same "people" who were finding "amazing" things about Barack Obama's birth certificate in Hawaii.
Now those statements above were straight from the orange tinted anus mouth of Trump in the morning, but later in the day he was singing a different tune.
Courtesy of Time Magazine:
President Trump praised FBI agents as “great, great people” and “heroes for all of us” at a graduation less than an hour after criticizing the agency to reporters on the South Lawn of the White House.
In a speech to the FBI National Academy’s graduating class, Trump argued that America should do more to protect and respect law enforcement officials, even calling for the death penalty for people who harm them.
“Deliver a message to your fellow officers — the President of the United States has your back 100 percent,” he said.
I try not to watch Trump in real time, and tend to wait until later and watch journalists reporting on what he said.
However this morning I actually watched both of these exchanges as they were happening, and during that speech to the FBI graduates by jaw just went slack.
It quite literally made me doubt what I had heard earlier today.
The man is either completely schizophrenic, or the comments to the reporters on the White House lawn are his actual opinions, and the shit he spewed in front of the graduates are words written for him by his speech writers to make him seem presidential, that he just reads off robotically like an episode of the Apprentice.
