You gotta have a soft spot in your head to appear on a nationally-acclaimed Sunday morning news show and then taunt the host with 4th grade name-calling like President Trump did with “Face the Nation” host John Dickerson today.
While appearing on Face the Nation, President Donald Trump reluctantly admitted to host … Dickerson that being president was harder than he had anticipated.
“It’s always a challenge like life itself is a challenge,” Trump opined. “It’s very funny when the fake media goes out — which we call the mainstream media, which sometimes, I must say is you.”
“You mean, me personally?” Dickerson wondered.
“Your show, I love your show,” Trump quipped. “I call it ‘Deface the Nation’, but your show is sometimes not exactly correct.”
That will no doubt keep his fellow schoolyard bullies who hang around the Oval Office chortling for days.
Not exactly Churchillian, as with the wartime British Prime Minister’s alleged apocrypal insult:
The story is being told of his encounter with a politically minded lady who, after failing to shake him in an argument, broke off with the petulant remark, “Oh, if you were my husband, I’d put poison in your tea.” “Madame,” Winston responded, “if I were, I’d drink it with pleasure.”
Still, at least Trump refrained from following the insult with a sneering, “Nyyaaaah!”
