You get used to President Trump blowing bullshit, but this has to rank as the most inelegant non sequitur in the history of presidential remarks. Here’s Trump on Wednesday, fielding a question about the “sharp rise in anti-Semitic incidents across the United States:”
Well, I just want to say that we are, you know, very honored by the victory that we had — 316 electoral college votes. We were not supposed to crack 220. You know that, right? There was no way to 221, but then they said there’s no way to 270. And there’s tremendous enthusiasm out there.
Thanks clearing up your feelings about hateful behavior, Mr. President. Your words are a comfort in these troubled times.
