How Trump Pretending to Be His Own Imaginary Spokesman During Interviews Shows He Is Like Founding Fathers

Trump consigliere Roger Stone has admitted, contrary to Trump’s denials, that the Donald and his supposed spokesman John Miller (a.k.a. John Barron, John Baron) are one and the same. According to Stone, this shows the similarity between Trump and the Founding Fathers. No really:

Stone, a former [and now apparently informal] Trump political hand, said in an interview Saturday that Trump posed as his own spokesperson, but subsequently downplayed it, comparing it to the Founding Fathers using pseudonyms to get their message out without talking themselves.

“They focus on whether or not Donald Trump may or may not have posed as a public relations man in order to get his spin and his side of the story,” Stone said. “This is ridiculous. James Madison, John Adams, Alexander Hamilton — they all wrote under pseudonyms. They all had things they wanted to say, and they wrote under pseudonyms.”

But did they actually pretend to be a different person in a bizarre charade intended to puff up their own reputations? Did they lie about it afterward, claiming that they had never used the pseudonyms and knew nothing about them, even after having admitted in sworn testimony to the contrary?

This story is weird enough to make you wonder if Trump denies the truth out of insolence or mere habit, or because he has serious mental issues. Even Shrillary attempts to avoid easily disprovable lies when she can.

Like Stone, Trump’s washroom attendant Reince Priebus tried to play it down, admitting that the story is “a little bit odd,” but claiming the voters won’t care if a presidential candidate is a brazen liar and possible head case.

Trump himself is less nonchalant. When WaPo asked him about it in an interview on Friday, he freaked out, hung up the phone, and could not be reached for further comment.

Fortunately, one of his spokesmen was on hand to explain everything.
