President Trump’s comments during the joint press conference he held with German Chancellor Angela Merkel are even more brilliant and his timing and delivery spot on when heard in the full context of the question, the entirety of his response and with Merkel also visible throughout.
A reporter asked President Trump the customary two questions, the first being, “Government officials in London today rejected White House claims that the alleged wiretapping on you, on Trump Tower, on the Trump organization or on members of your campaign, was, that British Intelligence was either responsible for it or involved it in.”
President Trump replied with an honest statement, that “We said nothing. All we did was quote a very talented legal mind who was the one responsible for saying that on television. I didn’t make an opinion on it. That was a statement made by a very talented lawyer [and former NJ Superior Court Judge] on Fox. And so you shouldn’t be talking to me, you should be talking to Fox.”
As Merkel looks on the reporter asks, “Are there from time to time tweets that you regret?” President Trump responds immediately, almost before another word is uttered in the question, “Very seldom. Very seldom, probably wouldn’t be here right now [without the tweets] but very seldom.”
He continues, “I have a tremendous group of people that listen and I can get around the media when the media doesn’t tell the truth, so I like that. As far as wiretapping, I guess, by, you know, this past administration, at least we have something in common perhaps,” pointing with an open hand over towards Chancellor Merkel.
The line was delivered perfectly, with the same precision timing that Johnny Carson used to deliver his lines, waiting for people in the audience to catch up to the joke. It was fearless and it was funny, and the expression on his face matched perfectly. He was Carnac, without the envelope or the chair cushion turned turban on his head.
The liberal propagandists attempted to portray there as being an awkward moment. That’s the humor that was lost on them in their fury to find something nefarious in everything Trump does.
Merkel, perhaps not catching the translation or in awe of the American newcomer, shuffled her papers with a “did he just say what I think he said,” look on her face. Yes, he did Chancellor. Our President goes off script, that’s how he gets things done. You’ll get used to it, you’ll have to.
