Of course Donald Trump is the kind of person who has time to rant on Fox News but not to bother to get his wife a birthday present.
Yet somehow, after nearly three years of him being such a major presence (ugh) in our daily lives, it’s still a small surprise to find out that this is how he rolls.
The revelation came at the very top of what turned out to be an absolutely mind-blowing half-hour phone interview with the president on his favorite safe space, “Fox and Friends.”
Right out of the gate, Trump wished Melania a very happy birthday, but, when asked the hard-hitting follow-up about what he got her for the big day, Trump had to admit he was literally empty-handed. Well, except for a very nice card!
Right, because Trump is too busy calling in to news shows and ranting for 30 minutes to get his assistant to order Melania something nice off of Amazon? You had time to pick out a card (allegedly), but you don’t have time to even get her a Zales gift card?
That wasn’t even the weirdest part of the interview, though. For instance, after having previously denied any knowledge of his attorney’s Michael Cohen’s involvement in paying off Stormy Daniels, Trump seemed to straight-up admit Cohen represented him in that regard.
And then there was the general tone of the entire interview during which Trump raised his voice many times, his emotions apparently getting them best of him especially when talking about James Comey and the ongoing Russia investigation.
And this all happened before 9 a.m. n
Just another day in 2018.
