Trump To Greg Kelly On Newsmax: Poor, Poor Pitiful Me

I gotta say, even though Newsmax “journalist” Greg Kelly walks right up to the line of outright Renfield-ism, he does not seem all that different from Kristen Welker on Meet The Press. Just sayin’! Anyway, here’s that interview, and here’s how Morning Joe reacted:

KELLY: Mr. President, I’m very curious about what it’s like for you in your life. You know, you’re — no one’s gone through what you’ve gone through. nobody in human history has really — and I know you have supporters, friends, family, they say it’s lonely at the top, and I’m actually curious. Is it ever lonely for you? I mean, no one can fully relate to what you have been through, and what you are going through. are you ever lonely?

TRUMP: so I was — over the years, I love history. I study history, and I was always told that Andrew Jackson as a president was treated the absolute worst. He was just really lambasted, and I heard Abraham Lincoln was second, but he was in, I think, the Civil War, so you can understand that, but Andrew Jackson was really, really treated badly. In fact, his wife died during the process. A lot of people say she died because of the way they were treated. I mean, she was heartbroken and broken in so many other ways, and I heard that for years, and I look now, even last night I was saying it. I said, there’s no — I don’t care. Andrew Jackson or anybody else. Nobody has — when you think of the fake things, nobody’s been treated like Trump in terms of badly.

“I mean, are you kidding me?” an incredulous Mika Brzezinski said.

“I mean, these networks that are networking Trump’s lies –and I’ll keep it serious. I’m not going to make fun of people or whatever, but it is creating a whole level of lies that people are swallowing whole because they think that’s news. They think those are facts, and that’s the part that’s sad. I mean, it’s pathetic that Donald Trump parallels himself to Abraham Lincoln and anybody else, but it’s more pathetic and truly pathetic that our democracy is on the line because if that guy becomes president, look at his last house guest, and that’s our country,” she said, referring to VIktor Orban’s stay at Mar-A-Lago.

“Yeah. I mean, that’s pure North Korean state media, that kind of interview. ‘Why are you treated so badly? Why are you so great? Why are people so mean to you?’ Also, another thing happened to Abraham Lincoln that former president Trump didn’t get to, in terms of treated badly,” Willie Geist said.

“We’ll leave that right there, but to your more serious point, it’s a good one which is there are all kinds of media outlets friendly to Trump whose audiences are receiving that message, the one you saw. They’re not receiving messages about his stolen documents. They’re not receiving messages about his attempts to overturn the election in 2020, all the legal trouble in front of him that we’re about to talk about. They’re hearing that, and so you have a — not a majority of the country, but a large swath of the country that’s taking what you see there as news.”

They could just play this instead:
