Trump the Delusional

From his press conference today:
I put it out before the American people, got 306 electoral college votes. I wasn't supposed to get 222. They said there's no way to get 222. 230 is impossible. 270, which you need — that was laughable. We got 306. Because people came out and voted like they have never seen before. So that's how it goes. I guess it was the biggest electoral college win since Ronald Reagan.
...
Reporter: Mr. President, you said today that you have biggest electoral margins since Reagan with 350 electoral votes, and, in fact, president Obama got 365 -- [Trump mumbles in response] why should America — [ Trump tries to protest in response] why should America trust you when you accuse the — [ inaudible ]

Trump: Actually, I've seen that information around. It was a substantial difference, do you agree with that?

Reporter: You're the president.
And he is delusional. George W. Bush was the only president since Reagan to get fewer electoral votes than Trump (271 in `00, 286 in `04).

Every other president: George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton (twice) and Barack Obama (twice) all got more electoral votes than His Fraudulency.

Why is Trump lying about something that is so easily checked?

Is he that insecure of his own manhood that he has to rewrite the facts in his own mind so he is numero uno on everything?

Or is he simply delusional?

What I noticed about that exchange is how casually he dismissed it as something he'd been told, so no biggie, in the middle of a delusional rampage about the untrustworthiness of the "fake news" media.
Was he trying to provide an example of fake news and how it spreads?
Or did he just do so by accident?

I suspect he believes that his supporters will swallow whatever he comes up with and question anyone that says otherwise. In a way, what we are dealing with here is a cult, and his true believers will eventually have to be deprogrammed. It put it a little more scarily, the Manson family just won the White House...

The "It" above should be a "To"...

...however, since I missed the full Presser yesterday and only just now got to review it more closely, Manson in the WH might be an improvement...maybe he is really nucking futz?

It would seem so. That is the impression he's been leaving everywhere.
