Trump keeps digging deeper. And the media keeps feigning shock.

“In a pre-recorded interview with Fox News’s Sean Hannity, [Donald Trump] insisted: ‘If you’re the president of the United States, you can declassify just by saying, it’s declassified. Even by thinking about it, because you’re sending it to Mar-a-Lago or to wherever you’re sending it.’ This, of course, acknowledges that the documents he hoarded were highly sensitive, that Trump knew they were and that he sent them to Mar-a-Lago anyway. Former FBI special agent Asha Rangappa called Trump’s remarks the ‘Secret Telepathic Unilateral Preemptive Irreversible Declassification’ — or ‘S.T.U.P.I.D.’ — defense. … This is precisely the sort of self-damaging delusion that we have come to expect from Trump. … Unfortunately, the mainstream media has refused to come right out and say it: He’s unable to process reality. And in turn, millions of Americans have bought into his ludicrous conspiracy theories.” (09/22/22)
