Trump Blames Plummeting Poll Numbers on People Paying Attention When He Talks
People are listening to what I say one day and comparing it to something I said on a different day," the President said. "These are very sick and terrible people.

Does Trump really think we aren't listening?

WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Borowitz Report)—Calling it a "disgraceful situation," Donald J. Trump on Monday blamed his sinking poll numbers on people paying attention when he talks.

Noting that his approval rating has plummeted since he began holding coronavirus briefings, he said, "There are a lot of people out there who are listening to things I say and basing their opinions on them, and I think it's very sad."

In addition to people paying attention when he talks, Trump said that he was being "treated very unfairly by people who remember what I say."

"People are listening to what I say one day and comparing it to something I said on a different day," he said. "These are very sick and terrible people."

Trump also lashed out at the pollsters themselves, who, he alleged, are "doing a hit job on me" by seeking the opinions of people who listened to things he said.

"The fact that they're talking to people who have listened to me proves how crooked and rigged these polls are," he said. "People who haven't listened to me think I'm doing great."

Trump said that, if people persist in listening to him, he may stop talking altogether. "I think that's a really good plan," Trump said. "Dr. Fauci suggested it to me."

It's nice to know the author is a comedian and that the article is simply satire.

But yeah, that's my main complaint about Trump. He talks too much and has no filter between his brain and his mouth. That's why I try not to listen to him, weather it be press conferences, rallies, or whatever. He does not have a way with words like Reagan did.

I really don't like the guy or his personality. However, that is not reason enough to vote for Biden or ANY Democrat.

Wow, this is great, I quit listening to him months ago.

I saw the Rose Garden Ramble. It was blather! The networks were cutting him off because it wasn't a press conference. It was just Trump lying, again...

I think it was a brilliant move on Trump's part. Since the liberal press corps gives him 24/7 on air and on line exposure, he might as well get in a little bit of campaigning, and pointing out how bad an actor Biden really is. Every thing he said about old and senile sleepy Joe is true.

That explains why Trump's approval rate is dropping like a rock in the polls. You approve!

Well DUH dumbass.  Their blinders are coming off and they are wising up to your lies, bigotry, hate, hypocrisy, lack of leadership, bromances with foreign dictators, pettiness, and bending over backwards for your cronies and fellow criminals while bending over for Putin.  That is why you are losing support.  They are finally wise to your bs.  Maybe if you just stfu and quit tweeting, you might keep the few followers you have, although at this juncture, it won't help.

The Dems don't have the numbers to win. Too many sane and decent people in the US, whose votes will deny them the prize of the presidency once again.

The Numbers To Win? Millions of Trump voters died off from olde age since 2016 and nobody replaced them. Biden is ahead anywhere from ten to twenty percent depending on the poll....

Here in Trumpland rank satire pales in comparison with our reality. Orwell wouldn't believe it...

No, it really is satire, written by a left wing comedian.
