Duckin’ Donald & the Great Phone Skedaddle

AP
JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Muslim-smashin’, Mexican-bashin’ tough guy Donald Trump seems to have been caught red-handed denying that he impersonated a non-existent spokesman to tell reporters how awesome he is. (Meet Trump Organization spokesman John Miller, who you can’t meet because he doesn’t exist.) Trump denied this notwithstanding the fact that he admitted to doing this in a legal deposition years ago. The story was bubbling all day. But when The Washington Post (attack organ run by Trump Arch-Nemesis Jeff Bezos) confronted him with the deception on the phone, he first went silent on the reporters and then hung up.

When the reporters called back they were told Trump wasn’t available.

I am half expecting to hear news tonight of a slow speed chase down 6th Avenue, with Donald in the lead van, George from The Apprentice at the wheel, followed by an SUV full of WaPoniks in hot pursuit. A tragic turn of events. So far that doesn’t seem to have happened. But the stuff in the first paragraph did.
