The White House claims Trump is the most informed person on the planet – 11 informed rebuttals
For several days, Donald Trump has been embroiled in accusations of ignoring a bounty placed on the heads of US soldiers by Vladimir Putin, with proof emerging that the claim was shared with the US President in a written briefing in February.
On Monday, the White House Press Secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, excused Trump by claiming that he hadn’t been “personally briefed”, implying that the written information he’d been given wasn’t enough.
Naturally, the press followed this up at Tuesday’s briefing.
Kayleigh: The President does read and also consumes intelligence verbally. This President is the most informed person on the planet earth when it comes to the threats that we face pic.twitter.com/tr0e8MU0LN

Let’s look at those points:
The President does read.
He consumes intelligence “verbally”.
He is the most informed person on planet earth.
Hang on – what?

Twitter users weren’t convinced.
If Trump is the most informed person on planet, then I must be the straightest.
See? Just saying it doesn’t make it so. https://t.co/hxIReknMfk

Kayleigh has words. All of them are lies. Binders full of lies.
There should be a laugh track to accompany her statement. https://t.co/ddXMu0EVY8

He thought Finland was part of Russia and didn't know that the UK has an arsenal of nuclear weapons.
He's not the most informed person on the planet on any subject. He's an angry simpleton with a colossal ego and tiny intellect.

OMG I guess she wants a job at the Trump Org or Fox after this. You could not pay me enough to humiliate myself like this.

Joseph Goebbels just texted me to suggest that Kayleigh might want to dial it down a little.

He wouldn’t even be the most informed person at a Planet Hollywood.

He's also, he would acknowledge, the most humble person ever to have existed. https://t.co/tiF20UbpjS

Can you imagine calling a press conference in one hour with the main talking point being – "The President Does Read."

Kayleigh: Trump is the most informed person on Earth.
Me: So doesn’t that kind of kill your “he wasn’t briefed” excuse? 🤔
