Hey, we’ve already done the moon

Aaron Rupar watched Trump babbling:

TRUMP: “I defeated the caliphate … I defeated the caliphate, ISIS.” He then threaten to release ISIS fighters at the border of European countries if those countries don’t agree to take them back. “Then they’ll have to capture them again,” he says.

“Our media has become the laughingstock of the world … the media of our country is laughed at all over the world now. You’re a joke.”

“We’re going to Mars. We’re stopping at the moon. The moon is actually a launching pad. That’s why we’re stopping at the moon. I said, ‘hey, we’ve already done the moon. That’s not so exciting.’ They said, ‘no sir, it’s a launching pad for Mars.'”

There’s that “sir” again.

Trump on military strikes against Iran: “It’s all set to go. But I’m not looking to do that … I could do it right here, in front of you. And that will be it. And then you’ll have a nice big story to report. I think it shows far more strength to do it the way we’re doing it.”

Trump claims the Taliban is terrified of him because of how hard he’s hitting them: “It’s come back to me through absolutely impeccable sources that they’re saying, ‘wow, we made a mistake with this guy.'”

The Guardian sums up:

Typically confusing, and contradictory, statements from Trump just now.

Trump referred to the whistleblower controversy a “ridiculous story”.

And then: asked whether Trump discussed Joe Biden in conversations with Ukraine, Trump said: “It doesn’t matter what I discussed”. He added: “Someone ought to look into Joe Biden.”

Trump also said the whistleblower was “partisan”, before telling the White House reporter he did not know who the whistleblower is.

Dunno who whistleblower is, whistleblower is partisan.

Trump doesn’t think about epistemology much, does he.
