1. Did Obama's WH put out press releases like that?

These are more like movie reviews. But then, that's how Trump thinks.

3. Well, no wonder he's stopped other agencies

from releasing information. He can't have anything competing with his releases of such vital information.

5. It would be awesome if someone could hack into whitehouse.gov

(it wouldn't be the Russians in this instance) and post some of the many not-so-favorable reviews. Has anybody set up a satirical web site with a similar name that might lure his dumbass fanboys? That would be fun.

6. Insecure and low esteem, too.

I wonder if he has the Magic Mirror app that keeps repeating; "You're the Greatest in the Land!"
