Wash Post reporter: Trump asked us to run electoral map on front page



A Washington Post reporter says President Trump asked the newspaper to run the 2016 electoral map on the front page to mark his 100th day in office.

The Post's White House Bureau Chief Philip Rucker on Friday said that Trump pulled out a copy of the map during an interview this week and asked for it to be included on the front page alongside the interview story.

"He brought out the map, he said, 'Aren't you impressed by this map?' " Rucker told MSNBC's Chris Hayes.


"He encouraged me to take it home to my colleagues at the Washington Post and try to run it on the front page of our newspaper. I think he was sort of playing there, but it speaks to the pride that he has in that map."

Seriously, if he wasn't ruining our country, I'd almost feel bad for him. He's pathetic.

5. Ahhh... he's so proud of all those UNPOPULATED EMPTY ACRES!! It reminds me of other elections...

... where the LAND AREA was used as a visual compensation for LACK OF ACTUAL VOTERS.

Pathetic! Totally lame. Sad.

9. The thing about that map is that it shows who won by county.

It's deceptive because many counties don't actually have a lot of people in them. There are a lot of mostly vacant but physically large counties that he won. However, the blue counties are the ones that actually have people in them. The county I live in has a population of 1.2 million and it's blue on that map, but it doesn't take up as much room as Trump's sparsely inhabited red counties. So basically he won a lot of empty real estate.

11. I'm watching the Harry Potter weekend marathon on Freeform TV and the

scene where the students get a quiz about professor Gilderoy Lockhart in Defence Against the Dark Arts class reminded me of DT:

"What is Gilderoy Lockhart's secret ambition?"

"What is Gilderoy Lockhart's greatest accomplishment to date?"

"What is Gilderoy Lockhart's favorite color?"

"How many times has Gilderoy Lockhart been voted Witch Weekly's Most Charming Smile award?"

"When is Gilderoy Lockhart's birthday and what would his ideal gift be?"

The vanity reminds me of Drumpf. Gilderoy would have wanted his ekectoral map published also if he had one.

Maybe Trump will share a similar fate (having his evil backfire).

13. How ironic!!!

The Wash Post, which he hates almost as much as the NYTimes, and which he accuses of publishing fakes news almost every day. So out of touch with what is truly important. So ignorant and blind to his own malignant narcissism. Pathetic.
