August: Trump describes himself as "The Chosen One." October: "In my great and unmatched wisdom."

https://edition.cnn.com/2019/08/21/politics/donald-trump-chosen-one/index.html

In the midst of answering a question about the ongoing trade war with China on Wednesday, President Donald Trump turned from reporters, looked to heavens and proclaimed, "I am the chosen one."
He was, ostensibly, joking -- and, days later, the President said in a string of Saturday tweets that reporters knew he "was kidding, being sarcastic, and just having fun."







Yeah... He's joking.

When he asks Russia for Hillary's emails, he's joking.

When he says that he wants to be President-for-Life like President Xi Jinping, he's joking.

When he says he's the Chosen One, he's joking.

When he asks China to investigate Biden, he's joking.

1. Anyone else, I would say self-deprecating humor

but trump doesn't do self-deprecating anything.

12. And he has no

Sense of humor at all. I would say he doesn't do humor at all.

2. When he said 'only I can fix it'

He was not joking.

He is a mad mook with serious delusions of grandeur.

3. General Chang: "I am constant as the northern star!" McCoy: "I'd give real money if he'd shut up."

The bad guy in this scene is a vastly more intelligent version of Donald Trump: :p

4. It's why Evangelicals vote for Trump,

they believe that he is God's chosen one. I'm sure many Evangelical leaders have said this to Trump.

5. He asked Ukraine, Russia, China, and Australia. It's a pattern no joke


Not to forget he tried to subvert elements of the Italian and one of the Five Eyes Intell against the United States' own CIA and FBI.

10. It's suddenly a joke when it's not received well. He's not joking, he's deadly serious.

8. "in my great and unmatched wisdom"

If there is anything we know for sure about his wisdom, it is great and unmatched.

Enjoy your impeachment Donny boy

13. I have thought for some time he will call up a mindless mob.

When either removed or voted out of office. Who knows the chosen one may do it without warning for no apparent reason. No need to recruit train and arm Storm Troopers when you could recreate a modern self armed version of Mao’s Cultural Revolution. Think he is unhinged now it could get far worse.

15. His attempts at humour

His attempts at "humour" are usually cutting remarks aimed at anyone who disagrees with him. Stuff that wouldn't pass for jokes at the worst of any open mike night.

17. It's a trick, the fix is in

He didn't write that. He doesn't use words like reiterate or obliterate.
Putin is going to make him look like the man in the room with unmatched wisdom.

19. I think he's emulating Rush....

Years ago, when I could actually listen and laugh at that gasbag, I heard Rush say that he had "talent on loan from god", and things like that.
I believe that PART of trump's "humor" comes from that.
The rest..? From the voices in his head, I guess.
