In case anyone wonders why Trump posted that idiotic "THE LONE WARRIOR!" tweet...

it was his first tweet or retweet after he retweeted Chuck Grassley saying this:






.@realDonaldTrump #CommonSense Trump shld be re-elected if for no other reason than he is the first Pres to challenge China over their unfair trade practices




This is bullshit from Grassley, of course.

But it played to Trump's ego and neediness, and so Trump spun it into his being "the lone warrior" (against China).


I'll admit that when I first saw that tweet -- where it was mentioned in an OP about the Lincoln Project's response --

https://www.democraticunderground.com/100213677527

I wondered what in hell Trump had meant.

But when you see it after Trump's retweet of Grassley's dishonest flattery, it makes more sense. At least in terms of Trump's narcissism.

6. No, he isn't. Definitely not. But don't be surprised if his cultists produce some "lone warrior"

fan art depicting him as the lone warrior superhero. And he'll probably retweet that crap.

Your nose is completely brown.

5. Stroke that ego, sucker.

Someone should ask Grassley what trump did that constitutes standing up to China and how in hell we benefited from it.
