The Three Card Monte President

A professional grifter just played the whole country with a "so-called" press conference.

If you aspire to be a con-man, watch and learn from the master.

Hustlers all over the world are laughing their asses off in admiration.

Other than his deluded core supporters, people generally seem to be pretty awake to his tactics - at least from what I see on Twitter.

Roughly 25% of the population believes his bullshit, but they will believe anything.

The rest of us aren't buying it, never did, and this is just making us more and more angry the longer this drags on.

He deflected from a scandal about collusion with Russia that could end his presidency with a press conference that was so unhinged that even supporters are now questioning his sanity and fitness for office, thus pushing them toward "impeach him" territory.

You really think that's a win?
