5/16/2002 Press Update.
First of All I want to thank all the folks who put the text in the Teleprompter for me to Read. I do not know who you all are but am grateful for the good work you do to make me sound halfway intelligent. I know I am not a Lincoln who could actually deliver a speech without a Teleprompter …
But here goes … Think I can read what my staff has asked me to deliver. And believe me I Love all you lying dog-faced pony soldiers … wherever you are.
I know that I can get off-track sometimes. Hey — I know that “I am a gaffe machine,”
But bear with me.
“I will develop some disease and say I have to resign,” … Did I actually say that?
Is it civil to call someone who lied a liar? Did I say that?
You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. And I’m not joking, … just kidding.
And I kinda spoke out of turn when I said about Barack Obama “I mean, you’ve got the first sort of mainstream African American who is articulate and bright and clean,”
And I mean what I said when I said “Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”
And I deny saying “You’re a lying dog-faced pony soldier.” even though you media guys recorded it on video — you are all a bunch of dog-faced pony soldiers for running the Fucking clip.
Well — let me tell you, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or that Trump guy, then you ain’t black.” Am I sorry about that comment? No way, I get to decide who is Black. As President Bush said, I am the Great decider. And Hell I won the election fair and square … So shut the Fuck Up you a-holes in the media.
And Do not ask me about my son, Hunter getting $50K per month from a Ukrainian oil company — Presidents get to build family fortunes … Why in the Hell do you you think we go into politics? We got to get a little something for being in public service. I may be dead in a few years — but got to leave something for the family.
If you want me gone from the White House, wait to you get Camila Harris.
Thank you. I will not be taking questions, I need go and take my afternoon nap.
