Trump Covid 19 Debacle Devolves into Internecine Legal Battle

A stunned White House Press Corps listened in silence as President Trump held a 20 minute impromptu unscheduled press "briefing" that left one spectator musing "was that an example of a Neo-Dada schizophrenic performance art work or a self inflicted metaphysical pie fight?".

Trump initiated the briefing by announcing that he had not been the one to muse about ingesting toxic disinfectants to cure Covid 19 infections, "wasn't me, I wasn't here, it was that bastard John Barron who many of you old timers know and have talked with from time to time. He lured me into the upstairs bedroom with an order of Big Macs, Fries and ice cream, locked me in and came down and did the press conference."

As reporters watch with mouths gapping wide open he explained that his long time friend, prankster buddy and nemesis had gotten tired of not getting out and grabbing stuff and sabotaged the President's press briefing in an effort to undermine the President's re election campaign.

"I can't believe you guys fell for it, because even though he is very good looking he can't really compare with me. To be honest I have used him for some events to fill in for me when I need to take a day off but when he isn't filling in for me he has to stay around in the back bedroom and he's had enough of this White House gig."

Trump announced that he had retained counsel to sue Barron for $ 50,000,000 for breach of contract as he had made the alter ego persona sign a 22 page contract in 2016 when he had him accompany him to the White House.

Three different reporters reported that they had received phone calls shortly after the briefing from John Barron announcing that he was going to counter sue Trump adding "I can't wait until we get him before a camera during the depositions, this guy is the worst witness in the history of the world. Before I am done with him I will own everything he owns."

I looked to see if it was Borowitz or the Onion.. but nope.. it's hard to believe he really said all this in front of actual people. Isn't John Barron his alter ego?

He already had son named Don, Jr., this is him naming a second son after himself to boost his sociopathic ego.

But this is really, truly weird. Do you think he's trying to be funny? Or has he's developed a dissociative identity disorder?

Be sure if it is fiction is telling.

CNN is reporting as fact that Trump did threaten to sue his campaign manager Brad Parscale for showing him poll numbers losing big to Biden.

Numerous reporters were called by Trump calling himself Barron (and recorded his conversations where he praised his boss D Trump.
