Trump Says News Is Fake but Leaks Are Real

This Might Be 1 of the Most Absurd Things Trump's Ever Said — and He's Said a Lot

In what world does this make sense?

Trump made this point once again during his absurd press conference on Thursday, saying, "The leaks are absolutely real. The news is fake, because so much of the news is fake."

And the internet expertly took him to task for it.

His answer might still not make any sense but at least we can laugh about it — because that's all that seems to help these days.
