This Is Seriously How Trump Defended Himself In A New Interview: 'I'm President, And You're Not'

| Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikDonald TrumpCrazzzzyControversy

In case you didn't know, Trump is president... 'and you're not'.

"I'm president, and you're not."

Yes, that's really how Donald Trump ended an interview with Time magazine!

On Thursday, the publication published the transcript from their Wednesday sit-down with POTUS about his credibility, and it was A LOT of him defending himself. You know, because he's president and all, so he's ~always~ right. Smh.

Before we get to Trump's ending argument, it's important to point out that he believes he predicted the future, and he is not at all concerned by his lack of substantial sources to back up his claims Obama's administration wiretapped his campaign.

Are you ready??

Drumpf started with a list of his predictions, including NATO, Brexit, and the election being rigged against Bernie Sanders.

But when it comes to the wiretapping, he is so confident he will be provedn right, despite the lack of evidence:

"Now remember this. When I said wiretapping, it was in quotes. Because a wiretapping is, you know today it is different than wire tapping. It is just a good description. But wiretapping was in quotes. What I'm talking about is surveillance. And today, [House Intelligence Committee Chairman] Devin Nunes just had a news conference. Now probably got obliterated by what's happened in London. But just had a news conference, and here it is one of those things. The other one, election, I said we are going to win, we won. And many other things. And I think this is going to be very interesting."

Continuing to speak on Devin's press conference on Wednesday, Donnie explained:

"Members of the Donald Trump Transition team possibly including Trump himself were under surveillance during the Obama administration following November's election. House intelligence chairman Devin Nunes told reporters, wow. Nunes said, so that means I'm right, Nunes said the surveillance appears to have been … incidental collection, that does not appear to have been related to concerns over Russia."

Of course when it was brought up that Devin also didn't have any evidence to support Trump's tweet, he defended himself, saying:

"Well, he just got this information. This was new information. That was just got. Members, of, let's see, were under surveillance during the Obama Administration following November's election. Wow. This just came out. So, ah, just came out."

Then there's also the 70-year-old's obsession with his claim that three million illegal votes being cast in the election — also despite the lack of evidence:

"Well I think I will be proved right about that too… If you take a look at the votes, when I say that, I mean mostly they register wrong, in other words, for the votes, they register incorrectly, and/or illegally. And they then vote. You have tremendous numbers of people. In fact I'm forming a committee on it. We'll see after the committee. I have people say it was more than that. We will see after we have. But there will be, we are forming a committee. And we are going to do a study on it, a very serious problem."

And it sounds like he's basing a lot of it off his gut feelings:

"I'm a very instinctual person, but my instinct turns out to be right. When everyone said I wasn't going to win the election, I said well I think I would."

Being president is all about instinct, right??

Seriously, shaking our heads at that.

Just remember, if Trump is putting out unverified claims out there in quotes, it's totally cool:

"Well, I'm not, well, I think, I'm not saying, I'm quoting, Michael [Scherer], I'm quoting highly respected people and sources from major television networks."

Right.

So, how did Donald get to the point where he told the interviewer he's president "and you're not"? Speaking on his credibility, he confessed:

"But I inherited a mess, I inherited a mess in so many ways. I inherited a mess in the Middle East, and a mess with North Korea, I inherited a mess with jobs, despite the statistics, you know, my statistics are even better, but they are not the real statistics because you have millions of people that can't get a job, ok. And I inherited a mess on trade. I mean we have many, you can go up and down the ladder. But that's the story. Hey look, in the mean time, I guess, I can't be doing so badly, because I'm president, and you're not. You know. Say hello to everybody OK?"

Wowwww.

We are SO curious to hear your thoughts on Trump's Time interview!! Make sure to sound off in the comments (Below) and read on for more HIGHlights about leakers…

On where the wiretapping came from: "Well I don't know where these wiretaps came from. They came from someplace. That is what they should find out. And you know the real story here is about the leakers. OK? You don't write about that. But the real story here is, who released General Flynn's name? Who released, who released my conversations with Australia, and who released my conversation with Mexico? To me, Michael, that's the story, these leakers, they are disgusting. These are horrible people."
On going after leakers: Well should be, because that's where the whole, who would think that you are speaking to the head of Mexico, the head of Australia, or General Flynn, who was, they are not supposed to release that. That is the most confidential stuff. Classified. That's classified. You go to prison when you release stuff like that. And who would release that? The real story is, they have to work, intelligence has to work on finding out who are the leakers. Because you know what? When things get involved with North Korea and all the problems we have there, in the Middle East, I mean, that information cannot be leaked out, and it will be by this, this same, and these people were here in the Obama years, because he had plenty of leakers also. But intelligence has to find out, who are these people. Because the biggest story here is, who is leaking this classified information.
