Hold Me Closer, Tiny Table: Internet Has Field Day Over Trump's Mini Desk At Thanksgiving Presser – TPM

Somebody lied to him several times.

The ever-camera hungry President Donald Trump held Thanksgiving video teleconference call with members of the military in front of the press, and it was the first time Trump took questions from the media since his defeat on Election Day.

Though the President peddled the same tired lies about the election results, he seemed to acknowledge reality, saying he’d “certainly” leave the White House if the Electoral College cemented President-elect Joe Biden’s decisive victory.

But repeatedly getting challenged on his false claims got to be too much: At one point, Trump lashed out at Reuters correspondent Jeff Mason, shouting “You’re just a lightweight! Don’t talk to me that way! I’m the President of the United States! Don’t ever talk to the President that way!”

And he did all that while sitting at an absurdly small desk, blissfully unaware of the wave of ridicule it would inevitably inspire:

Amid the circus, Trump posted an angry tweet railing against Twitter trends.

“Twitter is sending out totally false ‘Trends’ that have absolutely nothing to do with what is really trending in the world. They make it up, and only negative ‘stuff,’” he seethed.

Who’s to say what prompted this seemingly random tirade? We’ll never know, but maybe it’s worth noting that it came after “#DiaperDon,” apparently inspired by the diminutive desk, started trending.
