This evening, at the end of a very bad day for him and his criminal scandals, Donald Trump abruptly disappeared from the Christmas tree ceremony without explanation. The press pool traveling with him was left out in the cold, literally, and several of the reporters involved began tweeting about the sheer weirdness of Trump’s vanishing act. Now it’s gotten even weirder.
Justin Sink, the White House correspondent for Bloomberg, ultimately posted this tweet: “After 15 minutes held at the site of the Christmas tree lighting with no explanation of why the motorcade left without us, we’re back at the white house and they’ve called a lid, meaning we won’t see the president again today.” So where does this leave us?
If Donald Trump’s decision to ditch the press pool at the Christmas tree lighting ceremony was something that he had planned out in advance, even by a relatively brief amount of time, his staff would have had time to come up with a cover story. It might not have been a particularly believable story, but it would have at least been something.
Instead, Trump’s handlers have resorted to providing the media with no statement at all about why he ditched them and bailed. That kind of lack of an explanation only serves to make the scandal even bigger, and Trump’s PR staff knows this. Did Trump run off and throw a tantrum? Is he physically ill? Is he fleeing to Moscow? We’re kidding about that last one; he won’t flee to Moscow until at least next week. Whatever happened here, Trump’s people have nothing.
