Celebrating the 100th day of his presidency by telling a crowd of supporters in another of the many campaign-type rallies what a terrific job he has done, "accomplishing more than any other president in the first 100 days," #president Trump also made one of the most incredible statements yet during a weekend CBS Oval Office interview and apparently opened up the White House guest list to two dictators.

Trump, what can you believe? Absolutely nothing!

Getting frustrated as the CBS reporter pressed him on the question of Obama wiretapping Trump Tower, President Trump was finally asked point blank if he still stood behind those incredible tweets wherein he called former President Obama “sick and bad” in a series of March online rants.

Trump kept saying it was all proven (nothing was proven except that Trump made it all up) and he had his own opinion, finally making the truly bizarre statement, “I don’t stand behind anything [I’ve said.]”

Let me repeat that, the President of the United States, Donald Trump, told CBS reporter John Dickerson on camera that he doesn’t stand behind anything he has said. No equivocation. No limitation on what he was referring to, just the statement that no one should rely on anything he has said, ever!

Trump on history, why a Civil War?

In another weekend interview, President Trump wondered aloud why no one ever asked why there had been a US Civil War. (Just FYI - In the US this is a subject which is discussed endlessly in history classes and thousands of books.) President #Andrew Jackson, who was responsible for attempted genocide of the Cherokee Indian Nation in the infamous Trail of Tears (see below), is one of Trump’s heroes, a slave-holder upon whom the president keeps heaping praise.

Part of President Trump’s history lesson for the nation included the statement that President Andrew Jackson was "really angry that he saw what was happening with regard to the Civil War.” He said, 'There's no reason for this.” Probably not true since former President Jackson died in 1845, 16 years before the US Civil War began in 1861, so it is unlikely that he was angry about the war.

This claim was apparently too much even for President Trump who hours later tried to explain his bizarre statement in more tweets.

Trump on dictators.

Until this weekend we only knew President Trump admired one living demagogic dictator whose political opponents and opposition reporters keep dying. But Russian President Putin now has company as a friend of Donald who Trump admires because President Trump has invited the President of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte to the White House.

President Duterte has bragged about personally killing suspected drug dealers and suspected drug addicts - reminiscent of candidate Trump’s claim he could shoot someone on Fifth Ave.

WARNING: foul language in the following video.

Trump on North Korea’s Kim Jong-un.

Even more bizarre than his invitation to the admitted murderer who heads the Philippine government was President Trump’s statement that he thought North Korean President for Life Kim Jong-un was a “smart cookie,” and went on to praise him for his ability to take over a country at his young age.

President Trump also said he would “be honoured” to meet with Kim Jong-un, which would make him the first US president ever to meet with one of the North Korean hereditary family of dictators. It is widely thought that Jung-un ordered the death of his brother by nerve agent and that he has had members of the military who displeased him killed by anti-aircraft guns.

NOTE: disclaimer -, this reporter is part Cherokee but Jackson’s Indian Removal Act of 1830 resulted in the near destruction of the Native American Cherokee tribe when they were forced to move west of the Mississippi and thousands of men, women, and even children were brutalised to death on the forced march. Numbers are inexact but it is thought that nearly 6,000 of the 16,000 Cherokee who were marched west in 1938 died.

Personally, I don’t know which is worse. Did Trump not know Jackson was a brutal, slave-holding racist or that he knew and still considers him a great president and wonderful role model. #North Korea
