And that brings us to the thing that truly sets Mr. Trump apart when it comes to blurting out stuff that makes no sense. When Mr. Biden says something crazy, he corrects himself, apologizes for it and makes a joke. Not Donald Trump. After he tweeted the fragment, “Despite all the negative press covfefe” at 12:06 a.m. on May 31, 2017, his press secretary actually tried to claim that it was not a typo. “I think the president and a small group of people knew exactly what he meant," Sean Spicer cryptically assured the White House press corps. If Donald Trump had said something about the attacks in Houston and Michigan, his toadies would have insisted that there actually had been mass shootings there, and he probably would have visited hospitals where these phantom victims were taken so he could brag about the size of the crowd at his rallies and lie about the number who showed up for one of his Democratic rivals. (Yeah, that happened.) At last count from the Washington Post, President Trump has made 12,019 false or misleading claims since he was elected president, and he has admitted approximately none of them.
