After a report on Friday that the Libertarian Koch brother billionaires turned down a meeting with Donald Trump eliminating the opportunity for him to grovel for the kind of big money he said corrupted all other politicians except him (of course), Donald Trump reacted exactly as you would expect the petulant 70-year-old emotionally challenged narcissistic to react.
He lied about it (which, by the way, is the reason he calls everybody else a liar. He projects — but I digress).
Much like after Trump cried and whined like a five-year-old girl about not earning the endorsement of Ted Cruz after he smeared Cruz’s wife and family, where he afterwards said that he wouldn’t accept Cruz’s endorsement even if he offered it, Trump responded to the snubbing by the Koch brothers by claiming it was he who turned down the meeting and that he didn’t want their money anyway.
I turned down a meeting with Charles and David Koch. Much better for them to meet with the puppets of politics, they will do much better!

This is a sleazy common tactic used by Trump in his “Art of the Deal” morals and truth be damned, world.
The tactic of protecting his massive, yet thin-skinned ego has gotten the Cheeto-faced bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor in trouble before.
Trump faces a NY Supreme Court lawsuit from former RNC spokeswoman Cheri Jacobus who Trump tried to hire to be one of his paid surrogates. After Jacobus rejected his offer, Trump used his New York values thuggish mob tactics and Corey Lewandowski to publicly smear Jacobus by claiming that she had begged Trump for a job and was turned down. That was a complete and utter lie which Jacobus proved.
Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) is a horrible mental condition. The thing about it is that it grips the affected, forcing him to protect and defend his ego at all costs, which is why Ted Cruz, who has has been out of the race for two months, must still be attacked, even at the sake of “party unity” and possibly the election itself.
The survival of Trump’s ego is what matters.
