On Sunday, Donald Trump took to Twitter to accuse the media of “going crazy” distorting “so many things,” including his alleged ignorance about nuclear deterrence, his proven ignorance about Crimea and, most intriguingly, “the baby.”
The media is going crazy. They totally distort so many things on purpose. Crimea, nuclear, "the baby" and so much more. Very dishonest!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 7, 2016
While “the baby” presumably refers to the crying infant Trump recently joked about ejecting from a rally, the Republican nominee’s curious use of quotation marks raises other questions. Does Donald Trump think the alleged baby was something else? Or is he suggesting, as Alex Jones has, that the seemingly innocent child was really a globalist plant?
