One minute, Donald Trump’s holding a rare press conference. The next, he’s on an unhinged rant and demanding a meeting with the Black Caucus.

The impromptu press conference began late Thursday afternoon. The president first announced his new pick for labor secretary (a surprisingly well-qualified and experienced Alex Acosta). But things swiftly went downhill from there. After launching into a long litany of lies — Approval ratings up to 55 percent (they’re at 39 percent)! The jobs are coming back! ISIS has “spread like cancer!” Mike Flynn is a “fine person!” — Mein Trumpf opened the floor to questions.

As always, he dodged these questions through lies and attacks. But when April Ryan asked him about his campaign promise to “fix” our inner cities, Donald Trump went off the deep end. First, he told this seasoned reporter, award-winning author, and long-time White House correspondent that she was “very professional and very good.”

Then, when she asked whether he would seek input from the Black Caucus, Donald Trump ordered her to set up a meeting with them, as though she was some kind of secretary or servant. Oh, and did we mention that April Ryan just happens to be black?

April Ryan: Are you going to include the CBC (Congressional Black Caucus) in your conversations with your — your urban agenda, your inner city agenda, as well as…

Donald Trump [interrupts]: Am I going to include who?

Ryan: Are you going to include the Congressional Black Caucus and the Congressional…

Trump [interrupts before she can say “Congressional Hispanic Caucus”]: Well, I would. I tell you what, do you want to set up the meeting? Do you want to set up the meeting?

Ryan: No, no, no, I’m not…

Trump: Are they friends of yours?

Ryan: I’m just a reporter.

Trump: Well, then set up the meeting.

Ryan [pointedly]: I know some of them, but I’m sure they’re watching right now.

Donald Trump then went on to claim that  Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said he couldn’t meet because “it might be bad for me politically.”

“Let’s go set up a meeting. I would love to meet with the Black Caucus. I think it’s great, the Congressional Black Caucus. I think it’s great. I actually thought I had a meeting with Congressman Cummings and he was all excited. And then he said, well, I can’t move, it might be bad for me politically. I can’t have that meeting. “

So…What the heck happened here?

Of course Cummings immediately informed The Baltimore Sun that this was a bald-faced lie. April Ryan also took to Twitter to clarify that she’s a journalist, “not a convener!”

Oh, and guess what?

Donald Trump also reached out to the Black Caucus, but still hasn’t set a time or date.
