still trying to wrap my head around how we've gone from "anyone who wants a test can get a test" to "we're doing the most tests" to "governors, you're on your own" to "look, nobody really needs a test, now open your state the fuck up or I'll send in my armed and crazy worshipers"
If Trump were your wacky half friend from college you’d find a way for a zoom intervention and involve his relatives because you’d worry that by the time the pandemic is over he’d be posting videos of himself drinking out of the dog’s water bowl. Guy is bananas. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1251918194639548417
For those of us who’ve had a family member with dementia or Alzheimers this is what happens. They ramble on without a point endlessly, repeat yet contradict themselves minutes apart at times, sputter out sentence fragments and totally made up nonsense. They think this is normal.
Coronavirus hit mostly blue states first. It made Trump’s base even more gullible, combative & vulnerable. Propaganda is flowing & he will cannibalize them to re-open early. It’s a good bet his supporters will now die at 2 to 1 ratio over ppl who follow safety & social distancing
Trump cries. Guaranteed. Rage at Haberman & babble a/b Meadows crying confirm it. As did the World Series. It's not for the victims, it's for himself. Anger is his shield when he's cornered & a/b to cry. He attacks reporters & spews lies. Or he leaves. Make him cry & he will quit
This is a hell of an ad from Biden. Absolutely brutal for Trump.
DISINFORMATION ALERT: Today Trump is spreading the dangerous disinformation that new daily coronavirus infections in the U.S. "peaked" on April 4. The truth: the U.S. is on Day 18 of a new-infections *plateau* where *each day* sees 26,000 to 34,000 new infections. Please RETWEET.
Hi, ER Doc here.
Just to be crystal clear we still do NOT have enough COVID tests for our symptomatic patients let alone to test everyone who wants one.
Here is the conclusion of one of the most unhinged and bizarre rants I have ever heard Trump go on. Keep in mind this is a press briefing about a pandemic that is killing over 1,000 Americans each day right now.
Trump is struggling to speak at the coronavirus update. His cadence is slow w/ silent gaps. This is classic for his condition & has been predicted here. His body keeps moving. His gait back to the stage was a stagger. Reports are Hope Hicks & Kush this encourage these disasters
Donald Trump's day so far:
- Plays bizarre propaganda video during #PressBriefing
- MSNBC and CNN pull the plug
- Incoherent meltdown about Nancy Pelosi and Chinatown
- Trump is a fucking disaster
- No wonder Bernie endorsed Biden
- Trump is going to hell
- It's still only 6pm
#PressBriefing Read the CNN chirons ....As Trump lies and Rants ! 😀 Read the chirons...CNN was ready for Trump tonight as he goes after the Media, they’re ready 😀
Why oh! Why! Do his handlers let him go out in this mode?🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️
Amid Trump’s #PressBriefing meltdown, CBS Reporter Paula Reid asked Trump:
“Tens of thousands of Americans are dead… How is this rant supposed to make people feel confident in an unprecedented crisis?”
Trump responds with more egomaniacal ramblings.
CNN should give their chyron writer a raise. #PressBriefing
Trump pretends to have powers he doesn't have (reopen) the country and refuses to exercise those he does have (e.g. ramp up testing). He is a snake oil salesman not a leader.
What do you notice about Trump’s “Council to Reopen America”?
I’ll go first:
—No experts on the economy
—No experts on public health
—Two Trump family members
—No people of color
—One guy who said “The coronavirus is contained pretty close to airtight” in February
Donald Trump's day so far:
- Has profane Easter Sunday meltdown about Fox News
- Brags about his own "Presidential Disaster"
- Announces he spoke with Putin again today
- It's like he's trying to get himself ousted
- Happy Easter, Trump is going to hell!
- It's still only 4:30pm
You... you’re citing declaring a presidential disaster in all 50 states as an indicator of... winning...??
What the fuck?
