Trump proves how terrified he is after Joe Biden grabs a major endorsement

President Donald Trump has nothing on his public schedule Monday, until a 12:45 PM lunch with the Vice President, and then a 3:45 PM welcome to the White House meet and greet with NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball National Champions, the Baylor Lady Bears.

In other words, a lot of executive time for a Monday.

Top aides would be wise to keep the president busy, but they have not, leading Trump to wallow in his terror: Joe Biden is running for president.

Here’s how Trump is handling it today, as the former Vice President hits the campaign trail with a stop in Pennsylvania after picking up an endorsement from the nation’s largest fire fighters union.

“I’ll never get the support of Dues Crazy union leadership, those people who rip-off their membership with ridiculously high dues, medical and other expenses while being paid a fortune,” Trump insisted, glowering in self-pity. “But the members love Trump. They look at our record economy, tax & reg cuts, military etc. WIN!”

It’s unclear what “WIN!” Trump thinks he just got.

23 minutes and several tweets later, clearly with nothing to do but tweet, Trump doubled-down:

In between his road-test of “Dues Crazy” vs. “Dues Sucking,” Trump took swipes at “Sleepy Joe” Biden.

Trump insists he’s “getting the job done” – clearly the job at hand is tweeting – and he’s getting it done “big time!” – because nothing says “presidential success” like a plethora of executive time tweets.

The Pennsylvania steel industry, in fact, is not “thriving.”

Just Google “Pennsylvania Steel Industry” and you’ll see news reports like, “Air pollution problems from steel industry prompt two lawsuits,” or, “After a year of tariffs, steel industry deals with ‘chaos fatigue.'”

Those would be Trump’s tariffs, which are “killing” the U.S. steel industry.

Meanwhile, Trump’s terror continues.

Late Monday morning, his eighth tweet of the day was a lie about Special Counsel Robert Mueller, or more specifically, a lie claiming Democrats are ignoring the Mueller report, which is quite false.

Never-before-seen tax docs show Trump’s businesses made themselves seem more profitable to lenders and less profitable to tax officials

Published

on

Documents obtained by ProPublica show stark differences in how Donald Trump’s businesses reported some expenses, profits and occupancy figures for two Manhattan buildings, giving a lender different figures than they provided to New York City tax authorities. The discrepancies made the buildings appear more profitable to the lender — and less profitable to the officials who set the buildings’ property tax.

For instance, Trump told the lender that he took in twice as much rent from one building as he reported to tax authorities during the same year, 2017. He also gave conflicting occupancy figures for one of his signature skyscrapers, located at 40 Wall Street.

Published

The president also claimed "rumor has it" CNN's president, Jeff Zucker, "will be resigining momentarily?" (The typo is Mr. Trump's.)

Now that we have found out that @CNN is a virtual fraud, rumor has it that Jeff Zucker will be resigining momentarily?

On Sunday's finale, Kendall Roy (Jeremy Strong), who spent most of this season looking like a whipped puppy, finally stuck it to his old man, Logan Roy (Brian Cox), throwing the patriarch under the bus during a live press conference, during which Kendall was supposed to offer himself up as the fall guy for Waystar Royco's criminal behavior. It was a moment of Kendall showing spine and competence, and understandably, audiences cheered him on.
