President Donald Trump seems to be deeply upset that Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden received the endorsement of the International Association of Fire Fighters this week.
In a Twitter frenzy early on Wednesday morning, the president retweeted dozens of messages from his supporters insisting that real firefighters actually love him and are simply being thwarted by corrupt union bosses.
“This firefighter won’t be voting for creepy,” read one message promoted by the president.
“The rank and file know who has their back and remember no one knows who you vote for!” read another message.
Trump’s diatribe against the firefighters’ union began on around 6 a.m. ET on Wednesday, when he complained that “I’ve done more for Firefighters than this dues sucking union will ever do, and I get paid ZERO!”

It was after this that the president began frantically retweeting messages from suppporters claiming that “real” fire fighters love him. As of this writing, Trump has retweeted 60 different messages about how much firefighters love him in the half hour since his original tweet.
