TV-addicted Trump accuses ‘do nothing’ Democrats of ‘squandering time’ after he threatened to shut down government

Published

President Donald Trump accused Democrats of squandering time a day after he threatened to derail congressional legislation if they didn’t end various investigations into his presidency and family business.

Trump ranted against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Wednesday in the Rose Garden, after she accused him of a “coverup,” and the president renewed his attack the following morning on Twitter.

“The Democrats are getting nothing done in Congress,” he complained. “All of their effort is about a Re-Do of the Mueller Report, which didn’t turn out the way they wanted. It is not possible for them to investigate and legislate at the same time.”

“Their heart is not into Infrastructure, lower, drug prices, pre-existing conditions and our great Vets,” Trump continued. “All they are geared up to do, six committees, is squander time, day after day, trying to find anything which will be bad for me. A pure fishing expedition like this never happened before, & it should never happen again!”

“The Democrats have become known as THE DO NOTHING PARTY!” he concluded.

Trump infamously spends about 60 percent of his days in unstructured “executive time” — watching TV, tweeting and calling friends on the phone — and has already golfed at least 83 days this year.

Since 2017, he has been known for his stunts and conspiracy theories intended to discredit the Russia investigation and throw suspicion on anyone who looks into Trump's conduct.

Here’s how a new study implies the Supreme Court has killed 16,000 people since 2012

A new paper published by the National Bureau of Economic Research looked into the effects of the Affordable Care Act's Medicaid expansion to people below 138 percent of the poverty line, which has seen nearly 15 million people enrolled in participating states. The results were encouraging: the mortality rate for near-elderly adults has dropped over 9 percent in the four years for which data is available.

But while this is cause for celebration, The Atlantic staff writer Annie Lowrey offered a darker take on the implications of these numbers:
