‘TRAITORS!’: Trump lashes out at Comey, the NYT’s Paul Krugman and labor leaders in Twitter meltdown

Published

on

Donald Trump kicked off his Labor Day early Monday morning with an attack on the New York Times’ Paul Krugman, ranting that the Nobel Prize-winning economist is giving American’s bad stock market advice — without providing any evidence or context.

He then followed that up with a series of tweets attacking a union leader and former FBI Director James Comey — calling him a “traitor.”

Moments after quoting a Fox News personality — indicating he is spending the morning watching the conservative cable news network — the president launched his assault on the columnist and others.

“Since my election, many trillions of dollars of worth has been created for our Country, and the Stock Market is up over 50%. If you followed the advice of the Failing New York Times columnist, Paul Krugman, you’d be doing VERY poorly – you’d be angry and hurt. He never got it!” Trump tweeted.

He then attacked union leader AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka’s appearance on Fox News before returning to — once again — snap at Comey by quoting Fox host Lou Dobbs.

You can see the president’s manic flurry of tweets below:

Speaking from what appeared to be his backyard, the "Real Time" host noted that Americans tend to rally around their leaders in times of crisis but that this president is not deserving of support.

"Was the current crisis preventable? " he asked. "Not all of it, of course. But we could have done what South Korea did, their nightmare started the day our's did. But while Trump shut up experts, happy-talked and lied his ass off, South Korea put a strong testing program into place, tracing people, and today they have twenty-0ne times the cases and thirty times fewer deaths."

Here’s what Wall Street doesn’t want you to know about its grip on emergency rooms

Published

Doctor Ling Min is the first emergency room doctor to be fired for going public with his concerns about poor hospital emergency room safety practices and shortages of medical supplies and protective gear for health workers.

He won’t be the last.

Like many hospitals in the US, PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center in Bellingham Washington, where Ling Min worked for the past 17 years as an emergency room doctor, has outsourced the management and staffing of its emergency room. So, Min works on-site at the hospital’s ER, but he is employed by a physician staffing firm that runs the ER. These staffing firms are often behind the surprise medical bills for ER services that patients receive after their insurance company has paid the hospital and doctors, but not the excessive out-of-network charges billed by these outside staffing firms.
