‘Not supposed to be that way!’ Bitter Trump whines about Senate possibly letting John Bolton testify

Published

President Donald Trump on Monday whined about the Senate potentially letting former national security adviser John Bolton testify during his impeachment trial.

“They didn’t want John Bolton and others in the House,” the president wrote on Twitter. “They were in too much of a rush. Now they want them all in the Senate. Not supposed to be that way!”

In reality, the House impeachment investigators tried to get Bolton to testify during their inquiry, but he refused to appear unless he got legal clearance to do so. However, Bolton has now offered to testify before the Senate even though he did not comply with House requests to do the same.

Trump followed up this attack with another angry tweet targeting Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

“Cryin’ Chuck Schumer is now asking for ‘fairness’, when he and the Democrat House members worked together to make sure I got ZERO fairness in the House,” Trump wrote. “So, what else is new?”

The House of Representatives did actually give Trump the opportunity to have legal representation at House hearings, but he declined because he did not want to give the impeachment process any legitimacy.

According to KCRA, the first community-spread infection has occurred in California.

A Solano County patient “had no known exposure to the virus through travel or close contact with a known infected individual,” said the California Department of Public Health.

‘He has no clue’: Internet slams Trump’s ‘breathtaking’ incoherence at coronavirus press conference

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump gave a barely intelligible press conference on the coronavirus outbreak, during which he claimed he saved America by shutting down flights, appointed Vice President Mike Pence to lead a coronavirus task force despite having few qualifications to do so, suggesting his public health budget cuts are no big deal because he can just hire more doctors later, and insisting that it was Democrats, rather than the epidemic, that tanked the stock market this week.

Trump said coronavirus won’t spread — his scientists said the opposite right in front of him: Congresswoman

Published

on

Rep. Donna Shalala (D-FL) blasted President Donald Trump after his press conference Wednesday because he contradicted his own scientists on the coronavirus.

During an MSNBC discussion after the Q&A, the Congresswoman explained that it only confuses Americans more.

"He's not doing very well on the coronavirus," she said. "Because the test of leadership is not talking about something you know very little about and he just confused the American people about whether this virus is going to spread. All the scientists said it is going to spread and the president gave the opposite impression. And presidents have to know that when they're in a situation like this with complicated science, they put the scientists, physicians in front of them, preferably, by the way, in white coats, and let them reassure the American people."
