WATCH: Mike Bloomberg spokesperson trolls Trump over his childish ‘Romper Room’ tweets

Published

on

Appearing on CNN with host Jim Sciutto, Tim O’Brien — Donald Trump biographer and senior adviser to former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg — said Donald Trump has become obsessed with the billionaire media mogul to the point that he spends two-thirds of his three-hour working day attacking him on Twitter.

And Bloomberg and his people are perfectly fine with that.

Speaking with O’Brien, the CNN host asked, “As you’re aware, Michael Bloomberg has attracted the attention of President Trump and you’ve seen that in tweets of course, Michael Bloomberg has swung back. Is that public feud good for the Democrats in this race?”

“We’re not going to — we’re not feuding with other Democrats. we have not had a bad word to say about any of our competitors in the Democratic field.”

Needling the president’s reported abbreviated working hours, O’Brien, added, “Donald Trump, as you know, begins his workday at 11:00 a.m. and during the three hours he works, he appears to spend about two hours of it tweeting at Mike Bloomberg and thinking about Mike Bloomberg”

‘We’re more than happy to go toe to toe and tweet for tweet with Donald Trump if he wants to turn the Oval Office into Romper Room,” O’Brien replied. “But we’re also focused on the policy issues that voters care about.”

There’s no respite from Trump’s vindictiveness and foolishness

Published

on

As we know, even in the midst of a national emergency, Donald Trump could find time and bandwidth to continue his retribution campaign.

He dismissed Michael Atkinson, the inspector general for the intelligence agencies, for doing “a terrible job,” satisfying his own thirst for vengeance for anyone who actually adhered to law and practice over blind loyalty to Trump himself. Indeed, asked about it the next day, Trump underscored his action by saying, Atkinson “was no Trump supporter, that I can tell you.”

It was an act that we once would have labeled corruption, by Democrats and Republicans – that is using the office for personal purposes – if Congress and too many Americans had not since become inured by so many like instances.

This is how Taiwan and South Korea bucked the global lockdown trend

Published

on

As the coronavirus pandemic sparks global lockdowns, life has continued comparatively unhindered in places like Taiwan, South Korea and Hong Kong after their governments and citizens took decisive early action against the unfolding crisis.

At first glance Taiwan looks like an ideal candidate for the coronavirus. The island of 23 million lies just 180 kilometres (110 miles) off mainland China.

Yet nearly 100 days in, Taiwan has just 376 confirmed cases and five fatalities while restaurants, bars, schools, universities and offices remain open.

The government of President Tsai Ing-wen, whose deputy is an epidemiologist, made tough decisions while the crisis was nascent to stave off the kind of pain now convulsing much of the rest of the world.

Republican ex-lawmaker with coronavirus scolds Wisconsin GOP for forcing voters to risk their health

Published

On CNN Tuesday, former Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA), who is himself dealing with a bout of COVID-19, chastised the Wisconsin GOP for doing everything in their power to block the state elections from being moved — and forcing many voters to stand in line and risk exposure to the virus to cast their ballot.

"I have to tell you, here in Pennsylvania we have a Democratic governor and Republican legislature," Dent told host Don Lemon. "They postponed the election here from April 28 until June 2. Without any controversy. Everybody agreed it was the right thing to do and they moved on. I'm surprised Wisconsin took this risk, knowing they don't have to."
