President Donald Trump on Tuesday threw a temper tantrum at Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer shortly after she criticized him during an interview on MSNBC.

“Failing Michigan Governor must work harder and be much more proactive,” Trump wrote on Twitter within minutes of the interview airing. “We are pushing her to get the job done. I stand with Michigan!”

During the interview, the Democratic governor faulted the Trump administration for being slow to respond to the virus, which the president just one week ago suggested was no worse than the seasonal flu.

“As we know, the federal government hasn’t been prepared,” Whitmer said during her interview. “We on the state level, I think, are getting aggressive.”

Whitmer also slammed Trump for telling governors that they should try buying their own equipment first before looking to the federal government to assist them.

“To hear the leader of the federal government tell us to work around the federal government because it’s too slow — it’s kind of mind-boggling,” she said.

Biden earned a record 80 million votes, with ballots still being counted, and the president reacted to that news Thursday by insisting his loss was impossible.

"Just saw the vote tabulations," Trump tweeted. "There is NO WAY Biden got 80,000,000 votes!!! This was a 100% RIGGED ELECTION."

Twitter immediately slapped a disclaimer on his unfounded claims, which have been rejected over and over by courts and were disputed by the Homeland Security official who oversaw election security -- until the president fired him.

Trump will soon be a ‘dumpy 74-year-old wheeling around the golf course’ while awaiting ‘his next cheeseburger’: columnist

Published

Daily Beast columnist Margaret Carlson on Thursday published a brutal opinion piece in which she danced on President Donald Trump's political grave and relished the thought of his fading into irrelevancy.

In her column, Carlson acknowledged many liberals' fears that Trump will never leave the national spotlight, but she said the soon-to-be-ex-president is more likely to be treated more like a washed-up celebrity that a political icon.

"To those worried we will never rid ourselves of Trump, watch as he shrinks before our very eyes in a Washington minute from leader of the free world to a broken-down real estate developer up to his ears in debt," she wrote. "On Monday, Trump was just another dumpy 74-year-old man wheeling around the golf course in a motorized cart wondering how long it would be until his next cheeseburger."
