Trump’s attempt to blame his coronavirus failures on nation’s governors blows up spectacularly in his face

Published

on

Sunday morning Donald Trump lashed out at Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker and other unnamed governors for blaming his administration for bungling the federal response to the coronavirus pandemic, saying they are exposing their own “shortcomings.”

Along the way, the president also accused the media of being in on a conspiracy to blame him.

Taking to Twitter, the president wrote, “. @JBPritzker, Governor of Illinois, and a very small group of certain other Governors, together with Fake News @CNN  and Concast (MSDNC), shouldn’t be blaming the Federal Government for their own shortcomings. We are there to back you up should you fail, and always will be!”

Needless to say, many commenters noted that the health crisis is a 50-state problem and his job is to lead the country — although he doesn’t seem to be aware of that fact.

Team Trump ‘running for cover’ after attempt to crack down on protests results in ‘humiliation’: conservative columnist

Published

on

Writing in the Washington Post this Wednesday, columnist Jennifer Rubin writes that the "tear-gassing of peaceful protesters, the debasement of St. John’s Episcopal Church, the wholly inappropriate participation of the defense secretary and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the goose step across Lafayette Square" were actually President Trump's way of compensating for reports that he retreated to an underground bunker when protesters got close to the White House.

Rubin points to Trump's claim that he went to the bunker for an "inspection." But according to Defense Secretary Mark Esper, he had no idea where Trump and the rest of his entourage were going.
