‘Befuddled reality TV host’ Trump nursing ‘sad obsession’ against Obama as COVID-19 deaths approach grim milestone: Morning Joe

MSNBC’ Joe Scarborough thrashed President Donald Trump for nursing petty grievances and engaging in magical thinking instead of marshaling U.S. resources to fight the coronavirus pandemic.

The “Morning Joe” host read from his Washington Post column published Wednesday evening in which he lamented the president never gave Americans a chance to save thousands of lives and trillions of dollars.

“You know, the most damning element of his response may well be his stubborn refusal to marshal the resources of the U.S. government in the face of a once-in-a-century challenge, to create a Manhattan Project for our time,” Scarborough said. “To create a Manhattan Project for the veterans and the seniors who have given so much to this country and who were dying alone in nursing homes, in VA hospitals, and in retirement communities across Florida, Arizona and the country.”

“Instead, this befuddled former reality TV host continues to spend his time spinning wild conspiracy theories, attacking the state of Michigan, attacking the state of Nevada and continuing his sad obsession — and it is so sad — with former President Barack Obama,” he added. “The U.S. death toll is now rising toward 100,000 lost souls. [White House adviser] Peter Navarro was on to something at the end of January, and despite the fact that we’re approaching that bleak, bleak number, the only thing exceptional about this American president’s management of the crisis has been his gross negligence. He has allowed so many people to die in a country that remains home to the best and the brightest innovators this world has ever known.”

On Wednesday, a U.S. District Judge tore into pro-Trump activists Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman, who have been charged with crimes for sending intimidating robocalls to discourage people from voting in Ohio and Michigan.

The calls falsely told voters that casting a mail-in ballot would help debt collectors locate them and police enforce outstanding warrants against them. Wohl and Burkman, who have been implicated in a number of previous half-baked schemes, face up to 18 and a half years in prison for telecommunications fraud and bribery.

Trump ‘will not implement those policies’ he promises: Ex-Homeland Security official tells evangelical voters

Published

Former Homeland Security official Elizabeth Neumann notoriously resigned from her position after she witnessed political decisions being made about the COVID-19 pandemic over scientific ones.

After the announcement that former official Miles Taylor was the "Anonymous" author behind the New York Times op-ed and the book attacking President Donald Trump, Neumann said she wasn't aware that "Anonymous" was Taylor. However, she said that the one thing they both have in common is their mutual focus on "the truth" that she said the American people deserve to know.

Like Taylor, Neumann explained that the "adults" in the White House are largely gone and that there are few left willing to stand up to Trump.
