Trump spends morning hurling all-caps rage tweets while COVID-19 pandemic spirals out of control

Published

on

In the face a deadly pandemic that continues to spiral out of control, President Donald Trump spent his morning hurling angry all-caps tweets about topics ranging from the news media to former President Barack Obama to the prosecutors who have put several of his allies in jail.

The first Trump tweet concerned the media’s reporting about the coronavirus pandemic, which Trump continues to insist only looks bad because the United States does so much testing.

“For the 1/100th time, the reason we show so many Cases, compared to other countries that haven’t done nearly as well as we have, is that our TESTING is much bigger and better,” the president wrote. “We have tested 40,000,000 people. If we did 20,000,000 instead, Cases would be half, etc. NOT REPORTED!”

Minutes before Trump tweeted about coverage of the pandemic, Fox News displayed a graphic documenting how the United States has suffered both the highest number of cases and highest number of deaths from COVID-19. The graphic also pointed out that the United States recorded more than 62,000 new COVID cases on Wednesday, which was the highest day yet on record.

In addition to Trump’s angry tweets about coronavirus coverage, he also sent out shorter tweets that read “PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT!” and “PROSECUTORIAL MISCONDUCT!”

He also tweeted about a Fox Business segment that accused former President Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden of supposedly “spying” on his campaign.

“Obama and Biden spied on my campaign, AND GOT CAUGHT…BUT NOTHING!” he wrote.

Published

Taking up the executive orders signed by Donald Trump on Saturday, MSNBC "Morning Joe" co-host Joe Scarborough pointed out a big loophole in the president's proposal for a tax cut, saying he is hiding the fact that voters will be on the hook for deferred taxes after the election.

After first pointing out the president's contempt for Americans struggling to make ends meet during the coronavirus pandemic that has crippled the economy.

"It was a huge, gigantic nothingburger when you look through the policies at the end," Scarborough began. "In fact, some of the policies he put forth are going to hurt people, hurt small business owners the most. Again I go back to the payroll tax cuts -- economists, Republicans, Democrats, everybody is opposing this.

Trump isn’t a king — he may be worse

With each passing day, it seems, the Trump administration seems intent on replaying the lead-up to the English Revolution.

This article first appeared in Salon.

Like King James I of England (aka James VI of Scotland), Trump believes that he, to quote James' tract of 1598, "The True Law of Free Monarchies," "is above the law," accountable only to God. He asserted in a July, 2019 speech that Article II of the Constitution means "I have to the right to do whatever I want as president." Like James' son, Charles I, who ruled England for 11 years without a parliament, Trump is increasingly governing through executive orders rather than making laws with the House and Senate.

The United States now has more than 5 million novel coronavirus infections -- and President Donald Trump is still insisting, as he has for months, that the situation is totally under control.

CNN on Monday played a damning supercut of Trump's failed predictions about the coronavirus pandemic, starting as far back as January when he told CNBC that "it's one person coming in from China and we have it under control, it's going to be just fine."

"5 million is not just fine," interjected host John Berman. "And it's 5 million more than the close to zero the president promised in March."
