Angry Donald Trump yells at reporters at the White House following Robert Mueller's testimony (screen grab)

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.

Reporter busts Trump with damning list of times he previously claimed Flynn was guilty

Published

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump decided to issue a full pardon of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who was awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to lying to the FBI in the course of the Russia investigation — despite Flynn's attempt to take back his plea and Attorney General William Barr's efforts to shut down the prosecution.

Although Trump and his supporters for years have painted Flynn as a hero, that was not always the sentiment, however. As BuzzFeed News' Jason Leopold noted in a lengthy Twitter thread, Trump previously was enraged with Flynn's criminal conduct, and publicly declared him a liar.

Nicolle Wallace bashes ‘two-bit criminal’ Trump for ‘skivvy’ tweet pardoning Michael Flynn

Published

Retired Lt. Gen Michael Flynn admitted his guilt to Judge Emmett Sullivan, but President Donald Trump announced that the former director of national intelligence would never see jail time. After issuing a pardon to Flynn the day before Thanksgiving, MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace attacked the manner in which Trump announced the pardon: by tweet.

"Of all the sordid tales of Trump's presidency, this one might take the cake," said Wallace. "We knew this might be coming. We know Donald Trump likes the power to pardon. There's some reporting he's looking at a pardon for lots of other people. I wonder what your sense is about what else Donald Trump has up his sleeve?"

NRA tax filing alleges Wayne LaPierre used the group’s funds for ‘personal benefit and enrichment’: report

Published

on

According to a new IRS tax filing from the National Rifle Association (NRA), current and former executives used the nonprofit group’s money for personal benefit and enrichment, the Washington Post reports.

"The NRA said in the filing that it continues to review the alleged abuse of funds, as the tax-exempt organization curtails services and runs up multimillion-dollar legal bills," the Post's report states. "The assertion of impropriety comes four months after the attorney general of New York state filed a lawsuit accusing NRA chief executive Wayne LaPierre and other top officials of using NRA funds for decades to provide inflated salaries and expense accounts."
