‘Wrong!’: Trump launches fresh attack on Fauci over testing numbers

Published

on

President Donald Trump publicly disputed the country’s leading infectious disease expert on Saturday.

On Friday, Dr. Tony Fauci testified before Congress. He was asked why cases were declining in European countries while the United States has seen a surge.

“If you look at what happened in Europe when they shut down or locked down or went to shelter-in-place, however you want to describe it, they really did it to the tune of about 95-plus-percent of the country did that,” Fauci explained.

“When you actually look at what we did, even though we shut down, even though it created a great deal of difficulty, we really functionally shut down only about 50%, in the sense of the totality of the country,” he continued.

Trump, after returning from the golf course, disputed Fauci’s explanation.

“Wrong! We have more cases because we have tested far more than any other country, 60,000,000,” Trump argued.

“If we tested less, there would be less cases,” he falsely claimed. “How did Italy, France & Spain do? Now Europe sadly has flare ups. Most of our governors worked hard & smart. We will come back STRONG!”

Atlanta mayor tears into ‘narcissist’ Trump for ‘blasphemous’ claim he did more for Black America than John Lewis

Published

On CNN Tuesday, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms tore into President Donald Trump for his suggestion in a new interview that he has done "more for Black Americans" than anyone else, during a discussion on the late civil rights leader John Lewis.

"What do you think about when President Trump says he personally has done more for Black Americans than anyone else?" said anchor Alisyn Camerota.

"He's delusional. He's a narcissist and he is delusional," said Bottoms. "The only person that believes that is him. He's done nothing for African-Americans in this country, and to speak that in the same sentence as speaking of John Lewis is almost blasphemous."

‘It’s worse than ever’: White House has someone new to blame for Trump’s downward spiral

Published

on

According to a report from Politico, a substantial number of Republican insiders now see no way for Donald Trump to turn around his re-election campaign before November.

With less than 100 days to go before the election and his polling numbers in free-fall, the president has been getting input from unofficial advisers like former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and ex-House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) who have urged him to use some of the campaign tricks that served him well in 2016 -- but others close to the president say they won't work this time.

‘Fred Trump pulls on his son from beyond the grave’: Reagan daughter explains why Trump may destroy democracy

Published

on

President Donald Trump's father set in motion the emotional pathologies that may ultimately destroy American democracy, according to Ronald Reagan's daughter.

Patti Davis said her father, like any other powerful man, remained a son who longed for his father's approval and lessons in manhood, and she describes in a new column for The Daily Beast how the presidents she's known personally were shaped by their paternal relationships.

"My father was the son of an alcoholic, whose drinking binges often left the family without money to pay bills," Davis wrote. "I have long felt that to understand Ronald Reagan, you have to understand that everything he was and did bounced off the fact that he was the child of an alcoholic. When he became a successful actor, he hired his father to answer his fan mail, wanting to give his father something to occupy himself with so that hopefully he wouldn’t drink. It worked for a while, until it didn’t."
