Right after voting in Florida on Saturday morning, Donald Trump hopped on Twitter to complain that the press is trying to scare the public by reporting about the frighteningly large jump in COVID-19 infections across the country, with the president mocking it as “CASES, CASES, CASES.”
With medical authorities worrying that a massive wave of COVID-19 infections is headed the country’s way with winter coming, the president pushed back on Twitter.
“The Fake News is talking about CASES, CASES, CASES. This includes many low risk people. Media is doing everything possible to create fear prior to November 3rd. The Cases are up because TESTING is way up, by far the most, and best, in the world. Mortality rate is DOWN 85% plus!,” he wrote.
Earlier this week the death toll in the U.S. broke the 220,000 barrier for the pandemic that the president has said would disappear by summer.

Trump loses another election court challenge
The US state of Pennsylvania's supreme court dismissed another legal challenge to the election by supporters of President Donald Trump on Saturday, further reducing his already near-impossible odds of overturning the results.
A Republican lawsuit had sought to invalidate mail-in ballots in the battleground state that President-elect Joe Biden won by about 81,000 votes -- or to throw out all votes and allow the state's legislature to decide the winner.
The court dismissed both claims in a unanimous decision, calling the second one an "extraordinary proposition that the court disenfranchise all 6.9 million Pennsylvanians who voted in the general election."
Melania Trump’s memoir plans set off an avalanche of brutal title suggestions
News from Page Six that first lady Melania Trump is planning on writing a memoir about her time in the White House set off an all too predictable flood of title suggestions on social media that were equal parts brutal and hilarious.
According to Page Six, the first lady is planning to write the book and that the income from it will solely be hers allowing her to cash in the past four years like the rest of the Trump family.
