Geraldo Rivera suggested that the coronavirus vaccine be named after President Donald Trump to make him feel better about losing the presidential election and Twitter users quickly fired back.

During an appearance on Fox & Friends, Rivera proposed a wild idea of naming the coronavirus vaccine “The Trump.” He even went a step further to offer dialogue examples of how that suggestion would work. According to Rivera, naming the vaccine after Trump could be a way to “honor” following his election loss.

“I had an idea, with the world so divided and everybody telling him he has to give up and time to leave and time to transition and all the rest of it, why not name the vaccine ‘The Trump’? Make it — ‘have you gotten your Trump yet?’ It would be a nice gesture to him, and years from now it would become kind of a generic name,” Rivera said. “‘Have you got your Trump yet? I got my Trump, I’m fine.’ I wished we could honor him in that way. Because he’s definitely the prime architect of this Operation Warp Speed and but for him we’d still be waiting, you know, into the grim winter these amazing, miraculous breakthroughs.”

Unfortunately for Rivera, many Twitter users were not in agreement with his suggestion. Rivera faced a flood of critical tweets from those with deeply opposing views regarding Trump’s handling of the coronavirus outbreak. In fact, many took the moment as an opportunity to remind Rivera of all the racist nicknames he gave the virus as he offended so many others.

It also opened the door for Twitter users to compile a list of other things that should be named after Trump, like cemeteries commemorating the lives lost as a result of Trump’s recklessness. Others suggested naming the virus, itself, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) has. According to the top-ranking Democrat, the virus “is, in fact, the Trump virus” based on his lacking leadership and handling of the pandemic.

‘Trump endangered America’s democracy’: President’s delusion broken down in brutal WaPo analysis

Published

on

President Donald Trump's refusal to accept the fact that he lost the 2020 presidential election was the focus of a Washington Post deep-dive published online Saturday night.

The story, by Philip Rucker, Ashley Parker, Josh Dawsey and Amy Gardner, was titled, "20 days of fantasy and failure: Inside Trump’s quest to overturn the election."

"The facts were indisputable: President Trump had lost. But Trump refused to see it that way," the newspaper reported. "Sequestered in the White House and brooding out of public view after his election defeat, rageful and at times delirious in a torrent of private conversations, Trump was, in the telling of one close adviser, like 'Mad King George, muttering, ‘I won. I won. I won.'’"

Female kicker makes college American football breakthrough

Published

Vanderbilt University kicker Sarah Fuller made collegiate American football history Saturday as the first woman to play in a "Power Five" contest in the Commodores' 41-0 loss to Missouri.

Fuller, goalkeeper for the school's Southeastern Conference champion women's soccer squad, was given the chance to play on the gridiron after Covid-19 testing left Vanderbilt without a kicker.

"I was really excited to step out on the field and do my thing," Fuller said.

Because Vanderbilt's offensive unit sputtered, her contribution was limited to a single play -- the second-half kickoff. She punched the ball to the Missouri 35-yard line, a tricky low offering compared to the usual deeper kicks, where the Tigers fell upon it.

Published

A Republican congressman from Pennsylvania has cast doubt on his own legitimacy to serve in Congress with his failed lawsuit attempting to overturn the 2020 election results.

Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA) attempted to have the courts block certification of the 2020 election results, but his effort was rejected by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Saturday.

"The PA Supreme Court dismisses the case brought by U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly that sought to overturn last year’s law creating no-excuse mail voting and to throw out those mail ballots cast in this election," Philadelphia Inquirer correspondent Jonathan Lai reported Saturday. "This is the case the Commonwealth Court had earlier blocked certification in."
