Remember when Donald Trump used to criticize his predecessor for playing golf? As Joe Scarborough said on his MSNBC show Morning Joe this morning “Have you seen (President Barack) Obama’s swing? He didn’t play enough golf!” News reports indicate that Trump spent one out of three days playing golf at one of his resorts. It gets worse.
Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) offered to support Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s request to move the CIA from under Homeland Security to under the Treasury with one caveat. Make the president’s travel expenses transparent. Mnuchin said the equivalent of “Never mind.” The tab for golf carts was over half a million dollars this year.
Trump sent his entire top military people over to brief the House and the Senate on why killing Iran’s second to the top man General Qassem Soleimani was necessary at that moment. Senator Mike Lee walked away from the briefing irate, according to The Washington Post:
‘I FIND THIS INSULTING AND DEMEANING … TO THE OFFICE THAT EACH OF THE 100 SENATORS IN THIS BUILDING HAPPENS TO HOLD. I FIND IT INSULTING AND DEMEANING TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES.’
That left Trump with three strikes and no balls. So, he decided to play the victim. In his first tweet, he thanked Representative Elise Stefanik (R-NY) for bolstering his wounded ego:
‘THANK YOU ELISE!’
Then, as Senator Angus King ((I-MN) commented about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Morning Joe about trying to hold an impeachment trial with no evidence:
‘SEE NO EVIL, HEAR NO EVIL, TAKE NO EVIDENCE.’
As a result, Trump played his pity party card:
After that, he tweeted, he projecting “crazy” onto Speaker Nancy Pelosi calling her “Crazy Nancy Pelosi:”
‘HOPE THAT ALL HOUSE REPUBLICANS WILL VOTE AGAINST CRAZY NANCY PELOSI’S WAR POWERS RESOLUTION. ALSO, REMEMBER HER “SPEED & RUSH” IN GETTING THE IMPEACHMENT HOAX VOTED ON & DONE. WELL, SHE NEVER SENT THE ARTICLES TO THE SENATE. JUST ANOTHER DEMOCRAT FRAUD. PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT!’
This tweet was about the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals lifting its block on $3.6 million, moved from the military to the border wall fund:
‘BREAKING NEWS: THE FIFTH CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS JUST REVERSED A LOWER COURT DECISION & GAVE US THE GO AHEAD TO BUILD ONE OF THE LARGEST SECTIONS OF THE DESPERATELY NEEDED SOUTHERN BORDER WALL, FOUR BILLION DOLLARS. ENTIRE WALL IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION OR GETTING READY TO START!’
Twitter world went after the president. Check out some of our favorite responses below:
