Donald Trump had to be tied to his Oval Office chair Wednesday night as he gave an address to the country. He read in a dull monotone with as much enthusiasm as a failing English student reading a book report. For the POTUS, sickness is not external, it is weakness.
His suggestions were illogical. Cut off travel to and from Europe, but let Great Britain and South Korea fly into the U.S. Give huge corporations money. He has been keeping watch over the stock market like a new mother and tossing the people a few breadcrumbs, like paycheck relief in the form of the payroll tax cut — borrowing the money from Social Security and other support nets.
Of course, it was time to Twitter bomb the most powerful woman in the U.S. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). Like one of the mean girls, POTUS refuses to speak with her. Instead, he sends over his Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin:
‘“Nancy Pelosi all of a sudden doesn’t like the payroll tax cut, but when Obama proposed it she thought it was a brilliant thing that all of the working families would benefit from because if you get a paycheck, you’re going to take home more money.”@kilmeade @foxandfriends’
