Amidst the Coronavirus pandemic, which has killed over 55,000 Americans as of this Monday morning, President Donald Trump appears to believe that one of the biggest threats to the U.S. is — rather than the virus killing thousands of Americans a day — the media. His refusal to accept even the slightest questioning and insistence upon taking even the slightest deviation from the norm as some kind of freakish traitorous behavior led to yet another unhinged rant this Monday morning in which he pompously declared the media to be the “enemy of the people,” which constitutes threatening language.
‘There has never been, in the history of our Country, a more vicious or hostile Lamestream Media than there is right now, even in the midst of a National Emergency, the Invisible Enemy!.. FAKE NEWS, THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!’
He’s spiraling and spiraling. Why haven’t officials in the Cabinet invoked the 25th Amendment yet? That Constitutional amendment provides the opportunity to remove a president if they’re incapacitated and can’t fulfill their job responsibilities. Does Trump’s dangerous self-obsession count as incapacitation yet?
Trump’s egomania has reached the height that he has convinced himself that no other president in the entire hundreds-of-years-long history of the U.S. has faced the kind of scrutiny that he does. As should entirely go without saying, that’s ludicrous. Tens of thousands of Americans are dead after Trump waited for weeks on end before acting decisively against the Coronavirus. Are the media supposed to just look the other way?

Our entire country is suffering, millions are out of work, healthcare workers are risking their lives, almost a million people have caught the #COVID19 virus & 55,000+ have died from it. We need leadership, encouragement, stability, and facts, not this daily nonsense and denial! https://t.co/IybXKn5hQ8

You know what the enemy of the people is? A failed president who so badly mismanages a pandemic that over 50,000 Americans die from it. https://t.co/XfMpqnr0Ut

Someone is upset this morning that he has to actually look like he's doing work right now instead of what he wants to do: Golf!
It's been almost 4 full months now & spent 2 weeks finally at least doing the bare minimum & he is now upset we aren't giving him a ticker tape parade https://t.co/PCmivuphU6

We've reached the medley portion of the show, where we only get the chorus of some of the older hits. https://t.co/tGrdBvsuq0
