This week, heavily armed protesters stormed the Michigan state capitol building in protest of the state’s stay-at-home order, which, for now, is slated to expire on May 15 and is meant to stem the spread of the Coronavirus. This Friday morning, President Donald Trump got on Twitter and sided with the belligerent protesters over the duly elected governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer, who is simply trying to keep the disease that has already claimed thousands and thousands of lives in her state from taking many more. Trump thereby proved himself yet again to be more committed to nauseating political-speak than protecting the lives of Americans, it seems.

He tweeted:

‘The Governor of Michigan should give a little, and put out the fire. These are very good people, but they are angry. They want their lives back again, safely! See them, talk to them, make a deal.’

“Very good people”? Is that why they felt the need to storm a state capitol building, screaming and brandishing high-powered weapons? Were they trying to communicate how “very good” they are?

This Friday, Trump, sounding like he has absolutely no idea what he’s talking about but is trying to sound competent and failing miserably, called the claim a “false talking point” that more Coronavirus testing is needed for the U.S. It’s not fake news! It’s a basic fact, which Trump seems to be trying to wish out of existence — while whining that New York Senator Chuck Schumer is supposedly a “totally overrated loser.”

On April 23, barely a week ago, Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes of Health said:

‘We need to significantly ramp up not only the number of tests, but the capacity to perform them. … I am not overly confident right now at all that we have what it takes to do that.’

And within a couple of days, he added that the U.S. needed to double its Coronavirus testing capacity. But sure, Trump, the U.S. is doing great — whatever you say! Not.
