Donald Trump has been trying to take the nation’s mind off of the coronavirus pandemic and the Depression-like economy. People were more interested in other people than in numbers — especially since they are so bad now. How about some good news?
This is not the good news 80,652 Americans have died of coronavirus, 1.37 million have been diagnosed with COVID-19, and 20.5 million jobs were lost, which pulled the unemployment rate up to 14.7 percent.
This is the good news: the president is having a pretend war. Trump raised himself upon his bedecked steed and the expensive leather sounded at his movement — wait! Make that his executive office chair. Then, POTUS pointed at his enemy NBC’s Meet The Pres’s host Chuck Todd and commanded the journalist be fired by Comcast, which owns NBC and MSNBC:
‘He should be FIRED by Concast (sic). If done by a Republican, would be “prosecuted”. @AjitPaiFCC’
‘Though NBC posted a correction on Twitter of its misrepresentation of Barr’s words, as of this writing it had not added so much as a note to the transcript. https://nbcnews.com/meet-the-press/meet-press-may-10-2020-n1204016’
‘A lot of people are rightly angry at @chucktodd for willfully lying about AG Barr’s comments on rule of law — but @JoeNBC also did it days ago. These intentional lies in service of false narratives have gone on for years. Infuriating.’
‘THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE. Sadly, our Lamestream Media is TOTALLY CORRUPT!’
‘Serious question: What is the appropriate remedy or response for the years of fake news being peddled by most of major media? They’ve caused major damage to domestic health and foreign relations. They are continuing the fake news even now. What can be done? What should be done?’
‘Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd should be FIRED by “Concast” (NBC) for this fraud. He kneww exactly what he was doing. Public Aiarwaves – Fake News! @AjitPaiFCC @FCC’
Prior to Trump’s nasty tweets, Hemmingway posted a copy of her tweet asking why did Obama hide FBI “activities from Trump.” She did not need to dubb the FBI “the enemy of the people:”
‘Why Did Obama Tell The FBI To Hide Its Activities From Trump?’
Then, King (as in wearing-no-clothes King Trump) added a special proclamation for “Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week 2020:”
