Donald Trump wants to win the 2020 presidential election so much he can almost taste it. Chances are that he would not win unless he manipulated the facts, the goals, and/or the people. Even aa Americans heard from Governor Mayor Cuomo during his daily briefing. that wearing their masks is “officially cool.” People should want to make masks a part of their daily life.
Then, Cuomo came up with a well-worn idea. He spoke about the overdue need to rebuild the nation’s infrastructure, not just talk about it. People need jobs. They need action. Is that how Trump is operating? Apparently not.
The president was in the midst of grabbing the credit already directed to “most governors.” He blamed the governors for not having “their own stockpiles,” and tried to dump his own faults and failures upon them:
‘We made most Governors look very good, even great, by getting them the Ventilators, unlimited Testing, and supplies, all of which they should have had in their own stockpiles. So they look great, and I just keep rolling along, doing great things and getting Fake Lamestream News!’
Then, Trump moved to the “fake lamestream news!” and to the governors looking “great” as POTUS just keeps “rolling along, doing great things:”
Trump spoke about his original acts against China that were “the right decisions” — yet one more time:
‘….One person lost to this invisible virus is too much, it should have been stopped at its source, China, but I acted very quickly, and made the right decisions. Many of the current political complainers thought, at the time, that I was moving far to fast, like Crazy Nancy!’
On top of that, he claimed that “1 1/2 to 2 million” would have died during the coronavirus pandemic “as opposed to the 100,000 plus.” He quipped that one was too many deaths after he asked senior citizens to vote in person and sacrifice themselves on the altar of Trump’s reelection:
‘For all of the political hacks out there, if I hadn’t done my job well, & early, we would have lost 1 1/2 to 2 Million People, as opposed to the 100,000 plus that looks like will be the number. That’s 15 to 20 times more than we will lose. I shut down entry from China very early!’
Then, the man whose people told us we “overreacted a little bit” to the coronavirus climbs all over his self-congratulations. Some farmer plowed one of his fields to write in giant lettering “TRUMP 2020:”
‘How brilliant are our FARMERS? Thank you @lgutwein99_31, real talent! #MAGA’

We would be more impressed if he had tractor-written Herman Melville’s entire book of Moby Dick, but two words were enough to impress Trump.
Trump stole the credit from state governors and blamed others for his own errors in judgment. Still he was willing to let people die to further his reelection campaign, which made Americans furious. Check out some of our favorite responses below:
