At this time, a global pandemic has seized the country and killed more than 126,000 people, unemployment is at its highest rate since the Great Depression, and civil unrest is at its highest since the 1960s following the death of George Floyd at the hands of police. The president has his hands full and certainly seems to be prioritizing the lives of the American people above all smaller concerns.
Just kidding. He’s focused on statues of slaveowners.

Trump is trying desperately to rekindle the old us versus them magic that so captivating his rabid fan base at rallies in 2016, but a failed rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Trump’s first in months since the shutdowns due to COVID-19, was an absolute bust with barely a third of the arena actually full. People seem to be growing weary with Trump’s insistence that everything and everyone are unfair to him while 126,000 families grieve loved ones.
Trump doesn’t yet understand that holding these rallies that risk people’s lives, going on Sean Hannity to talk nonsense instead of policy, and his failure to properly respond at a time of great division and suffering by the people he’s supposed to represent isn’t helping him in the polls. He can insist all he likes that the polls are rigged and unfair to him, and he does so constantly, but it’s clear that Biden is outracing him and for good reason.
Twitter wasn’t up for Trump’s Wild West-style wanted poster on Friday. See some of their comments below:
