Trump Wakes Up & Rockets Into Pre-Dawn ‘Fake Media!’ Meltdown

President Donald Trump continues to adamantly refuse to accept reality. This Saturday morning, he proclaimed on Twitter that television ratings are supposedly “real polls,” unlike the supposedly “fake” polls conducted by the actual professional pollsters. That assertion is ridiculous — presidents are not elected on the basis of how many people were watching them on television, because television viewership does not automatically translate into votes. Trump’s self-obsessed view of the world says otherwise, though — and this Saturday morning, he also ranted about health care and brazenly ignored the fact that his administration has no apparent plan for the millions of people they want to kick off their Obamacare coverage.

Trump tweeted:

‘Do not believe the Fake News Media. Oklahoma speech had the highest Saturday television ratings in @FoxNews history. @seanhannity dominated T.V. with my interview on Thursday night, more than @CNN & MSDNC COMBINED. These are the real polls, the Silent Majority, not FAKE POLLS!’

No; Trump is quite literally wrong. Maybe some of the president’s speech viewers didn’t even particularly like Trump but were just curious what he’d say, since he is the current president of the United States, after all. The presidency is not a popularity contest; there are lots of more important issues at hand — although when the White House’s Coronavirus task force conducted regular press briefings, Trump also obsessed about the television ratings. In this case, Trump, of course, has an easily revealed reason for trying to discredit polls — he’s losing in them badly.

After the above tweets, Trump added lies about his administration’s treatment of people with pre-existing conditions. Trump claimed that he’d always protect people with pre-existing conditions, but right now, he is trying to remove the health care that they have under Obamacare with no plan ready to go to replace it. His administration is supporting a lawsuit some Republican-led states have brought to try and end Obamacare, although they have no replacement plan currently ready.
