Donald Trump is losing badly in every poll against his Democratic challenger, Joe Biden, and the strain is definitely showing itself in his tweets. When he starts praying for the return of the deceased Roger Ailes, he’s truly getting scared.
For all Trump’s complaining about “fake news” and “biased media” outlets, he sure didn’t mind them when Roger Ailes was actively helping him win in 2016. He not only didn’t mind, he says publicly that he longs for those days. No one at Fox News is really trashing Trump, of course, he’s insisting that the “fake news” is their polling numbers, which show Trump a full 12 points behind Biden. Those numbers align with virtually every other poll, but the president has always insisted that negative polls are “fake news.”
It’s hard not to appreciate the irony of the Eric Trump and Diamond and Silk retweets Trump posted proudly. If all these people are “with” Donald Trump, he’s not really a “lone” warrior, is he? Since Trump’s approval numbers are tanking along with his chances of winning in 2016, it doesn’t really seem as if everyone is “with” the president, either.
Trump’s endless attacks on the mental acuity of Joe Biden are also pretty ironic, especially considering that they come from the same man who told Americans to inject themselves with disinfectant and that windmills cause cancer. Biden answered questions about that claim today and said that he couldn’t wait for the debates when he can match his own cognitive abilities with Trump’s. He sounded quite clear about that when he said it, too.
Twitter wasn’t impressed with Trump’s rant, either, and reminded him that his longed-for dead friend was a serial sexual abuser. Read some of their comments below:
Seems like he handled the question about "cognitive capability" pretty well to me, Spanky.
Can you spell C-O-G-N-I-T-I-V-E?
Maybe Joe Biden can take you to the woodshed and show you. pic.twitter.com/FCB75pU98c
