Donald Trump is having a no-good, very bad week. The coronavirus still hasn’t “disappeared like magic.” Jobs numbers show that more than 10 percent of Americans are still out of work. Protests rage on in cities across the country. And Joe Biden picked a strong, competent, badass vice presidential candidate named Kamala Harris to run with him for 2020.
Trump began his morning by criticizing MSNBC for being aligned with the Democratic Party and their candidates and then thanked Fox News for being aligned with the Republican Party and especially with him. Trump did not disparage Scarborough or Mika Brzenzinski in 2016 when they had him on their show repeatedly during his campaign for president, but once they criticized his performance as president, they suddenly became “psycho” and “ditzy.”
This is the same two cable news hosts that Trump once said came to his party with Brzensinski “bleeding badly from a face lift,” a claim they both deny.
Trump is also really panicking over the choice of Kamala Harris as Vice President. She’s tough, accomplished, and most frightening to him, a strong black woman. He’s never been fond of black women, calling out black female reporters during press conferences and black women in Congress throughout his presidency, so no candidate would likely have rattled him more. Biden is not so petty as Trump, understanding that a tough debater is a good person to have on the ticket rather than a sycophant, and Trump cannot understand why.
Twitter was out in full force to respond to Trump’s tweets. Read some of their comments below:
