On Saturday, the president who once said he’d be too busy to go golfing if he was elected went golfing and then attacked Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi on Twitter for having her hair done in a “beauty parlor.” Considering the explosive news of the past week, Trump’s attacks feel particularly petty and useless.
Speaker Pelosi did go to a salon (no one refers to them as “beauty parlors” anymore). She did take her mask off while having her hair washed. She shouldn’t have.
Trump, however, just in the past week, has been exposed as having referred to service members as “losers” and “suckers,” including those who have died fighting for our country. The country found out that Trump doesn’t want wounded veterans at his parades as he believes that “no one wants to see that.” Voters discovered that Trump referred to Vietnam as a “stupid war” and men who couldn’t lie their way out of the draft with their daddy’s money “suckers.” In addition to that, he’s called for an end to federal funding of cultural and race sensitivity trainings during a period of great civil unrest, went to Kenosha against the mayor’s and governor’s wishes and failed to visit with shooting victim Jacob Blake, and criticized his Democratic presidential challenger, Joe Biden, for wearing a mask per Trump’s own CDC guidelines.
But somehow, Trump thinks that Nancy Pelosi having her hair fixed in a salon is going to decide an election.
Twitter wasn’t going for it, either. Read some of their comments below:
