President Donald Trump consistently refuses to grasp basic reality. On Wednesday, as Coronavirus relief negotiations remained stalled out on Capitol Hill, Trump took to Twitter with the allegation that Democrats “don’t want to give STIMULUS PAYMENTS to people who desperately need the money.” This claim is totally untrue. Democrats literally included provisions for stimulus payments to millions of individual Americans in the HEROES Act, a Coronavirus relief package that the Democrat-led House passed months ago. If Trump is trying to suggest that Democrats don’t really want to give people financial assistance because they haven’t agreed to the GOP’s penny-pinching proposals — well that’s ridiculous.

He tweeted:

‘Democrats are “heartless”. They don’t want to give STIMULUS PAYMENTS to people who desperately need the money, and whose fault it was NOT that the plague came in from China. Go for the much higher numbers, Republicans, it all comes back to the USA anyway (one way or another!).’

Again — this claim is ridiculous. Democrats have spent months pushing for high levels of economic relief for Americans. It’s Republicans who have consistently come in with the lower numbers — this is an uncontestable, duly documented fact. Is Trump simply hoping to push enough propaganda out there that it gets to swing voters who might be under-informed about the real issues? He’s running his re-election campaign on lies and insisting on ascribing nefarious intent to just about everyone imaginable who happens to be on the opposite side of the political spectrum from him.

On Wednesday morning, Trump also tweeted about a controversial moment when CNBC host Jim Cramer called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) “Crazy Nancy” during a live interview. Cramer apologized and claimed that he was merely trying to off-handedly reference the president’s own usage of the nickname for the leader. Trump tweeted that Cramer should not have apologized. As Americans suffer, this is how the president is spending his time — by posting petulant defenses of his inane nicknames on Twitter.
