Donald Trump, who has convinced his supporters in Georgia that their election system is rigged, will be headed to Georgia for a rally to elect Republicans Sen. Kelly Loeffler and Sen. David Perdue, a rally that will become a Trump rally in which he whines about how unfair everyone is to him and brags about how he’s the greatest president in history.
Trump holding rallies during a sharp spike in COVID-19 cases is infuriating enough, but his “teaser” about the COVID relief bill that Americans are depending on now that the unemployment extension and eviction moratorium have expired is just cruel. The American economy is not a game show where the audience should “stay tuned.” This is about the lives of the people he was elected to serve. After all he’s done to make life worse for all of us, teasing about a potential rescue for struggling Americans is despicable.
Experts say that it’s highly unlikely that Mitch McConnell, should he care to, will be able to drum up enough votes to pass a $2000 per person stimulus package. The same senators who happily voted for massive tax cuts for billionaires are suddenly once again concerned about a deficit. Although Trump has spent like a drunken sailor, the American people are still waiting for the political showdown to end. With Trump in the White House complaining about a fake “rigged election” and holding super spreader events rather than leading, it’s likely we’ll all be waiting awhile.
Twitter wasn’t impressed with Trump’s stunt, either. Read some of their comments below:
