While Shooting Dominates News, President Focuses on Fox Celebs and SNL

In the wake of a deadly anti-Muslim shooting rampage that left 49 people dead in Christchurch, New Zealand, and amid a self-declared national emergency over immigration via the United States’ southern border, the President of the United States has taken to his twitter account to inform the country of what really matters: how he was portrayed on a Saturday Night Live rerun, and the lack of his favorite hosts on Fox news.

In the early hours of Sunday morning, President Trump complained about the popular weekend parody program, suggesting that the FCC and even the Federal Election Commission get involved.

Then — with a break to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and more attacks on deceased Senator and war hero John McCain — it was time to defend embattled Fox news hosts Jeanine Pirro and Tucker Carlson.

Pirro is off the air for a week after she made Islamophobic comments about Congresswoman Ilhan Omar. Last Saturday, the television host claimed that Pirro, being Muslim, could not support U.S. law.

“Think about it: Omar wears a hijab,” Pirro said on her show, titled “Justice,” on Fox News. “Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”

Carlson, meanwhile, faced a brutal week where several tapes of his call-in segments with morning “shock jock” DJ “Bubba the Love Sponge” were brought to light, including several incidents of the host defending convicted pedophile Warren Jeffs.

The President has already been under fire for his response to the New Zealand shooting, including sending “best wishes” to grieving New Zealanders. With his Sunday morning rants about television shows, it would seem that he has already forgotten these shootings.

Massive Maniacal Meltdown: Trump Lashes Out in Rampage of Rage Tweeting – Totally Ignores 61,000 Dead Americans

Published

on

There are currently over one million Americans confirmed to have been infected with coronavirus, and 61,680 Americans who have died from the devastating virus.

Over the past 12 hours President Donald Trump went into meltdown mode. The clearly upset and frustrated leader of the most powerful country on the planet chose to share that frustration as he does daily, on Twitter.

In a rampage of over 40 tweets the President lashed out, tweeting or retweeting about: his former National Security Advisor, fired and disgraced convicted felon Michael Flynn (a lot); former FBI Director Jim Comey, whom he also fired; his Senate acquittal; meat processing plants; Iowa Pork; Iowa; “The Do Nothing Democrats!”; BP America; a GOP Congressman’s attack on Joe Biden; a help wanted link; a right wing extremist pundit’s claim journalists never apologize, after one did the day before – which Trump tweeted; a Sexual Health Counselor’s tweet attacking CNN; Sweden; CNN’s Don Lemon; MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough; MSNBC’s Brian Williams (a lot); CNN (a lot); a lie that Hillary Clinton’s campaign colluded with Russia; “FAKE POLLING”; Roger Stone; Comcast; and a Happy Birthday message to a GOP Congressman.

Missing from those 40-plus tweets was a single word of sorrow, lament, sadness, or grief over the 61,680 Americans who have died from the devastating coronavirus, a pandemic his actions made exponentially worse.

‘Like a Junkie Needs a Fix’: Trump Mocked After White House Cancels Coronavirus Briefing Then Quickly Adds It Back

Published

on

President Donald Trump hasn’t held a coronavirus task force briefing since Friday, when he abruptly ended it after 21 minutes and took no questions – clearly not wanting to have to answer for his dangerous disinfectant “injection” remarks.

The President’s daily schedule for Monday, released Sunday, included a coronavirus task force briefing which the White House subsequently canceled Monday morning.

It’s back on.

The White House Press Pool reports: “The White House has added a press conference/briefing for the Rose Garden. Your updated guidance says 5 p.m., but I’m hearing it will be more like 5:30.”

Many predicted Trump would not be able to go without these daily “briefings,” which some say he is addicted to.

Trump Deletes Embarrassing Rampage of Tweets Confusing ‘Noble’ With ‘Nobel Prize’ and Demanding ‘Noble Committee’ Act

Published

on

President Donald Trump kicked off Sunday with a tweet wishing “our great First Lady” a “Happy Birthday” just past noon but the day quickly devolved into a barrage of attacks and criticism against the free press.

One tweet got a good deal of attention: Trump apparently confusing the word “noble,” with the Nobel Prize, which he then wrongly conflated with the Pulitzer Prize for journalism.

Trump then went on a rampage, attacking the free press and at one point even demanding lawyers look into bringing a lawsuit against reporters and “Fake News Organizations” to get reporters to force the “Noble Committee” to demand reporters return their “Noble Prizes for their work on Russia, Russia, Russia.”

Again, there is no “Noble Committee” or “Noble Prize.” Trump was not exonerated for his actions related to Russia. Democrats committed no crimes. Mainstream media reporters committed no fraud. There was no “terrible injustice” perpetrated against President Trump.

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes noted that reading Trump’s tweets “as extended quotes” makes “the level of derangement” hit home.

Fortunately, there is always a record of everything the President says and does, at least publicly. Factba.se has an archive of the President’s deleted tweets. Here they are:

On Monday, Trump went on a full scale assault on the free press. He has not deleted these tweets:
