It’s Tuesday.

President Trump has so far for Tuesday 9 times.

To finish Monday President Trump tweeted 7 times.

Healthcare

In three tweets from Monday President Trump explained that Obamacare was too expensive, announced the Republicans were working on a plan, but as President Trump explained the plans won’t be available until after the 2020 election, when according to him, the R’s will take back the House and hold the Senate.

As the News Blender reported on Monday, the Department of Justice said last week it agreed with a ruling from a federal judge in Texas that invalidated Obamacare.


Puerto Rico

In three tweets from Monday the President attacked Puerto Rico and the Democrats, he continued the attack on Puerto Rico in his first two tweets from Tuesday.

The New York Times reported on Monday that the Senate “blocked billions of dollars in disaster aid for states “across the country as Republicans and Democrats clashed over President Trump’s opposition to sending more food and infrastructure help to Puerto Rico.”

According to the article both parties opposed separate funding bills for “different reasons.”

The Republicans: refused to endorse a recovery bill passed this year by the House. They cited Mr. Trump’s opposition to the bill’s Puerto Rico funding, as well as their own concerns that the bill lacked money for Midwestern states, like Iowa and Nebraska, that have since been devastated by flooding and tornadoes.

The Democrats: Democrats balked at a separate measure drafted by Senate Republicans that included the money for the Midwest, arguing that a proposed $600 million in nutritional assistance for Puerto Rico was not enough. The Republican legislation had no chance in the House.

The article goes on to say that the Democrats on Tuesday will “propose a measure that would allocate billions of dollars that would help Iowa and Nebraska, as well as Puerto Rico, according to a Senate Democratic aide.”

As the New York Times notes, “Varying forms of recovery legislation have been in limbo since December,” as legislation had been tacked on that could have prevented the government shutdown.

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) is quoted as saying, “tonight, my colleagues had the opportunity to choose action over obstruction. Shamefully, Senate Democrats said no.”

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said of the failed disaster funding measure, “Congress used to set politics aside after major disasters and help victims in their time of need — partisan infighting won’t rebuild a single home or school.”

Opinion: The President sent 5 tweets blasting a U.S. territory going so far as to explain in one tweet, “the best thing that ever happened to Puerto Rico is President Donald J. Trump…” he then ended the tweet by saying, “Cannot continue to hurt our Farmers and States with these massive payments, and so little appreciation!”

As stated Puerto Ricans are in fact U.S. citizens. They are not a foreign country, they are part of America.

This is not normal. That can’t be said enough.


The Mueller Report

Opinion: I’m starting in reserve order, first, I didn’t make it through the whole clip from Fox News.

Nobody save a handful of people have seen the full Mueller Report.

The speculation is that even though last week the President was in favor of releasing the full report, he’s now having second thoughts, as he’s not seeing it prior to its supposed public release. I repeat this is speculation, based on the tweets.

Also as to the whataboutism: How shocking that Democrats opposed the release of a report that might make Bill Clinton look bad. I mean honestly, and for what it’s worth, the Ken Starr report was released, regardless of the opposition. Hypocrisy knows no party.
