Before we review the Monday’s Impeached President Trump’s tweets, let’s take a look back over Saturday and Sunday.
Saturday was a busy day for President Impeached, tweeting/retweeting 72 times.
The reassigning of Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman.
Fake News @CNN & MSDNC keep talking about “Lt. Col.” Vindman as though I should think only how wonderful he was. Actually, I don’t know him, never spoke to him, or met him (I don’t believe!) but, he was very insubordinate, reported contents of my “perfect” calls incorrectly, &…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 8, 2020
….was given a horrendous report by his superior, the man he reported to, who publicly stated that Vindman had problems with judgement, adhering to the chain of command and leaking information. In other words, “OUT”.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 8, 2020
On Friday the White House dismissed two Impeachment witnesses, Vindman, who was the top Ukraine expert on the National Security Council and the U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland. Vindman’s twin brother was also pushed out of his White House post.
CNN reports that according to an Adviser to President Impeached, that “the firings of the major impeachment witnesses was meant to send a message that siding against the President will not be tolerated.”Flushing out the pipes,” the adviser told CNN. “It was necessary.””
They note that Lt. Colonel Vindman was expect to leave the White House in July.
On Sunday Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham was asked about Vindam’s dismissal on Face the Nation.
Asked whether the summary firing of LTC Alexander Vindman was justified Graham says Vindman was part of broader plot against President Trump by FBI Agents, CIA Agents and DOJ Lawyers. pic.twitter.com/AwgimKjlky— Josh Marshall (@joshtpm) February 9, 2020
In short Graham pushed the “Deep State,” theory without calling it that. He went on to lie and say that Vindman, was not allowed to testify to his connections with the Whistleblower.
Page 59, Congress.gov, Vindman’s public testimony PDF.
Mr. Nunes [Devin Nunes, Ranking Member R-CA]. Lieutenant Colonel Vindman, you testified in the deposition that you did not know who the whistleblower was or is.
Lieutenant Colonel Vindman. I do not who the whistleblower is. That is correct.
Pete Rose played Major League Baseball for 24 seasons, from 1963-1986, and had more hits, 4,256, than any other player (by a wide margin). He gambled, but only on his own team winning, and paid a decades long price. GET PETE ROSE INTO THE BASEBALL HALL OF FAME. It’s Time!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 8, 2020
NBC Sports explains that Rose, has petitioned MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred to be welcomed back into “baseball’s good graces,” following the Astros’ cheating scandal that found a “recent lack of punishment for players involved,” in said scandal. Rose offers that of proof that “his crimes do not meet the levels of odiousness to keep him out of the game.”
USA TODAY explains that Rose was banned from baseball in 1989, “for gambling on games while he managed the Cincinnati Reds.” They also note that it’s unlikely that even with President Impeached support that Manfred would reinstate Rose, having denied a similar petition in 2015. In 2017 Rose appealed to the Hall of Fame officers and was also unsuccessful.
This is not the first time President Impeached mentioned Rose via Twitter.
Let Pete Rose into the Baseball Hall of Fame. It’s time, he has paid a big and very long price!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 14, 2015
Let Pete Rose into the Hall of Fame now – 35 years is enough!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 12, 2015
Before he expressed his desire to see Rose back in baseballs good graces, the Impeached President took issue with a photo of himself, explaining that it was “obviously,” Fake News.
More Fake News. This was photoshopped, obviously, but the wind was strong and the hair looks good? Anything to demean! https://t.co/t8ptYMCYHf— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 8, 2020
Totally Fake News…
The photo was taken on Friday and posted at 5:30 p.m. eastern time, at 10:30 p.m. eastern time “White House Photos,” added…
Today, @realDonaldTrump was dancing with the sunset and strong winds when he walked to the Oval Office from the Marine One on the South Lawn.— White House Photos (@photowhitehouse) February 8, 2020
but but but President Impeached is a strong alpha-male…
Not to be outdone by himself the President also took to Twitter to attack Rep. Debbie Dingell, the widow of John Dingell, who passed away in 2019.
.@RepDebDingell, who called me, tears flowing, to thank me for rolling out the maximum “Red Carpet” for the funeral of her husband, then voted against me on the partisan Impeachmen Hoax, said “everybody (Dems) wants to get out of town. This has been, in my whole career, one of…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 8, 2020
…the worst weeks ever.” She could have had a much better week if Crazy Nancy, who is the most overrated person in politics (going to lose the House a second time), didn’t bring the phony & corrupt Impeachment Hoax. Dems can’t do anything right, just look at the Iowa vote count!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 8, 2020
Her last posted tweet was Sunday.
Hateful rhetoric, name calling, and personal attacks are becoming too common and almost acceptable in today’s world. Let’s take some time out, a deep breath, and renew the call for civility. We can never forget there’s more that unites us than divides us.https://t.co/5sJ0IHBF7t— Rep. Debbie Dingell (@RepDebDingell) February 9, 2020
I think we can call this tweeted opinion piece, a bit of “shade,” being thrown.
But wait there is one more tweet that deserves a mention from Saturday…
We will not be touching your Social Security or Medicare in Fiscal 2021 Budget. Only the Democrats will destroy them by destroying our Country’s greatest ever Economy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 8, 2020
On Sunday The Wall Street Journal reported that “President Trump is expected to release a $4.8 trillion budget Monday that charts a path for a potential second term, proposing steep reductions in social-safety-net programs and foreign aid and higher outlays for defense and veterans.”
The New York Times explains that President Impeached budget “the largest in federal history,” was sent to Congress on Monday.
[It] includes a nearly 5 percent increase in military spending — which is more than the Pentagon had asked for — and an additional $8.6 billion for construction of a wall along the border with Mexico. It also contains what White House officials called a total of $1.9 trillion in cost savings from mandatory safety-net programs, like Medicaid and Medicare, the federal health care programs for the elderly and the poor.
Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, the Democratic leader, called the proposal “a gut punch to the American middle class.” He said Mr. Trump’s requested cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, “as well as numerous other middle-class programs, are devastating, but not surprising.”The New York Times 02/10/2020.
On Sunday the Washington Post noted:
The largest parts of the government’s budget are “mandatory” spending programs that are automatically renewed each year without congressional approval, such as Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Trump said on Twitter Saturday that the budget “will not be touching your Social Security or Medicare.” In 2015, he promised not to seek cuts to Medicaid as well, but his budgets have routinely sought big Medicaid changes that would cut roughly $800 billion from the program over 10 years.The Washington Post 02/09/2020.
Treasury Secretary Assistant Sec. Monica Crowley defends cuts to entitlements in Trump’s new 2021 budget proposal: “The president also understands that Washington’s habit of out of control spending without consequence has to be stopped.” pic.twitter.com/4VdP3fItJ6— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) February 10, 2020
While he tweeted more on Saturday, Sunday was not a quiet day, he tweeted and retweeted 45 times in one of hour. His total for the day was 54 tweets/retweets.
FBI Director Christopher Wray just admitted that the FISA Warrants and Survailence of my campaign were illegal. So was the Fake Dossier. THEREFORE, THE WHOLE SCAM INVESTIGATION, THE MUELLER REPORT AND EVERYTHING ELSE FOR THREE YEARS, WAS A FIXED HOAX. WHO PAYS THE PRICE?….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 9, 2020
….This is the biggest political crime in American History, by far. SIMPLY PUT, THE PARTY IN POWER ILLEGALLY SPIED ON MY CAMPAIGN, BOTH BEFORE AND AFTER THE ELECTION, IN ORDER TO CHANGE OR NULLIFY THE RESULTS OF THE ELECTION. IT CONTINUED ON WITH THE IMPEACHMENT HOAX. Terrible!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 9, 2020
What FBI Director Chris Wray said in a statement following the IG Inspector General’s report that detailed errors and problems with a FISA warrant requested and issued on former Trump campaign member Carter Page.
The Report concludes that the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation and related investigations of certain individuals were opened in 2016 for an authorized purpose and with adequate factual predication. The Report also details instances in which certain FBI personnel, at times during the 2016-2017 period reviewed by the OIG, did not comply with existing policies, neglected to exercise appropriate diligence, or otherwise failed to meet the standard of conduct that the FBI expects of its employees — and that our country expects of the FBI. We are vested with significant authorities, and it is our obligation as public servants to ensure that these authorities are exercised with objectivity and integrity. Anything less falls short of the FBI’s duty to the American people.
Wray testified before the House Judiciary Committee on February 5th, 2020.
President Impeached also took time to on Sunday to blast Mitt Romney the lone Senate Republican that voted to convict President Impeached on Article I, Abuse of Power.
Romney hurt some very good Republican Senators, and he was wrong about the Impeachment Hoax. No clue! https://t.co/J6rtaZYYxD— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 9, 2020
FULL REMARKS — @SenatorRomney: “The grave question the Constitution tasks senators to answer is whether the president committed an act so extreme and egregious that it rises to the level of a high crime and misdemeanor. Yes, he did.” pic.twitter.com/fbIhPG12IO— CSPAN (@cspan) February 5, 2020
He also via tweet attacked Democratic Senators Doug Jones (AL) and Joe Manchin (WV), while also taking another swipe at Romney.
So good to see that Republicans will be winning the Great State of Alabama Senate Seat back, now that lightweight Senator @DougJones cast a partisan vote for the Impeachment Hoax. Thought his boss, Cryin’ Chuck, would have forced him to vote against the Hoax. A Do Nothing Stiff!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 9, 2020
Can’t say I mind the fact that the great people of West Virginia are furious at their puppet Democrat Senator, Joe Manchin. They will never forget his phony vote on the Impeachment Hoax. All he had to do is read the Transcripts, sadly, which he wouldn’t understand anyway…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 9, 2020
…But, just like the people of West Virginia will no longer look at weak & pathetic Joe Manchin the same (I got the Pension Bill approved, Manchin couldn’t do it), the wonderful people of Utah will never look at “grandstander” Mitt Romney with anything but contempt & disgust!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 9, 2020
He concluded Sunday in all caps, because that’s how President Impeached rolls.
DRAIN THE SWAMP!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 9, 2020
MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN and then, KEEP AMERICA GREAT!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 9, 2020
Mr. Impeached has tweeted 6 times and retweeted 5 times so far for Monday.
Will be in Manchester, New Hampshire, tonight for a big Rally. Want to shake up the Dems a little bit – they have a really boring deal going on. Still waiting for the Iowa results, votes were fried. Big crowds in Manchester!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 10, 2020
“Still waiting for the Iowa results…”
NBC News reported on Sunday that the Iowa Democratic Party “allocated delegates based on,” the Iowa caucuses, “giving former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg the largest delegate count, followed closely by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. The party said it would award 14 delegates to Buttigieg and 12 to Sanders based on the results it had collected.”
Other candidates of interest, Elizabeth Warren will receive 8 delegates, while Joe Biden will take 6, and Amy Klobuchar has received 1 delegate.
They also note that NBC is not declaring a winner, adding, “Iowa Democratic caucus results are not actual votes cast. The percentages received by candidates, based on returns of the estimated number of state convention delegates won by each candidate through the caucus process, are known as state delegate equivalents, or SDEs.”
“votes were fried.”
Not even close, but this is not the first President Impeached has mentioned that Iowa’s votes were “fried.”
The votes in Iowa were recorded on paper, the reporting of the results via phone-line and app, were hit with technical issues that delayed the reporting of the votes.
95% Approval Rating in the Republican Party, a Record! 53% overall (plus add 9 points?). Corrupt Democrat politicians have brought me to highest polling numbers ever with the Impeachment Hoax. Thank you Nancy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 10, 2020
Trump is now close to 95% Republican approval in some polls (94% in Gallup); this still isn’t a record. (W. Bush hit 99% in 2001, H.W. Bush hit 97% in 1991.) He isn’t at 53% approval, though he’s up; 49% even in Rasmussen, 43.8% in the 538 average. pic.twitter.com/Q4KypQHOhC— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) February 10, 2020
This is classic Trump: he could accurately boast that he’s hit his highest approval in Gallup polling since he took office, among other good-for-him approval results. Instead, he’s made up a number and pretended to have a record.— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) February 10, 2020
Because of how badly they did with the Impeachment Hoax, AOC will primary Cryin’ Chuck Schumer, and win, and Jerry Nadler has a good chance of losing to his far left primary opponent! It is all getting quite interesting. Pelosi will lose the House, AGAIN! My poll numbers great.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 10, 2020
Politico is calling this a prediction on the part of President Impeached. I call it delusional, but that’s just me.
Hope the Fake News, which never discusses it, is talking about the big crowds forming for my New Hampshire Rally tonight. They won’t!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 10, 2020
New Hampshire’s primary will be held on Tuesday. The Impeached President, according to Donald J. Trump/events has 2 more planned rallies.
Phoenix, Az., on the 19th, followed the next day by a rally from Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Trump says he'll do rallies even after he wins the 2020 election.— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) February 7, 2020
Of course he will, how else will he get his ego stroked…
Thank you to @mirandadevine of the New York Post for your interesting (and correct) column today. “Trump has gained 20 points since Impeachment began in October. He gets 67% on economy. Nonwhite approval of Trump is also at a high: 28%, up 10 points in a year. Nice one, Nancy.”— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 10, 2020
Real Clear Politics has the Impeached President’s job approval average at 45.7 percent approve, while 52 percent disapprove.
Meeting with U.S. Governors in a short while. All States are doing well. “Thank you Mr. President.”— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 10, 2020
Just what I always wanted an Impeached President that thanks himself via social media that everyone in the world, mostly, has access too. #Winning.
Trump told governors this morning: "European Union was really formed so they could treat us badly, so they've done their job." The European Union and its precursor was formed with the support of the United States. It was not formed to mistreat the United States.— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) February 10, 2020
There is a slight possibility this post will be updated.
There will be a rally thread.
