It’s Monday aka “Ugh.”
For Ugh President Impeached has tweeted two times, so far.
God Bless the USA!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 16, 2020
Everybody is so well unified and working so hard. It is a beautiful thing to see. They love our great Country. We will end up being stronger than ever before!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 16, 2020
Placing these two tweets in context, or explaining what President Impeached meant to say is impossible, as they are just words.
God, does, and will continue to bless America, and humans in general.
Who is they, that are so well unified?
Over the weekend President Impeached while dealing with the pandemic caused by the coronavirus tweeted 32 times. I will not be covering all 32 tweets.
Mr. Unity is a beautiful thing to see, sent 3 tweets in all-caps.

On Sunday, the Federal Reserve Bank announced…

Federal Reserve cuts rates to zero and launches massive $700 billion quantitative easing program https://t.co/q6sH4ujrA0— CNBC (@CNBC) March 15, 2020
In a coronavirus update, President Impeached on Sunday, congratulated the Federal Reserve on their bold move.

On Monday the stock market responded, by triggering a 15 minute halt to trading in under a minute of the opening bell.
BREAKING: “The stock market just opened—and it just closed.”— ABC News (@ABC) March 16, 2020
Markets temporarily halt trading as stocks plunge despite the Federal Reserve’s emergency rate cut last night. @GStephanopoulos, @RebeccaJarvis, @CeciliaVega and @DrJAshton report: https://t.co/RAcsMBwMXD pic.twitter.com/SZFUHbf3Cv
Currently, the DOW is hovering around 1,800 points down, while the NASDAQ hovers around 500 points down, with the S&P down around 200 points. The next halt would come if the *S&P 500 reaches 13 percent down.
*From Politico; If the S&P 500 index drops 7 percent or 13 percent before 3:25 p.m., trading will stop for 15 minutes. After 3:25 p.m., declines in those levels don’t halt market-wide trading. But a 20 percent market decline at any time triggers a halt in trading for the rest of the day market-wide.*
SOCIAL DISTANCING!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 14, 2020
In the wake of the pandemic the CDC has recommended that large gatherings be cancelled, that people practice “social distancing.” On Sunday a day after President Impeached, reminded us, of the CDC rec’, Republican Rep. Devin Nunes of California, said if you are healthy now is the time to go visit your local pub…
“If you’re healthy, you and your family, it’s a great time to go out and go to a local restaurant, likely you can get in easy. Let’s not hurt the working people in this country…go to your local pub” pic.twitter.com/jXdhOfwe9R— Acyn Torabi (@Acyn) March 15, 2020
According to the California Health Department, as of 6 p.m. on Saturday, there were 335 positive cases of the coronavirus in California, with 6 deaths. This does not include the passengers of the Grand Princess docked in Oakland.

He thanks his campaign press secretary.
Thank you! https://t.co/fVGdP2Vxt8— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 15, 2020
Bare with me on this because tracking the number of tested individuals is not an easy task, but according to the CDC, “Number of specimens tested for *SARS CoV-2 by CDC labs (N=4,069) and U.S. public health laboratories* (N=18,644)†”
* Reporting public health labs are 48 state public health labs (AK, AL, AR, AZ, CA, CO, CT, DE, FL, GA, HI, IA, ID, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, MS, MT, NC, ND, NE, NH, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OH, OK, OR, PA, RI, SC, SD, TN, TX, VT, WA, WI, WV and WY), New York City, USAF, and 9 California counties.CDC.gov.
† Non-respiratory specimens were excluded. For state public health labs, the date represents the date of sample collection, if available, or the date tested. For CDC labs, the date represents the date specimen was received at CDC. Results reported as of 4:00 pm ET on March 14 were included. All data are preliminary and may change as more reports are received.
‡ Data during this period are incomplete because of the lag in time between when specimens are accessioned, testing is performed, and results are reported.
*According to the CDC; The virus has been named “SARS-CoV-2” and the disease it causes has been named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”).
President Impeached moves on to thank reporter Sara Carter, for pointing out how on Friday, he caused a great stock market rally.
Thank you Sara. Keep writing, great talent! https://t.co/ZMYHzicBcR— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 15, 2020
He moves on to blast fake news…
Amazing how the Fake News never covers this. No Interest on Student Loans. The Dems are just talk! https://t.co/IexVDSYosP— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 15, 2020
The New York Times; Mr. Trump also said he would waive interest on all student loans held by all government agencies, and that the energy secretary would be buying “large quantities of oil” to fill up the country’s strategic reserve — an effort to bolster flagging oil prices.
Still looking for praise President Impeached tweets…
This took place in the Rose Garden, just coming out of a cold Winter! https://t.co/bjHEC9zZkC— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 15, 2020
President Impeached moves on to But Her Emails…
Great Job by Judicial Watch. Potentially a treasure trove. Too bad you are not given more help, but it will all work out! https://t.co/rTYq9YCj2Q— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 15, 2020
In his 5th tweet from Sunday he finally gets around to National Prayer Day.
TODAY IS A NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER. GOD BLESS EVERYONE!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 15, 2020
I am watching a great and beautiful service by Pastor Jentezen Franklin. Thank you! @Jentezen— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 15, 2020
Also on Sunday he floated the idea that pleaded guilty to lying former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn might be pardoned.
So now it is reported that, after destroying his life & the life of his wonderful family (and many others also), the FBI, working in conjunction with the Justice Department, has “lost” the records of General Michael Flynn. How convenient. I am strongly considering a Full Pardon!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 15, 2020
He then explains that it’s fake news to report exactly what tweets say…
The Fake and Corrupt News never called Google. They said this was not true. Even in times such as these, they are not truthful. Watch for their apology, it won’t happen. More importantly, thank you to Google! https://t.co/AuvpbXNouW— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 15, 2020

On Friday after President Impeached spoke in the Rose Garden announcing a website that wasn’t, Google said:

“We appreciate the support of government officials and industry partners and thank the Google engineers who have volunteered to be part of this effort.”— Google Communications (@Google_Comms) March 13, 2020
Which is what the media reported, on Friday…
One last one from Sunday…
The individual Governors of States, and local officials, must step up their efforts on drive up testing and testing sights, working in conjunction with @CDCgov and the Federal Government!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 15, 2020
Hear that governors that’s the sound of the bus warming up…
President Impeached has tweeted one more time.
Just had a very good tele-conference with Nations’s Governors. Went very well. Cuomo of New York has to “do more”.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 16, 2020
At 1:02 p.m. eastern the New York Times reported…
President Trump told a group of governors on Monday that they shouldn’t wait for the federal government to help fill the need for respirators. “Respirators, ventilators, all of the equipment — try getting it yourselves,” he said during a conference call.https://t.co/XMqLEYCVTg— The New York Times (@nytimes) March 16, 2020
According to the New York Times, a recording of the call has been shared with them. President Impeached is quoted as saying;
“Respirators, ventilators, all of the equipment — try getting it yourselves. We will be backing you, but try getting it yourselves. Point of sales, much better, much more direct if you can get it yourself.”
He assured the governors, “We’re going to get it remedied and hopefully very quickly.”
He explained that the $500 billion of Treasury bonds purchased by the Federal Reserve and the $200 billion of mortgage-backed securities will, “probably go up substantially from that level.”
He but Obama’d without naming Obama’s name, “we broke down a system that was broken, very badly broken,” he added his intent to create one that he thinks would be, “the talk of the world.” [I’m sure he’ll explain that new system he intends to create just as soon as he reveals his replacement health care plan for O’care.]
For the article’s conclusion;
But aside from his rose-colored predictions — which are at odds with his medical advisers, who say the worst is yet to come — Mr. Trump often evinced little awareness of the severity of the contagion.The New York Times. 03/16/2020.
Explaining why he did not include the United Kingdom in his initial travel ban from Europe last week, Mr. Trump said “all of the sudden we were getting numbers that weren’t good so we had to put U.K. in.”
#BREAKING: NY, CT and NJ are taking joint regional action to reduce the spread of #COVID19:— Andrew Cuomo (@NYGovCuomo) March 16, 2020
Effective 8PM TONIGHT:
-Crowd capacity reduced to 50
-Restaurants/bars will be takeout/delivery ONLY
-Movie theaters closed
The #Coronavirus doesn't care about state borders, so this agreement with @GovNedLamont & @GovMurphy will help protect the entire Tri-State Area.— Andrew Cuomo (@NYGovCuomo) March 16, 2020
These temporary closures will last as long as is necessary to protect the public health.
Grocery stores will remain OPEN.
Our primary goal is to slow the spread of #Coronavirus so that the wave doesn’t crash our healthcare system. Social distancing is the best way to do that.— Andrew Cuomo (@NYGovCuomo) March 16, 2020
I have called on the federal gov't to implement nationwide protocols, but in their absence we are taking this on ourselves.
He responded to President Impeached call that he does more…
I have to do more?— Andrew Cuomo (@NYGovCuomo) March 16, 2020
No — YOU have to do something! You’re supposed to be the President. https://t.co/tYeDt1lcOZ
There was a scheduled 10:30 a.m. White House presser, it’s been postponed until 3:30 p.m. eastern time. Gee, I can’t even imagine why…
At 9:53 a.m. CA time, the DOW was 2,000 points down.
This post maybe update within reason.
