It’s Wednesday aka Half-way Through the Work Week.

For Half-way Through the Work Week, President Impeached has tweeted 9 times and retweeted 18 times.

Quotes super fan Lou Dobbs.

Fox Business host Lou Dobbs is currently self-quarantine as someone on his staff has tested positive for the coronavirus. Also self-quarantining are Fox anchors Liz Claman and Charles Payne. (Raw Story).

As I have repeatedly said in the comment section of the mini-rally threads, that is simply not true, thanks to regular Blender, NCMountainGirl, I now have a handy heavily linked timeline of the President Impeached and team’s response to the coronavirus.

From the White House order suspending entry from China.

Suspension and Limitation on Entry. The entry into the United States, as immigrants or nonimmigrants, of all aliens who were physically present within the People’s Republic of China, excluding the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macau, during the 14-day period preceding their entry or attempted entry into the United States is hereby suspended and limited subject to section 2 of this proclamation.

Presidential Order. 01/31/2020.
Presidential Order.
Presidential Order.
Presidential Order.

What is interesting to note about the above order, is the opening line, the very first sentence, “The United States has confirmed cases of individuals who have a severe acute respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus (“2019-nCoV”) (“the virus”) first detected in Wuhan, Hubei Province, People’s Republic of China (“China”).

The very first US case was reported by the CDC on January 21st. That is ten days before the travel ban that wasn’t a ban as much as it was restriction on travel.

The first state to report was Washington State.

He moves way from quoting super fan Lou Dobbs to bragging about all his hard work with New York’s governor and Mayor.

During Tuesday’s Fox News virtual Town Hall President Impeached said regarding Governors who are begging the Federal Government for help aka real leadership, that “it’s a two-way street, they have to treat us well.”

Mayor of New York City Bill de Blasio on Monday said it was 400 ventilators not 4,000.

The New York Post on Tuesday reported that President Impeached confirmed he was sending 400 ventilators to New York.

According to the White House transcript from Tuesday’s mini-rally, President Impeached said 4,000.


It’s either 400 or 4,000, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York said they need an estimated 30,000.

For What It’s Worth: Axios is reporting that according to Vice President Mike Pence, coronavirus task force lead, New York will receive 4,000 ventilators over the next two days.

He moves on from being President Impeached to being President Asshole…

President Asshole aka President Impeached has continued to tweet as I write this article, because yeah, he’s got nothing more pressing to do or anything like that…

The we are historic tweet…

President Impeached and fans in Tuesday’s mini-rally explained that “We now have 370,000 tests that have been done.  The majority of those — over 220,000 in the last eight days, which, those of you who have been tracking the South Korea numbers, put us equivalent to what they did in eight weeks that we did in eight days.”

NPR explained on Tuesday, “South Korea has a population of just 51 million people; the United States has 327 million. At about 300,000 tests in each country, that means South Korea has tested 1-in-170 people; the United States: 1-in-1,090. That’s more than six times less, per capita, than South Korea.”

The bragging about what other people are doing tweet…

He congratulates Japan from postponing the Summer Olympics and tells us he look’s forward to being in attendance.

As CNN reported on March 24th, for the first time, the Summer Games have been delayed, not cancelled.

His last tweet so far for Wednesday…

There is a mini-rally scheduled for 5 p.m. D.C. time.

This post will be updated within reason.

This is an Open Thread.
