Attacks New York Senator Chuck Schumer (D), accidentally admitting he was watching Morning Joe.
Somebody please explain to Cryin’ Chuck Schumer that we do have a military man in charge of distributing goods, a very talented Admiral, in fact. New York has gotten far more than any other State, including hospitals & a hospital ship, but no matter what, always complaining…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 2, 2020
…It wouldn’t matter if you got ten times what was needed, it would never be good enough. Unlike other states, New York unfortunately got off to a late start. You should have pushed harder. Stop complaining & find out where all of these supplies are going. Cuomo working hard!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 2, 2020
The Senate Minority leader appeared on the MSNBC show Morning Joe, and explained that while he gives President Impeached credit for taking his calls, he believes the Impeached President’s Administration needs to put in place a Czar to handle production and disruption of medical supplies.
*the comment starts around 2 minutes and 20 seconds.*
As to New York moving slow…
According to the New York Post from *March 12th, 2020, New York City’s first reported coronavirus case was found on March 1st, “Coronavirus hits New York, as Gov. Andrew Cuomo announces the first case, a 39-year-old healthcare worker from Manhattan who recently returned from a trip to Iran.”
Six days later, on March 7th, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo declares a state of emergency, at the time New York had jumped from one case to 89.
*the article has been updated to include dates through March 17th, 2020.*
Between March 1st and March 6th, President Impeached mentioned coronavirus on Twitter, according to Trump Twitter Archive, 12 times.
On March 5th, 2020, just two days before New York declared a state emergency…
With approximately 100,000 CoronaVirus cases worldwide, and 3,280 deaths, the United States, because of quick action on closing our borders, has, as of now, only 129 cases (40 Americans brought in) and 11 deaths. We are working very hard to keep these numbers as low as possible!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 5, 2020
President Impeached held a rally on March 2nd, the day after New York City reported it’s first case. On March 11th, CNN reported that the Impeached President’s reelection campaign the day before announced a new event with “supporters in Milwaukee the same day Democrats Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden announced they were canceling events in Ohio out of concern for public health amid the coronavirus outbreak.”
On the 11th, they cancelled the event.
On March 6th, wearing his campaign hat, President Impeached visited the CDC and said the coronavirus wasn’t as bad as the flu.
Trump is still pushing his bonkers argument that coronavirus isn't that bad because lots of people die from the flu. He then pivots to a plug for Fox News and the ratings his town hall got last night. pic.twitter.com/mAoVbujnj9— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) March 6, 2020
Earlier that same day…
TRUMP on economic hit of coronavirus: "A lot of people are staying here. They're going to be doing their business here. They're going to be traveling here. They'll be going to resorts here. And, you know, we have a great place … we're going to have Americans staying home." pic.twitter.com/dqxWFnwklB— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) March 6, 2020
Trump said re: #COVID19 , "1 day it's like a miracle, it will disappear, there are only 15 people it will go down to ZERO."— Peter Morley (@morethanmySLE) March 28, 2020
We now have 100K+ cases.
TRUMP cared ZERO in Jan. & Feb. while he golfed multiple times & called it a hoax.
WE HAVE THE RECEIPTS!pic.twitter.com/KFcSIreIwG
President Impeached whines more about how other states are “thrilled with the job,” they have done responding to the coronavirus.
Massive amounts of medical supplies, even hospitals and medical centers, are being delivered directly to states and hospitals by the Federal Government. Some have insatiable appetites & are never satisfied (politics?). Remember, we are a backup for them. The complainers should…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 2, 2020
….have been stocked up and ready long before this crisis hit. Other states are thrilled with the job we have done. Sending many Ventilators today, with thousands being built. 51 large cargo planes coming in with medical supplies. Prefer sending directly to hospitals.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 2, 2020

President Impeached then pivots from blasting a Senator, self-praising, and quoting his favorites from the Fox News family to announcing that he “expects and hopes,” that after speaking with his “friend,” MBS of Saudi Arabia, that “they will be cutting back approximately 10 million Barrels,” of oil.
Just spoke to my friend MBS (Crown Prince) of Saudi Arabia, who spoke with President Putin of Russia, & I expect & hope that they will be cutting back approximately 10 Million Barrels, and maybe substantially more which, if it happens, will be GREAT for the oil & gas industry!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 2, 2020
He issued a second tweet that said, “could be as much as 15 million barrels.”
…..Could be as high as 15 Million Barrels. Good (GREAT) news for everyone!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 2, 2020
Good for the consumer, gasoline prices coming down!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 9, 2020
The New York Times reported that oil spiked after President Impeached tweeted his “hope,” that, “Saudi Arabia and Russia would substantially cut their oil production to halt the collapse of prices.”
Russian President Putin, denied he spoke with the Impeached President’s friend MBS through spokesman Dmitri Peskov, “No, there was no conversation.”
In related news, the Labor Department said on Thursday the weekly unemployment insurance claims reached 6.6 million, adding to last weeks brings the two week total to an estimated 10 million.
Yep, you guessed it, another day, another mini-rally.
