Trump Tweets: It’s Wednesday’s Open Thread

It’s Wednesday.

But I do celebrate the birth of two fictional characters.

*for those who aren’t Harry Potter fans, pictured above, joke shop owners Fred and George Weasley, born on April Fool’s Day!*

At 8:15 a.m. CA. time, President Impeached has not tweeted, his last 3 tweets were sent 15 hours ago.

On Tuesday President Impeached held a daily coronavirus update White House press briefing aka mini-rally to explain that the 15 days to stop the spread of the deadly virus was now 30 days. April 1st–April 30th.

The extension to the “President Guidelines,” *eye roll* is the hopes to keep the death toll down to around 100,000 to 240,000 people. That’s not a typo.

John Hopkins as of 8:50 a.m. CA. time, has total confirmed U.S. cases of the coronavirus at 190,089 people, with 4,102 deaths related to the virus, while 7,141 people are said to be in total recovery.

As a note, the number of projected deaths resulting from the virus, is based on all people social distancing, washing hands, limiting trips to the stores, no gathering of more than 10 people, or less.

It’s possible as Dr. Fauci said in the presser yesterday the number of deaths could be lower, but it will not be lower, if we the people do not do our part, we can’t control everyone, but we can be responsible, if you are sick, stay home, if you have elderly relatives, please remember they are at risk from this disease. I do not tell you these things to fearmonger, or scare you. I tell you these things because it’s the truth, our government can’t help us, we must help ourselves and each other by trying to stop the spread. Lives are actually at stake.

Also worth noting, this doesn’t mean, let’s be sad sacks, and not in fact find humor, such as;

Or miss the cute that is journalists working from home such as;

And let us not forget snarky!

President Impeached has now tweeted 2 times.

Something about bringing closed restaurants back quickly, while we are still advised to avoid social gatherings.

According to Reuters on Sunday, President Impeached first floated the idea that Congress should restore the full tax deduction for meals and entertainment.

a wide-ranging 2017 tax reform measure, Congress eliminated the corporate tax deduction for entertainment expenses, but taxpayers were allowed to continue to deduct 50% of the cost of client business meals. Trump said he wanted to restore that tax deduction “so companies can send people to restaurants.”

Again, we are not gathering a restaurants some are doing take-out orders, but companies currently aren’t sending people to restaurants.

He moves away from asking Congress for a tax break that’s pointless to threaten war with Iran.

The Washington Post reported on Wednesday that the “saber rattling from Trump comes as Iran-backed militias are becoming more audacious in attacking U.S. personnel in Iraq, with rocket strikes against military bases occurring more frequently and, for the first time, in broad daylight.”

According to U.S. Officials they are, “receiving near-daily reports of “imminent” attacks planned against U.S.-linked military or diplomatic facilities.”

For What It’s Worth:

From the man that said to us, “like a miracle,” the coronavirus would go away, I’d first like to ask, “who’s information,” and what “belief,” so far, his information and his belief everything was fine, has not worked out so well for us.

Let it sink it, the day after the President of the U.S., said we should be prepared for a death tool of up to 240,000 people, he’s now suggesting we might-maybe, planning on making Iran “pay a heavy price, indeed!”

I think it’s safe to say we can call both of these tweets so far an attempt to change the news cycle.
