It’s Thursday aka *NFL Draft Day.

*I really don’t care it’s draft day, but it was trending on Twitter, I clicked the hashtag and giggled a bit, I figured we could all use a little giggle.*

For Draft Day President Impeached aka President Cry-Baby, aka President Snowflake has tweeted 8 times and retweeted 8 times.

@’s Fox & Friends to thank everyone for the U.S. having ventilators to spare.

Vice President Mike Pence even praises the leadership of President Snowflake in tweet form. Shocking no one really.

110,000 ventilators in 100 days =’s *August 1,2020

*estimated*

Thanks Harvard for returning government money they never applied for.

As the News Blender featured in the Impeached President’s Wednesday campaign rally thread, Harvard University explained that A) they did not apply for the PPP, the small business loan program and B) they did not apply for the $9 billion they were to receive from the $2.2 trillion stimulus package.

There are a total of 10 Harvard tweets relating to the spending, I’m sharing only some in this thread, you can either click the tweet to see the whole, or find all ten in the rally thread linked above.

In their second tweet they say President Snowflake was right, it would not be fair for Harvard to receive a small business loan from the government’s PPP.

On Wednesday Harvard announced via Twitter they would not be accepting the funds from the CARES Act Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund.

While I typically do not cover the retweets, I’m posting this here to show why context matters.

This tweet was sent Wednesday at 6:07 p.m. D.C. time, Harvard sent tweet 2/5 on Tuesday at 7:15 p.m.. Team Trump neglected via our President Snowflake to retweet Wednesday’s tweets that again explain they never applied nor were they given PPP money.

He moves on to comment on his son Don Jr’s., tweet, where Why Won’t You Love Me, Daddy? Say’s he’s looking forward to his Dad, making America Great Again…Again.

He moves to quoting himself, promoting a propaganda video posted by Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX).

The video is 5 minutes and 6 seconds long and has been viewed by an estimated 7.14 million people. I say estimated, as I’m not entirely sure how the video count is calculated.

Aaron Blake with the *Washington Post breaks down each claim Crenshaw mentions in the propaganda video explaining, “it includes misrepresentations, incorrect and context-free claims and false choices.”

I agree with Blake after watching the 5 minute plus video with his assessment. It’s not a “here’s the truth,” video as Crenshaw first floats, it’s a “here’s the truth,” that makes my side look good.

In short it’s a Trump campaign ad.

President Snowflake moves on from propaganda to push propaganda aka red meat for his base.

On Wednesday President Snowflake signed an Executive Order that suspended immigration into the country for 60 days.

From the EO.

He moves on to promote himself via Fox News.

He moves on to promote himself via White House.gov.

The tweeted article, goes to what the White House has labeled a fact-sheet regarding President Snowflake’s EO suspending immigration for 60 days.

He moves on to promoting a new program entitled “Dynamic Ventilator Reserve.”

From the White House article.

Federal policy has achieved this objective so far, and the Trump Administration recently announced the voluntary Dynamic Ventilator Reserve to ensure that patients everywhere can continue accessing ventilators. The Dynamic Ventilator Reserve will deploy ventilators from areas throughout the country with ample excess supply to places that may need a bigger buffer to avoid local shortages.

The White House. 04/21/2020.

The post might be updated.

This is an Open Thread.
