It’s Friday aka Good Friday.

For Good Friday President Impeached has tweeted 13 times and retweeted 59 times for a total of 72 tweets so far.

Shortly after midnight D.C. time, President Impeached retweeted 17 times before he issued his first Friday tweet in which he thanked Erin Perrine, his 2020 communications deputy director

Real Clear Politics has the Impeached President’s average job approval at 45.2 percent with his disapproval average at 50.4 percent.

His highest approval rating of 49 percent comes from a Fox News poll, that shows his disapproval is tied with his approval rating at 49 percent.

His lowest approval of 42 percent approval comes from Reuters/Ipsos poll, with his disapproval coming in at 55 percent.

On Friday, According to Rasmussen Reports daily President Impeached Tracking Poll, his approval rating is at 43 percent while 56 percent disapprove.

He retweeted 7 more times, before sending another thank you this time to Frank Luntz.

Journalists need to care about getting the facts more than they care about getting Trump.

It sure would be nice if the President of the United States was held to that same standard. I’m just saying.

He moves on to call Senator Tim Scott a “great person,” for blasting the Senate Democrats for blocking extending funding to the already passed Paycheck Protection Program.

After thanking Luntz and calling Scott a great person President Impeached retweeted 19 times. His next tweet came at between 7 or 7:30 a.m. D.C. time. I say between because he deleted it only to replace it at 7:32 a.m. D.C. time.

The Payroll Protection Program (PPP) was funded up to $350 billion according to CNBC News, in order for the loan to be converted to a grant the loan must go toward 75 percent of the businesses payroll costs.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin requested the additional $250 billion on Tuesday.

ABC News reported that Democrats blocked the addition on Thursday.

Democrats, represented Thursday by Maryland Sens. Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen, decried McConnell’s move as “a political stunt,” claiming that the GOP leader knew beforehand that the measure would fail, particularly as his Democratic counterpart, Chuck Schumer, had unveiled a $500 billion relief package earlier this week, $250 billion of which would aid small businesses, half of that for minority-owned ones, and the other $250 billion earmarked for hospitals, first responders, and those in dire need of food assistance.

Senate Majority Leader Senator Mitch McConnell called the blockage “political maneuvering.”

He moves on from supporting more tax payer funded spending on loans that may or may not turn into grants to brag about the stock market.

The Stock Exchange is closed for Good Friday.

On Thursday the Dow close at +285.80 (1.22 percent) 23,719.37. NASDAQ +62.67 (.77 percent) 8,153.58. S&P 500 +39.84 (1.45 percent) 2,789.82. (CNN Money).

After he brags about the stock market he moves on to demanding Congress pass a tax deduction that would benefit his own businesses.

He retweets 9 more times, including this retweet using the hashtags (#) QAnon, QAnon2018, QAnon2020, and DemocratsHateAmerica.

So presidential, Swoon.

His next tweet is in response to Fox Contributor Greg Jarrett, where he once again spends more tax payer money.

But but but he’s against socialism…

He retweets 4 more times before sending 5 tweets in rapid succession.

Lies about his approval rating among Republicans again.

The Reuters/Ipsos poll has his approval among Republicans @ 86 percent. This is the 4th time via tweet that President Impeached has said he has 96 percent approval among Republicans. It hasn’t been true once.

After retweeting a conspiracy theorist that says Democrats Hate America, President Impeached wishes us all a Happy Good Friday, in all caps.

He announces that his typical evening rally will be held at 1 p.m. D.C. time.

Once again he brags about his TV ratings, while American’s die.

John Hopkins has U.S. confirmed cases of the coronavirus at 467,184. 16,736 people have died. While 26,522 are said to be in total recovery.

In New York workers are burying their dead, on Hart Island just off the coast of the Bronx.

But it’s the ratings our President is focusing on.

Don’t worry y’all that “invisible enemy,” will soon retreat.

Yeah, but when will the visible enemy retreat, and take his admin with him, that is the question.

He goes back to retweeting 3 more times before he tweets once more, so far.

In which blames Elizabeth Warren for Bernie Sanders losing the Democratic primaries.

This is how voting works. When I cast a vote for whoever, say Mickey Mouse, my vote only counts for him. This idea that a vote for Warren was a vote lost by Sanders, is factually wrong, we have zero idea if all of her voters would have pulled the lever, or filled in the bubble, or used the touch screen to support Sanders. That is not how voting works.

Now, you might be asking how come the Impeached Asshole President retweeted like a tween just finding out her celebrity crush got married thus ending her chances of landing said celebrity.

Well right before he let loose with the tweets he tweeted his intention to offer another bailout to farmers.

This will be the 3rd cash payment directed toward farmers, the first was announced Summer of 2018 and totaled $12 billion in emergency aid, coming just months after President Impeached placed heavy tariffs on China. The second direct payment was announced in May of 2019 and totaled $16 billion. Bringing the total farmer bailout in the awake of heavy tariffs placed by President Impeached to $24 billion.

But but but Republicans hate socialism. Sure, Jan.

Given the presser is now happening at 1 p.m. D.C. time, I’m placing the live feeds here.

Live Feeds.

The Hill.



President Impeached will tweet again, I doubt seriously I’ll be in the frame of mind to update the post, but we shall see.

This is an Open Thread.
