It’s Monday aka Memorial Day.
For Memorial Day President Clueless has tweeted 8 times, and retweeted 2 times so far.
President Clueless attempts to blame the Democratic Governor of North Carolina for following CDC guidelines during the reopening of states phase of the coronavirus pandemic.
I love the Great State of North Carolina, so much so that I insisted on having the Republican National Convention in Charlotte at the end of August. Unfortunately, Democrat Governor, @RoyCooperNC is still in Shutdown mood & unable to guarantee that by August we will be allowed…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 25, 2020
…full attendance in the Arena. In other words, we would be spending millions of dollars building the Arena to a very high standard without even knowing if the Democrat Governor would allow the Republican Party to fully occupy the space. Plans are being….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 25, 2020
…made by many thousands of enthusiastic Republicans, and others, to head to beautiful North Carolina in August. They must be immediately given an answer by the Governor as to whether or not the space will be allowed to be fully occupied. If not, we will be reluctantly forced…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 25, 2020
…to find, with all of the jobs and economic development it brings, another Republican National Convention site. This is not something I want to do. Thank you, and I LOVE the people of North Carolina!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 25, 2020
Here’s Mike Pence on Fox & Friends today threatening to move the RNC unless North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper (D) moves quicker to reopen the state amid the coronavirus pandemic pic.twitter.com/DMU70HfIH1— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) May 25, 2020

According to the North Carolina Governor’s Office, North Carolina has moved as of May 22nd, into phase two of the three phased approach to reopening North Carolina.
Effective 5 p.m., Friday May 22, North Carolina has moved into Safer At Home Phase 2 of lifting COVID-19 restrictions. The phase runs through at least Friday, June 26 unless changed or canceled. Although the state’s overall key indicators remain stable, the continued increases in daily case counts signals a need to take a more modest step forward in Phase 2 than originally envisioned.NC.gov.
Under phase two the large venue settings guidelines are; Any scenario in which many people gather together poses a risk for COVID-19 transmission. All businesses and agencies where groups of people gather in an enclosed space should create and implement a plan to minimize the opportunity for COVID-19 transmission at their facility. The guidance below will help large venues including large theaters, sporting arenas, conventions centers, and stadiums reduce the spread of COVID-19 in their communities.
The 2020 Republican National Committee Convention is scheduled to take place August 24th, through the 27th, 2020.
He moves on to wish everyone a “Happy Memorial Day,” in all caps.
HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 25, 2020
As Richard explains in the Night Owl, Memorial Day, is “set aside to remember the men and women who lost their lives while serving the nation.”
Today is suppose to be a day of remembrance of those men and women, both in combat and outside of combat, that have lost their lives in service to the United States.
This Memorial Day is also more poignant given the coronavirus pandemic with the U.S., about to reach the grim milestone of 100,000 people perishing from the deadly virus.
As I’ve mentioned before some days covering the tweets of President Jerk are harder than others, today, is such a day.
President Slogan moves away from wishing us a “HAPPY,” day to attempt to slogan his way through his piss-poor handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
TRANSITION TO GREATNESS! Get ready, it is already happening again!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 25, 2020
President To Little Too Late attempts to strike a more solemn Memorial Day tone, by promoting himself…
The new solemn tone lasted 22 minutes.
Some stories about the fact that in order to get outside and perhaps, even a little exercise, I played golf over the weekend. The Fake & Totally Corrupt News makes it sound like a mortal sin – I knew this would happen! What they don’t say is that it was my first golf in almost…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 25, 2020
….3 months and, if I waited 3 years, they would do their usual “hit” pieces anyway. They are sick with hatred and dishonesty. They are truly deranged! They don’t mention Sleepy Joe’s poor work ethic, or all of the time Obama spent on the golf course, often flying to….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 25, 2020
….Hawaii in a big, fully loaded 747, to play. What did that do to the so-called Carbon Footprint? He also played moments after the brutal killing by ISIS of a wonderful young man. Totally inappropriate – and it was me who shattered 100% of the ISIS Caliphate. I was left a MESS!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 25, 2020
Can you believe that,with all of the problems and difficulties facing the U.S., President Obama spent the day playing golf.Worse than Carter— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 14, 2014
We pay for Obama’s travel so he can fundraise millions so Democrats can run on lies. Then we pay for his golf.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 14, 2014
On August 21st, 2014, the New York Times reported on former President Obama golfing following his announcement that American journalist James Foley had been killed by ISIS.
If Mr. Obama hoped to show America’s enemies that they cannot hijack his schedule, he also showed many of his friends in America that he disdains the politics of appearance. He long ago stopped worrying about what critics say, according to aides, and after the outcry over Wednesday’s game, he defied the critics by golfing again on Thursday, his eighth outing in 11 days on the island.
It was all the more striking given that Prime Minister David Cameron of Britain canceled his vacation after the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria released the video showing Mr. Foley’s death because the accent of the masked killer suggested he came from Britain. Former Vice President Dick Cheney told Fox News that Mr. Obama would “rather be on the golf course than he would be dealing with the crisis.”New York Times. 08/21/2014.
This is the second time in 24 hours President Whines a Lot criticized his bad press for golfing on Memorial Weekend.
Sleepy Joe’s representatives have just put out an ad saying that I went to play golf (exercise) today. They think I should stay in the White House at all times. What they didn’t say is that it’s the first time I’ve played golf in almost 3 months, that Biden was constantly…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 25, 2020
…vacationing, relaxing & making shady deals with other countries, & that Barack was always playing golf, doing much of his traveling in a fume spewing 747 to play golf in Hawaii – Once even teeing off immediately after announcing the gruesome death of a great young man by ISIS!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 25, 2020
Nearly 100,000 lives have been lost, and tens of millions are out of work.— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) May 24, 2020

Fact Check: at same point in presidency:— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) May 25, 2020

Between Saturday and Sunday including the above two tweets President Baby tweeted 39 times. Two of which once again accused media personality Joe Scarborough of murder, bragged about giving his annual Presidential salary away, accused the Democrats of attempting to “rig,” the 2020 election, declared his love for boaters, forgot that comma’s are important, and demand the schools be reopened based on the “much very good,” information we now have regarding the coronavirus outbreak.
A blow to her head? Body found under his desk? Left Congress suddenly? Big topic of discussion in Florida…and, he’s a Nut Job (with bad ratings). Keep digging, use forensic geniuses! https://t.co/UxbS5gZecd— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 24, 2020
A lot of interest in this story about Psycho Joe Scarborough. So a young marathon runner just happened to faint in his office, hit her head on his desk, & die? I would think there is a lot more to this story than that? An affair? What about the so-called investigator? Read story! https://t.co/CjBXBXxoNS— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 24, 2020
A Florida family grieves as Trump spreads a debunked conspiracy theory.— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) May 25, 2020
"No one in Klausutis's family would talk about Trump's tweets for this article, fearing retaliation by online trolls of the type who went after parents of the Sandy Hook victims." https://t.co/XdSdR09dJ3
Lori Kaye Klausutis died in 2001, she was 28 years-old, she was not “a college intern, as some have claimed. She was not pregnant, either, as some have asserted. And she was not, as Trump claimed Sunday and others have before him, a marathon runner.”
No one from her family would comment on the Washington Post‘s story “fearing retaliation by online trolls of the type who went after parents of the Sandy Hook massacre victims.”
*I have reported both of his tweets to twitter as targeted harassment*
I give, and have given from the beginning, my entire yearly salary, $400,000 to $450,000, back to our government. Last check to HHS Covid relief. My great honor! https://t.co/Vv6Uyz9MkF— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 25, 2020
During her Friday press briefing where she praised President Douchebag for giving his money away, Kayleigh McEnany aired his bank account number and routing number for the whole world to see.
The Democrats are trying to Rig the 2020 Election, plain and simple! https://t.co/jlDhzGRnqa— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 25, 2020
The Democrats are attempting to “rig,” the election by encouraging their state residents to vote by mail in November 2020, to avoid having large crowds gathered at polling places during what experts assume will be a second wave of the coronavirus outbreak combined with the seasonal flu. In fact Republican governors are also encouraging their states residents to vote by mail.
Thank you. We love our boaters! https://t.co/AhjmAOKfDh— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 25, 2020
Cases, numbers and deaths are going down all over the Country!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 24, 2020
As of today, May 25th, 2020.
According to World O Meter‘s state break downs Florida reported 879 new cases of the coronavirus, with Maryland reporting an increase of 839, while Georgia, one of the earliest states to reopen reported an increase of 419 new cases, while Virginia reported an increase of 1,483 new cases. North Carolina, threatened this morning by President Asshole, reported 600 new cases, while Iowa reported 309 new cases.
*The above does not include all the states that have reported an increase in new coronavirus cases.*
ASAP =’s at earliest fall of 2020, considering that much of the country would start summer vacation this week, if not last week…
Of note from the weekend the President Who Needs a Win Badly, pushed his idea that the G7 summit will take place in D.C., in person, rather than via teleconference as was decided a month ago due to the G7 countries facing their own coronavirus outbreaks.
Having the G7 meeting in Washington is very important for those countries, and the World! https://t.co/tWECoIlu6F— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 25, 2020
Here's Trump's public schedule for tomorrow. I put non-travel items in red. (Public schedules don't include all of a president's activities.) pic.twitter.com/QGceYXXVRn— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) May 25, 2020
As Richard explained in the Owl; The National Moment of Remembrance resolution, passed by congress in 2000, asks each of us to take a little of our time at 3pm (local) on Memorial Day each year “To voluntarily and informally observe in their own way a Moment of remembrance and respect, pausing from whatever they are doing for a moment of silence or listening to ‘Taps’.”
