It’s Monday.

President Sad Sack has tweeted 12 times and retweeted 1 time so far for Monday.

In his first Monday tweet issued at 12:07 a.m. D.C. time, President Pathetic, pushed on with his chaotic campaign messaging by promoting Fox News, twice, again.

12:14 a.m. D.C. time.

He continues to campaign with his 3rd tweet for Monday sent @ 12:34 a.m., this time showing support for freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to challenge Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) for his Senate seat…

According to the linked article from the Washington Times, liberals “are kicking around,” the idea that AOC “could launch,” a primary challenge against Schumer in 2022.

The main source for the article posted on Sunday June 21st, was a tweet thread issued on June 15th, by former Democratic Presidential hopeful Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), campaign manager David Sirota.

Sticking with using the Washington Times as a source he blasts New York Mayor Bill de Blasio @ 12:39 a.m..

The American Museum of Natural History in a memo to staff posted here, explained that the Equestrian Statue, “that sits on New York City public park land in front of the Museum’s Central Park West entrance is part of the New York State memorial to Theodore Roosevelt, who served as Governor of New York State before becoming the 26th President of the United States. The Statue has long been controversial because of the hierarchical composition that places one figure on horseback and the others walking alongside, and many of us find its depictions of the Native American and African figures and their placement in the monument racist.”

They go on to explain that between 2017-2018, the Mayoral Advisory Commission on City Art, Monuments, and Markers, had considered whether to move the Statue, but the Commission was unable to reach a consensus. The result was the city had directed the Museum to leave the Statue in place.

This action prompted the Museum in 2019 to open an exhibition called Addressing the Statue, which offered a history of the Statue along with contemporary reactions to it.

We are proud of that work, which helped advance our and the public’s understanding of the Statue and its history and promoted dialogue about important issues of race and cultural representation, but in the current moment, it is abundantly clear that this approach is not sufficient.

In response to the Museum’s continued request of the city, which owns the statue, to allow it’s removal, Mayor of New York Bill de Blasio said in a statement; The American Museum of Natural History has asked to remove the Theodore Roosevelt statue because it explicitly depicts Black and Indigenous people as subjugated and racially inferior. The City supports the Museum’s request. It is the right decision and the right time to remove this problematic statue.

AMNH quotes Theodore Roosevelt IV the great-grandson of President Theodore Roosevelt and Museum as saying in regards to the removal of his great-grand fathers statue, “The world does not need statues, relics of another age, that reflect neither the values of the person they intend to honor nor the values of equality and justice. The composition of the Equestrian Statue does not reflect Theodore Roosevelt’s legacy. It is time to move the Statue and move forward.”

AMNH says that they will continue to be the official site of the New York State’s memorial to Theodore Roosevelt.

The Museum will remain the site of New York State’s official memorial to Theodore Roosevelt. The Roosevelt Family has a long association with the Museum, beginning with the President’s father and continuing with his great-grandson, Theodore Roosevelt IV, who serves as a Museum Trustee. And, in honor of Theodore Roosevelt’s role as a leading conservationist, the Museum’s Hall of Biodiversity will be named for him.

In my opinion having read the statement from the AMHN, to me, it’s truly none of President Nosy Neighbor’s business what the city does with a statue the city owns.

President Gladys Kravitz concludes his after midnight tweeting to explain once again that it’s not that the U.S. has a lot of American’s infected with the coronavirus, it’s that we test more than anyone else “that makes us look like we have more cases…”

On Saturday during a campaign rally event, in Tulsa, OK., in which nobody came, President Who Always says the Quiet Part Out Loud told the 6,000 plus attendees that he had ordered his people to “slow the testing down.”

In the same clip he also throws a bone to his tin-foil hat wearing supporters that believe the cases of the coronavirus infectious rates and deaths are inflated by telling a story about a 10 year-old with a “case of the sniffles,” who will recover in 15 minutes but be counted as a “case.”

The White House issued a statement calling the statements by President Messy regarding the coronavirus testing a “joke.”

Speaker of the House Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) issued a statement on Sunday.

Pelosi also notes that on Tuesday members of the Trump Administration’s coronavirus task force are scheduled to testify “before the Energy & Commerce committee.  The American people are owed answers about why President Trump wants less testing when experts say much more is needed.”

She concluded by writing, “The President is ethically unfit and intellectually unprepared to lead.  Senator McConnell must stop obstructing The Heroes Act and the life-saving testing resources it provides.”

President Throws Everyone Under the Bus on Monday explained that his comment was regarding how advanced we are in testing.

President Gaslighter starts tweeting again @ 7:10 a.m. D.C. time, in where he attempts to cast doubts on the upcoming Presidential election, in three separate tweets.

7:16 a.m. D.C. time..

9:45 a.m. D.C. time, [he issues only one tweet in between 7:16 a.m. and 9:45 a.m. D.C. time.]

Full Disclosure I have voted by mail in CA, since 1992.

President Doubt Caster paused in his doubt casting to blast former National Security Advisor John Bolton.

On Saturday a long shot DOJ attempt to prevent Bolton’s book from being sold on Tuesday, was rejected by a U.S. District Court Judge who wrote, “While Bolton’s unilateral conduct raises grave national security concerns, the government has not established that an injunction is an appropriate remedy.”

In his conclusion U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth writes:

Order from U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth. 06/20/2020. (pg. 10)

For his next trick President Dopey unwittingly confirms a part of Bolton’s book that President Dopey calls “lies and a work of fiction.”

Axios reported that in Bolton’s book The Room Where it Happened, that President Who Talks to Himself called Juan Guaidó, the U.S. recognized leader of Venezuela weak, compared to Venezuela Dictator Nicolás Maduro, who he viewed as strong. [Yeah, it’s totally not believable President I Love Dictators said any of this below:]

“By spring, Trump was calling Guaidó the ‘Beto O’Rourke of Venezuela,’ hardly the sort of compliment an ally of the United States should expect.”

It was far from helpful but typical of how Trump carelessly defamed those around him, as when he began blaming me for the opposition’s failure to overthrow Maduro.

Axios. 06/21/2020.

In an interview with Axios President Who Undermines his Own Administration officials explains was asked if he would meet with Maduro to which they were told, “I would maybe think about that,” adding, “Maduro would like to meet and I’m never opposed to meetings–you know, rarely opposed to meetings.”

Why it matters: If Trump meets with Maduro, it would completely upend his administration’s policy on Venezuela. Top administration officials, including Vice President Pence and Secretary of State Pompeo, have invested a huge amount of energy in supporting Guaidó.
And in March, Attorney General Bill Barr announced that the Justice Department was charging Maduro with narcoterrorism. The DOJ press release announcing the charges referred to him as the “Former President of Venezuela.”

President Who Did Not Get the Audience Love on Saturday He’d Hoped For, pushes two clips, one in which he says, “I’ve done more for the black the community.”

In his second clip he explains that the constitutional protected protest via burning the American Flag, should not be protected instead these constitutional protected individuals should receive a year in jail.

We can disagree whether it’s right or wrong, morally speaking to burn the American Flag, something done when an American Flag is ripped or being retired, however, what is not up for debate is whether or not they have a constitutional right to burn the American flag as a form of protest. They do. It’s that simple.

As if Presidential tweeting his hopes that the Constitution is violated wasn’t enough for this Monday, our latest Press Liar Kayleigh McEnany added a press briefing to her busy busy schedule to take place at 1 p.m. D.C., time.

I imagine she’ll be late, she’ll lie and say it was radical left wingers that prevented folks from attending the highly successful MAGA/KAG campaign rally on Saturday. She’ll demand to know how come the media isn’t more outraged that protesters stopped Trump Supporters from showing their love and support.

She’ll go on about how President Joke Teller was only joking about the coronavirus testing being slowed down and it’s funny how the media can’t seem to take his jokes because they hate him so much.
