It’s Monday.

There are 105 days until the Presidential Election. (November 3rd, 2020).

There are 183 days until the Presidential Inauguration. (January 20th, 2021).

With 105 days to go before the next Presidential Election President Super Duper Cry Baby has tweeted 1 time and retweeted 1 time so far for Monday.

In his first and only tweet he congratulated former Florida Republican Congressmen Allen West for becoming the Texas GOP Chairman.

The Texas Tribune reported on Monday that West defeated Chairman James Dickey early Monday with West claiming victory around 3:30 a.m. Texas time and Dickey conceding to West about an hour later.

West’s victory came amid a tumultuous convention that had unraveled on Dickey’s watch. There was so much dysfunction and delay that delegates voted late Sunday night to take up unfinished business at a second convention — after settling party leadership races.

Texas Tribune. 07/20/2020.

West has promised to “make the party better known nationally and adopt a more aggressive strategy against what he described as an increasingly extreme Democratic Party.”

President Struggling retweeted West’s tweet shortly after he offered his congratulations over the same West tweet.

Friday President Unfocused tweeted 9 times and retweeted *48 times.

*the 48 retweets came in roughly an hour, starting as news broke that Rep. John Lewis had died of cancer*

Saturday President Golfer tweeted 2 times and retweeted 8 times.

Sunday President Gives No Shits about Anything, but Himself tweeted 5 times and retweeted himself once.


Friday evening President Victim finally responded to his niece Mary Trump’s book by whining about the book.

Nothing says “family love,” more than a non-disclosure agreement!

CNN reported on July 7th that Mary Trump in her tell-all book Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Dangerous Man, revealed that she was a source for the New York Times piece published in October of 2018 which alleged that President Always Under Audit engaged in suspected tax schemes.

CNN reached out to the Times to confirm Trump’s account in her book, but a spokesperson did not respond to CNN’s request.

To defend his Fear-Mongering ways President If They Won’t Like Me, I’ll Make them Fear Me explained that former Vice President and current Democratic Nominee for President Joe Biden really does want to defund the police even though he used different words.

The reason Fear-monger explained that what Biden really means is, is because during an interview with Fox News Sunday show host Chris Wallace, Wallace corrected him about what doesn’t appear in the Unity Recommendations Biden and Senator from Vermont Bernie Sanders agreed to.

On Saturday Our White House resident Golfer hit the links.

For those in different time zones the tweet was posted at 9:59 a.m. D.C. time.

Democratic Congressman John Lewis passed away on Friday July 17th, 2020, losing his battle with cancer. He was 80 years old.

The Press Lying Liar that lies, offered a tweet at 9:33 a.m. D.C. time., Sciutto might not call that an actual statement but as we know tweets from the admin are considered official statements, mostly.

Former President Obama offered his statement on Friday.

Biden offered his on Saturday.

Former President George Bush offered his statement on Saturday morning.

At around 2 in the afternoon on Saturday the current President offered his own thoughts on the passing of Lewis.

The second tweet from Saturday was removed following a copyright complaint.

According to The Hill the tweet in question was a campaign video shared by White House aide Dan Scavino which included music from band Linkin Park.

On Sunday morning President Good Cognitive issued an incomplete tweet only to remove the tweet in question giving him a total of 4 tweets.

He never reissued that tweet replacing it with this one, I assume.

On Thursday Oregon Public Broadcasting ( published an article that explained how the Federal government was using unmarked vehicles to grab protesters off the streets in Portland, Oregon.

From the article:

In the early hours of July 15, after a night spent protesting at the Multnomah County Justice Center and Mark O. Hatfield Federal Courthouse, Mark Pettibone and his friend Conner O’Shea decided to head home.

I see guys in camo,” O’Shea said. “Four or five of them pop out, open the door and it was just like, ‘Oh shit. I don’t know who you are or what you want with us.’”
Federal law enforcement officers have been using unmarked vehicles to drive around downtown Portland and detain protesters since at least July 14. Personal accounts and multiple videos posted online show the officers driving up to people, detaining individuals with no explanation of why they are being arrested, and driving off.

Officers from the U.S. Marshals Special Operations Group and Customs and Border Protection’s BORTAC, have been sent to Portland to protect federal property during the recent protests against racism and police brutality.
But interviews conducted by OPB show officers are also detaining people on Portland streets who aren’t near federal property, nor is it clear that all of the people being arrested have engaged in criminal activity. Demonstrators like O’Shea and Pettibone said they think they were targeted by federal officers for simply wearing black clothing in the area of the demonstration. 07/17/2020.

O’Shea hid from federal authorities while Pettibone says he was tossed into a van where he had his beanie pulled over his face so he couldn’t see, he added that his hands were held over his head. Once he was removed from the van, Pettibone explained the process:

It was basically a process of facing many walls and corners as they patted me down and took my picture and rummaged through my belongings. One of them said, ‘This is a whole lot of nothing.’ 07/17/2020.

Pettibone goes on to explain that he was placed inside a cell where two officers read him his rights, asked if he wanted to waive his rights, Pettibone declined and requested a lawyer. The interview ended and about 90 minutes later Pettibone was released. According to Pettibone he received no paperwork, citation, or a record of his arrest.

After his release Pettibone learned he’d been held in a federal building.

Acting Department of Homeland Security Chad Wolf defended federal authority action on Friday.

He double-downed on Monday morning.

His comments come in response to Oregon’s Leadership demanding the Federal authorities depart Portland.

President Wannabe Tyrant said on Monday according to CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale…

He shared similar thoughts on Sunday via tweet.

On Monday President Asshole doubled-down.

FYI: He’s nuts as fuck.

His statements regarding cracking down on city civil unrest came just after he announced the return of the daily coronavirus task force propaganda rallies starting tomorrow at 5 p.m. D.C. time.

He says in the clip they might return this afternoon, but probably tomorrow, because they were giving him good ratings.

Thus ends Weekend Tweeting with Trump…

So far via the White House website there are no scheduled live events for Monday.

This post might be updated.

This is an Open Thread.
