It’s Wednesday.

President Fox & Friends Biggest Fan has tweeted 10 times so far for Wednesday.

For his first tweet he blasts former Vice President Joe Biden for making campaign promises but not getting anything done.

During 2016 then-candidate Trump promised to cut our debt in 8 years. As the balance reported on July 1st, 2020, his proposed budgets would actually add $8.3 trillion. That would increase the U.S. debt to 28.5 trillion at the end of 8 years.

*From the balance.com.

National Debt Since Trump Took Office.
At first, it seemed Trump was lowering the debt. It fell $102 billion in the first six months after Trump took office. On January 20th, the day Trump was inaugurated, the debt was $19.9 trillion. On July 30, it was $19.8 trillion. But it was not because of anything he did. Instead, it was because of the federal debt ceiling.

On September 8, 2017, Trump signed a bill increasing the debt ceiling. Later that day, the debt exceeded $20 trillion for the first time in U.S. history. On February 9, 2018, Trump signed a bill suspending the debt ceiling until March 1, 2019. It leapt to $22 trillion. In July 2019, Trump suspended the debt ceiling until after the 2020 presidential election. The debt soon rose to $23 trillion. Trump has overseen the fastest increase in the debt of any president.

Trump’s Fiscal Year 2021 budget projects the debt would increase $4.8 trillion during his first term.

*for those interested I rec’., clicking the link, the site provides footnotes that cannot be copied and pasted correctly to explain where they collected their figures from.*

2016 candidate Trump promised Mexico was going to pay for the wall. In January of 2019 while speaking to reporters outside the White House he said, “When during the campaign I would say Mexico is going to pay for it. Obviously, I never said this and I never meant they were going to write out a check, I said they were going to pay for it–they are–they are paying for it with the incredible deal we made called the United States, Mexico, and Canada, USMCA deal.”

At the 30 second mark, Global News offers a montage of all those times campaign Trump said Mexico was going to pay for the wall.

Now This posted a video of all those times candidate Trump and businessman Trump talked about releasing his tax returns on April 14th, 2019.

Fast Forward to the current crisis of the coronavirus as President he said the virus was going to go away, at least 13 times starting in February 2020 all the way until April 29th, 2020.

This is the problem with a current sitting President trying to whataboutism his or her political rival, especially in Trump’s case, he has made so many promises–promises that have resulted in zero results.

He continues campaign much like he did yesterday under the guise of a Presidential press conference held from the White House.

Has anybody seen or reviewed the written “pact” between Bernie Sanders & Sleepy Joe…[in the same tweet] Joe never told us this…

How can we see or review something which is online here, if Joe never told us this? [the link joebiden.com/wp.]

I have not had the chance to read the linked 110 page unity task force recommendations, but CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale has offered a fact-check on Trump’s Campaign Managers Brad Parscale’s tweet.

We believe detention should be a last resort, not the default. Democrats will prioritize investments in more effective and cost-efficient community-based alternatives to detention. We will end for-profit detention centers and ensure that any facility where migrants are being
detained is held to the highest standards of care and guarantees the safety and dignity of families. Detention of children should be restricted to the shortest possible time, with their access to education and proper care ensured.

President No Ethics involves himself in spat between consumers and a private business.

5 days ago…

President Unethical’s tweet follows that of his daughter a non-paid [to avoid the federal reg., banning family from working for us] Presidential advisor posting this tweet.

This truly is the stupidest time to be alive…

President Who Can’t Mind His Own Business moves away from consumer company feuds to focus on the important issues facing our nation…

That’s right, he wants praise for endorsing Republican candidates and those Republican candidates winning primaries!

President Give Me Credit Damn It!, praises his approval rating among Republicans.

Gallup.com as of June 8th-June 30th has Credit Seeker’s Republican approval at 91 percent.

Real Clear Politics has Presidential average approval at 41.9 percent from June 26th to July 14th, 2020.

Real Clear Politics.

He moves on to mention the great news about vaccines.

CNN reported on Wednesday that according to Moderna phase 1 of the covid-19 vaccine has been found to induce immune responses in all the volunteers who received it.

The company announced their progress with phase 1/phase 2 in a press release on Tuesday. They also explained that the phase 3 study is expected to start around July 27th. The trial will include 30,000 participants.

Also noted in their press release ” With the Phase 3 dose being finalized at 100 μg, the Company remains on track to be able to deliver approximately 500 million doses per year, and possibly up to 1 billion doses per year, beginning in 2021 from the Company’s internal U.S. manufacturing site and strategic collaboration with Lonza.”

After President Pollyanna’s great news tweet he switches gears to focus on the internal staffing issues with the New York Times.

New York Times editor and opinion writer Bari Weiss on Tuesday resigned from the New York Times explaining in her nearly 1,500 worded letter to Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger that she has suffered “constant bullying by colleagues who disagree with my views. They have called me a Nazi and a racist; I have learned to brush off comments about how I’m “writing about the Jews again.” Several colleagues perceived to be friendly with me were badgered by coworkers. My work and my character are openly demeaned on company-wide Slack channels where masthead editors regularly weigh in. There, some coworkers insist I need to be rooted out if this company is to be a truly “inclusive” one, while others post ax emojis next to my name. Still other New York Times employees publicly smear me as a liar and a bigot on Twitter with no fear that harassing me will be met with appropriate action. They never are.”

She goes on to say she doesn’t understand how Sulzberger has “allowed this kind of behavior to go on inside your company in full view of the paper’s entire staff and the public. And I certainly can’t square how you and other Times leaders have stood by while simultaneously praising me in private for my courage. Showing up for work as a centrist at an American newspaper should not require bravery.”

Sulzberger declined to comment for the story covered by the New York Times, but Eileen Murphy a Times spokeswoman said, “We’re committed to fostering an environment of honest, searching and empathetic dialogue between colleagues, one where mutual respect is required of all.”

President Attention Span of a Gnat moves back to blasting political rival Joe Biden, twice.

From the Unity Recommendations:

Charter schools were originally intended to be publicly funded schools with increased flexibility in program design and operations. Democrats believe that education is a public good and should not be saddled with a private profit motive, which is why we will ban for-profit private charter businesses from receiving federal funding.

And we recognize the need for more stringent guardrails to ensure charter schools are good stewards of federal education funds. We support measures to increase accountability for charter schools, including by requiring all charter school to meet the same standards of transparency as traditional public schools, including with regard to
civil rights protections, racial equity, admissions practices, disciplinary procedures, and school finances. We will call for conditioning federal funding for new, expanded charter schools or for charter school renewals on a district’s review of whether the charter will systematically
underserve the neediest students. And Democrats oppose private school vouchers and other policies that divert taxpayer-funded resources away from the public school system.

Abolish [using the find word feature on Chrome given my time issues] appears 3 times inside the linked PDF.

Death Penalty: Abolish the death penalty at the federal level, and incentivize states to follow the federal government’s example.

Prison Workers: Abolish forced and exploitative labor in prison. Ensure enforcement of health and safety laws.

Juvenile Sentencing Reform: Abolish life without parole for juveniles.

The new slogan from President Not the Underdog in this Election But He’s Going to Act Like it Anyway appears to be “No one will be SAFE in Joe Biden’s America!”

He first floated the new slogan, kind of, shortly after his failed campaign rally hosted in our Rose Garden.

President Campaigner attempts to appear Presidential in his next two tweets.

According to Twitter Translate the second tweet is just a copy of the first tweet in a foreign language.

The New York Times reported on Wednesday that “Iranians from all walks of life — teachers, doctors, designers, cooks, actors, directors, artists, homemakers, bloggers — have taken to social media with a message for the government: Stop the executions.”

The online campaign which took place on Tuesday had analysts saying the event was remarkable for “its scope and the breadth of its support, was in response to the judiciary’s announcement earlier in the day that it had upheld the death sentences of three young men who joined antigovernment protests in November.”

Last year Iran reportedly put to death 251 people more than any country but China, “according to Amnesty International. In recent weeks, many Iranians have been rattled by a series of executions based on murky charges, from drinking alcohol to political activism to allegedly spying for the C.I.A.”


President Real Busy is expected to start Infrastructure week live at 3:10 p.m. D.C. time, from Atlanta, GA.
