It’s Wednesday aka President Starts July having a Twitter Meltdown Day.

For President Starts July having a Twitter Meltdown Day President Tantrum has tweeted 11 times and retweeted 8 times so far.

In his first tweet he responds to a Tuesday tweet from son Eric Trump.

On February 12th, 2020, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was *29,551.
July 1st, 2020, the Dow Jones Industrial Average is 25,983.86.

*CNBC News 02/12/2020.*

*Eric quickly corrects himself. It just made me lol.*

Two minutes later he moves on to five day old news.

June 26th, 2020, TIME reported that the Minneapolis City Council unanimously “approved a radical proposal to change the city charter that would allow the police department to be dismantled, following mass public criticism of law enforcement over the killing of George Floyd.”

They go on to explain; The 12-0 vote is just the first step in a process that faces significant bureaucratic obstacles to make the November ballot, where the city’s voters would have the final say. And it came amid a spate of recent shootings in Minnesota’s largest city that have heightened many citizens’ concerns about talk of dismantling the department.

President Focuses on the Important Issues moves on to thank himself for Fox News TV ratings. He then congratulates Fox & Friends for beating out Morning Joe.

President Denier the Liar moves on to call the Russian placed bounties on the heads of coalition forces and U.S. troops stationed in Afghanistan “Fake News,” meant only to damage him and Republican’s. He also demands the New York Times reveal their sources and finishes off by calling it a “HOAX.”

On June 29th, 2020, the Washington Post reported that Republican lawmakers confirmed “that U.S. intelligence agencies have developed information about a Russian military operation targeting U.S. and allied forces in Afghanistan.”

The Republican lawmakers added, that any U.S. “response should wait until intelligence agencies fully review the material, some of which was shared with members of Congress in a classified briefing at the White House.”

Politico reported on the same day that those Republican lawmakers included; Reps. Mac Thornberry and Michael McCaul, ranking members on the House Armed Services and Foreign Affairs panels, respectively.A mix of other Republicans from those committees — Reps. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.), Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), and Jim Banks (R-Ind.) — also attended. Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah), a member of the House Intelligence Committee and Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), who doesn’t sit on either panel but leads the House Freedom Caucus, were also present.

Democratic lawmakers were briefed on Tuesday by White House officials, including Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.

Full Democratic Tuesday press briefing.

Full Republican Tuesday press briefing.

For what It’s Worth:

One hour after President Denier the Liar called the reporting “Fake News,” it was reported that according to the National Security Advisor Dummy has been briefed on the Russia Bounty Report.

A hour after he called the Russia story a Hoax President Asshole doubles down on calling it a hoax invented to harm him and Republicans.

President Oxygen Sucker brags about an Executive Order that made something already illegal more illegal.

I’ve tried, hard, to figure out how to express myself properly over this tweet. It’s a struggle. I can’t seem to muster any outrage directed at the vandals, I can only stare at this tweet and think, he’s working harder to protect statues than he is the American people, than he is to protect U.S. military troops.

It’s not that I think vandals should be praised as hero’s or that they should not be arrested, they truly should be punished for their crimes.

It’s more to the point that our sitting President seems singularly focused on old stone or bronze artifacts and on how a military base is named going so far as late Tuesday to declare he’d veto the Defense Authorization Bill if it included the renaming of military bases.

Prior to his veto threat tweet, he finally acknowledged the rise in coronavirus cases by expressing his anger at China…it’s not that it’s shocking he does it, it’s just frustrating.

China is not in charge of the U.S. response to the virus outbreak, they did hold back information, sure they did, but our government response is on our government, not on China’s.

In short, while I do feel that vandals are bad guys, not hero’s and that they need to be punished for their crimes, I’m more outraged that he’s calling reports that Russia is paying for the slaughter of American U.S. troops “Fake News,” and “a HOAX.”

This of course is just my opinion. It’s been a very long summer so far and we still have 124 days until November.

President Cry Me a Damn River moves on from vandals to focus on political rival former Vice President Joe Biden.

Hillary Clinton was given in advance one debate question provided to her by former DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile. Brazile was fired for her actions from CNN, whom was co-hosting the debate.

Former Fox News show host *Megyn Kelly wrote in her memoir Settle for More, that Idiot was tipped off to the first debate question from the first Republican Presidential Debate.

*The Hill 11/10/2016.*

Having watched the Biden presser in question I can confirm that Biden had a list of reporters.

And let’s be clear here, generally speaking reporters do inform press secretaries of impending questions by simply calling up and asking for comment.

A real smart press secretary can prepare a candidate or even a President for these questions, by simply reading a newspaper, no need to have a reporter give them the questions in advance.

Given the news of the day, the spike in coronavirus cases and the Russian bounty story, it wouldn’t be hard, in fact, it would incompetent not to prepare some response to those two topics, in advance of presenting the candidate or President to the media.

President More Outrage stokes more outrage.

Maybe our GREAT Police, who have been neutralized and scorned by a mayor who hates & disrespects them, won’t let this symbol of hate be affixed to New York’s greatest street. 

But the confederate flag is part of our heritage. Also it should be noted that I read this portion of the tweet as encouraging cops to be vandals by destroying public property.

The New York Times explains how the $1 billion police cuts as follows–they are canceling plans to hire 1,163 new officers and less than half of the $1 billion in cuts will come; from a budgetary sleight of hand: School safety officers, who are currently under the auspices of the Police Department, will be moved to the authority of the Department of Education, according to three council members familiar with the plan.

President Barely working is having a pressing day as usual…
