Apparently mistaking Easter Sunday for the fictional holiday of Festivus from the sitcom Seinfeld, President Donald Trump spent the day airing grievances against a variety of targets.
A sample of Trump’s tweets on the holy day attacked the media and Democrats while deflecting blame for his delayed response to the Covid-19 pandemic:
“Just watched Mike Wallace wannabe, Chris Wallace, on @FoxNews. I am now convinced that he is even worse than Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd of Meet the Press (please!), or the people over at Deface the Nation. What the hell is happening to @FoxNews. It’s a whole new ballgame over there!”
“The @nytimes story is a Fake, just like the ‘paper’ itself. I was criticized for moving too fast when I issued the China Ban, long before most others wanted to do so. @SecAzar told me nothing until later, and Peter Navarro memo was same as Ban (see his statements). Fake News!”
“The Opposition Party (Lamestream Media) and their partner, the Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats, have put their political game plan in full swing. ‘Whether he is right or wrong, it doesn’t matter. Criticize Trump for everything, and don’t let the public see Biden. Hide him.'”
“If the Fake News Opposition Party is pushing, with all their might, the fact that President Trump “ignored early warnings about the threat,” then why did Media & Dems viciously criticize me when I instituted a Travel Ban on China? They said “early & not necessary.” Corrupt Media!”
“Great businessman & philanthropist Bernie Marcus, Co-Founder of Home Depot, said that Congress was too distracted by the (phony) Impeachment Witch Hunt when they should have been investigating CoronaVirus when it first appeared in China. Media played a big roll also!@dcexaminer”
And, “I am working hard to expose the corruption and dishonesty in the Lamestream Media. That part is easy, the hard part is WHY?”
The president also retweeted a call for the firing of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the widely respected head of his Covid-19 task force, after Fauci acknowledged that lives could have been saved if the pandemic had been more aggressively addressed earlier.
Meanwhile, Trump praised the One America News Network, known for its extreme right wing bias, promotion of debunked conspiracy theories, and owner-mandated promotion of President Trump.
Reached for comment at the White House, Trump complained, “Why does everything bad have to happen to me? I’ve suffered more than anyone, okay? I’ve suffered, folks, believe me. No one’s suffered more than me, that I can tell you.”
