Trump pushes McConnell to play partisan political games rather than deal with coronavirus crisis

Donald Trump is so busy with handling the coronavirus pandemic and the concomitant economic collapse that he has sworn off Twitter as a waste of his precious time that is distracting him from his more important duties.

Well, if Trump can continually engage in magical thinking and promote completely untrue versions of reality, why can’t we?

The actual truth of the matter is that the president spent his entire morning so far on the social media platform — tweeting and retweeting over 50 posts — too deep a well to even consider plunging into fully.

Let’s concentrate instead on his most recent two posts since they reveal so much about Trump’s severely vindictive personality and his strategy to keep his seat in the White House and postpone his inevitable prosecution for his multiplicity of wrongdoings.

The first of these consisted of the president’s comments on a tweet from Mollie Hemingway, the senior editor of the right-wing website The Federalist, who reminds her readers how essential Trump is to the Republican strategy to pack the courts with conservative allies that will be able to slow or reverse any progressive legislation that a future Democratic majority may want to pass.

Add your name to reject Trump & Republicans’ vile idea of sacrificing seniors’ lives to save the stock market!

Trump pretends that the GOP hasn’t been the party playing hardball since Obama first took office, but that’s just a minor fallacy compared to the Republican elephant in the room: his continued insistence that the Russian interference in the 2016 election to help him get elected is a politically-motivated “hoax” rather than a fact established by both the entire intelligence community and the GOP-controlled Senate Intelligence Committee.

The truth is that the Republicans have never played by the same rules as the Democrats. They have played much dirtier while the Dems abide by principles that often hinder them from achieving their political goals.

If the Republicans actually did play by the same rules as the Democrats, they surely would have expelled by now several congress members whose ethical lapses make the sex scandals that brought down former Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) and former Senator Al Franken (D-MN) seem trivial by comparison, not to mention the fact that those rules would have required a unanimous vote to expel Trump from office during the Senate impeachment trial.

Trump was obviously scanning The Federalist‘s Twitter feed this morning rather than the latest COVID-19 death tallies, since the next post he retweeted with his own comments came from the website’s co-founder, “chainsaw bayonet enthusiast” Sean Davis.

It was essentially a repeat of the themes of his previous tweet — that Senate Majority Leader McConnell should force the Senate to open an investigation into the origins of the investigations of Russian collusion begun during the Obama presidency.

As usual, Trump reverses the accusations made about his own criminal behavior and bounces them back against his accusers.

It is Trump, not the Democrats, who was vicious and got caught.

It is Trump, not the Democrats, who is responsible for the medical crisis and economic disaster stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic and “MUST pay a big price” for what he has done and failed to do.

We can’t let him get away with this!

For once the president did include one truth in his tweet.

Time is running out! Our time to ensure that Trump is removed from office as soon as possible and his time in the White House are both shrinking rapidly.

The only time not running out currently is the time we need to stay at home and stay safe until the dangers of the still spreading coronavirus ebb.

With the president spending his time on social media playing political games, that time seems like it will simply keep extending for those who care about their own health and the health of others.
