Trump’s Memorial Day speech to veterans devolves into messy attacks on Pelosi and lies about Dr. Fauci

The President of the United States is not entirely there. The man’s ability to speak coherently and his raw cognitive powers have always been a problem but in recent weeks they’ve gotten worse.

Perhaps it’s the stress of realizing he botched the response to the worst pandemic in living memory or perhaps it’s because he knows he stands little chance of beating Joe Biden in November, but whatever it is his mind is coming apart at the seams.

Today, Trump gave an address to a group of veterans ahead of Memorial Day weekend. What should have been a somber occasion to remember the fallen quickly devolved into the kind of circus we have unfortunately been conditioned to expect every time a microphone is placed in front of our leader.

As he has done repeatedly in the past, Trump took credit for The Veterans’ Access to Care through Choice, Accountability, and Transparency Act of 2014 which—as the year clearly tells you—was actually signed into law by President Obama. Trump is so starved for accomplishments that he’s been reduced to claiming those of his predecessor.

He then tried to blame Obama for not developing testing for COVID-19, a virus that didn’t even exist during his tenure.

Trump also invented a quote from Dr. Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and prominent member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, in a pathetic attempt to make himself look good.

The president went on to ramble about Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), one of his preferred targets in recent days as he has seemingly convinced himself that attacking her will bolster his reelection chance. After throwing out his usual arsenal of lies about Pelosi he accused Democrats of being “sick” and then trailed off as he lost his train of thought.

The entire performance was a travesty, a hodgepodge of self-aggrandizing lies and bizarre tangents that did nothing to honor the fallen and served only to remind the world what an unhinged, confused old man the president is. Every day it becomes clearer how imperative it is that we remove him from office. Vote in November and make sure everyone you know does too.
