Over the past week Donald Trump has vowed to leave the country if he loses the election, threatened to shave his head, and begun awkwardly dancing on stage at random. The guy is completely unraveling, even by his standards. Now he’s waging war on Dr. Anthony Fauci, and in the latest sign of how far gone Trump is, he’s bringing the late Bob Hope into it. Trump tweeted this:
Dr.Tony Fauci says we don’t allow him to do television, and yet I saw him last night on @60Minutes, and he seems to get more airtime than anybody since the late, great, Bob Hope. All I ask of Tony is that he make better decisions. He said “no masks & let China in”. Also, Bad arm! P.S. Tony should stop wearing the Washington Nationals’ Mask for two reasons. Number one, it is not up to the high standards that he should be exposing. Number two, it keeps reminding me that Tony threw out perhaps the worst first pitch in the history of Baseball!
Wait a minute… what? Donald Trump can’t possibly think he has anything to gain by publicly waging war with the popular and respected Dr. Fauci. Also, why is Trump using Bob Hope as an example of someone who’s frequently on television? For a guy who watches television all day instead of doing his job, you’d think Trump could have come up with a more recent example. And attacking the seventy-nine year old Fauci over his pitching arm is just stupid. Trump isn’t even trying to win at this point.
