Here’s how you know Donald Trump has figured out that he’s not going to get his way on the latest stimulus bill: he’s now whining and crying like a baby about Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, because he knows they’ve once again largely gotten the best of him.
First Trump tweeted this tantrum: “Pelosi & Schumer blocked desperately needed unemployment payments, which is so terrible, especially since they fully understand that it was not the workers fault that they are unemployed, it’s the fault of China!” To be clear, that’s a lie about Pelosi, that’s a racist remark about China, and Trump left out an apostrophe somewhere in there.
Then Trump tweeted this crybaby followup: “Pelosi & Schumer have no interest in making a deal that is good for our Country and our People. All they want is a trillion dollars, and much more, for their Radical Left Governed States, most of which are doing very badly. It is called a BAILOUT for many years of bad Dem Mgmt!” Okay, we’re not even sure what he’s talking about with this one. Imagine being this far removed from reality.
By the time Donald Trump went for Round Three by falsely claiming that Schumer blocked unemployment payments, we’d lost interest. It’s clear that Trump knows he’s been bested again. He tried to push a corrupt bill, but Pelosi and Schumer have forced the Senate GOP to go along with something that helps the people. Trump ended his meltdown by tweeting “DRAIN THE SWAMP ON NOVEMBER 3RD!” Yep, we’ll do that by voting Trump out in record numbers.
