Donald Trump has had three and a half years to figure out a viable reelection strategy. It’s now clear that he doesn’t have one, and won’t have one, so he’s simply throwing things at the wall. Trump is also going increasingly senile, so he’s no longer even sure what his own script is at this point.
Instead Trump just keeps yelling the word “Obamagate” as if it means something, even though when he’s asked about it, he gives away that even he has no idea what he’s talking about. Tonight Trump simply tweeted “OBAMAGATE!” – in a sign that he really does have no idea how to frame this. The responses were anything but kind:
#ObamaGate Is nothing more than another chapter of the obsession of a white supremacist president using his hand picked, sycophantic, racist, attorney general, in his sick vendetta against a Black man for having the audacity to be smarter than him and to be elected POTUS.

Get real, Dotard, I know of all of your illegal activities, & you know that I know that.

While you tweeted this nonsense, someone was dying from the corona virus and a few thousands people lost their job. All because of your incompetence.
Worst Death Toll.
