Yesterday Donald Trump spent his press conference sounding half dead, then he abruptly walked out in the middle of it. Last night he bizarrely tweeted “Congratulations AMERICA!” at one in the morning, seemingly unaware that Americans are in no mood to be congratulated on anything. Today he’s simply gone missing.
Trump hasn’t tweeted anything at all so far today. Apparently he’s been stunned, for now at least, into silence. Maybe he has nothing to say because the unemployment numbers, which have skyrocketed into 3.3 million Americans in a week, are just that awful.
Americans are broke. Americans are hurting. Americans are sick. Americans are dying. And we have a President who yells “Congratulations” at us and then disappears. Where did Trump go today? At this point, who cares?
