Trump just antagonized the 2020 Dems with a convoluted tweet attacking Obama


Donald Trump is already shifting into reelection mode ahead of 2020 but since we won’t have a Democratic nominee for some time still, there is no single target for him to focus his attention on. Instead, he’s taken to lobbing sporadic insults and lies at random members of the Democratic field.

This morning, he took to Twitter to once again attack Bernie Sanders, saying that his campaign is “history” before moving on to childishly mock former Vice President Joe Biden as “Sleepy Joe.” Why he chose “sleepy” as a descriptor is unclear, given that Biden doesn’t have reputation for being particularly tired and is, in fact, a far healthier, energetic looking man than Trump.

Trump then seemed to insinuate that the only reason he is president in the first place is because of backlash against the Obama administration which Biden was, of course, a major figure in. He said that “President O” took Biden off the 1% trash heap, a nonsensical phrase. The entire tweet is incredibly convoluted and a reminder that our president isn’t the most articulate of men.

It’s also worth noting that it probably isn’t a great idea to be bringing up Biden’s association with Obama, given the fact that the former president is still incredibly popular. It’s very likely this sort of attack could backfire on Trump.

The tweet ends with an assertion that China wants Biden to be elected president. The irony of Donald Trump — the man who was foisted into the Oval Office in large part due to the actions of a foreign country — attacking a Democrat for being allegedly favored by a different foreign country cannot be overstated. In reality, there is no evidence that China wants to get Biden elected. It’s just yet another lie made up by President Trump and blasted out as if it’s a fact.

You can’t trust anything that comes out of this man’s mouth, and that goes double for anything he tweets.
