Trump complains his national pandemic briefings are for “$FREE” in brag about ratings

Not even the outbreak of a deadly pandemic can dissuade Trump from his ugly partisan mudslinging. This morning, the president took to Twitter to attack the “Radical Left Democrats,” once again relying on the incredibly lazy shorthand he uses for his political opponents to avoid having to construct any kind of genuine criticism.


Trump claimed that Dems have “gone absolutely crazy” over his “Presidential News Conferences.” While liberals have most certainly not gone “absolutely crazy” in response to the president’s regularly incoherent coronavirus press conferences, the president himself seems to be becoming increasingly unraveled.

Events which should offer him the opportunity to assure the country that his administration is doing everything to fight the pandemic are now little more than excuses for him to scream at reporters and unconvincingly insist that he’s doing a great job leading the country.

Add your name to reject Trump & Republicans’ vile idea of sacrificing seniors’ lives to save the stock market!

The president went on to criticize Democrats for wanting him to stop giving the conferences and accused them of hypocrisy since they previously pointed out he wasn’t “doing enough.” Of course, even with these deranged circuses that he passes off as press conferences, Trump still isn’t doing enough. His handling of this crisis has been completely botched from the beginning with his decision to dismiss the virus as a hoax. The country would be far better served if he stayed away from the cameras and relied on experts to instruct the public.

One tweet wasn’t enough for our venting child of a president, so he followed it up immediately with another tweet, this one bragging about how ratings for news stations carrying his conferences are “through the roof,” an incredibly calloused observation to make while people are dying en masse all across the country.

It’s not the first time he’s bragged about these numbers, but this time he actually complained that networks are getting these ratings from him for “$FREE” which would seem to indicate that the president wishes he could be making money off this lethal, ongoing disaster. If it wasn’t clear before: Donald Trump quite literally does not care if you or your loved ones live or die.
