Trump’s Friday Tweetstorm Was a Textbook Example of How Sad and Pathetic He Is

Donald Trump saying something ridiculous on Twitter isn’t exactly anything new. Anyone who covers or writes about politics could make a career out of keeping up with his asinine ramblings on social media. That being said, while Trump’s Twitter meltdowns aren’t as “shocking” as they once used to be, I still refuse to let his incoherent drivel become normalized.

Let me say this loud and clear: No matter how long he’s in office, we cannot let Donald Trump’s behavior become normal — he is not normal.

And his tweetstorm on Friday serves as more proof of what a deranged, pathologically-lying bottom-feeder he truly is.

Let’s just get right to it:

Sorry, no, Thursday’s vote was not a “big win in the House.” Not only did Trumpcare 3.0 barely pass, Senate Republicans have already said that they’re not even going to vote on that particular bill. The GOP-controlled House passing Trumpcare 3.0 was as much of a “win” as the 60+ votes Republicans held to repeal Obamacare during the Obama administration. All they did was force through a bill that will never be signed into law.

Then there was this nugget:

Nothing like the man who’s on pace to cost taxpayers more in one year on “extracurricular expenses” than we did during Barack Obama’s entire eight years in office tweeting about trying to save the country money. You know what would have saved taxpayers even more money? If he spent the majority of his weekends in Washington D.C., as opposed to traveling to his various homes in Florida and New Jersey. But there I go using common sense again.

I already wrote about the jaw-dropping stupidity of this tweet, but I felt it still should be included in this article, as well:

Yup, two days in a row Trump boasted about Australia, a nation with single-payer, universal health care, having better health care than we do. As I’ve said many times when discussing Trump, you really can’t make this stuff up.

Then we had his usual attacks on the “fake news media”:

No, what the media did was tell the truth about a bill that House Republicans didn’t even release to the public until the very last minute, that barely passed, and that’s already dead-on-arrival in the Senate where GOP lawmakers have said they’re not even going to vote on the House’s bill. As I pointed out earlier, Thursday’s vote was as much of an “accomplishment” as all the other Obamacare repeal votes House Republicans held during the Obama administration which they knew were never going to be signed by the president.

But he wasn’t done whining about the media:

Well, the media doesn’t report that — because it’s not true. The truth is, if Obamacare was really the disaster Trump and Republicans claim it is, then they wouldn’t be struggling so much to repeal it.

Last, but not least, there was this comical tweet:

I remember long… long ago when Trump called the monthly jobs report “fake” and “phony.” And by “long ago” I mean just a few months. It’s amazing how, despite the fact that he hasn’t signed a single major piece of economic legislation, he’s now trying to take credit for the jobs numbers we’re currently seeing that are clearly nothing more than a continuation from the record-setting streak of private sector job growth that began during the Obama administration. This is the “reality” in which Trump and most of his supporters live. A delusional, fact-free existence where they have absolutely no shame in making themselves look like absolute fools.

Friday wasn’t the worst Twitter tantrum Donald Trump has had, but it did serve as another fantastic example of what a buffoon we have currently leading this nation.
