Donald Trump goes from one mad display of pique to another at such a rate these days, that at this point it’s more or less blended into a background noise of quiet roar and constant hysteria from the White House. He blew another gasket on Sunday night, after watching Dr. Rick Bright’s interview on 60 Minutes. Why that interview threw him for a loop is anybody’s guess, because it was actually pretty benign. Bright said that there was a lot of chaos in the administration and that the coronavirus response lacked leadership from the top and these are scarcely new or inflammatory ideas. Nevertheless, Trump flew into a rage and picked up his tweet box. ….spews lies. @60Minutes report was incorrect, which they couldn’t care less about. Fake News! I don’t know this guy, never met him, but don’t like what I see. How can a creep like this show up to work tomorrow & report to @SecAzar, his boss, after trashing him on T.V.?…. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 18, 2020 Who says Bright’s showing up to work for Azar tomorrow? Doesn’t Trump get it, that the guy got fired for refusing to go along with hydroxycloroquine as the miracle drug that Trump was touting it to be? Then Trump asked Susan Collins to save the day. ….This whole Whistleblower racket needs to be looked at very closely, it is causing great injustice & harm. I hope you are listening @SenSusanCollins I also hope that Shari Redstone will take a look at her poorly performing gang. She knows how to make things right! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 18, 2020 Now we know, whistle blowing is a “racket.” Yeah, I guess in a well run crime family, such a thing wouldn’t be allowed. That makes sense. Maybe Susan Collins will have an idea on how to rub ’em all out, we’ll have to wait and see. Shari Redstone, FYI, is a CBS executive, so presumably she’s supposed to get only people Trump likes on the tube. “How to make things right” sounds like mob speak as well. Here is the 60 Minutes piece which caused all the furor. Maybe you can figure out why. There isn’t one word here that we haven’t heard before. Surely none of this can be new information to Donald Trump?

If conservatives support police killing citizens without justification, climate denial, fact denial, science denial, racist and misogynistic behavior, or a litany of other absurd points of view about numerous important issues, we call them out.
