It’s been amateur hour at the White House for four long years now ever since Donald J. Trump and his band of misfits landed in Washington, D.C. Trump spoke on Friday in the White House briefing room for an announcement on lowering prescription drug prices. Still, of course, he once again said he won the election. Again. Obviously, nothing could be further from the truth since Joe Biden is now the president-elect and will take the oath of office on January 20th. After that, perhaps Trump can go back to being a beauty pageant barker since America has rejected him — along with MAGA.
Here’s Trump saying he won because apparently, he can’t think of anyone but himself even for a minute.

He also claimed that “you wouldn’t have a vaccine if it weren’t for me for another four years” and accused Pfizer of delaying their announcement about a vaccine breakthrough until after the election to hurt him. It’s all about him. It always is.
And after that, the president did not take any questions. According to CNN’s Kaitlan Collins, Trump hasn’t taken a question from a reporter in seventeen days. And frankly, I’m not sure if that’s a good or a bad thing at this point.
President Trump hasn’t answered a question from reporters in 17 days.

Earlier today, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany tried to deride Collins for asking a simple question, calling her an “activist.” Of course, there’s nothing wrong with being an activist, but Collins was doing her job by asking questions, whereas McEnany wasn’t doing her job by not answering questions.
Trump seems scared to me. Trump owes $1 billion, and half of that is to be paid at the start of 2021. The grift is over, and Trump will no longer have the presidency to protect him when investigations and lawsuits pile up. And some of Trump’s creditors could be anyone — it’s just not clear. Including foreign entities. The so-called ‘law and order’ president will soon learn that committing crimes comes with consequences. So, yeah, I wouldn’t say much either if I was him right now. But, while he gives himself credit for the vaccine, he’s been MIA as a president while the coronavirus took over two hundred and fifty thousand American lives. What a disgrace.
