Trump Interrupts His Sunday Presser To Play A Video Of Andrew Cuomo Praising Him

What a little man.

Donald Trump once again displayed why networks are cutting away from his appearances in the coronavirus task force briefings as he uses the pandemic to turn the pressers into MAGA rallies. While Trump brags about himself during the daily briefings, over forty-one thousand Americans have lost their lives from the COVID-19 disease that the president failed to act on when he first learned of a looming pandemic in November.

Trump has said some genuinely jaw-dropping things during his daily briefings, and on Twitter, too, from boasting about Wall Street market gains after he helped crash the Dow, to touting the number of Facebook followers he has. It’s all about him, not the millions of Americans who have suddenly lost their jobs while self-quarantining to flatten the coronavirus curve.

The former frozen steak salesman interrupted his infomercial briefing twice; the first time, Trump just wanted us to know that the Wall Street Journal said something that wasn’t mean to him.

“It was hard to get it aroused. And it is hard to get it aroused. But we got it aroused,” Trump said while reading the op-ed.


And for Trump’s next trick, he wants us all to know that NY Governor Andrew Cuomo said nice things about him, too.


And then this happened:

Earlier this week, Cuomo responded to a reporter after Trump unleashed some mean-girl tweets amid the pandemic to target the NY Governor. Trump said Cuomo “should spend more time ‘doing’ and less time ‘complaining.”

Cuomo basically said that Trump should get his ass off the couch, and get to work.

“First of all, if he’s sitting at home watching TV, maybe he should get up and go to work, right?” Cuomo said. “Second, let’s keep emotion and politics out of this, and personal ego, if we can, because this is about the people, it’s about our job, and let’s try to focus on that.”

“How many times do you want me to thank you? But I’m saying thank you for doing your job,” Cuomo added. “This was your role as President.”

We’re sorry to say this, Governor, but Trump will always expect politicians to grovel to him to get the supplies they need.

Was the crisis in Afghanistan surrounding the pull out of American Troops Biden's fault or Trump's fault?
