Trump Pushing CDC To Change How Covid-19 Deaths Are Classified, To Lower The "Official" Death Toll
Instead of doing a better job so there are fewer actual deaths, manipulate the official numbers to make yourself appear to have done a better job.
Mcconnell republicans blocking the release of CDC safety guidelines and criticizing more testing as harmful to the economy is about the same as claiming firefighters are dangerous to a burning house. https://t.co/a1yQW7AAKR— Bill Pascrell, Jr. (@BillPascrell) May 13, 2020

Trump and members of his task force are pushing the CDC to change how the the agency works with states to count covid19 deaths.They’re pushing for revisions that could lead to far fewer deaths being counted than originally reported
Maybe she should just tell each state the number the President wants, for each day, to reach the desired total. This would make it so much easier, wouldn't it?— OpiesDaughter (@OpiesDaughter) May 13, 2020

Can "Proudly Displaying My Mental Illness" Be Considered A Hobby?
I hope you find a hobby you enjoy as much as the president enjoys criminalizing stuff and accusing people of crimes on Twitter— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) May 13, 2020

Since Sunday, Trump has used his Twitter account to make or elevate allegations of criminal conduct against no less than 20 people and groups, throwing out unfounded accusations including even murder as he rages against his enemies. @ToluseO https://t.co/MHsbef6md5— Peter Baker (@peterbakernyt) May 13, 2020
Hmm no. But he’s not afraid to say the appalling thing. He embraces racism easily and eagerly. He seems to have no core beliefs abd most importantly, no shame, so there are never any lessons to learn. He’s a narcissist, so all that matters is everythings impact on him. 1) https://t.co/pGkgi8rVg6— Soledad O'Brien (@soledadobrien) May 13, 2020
He is eagerly cruel, which many find appealing. He is not book smart, but he can read a room, usually. When he fails, he runs off, or swaps messaging. His biggest success is getting the media to always embrace his framing, his wording, his pov. Always. He is a “big character’ 2)— Soledad O'Brien (@soledadobrien) May 13, 2020
Thus, he is “good tv”. But he stands for jothing and surrounds himself with weak people who also have no core beliefs.— Soledad O'Brien (@soledadobrien) May 13, 2020
So nope—he’s pretty stupid, but fearless in his bigotry and meanness, which appeals to many.
Just because someone is effective in achieving some of their aims doesn’t make them smart. It may just make them ruthless and amoral. Tasmanian devils are very effective at devouring their entire prey, tooth and nail. No one thinks they are brilliant. https://t.co/tbyCy2w93u— Anne Lutz Fernandez (@lutzfernandez) May 13, 2020
Exactly. Jeffrey Dahmer was brutally effective at eating more people than any other American. I believe his diagnosis was “disorganized psychopath”— Angus McRockford (@AngusRockford) May 13, 2020

Obama can just ignore a subpoena regarding his activities as president, right? That's apparently how it works these days. #SubpoenaObama— Pé (@4everNeverTrump) May 13, 2020
The same people calling to #SubpoenaObama over a debunked conspiracy theory are the ones who believe Trump should be completely immune from the rule of law, even though he obviously committed crimes. If you are one of these people, you need a mental health exam.— Ms. Krassenstein (@HKrassenstein) May 13, 2020
