Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, March 28, 2020

According to the Wall Street Journal, President Trump is pushing for his signature on the $1,200 checks that many individual Americans will soon receive now that the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act has been signed into law. Don Hammond, a former official at the Treasury Department, told the Wall Street Journal that a disbursing officer's signature would ordinarily be on the checks.

This is one of those things that any sentient person should immediately identify as a mental health issue. We're in the middle of a once in a lifetime viral pandemic as states and cities struggle to find life saving supplies and this man actually took the time to think about and THEN actually tell someone else that he wants his signature on relief checks?

Oh I understand the political calculus but it boggles my mind that everyone can't see that Trump cares more about politics and his fortunes than he does in actually doing what's right for everyone, including citizens who aren't MAGAts. Everything he does violates his oath to protect and defend this nation. The only thing he actively protects and defends is himself and the maelstrom of self created crises that he calls reality. And he does that by projecting his own guilty actions and faults onto his perceived antagonists.

He advertises his unfitness for office with most every action that he takes placing more and more American lives in jeopardy while he's focused on getting his signature on relief checks.

Perfect... he can cover them personally from his vast riches earned by being a legendary bidnessman.

I knew Trump would want all credit for this and roll it into his re election campaign.

Guess what. He'll get the credit too.

I would not take a check from him, it would most likely bounce.

Someone should tell him that since he's the incumbent he's almost guaranteed to win anyway.

His best election strategy would be to just STFU.

Not gonna happen.

Once this four year fiasco which has been the Trump presidency is finally over and done with, I wonder whether right wingers, who were so desperate to take the WH will look back on it and decide whether it was worth it. Was the permanent damage done to America and it's standing in the world worth more money for the 1% and a few more conservative judges?

Of course they will decide it was worth it. The judges are a good score and they refer to the damage as "winning".

Dotarded Kevorkian should also slap his signature on a hundred thousand or so death certificates.

This might get Trump a few votes from people who aren't smart enough to recognize desperation when they see it.

Can anybody picture Obama doing something like this?? LOL ~ NOT A CHANCE!

Of course.

Trump knows his followers are dumb enough to believe he wrote the checks on his personal account if they see his illegible chicken scratch on the checks.

Trump touts TV ratings of his news conferences amid pandemic

President Trump took to Twitter Sunday afternoon to tout the ratings of his news conferences, claiming without evidence that mainstream media are going "CRAZY" because of his popularity on television.

"Because the Ratings' of my News Conferences etc. are so high, Bachelor finale, Monday Night Football type numbers' according to the @nytimes, the Lamestream Media is going CRAZY," Trump tweeted. "Trump is reaching too many people, we must stop him.' said one lunatic. See you at 5:00 P.M.!"

OMFG.... Is this man capable of realizing that everything isn't about HIM, that it's about Americans seeking information and reassurance about their own safety during a global pandemic?

The sad irony is. This Democratic hoax has provided Trump hours of coverage. A lot of his positive ratings are due to people seeing him on television talking about dealing with the pandemic he caused.

It always amazes me how, time after time, Trump creates a fire, and then takes credit for other people putting it out. Then the Jeff's of America go around exclaiming what a great President Donnie is and how well he's dealing with the situation.

The check is coming from The American Taxpayer, i.e. people who pay taxes.

Humpy don't pay no stinking taxes.

The money is not coming from Trumpy.

It's coming from congress. Nancy Pelosi should sign the checks.

There were a ton of solutions offered by the Democrats.

One was checks to every American.

One was free testing and treatment.

One was a corporate bailout that had accountability and strings attached.

One was shelter in place nationwide.

One was accepting tests from abroad when we were behind on testing.

One was using federal law to order companies to manufacture medical equipment.

Republicans said no and demanded corporate welfare and tax cuts for rich people...until things really got out of control.

Joe Biden is just someone smart enough to listen to the experts rather than assume he knew everything.
