As the US continues down a perilous path with a unrelenting pandemic on one side, a fevered civil unrest on the other, the T-Rump accelerates his own shit-head ignorance without an ounce of empathy.
This morning a press conference that wasn’t really a ‘press’ conference at all, just another stunt to bolster the tiny brain of a total prick:
In a single statement, Trump manages to denigrate the memory of George Floyd and his experience, while also showing an utter lack of sympathy for the plight of millions of Americans still struggling through and economic crisis.
A truly stunning level of tone-deafness. https://t.co/h8051QrCVx

Add this via the Guardian‘s live blog:
Trump wrapped up his prepared remarks (which seemed largely improvised) and signed legislation related to the Paycheck Protection Program for small businesses.
Reporters shouted questions at him as he signed the bill, but the president only responded by continuing to brag about this morning’s jobs report.
One reporter asked how the economic growth could have helped George Floyd, after the president said this was a “great day” for Floyd, who was killed in police custody last week.
Another reporter, Yamiche Alcindor of PBS NewsHour, asked Trump to comment on how unemployment actually rose among African Americans and Asian Americans.
Trump responded by dismissively waving his hand and telling Alcindor, “You are something.”
Yes, the T-Rump is a pure asshole:
