Does anybody get the meaning of what a so-called Noble (not Nobel) Prize is, especially as it pertains to Reporters and Journalists? Noble is defined as, “having or showing fine personal qualities or high moral principles and ideals.” Does sarcasm ever work?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 26, 2020
Trump deleted those tweets, sure enough; and went, again, to his "go to" response: he was being sarcastic!
Which doesn't explain why he thinks journalists win Nobel prizes, or why he deleted those three tweets. Maybe because he can't make a pun with "Pulitzer"? Or because he really is that stupid, and when he gets pantsed in public, all he can say is, "It was sarcasm!"
Twice in one week; gotta be a record.
In the meantime: over 55,000 Americans dead of coronavirus as of today. Silence about this from the POTUS. Which, sadly, is no surprise. It is obscene to bring that count up in this context; the true obscenity is the clanging silence from President Trump.
What a damning metric: 4.5 minutes out of 13 HOURS of Trump expressing sympathy for the victims.— Susan Glasser (@sbg1) April 26, 2020
