It took a threat to something President Donald J. Trump actually values to elicit a response to the novel coronavirus outbreak in the U.S. Hint: it wasn’t the wellbeing of the citizenry.
The Donald’s True Colors
Could this be the week supporters of President Donald J. Trump finally wake up and see his true colors?
As late as Monday, March 9, Trump was trying to push off the threat of coronavirus, suggesting, for the millionth time, that it’s a “hoax.”
“President Trump in an early morning tweet on Monday accused the ‘Fake News Media’ and Democrats of trying ‘to inflame’ the coronavirus outbreak as the virus spreads globally and across the U.S.,” The Hill reported Monday morning.
Yet, by the end of that day, Trump was behind the podium, announcing his administration’s “response” to the worldwide outbreak of novel coronavirus. It came at the end of the worst day Wall Street has seen in more than a decade.
“An irony here is that the United States today is in fact haunted by many actual and interrelated national emergencies. Here below are the top thirty-one that came to the present writer’s mind this last weekend….” – Paul Street
There are plenty of real national emergencies that need our attention.
President Donald J. Trump declared a national emergency last week, calling the “situation” at the border between the United States and Mexico a “national security crisis.”
In a post shared on the Dandelion Salad blog and re-shared on Rcooley123’s Blog, Street shares 31 actual emergencies this nation needs to address. And these are just the ones from the top of his head. Check them out.

Speech Dubbed “First #SOTU of the Tweetstorm Age”
President Donald J. Trump gave the shortest State of the Union address in the history of the United States last night to a joint session of Congress and nearly a dozen Americans watching on live television.
Pundits have dubbed it “The First #SOTU of the Tweetstorm Age.”
Prior to the address, Trump’s staff released the text to the media:
It’s Official. IV Words is “#FakeNews.” As they say up here in the Great White North, Youbetchya. Since “fake news” is simply news the #RedHatters don’t like or agree with, I agree. And welcome the label.
The IV Words blog has arrived. Sort of.
It’s Official. IV Words is “#FakeNews.”
Yep, official. As they say up here in the Great White North, Youbetchya. At least it is according to several fine #MAGAts who read “There’s No Art in Trump’s Fake Deals” post on Facebook and proceeded to deride and condemn the blog and its blogger.
