Armed with his characteristic insanity, Donald Trump decided to end a very disastrous year with an equally disgraceful meltdown on Twitter.
On New Year’s Eve morning, Trump decided to acknowledge the fact that the Democrats have a very good chance of taking control of Congress (thanks to his disastrous performance and multiple failures of a Republican-dominated government). While this might seem like a positive step toward reality for Trump, what actually happened was quite different.
During Trump’s temper tantrum on Twitter, Trump made some of his most ridiculous claims as he took credit for accomplishments that he had nothing to do with. Once again taking credit for the hard work of former President Barack Obama, Trump whined that if Democrats were in office, they would “totally kill” the “great wealth” that he and his administration had accomplished (or at least taken credit for) in their first year in the White House.
In two tweets, Trump freaked out about the GOP losing control of the U.S. House of Representatives in the midterm elections and begged Americans to give the GOP a second chance. Trump tweeted:
Why would smart voters want to put Democrats in Congress in 2018 Election when their policies will totally kill the great wealth created during the months since the Election. People are much better off now not to mention ISIS, VA, Judges, Strong Border, 2nd A, Tax Cuts & more?
If the Dems (Crooked Hillary) got elected, your stocks would be down 50% from values on Election Day. Now they have a great future – and just beginning!”
First of all, the country is not better off (especially now that the GOP’s disastrous tax cut bill has passed). And even when Trump tries to take credit for Obama’s accomplishments, he STILL fails! The Washington Post recently pointed out, “the Dow actually did better” in Obama’s first year than Trump’s.
The truth of the matter is that voters cannot wait to get Trump and his minions out – and Trump might finally be catching on.
