Normally, Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer, as people take the long weekend to gather with friends and family, participate in parades and solemn ceremonies honoring the nation’s war dead, and generally enjoy the start of the outdoor season.
But as we all know, this is far from normal times. And so it is with today’s messages from the Commander-in-Tweet, as President Donald Trump took a moment to remember, albeit not in the traditional way. Instead, today’s early tweetstorm was used to settle a few scores with his foes.
The Commander-in-Tweet also focused on arch-enemy and MSNBC Morning Joehost Joe Scarborough, raising once again questions about a mysterious death in his congressional office.
Trump burned as ‘the least masculine’ president in modern times by Naval War College professor
President Donald Trump’s supporters think of him as the ultimate alpha male, but a scathing op-ed in The Atlantic makes the case that he’s “the least masculine man” to be elected president in modern history.
Tom Nichols, a conservative professor at the Naval War College in Rhode Island, writes that he is baffled that blue-collar white men continue to support Trump even as the president has whiny tantrums about being treated unfairly in the media.
As the national death toll from COVID-19 approaches the stunning 100,000 milestone, The New York Times is devoting its entire Sunday May 24 front page to a list – a partial list – of the dead.
And the grim, powerful impact of the newspaper’s unusual approach might have contributed to yet another round in the ongoing feud between President Donald Trump and MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough.
“Completely unfounded conspiracy. Just stop,” a frustrated Rep. Adam Kinzinger tweeted, lashing Trump’s attack on Scarborough, a frequent critic of the president. “Stop spreading it, stop creating paranoia. It will destroy us,” he added, apparently referring to Republicans and future elections — or possibly America.
