Trump Tried To Tweet Without Twitter And It Went South In A Hurry

Ex-President Donald Trump launched a new bid for attention on Wednesday as he attempted to claim credit for the coronavirus vaccine. 

The statement resembled his old tweets in style and was just under the character limit for a tweet. But since Trump has been banned from Twitter, he sent it out as a press release instead.

“I hope everyone remembers,” he stated twice and insisted the COVID-19 vaccine was only possible because of him. 

His critics offered some all-too-honest remembrances of Trump’s role in the pandemic, just not the kind he was hoping for:

CNN’s Brianna Keilar Busts Lindsey Graham’s Big ‘Magic’ Myth About Donald Trump

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) further prostrated himself before Donald Trump at the weekend when he declared there was some “magic” in the ex-president that he was trying to channel for the greater good.

“There’s something about Trump. There’s a dark side and there’s some magic there. What I’m trying to do is harness the magic,” Graham told Axios’ Jonathan Swan.

On Wednesday, CNN’s Brianna Keilar debunked Graham’s claim in a seven-minute segment exploring the South Carolina Republican’s “curious metamorphosis” into “Trump’s sidekick.”

“The only magic there is watching the Lindsey Graham we once knew disappear,” said Keilar, noting how Graham’s 2015 attacks on Trump transformed into adulation of the president once he’d moved into the White House.

“Trump isn’t a magician. He’s a carnival barker, whipping up an audience for a one-man circus,” she added. “Donald Trump has only ever acted in the interest of one thing, himself.”
