Just reported, he's tweeted 18 times so far this morning. Trump goes on all-cap rage attack at Democrats in 3 AM tweet from hospital
... Trump told a rally of his fans in Minnesota that Biden would “inundate your state with a historic flood of refugees.”
He whipped up the crowd by saying that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), a naturalized American born in Somalia, wants to tell “us how to run our country — can you believe it?”
In response, Trump’s fans roared: “Lock her up!”
Last year, Trump said Omar and the three other non-white Democratic congresswomen known as “The Squad” should “go back” to the “crime infested places from which they came” — even though they are all American citizens, have all sworn allegiance to the Constitution and, with the exception of Omar, are all American-born.
When Trump was criticized for those comments last year he said he does not have “a racist bone in my body.”
But The Squad’s most famous member, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), shot back on Twitter that Trump may not have racist bones but “You have a racist mind in your head, and a racist heart in your chest.”

He may believe that he has even more power than Trump to beat the virus even after he was inches away from so many people who subsequently tested positive.
Forget the snark. Just wear a mask.
We can remove this awful man from our collective headspace, which he has so thoroughly befouled. We can reclaim our serenity, our equilibrium, our sense 0f common humanity. We can return to a time when it was possible to go hours or even entire days without once thinking about what our president might be saying or doing. We can exhale.
At a recent rally in North Carolina, Trump was making one of his rambling attempts to mock Joe Biden when he told the crowd: “If I lose to him, I don’t know what I’m going to do. I will never speak to you again. You’ll never see me again.” Biden’s social media team quickly posted a clip of Trump’s remarks, then added a zinger: “I’m Joe Biden, and I approve this message.”
Conclusion: Through repetition and force of will, Trump creates his own “reality.” But we know it is not really real, so we must constantly spend time and effort dispelling the miasma of mendacity that pours out of Trump’s fog machine of a mouth. Doing so is exhausting, Sisyphean, psychic labor that drains the soul. Yet it is necessary — because the words of a president, by definition, are consequential — and so the only way to end this epistemological trench warfare is to end Trump’s presidency and send him home to Mar-a-Lago, where he can mutter at the walls.
If Biden wins the election, Trump will not go happily and might not go easily. But he will indeed go — and when he leaves the White House, he will also vacate our national consciousness, giving us all some psychic room to breathe.
A vote for Biden is more than a vote for sane governance. It is a vote for American sanity, period.
What should we think about pundits who tell us what this really means for the election? Could this have any impact on who people actually decide to vote for? Who knows! Voters’ minds have seemed very made up for months now, but this isn’t exactly a normal event. Trump, one could argue, could be the beneficiary of a wave of sympathy if he publicly handles this right. Or, one could counter, Trump has just again proven how reckless he’s been throughout the pandemic, how his bungled response to a deadly virus was always going to end like this.
Trump’s case against Biden has often boiled down to a machismo-infused “toughness”: That he’s the one who’s mentally and physically fit enough to take on America’s adversaries, foreign and domestic. How does that argument work now with Trump potentially fighting a very deadly virus in the weeks before the election? Or if he winds up being asymptomatic, does this just become proof of concept to his base?
It is going to be days until many of these questions begin to have true answers. Literally, the incubation time for the virus is days. We are not going to know much of anything for days. It is OK to be uncertain. This whole year has been uncertain. We’re all very practiced.
Anyway, back to screaming.
