2020 trump timeline

four years later:::

behold the gems of trump’s mind from the pandemic outbreak to the election in this 2020 video timeline:::

it focuses on trump's daily camera appearances from the white house's youtube channel and mostly ignores his rally speeches:::

we forget:::

may 28 2020

four years ago today, trump was busy trying to shut down twitter because they fact-checked him (remember: this was before his long-time friend elon bought the platform):::

 

he singled out a twitter employee by name and talked about some tribunal at facebook..........

 

we forget:::

may 27 2020

four years ago today, trump went to kennedy space center and thanked his long-time friend elon:::

 

and even melania was there – graceful as ever in her silence:::

 

we forget:::

 

may 26 2020

four years ago today, trump mocked wearing masks and happily engaged in spreading conspiracies:::

 

we forget:::

may 22 2020

four years ago today, trump talked a lot but only one sentence seems worth mentioning here: in america, we need more prayer, not less!

 

coming from him, it sounds like blasphemy or prophecy:::

 

we forget:::

may 21 2020

four years ago today, trump appeared on camera in three different settings but managed not to say much (same old, same old):::

 

still, an epic comeback is happening, and he has great gut feelings – just like about running for president:::

 

we forget:::

may 20 2020

four years ago today, trump was asked if he would have done something differently in handling this crisis:::

 

you can easily guess his answer, so where's the medal?!

 

and don't forget that we have so many cases because we test so much!

but fake news.......

 

we forget:::

may 19 2020

four years ago today, trump said we're opening up the country and it's very exciting, the cures and vaccines are coming, some sections of the country have no virus at all, but i'm a bad promoter, and just a rude person you are to ask any questions:::

 

so that's enough for you:::

 

we forget:::

may 18 2020

four years ago today, to take his hydroxy ad campaign to the next level, trump started taking the drug himself::: why?

because he's heard a lot of good stories!

 

and why don't you take your mask off?

 

though on a different topic, he admitted that the priorities in this country are really screwed up and we have a long way to go..........

 

we forget:::

may 17 2020

four years ago today, trump briefly reassured us that tremendous progress is being made and a lot of very good things are happening:::

 

so all good:::

(though people around him wear masks outdoors)

 

we forget:::

may 15 2020

four years ago today, trump said that vaccine or no vaccine, time to open up the country, and we'll just have to fight through the virus (it was outside but people around him wore masks):::

 

he revealed the reason why he's sitting here and smiled beautifully at the presentation of the space force flag!

 

and there's the super-duper missile and truckers:::

 

we forget:::

may 14 2020

four years ago today, trump said we have more cases than anybody in the world because we test: when you test, you have a case!

 

but testing is overrated anyway:::

and the press doesn't want to talk about it:::

 

we forget:::

may 13 2020

four years ago today, trump bragged about the all-time record in testing:::

 

where is the medal?!?

where is fake news?!?

 

we forget:::

may 11 2020

four years ago today, trump said if people want to get tested, they get tested but they shouldn't want to get tested – there's no reason!

 

and i understand you better than you understand yourself:::

 

and obamagate!

 

but then fake news started asking nasty questions and he ran away...........

 

we forget:::

may 09 2020

four years ago today, this is all trump said on camera:::

 

the less, the better?

 

we forget:::

may 08 2020

four years ago today, trump said the virus will die like everything else... and he inspired the title of my film – transition to greatness:::

 

he took time for special greetings to adam schiff:::

and did you know he can tell a wrestler by a jawline?

 

we forget:::

may 07 2020

four years ago today, trump was occupied with treason and human scum (whose partner is the media):::

 

but as scripture assures us..............

 

we forget:::

may 06 2020

four years ago today, trump delivered: virus will disappear – the death toll number is what it is – we have a million cases because we're testing – can't satisfy the media – russia russia russia...

 

to recap: he has accomplished more than any president:::

 

we forget:::

may 05 2020

four years ago today, trump said we've flattened the curve and are safely reopening – the next stop: mars! (literally and very soon):::

it's been a very exciting few days, but we're testing too much:::

 

we forget:::

may 01 2020

four years ago today, trump picked up new words: gusto and vigor::: then he mumbled something about how nobody can ignore facts and truth – ?!?

 

otherwise, the usual: great feelings and the greatest economy in the history of the world...

 

we forget:::

apr 30 2020

four years ago today, the king of ventilators suddenly realized that he's in charge:::

 

so consequently, we did a spectacular job!

and what he feels is better than what he thinks:::

 

we forget:::

apr 29 2020

four years ago today, trump repeated again and again that the virus is going away::: and when it's gone, we're gonna be doing a lot of things:::

 

and he felt a lot of things over the years including, gee, he could win for president...

 

and the reason we have a million cases is because we're testing so much:::

 

we forget:::

apr 28 2020

four years ago today, trump explained that the reason we have a million cases is because we're testing:::

 

but it's going away and the cases will go down to zero:::

 

we forget:::

apr 27 2020

four years ago today, trump dismissed disinfectant questions and instead focused on his other 2020 mantra: the greatest economy in the history of the world.............

 

though he admitted it's all through luck or whatever:::

 

we forget:::

apr 24 2020

four years ago today, trump was still reeling from yesterday’s uv/disinfectant ideas and not only didn’t take questions but stopped doing these briefings daily:::

 

still, there's tremendous talent involved – like people who just stand there and help you with the doors:::

 

we forget:::

apr 23 2020

four years ago today, dr. trump famously suggested uv light and disinfectant injections:::

 

disinfectant manufacturers displayed warnings on their websites that their products are not for consumption or injection:::

 

we didn't forget:::

apr 22 2020

four years ago today, the king of ventilators became the king of testing as well:::

and then he planted a tree (literally):::

we forget:::

apr 19 2020

four years ago today, trump was fully awake but it's hard to tell whether he was farting or not:::

though he said he should be tired – we should all be tired.............

 

and our wartime president (the king of ventilators!) is scared of mosquitos:::

but lincoln struggled with the press just the same:::

 

he played a clip of andrew cuomo but his staff missed the word 'phenomenal' so he made them re-play it with that word 20 minutes later:::

 

and the regular friendly exchanges with fake news and some human scum for dessert:::

 

we forget:::

apr 18 2020

four years ago today, trump was fully awake and delivered: winning – china – death – pulitzers – fake people – fantastic job – patsy – putin – north korea – garbage – junk – ammunition – tricks – the big v – brilliant market – and we march...............

mar 28 2020

four years ago today, things got odd: trump skipped his daily white house briefing to see the hospital ship depart:::

 

he read a speech, and what followed is presented here in its entirety, uncut c-span version, because i don't know what to do with it:::

we forget:::

mar 16 2020

four years ago today, trump rated his response to the crisis at 10:::
