Trump spent 3 1/2 hours golfing today. How many Americans died during his time on the links?

Don’t worry. Donald Trump is hard at work, doing everything he can to protect … oh wait … he’s golfing. Again.#TrumpGolfsYouDie #trumpgolfswhilepeopledie

As @realDonaldTrump golfs this Memorial Day weekend while Americans continue to die due to his failed leadership, here’s a photo of a monument he placed along the Potomac at his VA golf course, which is as fake as his Putin installed presidency.
This battle never happened.

Virus pandemic confronts Memorial Weekend:
• Some houses of worship stay closed, despite President Trump calling them essential, saying they should reopen.
• COVID-19 cases fall in China, but surge in Latin America, India.
• U.S. deaths surpass 96,000.https://t.co/2arrvK7Zcy

They will say that it’s no big deal, it’s just temporary, and wait days and weeks beyond what they should. And thousands, or tens of thousands, will die as a consequence.

The #DominicCumings scandal is so explosive because it is not abstract. Hundreds of thousands of people sacrificed by not going to funerals or not seeing frightened parents. They will never forget.

No Conservative MP or minister spoken out (other than in support) for Cummings. But privately there is anger and incredulity. Senior minister told me tonight Cummings has to go because he’s ‘damaging the team and the policy’. PM using up a lot of political capital
— Beth Rigby (@BethRigby) May 23, 2020
You keep thinking it can’t get any more putrid. Then up pops the former lover of the current fiancé of a PM who can’t enumerate how many kids he has with a story briefed by said PM (who never appears in public) defending Cummings on the grounds that he wasn’t shagging. 1/2 https://t.co/Oq28FphDHc

The issue is no longer Cummings. The issue is why cabinet ministers took time out this weekend to trash the credibility and integrity of their own government in order to protect an unelected, divisive courtier. https://t.co/AAjJuIIqzF

This seems symptomatic of what is wrong with our politics. We all know he doesn't believe this and that privately he's probably spitting tacks , but hey the game is the game https://t.co/p0SMVZonmX

The absolute dereliction of duty it takes to put party honour in front of national security and public health during a deadly pandemic is incredible. Every single minister who has put out a public statement in support of Cummings should be out of a job.
