Trumpism is incapable of responding with leadership this moment demands, says Charlie Dent. "Republicans find themselves left with the leader of Abraham Lincoln's party defending confederate statuary and waging war on masks during a pandemic" | @CNNOpinion https://t.co/Q0Sms53rDE

"There are only three ways to interpret Trump’s remarks:
1) He is purposefully instigating racial tensions because he believes it will help him politically…
2) He is a racist with no self-control…
3) He is too stupid to realize what he is doing…"https://t.co/jsaOCpimaU

AP uses 21 words to describe the clear behaviour of a racist without using the R word itself. Everything wrong about our media coverage of Trump in a single tweet. https://t.co/q9pWF32kUx

Analysis: It’s not that Trump doesn’t want to tackle racism. It’s just that he’s focused on perceived racism against whites. https://t.co/XUqlkdeB4q

Nobody has a lower opinion of Trump voters than Trump himself.
Whenever he’s trying to rally their support, he ignores all the fake economic populism he did in 2016 and doubles and triples down on the racism instead. That’s what he thinks they want. pic.twitter.com/7XByR6qUuM

So Kanye and Jared Kushner's family got PPP loans. No wonder the Trump White House wanted to keep all this secret. That program may go down as one of the most corrupt and wasteful in American history.

"We discovered too many care homes didn't really follow the procedures in the way they could have."
— Rachel Clarke (@doctor_oxford) July 6, 2020
Dear @BorisJohnson, it is disgraceful that you are now blaming care home owners for the deaths of residents sent back from hospital with Covid-19. The public are not stupid, despite what Cummings tells you. Clearly @MattHancock’s ‘protective ring’ claim was false.
— Fr Ian Maher 🏴 🇪🇺 #RejoinEU #BLM (@IanMaher7) July 6, 2020
It was the care home owners. It was the scientists. It was the medical staff. It was the PPE suppliers. It was the Chinese. It was the public.
No Boris, it was you. Own it.

It is actually very disturbing that our Prime Minister @BorisJohnson regards the House of Commons like it’s the side of a campaign bus, spewing lies out week in week out. History will judge his premiership incredibly badly. Johnson is utterly deplorable. He really is. https://t.co/gaSASphazS

From a Dutch populist newspaper:
“Britain back to the pub: nudity and shitfaced people.”
Although it mentions that most went orderly, the stereotypical derogatory image of the British people as drunk louts is reconfirmed.
Not a good look.
