Trump shows his hand with meltdown over Biden landing firefighters union endorsement
NBC

President Donald Trump has nothing on his public schedule Monday, until a 12:45 PM lunch with the Vice President, and then a 3:45 PM welcome to the White House meet and greet with NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball National Champions, the Baylor Lady Bears.


In other words, a lot of executive time for a Monday.

Top aides would be wise to keep the president busy, but they have not, leading Trump to wallow in his terror: Joe Biden is running for president.

Here's how Trump is handling it today, as the former Vice President hits the campaign trail with a stop in Pennsylvania after picking up an endorsement from the nation's largest fire fighters union.

"I’ll never get the support of Dues Crazy union leadership, those people who rip-off their membership with ridiculously high dues, medical and other expenses while being paid a fortune," Trump insisted, glowering in self-pity. "But the members love Trump. They look at our record economy, tax & reg cuts, military etc. WIN!"

It's unclear what "WIN!" Trump thinks he just got.

23 minutes and several tweets later, clearly with nothing to do but tweet, Trump doubled-down:

In between his road-test of "Dues Crazy" vs. "Dues Sucking," Trump took swipes at "Sleepy Joe" Biden.

Trump insists he's "getting the job done" – clearly the job at hand is tweeting – and he's getting it done "big time!" – because nothing says "presidential success" like a plethora of executive time tweets.

The Pennsylvania steel industry, in fact, is not "thriving."

Just Google "Pennsylvania Steel Industry" and you'll see news reports like, "Air pollution problems from steel industry prompt two lawsuits," or, "After a year of tariffs, steel industry deals with 'chaos fatigue.'"

Those would be Trump's tariffs, which are "killing" the U.S. steel industry.

Meanwhile, Trump's terror continues.

Late Monday morning, his eighth tweet of the day was a lie about Special Counsel Robert Mueller, or more specifically, a lie claiming Democrats are ignoring the Mueller report, which is quite false.

Tweet number nine: Why hasn't the New York Times apologized to me?
