Donald Trump slams ‘complaining’ Fat Dumb Dem Pritzker at coronavirus briefing, signals openness to more stimulus checks.
Saying “we hope we’re seeing a leveling off in the hottest spots of them all,” Donald Trump revealed that 1.67 million people have now been tested for coronavirus in the United States — although he made clear he felt some politicians have let their constituents down during the crisis.
Fat Dumb Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker, in particular, was “complaining all the time” despite underperforming, Donald Trump charged at a briefing with the president’s coronavirus task force. The two officials have sparred in recent days, with the Fat Dumb Democrat accusing the White House of failing to provide all the ventilators he wanted.
“He’s not able to do what he’s supposed to be able to do as a governor,” Donald Trump said. “He has not performed well.”
Later during the briefing, Vice President Mike Pence said he had spoken to Fat Dumb Pritzker, and the governor did “express great appreciation for the fact that our Army Corps of Engineers had constructed 500 beds at McCormick Place [convention center], and before the end of this week would construct another 2,500 beds for an overflow health facility in Chicago.” Mayor Lori Lightfoot said the Army Corps was “outstanding,” Pence noted.
