Donald Trump slams Michelle Obama in the ongoing Twitter rant


President Donald Trump hit his critics and political opponents in the fight against the coronavirus on Wednesday, sustaining an hour-long stream of online verbal abuse while he was being treated with experimental drugs.

The president was already flagged by critics with a fit of "roid rage" when he fired 42 tweets on Tuesday and overnight. He was back on Wednesday morning, this time tweeting the claim that the nation would turn into a "hellhole" if Democrats took over government.

In just one fiery example on Wednesday, Trump followed up on former First Lady Michelle Obama, who is one of the country's most popular political figures.

A day after she posted a 24-minute video calling him a racist, Trump retweeted actor James Woods – who replaced the clip's background with footage of urban chaos and burning buildings.

House spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi admonished him during an appearance on ABC.The viewand called on the "enablers" around him to conduct an "intervention".

"There are enablers around the president who really should know better," she said.

Even as he was engaging in real and perceived enemies in the midst of drug use ordered by his medical team, the president felt it appropriate to visit the Oval Office – maybe.

Economic adviser Larry Kudlow announced on CNBC's Squawk Box on Wednesday that the president went there with "extra precautions" and then refused to say what they claimed were "much bigger than just masking."

Amazingly, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows claimed just minutes later that Trump had not been in the Oval Office but was planning to return later Wednesday. That position was supported by Meadow's aide Ben Williamson, who flatly stated that Trump "wasn't there".

This stance is in line with previous reports and official statements: Trump will be specially set up with a work area in the White House residence and staff who come into contact with him will have to mask themselves and put on protective yellow clothing. and while Trump is dying to visit the oval, he's not allowed to go there yet.

Trump previously retweeted a self-described "free speech radicalist" who wrote, "It's no longer Republican versus Democratic." It's pro-America and makes us a third world hellhole. & # 39;

Trump also made it difficult to back up claims that he can win California, saying if he did he could end the wildfires that have struck Napa and other areas – along with the rolling power outages and water conservation measures amid those measures Years of drought imposed.

& # 39; Vote TRUMP California. No more power outages, shutdowns, ridiculous forest fires, or water rationing (coming soon). We can win in California NOW! & # 39; The president posted from his iPhone at 8:43 a.m.

In a poll published September 30 by KGTV and Survey USA, Joe Biden led Trump by 27 points.

It's not known if Trump's doctors recommend bed rest, but at 8:18 a.m., Trump proposed attacks on Republican adviser Steve Schmidt, who accused Trump of "tyranny" and hypocrisy, and whose group The Lincoln Project mocked the video that Trump was from published his dramatic return to the White House.

The television journalist Greta Van Susteren retweeted Schmidt and wrote: “Why are you so rude? It's one thing to disagree with someone, but you get so personally called by name and seem to have a particular readiness to offend women. & # 39;

Schmidt had just retweeted Trump loyalist Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn, who welcomed Trump's return from the hospital and made the claim that Trump had "defeated China again" – what the president's claims of what he calls the "China virus" repeated.

Schmidt, a former adviser to Senator John McCain, flared: “Howard Baker was once a United States Senator from Tennessee. This woman is a five star fool. What an embarrassment. & # 39;

Trump stepped in to support Van Susteren and called Schmidt a "loser".

“Because I hit him and his few remaining customers so badly and so badly that he became a babbling idiot. He failed with John McCain and will fail again with everyone else. He's a total loser. @ MarshaBlackburn is a Tennessee Star, a highly regarded WINNER! & # 39; Trump wrote.

Trump's more substantial tweets were also thrown back.

Just hours after the talks about a coronavirus relief package broke off – just weeks before standing in front of voters with millions of Americans about unemployment – Trump tweeted calling for new laws. Markets had rebounded after his pre-election Tuesday letter declared a deal dead.

In a tweet, Trump set his terms for Congress to approve a stimulus package hours after saying he would cease negotiations with Democrats until after the November 3 election.

“When I get a separate invoice for stimulus checks (US $ 1,200), it goes IMMEDIATELY to our great people. I am ready to sign now. Are you listening to nancy & # 39; He tweeted Tuesday night.

Trump has long called for individual stimulus payments and the continuation of the small business paycheck protection program, but rejected other elements of the Democrats' proposed stimulus package. He repeated this position on Tuesday.

His White House has been asking for independent bills for months, without success.

Pelosi called the White House "one of the most dangerous places in the country" and said she wouldn't get anywhere, then ripped up the president's negotiating strategy.

"It's hard to come up with a clear, reasonable way of doing what he's doing, but the fact is that he has seen the political disadvantage of his testifying to withdraw from the negotiations … He is recovering from a terrible mistake he made yesterday did, "she said.

"The last time I had an interaction with the President was the address of the State of the Union, and after that I said to my staff:" I think he received medical treatment, there is something wrong with how he got there and himself presented. & # 39; & # 39;

Earlier and overnight, the president tweeted 42 and retweeted 42 on a variety of topics in a matter of hours while quarantined in the east wing, beating the FBI, FDA, Joe Biden, House spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi and Chris Wallace.

His spate of tweets came shortly after the president was discharged from the hospital in the middle of his treatment for Covid-19, which resulted in treatment with the steroid dexamethasone. Experts say the drug can cause psychological side effects that affect your thinking and could affect Mr Trump's brain.

One medical professional said they saw "significant" side effects, including anxiety and aggression, in about a third of people, while the class of drugs the drug belongs to has been found to impair judgment or even cause psychosis.

"The House and Senate should IMMEDIATELY approve $ 25 billion in flight accounting support and $ 135 billion in small business paycheck protection program," Trump wrote in another tweet.

& # 39; Both are paid in full with unused funds from the Cares Act. Got this money. I will sign now! & # 39; he went on.

COVID THERAPY DEXAMETHASONE CAUSES & # 39; ALSO PSYCHIATRIC EFFECTS & # 39;

The spate of tweets from the president came just hours after he was discharged from hospital in the middle of his treatment for Covid-19, which resulted in treatment with the steroid dexamethasone. Experts say the drug can cause psychological side effects that affect your thinking and could affect Mr Trump's brain.

One medical professional said they saw "significant" side effects, including anxiety and aggression, in about a third of people, while the class of drugs the drug belongs to has been found to impair judgment or even cause psychosis.

House spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi suggested that Trump may have skewed thinking because of the steroids, saying, "There are people who believe that steroids have an impact on the way you think. Well, I don't know, ”said Pelosi, according to Politico.

Doctors warned Tuesday that dexamethasone carries the risk of serious side effects such as mood swings, aggression and confusion.

Trump's medical team said Sunday the president was started on dexamethasone, a generic steroid that has long and been widely used to reduce inflammation related to other diseases. The steroid was started after Trump experienced low oxygen levels.

Dr. Ashish Jha, dean of the School of Public Health at Brown University, told Fox News, “We are definitely seeing quite a significant impact in 30 to 40 percent of people … (the) fear, the unrest.

Scientific studies have shown that patients with dexamethasone can have memory and cognitive deficits after just a few days. Corticosteroids – the class of drugs that dexamethasone belongs to – can cause psychiatric side effects in 1.8 to 57 percent of people who take them.

A study published by the Mayo Clinic, Minnesota, found that unpredictable "adverse psychiatric reactions" are relatively common among people taking the medication.

The experts' first concern was that using dexamethasone to treat Trump indicated he was very ill as the $ 6 steroid could be dangerous for people with mild COVID-19.

But because it's been linked to everything from mania to memory problems and aggression to psychosis, some are also concerned that the president's judgment could be compromised as he reportedly continues to work on his illness.

Biden, Trump's democratic opponent in the presidential election, tweeted a GIF that could only be addressed to the president and said himself: "Get off Twitter."

Trump also responded with displeasure to new FDA rules that make it impossible for a vaccine to get approved for release before the election.

& # 39; New FDA rules make it harder for them to expedite vaccines for approval before election day. Just another political hit! “Trump tweeted separately.

Earlier in the day, the FDA said vaccine manufacturers should follow study participants for at least two months to rule out major side effects before applying for emergency clearance – a schedule that eliminates any hope of a vaccine ahead of the November 3rd election as Trump had often promised .

Other targets of the President's anger included House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Fox News host Chris Wallace.

"Wear your mask to the beauty parlor, Nancy!" He said of Pelosi regarding surveillance footage she was held without a face covering while visiting a salon in San Francisco, in violation of the city's lockdown rules.

& # 39; Chris Wallace was a total JOKE. Protected Joe all night. He is not a Mike !!! & # 39; Trump tweeted about the journalist who moderated last week's presidential debates and compared him unfavorably to his father, Mike Wallace.

Mr. Trump's tweets are coming as he is still taking the steroid dexamethasone as part of his treatment for coronavirus. The steroid is known to have side effects that can affect the brain and thinking processes.

House spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi suggested that Trump may have skewed thinking because of the steroids, saying, "There are people who believe that steroids have an impact on the way you think. Well, I don't know, ”said Pelosi, according to Politico.

In another tweet, he cited reports of voting irregularities: & # 39; 11,00 North Carolina residents received fake voter registration forms. 2000 LA County Voters received "defective" ballots with no opportunity to vote for president. Many others in the US. Let's go. This will be the most corrupt election in American history! & # 39;

In a long series of tweets, Trump spoke about federal investigations into Russian election nuisance and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of a private server for emails.

& # 39; I have fully approved the full release of all documents relating to the greatest political crime in American history, the Russia Hoax. Likewise the Hillary Clinton Email Scandal. No editorial offices! & # 39;

It was in response to a tweet from media colleague Paul Sperry of the Hoover Institution that Trump retweeted more than a dozen times within an hour.

Trump previously vowed to release documents related to the FBI's 2016 Trump-Russia investigation and the subsequent investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, which found no evidence that the Trump campaign constitutes a criminal conspiracy with the Russian government .

In a follow-up tweet, Trump wrote: “All information about the hoax scandal in Russia was released by me a long time ago. Unfortunately for our country, people have acted very slowly, especially as it is perhaps the greatest political crime in our country's history. Plot !!! & # 39;

“So I had to keep fighting all this scum, reaching more than any other president in the first term, and then they talk about chaos. You have committed crimes against me and this government! & # 39; Trump added in a retweet from Fox News commentator Greg Jarrett, regarding the FBI's Trump-Russia investigation.

“I can't believe these scammers aren't being prosecuted yet. Pathetic! & # 39; Trump said of the FBI investigators.

Biden also came in for Trump's anger in a tweet storm from the White House on Tuesday

Biden responded with a GIF that could only be addressed to President Trump

Biden came in from the White House on Tuesday in a tweet storm for Trump's anger and issued a tweet apparently addressed to the president with the headline "Get off Twitter".

Trump's tweetstorm on Tuesday night followed an earlier tweet that crashed stock markets when he said there would be no deal with Democrats on additional pandemic stimuli until after the election.

While some theorized it could be a negotiating tactic, others pointed to one of the drugs Trump is taking to treat the coronavirus dexamethasone, a steroid that can cause side effects of aggression, agitation, and confusion.

On Monday, Trump's Twitter account was suspended after he shared the email address of a New York Post columnist.

Twitter forced Trump to delete the tweet before unblocking the account and introduced rules against sharing private information without consent.

WHAT ARE THE DRUGS TRUMPF TREATED AND WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS?

President Trump has received at least three effective drugs since announcing he tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday night: Regeneron's cocktail of lab-made antibodies, the antiviral remdesivir, and the steroid dexamethasone.

Two of these drugs are still experimental for the treatment of COVID-19 and have received emergency approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

And the White House doctor, Dr. Sean Conley, admitted Monday that he would not disclose every single drug the president is currently receiving (citing laws protecting the privacy of HIPAA patients, suggesting Trump is giving Dr. Conley permission himself has to disclose some of his drugs, but not all of them).

Remdesivir, dexamethasone, and the antibody cocktail are all in ongoing trials – but it's unclear whether anyone other than the U.S. Commander in Chief has ever been treated with all three.

These three drugs are "as far as we know (about the President's regimen) – but I found it all really confusing based on the reports," said Dr. Mark Poznansky, an infectious disease specialist at Massachusetts General Hospital, told DailyMail.com.

When asked if there was a precedent for treating a COVID-19 patient with all three drugs, Dr. Poznansky: "No."

"But the individual decisions are based on the individual patient and all bets are void when dealing with the president, the commander in chief," he added.

"The implication is that doctors believe the risk of using these is outweighed by the potential benefits."

And while we are clear about the possible side effects of each drug, it is a mystery how they might interact, "because they just haven't been used often enough … we don't know about the combination," Dr. Said Poznansky.

But even on their own, the side effects of these drugs could be of particular concern to the President, as the steroid can cause mood swings, confusion, and aggression.

The drugs he's been treated with and their possible side effects are:

REGENERON'S EXPERIMENTAL ANTIBODY COCKTAIL MEDICINAL

IF HE HAS IT: Trump received a single dose of 8 grams of Regeneron's cocktail of laboratory-made antibodies on Friday.

WHAT IT DOES: REGN-COV2 is a combination of two laboratory-made versions of antibodies that prevent coronavirus from entering cells.

One of the antibodies in the "Cocktail" is based on an antibody that mice produce in response to the coronavirus, while the other is based on an antibody that was isolated from one of the first US COVID-19 patients.

The hope is that treatment will lower the viral load, prevent the body from becoming overrun and mess up the immune system, and prevent the infection from becoming serious.

WHAT THE DATA SAY: REGN-COV2 is still in the early stages of study, but initial data from its clinical trial showed that it drastically reduced viral loads within a week and increased recovery time in patients who were not sick enough to be hospitalized halved.

Regeneron has not yet studied the drug in seriously ill patients.

THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS: The main concern is that these types of treatment occasionally induce "antibody-dependent amplification," which means that the therapeutic intended will actually help the virus enter cells.

So far, the studies do not suggest that REGN-COV2 causes this phenomenon.

Antibody treatments can also cause allergic reactions such as anaphylaxis, as well as fever, chills, nausea, diarrhea, weakness, headache, and low blood pressure.

REMDESIVIR, GILEAD'S ANTIVIRAL MEDICINAL

IF HE HAS IT: President Trump received his first dose of a five-day treatment course Friday night after being transferred from the White House to Walter Reed National Medical Center.

He has since received his second and third doses of the drug.

WHAT IT DOES: Remdesivir is an antiviral therapy that was originally developed to treat Ebola.

Scientists aren't entirely sure why, but it helps prevent the coronavirus from making more copies of itself.

WHAT THE DATA SAY: Late clinical trials with remdesivir found that patients treated with the drug were more likely to recover within 11 days than those who did not receive the drug.

Their chances of survival were 40 percent better. In May, the drug was the first to receive emergency approval from the FDA for the treatment of critically ill patients. This approval has now been extended to all hospital patients.

POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS: It can cause nausea, vomiting, chills, sweating, or drowsiness. The drug can also affect liver function, which means patients must be closely monitored.

There was some evidence that Trump's liver and kidney function wasn't optimal last night, but Dr. Conley said Monday the president was just "dehydrated".

DEXAMETHASONE, THE $ 6 STEROID WITH COMMON PSYCHIATRIC SIDE EFFECTS

When he got it: The president was given a dose of dexamethasone on Saturday after developing a high fever and blood oxygen levels falling below 94 percent twice.

WHAT IT DOES: Dexamethasone is a cheap steroid that is known to suppress inflammation. It is already approved for use under other conditions in the United States.

WHAT THE DATA SAY: Although dexamethasone has not yet been approved for emergency use in the US, it is the most promising treatment for coronavirus to date.

In a large UK study, the steroid reduced the risk of death for patients sick enough to need breathing equipment by 36 percent by 18 percent for patients who only need supplemental oxygen.

However, it appeared harmful in earlier stages or in milder cases of illness: 18 percent of drug users died versus 14 percent of usual caregivers.

Because of this, many doctors were alarmed that President Trump was being treated with the drug because its use indicated that he was either very ill or that doctors were taking a risk giving it to him early on.

POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS: The steroid is strong and can cause swelling, headache, stomach pain, nausea, weakness, dizziness, trouble sleeping, blurred vision, skin problems, severe allergic reactions including mood changes.

These mood swings include aggression, agitation, and confusion.

"Steroids are always very dangerous drugs," said Dr. Edward Jones-Lopez, an infectious disease specialist at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, told Reuters.

& # 39; This is why it (dexamethasone) is used in severe to critical patients … There may be neuropsychiatric side effects. These are drugs that we use very, very carefully. & # 39;

Stephen Miller, Top Trump Advisor, Tests Positive For COVID: Senior Advisor Becomes Fifteenth Member of the President's Inner Circle to Get Infected after helping prepare for debate with Hope Hicks, Kellyanne Conway and Chris Christie

Stephen Miller, a senior policy advisor to President Donald Trump, has tested positive for coronavirus, according to a government official.

Miller, 35, tested positive for the virus Tuesday after working remotely for the past five days and testing negative every day until yesterday, the NBC News reporter said Hallie Jackson.

Miller is currently in quarantine. His wife, Katie Miller, tested positive for COVID-19 in May, but returned to her job as top spokesperson for Vice President Mike Pence after she had fully recovered from the infection by that time.

Katie Miller, currently pregnant, was a key figure in Pence's preparations for Wednesday's Vice-Presidential debate with Senator Kamala Harris in Salt Lake City.

She is currently with the vice president's travel company in Utah, an administrative officer told DailyMail.com.

On Tuesday, White House Doctor Jesse Shonau said in a memo that Pence tested negative for the virus earlier in the day.

"Vice President Mike Pence is encouraged to carry out his normal activities and does not need to be quarantined," the memo reads.

Miller, seen in July, is a senior policy advisor to Donald Trump

Katie Miller had previously mocked plans to install a plexiglass barrier between the two candidates during the vice presidential debate, saying, "If Senator Harris wants to use a fortress around him, you have it."

Stephen Miller was last seen publicly on September 30th while on board Marine with Nicholas Luna, Assistant to the President and Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications, Dan Scavino, Senior Advisor to the President of the United States, Jared Kushner and Advisor to Marine One One went the President Hope Hicks.

Hicks tested positive for COVID-19 two days later, and Luna tested positive on October 3.

Stephen Miller is now at least the 15th Trump assistant to test positive for the virus. The President and First Lady announced their positive result on Friday, October 2nd.

Almost all members of the White House "cluster" either attended a rose garden ceremony on September 26 or took part in preparation for the debate with Trump ahead of the presidential debate on September 29.

Miller was a key participant in Trump's debate prep in the White House card room.

The preparation also included Hicks, the former New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie, the former Advisor to President Kellyanne Conway, and Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien, all of whom have tested positive for COVID-19 since the debate.

Miller, a top aide who has remained in his post since his inauguration, is one of the government's most controversial figures.

He is considered the mastermind behind Trump's travel ban against several Muslim-majority countries, as well as a sunk policy of arresting all people who entered the country illegally, leading to the separation of children and family members.

Miller's grandmother, Ruth Glosser, died in July at the age of 97, with family members suspecting the coronavirus.

At the time, Miller denied that the coronavirus was responsible for her death, telling Mother Jones through a spokesman that Glosser caught the virus in March.

"She was diagnosed with COVID in March and died in July, so the timeline doesn't add up at all," the spokesman said. "His grandmother died peacefully in her sleep from old age."
