Twitter reacts to Trump’s classy Phoenix rant on immigrants, the media, and a man fighting cancer

Donald Trump went to Phoenix Tuesday to remind America of one thing first and foremost—he’s a total ass, or as former GOP Congressman David Jolly put it:

Trump slights McCain in AZ the week he's undergoing cancer treatment.

Can't spell POTUS without P.O.S.

— David Jolly (@DavidJollyFL) August 23, 2017


Trump groused repeatedly about being “one vote… ONE VOTE away” from passing health care repeal and then congratulated himself for not mentioning “any names” (as in, John McCain, who’s currently undergoing chemotherapy). He decided to revisit Charlottesville because he hadn’t mangled the response badly enough already, cherrypicking his own quotes and railing against the “dishonest media” for not giving him the credit he deserved. He promised that “one way or the other, we’re gonna get that wall”—because that’s clearly a primary concern for Americans right now. But those are just a few choice points from the hour-plus rant he reveled in delivering. Here’s some notable reactions:

Trump, who "wrote" Art of the Deal, now complaining that Obama was able to pass the ACA and he failed to repeal it—He's still angry at Obama

Trying to be fair here. Honest question. He's insane, right?

If you thought you wouldn't live long enough to hear a president mock a guy going thru chemo for brain cancer, congratulations. You made it.

Point: He's not always like this.

Counter-point: Jeffrey Dahmer didn't eat everybody he met.

Watching CNN showing Trump saying that CNN cut the cameras and is refusing to air his speech. Uh … he's crazy. Batshit. Crazy.

Less than 5 minutes after claimin' the press promotes racial hatred, Trump announced he will pardon one of the most notorious racists in US.

— Tea Pain (@TeaPainUSA) August 23, 2017


Trump is a racist and a narcissist in decline while under the most pressure he's ever faced in his life. No reason this can't get worse.

We should have all just stared at the eclipse.
