As the Trump administration slammed Joe Biden for his controversial antiblack comments, the president retweeted a slew of insulting posts that called Hillary Clinton a ‘skank’, Stacey Abrams overweight, and Nancy Pelosi as a drunk all within a matter of 48 hours.
Trump and his associates have ramped up their campaign against Joe Biden, fixating on his Friday Breakfast Club radio interview with Charlemagne tha God where he said: ‘Well I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.’
While Trump’s administration expressed outrage over the insult and his campaign planned a million-dollar advertising attack on Biden, the president himself has been on a bullying tweeting spree.
The president spent Memorial Day weekend golfing and tweeting from his golf course in Virginia sharing a dozen controversial posts.
He shared one tweet that referred to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as ‘HRC the Skank’.

The president also retweeted this post that called former 2018 gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams overweight
In another post he retweeted two doctored photos of Speaker of the House Pelosi, one where she had a Trump 2020 face mask and another with duct tape edited over her mouth, that said: ‘With duct tape, she won’t be able to drink booze on the job as much’
The tweets were shared by Twitter page that shares a slew of anti-Democrat posts and called Biden, Abrams and Pelosi the ‘Three Stooges’
He also retweeted a photo of former 2018 gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams that said: ‘We just got a look at the official portrait for the self proclaimed Governor of Georgia. She fought a tough race, kissed a lot of babies and visited every buffet restaurant in the State. Joe will be a racist if he doesn’t pick her.’
In another post he retweeted two doctored photos of Speaker of the House Pelosi, one where she had a Trump 2020 face mask and another with duct tape edited over her mouth.
The tweet said: ‘To protect PolyGrip during this pandemic, we have developed 2 options. With the DJT option, she will be able to tongue and adjust her dentures more easily. With duct tape, she won’t be able to drink booze on the job as much.’
Another incendiary post included a tweet that touted hydroxychloroquine as an effective treatment for coronavirus with the president saying: ‘Many physicians agree with you. Also, some very good studies!’
He also tweeted claiming that mail-in ballots will lead to the ‘greatest rigged election in history’ without any sound proof of faults with the procedure.
The president also blasted former Attorney General Jeff Sessions telling him to drop out of the Alabama Senate race saying he has ‘no courage & ruined many lives.’
On Sunday Biden called out Trump for his excessive tweeting saying: ‘The presidency is about a lot more than tweeting from your golf cart. It requires taking on the ultimate responsibility for the biggest decisions in the world. Donald Trump simply wasn’t prepared for that. I promise you I will be.’
The former Vice President slammed Trump’s response to coronavirus on Sunday, saying that he is ‘playing golf’ while ‘nearly 100,000 Americans have died’

Trump, who spent Saturday and Sunday playing golf, justified his time on the course as part of his exercise regimen.
‘Sleepy Joe’s representatives have just put out an ad saying that I went to play golf (exercise) today. They think I should stay in the White House at all times. What they didn’t say is that it’s the first time I’ve played golf in almost 3 months, that Biden was constantly vacationing, relaxing & making shady deals with other countries, & that Barack was always playing golf, doing much of his traveling in a fume spewing 747 to play golf in Hawaii – Once even teeing off immediately after announcing the gruesome death of a great young man by ISIS!’ he tweeted Sunday night.
Trump has decided to spend the Memorial Day weekend holiday at his private golf club in Virginia, but his tweet referred to a moment in 2014 when President Obama went golfing, immediately after speaking about the beheading of American journalist, James Foley.
Obama was vacationing in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, when Islamic militants released the gruesome video of the killing.
Obama strongly condemned the killing but then minutes later, he was photographed golfing, which caused critics to accuse him of insensitivity. The former president later said he should have known better.

Biden followed his tweet with a political attack ad against Trump along similar lines framing his response to the crisis as inadequate.
The 30-second ad shows video shows Trump playing golf at his Virginia club on Saturday and is cut with footage of front-line health workers pictured in hospitals, taking COVID-19 tests, and speaking to patients on gurneys.
Throughout the video a red bar graph can be seen increasing as the number of coronavirus-related deaths edges towards 100,000.
‘The death toll is still rising. The President is playing golf,’ the text reads.
‘The presidency is about a lot more than tweeting from your golf cart. It requires taking on the ultimate responsibility for the biggest decisions in the world. Donald Trump simply wasn’t prepared for that. I promise you I will be,’ Biden tweeted

Trump was spotted leaving the White House on Sunday wearing a white polo shirt and a white baseball cap.
He was seen driving his own golf cart on the 800-acre private golf club he owns about 20 minutes south of Washington D.C. A bevy of carts followed him, likely consisting of fellow players and his Secret Service agents.
Trump also started his Saturday with a game of golf. It marked the first time the president hit the links since March 8, his last weekend in Mar-a-Lago before the coronavirus shuttered normal life.

President Donald Trump was seen shaking hands with a fellow golfer Saturday
The president, however, failed to practice social distancing when he was at his members-only club on Saturday.
Trump, who has repeatedly refused to wear a face mask despite CDC recommendations, was seen once again mask-less and flouting social distancing requirements to stay six feet from other people by shaking hands with a fellow mask-less golfer.
It was the longest duration he has gone without visiting one of his clubs since becoming president, according to NBC, which calculated he has visited his own properties on more than 400 days or around a third of his term.
As of Sunday night, the U.S. had recorded 1.6 million confirmed cases of the virus and 97,720 deaths, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
