Trump Posts Bizarre Year-End Victory Lap Speech, Takes Lion's Share of Credit for Vaccine: 'Everybody's Calling to Thank Me'

By Joe DePaolo
Dec 31st

Less than three weeks before his departure from the White House, President Donald Trump is taking one more victory lap for what he views as his accomplishments during 2020.

In an odd, five-minute speech from the White House posted to Twitter, the president touted his record in a variety of areas ranging from the Middle East to the economy. But much of the address was devoted to the work of Operation Warp Speed, and the fact that a coronavirus vaccine hit the market before the end of the year — defying the expectations of many.

“Over and over again, we were told it would be impossible to deliver a vaccine by the end of the year,” Trump said. “All of the experts said, ‘Absolutely unthinkable. Trump is exaggerating. It can’t happen.’ And we did it. … Years from now, they’ll be talking about it. They’ll be talking about this great, great thing that we did with the vaccines.”

The president added, “The world will benefit. We’ll benefit. And everybody’s calling to thank me.”

1. "Largest mobilization since ww2?"

Can making "millions and millions" of masks compare to building plans and tanks?

12. My daughter is a hospital nurse in Colorado

They have had a shortage of N-95 masks since last April.
If his Administration couldn't even provide the most rudimentary PPE how the hell does he take credit for the vaccine that was developed by private companies, and is now sitting in storage because he couldn't handle a nationwide distribution plan?

2. but he said it was a hoax - so why the vaccine? why are people taking vaccine for a hoax?

the media needs to throw this stuff back at him again and again. He can't have things his way - he has fucked up everything he touched.

14. A scary preview of what likely would have been his second term.

Straight up propaganda videos just to be shared online. Once in a blue moon or to scratch his itch on something he feels the need to weigh in on.

Just a hunch, but these videos will likely go on after Biden in sworn in. He can have a big sign behind him that says "President Donald J. Trump." No Presidential seal though, but he'll probably break that rule as well. In his mind, once a President, always a President.

There will be official looking visits to Mar-a-Lago by Trumpy Republicans and rare foreign nationals. He'll strut around for as long as he can pretending he's still in charge. Question is, how much will MSM cover this - if it all?

Can't wait for January 20 to get here.

4. He can't give speeches anymore-

Just these spliced together videos with no audience, no press.

6. Are the people calling big muscular, macho manly-men who cry and call Trump "sir"?

Because that seems to be the usual type...
