Trump derangement syndrome makes you do stupid things. We all know this. From the media peddling, trash stories about Russian collusion to feeding koi fish, the history of embarrassment has been extensive. Folks, the media couldn’t even report on Trump feeding fish accurately. That’s how bad it is. Oh, and then there’s the daughter of a podiatrist who knew Trump’s bone spur diagnosis was a favor, but can’t really say that because anyone who was credible who could corroborate that allegation is dead. Also, she wasn’t even sure if her dad examined Trump. There’s also no paper evidence. On the Hill, it’s a different story.
Enter the insufferable Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) who decided to mock the president’s visit to Lee County, Alabama, where 23 people died after a string of strong storms brought major tornados into the area. Yeah, how dare the president visit the area of the country that’s been devastated? Lieu deleted the tweet, but the Internet is forever. The Washington Free Beacon has more:
I have concluded based on Twitter comments I received that my last tweet was inappropriate. I understand the purpose now of the President's visit to Alabama. I apologize and am going to delete my tweet.— Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) March 8, 2019
When the day came, Trump tweeted he was on his way to Alabama. Lieu reacted with his "#FridayMorning Thoughts."
"WE ARE IN THE THIRD WEEK OF THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY! Can you feel the emergency?" Lieu tweeted, a reference to Trump's effort to declare a national emergency in order to bypass Congress and fund his proposed border wall.
Is this why @realDonaldTrump is going to Alabama, because we need to build a wall along Alabama’s southern border? Oh wait, I just looked at the map…" he continued. "#FridayMorning Thoughts."
Lieu has something of a habit of sticking his foot in his mouth on social media, previously apologizing after he tweeted that an underage Parkland, Florida school shooting survivor should travel to California and sample their marijuana. Lieu also deleted a tweet after he was called out by White House press secretary Sarah Sanders for tweeting out a false and misleading headline.

Unimaginable loss - Such great people! https://t.co/AV9oi8XuaE— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 8, 2019
Okay, so this isn’t the first time that Lieu has acted intellectually disabled. Then again, this is what happens when anyone becomes a frothing anti-Trumper. At the same time, California liberals have always been morons so let’s give credit where credit is due: the local weather reporters who have been credited for saving lives. They also weren’t freaking out and trying to cause a panic in their reports. Yet, apparently, this was a tragedy that deserved to be mocked to get at Donald Trump for his border security agenda. This is the Democratic Party of 2019, folks.
