Trump Seething Mad Over ‘Incompetent’ Dr. Fauci’s Interviews and That Biden is Trying to ‘Downgrade His Legacy’

Boy, Donald Trump losing Twitter really did shut him up. Can you imagine if this had been done a year ago? Three years ago? The heartache and tragedies that might have been prevented. We see that without Twitter, Trump is simply too lazy to find a way to reach his supporters.

Well, a new report from the Daily Beast has Trump fuming mad down at Mar-a-Lago, and he’s furious at just about everyone.

First, there is Dr. Fauci. Fauci spent the weekend giving multiple interviews where he ragged on Trump, and explained how much better things are under Biden.

Fauci’s re-emergence on prime-time television during the Biden era infuriated the exiled Trump, who began whining about how “incompetent” the doctor was, and how he probably should have fired Fauci when he had the chance, a source close to the former president and another individual familiar with the matter tell The Daily Beast. (Technically, Trump did not have the power to fire Fauci, a career federal employee.)

Fauci? Incompetent? Looks like Trump hasn’t changed one iota.

And it’s not just Fauci. Trump has also griped this weekend about not being able to tweet about the Biden team telling journalists that Trump and ex-officials had left them with a gigantic COVID mess to mop up, according to a person with direct knowledge of his recent ramblings.

He very much feels that a lot of people are working to downgrade his legacy out of hatred for him,” this source said.

Well, people do hate him, but for good reason. Insurrection anyone?

Also, it’s amazing just how hurt Trump is by his inability to tweet. For over ten years Trump could just tweet out whatever he wanted. Happy, sad, angry, he didn’t care, he tweeted. And now, with that ability taken away, he’s likely going crazy. And his anger over not being able to tweet must be building up, as he’s basically isolated at Mar-a-Lago with just a handful of junior staffers…and Dan Scavino of course.

There was also this interesting tidbit from the report, from the reporter Asawin Suebsaeng:
