The Hypocrite-in-Chief Accuses Democrats of "Playing Games" During RNC Convention Week

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP IS accusing Democrats of "playing games" due to the fact that his administration is actively destroying how the Post Office is run. Let's recap:

  • Trump's own Postmaster General Louis DeJoy created these problems. He's slowed down service by reducing working hours, changing how mail is delivered, and removing hundreds of high-speed mail sorter machines.

  • In spite of these changes that Trump's own administration is implementing, Trump tweeted out "SAVE THE POST OFFICE" on Monday afternoon. The irony is that the president himself could save the post office by ordering his postmaster general to knock it off.

  • Trump also tweeted a complaint about Congress returning to Washington in order to address these problems which, again, Trump refuses to fix on his own

Here's what Trump had to say about Democrats:

Why is Congress scheduled to meet (on Post Office) next Monday, during the Republican Convention, rather than now, while the Dems are having their Convention. They are always playing games. GET TOUGH REPUBLICANS!!!

Which is a completely hypocritical thing to say: Trump himself is holding a campaign rally in Wisconsin on the opening day of the Democratic National Convention. And on the day that Joe Biden is set to formally accept the party's nomination, Trump will be holding another campaign event in Delaware as he does so.

If anyone is playing games, it's Trump. Don't fall for his crocodile tears.
