Update (0823ET): Another journalist noted the irony of it all.

Update (0745ET): "Steroids" is now trending on twitter as users across the social network joke that Trump's early morning tweetstorm was the result of "roid rage". Over the weekend, Trump's doctors confirmed that the president was being treated with dexamethasone, a steroid and effective anti-inflammatory drug that has shown great results in treating seriously ill patients. The NYT suggested that the fact that Trump is receiving the steroid suggests his condition is worse than the White House is letting on.

Others speculated that one of Trump's aides was tweeting in the president's stead.

The truth? We may never know.

Update (0735ET): The rant continues.

While the mainstream press was incensed by President Trump's joyride to greet the "Great Patriots" gathered outside Walter Reed Sunday evening, it was apparently the show of strength and stamina that investors needed to assuage worries about Trump's condition.

And with futures pointing to a sizable bounce at the open, President Trump has taken to twitter to cheer on the stock market and remind Americans why they should vote for him in a flurry of tweets on everything from the president's defense of the Second Amendment to the threat that Joe Biden will move to shut down the American economy once again.

The stream of tweets started with a quote from Fox and Friends, one of Trump's favorite shows...

...before moving on to warning about a "massive tax increase, the biggest in the history of our country" should Joe Biden win and Democrats sweep the Senate in November.

He then jumped to an attack on Virginia Gov. Ralph "blackface" Northam.

Before rattling off a list of reasons to vote for Trump.

While even conservative economists acknowledge that whoever wins, taxes will likely need to be raised next year, Trump insisted another package of cuts could be "on the way". Perhaps readers should take that one with a grain of salt.

With Trump cooped up in the presidential suite at Walter Reed and receiving a cocktail of experimental drugs, we imagine he'll be doing a lot more tweeting in the coming days.
