The “Trump Virus” kills record numbers of Americans
Let’s call it what it really is — it’s the “Trump virus,” not the “China virus.” Covid-19 has created a crisis throughout the world, and has produced a test of leadership. Trump has failed the test. He has taken a crisis and turned it into a tragedy, and the magnitude of his failure is astonishing. Covid-19 would not be spreading so nearly out-of-control like it is now had it not been for Trump’s mismanagement of the pandemic from Day One.
The US reported a record death toll for the second day in a row, with more than 3,740 Covid-19 fatalities on Wednesday alone. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) forecast projects that more than 80,000 Americans could die of Covid-19 over the next three weeks, in spite of ongoing vaccine distributions.
Covid-19 numbers keep rising. Yesterday the US reported a record high of more than 125,200 Covid-19 hospitalizations nationwide, according to the COVID Tracking Project.
CNN reported that a closing indignity on the final day of this horrendous year is that based on his pattern of mismanagement, nobody actually expects Trump, who is still the President until noon on Jan. 20, to be paying any attention to the actual nightmare underway in the country he supposedly still leads. At 341,000 and growing, more people have died from Covid-19 in the US in 2020 than died in all the years of battle in World War II and Vietnam combined.
The point here is the country is at war with a global pandemic and Trump spent the week on the golf course and tweeting about his election loss instead of trying to save Americans.
Hundreds of thousands of Covid-19 deaths fall on Trump’s shoulders as a result of his negligence and gross mismanagement. Trump is THE BIGGEST LOSER our country has ever seen. Anyone else who recklessly squandered lives like Trump has done would be suffering legal consequences. Trump and his band of worthless, do-nothing legislators have largely claimed immunity for their actions. But this election gave voters the power to render judgment, and we did.
Trump is “leaving behind the worst set of crises for his successor of any President since Herbert Hoover,” said CNN political analyst David Gergen, who wondered if this was the worst end to a presidency ever. It is; don’t wonder any longer. The sooner we get rid of Trump, the better off America will be.
Trump — the most “subversive and traitorous federal official” in history
Biographer Michael D’Antonio, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the 2016 biography "The Truth About Trump,” said that Trump is the most “subversive and traitorous federal official” in history. D'Antonio warned that Trump will do anything to stay in power and will accept any help, legal or otherwise, that he believes might enable his ongoing coup attempt to succeed.
The dominant narrative about Trump's coup attempt, however, is that it has "failed" and that Trump is both ”incompetent” and a “failure.”
Let’s look at Trump’s real record:
- Because of Trump’s mismanagement of the pandemic, more than 400,000 Americans will soon be dead from the coronavirus pandemic, which by some standards could make 2020 the "deadliest year in U.S. history," with a 15% increase in fatalities from 2019.
- The final year of Trump's presidency has had such a negative impact that U.S. birthrates are predicted to decrease in 2021.
- Millions of Americans face eviction.
- There are long lines for free food and other essentials in cities and towns across the country.
- More than 10 million Americans are now at least $5,000 behind in rent payments.
- All regions of America are experiencing near-record levels of unemployment and underemployment.
- Millions of Americans may not receive their unemployment benefits — perhaps even for several weeks — because of Trump's unconscionable delay in signing the coronavirus relief bill.
- The very richest individuals and corporations have become even wealthier and more powerful during the pandemic, while average Americans face financial ruin and deprivation.
- Trump was at his Florida resort since before Christmas, playing golf, sabotaging relief efforts and waging a last-ditch campaign to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
Trump is nothing but a dangerous and disgusting fascist, a racist, and a white supremacist; and “Trumpism” is a subversive cult.
Trump and his ignorant cult followers have left the United States in a condition where it is a morally and ethically “undead,” zombie-like country, shambling on by instinct and compulsion with absolutely no direction or vision.
D'Antonio predicted that once Trump is finally deposed on Jan. 20th, he will continue to be a looming, menacing presence in American life — perhaps by creating his own TV network and opening a theme park-style temple for his tens of millions of abnormal cult followers.
But the republic that Trump has tried so hard for so long to destroy still stands. It is, for him, not goodbye but “hasta la vista.” Instead of waving him off, those who truly want to rebuild American democracy will have to turn off and/or ignore his narcissistic bully pulpit and figuratively put a stake through his heart. Hopefully the attorneys general, the banks, the tax court and the lawsuits coming Trump’s way can do that for us beginning on January 20th.
Trump’s mismanagement of the economy & the pandemic caused the national debt to soar to its highest level since WWII
Debt and bills have to be paid. If we’re not going to pay them today, we have to pay them tomorrow. It’s a fact of life. Trump has mismanaged the economy and the pandemic so badly that he has been responsible for increasing the national debt by a whopping $7.5 trillion dollars during his four years in office to the point where our grandchildren’s grandchildren will be paying for his mistakes for generations to come.
The national debt currently stands at over $27.5 trillion dollars! It was $20 trillion when Trump took office.
TRUMP IS A LOSER. He is the worst president in all of American history.
Mitch McConnell: Trump’s Worthless Flunky
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Trump’s favorite flunky, blocked the Senate vote that would deliver $2,000 stimulus payments to most Americans.
In objecting to the vote, McConnell took note of Trump’s statement from Sunday that called not only for larger checks, but also new curbs on large tech companies and an investigation into the November election; and McConnell suggested they would be dealt with in tandem.
By linking the increased payments to measures that Democrats oppose, so-called “poison pills,” McConnell’s bill will most likely sink efforts to get Americans additional COVID-19 relief. Next to Trump himself, McConnell is without any doubt the most worthless legislator in Congress.
Trump, acting through McConnell, his brown-nosing puppet, wants more worthless investigations into the November election? Trump’s an even bigger idiot than he looks like if he thinks he’s going to hold Americans hostage, using more baseless investigations as a bargaining chip to provide citizens with higher stimulus checks. He underestimates American citizens. We would gladly go without any stimulus check if it meant getting rid of Trump right now. With Trump, the malignant narcissist, it’s always about him. Trump is a vindictive and cowardice asshole. He knows it, we know it, the world knows it. We get rid of such assholes on January 20th. It’s called the ousting of the incompetent and the inauguration of a new president. We citizens win! Trump is a LOSER yet again.
Trump Rated as the Worst President of All Time — a LOSER!
Trump is not just bad; he’s the worst president in all of American history — even worse than Herbert Hoover, the benchmark for terrible presidents. Hoover became known for his heartlessness and indifference to the suffering of ordinary Americans.
Trump’s behavior this week has caused millions of struggling Americans to lose their unemployment benefits for a week — for no real reason other than his vindictiveness. Trump now tops Herbert Hoover for callousness and cruelty. As the Covid death toll continues to climb past 335,000, Trump’s non-action has proven that he isn’t just one of the worst presidents in American history, but the worst of all.
Michael Beschloss, presidential historian for MSNBC, agrees, saying that “Trump makes Herbert Hoover look like Mother Teresa.” He went on to say that you always want someone as president who has compassion and empathy. Trump, on the other hand, in reference to the pandemic, said, “It is what it is.” Beschloss continued, saying, “Donald Trump is the kind of person that we have never ever seen before in the presidency, and I hope we never ever see again.” We wholeheartedly agree!
President Harry Truman once said that he couldn’t imagine a president who doesn’t read history. He said that “every reader will not be a leader, but every leader must be a reader.” Trump is completely ignorant and indifferent to history.
Beschloss said, “Trump is largely responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans who didn’t need to die. Millions of others will suffer from Covid who did not need to suffer.” This, and nothing else, is what Trump will be remembered for in the annals of history — the president who let his people die and did nothing about it.
All this is happening this week while Trump is riding around in a golf cart in Palm Beach, VP Mike Pence is on the ski slopes in Vail, and Steve Mnuchin, the Secretary of the Treasury, is in Cabo San Lucas in Mexico. This is not leadership; it’s sheer incompetence. Trump wants the job of president, but he’s neither willing or qualified to do the job of president.
Trump is the perfect example of Nero fiddling while Rome burns. Trump lost the popular vote. He lost the electoral college vote. He lost all the baseless lawsuits related to election fraud. He lost the fight to suppress the voice of the voters. He lost the fight against Covid-19. And let’s not forget that he was forever impeached. Face it, America, Trump is nothing but a LOSER.
THE ANNALS OF HISTORY WILL SHOW THAT TRUMP IS A PATHETIC LOSER!
Trump’s Tardiness Causes 14 Million Americans To Lose Income
Fourteen million Americans will be deprived of a week of unemployment aid as a result of Trump’s signing the pandemic relief bill too late.
Congress actually had the pandemic relief bill flown to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home on Friday so that Trump could sign it without delay, but Trump was too busy golfing to take action. Instead, this incompetent autocrat waited so long that as many as 14 million Americans will now lose one week of expanded unemployment assistance. And then Trump boasted, “As President of the United States it is my responsibility to protect the people of our country from the economic devastation and hardship that was caused by the China Virus.” What a friggin self-centered low-life! The bill Trump signed yesterday provides Americans with a pathetically low $600 stimulus check — an absolute insult to Americans who have waited months for the second coronavirus relief bill.
As a result of his shortsightedness, Trump is also the loser here. He got nothing from his drama. This was an embarrassing episode for Trump. He opposed a bill that his own administration negotiated without having any alternate strategy and no hand to play — and it showed. Trump folded because he’s a loser. Congress is unlikely to agree to the changes Trump demanded in a lengthy statement after his signing. Once his signature was affixed to the bill, Trump lost his leverage to extract $2,000 direct payments and the cuts to foreign aid that he wanted.
So now House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is staging a roll-call vote on Monday on the $2,000 checks in order to spotlight Republican opposition to the politically popular idea backed by Trump. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a tweet that he will seek consent this week in the Senate to pass the House bill, which will force Republicans to either buck the president or go along with $2,000 checks party leaders previously dismissed as too large.
“Every Republican vote against this bill is a vote to deny the financial hardship that families face and to deny the American people the relief they need,” Pelosi said in a statement.
Senator Bernie Sanders tweeted, “Finally. Now, Trump must get Mitch McConnell and his Republican friends in the Senate to pass legislation to provide $2,000 in direct payments to the working class.”
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer tweeted, ”The House will pass a bill to give Americans $2,000 checks. Then I will move to pass it in the Senate. No Democrats will object. Will Senate Republicans?”
The five days of chaos sown by Trump’s own actions showed how his influence is waning in the final weeks of his presidency even as he tries to cling to power. This week the House and Senate are staging votes to override Trump’s veto last week of the annual defense authorization bill. Trump said he will send Congress a list of items in the spending bill he just signed that he would like rescinded. Democrats immediately responded that they will ignore his request.
Start packing your bags, Little Donnie. You’re outta here in 23 days! Joe Biden, a real president, will be inaugurated on Jan. 20th.
Congress Causes Devastating Consequences For America
An economic relief bill was approved by Congress with an overwhelming and bipartisan majority, but Trump refuses to sign it.
As a result, a Brookings Institution report found approximately 10 million workers would lose unemployment compensation effective Dec. 26, with nearly four million more workers being in danger of losing their benefits within weeks, largely because they have been unemployed so long they will have exhausted eligibility in other programs. In addition, government funding will run out at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday.
Now, in a selfish attempt to gain popular support, Trump is insisting that the $600 per person direct coronavirus-relief payments to individuals be increased to $2,000. As a taxpaying citizen, it’s hard to argue with receiving a payment that’s three and a half times higher than what’s in the current bill, but don’t be fooled into thinking that Trump all of a sudden cares about the common voter. It’s nothing more than a self-aggrandizing smoke screen. Trump is evil to the core. He is now throwing members of his own Republican party under the bus, for this is a bipartisan bill, agreed to by both chambers of Congress. Democrats were quick to endorse Trump’s increase in individual payouts, leaving the Republicans to look like fools.
However, face it, folks, Congress is a group of do-nothings that is implicit here. It is a shameful lot that has thrown the people of this country under the bus through its incompetence and inaction for four years now. Its purpose is to represent the people of this country, but has it been representing you? Its new coronavirus relief bill sends billions of dollars to foreign countries while baiting you and me with a pathetic $600 stimulus check. Just what is $600 stimulating?
Trump Continues Damaging America
About 14 million Americans are seeing their jobless benefits expire today after Trump refused to sign into law a $2.3 trillion pandemic aid and spending package, and a partial government shutdown will begin on Tuesday unless Congress can agree to a stop-gap government funding bill before then. But Congress is on vacation while millions of its constituents are suffering financially, while 330,000 Americans have already died of Covid-19, and while Trump plays golf, being fixated only on overturning the results of the election.
And so what is Trump doing for America? Absolutely nothing. Even though he promised to “work tirelessly for the American people,” Trump is ignoring his presidential responsibilities and is playing golf every day at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida — with yesterday being his 309th visit to one of his golf courses since he's been in office. Four years after entering office, Trump continues to demonstrate no aptitude whatsoever for the process of governing.
It’s a very good thing for America that Trump will be out of office at noon on January 20, 2021 — just 25 days from today!
Merry Christmas, America —
All We Want For Christmas Is A New President On Jan. 20th!
We are thrilled to report that Trump suffered yet another defeat on Christmas Eve as a Trump-appointed federal appeals court unanimously rejected his attempt to challenge President-elect Joe Biden’s win by nearly 21,000 votes in Wisconsin.
This legal defeat for Trump at the appeals court came as the U.S. Supreme Court remained mute about his latest bid to get the justices to take up a similar challenge in Pennsylvania. Republicans were also rebuffed yesterday by a Georgia court over a bid to tighten restrictions on dropboxes and increase access for poll watchers in connection with the pivotal twin Senate runoff elections set for Jan. 5.
Reporters were given no details of Trump’s schedule for Christmas Eve, but were specifically told that, “As the Holiday season approaches, President Trump will continue to work tirelessly for the American People.” Yeah, right! Instead of doing his job assisting Congress with a Covid relief bill to provide checks to millions of Americans on the brink, Trump spent his Christmas Eve golfing at his Palm Beach golf club in Florida! Trump is a worthless fool and an incompetent loser!
It’s time that Trump spend less time filing baseless lawsuits and attempting to sabotage the nation for the next president, and more time packing his bags for America’s real Christmas gift — Trump’s removal from office just 26 days from today on Jan. 20, 2021.
Merry Christmas, America!
Trump Issues Pardons Solely To Undermine Prosecutors & Shield Himself From Criminal Investigation
Prior to being ousted from the White House, Trump, the vindictive malignant narcissist who is unfit for office, is pardoning more of his guilty cronies in a move to attempt to shield himself from criminal investigation and certain prosecution once he leaves office — a total of 49 so far.
Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) called for eliminating the presidential pardon power. “Once one party allows the pardon power to become a tool of criminal enterprise, its danger to democracy outweighs its utility as an instrument of justice,” Murphy tweeted. “It’s time to remove the pardon power from the Constitution.”
Republican Senator Ben Sasse (Neb.) said, “This is rotten to the core.”
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) tweeted, “Pardons for Paul Manafort and Roger Stone serve neither justice nor mercy. President Trump is handing out rewards to his co-conspirators and shielding his own conduct from scrutiny.”
Trump would be nothing if he wasn’t so worthless or contemptible. Instead of unifying the nation, he has unnecessarily caused intense political polarization and racial strife, and he is unconcerned about the blowback. He has no value, no worth — he is not redeemable. He is only a millstone around our country’s neck who needs to be dumped.
Thank goodness there are only 27 days left until America ousts this incompetent imbecile and inaugurates Joe Biden, a REAL president! Hopefully then the tax courts, the banks, and the attorneys waiting to pounce on Trump can each have their day in court with him.
Trump = #FakePresident
Trump Issues Pardons to Reward Allies & Undercut the Rule of Law
Mentally ill Trump threatened a “30-Day Reign of Destruction,” and it’s begun.
The Washington Post reported that Trump granted clemency on Tuesday to 20 people, including three of his former Republican member of Congress cronies and two people who were convicted of crimes as part of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Trump gave a full pardon to George Papadopoulos, a foreign policy adviser to his 2016 campaign who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI during its Russia investigation. Trump is abusing the power of his office to attempt to undo the work of the Russia probe that shadowed much of his term.
This is how Trump, the permanently impeached president, attempts to cover up his crimes — he is scum.
He also pardoned four military contractors convicted of killing 14 unarmed Iraqi civilians in Baghdad in 2007.
As House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.) said in a statement, “Trump has valued loyalty above all else — above the rule of law, above our democracy, and certainly above justice. If you lie to cover up for the President, you get a pardon. If you are a corrupt politician who endorsed Trump, you get a pardon. If you murder civilians while at war, you get a pardon.”
Only 28 days until America ousts this incompetent idiot and inaugurates Joe Biden, a REAL president!
The Mentally Ill Sociopath Threatens a 30-Day Reign of Destruction
Trump will retain the powers of the presidency until noon on January 20. In the interim, he is spending day after day in his White House bunker, entertaining crackpot theories about imposing martial law, seizing voting machines and staging an intervention in Congress on January 6 to steal the election from Biden.
Trump is a vindictive and demonic sociopath. He needs to institutionalized in an asylum for the mentally ill.
CNN has reported that Trump is “flinging lies and political venom like King Lear in a crumbling Twitter kingdom, alarming some staffers about what he will do next.” Yesterday he huddled with a cabal of Republican lawmakers who plan to challenge the election on baseless claims of fraud at a special session of Congress to ratify the results on January 6.
Trump is doing irreparable damage to our precious country.
- His behavior has sown huge mistrust of the fundamental underpinning of the US political system — fair elections.
- His indifference to multiple crises stirred by his rule make up another category of his political vandalism. This includes his apathy about a raging pandemic that has infected 18 million Americans and killed nearly 320,000 as an aching nation marks its darkest holiday season in generations.
- There is no sign that Trump cares to offer leadership to ensure the success of the mammoth vaccination program that holds hope of eventually ending the pandemic — this after his denial of the virulence of Covid-19 undoubtedly worsened the death toll.
- He is running interference for Russia, prioritizing the interests of an adversary over America’s after a massive cyberattack blamed on the Kremlin.
- His loss of composure is grave enough from a domestic point of view, but it sends a signal to US adversaries of a vacuum of leadership.
Nearly 317,000 Americans have died of Covid-19, but Trump is concerned instead about having an airport named after himself
How many ways can you say “demonic autocrat” or “malignant narcissist” or “sociopath” or “loser?” Just one: Donald Trump. Face it, Trump is a pathetic loser.
Nearly 317,000 Americans have died of Covid-19 and some of Trump’s aides and advisors have revealed that Trump has now been asking about the process of naming airports after former U.S. presidents. Another knowledgeable source said that Trump had, at one point since the 2020 election, offhandedly asked what kind of “paperwork” was necessary to get an airport named after a former president. This source also said that they’d once heard Trump ramble about what kind of Navy aircraft carrier he’d want commissioned and christened as the “USS Donald Trump.”
Trump has no plan for fighting the pandemic, but he has time to play golf, file baseless claims about voter fraud in the election he clearly lost by a landslide, and now wonder about naming an airport or Navy ship after himself once he leaves office. Trump has only grown more erratic and dangerous as the pressures on him mount.
Well, we have some ideas about airport-naming. First, however, we must make certain that it is befitting of the man it’s named after, namely worthless, catastrophic, appalling, degrading, deplorable, disgusting, embarrassing, forgettable, shameful and useless.
Trump has “never been in a situation in which he has lost in a way he can’t escape from,” said Mary Trump, his niece, psychologist, and the author of the fiercely critical and bestselling book about him and their family. “We continue to wait for him to accept reality, for him to concede, and that is something he is not capable of doing,” added Bandy Lee, the forensic psychiatrist from Yale who’s spent the last four years trying to warn the world about Trump and the ways in which he’s disordered and dangerous. “Being a loser,” she said, for Trump is tantamount to “psychic death.”
Michael Cohen, Trump’s former personal attorney and enforcer, said, “As each day ends, Trump knows he’s one day closer to legal and financial troubles. Accordingly, we will all see his behavior deteriorate until it progresses into a full mental breakdown.”
45, the Biggest Loser, wants the Supreme Court to Overturn Pennsylvania Election Results & Reject the Will of the Voters
Trump, the BIGGEST LOSER in the history of America, has filed a new petition with the Supreme Court. He is asking that it reverse a trio of Pennsylvania Supreme Court cases having to do with mail-in ballots and asks the court to reject the will of the voters and to allow the Pennsylvania General Assembly to pick its own slate of electors.
Trump wants to squelch your voice and mine in the democratic process, and yet there are still ignorant and simpleminded people (i.e. Trump supporters) who are stupid enough to follow this malevolent dictator!
Trump, the malignant narcissist, still won’t admit that he already lost the election a month and a half ago! Even if the court did rule in his favor, President-elect Joe Biden would still be the winner even without Pennsylvania because of Biden’s wide margin of victory in the Electoral College. It makes us wonder whether Trump ever graduated from grammar school, as he obviously can’t do simple arithmetic. Trump gets no respect because he doesn’t deserve any — he is willing to overturn the will of the people for his own personal gain. Trump is a demonic autocrat and an American traitor.
Trump is delusional, an insult to the office, unfit for any elected position in the land, and an embarrassment to the people of the United States. He must be removed from office for the good of America — and that’s exactly what the people are going to do in less than a month — on January 20, 2021.
Trump Is A Traitor
On Friday, Trump convened a meeting in the Oval Office that began as an impromptu gathering including discredited lawyer Sidney Powell, the “conspiracy-minded flamethrower,” and disgraced Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the “traitor to American ideals” and Powell’s convicted and now pardoned client, but it quickly went downhill and eventually broke out into screaming matches as some of Trump's aides pushed back on Powell and Flynn's more outrageous suggestions about overturning the election, including declaring martial law and ordering the military to oversee new elections in the battleground states that Trump lost. Trump’s mere entertainment of invoking martial law to negate Biden's victory underscores how laser-focused he still is on his own interests at a time when the nation is mired in crisis.
Screaming matches in the Oval Office? Does that show a president in control? Hardly. The time is past due for this mentally deficient and unqualified man to be removed from office.
Sidney Powell has been among the most vocal of Trump's advisers to promote the idea that his 2020 election defeat by more than 7 million votes was actually a “mirage,” and Trump buys into this nonsense. He is so desperate that he is now turning to such fringe characters for advice and support. After losing by a landslide over a month and a half ago, Trump is still making fruitless attempts to overturn the results of the election with his baseless accusations of voter fraud. He is still only out for himself.
Then on Saturday, Trump finally addressed the ongoing cyber hacks against the U.S. government for the first time, but he attempted to turn the blame away from the overwhelming intelligence evidence that its source is Russia, and instead, without any evidence whatsoever, blamed it on China! "The Cyber Hack is far greater in the Fake News Media than in actuality. I have been fully briefed and everything is well under control," Trump wrote. Does anybody with a brain believe Trump’s lies?
Trump’s aversion to calling out the Kremlin for its hostile activities in cyberspace and his submission and deference to Russian President Vladimir Putin has become an unfortunate hallmark of his presidency. Trump has repeatedly trusted the word of Putin over the assessments of his own intelligence community. Trump’s tweets Saturday raise fresh concerns that he will seek to shrug off what may turn out to be a cyber hack of unprecedented scale, and that Russia will not be held to account. Trump has complained to his intelligence advisers, who believe Russia is culpable, that the intrusions are a fake narrative meant to damage him politically.
Gregory F. Treverton, a former chairman of the National Intelligence Council, the government’s senior-most provider of intelligence analysis, said that Trump “behaves so much like a paid Russian agent. If you look at the string of his actions and pronouncements, the only consistent interpretation that you can logically draw is that he’s in their thrall.”
Trump’s former national security adviser, John Bolton, expressed alarm over the report that Trump considered a suggestion to implement martial law. In response, Trump blasted Bolton as "one of the dumbest people in Washington.” Presidents who lash out like this give new meaning to the word “asshole.”
Trump is a vindictive traitor who is putting our country at further risk.
Trump Considers Returning To “The Apprentice”
Inside Edition and The Daily Beast have reported that Trump is considering a return to The Apprentice, his failed television show. Good place for a failed president, but maybe the show should more appropriately be renamed The Impeached Apprentice or The Failed Apprentice or The Wanna-Be Apprentice or Who Cares About The Apprentice.
* * * * *
In other news, Business Insider is reporting that a campaign shell company created in part by Jared Kushner spent half of Trump’s massive war chest and secretly paid Trump family members and associates. Lara Trump, the wife of the president’s middle son, Eric Trump, was head of the company, and a nephew of Vice President Mike Pence served as its vice president. Kushner reportedly helped launch the company in early 2018. It was incorporated in Delaware as American Made Media Consultants Corporation (AMMC). AMMC has functioned as a “clearinghouse” to illegally “launder” campaign funds and shield the identities of the ultimate recipients of payments.
It was reported that the Trump campaign “laundered” $170 million largely through American Made Media — as well as firms owned by Brad Parscale, manager of the president’s reelection bid until he was replaced in July — to mask payments to Trump family members, senior Trump campaign staff and advertising vendors. It referred to significant payments to Lara Trump and Kimberly Guilfoyle, the girlfriend of Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr.
Kushner could not immediately be reached for comment.
Trump Is Putin’s Puppet
CNN and The Washington Post have reported that Trump has remained silent as a massive cyber hack by suspected Russian hackers poses “a grave risk to the federal government.” This attack went undetected for months by Trump’s intelligence agencies, and this security breach was detected by a commercial firm. Trump has completely ignored his presidential responsibilities, having been preoccupied instead with his election loss and his baseless claims of widespread voter fraud. If you or I failed to do our jobs as Trump continually fails to do his, we’d be fired — and that’s exactly what the citizens of America are doing to Trump via the election booth.
The breach affected the Department of Homeland Security, the State, Treasury and Commerce departments, the National Institutes of Health, and private corporations, officials have said. Trump’s silence about this organized attack on the U.S. government marks the latest example of his incompetence and his persistent reluctance to criticize Russia, which U.S. intelligence agencies have accused of interfering in the 2016 election to help Trump.
The White House has not listed an intelligence briefing on Trump’s daily schedule since early October, so it's unclear when, if at all, Trump may have taken any interest in being briefed on the latest hack. Nor is it clear how engaged Trump has been in responding to it.
Trump has obviously had plenty of time to tweet about his made-up voter fraud charges, but he’s said absolutely nothing about this cyber threat against America. The shameless and worthless Senate Republicans on Thursday said they didn't see an issue in Trump's silence!
Trump is soft on Putin — afraid of him. Read between the lines. It’s fairly obvious that Putin has something on Trump that Trump is not revealing that keeps him right where Putin wants him — beholden to him as his puppet.
Trump Is Undeniably Mentally Deficient
According to CNN, Trump is in denial about his election loss, and has told some of his advisors he may refuse to leave the White House on Inauguration Day.
Well, get ready to have your ass handed to you on the curb, Donnie Boy. The White House is the people’s house. Period. At noon on Jan. 20, 2021 the presidency belongs to Joe Biden, who legitimately won the election by a landslide. If Trump isn’t out by then, President Biden will gladly have him thrown out for trespassing.
Fox News Halfwit Tucker Carlson Calls Dr. Jill Biden “Borderline Illiterate”
Fox News halfwit Tucker Carlson devoted roughly ten minutes of his show to mocking Dr. Jill Biden’s dissertation, while also claiming the incoming first lady is “borderline illiterate.”
“Jill Biden is not a doctor, no,” Carlson added. “Maybe in the same sense Dr. Pepper is.” He then ramped up his insults by saying that Dr. Biden’s “doctoral dissertation was our national shame.”
Carlson's ignorant and controversial statements on race, immigration and women have rightfully led to advertiser boycotts against the show.
Carlson was the one who brought up names of people in the Georgia election who he said were dead voters, while it was later found that those people were, in fact, alive. In July 2020, Axios noted the similarities between Carlson's nightly monologues and certain speeches made by Trump.
Tucker has a bachelor’s degree in history from Trinity College in Hartford, CT. After college, Carlson tried to join the Central Intelligence Agency, but his application was denied. Dr. Jill Biden received her Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) in educational leadership from the University of Delaware in 2007 at age 55.
Betsy DeVos: Another Trump Flunkie With No Qualifications For The Job
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, another Trump flunkie without the experience or qualifications for the job, pressed staffers at the Education Department to “be the resistance” when the Biden administration comes into power next month.
Betsy’s only qualification for the job is that she is a billionaire who donated heavily to the Trump campaign. During her time in office, she has been lobbying mainly to end free public education and to replace it with profit corporations funded by taxpayers.
Betsy never attended a public school, her children never attended public school, and she has never before held a position in public office. According to the Trump administration, that would make her perfectly qualified for the job!
It’s high time that she starts packing her bags. DeVos should have no place in the Biden administration.
Trump Pockets Republican Donations Intended For Georgia Senate Runoffs
Politico has reported that Trump, the paunchy asshole pictured here playing golf while the coronavirus death toll surpassed 300,000 yesterday, has been asking his supporters to “fork over cash for the all-important Georgia Senate runoff elections,” but instead he’s been siphoning donors’ money and pocketing it for his newly launched PAC, which he plans to use to fund his personal future political activities — so the campaigns of the Georgia senators in the Jan. 5 race aren’t getting a red cent while Trump lines his pockets.
Predictably, a Trump campaign spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment.
Trump’s fundraising ploy has rankled senior Republicans. The predicament has intensified broader concerns within the GOP that Trump will use his post-presidency to advance his own interests at the expense of the party.
“The reality is Donald Trump does not care about the future of the Republican Party, so if he can raise money off of the Georgia runoffs but keep the money for his own purposes, he will do so,” said Doug Heye, a veteran GOP strategist.
This is yet another example of the underhanded actions of the liar and cheat who currently occupies the Oval Office. He is a malignant narcissist who only cares about himself. Trump is nothing but scum.
Josh Shapiro, the Pennsylvania Attorney General, has called Republicans’ unwavering support of Trump “a cancer on this country.”
George Conway, co-founder of the Lincoln Project, said that Trump is 1) delusional, 2) running a financial scam on the American people, and 3) malevolent. He added that Trump can’t see the truth through his own lies and his own fantasies.
The scary part is that there are stupid people who are still believing Trump’s lies and following their cult leader, even after his certified and decisive loss to President-Elect Joe Biden.
Electoral College to Validate Trump’s Loss Today!
Today is a momentous day.
It’s the day when Trump will suffer a withering blow to his increasingly hopeless effort to overturn the results of the US presidential election when the 538 members of the electoral college will cast their ballots and formally send Joe Biden to the White House.
In an interview with Fox & Friends that aired on Sunday, Trump insisted that his anti-democratic mission was not over. “We keep going and we’re going to continue to go forward,” he said, before repeating a slew of lies about the election having been rigged.
So what can we expect from Trump after he’s ousted from the White House? Based on his past behavioral patterns of supporting white nationalists, attempting to suppress both the voice of the free press and now the voice of the people in the election, his attempt to stack the courts with conservative justices, his firing of anyone who doesn’t agree with him, his name calling of anyone and everyone around him, and countless other dysfunctional, malignant narcissistic actions, we can expect nothing short of his continuing to cause agitation to the point of civil war.
Cases in point:
- In Washington DC, four people were stabbed and required hospital treatment, and 23 were arrested, when far-right groups clashed with counter-protesters following a so-called “Stop the Steal” march enthusiastically endorsed by Trump.
- Violence also broke out in Olympia, WA, with Trump supporters and Proud Boys facing off against counter-protesters.
- More violence broke out in Georgia where Georgia Security Force III%, the armed militia group that helped to organize recent caravans that intimidated local election officials at their homes, was in attendance.
- Gabriel Sterling, the Republican election official who criticized Trump at a Dec. 1 news conference by saying, "Stop inspiring people to commit potential acts of violence. Someone's going to get hurt,” has been receiving death threats.
This Asshole Plays Golf While Americans Die
As of 6:00pm (EST) today, 299,225 Americans have died of Covid-19, with more Americans having died of the coronavirus this past week than were killed in the World Trade Center attack, and yet the incompetent asshole pictured here in the red hat had time today to play golf at the Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Va.
This asshole gets no respect very simply because he deserves none.
Spineless Republicans Are Speechless
Yesterday, the Supreme Court handed down a stinging 9-0 defeat in Trump’s final attempt to deny Americans the right for their votes to be counted before the Electoral College meets tomorrow to confirm Joe Biden as the next President of the United States.
Even Trump’s own Supreme Court appointees didn’t stand behind his baseless lawsuit.
The bad news is that a majority of congressional Republicans chose to support an evil demagogue over our democracy. That should not be forgotten or forgiven by the voters in the next election. These 126 hyper-partisan politicians should now be known as members of the autocrat caucus. The majority of these spineless Republican legislators remain speechless. The cat’s got their tongue. Somehow they live in fear of retribution from their demonic, outgoing cult leader. Of the 17 Republican attorneys general who endorsed Trump’s case, filed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, not a single one agreed to be interviewed by The New York Times. Paxton, who had issued a statement merely calling the decision “unfortunate,” did not respond to a request for comment. Let’s not forget that Paxton has been indicted on two counts of securities fraud and one count of failing to register with state securities regulators — all felonies. Could it be that Paxton filed Trump’s lawsuit before the Supreme Court in an attempt to obtain a presidential pardon? Oh no, he wouldn’t do that! Yeah, right.
On Capitol Hill, the response to the Supreme Court’s decision was particularly muted among the 126 spineless House Republicans who signed onto the brief backing the suit. Questions and requests for comments sent to the offices of more than two dozen top congressional Republicans were either declined or ignored. Cowards!
Lack of backbone is a common trait in the Republican party.
Trump Has A Brain and Behavioral Disorder
Politico has reported what the science of addiction tells us about Trump.
Trump has made grievance and retaliation a primary feature of his life and presidency, from the thousands of lawsuits he has filed to, most recently, his repeated and baseless claims of national election fraud.
James Kimmel, Jr., a lecturer in psychiatry at the Yale University School of Medicine and a violence researcher who studies the role of grievances and retaliation in violent crime, has found that a brain on grievance looks a lot like a brain on drugs. In fact, brain imaging studies show that harboring a grievance (a perceived wrong or injustice, real or imagined) activates the same neural reward circuitry as narcotics. This isn’t a metaphor; it’s brain biology.
One hallmark of addiction is compulsive behavior despite harmful consequences. Trump’s unrelenting efforts to retaliate against those he believes have treated him unjustly (including, now, American voters) appear to be compulsive and uncontrollable. The harm this causes to himself and others is obvious but seems to have no deterrent effect. Reports suggest Trump has been doing this for much of his life. He also seems to derive a great deal of pleasure from it. Trump has a brain and behavioral disorder.
The science of addiction provides another cautionary insight: Trump’s revenge habit hurts not only himself and the targets of his retaliatory wrath, but the rest of us, too.
Like substance addiction, revenge addiction appears to spread from person to person. Trump is able to spread his grievances to thousands or millions of others through Twitter, TV and rallies. His demand for retribution becomes their demand, causing his supporters to crave retaliation.
What can be done? There are no quick fixes with addiction. We’re in for a long haul. Assuming Trump does not seek help, what can we expect from him going forward? Tragically, more of the same.
Firm steps are necessary to limit the damage Trump’s grievances are inflicting on this country. The first step was the nationwide electoral “intervention” with Trump, which had the dual benefit of helping to protect the country from further damage and showed Trump that his retaliatory behavior is no longer acceptable. But that seems to be backfiring with Trump, as he seems even more aggrieved and more determined to use retaliation. The next positive step is kicking Trump out of office and the White House on January 20th.
Trump’s Texas Lawsuit Was Rightfully
Rejected By the Supreme Court!
Trump, the dictatorial autocrat who would have your voice and mine squelched for his own personal gain, lost another legal battle, this one at the Supreme Court level. This is the end of the line for Trump’s legal push to overturn the election by nullifying hundreds of thousands of votes. Trump knew he was a loser even before his devious theatrical legal move; even his hand-picked justices didn’t back his baseless lawsuit.
The conservative court with three justices appointed by Trump refused to be drawn into the extraordinary effort by Trump and many prominent members of his party to deny his Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., his rightful victory. This was the most significant setback for Trump in a litigation campaign based mostly on hearsay and conjecture that was rejected by courts at every turn.
Trump was clearly wrong to think the Supreme Court, even after he appointed a third of its members, would do his dastardly and evil bidding. With the Electoral College set to meet on Monday, Trump’s efforts to change the outcome of the election will soon be at an end.
Despite the court ruling, Trump’s campaign plans to continue describing the election outcome as illegitimate. Trump can call it whatever he wants. He’s evil and incompetent. The most important thing is that Trump will lose his power and be out of the White House on January 20, 2021.
A new Fox News poll just reported that most voters don’t want Trump to run again in 2024 and that he will be remembered as one of the worst president’s in the history of the United States. The majority of voters disapprove of how Trump has handled major political issues during his presidency. Duh!
Congratulations to Joe Biden, a real leader and the next President of the United States!
Donald “Beelzebub” Trump!
Trump is not “OF” the devil.
Trump “IS” the devil himself!
Trump’s latest scheme to deny the citizens of America their right to vote came after he met with several state attorneys general backing a Trump-goaded lawsuit by Texas Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton, charging that Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Georgia and Michigan changed voting rules without their legislatures' express approval ahead of the election — a long-shot legal move that Pennsylvania blasted as a "seditious abuse of the judicial process." Paxton was indicted for felony securities fraud less than a year after he was sworn in. Gee, this move couldn’t be to obtain a presidential pardon, could it?
On Thursday, more than two dozen states have already filed motions with the U.S. Supreme Court opposing Texas' bid to invalidate President-elect Joe Biden's legitimate win in those four battleground states.
Josh Shapiro, Pennsylvania’s attorney general, said, “Overturning Pennsylvania’s election results is contrary to any metric of fairness and would do nothing less than deny the fundamental right to vote to millions of Pennsylvania’s citizens.” Shapiro continued, saying, "nothing in the text, history, or structure of the Constitution supports Texas’s view that it can dictate the manner in which four other states run their elections.”
So we now see how Trump, the devil, operates: he stacked the Supreme Court with his own cronies, and then when he doesn’t get his way, he’s attempting to get his cronies to vote in his favor.
* * * * *
President-Elect Joe Biden reportedly is planning a deep clean of the White House once Trump leaves. Very good move! We need to eliminate every remaining molecule of the vermin that’s inhabited the people’s house for the last four years.
The Caged Animal is Desperate!
Trump is like a rabid, caged animal!
He has lost the election, but refuses to concede. He’s a dictator who is trying to throw aside the Constitution on which our great nation was formed, all for his own personal gain. He is mentally ill.
Trump, the newly minted loser, has fabricated lies about election fraud and filed baseless lawsuits in an attempt to overturn the will of the people. Read my lips, Donnie: Ain’t gonna happen!
In his latest fruitless attempt to remain in office as the autocratic dictator, Trump has enlisted the support of 17 of his cult-following attorneys general in a brief filed with the Supreme Court to use the power of public office to come to his aid as he continues to deny the reality of his loss with baseless claims of voter fraud. This latest lawsuit is seeking to delay the certification of the presidential electors in four battleground states that Trump lost. Trump has been holding out hope that the Supreme Court will hear the case and ultimately award him a second term. Legal experts are skeptical, however, and have largely dismissed it as yet another publicity stunt.
The closer we get to President-Elect Biden’s inauguration on January 20th, the more rabid Trump is acting.
All of this “theater” from Trump is happening against the backdrop of the United States setting a single-day record yesterday of 3,140 deaths from the coronavirus. But Trump has ignored his duties as president and still has no national plan to defeat the spread of the virus — this malignant narcissist is only interested in himself. Trump is unfit for any office.
Trump’s attempt to overturn Biden’s win in Pennsylvania couldn’t be more boring
Yawn! The Supreme Court has rejected a bid by a Republican member of Congress and other GOP activists to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s win in Pennsylvania. Couldn’t be more boring! Just take a look at these legislators! Are they walking in their sleep? How many more times does Trump want to lose the election to President-elect Joe Biden, and when will his Republican flunkies on Capitol Hill wake up and recognize reality?
One’s actions indicate one’s level of stupidity. “Stupid is as stupid does.” (Forrest Gump)
In a one-sentence order on Tuesday afternoon, the justices turned down the emergency request from Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.) and two other House candidates to decertify the results of last month’s election in the Keystone State.
Time to get over it, Donnie, and admit you’re the biggest LOSER.
THE BIGGEST LOSER!
TRUMP = USELESS & WORTHLESS
The New York Times reported that Trump called the Republican speaker of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives twice in recent days to encourage challenges to the official election results in the state.
Trump has contacted top Republicans in at least three states in an unsuccessful effort to undo his loss to President-Elect Joe Biden.
This is getting to be old news from Public Enemy #1.
This was the people’s election, not Trump’s. The will of the people was clear. Nothing is going to change that. Trump LOST. Joe Biden WON.
Get over it, Donnie. You’re nothing but the biggest LOSER, as well as a liar and a cheat.
The midterm Republican primaries in 2022 are going to become contests of who stood behind Trump in his baseless claims that undermined faith in our democracy; and those spineless legislators should start packing their bags as well. There’s no place in America for those who supported an autocratic dictator.
“We are seeing extremists who claim they love the Constitution, but who want to throw the Constitution away just because the president lost his bid for re-election.” (Pennsylvania State Representative Joanna E. McClinton)

CBS News reported that vindictive Trump has removed Dr. James Phillips, the emergency room physician who publicly criticized his decision to drive with Secret Service agents to wave at supporters while he was hospitalized with COVID-19 in October, from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center's schedule starting in January. This is an action from a worthless, banana republic dictator, not an American president. After Trump’s potential coronavirus-spreading joy ride, Dr. Phillips tweeted, "Every single person...in the vehicle during that completely unnecessary Presidential "drive-by" just now has to be quarantined for 14 days. They might get sick. They may die. For political theater. Commanded by Trump to put their lives at risk for theater. This is insanity."
It makes the country wonder whether Trump really had COVID-19, or whether this was just another of his staged publicity stunts in order to gain attention and take attention off of Joe Biden’s campaign, which was gaining momentum prior to the November election.
Trump, the RACIST PIG, tweeted that Rudy Giuliani has tested positive for the “China Virus”
The “China Virus?”
The Wall Street Journal reported that Trump tweeted that Rudy Giuliani, his personal lawyer, has been admitted to Georgetown University Medical Center with Covid-19.
Giuliani is 76 years old and has been crisscrossing the country in dealing with Trump’s baseless election fraud lawsuits, most of the time without wearing a mask. Giuliani has repeatedly disregarded public health guidelines, appearing maskless in state capitols, hotel ballrooms and at indoor news conferences. At some of those events, Giuliani was spotted shaking hands, hugging and taking pictures with people while not wearing a mask. Last week, Giuliani testified maskless in front of Michigan state legislators — and even asked a witness to take off her mask in an effort to understand her better. He was most recently at the Georgia Capitol in Atlanta on Thursday to attend a Georgia state Senate hearing on the November election. During a break in the hearing, Giuliani removed the mask he was wearing to greet and take pictures with supporters.
Trump has repeatedly downplayed the coronavirus and resisted public health guidance meant to prevent the spread of the illness. As the number of Covid-19 cases and deaths have been on the rise, the White House has continued to flout CDC recommendations and host large events without masks and little social distancing. Trump will be hosting a string of holiday parties featuring large crowds indoors, ignoring both CDC and Washington, DC, restrictions for indoor gatherings, which is currently capped at 10 people. So there’s still time for Trump to catch Covid-19 again before we throw him out of the White House on January 20th.
Trump LIES again about winning Georgia
Trump is a mental case. He’s a delusional loser who erroneously thinks that spewing forth lies will change reality. He’s a hopeless fool.
The Associated Press reported that Trump flooded his first postelection political rally with debunked conspiracy theories and audacious falsehoods as he claimed victory in an election he decisively lost. The one and only thing Trump is good at is serial lying.
Joe Biden beat Trump in Georgia by 13,000 votes, but Trump held a coronavirus super-spreader rally last night in Valdosta, Georgia, where his opening remark was “You know we won Georgia, just so you understand. We didn’t lose.”
Sorry, Donnie, you’re mentally deficient and are living in your altered state of reality again. Trump definitely needs to be institutionalized for his mental illness — “Lock Him Up” for the good of America.
Joe Biden won. Trump is the biggest loser.
Trump’s comments came hours after he phoned Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, a Republican, asking the governor to call a special session of the state legislature and to push lawmakers to illegally appoint pro-Trump electors who would swing the Electoral College in his favor. Kemp appropriately refused.
Throughout his maskless super-spreader rally, Trump alleged that illegal voting had taken place in November. It didn’t.
Pro-Trump lawyers L. Lin Wood and Sidney Powell have been urging voters not to vote in the Georgia Senate runoffs and are promoting an unsupported allegation that the state’s voting machines were rigged and must be fixed. This is great news for Democrats, who we urge to turn out in huge numbers to defeat the Republicans and regain a majority in the U.S. Senate.
At his rally, Trump even compared the Democrats to the MS-13 street gang when he said, “We moved thousands and thousands of MS-13 the hell out of our country. They're vicious, but they're not stupid. Sort of like the Democrats if you think about it."
Trump is mentally ill.
Over the past week, Trump posted or reposted about 145 messages on Twitter lashing out at the results of an election he lost, but mentioned the coronavirus pandemic now reaching its darkest hours only four times — and even then just to assert that he was right about the outbreak and that the experts were wrong. Trump’s lack of leadership is a danger to the United States of America.
Trump is an unfortunate mental case. Trump’s nothing but a worthless PIG who doesn’t give a damn about the American people he pledged to protect — he’s proven that over and over. So no American should give a damn about anything Trump says or about whatever happens to him.
Trump once again illegally attempts to interfere in the results of the people’s election
The Washington Post reported that Trump called Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp today, pushing him to illegally convince state legislators to overturn President-elect Joe Biden's win in the state. Trump asked Kemp to call a special session and convince state legislators to select their own electors that would support him — overriding the will of the voters for his own selfish gain!
CNN reported that Trump had recently bashed Kemp, who is a supporter of his, as a "moron" and a "nut job" during another phone call. And earlier this week, Trump publicly criticized the governor in an interview on Fox News, saying he was "ashamed" he had endorsed Kemp.
Trump is an absolute embarrassment to the United States of America, and Gov. Kemp should have told Trump to kiss his ass for asking him to illegally interfere in the people’s election!
In addition, the New York Daily News is reporting that this Trump wants to name and shame the two dozen-plus members of Congress who say he lost the election. Trump asked for a list of the elected officials who told the Washington Post that they accept that President-elect Joe Biden won last month’s contest so that he could find a way to retaliate against them. Trump is a worthless pig!
Trump is a Pig!
Trump removed nine members of the Pentagon's NONPARTISAN Defense Business Board on Friday and installed Trump loyalists in their place, including unqualified presidential allies Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie. The firings marked the latest spiteful effort by the Trump administration to clean out the Defense Department in the final weeks of his term and to make it as difficult as possible for President Biden to have a smooth and seamless transition into office. Trump is something just beneath being a pig. He is obviously mentally deranged, unbalanced, and demonic.
Michael Bayer, who was the Defense Business Board chairman, said, "This kind of a move really will weigh heavily on people in the future and their willingness to serve on these outside advisory boards if they're going to be subjected to political loyalty tests. It's unprecedented. I'm just saddened.” The firings came as a shock to the board members, who had not received any negative feedback or warning prior to their termination. One former board member lamented the move, noting that the board “has never been political, ever.”
This was another spiteful and vengeful move on behalf of Trump.
Yesterday, the Washington Post reported that Trump has refused to allow members of President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team to meet with officials at U.S. intelligence agencies that are controlled by the Pentagon, undermining prospects for a smooth transfer of power.
It’s very obvious that Trump would be nothing if he wasn’t a vindictive pig. What kind of a man acts out of pure vengeance instead of being a president who is a servant of the people of the United States? Answer: Donald Trump, the worst president in all of American history and the unqualified and impeached loser.
President Biden’s first act should be to fire all Trump appointees — clean house of all of the pig’s loyalists and start fresh with appointees who have the actual credentials and experience for such jobs. In other words, mop up Trump’s slop.
* * * * *
Yesterday, in other news, Trump lost SIX of his baseless lawsuits in states pivotal to his push to overturn the election results — Wisconsin, Arizona, Nevada, Georgia, Michigan and Minnesota. Politico reported that it was another harsh milestone in a monthlong run of Trump’s legal futility, accompanied by sharp rebukes from county, state and federal judges who continue to express shock at Trump’s effort to simply scrap the results of an election he lost. Several of the most devastating opinions have come from conservative judges and, in some federal cases, Trump’s own appointees. It’s time, Donnie, that you face the fact that you’re nothing but a pathetic loser.
Take Him Down!
Lock Him Up!
Trump faces a slew of legal issues on the federal and state levels once he's out of office on January 20. New York Attorney General Letitia James is conducting a civil investigation into the Trump Organization's business practices. And a federal court filing from Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance suggested he was conducting an investigation into Trump and the Trump Organization on suspicion of bank and insurance fraud.
Trump was also named "Individual-1" in a filing by the Southern District of New York when his former attorney Michael Cohen was charged with making hush-money payments. And a lawsuit from two attorneys general alleged he violated the Constitution's emoluments clause. His inaugural committee also faces a lawsuit alleging it schemed to funnel nonprofit money into the Trump family business.
Now, both the Washington Post and Politico have reported that Trump has raised $495 million in just one month since the November election, in a post-election fundraising effort using a blizzard of misleading appeals about the integrity of the vote. Much of that money is likely to get funneled into an account for Trump to use any way he pleases on personal, self-serving political activities after he leaves office, and not on his baseless lawsuits in his legal fight against nonexistent election fraud. Translated, that means more bait and switch from Trump!
Thankfully, the New York authorities will stop at nothing to go after Trump. In the same tone that Trump chanted “Lock Her Up” in reference to Hillary Clinton, we say “Take Him Down! Take Him Down!” Trump is not above the law. If he’s guilty, then “Take Him Down. Lock Him Up.” Put him in a cage where he belongs.
* * * * *
Only 10 more days until the Electoral College casts and counts its votes on Dec. 14, certifying Joe Biden as the winner of the presidential election.
Trump is always into big numbers.
100,226 — that’s how many people are currently hospitalized in the US with Covid-19 on Trump’s watch, according to the Covid Tracking Project!
The useless fool in the Oval Office is filing baseless lawsuits about election fraud and playing golf while the pandemic is fueling enormous strain on the health care system and its brave but beleaguered workers.
Trump is the new synonym for the word incompetence — the words are now interchangeable.
Experts are saying that the number of Covid-19 hospitalizations could soon double! Many hospitals will be forced to suspend elective surgeries and other routine operations, set up temporary field hospitals, and stretch staff to the limit, experts said.
And why? Because of the incompetence of Donald J. Trump, the do-nothing, mentally deficient idiot who acted too late and who still has no national plan to stop the spread of the virus. Trump is depending on vaccines to bail him out from his incompetence, but they’re going to happen too late. The horse is already out of the barn, and all because Trump failed to act nearly a year ago.
It’s now been reported that even though Americans have been strongly urged by the CDC to stay home for the holidays and cancel in-person gatherings amid a fresh surge in COVID-19 cases, Trump is ignoring health experts’ advice and is still planning to host White House holiday parties. Melania Trump said that these parties will take place in "the safest environment possible" and noted a series of planned precautions. All such gatherings contradict health experts’ warnings on events staged even partially indoors. U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams told ABC News that the CDC's tips "apply to the White House, they apply to the American people, they apply to everyone. We want everyone to understand that these holiday celebrations can be super-spreader events.”
Ignorance, carelessness, selfishness, defiance and incompetence are running rampant in the Trump White House.
The White House landlord has asked Trump for his forwarding address for a security deposit. All that’s left to do is let the U-Haul movers pull up to the White House on January 20, 2021, and ship Trump’s belongings down to Mar-a-Lago! We propose that the citizens of America start a GoFundMe page to fund that move even sooner!
pardon [pahr-dn], noun. Forgiveness of a serious offense or offender.
The New York Times is reporting that Trump is considering granting pre-emptive pardons to his children, to his son-in-law and to his personal lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani.
Logically, and according to the definition, if you didn’t commit a serious offense or you’re not an offender, then there’s nothing at all to forgive and no reason whatsoever for a pardon. Therefore, even the implication of offering a pardon admits guilt.
Donald Trump, Jr. — Guilty!
Eric Trump — Guilty!
Ivanka Trump — Guilty!
Jared Kushner — Guilty!
Rudy Giuliani — Guilty!
Are these baseless accusations? No more baseless than Trump’s baseless and uncorroborated accusations of election fraud. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.
Hear No Evil
See No Evil
Speak (and Tweet) No Evil
We have many spineless Republicans in Congress without a moral compass — just like Trump.
Trump's baseless charges of election fraud have grown more and more malicious, venomous and vindictive. Under the facade of the phrase “election fraud,” Trump is trying to deny segments of the population their voice in the democratic process.
Yesterday, Joe DiGenova, another idiot attorney for Trump’s reelection efforts, said that Chris Krebs, the former head of U.S. cybersecurity, should be “shot” for going against Trump’s conspiracy theories and declaring the 2020 elections as secure.
What is unfathomable is the silence of congressional Republican leaders without a backbone who are sitting by idly and avoiding challenging Trump’s wild conspiracy theories. Out of a sense of fear of Trump’s retaliation, these worthless scumbags are either quietly sitting on their thumbs and passively endorsing Trump, or else actively supporting Trump’s wild and baseless claims of election fraud in spite of every state’s vote recounts favoring Joe Biden, and courts throwing out Trump’s frivolous lawsuits without even a single shred of proof of election tampering. There was simply zero evidence of actual voter fraud or malicious machine malfunction anywhere in the country.
This resembles the party’s deference to Sen. Joe McCarthy in the 1950’s with his scattershot claims of treason and Communist infiltration! A significant faction of Senate Republicans didn't join with Democrats to curb McCarthy's power — just as they are sitting by idly today with Trump. The end result was that it took years for these brainwashed Republicans to unshackle themselves from McCarthy.
Bill Kristol, Trump critic, conservative strategist and former chief of staff under Vice President Dan Quayle in the George H. W. Bush administration, says, “This is as if we've had the Army-McCarthy hearings and everyone is just quiet. No one is rethinking anything. It was easier to get beyond McCarthy than it will be to get beyond Trump.” It appears that today's congressional Republicans have sold their souls to demonic Trump and surrendered even more fully to his feverish and baseless claims than their predecessors did to McCarthy's — and this is doing irreparable damage to the United States of America.
Our next “battle” will be to educate the masses to vote out every one of these spineless Republican legislators who did not do what they were elected to do, namely represent the interests of their constituents.
