The Debate: Trump Proved He’s A PIG
The first presidential debate had rules that both parties agreed to follow. But instead, Trump turned the debate into a chaotic “shit show.” (We predicted that he’d do this in our 9/26/20 posting — check it out).
In short, Trump, the incessant and uncouth interrupter and serial liar, made a fool of himself by not even allowing Chris Wallace, the debate’s moderator, to get a word in edgewise. Trump is lower than a schoolyard bully, and he needs a muzzle. He proved that he’s an arrogant and ignorant fool with no class whatsoever.
The Guardian in the U.K. said that Trump is a “national humiliation.” Israel’s leading TV anchor, referring to Trump, said, “Condolences to America. It is hard to stoop lower than this.” Multiple Pew Research Center reports find that America's international image has suffered during Trump's presidency.
Trump proved to the world that he is nothing but a lowly, filthy pig.
Pigs love to roll in the muck and the shit, and that’s all Trump did during his pathetic performance. Trump has no platform and no plan; he only picked dirty fights, accepted no responsibility for his many failures, refused to denounce white supremacy (while giving a wink and a nod to the Proud Boys — a far right, racist, neo-fascist, murderous organization), and casted blame on everyone and everything other than himself for the problems that occurred on his watch. Like every other president before him, Trump has had almost four years to make this country better, but he’s done nothing. Trump is a disgrace to America.
For future debates, the moderator should be able to mute Trump’s microphone each time he ignores the agreed-upon rules and interrupts.
After the debate, CBS News’ fact checking proved that Trump filled his time with lies and misleading claims.
After Trump’s abysmal performance, it would be difficult to understand how anyone but very stupid people could cast a ballot for him.
Trump exhibits the symptoms of a serious mental disorder and should be committed, not reelected. He is unfit for any elected office.
A vote for Biden is a vote for a better America!
The Presidential Debate: Esteemed Statesman vs. Malignant Narcissist
Place your bets, folks, on whether or not Trump can debate by focusing on issues rather than personal attacks, on whether he can follow the rules without interrupting, on whether he can answer the questions posed rather than wandering off-topic, on whether he can take responsibility for his faults rather than denying, dismissing, deflecting, denigrating, dividing and destroying, and whether he can last 90 minutes without using his worn-out and inappropriate term of “fake news.”
Trump can’t do it. He’ll once again show his true colors, his narcissism, and his incompetence as a leader. Topics and priorities change all the time. This debate is far more about evaluating leadership qualities and styles than it is about any of the current issues — who can accept and handle responsibility, how one reacts in a crisis, how empathetic a candidate can be under stress, etc. That’s what this debate will reveal.

TRUMP = TAX CHEAT!
Read this carefully, fellow Americans, as you prepare to vote in the November election!
The New York Times has obtained Trump’s tax return data for more than two decades, and here’s what it revealed about the president who increased your taxes and mine:
- Trump paid no federal income taxes in 11 of 18 years.
- Trump’s tax bill was only $750 in 2016 and then again in 2017 after he became president.
- Trump has reduced his tax bill with questionable measures, including a $72.9 million tax refund that is the subject of an audit by the Internal Revenue Service.
- Many of Trump’s signature businesses, including his golf courses, report losing large amounts of money — losses that have helped him to lower his taxes.
- The financial pressure on Trump is increasing as hundreds of millions of dollars in loans he personally guaranteed are soon coming due.
- Even while declaring losses, Trump has managed to enjoy a lavish lifestyle by taking tax deductions on what most people would consider personal expenses, including residences, aircraft and $70,000 in hairstyling for television. How many haircuts were you able to deduct on our taxes?
- Ivanka Trump, while working as an employee of the Trump Organization, appears to have received “consulting fees” that also helped reduce the family’s tax bill.
- As president, Trump has received more money from foreign sources and U.S. interest groups than previously known.
- This tax avoidance sets Trump apart from most other affluent Americans. Most affluent people still pay a lot of federal income tax. According to the IRS, in 2017 the average federal income rate for the highest-earning .001 percent of tax filers — that is, the most affluent 1/100,000th slice of the population — was 24.1 percent! Over the past two decades, Trump paid about $400 million less in combined federal income taxes than a very wealthy person who paid the average for that group each year.
- Barack Obama and George W. Bush each regularly paid more than $100,000 a year — and sometimes much more — in federal income taxes while in office. By contract, Trump is trying to run a federal government to which he has contributed almost no income tax revenue in many years.
- Across nearly all of his projects, Trump’s companies set aside about 20 percent of income for unexplained ‘consulting fees.’ These fees reduce taxes, because companies are able to write them off as a business expense, lowering the amount of final profit subject to tax. Since 2010, Trump has written off some $26 million in such fees. Ivanka appears to have received some of these consulting fees, despite having been a top Trump Organization executive.
Trump and his immediate family will lie and cheat their way through life with a straight face at the expense of the middle class. Trump cares about no one except himself. It’s time the American public vote this cheat out of office.
VOTE THE IMPEACHED LIAR & TAX CHEAT OUT OF OFFICE!
Prepare To Evict The Trespasser
The White House is the people’s house, not Trump’s house. If Trump loses the election but refuses to concede, the Democrats must be prepared to physically oust the malignant narcissist as a trespasser immediately after Joe Biden takes the oath of office at the inauguration at noon on Wednesday, January 20, 2021. The minute Biden takes the oath, he becomes the president of the United States, and thankfully Trump loses all his power and reverts back to being nothing more than “citizen Trump.”
The Twentieth Amendment (Amendment XX) to the United States Constitution, adopted on January 23, 1933, states that the terms of the President and Vice President shall end at noon on the 20th day of January. This is not debatable.
Under Title 18 of the U.S. Code, Section 1752, “whoever knowingly enters or remains in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority to do so” is punishable by a fine under this title or imprisonment for not more than one year, or both.
Lock Him Up!
When Does The Liar Lie?
Whenever His Lips Are Moving
- Trump, who knew about the deadliness of Covid-19 since January, and who did nothing, is responsible for the needless deaths of many tens of thousands of Americans. He dismissed every warning from health experts, misjudged the virus at every turn, and in terms of the pandemic, some of his vices — venality, dishonesty, self-absorption, dereliction, and heedlessness — turned deadly. When a leader lies about a plague, people die. So far, more than 204,000 Americans have already died on Trump’s watch while he still has no viable national plan to fight the pandemic. Trump’s incompetence is unconscionable and inexcusable.
- Trump continues to lie about hydroxychloroquine, his discredited cure for the virus.
- Trump continues to lie about there being a vaccine ready and available before the election, solely to boost his numbers in the polls.
- Trump continues to lie about there being widespread fraud in mail-in voting, while the conclusion of his own White House commission on voter fraud was that it is exceedingly rare.
- Trump lies about Black Lives Matter protesters being anarchists.
- Trump lies about the California wildfires, saying they are caused by forest mismanagement, and not climate change.
- Trump says there is no such thing as climate change.
- Trump abused the power of his office, lied to the American people, and was subsequently IMPEACHED.
- Trump lies and then denies it, even when his lies are recorded by the press on video — Trump is a serial liar.
- In short, in Trump’s world, everything that benefits him is true, and everything that inconveniences him is false.
“VOTE HIM OUT!”
Get Ready For Trump’s “Shit Show”
The Washington Post reported that Trump is gearing up to launch blistering personal attacks on Joe Biden and his family in the first presidential debate this coming Tuesday. So what else is new from a no-class autocrat?
Biden and his advisers are anticipating a venomous barrage since Trump has no substance, no platform and no record on which to stand. He can only attack like the malicious, malignant narcissist that he is, with personal insults and outright lies that are below the dignity of the office of president. Trump’s consistent and predictable pattern is to DENY, DISMISS, DEFLECT, DENIGRATE, DIVIDE and DESTROY. So he will be denying, calling most everything the free press publishes “fake news,” not answering questions, changing the subject often, lying profusely, interrupting constantly, projecting the fault on anything or anyone other than himself, taking blame for nothing and attempting to take credit where none is due. Hopefully Chris Wallace, the debate’s moderator from Fox News, can keep Trump on a short leash. Trump has no class whatsoever, so the voters don’t expect much from him, and as such, he won’t disappoint.
Biden would be well-advised to follow George Bernard Shaw’s advice: Don’t get in a fight with a pig because you’ll both get dirty, but the pig will like it. Voters, on the other hand, would be well advised to review the symptoms of those with a narcissistic personality disorder to check off how many of these mental deficiencies Trump displays during the debate which would make him unfit for the position of president. Hint: don’t be surprised if he exhibits all of the symptoms. Click here.
Simply because Trump will be a participant on stage, the debate can only be a “shit show” of epic proportions.
VOTE FOR JOE BIDEN ON NOV. 3
K-K-Kayleigh From The Swamp
Trump visited the Supreme Court on Thursday to “pay his respects” (ahem!) to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and was met by boos, heckling, and chants of "vote him out" from the assembled crowd.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany later told reporters, “I think the chants were appalling but certainly to be expected when you’re in the heart of the swamp.”
Kayleigh certainly has no credibility. She is a propagandist instead of a public servant. Earlier this week, when asked directly if the President had lied to the American public even as Trump was caught in his own lies about his early knowledge of the coronavirus during his interviews with Bob Woodward, McEnany once again perpetuated Trump’s lies and had the gall to say, "The President has never lied to the American public on Covid." Here you go, Kayleigh, drink another glass of Trump’s Kool-Aid! CNN’s fact checking proves that Trump made 200 false claims from early June to early July, with forty-one of those false claims being about the virus and the pandemic.
Trump’s visit yesterday to the casket of Ruth Bader Ginsburg was nothing more than a disrespectful photo-op. Three years ago Trump said Ginsburg was “dumb” and a “disgrace,” and tweeted “Her mind is shot — resign!”
The citizens of America have only one thing to say to you, Donnie: “Your mind is shot — resign!” And Kayleigh, you have shown that as Press Secretary you’re more interested in defending Trump than in doing your job of informing the public of the truth. Your only recourse now is to also resign and to crawl back into the swamp where you came from, just as Trump will do after Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20, 2021.

Trump Creates False Reality About Mail-In Ballots Ahead Of His Loss
The malignant narcissist in the Oval Office has been spewing forth fake news about the election that is still 39 days away. Trump’s demented sense of reality figures that if he throws enough shit against the wall, enough of it will stick to change his fake news into reality. WRONG!
Yesterday Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont tore into Trump, delivering an indictment of Trump’s recent comments that doubted the integrity of the November election and portraying Trump as an imminent threat to democracy.
The conclusion of Trump’s own White House commission on voter fraud was that it is exceedingly rare. Nonetheless, Trump is attempting to twist reality to make it sound as if mail-in ballots are fraught with rampant fraud, and also that such ballots are being illegally created and sent in by foreign countries that are out to get him. Trump lives in a state of constant paranoia and denial.
Trump opposed funding for the U.S. Postal Service in a coronavirus relief bill stemming from his desire to derail Democratic efforts to expand mail-in voting, and to his floating a delay in the election over mail-in voting.
To build a future case to challenge his eventual loss in the upcoming election, Trump himself encouraged voter fraud earlier this month when he urged North Carolina voters to attempt to vote twice as a test of mail-in voting systems.
Two days ago, Trump refused to commit to a peaceful transfer of power should he lose reelection, saying, “There won’t be a transfer, frankly. There will be a continuation.”
Bernie Sanders rightfully contends that Trump’s strategy is to delegitimize this election and to stay in office if he loses. Sanders said, “Finding himself behind in many polls, he is attempting massive voter suppression.” Sanders continued, “This is an election between Donald Trump and democracy, and democracy must win.”
Sanders outlined a number of action items that he argued might help alleviate chaos surrounding the election:
- Voters must hand Biden a decisive, landslide victory on Election Day, making it impossible for Trump to deny the results.
- State legislatures should allow the counting or processing of mail-in ballots prior to Election Day to close the window for chaos and conspiracy theories.
- The news media should begin preparing Americans for the virtual certainty that because of increased mail-in voting, the winner of the election will not be decided on Nov. 3, and social media platforms should take further action to stop the spread of disinformation on their platforms. The states are expected to take an inordinately long time to count votes this November because more than 50% of voters may end up casting mail ballots this year, up from 20% in 2016.
- Argue for hearings in Congress and statehouses alike to provide transparency on the election process — including how the days following the election will be handled — suggesting that he sees the possibility for violence in some places.
- Republicans in Congress should “not continue to tell the American people how much you love America if, at this critical moment, you are not prepared to stand up to defend American democracy and our way of life,” Sanders said. “Stop the hypocrisy.”
Kick The Diabolical Dictator’s Butt Out Of The People’s White House!
Trump, the worst president in all of American history, refused to commit to ensuring a peaceful transfer of power following the presidential elections when asked about the topic during a press conference yesterday. "We're going to have to see what happens," Trump said, reiterating unsubstantiated allegations of electoral fraud.
Trump has frequently claimed that the election is rigged against him, though he has presented no evidence whatsoever of fraud, and voting experts have repeatedly debunked Trump's claim that mail-in ballots are linked to fraud. Out of Trump’s twisted, demented, and altered sense of reality, he is pushing a baseless theory that foreign actors are plotting to send in fake ballots, though his own intelligence community has found no evidence of such a plot.
Trump’s remarks drew prompt pushback from several prominent Democratic politicians as well as Republican Sen. Mitt Romney, while all the other spineless Republican lawmakers were largely silent.
"This is how democracy dies. A president so desperate to cling to power that he won't commit to a peaceful transition of power. That he seeks to throw out millions of votes. And a Republican Party too craven to say a word," said Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff.
The US has had successful and peaceful transitions of power in every single election since its inception in 1776.
"The American people will decide this election. And the United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House," said Biden spokesperson Andrew Bates. Note from the citizens: And then hire an exterminator to rid the place of any remnants of the vermin that’s inhabited the place during the last four years.
VOTE FOR JOE BIDEN ON NOV. 3
Vote Out Mitch McConnell — the Turncoat!
Kentucky voters will have the opportunity this November to vote out Mitch McConnell, one of the Senate’s two-faced turncoats.
In February, 2016 McConnell said, “The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.”
McConnell is now saying that this only applies when the president is from a different party than the Senate majority leader. It says no such thing anywhere in either the Constitution or in any law. Wikipedia needs to add “Mitch McConnell” to the definition of “turncoat.”
The confirmation of a new justice to succeed Ruth Bader Ginsburg is solely about McConnell exercising raw political power for the purpose of acquiring and maintaining more power. It has nothing to do with what it should be about, namely following the will of the citizens of America who put him in office; and for that reason alone, McConnell should be ousted this November. McConnell no longer represents the people of America.
McConnell is playing in the politics of decline. His party will no longer hold either the House or Senate majority after the November election, and he knows it. The liberal movement is on the rise for the next presidential term, so it’s a furious power-grab for McConnell now. He is leading a party that depends on exploiting every avenue to preserve power despite not commanding national majorities. In the last seven presidential elections, Republicans have won the popular vote just once. This election will be no different. You lose, Mitch.

Pentagon Used $1 Billion Bailout Fund For Military Supplies Instead Of PPE
While hospitals continue to be short of personal protection equipment (PPE), a $1 billion fund from the Cares Act that Congress gave the Pentagon in March to build up the country’s supplies of medical equipment has instead been mostly funneled to defense contractors and used for making jet engine parts, body armor and dress uniforms. Where is Trump’s system of checks and balances?
Over 200,000 Americans have already died on Trump’s watch, and yet there remains a severe shortage of N95 masks at numerous U.S. hospitals. These are the types of problems that the money was originally intended to address.
Instead, here is how some of the money was awarded:
- $183 million to firms including Rolls-Royce and ArcelorMittal to maintain the shipbuilding industry
- $13.4 million to five firms for satellite, drone and space surveillance technology
- $15 million to LeoLabs, Inc. to ensure the continued viability of space surveillance capability through the operation and maintenance of a world-wide highly capable phased-array radar network
- $80 million to Spirit AeroSystems, a Kansas aircraft parts business suffering from the Boeing 737 Max grounding and the global slowdown in air travel
- $2 million to the American Woolen Company in Connecticut for Army dress uniform fabric
Trump’s Hypocrites Push To Fill Supreme Court Vacancy
TRUMP’S HENCHMEN ARE PROVING TO BE LIARS
Americans have not forgotten Mitch McConnell's nearly year-long retaliatory refusal to hold a vote over President Barack Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland to the High Court in February of 2016 when McConnell said that the American people should "have a voice in this momentous decision."
But McConnell is now showing his true turncoat colors. Now he is pushing for quick action to fill the Supreme Court vacancy "without delay."
Likewise, Lindsey Graham, another of Trump’s hypocrites, said in 2018, if there’s a Supreme Court opening in the “last year of President Trump’s term, and the primary process has started, we’ll wait ’til the next election” to confirm a new justice. Graham continued, “I want you to use my words against me” if I ever contradicted that vow. Great, Lindsey, you pathetic liar, now you get your wish! The people of South Carolina should rightfully vote Graham out of the Senate since he is up for reelection this November.
This would also be the first Supreme Court appointment by an IMPEACHED president.
The people want the new president to fill the Supreme Court vacancy and are currently in the midst of speaking loudly by voting early in several states and many more will be joining them in the next few weeks by casting their votes for Biden in advance of the November 3 election. Both McConnell’s and Graham’s clear contempt for the American people’s wishes will secure a Biden victory and cost Republicans the Senate.
VOTE FOR BIDEN NOW!
Trump is not “of the devil,” he “is the devil.”
Purely out of spite and retaliation against the Democrats, at another coronavirus-spreading rally in North Carolina last night, Trump expressed his intent to name a nominee to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court as early as next week.
Shortly before her death, Justice Ginsburg very specifically said her “most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”
Trump and his malevolent conspiring puppet, Mitch McConnell, are already facing pushback from within their own party. Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine said Saturday that the winner of this fall’s presidential election should choose the next nominee and that the Senate shouldn’t vote before then. “In fairness to the American people, who will either be re-electing the President or selecting a new one, the decision on a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court should be made by the President who is elected on November 3rd.”
Today Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski (R., Alaska) joined Senator Susan Collins and said she would not support filling the vacancy this year.
People all over the country are mobilizing against lawmakers who are trying to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg before the November presidential election.
McConnell can only afford to lose three Republicans, and he’s already lost two. How many more will do the right thing and vote against the evil plot of Trump and McConnell? Mitt Romney of Utah? Lamar Alexander of Tennessee? Cory Gardner of Colorado?
Democrats argued that Republicans are violating the standard, the precedent, that Mitch McConnell and his cronies set themselves in 2016 when they denied a hearing to President Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland, for nearly a year.
Senate Republicans up for re-election this fall in battleground states will have to decide whether to side with McConnell and Trump and potentially risk losing the support of swing voters, or buck GOP leadership and risk enraging the Republican base.
Remember, voters, that in four years, Trump has still not revealed the health care plan he touted during his pre-election campaign; and he still has no plan to fight the pandemic, the severity of which he’s known about since late January, and now where over 200,000 Americans have already died on his watch. Yet this evil and vindictive man suddenly feels the need to quickly stack the Supreme Court with another conservative justice.
VOTERS MUST OUST TRUMP ON NOVEMBER 3rd.
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Has Died!
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the Supreme Court’s second female justice and the champion of gender equality, died of complications from metastatic pancreatic cancer at her home in Washington. She was 87.
Her death just over six weeks before Election Day is likely to set off a heated battle over whether Trump should nominate, and the Republican-led Senate should confirm, her replacement, or if the seat should remain vacant until the outcome of his race against Democrat Joe Biden is known.
Just days before her death, as her strength waned, Ginsburg dictated this statement to her granddaughter Clara Spera: "My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed." Trump, however, will almost certainly try to push Ginsburg’s successor through the Republican-controlled Senate — and move the conservative court even more to the right, which is very unfortunate for the future of the United States.
Former President Barack Obama paid tribute to Ginsburg, calling on Republicans to delay filling the vacancy left by her death until after the 2020 presidential election. He said Republicans should "apply rules with consistency, and not based on what's convenient or advantageous in the moment," referring to the precedent set when the Senate would not hold a hearing for nearly a year on his nomination of Merrick Garland in 2016 following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. "Four and a half years ago, when Republicans refused to hold a hearing or an up-or-down vote on Merrick Garland, they invented the principle that the Senate shouldn't fill an open seat on the Supreme Court before a new president was sworn in," he said. "As votes are already being cast in this election, Republican Senators are now called to apply that standard," Obama added.
Ginsburg spent her final years on the bench as the unquestioned leader of the court’s liberal wing. She was a tireless and resolute champion of justice, and will definitely be missed.
“I wanted to be the first person to vote against Donald Trump.”
Jason Miller, a house painter in Minneapolis, became one of the first people in the country to cast his vote in person for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. “For four years I have waited to do this, so here I am.”
Early voting kicked off in four states on Friday, and long lines were reported in those states. By this weekend, as many as 20 states will have begun some form of general election voting by mailing out absentee ballots or allowing people to cast them in person, giving Americans an opportunity to make their selections for president and other offices long before Nov. 3.
A vote for Joe Biden is a vote for a better America!
Pence Staffer To Vote For BIDEN
Olivia Troye, Mike Pence’s former homeland security adviser and his lead coronavirus staff member on the White House coronavirus task force, stepped down in July and is condemning Trump and his administration for their response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
"Towards the middle of February, we knew it wasn't a matter of if COVID would become a big pandemic here in the United States, it was a matter of when," Troye said in the ad run by a group called Republican Voters against Trump. "But the President didn't want to hear that, because his biggest concern was that we were in an election year."
“I would not tell anyone I care about to take a vaccine that launches prior to the election,” Troye said in an interview with the Washington Post. “I would listen to the experts and the unity in pharma. And I would wait to make sure that this vaccine is safe and not a prop tied to an election.”
Troye claimed that during a task force meeting, Trump said, "Maybe this COVID thing is a good thing. I don't have to shake hands with these disgusting people.”
So Trump is referring to his own supporters, from whom he expects both their allegiance and their votes, as “disgusting people.” This is just further proof that you can dress up Trump in a suit and a long red tie, but underneath he still is what he is — a mentally ill malignant narcissist — it’s just putting lipstick on a pig.
Republican Olivia Troye is backing BIDEN for president and so should everyone else in America!
“Vote the assholes out.”
Patagonia, the environmentally friendly outdoor clothing company, has been putting hidden messages inside the tags of some of its outdoor clothing.
Patagonia endorsed two Democratic political candidates in the 2018 midterms "because of the urgent and unprecedented threats to our public lands and waters,” and said those candidates would “help protect natural resources.” It also sued the Trump administration in 2017, joining a coalition of Native American and grassroots groups challenging the legality of the president’s action to slash Utah’s Bears Ears National Monument by 85 percent and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, 100 miles to the west of Bears Ears, by half. The legal theory is simple: The Antiquities Act of 1906 grants the president the authority to create national monuments, but not to reduce or rescind them.
Given the impending election, the pointed statement of “Vote the assholes out” seems directed at ousting Trump and his administration, however, a spokesperson for Patagonia says the sentiment actually goes beyond just one politician. The idea for the tags comes directly from the brand’s founder, Yvon Chouinard, and it is meant to challenge the anti-environmental actions that are currently being taken in office.
Tessa Byars, a Patagonia spokesperson, said, “It refers to politicians from any party who deny or disregard the climate crisis and ignore science, not because they aren’t aware of it, but because their pockets are lined with money from oil and gas interests.”
Call Patagonia’s tags a viral gimmick, but it’s in line with the brand’s ethos and a good reminder of the larger problems we’re facing. With glaciers melting at rapid rates and forest fires ablaze in California, our earth is literally burning, and Patagonia is using its clothes to remind us of one way to tackle the problem: Oust those who are ignoring or indifferent to it all. And this applies especially to Trump, who just this week said of global warming, “It’ll start getting cooler. You just watch.”
Finally, a company that stands up for what it believes. BUY PATAGONIA PRODUCTS!
Ignorant Trump Demeans Esteemed Dr. Redfield
Question: How stupid would one have to be to vote for someone who would publicly demean his own top health official’s statements about something as serious as the pandemic?
Answer: You’d have to be one of Trump’s stupid supporters — one who would buy into an ignorant cult leader’s alternate reality instead of proven scientific health facts.
Yesterday Trump was once again on the attack, using his predictable “deny, denigrate and deflect” tactics, to demean CDC Director, Dr. Robert Redfield, after Redfield’s congressional testimony where he stated that masks may be a more effective protection against coronavirus than any potential vaccine that Trump can't stop hyping. It’s all Trump’s PROPAGANDA!
Trump is only deepening the damage of his already disastrous pandemic response and dwindling his chances for reelection.
First, there is no vaccine. Redfield laid out a timeline for when the general US public could possibly expect to start seeing results from widespread coronavirus vaccination: the second or third quarter of 2021. Second, Redfield’s testimony on the effectiveness of masks contradicted Trump’s uneducated and myopic viewpoints.
Trump, the liar, told reporters Redfield was "confused.” Hardly. Redfield said, ”A Covid-19 vaccine is the thing that will get Americans back to normal everyday life. The best defense we currently have against this virus are the important mitigation efforts of wearing a mask, washing your hands, social distancing and being careful about crowds.”
The only confusion is in the demented head of Trump whose motivation is in getting reelected at all costs regardless of who he throws under the bus.
Vote for Biden in order to regain sanity in the White House.
Same Old Lying Story Lines From The Fool
TRUMP’S BUCK PASSING AND AUDACIOUS LIES FAILED TO CONVINCE
Trump answered questions from uncommitted voters Tuesday night during a town hall moderated by ABC News' chief anchor, George Stephanopoulos, at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.
Trump disputed that he had downplayed the virus. But, following his denial, Trump continued to downplay the pandemic. "We're going to be okay and it is going away," even "without the vaccine," he told the audience. Trump touted herd immunity, but called it “herd mentality.” Health experts, however, have cautioned against this approach in the absence of a vaccine because it could cause hundreds of thousands more deaths. Medical experts say that there is no evidence that the virus will go away without a vaccine.
Trump continued to focus his message on law and order, even when asked about racial injustice, rather than on seeking to understand the actions that have led to the violence. He indicated the real problem is that police are no longer respected.
On multiple fronts, Trump tried to push any blame off himself and onto Democrats. “If you look at the really troubled cities in our country, they're Democrat-run,” Trump claimed.
On healthcare, Trump said, “You're going to have new health care, and the preexisting condition aspect of it will always be in my plan," repeating a pledge about a bogus health care plan that Trump has yet to disclose during his entire first term, even after consistent attempts to strike down the option of Obamacare. Stephanopoulous pushed Trump to answer for his attempts to repeal Obamacare — along with its coverage for people with preexisting conditions — without any public plan to replace it. Trump repeated that his plan would be better. "But you haven't come up with it," Stephanopoulos said.
The takeaway: Trump continued to parrot the same lies and the same casting of blame on others that he’s continuously done during his entire term. Ho-hum! Nothing’s changed. It’s time for a new president!

Other significant news: The editorial board of Scientific American magazine endorsed Joe Biden, the Democratic nominee, calling him the candidate “who is offering fact-based plans to protect our health, our economy and the environment.” The magazine has never endorsed a political candidate in its 175 year history.
Donnie, the Dimwit, Denies Scientific Fact
Trump baselessly asserted that climate change is not playing a role in the catastrophic wildfires overtaking forests and communities across the west. Instead, the idiot continued to stress the need for better “forest management” to clear dead trees that can serve as fuel for the fires. Right, Donnie, let’s rake leaves to solve the problem! Trump contradicted a knowledgeable official briefing him who pleaded for him to listen to the science.
"I don't think science knows, actually," Trump said. He told Wade Crowfoot, secretary of California's Natural Resources Agency: "It'll start getting cooler. You just watch." Crowfoot had warned Trump of the dangers of ignoring the scientific evidence and putting "our head in the sand and thinking that it's all about vegetation management."
Climate experts told CNN that due to human-caused climate change, temperature extremes are climbing higher and the vegetation is drier, which affects fire behavior.
Fire ecologists say no amount of “clearing” in the forests could have prevented this year’s disasters. Research shows that in many cases management practices such as salvage logging actually exacerbate fire susceptibility.
So, the idiot in the White House now ignores the reality of the pandemic, climate change and wildfires. And there are still people willing to vote for him? Trump supporters are clearly the real idiots!
Joe Biden called Trump a “climate arsonist” who had belittled the factors worsening the wildfires. Climate change “requires action, not denial,” he said. “It requires leadership, not scapegoating.”
Ballots have already gone out or are on their way to voters in some states, and the contrast between Trump and Biden in the midst of this climate crisis may be yet another reason so many voters are casting their ballots early for Biden.
Go rake leaves at Mar-a-Lago, Donnie.
Trump Holds Another Coronavirus Spreading Event
Trump, the nation’s most incompetent and defiant autocrat, held another coronavirus super-spreading event in Nevada last night, making a mockery of social distancing during a pandemic.
This was Trump’s second rally in Nevada during the past week where he selfishly risked the health of all attendees for his personal benefit. Thousands were packed together inside a manufacturing facility in defiance of the state's ban on local gatherings of 50 people or more, which has the potential to turn into a super spreader event that could seed Covid-19 outbreaks in the community. In Trump’s last indoor rally in Tulsa, the city saw a surge in cases and multiple campaign staffers along with Secret Service agents tested positive for the virus. But Trump doesn’t care. He’s as selfish and irresponsible as they come, and has no moral convictions.
Trump, who should be setting an example for the entire nation, is instead responsible for the most dangerous breaches of his own government's coronavirus recommendations.
Trump, who was impeached for trying to use government power to coerce Ukraine to interfere in a US election, is sending a warning of how he would behave in a second term freed from any future accountability — like a dictator — and America’s democratic form of government has no place for a dictator.
It’s time to oust Trump, the psychopathic autocrat.
Trump’s Biggest Obstacle
Trump’s biggest obstacle is none other than Trump himself.
This week Trump continued his fruitless efforts to discredit voting by mail, which is his latest diversionary tactic to attempt to hide his mismanagement of the pandemic, while at the same time recommending that his supporters illegally vote twice. He also feverishly continued to push for an early announcement of an effective coronavirus vaccine, while health experts warn that a vaccine probably won’t be ready until next year at the very earliest, by which time Trump will have thankfully been voted out and Joe Biden can take credit for the vaccine dispensed while on his watch. Trump also held another of his no mask, no social distancing “corona-palooza” rallies in Michigan where he continued to show blatant disregard for health experts’ warnings about the spread of the pandemic. Trump then disparaged dead American war heroes, calling them “losers” and “suckers.” Last night, in Nevada, Trump actually said he relishes his role as a “divider” as he vows to be “vicious.” That is not what Americans want or need in any president. And all of that was just this week!
Trump’s advantages have eroded and his timeline is shrinking. He has few cards to play. He falls behind Joe Biden in every poll, and the four swing states of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nevada and New Hampshire are already tipping in Biden’s favor, with Trump’s approval rating falling below 43% in each of those critically important states.
There are only seven weeks left before Joe Biden will thankfully be elected as the next President of the United States. So start packing, Donnie. You’re almost out of here. Your time at practicing to be a president instead of being a real one is almost over. You’re a mentally ill malignant narcissist. You can return to being the dictator and tyrant of the Trump organization for those stupid enough to work for you. Biden can have the White House exterminated from any remnants of your presence, and the business of rebuilding the America that you tore down can finally get under way.
Trump Is A Malignant Narcissist
Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental condition in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for excessive attention and admiration, troubled relationships, and a lack of empathy for others.
FROM THE DIAGNOSTIC AND STATISTICAL MANUAL OF MENTAL DISORDERS (DSM-5 301.81)
Narcissistic Personality Disorder
In order for a person to be diagnosed with narcissistic personality disorder they must meet five or more of the following symptoms:
- Have an exaggerated sense of self-importance ✅ Trump
- Have a sense of entitlement and require constant, excessive admiration ✅ Trump
- Expect to be recognized as superior even without achievements that warrant it ✅ Trump
- Exaggerate achievements and talents ✅ Trump
- Be preoccupied with fantasies about success, power, brilliance, beauty or the perfect mate ✅ Trump
- Believe they are superior and can only associate with equally special people ✅ Trump
- Monopolize conversations and belittle or look down on people they perceive as inferior ✅ Trump
- Expect special favors and unquestioning compliance with their expectations ✅ Trump
- Take advantage of others to get what they want ✅ Trump
- Have an inability or unwillingness to recognize the needs and feelings of others ✅ Trump
- Be envious of others and believe others envy them ✅ Trump
- Behave in an arrogant or haughty manner, coming across as conceited, boastful and pretentious ✅ Trump
- Insist on having the best of everything — for instance, the best car or office ✅ Trump
The primary difference between narcissism and malignant narcissism is that malignant narcissism includes the simultaneous presence of features of other personality disorders, and thus consists of a broader range of symptoms (i.e. co-morbidity) than pathological narcissism alone, including:
- antisocial personality disorder (APD) — consistent disregard for other people’s feelings; continued illegal or lawbreaking behavior; a pattern of deceit, including exploitation and manipulation of other people; little or no remorse for harmful or illegal actions ✅ Trump
- aggression — an intent to harm or destroy ✅ Trump
- sadism — taking pleasure in humiliating someone or causing them pain, especially in public situations; behaving in controlling or domineering ways ✅ Trump
- paranoia — having an irrational suspicion or mistrust of others; feeling like someone is out to get them ✅ Trump
This is definitely NOT the kind of person Americans need or want as its president. It is time to oust Trump from the Oval Office. A vote for Joe Biden is a vote for a better America.
The Lying Bastard’s Timeline
With respect to the coronavirus, Trump squandered February when instead he should have spent his time helping America. Trump is worthless.
worthless [wurth-lis], adjective.
Without worth; of no use, importance, or value; good-for-nothing; insignificant; despicable; contemptible; counterproductive.
- Jan. 6: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issues a travel notice for Wuhan, China. Trump did nothing ❌
- Jan. 15: The first person confirmed with the coronavirus infection returned to the United States from Wuhan, China. Trump did nothing ❌
- Jan. 17: The CDC implements screenings at three airports. Trump did nothing ❌
- Jan. 31: Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said during a briefing at the White House that the coronavirus presented a public health emergency. Trump didn’t even attend the briefing. Half an hour after it ended, he boarded Marine One on his way to Mar-a-Lago, his private resort in Palm Beach, Fla. Trump did nothing ❌
- Feb. 2: The CDC “expanded enhanced entry screening to eight major airports across the nation.” Trump, meanwhile, was playing golf at his private club in Florida. After his round, he sat for an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, who asked how concerned Trump was about the virus. Trump said, “Well, we pretty much shut it down coming in from China.” Trump did nothing ❌
- Feb. 4: Trump mentioned the coronavirus in his State of the Union speech, saying, “My administration will take all necessary steps to safeguard our citizens from this threat.” Trump did nothing ❌
- Feb. 5: Trump had a scheduled meeting with his coronavirus task force in the Oval Office. It was the only such meeting on his public schedule in the month of February. Trump did nothing ❌
- Feb. 7 (more than two weeks after the United States had confirmed its first infection), Trump said the virus was “deadly stuff.” Trump understood the risk. Even as he tried to maintain a business-as-usual presidency, he knew that the virus was transmissible by air and often deadly. Trump did nothing ❌
- Feb. 10: Trump hosted a number of governors at the White House where he said, “Now, the virus that we’re talking about having to do — you know, a lot of people think that goes away in April with the heat — as the heat comes in. Typically, that will go away in April. We’re in great shape, though. We have 12 cases — 11 cases, and many of them are in good shape now.” Trump did nothing ❌
- Feb. 10 (evening): Trump held an indoor rally in New Hampshire where he said, “Looks like by April, you know, in theory, when it gets a little warmer, it miraculously goes away.” Trump did nothing ❌
- Feb. 14: Trump touted his successes, including on the virus, at an event with the Border Patrol Council, saying, “Sixty-one percent of the voters approve of Trump’s handling of the coronavirus,” pointing to a poll from the Morning Consult. (His approval is now at 39 percent.) Trump did nothing ❌
- Feb. 23: Trump said that the virus was “very much under control.” Trump did nothing ❌
- Feb. 24: Trump again said the virus was “very much under control in the USA.” Trump did nothing ❌
- Feb. 25: Trump, speaking to reporters in New Delhi, India, claimed that the virus was “very well under control in our country.” Trump did nothing ❌
- Feb. 25: Nancy Messonnier of the CDC gave public remarks suggesting that the spread of the virus would mean broad changes to our way of life, including closing schools and businesses — a preview of the social distancing we’ve since seen. Trump was reportedly furious. Trump did nothing ❌
- Feb. 26: Trump said in his first news conference on the coronavirus that there were only 15 cases in the United States, a number that “within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero.” Trump did nothing ❌
- Feb. 28: At a campaign rally, Trump insisted that the coronavirus was the new “hoax” being perpetrated on his presidency by the Democrats. Trump did nothing ❌
Trump struggled to explain what his administration did during the entire month of February as the virus quietly spread in the United States — and as Trump publicly suggested that there was nothing to worry about. The first coronavirus-related death was recorded in the United States in February and, perhaps more importantly, officials confirmed the virus was no longer being contained among groups that had traveled overseas. CBS’s Paula Reid asked Trump, “What did your administration do in February with the time that your travel ban bought you?” “A lot,” Trump responded. “What?” Reid pressed. “Look. Look. You know you’re a fake,” Trump replied. “You know that? Your whole network, the way you cover it is fake.” Trump did nothing except what he always does, namely attack the questioner to take the focus off of his obvious incompetence and deflect the blame elsewhere. Trump spent much of the entire month of February denying that the emergence of the virus in the United States was problematic. “In late January and early February,” The Washington Post reported, “leaders at [Health and Human Services] sent two letters to the White House Office of Management and Budget asking to use its transfer authority to shift $136 million of department funds into pools that could be tapped for combating the coronavirus. … White House budget hawks argued that appropriating too much money at once when there were only a few U.S. cases would be viewed as alarmist.”
- March 11: Trump announces travel restrictions from Europe during a prime-time address to the nation.
- March 13: Trump declares a national emergency.
- March 18: The Department of Defense sends 1 million masks to hospitals.
As of this writing, 6.5 million coronavirus cases have been confirmed in the United States and over 195,000 people have died of Covid-19, the disease caused by the virus. Trump’s assertion that “Whatever the circumstance is, we’re prepared” could not be further from the truth. Eight months have gone by and Trump still has no plan. Trump is nothing but a shitstorm, a cluster f**k, of epic proportions.
There is a new synonym for the word “incompetence,” and it’s “Trump.”
It is more important than ever before that you cast your vote for Joe Biden in the upcoming election in order to get rid of Trump, the worst president in all of American history!
GREAT NEWS: This morning Politico reported that Democrats are amassing an enormous lead in early voting, spread across an array of battleground states, according to absentee ballot request data compiled by state election authorities and analyzed by Democratic and Republican data experts. In North Carolina and Pennsylvania, Democrats have a roughly three-to-one advantage over Republicans in absentee ballot requests. In Florida — a must-win for President Donald Trump — the Democratic lead stands at more than 700,000 ballot requests, while the party also leads in New Hampshire, Ohio and Iowa. This is great news for the future of America!

Trump held another of his coronavirus-spreading rallies last night, this one in Freeland, Michigan, where there was no social distancing and where the majority of obviously stupid attendees were not wearing masks. Kathy Gray, a New York Times reporter, was ejected from the rally when she posted “Maybe 10% have masks” on Twitter. A spokesperson for the Trump campaign told Business Insider that Gray was offered the opportunity to stay if she refrained from additional reporting. Well, Donnie, you lose. The pen is still mightier than the sword. Instead of silencing the press by ousting one reporter at your rally of just a few hundred attendees, we’ll post Kathy Gray’s comments here for an audience of the entire world to read: “No mask? No problem. Maybe 10% have masks.” This event was just one more in a long list of Trump’s events that proves that stupidity is still not illegal in America. It also proves that Trump will use the same tactics used by his mentor, Adolf Hitler, to suppress the free press.
Incidentally, during the Impeached Twitter Toddler’s speech, he didn’t just downplay the coronavirus, Trump resorted to absurd historical allusions about great World War II leaders and to twisting history in order to try to disguise his culpability in 190,000 American deaths.
“Trump Is The Wrong Man For The Job”
THE FAMOUS WATERGATE JOURNALIST REVEALS THE TRUTH ABOUT TRUMP
Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward's new book, Rage, says Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told some other members of the Trump administration that President Donald Trump's "attention span is like a minus number. His sole purpose is to get reelected." The infectious disease expert told others that Trump "is on a separate channel" and called his leadership "rudderless."
Woodward, the famous Watergate journalist, had access to Trump across 18 one-on-one interviews. This isn’t hearsay or fake news — it’s from on-the-record interview transcripts and recordings. In his final interview with Trump on July 21st, the president told him, "The virus has nothing to do with me. It's not my fault."
The interviews also revealed that Trump was not candid with the public about the dangers of Covid-19, with Trump telling Woodward he was “playing it down” even though it was possibly five times “more deadly” than the flu. “I still like playing it down, because I don't want to create a panic,” Trump said in one audio clip released just yesterday. Trump was “playing it down” while over 195,000 Americans have already died of the coronavirus and over 6.5 million have been infected! Trump continues to insist that he did nothing wrong.
“The president’s own words spell out the devastating truth: Trump was fully aware of the catastrophic nature of the coronavirus but hid the facts and refused to take the threat seriously, leaving our entire country exposed and unprepared,” Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said.
The new book details Trump's mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic and assesses his presidency. Predictably, yesterday Trump called the book “another political hit job” — despite the recordings of the president’s own words. Spineless Republican legislators are noticeably silent. Rage is set to be released on Amazon on September 15th.
Woodward bluntly concludes his book with the assessment that “Trump is the wrong man for the job.” He is an imbecile and a loser, and hopefully this insightful book from a White House insider will even more convincingly prove to the public, some of whom are now starting to receive mail-in ballots, that Trump must be removed from office.
Biden Will Win The Presidency!
The latest from Politico’s 2020 Election Forecast on 9/9/20: In the race for the White House, Trump is now an underdog to win a second term. There is still a plausible path for him to win an Electoral College majority — but it has grown much less likely.
The Politico ratings will be updated all the way through Election Day.
Who controls Washington next year comes down to just a handful of states this year as evidenced by where the parties are spending their money and the candidates are spending their time. In the presidential race, the following five battleground states are leaning toward Biden: Michigan, Nevada, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and New Hampshire. These four states are leaning toward Trump: Texas, Iowa, Ohio and Georgia. Four toss-up states include Arizona, Wisconsin, North Carolina and Florida.
The demise of Trump is very good news for America and for our system of democracy.
Impeached Trump, The Serial Liar, Creates More Fake News
Trump and his Republican cronies are spreading “disinformation” (i.e. fake news) and misleading videos in the last weeks before the election.
The Washington Post reported that:
- White House social media director Dan Scavino shared a manipulated video that falsely showed Joe Biden seeming to fall asleep during a television interview, complete with a fake TV headline.
- Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, the second-ranking House Republican, released a video splicing together quotes from activist Ady Barkan — who has Lou Gehrig’s disease and uses computer voice assistance — to falsely make it sound as if he had persuaded Biden to defund police departments.
- Trump repeated a false claim that just 6 percent of the nation’s death toll in the pandemic was actually caused by the novel coronavirus itself — part of his ongoing effort to portray the virus as less deadly or pervasive than it actually is.
- Trump’s campaign shared a short video on Aug. 31 of Biden saying, “You won’t be safe in Joe Biden’s America.” But the video failed to include the full context of Biden’s remarks, which he used to argue the opposite — that Americans are experiencing violence and unrest in Trump’s America.
- During a Tuesday visit to Kenosha, Wis., which has been the site of unrest after the police shooting of a Black man, Trump held a photo op that was muddier than he made it appear. He met with the former owner of Rode’s Camera Shop, which was destroyed in the riots and fires there, while claiming the man was the current owner of the shop. In fact, he is the owner of the building and not the shop. The actual owner of the store refused to meet with Trump, characterizing Trump’s visit as a “divisive circus.”
- This past Thursday, Trump claimed he had never called the late senator John McCain a “loser” — despite calling him that publicly in 2015, shortly after announcing his candidacy for president.
It is worth noting that these war heroes shed their blood for America, while Trump has no previous military or government experience whatsoever, and actually dodged the draft multiple times, citing “bone spurs” — but he has no problem walking around the golf course at the taxpayers’ expense.
Biden spokesman TJ Ducklo said in a statement that Trump’s misinformation is intended to obscure his poor leadership. “The coordinated effort by Donald Trump’s campaign to promote conspiracy theories, manipulate media to mislead Americans and lie about Joe Biden is the clearest signal yet they know they’re losing,” Ducklo said.
Trump has built a political career around falsehoods, issuing more than 20,000 false or misleading statements during the first three-plus years of his presidency.
There are no words that can come out of Trump’s mouth that are in any way believable. He has repeatedly proven that he is nothing but a serial liar.
A vote for Joe Biden is a vote for a better America.
* * * * *
Today the death toll of people who have died of the coronavirus in the US surpassed 190,000, and dipshit Trump still has no pandemic plan.
Then Resign, Donnie!
If you don’t like the job, Donnie, then resign — now!
CNN reported that in one of his tweets this past Wednesday, Trump said, “You are so lucky to have me as your President.” It's inconceivable that any past president would say that. Why? Because past presidents have understood that serving as president is both an honor and a public trust. The Twitter Toddler views things very differently. In his mind, he is doing the country a favor in serving as president. Trump sees the presidency as an inconvenience — one he is only willing to take on because he believes only he can fix what ails the country.
"This thing is costing me a fortune, being president," Trump said in a speech in California in 2019. "The best day in my life in terms of business and life and everything was the day before I announced I was running for president," Trump said.
So, Donnie, it’s obvious you don’t like the job, and you’re clearly incompetent at it. You don’t represent America or the majority of Americans. You know it. We know it. So why don’t you just do everyone a favor and resign, and go back to being a bigoted racist in your own company where you can happily be the “dictatorial king” you really want to be?

CNN poll: Joe Biden leads Trump by a 51% to 43% margin. That 8-point margin matches a Grinnell College/Selzer & Co. poll es a published this week as well and is in-line with the national polling average.
Trump’s Depraved And Demonic Plan
BEING BOTH THE ARSON AND THE FIREFIGHTER
IMPEACHED TRUMP wants more chaos and mayhem in the streets, and his ex-counselor, Kellyanne Conway, confirmed it. Lara Trump, daughter-in-law and campaign adviser, told Fox News that the violence is bringing voters to Trump. Americans, on the other hand, are horrified and tired of the violence. That dichotomy is the secret to Trump’s depraved and demonic plan. Compare it to the firefighter who is also the arson — one who receives attention and credit for responding to the fires that he personally sets.
“The more chaos and anarchy and vandalism and violence reigns, the better it is for the very clear choice on who’s best on public safety and law and order,” Kellyanne Conway said on Fox & Friends.
Trump’s end-game plan is crystal clear:
He creates the environment that causes violence, chaos, looting and shooting, and then he sends in the Feds and the National Guard to suppress the pandemonium and anarchy that he created, taking full credit for being the hero and savior, i.e. “the law and order president,” and projecting the blame on the Democrats.
Trump’s depraved plan is crystal clear, but his supporters are either too naive or too stupid (or both) to even see it.
It’s time to put an end to the Trump administration. A vote for Biden is a vote for a better America.
“Trump has been a toxic presence in our nation for four years.
Poisoning how we talk to one another.
Poisoning how we treat one another.
Poisoning the values this nation has always held dear.
Poisoning to our democracy." (Joe Biden)
The Real Loser Calls Our Military ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers’
The editor in chief of The Atlantic magazine, in a bombshell article, claimed that Trump, the impeached loser, has privately disparaged veterans for their military service during his time in office even as his campaign has sought to showcase his support for those in uniform.
The article said Trump referred to American Marines who died in World War I as "losers" and "suckers" and recounted several other anecdotes of Trump making cruel remarks about people who serve in the military.
Trump long sparred with Republican Sen. John McCain, calling him a "loser" on Twitter in 2015 and attacking him even after his death.
Reaction to The Atlantic article on social media was swift and harsh. Hours after it published, Democratic-leaning political action committee VoteVets.org released an attack ad featuring the response of gold star families.
Asked whether he would apologize, Trump said no.
Trump Promotes Illegal Activity
Trump encouraged people in North Carolina to commit voter fraud by voting twice in the November election, once by mail and once in person, escalating his attempts to cast confusion and doubt on the validity of the results.
It is illegal to vote more than once in an election — it’s a felony — but Trump thinks he’s above the law. And where are the spineless Republican House and Senate members who are hiding in their corners instead of vocally standing up against Trump’s illegal encouragements? They are as worthless as Trump!
Trump has no reservations about using the authority of the presidency to mess with democracy. After all, Trump was impeached for a brazen attempt to coerce a foreign power — Ukraine — into intervening in the election to hurt Biden's campaign. Trump will stop at nothing, legal or not, to carry on with his devious plans.
Incidentally, both Trump and Melania have requested absentee ballots to vote by mail in the Florida primary this year.
Four new national polls, all taken after both Democratic and Republican national conventions, show that Biden holds a 7- to 10-point lead over Trump.
Joe Biden Met With Jacob Blake’s Family In Kenosha Today
Trump did not meet with Blake’s family during his Tuesday visit. Trump declined to speak with Blake’s mother because she wanted lawyers to monitor the conversation, and the Twitter Toddler wouldn’t agree. No such issue for an empathetic peacemaker like Biden. Joe and Jill Biden met with Blake's father Jacob Blake Sr., sister Letetra Widman, brother Myron Jackson, sister Zietha Blake and mother Julia Jackson, who attended by phone.
Republican Senator from Wisconsin, Ron Johnson, welcomed Biden to the state.
In addition to visiting with the Blake family, Biden and his wife will also hold a community meeting “to bring together Americans to heal and address the challenges we face,” his campaign said. “There’s been overwhelming requests that I do come,” Biden told reporters Wednesday.
Biden gets things done, while Trump is a loser.
“Trump had been ‘dismissed as a clown’ by New York and was now trying to act like a king.
The best thing Trump did for New York City was leave.” (Governor Andrew Cuomo)
The best thing Trump could do for America is resign. (The remaining citizens of America)
Trump Blames and Blames and Blames…..
So What Else Is New?
The “I take no responsibility for anything” wanna-be president went on an uninvited trip to Kenosha to blame anyone and anything other than himself again! This time it was “far-left politicians” for violence in the wake of police shooting Jacob Blake, an unarmed black man, in the back seven times. Trump’s trip was staged to highlight his hard-edge law-and-order message and to press what he and his campaign advisers view as a political advantage against Joe Biden. Trump is nothing but a bottom feeder who is trolling for votes in a key battleground state.
Trump, the cowardice weasel, never even mentioned the name of Jacob Blake during his entire visit. Justin Blake, Jacob Blake’s uncle, said, “All I ask is that he keep his disrespect, his foul language far away from our family. We need a president that’s going to unite and take us in a different direction.”
Trump then tried to turn the blame on Biden, saying he wasn’t doing enough to condemn antifa, and tried to tie Biden to local officials in Democratic states and cities that have experienced protests and violence. Biden said, “Everyone talks about this as if I’m already president. The fact is, this is Donald Trump’s America. Donald Trump has done nothing more than pour gasoline on the fire. I have condemned the violence from the very beginning.”
Trump then attempted to take credit for bringing calm to Kenosha by sending in the National Guard. However, it was Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers, not Trump, who activated the state’s National Guard and asked for help from three other states, Arizona, Michigan and Alabama. Nice try, Donnie. Trump is always willing to steal the credit, but never willing to take the blame.
Don’t forget, Americans, that all of this violence is happening on Trump’s watch, and he’s ultimately responsible for it all. Trump won’t accept either the responsibility or the blame for anything. Trump is worthless.
A vote for Biden is a vote to rebuild America!
TRUMP IS UNDENIABLY INSANE!
Trump, the mentally ill narcissist who occupies the Oval Office, defended the actions of Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old pro-Trump vigilante who shot and killed two protesters in Kenosha, WI with an AR-15 assault rifle. Trump described the murderer as acting in self-defense.
Self-Defense? Shooting unarmed protesters, one in the head and another in the back and the groin, is not self-defense — it’s murder. Trump should be committed in order to get the treatment he needs for his mental instability and disorders. He is a clear and present danger to all of America.
Trump has faced numerous calls to condemn Rittenhouse, who attended a Trump rally and had posted support on social media for Trump and Blue Lives Matter. Instead, Trump has been throwing accelerant on the fire of the nation’s social unrest rather than trying to put it out, seeking confrontation rather than calm.
Trump also compared the actions of a white Kenosha police officer who fired seven shots at a black man, hitting him four times in the back, to a golfer choking on a putt. Trump is a lunatic.
Pressed about reports that his supporters were firing paintballs at demonstrators, Trump was evasive, saying “Paint is a defensive mechanism. Paint is not bullets." Nice try, Donnie, but shooting paintballs at protesters is not a defensive mechanism. Paintballs get shot from guns — ready, aim, shoot — 100% offensive.
Joe Biden blasted Trump for declining to condemn Rittenhouse, saying, "He is too weak, too scared of the hatred he has stirred to put an end to it.” Biden rightfully argues that if Trump is unable to condemn violence regardless of political affiliation, then "he is unfit to be president and his preference for more violence — not less — is clear."
Trump is mentally ill and must be removed from office.
Trump Set To Incite More Violence
For his “America-on-fire” campaign strategy to work, Trump wants violence to boil up in cities right up until Election Day, or at least for enough voters to believe the nation is spiraling into an abyss of chaos and savagery; and it certainly is spiraling downward, but it’s directly BECAUSE of Trump. Trump is the cause of the chaos, not the solution.
So, Trump is set to incite more violence today by visiting Kenosha, WI, the site of the police shooting of Jacob Blake last week. Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers sent a letter to Trump urging him to reconsider his visit. Evers wrote, "I am concerned your presence will only hinder our healing. I am concerned your presence will only delay our work to overcome division and move forward together."
Evers’ message to Trump builds on comments from Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes who said earlier Sunday that Trump's presence would not be helpful in Kenosha. Barnes said, “You look at the incendiary remarks that the President has made, they centered an entire convention around creating more animosity and creating more division around what is going on in Kenosha. So, I don't know how given any of the previous statements that the President made that he intends to come here to be helpful. And we absolutely don't need that right now.”
Kenosha Mayor John Antaramian (D) offered a similar message, saying that it was not appropriate for Trump to visit "at this point in time."
The White House response was, “President Trump looks forward to visiting on Tuesday and helping this great city heal and rebuild."
While in Kenosha, Trump, the coward, did not meet with the family of Jacob Blake. Of course not — Trump’s a weasel.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson said, “Trump is coming to town to use us in a prop in his commercial to scare White people to get votes. He wants to see us and the red caps on two opposite sides. Let Trump swing in the wind. Tomorrow is a big day. We'll have a new president in 60 days, and we intend to put Wisconsin in the victory column."
This Saturday evening a caravan of Trump supporters sprayed pepper spray and fired paintballs at protesters in Portland who were denouncing police brutality and racial injustice. Trump’s incendiary and irresponsible response on Sunday morning, referring to his supporters, was "GREAT PATRIOTS!" Great patriots don’t spray legally protesting citizens with pepper spray and paintballs. Trump, however, has already set a precedent in using tear gas and rubber bullets on peacefully protesting citizens in Lafayette Park. He’s nothing more than a thug and an anarchist.
Biden’s response was, “We must not become a country at war with ourselves. Donald Trump has been President for almost four years. The temperature in the country is higher, tensions run stronger, divisions run deeper. And all of us are less safe because Donald Trump can't do the job of the American president.”
Trump’s visit to Kenosha is not about healing and rebuilding. It’s nothing but a campaign ploy. It’s only about Trump — period. Wisconsin is a key battleground state in this year's presidential election, and Trump sees his visit as a way to increase his standing in the polls.
Trump Only Stokes Violence!
Make America Great Again by
OUSTING TRUMP in the November election!
