UH-OH: Trump Mauls His Slobbering Lapdog Lindsey Graham in a Barking ‘Big Lie’ Blowup

The stench of desperation is wafting through Mar-a-Lago as Donald Trump slides deeper into the sewer of his own lies and psychoses. Even as the news breaks that he knew early on that there were no significant irregularities in the 2020 presidential election, he is continuing to disgorge increasingly bizarre and repeatedly debunked claims of fraud.

Donald Trump, Lindsey Graham

On Thursday morning Trump released another statement via his spokes-shill, Liz Harrington (whose proxy Trump tweeting is violating Twitter’s rules against circumventing a ban). Like most of his Twitter tantrums (twantrums?), this one was drenched with malice toward whoever he presently deemed worthy of his persecution and punishment. But this time the punishee was among his most loyal and shameless sycophants, Lindsey Graham.

Trump got wind of some of the excerpts from the new book, Peril, by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa. He surely didn’t read it, but the press has been quoting some of the more scandalous passages. One of them involved an account of how Republican senators Lindsey Graham and Mike Lee reacted to to Trump’s obsession with having lost the election to Joe Biden. As reported by the Washington Post…

“The book, ‘Peril,’ describes parallel efforts by the South Carolina Republican [Graham] and his conservative colleague from Utah, Sen. Mike Lee, to personally investigate the president’s claims of voter fraud as the lawmakers prepared to certify Joe Biden’s victory on Jan. 6.

Graham and Lee, both of whom ultimately voted to certify the results, took the claims of election fraud seriously enough to get briefed on the details, involve their senior staff and call state officials throughout the country. But privately, Graham gave the arguments a withering assessment, according to the book, saying they were suitable for ‘third grade.'”

And that was all it took to trigger Trump’s tempestuous wrath. This isn’t even an issue with Graham speaking out of turn on Fox News. It’s an account from a book that Trump hasn’t read, but would ordinarily dismiss as “fake” news. The tediously long tirade he released rebutting this was rife with seething animosity toward Graham, despite the Senator’s wretched record of Trump-fluffing fealty to the Former Guy:

“I spent virtually no time with Senators Mike Lee of Utah, or Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, talking about the 2020 Presidential Election Scam or, as it is viewed by many, the ‘Crime of the Century.’ Lindsey and Mike should be ashamed of themselves for not putting up the fight necessary to win. […]

“Mike Lee, Lindsey Graham, and all of the other Republicans who were unwilling to fight for the Presidency … are letting the Democrats get away with the greatest Election Hoax in history—a total con job! […] They should be ashamed of themselves.”

Most of the rest of Trump’s harangue was dedicated to his “Big Lie” that the election was “rigged” and “stolen” from him. He insists that the evidence of fraud is “staggering<" (a word that he also used in another tweet Monday) despite the inability of him or his legal flunkies (whose licenses are being suspended) being able to provide any of it in more than 60 court cases that they lost. Nevertheless, Trump whines…

“Look at the facts that are coming out in AZ, GA, MI, PA, WI, and other States. If this were Schumer and the Democrats, with the evidence we have of Election Fraud (especially newly revealed evidence), they would have never voted to approve Biden as President. […]

“We are losing our Country! The Democrats are vicious and fight like hell, and the Republicans do nothing about it. RINOs fight harder against Republicans than they do against Democrats. […] The evidence on determinative and wide-ranging Election Fraud is staggering. Your Republican Presidential candidate won in a landslide, but has so little backing from Republican ‘leadership.'”

Trump also complained about the Republicans being politically negligent, asking “Why don’t they have hearings [where] we would all hear the irrefutable facts!” Who wants to tell him that in Congress the minority party doesn’t control the hearings schedule? However, nothing is stopping him from holding a press conference or a MyPillow-style symposium to make the “irrefutable facts” public. He could even produce his “staggering” evidence at one of his cult rallies. So is Trump just another RINO failing to expose the Democrats who “are destroying our Country”?

Trump’s assault on Graham marks another milestone in his mental meltdown. After all, Graham is the guy who insisted that “the Republican Party can’t grow” without Trump. He also said that he wants to “harness the magic” of Trump’s “movement,” while ignoring his “dark side.” And he has pledged to go to war for the principles Chick fil-A stands for.” But even all of that isn’t worshipful enough for Trump. And his dimwitted devotees still haven’t figured that out.

Trump’s Lawsuit Against His Niece Mary and the NY Times is a Confession that She’s Telling the Truth

Among the psychological disorders that Donald Trump suffers from – in addition to malignant narcissism, antisocial personality disorder, and pathological lying – is one that he has displayed for decades: Hyperlitigious Behavior. Trump is notorious for suing his innumerable perceived enemies on blatantly false grounds. Most of the time he either drops the case or goes down in a humiliating loss.

Donald Trump

Trump’s recent courtroom escapades include his ludicrous suit against Twitter, Facebook, and Google. And then there’s his threat to sue (and impeach) House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. there is also his pretend action against CNN.

On Monday Trump announced his latest legal misadventure wherein he is suing his niece, Mary Trump, and the New York Times for, as stated in the filing, “tortiously breaching and/or interfering with his contractual rights and otherwise maliciously conspiring against him.” Because paranoid delusions are another of his known psychoses. According to Chris Jansing of NBC News (video below)

[Trump is] suing the New York Times and his niece, Mary Trump, over a story about his tax returns. The suit accuses them of engaging in quote ‘an insidious plot to obtain confidential and highly sensitive records which they exploited for their own benefit,’ and puts damages at no less than a $100,000,000. Mary Trump issued a statement, among other things, calling her uncle a quote ‘loser’ [actually “a f**king loser”]. The New York Times [whose story won a Pulitzer Prize] called the suit an attempt to silence news organizations.”

There are multiple obvious absurdities presented by this lawsuit. Beginning with the fact that it is alleging that Mary Trump “smuggled” documents from her own attorney to give to the Times. Of course, all of those documents would actually belong to her as part of her prior litigation. So how could they be characterized as stolen?

Uncle Trump’s suit also claims that Mary Trump had broken a non-disclosure agreement that had already been ruled too vague to enforce. Consequently, there is no merit whatsoever to Trump’s pitiful, poorly drafted, frivolous, nuisance suit. NBC’s Tom winter went on to report that…

“As far as this lawsuit, I think an interesting thing here is that it essentially proves the story. Because if the documents were, in fact, fake, there would be no reason here to sue. The president called this totally fake news when the Times started publishing documents about his tax payments and about his tax returns. So this essentially substantiates their reporting because, otherwise, why would you sue and why would you claim damages?”

Exactly! There can be no claim of damages for the release of truthful materials that were already disclosed in a prior proceeding. But Trump’s lawyers are, as usual, too incompetent to grasp the most basic legal concepts. That’s why some them (i.e. Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell) are facing severe disciplinary actions including suspension of their licenses to practice law.

In all likelihood, Trump’s lawsuit will never see a courtroom. If it isn’t thrown out for lacking merit, Trump himself will drop it. After all, he is only exposing himself to much greater legal liability by pursuing this nonsense.

What’s more, the discovery process would force him to turn over even more incriminating evidence. But in the meantime he is using this to deflect from other stories that he doesn’t want people to hear about. Such as the news that he knew that his lies about election fraud were unfounded even as he was disseminating them. That’s how con artists like Trump play the game.

Fox News Slams Biden’s Stamina Because He Rides Bikes – Unlike Couch Potato Trump

President Joe Biden addressed the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday with a speech that covered an array of topics that are critical to the welfare of the American people and the world (video below). It included passages about the COVID pandemic, the climate crisis, international conflict and diplomacy, global economics and trade, and more. And unlike the address by Donald Trump, no one laughed at him.

Fox News, Joe Biden, Jill Biden, Friends

So it was on this morning that Fox News chose to do a totally contrived story about Biden’s alleged lack of stamina. The sedentary lumps of gall on Fox and Friends considered this bit of fakery and fluff important enough to feature while other news networks were covering the President at the U.N.

Co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy took an especially keen interest in Biden’s health. She delivered the following harangue that was entirely devoid of factual basis. It consisted mainly of infantile taunts and tedious talking points that she cribbed from her Fox News confederates over the past couple of years:

“Being the leader of the free world has to be the most demanding job in the whole world, and he simply does not have the mental or physical stamina to do this job. And that is why his handlers and his wife who, by the way, look increasingly like Visiting Angels, have to schedule in these senior breaks for him so he can take naps and go for bike rides because he can’t concentrate on the job the way he should. I mean, just compare it to president Donald Trump who worked these long, long hours and had impromptu hourlong pressers with the media.”

Notice that Campos-Duffy’s lame assessment of Biden as lacking “mental or physical stamina” is just the recycled sneers that were used against Hillary Clinton five years ago. But what really sets this apart is that her “proof” that Biden’s health is diminished is that he is an avid biker. Yeah, that’s the ticket. And then she asks viewers to compare that with the exercise regime of Trump.

As a refresher, Trump was best known as a morbidly obese junk food junkie who spent up to nine hours every day (Executive Time) watching his “policy advisors” on Fox News and other right-wing propaganda networks. He would frequently avoid doing any work by hitting the links where he rode around in a golf cart all day. He wasted untold hours tweeting either undeserved exaltations of himself or bitter attacks on his foes. And he would occasionally show up behind the podium at one of his cult rallies where he just stood there and ranted for an hour or so. That’s not exactly a challenging workout.

Yet somehow Campos-Duffy and her Fox Friends cast Biden as the nap taker, despite his obviously more vigorous lifestyle, healthful appearance, and full work schedule. But that isn’t particularly surprising considering that Campos-Duffy has distinguished herself previously by blaming First Lady Jill Biden for problems in Afghanistan. She defended white supremacy. She promoted Trump’s “Big Lie” that the election was “rigged.” In other words, she is a fully indoctrinated Trump-fluffer who will do and say whatever her Fox News handlers tell her. That’s how she got her job, and she aims to keep it.

HUH? Tucker Carlson’s Crackpot Conspiracy that Vaccine Mandates Cancel Christianity

Fox News has spent the past year and a half promoting their recklessly pro-COVID, anti-vax agenda. It’s an editorial mission that steered their dimwitted viewers away from the simple, life-saving steps that would protect themselves and others. Consequently, the deadly coronavirus pandemic can now be accurately attributed to the “Fox News Variant” that is infecting and killing mostly Republicans and Trump cult followers at record levels.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Bullshit Factory

Fox News hosts and guests are staunchly devoted to spreading disinformation about COVID. However, no one is more guilty of the medical massacre in America today than Fox’s Chief Conspiracy Crackpot, Tucker Carlson. He has promoted the use of quack cures, espoused schizoid conspiracy theories that the vaccines don’t work, and even prodded his viewers to make false police reports of child abuse against parents whose children wear face masks.

On Monday evening Carlson took another step off the cliff of incoherence with a diatribe aimed at building more obstacles to the nation finally recovering from the COVID pandemic. In this episode, Carlson unleashed some bizarre accusations about the intentions of President Biden’s Defense Department mandating coronavirus vaccines for service members. Carlson ranted that…

“The point of mandatory vaccinations is to identify the sincere Christians in the ranks, the freethinkers, the men with high testosterone levels, and anyone else who does not love Joe Biden, and make them leave immediately. It’s a takeover of the U.S. military.

Seriously? Does Carlson actually believe that directing the military to get vaccinated against a virus that has already killed more than 675,000 Americans is a ‘takeover of the military’ by wimpy, Biden-loving, atheists? Does he also think it’s unmanly for soldiers to wear combat helmets? Are Air Force pilots cowards if they use parachutes? That gear, like vaccines, is intended to protect people from known hazards. But in Carlson’s world it is an attack on his holy Christianism and a show of weakness and/or impotence, which Carlson probably thinks is caused by the vaccines.

Carlson’s harangue is off-handedly referring to a faction of phony anti-vaxxers who are pretending to have a religious objection to getting vaccinated. But even far right evangelicals like Robert Jeffress aren’t buying it. Carlson also claimed that there was no need for a vaccine mandate because “Only 46 members of the entire U.S. military have died from the coronavirus over the last year and a half.” And, in Carlson’s view, they were expendable.

However, It should be noted that if Carlson had included the fatalities of military family members, civilian employees, and contractors, there were 473 deaths. Something that Carlson clearly fails to understand is that the wellbeing of the whole military community is critical to America’s defense readiness. While some soldiers are threatening to leave rather than get vaccinated, the prospect of many more becoming sick or dying would be much worse. But that’s only a part of the relevant context that Carlson left out.

First of all, Carlson failed to note that COVID deaths in the military have been increasing in the latest surge. The Military Times reported that “Eight total deaths in the past three weeks adds up to twice the previous monthly high” And the death rate is “25 times higher than it was last year.”

What’s more, according to Defense Department data, the reason for the relatively lower death rates is the high rate of vaccination in the ranks. 89% of soldiers in the Army have had at least one dose of the vaccine, The Marines are at 68%. the Navy is at 90%. And the Air Force is at 99%. That’s an average total of 89% of all service members vaccinated. If Carlson is pleased that there is a lower death rate in the military than the population at large, then if he were honest (yeah, right) he would have to admit that it’s because vaccines work.

So in the end, Carlson’s panic over apocryphal assaults on Christianity, free thinking, and machismo, are, as usual, figments of his perverse imagination. But it fits perfectly into his long-established pattern of fantastical fear mongering and aversion to the responsibility and compassion that decent humans display. And everyone at Fox News, particularly the Murdoch family that runs it, is complicit in the harm that is being done by Carlson and his confederates at Fox to the nation and the world.

Fox News Hack Peter Doocy Gets A Remedial Lesson in Immigration from Jen Psaki

Fox News might want to have their White House correspondent, Peter Doocy, examined by a mental health expert. He keeps displaying signs of masochism or other self-destructive behaviors whenever he is around President Biden’s press secretary, Jen Psaki.

Jen Psaki, Fox News, Peter Doocy

On Monday Doocy took his seat in the press briefing room and waited to be called upon to ask a question. When his opportunity came he proudly inquired as to certain procedures that are followed for testing refugees and migrants for the coronavirus. Unfortunately, he didn’t seem to understand even the most basic differences between the handling of migrants as opposed to citizens. So Psaki had to school him like a child:

Doocy: If somebody walks into the country right across the river, does somebody ask them to see their vaccination card?
Psaki: Let me explain to you again, Peter, how our process works. As individuals come across the border they are assessed for whether they have any symptoms. If they have symptoms the intention is for them to be quarantined. That is our process. They are not intending to stay here for a lengthy period of time. [Doocy interrupts to draw parallels with people flying into the U.S.]

Psaki: I don’t think it’s the same thing. It’s not the same thing. These are individuals as we’ve noted and as has been discussed. We are expelling individuals based on Title 42, specifically because of COVID, because we want to prevent a scenario where large numbers of people are gathering and posing a threat to the community and also to the migrants themselves. Those are the policies we put in place in large part because, again, the CDC continues to recommend Title 42 be in place given we’re facing a global pandemic.

For some reason, Doocy seems to think that undocumented migrants should be processed the same as people arriving on international flights with passports. Is he really unaware that some refugees might be traveling without papers or visas or even vaccination cards? They need to be processed differently due to their unique circumstances. But Doocy’s question implies that the circumstances are the same and so the procedures should be as well.

Psaki’s patience with inane questions like these is commendable. But when they come from the same person so frequently and predictably, you would think there would be a limit. Some of Doocy’s prior exchanges include the time he tried to conflate processes involving American employees with those involving immigrants. Or the time he failed to grasp that a pandemic is a moving target that requires constant reassessment. Or the time he tried to combine completely unrelated pandemic issues into one issue that he can exploit. And those are just the questions related to COVID.

It’s troubling that these questions have to be tolerated in a briefing room full of actual journalists who have substantive questions. The time wasted on Doocy is depriving the American people of answers to questions that will actually impact their lives. But this is one of the costs of having a free press wherein the Doocys of the world get their fifteen minutes of dumbassery.

Why is CBS News Still Obsessed with Dredging Up Braindead Trump Voters?

For some unfathomable reason, much of the mainstream media has an uncontrollable fixation on the muddled mindset of Donald Trump’s Legion of Losers. Despite being a shrinking minority of the populace who have set aside all semblance of reason, the press feels compelled to get their opinions about the current political landscape that they obviously can’t comprehend.

Donald Trump Rally, Sieg Heil

On Monday morning CBS News dispatched Ted Koppel to Mt. Airy, North Carolina, to engage the passengers on a Magical Mystery Tour of sorts. Their tour bus was headed for the fictional inspiration for “The Andy Griffith Show,” Mayberry, NC, where the sheriff, Andy Taylor, refused to carry a gun. And what could be a better metaphor for country hicks who believe in fantastical fairy tales, whether told by classic TV characters or crackpot conspiracy theorists?

This compulsion to explore the bitter psyches of voters whose candidate was decisively defeated by Joe Biden has precisely zero news value. And it is notable that there is almost never an effort to balance the record by interviewing Biden voters at a backwoods Waffle House who comprise the electoral majority. The press only seems to care about the Trumpian yokel worldview. Which led to this enlightening discussion (video below):

Koppel: Tell me what you think happened on January 6th at Congress.
Trumper 1: They showed truckloads of people that they were bringing in for this. It was all staged. And that’s how that happened. They even showed pictures of it from the news about these vehicles coming in with all these BLM [Black Lives Matter] people.
Trumper 2: We don’t even watch news on TV anymore. We don’t feel like that we are being told the truth. And we find our truth in other ways. And I won’t say what those other ways are, but I feel like we aren’t being told the truth because we’re trying to be swayed in a direction that we know is not the right direction.

It is frightening and sad that there are still delusional Trump cultists who believe that the January 6th insurrection was staged by radical lefties outfitted with Trump flags and fashion. That’s when they aren’t claiming that there was no insurrection at all and that the whole affair was peaceful. Trump himself said that “It was zero threat, right from the start… Some of them went in, and they are hugging and kissing the police.”

And never mind that scared Republicans in Congress, including the GOP minority leader Kevin McCarthy, were pleading with Trump to call off his brigades while the riots were still in progress. And forget about all the rioters who have bragged about their Capitol invasion adventure.

The “truckloads of people” brought in were not BLM moles. And the Trumpers never saw that on TV. We know that in part because it didn’t happen, and in part because they admitted that “We don’t even watch news on TV anymore.” And it’s cute that they claim to have “other ways” to find truth, but that they won’t say what they are.

The Trumpists can’t seem to decide whether the insurrection occurred, or was just a love-in, or was a righteous protest, or was – according to Tucker Carlson – orchestrated by the FBI. In the meantime, Koppel’s bus blather continued…

Koppel: When President Trump talked about the press being the enemy of the people…
Trumpers: They are. I love President Trump. I love that man. I do.
Trumper 3: I just hope that when this airs it won’t show Southerners as a bunch of dumb idiots like so many parts of the country do. We have a lot of love in our hearts. We love our country. We love our follow man. And if the rest of the country felt like that, it would be a better place.

So the answer to the question about whether the press is the enemy of the people is that they love Donald Trump. And after that utterly inane comment they worry about being perceived as “a bunch of dumb idiots.” Well, if that ship hadn’t sailed before, she just cast it off.

What’s more, if they want people to believe that they have Love in their hearts, they probably shouldn’t be accusing Black Americans of being violent provocateurs, or calling journalists enemies of the people, or defending Trump’s lies and disinformation that is dividing the nation and undermining democracy. Those are hardly expressions of either love or patriotism.

Fox News Poll Affirms that America Overwhelmingly Supports Biden’s COVID Policies

In what has become a recurring circus of hypocrisies, Fox News has released a poll that contrasts sharply with their editorial positions on the coronavirus. The staunchly pro-COVID network routinely features commentaries from their hosts and guests that malign efforts to mitigate the harm caused by the virus, such as getting vaccinated and wearing face masks.

Joe Biden, GOP, Titanic

Fox News spent months downplaying the severity of the virus, in synchrony with Donald Trump’s deliberate pattern of deception. Trump and Fox News have even refused to promote common sense mitigation practices for fear of upsetting the Trump cult and/or benefitting President Biden.

However, the latest poll from Fox News reveals where the American people stand on Biden’s plan to defeat COVID. And it does not remotely match the anti-vaccine, anti-mask, malarkey peddled by the likes of Tucker Carlson (who says that vaccines don’t work), Sean Hannity (who steers viewers away from getting vaccinated), and Laura Ingraham (who mocks CDC guidelines). In fact, the results show that Biden’s plan – that was viciously disparaged on Fox News – is favored by significant majorities of the American people. for instance…

  • 69% believe face masks are effective
  • 65% believe vaccines are effective
  • 67% believe schools should require masks for teachers and students
  • 66% believe businesses should require masks for employees and customers
  • 61% support vaccine mandates for teachers
  • 58% support vaccine mandates for federal government employees
  • 55% support vaccine mandates for business employees
  • 56% favor requiring businesses with 100+ employees to require vaccination or weekly testing
  • 54% favor requiring proof of vaccination to participate in indoor activities
  • 55% approve of Biden’s overall handling of the pandemic

These numbers show that most Americans are not fooled by the Fox News lies and disinformation. They have the common sense to do the right thing. And Democrats should be encouraged by the support for Biden’s initiatives. In fact, they should run hard on these results and challenge Republicans to defend their pro-COVID positions. After all, almost all of the new cases, hospitalizations and fatalities are among the unvaccinated. And that means they are mostly among Fox News viewers and Trump Republicans.

Separately, Fox News also released a poll on the human infrastructure legislation proposed by Biden and Democrats in Congress. It found that the $3.5 trillion bill is favored 56% to 39%. Also, Biden’s overall job rating is 50% approval, despite a rash of bad news about the Delta variant surge, and the Afghanistan withdrawal.

These polls are further evidence of the strength of the Democratic agenda going into the 2022 midterm elections. And Democrats need to recognize that strength and use it to push a blue wave of voters in November of next year.

Eric Trump Whines to Fox News About Getting ‘Subpoena After Subpoena After Subpoena’

There aren’t very many things that are more pathetic than a trust fund billionaire baby bawling on national television because he thinks he has been so grossly mistreated by the powerful elitist class that he has always been a part of – or hoped to be. But that’s the spectacle of doleful victimhood playing out on Fox News by Eric Trump, spawn of Donald.

Fox News, Maria Bartiromo, Eric Trump

Little Eric was “interviewed” by Fox’s Senior Trump-Fluffer, Maria Bartiromo (video below). The segment began with Bartiromo and Trump reanimating a zombie story about Hillary Clinton and slandering her without a smidgen of evidence. That segued into a defense of the vaccine expertise of Dr. Nicki Minaj and her cousin’s friend’s swollen testicles. And in between the pair pontificated on “the problem with the Democrats…”

“The problem with the Democrats is they dig so deep that they always find themselves. And the reason I’m frustrated about this is every single day since my father ran for president, my father and our entire family and our company has been under investigation. Every single day, Maria, we get subpoena after subpoena after subpoena.”

If Eric is disturbed that he and his crime family have received so many subpoenas, he might want to try committing fewer crimes. After all, the Trumps have already been found guilty of a cornucopia of corruption from running a crooked charitable foundation to operating a sham university, and so much more. But Eric still hadn’t sufficiently expunged his paranoia and wrath. He continued…

“I mean, they [Democrats] weaponized the entire system in this country. They’ve weaponized the DOJ. They’ve weaponized our military. They weaponized the educational system in this country. They’ve weaponized the medical system in this country. The Democrats weaponize absolutely everything they can to use again their political opponents.”

This is textbook projection on Eric’s part. His father planted shameless sycophants in Cabinet posts and White House positions, including his daughter and son-in-law, Ivanka and Jared Kushner. And he tasked them with missions of vengeance against his foes, political and personal. President Biden has done none of that, and Eric conspicuously failed to provide a single example.

However, Eric did declare his support for another Trump campaign for the White House. After a leading question by Bartiromo that alleged some vague but rampant corruption in Washington, she asked if Eric wanted daddy to run again. Sleazy E replied

“You know, I do. Because, honestly, he’s the only person who can save this country. And it is an incredibly corrupt system. I see it every single day. It’s incredibly corrupt. My father returned respect to this country.”

Once again, Donald Trump is held up as the Great Messiah who is the sole savior of humanity. Never mind that in his First Coming he nearly destroyed the nation by mismanaging the deadly COVID pandemic. killing more than a half million Americans. He tanked the economy throwing millions out of work and bankrupting thousands of small businesses. He divided the nation with his overtly racist rhetoric and support for white nationalists. Then he sought to stage a coup and crush democracy (which he’s still trying to do) because he couldn’t handle being a big loser.

Naturally, Fox News is aiding and abetting the Trump crusade to undermine democracy and our constitutional republic. Even though Trump himself has taken to lambasting Fox as a part of the “lamestream media,” the network continues to provide a platform for Trump and his brand of lies and disinformation. It’s what they were created to do, and thus it ever will be.

Trump Attacks Biden and ‘Incompetent Generals’ In ‘Disgraceful’ Anti-American Rant

Among Donald Trump’s most dishonest political facades is his utterly disingenuous pandering to patriotism. He will flaccidly fling clichés like “America First” while acting out in ways that demonstrate his hostility to this nation and its people.

Donald Trump, Police

For instance, Trump recently took the side of the traitorous South in the Civil War, he shunned tributes to the victims and heroes on the twentieth anniversary of 9/11, and he continues to peddle his “Big Lie” that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged” and “stolen” from him.

On Friday Trump proved once again how low his opinion of America is in a tweet (posted in violation of his Twitter ban) criticizing the tragic accidental killing of Afghan civilians by an errant drone bomb. It was truly a horrific blunder that tears at the hearts of all decent people. But true to form, Trump couldn’t restrain himself from politicizing this tragedy:

“How disgraceful that so many people have been killed because of our incompetent Generals. The Biden Administration wanted to show that they were tough guys after they surrendered to the Taliban, which left many soldiers injured or dead and left Americans and the best Military equipment in the World behind. Our Country has never been so embarrassed or humiliated.”

It’s important to note that Trump only knows about this because the U.S. military, under President Biden’s leadership, took full responsibility for what happened. That’s something Trump has never done. But Trump’s reaction is repugnant on many levels.

First of all, the generals who Trump is insulting as “incompetent” were also on duty throughout his administration. So wouldn’t that make him equally as liable? Secondly, it was Trump who negotiated the “surrender agreement” (in the words of his own National Security advisor) with the Taliban. Thirdly, the equipment that was left behind was not abandoned. It was intended for use by Afghan troops who, unfortunately, failed to step up.

More to the point, if Trump thinks that the loss of ten civilian lives in this incident is “disgraceful,” what must he think about the fact that civilian deaths occurred with much greater frequency during his term? In fact, As reported at the time, the increase in civilian fatalities was due directly to Trump’s incompetent decisions:

“Civilian deaths skyrocketed in Afghanistan under President Donald Trump, whose administration relaxed the rules of engagement for airstrikes in 2017. […] Airstrikes killed 700 civilians in Afghanistan in 2019 alone, more than any other year since the early days of the war in 2002.”

Trump even tried to hide his murderous malfeasance by revoking a policy set by President Obama that required U.S. intelligence officials to publish the number of civilians killed in drone strikes. And as for Trump’s childish dig about the Biden administration wanting “to show that they were tough guys,” it was Trump who recklessly dropped “the Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB) – nicknamed the ‘Mother of All Bombs’ – in April 2017 […] the first combat deployment of that weapon in any war zone.”

Trump’s animosity toward the military is well documented, going back to his five phony deferments from service during the Vietnam war. And then there was his disparagement of Sen. John McCain for having been been captured and spending six years as a prisoner of war. More recently, as president Trump demeaned America’s fallen soldiers, referring to them as “suckers” and “losers.” It’s a record of shamelessness for which one could truly say that “Our Country has never been so embarrassed or humiliated.”

Trump’s Impotent and Insane Letter Asking Georgia to ‘Decertify’ the 2020 Election

The madness of wannabe king Donald Trump continues to swirl down the drain of irrelevancy. His obsession with having decisively lost the 2020 presidential election to Joe Biden is gnawing away at what’s left of his diseased brain. And his persistently reckless behavior is likely to foment violent insurrection, just as it did on January 6th.

Donald Trump Circling the Drain

This week Trump expressed his emphatic support for the insurrectionists who stormed the Capitol eight months ago. He gushed that “Our hearts and minds are with the people being persecuted.” By which he meant the Constitution-hating rioters who attacked Congress and injured more than 140 police officers.

On Friday, CNN reported that the district attorney of Fulton County, Georgia, Fani Willis, is quietly proceeding with the criminal investigation into Trump’s election interference. According to CNN

“[C]riminal investigators in the state have been quietly conducting interviews, collecting documents and working to build a line of communication with congressional investigators as they aim to build a case against the former President for his alleged attempts to overturn the state’s 2020 election results.” […]

“Willis was investigating potential crimes, including ‘solicitation of election fraud, the making of false statements to state and local governmental bodies, conspiracy, racketeering, violation of oath of office and any involvement in violence or threats related to the election’s administration.'”

As the walls close in around Trump, he is reacting just as one would expect a malignant narcissist to react. He posted a rambling, run-on tweet via his spokes-shill, Liz Harrington (whose proxy Trump tweeting is violating Twitter’s rules against circumventing a ban). It was rife with fear and the sort of inane bombast that is his hallmark. Trump said that…

“Large scale Voter Fraud continues to be reported in Georgia…43,000 Absentee Ballot Votes Counted in DeKalb County that violated the Chain of Custody rules, making them invalid. I would respectfully request that your department check this and, if true, along with many other claims of voter fraud and voter irregularities, start the process of decertifying the Election, or whatever the correct legal remedy is, and announce the true winner. As stated to you previously, the number of false and/or irregular votes is far greater than needed to change the Georgia election results. People do not understand why you and Governor Brian Kemp adamantly refuse to acknowledge the now proven facts, and fight so hard that the election truth not be told. You and Governor Kemp are doing a tremendous disservice to the Great State of Georgia and to our nation – which is systematically being destroyed by an illegitimate president and his administration. The truth must be allowed to come out. Thank you for you attention to this matter.”

From the outset, Trump’s tweet was a ludicrous mangling of reality. There has been no “Large scale Voter Fraud” whatsoever. And all of Trump’s 60+ attempts to prove it were laughed out of court. Also, no legal process for “decertifying” the election exists anywhere but in the imaginations of Trump and his cult followers. Trump’s assertion that there were more “false and/or irregular votes” than needed for him to win is a figment of the same twisted imaginations.

Finally, Biden was and is the winner of the election and is the legitimate President. But that didn’t deter Trump from predictably throwing an infantile and ultra hyperbolic swipe at Biden who is working hard to undo Trump’s much more literal efforts to destroy the nation by undermining the people’s faith in democracy and inciting hostility and sedition.

The case in Georgia that is so frightening to Trump stems from his threatening phone call to Georgia election officials last January. Trump called Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and pressured him to “find” the extra votes needed for Trump to win the state. “I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have,” Trump demanded. The whole conversation was recorded and Trump is heard explicitly pressuring Raffensperger, and even threatening to charge him with criminal acts, if he doesn’t comply with Trump’s flagrantly unlawful ultimatum.

Now Trump thinks that this “respectful” letter to Raffensperger will somehow cause the Georgia results to be declared invalid making Trump the victor. Which is just the latest evidence that he is irredeemably insane and incapable of rational thought. The only thing this lie-riddled, pitiful and futile letter accomplishes is exposing how scared he is of the long overdue consequences of his unlawful acts.
