The Daily Show Hysterically Highlights the Hatred of Trump by Those Who Know Him Best

The 2024 Republican National Convention has officially wrapped with the certification of convicted felon Donald Trump as the Party’s presidential nominee. And few observers will dispute that it was everything that it promised top be: A festival of angry, racist, cult followers devoted to an aspiring authoritarian and make-believe messiah.

Donald Trump

Trump’s closing speech was notable for its interminable 90 minute length (the longest ever), it’s abundance of lies, its overt bigotry, and it’s extraordinary sedative effect. Convention delegates were seen nodding off or leaving early as the speech extended until past midnight without offering a single policy proposal or any solutions to real problems that the American people care about. And home viewers, the ones who stayed up, were similarly unimpressed…

SEE THIS: Trump’s MAGA RNC Convention Suffers Sharp Ratings Decline From Prior Years and Biden Speech

Instead, Trump spent an hour and half tearing down the country, denigrating the institutions that provide benefits to its citizens, and exalting himself with delusional portrayals of his term in office that is best remembered for COVID mortality, tax cuts for the rich, job losses, and hate speech.

Jordan Klepper of the The Daily Show was among those who noticed just how awful this convention was. He focused part of his monologue on the roster of speakers for the affair. But even more significant, were the people who were prominent in the Trump administration who didn’t bother to show up. And not because they were otherwise engaged. Klepper noted that…

“The campaign for president is basically one big job interview. The convention is where America checks the candidate’s references. And to be sure, there were plenty of people willing to vouch for Donald Trump. He’s got ex-cons, domestic abusers, fake wrestlers, fake friends, his children, people sleeping with his children, and of course, the esteemed mayor of Whoville.

“But if this is a job interview, it’s worth noting who we didn’t see: Most of the people that actually worked with him at the White House. And if American is gonna do our due diligence, we might as well call our references to hear what they have to say about him.”

Whereupon, Klepper played a montage of some of the top appointees in the Trump administration who are repulsed by him and regard him as a danger to democracy. For instance…

  • Mike Pence: Anyone who puts themselves over the Constitution should never be president.
  • Mark Esper (Secretary of Defense): I think he’s unfit for office.
  • John Bolton (National Security Adviser): Richard Nixon looks like a choir boy next to Donald Trump.
  • Ty Cobb (Trump attorney): The greatest threat to democracy that we’ve ever seen.
  • Mick Mulvaney (Chief of Staff): He failed at being the president when we needed him to be that.
  • Gen. Mark Milley (Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff): A wannabe dictator.
  • Bill Barr (Attorney General): He shouldn’t be anywhere near the Oval Office.
  • Gen. John Kelly (Chief of Staff): A person with nothing but contempt for for our democratic institutions, our Constitution, and the rule of law.
  • Gen. Jim Mattis (Secretary of Defense): The president has the understanding of a 5th or 6th grader.
  • Rex Tillerson (Secretary of State): He’s an F’ing moron!

These are not the criticisms of partisan Democrats. They are warnings from the people that Trump had chosen to staff his White House and Cabinet. They know him well and worked closely with him during the tumultuous times of Trump’s troubled tenure. And they are adamant that he not be returned to any position of authority.

Yet somehow, his glassy-eyed cult disciples remain transfixed. They are unmoved (or perhaps aroused) by his two impeachments, his 34 felony convictions, his 54 still pending felony charges, his judgement for nearly half a billion dollars for financial fraud, or his adjudication as a rapist. They aren’t worried about his explicit promise to be a “dictator on day one,” or his “Project 2025” handbook for fascism. Because, after all, his opponent, President Biden, is three years older than he is.

Equally as concerning as the list of people who despise Trump, are those who Trump admires. Along with the convention speakers (i.e. Tucker Carlson, Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Ted Cruz, Peter Navarro, etc.), Trump bragged about having the support of Kim Jong Un and the Taliban during his speech. And with friends like that, who needs enemas?

Trump and the GOP Show Their Fear of Veterans By Suing to Make it Harder for Them to Vote

The Republican Party has never been particularly interested in democracy. For decades they have endeavored to suppress voting and place obstacles in front of citizens (primarily Blacks and other minorities, and Democrats in general) who wish to exercise their rights. It was so bad that, until a recent Supreme Court ruling, states with a history of racial discrimination were subject to a “preclearance” requirement in the Voting Rights Act mandating federal approval before changing election policy.

Donald Trump WTF

The core tactics employed by Republican campaigns have been to obstruct voting by imposing pointless voter ID laws, prohibiting opportunities to vote via early access and mail-in ballots, and challenging election outcomes. All of which were designed shrink the electorate to just the privileged few who Republicans approve of. They justify it by making wholly unsupported allegations of rampant voter fraud for which they have never been able to produce a shred of evidence. Well, except for GOP fraud…

SEE THIS: WARNING: Lara Trump Swears to Track Down and Prosecute Election Cheaters – Like Donald Trump?

This week the Donald Trump campaign, along with the Republican National committee (RNC) that is headed up by his daughter-in-lawlessness, Lara Trump, filed a lawsuit to prohibit voter registration of fully eligible citizens, and specifically veterans. As reported by Talking Points Memo

“The Republican National Committee and Donald Trump’s campaign have filed a lawsuit in federal court against Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson over their efforts to make voter registration more accessible. […] More specifically, the legal challenge takes issue with a directive Whitmer issued last year, which, under the National Voter Registration Act, designated local Small Business Administration (SBA) offices as well as the Department of Veteran Affairs offices as voter registration sites.”

What better way for Trump to demonstrate his support for veterans – the folks he regards as “suckers and losers” – than to make it more difficult for them to register and vote? And not only veterans, but small business owners as well. Trump surely doesn’t want hordes of “mom and pop” shop owners getting in the way of the wealthy corporations that fund his campaign and pay his legal bills.

More to the point, this is the MAGA GOP’s effort to keep those they consider “undesirable” from voting. They have also opposed voter registration at the DMV, or at colleges, or at public assistance offices, or anywhere else that ordinary Americans might have cause to go. However, they have never objected to voter registration drives and luxury hotels or country club golf resorts.

The lawsuit is also an attempt by “Trump and his allies [to] set themselves up to cry voter fraud in any state the former president might lose in the fall.” He has already begun his incantations of voter fraud in expectation of his defeat. He and his cult devotees are insisting that the only way he can lose is if Democrats cheat. In other words, Trump and his MAGA disciples have no intention of respecting the election results unless he is the winner. Which means that they might attempt another January 6th style coup to prevent President Biden’s reelection from being certified.

America’s veterans and active military must recognize that Trump is is not on their side. At best he is using them for his own benefit. Which is true about every other voter group in the country. Trump has never cared about anyone but himself. And his actions, such as this lawsuit, continue to confirm that.

Trump’s MAGA RNC Convention Suffers Sharp Ratings Decline From Prior Years and Biden Speech

The Republican National Convention launched this week and immediately rocketed into the hearts of the America people with such MAGA luminaries as Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, puppy killing South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, model and reality TV personality Amber Rose, White nationalist whisperer Charlie Kirk, and, of course, Dear Leader himself, Donald Trump.

Donald Trump, Stock Market

The popularity of the GOP roster was promoted as a blockbuster lineup that threatened to break all records for television viewing as the Trump Train chugged into the nation’s homes via the media that it regards as the “enemy of the people.” Never mind that Trump is among the most despised political figures in decades who voters find repulsive for both his policies and his personality.

SEE THIS: Nearly 70% are More Worried About a President Who is a Liar than One Who is Old – Trump is Both

The ratings for the first day of the Convention are out, and they reflect just how deplorable he is held by the American people. As reported by Variety

“The first telecasts of the Republican National Convention on Monday drew in 18.1 million viewers across networks, per Nielsen.

“That total, measured during the 10 p.m. ET hour, accounts for 12 broadcasters and cablers: ABC, CBS, NBC, Scripps News, Telemundo, CNN, Fox Business, Fox News Channel, MSNBC, Newsmax, NewsNation and PBS, with Nielsen noting that Telemundo only aired 9 minutes of RNC coverage.

“Fox News led the pack by far with 6.9 million viewers at 10 p.m. Next was ABC with 2.3 million viewers, NBC with 2.2 million, CBS with 1.8 million, MSNBC with 1.3 million and CNN with 1.1 million.”

It should come as no surprise that Fox News – Trump’s Ministry of Propaganda – would deliver the lion’s share of the convention audience. Meanwhile, the rest of the nation that watches more credible news sources got comparatively little exposure to the RNC’s unreality show. So Trump had sparse opportunity to spread his message to anyone but the already indoctrinated members of the MAGA cult. And Fox News benefited from the broadcast, despite Trump’s own vacillating opinion of the ultra-rightist outlet.

It is notable that the 18 million viewers that watched the affair on Monday is considerably less than the 23 million that tuned into the RNC’s convention in 2016. And it is also only slightly more than than the 17 million who watched in 2020, even though that convention was largely scrapped due to COVID. Furthermore, this feeble showing occurred despite newsworthy highlights including Trump naming his vice-presidential running mate, and this being his first public appearance since the “Earlobe Stigmata” he received at his Pennsylvania rally.

What may be most painful for Trump is that the ratings for his convention so far are also far less than the 24 million viewers that President Biden drew for his post-NATO press conference just last week. So it’s another defeat for Trump at the hands of “Sleepy Joe.” It won’t be long before Trump whines that the Nielsen ratings are “rigged” and the whole thing is a “hoax” and/or a “witch hunt” aimed at “stealing” his victory.

This Just In: The RNC’s ratings for the second night also declined from 2016 and 2020. This year the Trump gala drew only 14.8 million viewers, compared to 19 million for each of the prior two conventions.

Trump Spokesmodel Tells Fox News that ‘the Left is Godless’ in Post-Shooting Play for – Unity?

Republicans have spent years proclaiming themselves to be the party of Jesus. They regard their people and their policies as the divine product of pure Christian conviction. And therefore, whatever they do and say is sanctioned by god and elevated from merely the political to the pious.

Flaming Trump

The fulfillment of that feeble faithfulness has finally been achieved with the descent of Donald Trump to the Earthly realm. His MAGA cult disciples revere him as a messenger from heaven, despite his alignment with a place much farther down. They believe that he was sent to slay their foes (i.e. Blacks, gays, and all manner of liberals). The MAGAtists see him that way because he sees himself that way, and who are they to disagree? They will obediently comply and bequeath unto him their funds to purchase his Trump-branded bible and cover his legal expenses incurred from his communion with porn stars and committing fraud. And then there’s this…

SEE THIS: Immaculate Birther: Donald Trump Says He Doesn’t Have To Ask God For Forgiveness

In the days that followed the shooting in Pennsylvania that resulted in Trump’s “Earlobe Stigmata,” many of Trump’s devotees have testified on television that he is the beneficiary of divine intervention by virtue of his having survived. They apparently believe that the Trump fan who died deserved it, so god forsook him. And on Tuesday morning, the preachers on Fox News visited with Trump’s Deputy Director of Communications (aka Propaganda), Caroline Sunshine, to glory in the light of the Don. Trump’s Sunshine engaged in the following exchange with Fox’s Harris Faulkner…

Faulkner: People are praying for him. People have tapped into that. How does the left come against that? What are they gonna do?
Sunshine: I think the left is godless. And I don’t feel like it’s hard to say that. I don’t say that from a place of malice. I say that as a woman of deep faith myself.[…]

The MAGA movement is full of people that love our country, but love god. What president Trump survived is divine intervention. […] It’s good to remember that good does defeat evil.”

Harris is correct that people have been praying for Trump. Including President Biden, Kamala Harris, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Hakeem Jeffries, and many more of the Democrats who offered their prayers, but who Faulkner never mentioned, and who Sunshine believes are evil.

Sunshine claims that her accusation that “the left is godless” comes from being “a woman of deep faith.” That is an explicitly anti-Christian attitude. She might want to refer to Matthew 7, that warns “Judge not, that ye be not judged.” And despite her denial, she is speaking purely with malice. There is simply no other way to describe it. Particularly when she elaborates by implying that Democrats are “evil.”

It’s also notable that these malicious comments come so soon after many Americans of all political persuasions have expressed their desire to turn down the harsh rhetoric and seek to unite the country in its common goals. Both Biden and Trump have publicly promised to do so. But only Biden has kept that promise. Trump, on the other hand, has bizarrely defined “unity” as giving him the freedom to commit crimes at will. and his MAGAtists have gone full bore into blaming Biden and Democrats for the violence that Trump has incited for years.

The phony piety of pseudo-religious Republicans has long registered abnormally high on the hypocrisy scale. But now, with Trump’s resurrection from near – er, make that ear – death, it is completely off the charts. Their adoption of Trump as messiah is complete. And they will proselytize that blasphemy from now until November 5th, and probably longer. Especially if he loses. That’s what cults do.

Felonious Trump Says Uniting the Nation Means Giving Him the Freedom to Commit Crimes at Will

On the same day that the MAGA Republican National Convention began in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, a shamelessly biased judge in Florida dismissed the case against Donald Trump wherein he was charged with stealing classified documents, hoarding them at his Mar-a-Lago home/hotel, and lying to the FBI about having them. It is a ruling that is steeped in the sort of sophistry that defines cult worship.

Judge Aileen Cannon has been serving as Trump’s de facto lead defense counsel from the start of the trial. And now she has, in effect, unilaterally acquitted Dear Leader as his coronation to become the Republican nominee for president becomes official, and just 48 hours after he received the stigmata by having had his ear nicked by a crackpot’s bullet. Which, of course was all President Biden’s doing…

SEE THIS: MAGA World Blames Biden and Democrats for the Violence that Trump Has Incited for Years

America has never before suffered the indignity of a former, or gawd forbid future, president being charged with 88 felonies. And the genuflecting GOP isn’t the least bit ashamed of embracing a candidate who is a convicted felon, financial fraudster, and adjudicated rapist.

In this polluted political environment that Trump is accepting his clan’s consecration with the humility of a preening prima donna. On his floundering social media scam, Truth Social, Trump posted a comment intended to display a sympathetic side of him that is unexpected – that is rarely seen – that doesn’t exist. It was his attempt, in the wake of a shooting by a fellow Republican, to suppress his decades long reputation as a hate-mongering divider, and to portray himself anew as a saintly uniter. He wrote in his typically long-winded style that…

“As we move forward in Uniting our Nation after the horrific events on Saturday, this dismissal of the Lawless Indictment in Florida should be just the first step, followed quickly by the dismissal of ALL the Witch Hunts — The January 6th Hoax in Washington, D.C., the Manhattan D.A.’s Zombie Case, the New York A.G. Scam, Fake Claims about a woman I never met (a decades old photo in a line with her then husband does not count), and the Georgia ‘Perfect’ Phone Call charges. The Democrat Justice Department coordinated ALL of these Political Attacks, which are an Election Interference conspiracy against Joe Biden’s Political Opponent, ME. Let us come together to END all Weaponization of our Justice System, and Make America Great Again!”

Did you catch Trump’s call for harmony in that commentary? If not, it may be because it was it was wrapped in his obsession with himself. To Trump to “move forward in Uniting our Nation” has nothing to do with compassion for others, or moderating his insults and rage, or refraining from lies about his perceived enemies. Unity is solely a function of granting him immunity from any and all crimes he has committed or will commit in the future.

Even in this supposed petition for peace, Trump characterizes the well documented charges against him dishonestly as “Witch Hunts,” with dismissive and infantile nicknames for them all (“January 6th Hoax,” “Manhattan D.A.’s Zombie Case,” “New York A.G. Scam,” “Fake Claims about a woman I never met,” “Georgia ‘Perfect’ Phone Call”).

Trump then goes on to lie, saying that “The Democrat Justice Department coordinated ALL of these Political Attacks.” Actually, only one of the cases he listed was filed by a Justice Department prosecutor. The rest were all state cases that were not coordinated with the feds in any way. What he is really looking for is the absolution that he believes was granted by the Supreme Court’s ludicrous ruling that presidents are entitled to immunity for crimes that they actually commit.

SEE ALSO: Total Insanity: Trump Says the Supreme Court’s Immunity Decision is a ‘Total Exoneration’

Yet still Trump pretends to seek unity by asking “Let us come together to END all Weaponization.” Does that include the GOP Speaker, MAGA Mike Johnson, shutting down the phony inquisitions by Reps. James Comer and Jim Jordan? You know, the ones who have been humiliating themselves in hearings that not only failed to turn up any evidence against Biden or his family, but their own witnesses actually cleared them of any wrongdoing.

Naturally, Trump’s plea to unite by ending all “weaponization” means only that which is directed at him. He still insists that the rabidly partisan Republicans in Congress continue to persecute Biden, his family, and his administration. They just tried, and failed, to have Attorney General Merrick Garland arrested for contempt of Congress because he refused to acquiesce to their…let’s say witch hunt to smear Biden.

That’s the true nature of Trump’s idea of unity. It doesn’t include finding common ground with Democrats. It has nothing to do with lowering the temperature after the shooting in Pennsylvania. It isn’t even about what benefits the Republican Party. As is evident in his Truth Social post, it is wholly built around whatever is in Trump’s personal best interest. Nothing else matters to him. Nothing. That’s it. Will voters – even Republicans – fall for it? We’ll see.

MAGA World Blames Biden and Democrats for the Violence that Trump Has Incited for Years

First Things First: Violence in the pursuit of political ends is never acceptable. Those who choose bullets over ballots are not only barbarous cretins, they are counterproductive to their own twisted objectives. Case in point: The tinhorn terrorist who shot at Donald Trump didn’t advance his goals one bit, but he did give Trump the imprimatur of political martyr that he has long coveted.

Donald Trump, Fox News, QAnon

That said, the reactions coming from many of Trump’s MAGA confederates have served only to inflame the division and hostility that has been a hallmark of Trump’s tactics since embarking on a career as a populist cult leader. Their seething animus and warped fixation on vengeance has been turned up to a raging boil. It’s a state that Trump has guided them toward all along (and resulted in the January 6th insurrection), even while pretending that it’s his opponents who are prone to violence…

SEE THIS: PROJECTION: The Creators of Trump’s Project 2025 Say Biden is Plotting to Retain Power By Force

Rather than trying to cool down the rhetoric and find unity in opposition to violence, the MAGA Klan has been furiously blaming President Biden and other Democrats for the loathsome acts of a lone wolf, who it turns out was a registered Republican. They complain that Biden has ratcheted up the rhetoric by accurately pointing out why Trump is a threat to democracy. But they dismiss Trump’s unwarranted name-calling of Biden and every Democrat as “radical Marxists and fascist thugs.” Among the StormTrumpers who have explicitly exploited the shooting are prominent Republican members of Congress. For instance…

  • JD Vance: “The central premise of the Biden campaign is that President Donald Trump is an authoritarian fascist who must be stopped at all costs. That rhetoric led directly to President Trump’s attempted assassination.”
  • Mike Collins: “Joe Biden sent the orders.”
  • Ronny Jackson: “Trump-deranged Left wing LUNATICS that parade around MSNBC and other FAKE NEWS “outlets” demonizing Trump and calling him Hitler are DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE for this violent attack on President Trump’s life!! They have BLOOD on their hands.”
  • Marjorie Taylor Greene: “Someone just tried to ASSASSINATE President Trump. The Democrats and the media are to blame for every drop of blood spilled today. […] President Trump said “FIGHT,” SO WE WILL!!”

And that’s not all. Republicans have also quickly pivoted to make political hay of the event, boasting that, as a result of the shooting, Trump “just won the election.” And GOP Sen. Mike Lee thinks that Trump should be granted immunity for his own completely unrelated criminal conduct in a call for Biden “to immediately order that all federal criminal charges against President Trump be dropped.”

SEE ALSO: Total Insanity: Trump Says the Supreme Court’s Immunity Decision is a ‘Total Exoneration’

The fact that the shooter was a registered Republican is not necessarily determinative of anything, because there are lots of Republicans who oppose Trump. Including many of his former Cabinet heads and administration staffers. But it does eliminate the right-wing blather about an alleged Democratic shooter.

As for Trump, he sent out a message prior to the Pennsylvania rally that promised that “ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE IN ONE HOUR” and that “I could be making a MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT that’s sure to strike FEAR into the hearts of our DEEP STATE ENEMIES.” Those are not exactly the sort of comments that precede a peacefully rally.

Meanwhile, in stark contrast to the MAGA GOP, it is Democrats who have taken the safe and sane approach, calling for unity and the repudiation of violence. Everyone from Kamala Harris, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Hakeem Jeffries, and many more have all said that political violence is unacceptable and offered their prayers for the welfare of Trump and the other victims. President Biden himself made a public statement of concern for both Trump and the state of American politics…

Unfortunately, if the remarks by the Republicans above and others are any indication, the MAGA crowd does not appear ready or able to behave themselves. Hopefully they will have a change of heart. And the Republican convention that begins next week will reveal what course they intend to take going forward.

PROJECTION: The Creators of Trump’s Project 2025 Say Biden is Plotting to Retain Power By Force

The extremist right-wing faction in America that forms the core of the Cult of Trump has long been defined by the regressive policies advanced by the ultra-conservative Heritage Foundation. It’s an organization that has recently enjoyed a spike in media attention with its release of “Project 2025,” a 900 page handbook for fascism that was authored by many of Donald Trump’s closest associates.

Donald Trump Insurrection

In case you missed it, Project 2025 is a manual for constructing an authoritarian state run by MAGA Republicans. It calls for expanding presidential powers to exert unprecedented control over all executive branch agencies, It proposes to terminate civil service staffers and replace them with MAGA loyalists, enacting voter suppression measures, repealing healthcare legislation, deregulating corporations, imposing media censorship, and more. It’s so abhorrent and unpopular that Trump has tried to distance himself from it…

SEE THIS: Trump Denies Knowing Anything About the ‘Abysmal’ Project 2025 that He Definitely Knows About

A new report reveals the lengths that Trump and his Heritage Foundation confederates will go to consolidate power and suppress the democratic principles enshrined in the Constitution. As reported by the Associated Press

“A conservative think tank that is planning for a complete overhaul of the federal government in the event of a Republican presidential win is suggesting that President Joe Biden might try to hold the White House ‘by force’ if he loses the November election.

“The Heritage Foundation’s warning — which goes against Biden’s own public statements — appeared in a report released Thursday [alleging that] the current president and his administration not only possesses the means, but perhaps also the intent, to circumvent constitutional limits and disregard the will of the voters should they demand a new president.”

That, of course, is totally absurd. And it is another textbook example of the projection that is practiced by the far-right. It is, in fact, precisely what Trump has already tried to do, and threatens to do again with what we can now call “Projection 2025.”

For instance, Trump incited the violent January 6, 2021, insurrection that ransacked Congress and put a 140 police officers in the hospital. He has literally called for “terminating” the Constitution. He has showed utter contempt for the will of voters with his relentless and baseless assertions that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged” and “stolen” from him. He also conspired to replace legitimate electors with his own fake alternatives. And he and his surrogates have collaborated with Russian operatives to spread disinformation.

The allegations by the Heritage hacks have no basis in reality. It is Biden, who unlike Trump, has promised to accept the election results. It is Biden who respects the limitations on government and the presidency. That was made more evident following the Supreme Court’s finding that a president can be immune from criminal prosecution for crimes that he or she actually commits. Trump, on the other hand, embraced that ruling and falsely claimed that it “exonerated” him…

MORE HERE: Total Insanity: Trump Says the Supreme Court’s Immunity Decision is a ‘Total Exoneration’

The Heritage Foundation went on to make preposterous charges about what it called “Biden’s ‘weaponization of government’ and ‘record of violating norms and constitutional limitations on executive power.'” Once again, that is pure projection, and a better description of Trump’s behavior, than anything remotely associated with Biden.

In fact, the Heritage Foundation’s president, Kevin Roberts, leveled an overt threat saying that “we are in the process of the second American Revolution, which will remain bloodless if the left allows it to be.” In other words, he is saying that the left had better acquiesce to his demands or there will be bloodshed.

All of these ludicrous and dangerous charges by the Heritage Foundation are plainly efforts to deflect the legitimate observations made by Democrats and other patriots about the Foundation’s own reprehensible activities. It’s the old “I’m rubber, you’re glue” defense strategy that they learned in kindergarten. Unfortunately for them, it isn’t going to work for one simple reason: The rest of the electorate has grown up and recognizes their immature and deceitful tactics.

Nearly 70% are More Worried About a President Who is a Liar than One Who is Old – Trump is Both

A new NPR/Marist National Poll was released two weeks after the Biden/Trump debate that has triggered so much pundit anxiety and politico consternation. The headline finding was that, despite what was widely panned in the press as disastrous for President Biden, he is now leading Donald Trump 50-48 percent.

Click here to Tweet this article

Donald Trump

That’s a remarkably favorable result under the circumstances. And it is an embarrassing repudiation to the doomsayers who have written off the President’s chances of prevailing in November. Many of those pessimists have been Democrats and media that have generally been more balanced and focused on real world analysis.

SEE THIS: WTF? According to the New York Times ‘Biden Should Leave the Race’ AND ‘Trump is Unfit to Lead’

However, the topline numbers in the poll were not the only good news for Biden and portent of peril for Trump. Notably, the survey found that…

“Americans are overwhelmingly more concerned about a president who plays fast and loose with the facts than someone who is too old to serve. Nearly seven in ten Americans (68%) think it is more concerning if a president does not tell the truth. Nearly one in three (32%) think it is more concerning if someone is too old to serve.”

This finding weighs heavily on Trump, the candidate who is known as both a pathological liar, and an elderly sufferer of severe cognitive disability. As for Biden, well, he’s just old. But Trump’s derangement manifests in utterly bizarre tirades that are completely detached from reality. Such as his oratories on the threats of sharks and batteries, windmill cancer, nuking hurricanes, George Washington’s Army taking over airports, and injecting bleach to cure COVID. And then are these comparatively minor, albeit frequent, verbal gaffes…

The poll also found that 64% of respondents “do not think Biden has the mental fitness to serve as president.” Which is not particularly good, but not unexpected considering the constant media harping on the issue. Conversely, the poll also found that 49% have the same concerns about Trump’s mental unfitness. And that’s without the same amount of media bias influencing those opinions. It’s just Trump craziness shining through.

What’s more, the poll showed that a majority (52%) of Americans believe that “Biden has the character to serve as president.” By contrast, an even bigger “majority of Americans (56%), including 18% of Republicans and 58% of independents, do not think Trump has the character to be President of the United States.”

These numbers paint a picture of a race that Biden should be leading by wide margins. Unfortunately, in today’s media environment, other factors come into play that warp the both the polling and the potential electoral outcome. Which means that Democrats cannot become complacent in the weeks and months ahead. They must remain motivated and energized in order to fend off the threat that Trump and his MAGA cult pose to democracy.

It also means that they must be flexible and able to quickly pivot if circumstances change. Although Biden is adamant that he will be the nominee to the end – and he surely has the ability to win – the odds of his stepping aside are greater than zero. Were that to happen, the same poll shows that every candidate tested (Kamala Harris, Gretchen Whitmer, and Gavin Newsom) did at least as well against Trump as Biden did.

So it’s safe to harbor some optimism as we face an unprecedented future this election year. And we must never let the nation forget the real choice before it…

President Biden: an honest, intelligent, and compassionate leader who reveres the Constitution.

Or Donald Trump: with 34 felony convictions, judgments against him for financial fraud, defamation and rape, and pending indictments that include inciting a violent coup and stealing classified documents, and conspiring to overturn an election, who seeks to impose an autocratic dictatorship.

That shouldn’t be a difficult choice.

WTF? According to the New York Times ‘Biden Should Leave the Race’ AND ‘Trump is Unfit to Lead’

One thing that is disturbingly clear at this critical time in America’s story is that the media is not serving the interests of the American people. In the midst of a presidential election that could determine whether the future of the nation will see its democracy preserved, or descends into a populist autocracy, the press is fixated on the horserace to the detriment of the human race.

As the election cycle unfolds, the arguments for and against the candidates seems to be an afterthought to the press. Their obsession with President Biden’s age has consumed the attention span of the reporters covering the campaign. Meanwhile, they are downplaying the existential threat that Donald Trump poses to the principles enshrined in the Constitution and even to national security.

As an example of the ideological instability that is infecting the media, the New York Times just published an article by their Editorial Board that declares that “Donald Trump is unfit to lead.” The problem is that this article follows by a mere two weeks one by the same Board that asserted that “To serve his country, President Biden should leave the race.” So which is it? Or does the Times think that both candidates should drop out? And if one or the other doesn’t, then what?

What follows are a couple excerpts from each article…

June 28, To serve his country, President Biden should leave the race:
“President Biden has repeatedly and rightfully described the stakes in this November’s presidential election as nothing less than the future of American democracy.

Donald Trump has proved himself to be a significant jeopardy to that democracy — an erratic and self-interested figure unworthy of the public trust. He systematically attempted to undermine the integrity of elections. His supporters have described, publicly, a 2025 agenda that would give him the power to carry out the most extreme of his promises and threats. If he is returned to office, he has vowed to be a different kind of president, unrestrained by the checks on power built into the American political system.” […]

“Mr. Biden has been an admirable president. Under his leadership, the nation has prospered and begun to address a range of long-term challenges, and the wounds ripped open by Mr. Trump have begun to heal. But the greatest public service Mr. Biden can now perform is to announce that he will not continue to run for re-election.” […]

“If the race comes down to a choice between Mr. Trump and Mr. Biden, the sitting president would be this board’s unequivocal pick. That is how much of a danger Mr. Trump poses.”

July 11, Donald Trump is unfit to lead
“Next week, for the third time in eight years, Donald Trump will be nominated as the Republican Party’s candidate for president of the United States. A once great political party now serves the interests of one man, a man as demonstrably unsuited for the office of president as any to run in the long history of the Republic, a man whose values, temperament, ideas and language are directly opposed to so much of what has made this country great.” […]

“Mr. Trump has shown a character unworthy of the responsibilities of the presidency. He has demonstrated an utter lack of respect for the Constitution, the rule of law and the American people. Instead of a cogent vision for the country’s future, Mr. Trump is animated by a thirst for political power: to use the levers of government to advance his interests, satisfy his impulses and exact retribution against those who he thinks have wronged him.”

A fair reading of these articles would lead the reader to the conclusion that the Board regards Trump as a threat to democracy and the welfare of the nation and the world. But why did the Times choose to publish both articles, giving equal weight to the argument that Biden, while preferable, is just as unfit to occupy the office of the president? It’s a serious disservice to the readers and the nation to provide justifications to withhold support from Biden, who the Times believes would save democracy.

The Times could have published just the article criticizing Trump and included their reservations about Biden in a couple of paragraphs near the end. That would have been a better representation of their opinions, without giving ammunition to Trump supporters. After all, the Times is essentially saying that Biden’s faults are mainly political viability, while Trump’s would lead to actual catastrophe.

Furthermore, the Times could have gone into more detail about why Trump is unacceptable as a candidate. They didn’t mention Trump’s 34 felony convictions related to covering up hush money payments to a porn star; his civil liability for defamation and rape; his $354 million judgment for financial fraud; his theft of hundreds of classified documents about which he lied to the FBI; or his inciting a violent insurrection.

These are not times to be timid or to cling to false notions of balance. It’s okay to speculate about whether Biden presents the best opportunity to defeat Trump. It is not okay to place Biden’s comparatively minor deficiencies on the same level as Trump’s sociopathy that ranges from incompetent to traitorous. And the Times knows better. Or at least they used to.

U.S. Intelligence Warns that Russia is Actively Undermining Biden to Boost Putin’s Puppet Trump

The frantic frenzy in the media for the past couple weeks over whether President Biden should continue his candidacy for the White House has taken on biblical proportions. It’s as if he had eaten an apple from the Tree of Knowledge and is now facing efforts to cast him out of Eden. When will they ask about Donald Trump eating the Big Mac of Madness and his eviction from Realityland?

Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin

The non-stop inquisition of Biden, and any stray Democrat that the press encounters, has become a compulsive disorder that the press can’t seem to exercise any self-control over. Meanwhile, there is nothing remotely equivalent being done to Trump, who is suffering from mental maladies that threaten far worse consequences for the nation and the world should he reoccupy the White House.

Compounding the risks posed by a Trump reprise is a new report that U.S. Intelligence agencies have identified Russian operations aimed at influencing American elections and, specifically, backing Trump’s bid to assume the throne to which he believes he is entitled. As reported by NBC News

“Russia’s efforts to influence this year’s U.S. election through information warfare have the same aim as in previous elections — to undermine President Joe Biden’s campaign and the Democratic Party and weaken public confidence in the electoral process, intelligence officials said Tuesday.

“Russia’s election influence operations, which include covert social media accounts and encrypted direct messaging channels, are targeting key voter groups in swing states to exploit political divisions in the U.S. and erode support for Ukraine in the aftermath of Russia’s invasion, officials with the Office of the Director National Intelligence, or ODNI, told reporters.” […]

“Former U.S. intelligence officials and regional analysts say the Kremlin has long viewed Trump as more sympathetic to Russia, citing his frequently expressed skepticism toward the NATO alliance, his reluctance to criticize Putin and his critical portrayal of Ukraine’s government.”

Sound familiar? It’s precisely what Russia tried to do in 2020, and did successfully in 2016. It’s what Trump has referred to in his psychotic rants as the “Russia, Russia, Russia hoax.” However, it was never a hoax, and Trump knows it. He has even explicitly sought Russia’s help to hack Hillary Clinton’s email, and to spread disinformation throughout the country.

Trump’s affinity for Putin is well documented. He calls him a friend and a “genius” and has excused his crimes against humanity, saying that the United States does the same things. Trump will never criticize Putin for anything. But he constantly maligns America in the most abhorrent terms (e.g. corrupt, crime-ridden, weak, failing, etc.).

An example of that occurred Wednesday morning during an interview with Fox News wherein Trump was asked a question about Putin’s missiles targeting a children’s hospital in Ukraine. Trump replied by ignoring Putin’s atrocity and, instead, attacking Biden. Because America is always wrong and Putin is always right, in Trump’s twisted mind.

So it’s extraordinarily disturbing that the media is so fixated on whether Biden should remain in the race. Yet they never ask that question of Trump. If the debate were rationally formed it would be a contest between the elderly statesman Biden, or the elderly, convicted felon, Putin loving, wannabe dictator Trump. Under those conditions, which one ought to be driven from the race? It’s not a difficult choice.
