Trump Says All Presidents Must Have ‘Total Immunity’ from Crimes – Except for President Biden

Next week jury selection will begin for the first criminal trial of Donald Trump. In fact, it’s the first criminal trial of any former American president. Trump is outraged because, as he incessantly whines, “Nothing like this has ever happened before.” But that’s only because there hasn’t been any other persistently profligate perpetrator of crimes like Trump before.

The peculiar thing about Trump’s legal misadventures is that his defense rarely involves providing arguments that he is innocent. More often than not he defends himself by asserting that it is improper to accuse him of anything because he has the imaginary security blanket of “presidential immunity” that frees him from any consequences for any crimes he feels like committing. Nothing like that exists in the law, but he clings to it desperately.

SEE THIS: Felonious Punk Trump Demands ‘TOTAL IMMUNITY’ – Even for Acts that ‘CROSS THE LINE’

On Wednesday Trump took to his failing social media scam, Truth Social, to unleash his intensifying trepidation of being convicted for any number of the 88 felony charges he has currently pending. He posted a couple of fear-drenched videos on the subject of immunity that illustrate just how addled and irrational he is. The first began…

“If a President doesn’t have immunity, he or she will be nothing more than a ceremonial president, rarely having the courage to do what has to be done for our country and to make our country great again. This is not what our Founders had in mind at all. This is not what they wanted to think about. This not where they wanted us to be. The founders wanted the president to have immunity so the president can feel free to make decisions. Hopefully they’ll be great decisions. But whether they are or not, a president of the United States has to have immunity.”

Trump is apparently unaware that every president prior to him was not hampered in the least in their decision making by this made up obstacle. And he doesn’t bother to provide any evidence that the Founders were worried about it either. It’s a weak concept that he made up – or more likely one of his sleazy attorneys made up – to get him off the hook. However, about an hour and a half later, Trump posted another video that completely contradicted the first one…

“At what point are the actions of a sitting president, using lawfare and weaponization against his opponent for purposes of election interference, considered illegal? I believe, as do various highly respected legal scholars, that “crooked” Joe Biden has long since crossed over that very sacred threshold. He is a criminal. He is a horrible president. He is the worst president in the history of the country. And the only way he thinks he can get elected is to take me to trial, take me to court, city, state, and federal. They control them all. All of these cases you read about are “crooked” Joe Biden’s case because he can’t put two sentences together. He can’t do anything. So they weaponize government and they take me to court on bullsh*t. So we are going to win. We are going to win big. We’re gonna go through these horrible Biden trials. And the end of the day, November 5th, everyone’s coming out to vote for Trump.”

So according to Trump, all presidents must have total immunity. Except, of course, for President Biden, who Trump claims is acting illegally, even though he previously insisted that that isn’t possible for a president. Trump went on to smear Biden saying that “He is a criminal. He is a horrible president. He is the worst president in the history of the country.” In Trump’s twisted mind his opponents can never be merely wrong or have a different opinion. They are always the worst of all time of whatever he is accusing them of.

What’s more, Trump disgorges his tiresome and baseless lies that Biden is an evil genius who controls every lever of power, city, state, and federal, despite being unable to “put two sentences together.”

Trump closes by dismissing the charges against him with a bit of profanity that his glassy-eyed cult followers love so much. Then he expresses confidence that he will ultimately prevail simply by the virtue of his god-given superpowers. Once again, he doesn’t offer any coherent defense via innocence.

A little while later, Trump posted a comment that elaborated on his assault on the judicial public servants he believes are tormenting him…

“Crooked Joe Biden and his crew of Hacks and Thugs, led by Merrick Garland and Deranged Jack Smith, are working overtime to try to illegally intimidate and harass respected Federal Judge Aileen Cannon. They are calling her terrible names.”

It was thoughtful of Trump to praise Judge Cannon, the obviously biased Trump toady who is doing everything she can to shield Trump from accountability. And there is a perverse irony in his complaint that some unnamed persons have been “calling her terrible names.” How dare they? He’s probably upset because that’s his thing. Anyone else throwing around Trump-style infantile insults is stealing his identity and infringing on his anti-intellectual property. Not that anyone is actually doing that – or would want to. It’s just another outlet for his obnoxious animosity.

Eric Trump Tells Fox News that Daddy Trump is Making Millions of Dollars Off His Court Cases

From the day that Donald Trump rode down his golden escalator in Trump Tower to announce his ambition to occupy the White House, he has endeavored to profit personally from the presidency and the political, business, and diplomatic favors he would be able to sell, even to hostile foreign governments.

Trump Baby on Cash Pile

Trump spent his term in office pandering to the likes of Vladimir Putin of Russia, and Muhammad bin Salmon of Saudi Arabia, in order to rake in cash to prop up his failing real estate enterprise. And he spent his years after being evicted from the White House fleecing his flock of cult followers with flagrant lies about “rigged and stolen” elections and whining about being justly prosecuted for his multitude of crimes.

SEE THIS: Trump Casts Himself as ‘a Modern Day Nelson Mandela’ While Lashing Out at All of His Judges

Virtually everything Trump does is an appeal for funds. That’s because he desperately needs the money pay lawyers and spokesmodels (sometimes the same person) in a futile effort to avoid conviction for crimes ranging from financial fraud to election interference to violations of the Espionage Act. Consequently, he has resorted to hawking cheesy merchandise such as gold sneakers and a Trump-endorsed bible.

SEE ALSO: Rev. Trump is Peddling His ‘God Bless the USA Bible’ to Pay His Judgments for Fraud and Rape

On Wednesday morning Trump spawn Eric was interviewed on Fox News by Brian Kilmeade, co-host of Fox and Friends. During the segment Eric let slip a bit of the truth about his father’s compulsive greed…

Kilmeade: For six to eight weeks, he [Donald Trump] could be stuck in a New York courtroom. That’s Monday through Thursday, eight to 10 hours a day. How do you overcome that? What’s the plan to overcome it? It’s not gonna be a surprise.
Trump: Every single time he walks into a courtroom, millions and millions of dollars flow in because the American people know exactly what’s happening to him. And you have a judge who has a family member who literally profits off of these cases. She was making millions and millions off of these cases. Whose Twitter profile is literally my father behind bars, and that’s what New York has become.”

So according to Mr. Eric, Daddy Morebucks is profiting bigly from his misadventures in the judicial system. That shouldn’t surprise anyone. Trump has been shamelessly and repeatedly begging for donations from his cult to rescue him from the reaches of the law. He’s pretending that it’s all a huge conspiracy to destroy him. For instance, on the same morning as this interview, Trump posted a comment on his failing social media scam, Truth Social, bemoaning the dreadfulness of his pathetic life, saying that…

“The White House Thugs should not be allowed to have these dangerous and unfair Biden Trials during my campaign for President. […] On Monday I will be forced to sit, GAGGED, before a HIGHLY CONFLICTED & CORRUPT JUDGE, whose hatred for me has no bounds.

Poor thing. What’s surprising is that Eric is admitting on national television that Daddy Trump’s plaintive wailing about being allegedly persecuted are bullcrap. He isn’t really seething with the anger that he pretends to have. He’s actually thrilled with the wealth that it’s generating. Eric makes that clear by answering the question as to how Trump will “overcome” being “stuck in a courtroom” by replying that it isn’t a burden that needs to be “overcome” at all. It’s a strategy that he’s pursuing.

In addition to that revelation from Eric, he also blatantly lies that the judge and his daughter are “making millions and millions off of these cases.” They are not, and he doesn’t even bother to provide any hint of proof of slanderous accusation. He also accuses the judge’s daughter of posting a picture of him behind bars. That has also been proven to be false.

So the next time you hear Trump lamenting his fate, remember that, according to Eric, it’s really just another grift by the Trump Crime Family. And the only reason he is running at all is to cash in financially, and to stay out of prison.

Trump Has a Manic Meltdown Over His Sycophant Lindsey Graham Disagreeing with Him on Abortion

On Monday Donald Trump delivered what he claimed was his official position on abortion. But his five minute video was more a display of cowardice than anything else as he whined and waffled, attempting to walk a fine line wherein he wouldn’t offend anyone who might disagree with whatever stance he was pretending take.

Donald Trump, Lindsey Graham

Needless to say, Trump ended up offending everyone. His right-wing supporters were appalled that he didn’t take a stronger position on banning all abortions. Independents were disgusted by his craven weakness as he sought to avoid controversy by leaving the matter of human rights up to the individual states. And the majority of Americans, who support reproductive freedom, recognized his speech as offering the same old lies he has spewed for years.

SEE THIS: Fox News Hack Joins the Trump Cult Choir Proclaiming that ‘We’ve Always Seen Honesty with Trump’

In his video, Trump bragged that he was responsible for the overturning of Roe vs Wade. Then he lied that “all legal experts” wanted the Supreme Court to overturn the 50 year old precedent. He lied about Democrats supporting abortion after birth. He lied about his own backing of abortion bans, which he supports in states that have already passed bills imposing them. In short, Trump did what he always does – LIES!

Among those finding fault with Trump’s abortion decree was his faithful, slobbering sycophant, Lindsey Graham. Graham posted a comment on Twitter that took issue with Trump’s failure to stake an actual position. “I respectfully disagree with President Trump’s statement that abortion is a states’ rights issue,” Graham began. He added that “I will continue to advocate that there should be a national minimum standard limiting abortion.”

Well, that was enough to trigger another petulant Trump temper tantrum. He posted at least six rage-fueled comments on his floundering social media scam, Truth Social, blasting Graham for having the audacity to disagree with him, even marginally. Trump ranted that

“Senator Lindsey Graham should spend more time focusing on all of the many people being killed because of our now non-existent Border, and the millions of people dying in senseless, never-ending Wars that he constantly favors and promotes, and should spend less time on taking away our Great Roe v. Wade Victory of sending a complicated and controversial Issue back to the States where, according to Highly Respected Legal Scholars on both sides, it belongs. The Democrats are thrilled with Lindsey.”

And that

“Lindsey Graham and Marjorie Dannenfelser of Susan B. Anthony that were “hardliners”, one day after the Victory, were gone and of absolutely no help.” […] “We cannot let our Country suffer any further damage by losing Elections on an issue that should always have been decided by the States, and now will be!”

And that

“Senator Lindsey Graham is doing a great disservice to the Republican Party, and to our Country.” […] “Many Good Republicans lost Elections because of this Issue, and people like Lindsey Graham, that are unrelenting, are handing Democrats their dream of the House, Senate, and perhaps even the Presidency.”

And that

“I blame myself for Lindsey Graham, because the only reason he won in the Great State of South Carolina is because I Endorsed him!”

And that

“Senator Lindsey Graham and Marjorie Dannenfelser should study the 10th Amendment and States’ Rights. When they do, they should proudly get on with helping Republicans to WIN ELECTIONS, rather than making it impossible for them to do so!”

And that

“Lindsey Graham, started saying, ‘No, let’s go back to the Federal Government with 0 weeks.'”

It’s surprising that Trump actually accepted the blame for something for once. But more to the point, note that the common thread in all of these attacks is Trump’s concern that support for abortion bans will harm the electoral prospects of Trump and other Republicans. He’s actually right about that. In recent elections, voters have punished Republicans for failing to support women’s rights and health. But trump’s decision to put politics over principles is repulsive. Although it is consistent with the self-serving amorality of the Republican Party.

Also notable is that no one is ever served by supporting Donald Trump. He has no sense of loyalty to anyone but himself. There is no one in MAGA world who has been more pathetically subservient to Trump than Graham. It’s almost as if Trump has evidence of some sort of heinous crime that he is blackmailing Graham with. Or perhaps Graham is just under the spell of Trump’s wicked sorcery.

But despite Graham’s groveling, Trump still demonstrates that even a consummate bootlicker like Graham will be ruthlessly trashed for daring to have an opinion of his own. And that ought to be the lesson that all Trump supporters take away from this affair. Kowtow at your own risk. But recognize that you’re in a cult and Dear Leader Trump is your master.

YEAH RIGHT! Sean Hannity Thinks He Can Convince Democrats to Ditch Biden and Vote for RFK Jr

The campaign of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has been a bad joke from the start. He began seeking the nomination of the Democratic Party in a futile challenge to President Joe Biden. Recognizing the failure of that effort, he ditched the party and declared himself an independent.

Click here to Tweet this article

Fox News, Sean Hannity, Joe Biden

Kennedy is hardly independent. He was recruited to run by Trump whisperer, Steve Bannon. His biggest donor also happens to be Trump’s biggest donor. He proudly poses for pictures with the likes of Russian asset Mike Flynn, and GOP dirty trickster Roger Stone, who are both longtime Trump flunkies. And he has been promoted regularly on Fox News.

SEE THIS: Fox and Friends Slobber Over RFK Jr and Mock Democrats for Repudiating Him as a Republican Rat

In a flagrant dismissal of reality, Thursday night’s episode of Sean Hannity’s Fox News program featured Hannity giving a preposterous campaign speech aimed at converting Democrats from Biden supporters to Kennedy. You have to wonder who Hannity thinks he was preaching to. It’s not as if there are any Democrats watching his show or looking to him for advice on who to vote for. Nevertheless, Hannity spewed the following pro-Kennedy nonsense (with relevant annotations)…

“If you are a left-wing voter, Kennedy frankly gives you all the nutty Biden, Bernie Sanders, Green New Deal, climate denial, religious cult policies…”
[Hannity apparently thinks that he can be more persuasive by insulting the people he’s trying to persuade]

“…maybe without the corruption and sleaze and chaos, and he definitely knows what day of the week it is. Gotta give him credit for that. Let’s not forget, at just 70 years of age RFK Jr. is more than a decade younger than Joe Biden, and he’s more with it.”
[There is zero evidence any corruption by Biden. And Hannity’s attacks on Biden’s mental acuity are unfounded and tiresome. What’s more, Trump is also about a decade older than Kennedy, with real cognitive defects]

“He also supports affirmative action. He cut ads for the likes of Al Gore. He supported Hillary Clinton. He supported Obama. He supported every Democratic presidential candidate there is. So, for conservatives that maybe like his position on COVID, OK. Now take a look at the rest of the record. We’re only giving you fact-based information here.”
[Here is where Hannity gets to his real point. He isn’t really trying to persuade Biden voters (who aren’t watching his show) to vote for Kennedy. He’s trying to persuade Trump voters (his viewers) not to]

All told, Kennedy would be a much better alternate choice for Trump voters. He would fit right in with them because, for much of his political life, he has been a confirmed conspiracy theory crackpot. His unsavory associations with ultra right-wingers are anathema to Democratic principles. The GOP has adopted him as one of their own, and he is now the MAGA Republican Party’s favorite anti-Democratic stooge.

To anyone with open eyes and functional brain cells, it’s clear that Kennedy is a Republican stalking horse for Biden, if not an outright plant. And if you need any further evidence of Kennedy’s tight relationship with conservatives, check out this article from Mother Jones: “RFK Jr. Fundraisers Tied to J6ers, QAnoners, Christian Nationalists, and Far-Right Extremists.” That isn’t exactly a Democratic resume, is it?

THANKS DON: Trump’s Bashing of Mail-In Voting Has Created an Enduring Advantage for Democrats

Donald Trump has been especially upset lately over the criminal trials that he is subject to as a result of his compulsive misconduct and disrespect for the law. For the most part his outrage is expressed in pitiful whining that he is the victim of corrupt and/or biased prosecutors and judges who are engaging in “election interference.”

Click here to Tweet this article

Donald Trump, Vote By Mail

To be clear, what Trump regards as election interference is merely that he is finally being held accountable for his many crimes – at least 88 felony charges so far. And that’s not counting the defamation and rape, and financial fraud civil lawsuits that he has already lost, and for which he has had to post a quarter of a billion dollars in appeal bonds. Needless to say, that has triggered another Trump tantrum…

SEE THIS: Trump Attacks Judge’s Daughter in Wild, Whiny, Rambling Rant, After Gag Order Was Issued

In light of Trump’s conviction that “OUR ELECTIONS ARE CORRUPT” (as he posted Tuesday morning), this would be a good time to reexamine Trump’s ideas for ensuring fair and secure elections. For years he has insisted that early voting and mail-in voting are irreparably contaminated by fraud and must be terminated. However, that position is creating some serious problems for the republican Party that he is supposed to be the leader of. NBC News is reporting that…

“National Republicans are attempting a shift to embrace mail-in and early voting to match what’s been a Democratic advantage in recent years.

“But interviews with nearly 20 Republican officials and voters across the country say there is lingering, and sometimes fierce, resistance to the idea — from Trump on down. The schism signals potential peril for the party in the fall if it once again fails to match Democrats’ on-the-ground ballot organization.

“It starts at the top. As the leader of the Republican Party, Trump has used his position to blast, without evidence, mail-in voting as a Trojan horse for widespread voter fraud. In the process, the former president has eroded trust in a method that was once widely embraced by many people in his party, putting Republicans at a disadvantage against Democrats.”

Indeed, Trump’s anti-mail-in voting obsession is making it harder for the GOP to bank votes in advance of an election. That results in lower turnout and higher campaign costs attempting to reach voters on election day and get them out to the polls. As GOP officials try to encourage early voting, Trump’s glassy-eyed cult disciples refuse to engage in a practice that their Dear Leader has instructed them is infected with nasty, democratic corruption.

Among the GOP officials encountering this obstacle is Trump’s daughter-in-lawlessness, Lara Trump, who he recently installed as co-chair of the Republican National Committee (RNC). Lara herself has been busy alienating her fellow Republicans. And she recently told the CPAC crowd that…

“If we want to compete with the Democrats, we cannot wait until Election Day. If we want to compete and win, we must embrace early voting. The days of waiting until Election Day to vote are over.”

Too bad her Sugardaddy-in-Law doesn’t agree with her. As recently as February Trump has been making the rounds of MAGA TV to warn his supporters to refrain from early and mail-voting.

“Mail in voting is totally corrupt. Get that through your head. It has to be. The votes. I mean, it has to be.” […And…] “If you have mail-in voting you automatically have fraud.”

Trump, of course, has good reason (in his warped mind) to oppose mail-in voting. And he isn’t afraid to reveal it to the world. Just to make sure that there wasn’t any confusion, Trump laid out specifically what the problem is with it.

“Any effort to dictate national Mail-In Voting will be a disaster for our Country and for conservatism. There will never be a Republican elected to high office again.”

And there you have it. However, what Trump seems oblivious to is that what he regards as a warning is likely to be viewed with delight by most Americans. The prospect that “There will never be a Republican elected to high office again,” is really more of a reward than a threat. So as for early and mail-in voting – bring it on. And let the Trumpies honor their hero by staying home and not succumbing to the corruption of American democracy.

Trump Sends His Easter Greetings to ‘Those Many People that I Completely and Totally Despise’

One of the best indicators of the malignant narcissism of Donald Trump is his consistent practice of making any and every holiday an opportunity to exalt himself. He does it on Christmas, and New Year’s, and Thanksgiving, and even on the Fourth of July.

Click here to Tweet this article

Flaming Trump

Of course, Trump can’t let any day go by without grasping for attention by lavishing praise on himself and/or scorn on his enemies. Buy he’s even more consumed with his own glorification on holidays that are observed by others. Heaven forbid that any day of remembrance be wasted remembering someone other than Trump.

FOR INSTANCE: Trump’s Craven Christmas Prayer for Presidential Immunity and an End to Yuletide Witch Hunts

On this Easter Sunday Trump has once again demonstrated his messianic delusions in a post on his floundering social media scam, Truth Social. As usual, it was a long, rambling, tirade that threw in every pet peeve that he has been harboring for years. And all of it wrapped up in what he regards as a holiday greeting. He began…

“HAPPY EASTER TO ALL, INCLUDING CROOKED AND CORRUPT PROSECUTORS AND JUDGES THAT ARE DOING EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO INTERFERE WITH THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION OF 2024, AND PUT ME IN PRISON, INCLUDING THOSE MANY PEOPLE THAT I COMPLETELY & TOTALLY DESPISE BECAUSE THEY WANT TO DESTROY AMERICA, A NOW FAILING NATION…”

Let’s pause to take a breath here. This is another example of Trump making everything about himself. Notice that Trump did not address his Easter greeting to any observant Christians who are celebrating the resurrection of their savior. True to form, Trump is filled with anger and hatred, resulting in his message being directed solely to those upon whom he seeks those famously Christ-like traits of retribution and revenge. And naturally, he denigrates America simply because its citizens have not embraced him as their deity.

Trump went on to single out as “SICK” and “EVIL” special prosecutor Jack Smith, Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis, and New York D.A. Alvin Bragg. In his haste to post his contemptuous screed he forget to include New York Attorney General, Letitia James. But he didn’t leave out President Biden in a reference to “CROOKED JOE’S DOJ THUGS.”

This post came after more than 70 other posts on Easter morning. So even though his Easter greeting was mired in malice, it still didn’t have any priority over dozens of other posts such as his attack on Judge Merchan’s daughter, and his link to an article (in the Moonie Washington Times) comparing him to Christ titled “The Crucifixion of Donald Trump.”

What’s more, Trump posted comments lambasting Biden for a couple of phony outrages that were being spread by right-wing media. Such as…

  • The White House Easter Egg contest that restricted the use of religious symbols on the eggs. Never mind that those rules have been in effect for 45 years, including during the Trump years.
  • The wingnut uproar over the declaration of “Transgender Day of Visibility.” Once again, that was an event that has been recognized for since 2010, including while Trump occupied the White House.

And yet, the glassy-eyed disciples of the Trump cult remain transfixed by the rapist and blasphemous bible salesman with 88 felony charges pending, as their divine, albeit autocratic, redeemer. And Happy Easter to all those who continue to pledge their devotion and intention to follow Trump, straight into the pits of Hades if he so demands.

Fox News Touts Their Own Poll that Reveals How Delusional Republicans Are About the Economy

The 2024 presidential election season is heating up as both candidates exert their best efforts to draw voters to their cause. Which for President Biden means campaigning vigorously in every swing state and advancing initiatives that benefit all Americans. For Donald Trump it means dining with rich pals at Mar-a-Lago, golfing, and sitting in courtrooms scowling and whining.

Click here to Tweet this article

Fox News, Fake News

The media’s horserace coverage of the campaign is predictably useless as they focus almost entirely on polls, while ignoring the substantive actions taken by the candidates. For instance, Biden is building national infrastructure, creating jobs, and protecting healthcare, including women’s reproductive rights. Trump, on the other hand, is pledging to cut Social Security, promising to release all of the violent January 6th insurrectionists, and doing infomercials for Trump-endorsed bibles.

SEE THIS: Rev. Trump is Peddling His ‘God Bless the USA Bible’ to Pay His Judgments for Fraud and Rape

Trump’s Ministry of Propaganda, Fox News, is playing its staunchly Republican part in this political potboiler. They just released a poll that shows Trump leading Biden 50-45%, within the margin of error. And Fox’s Harris Faulkner thinks that she knows why Trump is enjoying a small lead.

“A new round of Fox News polling shows former president Trump widening his lead over President Biden. One big reason? The economy. Fifty-two percent of voters say they’re worse off financially today than they were in 2020, just before Biden took office.”

Faulkner appears to be oblivious to the fact that four years ago the nation was locked up in their homes, terrified of a deadly virus, losing their jobs as companies closed, and unable to find toilet paper or other household goods at the grocery stores. And The Republican respondents to the poll also seem to be suffering from the same selective amnesia.

Digging a little deeper, the poll found that among Democrats only 28% said they are worse of today than four years ago. However, it also found that 72% of Republicans consider themselves worse off now. That’s a disparity that makes no sense if it were actually tied to real world economic conditions. So the GOP respondents are either having memory lapses (a symptom of Long COVID) or they are lying to the pollsters for political reasons.

Another possibility is that Republicans actually are suffering more severe economic circumstances than Democrats because they live in states run by Republicans, where conditions are worse due to bad management and the insensitivity of GOP leaders to the real problems of their citizens. If that’s the case, then the Fox News poll is helpfully exposing the harm caused by electing Republicans.

It says something unmistakable that 72% of Democrats say they are the same or better off now, but only 27% of Republicans are saying that. Is that a problem caused by the President, or the GOP losers who are doing so poorly during a time of economic growth? Based on the results of this poll, who would you rather be now, a Democrat or a Republican? And based on your answer to that question, who would you rather vote for in November? And if you say “Republican,” you are validating the absurdity of the GOP responses in this poll. And what’s more, you deserve what you get.

Has Fox News Finally Figured it Out? ‘This is Why Conservatives Call the GOP the Stupid Party’

If it seems to you like every day Republicans in Congress do something new to humiliate themselves, while advancing their ultra-rightist smear campaigns against President Biden and other Democrats, and sucking up to their Dear Leader Donald Trump, then it’s clear that you are paying attention.

Click here to Tweet this article

Donald Trump, Republican, GOP

It’s almost as if the GOP is purposefully planning these embarrassing political pratfalls as their strategy for winning back the White House. What else could explain stunts like the one that Marjorie Taylor Greene just pulled by filing a motion to oust House Speaker Mike Johnson after only five months as Speaker? And recall that he got that post because Republicans ousted the previous Speaker, Kevin McCarthy, after only nine months.

SEE THIS: DO-NOTHING CONGRESS? The Republican House of Representatives is the Most Productive Ever (LOL)

The reaction to Green’s motion has been swift and hilarious. Most of her GOP colleagues have condemned her for reinforcing the accurate impression that the Republican Party is populated by idiots and is awash in chaos. But those condemning her are doing their own part in reinforcing that impression. They surely are not exhibiting the unity that Trump recently bragged about…

SEE ALSO: REALLY? Dementia Addled Trump Babbles that ‘I Have Never Seen the Republican Party So Unified’

And if that weren’t bad enough, Fox News isn’t taking any of this very well. It is presenting them with more obstacles to their propaganda mission of propping up Republicans and Trump-fluffing. That was glaringly evident in the monologue of Fox’s Laura Ingraham who whined that…

“I have been in Washington for 30 years. I have never witnessed what I’m witnessing now. A party with a narrow majority in the House of Representatives – everything on the line in the country – but committing a slow suicide. This is why conservatives call the GOP the stupid party.”

First of all, it isn’t conservatives calling the GOP “The Stupid Party” (which would make a great new name for them). It is mainstream Republicans and most Americans. If anything, it’s the conservatives like Greene and the GOP’s Freedom Caucus who are attacking Johnson, advocating extremist policies (i.e. banning abortion, cutting Social Security, etc.), and generally spreading around the stupid.

What’s more, Ingraham is complaining about the GOP being incapable of governing with their “narrow” and shrinking majority. But she is steadfastly against working with Democrats on compromise legislation such as funding the government, securing the border, or providing aid to Ukraine. She and her right-wing confederates have no positive solutions to the nation’s problems. Instead, they are laser focused on impeaching President Biden and maligning his family and Cabinet. It is that agenda that is causing their “slow suicide.”

However, Ingraham is not alone. Her Fox News comrade, and former Trump press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, joined the pile-on following Green’s Johnson-busting business. On Friday’s episode of Fox’s “Outnumbered” McEnany offered a uniquely perverse point of view…

“So, Marjorie Taylor Greene said ‘I have not talked to president Trump about this.’ Largely president Trump and Speaker Mike Johnson have had a great relationship. Speaker Mike Johnson just put out a piece congratulating him on securing the nomination. I think it’s a pretty big voice you would want to get input from since he’s the titular head of the party at the moment.”

What McEnany is proposing is that Trump be given the right of approval as to who Republicans in the House choose to lead their party. Never mind that the Constitution explicitly divides the government into three independent branches. McEnany would do away with the principle of “separation of powers” so that Trump could reign as a monarch, imposing his will on the legislative and judicial branches, in addition to the executive. Which, by the way, he does not currently occupy.

This is just further evidence that the Stupid Party is more of a cult than a political enterprise. And it’s Ministry of Propaganda (aka Fox News) is fully on board with elevating Dear Leader Trump to messiah status as they pray for him to be their savior. But if the abject foolishness of Republicans is regarded as the party having committed suicide, it is one that will benefit the nation and its citizens, So perhaps a more fitting description for the demise of the GOP is that it’s a mercy killing.

Trump’s Lawyer on Fox News Refuses to Rule Out Getting Russia to Pay His $454 Million Judgment

The trials and tribulations of Donald Trump continue to trigger his ultra-thin, spray-tanned skin. He is currently sweating out at least 88 felony charges on matters ranging from election interference, to stealing and hoarding classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago hotel/home. He’s already been been found civilly liable for defamation and sexual assault, and financial fraud.

With regard to the financial fraud affair, Trump was ordered to pay $454 million in penalties for deliberately misstating the value of his assets in order to fraudulently obtain more favorable terms for loans and tax obligations. Ever since then, Trump has been whining petulantly about being held accountable for his gross misconduct, for which he thinks he should have “total immunity.”

The nearly half billion dollars Trump now owes is weighing considerably on him financially and emotionally. He is complaining that he cannot come up with the money to pay the judgement, or a bond to guarantee it. Never mind that he and his attorneys have previously insisted that he has more than enough to cover the judgment. In a deposition he gave last year Trump claimed that “We have a lot of cash. Substantially in excess of $400 million in cash…and going up very substantially every month.”

That appears to be another Trump lie. In a comment posted to his floundering Truth Social scam, he is now declaring that the judgment is “impossible” for him pay. He called the judge a “Radical Left…true Trump Hater” and lied that “When I win the Appeal, all of that money is gone.” For the record, he is unlikely to win the appeal,, but even if he did, the money would then be returned to him.

Meanwhile, Trump’s parking lot lawyer, Alina Habba, was on Fox News again demonstrating her extraordinary ability to make things far worse for her client than prior to her babbling interview. In an exchange with Fox News host Marth MacCallum, Habba implicated Trump in some international intrigue…

MacCallum: Is there any effort on the part of your team to secure this money through another country, Saudi Arabia or Russia, as Joy Behar seems to think?”
Habba: Well, there’s rules and regulations that are public. I can’t speak about strategy, that requires certain things and we have to follow those rules. Like I said, this is manifest injustice. It is impossible — it is an impossibility. I believe they knew that…It’s the demise of our country, not the demise of Trump.

And there you have it. Habba could have easily denied that Trump would ever consider seeking funds from foreign dictators to satisfy his personal legal bills. But she didn’t. And the prospect of Trump keeping that option open makes him a grave threat to national security. He would be beholden to the likes of Vladimir Putin or Mohammed bin Salman.

Even before this revelation, it was apparent that Trump is threat to American democracy. He incited a violent insurrection in an attempt steal the 2020 election. He has yearned for the tyrannical powers of dictators like Putin, Xi Jinping, and Kim Jong Un. He pledges to persecute and imprison his political foes. He has said that he would “terminate” parts of the Constitution.

Trump even said explicitly – more than once – that he would rule as a dictator “on day one.” And anyone who believes that he would relinquish his dictatorship the next day is terminally naïve, or a MAGA cult disciple. Which is, of course, redundant. It would have made much more sense if that’s what Habba really had in mind when she warned about “the demise of our country.” But unfortunately, she is just as compromised and anti-American as Trump.

WTF? Trump Hypes CNN Report on His Pitiful Fundraising and Frantic Reliance on GOP Billionaires

The comments that Donald Trump posts on his dreadfully failing Truth Social scam are predominantly vicious attacks on his political foes and delusional exaltations of himself. It’s basically an online journal of a malignant narcissist compulsively whining and lying in desperate pursuit of attention.

Trump Baby on Cash Pile

On Wednesday morning, however, Trump may have exhausted his supply of self-reverential content. That could be because most of the news about him is profoundly negative. He continues to lose about 20% of Republican votes in GOP primaries where he has no opponents. He recently lost civil lawsuits that resulted in judgments against him for nearly half a billion dollars. And he is still battling some 88 felony criminal charges on multiple indictments in four jurisdictions. Yet somehow he still has the time to file his own laughably frivolous lawsuits…

In desperation, Trump posted a link to an article from CNN with the headline “Republican billionaires rally around Trump for April fundraiser as election – and scramble for cash – heats up.” Let’s set aside the peculiar aberration of Trump promoting content from the network that he regards as “failing” and “fake” news. The article itself was not particularly positive. To the contrary, it focused on his failures as a candidate. CNN reported that…

“Hedge fund founder John Paulson is hosting a high-dollar fundraiser next month to benefit Donald Trump’s presidential campaign that is drawing some of the Republican Party’s wealthiest donors, according to an invitation obtained by CNN.

The April 6 event, slated to be held in Palm Beach, Florida, is a sign that some ultra-rich GOP figures who remained on the sidelines during the primary season – or backed other candidates – are coalescing behind the former president, now that he is the party’s presumptive nominee and scrambles to catch up with President Joe Biden and Democrats in the funding race.”

So Trump apparently wanted his cult followers to know that his fundraising was seriously trailing that of President Biden, who raised a record $53 million in February, contributing to his total cash on hand of $155 million. The article also noted that the “high-dollar fundraiser” by the RNC (now co-chaired by his daughter-in-lawlessness, Lara Trump) is “aimed at helping him quickly raise large sums as he works to close the fundraising gap with Biden and Democrats.”

What’s more, the article reported that the admission price for the event ranged from $250,000 per person to $814,600 per person if you want to sit at the former reality TV game show host’s table. And those who continued reading would learn that the fundraiser was also financing a PAC that has been paying some of Trump’s legal bills. Donors who thought they were helping Trump and/or other Republicans get elected might be surprised to hear about that.

Furthermore, Trump’s promotion of the news that he’s begging actual billionaires (unlike himself) for big money bailouts isn’t exactly the sort of information that would endear him to the working-class rubes he has been fleecing for votes and small dollar donations. They might also be put off to learn that two Fox News hosts – Larry Kudlow and Mark Levin – have pleaded on air for wealthy Republicans to finance the half billion dollars in legal judgments (so far) that Trump has been ordered to pay.

Nevertheless, Trump is surely convinced that he won’t suffer any consequences from holding his red hat out to tycoons who later will undoubtedly call in favors should Trump reoccupy the White House. And he will obediently serve their interests, not those of the little people who Trump has always exploited and despised.

Finally, don’t be surprised if the fat cats who bankroll Trump include foreign oligarchs and representatives of Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping, and other dictators that Trump so admires. It’s just another way that he will be putting the democracy and sovereignty of America at risk if he is given the opportunity.
