The daily schedule of alleged president Donald Trump is typically a short list of non-presidential activities such as as golfing, tweeting, watching Fox News, and headlining cult rallies filled with lies and hatred for his perceived political foes. And as of late Trump has taken a keen new interest in election punditry with his unique analyses littering his Twitter feed.
In recent weeks Trump has posted repeated commentaries on the progress of the Democratic primary season. He is mostly expressing a bizarre and obviously disingenuous concern that Bernie Sanders is being treated poorly by a party that is rigging the primaries against him. In addition to that Trump frequently opines on how his recent tribulations with impeachment have actually benefited him and his Republican cohorts. But on Monday morning, Trump contributed what may be his most accurate prediction for the Democratic campaign yet:
Because of how badly they did with the Impeachment Hoax, AOC will primary Cryin’ Chuck Schumer, and win, and Jerry Nadler has a good chance of losing to his far left primary opponent! It is all getting quite interesting. Pelosi will lose the House, AGAIN! My poll numbers great.

To be clear, the accuracy of this tweet is not that either Sen. Chuck Schumer or Rep. Jerrold Nadler are at risk for being defeated. They are both expected to have overwhelming victories in both their primaries and in the general election. And every poll indicates that Nancy Pelosi will retain her position as House Speaker, and even pick up additional seats. The smart money is betting on Democrats assuming the majority in the Senate as well. So Schumer is well positioned to topple Mitch McConnell as Majority Leader.
However, what Trump may not have noticed about his prediction is that he is asserting that the nation is becoming even more progressive and, therefore, more anti-Trump. That’s the only plausible conclusion from his assertion that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could take Schumer’s Senate seat and win statewide. Likewise, Trump’s opinion that a candidate to Nadler’s left would enjoy a victory in New York’s 10th district suggests that being farther to the left is an asset. So Trump is essentially saying that the farther a candidate is from Trump, the better their prospects for victory. I can’t say that I disagree with that.
To validate that point, Quinnipiac University released a new poll that has decidedly terrible news for Trump. They report that his “favorability rating is underwater, as 42 percent of registered voters have a favorable opinion of him, while 55 percent have an unfavorable view of him.” This doesn’t exactly affirm his delusional belief that being impeached increased his popularity or his chances of being reelected. On the latter point, Trump is shown in this poll to be trailing every one of his top Democratic opponents. According to Quinnipiac:
- Bloomberg tops Trump 51 – 42 percent;
- Sanders defeats Trump 51 – 43 percent;
- Biden beats Trump 50 – 43 percent;
- Klobuchar defeats Trump 49 – 43 percent;
- Warren wins narrowly over Trump 48 – 44 percent;
- Buttigieg is also slightly ahead of Trump 47 – 43 percent.
In addition to his electoral woes, America is convinced that Trump is a criminal who got away with his crimes with the help of his Republican accomplices in the Senate. The poll shows that “Despite the acquittal, voters say 55 – 40 percent that the Senate voting to acquit President Trump does not clear him of any wrongdoing in the Ukraine matter.” What’s more, “Voters say 59 – 35 percent that the Senate impeachment trial was conducted unfairly.”
If this is what Trump means when he says that “My poll numbers look great,” he is as mentally unstable as ever. Perhaps more so. He recently exhibited a severe case of paranoia by lashing out at enemies that he sees everywhere, saying that “I View Everybody as a Threat.” And he has embarked on a totalitarian style purge of his administration, including his own appointees. So it isn’t just America that is more anti-Trump. In his diseased mind, it’s even his own White House.

Why did Republicans do this to America? Maybe Russia has kompramat on all of them. If not it makes no sense. Their choice, Trumpf (R), continues to shaft our Nation with his vindictive petulant attacks. He is stealing from America daily with Violations of the entire Trumpf (R) family., and overcharging the Secret Service we pay to protect him. $3.4 million just on the last Golf Personal Enrichment Tour. He did choose to mock the National Anthem with gestations, refusing to stand still, or to put his damned short fingered hand over his heart, as most in the room hand their wrong hands on the their chests. It was extremely disrespectful of our Flag, our Anthem, and the United States. He willingly does the work for Vladimir Putin by creating divisiveness in America. Putin smirks as Trumpf (R) shirks. He is cutting Social Security, Medicare, Veterans benefits, the Military housing catastrophe repairs, and spitting on our Nation.
I too, wonder why the entire GOP has turned against their own Country & people therein? Certainly, when they defend Trump over America, they are loyal to him, BUT traitors to the USA & all good Americans. They are also betraying all trust & their Oath of office! For what?? What could matter more than – well, everything else? Before Trump got elected, most GOP knew him for what he is (ignorant, big ego, full of himself, a fraud & a failure) & they didn’t like him. They said so publicly. So what changed? Not Trump! Unless even worse counts.
2 things are all I think could’ve turned them all into Trump-sucking “things”….money & power. Choice to have it all, or have none at all.
Thanks to all that “Citizens United” – a total opposite of truth – has spawned, in that terrible SCOTUS decision, the insane amounts of money poisoning politics to death is in Party hands & “super PACS”. So much money to spend means gobs of money infecting all politics! The only ones NOT allowed to collect unlimited finds are actual candidates. Instead, they have to kiss butt to the groups with the gobs of money from super-rich donors. Their opposition, or they, will be backed by that money. That 1 ruling was the death knell for American politics!
Now, a small # of groups hold all the big bucks for campaigns. Huge donors are secret, unlike small donors to campaigns.
Too much power!!
Imagine the power hiding behind the Trump throne – you don’t really think he’s in charge do you? Those are very powerful men & if they tell you to back Trump 100%, you’d better do so if want to stay in power! Sell out your values, morals, indeed, your very soul, to stay in powerful positions (like Senate).
That’s the basics behind what I think is/has been happening here. Also, how everything seems to “run itself” with a president who knows nothing, does not read or understand briefings & spends 95% of his time NOT doing presidential work, at all. That’s when he’s even at White House.
Now tho, I will need to think harder about Russia/Putin & what kind of power he may be holding over members of GOP!? We KNOW he owns Trump. Who else has he got control over? Blackmail a distinct possibility.
Who wrote this anonomus bs…
Dear Mark: A challenge laid at your doorstep by Seanny the A$$whole Hypocrite, Cowardly Manatee, Imbecilic Pathological Liar, and Buttlicking Tyrant Worshiper, who STILL hasn’t gotten his lumpy butt waterboarded for charity like he promised 10 years, 9 months, 20 days ago. And, yes, Seanny, we ARE still counting.
Sean Hannity’s challenge: “Tell me one thing that I have said that’s false”
We can start with Seanny’s recent statement that his show is doing well because “we tell the truth”!
Then, always remember this:
Torture fan Sean Hannity still hasn’t been waterboarded like he promised
Yeah, it’s sad that the ENTIRE gop is afraid of a d**n “game show” host, and NOT even the good/RIGHT kind of game show. Some bulls*it, fake a*s “reality” game show. They DESERVE to be s*it on for being cowards.
