After the American people resoundingly evicted Donald Trump from the White House, there might have been some hope that he and his cult followers would recede to the background for a while and let the American people bask in the luxury of what Fox News calls Joe Biden’s boredom. Especially after inciting riots in Washington that he still believes were populated by patriots who posed “zero threat.”.
Unfortunately, Trump appears to be as determined as ever to thrust his torrent of lies and self-serving propaganda down the throats of a weary nation. He couldn’t even wait until he launches his Alt-Twitter social media platform.
On the latest episode of Maria Bartiromo’s Sunday Morning Futures, the Senior Trump-fluffer on Fox News visited with Trump spawn Eric Trump, for a weekend worship service. It was a tedious segment of sermonizing and softballs. But most of all, it overflowed with falsehoods that bordered on delusion (video below).
Bartiromo led off by criticizing President Biden and Vice-President Kamala Harris for their alleged refusal to travel to the Southern border. That’s the issue that Fox News is struggling desperately to turn into the crisis of the century. It’s not as if we don’t already have a worldwide pandemic, multiple mass murders, insurrectionists attacking Congress, and totalitarians attempting to suppress voters and undermine democracy. Nope, Bartiromo is more concerned with Biden’s travel plans. She ran a video clip of Biden explaining why such a trip would not be advisable at present:
“He doesn’t want to be the issue. And Vice-President Kamala Harris, who says now that she’s not doing the border, despite President Biden putting her in charge, also has also has no plans to go.”
Immediately following that Bartiromo plays a video in which Harris was asked if she will visit the border and she says explicitly that “I have before and I’m sure I will again.” So Bartiromo’s own video proves that she’s lying about Harris. And yet she repeated her lie that “the Biden/Harris administration does not want to to visit the border.” Then, after introducing her guest, Bartiromo entered into this bizarre exchange with little Eric:
Bartiromo: It’s worth noting that Biden spent this weekend in Delaware, his fifth trip home since becoming President. That’s his sixth weekend away from the White House. We’re not even a hundred days in. Your reaction to this new administration, Eric?
Trump: I don’t even know where to begin First of all, Maria, it’s heartbreaking to us. I saw how much time and effort my father put into the job.
What’s worth noting is Bartiromo’s flaming hypocrisy and purposeful dishonesty. She knows full well that Trump made at least four times as many junkets to his own resort properties at the beginninging of his term. He played golf 19 times in his first 100 days, and spent many weekends at Mar-a-Lago. These were all trips that cost taxpayers million of dollars, including expenses for staff and Secret Service, that went straight into Trump’s pocket.
As for Eric, he spent his time stealing funds from a children’s cancer charity. And America mourns for his “broken” heart, because Daddy isn’t being sufficiently adored for all his hard work, which mainly consisted of angry tweeting, staging self-congratulatory photo-ops, and watching Fox News. Trumpette continued his embarrassingly incoherent rant saying that…
“I mean, Biden saying, ‘You know well, I’m not gonna go down there because I don’t want to inconvenience the Secret Service. And then you look at Kamala Harris who’s standing in front of literally Air Force Two in that last picture, where you’ve got the greatest ecosystem … You know how many times my father went down to the border? Because it’s a serious issue that plagues this country.”
Oh my. Harris stood “in front of literally Air Force Two.” As opposed to standing there figuratively? And Notice that Eric didn’t answer his own question about how many times Daddy went to the border? Either he doesn’t really know, or he knows it was just a handful. And he’s probably counting the campaign rallies and trips to Taco Bell. But he still wasn’t through making a fool of himself:
“And you see it, you see these children. My father had this issue fixed, Maria. […] My father had fixed this problem. Illegal immigration was not a problem anymore. […] A system that was working and was perfect and was fixed, turned into absolute junk.”
This is gaslighting on a grand scale. Trump’s own Customs and Border Protection agency (CBP) reveals that immigrants were crossing the border in record numbers during Trump’s term. He holds the current monthly record of 144,116 in May of 2019. And the most recent numbers for the last fiscal year of Trump’s presidency are 458,088. If that’s what Eric thinks is “fixed” than the COVID pandemic was also fixed during Trump’s term when American fatalities hit half a million.
Equally as nauseating is Eric’s phony sympathy for the children. He exhibited none of that when kids were forcibly ripped from their parents arms, some never to be reunited. And that wasn’t a policy failure, it was their intention. Trump admitted that the cruelty was a deliberate tactic to discourage other migrants who were already suffering and desperate to flee violence and poverty in their home countries. None of the Trump’s, or their facilitators in the Republican Party, were bothered by any of that.
Now Eric, and Bartiromo, and Jeanine Pirro (who hosted Trump Saturday night), are all praising Trump’s assertion that he will go to the border “over the next couple of weeks.” Is that like his promise to produce a healthcare plan in two weeks for over four years (which never materialized)?
Why would Trump even bother to go? He has no power to do anything. He can’t keep whining about the wall he never built, while wasting billions of dollars that Mexico never paid. The only plausible reason is that he has a psychotic compulsion to always be the center of attention.
That’s the curse of the malignant narcissist who craves the adulation of his dimwitted, glassy-eyed disciples. Even at a time when all other former presidents would step back for the sake of the nation and allow the new administration to chart their course. But Trump has never cared about what’s best for the nation. He is, and always has been, only concerned about himself. And he just keeps on proving it.
