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

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

Joe Biden, GOP, Titanic

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fox News, Maria Bartiromo, Eric Trump

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Donald Trump, Police

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Donald Trump Circling the Drain

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fox News Headline Contradicts Their Own Story About Approval for Biden’s COVID Policies

This week President Biden introduced an initiative to halt the current surge of COVID that is spreading mostly among the unvaccinated (i.e. Republicans and Fox News viewers). Consequently, Biden’s plan focuses on getting more people to get the shot and to take other precautions such as masking and testing.

Fox News, Joe Biden

Biden’s plan was immediately attacked by Fox News as an imposition of tyrannical mandates that rob Americans of their freedom – – to get sick and die and spread the same dire fates to others. Never mind that Fox News actually imposes even stricter mandates on their own employees, including the ones who air in primetime and tell their audience that vaccines don’t work.

However, Biden’s plan was well received by the American people. Polls show that majorities approve of requiring vaccinations or weekly testing for federal employees, school staff, and private businesses with 100 or more employees. Fox News even did a story about these polls. Unfortunately, it was a typically dishonest Fox News style story.

The headline for the article on their website said that “Biden’s push to combat COVID disapproved by roughly half of Americans.” The question asked specifically about mandating vaccines for workplaces with 100 or more employees. And the headline is technically true. Disapproval was “roughly half” (46%). But the other half who approved (53%) was greater. Leave it to Fox News to lead a story about a poll that showed majority approval by citing only the lower number who disapproved. What’s more, every specific question in the Quinnipiac poll about Biden’s plan showed that the American people were solidly in favor of it. Fox even said so in the body of the article:

“According to the poll, Americans by a nearly two-to-one margin support requiring students, teachers and school staff to wear masks. And a majority (57%) support requiring masks while in indoor public spaces. By a 68%-24% margin, those polled said that the rise in COVID deaths this summer was preventable.”

Furthermore, Fox included the results of another poll by Monmouth University that had similarly positive results. According to Fox’s article…

“63% of Americans support COVID vaccine mandates for health workers, with 58% supporting such mandates for federal employees, and 55% backing such requirements for private contractors working for the federal government. According to the survey, 63% support the instituting or reinstituting of state-based face mask and social distancing guidelines, up from 52% in July.”

Something that Fox News left out of their article was the finding in the Monmouth poll that said that “Among the nearly 1 in 4 who show anti-vaccine attitudes, 72% describe themselves as Republicans or lean toward the Republican Party.” Which is just more proof that watching Fox News and listening to Republicans is one of the best predictors of who is going to contract COVID.

While the Fox article contained some truthful bits of information, readers who just scanned the headlines would have come away with a completely false impression of reality. And that’s exactly what Fox intended. And it’s why the nation is currently suffering another catastrophic wave of this pandemic whose victims are predominantly Republicans, Fox News viewers, and Trump voters.

Joy Reid Unmasks the Republicans ‘Creepy Little COVID-Loving Death Cult’

As the latest wave of the coronavirus pandemic washes over America, the Republican Party and their Ministry of Disinformation (aka Fox News) continues to embrace policies that put more lives at risk and put off the day that the nation can return to some semblance of normalcy.

Republican Virus

If one didn’t know better, it would seem like the GOP is actually rooting for the virus to vanquish more Americans. Sadly, even though one does know better, it still seems that way. Republican governors like Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott not only reject the guidance of healthcare experts to wear masks and get vaccinated, they impose unconstitutional laws prohibiting localities, businesses, and schools from setting their own rules to keep people safe.

On Wednesday night MSNBC’s Joy Reid addressed this lethal brand of partisan politicking in a video venting directed at the GOP (Givers of Pestilence). She held nothing back in her condemnation of the Republicans’ “creepy little COVID-loving death cult”:

“We begin the Reidout tonight with a message to Republicans. Okay, we get it! COVID is the precious and you love it. You love COVID so much you want it to spread into schools, at the office, in the Walmart, on the cruise ships and at the club. That great spongy ball with the red spikes, you want it pumping through your veins with an Ivermectin chaser. Why do you love it so dadgum much? We have absolutely no bloody idea. But here’s the thing you weirdos, everyone else hates COVID!” […]

“You may want COVID. You may want to ingest horse de-wormer and attend far too many funerals, but we don’t. And it’s not just saying that or tweeting that. California voted that. It is perhaps the first real tangible proof that your creepy little COVID-loving death cult ways are not going to work for you at the ballot box next year. In fact it’s political suicide.”

This is the sort of blunt fearlessness that has made Reid a favorite foil of the right, and particularly of Donald Trump, who pretends not to know who she is. And it’s the sort of honesty that triggers Fox News, who felt compelled to do a story about this monologue that focused solely on the right-wing critics to whom she was referring. What Fox considers to be a newsworthy story is really just an opportunity to disparage a political foe. Fox said that…

“Reid was blasted on social media following the rant, with critics saying she was doing ‘significantly more harm than good,’ and that she was a ‘terrible person.’ One even suggested that she had a ‘mental problem’ and needed to be committed to a hospital.”

Notice that all of those criticisms were really just childish insults. They apparently were unable to disagree on substance with anything that Reid said. Fox then posted several tweets by 3rd rate conservative pundits maligning Reid, as if that bolstered their already feeble argument.

Fox News and the Republicans they prop up should really think twice (or even once) before they take on Reid or other progressives. After all, the unambiguously pro-COVID network can’t dispute the fact that COVID is now almost exclusively the Pandemic of Fox News. Their most-watched hosts are still lying about the efficacy of masks and vaccines. Tucker Carlson even harbors paranoid conspiracy theories that the vaccines don’t work, but sinister Deep State operatives won’t tell you that.

Carlson has also suggested that it would be acceptable for his viewers to commit the felony of counterfeiting official vaccination cards. That must be their way of ensuring that if the Fox/GOP COVID-loving death cultists don’t end up in the morgue, they’ll end up in prison.

Jen Psaki Slams Republicans Who Stood By While Trump ‘Fomented an Insurrection’

The new book, Peril, by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, is sending shockwaves through the national press. Excerpts reveal how the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Mark Milley, was dealing with what he called Donald Trump’s serious mental decline.”

Jen Psaki, Donald Trump

Most of the conservative Whacko Chamber has been hyperventilating over what they say is treason because Milley is reported to have had conversations with his counterparts in China. Never mind that that is a routine part of the job for people in national security posts. When reviewed in context, Milley was merely assuring China that, despite what looked like chaos and instability following the January 6th insurrection in Washington, D.C., the situation in the U.S. was under control and that there was no need to worry about psycho Trump launching a nuclear war.

Trump’s Defense Secretary, Mark Esper, was among those who were reacting to intelligence that said China was concerned about a U.S. attack. And the spokesperson for the Joint Chiefs backed up Milley’s actions saying that…

“The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs regularly communicates with Chiefs of Defense across the world, including with China and Russia. These conversations remain vital to improving mutual understanding of U.S. national security interests, reducing tensions, providing clarity and avoiding unintended consequences or conflict.

“His calls with the Chinese and others in October and January were in keeping with these duties and responsibilities conveying reassurance in order to maintain strategic stability. All calls from the Chairman to his counterparts, including those reported, are staffed, coordinated and communicated with the Department of Defense and the interagency.”

At Wednesday’s White House press briefing, Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked about Milley and whether President Biden still had confidence in his service. Her answer went a bit further than merely defending Milley. She also touched on the disreputability of his critics and Trump:

Reporter: Is there a point where criticism makes Gen. Milley is unable to continue in this role because it is a new administration, it is a new day, and there are some questions if he exceeded his authority?
Psaki: The President has complete confidence in his leadership, his patriotism, and his fidelity to our Constitution. I can’t speak to the former president’s experience with him or the former president’s views of him. But this current president who follows the Constitution, who’s not fomenting an insurrection, who follows the rule of law, has complete confidence in Chairman Milley and him continuing to serve in his role.
Reporter: Even as Republicans may criticize him and have questions about his suitability to continue, would that be a factor that President Biden would consider?
Psaki: I don’t think the president is looking for the guidance of members of Congress who stood by while the President of the United States and the leader of their party fomented an insurrection and many of them were silent.

It’s pretty remarkable that a White House spokesperson is forced to make a distinction between the former president and the current one “who’s not fomenting an insurrection.” And it’s hard to ignore the significance of her rejecting “the guidance of members of Congress who stood by while [Trump] fomented an insurrection and many of them were silent.”

Clearly it was Milley who was honoring his oath of loyalty to his country and acting out of patriotism. And it was Trump and his GOP minions in Congress who tried to stage a coup and prevent Congress from carrying out its constitutionally mandated duties. Psaki’s responses effectively turned the tables on the treason accusers. And now all we need is for justice to be served to the wrongdoers.

Fox News Online Quashes Coverage of Newsom’s Landslide Victory Over Recall and Trump-ism

The election to recall the governor of California went down in flames on Tuesday. Gavin Newsom defeated the blatantly partisan Republican sham with a whopping 28 point margin of victory. The results exceeded the predictions of recent polls and the race was called within an hour of the closing of the polls.

Fox News, Censorship

The outcome was a crushing blow to the GOP’s already Lilliputian stature in the Golden State. But it was also a striking repudiation of Donald Trump and his surly surrogate, Larry Elder. The parallels between Trump and Elder should have been a signal to California’s Republicans that Elder could not prevail. He even parroted Trump’s knee-jerk reaction to electoral drubbings by baselessly charging that the the election was rigged before any of the results were even tabulated.

Elder may have been fooled by the adoring coverage he got from Fox News He appeared on the network dozens of times prior to the election for interviews that were little more than campaign ads. So it shouldn’t surprise anyone to learn that after the election Fox News has imposed “radio silence” with regard to reporting Newsom’s triumph.

More than twelve hours after the race was called for Newsom, Fox News has not posted a single tweet announcing that Newsom had won. Although they did find time to tweet about the “volatile” Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne relationship, Nicki Minaj’s views on vaccines, and Rand Paul calling for another Biden staffer to be removed.

What’s more, Fox’s website also suppressed information about the recall results. There were no stories near the top of the page, but if you scrolled far enough down you would only find tangential and negatively framed articles such as…

  • Celebrities react to Gov. Gavin Newsom’s victory in his recall election
    Because that’s the most important post-election analysis Fox News could muster.
  • Newest CNN hire faces backlash after comments on Newsom recall
    Because reporting on other reporters takes priority over reporting actual news.
  • LA Times celebrates Gavin Newsom’s recall win over ‘extremist, intolerant’ Larry Elder: ‘A sigh of relief’
    Because Fox News can’t resist accusing other media of political bias.
  • Joe Concha: Newsom victory won’t erase California’s homelessness, crime, high taxes
    Because Fox apparently thinks that all political problems should be resolved a few hours after an election

Fox News spent many hours in the months before the recall election interviewing Elder and other Republican politicians and pundits. The election was cast a watershed event that would reveal the future course of California and the nation. But that was when Fox thought there was a chance that Newsom would lose. Now that he has achieved a resounding victory, Fox News is trying to pretend that the election never happened.

Don’t be surprised if Fox News never mentions the recall again. In fact, look for them to return to lying about Afghanistan, and defending the January 6th insurrectionists, and blaming low vaccination rates on Biden and Black Americans, and whatever other manufactured nonsense they’re cooking up. It’s what they do. And they won’t tolerate any real news getting in their way.

Pelosi to Gen Milley: Trump is ‘Crazy. You Know He’s Crazy. He’s Been Crazy for a Long Time’

In the fantastical final days of Donald Trump’s occupation of the White House, whatever measure of madness you might have imagined was actually much worse. Having lost so decisively to Joe Biden, a man Trump tried frame as a senile communist, threw Trump into a psychotic tailspin that was observable by all to whom he came in contact.

Donald Trump, Insane, Straight Jacket

The book new book, Peril, by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, is described by the publisher with this alarming blurb: “The transition from President Donald J. Trump to President Joseph R. Biden Jr. stands as one of the most dangerous periods in American history.” And even that is an understatement.

RELATED: PROJECTION: Trump and Fox News Attack Nancy Pelosi’s Mental Fitness

Excerpts from the book are beginning to emerge that chronicle the days following the January 6th insurrection in Washington, D.C. Among the most harrowing accounts of Trump’s descent into madness are the conversations House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had with the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley. CNN’s Jaime Gangel brought some of the more disturbing comments to her Tuesday morning segment of Inside Politics. Gangel led off by quoting from the book that…

“General Mark Milley took top secret action to limit President Trump’s ability to make strike or to use nuclear weapons. […] Milley is deeply shaken from the assault on the Capitol on [January] 6th. He believes Trump is unstable, unpredictable, and Milley believes that Trump is in serious mental decline.”

Then Gangel recounts the contents of a startling and historic phone call between Milley and Pelosi for which Woodward and Costa had obtained an exclusive transcript. In the call Pelosi revealed that she had the same concerns as Milley:

Pelosi: Who knows what he might do? He’s crazy. You know he’s crazy. He’s been crazy for a long time. So don’t say you don’t know what his state of mind is. He’s crazy. And what he did yesterday is further evidence of his craziness.
Milley: Madame Speaker, I agree with you on everything.

Some partisan players might be inclined to dismiss the concerns of Speaker Pelosi, a longtime and loyal Democrat. But Gen. Milley is a career Army officer who was appointed to his post by Trump and confirmed by the Senate on a vote of 89 to 1 (Jeff Merkely, a Democrat, was the sole “no” vote). Milley was so afraid that Trump could “go rogue” that he took precautionary measures to intercept any orders to use nuclear weapons.

As if that weren’t bad enough, CNN also reported another conversation documented in the book. Trump’s efforts to bully Vice-President Mike Pence reveal a desperate, delusional, and dangerous soon-to-be former president:

Trump: If these people say you had the power, wouldn’t you want to?
Pence: I wouldn’t want any one person to have that authority.
Trump: But wouldn’t it be almost cool to have that power?
Pence: No. I’ve done everything I could and then some to find a way around this. It’s simply not possible.
Trump: No, no, no! You don’t understand, Mike. You can do this. I don’t want to be your friend anymore if you don’t do this.

And there we can see Trump’s emotional maturity reverting to elementary school level. Which is a key symptom of senility. The stubbornness, the anger, the vindictiveness, and the tantrum throwing when he doesn’t get his way, are all characteristics of a petulant child. No wonder the people on the inside were scared.

Unfortunately, not enough of them were scared enough to remove the twice-impeached Trump from office when they had the chance – twice. And lily-livered sycophants like GOP leaders Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy only made things worse. Their docile servility to the cult of Trump has left the nation in the precarious position it is in today.

RELATED: WTF? Trump Flunkies on Fox News Blame Pelosi for Plot to Assassinate Herself

With Trump continuing to propagate the “Big Lie” about election fraud, and incite further violence and domestic terrorism (aided and abetted by Fox News), it is at least somewhat comforting that there are failsafe features in our government that can prevent lunatics like Trump, and others like him, from executing their maniacal plots. The question is, how long will that hold up if the perpetrators aren’t held accountable under the law?

UPDATE: Trump appeared on the Newsmax program hosted by his former press secretary, Sean Spicer, to respond to the excerpts from Woodward’s book. He began by accusing Milley of treason, but by the end of his rant he was attacking Woodward’s veracity. So which is it Donnie? Is it fake news or treason? Or are you just babbling again, as usual?

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Attends the Met Gala in a Dress that Really Makes a Statement

It’s that time of year again. It’s time for the “Met Gala,” an annual charity event held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The event is known for inspiring attendees to adorn themselves in unique, and often bizarre, costumes that frequently create a stir on the red carpet.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Tax the Rich

According to Wikipedia

“The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala or the Costume Institute Benefit and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. It marks the opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit.”

This year the gala was graced with the presence of the representative for New York’s 14th congressional district, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. And she arrived in an outfit that is as much a political statement as it is a fashion statement: Tax the Rich!

This should give Fox News something to talk about for the rest of the month, at least.
