SCARY: Trump Posts Infantile Mauling of Fox News for Daring to Interview a (GASP) Democrat

On this All Hallows Eve there are armies of ghouls and goblins wandering the streets of America searching for brains. You can recognize them by their red hats and confederate flags. And it’s abundantly clear why they are so fixated on finding brains: They have an acute deficiency of them in their own hollow skulls.

Donald Trump, Fox News, Halloween

The leader of the zombie pack is their cult messiah Donald Trump. And on the day before Halloween he took to his floundering social media scam, Truth Social, to terrorize his already fearful glassy-eyed disciples. Amongst a barrage of dozens of posts exalting his own self-proclaimed divinity, Trump included one that was specifically crafted to foment the foreboding fright that he regularly injects into their tortured souls.

RELATED: MAGA ‘Patriot’ Trump Says that America is ‘Crooked and Evil’ and its ‘Next Stop, Communism’

Trump’s complaint centered on his morbidly obsessive need to insure that everyone in politics and the press agree with his utterly ignorant and unrealistic views, or be chastised for their betrayal. So Trump whined

“Why would Fox News have SleazeBall Congressman Al Green on to spew his stupidity? It’s time to get back to basics. Let him, and other Slime like him, continue to ruin MSDNC & CNN, which are dying. Keep them off Conservative Media, if that’s an accurate definition of what Fox has become?”

Uh-Oh. The sleaze and slime squads are swarming the TV screens of America with their dire debunking of Republican propaganda. That’s what Trump was so triggered by in his pseudo-tweet. Democratic Rep. Al Green was interviewed by Mike Emanuel on Fox News (video below) and had the audacity to reveal the truth about both the economy and the crime rates, two issues that top voters’ interests, and that have been exploited by the GOP. Green began by stating the facts about higher gas prices, a key factor inflation…

“Let’s talk about what has really created inflation. This inflation is caused by oil companies not wanting to increase refinery capacity. They don’t want to increase refining capacity because they are making huge profits by not doing so, […] the oil companies are making huge profits. Why would they want to bring prices down? That’s not an incentive. They want to keep prices high.”

Fox’s Emanuel had no response for that exposition of truth, so he just segued to a different topic: crime. And on this subject Green was equally prepared with the facts. He started out by noting that crime rates were higher in Republican Kevin McCarthy’s Bakersfield, California district than they were in Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco district. Then he elaborated saying that…

“I think we ought to compare states as well as cities. My colleagues are very good at creating alternative facts. But the truth is, according to statistical information, in 2020 the per capita murder rates were 40% higher in states won by Donald Trump, than those won by Joe Biden. Empirical evidence. Eight of ten states with the highest murder rates in 2020 voted for the Republican presidential nominee in every election in this century.”

Clearly Democrats have been better stewards of the nation with regard to both crime and economics. And Fox News couldn’t even dispute those facts. But that didn’t stop Trump from throwing the sort of childish tantrum that has become his hallmark. And, of course, Fox helped Trump to distort the record that shows the superiority of the Democrats, who also favor democracy over the authoritarian tyranny that Trump and his minions are trying to impose.

RELATED: Fox News Covers Positive GDP Report as a Dystopian Debacle By Democrats in ‘Dire Straits’

Along with his comment whining about Green and Fox News, it’s notable that Trump posted 90 other comments since the assassination attempt intended for Pelosi, but still made no mention of the attack, nor any condemnation, nor any expression of sympathy. However, it may be better that Trump says nothing about that than risk making yet another stupid remark that reflects badly on his subservient Republican comrades.

UPDATE: Trump posted 18 more self-exalting, messianic comments including one with the QAnon slogan, WWG1WGA (where we go 1, we go all), and one that labels President Biden “PedoHitler.” He also raged some more about Fox News saying that…

“Fox News treats “TRUMP” every bit as badly as they did in 2015, before I later won the Election. Fox was brutal then, and not too good now. This lightweight failure in the Obama Administration, Fox News Contributer Marie Harf, is allowed to say anything she wants, without rebuttal – and others likewise. I beat Crooked Hillary Clinton, and then beat Biden by much more. Fox is afraid to say what REALLY happened in that farce of an Election – IT WAS RIGGED AND STOLLEN. Get tough Republicans!!!”

So Trump thinks that Fox News slobbering all over him, and airing all of his rallies in 2015 and 2016 uninterrupted, was bad treatment? And he’s still lying that he beat Biden? He lost the popular vote to both Clinton (by 3 million) and Biden (by 7 million). Trump was upset because of this segment with Harf on Fox News, where she was not only rebutted, but repeatedly interrupted. And if Republicans had any toughness they would help to prosecute and punish Trump. But they’re weak and scared and corrupt.

Fox News Covers Positive GDP Report as a Dystopian Debacle By Democrats in ‘Dire Straits’

Nothing is more predictable than Fox News spinning a positive news story as a catastrophic calamity if they can find a way to blame it on President Biden or the Democrats. In fact, Fox News actually favors America failing during Democratic administrations so they can use it as a political cudgel.

Fox News, Joe Biden, Fake News

On Thursday morning Harris Faulkner, a Fox News host that they pretend is a “straight news” journalist, reported on the announcement that the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) unexpectedly rose more than anticipated for the third quarter of 2022. The 2.6% growth was welcomed by President Biden who said in a statement that…

“For months, doomsayers have been arguing that the US economy is in a recession and Congressional Republicans have been rooting for a downturn. But today we got further evidence that our economic recovery is continuing to power forward.”

RELATED: Fox News Blatantly Lies that Biden ‘Praised’ High Gas Prices When He Actually Criticized Them

Despite the unambiguously good news, Faulkner sought to portray it as evidence of an economic apocalypse. She began by regurgitating conservative media “concerns for the liberal political party that President Joe Biden just spent too much time talking about abortion last week.” It is unlikely that the majority of Americans who favor reproductive choice think too much time was spent on the issue.

Faulkner then segued to her criticism of Democrats for supposedly switching gears and “trying to go all in on the economy.” Of course, she can only assert that by ignoring the fact that Democrats have been viscerally engaged in economic issues for months, but that Republicans have been obstructing them at every turn. The GOP voted almost in lock-step against Democratic initiatives to lower drug prices, reduce child poverty, extend unemployment benefits, raise the minimum wage, prohibit gas price gouging, limit the cost of insulin, go after rich tax cheats, expand baby formula production, make the wealthy pay their fair share, and more.

But Faulkner wasn’t finished. She also complained that inflation and interest rates were “robbing people of any chance to realize the American Dream.” Never mind that her party and network stood in the way of resolving those matters. And she had the audacity to say that Democrats were “finally now trying to convince voters that they care about the economy.” Again, she simply wasn’t paying attention. Or more accurately, she was lying.

But Faulkner still wasn’t finished. She also said that the new GDP numbers were “not much for [Democrats] to work with,” and that they were just a “slight uptick in the third quarter.” That allegedly slight uptick actually wiped out the negative numbers posted in the previous two quarters combined.

But Faulkner still wasn’t finished. She concluded with remarks that didn’t even make sense…

“If Democrats truly believe that Americans would not understand or care about this, then why are they suddenly trying to convince the voters that the economy is all the Republicans fault? They are in dire straits, Democrats are, with voters. And they know it.”

Huh? She prefaces that comment with a bizarre assertion that Democrats “believe that Americans would not understand or care” about the economy. Where she gets that from is a complete mystery. But her inference from that non sequitur somehow leads to Democrats faulting Republicans for the economy. Well, considering the GOP’s deliberate efforts to prevent any solutions, Democrats would be quite right in assigning that blame.

That would be bad enough if it stopped there. But Republicans are openly promising to sabotage the economy in order to improve their electoral prospects in the midterms and in 2024. Thay have said so explicitly. Funny, Faulkner never mentioned any of that.

Fox News Hack FREAKS OUT Over President Biden Eating Ice Cream at a Campaign Stop

There is nothing Fox News likes better than inventing pseudo-scandals to malign President Biden and other Democrats. That’s mainly because they can’t find any actual scandals to pin on Biden and company. As a result we are subjected to feigned outrage over obvious contrivances such as Hunter Biden’s laptop, or gay Legos, or armed IRS Agents hunting down middle-class families.

Jesse Watters, Fox News

On Monday evening’s episode of the Jesse Watters program on Fox News, the dumbest man on TV pontificated profusely on what may be the most heinous offence ever committed by an American president. Joe Biden actually had the audacity to take a few minutes out of his day, while campaigning on behalf of Democrats in Oregon, to visit a local ice cream parlor for a sweet treat. And who better than Jesse Watters to expose Biden’s ill manners?

RELATED: Another Fox News Sleazeball Has Been Caught in a Sex Scandal with a 25 Year Old Co-Worker

While on the campaign trail, reporters asked Biden to address the inflation that the U.S. – and every other country in the world – is enduring. Biden gave a sound and succinct reply – something that Donald Trump and Republicans are incapable of – then resumed enjoying his tasty dessert. And that heinous act of barbarism triggered a rather bizarre response from Watters:

Biden: Our economy is strong as hell – the internals of it. Inflation is worldwide. It’s worse off everywhere else than it is in the United States.
Watters: A man should never lick an ice cream cone in public. A man can only eat ice cream on vacation. I guess Biden’s always on vacation, so it makes sense. But if a man needs to eat ice cream in public, he should scoop it out of a bowl with a spoon.

“The President of the United States licking things, especially ice cream, is childish. It’s frivolous and it’s too casual a look for the country. Biden’s brain freeze will live in infamy. Just like Bush gave up golf after 9/11, Biden should give up ice cream after the recession. You’re not at a birthday party, Joe.

First of all, Biden is correct. The efforts by Republicans and Fox News to blame Biden for what is a worldwide economic problem is deliberately dishonest. They cannot, of course, rationally blame Biden for the inflation in France or Japan. But they persist in false accusations that something Biden did produced the inflation in the U.S. Although they can’t specify what he is supposed to have done. In reality, he’s done quite a lot that is beneficial to the majority of the country.

RELATED: For Those Wondering What Biden and Democrats in Congress Have Been Doing the Past 16 Months…

However, Watters didn’t linger on the question about the economy, which does have some significance to most Americans. Nope. He dived immediately into the reprehensible ice cream atrocity by Biden. And Watters labored mightily to nail what was so hideous about it. After all, everyone knows that “a man should never lick an ice cream cone in public.” And that “a man can only eat ice cream on vacation.” And even then he must “scoop it out of a bowl with a spoon.” Otherwise, he is being “childish,” “frivolous,” and “too casual.”

How can President Biden hope to relate to average Americans when he so brazenly breaches the behavioral standards that are core to the American character? What other political figure would ever do such a thing? And who can blame Fox News for featuring this depravity, which they have done before? Well, there is this…

The GOP’s Not-So-Secret Plot to Sabotage the Economy if They Gain Control of Congress

With the 2022 midterm election now less than a month away, this may be a good time to ponder what the Republican Party would do should they manage to win a majority in the House, the Senate, or both. And in some respects they have been helpfully candid as to their plans should their aspirations come to pass.

Donald Trump, Republican, GOP

It isn’t exactly a pretty picture. Among the more brazenly shameless admissions on the the part of leading Republicans have been Sen. Lindsey Graham’s promise to advance legislation to ban abortion nationwide, and Sen. Rick Scott’s agenda proposing to sunset Social Security and Medicare.

RELATED: Rick Scott is the Best Chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee the Democrats Ever Had

However, the most harrowing scenario cooked up by the power mad GOP is their plan to take the nation’s economy hostage by demanding that Democrats submit to their policy demands or else they will refuse to negotiate the debt ceiling. Those GOP proposals include cutting taxes for corporations and the wealthy, and slashing benefits for seniors and healthcare recipients.

To be clear, the debt ceiling defines the government’s limits on issuing credit in order to pay its bills. If it isn’t appropriately adjusted, the result would be the U.S. government falling into default. That would create an economic crisis in the U.S. and around the world. It is the equivalent of the “nuclear” option for the economy. And Republicans are threatening to drop that bomb if they don’t get their way.

This isn’t idle speculation. Leading Republicans in Congress have openly expressed their intentions to deploy this political weapon. Bloomberg News reports that “‘The debt limit is clearly one of those tools that Republicans — that a Republican-controlled Congress — will use… ‘ said Rep. Jason Smith (R-Mo.).” And that… “House Republicans are openly threatening to cause an economic catastrophe in order to realize their obsession with slashing Medicare and Social Security,” Henry Connelly, a Pelosi spokesman, said in a Tuesday statement to Bloomberg Government.”

It should come as no surprise that this economic terrorism is being ignited by the GOP cult messiah, Donald Trump. For months he has been chastising Republican Senate minority leader, Mitch McConnell, for not issuing debt ceiling threats to allow a default. As recently as last month Trump whined on his floundering social media scam, Truth Social, that…

“Mitch McConnell is giving the Democrats everything they want. He is their lapdog! He didn’t stop trillions of dollars in spending by refusing to use the Debt Ceiling as a negotiating tool. He gave it up for nothing. […] in order to destroy America.”

Republicans have already been acting to tank the economy. They have voted against several bills that would have eased inflation, and lowered the costs of gas and healthcare. The threat of that betrayal, and the devastating default that Republicans are embracing, has not been getting the media attention that such catastrophes merit. Virtually the only recent television coverage has been on MSNBC by Chris Hayes, who warned that…

“If the economy is the number one issue to voters, then there is one party that will have an incentive to make it better. And that party is the one that has the presidency. The Democrats.

“The other side, the Republicans, have an explicit incentive to make the economy worse. And I will tell you, having covered the Tea Party Congress of 2011, amidst the recovery from the financial crisis, i feel confident in predicting that if Republicans win control of one or both houses of Congress, they will do everything in their power to sabotage the economy to best set them up to retake the White House in 2024.”

And Hayes’ guest during this segment, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, concurred, saying that…

“The Republicans are loud and clear about this. They’ve already said, for example, that they will use the debt ceiling negotiations. […] There are already Republicans saying that if they can get control of the House or the Senate then they’re going to hold hostage things like Social Security and Medicare.”

Republicans are aiming a weapon of mass economic destruction at the United States and all of its citizens. And there is little being done about it by the media, whose job it is to keep people informed of threats such as this. What the GOP is plotting would produce more harm than the recent hurricane in Florida. But there aren’t any hourly updates about the path of this disaster. That needs to change – and fast!

Karine Jean-Pierre Has to School Peter Doocy of Fox News that Lower Gas Prices Are a Good Thing

The mission of Fox News from its inception has been to deceive their viewers by distorting the stories they present in order to advance the interests of corporations and the wealthy. They feverishly twist their “alternative facts” into maliciously negative attacks on Democrats and progressives seeking to benefit the majority of the American people.

Fox News, Peter Doocy, Karine Jean-Pierre

Fox’s White House correspondent, Peter Doocy, is the frontline propagator of their propaganda. He occupies a seat at the daily press briefings tasked by his bosses, the Murdochs, to manufacture phony controversies and try to embarrass the President and his spokespeople with “gotcha” questions. Unfortunately for Fox News, he has never been very good at it.

RELATED: HAH! Jen Psaki Says Doocy’s Fox News Questions Would ‘Make Anyone Sound Like a Stupid S.O.B.’

On Friday Doocy sought to waste the time of every in the room by asking Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre a question that reeked of bias and ignorance. Jean-Pierre replied with a remarkable degree of patience, considering the blitheringly idiotic inquisition by Doocy:

Doocy: Why is the president bragging today about gas prices?
Jean-Pierre: Because it’s gone down.

That’s right! The answer was as simple as that. But it was way above Doocy’s capacity to grasp it. Or perhaps just outside of his mandate as a disinformation disseminator. And yet, after being politely told why President Biden was happy about the trend in gas prices, Doocy felt compelled to resume his badgering:

Doocy: It’s still $1.72 higher than when he took office.
Jean-Pierre: It has come down in a way we haven’t seen, it’s trajectory coming down, in over a decade.
Doocy: It’s still over $4.00 a gallon though. Is that good?
Jean-Pierre: You want to talk to a nurse or a teacher or a firefighter, if having that little bit of breathing room doesn’t matter to them. […] That matters. And the reason we’re seeing that is because of the work this President has done the last several months.

For the record, gas prices have been falling for two months. In much of the country the average price is below $4.00 per gallon, a decline of 20%. Most consumers would regard that as positive news.

While oil is an international commodity that no president can control, Biden can take some of the credit for the savings due to his affirmative action. Early on he ordered the release of a million barrels of oil a day from the strategic reserve. He put pressure on oil companies and stations not to gouge consumers as oil prices were falling. He supported alternative energy and vehicles, which reduces demand while supplies were increasing, which drives down prices.

In the meantime, Fox News and the Republican Party they shill for, seem to be upset that the American people are saving money on gas. While they steadfastly blamed Biden as the prices rose, they are now criticizing him for the decline. And Doocy’s insinuation that people should still be mad because gas costs more than it did in 2020, ignores the reality of the marketplace. There’s a reason that Biden once referred to Doocy as a “stupid SOB.”

When Biden took office the nation was still suffering from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic at its peak, and people were not traveling very much or even commuting to work. That absence of demand is what brought gas prices down so artificially low. Since Biden’s inauguration the pandemic situation, and the economy, have improved considerably. Consequently, people are back to work, they’re taking trips, and they are considerably more confident that they can spend money – even with inflation – without risking their financial welfare.

RELATED: Biden Brilliantly Debunks the Lies By Trump and Fox News About Energy Production in America

All of that is positive news for the nation and the people. But leave it to Fox News to try to find some apocalyptic spin that they can use to foment fear and make people’s lives miserable. Because they want people to to be miserable in order to have something to bash Biden with. And stirring up political hostilities is much higher on their priority list than telling the truth. Especially if the truth might make people happier and look more favorably toward the President.

Fox News Blatantly Lies that Biden ‘Praised’ High Gas Prices When He Actually Criticized Them

It’s another day that ends in “Y” so Fox News is creating another in their perennial series of flagrant falsehoods aimed at maligning Democrats. It’s an awesome burden that they bear to keep coming up with new lies. And President Biden isn’t helping by failing to provide them with actual catastrophes that they can plausibly blame him for.

Fox News, Joe Biden, Fake News

On Tuesday morning the official “Message of the Day” as chosen by Fox’s editorial board was that Biden confessed to intentionally raising gas prices and “praised” the increases. That was the wholly contrived narrative introduced by Maria Bartiromo for her segment on the subject following a video clip of Biden commenting on energy matters. An exasperated Bartiromo exclaimed “Look, he just admitted it in that sound bite that this is all intentional. It’s a plan.”

RELATED: Fox News Lies that Poll Shows a ‘Majority’ of Americans Blame Biden for Inflation – It Doesn’t!

Of course Biden never “admitted” anything of the sort. Not even close. But that didn’t stop Fox News from disseminating this deceitful drivel across their media platforms. On the Fox News website they posted a story headlined “President Biden seems to praise high gas prices as ‘incredible transition’ Americans must go through.” For the record, what Biden actually said was…

“When it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over.”

Nowhere in that commentary did Biden suggest that high gas prices were intentional. Nor did he praise or celebrate them. To the contrary, when someone includes the phrase “God willing” in this context, it indicates an explicit desire for relief from hardship. And Biden’s optimism that “the world will be stronger … when this is over” affirms his acknowledgement of the troubles that people are presently enduring, with a hopeful eye toward the future.

To put an even finer point on how wrong the Fox News analysis of this was, Biden later spoke about “what I’ve been able to do to keep it from getting even worse — and it’s bad.” So apparently Fox News regards words like “worse” and “bad” as synonymous with “praise.”

Fox News never bothers to explain why Biden would want to deliberately increase gas prices. Do they think that Biden’s agenda views punishing people at the pump as a strategy that will deliver more votes?

Such logical considerations are foreign to Fox’s faux journalism. To Fox News all that matters is that Biden used the adjective “incredible” to describe the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy. And because Fox’s vocabulary is so shallow, they think that the word “incredible” can only mean fantabulous, rather than just notable or uncommon.

Fox News is also fixated on opposing environmentally sound alternatives to fossil fuels, which Biden correctly notes would make the U.S. and the world stronger. In their article they complain that Biden’s policies contributed to the increase in gas prices. Their evidence is that he canceled the Keystone XL pipeline and paused some oil and gas leases on federal lands. Neither of those measures would have any effect on gas prices. The Keystone XL pipeline was slated to move oil from Canada to the Gulf Coast where it was to be shipped overseas. And the leases were withdrawn because the oil companies weren’t using them.

RELATED: Biden Brilliantly Debunks the Lies By Trump and Fox News About Energy Production in America

Another thing that Fox News never bothers to explain is why gas prices are increasing around the world. And in most places the increases are far higher than here in the U.S. In fact, rating the highest gas prices in 170 countries, the U.S. at $4.66 per gallon is way down the list at #106. Does Fox News think that Biden is also president of Norway where gas is twice as much at $9.64 per gallon?

The lies that Fox News is dispensing have already spread to their political affiliates. The New York Post writes that “Biden praises high gas prices as part of ‘incredible transition.'” The Federalist says that “Biden Celebrates Record-High Gas Prices As ‘Incredible Transition.'” The Daily Caller asks “So the high prices are intentional, Joe?” And of course Republicans in Congress (i.e. Marsha Blackburn, Ted Cruz, Rick Scott, Steve Scalise, etc) are regurgitating the false reporting.

The right-wing echo chamber is reverberating with this rubbish. And it will continue as long as they think they can get some political mileage out of it. After which they will have to invent some other fake scandal and start all over again. It’s what they were created to do. It’s why Biden appropriately called them out for being One of the Most Destructive Forces in the U.S. But the only thing that they accomplish is making their audience more stupid every day. And at they they are pretty darn good.

When Biden Shows Compassion for Struggling Americans, Trump’s Spokes-Shill Calls Him a Sociopath

President Biden was in Chicago on Wednesday to give a speech at the 40th Annual Conference of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW). It was speech that affirmed his agenda, and that of the Democratic Party, that seeks to restore some semblance of fairness on behalf of working class Americans.

Click here to Tweet this article

Joe Biden, Tweet

Biden’s speech covered many of the tangible benefits already realized as a result of passage of the American Rescue Plan. He spoke of creating “8.3 million jobs in my first 15 months in office – a record.” He acknowledged that “the unemployment rate now stands at 3.6 percent, the fastest decline in unemployment at the start of any President’s term on record.” And he pointed out that…

“Under my predecessor, the great MAGA king, the deficit increased every single year he was President. The first year of my presidency – the first year, I reduced the deficit – literally reduced the deficit by $350 billion. First year. And this year – and this year, we’re on track to cut the federal deficit by 1 trillion 500 billion dollars – the biggest decline in debt ever in American history.”

Biden also spoke about the “Ultra-MAGA” plan proposed by Republicans that “raises taxes on 75 million American families” [and] “puts Social Security, Medicare … and Medicaid on the chopping block every five years.”

Sadly, albeit predictably, the only thing that the “Ultra-MAGA” crowd was able to focus on were the buzzwords and Biden’s compassionate demeanor. Trump himself was elated that Biden referred to him as “the Great MAGA King” which only affirms his lust for tyrannical power. But nowhere was the “Biden Derangement Syndrome” more apparent, and abhorrent, than in the reactions by the Republican National Committee and Donald Trump’s spokes-shill, Liz Harrington.

RELATED: Trump’s Spokeswoman Keeps Committing the Same Violations on Twitter that Got Trump Banned

The RNC watched a clip from Biden’s speech, which they posted to Twitter believing that his emotional tone of voice somehow made him look bad. Harrington agreed and retweeted the clip with her warped opinion that Biden’s heartfelt feelings were akin to sociopathy. Biden said…

“Remember those long lines you’d see on the television and people lining up in all kinds of vehicles just to get a box of food in their trunk? How quickly we forget people were hurting. And what did the MAGA crowd want to do? Forget it. Forget it. God, this is the United States of America. The idea that people would have to wait in line an hour or hour and a half to get a box of food in their trunk – it’s just unbelievable.”

And the RNC and Harrington replied…

So Harrington thinks that showing concern for the hardships that people endure, and wanting to help them, is “sociopathic”? That explains a lot. It explains why Republicans are so determined to provide benefits for the wealthy and for greedy corporations. Their definitions are severely distorted in a manner that makes them think that helping ordinary people is an abomination, and therefore, catering to millionaires and billionaires is an act of charity. Thanks for clearing that up, Liz.

BIDEN: Americans Have a Choice Between Two Very Different Sets of Values: Ultra-MAGA or Sanity

For the past few months President Biden’s approval ratings have been mired in the low 40s. It is a situation that has frustrated him and his fellow Democrats as the midterm elections approach. If his polling doesn’t improve it could portend severe losses and the nightmare prospect of Republicans assuming control of both houses of Congress.

Click here to Tweet this article

Joe Biden, Donald Trump

On Tuesday Biden addressed the issue that is paramount on the minds of most voters: the economy. He held a press conference where he spoke about the burdens faced by the American people due to inflation and other economic pressures (video below). His speech clearly laid out the differences between his agenda and that of the Republican Party. And one segment of the speech encapsulated the message that could turn around the prospects of Democrats if it were effectively communicated. Biden said that…

“Americans have a choice right now between two paths, reflecting two very different sets of values.

“My plan attacks inflation and grows the economy by lowering costs for working families, giving workers well-deserved raises, reducing the deficit by historic levels, and making big corporations and the very wealthiest Americans pay their fair share.

“The other path is the ultra-MAGA plan put forward by congressional Republicans to raise taxes on working families; lower the incomes of American workers; threaten the sacred programs Americans count on like Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid; and give break after break to big corporations and billionaires — just like they did the last time they held power when their top priority was a reckless $2 trillion tax cut going — the majority of that going to the very wealthiest Americans, which ballooned the deficit, and not a penny of it was paid for.”

That’s it. Democrats are for “lowering costs for working families,” and “making big corporations and the very wealthiest Americans pay their fair share.” Republicans are for “the ultra-MAGA plan” that would lower incomes, threaten Social Security, and give breaks to the wealthy and big business.

If Democrats can drive home those points to the people, they will win handily in November. And Biden also noted that “Republicans have offered plenty of blame but not a single solution.” In fact, the GOP is not merely lacking solutions, they actively oppose them. They prefer to let the American people suffer so that they can use their hardship as a political weapon against Biden and the Democrats.

As an example of the two paths that Biden spoke of, a reporter asked the President about remarks made by Sen. Rick Scott of Florida. Scott said that…

“The most effective thing Joe Biden can do to solve the inflation crisis he created is resign. He’s the problem. […] Joe Biden is unwell. He’s unfit for office. He’s incoherent, incapacitated, and confused.”

And those are the sort of infantile insults that are the core of the GOP’s political strategy. Scott is also the chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. It’s his job to design the policy agenda for the party. And the plan that he announced recently would raise taxes on working families and sunset Social Security and Medicare.

In other words, Republicans are, as usual, promising to give every advantage to the rich, while giving only unfulfillable promises of trickling down to everyone else. It has never worked in the past, and it won’t work now. Democrats need to get that message out quickly and repeatedly for the next six months if they hope to prevail in November. And it wouldn’t hurt either if Congress and the Department of Justice moved more expeditiously on indicting Donald Trump.

Dementia-Addled Trump Descends Into Gibberish When Hannity Asks What He Would Do About Inflation

Poor Donald Trump. By his own account he is the world’s biggest victim. While he puts on airs of being a dominant alpha male, he whines like a colicky infant whenever anyone directs even the gentlest criticism at him. He literally bragged that he is the most fabulous whiner.”

Donald Trump Circling the Drain

Trump took a break from headlining his increasingly unpopular MAGA Cult Tour to visit with his BFF Sean Hannity on Wednesday. He could not have asked for a friendlier venue than the Fox News Primetime Trump-Fluffing Hour with a host who is best known for cravenly kissing his, let’s say ring.

Nevertheless, Trump managed to humiliate himself with his unartful dodge of a question that should have been a “gimme.” That’s surely what Hannity intended. But Trump is too cognitively deficient to field even a softball from a slobbering sycophant. Hannity set up the question by maligning President Biden and lying about the state of the economy. And that produced the following hysterical response to Hannity’s inquiry about inflation (video below):

Hannity: If you’re president, what would you do?
Trump: So what you’re saying sounds all very easy and sounds very simple, not actually that simple, but I will tell you that this is like the biggest tax increase in history. If you look at what inflation is doing, and I saw a number today that wages can go up, but they’re nowhere near what’s being taken out of families by pure inflation. Just the cost of bread, the cost of gas, the cost of gasoline, the cost of everything. Everything is up.”

Reminder: The question was “What would you do” about inflation? So far, Trump hasn’t gotten anywhere near that. But he is regurgitating the rote Republican response that somehow Biden is responsible for inflation, despite the fact that it is occurring throughout the world due to multiple factors, including COVID and the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Trump (cont’d): “And supply chain. You go to stores and they’re half empty. Many stores they can’t get products. They can’t get anything. You go to luxury stores or non-luxury stores, supermarkets, and the shelves are half there. And nobody’s ever seen it. We didn’t even have to discuss supply chain during my administration. Because it was a perfect moving machine. It was beautiful. We created the greatest economy in the history of the world. We created an economy that was better than any economy in history.”

Reminder: The question was “What would you do” about inflation? But still no coherent solutions from Trump. However, he does demonstrate that he hasn’t been in a supermarket lately, where the shelves are pretty full. He also seems to have forgotten how the supply chain was disrupted during his occupation of the White House, when common consumer products like toilet paper were nowhere to be seen. And businesses were shuttered because he refused to take the advice of doctors and epidemiologists to contain the pandemic. His “beautiful,” “perfect moving machine” resulted in the first presidency in decades to have fewer jobs at the end than when it began.

Trump (cont’d): “Then we got hit by the ‘China’ virus, and after the ‘China’ virus we did one of the best jobs in the world of doing everything including Operation Warp Speed and everything that that entailed. The therapeutics, the vaccines, everything we did and then they messed it up with the mandates, and they absolutely were killing our country with the mandates which should have never happened. It’s just so sad to hear because this was all a self-inflicted wound from inflation to the loss of energy independence. And now add to that what’s going on in Ukraine. That’s genocide. What’s happening in Ukraine, people have never seen anything like that before.

Reminder: The question was “What would you do” about inflation? And there you have it. The entire, interminable, rambling rant never touched on the substance of the question. That’s because Trump has no friggin’ idea what to do about inflation. Just as he has no friggin’ idea what to do about Ukraine. But he does rage against common sense measures to protect people from a deadly virus, even as he tries to take credit for it.

Trump continues to prove that his ignorance has no bounds. He doesn’t even have the ability to fake it when asked questions that should have been anticipated and prepared for. Then again, he doesn’t need to worry about toadies like Hannity asking any follow up questions, or even expecting a relevant, comprehensible answer. Everyone around Trump just accepts, and worse, nurtures his decaying mental state. And the threat of anyone with his degree of dementia holding any position of power in the future is unthinkably horrifying.

Jen Psaki Shreds Texas Gov. Abbott’s Publicity Stunts that are Hurting Texas and America

The Republican Party of Donald Trump has become so enthralled with Dear Leader that they have abandoned any pretense to actually governing or developing policies that benefit the American people. Their entire political platform now consists solely of fawning adorations of Trump and vicious defamatory attacks on Democrats.

Psaki Lightening

Among the most brazen and shameless Trump-fluffers is Texas governor Greg Abbott. And this week he appears to be mounting a major offensive to test just how much he can offend his constituents before they send him into a disgraced retirement. Ignoring all of the real issues that are on the minds of the citizens in his state, Abbott is pursuing a pair of pointless initiatives aimed only at generating the interest of Fox News and other rightist media hacks.

RELATED: Texas Governor Whines to Fox News, Blames Biden, After Recklessly Revoking COVID Rules

Abbott began the week by announcing that he intended to load migrants onto buses and transport them from Texas to Washington, D.C. There is, of course, no legal or administrative purpose to this policy. It would only serve to waste Texas taxpayer dollars in a petty and futile effort to embarrass President Biden. It would, however, achieve the goal of placing the migrants in a jurisdiction where they will be treated humanely according to the law and the Constitution. Which is surely not what Abbott intended.

What Abbott intended was to manufacture a publicity stunt that would dehumanize refugees from poverty and violence. And the evidence of his publicity motivation was apparent when the first bus arrived in Washington and parked in front of Fox News, as reported by John Roberts of Fox News:

White House Press Secretary, Jen Psaki, was asked about this ludicrous relocation program by Fox’s Peter Doocy. She replied that…

“I’m not aware of what authority the governor would be doing that under. I think it’s pretty clear this is a publicity stunt. His own office admits that a migrant would need to voluntarily be transported, and he can’t compel them to because, again, enforcement of our country’s immigration laws lies with the federal government, not a state.”

Not satisfied with humiliating himself by providing free bus rides to willing migrants, Abbott moved on to implement a costly, unpopular, and useless border inspection plan. He described this staged media affair as “enhanced safety inspections” to catch “cartels that smuggle illicit contraband and people across our southern border.” The only problem with that is his phony inspections cannot do what he said they do. His Democratic opponent for governor, Beto O’Rourke, spelled out what a fraud it was on “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell,” saying that…

“These trucks that Greg Abbott has blockaded from coming into the United States are carrying parts that are destined for factories in San Antonio where we build the Toyota Tundra and Tacoma, to factories in Ohio and Michigan and other parts of this country. It’s gonna jeopardize jobs throughout this state and throughout the United States of America, for that matter. It’s gonna increase prices at our grocery stores even higher. And it’s worsening a supply chain problem that we already had. And this didn’t have to happen.”

O’Rourke goes on to point out that Abbott’s inspections only check on things like tire pressure and how the engine runs. In fact, Abbott’s inspectors are not even permitted to look inside the cargo area for drugs or human trafficking. And this boondoggle was also addressed by Jen Psaki, who issued the following statement from the White House:

“Governor Abbott’s unnecessary and redundant inspections of trucks transiting ports of entry between Texas and Mexico are causing significant disruptions to the food and automobile supply chains, delaying manufacturing, impacting jobs, and raising prices for families in Texas and across the country.” […]

“[T]rucks are facing lengthy delays exceeding 5 hours at some border crossings and commercial traffic has dropped by as much as 60 percent. […] Abbott’s actions are impacting people’s jobs, and the livelihoods of hardworking American families. “

All of this just makes it more clear that Abbott and his Republican comrades are only interested in maligning their political foes and damaging the country so that they can blame the harm on Democrats. And rather than working on plausible solutions to the nation’s problems, they orchestrate publicity stunts designed to deceive the public and get them more time on Fox News.

That is not an agenda that the people of Texas, or America, should support. And, hopefully, they will come out in historic numbers in November to vote against the Republicans who are so determinedly working against the people.

UPDATE: Abbott has already caved in and canceled his “enhanced” inspections, likely due to the avalanche of criticism he received from both Democrats and Republicans.
