Are Trump’s Nazi Videos and Hateful Posts Why Truth Social Lost $327 Million and 19% of Users?

The bad news for Donald Trump is piling up as his trial for falsifying business records and election interference (sometimes known as the “hush money” trial is winding down. On Tuesday Trump’s defense counsel rested their case after calling only two witnesses, one of which was immensely beneficial – to the prosecutors.

Donald Trump calls for a "Unified Reich"

Compounding Trump’s troubles is the quarterly financial report from his Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG), the company that operates his floundering social media scam, Truth Social. The report notes that…

“Trump Media & Technology Group lost more than $300 million during the first quarter and generated very little revenue, the owner of Truth Social announced in a press release Monday. The results will raise additional questions about the multi-billion dollar valuation on the newly public company, which is majority owned by former President Donald Trump.” […] “The company generated just $770,500 of revenue, marking the second-straight quarter where its revenue totaled less than $1 million.” […]

“In April, the conservative-friendly social network experienced a 19% year-over-year drop in average daily active US users on iOS and Android to just 113,000, according to market research firm Similarweb. Rival X (formerly known as Twitter) had more than 34 million users on iOS and Android.”

In the just first quarter of 2024 TMTG lost $327 million on revenue of less than $1 million. Which makes its stock valuation of $6 billion something of a joke. What’s more, Truth Social lost nearly 20% of their active users in the past year. That loss comes during an election year when interest in Trump by his cult followers ought to be at a peak.

So what would account for these significant losses of cash, advertisers, and users? Perhaps it has something to do with Truth Social’s primary (only) reason for existing, Donald Trump. He posts relentlessly every day to his glassy-eyed disciples. And those posts are generally hostile attacks, infantile insults, and forecasts of doom, sprinkled with a hefty dose of narcissistic self-exaltation and hero worship. Maybe that isn’t the best sort of content to sustain an audience.

An example of the messaging that Trump regularly engages in was a video he posted Monday that asked the burning questions: “What’s next for America?” and “What happens after Donald Trump wins?” The video (now deleted) answered those questions with images of newspaper headlines including one that heralded the Trumpian future as being “DRIVEN BY THE CREATION OF A UNIFIED REICH.”

Trump has often exhibited his affinity for Nazi principles and rhetoric. He famously dined at his Mar-a-Lago bunker with the avowed neo-Nazi, Nicholas Fuentes. He praised racist Nazi protesters in Charlottesville, Virgina, as being “very fine people.” He uses language taken from Hitler’s speeches that refers to immigrants as “vermin” who are “poisoning the blood” of America.

Trump’s response to having been criticized for this video never bothered to condemn it’s vile views. He just blamed it on an anonymous staffer. Here is that response, along with with the thoughts of President Biden’s spokesperson, as reported by Politico

Trump spokesperson Karoline Leavitt: “This was not a campaign video, it was created by a random account online and reposted by a staffer who clearly did not see the word, while the President was in court.”

Biden spokesperson James Singer: Donald Trump is not playing games; he is telling America exactly what he intends to do if he regains power: rule as a dictator over a ‘Unified Reich.'”

You’ll notice that Trump didn’t apologize for or renounce the video. He just slithered out of taking any responsibility for it. Because he doesn’t disagree with its content. He’s just afraid that getting caught might hamper his authoritarian aspirations to reoccupy the White House. That’s all he cares really about. Which is why it is imperative that he be soundly defeated in November. He needs to be as big a failure as a politician as he is as a tech mogul.

Adderall J. Trump Thinks He Can ‘Demand’ Biden Take a Drug Test Before the Debates – Or What?

This week President Biden challenged Donald Trump to a couple of debates, which forced Trump to agree, despite complaining about the hosting networks, and whining about conditions that would hamper his reality TV style grandstanding, such as the absence of a live audience, and the ability of moderators to cut the microphone if the candidate exceeded his allotted time.

Donald Trump Angry

The Trump camp, however, is pretending not to be satisfied with the two debates now scheduled. Trump’s daughter-in-lawlessness, Lara, who he put in charge of the Republican National Committee, has asked for a total of five debates, despite insisting that that are all somehow “rigged” in favor of Biden. Just like the elections and the trials, and everything else that Trump is afraid that he’s losing. Also, it is common for the candidate who is behind to want more debates. So that tells us something about where Trump really thinks he stands.

SEE THIS: Lara Trump Tells Fox News that She Wants 5 Debates with Biden – That She Says are All Rigged

On Friday Trump left his son’s high school graduation early to give a speech before the Minnesota Republican Party. The speech was typically littered with the same lies and infantile insults that comprise every speech he gives. But this one also included an especially repugnant remark that he regards, in his perverse perspective, as proper political commentary. He raged that…

“We have Fake Tapper, but, you know, I just want to debate this guy. But you know, I’m going to demand a drug test too, by the way. I am. No, I really am. I don’t want him coming in like the State of the Union, he was high as a kite. I said, ‘Is that Joe up there?’ And by the end of the evening, he’s like, well, he was exhausted, right? No, we’re going to demand a drug test.”

Indeed, Trump did accuse Biden of being under the influence during his State of the Union speech. That’s because, after spending weeks insisting that Biden “can’t put two sentences together,” Biden delivered a speech that was universally well received and described as “fiery” and “forceful.” So Trump and his confederates had to shift gears from taunts of “Sleepy Joe” to malign the President as “Jacked-Up Joe.” Which is actually a much cooler name.

MORE HERE: Trump’s Live-Bleating of Biden’s State of the Union Address Was Predictably Petty and Pathetic

However, Trump’s promise to “demand” that Biden be given a drug test is just another display of his pathetic impotence. On what authority does he think he can issue such a demand? And how exactly does he think he can force it to be carried out? And what are the consequences when Biden refuses? Will the notoriously cowardly Trump use that as excuse to back out of the debates himself? Just as he did from all of the GOP primary debates.

Trump doesn’t bother to address any of that in his asinine ultimatum. Nor does he mention anything about whether he would also submit to a drug test. After all, he is the one who recently confused Nancy Pelosi with Nikki Haley, and thought that he was running against Barack Obama, and rambled incoherently about the fictional cannibal Hannibal Lector.

Not to mention that Trump has been caught falling asleep several times at his own criminal trial. Which makes one wonder if he could remain awake throughout a debate with Biden.

Never mind that Trump also said that “Crooked Joe Biden is the WORST debater I have ever faced!” Which is a curious thing to brag about after losing two prior debates with Biden, as well as the 2020 election. But maybe Trump will demand next that all future debates be hosted by Fox News or Pravda. That should help to win something.

UPDATE: Trump also wanted Hillary Clinton tested for drugs in 2016. He’s regurgitating his moldy oldies. What’s next? Will he demand Biden’s birth certificate?

Fox News Blames a MAGA Meltdown in the Republican Controlled Congress on President Biden

This week the nation was treated to the spectacle of a throng of Republican members of Congress abandoning their duties in Washington to cheer in the bleachers for their Dear Leader, Donald Trump, in New York. He is there being tried for election interference, falsifying business records, and paying hush money to a porn star. And Republicans in Congress had to be there to give him emotional support. These are your tax dollars at work, America.

Fox News, Joe Biden, Fake News

Upon their return to D.C., these prodigal congresspersons were called into a late night hearing of the House Oversight Committee to consider a preposterous motion to hold Attorney General Merrick Garland in contempt of Congress. His “offense” is refusing to give the Committee some audio tapes that they intended to exploit for political purposes. They would have been better off staying in New York, fawning over Trump, and trying to intimidate the court.

SEE THIS: MAGA Mike Johnson Announces His Intention to Interfere with the Criminal Investigation of Trump

It didn’t take long for the hearing to devolve into the sort of chaos one would expect from irascible juveniles. The verbal melee began when Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA-MAGA) made a derogatory remark about the appearance of Democratic Rep. Jasmine Crockett. It escalated from there as Crocket moved to have Greene’s words stricken from the record, which caused Greene to insult her intelligence. And throughout the ruckus chairman James Comer demonstrated that he has absolutely no ability to manage the proceedings.

As embarrassing as all of that ought to have been for Comer and his GOP confederates, he got a total reprieve from Fox News, where the blame for it all somehow rested squarely on the shoulders of President Biden. Of course, Biden had nothing whatsoever to do with it. But that didn’t stop Fox’s Emily Compagno from pointing her fingers at Biden, saying…

“Why shouldn’t it be that the highest standard, the highest decorum, exists in this most sacred building, that they claim was breached on January 6th in the most horrific and atrocious of crimes. Will they represent the sacred and the sanctity that that building deserves? Honor that.”

“I see this as reflection of the complete erosion that our entire legislative body has become. You can wear what you want. You can say what you want. You can trash each other. You can drink. You can have sex on the dais. You can bring coke into the…This entire thing has become an absolute devolved zoo, heightened under this administration that promised us on the way in there would be unity. “

Compagno is clearly upset at the disrespect shown for the institution by this imbroglio. And it was particularly notable that she referenced the January 6th insurrection that was incited by Trump. Never mind that she and her colleagues at Fox News have relentlessly defended the insurrectionists that they call “hostages,” and characterized the riots as peaceful protests by patriots.

However, Compagno wasn’t through humiliating herself. She went on to assert that the blame for the bickering in Congress belonged to Biden, whose aspirations for unity were unfulfilled because Republicans are boorish crybabies who can’t behave like adults.

Not only was Biden completely unassociated with the fracas that went on in the House, the responsibility for the “complete erosion” of the body into “an absolute devolved zoo” rests entirely with the the Republican Party. They have held the majority for the past year and half and, based on their record, what took place Thursday night was completely predictable. After all, they can’t find bipartisan unity because they can’t even be unified within their own caucus.

The Republicans have been fighting among themselves non-stop. They took 15 votes to elect Speaker Kevin McCarthy. Then they ousted him nine months later. And some of them are now trying to oust the new Speaker Mike Johnson. In the meantime, they have succeeded in becoming the least productive Congress in decades.

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

Compagno lamented that she is “deeply disappointed” in the Congress, and that “They have not earned my respect.” But she can’t acknowledge that it is her own party that has failed so pitifully. So she tries to deflect the blame in the most awkward and irrational manner imaginable.

Which is precisely what one would expect from today’s MAGA Republicans. It is no longer a political party. It is a cult. Therefore, reality must be rewritten to conform to the cult’s perceptions and doctrine. And that bastardization of reality is the purpose of Fox News, where allegiance to Trump and “alternative facts” rule the day.

Lara Trump Tells Fox News that She Wants 5 Debates with Biden – That She Says are All Rigged

This week President Biden accepted two offers to debate Donald Trump. Shortly thereafter, Trump accepted Biden’s challenge, although not without griping about the hosting networks and some of the rules. The debates will take place on June 27 on CNN, and September 10 on ABC, providing ample time for voters to observe the candidates as they face off on live TV.

Joe Biden, Donald Trump

It is customary for presidential candidates to have a couple of debates, and another between the vice-presidential candidates. This year however, we have a unique situation wherein both candidates have already occupied the White House and, thus, are not exactly unknown quantities who require more exposure in order to be recognized or to unveil their political platforms. These two candidates have been sparring publicly non-stop for four years already.

SEE THIS: Trump Calls Biden ‘the WORST Debater’ Despite Biden Crushing Him in the 2020 Debates and Election

Nevertheless, Trump’s daughter-in-lawlessness, Lara Trump – who was also appointed to head the Republican National Committee (RNC) by her Sugardaddy-in-law – isn’t satisfied. And she made her objections known to Sean Hannity on Fox News, where she spends most of her time, rather than performing the duties of an RNC chair. Lara whined to Hannity that…

“What Donald Trump has said is that he wants more debates. […] Let’s do one every single month leading up to this election cause we need these two men on a stage. […] We need to hear from Donald Trump about his vision for the future of this country. […] It’s rigged so heavily in Joe Biden’s favor, but everything always is.”

That’s right! Lara wants at least five debates between Biden and Trump. Even though she believes that that they are all rigged in Biden’s favor. It’s hard to imagine what she thinks would be accomplished by that, other than providing more airtime for Trump to lie and rant incoherently, while boring the crap out of viewers. Does she really think that Trump needs more time to lay out his alleged “vision for the future,” which consists mainly of exalting himself as a cult leader who demands the unflinching loyalty of dictators like his heroes Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong Un?

And let’s face it, with more airtime Trump would only engage in more attacks on Biden and more infantile insults on his other perceived enemies. He doesn’t actually have a “vision” that is based on policies that could positively impact the American people. Lara didn’t even present any in her spiel to Hannity. She just complained that Hollywood, and the music industry, and the media, and the judicial system, are all against Trump. Do we need five debates to make those annoying complaints more apparent?

Another curious part of Lara’s plea for more debates is that ordinarily the candidates who are leading want fewer debates. That was even Trump’s reasoning for refusing to participate in any of the Republican primary debates. He insisted that because he was beating all of his challengers, he didn’t have to show up to debate them. Apparently it wasn’t necessary then for him to reveal his alleged vision, or to contrast it with his opponents.

So does Trump’s craving for more debates against Biden indicate that he is afraid that he is losing to Biden? Does he have internal polling that shows him behind or losing ground? Or is he just posturing for effect and doesn’t intend to show up for those, or any of the debates? It would not be the first time that he has chickened out. In fact, it’s pretty much his standard operating position. Lying, whining, and chickening out are the Trump brand.

Trump Calls Biden ‘the WORST Debater’ Despite Biden Crushing Him in the 2020 Debates and Election

The 2024 election season has just hit another milestone with the candidates both agreeing to a couple of debates. The first will be on CNN on June 27, in Atlanta, Georgia, where Donald Trump is currently awaiting trial for election interference. The second will be on ABC on September 10, location to be determined.

Biden, Trump Debate

These debates will be a departure from the traditional events that have been hosted by the non-partisan Commission on Presidential Debates for the past thirty years. However, the hosting networks have agreed to some rules that President Biden – and most viewers – will appreciate, and that Trump will whine about.

First of all, there will be no live audience. That is generally a distraction that interrupts the flow of the discourse with the predictable and useless outbursts of the candidates’ invited supporters. Trump has already complained about that provision saying that he preferred an audience “for excitement purposes.” So as usual, he is behaving like the reality TV game show host that he is, and a narcissist who craves constant adoration.

Secondly, there will be strict adherence to time limits and an ability by the moderator to cut the microphone when a candidate exceeds his time. Once again, that’s a rule that is likely to bother Trump who is incapable of controlling himself. During debates with Biden in 2020, he had to be told repeatedly to stop interrupting, including by Biden who eventually was so annoyed he just told Trump “Shut up, man!”

After Biden announced his acceptance of these debates, Trump responded in a manner that is typical for him. His response was littered with lies and insults. And most of it was a tedious repetition of the same lies and insults he has been disgorging for years. Which says more about Trump’s defective mental state than anything else.

For instance, Trump started off regurgitating his old line that “Crooked Joe Biden is the WORST debater I have ever faced – He can’t put two sentences together!” Which raises some interesting questions. Such as why, then, did he lose to Biden in both of the 2020 debates (debate one poll – – debate two poll), as well as the general election? Is Trump bragging that he lost to someone who can’t put two sentences together?

Trump also said that “Crooked is also the WORST President in the history of the United States, by far.” But a recent poll of presidential historians puts Biden at #14, and Trump dead last. Then Trump unleashes a flurry of falsehoods about Biden’s record as President, including the flagrant absurdity that Biden has an “open border” policy and favors inflation and high taxes.

In point of fact, Biden’s stewardship of the economy has resulted in lowering inflation more than any of the other major economies of the world. And while he does want to restore the higher tax bracket to corporations and the wealthy, he has proposed lowering taxes for middle and lower income households.

The contrast between how Biden and Trump addressed the matter of forthcoming debates could not be more revealing. Trump is consumed by hostilities and delusions. And the deficiencies that he attributes to Biden are more likely projections of what he fears in himself. So although he has called Biden “Sleepy Joe,” it is Trump who has been slumbering during his criminal trial. Could he remain awake for the duration of a debate?

Biden, meanwhile, is calm and possesses a good sense of humor, even in the face of Trump’s animosity. Which was apparent in the video he posted challenging Trump to the debates…

Fox News Host is APPALLED that President Biden Wants to Make it Easier for ALL Americans to Vote

The Republican Party, in concert with their aspiring authoritarian Dear Leader, Donald Trump, has long been fiercely opposed to the basic tenets of democracy. They impose flagrantly gerrymandered redistricting, engage in overt voter suppression tactics, oppose early and mail-in voting, and they even staged a violent coup attempt to prevent Congress from certifying President Biden’s election on January 6, 2021.

Click here to Tweet this article

Fox News, Joe Biden, Fake News

Naturally, the MAGA cult’s Ministry of Propaganda, Fox News, has been the media partner for these anti-American efforts to illegally and unethically interfere with the free and fair administration of elections. Their primary objective is to insure that the GOP candidate is declared the winner, whether or not they got the most votes. And they intend to secure that objective by any means necessary.

SEE THIS: Trump Blows Blatantly Racist Dog Whistles to Motivate MAGA Voter Intimidation Squads in 2024

On Fox News Wednesday night, Jesse Watters provided additional proof of the nefarious blueprint for the right’s theft of elections. He floated a crackpot conspiracy theory that it’s Democrats who are plotting to skew election outcomes by – get this – encouraging people to vote.

“Biden’s using tax dollars to register Democrats to vote in the election. You say ‘Wait Jessie.’ He wants everyone to register to vote. No, no, no. He’s targeting people who interact with the federal government. People who are dependent on government assistance. Families who get food stamps. Families in the free lunch program. Families who get free health care. Homeless people. Is this a demographic you’d consider traditionally Republican? I don’t know. Maybe.”

OH NOES! Biden is concocting schemes to make it easier for millions of Americans to vote. And notice that every example that Watters lists is about lower income “families.” Apparently he thinks that “those” people shouldn’t be voting. Like most Republicans, he believes that voting should be reserved for rich, white landowners.

As if that weren’t bad enough, Watters wonders whether the family profiles in his rant would be considered “traditionally Republican.” Why? Is that his criteria for enabling easy access to voting? What’s more, Watters appears think that only Democrats benefit from government programs that provide assistance with food and healthcare.

He’s wrong. Many conservative residents of red states receive such benefits. And many of them are even Fox News viewers. Furthermore, those programs also provide additional benefits for the nation by putting funds into the hands of consumers who will spend them on goods and services, stimulating the economy.

Consequently, any opposition to the voter registration initiatives that Watters is complaining about would likely backfire on him and his GOP confederates. It would alienate the millions of Americans in rural districts who rely on the government aid that offends Watters and his Republican pals. It would also be a risky political move considering that polls show that a majority of voters want such programs increased, not cut.

So the more that Watters and Fox News and the Trumpists whine about cutting these programs, and preventing recipients from voting, the more voters will be likely to support Democrats. The American people know who is on their side. And it isn’t the party that wants to cut Social Security, Medicare, and other programs that give families a chance to thrive.

Fox News Reports on Trump’s Wisconsin Jobs Con Job, But Leaves Out Biden’s Booming Success

In July of 2017, Donald Trump made a big deal out of an announcement that Foxconn, a Taiwanese electronics manufacturer, would be building a new factory in Wisconsin. This project was touted by Trump as “the eighth wonder of the world,” that would create 13,000 new jobs.

Click here to Tweet this article

Fox News, Joe Biden

Unfortunately, like most Trump promises, this one evaporated into the ether. But not before costing the state of Wisconsin and the communities where the plant was supposed to be built hundreds of millions of dollars in preparations that were all for naught. That outcome is consistent with the historic failure of Trump’s jobs record as president. Contrast that with President Biden’s record of historic job creation.

SEE THIS: The Biden-Harris Campaign Trolls Trump and Fox News on Truth Social with ‘Blowout’ Jobs Report

On Tuesday Biden announced that the vacant land that was supposed to be the site of the Foxconn project would actually be put to use. In a new agreement with Microsoft, a factory manufacturing A.I. technology products would be built producing thousands of new jobs. It was made possible by Biden’s passage of his Infrastructure bill and the CHIPS Act that have already created millions of American jobs. Biden spoke about the new project with a sly nod to Trump’s failure saying that…

“He came here with your senator, Ron Johnson, literally holding a golden shovel, promising to build the eighth wonder of the world. You kidding me? Look what happened. They dug a hole with those golden shovels, and then they fell into it.”

On Tuesday morning Fox News had a brief discussion about these developments. And the “Curvy Couch” potatoes of Fox and Friends actually brushed the margins of some factual reporting.

Steve Doocy: So Peter, this new A.I. Microsoft thing – $3 billion dollars, big job creator – that’s in Racine. Isn’t that the same town that Foxconn said – I don’t know, five or six years ago – we’re gonna build a big plant and they never did?
Peter Doocy: Yes, and that was a huge Trump announcement back then. And he said the factory was gonna be the eighth wonder of world. But then Foxconn decided to really scale back their plans and the land is still available. So Microsoft is going in.
Steve Doocy: It’s gonna be good for those people.

It’s notable that Fox News even brought up the subject. Ordinarily, any news that might reflect positively on Biden goes directly into the Fox dumpster. So perhaps some gratitude should be shown for bothering to talk about it.

However, the Fox crew left out some significant details. They described the failed Foxconn project as one that “Foxconn decided to really scale back.” They never bothered to attribute the failure to Trump and his incompetence in not securing more assurances that the project would be completed. They also never bothered to even mention Biden’s name or give him credit for helping to secure the new agreement with Microsoft.

Other than that, it’s probably the best that could be hoped for from Fox News. At least they didn’t blame Biden for the Foxconn failure and credit Trump with the Microsoft project. Every so often some truthful information leaks through the avalanche of lies that Fox produces.

SEE THIS: On Fox News Jessica Tarlov Summarizes the Success of Bidenomics that the Media Refuses to Cover

In the meantime, we can expect Republicans in the state, including Sen. Johnson, to take credit for themselves at the groundbreakings, despite having voted against the bills in Congress that made it possible. And Fox News will invite them on to brag about it. In other words, business as usual for the GOP and Fox News.

Wannabe Dictator Donald Trump Accuses President Biden of Running a ‘Gestapo Administration’

The variety and severity of psychoses observed on Donald Trump should long ago have been determined to be sufficient to disqualify him from serving as president of the United States. Hell, they should be sufficient to disqualify him from serving the lunch crowd at Appleby’s. His malignant narcissism alone is responsible for his raging hostility and delusional self-exaltation.

Donald Trump Tyrant Dictator

Trump has also been known to exhibit symptoms of psychological projection, a defense mechanism wherein negative thoughts and feelings about oneself are attributed to others. For instance, when Trump maligns President Biden as “Sleepy Joe,” or Ted Cruz as “Lying’ Ted,” he is effectively confessing to his own lethargy and dishonesty.

SEE THIS: Terrified Trump Calls Special Counsel Jack Smith a ‘Criminal’ and Demands that He Be Arrested

On Saturday Trump supplied one of his most flagrant examples of projection. It came during a speech before a group of wealthy Republican donors at his Mar-a-Lago bunker. These speeches, and his cult rallies, are what Trump considers “campaigning.” He never actually engages with ordinary citizens to solicit their support. His audiences are always assemblies of pre-vetted adorers.

These sorts of staged public appearances allow Trump to ramble incoherently without concern for facts, civility, or anything resembling sanity. On this occasion Trump lashed out at his favorite target, President Biden. And as usual, his criticisms were merely a barrage of infantile insults intended solely to smear Biden without any association to reality. Leading his verbal vilification was an utterly inappropriate reference to Nazi Germany. As reported by NBC News (via Business Insider)…

“‘These people are running a Gestapo administration,’ Trump said, according to audio of the luncheon provided to NBC News. ‘And it’s the only thing they have. And it’s the only way they’re going to win in their opinion.'”

The obvious projection in this commentary is that Trump himself has promised to be “a dictator on day one,” should he return to his occupation of the White House. He has also threatened to suppress the media, terminate the Constitution, and stage rigged trials against his political foes.

MORE HERE: Trump Cloddishly Dodges Hannity’s Softball Questions About Whether He Would Be a Dictator

Biden, meanwhile, has never exhibited any of the tendencies that could be associated with the authoritarianism that Trump clearly aspires to. Among the faults that Trump enumerated in his speech were several that don’t apply to Biden in any way, but which describe Trump perfectly. Textbook projection. Such as that Biden…

  • Is the worst president in the history of our country.
    Nope, that’s Trump according to a survey of presidential historians.
  • He’s grossly incompetent.
    See Trump’s deadly COVID mismanagement. As well as his economic and foreign policies.
  • He’s crooked as hell.
    Trump is currently facing 88 felony charges.
  • He’s the Manchurian candidate.
    Trump has no idea what a “Manchurian Candidate” means.
  • He accepts massive amounts of money from China, from Russia, from Ukraine and many other countries.
    Again, that’s Trump, with actual receipts from his benefactors. He has literally bragged about it.

Trump’s references to the Gestapo are offensive, not just because they are so blatantly false, but because they trivialize the actual atrocities committed by the Nazis. And he can’t cite a single thing that would connect Biden to such horrors. However, Trump has a well documented affinity for tyrants such as Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong Un, and Xi Jinping. He boasts about how well he gets along with them and praises (and envies) what he calls their strength.

What’s more, Trump frequently uses Hitler’s rhetoric in his speeches, calling his adversaries “vermin” who are “poisoning the blood of the country.” It has even been reported by his former wife, Ivana, that he kept a book of Hitler’s speeches by his bedside. And this is the guy who says that Biden is running a Gestapo administration? Really?

Terrified Trump Calls Special Counsel Jack Smith a ‘Criminal’ and Demands that He Be Arrested

The legal quagmire that is engulfing Donald Trump has been a source of debilitating anxiety for him as he spends his days in court scowling and sobbing that he is a victim of meanies in the justice system who are out to get him because he is so universally beloved. And at every opportunity he falsely accuses his “persecutors” of being controlled by the all-powerful President Biden who is somehow also a babbling incompetent.

Trump Fear

When you’re admitting that you’re losing to someone that you malign as so racked with senility that he “can’t put two sentences together,” you’re saying more about yourself and your own weaknesses than that of your adversary. But That’s what Trump is doing every time he castigates Biden. It’s also true about Trump’s attacks on others he fears and/or hates, such as special counsel Jack Smith.

MORE HERE: Trump’s Lawyer on Fox News Accuses Jack Smith of Contempt of Court – For Doing His Job

It’s notable that Trump never defends himself with actual evidence of his innocence. Rather, he just lashes out at his foes with infantile insults and nicknames, or repeats ad nauseum his insistence that all the charges against him are hoaxes. On Saturday morning Trump posted some comments on his floundering social media scam, Truth Social, that reveal just how desperately he fears the fates that await him at the hands of the law.

Specifically, on this occasion, Trump is once again aiming his noxious wrath at Smith. In one post Trump shouts in all caps “ARREST DERANGED JACK SMITH. HE IS A CRIMINAL!” Trump’s “proof” comes in the form of a link to an article by an ultra-rightist website that asserts that Smith “tampered” with evidence. Trump elaborated on that baseless allegation in another post where he wrote that…

“It has always been clear that the ‘Documents Case’ is nothing but an Election Interference Scam concocted by Crooked Joe Biden, Deranged Jack Smith, and their Hacks and Thugs. Now, Deranged Jack has admitted in a filing in front of Judge Cannon to what I have been saying happened since the Illegal RAID on my home, Mar-a-Lago, in Palm Beach, Florida – That he and his team committed blatant Evidence Tampering by mishandling the very Boxes they used as a pretext to bring this Fake Case. These deeply Illegal actions by the Politicized ‘Persecutors’ mandate that this whole Witch Hunt be DROPPED IMMEDIATELY. END THE ‘BOXES HOAXES.’ MAGA2024!”

There is a lot of bull manure to unpack in that posting. Let’s start with the fact that Smith never admitted to any evidence tampering. Also, there was nothing illegal about the search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago bunker. There was a lawful search warrant obtained after Trump repeatedly lied to the FBI about the classified documents he had stolen. Also, Biden had nothing whatsoever to do with any of it.

What’s more, the allegations that Trump is making are twisted misrepresentations of reality. A more factual account was reported by Politico who said that…

“Special counsel Jack Smith’s team acknowledged Friday that some evidence in the prosecution of former President Donald Trump for hoarding classified documents at his Florida home may not be in the same sequence FBI agents found it when they swept into the Mar-a-Lago compound with a search warrant in August 2022.”

In short, the contents of some of the boxes were not in the same order as the digital catalogues that were created. The verified explanation was that some of the contents had shifted during transport. In a few other cases some temporary placeholders were not removed when the permanent cover sheets were supplied. But in every case, the very same documents were in every box. Nothing was missing, and nothing had been altered. It was all minor errors on indexes that had no effect whatsoever on the evidence or the case.

So that’s what Trump is frantically yammering about that he believes warrants the arrest of Smith, and the dropping of all charges. It’s a position consistent with his aspirations of dictatorship, wherein he can incarcerate anyone he wants without justification, and be granted “total immunity” for any crime he feels like committing. Of course, all of that would be a travesty of justice and thoroughly anti-American. And it’s his fantasy of a tyrannical reign that he must never be allowed to achieve.

WHUT? MAGA Media is Ranting About Biden Eating Salad and the Loch Ness Monster on Trump’s Jury

It must be impossibly difficult for Donald Trump’s disinformation brigades to keep up their non-stop smear campaigns. After all, how often can they regurgitate the same lame and libelous laments about “rigged” elections and trials, and desperately infantile insults aimed at President Biden and other Democrats?

Fox News, Joe Biden, Fake News

The answer to that question is apparently that there is no limit to how often the Trump cult can rehash tired tirades that they have already disseminated to death. The inevitable result of that obsessive overuse of perpetual peevishness is that the propaganda purveyors wind up descending ever deeper into the depths of depravity and absurdity.

FOR INSTANCE: Fox News Floats Conspiracy Theory that Biden is Plotting to Assault Trump to Avoid Debating Him

On Tuesday morning the MAGA media was called to arms to defend Dear Leader Trump and to malign Biden. Unfortunately for them, they had nothing of substance – or even sanity – with which to pursue their missions. So they puffed up their chests and went into a battle of wits entirely unarmed.

First we have Eric Bolling of Newsmax. He is the former Fox News host who was fired for sexual misconduct and rescued by the lower tier wingnut network. Bolling delivered a monologue based on his perverse perception of Biden having a perfectly normal meal at the White House Correspondents Dinner last weekend. What Bolling saw, however, wasn’t remotely related to reality…

“Here is the President of the United States, the man with the nuclear codes at his fingertips, grappling with a bowl of lettuce. He can barely feed himself. […] The man who is going to push back on Russia, China, North Korea? Are you kidding me? He can’t even take a bite of his own salad. This man’s not suited for the job for four more minutes, let alone four more years.”

It’s remarkable that Bolling can claim that Biden wasn’t able to “take a bite of his own salad” while simultaneously playing a video of Biden taking taking a bite of his own salad. It was right there in the split screen next to him. It appears that Bolling was upset that Biden didn’t shovel the salad into his mouth the way that Trump devours a bucket of KFC. In MAGA Land behaving in a civilized manner is evidence of senility. But ravenous gorging is proof of manhood.

Not to be outdone in the deranged department, Jesse Watters of Fox News did a commentary on Trump having been charged and fined for contempt of court following his violation of the gag order that the judge had to impose on him because he wouldn’t stop attacking court personnel, witnesses, and jurors…

“They are threatening to throw the Republican nominee for president in jail for talking. For talking during an election. Now I am not a lawyer. Just play one on TV, but according to the gag you could have the Loch Ness monster as a juror and Trump can’t say the Loch Ness is real. That’s a thousand dollars. Boom, right there. It’s not fair. It’s unconstitutional. And it goes against everything that this country stands for.”

LOCH HIM UP! First of all, Trump is not being threatened with jail for talking. He is being penalized for violating a court order to refrain from intimidating people. He can talk all he wants. In fact, he rarely stops. But he cannot engage in threats or harassment.

Watters seems to be dead set on retaining his role as the stupidest person on Fox News. Which judging from these remarks, he has nothing to worry about. He also doesn’t need to remind people that he isn’t a lawyer. Especially when he drags the poor, unsuspecting Loch Ness monster into a discussion about the jurors on the Trump trial.

Watters seems to think it’s okay for a defendant to malign jurors based on the scales of their skin. And he thinks that attacking jurors of monster-origin is what this country stands for. Does anyone have the slightest idea WTF he’s talking about?

The rants by Bolling and Watters are asininity on the scale of MAGA’s prior attacks on Biden for eating ice cream cones, or the false allegations that he is plotting to confiscate household appliances, or that the eclipse was a Democratic plot to sneak migrants into America. It seems that they just keep getting more and more preposterous every day. And that aint easy. So give them credit. It’s something that they really have to work at.
