Trump’s Truthless Temper Tantrum Over the Midterm Election Results is Just So Trumpy

As the 2022 midterm election morning dawned, Donald Trump could be found up bright and early yammering about election fraud that didn’t exist. His accusations were especially bizarre since they were aimed at the Republicans who were running the Arizona election. So he thinks that Arizona’s GOP officials were committing fraud in order to help … Democrats?

Donald Trump Circling the Drain

Later that evening, Trump changed gears to try to take credit for Republican successes in the election results. Despite the utter evaporation of anything resembling a “red wave,” he posted a comment on his floundering social media scam, Truth social, that boasted about an electoral triumph that existed only in his warped imagination. He wrote

“174 wins and 9 losses, A GREAT EVENING, and the Fake News Media, together with their partner in crime family, the Democrats, are doing everything possible to play it down. Amazing job by some really fantastic candidates!”

So let’s add a little reality to Trump’s feeble fantasies and media bashing. First of all, Trump actually endorsed more than 300 candidates. So he’s cherry picking what he wants to include in his post-election analysis. What’s more, the vast majority of his endorsements were for candidates in safe Republican seats who were expected to win. We can’t know which nine losses he’s referring to in his post because he doesn’t identify them. However, he had at least 22 to choose from in this, still incomplete, list of actual losers…

Gubernatorial candidates: Lee Zeldin (New York), Doug Mastriano (Pennsylvania) Geoff Diehl (Massachusetts), Dan Cox (Maryland), Tudor Dixon (Michigan), Tim Michels (Wisconsin), Darren Bailey (Illinois), and Mark Ronchetti (New Mexico).

Senate candidates: Mehmet Oz (Pennsylvania), Don Bolduc (New Hampshire), Joe O’Dea (Colorado), Leora Levy (Connecticut)

House candidates: J.R. Majewski (Ohio), Karoline Leavitt (New Hampshire), Yesli Vega (Virginia), Ken Calvert (California), Bo Hines ( North Carolina’), Steve Chabot (Ohio), Jim Bognet (Pennsylvania), Gesiotto Gilbert (Ohio), Robert Burns (New Hampshire), John Gibbs (Michigan)

That’s 22 losers, with many races still uncalled, including such significant potential GOP defeats as Herschel Walker (Georgia), Blake Masters (Arizona), Kari Lake (Arizona), Kelly Tshibaka (Alaska), Adam Laxalt (Nevada) and Ron Johnson (Wisconsin). [UPDATE: Blake Masters, Kari Lake, and Adam Laxalt lost]

Perhaps the race that will hurt Trump the most is the one for New York Attorney General, where his arch nemesis, Letitia James, won reelection. Trump has been bad-mouthing her for months, accusing her of being corrupt, biased, and racist (she’s Black), and calling her “Peekaboo” for reasons no one knows. He’s actually racked with fear due to the $250 million civil suit James filed alleging business fraud that could wind up shutting down his Trump Organization and prohibiting his crime from doing business in the state.

To be sure, there were disappointments for Democrats. But considering that historically the party in power during the midterms suffers an average congressional loss of about 22 seats, Democrats should be pretty satisfied that they held their losses to single digits. They likely retained their Senate majority and may have done the same in the House.

If Trump thinks that these results suggest a positive environment for him to run for president again in 2024, he’s more deranged than previously thought. So it will be interesting to see what his “big announcement” is going to be on November 15. If he does announce his candidacy, his GOP confederates may be less than enthused after seeing his fabled king-making prowess fail so spectacularly. Although Trump will remain blissfully enamored with himself and his divine infallibility.

When Trump was asked in a NewsNation interview about the election outcome to say “How much of that will be because of Donald Trump,” he replied that “I think if they win, I should get all the credit. If they lose, I should not be blamed at all.” That’s consistent with his refusal to take responsibility for everything from COVID-19 deaths, to the deadly insurrection at the Capitol, to his theft of highly sensitive national security documents from the White House, and more. Trump will always find someone else to blame.

That said, Trump did post something on election night that was unarguably true, even if he didn’t know it. He wrote that the “Same thing is happening with Voter Fraud as happened in 2020???” Indeed. There was nothing significant that happened with voter fraud in 2020, and the same is true for 2022.

Another similarity between the two election cycles is that Trump proved to be an impotent force in politics and a pathetic loser who will shift blame to others rather than take any responsibility. No matter how dishonest or hurtful. And naturally one of his most predictable targets is last night’s big winner, Nancy Pelosi…

Trump Viciously Attacks Judge for Assigning Monitor to Prevent His Continuing Criminal Acts

There is nothing that Donald Trump hates more than being held accountable for his notoriously bad behavior, whether personally immoral or publicly criminal. But despite his aversion to being punished for his wrongdoings, he persists in committing them and complains when there are well deserved consequences.

Donald Trump Angry

What set Trump off was that Judge Arthur Engoron, who is presiding over the civil suit filed by the New York Attorney General, Letitia James, ruled in favor of assigning an independent monitor to whom Trump would have to report in order to stop him from committing any further fraudulent business practices. Trump couldn’t suppress his seething anger at the judge, or at the thought of the law finding him liable. And it wasn’t the first time…

RELATED: Stable Genius? Trump Maniacally Attacks the Judge Presiding Over His Fraud Trial in New York

On Friday morning Trump demonstrated his hair-trigger hostility for the rule of law by posting a hysterical comment on his floundering social media scam, Truth Social. Trump whined that Judge Engoron is “A Radical Left Lunatic Judge” who is “dedicated largely to defaming me,” and “was appointed … by my worst political enemies.” And as is the case with everything that Trump criticizes, it is all “Rigged & Corrupt.”

First of all, Judge Engoron was elected, not appointed. But those pesky facts don’t deter Trump from his raging or pathetic sense of perpetual victimhood. He followed up that rant a few hours later writing that…

“The New York State Court System is being ridiculed all over the World! You have a Corrupt, Racist, Weak on Crime Attorney General, Letitia ‘Peekaboo’James, who campaigned on ‘I will get Trump, even though she knew NOTHING about me. Then you have a highly political, biased Judge, who is totally controlled by my worst enemies. His rulings and manner are SICK. He gave his quick hearing, & ridiculous decision, right before Midterms – A No No! He’s worse than Peekaboo, and a real ‘Trump Hater.'”

Once again, Trump has a uniquely perverse perspective of reality. Any ridicule being expressed around the world is almost entirely directed at Trump. And AG James knows enough about him to have accumulated abundant evidence of his crimes. Which is what is really gnawing at him.

Trump seems to think that there is some benefit to insulting the presiding judge as “SICK” and corrupt and biased. And Trump also mistakenly believes that it’s “a no no” to bring him up on state charges. He’s going to find out the hard way that none of that is true. There is a sound legal basis for the monitor, which was outlined in the ruling. As reported by CNN

“A New York state judge on Thursday imposed a monitor to oversee the Trump Organization’s financial statements after the New York attorney general’s office asked for added oversight to stop what they allege is a decade-long fraud conducted by former President Donald Trump and three of his adult children.

“Judge Arthur Engoron wrote in an 11-page opinion that given the ‘persistent misrepresentations throughout every one of Mr. Trump’s [financial statements] between 2011 and 2021, the Court finds that the appointment of an independent monitor is the most prudent and narrowly tailored mechanism to ensure there is no further fraud or illegality.'”

In short, the monitor was put in place to prevent Trump from selling or transferring any assets, or undertaking any corporate restructuring, without prior notice and approval from the court. The necessity of this monitoring was made evident by Trump’s attempt to create a new entity – Trump Organization 2 – into which he could transfer his business assets to shield them from the $250 million lawsuit filed by the the New York Attorney General.

Trump’s wrath over this ruling is just his latest meltdown. When he was required to sit for a deposition in the case, he pleaded the Fifth Amendment more than 400 times. And he has already filed two lawsuits attempting to derail the legal cases against him. To date, that has been a fruitless effort driven by desperation. But then, that’s all he has left. And he knows it. Were he innocent he would be arguing for an acquittal rather than insulting the judge and the court.

Trump Files Another Lame Lawsuit Against the New York Attorney General Who He Hates and Fears

For most of Donald Trump’s public life he has been known as serially litigious. He uses the courts as a tool to intimidate and obstruct those with whom he has any disagreement whether legal, financial, political, or personal. For the most part it has only been effective when used against small businesses that he sought stiff. He has had much less success with it in the political realm.

Donald Trump Sweating

However, that doesn’t mean Trump hasn’t seen some benefit from his lawsuit frenzies. They have served to delay accountability by abusing the system with multiple filings and appeals. Never mind that those efforts generally end in failure for Trump.

RELATED: Judge Dismisses Trump’s Loopy Lawsuit Against Twitter for ‘Failure to Plausibly State a Claim’

Despite his record of repudiation by the courts, Trump persists in filing his pathetic and futile lawsuits. The latest one was filed on Wednesday against Letitia James, the Attorney General of New York. James is suing Trump for fraud related to his shady real estate business. So naturally, Trump is trying to evade accountability again with a legal distraction that has no chance of success.

Trump announced the filing Wednesday on his floundering social media scam, Truth Social, buried within a barrage of 72 mostly nauseatingly narcissistic posts the same day. Trump wrote that…

“Today, I filed a lawsuit in Florida State Circuit Court against the corrupt Attorney General of New York State, Letitia “Peekaboo” James. New York State is one of the most crime-ridden places on earth with murders, robberies, drug deals, and every other form of crime setting records on a weekly basis.”

First of all, it is ridiculous to file a lawsuit in Florida against the Attorney General New York. But that’s just the beginning of Trump’s foolishness. He repeats his infantile nickname for James (“Peekaboo”) for which no one can figure out the meaning. And he chastises James for not eliminating all crime in New York, which isn’t her job. In New York local district attorneys have jurisdiction over those matters, not the state Attorney General. But Trump wasn’t through. He went on to whine about being subjected to the law, like every other citizen…

“[James] attacks great and upstanding businesses which have done nothing wrong, like the very successful, job and tax producing Trump Organization that I have painstakingly built over a long period of years. Crooked and highly partisan James now thinks it is the business of the State of New York to go after my revocable trust and pry into my private estate plan, only to look for ways to recklessly injure me, my family, my businesses, and my tens of millions of supporters.”

Setting aside the fact that the Trump Organization is neither successful, nor a job creator, Trump is dismissing the abundance of evidence proving that he and his family have actually done a great deal of wrong. And it’s cute that he tries to reflect his own criminal behavior on his not-nearly millions of cult supporters, who are not the targets of James’ lawsuit. And he still had more to say…

“If I were not elected President of the United States, and now leading in the polls by substantial margins against both Democrats and Republicans, this would not be happening.”

Trump may be partly right about this. Had he not elevated himself in the public eye, he might have slithered by with his crimes, as he had done for many years before he ran for office. But his massive, yet fragile, ego drove him to put himself in legal jeopardy, believing that he is untouchable.

For her part, AG James replied to Trump’s filing by noting that Trump’s prior lawsuits have been laughed out of court. And she reiterated her that position that the New York Attorney General will not be intimidated or dissuaded by Trump’s impotent bluster…

“Multiple judges have dismissed Donald Trump’s baseless attempts to evade justice, and no number of lawsuits will deter us from pursuing this fraud. We sued Donald Trump because he committed extensive financial fraud. That fact hasn’t changed, and neither will our resolve to ensure that no matter how powerful or political one might be, no one is above the law.”

This lawsuit by Trump follows other recent efforts to evade accountability. But those efforts reeked of desperation and fear. For instance, when Trump was forced to give a deposition, he pleaded the Fifth Amendment more than 400 times. And in another bonehead play, Trump lashed out at the judge presiding over his case. All of which reveals just how tortured Trump is by these proceedings. He know he’s guilty, and has no recourse but to throw his feeble temper tantrums. and so he does.

Stable Genius? Trump Maniacally Attacks the Judge Presiding Over His Fraud Trial in New York

The trial of Donald Trump and his crime family in New York for fraudulent business practices has revealed a a great deal about Trump and his deteriorating temperament. From the day the lawsuit was announced, rather than making a rational case for his innocence, Trump responded by throwing tantrums aimed at NY Attorney General Letitia James, who he maligned as corrupt and, oddly, racist (James is Black). And does anyone know why he calls her “Peekaboo”?

Donald Trump, Insane, Straight Jacket

Prior to the commencement of the trial, Trump was deposed by James, which gave him an opportunity to state for the record that he was not guilty. Instead, Trump pleaded the Fifth Amendment – more than 400 times. This from someone who previously insisted that only the guilty and mobsters take the Fifth.

RELATED: Snowflake Trump Pleads the Fifth Amendment, So Let’s Break Down His Desperately Deranged Reasons

The trial began on Monday with jury selection, which Trump has already challenged. He filed a motion seeking to dismiss all eighteen members of the jury because one member of the jury pool – who wasn’t selected – said that she was biased. Trump’s motion was denied.

On Thursday Trump demonstrated some of that “stable genius” mentality that he is known for, at least in his own warped mind. On his floundering social media scam, Truth Social, Trump lashed out at the judge who is presiding over the case. Trump raged that…

“The only person who may be worse than weak on violent crime A.G. Letitia “Peekaboo” James, is the Judge we have on her ridiculous & highly partisan case against me & my family. His name is Arthur Engoron, & he is a vicious, biased, and mean “rubber stamp” for the Communist takeover of the great & prosperous American company that I have built over a long period of years. He was appointed by my worst enemies. Case was to go to a new Judge, but he demands to keep it. I have no jury or Civil Rights!”

Trump , of course, is known for his feverish hyperbole and rancid outbursts. But he truly exceeded his reputation with this comment. Trump’s attorneys may be uncomfortable with him insulting the judge so savagely. That isn’t likely to endear them, or him, to the court. And the accusations that the judge is not only “vicious, biased, and mean,” but also a communist, can only be seen as an attempt to later plead insanity.

Trump’s complaint that he has “no jury or Civil Rights” is plainly nonsense. He contradicted himself with his motion to dismiss the jury that he now says he doesn’t have. And he didn’t bother to state which civil right he was denied. Perhaps he’s referring to the Justice Department’s informal practice (not a civil right) of not prosecuting cases near an election. He posted a second assault on the court on that subject…

“In breaking with a long standing and powerful tradition where cases involving politicos are not to be brought or tried just prior to, or during, a major Election (the Midterms), I have THREE, all run and inspired by Democrats, who absolutely refused to move the date. They demand it be now. So much for tradition and unwritten rules and laws!!!”

At least Trump acknowledges that these rules (which should be revoked) are unwritten. Actually, they are written, but they are not law. What he doesn’t acknowledge is that there isn’t any election in progress wherein he is a candidate. So the rules would not apply to him at this time. He’s also displaying his blatant hypocrisy, because he has been calling for the prosecution of everyone from President Biden to Hillary Clinton to Merrick Garland, and more, all during the same election cycle.

Trump’s hostility toward this judge, the AG, and every civic institution that represents America, is once again evident in his tirades. He remains the most whiny, paranoid, crybaby of victimhood in public life. And somehow his glassy-eyed cult followers regard him as a man of strength, when he couldn’t possibly be more pathetic, frightened, and, ultimately, impotent.

HUH? Trump Told Hannity He Didn’t Pack the Mar-a-Lago Docs that He Declassified With His Mind

It’s just another morning in Trumplandia and its Dear Leader, Donald Trump, is engaged in a fever swamp freak out over at his floundering social media scam, Truth Social. So far he has posted 36 mouth-frothing comments that only affirm how petrified he is by the rash of bad news he’s so pitifully whining about.

Donald Trump Sean Hannity

This “truthing” tantrum was triggered by the announcement on Wednesday that New York Attorney General Letitia James has filed a lawsuit against Trump and his crime family for fraud. James is seeking to strip Trump of his New York businesses and levy a penalty of $250 million dollars. And the case is so strong that even Trump’s surrogates are folding.

RELATED: Trump’s Spokes-Shill Admits that He’s Guilty of the Fraud Charges By New York AG Letitia James

In his defense, Trump scurried off to Fox News where their Senior Trump-Fluffer, Sean Hannity, was ready to offer solace and pre-chewed excuses that Trump could slip into. However, these staged propaganda pieces often seem better suited to Comedy Central than any network with the word “News” in their name.

Among the hilarious punchlines delivered by Trump was his assertion that he is able to telepathically declassify highly sensitive national security documents.

“You’re the president of the United States you can declassify just by saying It’s declassified.’ Even by thinking about it. Because you’re sending it to Mar-a-Lago, or to wherever you’re sending it, and there doesn’t have to be a process. There can be a process, but there doesn’t have to be.”

Nope. That’s not how any of this works. This isn’t “Bewitched.” There is definitely a process and it must be observed, even by a president. Otherwise, how would anyone else in government know whether a document was classified or not? But Trump was just getting started. He went on to say that…

“I declassified everything. Now I declassified things that we were having a lot of problems with NARA [National Archives and Records Administration]. You know, NARA is a radical left group of people running that thing, and when you send documents over there, I would say that there’s a very good chance that a lot of those documents will never be seen again. There’s also a lot of speculation because of what they did, the severity of the FBI coming and raiding Mar-a-Lago. Were they looking for the Hillary emails that were deleted, but they are around someplace.”

If Trump’s claim that he declassified “everything,” is true, then anyone can now request it. Me, Rachel Maddow, Stephen Colbert, or even one of Vladimir Putin’s American assets (i.e. Tucker Carlson). What’s more, Trump’s knee-jerk habit of declaring any institution that isn’t subservient to his will a “radical left group,” is getting tiresome. He has already plastered that label on everything from the FBI to the Pentagon. And his preposterous charge that the FBI was looking for Hillary Clinton’s emails is downright hysterical.

PREVIOUSLY: WTF? Now Trump Says the FBI Was Looking for Hillary Clinton’s Emails at Mar-a-Lago

And Trump still had more to say. He told Hannity that he can’t be prosecuted under the “Presidential Records Act.” Which no one is trying to do. However, the Act does say that “Presidential records automatically transfer into the legal custody of the Archivist as soon as the President leaves office.” So bringing it up only further incriminates him. He also says the Secret Service was “watching over” the documents at Mar-a-Lago. Which is, of course, untrue. The Secret Service is detailed to former presidents, not things.

Finally, with regard to what was packed and moved from the White House to Mar-a-Lago, Trump pleaded ignorance. Which in his case is pretty easy to believe. However, he is contradicting his own claims to having declassified everything. He told Hannity that he didn’t pack any of the boxes that were later found at his hotel/home. That was, according to Trump, all done by the GSA [General Services Administration] or White House staff. He incoherently stammered that…

“GSA was involved. That’s Government services. They’re fantastic people. And they packed them… and not only that, they brought ’em in, along with people in the White House. I don’t know who they are, but there are a lot of people working in the White House. They packed them up but… clothing, massive amounts of pictures. You know they take so many amounts of pictures every day, and they give you copies of all this stuff. And it’s boxes and boxes of pictures.”

Trump conveniently forgot to mention the boxes and boxes of classified documents. And it’s his contention now that all of those boxes were packed by GSA and White House staff who he doesn’t know. By the way, none of those people would have clearance to handle classified documents. But more to the point, how could Trump have declassified them – with his mind or otherwise – if he didn’t know they were even there because he had nothing to do with packing them?

What was Trump’s mind declassifying? Does he even know? That’s just another one of the many mysteries that we are left to wonder about in the wake of Trump’s occupation of the White House. Hopefully one of the many criminal investigations of Trump will clear that up for him – and for us.

Trump’s Spokes-Shill Admits that He’s Guilty of the Fraud Charges By New York AG Letitia James

It’s been a long time coming, but the first formal charges against Donald Trump by New York Attorney General Letitia James have been filed. They are wide ranging and carry serious penalties, including a permanent ban on Trump and his children serving on any corporate board, being prohibited for five years from running any corporation or similar business in New York or applying for business loans, and $250 million in restitution.

Donald Trump, Prison

The action taken by James was the result of a “comprehensive, three-year investigation” that involved “interviews with more than 65 witnesses and review of millions of documents.” In the press conference announcing the lawsuit, James charged Trump with “violating the law as part of his efforts to generate profits for himself, his family and his company.”

The lawsuit alleged that Trump and his co-defendants – Eric Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump – “falsely inflated his net worth by billions of dollars to unjustly enrich himself and to cheat the system, thereby cheating all of us.” Furthermore, James noted that she would be forwarding her findings to the Department of Justice and the IRS, where criminal charges could be considered. Then she elaborated saying that…

“Mr. Trump and the Trump Organization repeatedly and persistently manipulated the value of assets to induce banks to lend money to the Trump Organization on more favorable terms than would otherwise have been available to the company to pay lower taxes, to satisfy continuing loan agreements, and to induce insurance companies to provide insurance coverage for higher limits and for lower premiums.”

Within minutes of the announcement, Trump’s spokes-shill, Liz Harrington, posted a comment on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, that she apparently thought was a defense of her boss. It wasn’t…

“These people are DERANGED! [Former] President Trump did not inflate his assets. He UNDERVALUED them. They have turned New York City into a Third World country. They release violent criminals on the streets, and use their energy to go after a law-abiding, successful businessman, who is their number one political opponent. Sick!

First of all, Harrington is lying about Trump not inflating his assets. Not only does James cite abundant evidence that he did, he has even bragged about doing it saying in his book “The Art of the Deal” that “a little hyperbole never hurts. People want to believe that something is the biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular. I call it truthful hyperbole. It’s an innocent form of exaggeration. In other words, an “innocent” form of lying.

However, Harrington completely missed the part of James’ statement where she also said that Trump undervalued his assets in order to “to pay lower taxes.” So Harrington’s post is explicitly affirming that Trump is guilty of that charge in the AG’s lawsuit.

Trump’s attorney, Alina Habba, didn’t do much good for her client either when she provided a response to the lawsuit saying that…

“Today’s filing is neither focused on the facts nor the law — rather, it is solely focused on advancing the Attorney General’s political agenda.[…] and we look forward to defending our client against each and every one of the Attorney General’s meritless claims.”

If Trump is looking forward so much to defending himself against these claims, why did he take the Fifth Amendment more than 400 times when he was deposed by James a few weeks ago? Which is something that he previously said only guilty people and mobsters do? And why did he try to evade the depositions entirely unless he was granted immunity?

RELATED: Admission of Guilt? Trump and Family Seek to Evade Depositions Unless Granted Immunity

For his part, Trump also banged out a rapid reply to James in a Truth Social rant. He whined that this is “Another Witch Hunt by a racist Attorney General, Letitia James,” and that he “never thought this case would be brought – until I saw her really bad poll numbers.”

This isn’t the first time that Trump called James, who is Black, a racist. Nor is it the first time he’s shown his obsession with polls, even when they have nothing to do with the subject at hand. For the record, last month a Sienna College Research Institute poll had James beating her GOP opponent by 14 points.

Trump’s latest meltdown is typical of his desperate emotional state. Whenever he is confronted by bad news, he complains of his victimhood. Everything is a “witch hunt” and everyone is out to get him. And this is the model of a strongman that has so enraptured the Trump Cult. Just think how these snowflakes will react when criminal charges are filed.

Snowflake Trump Pleads the Fifth Amendment, So Let’s Break Down His Desperately Deranged Reasons

On Wednesday Donald Trump finally appeared for a deposition that he tried desperately for months to avoid. After losing every appeal to quash the order to testify, Trump showed up and, when he got there, took the cowardly way out by pleading the Fifth Amendment (more than 400 times). You know, the one that enables people to remain silent so that they don’t incriminate themselves.

Donald Trump, Snowflakes

The deposition Trump is keeping his mouth shut for was ordered by New York Attorney General Letitia James. She’s investigating Trump for fraudulently misrepresenting the value of his real estate properties. Trump has responded by viciously attacking James and insulting her, rather than simply making the case for his innocence. What does that tell you?

RELATED: Crybaby Trump is Scared and Lashing Out Hysterically at Hillary Clinton and NY AG Letitia James

Of course, anyone is permitted to plead the Fifth in order to avoid self-incrimination. And that includes Trump. However, the reasons he provided in a rambling and hostile statement that he posted online don’t exactly help his case. The full statement is posted below (or here transcribed). But here are a few of choice selections that embody the crux of his feelings about the matter.

Trump opened by saying that “Attorney General Letitia James openly campaigned on the policy of ‘Get and Destroy Trump.’ This political attack on me, my family, and my great company is her despicable attempt to fulfill that cynical, and very corrupt promise.”

Trump’s complaint that James campaigned “on the policy of ‘Get and Destroy Trump,” actually points out how much Trump is despised. After all, it was a winning campaign. And if Trump had such a “great company,” it wouldn’t now be the subject of an investigation for fraud.

Trump wrote that James said “‘He’s going to know my name personally’, and she claimed I was an ‘illegitimate President.'”

Well, James was right on both counts then. Trump obviously knows her name, and his presidency was wholly illegitimate if judged by his ignorance, failure to accomplish anything, and his tendency to violate the legal and moral principles of the position.

Trump wrote that James “colluded with others to carry out this phony years-long crusade.”

In other words, she worked cooperatively other other law enforcement agencies to advance a probe that Trump tried to obstruct for years, but for which James won every court battle. Which is why he was there pleading the Fifth.

Now Trump is whining that “Letitia James openly stated her hostilities toward me.”

Was that while Trump was politely calling her “despicable,” “corrupt,” and “racist?”

Trump insists that “I did nothing wrong, which is why, after five years of looking, the Federal, State and local governments, together with the Fake News Media, have found nothing.”

Actually, Trump has resisted cooperating with the investigations, which is what took up most of that time. And he might want to check with the FBI, who just searched his Mar-a-Lago bunker, about whether anything was found.

RELATED: The Trump Cult Knows He’s Guilty, So They’re All on Fox News Yammering About Planted Evidence

Trump calls the probe “a vindictive and self-serving fishing expedition.”

But James is very narrowly looking into how “the Trump Organization exaggerated the value of its holdings to impress lenders or misstated what land was worth to slash its tax burden […] The company even exaggerated the size of Trump’s Manhattan penthouse.”

And this is where we get into the meat of Trump’s excuse for pleading the Fifth.

“I once asked, ‘If you’re innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?’ Now I know the answer to that question. When your family, your company, and all the people in your orbit have become the targets of an unfounded, politically motivated Witch Hunt supported by lawyers, prosecutors, and the Fake News Media, you have no choice.”

Indeed. On more than one occasion Trump insisted that taking the Fifth Amendment was a sign guilt: “The mob takes the Fifth. If you’re innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?” However, nothing in Trump’s statement refutes the facts that are alleged against him. So his complaints about them being unfounded, or politically motivated are just more hot air. If anything, he should be more motivated to speak out in order to set the record straight. But that’s hard to do when you know you’re guilty.

Trump then asserts that “the current Administration and many prosecutors in this Country have lost all moral and ethical bounds of decency.”

Once again, Trump offers nothing to support that charge. Just like his tedious lies about election fraud, he can’t provide a shred of evidence.

Trump closes with “Accordingly, under the advice of my counsel and for all of the above reasons, I declined to answer the questions under the rights and privileges afforded to every citizen under the United States Constitution.”

This would be a good time to point out that Trump didn’t actually give any reasons for declining to answer questions. He just insulted the Attorney General and other government officials, and he complained about being held accountable for his crimes. And there is nothing in the rest of the statement that rises to any sort of coherent argument for declining to make his case under oath. But then, did you expect anything more from Donald Trump?

Trump Postpones Deposition with NY AG Due to Ivana’s Death, But Not His Upcoming Cult Rally

The most consistently predictable behavior by former reality TV game show host, and disgraced short-term occupant of the White House, Donald Trump, is his compulsion to turn every public affair into a solicitation for cash to enrich himself and his family. Grifting has always been the primary focus of Trump in business and politics.

Trump Baby on Cash Pile

So naturally, when the news that Trump’s first wife, Ivana, had died, it was entirely foreseeable that Trump would find ways to exploit her passing. He began immediately by sending his suckers (aka supporters) an email announcing Ivana’s death that included a link to donate to his “Save America” scam-PAC.

However, that was just the beginning. Apparently Trump also used the demise of his ex-wife as an excuse to dodge the deposition that he was scheduled to give in the real estate fraud investigation being conducted by New York Attorney General, Letitia James.

“Former President Donald Trump and two of his children got their questioning postponed Friday in a New York civil investigation into their business dealings, a delay that follows the death of Trump’s ex-wife Ivana. […] New York Attorney General Letitia James’ office said it had agreed to postpone them because of Ivana Trump’s death, announced Thursday.”

Poor Donald is so stricken with grief at the loss of the former spouse that he repeatedly and publicly cheated on, and divorced thirty years ago, that he is incapable of answering a few questions about his corrupt business enterprise.

Not to worry though. It seems that Trump will be fully recovered the next day. He has not canceled his cult rally in Arizona on Saturday. So while his mourning is too intense to permit him to fulfil his legal obligations, it isn’t too severe to prevent him from appearing before a throng of Deplorables to disgorge the same tedious litany of lies he has been spewing for the past year and a half.

That’s right. Regaling his drooling devotees with more utterly unsupported allegations of election fraud, whining about hoaxes and witch hunts, and unleashing infantile insults at his political enemies – including insufficiently worshipful Republicans – is well within Trump’s ability during this difficult time. But replying to inquiries about his business operations – which he insists are all perfectly legal – is far too big a burden for him under these sad circumstances. And his grief hasn’t prevented him from lashing out at the House Select Committee that is investigating the January 6th insurrection that he incited.

And if you believe any of that, you’re probably already firmly indoctrinated into the Trump cult and beyond the reach of logic or sanity. Enjoy your Kool-Aid.

UPDATE: Trump’s hypocrisy was revealed, so he has now postponed his Arizona grifting rally by one week. So the deposition ought to be next week as well? We’ll see.

Trump Suffers Severe Cognitive Collapse, Claims that ‘Everyone Was Happy’ When He Was in Office

Only the most brainwashed disciples of his cult still believe that Donald Trump is mentally competent. He never was the “stable genius” that he laughably called himself. But his psychological decline appears to be picking up steam as his legal peril intensifies in conjunction with his rapidly deteriorating prospects for a return to the White House.

Donald Trump, Insane, Straight Jacket

On Friday Trump delivered a campaign speech in Las Vegas for a couple of Republican candidates in Nevada. It was typically rife with lies and unbridled outrage triggered by figments of his overactive imagination. He regurgitated his delusional election fraud claims and flung infantile insults at his political foes.

RELATED: The Crimes Trump Can (Should) Be Indicted For Now, According to Watergate Prosecutor and Others

In addition to his standard narcissistic rambling and psychotic sermonizing, Trump also unleashed the following hysterical observation pulled directly out of his asinine recollection of a warped version of the past:

“We have to stop fighting with each other and unify. That was happening during the greatest period, I believe, in our country’s history in many ways. Just before COVID came in from China – and that’s where it came from, Wuhan. It came from Wuhan. It can happen again. We were more unified just before that. Everybody was happy.”

Trump is right if what he means by “everybody” is his dimwitted followers and the rage-fueled voices in his head. However, a reality-based remembrance of the Trump years reveals a nation that was more unified in hatred of Trump than happiness. After all, there were unprecedented, massive protests from the very beginning of his term. He had record low approval ratings that never reached 50%. He lost the lost popular vote twice. He lost reelection by over seven million votes. And how could he forget that he was impeached twice? A recent poll shows that even 49% of Republicans don’t want him to run in 2024.

Does that sound like a nation that was happy and unified? Trump himself was never happy. He exhibited a constant state of outrage, throwing temper tantrums almost daily. And his animus was not reserved for Democrats. He regularly lashed out at Republicans who he deemed insufficiently worshipful.

Trump’s seething anger has never waned in the months since he was deported back to Mar-a-Lago. He is still spewing the furious tirades that embody the whole of his public life. Also in his Las Vegas address, Trump launched a bizarre attack on New York Attorney General Letitia James:

“In many cases, however, racist prosecutors should also be vigorously investigated for their brazen violation of federal civil rights laws. It’s happening to me with a racist attorney general in New York who campaigned solely on the fact that she would get Donald Trump. ‘I’m gonna get him.'”

James happens to be Black. So Trump regards her as racist because she’s investigating the crimes of a White, former reality TV game show host, who cheated on his taxes, lied about his real estate properties, and tried to overthrow the U.S. government. And his complaint that James campaigned on “get[ting] Donald Trump” doesn’t help his case. After all, she won. Which proves that it was a smart and relevant campaign issue, and that voters are also anxious to “get Trump.”

RELATED: WTF? Trump Brags that 67% of Americans Say He’s Responsible for the Violent January 6th Insurrection

These are just two of the most recent examples of Trump’s descent into madness. Calling a Black Attorney General racist, and recalling his contentious term in office as a time of unity, are about as far removed from reality as one can get. The only worse mental afflictions would be the ones that infect anyone who continues to support Trump.

HOLY SHIH TZU: Trump Posts Hostile Easter Greetings Filled with Insults and Hatred and Fear

The worshipful infatuation that evangelicals have for Donald Trump has always been starkly hypocritical. Trump is indisputably the most flagrantly faithless person to ever occupy the White House. His ignorance of – and animosity toward – religion is evident every time he deigns to mention it. And he only mentions it when he has something personal to gain by doing so.

Flaming Trump

The record of Trump’s entire public life is antithetical to everything that the historical Jesus stands for. He and his Republican Party oppose healing the sick. They revile refugees (such as Jesus). He repeatedly engages in adultery. He lies pathologically. He has no empathy for the poor. He uses the Lord’s name in vain. And he has unrepentantly violated all of the seven deadly sins: pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, and sloth.

Trump has previously made staggeringly irreligious remarks. For instance, when asked if had ever asked God for forgiveness, he replied that he didn’t need to because he has never done anything wrong. “I don’t have to ask God for forgiveness,” he said. “Why do I have to repent? Why do I have to ask for forgiveness if you’re not making mistakes?”

That, of course, shows that Trump has a painfully misguided interpretation of the tenets of his own alleged Presbyterian faith, including “original sin,” wherein all are born with sin and require God’s forgiveness for salvation.

On this Easter Sunday, Trump demonstrated his holiday spirit by posting messages (via his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill) that are rife with rancor and venomous rage. He couldn’t even refrain from excreting his hateful bile for a single day to pay tribute to his alleged savior. So he tweeted

“Happy Easter to all including the Radical Left Maniacs who are doing everything possible to destroy our Country. May they not succeed, but let them, nevertheless, be happy, healthy, wealthy, and well!”

Not satisfied with that maliciousness, he then tweeted

“Happy Easter to failed gubernatorial candidate and racist Attorney General Letitia James. May she remain healthy despite the fact that she will continue to drive business out of New York while at the same time keeping crime, death, and destruction in New York!”

How reverential of the spirit of this day when other Christians are gathered in churches and homes celebrating the resurrection of their lord. What’s more, this is also Passover and Ramadan, but Trump didn’t bother to recognize the holy days of Jews and Muslims. Which, given how he recognized the Christians, is a blessing.

Instead, Trump lashed out at the tens of millions of Americans who hold different political opinions than he does, calling them all “maniacs.” And he maligned the Black Attorney General of New York (whom he desperately fears) as a racist. And he disparages everyone who disagrees with him as wanting to “destroy” the country.

This, of course, is not the first time that Trump has denigrated his alleged faith on Easter in order to insult his enemies (whom Jesus called upon to love). Last year Trump issued a repugnant Easter message that venerated his “Big Lie” about the 2020 election, saying that…

“They rigged and stole our 2020 Presidential Election, which we won by a landslide, and then, on top of that, boycott and scare companies into submission. Never submit, never give up! The Radical Left will destroy our Country if we let them. We will not become a Socialist Nation. Happy Easter!”

Trump was triggered by the fact that private companies didn’t want to be associated with the blatant voter suppression laws that were implemented in Georgia. So in his typical totalitarian, anti-free market fashion, he ordered his cult followers to boycott them – in honor of Easter.

Trump’s Christian followers really need to explain how they can support him given his past and current behavior and blatant blasphemy. They need to, but they won’t. Because they are the sort of Christians who populated the Den of Iniquity, and who currently reside in the House of Hypocrisy. In their delusions Trump is honest, loving, humble, pious, and virtuous. You know, like a Messiah.
