THANKS! Trump Spokesperson Convincingly Explains Why No One Should Vote for Republicans

The volume of disinformation that regularly emanates from Donald Trump and his self-serving, perpetual propaganda machine is unprecedented. Trump himself has been documented to have told more than 30,000 lies during his occupation of the White House. But now his super Pac hack is uncharacteristically telling the truth about the Republican Party.

Donald Trump, Republican, GOP

RELATED: Cowardly Republican Party to Require Their Presidential Candidates to Boycott 2024 Debates

Despite Trump’s record of deceit, every now and again someone in the Trump realm inadvertently allows a morsel of truth to escape into the wild. And on Friday morning the culprit was Trump’s official mouthpiece (and Twitter ban defying spokes-shill), Liz Harrington. In one of her regular appearances on the shamelessly Trump-fluffing One America News Network (OAN), Harrington was fed the softest of balls by OAN’s Natalie Harp (video below):

“The Republican Party isn’t the establishment party anymore. It’s the people’s party. They’re determining the direction of the party in terms of legislation, America First. That’s not what they’re used to. And yet somehow they think that they can point out the Cheneys and the Bushs. Don’t they realize we all rejected that during the primaries in 2016?”

Let’s just set aside the nonsense that the party that gets the most financial and institutional support from corporations and wealthy elites can be portrayed as “the people’s party.” And it is those one-percenters who have always determined the party’s direction. It is, however, notable that Harp admits her inclusion in the Trump Cult saying that WE all ejected that during the primaries in 2016.” But it was Harrington’s response that let the cat out of the hag:

“They [Republicans] all been exposed for the frauds that they are. They’re as fraudulent as the last election. And the people have seen through that and they want the real thing. They don’t want another fake substitute, another fake election where there’s really no difference between the two candidates on the ballot. They might say they are a different party, but the end result, they’re not the same. The Cheneys of the world, the Pelosis of the world, the McConnells, they all want endless wars. They all want open borders. They all want bad trade deals for the United States. They do not care about our sovereignty. They do not care about our jobs. And they can pretend to care about issues of the day.”

And there you have it. Directly from the horse’s mouth. Trump’s tweet-meister reveals that the Republican Party is full of warmongering, immigrant-bashing, economy-destroying “frauds.” Democrats and most rational Americans have known that for years (decades?). But it’s good to hear them confess their corruption publicly.

Trump himself has emerged as the most anti-Republican Republican in the party’s history. His hostility toward leaders of the Party such as Mitch McConnell, whom he now calls the “broken old crow,” is typical of his lust for vengeance against anyone showing signs of dwindling devotion. Trump has even demanded that his cult disciples refrain from donating to the GOP, and place their offerings on his plate instead. “No more money for RINOS,” Trump decreed, “Send your donation to [his] Save America PAC.”

This might seem like good news for Democrats. With Trump bashing the GOP and trying to intercept their donations, it should benefit Democratic candidates in the upcoming midterm elections. And it probably will, to a degree. However, Trump’s influence appears to be waning within the Republican world. The most recent party financial disclosure shows that the GOP raised $140 million in 2021. Which is still less than the $146 million Democrats raised. But it shows that GOP donors aren’t heeding Trump’s order to send their funds to him.

RELATED: Trump Orders His Cult To ‘Drop Off of Twitter’ and Calls For It To Be Outlawed

You know Trump’s gotta hate the fact that people are ignoring his orders. Perhaps that’s why he dispatched Harrington to OAN to throw more mud at his fellow Republicans. Because, in the end, all Trump cares about is how much money and adoration he can collect from his dimwitted followers. The more he sees those measures decline, the more panicked and incoherent he will become. And by that standard, he is already pretty far gone.

JUST DO IT: Trump’s Debt Ceiling Dumbassery Gives Democrats Leeway to Pass a Voting Rights Bill

In November of 2020, Donald Trump was evicted from the White House by a substantial majority of the American people. But for nearly a year now he has been a private citizen with big friggin’ mouth. No former president has ever been so infatuated with his own voice that he couldn’t just shut the hell up for five minutes.

Donald Trump, Pennywise

For the most part, Trump’s babbling has been focused on undermining democracy and inciting violence in order to impose a dictatorship and evade accountability for his multitude of crimes. However, Trump may have just contributed the first bit of positive blabber in a sea of incoherence and seething animus. Of course, it wasn’t intentional, and he surely has no idea what he’s talking about, but with Trump’s psychotic ranting we have to take good news wherever we can find it.

On Friday Trump posted a message (via his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill) that he intended as a swipe at Republican Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell. It began…

“Mitch McConnell, the Broken Old Crow, has just conceded, for absolutely nothing and for no reason, the powerful Debt Ceiling negotiating block, which was the Republicans’ first-class ticket for victory over the Democrats.”

Trump is still demonstrating his ignorance of economics and what would happen if the United States defaulted on its debt. Either that or he knows that it would send the nation into a severe recession or worse, and that’s what he wants because it would reflect badly on President Biden, and he doesn’t care who gets hurt. Trump went on to complain that McConnell was afraid to use the debt ceiling to kill the “Build Back Worse Bill” and the “Unfrastructure Deal,” as he calls those bills in his typically infantile fashion. This wasn’t the first time that Trump has issued these mind-numbingly stupid threats. He continued saying that…

“The Old Crow also allowed a breaking up of the filibuster, which allows the Democrats now to establish precedent for changing the number of Justices on the Supreme Court and, perhaps most importantly of all, a so-called Voting Rights Bill, which will make it almost impossible for Republicans to get elected in the future.”

Really? So Trump is now conceding that there is precedent for a carve out in the filibuster rules to permit expanding the Supreme Court and passing a voting rights bill. That’s a generous concession that Democrats should take him up on immediately. McConnell shouldn’t mind given that he’s been the target of Trump’s insults for so long and it might teach him a lesson. Trump called McConnell a sick bird three times in this tweet. Although, does anyone else think that when Trump says that “the Broken Old Crow is a loser, and very bad for the Republican Party,” that he is actually talking about himself?

Trump is not just a raging idiot. He is also a flaming hypocrite. With regard to the debt ceiling being used for negotiating purposes, here is what Trump said a couple of years ago:

“I can’t imagine anybody ever even thinking of using the debt ceiling as a negotiating wedge. When I first came into office I asked about the debt ceiling. I understand debt ceilings and I certainly understand the highest rated credit ever in history and the debt ceiling. And I said, I remember, to Sen. Schumer and to Nancy Pelosi, ‘Would anybody ever use that to negotiate with?’ They said ‘Absolutely not.’ That’s a sacred element of our country. They can’t use the debt ceiling to negotiate. That’s a very, very sacred thing in our country. Debt ceiling. We can never play with it.”

So McConnell is a loser for not using “the powerful Debt Ceiling negotiating block,” even though he says that it’s “sacred” and “can’t [be used] to negotiate.” It’s astonishing that anyone could still support this Olympic-class imbecile. But Trump has managed to capture a slice of the American populace that is dependent on having a cult leader to worship. It must be true what comedian Ricky Gervais said…

Trump Fluffs Kevin McCarthy for His Impotent Oratory Opposing Biden’s Build Back Better Bill

After many weeks of debate and negotiation, and hysterical harangues by Donald Trump, President Biden’s “Build Back Better” bill has finally passed in the House of Representatives. The vote took place later than expected because Republican minority leader, Kevin McCarthy, sought to delay the vote by rambling on tediously for eight and a half hours.

Donald Trump, Kevin McCarthy

McCarthy’s extended exercise in vapidity had no discernible legislative purpose. He wasn’t going to persuade any supporters of the bill to change their votes. He wasn’t going to wrestle some concession from Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The only reasons he tortured his colleagues with his interminable tirade were to kiss up to Donald Trump, advance his aspirations for speakership, and to force the vote into the wee hours so he could later claim it was passed surreptitiously.

So how did he do? He failed to force a midnight vote because Pelosi easily outsmarted him by simply rescheduling it for the next morning. He failed to secure his post as GOP leader because his long-winded lecture was littered with lies and often absurd trivialities. Which leaves his hopes of winning the appreciation of the Creature from the Mar-a-Lagoon. In that McCarthy succeeded. Trump posted a tweet (via his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill) applauding McCarthy’s late-night sermon:

“Great job by Kevin McCarthy last night, setting a record by going over 8 hours of speaking on the House Floor in order to properly oppose Communism. We must never forget what the Democrats have done, at the highest level of evil. If Mitch McConnell had fought, you would have a different Republican President right now.”

The first thing that needs to be established is that there is no way that Trump listened to more than a few minutes of McCarthy’s rant. Trump isn’t praising what McCarthy said, just that he took more than eight hours to say it. So it’s ironic that Trump is complimenting him for “properly oppos[ing] Communism.” There is nothing that McCarthy’s monologue resembled more closely than the endless elocution of Cuba’s communist commandant Fidel Castro or Russia’s overly talkative tyrant, Vladimir Putin.

Although it was generous of Trump to advise his cult disciples to “never forget what the Democrats have done.” What they’ve done is to pass a bill with dozens of programs that are broadly popular. They include initiatives to address childcare, climate change, health care, the economy, and more. And that’s on top of the previous infrastructure bill that was also a political winner.

Trump was also helpful in providing a reminder that the achievements attained by Democrats came at a time of “the highest level of evil.” Of course Trump didn’t mean to reference himself in that regard, but it was an obvious assumption. He further implicated his senatorial snake in the grass, Mitch McConnell, who he has been fuming about frequently as of late.

You really have to wonder whose side Trump is on these days. He has taken to maligning Republicans almost as much as Democrats. He is recruiting primary opponents for GOP incumbents in Congress and governorships. This unfriendly fire is creating hostility within the Republican Party. Some Republicans, such as Liz Cheney, are firing back with significant force.

Even more problematic for the GOP, the recruits that Trump is signing up are uncommonly unqualified for public service. They are inexperienced, hold extremist fringe positions, and have some unsavory histories. In fact, the only thing they have in common is their unflinching fealty to Trump. Which actually answers the question above about whose side Trump is on. Just as it has been for as long he’s he’s been in public life. Trump is always, and only, on Trump’s side.

Grumpy Trump Thumps ‘Broken Old Crow Mitch McConnell’ in Rabid Anti-Build Back Better Rant

Prima Donald Trump is once again throwing a temper tantrum over matters that he has utterly no control over, nor anything positive to contribute. And true to form, this petulant outburst by “the most fabulous whiner” (in his own words) is comprised entirely of whining, lying, and insulting his perceived foes.

Donald Trump Pacifier Fox

In a tweet posted by his proxy Twitter persona (who is breaching Twitter’s rules by circumventing Trump’s ban), the Former Guy lashed out with his characteristic rancor at Republican minority leader, Mitch McConnell, for allegedly helping Democrats to pass President Biden’s “Build Back Better” plan in the Senate. Of course, McConnell isn’t doing that at all. While he did vote for the Biden infrastructure bill last week, he hasn’t shown any interest in supporting the Build Back Better bill.

RELATED: Crybaby Trump Whines Impotently About Passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill

Nevertheless, Trump was peeved. He began his tirade with his new, childish nickname for McConnell, the “Broken Old Crow,” which he repeated four times in the tweet. He lied about what he said was the $5 trillion price tag of the $1.75 trillion bill, a figure that he attributed to “some people.” And he blamed “McConnell’s incompetence” for “ensuring massive Inflation and the destruction of our Country as we know it.”

If all of things that Trump has said Biden is doing that will “destroy” the country actually did, we would have been crumbled into dust long ago. But the most ridiculous complaint in this tweet was Trump’s insertion of yet another swing at his deranged election fraud allegations:

“This is what happens when you allow a guy who lost an Election to take over the Office of the President. He obviously had no mandate, but they’re changing our Country and everything it stands for.”

Needless to say, it was Trump who lost the election by a whopping seven million votes. And Biden’s agenda has the overwhelming majority support of the American people.

Undeterred, Trump goes on to malign McConnell as “a fool” and then issues an ignorant and impotent order that “he damn well better stop their ‘Dream of Communism Bill'” Which proves again that he has no idea what the word “communism” means. Trump also suggests that McConnell “Use the Debt Ceiling like it should have been used, you Old Broken Crow.” By which he means to threaten the full faith and credit of the United States and send the nation into a recession or worse.

In closing Trump issued another threat, this time aimed at his own party confederates, saying that “Any Republican in the House or Senate who votes for this Bill will never ever get a Trump Endorsement.” Which may, in fact, be a blessing. Trump’s endorsement may help a candidate in a radicalized GOP primary, but it is just as likely to be toxic in the general election.

RELATED: Crybaby Trump Throws Tantrum Over McConnell Plan to Nix Him from Biden Inauguration

While Trump thinks he is advancing the interests of the Republican Party, the reality is that he is diminishing the prospects of incumbent Republicans with his attacks on those he regards as party traitors for voting for his impeachment or for the infrastructure bill. Trump has been busy endorsing obscure primary opponents who often share Trump’s baseless views about 2020 election fraud.

These Trumpist cult disciples hail from the throng of fringe characters who are devoted to Trump’s egomaniacal, anti-democratic, authoritarian aspirations. And in the end, there is no one who appreciates this more than Democrats.

Crybaby Trump Throws Tantrum Over McConnell Plan to Nix Him from Biden Inauguration

Donald Trump has to regard the last couple of years as among the worst of his life. Not only was he impeached twice, an unprecedented achievement, but he also suffered a humiliating loss to Joe Biden for the presidency. Biden, you’ll recall, is the candidate that Trump maligned as a senile communist, but still couldn’t beat him.

Donald Trump, King

As it turns out, 2021 got off to a horrible start to Trump. In the very first week he incited a hostile insurrection in Washington, D.C., sending his StormTrumpers to assault the Capitol and threaten the lives of America’s representatives in Congress as they sought to carry out their constitutional duties.

It was a day that Trump cherished, describing it in the new book, Betrayal, by Jonathan Karl as “a very beautiful time with extremely loving and friendly people.” Indeed, it was the same “beautiful time” when fanatical Trump rioters broke through doors, shattered windows, and left more than 140 officers injured. They were the same “loving and friendly people” that Trump embraced rapturously, even as they were committing violent crimes against people and historically treasured property.

With another revelation from Karl’s book we now learn that Trump was not especially welcome at the inauguration for President Biden. Karl writes that Sen. Mitch McConnell had other plans for Trump:

“The then-Senate majority leader sought to have Trump disinvited from Joe Biden’s presidential inauguration on Jan. 20 […] According to Karl, McConnell ‘felt he could not give Trump another opportunity to disrupt the peaceful transfer of power.'”

Karl goes on to disclose that only after Trump heard about McConnell’s intentions did he fire off a tweet (the very last one before his Twitter account was permanently suspended) saying that he had decided not to attend.

Trump tweet

Naturally, Karl’s account of these events sent Trump into near hysterics. He rushed to post a tweet (via his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill) to refute Karl’s version of what took place. And of course, Trump reimagined it all in a way that put him in a more favorable, albeit fictional, light:

“From Election Day, November 3rd, the day I realized that the 2020 Presidential Election was rigged, I would never have agreed to go to Joe Biden’s Inauguration. This decision was mine, and mine alone. The old broken-down Crow, Mitch McConnell, had nothing to do with it. According to third-rate reporter Jonathan Karl of ABC Fake News, McConnell unsuccessfully tried getting a letter signed by others for me not to go. This was nothing I ever heard of and actually, if he ever did get it signed, I probably would have held my nose and gone. The Election was rigged, the facts are clear, and Mitch McConnell did nothing. He was probably too busy working on deals with China for his wife and family!”

So Trump is, in effect, validating “old broken-down Crow” McConnell’s concerns about Trump being likely to “disrupt the peaceful transfer of power.” He’s admitting that he didn’t regard the election as valid, so his presence could only serve to fuel more violence. And he further implied that, were he to go, it would only be to spite McConnell, not to respect the principles of democracy as enshrined in the Constitution.

Everything that Trump has done and said since then affirms his disgust for democracy and the rights of free people to govern themselves. To the contrary, Trump has been an avid advocate of the authoritarianism that he aspires to attain for himself. The American people better make sure that he fails – again.

OMFG! A Trump Supporter and a Reporter Put Their Hysterical Stupidity on Full Display

There is often a fine line between between comedy and tragedy. It’s a line that the record of Donald Trump’s public life frequently crosses. For instance, while there is certainly nothing funny about Trump’s negligent and incompetent mismanagement of the COVID pandemic that has resulted in nearly 800,000 American deaths, you can’t help but laugh at his preposterous proposals to treat the virus with bleach injections.

Donald Trump Crazy

Trump’s Olympic-grade idiocy has, unfortunately, become a daily affair, even after his eviction from the White House. And it is buttressed by the cult disciples who cling to him like a maniacal messiah. An example of this humiliating behavior that Trump inspires from his flock was delivered Monday morning in a Twitter post by Newsmax White House correspondent, Emerald Robinson. Her tweet asked…

“Does Mitch McConnell still think Trump is ‘morally responsible’ for the Jan. 6th fake-insurrection created by the FBI?”

Obviously Robinson hasn’t been paying attention to how obediently McConnell has been upholding Trump’s “Big Lie.” He was opposed to the congressional investigation into the January 6th insurrection. He urged voting against the release of any documents related to Trump’s criminal conspiracies. He is also against compelling testimony from Trump’s accomplices like Steve Bannon and Mark Meadows. So whether or not he “still thinks Trump is ‘morally responsible'” – which he said on the Senate floor shortly after the Capitol riots – that isn’t really relevant. McConnell clearly thinks Trump should be granted a “Get of Jail Free” card. Although his motivation is more focused on the GOP retaining power then on Trump’s interests.

However, that wasn’t the only ridiculousness in Robinson’s tweet. It is also notable for calling the insurrection, that everyone watched live on TV, “fake” and baselessly accusing it of having been “created by the FBI.” That’s a conspiracy theory she probably borrowed from Tucker Carlson, the Senior Conspiracy Crackpot of Fox News.

In addition to that laughably moronic outburst, a supporter of Trump at a recent cult rally was interviewed by TheGoodLiars about getting vaccinated for the coronavirus. It didn’t take long to devolve into pure farce:

Trump Supporter: Everyone who has taken the vaccine will be dead within 5 to 15 years. Guaranteed!
TheGoodLiars: So why did Donald Trump authorize Operation Warp Speed and create the vaccine?
Trump Supporter: Because if not, I think a lot more people would have died.

Lemme get this straight. More people would have died if it weren’t for the vaccine that is killing everyone? For the record, there have already been about 220 million American adults vaccinated. The total population of the U.S. is about 330 million. That means that after all of these vaccinated people die off there only be 110 million people in the whole country. That will have some positive consequences for the environment and anyone who is looking to buy property. Problems with traffic and getting concert tickets will disappear. However, the economy will take a massive hit with the reduction in both people to consume things and people to make things.

This Trumpist also seems a bit confused about the lethality of the vaccine. When asked about Trump’s role in producing it, he flipped his argument, asserting that it actually saved lives. So which is it – miracle cure or deadly toxin? Don’t bother asking any Trump supporter.

As a bonus feature, you may be interested to learn that Donald Trump Jr had his fee fees hurt when he learned that the people of New York hate him and his family. He tweeted a link to an article in the New York Post that claimed that “[Mayor] De Blasio’s bid to rid NYC of Trump name could cost taxpayers over $30 million.”

That $30 million figure is based on dubious estimates by either the Trump Organization (known for misrepresenting the value of their properties) and the NYPost. However, many Trump properties have already divorced themselves from the brand on their own. And there is an argument to be made that ditching the Trump name would make the properties more profitable. So this is a trend that is only just getting started.

Crybaby Trump Whines Impotently About Passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill

There aren’t many public spectacles more humiliating than a washed up politician who fails to see that his influence has dried up. That’s the state of Donald Trump today. While his devoted cult followers keep his massive ego afloat, Trump’s actual ability to impact the nation has suffered considerable shrinkage.

Donald Trump

On Tuesday morning the Senate passed a bipartisan infrastructure bill with 19 Republicans joining all of the Democrats to complete a legislative goal that Trump failed at for four years. Throughout the debate for the past several weeks, Trump repeatedly implored his GOP confederates not to cooperate with the Democratic majority. But his plaintive pleading was for naught. And when the vote for passage was concluded, Trump released a despairing statement (via his spokes-shill, Liz Harrington, (who is violating Twitter’s rules) that only served to highlight his feeble obsolescence:

“Nobody will ever understand why Mitch McConnell allowed this non-infrastructure bill to be passed. He has given up all of his leverage for the big whopper of a bill that will follow. I have quietly said for years that Mitch McConnell is the most overrated man in politics—now I don’t have to be quiet anymore. He is working so hard to give Biden a victory, now they’ll go for the big one, including the biggest tax increases in the history of our Country.

First of all, everyone but Trump understands why Mitch McConnell “allowed” this bill pass. He could hardly stop a bill that had such popular support that even Republican senators knew it would be political suicide to oppose it. And yes, this is a victory for President Biden and the Democrats, but it would have been a devastating defeat for Republicans if they had killed it. Although there is still an opportunity for the GOP to get on the wrong side of the issue when the budget reconciliation bill comes up for a vote.

Naturally, Trump uses this statement to cast blame on others and absolve himself of any responsibility for whatever he happens to be complaining about. This time it’s Senate GOP minority leader, Mitch McConnell. Trump laughably says that he “quietly” criticized McConnell in the past. As if Trump has ever done anything quietly. But as usual, Trump’s version of events doesn’t remotely resemble reality. Just this year Trump has loudly lambasted McConnell saying that…

  • “We need good leadership. Mitch McConnell has not done a great job. I think they should change Mitch McConnell.” (4/29/2021)
  • The Senate GOP leader is “a dumb son of a bitch.” (4/11/2021)
  • McConnell is a “dour, sullen, unsmiling political hack,” and that “if Republican Senators stay with him, they will not win again.” (2/13/2021)

Such a quiet man. These are the incoherent ramblings of a desperate and increasingly isolated has-been who thinks he is still a power broker. But his influence resides solely among the glassy-eyed disciples who cling to him like a miscreant messiah. Going forward, we can count on Trump continuing to fail with greater frequency. And we can also count on him continuing to whine pathetically about it.

Crime of the Century? Rage-a-Holic Trump Lashes Out at GOP, Fox News, and Newsmax

It’s been six months since the 2020 presidential election was won decisively by Joe Biden. It’s been four months since Biden was inaugurated. And yet, the “Big Lie” that the election was “stolen” and/or “rigged” by a cabal of thousands of conspirators continues to eat away at Donald Trump. It is, according to Trump “The Crime of the Century!”

Donald Trump Angry

Never mind that this cabal would have to include participants from both the Democratic and Republican parties, both of whom control the fifty states that have certified the voting results. And multiple nations would also have to be among the anti-Trump colluders, including Venezuela, Ukraine, and Germany. Sixty judges, many of whom were appointed by Trump, and the Supreme Court as well, are, in Trump’s diseased mind, all out to deny him a second term as president.

And on it goes. On Saturday morning Trump posted a series of comments on his laughably lame new blog (which was down for most of the morning). These bug-eyed outbursts speak for themselves as to the mental deterioration of the Former Guy. It went something like this…

“As our Country is being destroyed, both inside and out, the Presidential Election of 2020 will go down as THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY!”

This is a “crime” that has no evidence whatsoever to prove that it was committed. Dozens of courts dismissed it as unsupported, frivolous, and totally lacking legal foundation.

“The 2020 Presidential Election was, by far, the greatest Election Fraud in the history of our Country. The good news is, the American people get it and the truth is rapidly coming out! Had Mike Pence had the courage to send the Electoral College vote back to states for recertification, and had Mitch McConnell fought for us instead of being the weak and pathetic leader he is, we would right now have a Republican President who would be VETOING the horrific Socialistic Bills that are rapidly going through Congress.”

Trump is actually correct that “the American people get it.” By significant majorities (62%), voters believe that the election was free and fair. Although gullible Republicans continue to buy the Big Lie myth. Despite that, Trump is still mad at Mike Pence and Mitch McConnell for not finding a way to violate the law and declare Trump president-for-life.

“Fox News is afraid to cover it—there is rarely a mention. Likewise, Newsmax has been virtually silent on this subject because they are intimidated by threats of lawsuits. One America News (OAN), one of the fastest growing networks on television, and the “hottest”, is doing a magnificent job of exposing the massive fraud that took place. The story is only getting bigger and at some point it will be impossible for the weak and/or corrupt media not to cover. Thank you to OAN and other brave American Patriots. It is all happening quickly!”

In addition to the weaklings that Trump has branded as traitors, he is also perturbed at his Ministry of Propaganda (aka Fox News) and the even more sycophantic Newsmax. But there is good reason to be concerned about lawsuits considering that Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic have both filed defamation suits against Fox News and Newsmax. However, OAN is hardly a fast growing network. It has so few viewers that it isn’t even tracked in the Nielsen ratings.

Trump’s persistence in continuing his futile war on democracy is only making him and the GOP look ever more delusional. Which wasn’t that difficult to begin with. The House Republican minority leader, Kevin McCarthy, told Sean Hannity this week that “I don’t think anybody is questioning the legitimacy of the presidential election.” Someone should introduce McCarthy to Trump. Their shared inability to comprehend reality might make them perfect match.

HOLY SHHH: Trump’s Baseball Boycott Babble on Newsmax is Totally Incoherent

The current news cycle is bursting with critical issues that are important to the American people. We are still in the midst of a deadly pandemic. Congress just passed a $1.9 trillion stimulus bill and is considering infrastructure legislation that could run up another $2.2 Trillion. A nationally significant trial is in progress in Minneapolis deciding the fate of the police officer accused of murdering George Floyd. But right-wing media has other priorities.

Donald Trump, Insane, Straight Jacket

Naturally networks like Fox News, Newsmax, and OANN are only concerned with matters that they can spin to bash President Biden and other Democrats. So their top stories aren’t any of those itemized above. Instead, they are obsessed with the notion that Biden might have had something to do with Major League Baseball moving their All-Star Game from Atlanta to Denver. That relocation was wholly the decision of the MLB, due to Georgia passing a bill designed to suppress the voter rights of Democrats in general, and people of color in particular.

In an especially revealing example of the intellectual vacancy of the conservative position, Trump called in to Newsmax to rant about his displeasure with America’s pastime. Which led to this bizarre exchange:

Heather Childers: So, should we boycott baseball?
Trump: Well, I am just not interested in baseball for the last number of years. It’s just not appropriate. You want to find a game. It’s on every channel, and yet you can’t find anything. It’s the weirdest thing. It used to be a nice easy thing to follow. And you know what I mean by that. It was on one network and it was nice and good and beautiful. Today you don’t even know what the hell you’re watching. So I would say “Boycott baseball?” Why not?

WUT? So now Trump thinks that baseball is “not appropriate”? And he can’t find a game on TV because it’s on every channel? It’s abundantly clear that Trump doesn’t know what the hell he’s saying. But he still concludes that the sport must be boycotted in order to make it “nice and good and beautiful” again. This is the same guy who has been demeaning Biden as struggling cognitively. (although even a Fox News poll shows that most voters say that Trump is the one who is mentally unsound).

[NOTE: Heather Childers is a former Fox News presenter who once wondered in a tweet whether Obama threatened To kill Chelsea Clinton.]

As for Fox News, their White House correspondent, Peter Doocy, was the victim of yet another “Psaki Bomb” after he asked Biden’s press secretary, Jen Psaki about the MLB situation:

Doocy: Is the White House concerned Major League Baseball is moving their All-Star Game to Colorado, where voting regulations are very similar to Georgia?
Psaki: Well, let me refute the first points you made. First let me say on Colorado, Colorado allows you register on election day. Colorado has voting by mail where they send to 100% of their people in the state who are eligible. […] I think it’s important to remember the context here. The Georgia bill is built on a lie.

The right-wing press is not the least bit concerned about the voting rights aspect of this story. They are only worried about whether the corporations, that conservatives used to regard as reliable sources of support and donations, are now cowering under the weight of supposedly fearsome Democratic bullies. Consequently, people like the GOP Senate Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell, are lambasting corporations and threatening to revoke the tax benefits that Republicans have showered on them for decades.

Donald Trump has even weighed in to direct his cult followers to boycott not just baseball, but Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, JPMorgan Chase, UPS, Merck, and numerous other companies that had the audacity to stand up for voting rights when their customers demanded it.

Nevertheless, conservatives are adamant that somehow all of this is Biden’s fault. The Republican National Committee even tweeted that Biden ordered the MLB to move the All-Star Game. But the funny thing about that is that the video they posted proved that he did no such thing. He merely expressed his support for a decision that they were making themselves. But right-wingers have never let themselves be bogged down by reality before. Why should they start now?

Mitch McConnell and the GOP are Suddenly Against Big Business Getting Political

Remember when the Republican candidate for President of the United States declared that “corporations are people, my friend” That was the ultra-capitalist, Mitt Romney, standing up for the constitutional rights of business enterprises and the wealthy upper-crusters who ran them. It was an extension of the Corporate Personhood doctrine and the precedents established by the right-wing majority of the Supreme Court in the Citizens United case.

Donald Trump, Republican, GOP

These legal mutations gave corporations human attributes that entitled them to protections under the Constitution for anything from religious practice to political sponsorship. The Republican Party hailed these developments as beneficial to democracy, despite the fact that the only beneficiaries were the wealthy executive class and the Republicans they supported. It allowed virtually unlimited donations to political candidates without disclosing the source of the funds.

People like the Republican leader in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, were the biggest cheerleaders for these brazenly unfair rules that disadvantaged average Americans and the organizations that worked on their behalf. It opened the door for corporations to run roughshod over the interests of the people. and that’s precisely the way McConnell et al liked it.

Until now. The recent efforts by states like Georgia and Texas to pass legislation aimed at suppressing the votes of Democrats in general, and people of color in particular, has resulted in a backlash from companies that recognize the risk they face if they support such discriminatory practices. Many companies (nearly 200) took public positions opposing the bills in Georgia. Delta Airlines and Coca-Cola were among the most vocal. Major League Baseball pulled their All-Star Game from Atlanta. This triggered the King of Cancel Culture, Donald Trump, to lash out at them and propose several other companies that he ordered his cult followers to boycott.

Obediently chasing after Trump, McConnell is now joining the anti-corporation confederacy that he used to bow down before. In a statement issued Monday, McConnell complained that…

“We are witnessing a coordinated campaign by powerful and wealthy people to mislead and bully the American people.”

Funny, that never bothered him before. McConnell continued with what he is now calling the “Big Lie.” And it isn’t Trump’s flagrant and dangerous falsehood about Joe Biden stealing the election. Nope. In McConnell’s world it’s…

“The President has claimed repeatedly that state-level debates over voting procedures are worse than Jim Crow or ‘Jim Crow on steroids.’ Nobody actually believes this.”

Actually, President Biden has never claimed that even once. He never said that “debates” are worse than Jim Crow. He said the GOP views and legislation are. And millions of American believe that. But McConnell wasn’t through. His statement continued to claim that…

“Our private sector must stop taking cues from the Outrage-Industrial Complex. Americans do not need or want big business to amplify disinformation or react to every manufactured controversy with frantic left-wing signaling.”

If one didn’t know better, one might presume that McConnell’s “Outrage-Industrial Complex” was a reference to Fox News. Of course, it’s absurd to suggest that he’d ever think such a thing. More to the point, McConnell is right that Americans don’t want big business amplifying disinformation. Which is exactly what they’ve been doing for years while financially backing Republicans. However, that isn’t what they’re doing now.

The companies speaking out in opposition to the anti-voting bills in Georgia and elsewhere are responding like any free-market enterprise would when their customers have informed them that supporting those bills would produce a consumer revolt. This isn’t a corporate-driven political action. It is customer-driven, and the corporations are exercising their rights to respond to marketplace conditions.

Republicans used to be in favor of that. But not, apparently, when it contradicts the goals of the Wingnut Contingent that they represent. In that event, McConnell and the GOP are now threatening their former Big Business allies, saying that…

“Corporations will invite serious consequences if they become a vehicle for far-left mobs to hijack our country from outside the constitutional order. Businesses must not use economic blackmail to spread disinformation and push bad ideas that citizens reject at the ballot box.”

You have to wonder what “consequences” McConnell has in mind to punish the companies that are responding to the market forces that make them profitable. It’s also curious what “constitutional order” he thinks they have strayed from. But worst of all, it’s McConnell who is resorting to “economic blackmail” in these very threats. He wants to force those companies to conform to his will. But given the choice between millions of their customers and the losers of the most recent election, his impotent yelping is unlikely to yield the obedience he craves.
