Trump Can’t Imagine the NYPD Defending the City If His Indictment Triggers Riots By His Followers

There is a broad consensus among legal analysts in the media that Alvin Bragg and the Manhattan District Attorney’s office is close to announcing that it will indict Donald Trump for violating financial and campaign laws. The case revolves around his having paid $130,000.00 to adult film star, Stormy Daniels, as “hush money” to buy her silence prior to the 2016 presidential election. Ironically, Trump’s own attorney pretty much admitted his guilt last week on MSNBC.

Donald Trump

True to form, Trump has dived fathead first into the speculation, offering his (almost certainly false) assertion that he will be arrested on Tuesday. Beginning this weekend, along with his frantic yowling, Trump posted twenty-one (21!) comments on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, whining about the impending legal peril he faces.

The common thread through all of his gripes is about how unfair it is for him to be persecuted (for his criminal acts), and how important it is for his cult followers to protest on his behalf. Of course, what Trump means by “protest” is “riot.” “THEY’RE KILLING OUR NATION,” Trump shouted in all-caps, “AS WE SIT BACK & WATCH.”

That display of derangement continued on Monday with another flurry of frenzied posts, including one that sought to suck up to New York law enforcement in the hopes that they would renounce their duties and come to his rescue. Trump shrieked in his caps-locked fury…


Seriously, can you imagine it? Trump thinks that sweet-squawking the cops will insure their blind loyalty to him. However, he is blatantly lying about their past support. The NYPD never endorsed him for president. It was just the New York Police Benevolent Association, a right-leaning police union that did so. Likewise, he was never named “Man of the the Year” by the NYPD. That was just the Police Athletic League of New York.

More to the point, notice that Trump is both praising and insulting the NYPD. On the one hand, he basks in the glow of his fake commendations. Then he reckons that they will shirk their duties to protect the public in favor of baby-sitting him. He also accuses them of failing in their mission to keep citizens safe by “ALLOW[ing] MURDERERS & OTHER VIOLENT CRIMINALS TO FREELY ROAM THE SIDEWAKS OF N.Y.” They should truly appreciate that dismal characterization of their job performance.

In addition to those disrespectful insults, Trump called the D.A. and his staff “ANIMALS AND THUGS… THAT ARE PURPOSEFULLY DESTROYING OUR COUNTRY!” He also lied that Bragg and former D.A., Cy Vance, “took a pass,” on indicting him; that Bragg was funded by George Soros; that the Grand Jury broke the law by interviewing his former attorney, Michael Cohen; that President Biden “stuffed” the D.A.’s office with Justice Department lawyers; and that the statute of limitations expired.

In addition to being false, those assertions are entirely irrelevant to any pending prosecution. The only legal consideration in deciding to indict is whether there is evidence that Trump broke the law.

Even if everything Trump is babbling about was true – which would be a first for Trump – it wouldn’t impact the course of the investigation. It would just be more of Trump’s pathetic whining and cowardly victimhood as he lashes out at public servants doing their jobs on behalf of the citizenry and in pursuit of law and order. In other words, more of Trump being Trump.

Fox News Flunky Peter Doocy Deliberately Distorts Biden’s Pro-Police Calls for Unity

The Republican Party has become so deeply damaged by Donald Trump and his gargantuan, though fragile, ego, that they are abandoning the principles that were once the core of their political doctrine. For decades the GOP tried to pass itself off as the “law and order” party, despite the fact that many more of their members have been charged and convicted of crimes.

Fox News, Peter Doocy

On Tuesday President Biden was in Pennsylvania to deliver a speech about public safety. He was taking head on what Republicans have traditionally claimed was a policy they believed was their personal property. However, a key component of Biden’s message was that “When it comes to public safety in this nation, the answer is not defund the police, it’s fund the police.”

Biden also condemned the GOP’s support for Trump, even after he incited a violent insurrection in Washington, D.C., during which more than 140 law enforcement officers were injured. And he made reference to Sen. Lindsey Graham’s unconscionable threat that there will be “riots in the streets” if Trump is held to account for his cavalcade of criminality.

As Biden was speaking, Fox News, true to form, cut away from the speech to fling unfounded criticisms at him. Among those interrupting Biden to bash him was Fox’s Senior Nepotistic White House correspondent, Peter Doocy. And as is required by Fox News, he offered a purposefully dishonest representation of Biden’s comments in a deceptively brief clip…

Biden: Whose side are you on?
Doocy: Compare the volume there with this measured line from the inaugural address. The President said “We can join forces, stop the shouting, and lower the temperature.” The President said, on his first day, he thinks unity is the path forward, is now telling people instead to pick a side.

There is so much wrong with that short burst of bullpucky. First of all, does Doocy really think that an analysis of the volume of Biden’s voice is some sort of profound insight? More to the point, Doocy is deliberately misrepresenting Biden’s remarks. Biden was not asking anyone to pick a side with respect to a political party, as Doocy implied. He was asking people to choose police over violent rioters; respect for the law over lawless hostility. And Doocy knows that.

For the record, here is a longer clip of Biden’s remarks that presents them in context…

“So let me say this to my MAGA Republican friends in Congress. Don’t tell me you support law enforcement if you won’t condemn what happened on [January] 6th. Can’t do it. For god’s sake, whose side are you on? Whose side are you on? You’re either on the side of the mob or the side of police. You can’t be pro-law enforcement and pro-insurrection. You can’t be a party of law and order and call the people who attacked police patriots.

It is also important to note that unity is not a goal that must be met unconditionally. While there is merit to uniting Americans behind efforts to improve their lives and advance the interests of the nation, no American should seek unity with violent insurrectionists, Nazis, racists, traitors, or others who reject our laws and Constitution.

Finally, there is surely no need to form a unifying bond with disgraced former presidents who steal highly sensitive national security materials, store them insecurely at their resort/hotel, and lie to the FBI about having them. Certainly we can all unify behind that.

Trump’s Feeble Effort to Reform Policing Validates the Protests He Condemned

Three weeks after the murder of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis, America’s streets are still teeming with outraged citizens who are no longer willing to tolerate such injustices. It’s an unprecedented and sustained demand for change that has been fueled by a string of atrocities and populated by a truly diverse cross-section of Americans.

Donald Trump, Police

Conspicuously absent from this nationwide (worldwide) outpouring of grief and determination is the President of the United States, Donald Trump, whose only contribution has been to malign the protesters as “rioters,” “looters,” “thugs,” and even terrorists.” Trump has repeatedly assaulted both the protesters and local governments with noxious threats of deploying the military against the American people. In Trump’s view these concerned citizens are enemies of the state simply because they oppose police brutality and are willing to act on their constitutional rights.

So for three weeks the people have clearly stated their intentions to compel meaningful change. And during that time, despite (or because of) his stubborn and bellicose opposition, Trump has seen his approval ratings decline into record low territory. The American people overwhelmingly support Black Lives Matter and the ongoing protests lobbying for reform.

Consequently, Trump has pivoted in an attempt to stop the hemorrhaging of his 2020 reelection campaign. He has apparently been convinced that he needs to grab onto this whirling tornado of dissent and score some undeserved points for himself. To that end he has hurriedly patched together a pitifully weak policing reform initiative that fails to address many of the core issues and solutions.

Trump’s latest exercise in hypocrisy comes in the form a unilateral move that Republicans regarded as an act of dictatorship when President Obama did it. His new executive order (EO) – the 162nd of his presidency – is an attempt to upstage congressional efforts to legitimately reform police practices by appropriating initiatives proposed by Democrats. However, this EO will be less comprehensive and will not have the force of law behind it. It can also be reversed or watered down by another executive order.

Additionally, Trump’s EO is a blatant contradiction of nearly everything he’s said about “law and order” since the Black Lives Matter demonstrations began. Virtually every public comment he’s made has condemned Americans who have taken to the streets to protest police brutality and unequal justice. He has never acknowledged the systemic racism that permeates many institutions, and this EO doesn’t do so either. But the fact that he felt it necessary to take this step is actually a validation of the demonstrations and proof that they were required to force forward movement on these issues.

Trump’s Rose Garden speech, before a nearly totally white audience, spent far more time praising the police than criticizing the injustice and violence that his EO was supposedly drafted to address. And of course, he politicized the event by applauding himself as the great emancipator. He also heralded imaginary achievements with the economy, the coronavirus, and other matters that have nothing to do with law enforcement reform. And only Trump could say that “We’re fighting for school choice, which really is the civil rights of all time in this country,” during a speech meant to ease concerns about racist cops. It was a painfully obvious screed of propaganda aimed at boosting his floundering reelection prospects and nothing more.

Simultaneously, Trump falsely asserted that President Obama and Joe Biden “never even tried” to do anything about systemic racism. In truth, every time Obama tried to advance those matters he was blocked by Republicans and accused of being racist himself. The Trump administration actually repealed Obama’s reforms by executive fiat, slashed funding for community policing, and refused to enforce consent decrees won in court by Obama’s Justice Department. Obama also impaneled a task force to study the problems plaguing policing in December of 2014. In March of 2015, they issued a detailed report with specific policy recommendations. At the time, Trump was tweeting about how Obama was anti-police:

That tweet was in response to Obama’s remarks criticizing the failure of grand juries to indict police officers for the killings of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and Eric Garner in Staten Island, New York. Five years later Trump is still avoiding the real issues, and still doing nothing to prevent future tragedies because he only cares about how he can further his own personal and political interests. And anyone who fails to recognize that now is a fully indoctrinated disciple of the Cult of Trump and, sadly, beyond help.
