Tucker Carlson Rages for 12 Minutes Against Biden Nominating a Black Woman to the Supreme Court

On Wednesday evening Tucker Carlson of Fox News took a short break from his regularly scheduled parade of projectile propaganda. That meant briefly setting aside his slobbering support for the totalitarianism of Vladimir Putin’s Russia, his deadly pro-COVID, anti-vaccine disinformation, and his embrace of Donald Trump’s treasonous January 6th insurrectionists.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Klan

But he had what he certainly regards as a righteous reason to interrupt that stew of hatred and lies. Carlson’s latest tirade was an elaborate extension of the notorious white nationalism that has made him so popular with the avowed racists that he insists deserve to be loved.

The trigger for this pivot into (even more) prejudice was the news that Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer is retiring, and that President Biden intends to keep his campaign promise to nominate a Black woman to the Court. Nothing could be more abhorrent to Carlson and his cadre of conservative Klanists at Fox News and in the Republican Party.

To make sure that no one missed the point, Carlson devoted a full twelve minutes to this subject. It was a rancid regurgitation of the racism that has become the hallmark of his program, as well as the official doctrine of Fox News and GOP. Carlson’s outrage was unrestrained. Also unhinged, unreasonable and untruthful (video below for those with strong stomachs):

“‘I will appoint a Black woman to the Court.’ That was Biden’s promise. Alright. But which Black woman exactly? Biden didn’t tell us. Biden didn’t mention the Supreme Court nominee’s legal qualifications, or judicial philosophy, or ability to perform one of the most important jobs in the country. He didn’t even tell us if she was a nice person. All he said was she’s gonna be Black and she’s gonna be female. Because to him that’s all that matters.”

To no one’s surprise, Carlson is lying. Biden has often spoken of the qualifications required to be a Supreme Court Justice. He has likewise expressed his opinions about judicial philosophy. Carlson’s attention span is limited to only what will fit his miniscule and pre-determined mindset. But he wasn’t through making an asinine bigot of himself. He felt it necessary to prove his ability to muddy any discourse with patently idiotic rhetoric:

“Where is Biden’s Pacific Islander nominee? Why isn’t there an American Indian on the court? Or a gender queer? Or someone from the chronic fatigue syndrome community. Or a justice with cognitive disabilities? Why isn’t there an Afghan refugee under consideration? You can laugh, but suddenly these are entirely fair questions.”

Indeed, we can laugh. But we’re laughing at Carlson (as usual), not with him. However, his ludicrous assertions that every possible demographic minority be represented on a nine person panel isn’t really funny. It is offensive. Particularly to the Black Americans who have been underrepresented and/or excluded from such institutions for decades. And Carlson seems to think that efforts to provide equity are illegitimate if they don’t include people like him (i.e. those with cognitive disabilities).

Carlson went on to mock Biden’s intention to have a judiciary that “looks like America.” And he took the time to malign the qualifications of each of the potential nominees being considered. He concluded, in his blatant bigotry, that not a single one of these accomplished Black women were suited to sit on the Court. But he did have another infantile suggestion:

“So you have to wonder at this point, since we’re going by skin color and gender, why Joe Biden is ignoring the obvious choice. Why doesn’t Joe Biden strike a real blow for equity and nominate Bridget Floyd? That was George Floyd’s sister. She is not a judge or a lawyer or whatever, but in this case, who cares? Clearly, that’s not the point anymore – this law stuff.”

No offense to Ms. Floyd, but she isn’t a serious contender for this post. Nevertheless, that’s the level of seriousness with which Carlson takes these matters. He purposefully turns the discussion into a farce, because that’s where his brand of obnoxious idiocy works best. He could never engage in a substantive debate because his intellectual skills are too riddled with rancor and loathing. And that’s just what he was hired to peddle to the prejudiced pissants who watch Fox News by the prejudiced posers who run it.

UPDATE: For Carlson’s benefit, here is what President Biden said in his official announcement regarding the appointment of a nominee to fill the seat of Justice Breyer:

“The person I will nominate will be someone with extraordinary qualifications, character, experience, and integrity, and that person will be the first Black woman ever nominated to the United States Supreme Court.”

Trump Celebrates Martin Luther King Day By Calling MSNBC’s Joy Reid a Stupid Racist

On the federal holiday commemorating the birth of civil rights icon Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, the nation is called upon to reflect on King’s message of love, economic justice, and the nonviolent pursuit of equality. King’s legacy is one that inspires most Americans to join the crusade for moral enrichment and unity.

Donald Trump, Martin Luther King

Sadly, there is still a small but significant minority that fails to grasp the merit of the movement that King inspired. And the leader of that rabble of regressives is Donald Trump. So it shouldn’t surprise anyone to learn that Trump stained this memorial day with the sort of rancid rhetoric that is his hallmark. Trump posted a statement (via his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill) that read…

“Will Morning Joe be canceled? He and Mika’s ratings are very low—they are having an extremely hard time finding an audience to listen to the Fake News they spurn. Losing them would be very sad—hope it doesn’t happen!”

Trump’s attack on MSNBC’s Morning Joe is typical Trumpian media bashing driven by vengeance and jealousy. He continues to demonstrate that he is obsessed with ratings as a measure of quality, as well as his ignorance on the subject. What’s more, his illiteracy is revealed again in his misuse of the word “spurn.” Trump’s assertion that the Morning Joe folks “spurn” fake news literally means that they reject it. So… thank you? And of course he appends a passive aggressive “hope” to confirm his enduring immaturity. But he was just getting started. And here is where Trump couldn’t contain his seething bigotry as he went after MSNBC host Joy Reid:

“On another front, looks like Unjoy Reid, the racist commentator on MSDNC (MSNBC), is toast. Her stupidity is only surpassed by her absolute lack of television persona. She never had it, and never will. The only thing she’s good at is spewing racist hate but obviously, no one is listening!”

The raging hatred in Trump’s statement is blatant and nauseating. And it isn’t the first time that he’s maligned Reid. For this tirade Trump began by childishly mocking Reid’s first name. And he couldn’t even think of an original epithet. So he recycled the one he’s been using against the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection, which he, as the emotionally stunted adult that he is, calls the “unselect” Committee. Then he devolved further into bitter and baseless insults, attacking Reid as “racist” and “stupid.” Ironically, those are words that are far better descriptors of Trump.

It is unclear what triggered this attack on Reid, one of the few African-American women hosting television news programs. But it seems unlikely that it is just a coincidence that Trump lashed out at her on MLK Day without any discernible provocation. Perhaps he’s still upset that his favorite propaganda dispenser, OAN, is going to be dropped by DirecTV, their biggest distributor.

So maybe Trump is just swinging wildly at a cable news network that he regards as enemy (although he’s revealing that he watches it an awful lot). Or maybe he’s just a racist pig who gets off on spreading hate and denigrating women (as Fox News does) every chance he gets. Either way, his noxious attitude and insensitivity toward this solemn holiday is precisely what one would expect of Trump. So at least he is consistent.

Fox News Edits Out White Nationalists in Article Pitting Fictional Antifa Against Trump’s America First

Last Friday Fox News deliberately and deceptively edited a video of President Biden to make it appear as if he made a racially insensitive remark. He didn’t. Fox News purposefully removed the part of Biden’s speech that provided the context and left the false impression. That’s not an uncommon tactic used by Fox to slander their political foes. And it happened again just one day later.

Fox News, KKK

On Saturday there was a protest at Gracie Mansion, the official residence of the Mayor of New York City, ostensibly in opposition to COVID-19 vaccine mandates. Naturally, Fox News covered this event without disclosing that they impose vaccine mandates on their employees. But that wasn’t the worst part of this pseudo-journalism.

The story, as it currently appears on the Fox News website, features the headline, “Antifa members clash with anti-vaccine protesters outside NYC’s Gracie Mansion.” It’s opening sentence states that “Antifa radicals and anti-vaccine protesters appeared to clash Saturday night outside Gracie Mansion, the mayoral residence in New York City.”

However, that is a significantly different presentation from the story as it appeared when it was first published. Originally the article’s title was “Antifa members clash with White nationalists over COVID vaccine mandate outside NYC’s Gracie Mansion.” The URL for the article still reflects its original title referencing the organizers as White nationalists.

That wasn’t the only undisclosed edit. The original article began quite differently, stating that…

“Antifa protesters and a White nationalist group appeared to clash at an anti-vaccine mandate protest held outside of Gracie Mansion in New York City on Saturday night.”

“Far-right activist Nick Fuentes organized the protest against vaccine mandates outside of Gracie Mansion on Saturday night, where Antifa groups also showed up to confront his group, the “Groyper Army. The Anti-Defamation League considers the “Groyper Army” as a white supremacist group.”

None of that is the article in its current state. In fact, the words “white nationalist” are not in the current article at all. Nor is the reference to the “Groyper Army,” a group described by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) as “a loose network of alt right figures who are vocal supporters of white supremacist and “America First” podcaster Nick Fuentes.” The White nationalist language also was preserved in an early tweet that Fox News posted to promote the article.

It’s also notable that the photo Fox News used in their promo was not taken at the Saturday protest. It is a stock photo that they have used many times when referring to Antifa.

Fox News, Antifa

The specter of Antifa is mentioned throughout the story. Never mind that Antifa does not exist. There is no such organization. There are no members, or leaders, or headquarters, or agenda, or logo-adorned hoods. At best it’s a loose affiliation of Americans who oppose fascism, like most Americans.

The original article cites the counter-protesters as being from “United Against Racism and Racism NYC.” That, however, was entirely removed from the story. Although the article does mention that Fox News attempted to get an official response, but that “A representative for Antifa did not respond to Fox News.” Perhaps that’s because it doesn’t exist or have any representatives.

This is a blatant example of Fox News manipulating their story, after the fact, to make it consistent with their editorial mission and their right-wing propaganda narrative. The original version connecting anti-vaccine activists – and Donald Trump’s America First thugs – to White supremacists could not be allowed to stand. But they apparently aren’t aware that the Internet preserves everything, including their dishonesty and disinformation.

Fox News Maliciously Edits Biden Video to Falsely Portray Him as Racist

The obsessive compulsions of Fox News to viciously malign Joe Biden at every opportunity often results in shameless acts of flagrant dishonesty. And when they aren’t lying, some of their attacks are downright hysterical. For instance, their ludicrous criticism that Biden lacked stamina compared to Donald Trump because he rides bikes.

Fox News, Bullshit Factory

In yet another demonstration that Fox News cannot be regarded as a legitimate journalistic enterprise, the network’s morning show, Fox and Friends, ran a video clip that sought to slander President Biden as a racist (video below). The clip showed Biden delivering a Veterans Day speech. During the speech Biden took a moment to wish Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s father (a veteran) a happy birthday.

The “Curvy Couch” potatoes of Fox and Friends were taken aback at what co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy said was “President Biden facing backlash for a comment during his Veterans Day address.” Then she introduced the clip showing Biden saying that…

“I have adopted the attitude of the great Negro at the time pitcher … name was Satchel Paige.”

This sent shivers of horror through the Fox News studio, and then across the right-wing mediaverse that disseminated it far and wide. The problem, however, is that the video Fox News aired was purposefully edited to create a false and derogatory impression. What Biden actually said was that…

“I’ve adopted the attitude of the great Negro — at the time, pitcher in the Negro Leagues — went on to become a great pitcher in the pros, in the Major League Baseball after Jackie Robinson. His name was Satchel Paige.”

So it’s clear that Biden was not referring to Satchel Paige. He was referring to the what was once called “the Negro Leagues” of baseball. Well, it’s clear to anyone who saw the unedited clip. And it’s notable that what Fox cut out was taken from the middle of the quote without any acknowledgement of the edit. So they can’t simply excuse themselves by claiming that they truncated the quote for time. Even Sean Hannity played the unedited clip (although still applying the same dishonest framing), which makes the Fox and Friends fabrication even worse.

Their intent is unmistakable. They are trying to create a thoroughly contrived impression that Biden is a racist. And they are providing their phony “reporting” so that it can be adopted by the rest of the Republican confederacy of mudslingers.

That’s working to some extent as it has already been adopted by Greg Kelly of Newsmax, who accused Biden of using “an old fashioned version of THE N WORD.” And Lavern Spicer, a GOP congressional candidate, told the same lie in a fundraising pitch. And Texas congressman and former Trump White House physician, Ronnie Jackson, joined in. So did many of the right’s Internet propagandists such as Tucker Carlson’s Daily Caller, Breitbart News, and Townhall.

This is typical behavior from Fox News. They know that they can’t make substantive arguments based on facts to advance their extremist agenda. So they manufacture pseudo-scandals to achieve their nefarious goals. And if that means deliberately falsifying video or other documents in order to make a point, they have no ethical resistance to doing so.

CRTeed Off: Tucker Carlson Admits that He Doesn’t Know WTF He’s Talking About

Tucker Carlson may be the most dangerous, racist, neo-fascist, demagogue on American television. His nightly tirades on Fox News are riddled with flagrant falsehoods, hateful histrionics, and crackpot conspiracy theories. Which explains how he became the face of Fox News and the primary architect of its editorial policy.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Bullshit Factory

Carlson’s rancid rhetoric has recently focused on his preposterous and evidence-free assertion that Donald Trump’s insurrection on January 6th was a “false flag” operation. He has also been promoting the grossly racist “white replacement theory.” And he relentlessly spreads deadly disinformation about the COVID pandemic.

However, on Wednesday evening Carlson made a surprising confession when discussing the Republican Party’s latest manufactured controversy, critical race theory (CRT). Carlson admitted that…

“I’ve never figured out what critical race theory is, to be totally honest, after a year of talking about it. They’re teaching that some races are morally superior to others, that some are inherently sinful and some are inherently saintly, and that’s immoral to teach that ’cause it’s wrong. That would be my view, and I think most voters’ view.”

So Carlson finally tells his viewers the truth about his ignorance of a subject that he’s been seething about hysterically for more than a year. Yet in the same breath he pretends to “know” that CRT teaches moral superiority. Which is not remotely related to the actual study of CRT. For the record, CRT is a field of study of that is defined as an “attempt to understand how victims of systemic racism are affected by cultural perceptions of race.” Carlson went on to say that…

“Schools are teaching your children that some races are inherently superior to other races. That’s the definition of racism, that some children are born with the stain of sin, inherently. That’s Nazi stuff.”

It’s cute that Carlson brings up “Nazi stuff,” a subject with which he is intimately familiar as it represents the core of his personal philosophy. Although he may not be the best person to complain about teaching that “some races are inherently superior to other races” when he so frequently exalts his European heritage over that of the “dirty” invaders he fears are being imported to replace him. And as a professed “Christian,” Carlson better reread his bible to bone up on that business about being “born with the stain of [original] sin.”

This would be a good time to remind everyone that Carlson was defended in a defamation case by his own Fox News lawyers, who successfully argued that “given Mr. Carlson’s reputation, any reasonable viewer ‘arrive[s] with an appropriate amount of skepticism’ about the statements he makes.” Unfortunately, there aren’t any reasonable viewers in Carlson’s audience to be skeptical of his wretched reputation. Just a bunch of Deplorables who believe everything repulsive he says.

Breaking Down the Crocumentary By Tucker Carlson that Glorifies ‘False Flag’ Insurrection

Tucker Carlson and Fox News are at it again. Not satisfied with disseminating deadly disinformation about the coronavirus that has led to tens (hundreds?) of thousands of preventable deaths, or advancing the racist “white replacement theory” to malign immigrants, or undermining American democracy by aiding and abetting Donald Trump’s “Big Lie” that the 2020 election was “rigged,” Carlson and Company are now exalting domestic terrorists and white supremacists.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Dictator

Carlson is promoting a crock documentary that purports to tell “The True Story Behind 1/6” That, of course, is a lie. The title sequence is crammed with ludicrous talking point subtitles alluding to “The War on Terror 2.0,” and “The Plot Against the People,” and a “Patriot Purge” All of that wingnut sloganeering is deliberately inflammatory code intended to incite further violence. As are the opening frames of the trailer that includes video of the police shooting domestic terrorist Ashli Babbitt as she and her militant comrades are attacking law enforcement officers and smashing through the glass door entrance to the Capitol.

The video goes on to feature a quote by Darren Beattie, who left the Trump administration after he was caught at a white nationalist conference. In the video Beattie says that “The domestic war on terror is here. It’s coming after half of the country.” Which is nonsense because not only is there no “domestic war” on these rightist kooks, they don’t comprise anywhere near half the country.

That’s followed by Carlson fear mongering that American soldiers are preparing an assault on citizens here in the U.S. Carlson says that “The helicopters have left Afghanistan. Now they’ve landed here at home.” That in turn is followed by a disembodied voice warning that “The left is hunting the right. Sticking them in Guantanamo Bay, for American citizens, leaving them there to rot.” It goes without saying that that is flagrant fiction. No American is incarcerated at Gitmo. Nor has anyone been waterboarded as is implied by the visual in the video.

Next up is a clip of President Biden saying correctly that “Terrorism from white supremacy is the most lethal threat to to the homeland. […] Not Al Qaeda. White supremacy.” This was an assessment made by the Department of Homeland Security in September of 2020, during the Trump administration. However, Carlson is mocking Biden as his words play over archive footage of a KKK parade.

Finally, the trailer concludes with a bizarre and baseless allegation by a disgraced former Army captain, Emily Rainey, who is being investigated for her participation in the insurrection. She says that “False flags have happened in this country, one of which may have been January 6.” Naturally, there is no evidence whatsoever to support this reckless accusation. But it is one that Carlson has made before, specifically charging the FBI with “orchestrating” the violence. The background visual for this quote is footage of the January 6th insurrection. That segues into a shot of helicopters ominously approaching the Capitol dome with the Battle Hymn of the Republic playing…“Glory, glory hallelujah. His truth is marching on.” What do you suppose that is implying?

The key question raised by Carlson’s propaganda pic is, how can the insurrectionists be both patriotic protesters fighting to MAGA, and false flag provocateurs conspiring against freedom? In order to follow his logic you would have to believe that the same mob that stormed the Capitol are simultaneously heroes and traitors. It’s a paradox that can only reside in the warped mind of a Trump cultist.

This abomination is not just the work of Tucker Carlson. The whole of the Fox News enterprise is responsible, including the network’s CEO Suzanne Scott, president Jay Wallace, and corporate masters Lachlan and Rupert Murdoch. Their culpability was acknowledged by the two Republican members of the House Select Committee Investigating the January 6th Insurrection:

Liz Cheney: “It appears that Fox News is giving Tucker Carlson a platform to spread the same type of lies that provoked violence on January 6. As Fox News knows, the election wasn’t stolen and January 6 was not a ‘false flag’ operation,”

Adam Kinzinger: “Anyone working for @FoxNews must speak out. This is disgusting. It appears @foxnews isn’t even pretending anymore.”

Don’t hold your breath. Fox News is not going to “speak out” or take any action against Carlson because they agree with him 100%. This program isn’t a rogue operation by Carlson. It is fully supported by, paid for, and proudly broadcast by Fox News, with the approval of its editors, executives, and owners. And they are as responsible for the harm it causes as Carlson. But there is something you can do about it: UnFox My Cable Box!

Perjury Watch: Trump Ordered to Give Deposition in Lawsuit for Inciting Racist Violence

There are numerous legal cliffs over which Donald Trump is presently hanging by the sheerest of threads. Criminal prosecutors are investigating him for election interference in Georgia, financial corruption in New York, and insurrection in Washington, D.C. And there are also a couple civil suits in progress over his alleged sexual harassment and assault.

Donald Trump

Among the pending cases is one in which Trump has been accused of fomenting racial violence against Latinos and immigrants at his MAGA cult rallies. Those are the rallies wherein he called Mexicans “criminals and rapists,” and he advocated for “roughing up” protestors at his hate mongering events. Now a judge has ordered Trump to give a deposition scheduled for next week:

“Former President Donald Trump must sit for a videotaped deposition next week as part of a lawsuit involving his anti-immigrant rhetoric, a judge in the Bronx ordered.

“A group of Mexican protesters said they were assaulted during a rally outside Trump Tower in September 2015 over the then-candidate’s comments that Mexican immigrants were criminals and rapists.”

This sort of deposition would be concerning to anyone accused of inciting violence. But in Trump’s case it is much more problematic. That’s because Trump is a pathological liar who is incapable of telling the truth for more than a few sentences at a time. Consequently, it is a near certainty that Trump will perjure himself repeatedly.

It will be interesting to see how Trump tries to dodge this deposition. He knows that he can’t refrain from lying because, even if he didn’t have a psychological compulsion to do so, it would mean having to confess his guilt. At the very least, expect Trump to post some furious tweets (via his proxy) attacking the plaintiffs, the judge, and the press, in a futile attempt to deflect from the facts and his fears.

Trump Spokeswoman Posts Racist Attack on Chair of the January 6th Insurrection Committee

It’s been nine months since Donald Trump’s insurrectionists invaded the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to prevent Congress from carrying out its constitutional duty to certifying the presidential election. Their violent and deadly assault failed to achieve their goal of subverting democracy, but it sparked a treasonous revolt that continues to this day.

Donald Trump Insurrection

Trump has still never conceded his loss to President Biden. And his cult followers still harbor delusions that he will be reinstated to his throne, despite having no evidence of any electoral irregularities and no legal pathway to that end. It’s a dangerous fantasy that led directly to the January 6th insurrection in Washington, D.C. And Trump is continuing to fuel the seditionist fires.

On Tuesday morning, Trump’s spokes-shill, Liz Harrington (whose proxy Trump tweeting is violating Twitter’s rules against circumventing a ban), posted a tweet with a link to an article (in fact, she posted it three times) whose headline read “Jan. 6 commission chairman once sympathized with black secessionist group that killed cops.” Both the headline and the article itself where dishonest, racist, and intended to malign Rep. Bennie Thompson who is the chairman of both the Homeland Security Committee and the Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack. The article by John Solomon began by stating that…

“Fifty years ago as a Mississippi alderman, Bennie Thompson defended the Republic of New Africa and participated in a news conference blaming cops for the group’s violence even as FBI saw group as waging ‘guerrilla warfare.'”

Fifty years ago? That’s how far back Solomon had to dig to find something that he could warp into a pseudo-scandal. Solomon implies that Thompson was somehow affiliated with the Republic of New Africa (RNA), a separatist organization founded in 1968. But Thompson was neither a member, nor a legal representative. He was simply a local elected official who made a rather uncontroversial statement with regard to a police incident. Thompson said that…

“My utmost concern in this matter is to see that people who reside or pass through the town of Bolton,[MS] are treated fairly and given every opportunity afforded them by law. […] My position is that people are entitled to live as they choose, so long as they are law abiding and peaceful.”

Thompson’s explicit reference to being “law abiding and peaceful” didn’t stop Solomon from associating him with every allegation of criminal activity by the RNA. That’s how Solomon works. He is a disgraced propagandist who was even too disreputable for Fox News, who ditched him last year. The network warned their “news” staff that Solomon lacked credibility and engaged in disinformation campaigns. Solomon was also sent packing by The Hill, who said that he had published misleading columns. In some of those columns he was found to have been clandestinely collaborating with a notoriously untrustworthy source, Rudy Giuliani.

Solomon’s article had a single purpose: to personally vilify the Chairman of the Select Committee so that he could later dismiss the Committee’s work. And he chose to pursue that goal by slandering a well respected Black legislative leader with allusions to past crimes that he had nothing to do with.

Then, along comes Trump and his PR flack to hype the fake scandal. Because the last thing that any of these cretins want is for the truth to come out about what happened on January 6th and who was responsible. But with tactics like this they are only revealing how scared they are of the justice that awaits them.

Matt Gaetz Embraces Tucker Carlson’s Vulgar and Racist ‘Great Replacement Theory’ Rant

Florida’s QAnon supporting, alleged sex trafficking congressman, Matt Gaetz, seems more determined than ever to dig himself deeper into a pit of scandal with his every public utterance. After all, this is the cretin whose perversions, lies and criminality are so toxic that even Fox News has blacklisted him.

Matt Gaetz, Prison

Gaetz’s legal and ethical problems may have temporarily receded from the headlines, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t still drowning in the muck of his swampiness. The Daily Beast is reporting that his defensive maneuvers have revealed a “scorched earth” strategy that indicates just how worried he is about his future:

“Gaetz is personally represented by Marc Mukasey, who has defended the Trump Organization in several high-profile disputes […] Separately, the Gaetz campaign—Friends of Matt Gaetz—also looked north when in June it retained New York-based trial lawyer Marc Fernich. Fernich’s client list includes child sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, Mexican drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, and convicted sex trafficker Keith Raniere.”

You’ve got to be pretty desperate to hire the same lawyers who represented Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein – and lost. In the meantime, Gaetz is reaching out to the Trump cultists who are the foundation of his moral and financial support. On Saturday he tweeted a shout-out to the Fox News Senior White Nationalist, Tucker Carlson. His message was a blatant embrace of a Nazi-inspired campaign to foment fear and racist violence:

“@TuckerCarlson is CORRECT about Replacement Theory as he explains what is happening to America.

The ADL is a racist organization.”

Tucker Carlson has been peddling the white replacement theory for months. It’s an abhorrent lie that propounds a plot, often attributed to Jews, that foreigners are being imported to overwhelm the White population socially and politically.

In a recent tirade by Carlson, he specifically targeted George Soros, a billionaire philanthropist who is one of the right’s favorite foils. He was also a Jewish refugee from Nazi anti-Semitism. Carlson’s harangue focused on Soros’ efforts to help resettle our Afghan allies in the United States, which Carlson said was just another means of replacing his White majority with foreign “invaders”.

Shortly afterwards the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) called for Fox News to fire Carlson. That led to this vulgar exchange between Carlson and former Fox News host Megyn Kelly:

Kelly: Today there’s more blowback on whether you’ve been pushing for the “Great Replacement Theory.” You said that this was gonna happen on your show last night. Sure enough, the ADL comes out and comes after you.
Carlson: F**k them! What liars.

When Gaetz tweeted that “TuckerCarlson is CORRECT about Replacement Theory,” this crude and bigoted boorishness is what he was responding to. And his appended charge that “The ADL is a racist organization,” is a nauseating and baseless insult to an organization that has been fighting discrimination and racism for over a hundred years. However, it is precisely what you would expect from a desperate and hateful sleazeball who is struggling to stay out of prison.

Misfortune Teller Trump Predicts America’s Apocalypse in Bonkers OAN Bootlicking

The dissociative defects in Donald Trump’s mangled mental state have been obvious to anyone who has been paying attention for the past few years. He not only fails to have a grasp on reality, but he can’t seem to retain a coherent focus on any topic as he rambles aimlessly through the short list of grievances that he’s fixated on.

Donald Trump Angry

Trump’s psychoses were apparent in the love-sick “interview” he did with One America News Network (OAN) on Friday. With the recently released results of the Cyber Ninja’s Arizona Fraudit still fresh in his frenzied mind, he tried to avoid the fact that the Ninjas were unable to manufacture any evidence of election fraud. In fact, the final tabulation showed an even wider margin of victory for Joe Biden.

Consequently, Trump attempted to paper over that humiliation with some broad strokes about cheating Democrats for which he had no factual basis (video below):

“I don’t want to be naïve. I think they [Democrats] are grossly incompetent. I really do. I don’t think it’s the votes. Because they cheat on the elections. They don’t need votes. They cheat on the elections. I mean, you look at 43,000 votes were found last night. They cheat on elections. When you cheat on elections you don’t have to destroy the country. They are destroying our country. Our country will not survive this. Our country will not survive.”

There’s a lot of derp to unpack in that brief outburst. First of all, Democrats must not be all that incompetent if they managed to produce more than seven million allegedly fake votes in order to decisively defeat the “stable genius” of Trump. So even from his deranged perspective, he’s essentially admitting that he is even less competent than his foes by allowing them to get away with it.

Secondly, Trump’s relentless charges of cheating have still never been validated by even a shred of evidence. Which is true with regard to the “43,000 votes” he says “were found last night.” They weren’t. Thirdly, What on Earth is he talking about when he says that “When you cheat on elections you don’t have to destroy the country.” Is he bragging that his methods of cheating can be done without destroying the country?

Lastly, Trump delivers his dystopian prediction that America is in its final days. He might as well be shuffling down 5th Avenue with a sandwich board that reads “REPENT! The End Is Near!” He may be right, but not for the reasons bouncing around in his diseased cranium. It is his inflammatory “Big Lie” rhetoric that is undermining faith in democracy and inciting his cult followers to violence. However, Trump wasn’t through spreading his morbid manure. Without even a pause to inhale, he launched into a completely different subject:

“And look at where they’re coming from. They’re coming from Yemen. They’re coming from the Middle East. They’re coming from all countries that are very sick countries. Very sick, very mean, nasty. They’re coming from all countries that have problems.”

Huh? What does that have to do with democrats or elections? Does Trump think that no one will notice that he just veered off into an entirely unrelated rant? And one that is not only utterly false, but blatantly bigoted? He’s just echoing the Nazi-inspired, racist “great replacement theory” rhetoric that Tucker Carlson and others on Fox News embraced. The America that both Trump and Carlson are afraid of losing is the one that is dominated by White nationalists like themselves.

Elsewhere in the same interview, Trump engaged in some old fashioned revisionist history about how no one had any idea that a pandemic could spread and, with the help of a negligent and incompetent leader, could take the lives of nearly 700,000 Americans:

“Nobody ever really thought a pandemic would happen. It sounds like sort of an ancient thing, you know? Or go back to 1917, which was so bad. But nobody thought it was going to happen.”

Never mind that in much more recent times times than the 1918 Spanish flu, we have suffered through AIDS, Ebola, SARS, swine flu and zika. Is Trump really so stupid that he has no inkling of knowledge about these viral episodes? Or is he just that brazen a liar? By the way, many people were both aware of and concerned about the potential for even more disastrous pandemics, including this guy in October of 2019:

President Biden once again proves who is more mentally adept. Meanwhile, Trump continues to visit only with sycophantic pundits who who shamelessly kiss his – let’s say ring. So he gets away with making the most preposterous statements without any correction by his worshipful hosts. It’s a cowardly pattern of behavior by a frightened and ill-equipped mental midget who only knows how to communicate anger and self-exaltation.
