Trump Horribly Bungles His ‘Horrible City’ Swipe at Milwaukee with Help from a Fox News Flunky

It is universally agreed that Donald Trump has always run an unconventional campaign for the White House. He never engages in any of the customary meet and greets with prospective voters, or base building efforts to attract new supporters.

Donald Trump, Fox News

Trump prefers instead to hold cult rallies where he keeps his distance from the unclean masses that worship their Dear Leader, or consorts with the upper-crusters from whom he wrangles millions of dollars in bribes…er…donations that are spent mostly on his legal fees and billion dollar judgments. And heaven forbid he ever pass any of those funds on to his GOP confederates, from whom he demands unflinching loyalty that is never reciprocated.

SEE THIS: IT’S A CULT! Lara Trump Tells ‘Anyone Who is Not On Board with Donald Trump’ to Leave the GOP

Consistent with his unconventional style, Trump has added a new tool to his campaign bag of tricks. In a private meeting with congressional Republicans, Trump expressed his visceral distaste for Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the city that will be hosting the Republican National Convention where next month, barring any unforeseen liberation from the grip of Felonious Punk, he will officially be nominated as the GOP’s candidate for president. Trump didn’t mince words, calling Milwaukee a horrible city.”

This shouldn’t surprise anyone who has observed Trump over the past few years. He frequently maligns America as a “failed nation” that is overrun by communists, criminals, and “corrupt radicals and thugs” who are determined to destroy the country and, more importantly from his perverse perspective, him. So why should Milwaukee get a reprieve?

As usual, Trump’s true feelings were recognized as repulsive and damaging by his pals in the press and political realm. They immediately set about to deny that any such insult was uttered. But true to form, Trump was too dense to realize himself that he might have been capable of making a mistake. So when Aishah Hasnie, a Fox News “reporter,” attempted to provide him an escape path, Trump flubbed it and ended up admitting that he made the grotesque comments.

Hasnie: Democrats are also hitting you on this comment that you made about Milwaukee, the host city for the RNC. And they seem to believe that you said that it was a horrible city. Can you just nip this in the bud and clarify what you meant?
Trump: It was very clear what I meant. I said, we’re very concerned with crime.

Note the Fox News Trump-fluffer’s characterization of the problem. She portrayed it as merely something that Democrats “believe that [Trump] said.” Never mind that it was exclusively Republicans who attended the meeting where Trump made the remarks. So it had to have been a Republican who leaked it to the press. Note also that the Foxie did not simply seek a comment from Trump, but she framed it as an opportunity for him to “nip this in the bud.” The Fox shill was virtually holding Trump’s hand to lead him to absolution. But Trump shook it loose and gave his own answer that served as a confession.

“I love Milwaukee, I have great friends in Milwaukee, but it’s as you know, the crime numbers are terrible. We have to be very careful. But I was referring to also the election, the ballots, the way it went down, it was very bad in Milwaukee. Very, very bad. And the people understand that and they agree with me. Everybody agrees. No, that was a fake story that came out.”

Did you catch the rosy chyron in that video clip editorializing that “TRUMP LOVES MILWAUKEE.” Yeah, right! More to the point, Trump does not deny that he made the disparaging remarks about Milwaukee. He just tries to pretend that he was talking about something else. But even in that attempt, he struggles with his own feeble excuse. He rambles first about the comment having something to do with crime. But then he quickly swerves to claim instead that it was related to imaginary allegations of election fraud. And as always, in Trump’s decaying cranium, “everybody agrees” with him about everything all the time.

For the record, crime in Milwaukee has been on a steep decline during President Biden’s term in office, and while both the city and the state are run by Democrats. And those facts were actually reported by the Fox News affiliate in Milwaukee.

“With the first quarter review, Milwaukee police say homicides have decreased 39% – down to 23 from 38 this time in 2023. Property crime is down 11%. Auto thefts are down 10% – down to 1,295 from 1,431 this time in 2023.”

Undeterred by reality, Fox News continues to gaslight their glassy-eyed audience. For instance, Sean Hannity asked GOP House Speaker, MAGA Mike Johnson, (a completely impartial source) about the Milwaukee maligning…

Hannity: Can we just settle one thing once and for all here? President Trump, it’s been attributed to him that he took a shot at Milwaukee. did he do that?
Johnson: No. I didn’t hear it and I was sitting right next to him.

Well then. That settles it. Johnson is either acutely hard of hearing, or is outright lying. Because he is disagreeing with Trump as to whether or not he said it. Perhaps Johnson is accusing Trump of lying. Hannity never bothered to mention what Trump said to his Fox News colleague above. Considering how long Fox News has been in the deception business, it’s astonishing how bad they are it.

GO FOR IT! The RNC is Considering Barring NBC From Covering the Republican National Convention

The recent kerfuffle over NBC’s hiring – and firing – of former Republican National Committee (RNC) chair, Ronna McDaniel, is continuing to make waves in the partisan political pool. While McDaniel’s dumping had more to do with her being an unprincipled purveyor of lies and a Trump fake elector co-conspirator, than a voice for conservatives, the right-wing media and MAGA minions were outraged and inconsolable.

Donald Trump, GOP

Commentators of Fox News chastised NBC as an ideologically slanted network that shut out any views contrary to what Fox regarded as their political biases. Which, coming from the virulently one-sided right-wingers on Fox, was laughably absurd. However, McDaniel’s first scheduled appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” began a stream of blowback from both liberals and conservatives at NBC and MSNBC that was furious and virtually unanimous.

SEE THIS: Ronna McDaniel’s Debut on NBC’s Meet the Press is an Unmitigated Disaster For Both NBC and Her

In the wake of that storm, Republicans remain angry and determined to get revenge. Although their methods of achieving that goal are typically ridiculous and not especially well thought out. Politico is reporting that…

“The Republican National Committee is weighing whether to restrict NBC’s access to this summer’s convention, following the network’s decision to drop former RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel as a contributor. Such a move would mark a dramatic escalation in the growing rift between Donald Trump-allies and the TV network.” […]

“‘We are taking a hard look at what this means for NBC’s participation at the convention,’ said Danielle Alvarez, a spokesperson for the RNC and the Trump campaign. ‘Our priority is making sure this is a world class event that allows President Trump to feature his message and vision in a fair way.'”

This is great news. If the RNC, now co-chaired by Trump’s daughter-in-lawlessness, Lara Trump, bars NBC from covering their Trump-a-Thon it would mean that Trump and his MAGA cult disciples would get far less exposure on national television. In fact, the RNC should ban ABC, CBS, and CNN as well. After all, aren’t they all “fake” news?

Fox News could have an exclusive on the Republican National Convention. What better way for them to ensure that the coverage is “fair” in their eyes? Even better, they could offer it as a four day “Orange Man Festival” on their Fox Nation streaming service for $49.95, complete with crackpots in crazy costumes, elaborate booths selling Trump-endorsed bibles and tacky gold sneakers, and a giant golden idol to set ablaze during Trump’s acceptance speech. Just think of how much more money they could earn to pay off Trump’s attorneys.

No should be surprised, however, to learn that the RNC’s idea to bar NBC is just another demonstration of their ignorance and incompetence. That’s because it is likely not within their authority to do so. Politico also reported that…

“…congressional press gallery officials, not the RNC, run the credentialing process for access to the convention hall.”

The only recourse that the RNC might have would be to restrict access to the transportation and hotel rooms it is reserving. It’s fair to assume that NBC could easily overcome those obstacles.

In the end, this just reaffirms that the RNC is a joke that has no idea what they are doing. They don’t even comprehend that they are seeking to punish NBC for firing McDaniel, which is exactly what the RNC itself had done a couple of weeks prior. And that could be why they are badly trailing the Biden campaign’s efforts in fundraising and organizing. Expect more of the same to follow.

TOTALLY AGREE… With the RNC Chair Who Says ‘We Are Better Off Today’ than Four Years Ago

Forty four years ago Ronald Reagan asked a question that has become a staple of every presidential election that has followed. During a debate with President Jimmy Carter, Reagan asked “Are you better off than you were 4 years ago?” It was really a rather simplistic question that didn’t get to the heart of any specific issue. But it was an effective rhetorical worm that borrowed into the minds of voters.

Joe Biden, GOP, Elephant

Ever since, American voters have been asked to make the same comparison. And the 2024 presidential election is no exception. However, it does make a huge difference who is asking this question now. President Biden has presided over a booming economy, unprecedented job creation, and a legislative agenda that includes progress on climate and the environment, healthcare, gun reforms, tax equity, infrastructure, manufacturing, and more. It’s a record that Republicans are having a hard time criticizing…

SEE THIS: President Biden Trolls Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Hysterically Lame Swipe at Democratic Successes

Meanwhile, Donald Trump has been spending his days in court defending himself against dozens of civil and criminal charges, including election interference, inciting an insurrection and rape. And that will continue to dominate his time through November and beyond.

Which makes it difficult for the GOP to ask the “better off” question now. But that hasn’t stopped them from doing so. The latest Republican to venture down this path is the newly installed co-chair (along with Trump’s daughter-in-lawlessness, Lara Trump) of the Republican National Committee (RNC), Michael Whatley. He appeared on Fox News and asked that question. But the answer he provided was a bit of surprise…

“At the end of the day, this comes down to a very simple contrast between President Trump and President Biden. Were you better off four years ago than you are today? The answer for this entire country is no. I mean yes. We are better off today.”

That’s right. Whatley’s first stab at the answer was to say that, no, we were not better off four years ago during the Trump administration. Then when he tried to clean up his gaffe, he made it worse by saying that, yes, we are better off today. It’s hard to argue with him. But it’s par for the course for the new RNC leadership that is doing more to help Democrats than Republicans.

SEE ALSO: IT’S A CULT! Lara Trump Tells ‘Anyone Who is Not On Board with Donald Trump’ to Leave the GOP

What’s more, in the past few days this question has been asked by everyone in the Trump cult, from Lara Trump to Sean Hannity, who insisted that Democrats “cannot run on ‘are you better off than you were four years ago.'”

Really? For the record, four years ago thousands of Americans were dying every day from a virus that Trump mismanaged through neglect and/or ignorance; the stock market had crashed; jobs were eliminated as companies closed; and you couldn’t buy toilet paper. He also added eight trillion dollars to the deficit, embraced foreign dictators, alienated allies, and appointed ultra-rightist judges that who reversed Roe v Wade and generally ruled in favor of wealthy elitists and corporations. All the while, Trump cast himself in the starring role of a daily reality TV show where he upstaged the experts and lied that “a lot of good things are gonna happen.”

Actually, Trump was right, just a little early. Because, as for whether we are better off than four years ago, well…a lot of good things did happen – after President Biden took over. For instance…

UM, OK! Trump Challenges Biden to Debate ‘Anytime, Anywhere, Anyplace,’ Even If Run By the DNC

In the wake of the Super Tuesday primaries, Trump was pleased to learn that his only remaining Republican opponent for the GOP presidential nomination, Nikki Haley, decided to call it quits and suspended her campaign. Naturally, Trump’s response to that was to lash out Haley and condemn her for daring to challenge his divine sovereignty.

Donald Trump, Joe Biden

To anyone giving more than a superficial glance at the results of Super Tuesday’s races, they would have noticed the cratering weakness in Trump’s campaign. Particularly when compared to President Biden, who managed to win his primaries without resorting to infantile name-calling, flagrant lies, and desperate smears.

SEE THIS: GOOD NEWS: Super Tuesday Shows Biden and Democrats Far More Popular and United than Trump and MAGA

Now that Trump is no longer distracted by that infernal, incompetent woman (who he had appointed as Ambassador to the United Nations), he is free to reset his focus on his arch enemy, Sleepy and/or Crooked, Joe Biden. It’s puzzling how Trump regards Biden as both a senile communist, and a criminal mastermind. In either case, Trump is now challenging whichever Biden resides in his warped mind to a debates ahead of the general election. He wrote on his failing social media scam, Truth Social, that…

“It is important, for the Good of our Country, that Joe Biden and I Debate Issues that are so vital to America, and the American People. Therefore, I am calling for Debates, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE, ANYPLACE! The Debates can be run by the Corrupt DNC, or their Subsidiary, the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD). I look forward to receiving a response. Thank you for your attention to this matter!”

The first notable part of Trump’s comment is his consent to meet Biden both “anyplace,” and also “anywhere.” Presumably he would also approve of meeting “wherever,” and “at some location” or “destination.” What’s surprising is that Trump will only agree to meet at “anytime,” but not “whenever.”

Setting aside Trump’s disturbingly repetitious mental malfunctioning, it is generous of him to extend this debate invitation to be conducted by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) or the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD). Biden should immediately take him up on that offer and have the DNC produce the debate. Then sit back and watch Trump spin furiously to renege on the invitation and insist that he never made it. Or he could use his old standby excuse for his frequent flubs: He was joking. He’s such a card.

Trump’s concession to consider participating in a debate run by the CPD is a blatant contradiction of the Republican National Committee’s (RNC) already announced boycott of the organization that has been putting on these debates for thirty years. The RNC made that declaration two years ago:

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

The RNC issued their rejection of the Commission because it wouldn’t submit to their demands, including determining the composition of its members, dictating the dates of the debates, and intervening in the selection of debate moderators. In other words, they wanted to exert the kind of partisan control that Trump demands before participating in any public event. Trump has demonstrated that he cannot face any encounter that isn’t rigged to his advantage. It’s why he won’t submit to any interviews that aren’t conducted by his pals at Fox News or other similarly servile sycophants.

Never mind that Trump has spent years maligning President Biden as mentally unfit, it is the GOP that appears to be concerned about their own candidate’s ability to face off in an open forum. But if Trump were to comply with his new challenge, he would have to revoke the RNC’s boycott. Which he could surely arrange since he recently announced that he’s putting his daughter-in-lawlessness, Lara Trump, at the helm of the RNC. And she is already getting to work banishing anyone who isn’t unflinchingly loyal to Trump from the party.

So let’s set up these debates with the DNC. And let’s get Rachel Maddow (MSNBC), Jessica Tarlov (Fox News), and Jon Stewart (Comedy Central) to moderate them. Then watch Trump’s head explode. In the meantime, Trump is prepping for his encounter with Biden by outlining what he believes are the “Issues that are so vital to America, and the American People.” And if you weren’t already nauseated enough, don’t watch this video…

IT’S A CULT! Lara Trump Tells ‘Anyone Who is Not On Board with Donald Trump’ to Leave the GOP

Just in case anyone was wondering who is in control of the Republican Party, the former reality TV game show host, and aspiring authoritarian dictator, Donald Trump, is making it abundantly clear that he is the divinely anointed master and all others must bend down and kiss his – let’s say ring.

Donald Trump, QAnon, Dictator

As evidence of Trump’s commandeering of the GOP (Groveling Obedient Peons), he has proposed to put his daughter-in-lawlessness, Lara Trump, at the helm of the Republican National Committee (RNC). From there she can allocate the funds it receives in donations from corporations, wealthy benefactors, and brainwashed simpletons, to paying for her Sugardaddy-in-law’s lawyers and traveling salvation shows. In fact, that’s precisely what she promised to do…

SEE THIS: Grifter Girl Lara Trump Says When She is RNC Chair ‘Every Single Penny Will Go to Donald Trump’

Never mind that the RNC is supposed to be a neutral enterprise that advances the prospects of all GOP candidates. In the Era of Trump there is only one mission. and that is to venerate Dear Leader Trump above everything and everyone else. Affirming that objective, Sister Lara appeared on the Trump-fluffing “news” website, “Real America’s Voice,” to declare that…

“I can assure you that there will be no funny business. Anyone who is not on board with seeing Donald Trump as the 47th president, and America-loving patriots all the way down the ticket being supported by the RNC, is welcome to leave. Because we are not playing games, and we have no time to waste. So we have to insure that every single penny of every dollar donated goes to the causes people care about.”

And make no mistake. In Trumpism the “causes that people care about” are all focused on exalting Trump. In other words, believe or be banished. No independent thought or fealty to heretics is permitted in the New Republican Ministry. That sort of disloyalty will be severely punished, and all apostates will be cast out. Rev. Trump said himself that any supporter of Nikki Haley will be permanently banned from the realm of MAGA.

Sister Lara went on to pitch herself for the leadership of the RNC, citing as her qualifications that “There is no one more loyal to Donald Trump.” It is in that spirit of compulsory devotion that Rev. Trump declared that the Republican Party has never been more united. He said that right after the first few GOP primaries where he lost 40% of his own party’s vote. And republicans in Congress are such a disjointed mess that they’ve gone through two Speakers and secured a modern record low for legislative productivity.

But never fear, MAGA-naughts. The 2024 election is the bag for Trump. It is such an assured inevitability that Trump told his cult followers that he doesn’t even need their votes. So Trump supporters can just skip the whole election and go to the monster truck show instead. That’s a message that everyone – including Democrats – can get behind. See? Trump is uniting the country.

Grifter Girl Lara Trump Says When She is RNC Chair ‘Every Single Penny Will Go to Donald Trump’

The corruption and self-dealing of the Trump family has been well documented over many years (decades). And their brazen disrespect for the law has been proven in numerous court judgments, including the ones that resulted in multimillion dollar penalties and shuttered Donald Trump’s fake university and his phony charity.

Trump Baby on Cash Pile

However, in the past seven years Trump has turned his grifting operation to politics, raising millions of dollars from billionaires seeking favors from government, extorting funds from foreign countries, and fleecing his deluded MAGA disciples.

SEE THIS: GRIFTER EXPOSED: Trump Campaign Scam Defrauds Hundreds of His Supporters

Expanding that criminal outreach into political scams, Trump is now proposing that his daughter-in-law, Lara Trump (Eric’s girl), be made co-chair of the Republican National Committee (RNC). She would serve along side devoted Trump flunky and election denier, Michael Whatley, and Trump’s campaign manager Chris LaCivita. The elevation of that trio of toadies to run the RNC is further evidence that the party has devolved into a true cult that is blindly obedient to the will of its Dear Leader.

Lara Trump has zero experience in managing an electoral organization. So putting her in charge of the RNC in this profoundly significant election year is something that should be extraordinarily helpful – to Democrats. And she has already demonstrated how much help her leadership will be in a recent interview on Newsmax, the network that employed her as a guest host and contributor after her termination from Fox News. She told her colleague Rob Schmitt that…

“If I am elected to this position I can assure you there will not be any more $70,000 – or whatever exorbitant amount of money it was – spent on flowers. Every single penny will go to the number one, and the only job of the RNC. That is electing Donald J. Trump as president of the United States.”

The rest of the Republican candidates for office must be happy to hear that. The RNC is supposed to be a neutral enterprise that advances the prospects of all GOP candidates. But in the Era of Trump “the only job of the RNC [is] is electing Donald J. Trump.” For some reason Lara’s allegedly billionaire Sugardaddy-in-Law doesn’t think that he has enough money, or access to donors, to finance his own campaign. And that may be true because Trump has had to spend millions of his donors dollars on his legal fees and incompetent lawyers.

SEE ALSO: Trump Whines that His Lawyers are Overpaid, But Considering What They Go Through, They’re Cheap

So now Trump has to appropriate all of the donations made to the RNC that were intended to benefit the party nationally. And even that may not be enough, considering that the Party’s current leadership under chair Ronna McDaniel has been so inept that the party has little to show for it’s efforts. They have raised record low amounts in the past year and have far less available cash on hand than their Democratic opponents.

But not to worry. With Trump’s daughter-in-law at the helm of the RNC, there will be no more wasteful expenditures on things like flowers. Now it will just be lawyers, Trump rallies, golfing, and portraits of Trump. Plus they will be able to introduce the tactics that Trump has used for decades to fill his pockets.

The GOP’s Pathetic ‘Research’ Unit Posts Endless, Bogus Clips of Biden Supposedly ‘Confused’

The Republican Party has been working tirelessly on their 2024 campaign for president of the United States. But if you think that means drafting policies or communicating with constituents, or developing strategies, you don’t know today’s Trump-obsessed, MAGA-infected, Republican Party.

Click here to Tweet this article

Joe Biden, GOP, Elephant

The modern day GOP is a schizoid disaster area. They have an entirely unique perspective of how to advance their political prospects. The issues that they pretend to care about – from abortion to immigration to foreign conflicts to the economy, etc. – are merely after thoughts that take a back seat to Donald Trump’s agenda of “retribution,” imaginary “witch hunts,” and compulsive blathering about past elections being “rigged and stolen.”

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

The official Twitter account for the Republican National Committee’s research unit (RNCResearch) is awash in the obtuse mangling of reality that has become the core of the GOP’s campaign blueprint for 2024. And a quick perusal of the page tells the whole story.

Among their posts just the past couple of days are two dozen that aim to malign President Biden as mentally deficient and confused. However, the problem with their efforts is that the video clips they post to prove their points invariably show Biden as knowledgeable and engaging. And some of the posts are just head-scratchers that show only how desperate the GOP is to bash Biden. For example…

After ludicrous comments like that, Republicans still want to be taken seriously? And that was just for starters. Here a few more “zingers” that the GOP seems to think will destroy any hopes that Biden has for victory in November…

“Biden’s staff isn’t letting him read his typical rambling speech today, so he’s shuffling in and out of a few local businesses instead.”

This was accompanied by a video that shows Biden making a routine stop on the campaign trail.

“A confused Biden caresses the flag before shuffling into the next business — and as hecklers call him a ‘loser.'”

This was accompanied by a video showing Biden walking into a building. He didn’t look the least bit “confused,” and there appeared to by only one heckler in the crowd, which is common for any candidate.

“Biden has one mode: confused.”

This was accompanied by a video showing Biden greeting customers in a cafe and, again, not appearing to be “confused” at all.

“Biden brings out his creepy whisper in Pennsylvania: ‘When you wanna call and check the balance on your account, they charge $30!.”

This was accompanied by a video showing Biden speaking about his progress in eliminating the “junk fees” that companies impose on consumers.

BIDEN: “You’ve got the best economy of any economy in the world right now. And that literally is true, but people turn on the television and what do you hear? Everything’s negative! Even the good stuff ends up negative! And a lot of it is negative!”

It’s hard to determine what the RNC is even upset about with this one. But it was accompanied by a video showing Biden affirming the successes of his administration, while acknowledging that there are still “negatives,” like hurricanes and war in the Middle East. He concluding by expressing his belief in “the heart and the guts of the American people.”

Leaving out the RNC’s biased and awkward captions, these video are more helpful to the Biden campaign than harmful. They show him interacting pleasantly with ordinary Americans and highlighting the work he is doing on their behalf. And by contrast, they reveal how little Republicans are doing and, therefore, have nothing to run on but silly videos like these.

In light of that, the Democratic National Committee might want to consider sending them a “thank you” note. They are already brilliantly trolling Trump on his failing social media scam, Truth Social

Upcoming Republican Primary Debates May Have Only Two Candidates – But Still No Cowardly Trump

The race for the Republican Party’s nomination for President in 2024 has been a laughably lame affair that appears to be modeled after a third rate reality TV show. It’s “Apprentice – White House” without the boorish board room finale where the playacting potentate pretends to fire one of the contemptible contestants.

Click here to Tweet this article

Donald Trump, Republican, GOP

From the start of election season the Republican National Committee (RNC) assumed dictatorial control of the production of these debates with a series of decrees that sought to establish their supreme authority over the process and the candidates. For instance, they prohibited all candidates from participating in any debate not sanctioned by the RNC. They also demanded that all candidates sign a pledge to support whoever the eventual GOP nominee was. As if Trump would keep such a promise.

SEE THIS: RNC Chair Thinks Trump Would Honor a Pledge to Support the GOP Nominee if it Isn’t Him

Apparently the RNC is softening their stance. They are now saying that they will waive their demands to boycott non-RNC sponsored debates. Perhaps that’s because the debates they have produced so far have been fiascos that featured infantile tantrums while avoiding any matter of interest to voters. They have also resulted in sequentially lower ratings for each broadcast. Consequently, CNN has just announced that they will sponsor two debates prior to the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary.

CNN’s announcement said that “The events will provide Republican voters an opportunity to hear the governing philosophies of the leading candidates.” But that seems like a lofty goal that they are unlikely to achieve. After all, the previous debates were hardly forums for learning about the candidates “governing philosophies.” And that isn’t likely to improve considering the conditions they have set for participation…

“To qualify for participation in the Iowa debate, candidates must receive at least 10% in three separate national and/or [Iowa/New Hampshire] state polls.”

By that criteria, the only candidates, other than Donald Trump, who currently qualify for the Iowa debate are Ron DeSantis and Nikki Haley. And the only non-Trump candidates who currently qualify for the New Hampshire debate are Nikki Haley and Chris Christie. There is still time for others to meet the criteria prior to the debates, but there are no guarantees that they will succeed.

Should the debates wind up being the head-to-head matchups noted above, they might actually be more interesting. And the absence of the obnoxious blowhard,” Vivek Ramaswamy, would be a welcome relief.

For his part, Trump has declined to participate in any of the four debates already held. And given his increasingly severe psychological slippage, that’s probably a wise decision on the part of his handlers. These days Trump spends most of his time posting either hostile attacks on his perceived enemies, or cultish adoration of himself on his failing Truth Social scam. And his conspicuous cowardice, along with his mental maladies, keep him from sharing the debate stage with his primary challengers, which would only embarrass him and his party further.

So even as the roster of Republicans is reduced with each week that goes by, Trump can be expected to cower in his Mar-a-Lago bunker launching spitballs at his foes, who will deftly avoid any criticism of Dear Leader. And the RNC will continue to prop him up as their inevitable nominee, despite his unmistakable cognitive decline and authoritarian aspirations. This is the state of the Trump Era Republican Party.

LOLOL: Mike Lindell is Ready to Lead the Republican National Committee if Asked By Trump

The 2024 presidential election will be profoundly consequential for the nation. It will be a choice between Joe Biden, a senior statesman who has proven that he works for the people and respects the Constitution, and Donald Trump, a 78 year old megalomaniac who is facing 91 felony charges, assaulted women, incited a violent insurrection, stole and disseminated classified documents, and who undermined democracy and aspires to reign as a tyrant.

Donald Trump, Mike Lindell, MyPillow

That ought to be an easy choice. But given the media’s fixation on ratings-driven, horserace politics, and their attachment to covering trivialities such as Biden’s age, rather than Trump’s openly fascist aspirations, the decision appears to be closer than any sense of rationality – or sanity – can explain.

SEE THIS: Trump’s Uber-MAGA 2024 Campaign Message Reeks of the 3rd Reich Rhetoric of the ‘Final Battle’

With Election Day still about a year away, Trump has already succeeded in turning the campaign season into a nightmarish version of a circus sideshow. When he isn’t sitting and scowling in a courtroom, he’s bellowing bombastically at one of his cult rallies. And with every unhinged outburst, Trump affirms his unfitness for office.

However, the freak show produced by Trump and his obedient flunkies in the Republican Party has only just begun. And one of the signs that the worst is yet to come is Trump’s recent souring on Ronna McDaniel, the chair of the Republican National Committee (RNC). Like everything else in Trump’s mind, it is “rigged” against him. He is upset that the party is continuing to hold primary debates – all of which he has chickened out of – when he believes that they should just crown him the “King of the GOP,” despite the fact that not a single vote has yet been cast.

In this swirling political chaos, former Trump advisor Steve Bannon chatted with the MyPillow huckster, Mike Lindell, and posed what he thought was a serious question…

Bannon: Would you volunteer to take over the RNC if the president so asked you?
Lindell: A hundred percent I would. Then I would have all the tools I need to secure these elections immediately. We’ve already got everything in place. We just need resources and their blessing behind us. Absolutely.”

REALLY? Lindell has been insisting for years that he has irrefutable proof that the 2020 election was rife with fraud. He has promised to reveal his proof several times, but for some reason has never done so. And this election-denying, conspiracy crackpot thinks that he would be a reasonable chairperson of the Republican Party? That is a patently absurd notion.

Although, in comparison to the current state of the GOP, it’s not as absurd as it might seem. The RNC is already a full-on farce. Last year they announced that they had withdrawn from the bipartisan Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD), which has organized the general election debates since 1987. They accused it of being biased and prohibited any GOP candidates from participating in CPD debates.

There are good reasons for Trump to decline these debates. He will not participate in any event that he doesn’t control or isn’t run by a certified Trump-fluffer. He knows that he would just humiliate himself were he to do so. His ravings are becoming more and more bizarre and unintelligible.

In just the past few weeks Trump has suggested that top American generals should be executed. He proposed mass deportations of migrants and refugees. He promises to build concentration camps for his political opponents. He accuses the media of treason. He even called for the termination of the Constitution. And then there are these cringeworthy clues of cognitive collapse…

  • Trump thinks that he ran against Obama in 2020.
  • Trump said that North Korea has 1.4 billion people. That’s China.
  • Trump praised Viktor Orbán as the leader of Turkey. He’s the leader of Hungary.
  • Trump wrongly said that Hungary shares a border with Russia.
  • Trump warned that Biden would lead the country into World War II.
  • Trump boasted that he was the first person to notice that U.S. spells “us.”
  • Trump repeatedly stated that purchasing bread requires a photo ID

With evidence of psychological disfunction like that, no rational person would vote for Trump. Although he did get the approval of his doctor, an osteopath who isn’t qualified to perform physical examinations. Trump released a suspiciously vague note from his “doctor” that declares that he is in “excellent” health. Most suspicious are the claims that he has “reduced his weight,” has an “improved diet,” and engages in “daily physical activity.” Yeah, right. Recall that Trump’s last doctor’s note was written by Trump himself.

Considering all of the above, how could it hurt to have Lindell chair the RNC? Can we really say that McDaniel is any better? At least it would be entertaining, if you’re into horror stories.

The Republican Party’s Lies About Biden Are So Blatant that Even Fox News Had to Rebut Them

These are uncommonly hectic times for America and world. With political crises unfolding at home, and terrorist attacks on our allies abroad, the nation and its leaders are being stretched thin as they attempt to deal with all of it.

Donald Trump, Republican, GOP

It doesn’t help matters that the United States Congress is crippled by the ineptitude and ego of its Republican “leaders” in the House of Representatives. They still can’t manage to select their own Speaker after having ousted the one that took them fifteen votes to elect just nine months ago. In the process the GOP is embarrassing themselves and grasping at preposterous excuses for why their incompetence is all the fault of Democrats.

Lacking any coherent explanation for their humiliating failures, Republicans are struggling to shift attention away from themselves and unto President Biden. The problem with that strategy is that they haven’t got any rational criticisms of Biden either. Consequently, they are stuck with having to invent complaints that bear no resemblance to reality. For instance, the Republican National Committee (RNC) just tweeted that “Americans are still being held hostage by Hamas terrorists — and Joe Biden is at the beach.”

The GOP tweet seeks to portray Biden as neglecting his presidential duties at a time of dire circumstances. Never mind that Biden just returned from a historic diplomatic mission to Israel. And that’s not all. The RNC’s tweet is so dishonest that even Fox News was compelled to rebut it with the facts. Their reporter, Alexandria Hoff, noted that…

“The President has been anything but off the grid while here in Delaware. [In addition to speaking with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu] the President also spoke with his national security team this morning. Pope Francis as well. Plus the leaders of Germany, France, Italy, the UK, and Canada too. So the President’s line then, here in Delaware, was very busy today. Even on that breezy beach walk you were just talking about, the President was on his cell phone during a portion of that.”

So Biden, according to Fox News, was actually hard at work on behalf of our Israeli allies and the American hostages in Gaza. Meanwhile, what were Republicans in Washington doing while “Americans are still being held hostage by Hamas terrorists”? Well, they called a recess and left town. But even before that they weren’t getting anything done for the hostages or anyone else because they are too incompetent to govern. Consequently, the House of Representatives is going on three weeks without a Speaker. Which means that nothing is being accomplished and they might as well be at the beach.

Yet somehow, the RNC is upset about Biden spending a few minutes strolling with his wife after a hard day of complex and sensitive negotiations with world leaders. But they don’t seem the least bit concerned that the GOP in Congress is in a self-imposed vegetative state.

What’s more, their Dear Leader, Donald Trump, is busying himself with similar memes of Biden at the beach, along with pertinent messages about Mitt Romney being a loser (four of those), and fake video of Trump hitting a golf ball that knocks Biden down several times. All while “Americans are still being held hostage by Hamas terrorists.” Trump also posted a flagrant lie saying that…

“The fight in GAZA is ‘coming home’ to the USA. The tens of thousands of strong young men from the Middle East, that have already ‘invaded’ our Country, and are continuing to come, totally unchecked, will become a problem the likes of which we have never seen before. Crooked Joe Biden is a very ignorant (STUPID!) man, who has NEVER been right on a foreign policy issue in his life. CLOSE OUR BORDER, NOW. STOP THE ONSLAUGHT, STOP THE INVASION!”

Trump doesn’t reveal where he got the “news” that “tens of thousands” of scary Middle Easterners “have already ‘invaded’ our Country.” Probably from the same place that he’s presently sitting on, rather than doing anything constructive for the American people. And he has the gall to malign Biden’s intelligence? All of which makes him the perfect leader for Republicans who are likewise engaged in infantile hostilities and exercising nothing but their lying tongues.
