Former Trump Adviser: The Donald Is Only ‘Running’ In 2024 To Make Money ‘Off These Rubes’

When he speaks to the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) convention later this afternoon, it’s expected that failed, one-term former President Donald Trump will again whine that the 2020 election was stolen from him, attack President Joe Biden, and possibly announce that he plans to run for the White House once again in 2024.

But does Trump really believe he has a shot at winning the next election, or does he have another motive for running a second time?

According to Anthony Scaramucci, who served briefly in the Trump administration as communications director, Trump’s motive is simple: Grifting.

Scaramucci appeared on MSNBC Saturday, and he made it clear that the Donald is only thinking about making money, perhaps to play his legal bills:

“I think he’s going to run in 2024, this is the most money he’s ever made — just imagine making $300 million off of these rubes that he’s coning after the election with his big lie. So he’ll run again in 2024.

“Will he go to the finish line? Maybe not. There are 10 or 12 Republicans that see themselves as a future president. They’re going to try to find ways to undermine him, obviously, Governor Nikki Haley already started that process, so I don’t know if he gets to the finish line, but why would he not run and raise money off the rubes that he’s raising money from?”

However, Scaramucci then added that Trump’s plans to seek a second term in office may not go as smoothly as he wants:

“I think it could get interrupted by the potential criminal investigations that are going on and the potential indictments, so if he runs and there are no indictments and I think he has a clear path to that nomination, and that’s why Sen. McConnell said ‘Of course I’m going to support him’ — which is even more levels of hypocrisy, but yes, he runs, he wins the nomination. There is risk here, though, because of his potential tax fraud case and other cases — even the D.C. case related to the insurrection is a potential speed bump to him getting that nomination.”

Donald Trump may actually believe he’s going to run in 2024, but that election is over three years away, and whether it’s the courts or the creditors, Trump won’t be on the GOP ticket. He’s a loser, and losers always find a way to screw things up.

Former Prosecutor Says Trump’s Kids May Have To Take The Fall For Their Father’s Crimes

Even though former President Donald Trump has been in the news recently regarding eight years of his tax returns being made available to the office of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr., a former prosecutor said Saturday that the Donald’s three eldest children — Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric — may be the ones who wind up taking the biggest legal hit when it comes to their father’s alleged crimes.

Former assistant Manhattan District Attorney Daniel Alonso was a guest on CNN. He was asked for his thoughts on the case being built by Vance. Alonso began by laying out the full range of crimes the former president may potentially be indicted for:

“He faces peril in multiple jurisdictions, but the Stormy Daniels payment is a discrete set of facts. And if they can get over one weird hurdle in New York on the falsification of business records, that could have legs. Michael Cohen was reimbursed by the Trump Organization and presumably the Trump Organization did not correctly list the information in their records. And there is that recording of Cohen and Trump talking about one of the payments. So I think that that could be a discrete case of falsification of business records, assuming that they can prove the felony count which the statute of limitations hasn’t yet expired.”

And then there’s the numerous alleged financial crimes which could also be lurking in the Trump tax filings, Alonso continued:

“The other stuff, it is certainly very much worth investigating. There are discrepancies between what they are telling the insurance companies and banks and tax authority, very substantial … I think a lot of that remains to be seen. There are — there is a lot of evidence, a lot of people to talk to, and there have been accountants and lawyers presumably who were all involved in this.”

Alonso then explained how it may wind up being the Trump spawn who have to pay the biggest price for their father’s wrongdoing:

“One last thing I want to say, it is not necessarily Donald Trump, right? He may not be the defendant. They may not have enough on these accounting issues to charge him, they may have enough to charge the Trump Organization or other executives, including the kids or others at the organization. Or the CFO. So there are lots and lots of unknowns here, and I wouldn’t assume that the defendant is definitely going to be Donald Trump.”

The possibility of the Trump children being in legal jeopardy raises what may be the biggest questions of all: Are Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric willing to do decades in prison for daddy? Or would they turn state’s evidence to save their own skin?

Former Trump Chief Of Staff Suggests Don Jr. Or Ivanka Will Be Their Father’s Running Mate In 2024

When he speaks at the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) on Sunday, one-term failed former President Donald Trump is expected to claim yet again that the 2020 election was stolen from him, laying the foundation for another run at the White House in 2024.

But something former Trump administration chief of staff Mark Meadows said seems to suggest that if and when the Donald does run again, his running mate will be either Don Jr. or Ivanka.

During an appearance on Fox News, Meadows remarked:

“We will see the start of planning for the next administration and I can tell you, the people that are at the top of that list, all of them have Trump as their last name.”

Granted, Meadows could mean that the 2024 nominee will have the last name of Trump, but does anyone actually believe that any Trump other than the 45th president will be running if he decides to? Certainly not.

If you read a bit between the lines, it certainly seems that Meadows is suggesting another Trump will run with the old man. And the only Trumps who have expressed an interest in politics are Don Jr. and Ivanka.

Also, consider the reports about the Donald naming Ivanka as his running mate in 2020 before he decided on Mike Pence.

Of course, all of this supposes that the former president (and members of his family) won’t be incarcerated on financial fraud charges and therefore have zero chance of winning anything at all. That’s entirely possible, and actually seems more likely than another President Trump, no matter what first name you insert.

The “Trump movement” has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with keeping the Trump cult of personality alive.

Ivanka Trump Accidentally Admits That Her Father Has Ruined Her Life

With the Texas ice storm dominating the headlines, you may have missed another announcement that came down the pike on Thursday: Ivanka Trump has decided that she won’t run against Sen. Marco Rubio in 2022, the Associated Press reports:

“The former president’s eldest daughter and ex-senior White House adviser spoke with Rubio several weeks ago and told him she would not be running for his seat, according to a Rubio campaign spokesperson. The two have also discussed appearing at a joint event.

“The conversation, first reported by The New York Times, comes a day after Donald Trump re-emerged after nearly a moth of self-imposed silence, conducting a series of interviews to commemorate the death of conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh. Trump would not comment on his political future in the interviews, saying it was too soon to talk about whether he will run again in 2024.”

But what Ivanka really revealed is that she knows she has no political future whatsoever.

How so? Well, if the former president’s daughter really wanted to follow in his footsteps, she’d jump right in while a large portion of the GOP is still obsessed with all things Trump.

She didn’t, however, and that speaks volumes about Ivanka’s awareness that her father has destroyed whatever chances she had of holding any elected office, as Bess Levin notes in Vanity Fair:

“As you might have heard, Ivanka’s dad incited a fascist coup in an attempt to overthrow the U.S. government, undertaken by people the former first daughter addressed as ‘American patriots,’ before trying to furiously backtrack. And apparently having uncharacteristically read the room, Ivanka has decided that now is not the right time to take the first step in a series of steps that she believes will lead to her becoming the U.S.’s first woman president.”

Ivanka isn’t the only Trump who plans to sit out 2022. Bloomberg reports Don Jr. will also steer clear of seeking any elected office in the next election cycle:

“Trump’s oldest son, Donald Trump Jr., also doesn’t plan to run for any office in the next election cycle, though he’s aware of suggestions that he pursue a Senate seat from Pennsylvania or Montana or move to Wyoming to challenge Republican Representative Liz Cheney, people familiar with his plans said. Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, voted to impeach the former president and was censured by her state Republican Party amid demands for her resignation.”

The Trump siblings are learning something that Rick Wilson put his finger on a few years back: Everything Donald Trump touches dies. And that now includes the so-called political futures of his family members.


Congress WTF?!

Republican Congresswoman Gets Mocked After Blaming Windmills For Power Outages

Republicans are getting dumber by the second, and some of them are even more moronic than their Supreme Leader, the failed, one-term loser president and future inmate, Donald Trump.

If you doubt that thesis, consider the case of Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) a pinheaded, knuckle-dragging gun worshiper who got elected because she pledged eternal loyalty to Donald Trump, who promptly repaid her loyalty by getting his ass kicked in a matchup with Joe Biden.

Boebert thought she’d weigh in on the fact that millions of Texans are now without power as a result of the massive ice storm. According to Ms. Boebert, the reason for the power outages can be traced back to frozen wind turbines. As you’d expect, that’s complete bullshit, as the power shortage in the Lone Star State has been caused by the weather and an increased demand for energy as temperatures plummet across the state:

Memo to Lauren Boebert: It’s never a good idea to cite Tucker Carlson as your source of news or information since all he does most nights on his show is lie, peddle conspiracy theories, and attempt to attract the lowest IQ viewers possible.

Wind energy has actually been a huge success in Texas, and now accounts for nearly 20 percent of all the power produced in the state.

Reaction to Boebert’s massive moronic meltdown was immediate and on point. Take a look:

It takes a special kind of stupid to believe anything a Republican says. They’re either lying, full of crap, stupid, or a bit of all three.
