Hakeem Jeffries Trolls Trump’s 2024 Campaign And It’s Guaranteed To Enrage The Donald

Even though he has formally announced that he’s seeking the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, Donald Trump’s so-called campaign is struggling to get off the ground, according to recent reports.

Business Insider noted:

Aides to former President Donald Trump are surprised by how few allies are showing up at his 2024 campaign events, New York Times star reporter Maggie Haberman said. 

Speaking on CNN Tuesday, Haberman discussed how Trump’s 2024 campaign has gotten off to a slow start, and his plans to gear it up at a campaign event in South Carolina on Saturday.

“I think they are also finding, his team, that people are not swelling around him in the Republican Party in these states the way they had believed,” she said.

“Now he still has supporters and still has his operation, it’s pretty small. I think they thought they would be able to get all of these people to just show up for him.”

How humiliating it must be for Trump to have to beg for support after being able to snap his fingers and have GOP political figures show up.

Those reports must have been on the mind of House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) when he was asked Thursday about Facebook’s decision to reinstate the failed former president to the platform in time for the 2024 campaign.

“I think the issue in terms of the concerns, the danger, I think many of us will have more to say about that,” Jeffries remarked.

But it was what Jeffries said next that’s likely to upset Trump the most:

“To the extent that he moves forward with his so-called presidential campaign. It happens to be a very low-energy campaign, by the way.”

The minority leader added:

“(Some candidates) seem to believe that perhaps dividing America or leaning into extreme narratives that don’t have anything to do with historical reality perhaps might advance their own personal aspirations.”

Expect an angry response from Trump before the end of the day.

Matt Gaetz Attempts To Troll Adam Schiff And Only Succeeds In Owning Himself

Even though he isn’t the least bit skilled at online trolling, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) decided he’d try to do so at the expense of Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), who wasn’t reappointed to the House Intelligence Committee by Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy simply because Schiff speaks his mind and was the lead House manager for the first impeachment of disgraced, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump.

House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) let McCarthy know what he thought of his refusal to appoint Schiff and Eric Swalwell (D-CA) to the Intelligence Committee in a letter, noting:

“It is my understanding that you intend to break with the longstanding House tradition of deference to the minority party Intelligence Committee recommendations and deny seats to Ranking Member Schiff and Representative Swalwell. The denial of seats to duly elected Members of the House Democratic Caucus runs counter to the serious and sober mission of the Intelligence Committee.”

McCarthy’s recalcitrance is bad politics, bad optics, and bad for the national security of the United States.

Gaetz, however, who remains under investigation for allegedly taking an underage girl across state lines, having sex with her, and then paying her to remain silent, couldn’t resist adding his voice to the matter, posting this in response to a tweet asking what Schiff’s pronouns are.

If Gaetz had bothered to do a simple Google search, he would have learned that “removed” isn’t a pronoun. According to Dictionary.com, it’s a verb. In some instances, it can be a noun or an adjective, but it’s not a pronoun and never will be. But hey, why let basic knowledge of the English language stand in the way of a social media burn?

But that’s not all Rapey McForehead (a.k.a. Gaetz) neglected to take under consideration before he completely owned himself for the entire internet to see. And it didn’t take long before others have Gaetz a dose of his own medicine.

New York AG On The Verge Of Dismantling Trump Org. With ‘Corporate Death Penalty’

On Tuesday, attorneys for disgraced former president Donald Trump withdrew a lawsuit against New York Attorney General Letitia James challenging her investigation of the Trump Organization.

But despite that move, it’s now clear that James is on the verge of applying New York’s “corporate death penalty” against the failed ex-president’s company, a move that would forbid Trump Org. from ever operating the Empire State again, according to The Daily Beast

It’s called Executive Law 63 (12) and it gives states attorney generals the right to impose stiff penalties on companies to fight fraud.

“The language is broad. It talks about persistent fraud and illegality,” said Bob Abrams, who served as New York attorney general from 1979 to 1993. “She has the authority to protect the public from scammers.”

Scammers who hatch ideas such as Trump University for the sole purpose of taking advantage of people for financial gain without providing anything of value.

As a result of her investigation of fraud by Trump Org., James is seeking to impose $250 million in fines and revoke the company’s business credentials completely, meaning Trump would never be able to do business in the state again, even though New York is the headquarters for his corporation, which is run by the former president and his three eldest children, Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric.

The judge in the case, Arthur F. Engoron, has already signaled that he would be agreeable to imposing the death penalty on Trump Org., writing in one of his rulings:

“Executive Law § 63 (12) broadly empowers the Attorney General of the State of New York to seek to remedy the deleterious effects, in both the public’s perception and in reality, on truth and fairness in commercial marketplaces and the business community.”

How soon could all of this happen? Likely sometime this year since many of the initial court hearings and rulings have already been handed down, including one which found that Trump Org. did indeed inflate the value of properties in order to get larger bank loans and then devalue them to avoid large tax bills.

The Trump Organization is about to become little more than an afterthought, and that’s bad news for the entire Trump family, which has enriched itself over the decades as a result of their corporate grifts and scams.

Tish James is preparing to drop the hammer on Trump and his company. And when she does, you’ll be able to hear Donald crying all the way across the country.

WATCH Ted Cruz Go Full Hypocrite When Asked About Mike Pence Being Caught With Classified Documents

Seconds after demanding that the FBI search any property belonging to President Joe Biden for classified documents, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) insisted that it was no big deal such materials had just been found at former Vice President Mike Pence’s home in Indiana.

How’s that for doing a flip-flop in the middle of blatant hypocrisy?

During an appearance on the Fox Business show “Kudlow” Tuesday, Cruz went on an extended rant aimed at Biden and his son, Hunter.

“I believe the FBI needs to search the residences of Hunter Biden and any business offices of Hunter Biden to determine if there are classified materials there, because if these classified materials in particular implicate Burisma, Ukraine, communist China, payments going to Hunter Biden or Joe Biden’s brother or the Biden family, then this shifts from a political problem to a very serious problem of criminal liability and major crimes.

“And so, the FBI needs to search the University of Delaware archives and they need to search Hunter Biden’s home and business addresses.”

But when Kudlow asked about the news that documents had been found at Pence’s home, Cruz suddenly began singing a different tune.

“Oh look, the Mike Pence story, it’s still early. You know, Mike Pence, as you noted he is a good friend, he’s a good man. He’s explained where these came from, what his office has put out is that in packing up the vice presidential offices that there were a couple of papers that were classified that were inadvertently put with non-classified materials. That was a mistake, but there’s no reason to think this was anything but inadvertent.

“That is very different from what Joe Biden has done. Joe Biden has given zero explanation how these classified documents got there. And in particular, he has given no explanation as to how he has documents from his time in the Senate.”

It’d be easy to say that Cruz is such a notorious flip-flopper that his latest contortions are to be expected. But it still needs to be pointed out, along with a reminder that Teddy is called the most hated person in the U.S. Senate.

Tuesday Decision By Georgia DA Should Terrify Trump And His Attorneys

A decision announced in court Tuesday by Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis is certain to alarm disgraced former president Donald Trump and his attorneys.

According to CNN, Willis said that a special grand jury impaneled to investigate Trump and some of his allies in their attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 election in the Peach State has recommended indictments for “multiple” defendants and the release those names and the charges against them is “imminent.”

“Decisions are imminent,” Willis told Judge Robert McBurney. We want to make sure that everyone is treated fairly, and we think for future defendants to be treated fairly it’s not appropriate at this time to have this report released.”

Donald Wakeford, Fulton County’s chief senior assistant district attorney, echoed Willis’ remarks:

“We think immediately releasing before the district attorney has even had an opportunity to address publicly whether there will be charges or not – because there has not been a meaningful enough amount of time to assess it – is dangerous. It’s dangerous to the people who may or may not be named in the report for various reasons. It’s also a disservice to the witnesses who came to the grand jury and spoke the truth to the grand jury.”

The judge agreed, promising there would be “no rash decisions.”

“No one’s going to wake up with the court having disclosed the report on the front page of a newspaper.”

Why is this such bad news for Trump and others, including Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) who also allegedly tried to get Georgia election officials to “find” additional votes for the failed ex-president? Simple: If no criminal charges were planned, the report could be made public without any delay.

What happens next? Willis will have to decide if she wants to pursue charges against those identified by the grand jury. And that’s where things could get dicey for Trump, CNN notes.

Willis has previously said she could pursue Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) charges in this case, which would allow prosecutors to bring charges against multiple defendants and make the case that Trump and his allies were part of a criminal enterprise.

Racketeering charges also carry enhanced penalties that could send those charged — if convicted — to decades in a Georgia prison.

Things are about to get very interesting who played a part in trying to overturn the will of the voters, and every eye is now on the state of Georgia.
