Even though he clearly lost the 2020 election by an enormous margin, failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump is still holding his pathetic rallies where he whines for up to two hours about how the election was stolen from him and begs supporters to donate money.
In other words, Trump is continuing to grift, and the rallies are his attempt to keep the faithful angry and donating. After all, Donald has enormous legal bills to pay.
On Monday, Trump announced that his next rally will be in Cullman, Alabama, on Saturday, August 21:
However, after doing a bit of checking, Ron Filipkowski found out where exactly in Cullman, Alabama, the rally is being held.
Turns out it’s a cow pasture:
Don’t believe it? Just use Google Maps and see what you find when you get there.
Better hope it doesn’t rain that day, or the Trump faithful could be standing in mud up to their cracks. Which, when you think about it, would be both perfect irony and perfect karma.
It didn’t take long before Twitter users joined the mockery:
Imagine the visuals if Trump slips and winds up face first in a big pile of cow patties! He’ll blame the cows and claim they’re part of a “deep state” conspiracy.
It’s been a little while since we last heard from Rudy Giuliani, and based on the things he said in an interview with WNBC, he should have remained silent, because he only succeeded in making himself sound incredibly guilty.
Giuliani is under investigation on multiple fronts and could be facing decades behind bars, but he maintains that he’s “willing to go to jail.”
Rudy also expressed anger about the fact the FBI raiding his home and office, adding:
But why would Giuliani be willing to go to jail if he hasn’t done anything wrong? He responded:
But it was what Giuliani said next that suggests he’s still half crazy, commenting that those who are investigating him are going to get their just reward in the next life:
Suffer the consequences in heaven? So now Rudy can predict how God thinks? Something tells me the former New York City mayor will have plenty to explain to God when he’s judged and cast into the abyss.
Rudy loves to brag about how he used to put mobsters in jail. Now, however, he’s part of the Trump mafia and no better than the criminals he used to prosecute.
According to former White House Chief of Staff, who served under the failed leadership of one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump, the ex-president is now meeting “with his cabinet members” at Bedminster Country Club in New Jersey, even though Trump is no longer president and his “cabinet members” are nothing but private citizens who no longer run any federal agencies or departments.
Meadows made his comments during an appearance the Newsmax show “Cortes & Pelligrino,” telling host Steve Cortes:
Does Mark Meadows not realize that Trump is no longer president? And what’s with the cryptic bullshit about “plans to move forward in a real way”? Is that a warning that another insurrection is being planned? Or is Meadows just repeating what he’s been told to say by Trump so the failed POTUS can try and pretend he’s still relevant politically?
Donald Trump isn’t and never will be president of the United States again. He’s a washed-up retiree who’s trying to scam as much money as he can to try and pay his legal bills, which are mounting and probably run in the millions of dollars already.
Mark Meadows, on the other hand, is just a delusional sycophant who probably fantasizes about one day returning to the White House and trying to destroy the country in new and dangerous ways.
Wanna know who Trump is really meeting with? The dude who works for him and serves him his lunch each and every day and the losers he plays golf with when he’s not taking a nap or having his diaper changed.
While it’s been clear for months that former President Donald Trump was directly involved in fomenting the violence that took place on January 6 at the U.S. Capitol, reporting fromThe New York Times suggests that some Republicans in Congress also played a role in the efforts to subvert the 2020 election and keep power through a violent uprising.
Specifically, the Times reveals that notes taken by a top deputy to then-Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen point directly to a coordinated effort between Trump and members of Congress. Those notes, which were handwritten by deputy AG Richard Donoghue, report what Trump told Rosen:
That, many legal experts said after reading the Times report, is a literal smoking gun, and it means that several Republicans in Congress are facing subpoenas for their testimony before the Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol.
Philip Bump of The Washington Postfocused in on the notation from Donoghue:
“What Donoghue’s notes suggest is that Trump had fully bought into the effort that would eventually become his Alamo: having Republican legislators block the electoral-vote counting due to take place at the Capitol on Jan. 6.”
Failing to certify counting of the electoral votes would have resulted in a Constitutional crisis. The added chaos of a riot at the Capitol would have provided the perfect opportunity for Trump to declare a national emergency and refuse to hand over the reins of power to Joe Biden. It also would have provided an “excuse” for a coup d’etat. And it would have even had the blessing of a faction in Congress.
Once again, quoting Philip Bump:
“Some congressional Republicans clearly did their best to aid Trump’s effort. On the morning of Jan. 6, (Rep Mo) Brooks spoke before Trump at a rally outside the White House. It was time, he said, to ‘start taking down names and kicking ass.’ It’s not clear if any of those in attendance did the former, but some clearly did the latter.”
Brooks, along with Reps. Jim Jordan, Jim Banks, Lauren Boebert, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Kevin McCarthy (and perhaps others) should be compelled to testify before the 1/6 committee. If they aren’t, expect a repeat of what we saw in January to take place in 2024. And if that happens, it will be the end of the American experiment with democracy and self-rule and the beginning of fascism.
During his time in office, failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump absolutely loved to brag about how he was donating his $400,000 a year presidential salary to charity, with the White House announcing every few months where the money had gone.
But did Trump actually donate four years worth of salary? That’s the question being asked by Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporter David Fahrenthold, who says he’s been unable to determine where some of the money went:
“Donald Trump promised to give away his $400,000 presidential salary. And he kept that promise, publicly announcing each gift — at least, for his first 3½ years in office.
“Then, in the middle of last year, the announcements stopped.
“Trump’s White House never said where — or even if — he donated the last $220,000 of his salary, covering the final six months of 2020 and the first 20 days of 2021.
“Now, six months after he left office, it’s not clear where Trump donated that remaining salary — or if he donated it at all.”
Of course, it was established years ago that Trump is a lifelong grifter and pathological liar, so it wouldn’t exactly come as a surprise if he had pocketed some or all of the money he claims he gave away. After all, this is the same Trump who stole money from a charity that bore his name and later had to shut down that charity or be charged with criminal behavior by the Attorney General of New York.
Even though the Postcontacted people working for Trump to inquire about if he had donated the last part of his salary for 2020, no one actually got back to the newspaper to confirm or deny those donations had been made.
As the old saying goes, Grifters are gonna grift, and that’s been the case with Donald Trump since he first entered the business world decades ago.
