DeSantis And Trump In Angry Showdown Over Donald’s Planned Florida Rally This Weekend

As he always does, Donald Trump is once again proving that there is no one he won’t toss overboard in his effort to promote himself and satiate his maniacal narcissism.

This time, however, the conflict between Trump’s need to be adored and the potential political blowback it could cause for a rising star in the Republican Party is more pronounced than ever because it includes a body count.

The failed one-term former president has a rally planned this weekend in Sarasota. But the state of Florida is currently in the middle of a horrible human tragedy: The collapse of a high-rise condominium in Surfside.

Each day, more people are confirmed dead in the condo collapse, and over a hundred or more are still missing and feared dead. So it would seem the wrong time to hold a rally, wouldn’t it?

Yet despite that, Trump is refusing to heed the pleadings of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who is seen as a major contender for the GOP presidential nomination in 2024.

According to the Washington Examiner, Trump and his staff won’t even consider delaying the rally:

“DeSantis’s office has ‘made a direct plea’ to the former president’s team, calling on it to postpone the Saturday event in Sarasota. One Florida Republican bluntly said Trump and his team need to ‘read the room.’

“‘The governor is getting tested here as to how far he’s going to be pushed before he breaks ranks with President Trump. And he has to be very careful because this is Trump country,’ this source said. ‘The base loves the president. But they equally love Ron. It’s a showdown going on right now.’

“For now, the Trump camp is holding firm. ‘Nobody wants to cancel,’ a source close to Trump told the Washington Examiner.”

Nobody wants to cancel because no one wants to be the person that has to tell Trump he can’t go to Sarasota and lie for 90 minutes about how the election was stolen from him. That’s all he does now, and that narrative isn’t exactly good for DeSantis, who is in Trump’s shadow whether he realizes it or not.

And yet, DeSantis could truly make a name for himself if he insisted that Trump not show up. He could refuse to grant space for Trump’s rally. And he’d probably get tremendous bipartisan support if he did.

But like nearly every chickenshit Republican, DeSantis is terrified of what happens if he crosses Trump. It could cost him a second term as governor and destroy his chances of ever running for president.

Will Ron DeSantis grow a pair and put his foot down when it comes to Trump? Of course not. He doesn’t have a set of balls and like every other Republican in the Age of Trump, even if he did have stones, he’d gladly put them in a plastic bag and and hand them to his orange Lord and Savior.

No matter what DeSantis does, he’s screwed. That’s what happens when you sell your soul to the devil and get nothing in return for it but a fading MAGA cap.

Congress GOP Police in America Politics WTF?!

Senate Republicans Are Now Refusing To Fund The Capitol Police Force

Republicans love to pretend they support the police across the nation, even going to far as to attach themselves to the “Blue Lives Matter” movement which began in 2014 and remains a national force today.

And yet, when it comes time to put action behind the slogans, we Republicans in the current Congress refusing to meet with hero officers who protected them on January 6 and even refusing to shake the hand of Capitol Police officers who helped repel the pro-Trump rioters who were determined to subvert the will of the American people.

As if that hypocrisy isn’t bad enough, now Senate Republicans are refusing to join negotiations that would provide funding for the Capitol Police Force. Instead, Republican senators want to go on recess starting next week. The Capitol Police Force runs out of funding in August, the very same time Congress will again be in recess.

Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-CT) noted Monday that Republicans seem utterly disinterested in making sure the security officers who protect each and ever member of Congress have the funds they need to continue doing their jobs:

“The January 6 insurrection left a path of destruction through the seat of our democracy and left our Capitol Police force overburdened and under-resourced resulting from unanticipated costs associated with the attack, including significant overtime duty and the need for retention bonuses.  For 32 days, Senate Republicans have refused to join bipartisan negotiations to address these urgent security needs, and now the Capitol Police risks running out of funding this summer.  I am committed to moving a bill in the Senate to address these important needs and prevent this self-made crisis; it must be done.”

Will Senate Republicans come to their senses and do their jobs, or will they leave the Capitol Police on the verge being unable to pay salaries of the officers who so capably protect the people we elected to represent us?

There’s an old saying that perfectly describes the modern-day GOP when it comes to their “commitment” to the police: They’re all hat and no cattle.

GOP Whining Joe Biden Politics Polls

Conservatives Have An Online Hissy Fit After Their Favorite Poll Shows Biden’s Approval At Record High

Conservatives love to cite polls from the right-leaning Rasmussen Reports as evidence that their candidates are more popular than other polls indicate, considering it to be the “gold standard” of public opinion polls. Hell, even failed, one-term former President Donald Trump was fond of praising Rasmussen as “proof” that he was going to win a second term in office.

So it comes as a very bitter pill that Rasmussen has just released a new poll showing President Joe Biden’s approval rating at an all-time high in their survey, standing at 54% approval and 43% disapproval.

In comparison, at this point in his presidency, Trump’s approval rating was a pathetic 39%, which means he was badly underwater even though he was still supposedly in the “honeymoon” period of his administration.

It should also be noted that Trump left office (after inciting a riot at the U.S. Capitol that left five people dead), with an approval rating of 34%, according to Gallup. The average of his presidency was 41%, a record low, and a full four points lower than any other president when departing the White House.

The Rasmussen poll didn’t sit well with those who voted for Trump twice, so they had a hissy fit on Twitter, accusing the polling firm of being biased, denying reality, and making other outrageous claims, much like their orange god. Take a look:

Ah, the tears of right-wing snowflakes are so damn sweet.

Obama Unplugged: Tells Donors Trump Is ‘Corrupt’ And A ‘F**king Lunatic’

Admit, it. You’ve always wondered what former President Barack Obama thought about the clown who took over in 2016 and quickly set about ruining the American economy, failing to contain a deadly pandemic, and turning the United States into a global pariah.

 

And now, thanks to an excerpt from a soon-to-be published book by Edward-Isaac Dovere entitled Battle for the Soul: Inside the Democrats’ Campaigns to Defeat Donald Trump, we know that in private Obama let it rip and tol Democratic donors exactly that he thought about his successor.

The Guardian published the excerpt from Dovere’s book, and it makes clear Obama had zero respect for the inept Trump:

“He’s a madman,” Dovere reports Obama telling “big donors looking to squeeze a reaction out of him in exchange for the big checks they were writing to his foundation”.

“More often: ‘I didn’t think it would be this bad.’ Sometimes: ‘I didn’t think we’d have a racist, sexist pig.’ Depending on the outrage of the day … a passing ‘that fucking lunatic’ with a shake of his head.”

But perhaps the strongest remarks from President Obama were made when reports surfaced that Trump was talking to foreign leaders — including Russian President Vladimir Putin — about the investigation conducted into the 2016 election and Trump’s possible connections to the Kremlin. Even worse, Trump had those conversations without a single White House aide on the call:

“That corrupt motherfucker.”

Yep. That pretty much says it all, doesn’t it?

Even worse is that Obama is 100% right. Trump is indeed a madman, a lunatic, and a corrupt mofo.

Trump will probably read those Obama quotes and want to respond on Twitter. But he can’t, because he’s banned for life. So that means Obama gets the last word, and that’s certain to enrage Trump even more.

Congress GOP Whining Racism

GOP Congressman Gets His A*s Handed To Him When He Picks A Fight With Cardi B

Even though Republicans repeatedly insist they aren’t racist and believe in equality for all Americans, they seem to have a penchant for saying that doing things that suggest otherwise and make it clear that their lip service is nothing but hot air, a screen they use to try and hide their real feelings and intentions.

Today’s example of a blatantly racist Republican comes to us in the person of Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-WI), who proved that not only is he badly behind the times when it comes to current events, but also that he’s bigoted to the very core of his tiny, shriveled heart.

As Crooks and Liars reports, Grothman got wind of the fact that at the Grammy Awards (which took place over a month ago, on March 14), Cardi B performed the song “WAP,” which the congressman deemed “inconsistent with basic decency”:

“Grothman has a long history of blaming everything on Black people, especially Black women. In the past he’s attacked Kwanzaa, said that Black women would rather have children out of wedlock because they wanted that sweet, sweet welfare check for a couple hundred bucks per month, and justified voting for some of the most oppressive voter suppression laws in the country because when people vote illegally, they usually vote for Democrats.

“This time, it really turns out that Grothman put his foot in his mouth after stepping in a pile of dog crap. He confessed that he hadn’t even watched the performance by Cardi B until after his one minute tirade about how improper it was.”

Things quickly got much worse for Congressman Grothman when Cardi B joined the debate and verbally emasculated Rep. Doofus on Twitter, carving him up like you’d slice a roast beef before you sit down to dinner:

Oh, in case you’re wondering, Rep. Grothman is indeed a loyal lapdog for failed, one-term former President Donald Trump, who also has a problem with strong black women daring to express their opinions or even sing a song.

Fortunately, Glenn Grothman did accomplish something with his whining: He allowed us to see him get his ass handed to him by a woman with more talent and bravery in her little finger than he’ll ever have in his bloated body.

Thank you, Cardi B. You’re a great American and we love you.
