MAGA Dating App ‘The Right Stuff’ Is A Massive Flop – Even Trumpers Refuse To Use It

At the time, it probably sounded like a great idea.

The “it” was a pro-Trump dating app that even had the backing of tech billionaire Peter Thiel and carried the name “The Right Stuff.”

And yet, while The Right Stuff hasn’t even launched yet, it’s already a massive flop, according to The Daily Beast, which notes that even women who support Trump want no part of the idea.

The Right Stuff, scheduled to debut this month, was co-founded by former Trump body man and aspiring matchmaker Johnny McEntee, who recruited the sister of former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany to help launch the app.

Kayleigh’s sister, Ryann McEnany, is particularly suited for the job. She has 146,000 Instagram followers—mostly young conservatives—and has been assigned a particularly tough task: convincing attractive, conservative women to sign up.

Her basic pitch, according to Instagram messages reviewed by The Daily Beast, is a mix of flattery and exclusivity: “Hi, I’m working with John McEntee’s team on an exclusive conservative dating app called The Right Stuff that’s expected to launch this summer! We would love to get you on our list for early access to the app.”

That pitch has been falling flat in humiliating fashion, especially since there’s a legal dispute with another site of the same name.

That “The Right Stuff” has existed for more than two decades, but it has nothing to do with conservative politics.

The company is planning to send a cease-and-desist letter to the Thiel-backed operation, according to Michael Feigin, an attorney working on the case. The existing “dating service is for people that have higher levels of education, and many of them are left-wing, so they don’t like the confusion,” he said.

But even if The Right Stuff wasn’t facing a legal nightmare that threatens to land the new site in court before its official launch, there’s also the matter of potential users turning up their nose at the idea, and that itself could doom the venture, which is already being harshly mocked.

Two Republican staffers in Washington, D.C., said many young conservative women have ignored McEnany’s outreach and have instead jeeringly passed around screenshots of her messages to group chats.

Other Republican staffers in D.C.—the sort who boast about downing drinks at the Navy Yard watering hole Mission and claim their pronouns are “Yee” and “Haw” on their Instagram profiles—told The Daily Beast the app has an array of possible problems, like liberals masquerading as right-wingers and the awkward potential of matching them with conservative staffers they already know.

There’s also the matter of The Right Stuff being incredibly restrictive, refusing to allow anything but heterosexual matches, which is more than a tad ironic when you consider that Peter Thiel just so happens to be gay, meaning he would be banned from his own dating app. Awkward!

Based on the early returns, it sounds like MAGA morons will be stuck having to hang out at Trump rallies and hope that someone with more than a fifth grade education (along with a full set of teeth) shows up.

The National Archives Is Now Receiving Violent Threats From Trump Supporters: Report

As it becomes clearer with each day and each new revelation that failed, one-term former president Donald Trump is very likely going to be indicted for hoarding classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, the Trump faithful are reverting to form and issuing disgusting, violent threats against the National Archives;

Axios reports that threats have spiked sharply since the FBI served a search warrant at Trump’s golf resort three weeks ago:

The National Archives isn’t the only federal agency facing a deluge of threats. The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security have also seen a surge in threats toward law enforcement after the Mar-a-Lago search.

Acting archivist Debra Steidel Wall warned in an email to staffers:

“NARA has received messages from the public accusing us of corruption and conspiring against the former President, or congratulating NARA for ‘bringing him down.’

“Neither is accurate or welcome.”

The National Archives has been trying to get Trump to return the documents took with him in violation of the law and presidential protocol for months now:

  • After the agency retrieved 15 boxes from Mar-a-Lago in January, it later confirmed that it found classified information among the documents.
  • Officials at the National Archives believed more materials were still missing and referred the matter to the Department of Justice, per the Washington Post.
  • The FBI’s search of Mar-a-Lago this month led to the removal of 11 sets of classified information, including “Various classified/TS/SCI documents” — referring to documents containing “top secret” or “sensitive compartmented information.”

It remains to be seen if the Justice Department will charge Trump, and if they will do so before or after the upcoming midterm elections in November. Considering the cautious nature of Attorney General Merrick Garland, a pre-election indictment seems unlikely.

Trumpers Are Comparing The FBI Search To The Alamo: ‘Remember Mar-a-Lago!’

If you thought you’d heard just about all of the ridiculous things Trumpers could say regarding Monday’s FBI search warrant at Mar-a-Lago, consider the latest bit of idiocy emanating from the MAGA faithful: It was just like the Alamo.

Yep, memes and hashtags are showing up all over social media with the same message: Remember Mar-a-Lago:

Of course, for anyone who bothered to pay attention in high school history class, comparing an FBI search warrant being served to a failed battle in Texas is the height of both stupidity and irony.

As History.com notes:

On February 23, a Mexican force numbering in the thousands and led by General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna began a siege of the fort. Though vastly outnumbered, the Alamo’s 200 defenders–commanded by James Bowie and William Travis and including the famed frontiersman Davy Crockett—held out for 13 days before the Mexican forces finally overpowered them. For Texans, the Battle of the Alamo became an enduring symbol of their resistance to oppression and their struggle for independence, which they won later that year. The battle cry of “remember the Alamo” later became popular during the Mexican-American War of 1846-1848.

What does Mexico, Davy Crockett, and Texas have to do with Mar-a-Lago? Nothing! Not a damn thing!

Using the twisted logic of Trump acolytes, perhaps we’re supposed to never forget that Trump’s Palm Beach golf resort was subjected to a search on Monday, August 8, but as delusional as these people are, who the hell knows?

A bigger issue, however, is why the former president was keeping such sensitive information in boxes at an unsecured location where he lives. That’s downright dangerous, and it also happens to be criminal, which is more than a tad ironic when you consider that six years ago he was chanting “Lock her up!” about Hillary Clinton for a much less serious breach of government information.

Twitter users eagerly mocked the preposterous new slogan:

The Latest MAGA Outrage: The FBI Went Through Melania’s Wardrobe Drawers Looking For Evidence

Always looking for something to be outraged by, the MAGA faithful are now obsessed with reports that when the FBI searched Mar-a-Lago on Monday in connection with a warrant issued by a federal judge, they also looked through Melania Trump’s wardrobe drawers.

What?! Oh my God! The horror!!

The story began on Fox News, which has been pushing the Melania angle in prime time, no doubt hoping to boost ratings and keep the Trump acolytes properly outraged.

If FBI agents went through Melania’s clothing, that was clearly covered in the search warrant. After all, it’s quite easy to hide documents, cell phones, cameras, and thumb drives in a drawer.

And then there’s this possibility: Maybe Melania is a co-conspirator with her husband. It wouldn’t be the first time a married couple has engaged in criminal behavior as a team.

But to hear the outcry on social media, you’d have thought they strip searched Melania.

Trumpworld Is Terrified Someone Big Has ‘Flipped’ On Donald And Is Cooperating With The FBI

Ever since the FBI served a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago on Monday, social media has been buzzing with speculation about how the Justice Department knew when and where to search current residence of disgraced former president Donald Trump.

For a few hours, former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows was the prime suspect who must have “flipped” on the Donald,” and Axios notes that “Trumpworld,” the coterie of insanely loyal MAGA morons who hang on the twice-impeached ex-president’s every utterance, is still convinced someone has been disloyal to their lord and savior:

Trumpworld is abuzz with speculation about which close aide or aides has “flipped” and provided additional sensitive information to the FBI about what former President Trump was keeping at Mar-a-Lago, sources tell Axios.  Trump’s orbit is always an environment rife with mistrust and paranoia. Now, that’s intensified.

Mistrust and paranoia could well be Donald Trump’s middle names. He traffics in conspiracy theories, lies, and bullshit. And he’s always the aggrieved party, even when the evidence suggests he’s guilty as hell and in need of some karmic adjustment.

Axios also reports the fact that the FBI focused closely on the basement at Mar-a-Lago is also playing into bizarre talk among the Trump faithful:

Christina Bobb, a lawyer for Trump, told The Washington Post his lawyers held discussions with the Justice Department this spring over materials held at Mar-a-Lago. Bobb said Trump’s legal team searched through two to three dozen boxes in a basement storage area, hunting for documents that could be considered presidential records, and turned over several items.

No, not the basement! Don’t go down there! Why? Because it’s all part of the bait and switch Trump is trying to pull. Since he knows he’s been caught red-handed, he has to try and throw people off the scent.

Whoever the “flipper” is, they’re an American hero. And if they can help put Donald Trump in prison, they deserve the President Medal of Freedom and a ticker tape parade in downtown Manhattan.
