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.
Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo is quickly becoming just as deeply unhinged and absurd than her associates (Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham) over at Fox News, spouting off with ridiculous conspiracy theories that have no basis in fact and only serve to destroy what tiny shred of credibility she might have once had.
On Sunday, during her Fox show “Sunday Morning Futures,” Bartiromo was discussing the rise in coronavirus cases across the country with Sen. John Barasso (R-WY) and suggested the Delta variant of COVID that is putting thousands of Americans in the hospital is actually a plot to steal the 2022 midterm election:
Seriously undercutting that bogus assertion, however, is the fact that the agency tasked with assuring safe and fair elections said while Donald Trump was still president that the 2020 election — which was largely conducted via mail-in ballot — was the most secure in history, as CBS News reported last November:
“Federal election infrastructure officials said in a joint statement on Thursday that the 2020 election was the “most secure in American history.” Meanwhile, President-elect Biden picked up 11 more Electoral College votes as CBS News projected he had won Arizona, giving him a 73 vote margin over President Trump and putting him well over the 270 electoral vote threshold with a total of 290 projected votes.”
As you’d expect, Barasso was eager to agree with Bartiromo, remarking:
Did Barasso offer any proof to support what he said? Of course not! Republicans don’t believe in facts. Instead, they spread bullshit like the QAnon fakery because they know they don’t have any policy positions of their own.
Sounds like Republicans are already worried they’re going to lose in 2022, but it has nothing to do with cheating by Democrats. Instead, they can feel the country turning against them and what they stand for.
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.
Poor Ted Cruz. The Texas senator wants so badly to pretend that he has a sense of humor and is a master of internet trolling, but the problem is his efforts at trolling always come back to slap him right upside his moronic grin.
This time Teddy decided he’d try to make fun of President Joe Biden, a man who has accomplished more in his life than Cruz ever will.
Cruz saw a posting on the right-wing website The Daily Caller referencing Biden saying that he had once had the honor of driving an 18-wheel truck. Rather than just letting that pass, Teddy thought he’d post a photo of himself sitting in the cab of a truck with the caption: “Pics or it didn’t happen.”
That’s the best Cruz can do? No wonder his Senate colleagues reportedly hate him. He’s a douchebag with no sense of humor who thinks he’s superior to everyone else.
It didn’t take long before Twitter gave Cruz a giant dose of internet karma:
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.
