Trump’s Former Chief Of Staff Says The Failed Ex-POTUS Is Meeting With His ‘Cabinet Members’ In New Jersey

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:

“Well, we met with several of our cabinet members tonight, we actually had a follow-up member, meeting with some of our cabinet members, and as we were looking at that, we were looking at what does come next. I’m not authorized to speak on behalf of the president, but I can tell you this, Steve. We wouldn’t be meeting tonight if we weren’t making plans to move forward in a real way, with President Trump at the head of that ticket.”

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.

Fragile Looking Trump Claims People ‘Threw Up’ As Ballots Were Counted ‘5 Times’ For Biden

Saturday evening in Phoenix, failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump dusted off his greatest hits from the 2020 election and once again proved that he’s unfit to speak without the supervision of a medical team.

He sniffed. He slurred words left and right. And he even suggested that the courts were on the verge of doing “great things” that would put him back in the White House very soon. He looked like he was at least 90: Frail, gaunt, pathetic.

Even from the opening, it was clear the evening was going to be scripted by Samuel Beckett with Salvador Dali providing the drugs:

While he was at it, Trump also attacked Arizona GOP Gov. Doug Ducey and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R), saying neither of them does anything at all, which of course is pure projection on Donnie’s behalf:

Later in the extended, factually-challenged rant conducted by the Donald, he said votes in Georgia were counted three to five times. So many times, he insisted, that people “threw up” as they watched what was happening.

Also, the slurring was much worse than usual. Some of the words he attempted to pronounced sounded more like the babblings of a newborn than the utterings of a so-called ex-president:

The only good thing about the Phoenix speech is that it’s quite clear he’s deteriorating rapidly. He’s falling apart physically and mentally, and it’s not hard to imagine him in a year or two being wheeled onstage by a nurse and not being able to speak a word. He’ll just raise a shaky arm, wave for a second, soil himself, and be returned to his hospital bed.

Donald Trump is finished. He’s done and everyone seems to realize it except him and the members of his death cult.

Trump Raised $75 Million For ‘Ballot Reviews’ But Spent It On Legal Fees And Travel: Report

Over the first six months of this year, failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump’s political action committee (PAC) raised some $75 million, ostensibly to pay for “ballot reviews” such as the one underway in Arizona.

But the money has been spent on everything but those election reviews, according to the Washington Post:

“The Save America leadership PAC — which has few limits on how it can spend its money — has paid for some of the former president’s travel, legal costs and staff, along with other expenses, according to the people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe the group’s inner workings. The PAC has held onto much of its cash.

“Even as he assiduously tracks attempts by his allies to cast doubt on the integrity of last year’s election, Trump has been uninterested in personally bankrolling the efforts, relying on other entities and supporters to fund the endeavors, they said.”

It’s also believed that Trump will use the millions to back GOP candidates in the 2022 midterm elections and help start a war chest he can tap if he decides to run for a second term in 2024.

The former president collected the $75 million through online ads encouraging supporters to help him “secure” elections. One of those ads which ran on Facebook read:

“We need you to join the fight to SECURE OUR ELECTIONS!”

But Trump is willing to let others foot the bill for securing elections, leading Trump biographer Tim O’Brien to remark:

“That is probably the most lucrative thing he’s had in terms of cash flow since the Plaza casino in Atlantic City. This is just as lucrative. He has recognized because of what happened after the election — he can make money as a candidate.”

For Donald Trump, it’s all about the grift, and it always will be.

Donald Trump Elections Fox News WTF?!

Tucker Carlson Threatens Another Insurrection If Election ‘Audits’ Aren’t Believed

If you’re like most rational American television viewers, you don’t watch Fox News for the same reason you don’t eat out of the toilet.

And things are getting even more noxious and disturbing over at Fox, especially when it comes to the nightly ramblings and conspiracy theories of Tucker Carlson, who seems to be threatening that another insurrection much like the one that took place on January 6 at the U.S. Capitol is going to happen if Congress doesn’t agree to accept the results of the bogus “audits” taking place in states such as Arizona.

On his show, according to Media Matters, Carlson referenced what he dubbed “fraud” that had allegedly taken place in the counting of ballots in Fulton County, Georgia, telling viewers:

“We already know what happened. We’ve counted those same ballots four times. The election has been certified. Stop already,” Carlson said mockingly. “And that’s the argument that Fulton County has used in court to keep those ballots locked away in a warehouse. Except it’s not true. It now appears there actually was meaningful voter fraud in Fulton County, Georgia, last November. That is not a conspiracy theory; it’s true.”

No, it isn’t true. Not even a little bit.

Specifically, Carlson and other right-wing clowns have suggested that batches of ballots were double-scanned to increase the vote total for Democrats. But that lie has already been debunked on numerous occasions:

“Just as with prior conspiracy theories about the election in Georgia, this scrutiny on ballot scans in the initial count is conveniently ignoring a simple fact: There was already a manual hand recount of the 5 million paper ballots in the state, which corrected a few mistakes in local areas but did not significantly alter Biden’s victory in the state. As a result, the double-scanning of some small number of ballots in the initial count would no longer have an impact even in a very close race.”

According to Carlson, yet another audit is needed in Georgia. And if there isn’t one — if all the absurd demands of right-wing conspiracy theorists who cannot accept the results of the 2020 election are not met — there’s going to be another insurrection by crazies who refuse to accept certified facts:

“Without answers to legitimate questions like the one we just posed — and those are legitimate questions — democracy dies. People begin to understand that the system they’ve been told is on the level is in fact rigged, and when they believe that, God knows what they do next.”

That’s almost the same exact wording Carlson used to justify the Jan. 6 insurrection. He told viewers then:

“If people begin to believe that their democracy is fraudulent, if they conclude that voting is a charade, the system is rigged and it is run in secret by a small group of powerful, dishonest people who are acting in their own interests, then God knows what could happen.”

God knows why Tucker Carlson is allowed to remain on the airwaves and spew his dangerous, incendiary rhetoric. But as long as he is, none of us are safe.

Report: Eric Trump ‘Flipped Out’ On Election Night And Asked ‘How Can This Be Happening?’

On the evening of November 3, 2020, as it became increasingly clear that Donald Trump was losing in states he thought he would win, a wave of panic swept over the Trump family, according to I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J. Trump’s Catastrophic Final Year, a new book by Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker of the Washington Post.

Leonnig and Rucker note that what had been predicted by many began to take shape early on Election Night, and that was bad news for Trump:

“As the night wore on, some of Trump’s advisers began to worry. Public polls, as well as the Trump campaign’s internal surveys, had long projected that the race was Biden’s to lose, and that prediction was bearing out as more precincts reported votes from battleground states.”

When Fox News called Arizona for Joe Biden shortly before 11:30 p.m., all momentum shifted firmly to the Democrats, and the air began to go out of Trump and his campaign team:

“Trump, who had been watching Fox, was livid. He could not fathom that the conservative news network he had long considered an extension of his campaign was the first news organization to call Arizona for Biden. This was a betrayal. His top advisers, who had been in the Map Room at the time, rushed upstairs to see the president. Giuliani followed them.”

Eric Trump, who had been following returns in the White House Map Room and had confidently predicted his father would win at least 322 electoral votes (he actually wound up with 232, far below Eric’s rosy projection), began to lose it totally, according to the book:

“‘The election is being stolen,’ the president’s 36-year-old son said. ‘Where are these votes coming from? How is this legit?’

“He yelled at the campaign’s data analysts, as if it were their fault that his father’s early leads over Biden were shrinking. ‘We pay you to do this,’ he said. ‘How can this be happening?'”

Eric’s brother, the perpetually clueless Don Jr., insisted:

“There’s no way we lose to this guy.”

But they did lose. And they lost by a wide margin, with Biden and Kamala Harris winning by a margin of 306 to 232 votes in the Electoral College.

Why all the surprise from the Trumps? Because they believed their own bullshit. They presented a false narrative and began to think it was real. They fell for their own con job.

But what probably terrified Donald, Don Jr., Eric, and Ivanka the most as the election results rolled in was the cold reality that now they wouldn’t have the legal protections afforded to sitting presidents. There would be no willing accomplice at the Justice Department to protect them. The indictments could begin as soon as the Donald was no longer head of state.

And the indictments have indeed begun. More are on the way. Because karma is catching up with the Trumps. And there’s nothing they can do to forestall the inevitable.
