Fox News GOP Whining Ron DeSantis

Fox News Is BIG MAD Because Casey DeSantis Has Been Dubbed The ‘Walmart Melania’

Proving yet again that the biggest snowflakes on the planet are those on the political right end of the spectrum, they’re in full meltdown mode over at Fox News because an article from the Daily Beast dared to refer to Casey DeSantis, wife of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis who is also seeking the 2024 GOP Presidential nomination as “Walmart Melania.”

Katie Baker wrote this about Mrs. DeSantis, and quite frankly, it’s on-point in more than a few ways:

The First Lady of Florida showed up on the campaign trail in Iowa this weekend wearing a ghastly black leather jacket—American flag on the front, an alligator and the silhouette of her state on the back, with the sneering words, “Where Woke Goes to Die”—that brought to mind nothing so much as the racks of a Red State big-bin store where it would be retailing for $24.99.

To be fair, Casey DeSantis wore the bomber to a charity biker rally and I’m sure the campaign intended it to be a viral moment, like Melania Trump’s infamous “I Really Don’t Care” coat that the former First Lady donned to check out the border crisis.

But it was the title of Baker’s article, “Casey DeSantis is the Walmart Melania” that drew the ire of the gang at Fox’s “Outnumbered,” where the discussion soon turned to how it was yet another attack on average Americans, though they failed to explain what’s “average” about either Ron or Casey DeSantis.

According to Emily Compagno, who was one of the guests on “Outnumbered,” Baker’s article was a slap at every American who struggles to make ends meet and therefore shops at Walmart.

“This is why it is so repetitively disheartening to open up the paper and read what people actually think of us. Us. We are the ones who put food on our table. We earn our income. We fly the American flag. We wear clothes from where we can afford proudly, and rightly so.”


“We disgust the elitist left. We disgust them by existing and by being proud of being American, being proud of being modest and humble and coming from humble beginnings and moderate ends.”

We? Who in the hell is Compagno trying to pretend she is? Because the truth is that she’s a wealthy attorney and TV host who can afford to shop anywhere she wants and probably doesn’t hang out around Walmart very much. After all, she has a net worth of millions.

Casey DeSantis, by many reports, is a conniving and cutthroat spouse who protects her husband because she sees herself getting ahead as a result of being his wife.

But here’s some free advice for Casey, Ron, and the gang at Fox: You’d better grow some thicker skin because the barbs are only going to get sharper from this point forward.

Or, as Harry Truman once wisely advised, If you can’t stand the heat, get the hell out of the kitchen.

MAGA Faithful Ready To Primary ‘Sellout’ Marjorie Taylor Greene In 2024: Report

There was a time not so very long ago when Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) was the darling of the MAGA wing of the GOP, perhaps second only to Donald Trump himself when it came to the love the far right had for her and her frequently bizarre antics and pronouncements.

Now, however, as she aligns herself with Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) — including a vote last week in favor of legislation raising the debt ceiling — Greene is being targeted and may well wind up being primaried as she seeks reelection in 2024, according to a fascinating piece from The Daily Beast’s Zachary Petrizzo and Ursula Perano, who note that the Georgia Republican has suddenly become persona non grata among some of the MAGA faithful.

In the past week, former Trump administration official-turned-podcaster Steve Bannon led the charge, calling for Greene to be primaried by a more right-wing candidate who is “REAL MAGA.”

A fringe set of far-right allies soon followed.

“I 100 percent support a challenge to MTG, and look forward to meeting and helping a serious challenge to her,” Stew Peters told The Daily Beast.

One figure of the far right, activist and former Florida congressional candidate Laura Loomer, told The Daily Beast she’s already exploring a primary against Greene. As of now, Loomer doesn’t live in Georgia—let alone Greene’s district—but that hasn’t stopped her from wishcasting.

It turns out that Greene knows she’s on the outs with the MAGA morons who compose much of the GOP base, but based on a text message she sent to former BFF Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), she doesn’t seem to care, though that could certainly change if she sees her House seat slipping away come 2024.

“I have almost the same identical voting record as Thomas Massie, the most fiscally conservative member of Congress. And I voted with him on this bill,” Greene wrote in the lengthy text, referring to the debt limit deal. “And Bannon, who was senior counsel to Trump in the WH and responsible for the first debt ceiling increase bc Bannon is reckless and no where near fiscally responsible, is now telling everyone I should be primaried.”

“I just had a town hall in Cobb County last night in the most populated area in my district and it was extremely successful. Standing ovation when I went in and standing ovation when I left,” Greene continued.

Could Greene actually wind up losing in 2024? Perhaps, especially if she continues to vote against (or in the case of the debt limit legislation, what she votes for) what the most extreme members of her constituency are opposed to, she might just be vulnerable in a primary battle, especially if the GOP winds up nominating Trump again, which would put the congresswoman in a difficult bind: Pledge loyalty to Donnie or remain tethered to McCarthy and House Republican leadership.

Then again, there have been suggestions that Trump might choose Greene as his running mate, but her sudden coalition with McCarthy could make that little more than a pipe dream on her part.

One thing is certain: The American political scene would be greatly improved if Marjorie Taylor Greene is kicked to the curb.

Mary Trump Lays Out How Donald’s GOP Primary Opponents Can ‘Humiliate’ Him During A Debate

Mary Trump, the niece of twice-impeached former president Donald Trump, said Sunday she has some free advice for Republicans who want to best her uncle in the upcoming GOP primary debates: Go for the jugular and find ways to “humiliate” the failed one-term ex-POTUS.

During an appearance on MSNBC’s “The Katie Phang Show” Sunday, Mary said she didn’t understand why her uncle’s political opponents haven’t already gone the low road to destroy Donald.

“Again, I think it’s because they’re restrained by their fear of his stranglehold on the base — I guess they should be,” she explained “You know, if they were serious people, they would understand that they have a huge opportunity to take Donald out without having to contradict him in terms of policy as if there is such a thing these days or politics.”

“Just call him what he is: he is a loser, he loses constantly, he has never legitimately won anything in his life,” she continued. “He is a thin-skinned baby who has nothing to offer but white grievance.”

She then recalled a scene from Donald Trump’s youth that she said someone needs to say to his face.

“If I were one of these candidates, I would simply show up to a debate with a bowl of mashed potatoes because that was his very first experience of humiliation was when he was being a total brat before my grandmother put dinner on the table,” she explained. “My dad had just ordered to shut him up and stop him from tormenting his little brother Robert. Took a bowl of mashed potatoes, dumped it on Donald’s head.”

“He hates that story,” she told Phang. “He has never been able to laugh at himself in a healthy way. It’s really not difficult to get under that extraordinarily thin skin of his.”

‘Holy Ghost Rider’ Mike Pence Gets Buried On Twitter For His Iowa Motorcycle Photo Op

It’s a given that politicians will do just about anything to get their name and face before the public. After all, that’s how they attempt to get attention and votes.

But a photo op doesn’t always go according to plan, as former vice president Mike Pence discovered when he climbed aboard a motorcycle and made an appearance at the annual “Roast and Ride” held by Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) in Des Moines, as the Omaha World-Herald reported.

Pence was the only White House hopeful who participated in a morning motorcycle ride for charity that is a staple of the event. He wore jeans, boots and a leather vest with patches that said “Indiana” and messages supportive of the military.

The former Indiana governor, who has made frequent trips to Iowa over the past year, is expected to launch his long-anticipated campaign at an event in Des Moines on Wednesday.

“I’ll be back a little later next week,” Pence teased the crowd when he spoke later at the rally. “I don’t have anything to announce today.”

That was all it took for Twitter to start lobbing mockery in Pence’s direction, with one comedian posting a video in which he noted, “Pence is looking like if a glass of milk was a person.”

“Looking like a wolf in biker’s clothing,” he added. “Looking like moved by the holy ghost rider.”

Others then joined the fun.


Donald Trump education WTF?!

Delusional Donald Claims The ‘Majority’ Of College Students Support Him

During his low-rated town hall with Fox host Sean Hannity, failed and indicted former president Donald Trump let loose what may well be one of the most absurd statements he’s made in the past five minutes or so.

According to the one-term, twice-impeached ex-president, the majority of college students are conservative and overwhelmingly support him.

Mediaite reports that Trump told a young man who asked him about “free speech” on college campuses, “First of all, many more conservatives on those college campuses than people understand. Many more. I would even say a majority.”

“People say, ‘Oh how can you say…’ We have a lot of support on college campuses,” Trump claimed. “You look at the work Charlie Kirk has done and others have done, such an incredible job, but we have tremendous, tremendous support.”

As he so often does, Trump then blathered on:

“But I will tell you that I passed something and signed something very strong, that if they do that, if they tell conservatives or anybody that you can’t speak on campus, no more government subsidy, no more government funds… It really changed it up, but as soon as I left they ended that.

“But it was really good. I mean you’d go to USC, which is, you know, a hotbed, and other places like that, and they were taking people and they were taking them gladly because they didn’t want to lose the subsidy. We give them tremendous amounts of money. I said no more government money to any school, any university or college that discriminates against anybody, not only conservatives, and it really solved a big problem.”

He concluded, “But as soon as I was gone that was ended. We’ll put that back on the first day.”

As for Trump’s claim that most college students support him, polls taken in 2020 prove that’s a figment of his imagination, with Forbes reporting that college students favored Biden over Trump by a 4 to 1 margin.

“Biden is viewed favorably by 49% of students, and unfavorably by 51%. Trump’s favorability rating is deeply underwater – 19% view him favorably, compared to 81% who see him unfavorably,” Forbes noted in August of 2020.

That poll shouldn’t surprise anyone. After all, Trump bragged years that that he loves the “poorly educated,” and a large chunk of his supporters fall into that category.
