Ivanka Gets Humiliated For Bragging About Her ‘Warrior’ Father During A*s-Kissing Speech

On Monday evening in Dalton, Georgia, Donald Trump spoke at what is probably his final political rally as president.

Paying a last-minute visit to the Peach State to try and shore up the flagging political fortunes of the state’s two incumbent Republican senators, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, Trump was introduced by his daughter, Ivanka, who was in full ass-kissing mode, heaping praise on her father as she told the adoring MAGA crowd that he was “her warrior” and “the people’s president.”

 

Warrior? The people’s president? Puh-leeze!! Donald Trump is about as much of a “warrior” as a toothless lion. And voters made it clear in November that they don’t want Trump to be their president anymore.

Let the online mockery and trolling begin:

Perhaps the best thing about Donald Trump losing the 2020 election is that it’s a package deal: We no longer have to see him or his spawn near the White House and they can be relegated to the ash heap of history.

Buh-bye!

Loeffler Goes Full Jim Crow With Disgusting Racist Attack On Raphael Warnock

Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) has seen the polls and early voting results in the Peach State, and she knows she’s trailing her Democratic opponent, Rev. Raphael Warnock. But rather than point out where she stands on the issues — COVID-19, the economy, health care — Loeffler decided she’d head straight for the gutter and attack Warnock for daring to be an African-American man.

During a campaign rally Saturday evening, Loeffler tried to suggest that Warnock was some sort of depraved black man, the same kind of evil stereotype that was frequently used in the old days of Jim Crow, when a black man could be lynched for so much as looking at a white woman for too long.

Dave Weigel of the Washington Post caught part of Loeffler’s speech, and he shared it on Twitter:

Sherrilyn Ifill, president and director-counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, pointed out exactly the depths to which Loeffler had just stooped:

Keep in mind that Loeffler — who seems to believe she alone is fitting to be a Senator for a Southern state — was appointed to her seat by the Republican governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp. She has no prior government service and her sole claim to fame seems to be that she married a multimillionaire Wall Street tycoon and travels in the right social circles.

Kelly Loeffler and her equally disgusting counterpart, Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) are both bigoted cowards who aren’t worthy of the U.S. Senate. Hopefully Georgia voters will send both of them to an early retirement next Tuesday.

Donald Trump May Have Just Handed The Senate To Democrats

Donald Trump absolutely loves to brag that he’s a brilliant tactician and businessman, and yet his multiple bankruptcies and endless failures in every phase of his life prove that his bragging is nothing but hot air.

And now we have yet another example of how Trump’s actions as president may have cost his party control of the U.S. Senate at a time when the GOP is desperately trying to hang on to the last bit of leverage they have in Washington.

When the House of Representatives passed a bill on Monday that would increase the direct COVID relief stimulus payments to Americans from $600 to $2,000 (which Trump has said he supports), he placed Republicans — especially the two Georgia Republicans who are trying to win a runoff election — in a very precarious position, as Washington Post reporter Libby Casey pointed out Monday on MSNBC:

“This puts Senate Republicans in a tough spot because they now have to go on the record, either saying they support this $2,000 check or they don’t support the $2,000 check. And if you’re, for example, two Republicans running for Senate in Georgia with a vote in just a handful of days, you’re going to have to go on the record about this. And it just makes me think, Ari, with friends like these, who needs enemies, because President Trump is putting Republicans in a very tough position.”

Not only does it put Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler of Georgia on the spot, it could also potentially take them off the campaign trail as the January 5 runoff election draws closer. And that could cost them reelection, Politico notes:

“Under Senate rules, (Sen. Bernie) Sanders has the ability to keep the chamber in during the holiday week and likely mess with the campaign schedules of Sens. David Perdue (R-Ga.) and Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.). Those two face Jan. 5 runoff races for control of the Senate against Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, who are both campaigning on the $2,000 checks.”

All of this is the result of Donald Trump dragging his feet on signing the coronavirus relief bill after initially saying he wouldn’t unless it contained the $2,000 direct payments to Americans. Then he signed bill legislation with only $600, likely screwing over two senators who are facing strong Democratic challengers.

Donald Trump is a brilliant negotiator? Please! He’s a doddering fool who’s incapable of rational thought.

Georgia Senators Loeffler And Perdue Heckled By Trump Supporters At Campaign Rally With Ivanka

The Georgia Senate runoffs are now just two weeks away, and based on the way the two incumbents were treated on Monday during a campaign event that featured Ivanka Trump, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue might want to start packing up their offices.

 

According to the New York Times, Loeffler and Perdue shared the stage with Ivanka at a rally in Milton, Georgia, a rural community 27 miles away from the City of Atlanta, with the first daughter telling attendees:

“Georgia will decide if our children grow up under an oppressive government or if America remains the land of the free.”

An oppressive government? Isn’t that what we’ve had for the last four years with a madman in the Oval Office?

Ivanka went on to say more polite things about the two senators, both of whom were heckled by pro-Trump partisans in the crowd:

“Besides the shared sense of significance, the rallies had little in common. Mr. Perdue and Ms. Loeffler were both heckled by members of the audience, who called on them to more forcefully back Mr. Trump’s attempts to subvert the election. Some held signs calling for a special session of Congress to overturn the Electoral College vote, while others pushed the senators to vote against certifying the election results.”

One woman at the rally said she was furious with Loeffler:

“Nancy Babbitt, who attended the rally, was upset that Ms. Loeffler had, to this point, refused to say whether she would vote to certify the election results in the Senate on Jan. 6, the day after the runoffs. Ms. Babbitt said she was unsure that Ms. Loeffler and Mr. Perdue were going to win, because in failing to secure the most loyal Trump supporters, ‘they are missing the MAGA vote.

‘What are they hiding?’ Ms. Babbitt asked.”

Republicans attacking Republicans. Sounds like Trump has set off a GOP civil war. All because he cannot accept the fact that the majority of Americans voted against him.

GOP In Panic Mode As Bad News Comes In From The Georgia Senate Runoffs

Just last week, President-Elect Joe Biden was in Atlanta, Georgia, to rally Democrats to get out and vote in the two Senate runoffs during the early voting period in the Peace State, which began on December 14 and continues until December 31 in many counties

 

Early figures of early voting in Georgia have also been released, and they suggest an enormous turnout for the special election, which is very bad news for Republicans, who never do well when voter turnout surges.

According to Newsweek, data from the Georgia Secretary of State’s office had encouraging news for Democrats, who will benefit from increased voter participation:

“168,093 people cast in-person absentee ballots—a significant increase from the roughly 128,000 Georgians who participated in the first day of in-person early voting for the November general election.

“That brings the total number of votes cast so far in the Georgia Senate runoffs to 482,250 as the state has already received 314,157 absentee ballots through the mail.”

Democrats also tend to vote absentee more than Republicans do, and that was proven during the November general election, when mail voting numbers for Democrats were at record levels, with many voters choosing not to vote in person with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The other bad news for the GOP came on the number of absentee ballots that have been requested for the Senate runoffs:

“More than 1 million absentee ballots have been requested for the runoffs next month when incumbents Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue will face off against Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff.”

If Ossoff and Warnock win the runoff election, the U.S. Senate would be evenly split, 50-50 between Democrats and Republicans. But any tie-breaking vote would be cast by Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris, meaning Democrats would have control of the Senate, House, and White House, which would be extremely beneficial in passing legislation and getting presidential nominees confirmed.

Democrats have been on a winning streak in Georgia recently, turning the state blue for a Democratic presidential candidate for the first time since 1992, and now holding the keys to which party will control the Senate, as former President Barack Obama noted when he held a virtual rally earlier this month, remarking:

“You are now once again the center of our civic universe because the special election in Georgia is going to determine, ultimately, the course of the Biden presidency and whether Joe Biden and Kamala Harris can deliver legislatively all of the commitments they’ve made.”

Time to take all power from Republicans for their enabling of Donald Trump. That’s what’s at stake in Georgia.
