Capitol Insurrection The Trump Adminstration

Hillary Clinton Only Needed 5 Words To Expertly Troll Steve Bannon

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton managed to get some sweet revenge on those allied with failed, one-term ex-President Donald Trump with a 5 word tweet she sent out Monday shortly after Steve Bannon surrendered to federal authorities being charged with criminal contempt of Congress.

HuffPost notes that Clinton was ready when the opportunity presented itself:

Clinton, who has endured years of Donald Trump’s “lock her up” smears, responded to a tweet asking, “You know who is not going to jail and has never been indicted for anything?” The person who posted that question also wished Clinton a “great weekend.”

“Thanks, it was quite restful,” wrote Clinton on Monday after Bannon surrendered to the FBI.

Twitter was in total agreement with Clinton and the shade she threw:

Don Jr. Winds Up Owning Himself When He Attempts To Troll Bill Clinton On Valentine’s Day

Donald Trump Jr. desperately wants to be relevant now that his old man is out of office and facing indictments from multiple jurisdictions on charges ranging from money laundering to inciting a riot. But Junior’s problem is that nearly every single time he tries to make a cute remark on social media, he only winds up further humiliating himself.

Take, for example, a pathetic attempt at trolling that Don Jr. aimed in the direction of former President Bill Clinton, who served two terms in office and left the White House with an approval rating of 65 percent, the highest of any departing president measured since Harry Truman.

The former president sent out a nice tweet to his wife on Valentine’s Day:

No matter what marital problems the Clintons may have had over the years, they’re still together and still care for each other. And the tweet is sweet, even touching.

So where in the hell does a shitbag like Donald Trump Jr. get the nerve to reply in any manner whatsoever? Yet reply he did:

What’s so funny, Junior? Shouldn’t we all be laughing at the absurdity of you, a divorced father of five who cheated on the mother of his children tossing shade at a couple who have accomplished more than you ever will? Yes we should. And we damn sure will:

You should probably sit down and shut the hell up, Junior. But I’m betting you’re too damn clueless and self-deluded to manage that.



Don Jr. Attacks The Clintons For Their Connections To Jeffrey Epstein And Immediately Regrets It

Donald Trump Jr. is a smug little prick who absolutely loves to try and troll people on social media, but the majority of the time he only serves to humiliate himself and his family with his moronic postings which almost always wind up backfiring badly.

And yet, despite his repeated failures at being snarky or cute, Junior decided he’d take a cheap shot at the Clintons, firing off this tweet on Monday:

Has Don Jr. completely forgotten that his own father has numerous ties to Epstein, too? Hell, a woman even filed suit against Trump and Epstein for allegedly raping her when she was only 13! Here’s a sampling of what she alleges in her lawsuit:

“Jane Doe” aka “Katie Johnson” – 1994. Lawsuit filed June 2016, refiled October 2016 as reported by Buzzfeed and others, then dropped in November 2016.
Jane Doe is an unnamed plaintiff, who has also gone by “Katie Johnson” in legal papers. She claims she was repeatedly raped by Trump and Jeffery Epstein at Epstein’s New York City apartment in 1994, when she was 13 years old. A witness, also given a pseudonym — “Tiffany Doe” — said she recruited “Jane Doe” and others. Doe, using the name “Johnson,” gave an interview to the Daily Mail in which she said she did not know who Trump was at the time of the alleged attack but identified him later when she saw him on television. It is not known why she withdrew the lawsuit. She has not spoken publicly or withdrawn her rape allegation since then.

Within minutes, others on Twitter reminded Junior of his daddy’s own dirty laundry and connections to the late sex offender:

There’s an old saying that the entire Trump family would be wise to heed, but probably won’t: Better to remain be silent and be thought a fool than speak and remove all doubt.

Republicans Who Reluctantly Voted For Trump In 2016 Say They’re Ready To Help Elect Joe Biden

Four years ago, when Donald Trump faced off against Hillary Clinton, there were many Republicans who were uncomfortable with Trump as their candidate. Despite that, they couldn’t bring themselves to cast a ballot for Clinton, so they reluctantly gave their vote to Trump, thinking he wouldn’t be that bad as president.

But as Ohioan Matt Borges notes, that was a big mistake.

In 2016, Borges was head of the Ohio Republican Party, and he publicly criticized candidate Trump. But when Election Day rolled around, Borges held his nose and gave his vote to Trump. He told NBC News he now deeply regrets that decision and won’t make the same mistake again:

“Nothing was going to get me to vote for Hillary Clinton. I grew up in this business learning to fight against everything the Clintons were for. I knew her, and in my mind, I knew what a Clinton presidency was going to be like. A lot of folks are like me. They understand that Joe Biden isn’t the same kind of candidate.”

That raises a question which has to be haunting the 2020 Trump campaign: Could the biggest reason Trump fails to win a second term in office come from inside the GOP?

Another Republican with buyer’s remorse is Tim Miller, who once served as a spokesman for the Republican National Committee. Now he’s  formed the super PAC Republican Voters Against Trump. Miller explained the reason for his PAC:

“What we wanted to create is a movement among rank-and-file Republicans to give them a sense of community and a sense of encouragement from walking away from this president. (That will) create a permission structure for them to say for the first, maybe only, time that they won’t vote for a Republican.”

Trump remains highly popular within the Republican Party, but polls show that many independents who voted for Trump in 2016 are ready to help elect Biden. And the most recent New York Times/Siena University poll revealed that only 61 percent of self-identified Republicans said they think the country is on the right track with Trump as president. But that’s not the only bad news in the numbers:

“The president’s support among the groups that were key to his win in 2016 — seniors, non-college-educated whites and men — has also been shrinking in multiple polls over the past two months.”

The 2020 election may well be similar to 2016: The race could come down to a few thousand votes in a several key battleground states. And if so, even a few Republicans voting for Biden or refusing to cast a ballot for Trump could make all the difference. That’s what Tim Miller is counting on:

“If you were for Trump last time and you write in Ronald Reagan this time, that is plus one for Joe Biden.”

And that alone could make Biden the 46th President of the United States.

Coronavirus Donald Trump

Hillary Just Said What We’ve All Been Thinking About Trump’s Handling Of The COVID-19 Crisis

Today we learned that Donald Trump is planning to pretend the COVID-19 crisis is all gone as soon as Easter, maybe sooner, not because the danger will be gone, but because he’s terrified of losing in November if the economy goes down the tubes, which it very likely will no matter what he does.

Keep in mind that the vast majority of medical experts say the United States needs to remain in a state of shutdown and active social distancing until the number of new infections hits zero for at least seven days. That’s how China and South Korea shut down the virus, but of course Trump thinks he knows better than anyone else, no matter the topic.

But not everyone is willing to die so Donald can boost the Dow Jones Industrial Average a few thousand points and help provide revenue for the president’s filthy rich friends and family. And if and when the number of deaths rises dramatically after Trump has given the all-clear signal, the American people will be done with Trump. Based on recent polls, they already are, no matter what happens with the stock market or Boeing’s profit margin.

Into this charnel house of surreal pronouncements from our so-called president, we finally have some humor, logic, and reason, courtesy of Hillary Clinton, who reminded us all today why millions of us voted for her instead of the clown-in-chief.

On Twitter (which we all know Trump keeps a close eye on), Hillary posted this:

There was also this:

Game, set, and match, Hillary Clinton.

We’ve all been thinking it, but she managed to give it voice. Donald Trump will always put profits over people. You and I are not human beings, we are merely cattle for the corporations to exploit and sell their wares to.

Thank you, Madame President, for saying what needed to be said. No wonder you won by 3 million votes.
