Donald Trump GOP Whining WTF?!

Angry Trump Whines About Cable News Outlets Covering Hurricane Ida ‘All Night Long’

Failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump is livid that cable news outlets spent most of Sunday reporting on Hurricane Ida, which was bearing down on the Gulf Coast and made landfall last night.

 

During a call-in interview with right-wing radio host Todd Starnes, Trump whined that the networks should have been covering events in Afghanistan, which they did all last week:

“Because Afghanistan is not even something that can be discussed in a rational way. The level of stupidity — and we had a great agreement. And Biden admitted the other day, he made a mistake because they didn’t want him to say that no people have been killed since this agreement was signed.”

Actually, the “agreement” Trump referred to was put in place during the final months of his administration, and it was a deeply flawed plan that allowed the Taliban to take control of the country in record time. Trump even sent then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Doha, Qatar, to meet with members of the Taliban, something President Joe Biden has refused to do because he doesn’t want to give the group legitimacy the way Trump did.

Trump also claimed he had been tough on the Taliban and had told the leader of the group he would bomb his house first if anything went wrong. However, considering that the former president is a pathological liar, that’s probably complete nonsense:

“And the media, which is fake and crooked and corrupt, they’re the worst people, they’re the most corrupt people. The only thing I don’t understand is why. They’ve got to hate our country. And they are in fact the enemy of the people. But the corrupt media shows the hurricane all night long.”

Then why doesn’t Trump start his own media company? Probably because no one will invest any money on a project he’s attached to. Trump has always been a failure in the business world and is an incompetent fool who had millions of dollars handed to him by his father. He later squandered that money and had to be bailed out on multiple occasions by his family and banks such as Deutsche Bank, which is getting ready to call the Donald’s loans in later this year.

Here’s an idea for you, Donald: Put the crank away and go to bed instead of staying up all night tweaking. You’re burning out the few brain cells you have left.

Eric Trump Gets Humiliated For Demanding That Reporters Apologize To His Daddy

Ever since the story broke in The Atlantic suggesting that President Donald Trump had called American veterans who died for their country “suckers” and “loser,” the White House has been in damage control mode, desperately trying to discredit the report, even though it has now been confirmed by other media outlets, including Trump TV, aka Fox News.

So perhaps it should come as no surprise that members of the president’s family would also try to defend him, mainly because they’re afraid if he loses in November, they’ll all be charged with a litany of crimes, tried in court, and sent to prison for a great many years.


And sure enough, we have Eric Trump, who is supposedly the executive vice president of the Trump Organization, going on Twitter to outright demand that reporters who broke the story about the president slurring vets apologize. And he based his demand on an article from Breitbart, which is well-known as the festering syphilitic pustule of right-wing media that is so unreliable they once had Steve Bannon as their executive chairman.

Eric cited the Breitbart article which alleges that a top aide to former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly denied Trump had ever used the words “suckers” or “losers”:

Really, Eric? Donald Trump gets an apology because one guy disputes what his former boss said? Did this guy hear every word Trump said? Was this person present for every single conversation the president had with every person he encountered? That seems highly unlikely.


But, since Eric asked a direct question, he got the response from other Twitter users. But he probably won’t like their answers:

Nice try, Eric, but you and your father lie so much that we no longer believe a damn thing you say.

Rachel Maddow Shreds Trump For His ‘Fatal’ Insanity In A Time Of National Crisis

It should be clear to anyone — with the possible exception of the most deluded supporters of President Donald Trump — that he has completely mishandled the coronavirus pandemic and that his ineptitude will lead to even more Americans dying from the disease.

But it’s not enough to just accuse Trump of incompetence, which he has repeatedly displayed since taking office nearly four years ago. Instead, we need to take a closer look at his failure and learn the lessons that we can as we move forward.


And that’s exactly what MSNBC host Rachel Maddow did Wednesday evening on her show, noting that the uneven response across the nation when it comes to some governors — i.e Ron DeSantis in Florida and Brian Kemp in Georgia — not imposing shelter in place orders for their states until April 1 is emblematic of a much larger failure that emanates from the Trump administration:

“But without a national policy for what we are supposed to do to head off those rising numbers, that kind of patchwork is what you get. Maybe the governors don’t have stay-at-home orders, or maybe they did not watch the ‘Today’ show, there was a stay-at-home order? Which some says never the less to interpret as our federal government’s new policies. It is insane at this point. It is insane at this point.”


Trump himself could have insisted over a month ago that every state impose such a stay-at-home policy. But he didn’t, and the blame for that lies solely on him, as Maddow noted:

“You look at the other countries in the world that have an outbreak as bad as us. Well, we stand alone. You look at other countries in the world who had terrible outbreaks at least they had a national policy. It is insane. It is fatal. It is insane in terms of policies and leadership, and ethics. It is also insane in terms of how grossly mismanaged the federal government piece of this already is.”

Maddow is absolutely right in her assessment of what we’re seeing transpire as the death toll the United States passes 5,300. We’ve been told to expect as many as 240,000 deaths when all is said and done.

But it didn’t have to be this bad. It could have been prevented if we had a competent head of state with a brain and a heart. Instead, we have a fool who only cares about himself. And that is the very definition of insanity.

Donald Trump’s Lawsuit Against The New York Times Is About To Bite Him On The A*s

As he has so often done over the course of his life and business career, Donald Trump read something in a newspaper, didn’t like what it said, and decided to file a lawsuit he has no conceivable chance of winning.


At issue this time is a New York Times editorial printed on March 27, 2019 which alleged that Russia had an “overarching deal” with Trump and the 2016 Trump campaign, Politico reports:

“In the op-ed in question, headlined “The Real Trump-Russia Quid Pro Quo,” author Max Frankel asserts in part that Trump’s 2016 campaign had an ‘overarching deal’ with Russian President ‘Vladimir Putin’s oligarchy’ in order to ‘help in the campaign against Hillary Clinton,’ in exchange for ‘a new pro-Russian foreign policy, starting with relief from the Obama administration’s burdensome economic sanctions.'”

That, according to Trump and his attorneys, is libel, even though the article was clearly marked as an opinion piece and many facts from the Russia investigation have proven that the Times was absolutely right.


Attorney David Lurie, however, thinks Trump may have made a gigantic mistake by filing the lawsuit, and not just because the case will likely get laughed out of court, especially if the Times decides to move forward and not seek to have the suit dismissed.

In an article for The Daily Beast, Lurie writes:

“Since truth is a defense, if the Trump campaign’s case against Trump was to go forward to the discovery stage, the Times would inevitably seek to obtain evidence regarding whether Trump and his campaign did in fact enter into a quid pro quo arrangement with Putin. Furthermore, Trump himself would also certainly be a key witness, and would be called upon to provide testimony and documents.”


Imagine the opportunity to depose Trump under oath and ask about his connections to Russia! One lie and he’d be on the hook for perjury. And as we’ve learned over the years, Trump cannot go more than five seconds without lying. Lying is embedded in his DNA.

Lurie concludes his article by urging the Times to do exactly that: Move ahead and start discovery, just to put Trump on the spot and watch how quickly he scurries away with his tail between his legs:

“If the Times employs that strategy, it will be difficult for Trump to maintain that the Constitution prohibits him from being required to testify. After all, the campaign, a corporation Trump controls, chose to bring the case, necessarily recognizing that its principal would have to be made available to provide evidence.”

Donald Trump is a very litigious person. And history shows he usually loses when he files suit against those he feels have wronged him. But this time, one of his lawsuits could come back to bite him in the ass in a way he clearly hasn’t anticipated.

Looks Like Don Lemon Has Banned Trump Shill Jack Kingston From His Show (VIDEO)

Appearing on CNN Thursday evening, former GOP Congressman Jack Kingston began spewing one Trump administration talking point after another. It got so bad that host Don Lemon seemed to be saying that Kingston would not be appearing on the show again.

During a discussion of Charlottesville and President Trump’s reaction to an act of domestic terrorism, Kingston said:

“What if I prosecuted the largest group of white supremacists in history — oh wait that already happened.”

Lemon asked Kingston:

“Donald Trump prosecuted them? Are you talking about the attorney general and it happened under Donald Trump?”

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin also remarked:

“What are you talking about, Jack?”

Kingston, like nearly everyone who defends Trump, doubled down on his lie:

“I’m not sure of the details, but I know that I was looking at that.”


In response, Lemon scolded Kingston and told him:

“Jack, Jack, Jack. You got to dig deep in the talking points and you have to research them and make sure the talking points are true before you come on television and repeat the talking point.”

When Kingston again began trying to use lies to bolster his bogus assertion, it sounded like Lemon may have banned the Trump shill from his program:

“So, listen, Jack, I love having you but I can’t let you come here if you won’t tell the truth. And if you repeat the lie — if you repeat a lie enough people start to believe it and I don’t want lies repeated and people believing untruths on this show. I will not be a purveyor of fake news.”

Shouldn’t that be the policy for any Trump apologist who appears on a news show and tries to spread their patented BS? If they start lying, end the segment and never invite them back. It’s really just that simple.

Watch for yourself and decide if Don Lemon banned Jack Kingston:
