A woman who supports disgraced former president Donald Trump told NBC News correspondent Vaughn Hillyard that there will be a “civil war” in the United States if the failed ex-president is convicted for any of his many alleged crimes.
Hillyard spoke with the woman at a recent pro-Trump rally, asking her, “If Donald Trump were to be found guilty by a jury, where do you see this going?”
A man who was also at the rally insisted he would “protect” Trump from ever spending a day in jail, no matter what he has to do to assure that.
Appearing on “Morning Joe,” Hillyard noted:
Could it be any clearer that these people are not just supporters and have instead crossed the line to become domestic terrorists?
Failed, disgraced, one-term and twice-impeached former president Donald Trump absolutely loves to brag that he has the most devoted supporters on the planet, but how does he really feel about them?
Granted, we know the Trumpers and MAGA faithful adore the Donald with a fervor that resembles some sort of religion, though it’s actually more of a cult. (Think David Koresh mixed with Jim Jones and you’ll have the Trump equivalent.)
And now we have a video that shows exactly how much Trump despises his acolytes and doesn’t actually want to be anywhere near them.
The video was shared on Twitter by Ron Filipkowski, and it clearly shows a small crowd of Trump faithful wanting to get as close as possible to the Donald.
And yet, Trump instructs his Secret Service detail to move the people, gesticulating for the security personnel to shoo away the fans so he can walk unencumbered and not have to get too close to the “little people” as he likely refers to them when they’re not around.
You can almost imagine Trump telling the Secret Service agents, Get these assholes away from me! They’re too close. They might mess up my hair or breathe on me. To hell with that!
Filipkowski later discussed the video on his podcast, MAGA Uncovered, and his comments are completely on-point.
The comments from Twitter users regarding the video were also fantastic.
If Trump is this afraid of people, just imagine when he gets to federal prison.
Supporters of disgraced one-term, twice-impeached and four-time indicted former president Donald Trump are threatening the safety of grand jurors in Fulton County, Georgia who recently handed down a massive racketeering indictment against Trump and 18 co-conspirators by spreading their identities and other personal information all over the internet.
NBC News reports one website in particular that features “violent rhetoric” has been posting grand juror information.
The grand juror’s purported addresses were spotted by Advance Democracy, Inc., a non-partisan research group founded by Daniel J. Jones, a former FBI investigator and staffer for the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.
“It’s becoming all too commonplace to see everyday citizens performing necessary functions for our democracy being targeted with violent threats by Trump-supporting extremists,” Jones said. “The lack of political leadership on the right to denounce these threats — which serve to inspire real-world political violence— is shameful.”
Advance Democracy also noted that users were posting on other social media sites the names and images of people believed to have been grand jurors. The posts asserted that the jurors had posted on social media in support of Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Raphael Warnock, D-Ga., former President Barack Obama and the Black Lives Matter movement.
The state of Georgia, it should be noted, requires that grand juror names and other information be made public in all cases, which led senior NBC legal correspondent Laura Jarrett to note:
“You know, a lot of times we never know grand jurors’ names. But Georgia law is different — it was trying to be more transparent, perhaps not appreciating that in a case like this, this is what happens. And so now that their names are out there and people are calling on doxxing their houses and harassing them, it’s certainly an unfortunate occurrence. But the court can’t do anything about that. And anyone who makes threats or does something criminal can be prosecuted for that.”
Much like their lord and savior, Trump acolytes have no respect whatsoever for law and order unless its being used to persecute anyone who dares disagree with their deranged and violent mindset.
Donald Trump is a braggart. He loves to toot his own horn and talk about all of the great things he’s accomplished as a businessman (even though he’s filed bankruptcy on multiple occasions) and all he did while he was in the White House, where he allowed the COVID pandemic to run rampant and kill hundreds of thousands of Americans while the U.S. economy tanked and unemployment skyrocketed to double digits.
Trump is also a pathological liar. He lies about everything. If he tells you the sky is blue, go outside and check. It won’t be.
How do you counter such a man? Well, according to award-winning singer and actress Barbra Streisand, you use cold hard facts to cut Donald down to size and remind him that he’s a loser and always has been.
Speaking to Variety, Streisand was asked about the four years that Trump was president, and she didn’t mince any words:
Streisand also gave her thoughts on the Capitol insurrection:
Truth is the perfect antidote to Trump’s lies, and that’s when Streisand provided exactly what we all need to forever troll the Donald and his delusional supporters:
They certainly should. Run it anytime Trump or someone who supports him is on TV and trying to spread their bullshit. Run it right under their image and keep running it as long as they’re on the air.
A black Southern Baptist minister is calling out his colleagues and accusing them of being “whores for Trump,” setting off a wave of hypocritical denials from the very people who have supported the thrice-married sexual philanderer who has expressed sexual attraction to his own daughter, Ivanka, when she was only 13.
Kevin Smith is the pastor at Family Church in Palm Beach and also the former executive director of the Baptist Convention of Maryland/Delaware, and he spoke at the first day of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), accusing some ministers of losing their minds when Barack Obama was elected president in 2012, and yet were eager to embrace the deeply-flawed Trump:
“I think some Southern Baptists lost their minds when a black man was elected president — not all, but some. I think some Southern Baptists were unloving to Black people beginning in 2012 with the killing of Trayvon Martin.
“I don’t mean agree about politics or policy … I just mean giving a darn that somebody else is hurting who is supposed to be your brother or sister in Christ, and I think some Southern Baptists just bent over and became political whores with this whole Trump stuff.”
But that was too much truth for many attendees at the SBC, with Protestia.com almost foaming at the mouth as it reacted to what Smith had said:
Not one panelist rebuked him for his insults and incendiary statements. No one corrected him for suggesting that the “some” weren’t regulated to a handful of isolated yokel hillfolk, but rather make up a large and significant minority. He had no proof that the SBC is filled with this rampant, overt racism that rears its ugly head because of a black man getting in power, and not because Obama is a Democrat with awful policies. In a mark of true leadership, all stayed quiet and let that linger for the rest of the panel.
As far as becoming political whores and bending over so the bad orange man could impregnate us with racial ideologies, this is not the winsomeness that he was insisting we emulate during his later conference talk that he gave in front of the whole convention, making him quite the hypocrite.
But the facts couldn’t be clearer, and they support what Reverend Smith said and completely demolish what Southern Baptists would have us believe. For example:
It took the SBC until 2009 to finally admit that slavery was wrong and a sin.
Southern Baptists were indeed highly critical of President Obama, even though he was a family man, had been married for decades, and helped raise two brilliant, accomplished daughters. Some of them even prayed for Obama’s death.
As we say in the South when someone is particularly upset by a criticism that cuts them to the bone, A hit dog always hollers.
