Stop Molly-Coddling the Obese Baby in the White House

Donald Trump refuses to admit that he lost the election and Republicans are molly-coddling him like theTrumpscreaming obese baby he is. To avoid the risk of losing favor, everybody is offering him emotional rattles to play with until he stops crying and starts packing his things.

santorumRick Santorum (yes, he’s still around):  “He’s just found out that he’s probably not going to be the president of the United States anymore. This is a very emotional time, give people space to work through this.”

fleischerAri Fleischer: The “decent thing to do is let the president himself take the time he wants to absorb this.”

 

CNN: Almost everyone around the President — members of his family, senior staffers and outside advisers — believe he will accept defeat and leave the White House in January even if he never publicly acknowledges Biden’s win.

mcenanyKayleigh McEnany, On whether Trump would attend Biden’s inauguration: “President Trump believes he will be President Trump, have a second term. I think the president will attend his own inauguration

mcconnell2Mitch McConnell: “Let’s not have any lectures, no lectures, about how the president should immediately, cheerfully accept preliminary election results.”

 

Laura Ingraham: “Now, losing, especially when you believe the process wasn’t fair, it’s a gut punch. And ingrahamI’m not conceding anything tonight, by the way, but, losing, if that’s what happens, it’s awful.

 

Gutfeld

Greg Gutless Gutfeld says of Trump: “He redefined the party, because he spoke for people that both the Democrats and the Republicans forgot about. So I think, I think we’re gonna have a HELL of a lot of fun. We’re gonna have two presidents! We’re gonna have two presidents!” (Right. Outa. His. Ass.)

HannitySean Hannity: “… every American should be angry, outraged and worried and concerned about what happened in the election and the lead-up to the election.”

(Trump talking points)

CarlsonPerpetually befuddled looking Tucker Carlson claims: the “outcome of our presidential election was seized from the hands of voters”. (This is especially ridiculous considering 2020 had the highest voter turnout percentage since 1900.)

Even Trump’s national security adviser, Robert O’Brien, can’t man-up enough to face his boss head-on. As the Daily Beast reported, O’Brien has:

O'Brien…pushed national security officials to publicly embrace the absurd Trump message that the election has not been certified and that there are still legal battles playing out across the country that could turn in the president’s favor.

“If you even mention Biden’s name… that’s a no-go, you’d be fired,” one national security official said.

This molly-coddling has gone on long enough. DONALD TRUMP LOST. It doesn’t matter if he cries, sucks his thumb, stomps his feet, or stays in bed hiding under the covers all day, HE STILL LOST. Somebody in that party of impotent cowards needs to find the brass to tell him it’s over.

Election Fraud Found Right Where You’d Expect It

I'm not leavingThe Trump Toadies are out in full force for their Master claiming to have evidence of voter fraud, or just simply feeling it in their gut:

Giuliani

Rudy Giuliani held a press conference claiming he had upwards of 50 witnesses to voter fraud. The first guy he called up to the podium happened to be a convicted child sex offender. (Pardon coming his way from Trump?)

GingrichNewt Gingrich went on Fox and made ridiculous claims: “First, you go out and the Democrats steal five or six states, and that’s what Republicans believe we’re watching. We think we have evidence of a lot of it.” Called it “…a left-wing power grab financed by people like George Soros, deeply laid in at the local level.” And declared: “I think that it is a corrupt, stolen election.” Will Newt EVER go away?

HannityCollege dropout turned Trump’s personal news host, Sean Hannity actually suggested a “do-over” in Pennsylvania. Civics must have been one of his toughest classes.

DobbsThen there’s poor, pathetic Lou Dobbs, whose mind seems to be failing him: “I believe corporate left-wing media, Biden and Harris have overstepped—PA ignoring court orders, the law and they claim victory! Huge suspect vote dumps for Biden in about a half dozen states, and clearly widespread voting fraud. There is no way that Biden… could get more legal votes than the greatest President ever!” Right. Outa. His. Ass.

So What is Election Fraud?

Electoral fraud, sometimes referred to as election fraud, election manipulation, voter fraud or vote rigging, involves illegal interference with the process of an election, either by increasing the vote share of a favored candidate, depressing the vote share of rival candidates, or both.”

Republicans are in search of election fraud, pointing everywhere but to their own back yard. They know who’s committing fraud, and they’re in full support of it.

♦ The California Republican Party… admitted responsibility for placing more than 50 deceptively labeled “official” drop boxes for mail-in ballots in Los Angeles, Fresno, and Orange Counties, an action that state officials said was illegal and could lead to voter fraud. ( NY Times, Oct. 2020 )

♦ Republican Gov. Greg Abbott “…forced Travis and Harris counties — two of the state’s most important Democratic strongholds — to shutter a number of drop-off sites they had already opened… and allowed “Texas counties to provide no more than one drop-off location for voters casting absentee ballots.” (Texas Tribune, Oct.  2020) Abbott had to be sued to do the right thing.

♦ Republicans in Wisconsin urged volunteers to contact Pennsylvania Trump voters “to get them to turn in ballots days after the election.” (Daily Beast, Nov. 2020)

♦ A Republican in California set up an illegal “vote center” in front of his business. (Voice of OC, Nov. 2020)

Then there’s this little nugget involving Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel herself, from the Minnesota Reformer:

Ronna McDanielMinnesota GOP Chairperson Jennifer Carnahan told party activists on Thursday night that she would help amplify claims of ballot fraud made by President Donald Trump and national Republican leaders, even though they are baseless assertions disputed by election officials of both parties.

Carnahan said that earlier Thursday, Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel asked her and other GOP officials around the country to recruit elected Republicans to parrot the false claims of fraud.

Also, as recapped by the Las Vegas Sun this month:

In December, The Topeka Capital-Journal exposed Kansas GOP Congressman Steve Watkins for using a UPS office in that city as his home address in order to register for a 2019 municipal election.

Wisconsin Republicans prevented postponement of this year’s primary election and extension of mail-in voting despite the COVID-19 pandemic, then rigged the system so that only five of 180 polling sites were open in Milwaukee. Black and Hispanic voters were disproportionately affected, but turned out in strong numbers in defiance of the GOP.

From the AP:

wohl and burkmanJacob Wohl, 22, and Jack Burkman, 54, each face four felony counts in Detroit, including conspiring to intimidate voters in violation of election law and using a computer to commit crimes, Attorney General Dana Nessel said.

The calls falsely warned residents in majority-Black Detroit and cities in at least four other states that if they vote by mail in the Nov. 3 election they could be subjected to arrest, debt collection and forced vaccination, Nessel said.

Maybe the most important support FOR election fraud came from the Republican Senate, which refused to advance bi-partisan election security bills ahead of the 2020 elections. They argued among other things, it would be imposing on states’ rights. Even so, the party is currently trying to overturn state legislators’ voting changes made due to the pandemic.

Mitch McConnell, as CBS reported in 2019  “…objected to legislation that would have required campaigns and candidates to report offers of election-related aid from foreign governments.”

THESE are all instances of election fraud, and it is Republicans committing it.

Because Republicans know: When voters are able to vote unhindered, they turn out, and when they turn out, Republicans lose.

Kellyanne Conway Confuses Being a Bitch With Being Powerful

Kellyanne ConwayFinally, we understand how Kellyanne Conway can work for Donald Trump: She’s a raging bitch with a sense of importance as distorted as her boss’s. How they fit both of their egos in the Oval Office at the same time, is a mystery to me.

Conway recently had a minion call Caitlin Yilek, a reporter at the Washington Examiner, during which Kellyanne got on the phone and went into a shrewish rant which you can read here. It included this little gem (my emphasis):

Let me tell you something, from a powerful woman. Don’t pull the crap where you’re trying to undercut another woman based on who she’s married to. He gets his power through me, if you haven’t noticed. Not the other way around.

Ms. CharmWOW, somebody’s a bit full of herself. Most truly powerful people don’t have to point it out. The emphasized part in that quote is particularly hypocritical, considering Conway attempted to tie Bill Clinton’s scandal to Hillary in the 2016 campaign. From the Atlantic (emphasis mine):

This is the same Kellyanne Conway who played a key role in the Trump campaign’s strategy for addressing accusations of sexual misconduct against its candidate—and that was to raise as a defense the sexual misconduct of their opponent’s husband. Here, for example, is Conway speaking with Chris Matthews after Trump’s press conference with Bill Clinton accusers. Here she is again with Megyn Kelly—insisting that women who claimed to have been victimized by Bill Clinton “deserved to be heard” as part of the case against Hillary Clinton. On the attack, Conway embraces views akin to the antiquated legal doctrine of coverture, wherein a woman’s legal existence is entirely subsumed into her husband’s. On the defensive, she’s suddenly Gloria Steinem.

Conway’s disparaging of her husband isn’t exactly new however, she once told the Washington Post:

“Nobody knows who I am because of my husband, people know of my husband because of me.”

Alrighty then! Kellyanne’s husband has been in a Twitter feudgeorge conway with Donald Trump for some time now, as George Conway actually has principles. Kellyanne, having sold her soul, takes Trump’s side, claiming her husband’s tweets are:

… disrespectful, it’s a violation of basic decency, certainly, if not marital vows . . .

You know the vows: “… for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, even if you work for an ASS.

Conway originally supported Ted Cruz during which time she actually told the truth about her current boss. Courtesy of Media Matters (my emphasis):

“… he says he’s for the little guy, but he’s actually built a lot of his businesses on the backs of the little guy and he’s a lot of little guys through eminent domain, or through not paying contractors after you’ve built something. The little guys have suffered. [CNN, CNN Newsroom with Carol Costello, 2/10/16]

“… it’s one thing to hurl personal insults at somebody’s wife, and that cost Mr. Trump dearly in Wisconsin and dearly among women voters all across this country. … it is quite another to accuse Ted Cruz himself and professionals who have been at this long as you have, Ed, practically, of committing a felony and breaking a law. We could just brush it off, but it shows you the danger of just saying things that aren’t true and getting people to believe it and getting 20,000 people at a rally today to just lap it up as if it’s true. [CNN, Erin Burnett Outfront, 4/6/16]

HA HA HA HA HA…

What Kellyanne Conway doesn’t get is that her husband George will be the one that comes out of this stain on our history with his honor intact. Kellyanne is a fraud and a sellout, who tossed the sliver of integrity she may have had into the raging dumpster fire that is the Trump Administration. She will become as big a laughing stock in U.S. history as her boss. Of course, she’ll be a “powerful” laughing stock, so there’s that.

Hey George, if I may make one suggestion: Make the bitch carry her own damn coat from now on.

Black is White, Up is Down, and Patriots are “Snitches” in GOP Land

Geraldo Rivera, Peabody-Award-winning-ABC-journalist-turned-Fox-News-Hack had this to say about the Trump Whistleblower:  

“So it’s going to be the president of the United States in a conversation that was intercepted by a rotten snitch, I’d love to wap him, but that’s another story.”

(“Wap” is slang for to beat or strike, according to Mediaite.)

“Imagine this poor president, his whole tenure in office has been marked by snitches, and rats, and backstabbers, and it’s amazing how he functions at all.

“Snitches and rats”… that’s what the Right Wing’s phony patriots are calling real patriots these days. The-guy-currently-residing-in-the-white-house has allegedly attempted to blackmail a foreign country into aiding his re-election bid, by dangling previously promised American aid like a carrot, and the Rabid Right is A-OK with that. THINK ABOUT THAT.

(Not for nothin’, but I could probably squash Geraldo like a bug with minimal effort.)

Star Parker: Hug a Psycho, Stop the Next School Shooting

they said whatWhen you don’t have anything intelligent to say, the best thing to do is JUST NOT TALK. Conservatives have yet to master that type of self-control, even after decades of making fools of themselves. Today’s case in point: Star Parker, who recently weighed in on the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, as reported by Right Wing Watch:

Conservative activist Star Parker blamed the survivors of the recent mass shooting at a Florida high school for helping to bring about the massacre by not making friends with the future gunman, saying in a television interview yesterday… …we can call for gun control if we want to as a nation, we can call for more federal laws if we want to as a nation, but usually when you’re faced with tragedy, you first check yourself. We have forgotten how to just look inwardly. We’ve become such a nation of victims that we’ve forgotten to say, ‘Wait a minute, what could I have done?’

When asked what the students could have possibly done to prevent 19-YEAR-OLD DOMESTIC TERRORIST Nikolas Cruz from committing mass murder, Parker replied, I kid you not:

star_parker

Well, perhaps say ‘hello,’ perhaps say ‘I’m sorry to hear your dad died… This is not the responsibility of Washington, D.C., or the NRA. This is the responsibility of people that are closest to someone to be able to look them in the eye as an individual. … this is a very small community, someone must have saw [sic] his sadness, someone must have known his dad died. …they expelled him probably because he was acting out, and he was acting out probably because he didn’t have any friends—you know, whoever sat next to him in class, they’d better not be the ones who are protesting out there today.

WOW. That’s a new one, putting the onus for a school shooting on the students; we have plumbed the depths of callousness. Here are a few highlights from Cruz’s teenage years, courtesy of the Miami Herald; I wonder if Parker would have wanted her child to bring this kid home for dinner:

  • Nikolas hit his Mother with a vacuum cleaner hose and threw her against a wall
  • Shot his neighbor’s chickens
  • threatened to kill another boy over a girl
  • “talked about killing Mexicans and gays and chaining up and killing black people”
  • “referred to white women in interracial relationships as traitors”.
  • wrote about his birth mother: “My real mom was a Jew. I am glad I never met her.”

And nobody wanted to be this guy’s BFF? Stuck up little high school students; if only they’d said hello to him…
