Ladies and gentlemen, behold, some s*** the President said during the previous week:
Question: if the ever-mysterious “they” really have “stollen” the past two years from Donald Trump (us), who do we thank for the alleged most successful years ever? Obama? The Deep State? Vlad? And for such an historical success, why can’t Donald Trump spell the easy words?
Yes, if there’s one thing we all know about firefighters, it’s that their union leadership sucks money unwillingly from their pockets to spend it on frivolous things like supporting politicians who agree with their right to exist. The International Association of Fire Fighters endorsed Joe Biden, and Trump complained on Twitter. One thing he didn’t do? He didn’t change his policies to be more union-friendly.
I don’t feel qualified to speak for the “radical left wing media,” but I’ll go out on a limb and guess he’s never getting this apology. What exactly did the media get wrong, anyway? The Mueller Report documents a mountain of evidence of collusion, most of which was already reported by the same media companies President Trump now wants shot out of a cannon toward the moon. Even on the infamous “pee tape,” the Mueller Report reveals that a Russian guy texted Michael Cohen in Oct. 2016 warning about the “flow of tapes from Russia.” This was about the pee tape, and Cohen – a Trump Org. executive for 12 years – thought it was plausible enough to discuss directly with Trump.
“Well we discussed it and [Vladimir Putin] actually, uh, sort of smiled when he said, uh, something to the effect that it started off as a mountain, and it ended up being a mouse. But he knew that, because he knew there was no collusion whatsoever.” 5/3/2019 at the White House.
This was a phone call. Have you ever seen someone smile through the phone? Anyway, the Mueller Report was not a “mouse” for Russia. Thirteen Russian military intelligence members cannot step foot on American soil ever again lest they be prosecuted for felonies. Russia was nailed for bold and persistent crimes against our 2016 elections. They got caught. The U.S. President is supposed to address this, instead of agreeing with the guy he didn’t collude with about how they didn’t collude.
In case you thought the President just forgot to mention Russia’s election interference on the phone, here he is making the case in writing to absolve Russia of their sins. The reason we don’t have a “good/great” relationship with Russia is because they insist on committing crimes against everyone. In response, we’ve issued sanctions. Our relationship with them depends on their behavior.
Weird that he is monitoring Twitter but not election interference. Does the first amendment guarantee freedom of speech on Twitter, anyway? No. It doesn’t. Twitter could ban someone for excessive use of caps lock if they wanted (hint, hint). The first amendment guarantees you won’t be prosecuted for speech, but even then there are exceptions for things like hate speech or inciting violence. Which, come to think of it, is probably what the President is railing against.
Ah ha! Here is the conservative outrage du jour and, fair warning, this one is dumber than most. James Woods tweeted in reference to Donald Trump, “If you try to kill the King, you best not miss” but then added “#HangThemAll,” apparently in reference to the FBI and other investigators. So, Woods was banned for suggesting federal investigators should be killed. This is what President Trump is calling a “responsible” voice before adding some conspiracy theory involving news media and Democrats, and hinting at retribution. Many other conservatives are claiming Woods was banned for quoting Ralph Waldo Emerson, ignoring the “kill them all” part. Anything to play the victim, I guess.
You are with him? The communist dictator from North Korea? The one still shooting missiles after he promised to stop? That’s not a guy I would want to be with, but ok. You do you, Mr. President.
This would be like Trump tweeting he’ll never again go to Mar-a-Lago, from Mar-a-Lago. Russia sold $11.4 billion selling military equipment to Venezuela, and just since their disputed election Russia sent two military planes into Venezuela with roughly 100 troops. Trump’s own Secretary of State just claimed Venezuela’s dictator was about to flee the country until Russia convinced him to stay. Trump chose to take the word of Putin over his own government. Again.
Kentuky! You know all those people who like President Trump because he’s “not a politician?” Here he is connecting a horse race to politics. I have no idea whether the right horse won the “Kentuky” Derby, but officials doing their best to apply the rules don’t need wrapped into politics.
