Ladies and gentlemen, behold, some s*** the president said during the previous week:
My favorite thing is when he just tells us all who our favorite president is. Also, no one accused him of having mini-strokes! This blustery denial of something no one suggested is quite suspicious.
Again with the mini-strokes. CNN’s tweet does not mention mini-strokes. Also, the official White House line on that November 2019 trip was that the President “began” his yearly physical – not completed it. They called it “Part One.”
He didn’t have a stroke. Nope. Definitely not. Not even a little one.
“[G]o and vote, and then, if your mail-in ballot arrives after you vote, which it shouldn’t but possibly it could perhaps, that ballot will not be used…So send it in. And then see and then vote and let’s see what happens.”9/4/2020 North Carolina telerally.
I’ll tell you what happens: you become a felon. For the love of Christmas, don’t listen to President Drunk Uncle on this. Don’t vote twice.
This article in The Atlantic dropped like a bomb onto the Trump campaign: Trump: Americans Who Died in War Are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers.’ It’s anonymously sourced, but seems easy to believe given Trump’s life work of disrespecting veterans such as John McCain, “the generals,” and Gold Star father Khizr Khan.
“It could have been – you know a lot times their sources aren’t sources, they don’t exist – and sometimes the sources are just people that are disgruntled, former, so-called employees.”9/4/2020 at the White House.
Ah ha. So, anonymous sources are either fake, or real. Glad to have that narrowed down – but wait! Even if they’re real people, they may only have been “so-called employees,” i.e., fake employees. It’s a hall of mirrors.
“I know John Kelly. He was with me. Didn’t do a good job. He had no temperament…He was not able to function. He was sort of a tough guy…[but] he was unable to function…and now he goes out and badmouths. Now, there are people that are jealous, there are people that are upset they’re not here anymore.”9/4/2020 at the White House.
John Kelly is a former four star general and Trump Administration member during the time referenced by The Atlantic’s article. The article’s main point was that our president showed a chronic disrespect for the troops. Here, Trump goes out of his way to confirm the article’s main point while arguing its sources are both “made up” and John Kelly.
“I don’t know that it was [John Kelly]. I haven’t seen that. I mean, I see ‘anonymous,’ but it could have been a guy like a John Kelly, because he was…unable to handle the pressure of this job.”9/4/2020 at the White House.
Our president keeps telling on himself. Again, no one said John Kelly was a source for The Atlantic’s story. By the way, a suggested question for the Trump supporters in your life: is it more likely that the president’s former chief of staff, national security adviser, Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense, wife, sister, niece, and others are all liars? Or is it more likely just one person?
Uh oh! When The Atlantic reports that Donald Trump called dead American troops “losers” and “suckers” for having died in combat, that’s bad. When AP, the Washington Post, and Fox News all confirm the story, that’s a huge problem. The solution here seems to be, “embrace cancel culture and throw this reporter and her entire network overboard” to save his own skin. We’ll see if it works.
One day after “Fox News is gone,” they’re back! Sure, they just told the world that Trump spit on the graves of dead American combat veterans, but most of the time they praise him! He just can’t quit the cycle of saying something crazy, hearing them cheer him, then cheering them for cheering him. It’s the Circle of Trump.
That’s our report for this week. Be sure to check out the links for more info on any particular topic and, as always, thanks for reading.
