My latest update from the campaign trail.
TRUMP: Pollster John McLaughlin on The Ingraham Angle [3:23] – Only 2% of Republicans want Trump gone, but the Slime Stream Media gives their pundits an out-sized megaphone.
DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES: According to SpongeBob Squarepants LOL [2:37].
CLIMATE CHANGE TOWN HALL: Next Wednesday, ten 2020 Dem hopefuls will appear consecutively, 40 minutes each, on CNN.
For those poor souls who will be forced to endure seven hours of Democrats yammering about a non-existent crisis, Sen. Ted Cruz has come to the rescue on constitutional grounds.
“The Eighth Amendment to the Constitution provides, “Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.” — Ted Cruz, Aug 28, 2019
As for me, I’m going to wait for the Cliff Notes version.
BIDEN: Slow Joe’s brain cells seem to be dying – Recently he claimed, “Even the Heritage Foundation has pointed out that his tax cut did not work.” What the Heritage Foundation ACTUALLY pointed out was, “How the tax cuts are helping Americans in every state.”
Even worse was when he told a moving, but false story about an alleged trip into a war zone to pin a medal on a reluctant military hero. He ended the tale with, “This is the God’s truth. My word as a Biden.” Except he got almost every detail wrong. He did travel to Kunar province, but it was 2008, when he was a senator, not the VP. A service member was honored for performing the rescue he described, but Biden got the age, rank, military branch, award, place, and dates wrong. In fact, only one “fact” was even close to correct. In 2011, Vice President Biden did pin a medal on a soldier who didn’t believe he deserved the award.
At this point, not even Jill Biden can wholeheartedly endorse him. “Your candidate might be better on, I don’t know, health care, than Joe is, but you’ve got to look at who’s going to win this election, and maybe you have to swallow a little bit and say, ‘OK, I personally like so-and-so better,’ but your bottom line has to be that we have to beat Trump.”
I think she’s as delusional as Joe if she thinks he can beat Trump. Personally, I hope he drops out or loses the primaries, because if he wins the nomination, we’ll all have to watch him stumble and fumble his way through debates with The Donald. It would be far better for him to retire with some of his dignity intact.
WARREN: Civil rights activist slams Warren’s comments on racism [5:19] – This is worth listening to.
BETO: Robert Francis has styled himself a champion of the free press – “The press is not the enemy of the people but the best defense against tyranny. We need to vigorously defend the freedom of the press. It’s essential for our democracy.” Beto O’Rourke, October 30, 2018
Earlier this week, Beto had a campus police officer eject a Breitbart News reporter from a campaign event before it had even begun.
The night before, at a different Beto event, this reporter had asked a question that the champion of the free press apparently didn’t appreciate.
GILLIBRAND: Good riddance! [:36] – Legal Insurrection’s William Jacobson pulled NO punches.
“In a world of opportunistic, unprincipled, chameleon-like politicians, she stood out as among the most opportunistic, unprincipled and chameleon-like.
“Gillibrand was as privileged as they come, child of a local political dynasty who had her House and Senate seats handed to her on silver platters. Yet she seized on attacking privilege as a campaign theme.
“She ran as a conservative Democrat in her congressional district when convenient, as a liberal Democrat when more convenient for Senate and president. …
“She threw mentors like the Clintons under the bus when convenient in order to seize on the #MeToo movement to advance her presidential ambitions. …
“An extra-special good riddance.”
President Trump’s reaction was LOL.
A sad day for the Democrats, Kirsten Gillibrand has dropped out of the Presidential Primary. I’m glad they never found out that she was the one I was really afraid of! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 28, 2019
Inquiring minds are eager to learn who will pick up her 0.0% following.
OMAR: The National Legal and Policy Center has filed an ethics complaint against Omar’s campaign, alleging the unusually high “travel expenses” the campaign paid to Mynett need to be investigated.
