For Republican Candidates, Is Trump A Welcome Sight Or The Kiss Of Death?

trumpcoattails2.jpg


Donald Trump linked his allegedly mighty clout to two gubernatorial races. The Republican candidate lost in both.

Trump tired to drum up support for both Matt Bevin, in Kentucky, and Eddie Rispone, in Louisiana, by holding rallies the day prior to their elections. And in each case, the Democratic candidate eked out a win over his Republican rival.

Some Republican strategists are concerned Trump’s interjection in the contests hurt the Republican candidate’s chance for victory.

Dan Eberhart, a Republican donor, described the Kentucky race as a “wake-up call” for Republicans that “President Trump’s coattails may not be long enough.”

“Coming after a defeat in the Kentucky governor’s race and sizable losses in Virginia’s legislative races,” writes Melinda Deslatte of the AP, “the Louisiana result seems certain to rattle Republicans as they head into the 2020 presidential election.”

It seems that while Trump might have riled up conservative Republicans, he also powered a surge in anti-Trump turnout in both races.

Those close to Trump argue that he can’t be faulted for the Kentucky and Louisiana results. Bevin was one of the country’s least popular governors, while Rispone was a relatively unknown political newcomer who was facing a popular incumbent. While Trump can help, they contend, he can’t always be expected to pull flawed candidates over the finish line.

It should be noted Trump won Louisiana by 20 points, and Kentucky by nearly 30 points, in 2016.

The bottom line? Trump attempted to turn each contest into a referendum on himself — especially Louisiana, and ended up with a black eye in both.

Republicans have cause for concern … indeed.

Trump Pardons Charles Manson

x_docs_manson_140904.7604287705.jpg


Reprint from moronmajority.com

Just days after pardoning three service members convicted, or accused, of war crimes, Donald Trump has issued a posthumous pardon to the convicted cult leader, Charles Manson, who died in prison in 2017.

Asked why he would pardon one of the most hated criminals in American history, Trump replied, “I always thought Charlie got a bum rap. He never killed anyone. It was his followers who committed the crimes.”

Some are speculating this latest pardon is just another one of Trump’s outrageous acts meant to distract the American public from the ongoing impeachment proceedings. Others believe it is a setup to the much-anticipated pardon of his good friend and self-proclaimed “dirty trickster,” Roger Stone.

Said an anonymous source, “If you look at the piddling crimes he was convicted of … obstruction of justice, lying to Congress and witness tampering, it will make Roger’s pardon less odious in comparison.”

Fighting back against his detractors, Trump added he has every right to issue pardons.

“The Constitution, and William Barr, give me the right to do whatever I want,” declared a resolute Trump.

With No Adults To Keep Him In Check, Trump Commits Another Impeachable Offense

FQCCYHQHYQI6VO6CMQVXBVIIM4.jpg


Today’s second public impeachment hearing featured former Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, the career public servant who was unceremoniously dismissed by Donald Trump on May 20,2019.

During the hearing it seemed everyone – Democrats, Republicans and the witness herself – all agreed on one thing … the president has an absolute right to appoint ambassadors. Yet Ambassador Yovanovitch wondered why Trump and his allies had to mount a smear campaign to remove her from her post.

Sure, Trump could have simply recalled Yovanovitch from Ukraine with no reason given and that, most likely, would have been the end of that. But that would have been incompatible with the M.O. of a lifelong bully. No, Trump needed the pleasure of smearing and besmirching the reputation of a fine woman.

Yovanovitch testified she was “shocked and devasted” by Trump’s personal attacks on her and that she was “amazed” corrupt elements in Ukraine had found willing American partners to take her down.

Remaining true to form, Trump attacked her once again today … as she was testifying about his intimidation tactics!

Tweeted Trump:

Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad. She started off in Somalia, how did that go? Then fast forward to Ukraine, where the new Ukrainian President spoke unfavorably about her in my second phone call with him. It is a U.S. President’s absolute right to appoint ambassadors.

House Intelligence Committee chairman, Adam Schiff, decried Trump’s latest attack on Yovanovitch and called it “witness intimidation.” He seemed to imply it was one more nail in the impeachment coffin.

It appears without anyone around to stop his impulsive desire to attack anyone he sees as an enemy, Trump undermined his Republican defenders’ claim that Trump was simply exercising his presidential prerogative in replacing the ambassador.

But why would Trump, in the middle of an impeachment hearing, do such a stupid thing?

The simple answer is the man cannot help himself … just like the scorpion in “The Scorpion and Frog” fable.

Baby Trump Mortally Wounded (b.2018, d.2019)

Baby_Trump_Balloon_Arrest_47986-e1573386997434-1024×683.jpg


It is with great sadness that the Blimp family announces the passing of Baby Trump. The well-travelled balloon was fatally stabbed this Saturday during a rally in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, just prior to the much-anticipated Alabama-LSU football game. Baby Trump will be lovingly remembered by his supporters and handlers for a life of public service cut short by a crazed slasher who authorities have charged with first-degree criminal mischief.

Funeral services in memory of Baby Trump have yet to be announced by the grieving Blimps. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that all concerned citizens vote blue across the board in the upcoming elections.

Trump To Confine Public Appearances To MAGA Rallies

MW-HU519_trumpB_20191101125941_ZH.jpg


First it happened Tuesday during game five of the World Series in Washington D.C. Then again last night at the UFC fight at New York’s Madison Square Garden. Donald Trump has been loudly booed at two sporting events within a span of five days.

Donald Trump was even booed when he was nowhere in sight … during game seven of the World Series when a campaign ad was flashed across the jumbotron.

White House aides are concerned.

“Is any place safe these days?” asked a worried staffer.

In order to protect their boss, all future public appearances will now be limited to the friendly confines of Trump’s carefully planned and staged rallies.

Just to err on the safe side, Trump’s scheduled appearance at next week’s Proud Boys rally is being cancelled.

Warning – this could be “fake” nooze!

Trump Threatens To Veto Any Articles Of Impeachment Approved By The House

Cassidy-TrumpChaos-Final-Promo.jpg


Reprint from moronmajority.com

It is becoming ever more clear the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives will vote out articles of impeachment against Donald Trump to send to the Senate for trial.

After today’s vote in the House formalizing the procedures of the impeachment inquiry, which passed mostly along party lines (232-196), Donald Trump tweeted the following:

Today the conflicted Democrat House voted against me 232-196. This pathetic display is an unconstitutional attack against your duly elected president that will amount to nothing. I will veto any articles of impeachment that come out of the House. And Little Nancy is too dumb to do the math. She does not have the two-thirds vote to override my veto

It appears White House staff members are too intimidated by their boss to explain to him how the Constitutional impeachment process works.

Donald Trump Asks Interesting Question About Presidential Impeachment

donald-trump-7-625×302.jpg


Article courtesy of guest contributor, Alden Loveshade

Donald Trump asked on Twitter: “Are you allowed to impeach a president for gross incompetence?”

Thank you for asking, Mr. Trump.  I for one really appreciate that you are concerned about this issue. I must apologize, however, for not responding much sooner as you posted this way back on  June 4, 2014.

Fortunately, this is an excellent time for you and other Americans to see how this process works. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has initiated a formal impeachment inquiry against an American president.

But what is impeachment of the president? This is covered by Articles I and II of the U.S. Constitution. Article I states the House of Representatives can bring charges against a sitting president and the Senate has the sole power to try impeachments.

In practice, as this means overturning the “will of the people,” impeachment is reserved for very serious offenses such as Article II’s “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.” This could include something like betrayal of the oath of office, betrayal of national security, or betrayal of the integrity of national elections.

Of course it’s hard to imagine any American president betraying their oath of office, the national security, or the integrity of national elections. But it’s good to know you and I, and all Americans, can be protected from such a president!

Did you know two, or three, presidents (people disagree on this) were impeached before you posted your tweet? Andrew Johnson, who became president after Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, was the first.  The second who clearly was impeached was Bill Clinton. There’s some debate as to whether Richard Nixon was impeached as the process had begun but was not completed when he resigned. No U.S. president has been removed from office after impeachment–at the time of your tweet.

But this does not answer your question: can the president of the United States be impeached for gross incompetence?

The answer is “probably not.”

But I’m glad that you want to understand how American government works. Impeachment is specifically a trial for presidential crime(s) or misconduct, not ineptitude. That’s usually left for the voters to decide.

I appreciate that you, an American citizen, wants to learn about how American laws and the Constitution work. While I understand your desire to see that a president who’s grossly incompetent is removed from office, the initiation of impeachment proceedings usually requires more than mere ineptness … perhaps something along the line of extorting a foreign government to dig up, or manufacture, dirt on your political rival for your personal, political benefit.

Could Trump’s Health Hold The Key To Exit Strategy?

Screen-Shot-2019-10-26-at-12.46.53-PM.png


Dana Milbank, in today’s Washington Post, writes about various impeachment defenses Donald Trump could employ. One of those dodges is for Trump to simply say, “You can’t impeach me – because I quit.”

The idea of Trump resigning makes a lot of sense. But Trump would never just cut and run. That could make him look like a loser. No, what Trump needs is a good excuse so that such an exit strategy will be viewed as him having no other choice.

Trump can’t do what many politicians do when facing difficult situations. He can’t leave office (or not seek reelection) because he wants to spend more time with his family!

No. The best exit strategy for Trump is to employ the services of a medical professional.

Hear me out. What if Trump says he is going to visit Dr. Harold Bornstein, his personal doctor for over 36 years, for a complete physical examination? What if the doctor “finds” Trump’s three years in office have taken a major toll on his health … that the anxiety caused by the mean-spirited Democrats and their fake impeachment has caused Trump some serious stress-related conditions? What if the good doctor strongly advices Trump to leave office for the sake of his physical and mental wellbeing?

Trump’s children would play a big role in this scenario. Acting the concerned offspring, they could implore their ailing dad to leave office for a more peaceful and tranquil life of full-time golf.

Trump’s base would be very understanding if Trump’s doctor advised him to give up the presidency for the sake of his now shaky health.

Dr. Bornstein would be the perfect doctor to document the serious physical deterioration that has befallen Trump since taking office.

If you remember, Bornstein famously wrote, “”If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency,”

Yes, he was a perfect physical specimen when elected but the Democrats and all the other “haters” have so beaten the poor man down that he now has no choice but to heed his doctor’s advice in order to save his life.

Seems too far-fetched? Works for me!

Trump Defends “Colorado Border Wall” Comment

EHl89QLW4AAzFZo.jpeg


In a tweet today, Donald Trump defended his claim the U.S. is building a wall along Colorado’s southern border:

I was perfectly correct in talking about building a wall in Colorado. What does Colorado border? Mexico! Yes some call it New Mexico … New Mexico, Old Mexico, what’s the difference?

Trump even presented a “map” to support his claim.

Trump Threatens To Sue Founding Fathers

bet-you-didnt-know-founding-fathers.jpg


Resorting to his most tried-and-true tactic, Donald Trump has threatened to sue the framers of the United States Constitution. Citing how unfair and restrictive the document is to his presidency, Trump is seriously looking into a “very big” lawsuit against the legends of American history.

“I’m going against the whole lot of them,” said an angry Trump. “Washington, Hamilton, Franklin, Adams, Jefferson Jay and Madison.”

According to sources, Trump is upset how those American patriots and visionaries have hamstrung his presidency at almost every turn with their “phony constitution.” Asked Trump, “What good is being president if I can’t do whatever I want to do?”

“The president’s first instinct on these types of things is very often: Sue, sue, sue, and then sue some more,” said a close confidant of the Suer-in-Chief.

Trump’s personal attorneys, Jay Sekulow and Rudy Giuliani, have not informed Trump that it is not possible to bring a lawsuit against people who have been dead for over 200 years.

“I learned long ago never to question the wisdom of perhaps the most brilliant president in American history,” said Giuliani with a straight face. “The man usually gets what he wants.”

While seemingly incredible, it is being reported that Trump has consulted with the former slave and famed American intellectual, Frederick Douglass, in his pursuit of legal action against the authors of the Constitution.

“Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who’s done an amazing job and is getting recognized more and more, I notice,” said Trump.

Whether or not Trump actually follows through with his threat of legal action remains to be seen. If history is any guide, Trump’s threats to sue will amount to nothing more than a way to intimidate his enemies … dead or alive.
