Trump's GOP enablers know just what's coming

Opinion by Julian Zelizer, CNN Political Analyst Thu July 15, 2021

https://www.cnn.com/2021/07/15/opinions/mccarthy-and-gop-know-just-whats-coming-from-trump-zelizer/index.html

“The way that Trump acted as president fit into well-established patterns of who he was during his days as a controversial, media savvy real estate mogul in New York and as a reality show star who used his platform to, for example, question the birthplace of the nation's first African American president (a claim he later retracted.) Unlike the outsider Jimmy Carter in 1976, for instance, Trump was a well-known commodity. All someone had to do was listen to him demonstrate his values in appearances on the Howard Stern Show or read the New York Post to understand what "The Donald" was all about.

Of course, now the record is even more extensive. There is the entire history of his presidency, during which he was quite transparent about the rules of the office that he thought to be irrelevant to his personal success, and the lengths to which he was willing to go in political combat.”

 

“Yet there is enough solid reporting already, combined with the public record, to make clear his views about presidential power. If Trump decides to run again, and Republicans coalesce around him -- with unshakeable and obsequious loyalty -- as the head of their establishment, there shouldn't be room for them to claim how taken aback they are about the things he might be willing to do.

A vote for Trump is a vote for potentially unbridled presidential power. It is a conscious decision by a party that claims to champion small government to embolden a Commander-in-Chief who is eager to use that power -- without checks and without balances.”

Trump's tantrum over British Open offers another window into his soullessness

Ray Hartmann July 18, 2021

https://www.rawstory.com/trump-tantrum-british-open-turnberry/

- Donald J. Trump -

"As almost all of the great players, sportscasters, and golf aficionados know, the greatest site and course of all for The Open is Turnberry, in Scotland, It is truly a magical place, the players want to be there, and at some point in time the players will be there," Trump continued. "But this course was not chosen for The Open because they consider a wonderful person, and many-time Club Champion, named Donald J. Trump, to be too controversial—this is, of course, a false reputation caused mainly by the Fake News Media. It is a shame that the phenomenal Turnberry Golf links, the best in the World, sits empty during Open Championships, while far lesser courses are on display. Oh well, life proceeds forward! Someday The Open will be back at Turnberry,"

 

“Rick Reilly wrote the book on this subject -- Commander in Cheat: How Golf Explains Trump -- in which he brilliantly lays out how Trump's lying and cheating at golf inform who he is.

One of Reilly's prime exhibits was Trump's repeated claim that he has won 18 golf club championships, a bogus claim the author blows up in painstaking detail, one lie at a time. Turns out the actual number is zero, Trump's recent email notwithstanding.

As Reilly noted, "So here was Trump caterwauling about 18 golf championships that were faker than Cheez Whiz...”

Fox News Host Brian Kilmeade advocates doing away with the military, and the police, and fire departments. It’s not the Government’s job to protect anybody!

 

Doocy: 99% of people who are dying are unvaccinated

Kilmeade: That's their choice!

Doocy: They don't want to die. The admin and gov't says mask mandates are to protect the unvaccinated.

Kilmeade: That's not their job, it's not their job to protect anybody!

Donald Trump's latest dangerous vaccine pronouncement

Analysis by Chris Cillizza, Mon July 19, 2021

https://www.cnn.com/2021/07/19/politics/donald-trump-covid-19-vaccines/index.html

"Joe Biden kept talking about how good of a job he's doing on the distribution of the Vaccine that was developed by Operation Warp Speed or, quite simply, the Trump Administration," the 45th president said in a statement released via his Save America PAC on Sunday. "He's not doing well at all. He's way behind schedule, and people are refusing to take the Vaccine because they don't trust his Administration, they don't trust the Election results, and they certainly don't trust the Fake News, which is refusing to tell the Truth."

 

Oooookay.

       Unreal...  Donald Trump blaming Joe Biden for the low vaccination rates among Trump supporters in the U.S. is like the Joker blaming Batman for a Gotham City crime wave...  🤥

They always, ALWAYS, accuse their opponent of the very things they are doing.
