Fox News’ Howard Kurtz asked Corey Lewandowski on Sunday why former President Donald Trump isn’t “pushing more forcefully” for his supporters to get the vaccine.
Kurtz told the former Trump campaign manager that he does agree “the media never really gave him full credit for creating and carrying out Operation Warp Speed.”
However, he went on to ask, “Why doesn’t he sort of help complete this achievement by pushing more forcefully for many unvaccinated Americans, many of whom support him, to go out and get the shots?”
Lewandowski started by saying, “The president has taken the shot himself. He leads by example.”
Trump got the vaccine in January. He did not announce it at the time, and the public only learned about it from reports in March.
Although most Republicans voted for the resolution, it is shocking that a crazy conspiracy theory is defended by a governing political party in America:
Seventeen Republican lawmakers declined on Friday to support a measure in the House of Representatives that condemned the pro-Trump QAnon movement as a “collection of unfounded conspiracy theories.”
The resolution, which passed nearly unanimously, urged the FBI and intelligence agencies to focus on the threats from fringe conspiracy groups, which have grown in mass as the election has neared. All told, 371 members voted in favor of the resolution—including 225 Democrats and 146 Republicans—and 18 members voted against it. Of those 18, 17 were Republican and one was an independent: Rep. Justin Amash, a libertarian from Michigan.
Hitler would be proud. And, of course, Qanon is anti-semitic:
“QAnon” is a baseless internet conspiracy theory whose followers believe that a cabal of Satan-worshipping Democrats, Hollywood celebrities and billionaires runs the world while engaging in pedophilia, human trafficking and the harvesting of a supposedly life-extending chemical from the blood of abused children. QAnon followers believe that Donald Trump is waging a secret battle against this cabal and its “deep state” collaborators to expose the malefactors and send them all to Guantánamo Bay.
There are many, many threads of the QAnon narrative, all as far-fetched and evidence-free as the rest, including subplots that focus on John F Kennedy Jr being alive (he isn’t), the Rothschild family controlling all the banks (they don’t) and children being sold through the website of the furniture retailer Wayfair (they aren’t). Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, George Soros, Bill Gates, Tom Hanks, Oprah Winfrey, Chrissy Teigen and Pope Francis are just some of the people whom QAnon followers have cast as villains in their alternative reality.
We are clearly not being told the truth by the White House:
Does this make sense?(more…)
It is what is:(more…)
Another big lie from the liar-in-chief:
President Donald Trump during Tuesday night’s debate said he secured the endorsement of the “Portland sheriff” — presumably a reference to Multnomah County Sheriff Mike Reese.
Reese shortly after tweeted that was false.
“In tonight’s presidential debate the President said the ‘Portland Sheriff’ supports him,” Reese said on Twitter. “As the Multnomah County Sheriff I have never supported Donald Trump and will never support him.”
More red meat thrown to the race base:
A federal judge in California blocked a Trump administration rule that would’ve hiked up naturalization fees by more than 80% and charged a first-time fee for asylum applicants, days before the regulation was set to take effect.
US Citizenship and Immigration Services, the agency responsible for the country’s immigration and naturalization system, updated and finalized its fee structure after a nearly nine-month review earlier this year.
The agency increased the cost of online naturalization applications from $640 to $1,160 and included a $50 fee for asylum seekers. Historically, asylum seekers around the world are not subject to application fees, according to the Migration Policy Institute.
It is why Trump has gone to the Supreme Court to avoid showing his taxes.
Many MAGA voters might not take to well that their hero billionaire depends on taxpayers to subsidize his flamboyant lifestyle:
Among the revelations from the New York Times are that President Donald Trump has dodged paying taxes for 10 out of the past 15 years. Exceptions include a few years in which the self-described billionaire paid just $750 in taxes.
“The tax data examined by The Times provides a road map of revelations, from write-offs for the cost of a criminal defense lawyer and a mansion used as a family retreat to a full accounting of the millions of dollars the president received from the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow,” the report revealed.
Once again Senate and House Democrats are not lifting a finger to stop Trump from appointing an extremist to the Bench. They failed with Kavanaugh. Now we a candidate who is an enemy of Rowe vs. Wade.
She’s the worst of the worse:(more…)
Donald Trump clearly hates the military. Duty, honor and patriotism are repulsive concepts to him. This quote is no different than his ridiculing John McCain for surrendering during the Vietnam War. And let’s not forget how every general that has served in his cabinet have denounced the liar-in-chief.
This might explain why Americans in the military support Trump’s opponent in the general election:
So it’s no surprise that someone who hates the U.S. military would be a traitor to his country:
Taylor worked for Trump.
