GOP: This is on You
Trump tweeted this in the middle of the night: “Funny how lowly rated CNN, and others, can criticize me at will, even blaming me for the current spate of Bombs and ridiculously comparing this to September 11th and the Oklahoma City bombing, yet when I criticize them they go wild and scream, ‘it’s just not Presidential!’” The stuff that keeps this fake president awake at night isn’t what kept other presidents awake at night BECAUSE THEY WERE PRESIDENTIAL.
Trump couldn’t wait a full 24 hour news cycle to blame terrorist bomb plots on the media. This is a tacit approval of death threats aimed at his political opponents.
Republicans are yelling, “But Democrats do it too!”
“Yes, Democratic leaders and CNN reporters endured an attempted bombing, but imagine how much worse it would have been if they had been chased out of an Olive Garden before they got their breadsticks” — Jess Dweck
“Fake sexual assault victims. Fake refugees. Now fake mail bombs. We are all learning how the media left are masters of distortion, deflection & deception” — Dinesh D’Souza, the Fox News talking head who pleaded guilty to campaign finance crime who got pardoned by Trump.
Amidst all of the news coverage about the MAGABomber, we learned that the Russians and Chinese have been spying on Trump’s phone conversations because he refuses to stop using his personal cell phone for presidential business. He tweeted, “The New York Times has a new Fake Story that now the Russians and Chinese (glad they finally added China) are listening to all of my calls on cellphones. Except that I rarely use a cellphone, & when I do it’s government authorized. I like Hard Lines. Just more made up Fake News!” So now what? Is he claiming to be the first to tweet from a landline?
While the news was covering foiled assassination attempts and the president being spied on, Trump and the Republicans managed to squeeze in a headline or two about the caravan that’s on its way to destroy America.
Trump tweeted yesterday: “To those in the Caravan, turnaround, we are not letting people into the United States illegally. Go back to your Country and if you want, apply for citizenship like millions of others are doing!”
They are going about this legally — it’s called asylum.
Trump sent 800 troops to the border now to confront the caravan when it arrives in a couple of months. He claims there are middle eastern terrorists among them even though he doesn’t have a shred of proof. Before they get to the border, Fox News will cover the troops at the border before the election so they can scare the crap out of their viewers so they’ll be sure to vote Republican.
Kirstjen Nielsen did an interview with Fox News in front of a wall at the border. She and the interviewer were both wearing matching Reno 911 cop sunglasses, looking tough on crime for added emphasis so she could let Fox News viewers that she’s got it all under control before the caravan storms our borders. They’re not welcome here and she will not tolerate any violence against her brave men and women by Mexicans. They’re not Mexican. They’re Honduran and Guatemalan. But to Fox News viewers, anybody with dark skin who speaks Spanish is Mexican and Fox News viewers hate Mexicans. The Mexicans are coming! The Mexicans are coming! The Fox News interviewer asked if troops will shoot the Mexicans if they tried to cross the border. Kirstjen said they’ll shoot only if they are shot at. Fox News viewers said, “Oh, thank GOD!”
All of this breaking news is making it hard for the Republicans to get their message out that they’re the new Democrats when it comes to health care. They’re all for protecting people with pre-existing conditions. In fact, they invented it! Every single one of them is claiming that they are on the right side of health care reform and always have been. Not even close. The Republicans voted to repeal Obamacare 70 times. They’re lying about this now because they lie about everything.
Republican hypocrite fun fact: Martha McSally wants to be the next US Senator of Arizona so bad that she’s making TV commercials bragging about her record of being the champion of pre-existing conditions. She voted to repeal Obamacare 50 times as a congresswoman. In fact, she’s the one who yelled out “LET’S GET THIS FUCKING DONE!” before one of the votes. When confronted about this by a reporter, Martha got irritated and said she’d rather talk about the caravan.
US Air Force Retired Lieutenant General and former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, and sitting US Senator, Cory Booker, have been targeted for political assassination this morning. They’re the latest to be sent suspicious packages.
This is on the Republican Party. Trump, the bomb threats, demonizing the press, hate, threats, mobs. The Republicans have been working on the MAGAs for decades, manipulating them and scaring them into voting Republican, and now the time has finally come where people are getting hurt and killed.
This is all on the Republicans.
