TRUMP'S COMMENTS REVIEWED
Sometimes I feel as if it’s become my job by default to explain jokes to liberals who have completely lost their senses of humor since Trump’s election.
Among a number of things in that Axios interview that were taken out of context was President Trump’s comment about Ghislaine Maxwell, wealthy pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s former lover and alleged fellow human trafficker who was recently placed in a New York jail cell. Trump said he knew nothing about the case personally, but “I wish her well, whatever it is.”
The media leaped on that as “Trump’s shocking support for Ghislaine Maxwell.” Those of us not suffering from TDS took it as a sarcastic joke, a reference to the skepticism about Epstein “committing suicide” once he was locked away in a New York jail cell. We assumed he meant, “I wish her well in staying alive.” But liberals are no longer able to write or recognize a joke, so they took it literally (as when they thought Trump was literally inviting Russians to hack into Hillary’s email devices that had already been taken offline, Bleachbitted and smashed with hammers.) As Peter Theil observed, Trump supporters take him seriously but not literally, while the media take him literally, but not seriously.
Maybe if they ever looked at a conservative news or commentary site, they would know that one of the top-selling T-shirts for several weeks now has been one that reads, “Ghislaine Maxwell didn’t commit suicide.”
And FYI to the media: Trump was on record years ago as slamming Epstein as a creep, while it was heroes of yours like Bill Clinton who were actually hanging out with him. I haven’t talked much about this because it’s so unsavory that I’d like to see more hard evidence and witness testimony first. But most media outlets don’t have such high standards, yet they’ve been so silent about the recently released documents connecting Epstein to Clinton that even Bill Maher is calling them out.
POLITICAL ADVANTAGE OVER PROTECTING LIFE?
Doctors are now speaking up to report their own successes in treating COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus with hydroxychloroquine, zinc and the antibiotic Zithromax, and more international studies are indicating that it is effective. So is the rising evidence in its favor actually causing Trump haters to ratchet up their opposition to it, with social media sites banning even actual doctors relating their personal findings as “dangerous misinformation”? Would someone actually hate Trump so much that they would discourage the use of a drug that might save lives if admitting that it worked might make Trump look correct?
Matt Margolis at PJ Media makes that case.
It is hard to believe that anyone would be so twisted as to prioritize political advantage over protecting human life. But then, we just had the mayor of Portland lecture rioters not to try to murder people by burning down a building with human beings locked inside because Trump might use the footage in his campaign commercials.
I wonder, has anyone done a test to see if hydroxychloroquine might be effective in treating Trump Derangement Syndrome?
STATE OF THE "NEWS" MEDIA, 2020
Trump says MS-13 gang members are rapists and murderers. Media: “Trump says all Mexicans are rapists and murderers! He’s a RACIST!”
Trump says there are very fine people on both sides of the issue of removing Confederate monuments. Media: “Trump says some white nationalists are very fine people! He’s a RACIST!”
Joe Biden asks a black interviewer if he’s a junkie and suggests that blacks have a monolithic culture and are basically all alike. Media: “…”
OPRAH'S RACIST RANT
Attention, white people who are working two or three jobs to make ends meet, living in a mobile home, driving a beat-up old pickup, or struggling on a fixed income: powerful billionaire and primo American success story Oprah Winfrey would like you to admit your “white privilege.” Just don’t come to her mansion to do it in person. You won’t make it past the guard gate.
I’ve been writing about how large companies such as Trader Joe’s, Ford and the Wall Street Journal have started to get fed up with the demands of the leftist grievance mob and stand up to them. Even some liberal politicians who are alarmed at how long the rioting has gone on are starting to say enough is enough. And the left’s in-your-face hectoring is also starting to grate on average Americans, who have had just about enough of holding their tongues and taking it. The wokesters' sheer obnoxiousness has squandered any sympathy most people might have initially had for their views.
This video illustrates what happened when a foul-mouthed, hectoring harpy threw hot coffee in a man’s face because he wasn’t wearing a mask – outdoors – while eating a burrito.
After the incident, the man summed up what must be going through a rising number of Americans’ minds right now: “…Everybody is scared of ‘Ken and Karen,’ and I’m not. I don’t care anymore.” Never has the phrase, “You brought this on yourself” been more applicable.
FROM OUR "PROBLEMS WITH MAIL-IN VOTING ARE A MYTH" FILE
A new report by New York’s Board of Elections shows that in the state’s Democratic primary, out of 403,103 mail-in ballots cast in New York City, 84,108 ballots (21% of the total) were not counted or were invalidated for defects such as arriving late or lacking a postmark or voter signature. This is the system that Democrats want to impose in every race nationwide.
Also of interest: New York’s primary was June 23rd, and this is how long it’s taken to find this out. These sorts of delays have given rise to a conspiracy theory that the Democrats want mail-in vote chaos to drag out the Presidential vote count because if there’s no clear winner by January 20th (steel yourself), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would become President. That might sound crazy, but it’s actually been floated by Harvard Professor and MSNBC commentator Laurence Tribe.
Note: Yes, I realize that none of the phrases “Harvard professor,” “MSNBC commentator” or “Laurence Tribe” rule out something being crazy.
See Nancy Pelosi get so angry and discombobulated that she accused Judy Woodruff of being a “GOP advocate” just because the PBS reporter asked her a question that wasn’t a complete puffball. I wonder how Nancy would hold up if she ever had to face the regular barrage of hostile accusations that President Trump gets from the roomful of actual Democratic Party advocates known as the White House Press Corps.
