Re: Trump - post Presidency thread

Quote:
Former Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Monday said the "unemployed" former President Trump has nothing better to do than stir up trouble following his departure from Washington.

"The president abused the loyalty and the trust that voters had placed in him by perpetuating this noise [election fraud]," Boehner said, adding that it was one of "the sadder things I’ve seen in the last 40 years in politics.”
Trump’s “refusal to accept the result of the election not only cost Republicans the Senate but led to mob violence. ... It was painful to watch,” the former speaker wrote in his new book

Re: Trump - post Presidency thread

Looks like Gaetz will soon be toast
Quote:
Joel Greenberg, a former Florida tax collector indicted in the Justice Department's probe into possible sex crimes that also includes Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), is reportedly cooperating with federal authorities.
Presumably, the DOJ only wants to cooperate with Greenberg to get solid information about the allegations of Gaetz and any other associates preying on children.

Lol!

south korean president moon jae-in criticized former president donald trump’s diplomacy toward north korea and failure to achieve denuclearization on the korean peninsula during his time in office.

“he beat around the bush and failed to pull it through,” moon told the new york times in an interview published wednesday.

Anyone else think that Gaetz looks like a young-ish Jack Nicholson on a good day?

Re: Trump - post Presidency thread

Quote:
Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), the panel chair, questioned Capitol Police Inspector General Michael Bolton, who appeared before the House Administration Committee today to testify about security failures that precipitated the Jan. 6 attack.

She revealed a Capitol Police official radioed units outside of the building on the morning of Jan. 6 and told them only to scout for anti-Trump troublemakers — not pro-Trump protesters.
The latest count is 138 Capitol Police officers were injured on the day, and their chiefs were working against them.

Re: Trump - post Presidency thread

Another Republican Secretary of State (Nevada) finds no 'evidentiary support' for GOP election fraud claims.

No doubt she will be punished by the rabble.

Re: Trump - post Presidency thread

Sorry but I cannot wait until Friday
Quote:
The $billion dollar wall built under former President Trump is being scaled by people using $5 ladders, according to Texas Monthly.

The report cites U.S. Border Patrol agents, who monitor the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border that crosses into southern Texas, who stated they often find ladders left behind by undocumented migrants who use them to climb over certain portions of the border wall.

"They're defeating a wall that cost $12 million a mile in that location."
Karma or something similar?

Re: Trump - post Presidency thread

Still not paying his debts
Quote:
The city of Albuquerque has referred a $211,175.94 bill for former President Trump’s reelection campaign rally in 2019 to a professional debt collection agency.
Hope other cities do the same, there are no grounds for the taxpayers to subsidise Trump's campaigns.

MAGA Rallies Cost These 14 Cities $1.82 Million. But The Trump Campaign Isn’t Paying

Re: Trump - post Presidency thread

Trump is isolated in Florida, unable to create headlines anymore, and is struggling to stay relevant.
Quote:
Former President Trump's support in the Republican Party has fallen since he left office in January, according to a new NBC News poll.

Trump's support among the GOP took a hit, with 44 percent of Republicans saying they support the former president more than they do the Republican Party. That compares to 50 percent who said they support the party more than the former president.

That poll marks the first time since July 2019 when party supporters outnumbered Trump supporters.

Re: Trump - post Presidency thread

#fake news on both sides of the aisle.
Quote:
A reporter for the conservative New York Post has resigned.
She tweeted
"The Kamala Harris story -- an incorrect story I was ordered to write and which I failed to push back hard enough against -- was my breaking point."

The story was that copies of a book by Vice President Harris were given to immigrant children who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border
I do not remember anything so blatant from the liberal side but no doubt somebody here can put me right?

He's threatening to back Dem candidates in races against Repubs who didn't support his Stop the Steal lunacy.

I'm so disappointed. I already miss him. I hope he'll have his own platform pretty soon.
