Opinion: COVID Relief Fiasco Reveals McConnellism Rivals Trumpism In Disregard for Americans’ Welfare

Trump - McConnell

Americans have been living under a political system arguably best characterized as a tyranny of the minority for some time.  Certainly, for the past four years the nation has suffered the insidious rule of a president who lost the popular vote by 3 million tallies in the 2016 election, just as the nation was hornswoggled into a devastatingly costly war—in human, financial, and geopolitical terms—and financial disaster from 2000 to 2008 by the Bush-Cheney regime, which also sneaked into office having lost the popular vote.  And even when the majority vote was able to elect Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, it had to do so in the context of still-existent gerrymandered districting that meant in many cases, in down-ballot races, Republican candidates could win local elections in states that still featured an overwhelming Democratic electorate. read more

Kayleigh McEnany gives Trump credit for Joe Biden denying Tara Reade allegation

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany lashed out at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi earlier this morning, saying she is actually the one who “needs” the 25th Amendment following a minor gaffe Pelosi made during a news show.

Brian Kilmeade Says Pelosi Wants to “Create Chaos” by Invoking 25th Amendment

“Fox and Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade says House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) wants to “create chaos” by invoking the 25th Amendment to assess President Donald Trump’s fitness for office.

Yesterday, Pelosi and Representative Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) announced they would introduce legislation to establish a 25th Amendment commission with the express purpose of assessing Trump’s mental and physical capacity in the wake of his behavior after testing positive for COVID-19.

This did not sit well with Kilmeade who said chaos is what Pelosi “always accuses the president of doing.”

“You create chaos and people are going to say, ‘Well, I just need a change, I’m just going to vote for the other guy and the other party.’ But look who’s creating the chaos and look who’s refusing to answer questions about their agenda should they get the keys to the country,” Kilmeade said. “And it’s one party, and they’re always wearing masks because they’re responsible and they believe the science, it’s Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.”

Rep. Kevin McCarthy: I’ll Force Vote to Remove Pelosi If She Tries to Impeach Trump Again

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has threatened to force a vote to remove House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) if she has the Democrat-controlled house file articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump again. Pelosi had earlier said Democrats have “options” to delay the president from nominating someone to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died last week.

“If [Pelosi] revamps a baseless impeachment, we will work to remove her from the speakership,” McCarthy said during an appearance on Fox and Friends.

“We could make a motion on the floor to have another vote on Speaker, of whether she stays,” he added. “That would put a lot of people in a tough situation. Because, if she is going after the president for impeachment because he is upholding his constitutional duty, that would be very interesting for any member to stand with her on that decision…that would be shocking to me, but it wouldn’t be farfetched for the Speaker to try.”

Trump Accuses Jim Cramer of “Pandering” Following Apology over “Crazy Nancy” Remark

Donald Trump has accused Jim Cramer of pandering after the CNBC broadcaster apologized for calling Nancy Pelosi “Crazy Nancy” during a live interview with her.

Cramer had originally defended his comments as a criticism of the President but later issued an apology. Trump weighed in on Wednesday, predictably saying that Cramer was right the first time.

Jim, you didn’t make a mistake. It’s true, and that’s why you said it. No pandering!” Trump tweeted.

Cramer made the apology on Tuesday following controversy over his use of the nickname Trump has frequently deployed. He stressed he was trying to make a point about the discourse in Washington, D.C.

I made a very stupid comment,” Cramer said.

“It was a tongue-in-cheek attempt to make a point about the harsh tone about the negotiations in Washington but it fell completely flat and I apologize for that.”

“What deal can we have, Crazy Nancy?” Cramer had said while interviewing her about ongoing negotiations on a Coronavirus stimulus package. He
