Social media was very important to Donald Trump’s rise to political prominence. In 2016, Facebook did little to remove false pro-Trump articles on the site that spread like wildfire. Trump’s prolific Twitter use also continued while he was in office.
The Trump insurrection that took place couldn’t have happened without months of buildup. There were Trump’s repeated lie about the election. There was also Conservative media outlets constantly making viewers think there was something fishy.
Following the 2020 election, supporters of Donald Trump were desperate to prove that the Republican had won. And if he hadn’t won, they said, he was cheated.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton offered a $1 million reward for proof of voter fraud. Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman demanded $3 million after showing that 3 Trump supporters committed voter fraud in his state.
There is no Trumpier lawmaker in the country than Marjorie Taylor Greene. The Georgia congresswoman recently used the fact that Alabama has one of the lowest vaccine rates in the country as an applause line.
Mike Lindell feels like the last man standing pushing Donald Trump won the 2020 election conspiracy theories. His latest grift was a cyber symposium where he was going to show the evidence that Trump won the election.
Steve Bannon helped get Donald Trump voted into office. He was fired by Trump shortly after the former president entered the White House. Trump mocked him on the way out, saying that Bannon cried and pleaded to keep his job.
Americans seem to like Joe Biden more than they liked Donald Trump. First they made him the winner of the 2020 election by more than 7 million votes. And since he has been in office, the new president has regularly had much higher approval ratings than his predecessor.
Most major networks are no longer interested in having Mike Lindell appear as a guest anymore. Even Fox News, where the pillow magnate ran commercials for years has seeming cut Lindell off.
During a recent appearance on Steve Bannon’s podcast, the pillow guy ripped into his former favorite network. Lindell even agreed when Bannon suggested that Conservatives should no longer watch Fox and tune into MSNBC instead.
There isn’t much Marjorie Taylor Greene won’t believe. The nation’s first QAnon congresswoman has bought into everything from Hillary Clinton being a pedophile to Jewish space lasers.
Marjorie Taylor Greene had actually gone a few weeks without any kind of major controversy. And for the embattled Georgia congresswoman, that seemed to be too long.
During an appearance on Steve Bannon’s show on Thursday, Taylor Greene went on an extended and bigoted attack on transgender Americans warning them to stay out of prisons and rape crisis centers.
The 2020 Republican National Convention made one thing clear; the GOP has no agenda or platform. The party has move against arguing policy and all in on fighting the culture war. And one of the key aspects of their culture war is race baiting.
Marjorie Taylor Greene is about as toxic as a politician could get right now. She has already been removed from her committee assignments because of past controversial comments.
She recently doubled down on comparing mask wearing to the holocaust. That led to widespread condemnation, even from those within her own party. She, however, has not been chastened by the criticism. In fact, Taylor Greene said during a recent podcast appearance that she’d done nothing wrong.
For a number of years, Fox News has been losing sponsors left and right. Thanks to constant offensive comments from Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham and Jeanine Pirro, the network is too toxic for most companies to touch.
People from all corners of the political world came out to mourn Rush Limbaugh on Wednesday. Donald Trump broke his media silence by calling into Fox News, OAN and Newsmax.
Mike Pence remained silent after news broke that Donald Trump didn’t care about his or his family’s safety. But Pence used his Twitter account to mourn the passing of “a giant.”
Many GOP lawmakers made no secret of their support for Donald Trump. This was obvious when 147 Republican congresspeople voted to overturn November’s election results.
But some elected officials stood out for their sheer sycophancy towards Trump. And one the top of that list is Matt Gaetz. The Florida congressman may have been embarrassed when Trump called him “Rick” at a rally, but that hasn’t stopped him from doing everything to support the ex-President.
Joe Biden has made it his mission to vaccinate 100 million people during his first 100 days in office. One way he hopes to achieve that goal is by opening large scale vaccination centers throughout the country.
To the surprise of no one, Trump spent his last day in office issuing pardons to celebrities and political allies. Rappers Lil Wayne and Kodak Black both had their ongoing legal issues ended by the stroke of the president’s pen.
Over the course of a few months, the GOP has lost control of both the White House and the senate. With Democrats in complete control, there isn’t much Republican leaders can do to respond.
That doesn’t mean they aren’t going to try. Arizona, a long-time Republican stronghold, voted for Biden and has recently elected two Democratic senators. In response, the Arizona GOP censured Cindy McCain.
For months now, the Trump administration has known that it was going to have a hard time winning the election. While it was closer than Democrats hoped, Joe Biden prevailed by a significant margin.
The Republicans had multiple contingency plans in place following Biden’s win. There have been lawsuits filed in a number of states. The president even tried to convince Michigan electors to change their votes for him.
This is an election year unlike any other in United States history. There has been an unprecedented amount of early voting and mail in ballots. Over 100 million people voted before election day even got here.
