Sarah Palin invites mockery by calling Obama ‘special kind of stupid’ in latest unhinged rant

Published

on

Former vice presidential candidate and Alaska governor Sarah Palin has never been shy about her unfavorable opinions regarding President Barack Obama.

Her Friday criticism may strike some as odd, however. In a Facebook rant, Palin called the Harvard Law-educated president a “special kind of stupid” in all-capital letters. Palin was apparently upset about Obama’s efforts to enact gun regulations in the wake of the most deadly mass shooting in recent U.S. history.

“OBAMA IS A SPECIAL KIND OF STUPID,” she exploded. “Enough is enough, Mr. President. There’s no ‘due respect’ due you after pulling this stunt.”

Obama’s “stunt” was, in her mind, a call to ban high-capacity assault rifles like the one used by Florida shooter Omar Mateen. While visiting Orlando in the wake of the Pulse nightclub shooting this week, Obama spoke of the families of the victims, according to an Independent Journal article Palin linked to.

“Those who defend the easy accessibility of assault weapons, should meet these families and explain why that makes sense,” Obama said. “Why is it they think our liberty requires these repeated tragedies? That’s not the meaning of liberty.”

Palin continued her rant, which veered into an anti-Muslim tirade.

“Exploiting a sick, evil, ideological-driven attack on Americans to further your twisted anti-Second Amendment mission is disgusting,” she wrote. “Today you’re demanding an ‘explanation’ from law abiding gun owners, but not demanding the same from followers of Islam, the religion behind this terror? If the demented Orlando terrorist doesn’t represent all Islamic followers, then why do you insinuate he represents all gun owners?”

In the article Palin linked to, it’s clear the president is talking to lawmakers and lobbyists and makes no comparison between the Orlando shooter and “law-abiding gun owners.” He calls for accountability from legislators who blocked background checks after the massacre of school children at Sandy Hook.

“And why, after any shooting, do you always want to take away firearms from the innocent people who didn’t do it?” Palin rants. “Forget your asinine gun control, do your job and engage in Islamic terrorist control. Yes, it’s a special kind of stupid to demand we explain ourselves. But if you really want them, get ready for our explanations. Here’s mine.”

She then links to the Journal article, which makes no mention of Obama wanting to take guns away from “innocent” gun owners, but instead discusses his visit to Orlando where he talked about the need to enact legislation that will stop mass shootings.

Rick Wilson hilariously ridicules the ‘formal flip-flops’ and ‘dress cargo pants’ worn by Florida Trump supporters

Published

on

Republican strategist Rick Wilson mocked the attire of the Donald Trump supporters who were bused in from around Florida for his official campaign kickoff in Orlando.

Wilson, a Florida man himself, joined MSNBC's Brian Williams for post-rally analysis on "The 11th Hour."

Williams played a clip of a Trump supporter with sleeveless Trump T-shirt identifying her as a "proud member of the basket of deplorables" explaining why she'll vote to re-elect the president in 2020.

"The main reason? Because he’s one of the best presidents we’ve had for a very long time," the woman argued. "Very long time."

2020 Election

Here is the mega-list of the biggest promises Trump made — but never kept

Published

on

President Donald Trump launched his 2020 campaign Tuesday, touting the campaign slogan "Promises Made, Promises Kept." Unfortunately, for the campaign, they'll likely spend a lot of time swearing that they've been able to accomplish things that quite simply haven't happened. Promises seemed easy for Trump make, but it likely won't be easy to convince Americans he's kept them.

Here's the list of Trump's "Promises Made, Promises Broken":

1. Infrastructure

It's the one issue that Trump could actually get accomplished, but he's refusing to do it. While Americans grapple with tire-bursting potholes and crumbling bridges across the country, the president has put aside his plan to yell at Democrats. During the scheduled meeting, the president spent just three minutes reprimanding them before leaving the room and holding a press conference to tell Americans he’s on strike and nothing will move forward until investigations stop.

Trump introduced his family at his official campaign kickoff — including ‘my late brother Fred, Jr’

Published

President Donald Trump introduced a long-deceased sibling moments after officially announcing his re-election bid during a campaign rally in Orlando, Florida.

"And I am profoundly thankful to my family, I have a great family. Melania, Don, Ivanka, Eric, Tiffany, baron, Lara, Jared, Robert, Marianne, Elizabeth and my late brother, Fred, Jr." Trump said.

Fred, Jr. was Trump's older brother and died of a heart attack almost four decades ago, passing in 1981.

"In a telephone interview last week, Mr. Trump said he had learned by watching his brother how bad choices could drag down even those who seemed destined to rise," The New York Times reported in 2016. Seeing his brother suffering led him to avoid ever trying alcohol or cigarettes, he said."
