Everyone on social media is mocking this Trump lawyer’s #SaysWho fiasco — and it’s a scream

Trump attorney Michael Cohen (CNN screen grab)

Trump attorney Michael Cohen — until recently best known for stating that a husband can’t rape his own wife — may have jumped to the top of the list when it comes to the what was the worst possible 30 seconds by a spokesperson for the Trump campaign this election season with his “Says who” retort to questions about polls on CNN Wednesday afternoon.

With lawyerly calm and bluntness, Donald Trump’s attorney attempted to pretend that the polls showing the campaign collapsing didn’t exist by swatting away CNN host Brianna Keilar’s questions about the numbers, repeatedly saying, “Says who?”

The childish replies — reminding many of Sarah Palin’s “All of them, Katie” response to Katie Couric on which papers she reads — naturally delighted social media quipsters who were quick to point out: “When your campaign slogan is ‘SaysWho’ your campaign is over.”

With some calling “#SaysWho”  the “greatest hashtag ever,”  the pile-on began for another Trump spokesperson failure day — another day wasted trying to get the campaign on track.

Trainer for anti-COVID lockdown group caught on camera telling supporters how to break the law

Published

on

A signature-gathering trainer for a Michigan group working to overturn Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's pandemic restrictions has been caught on camera advising the group's supporters on how to break the law.

The Detroit Free Press, which obtained a copy of the video, reports that trainer Erik Tisinger instructed supporters for Unlock Michigan in assorted nefarious practices for illegally collecting signatures.

Among other things, Tisinger told Unlock Michigan backers that it is "super easy" to give misleading answers under oath if they're compelled to testify by a court of law about their activities; that they could leave copies of their petitions with store clerks to collect signatures even though getting signatures without properly witnessing them would be illegal; and that they could trespass on private property to collect signatures even without business owners' permission.

Trump’s latest COVID-19 lie is both ‘dangerously misleading and aggressively hypocritical’: analysis

Published

on

In an analysis for the Washington Post this Tuesday, Philip Bump says that President Trump's recent downplaying of the coronavirus' effects on young people is "both dangerously misleading and aggressively hypocritical."

“You know, in some states thousands of people, nobody young — below the age of 18, like nobody — they have a strong immune system. Who knows. You look — take your hat off to the young because they have a hell of an immune system, but it affects virtually nobody," Trump said at a rally in Ohio on Monday.

Bump points out that as Trump spoke, the death toll from the virus approached 200,000 -- a boundary that Trump repeatedly insisted this spring and summer that we probably wouldn’t near. While it's true that the virus affects primarily older people, the notion that “virtually nobody” who is younger has been affected simply isn't true.

Mike Pence’s chief of staff belittles former staffer on MSNBC after she comes out against Trump

Published

Mike Pence's chief of staff, Marc Short, belittled a former staffer who has now come out against President Donald Trump for his failed response to the coronavirus pandemic.

In an NBC News interview, Olivia Troye, who advised Pence on homeland security, counterterrorism and the coronavirus, explained that the main conversation in the White House over the coronavirus was about Trump's image, and not saving Americans.

"He's not actually looking out for you," Troye said. "He's not looking out for these people. He's not looking out for them. He just wants you in that audience so he can have the camera shot of, you know, his fanfare and the people around him. But the truth is, he's putting those lives at risk.”
