‘Full Metal Jackass’: #KushnerAtWar hashtag mocks presidential son-in-law’s Iraq visit

Published

on

Twitter users were in rare form on Saturday as they launched campaigns mocking President Donald Trump’s constant habit of parting ways with the truth and the visit by Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner to Iraq.

Late this week, photos surfaced of Kushner wearing kevlar body armor over a blue blazer and khaki trousers along with his Ray Ban Wayfarer sunglasses as he met with military personnel in war-torn Iraq. The sight of the president’s wealthy son-in-law dressed like he just came from a sorority mixer sent many online jokesters into overdrive.

The photos came at the end of a rough week for Kushner’s public image. After being caught lying about his meetings with Russian bankers and other officials, getting mocked as the president’s “Secretary of Everything” and derided in an “alt-right” campaign to have Kushner fired from the White House so that Stephen K. Bannon might reign supreme in crafting the president’s policy agenda.

Trump is losing to Biden again and again in a desperate attempt to avoid being forever labeled a loser: columnist

Published

on

Writing in the Washington Post this Monday, columnist Eugene Robinson says that President Trump is suffering loss after loss to President-elect Joe Biden in his attempt to overturn the election's results. "Trump was declared the loser slightly after Election Day; he loses repeatedly and decisively in court; he loses in recounts and then demands re-recounts, which he will also lose," Robinson writes. "So much losing!"

According to Robinson, Trump's motivation may be the fact that Republicans in general did well in 2020, whereas he did not, getting "creamed" by 6 million votes.

In Trump's egocentric worldview in which absolutely everything is about oneself, the danger lies in the fact that he "sees himself as the boss and sees all those for whom he has done favors as his vassals," Robinson writes.

2020 Election

GOP lawmakers buried for meltdown over Biden appointee’s ‘mean tweets’ after years of Trump Twitter insults

Published

On Tuesday morning, the panel on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" expressed both amusement and disgust with Republican lawmakers who are claiming one of President-elect Joe Biden's nominees may have a tough time being approved because she has a history of writing "mean tweets" about their actions and policies.

As host Joe Scarborough observed, those same lawmakers just spent four years either defending -- or pretending they were unaware -- of Donald Trump's habit of slurring and attacking his opponents or detractors on Twitter.

At issue are tweets that were written by Neera Tanden who is currently president of the Center for American Progress and has been nominated by the incoming president to head up the Office of Management and Budget.

Trump demands GOP Georgia governor ‘call off’ election in new Twitter outburst

Published

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump tweeted a new demand for Gov. Brian Kemp (R-GA) to "do something" and overturn the results of the election. Specifically, Trump wants him to "check signatures and count signed envelopes" and then "call off [the] election" because "It won't be needed" — presumably meaning call off the Georgia Senate runoffs because the "real" vote count would show Republicans won outright.

Do something @BrianKempGA. You allowed your state to be scammed. We must check signatures and count signed envelopes against ballots. Then call off election. It won’t be needed. We will all WIN! https://t.co/UiJrlyBGiK
