Ivanka Trump headed to Fresno to pump up support for Devin Nunes

Published

on

First Daughter Ivanka Trump will travel to California’s Central Valley next month to campaign for Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), ABC 30 reports.

Nunes, the controversial chair of the House Intel Committee, has been accused of carrying water for President Donald Trump.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who represents Bakersfield, will join the First Daughter in Fresno for her “Keep The House” visit.

“She’s popular, anybody from the Trump family is welcome, and we are honored and excited to see them,” Fresno County Republican Party Chair Fred Vanderhoof told ABC 30.

Central Valley Democrats view the visit as a sign that Nunes is fearing a challenge by Fresno County Deputy District Attorney Andrew Janz.

“I don’t think it’s really a surprise, particularly for Nunes, given that he’s been so loyal to the president,” the Fresno County Democratic Party’s Michael Evans noted.

“They are probably the most organized effort we have seen in that district maybe ever, and from what we understand the poll numbers look pretty good so I think Nunes has reason to be concerned,” he added.

Rep. Nunes has been raking in campaign contributions from out-of-district as GOP donors reward him for his efforts to discredit special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Trump’s 2016 campaign.

“Thank you for being here … a very courageous man — he’s courageous — Congressman Devin Nunes,” Trump said on Monday.

Not all of the congressman’s constituents agree with President Trump that Nunes is courageous for attempting to obstruct and discredit the Mueller probe.

Voter Patrick MacMillan tore into his representative in a scathing letter to the editor in the Fresno Bee.

“Devin Nunes should resign,” MacMillan argued. “President Trump’s chief errand boy should leave his post as Representative of California 22.”

Vanderhoof, the local GOP chair, expected Ivanka’s June 18th event to be held away form the public to avoid protesters.

‘He should be hospitalized’: Internet stunned after Trump goes off on completely incoherent Mt Rushmore rant

Published

on

President Donald Trump was asked on Tuesday whether his face should appear on Mount Rushmore along with other major American presidents.

“If I answer that question yes, I will end up with such bad publicity,” Trump told The Hill, before pivoting to an incoherent rant about fireworks.

The president's rambling shocked many people on Twitter:

Apart from Trump’s apparent inability to string together coherent English sentences on the fly, note also the sheer ignorance and apathy toward the idea that there might be legitimate reasons why fireworks are not detonated around the Black Hills. https://t.co/jja2XD19Mw

Trump is unhappy in reality — so he’s inviting everyone into his world of make-believe: columnist

Published

on

Confabulation is an unintentional event where someone's memory creates "fabricated, distorted, or misinterpreted memories about oneself or the world." Parataxic distortion is when a person tends to "skew perceptions" of others based on fantasy. Then there's political opportunism, a "diagnosis" that plagues politicians almost exclusively. Regardless of the cause, Washington Post syndicated columnist Michael Gerson noted President Donald Trump is not only creating his own reality, he's inviting his supporters to live inside of it.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
