Trumpsters lose it after Chief Justice John Roberts smacks down the president’s partisanship

Published

Right-wingers are melting down on Twitter over the Bush-appointed chief justice of the Supreme Court rebuking Donald Trump’s partisanship.

Earlier in the day, Chief Justice John Roberts slammed Trump for smearing a federal judge from the 9th Circuit as an “Obama judge.”

“We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges,” Roberts said in a rare statement. “What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do equal right to those appearing before them.”

“That independent judiciary is something we should all be thankful for,” the chief justice added.

While some lauded the conservative justice for the unusual move, right-wingers weren’t so happy.

“THANKS ROBERTS – NEXT THING YOU KNOW, YOU’LL BE REWRITING OBAMACARE TO MAKE IT LEGAL,” radio host Bill Mitchell, a pundit who recently mused whether “antifa” had anything to do with the California wildfires, wrote on Twitter.

Right-wing podcaster Chuck Woolery also used all caps and a Breitbart link to spell out his displeasure at Roberts’ move.

“OH, AND THANK YOU FOR OBAMACARE,” Woolery tweeted.

Earlier in the day, it was reported that Larry Kramer, a famed writer and influential AIDS activist, had died at age 84. PBS host Judy Woodroof noted that Fauci and Kramer had been friends.

"In the beginning of the AIDS outbreak in the 1980s, the two of you had a pretty contentious relationship," Woodroof said. "But that changed over time."

REVEALED: An Obama-era plan to protect medical workers in a pandemic was thwarted under Trump

Published

on

President Donald Trump has repeatedly claimed that his Democratic predecessor in the White House, Barack Obama, left him ill-prepared to handle a major health crisis when, in fact, Obama’s administration left behind a comprehensive pandemic game plan that included a 69-page playbook. But Trump’s administration abandoned those Obama-era recommendations. On top of that, National Public Radio’s Brian Mann is reporting that Trump’s administration, in 2017, “stopped work on new federal regulations that would have forced the health care industry to prepare for an airborne infectious disease pandemic such as COVID-19.”

Here’s the real reason Trump and the GOP don’t want mail-in voting

Published

Trump and Republicans don’t want mail-in voting this November because it blows up a couple of their most effective voter suppression schemes.

In presidential elections dating back to 2000, there’s been noticeable media coverage of long lines in majority-black precincts; commentators sometimes wonder out loud why people would have to wait in line 8 hours to vote in, for example, inner city Ohio in 2004 or Milwaukee in the 2020 primaries.
