While many Republicans will likely be very supportive publicly about President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday night, many are expressing doubts behind the scenes about how effective he will be.

Washington Post reporter Robert Costa has apparently been eavesdropping on Republican Senators and their staffers at the Senate coffee shop and has found that many GOP Senators are not optimistic about Trump’s big speech this week.

“Hanging outside Cups, the Senate coffee shop, and it’s clear most Senate Rs have low expectations for tonight,” Costa reveals on Twitter. “Privately, several say he’s boxed in by his own decisions and an unwavering Pelosi. He may want to go big, one says, but he hasn’t shown an ability to do so.”

Costa also reports that many Republicans are “grumbling” about Trump’s plan to get his proposed border wall built by declaring a national emergency and diverting funding from the Pentagon to get the job done.

President Donald Trump started off Thanksgiving by whining about his election loss to Joe Biden.

Biden earned a record 80 million votes, with ballots still being counted, and the president reacted to that news Thursday by insisting his loss was impossible.

Trump will soon be a ‘dumpy 74-year-old wheeling around the golf course’ while awaiting ‘his next cheeseburger’: columnist

Daily Beast columnist Margaret Carlson on Thursday published a brutal opinion piece in which she danced on President Donald Trump's political grave and relished the thought of his fading into irrelevancy.

In her column, Carlson acknowledged many liberals' fears that Trump will never leave the national spotlight, but she said the soon-to-be-ex-president is more likely to be treated more like a washed-up celebrity that a political icon.

"To those worried we will never rid ourselves of Trump, watch as he shrinks before our very eyes in a Washington minute from leader of the free world to a broken-down real estate developer up to his ears in debt," she wrote. "On Monday, Trump was just another dumpy 74-year-old man wheeling around the golf course in a motorized cart wondering how long it would be until his next cheeseburger."

Published

The Republican chair in Cobb County, Georgia said on Thursday that he wanted to be removed from Sidney Powell's election lawsuit because he never gave his consent to be included.

Powell, who was kicked off President Donald Trump's legal team, was criticized this week after she filed a lawsuit in Georgia that was riddled with typos.

Powell had previously promised that the lawsuit would "release the Kraken" in an effort to overturn President-elect Joe Biden's win in Georgia.
