‘He Has Been Building the Wall This Whole Time’
Fox News commentator Tomi Lahren is attacking President Donald Trump, and Trump supporters are attacking Tomi Lahren. While the karma is great, what’s really funny is what the Trump supporters are saying to support their president.
Lahren has an opinion on just about everything, and shares these nuggets in her “Final Thoughts” hot take videos, while occasionally appearing on “Fox & Friends” to promote her unique musings.
Her stock in trade is attacking liberals and Democrats while maintaining an elevated degree of racism that keeps her popular among the Fox News crowd.
But on Wednesday morning Lahen deviated from the formula, and channeled Ann Coulter by attacking the President over a bipartisan deal to avoid what would be Trump’s fifth government shutdown.
The deal reportedly offers no money for any new wall building, but includes $1.4 billion for 55 miles of rural area fencing. Trump had demanded $5.7 billion to build 200 miles of new, concrete wall. He got zero.
Lahen predicted that Trump will lose re-election in 2020 if he signs the deal, which he indicated Wednesday morning he will.
I’m not gonna sugar coat it, if @realDonaldTrump takes this sham border deal from the Democrats, he loses in 2020 and we ALL lose for years to come.
I’ll discuss on @foxandfriends in 10 mins!

Trump supporters went ballistic, tossing embarrassingly false claims at her, like, “he is building the wall & has been since day one,” “Year one he had his own a party against him,” “He works harder than any other president,” and “He’s a master at negotiation.”
Take a look and laugh – or cry – at just how deeply Trump supporters have bought into his lies:
Ye of little faith! The Wall is being built as we speak 🇺🇸MAGA🇺🇸

Tomi, I get your spiel, and I’m down with it, but realize .@realDonaldTrump is NOT a politician. Listen to what he says, that he is building the wall & has been since day one. He’s about getting things DONE, one way or the other. Support him, trust him. #MAGA2020 #Grit #Hooah! 🇺🇸

There is a plan up his sleeve. He did what he had to do. Year one he had his own a party against him. He has fought every day in the White House for us. He works harder than any other president against horrible, disgusting opposition.He will build a wall &defund PP

Considering the obstacles @POTUS has had to endure since day one I'll support him a second term no matter what. And if you don't see his strategy than sit down and learn something.
Florida sheriff ordered his officers to not wear face masks — and then banned the safety gear
A Florida sheriff ordered his officers to not wear face masks -- and banned the safety gear from his office -- even as the southern US state has hit record daily coronavirus death tolls.
Sheriff Billy Woods, of central Florida's Marion County, emailed deputies Tuesday to tell them of the new mask prohibition, according to local paper the Ocala Star Banner, citing the message.
"My order will stand as is when you are on-duty/working as my employee and representing my Office – masks will not be worn," the email read.
The sheriff allowed for certain exceptions, including for officers who work in prisons, schools, hospitals or with people suspected of being infected with the virus.
Fast-moving brush fire north of Los Angeles has prompted mandatory evacuation orders for some 500 homes
A fast-moving brush fire north of Los Angeles prompted mandatory evacuation orders for some 500 homes on Wednesday as firefighters battled the flames that had burned 10,000 acres by early evening, authorities said.
The Lake Fire erupted at around 3:30 pm (2230 GMT) near Lake Hughes, about a 90-minute drive from Los Angeles.
Rapidly-spreading flames had scorched some 10,000 acres (4,050 hectares) within a little more than three hours, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
"Multiple agencies are battling a brush fire near the Lake Hughes area in the Angeles National Forest," the department said in a tweet.
‘Trump should know how to be in public with a woman who publicly humiliated him’: Trevor Noah jokes
"The Daily Show's" Trevor Noah couldn't help but notice President Donald Trump's confusion during the Q&A of his daily coronavirus press briefing. Trump was asked about Vice President Joe Biden's pick as Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his running mate. In his attacks on Harris, Trump seemed to be spending more time defending Biden than he did attacking him.
Trump claimed the reason he was surprised Biden picked Harris is that she was "very very nasty to Joe Biden," he said she was "probably nastier even than Pocahontas," his nickname for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). "She was very disrespectful to Joe Biden."
