Republicans are on a losing streak because of Trump: Conservative columnist

Published

on

On Thursday, conservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin explained that Republicans should be tired of losing by now because of President Donald Trump.

Since Trump became president the GOP has faced defeat after defeat. She explained that they lost The House majority and failed to bring Trump’s border wall promise to life.

“They lost public support on the tax cut,” Rubin wrote. “They have lost the climate-change argument with the public. They lost the effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act. So much losing.”

“He talks and tweets and blames others. However, he is president, and he has shown time and again that the job is beyond him,” she added.

She explained that all of Trump’s failures might cost him his reelection bid in 2020. It was reported that Trump is betting on 2020 solely to avoid going to jail over all of his legal scandals and corruption.

Rubin said, “This is a serious problem for a president who thinks he needs to be reelected to avoid indictment. (Even — God forbid — after a second term, state indictments can proceed and not all statutes of limitations on federal crimes will have run out. He can run, but he cannot permanently hide from the law.)”

She said the only good thing that has happened under Trump is the state of the economy is still fair.

“The sole reason that Trump is hanging in there — other than Fox News and the rest of the right-wing propaganda machine — is the economy. If that slows this year or next, which many economists expect, there’s no telling how quickly big donors will abandon him,” she said.

Trump’s losing streak is evident and his 2020 opponents will use it their advantage.

“Trump’s 2020 opponents have a more devastating critique: He’s a loser, temperamentally and intellectually unfit from the start and incapable of learning on the job. It’s a powerful political argument against someone who depends on the image of toughness, and it has the benefit of being true,” she wrote.

Jimmy Carter hospitalized due to complications from his recent falls: report

Published

on

On Monday evening, former President Jimmy Carter was admitted to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.

Carter, aged 95, is reportedly being treated for pressure on his brain due to bleeding — a complication from recent falls. His condition is currently unknown.

Carter, who served as president from 1977 to 1981, has placed a strong emphasis on humanitarian work in his years after leaving office, in many cases going to physically build homes with Habitat for Humanity despite his advanced age. He has suffered numerous health issues in later years, including surviving cancer, and often allows himself little time for recovery from these episodes before returning to his postpresidency works.

National Enquirer publisher planned to funnel $1 million to R. Kelly — through a shell company: report

Published

on

On Monday, The Daily Beast reported that American Media Inc., the publisher of the National Enquirer, proposed a covert scheme to pay jailed R&B singer R. Kelly $1 million through a shell company, in return for his participation in a televised documentary series that AMI executive Dylan Howard wanted to produce and pitch to a network.

Leaked audio recordings reveal Howard proposed that secret licensing agreements through this shell company could conceal the payments, so that AMI could market the series as "independent" from Kelly and avoid any potential public relations fallout from paying him.

‘Your hair is fabricated’: Trump blasted as a ‘dictator desperate to hold onto power’ after his ‘admission of guilt’ tweet

Published

on

President Donald Trump was clearly fixated on the impeachment inquiry, with his official Twitter account blasting out a dozen different attacks into his administration's solicitation of foreign election interference.

Trump started his morning on Twitter with a traditional Veterans' Day welcome but quickly began tweeting about the vaping industry, the election loss by Gov. Matt Bevin (R-KY), one day after a Trump rally and who won the Schwab Cup golf tournament.

But impeachment was clearly his obsession on Monday.

Shifty Adam Schiff will only release doctored transcripts. We haven’t even seen the documents and are restricted from (get this) having a lawyer. Republicans should put out their own transcripts! Schiff must testify as to why he MADE UP a statement from me, and read it to all!
