‘Toddler’ Trump drowned in ridicule after he angrily whines about ‘fake’ polls showing he’d lose

Published

on

President Donald Trump dismissed polls showing him losing to various Democratic candidates as “fake” — and he was met with ridicule.

New polling by Quinnipiac University shows Trump losing head-to-head matchups with six Democratic hopefuls, just days after a New York Times report found Trump had instructed aides to lie about his poor performance in internal polls.

Trump took those efforts to mislead to a new level by writing off those polls as a media conspiracy to undermine his re-election campaign.

“The Fake News has never been more dishonest than it is today,” Trump tweeted. “Thank goodness we can fight back on Social Media. Their new weapon of choice is Fake Polling, sometimes referred to as Suppression Polls (they suppress the numbers). Had it in 2016, but this is worse.”

“The Fake (Corrupt) News Media said they had a leak into polling done by my campaign which, by the way and despite the phony and never ending Witch Hunt, are the best numbers WE have ever had,” he added. “They reported Fake numbers that they made up & don’t even exist. WE WILL WIN AGAIN!”

Other Twitter users weren’t persuaded.

New report exposes ‘sordid details’ of Jeffrey Epstein’s outrageous jail sentence as alleged in new lawsuit

Published

on

Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking of young women continued even as he was supposed to be in jail in 2008, according to a new lawsuit detailed in the Miami Herald.

The financier and sex offender pleaded guilty to state charges of prostitution in 2008, mysteriously escaping much more severe federal sex trafficking charges via a non-prosecution agreement that is now under review. Epstein’s treatment by prosecutors has come under close scrutiny because of many such bizarre decisions, which nearly all observers agree constituted a “sweetheart deal” given the evidence against him.

Gov. Matt Bevin says Kentucky teachers only protested him so they wouldn’t have to go to work

Published

on

In a local radio interview on Tuesday, Gov. Matt Bevin (R-KY) appeared to suggest that teachers in his state only launched protests against his administration so that they could get time off from work.

"The same bill came forward again this summer when nobody was in school, and nobody showed up," Bevin told right-wing talk radio host Brian Thomas. "When it's vacation time, people are a little less worked up it seems."

Teachers across Kentucky staged so-called "sickouts" in response to a Bevin-backed plan in the state legislature that would massively scale back teacher pensions — cuts that were ultimately ruled illegal by the Kentucky Supreme Court (in fact, the bill that was introduced this summer was not actually "the same bill," and was a much more modest change to state pensions).
