‘No one really likes him but we’re stuck with him’: GOP aides gripe about Giuliani as he becomes a national punchline

Published

on

In a look at how former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign is weaponizing former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani against President Donald Trump, GOP operatives lamented the fact that they are saddled with him as the face of the president’s defense.

According to the Politico report, “With Rudy Giuliani emerging as the face of Donald Trump’s star-crossed operation to dig up dirt on Biden in Ukraine, the former vice president is using the former New York City mayor-turned-presidential-fixer in a different capacity — as a foil in his own effort to fight back against Trump’s relentless attacks,” adding, “The Ukraine scheme has backfired so badly that the president now faces impeachment and two Giuliani associates were federally indicted this week in an illegal campaign finance scheme connected to the plan.”

Biden deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield admitted that they were turning Trump’s bumbling attorney into a poster boy for the president’s re-election campaign.

“Rudy is in so many ways a perfect messenger for exactly what this administration stands for, and that’s why voters reject it,” she stated before saying, “Giuliani’s cronies — who Trump pretends not to know even though he’s pictured with them multiple times giving the thumbs up, no less — have been arrested trying to flee the country, one day before Rudy was scheduled to join them in Vienna and hours after dining with him at the Trump Hotel.”

Even before the Biden campaign trained their guns on Giuliani, he was already becoming a drag on the White House with aides wishing he would just go away.

“The president would be better served if Rudy wasn’t on television,” a top Trump adviser told Politico. “The president would be better off if Rudy was not the face of this. No one really likes him but somehow we’re stuck with him.”

GOP operative Rick Wilson — no fan of Trump –agreed even though he has worked with the former New York City mayor in the past.

“Rudy has become the Wile E. Coyote of this scandal,” explained Wilson. “Rudy’s out there running off of cliffs, smacking into road signs and watching his own schemes just blow up on him to defend Trump. And if defending Trump is like catching the Road Runner, Giuliani is going to do that everyday and fail, no matter how absurd the situation is that he finds himself in.”

‘Money hungry mannequin’ Ivanka Trump buried for her taxpayer-funded ‘field trip’ to India with her dad

Published

on

Ivanka Trump was hammered on Twitter for posting pictures of her trip to India where she praised the "grandeur" of the Taj Mahal -- with herself featured front and center before it.

Donald Trump's daughter, a senior White House adviser, has taken to using her Twitter feed to promote herself (usually via photos or video clips) as she travels the world, presumably representing the United States. Monday morning's tweet was no exception, with the two pictures accompanied by, "The grandeur and beauty of the Taj Mahal is awe inspiring!" followed by emojis of the American flag and India's flag.

Bill Barr’s former classmates: AG has long been motivated by ruthless ambition and ‘fascist’ instincts

Published

on

Attorney General William Barr recently expressed frustration over President Donald Trump’s interference in the criminal case of veteran GOP operative Roger Stone, who on February 20, was sentenced to three years and four months in federal prison on charges ranging from jury tampering to lying to Congress. But journalist Adrian Feinberg, in an article for the Independent, expresses great skepticism over the possibility that any real tension is developing between Trump and Barr — whose authoritarian leanings, according to Feinberg, make him make him a perfect attorney general for the president.

The Postal Service fired 44,000 workers for getting injured while delivering and processing your mail

Published

One night in 2009, Madelaine Sattlefield lifted an 80-pound tray of letters carefully sorted by Missouri ZIP code. She had done this task thousands of times in nine years, but on this night, her arm seared with pain and went limp by her side. The tray crashed and sent envelopes cascading around her. She could barely move but immediately worried about what an injury might mean for her job.

“Anxiety had kicked in. I was like, what are they going to say, what are they going to do?” Sattlefield said.

Within months, the U.S. Postal Service fired her, one of about 44,000 employees who were either fired or left their jobs under pressure over five years in a program that “targeted” employees with work-related injuries, according to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. A commission ruling on the class action complaint also found that the Postal Service discriminated against an additional 15,130 injured workers by changing their work duties or accommodations, and unlawfully disclosed the private medical information of injured workers across the country.
