Trump Jr ripped to shreds for his glaring hypocrisy after he attacks Hunter Biden’s ‘nepotism’

Published

on

Donald Trump Jr. is unironically attacking Hunter Biden for trading on his father’s name and reputation for business opportunities.

Joe Biden’s only surviving son finds himself at the center of a foreign scandal that could end Donald Trump’s presidency and hurt the former vice president’s 2020 chances, but writer Molly Jong-Fast marveled at the startling lack of self-awareness displayed by the president’s eldest son.

“I’m not going to litigate the insanity that is ‘Ukrainium one,'” Jong-Fast wrote for The Daily Beast, “except to say that for now at least there is no evidence that Hunter Biden broke the law — but that’s never stopped Trumpworld from cooking up a faux controversy like Hillary’s emails or Robert Mueller having employed ’18 angry Democrats.'”

“I’m just going to say that, no puppet, we’re all marinating now in the irony that is the Trump family’s relationship with projection,” she added.

Jong-Fast, the daughter of authors Erica Jong and Jonathan Fast, admits she has benefited from the “hideous two-headed mistress that is nepotism,” and understands the complications of having a famous parent, but she said Trump Jr. and his brother Eric have no business criticizing Hunter Biden.

“Yes, if there ever were a family that should sit out conversations about nepotism, it’s this one,” she wrote.

She goes on to list the unflattering similarities between Trump Jr. and Hunter Biden, but she said the president’s son shares the family talent for projecting their own faults onto others as coping mechanism.

“The American people, and its press, aren’t used to a president who projects with this kind of zeal. We are in uncharted territory,” Jong-Fast wrote.

“But the fundamental truth remains,” she added. “If the Trumps are accusing someone of doing something, they are likely doing it themselves. There is a weird horrible Trumpy brilliance in using such a primitive method of obfuscation. While pundits look for three-dimensional chess, the president and his son will be sitting there eating the plastic checkers.”

GOP’s Joni Ernst may have inadvertently boosted Joe Biden in Iowa: ex-White House official

Published

on

On CNN's "New Day," regular contributor and former White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart almost rolled his eyes at a clip of Iowa Republican Sen. Joni Ernst rushing to the cameras to gush about attacks on Joe Biden, saying she may have ended up helping the former vice president in her own state.

Speaking with hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota after watching the clip of the Iowa Republican blurting, "The Iowa caucuses are this next Monday evening, and I'm really interested to see how this discussion today informs and influences the Iowa caucus voters, those Democratic goers. Will they be supporting VP Biden at this point?" Lockhart seemed in disbelief that she may have handed Biden a boost.

‘Sit this one out’: Ivanka Trump’s complaint about ‘elites’ hilariously backfires

Published

on

Ivanka Trump complained about coastal elites to defend her father -- and was swiftly met with furious mockery.

The White House adviser and eldest daughter of President Donald Trump shared a video clip of former Republican strategist Rick Wilson ridiculing the president's "credulous boomer rube" supporters, and complained the attack was derogatory and unfair.

"You consistently make fun of half the country and then complain that it is divided," Ivanka Trump tweeted. "The arrogance, mocking accents and smug ridicule of this nation’s ‘Real Elites’ is disgusting."

You consistently make fun of half the country and then complain that it is divided.

Republicans are being ‘torn and squeezed’ after Bolton’s book disrupts their anti-impeachment efforts: columnist

Published

on

On Tuesday, conservative columnist Matt Lewis wrote for The Daily Beast that former National Security Adviser John Bolton's book is a "game changer" that "puts the squeeze" on Senate Republicans who were hoping to dispose of the impeachment trial quickly.

"If you don’t think the bombshell revelation that John Bolton’s book will say Donald Trump wanted to withhold Ukraine aid until their government agreed to investigate Democrats has the potential to move the needle, consider the developments that ensued in its wake," wrote Lewis. "Susan Collins suggested she would vote for witnesses, and Mitt Romney said it’s 'increasingly likely' other Republicans would join them. Meanwhile, Sen. Lindsey Graham abruptly canceled a press conference (later, he left open the possibility that he would subpoena Bolton’s manuscript, even as he remained opposed to having Bolton testify), and Pat Toomey proposed a 'one-for-one' witness swap. By the end of the day Monday, Independent Sen. Angus King of Maine told NPR that he expects as many as 10 Republicans to vote for witnesses."
