Trump campaign tries to make a pop culture reference — and it instantly backfires

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s campaign faltered again as it attempted to make another pop-culture reference.

In the past, the campaign has run into problems when it photoshopped Trump’s head on Sylvester Stallone’s boxer-body during the film “Rocky,” so as to make the president look less obese.

Tuesday, the Trump crew again compared the president to Thanos a.k.a. “The Mad Titan” who wants to kill half of all living things. He ultimately ends up losing when facing “The Avengers.”

In the video by the Trump campaign, the Marvel movie is used, delivering Thanos’ final speech before he’s ultimately killed.

It’s unclear what the Trump campaign means by associating the president with an evil villain moments before he dies, but many online speculated it was likely because the Trump campaign didn’t see the movie.

“Avengers: Endgame” crushed the box office record at the time with more than 100 million people who saw the film in theaters. Trump only won the election with nearly 63 million people.

Luppen, who offers legal analysis on his popular @nycsouthpaw Twitter account, came to a conclusion that seemed to surprise him after watching the interview.

Democratic prosecutors wrap up case against Trump

Published

Democratic prosecutors on Friday wrapped up three days of arguments for seeking Donald Trump's removal from office, as the US president's lawyers prepared to take their turn presenting his defense in the Senate's historic impeachment trial.

For a final eight-hour stretch, the 100 senators listened as Democrats argued that Trump abused the power of the presidency in pressuring Ukraine to launch investigations that would help him politically and then sought to block efforts by Congress to investigate.

Democrats said they had met the burden of proof as they warned Republicans that Trump would remain a grave danger to the nation if left in office.
