Maria Bartiromo speaks to Donald Trump Jr. on Fox Business (screen grab)

Donald Trump Jr. on Tuesday suggested that attendees of the Republican National Convention will be encouraged to wear masks even though President Donald Trump has refused to do so.

During an interview on Fox Business, host Maria Bartiromo noted that the party’s convention will be held in Jacksonville, Florida — where coronavirus cases are surging.

“We’re still two months out from the convention so we have a little bit of time to get everything in order,” the president’s son opined. “We’re going to make sure that everything is done in a safe and appropriate manner.”

“You know, I don’t think it’s too complicated to wear a mask,” he continued, “or wash your hands, follow basic hygiene protocols. We’re just going to do whatever we can to make sure that the people that are there in attendance as well as the people from the RNC and the campaign are safe, enjoyable and have an awesome time.”

Bartiromo also pointed out that presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden is besting the president in poll after poll.

Donald Trump Jr., however, said that the polls cannot be believed.

“I’m not entirely buying it,” he explained. “I think there is probably a component of it that’s accurate because if you look at the coverage of these things, they’re trying to blame all on this on President Trump.”

According to Trump, the media is trying to “throw blame” on the president for his coronavirus response and the social unrest in the country.

“I also do think there’s a large element like [2016] and perhaps greater that because of that response, because of the media reaction, because of some of the craziness that has gone on, between the looting and the rioting and the attacks, people aren’t going to be as apt to say, ‘I’m voting for Trump,’ because they’re not sure where someone else is coming from,” he said.

Trump added: “The fact is, these days you’re not allowed to just be apolitical, you have to be woke. If you’re not woke enough, if you just want to stay apolitical, you get cancelled anyway. We’ve seen that cancel culture become very pervasive throughout society.”

Rick Wilson urges ‘humiliation and incarceration’ for the GOP’s ‘grubby sellouts’ who propped up Trump for 4 years

Published

on

Republicans know the end of Donald Trump's presidency is near, despite his increasingly desperate legal challenges, and former GOP strategist Rick Wilson won't be willing to forgive and forget.

Wilson, writing for The Daily Beast, imagines there will be a rush of Republicans to distance themselves from the soon-to-be-former president, but he said there will be copious evidence of lawmakers, governors and political professional debasing themselves for Trump.

Expert explains why ‘systemic conservatism’ continues to prevail in America

Published

on

On the Sunday after the November 3rd presidential election, Utah Senator Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential candidate, congratulated President-elect Joe Biden but insisted that the overall election was an endorsement of conservative principles. He pointed to the gains Republicans made in the House, though they are still in the minority, and the failure of the Democrats to capture control of the Senate, at least so far. Romney found further evidence in the Democrats' inability to flip GOP-controlled statehouses.

Romney, however, is mistaken in his basic assertion. First of all, Biden won by more than 5 million popular votes, nearly 4 percent more than Trump's total. The president-elect obtained the highest number of popular votes in the nation's history. Biden's margin of victory, contrary to Romney's claim, is not a mandate for conservatism. Rather, at the very least, the election was a referendum on President Trump's leadership, which of course Trump used to promote conservative ideas concerning tax cuts for the wealthy and the relaxation of business and environmental regulations.

Expert breaks down the ultimate goal of Trump’s ‘classic Russian-style disinformation campaign’

Published

Jonathan Rauch, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institute, spoke with CNN's Brian Stelter on Sunday to explain the ultimate goal of President Donald Trump's false accusations of a rigged and stolen election.

Rauch was asked by Stelter if the issue is Trump is simply trapped in the delusion that he actually beat President-elect Joe Biden in the 2020 election.

"Is delusion a fair word for these election lies?" Stelter wondered.

"No, actually, I don't think it is," Rauch replied. "It's hard to know what's going on in the mind of the president, but you don't really need to. What you need to know is that what he is running right now is a classic Russian-style disinformation campaign of a type known as the firehose of falsehood. That's when you utilize every channel, not just media, but also the bully pulpit, even litigation to push out as many different stories and conspiracy theories and lies and half-truths as you possibly can in order to flood the zone if with disinformation."
