President Donald Trump once again is under fire, this time after posting an old, dark meme that’s appeared on literally hundreds of web pages on social media sites like Twitter and Reddit
Oddly, it’s not the first time Trump has posted this meme. He did so the day the House impeached him.
The text reads: “In reality they’re not after me they’re after you. I’m just in the way.”
It’s also another Trump tie to neo-Nazis and white supremacists – unless it’s just a coincidence the meme has exactly 14 words, a common dog whistle to those abhorrent groups.
The image itself is being called “evil,” and Trump “paranoid” for posting it – which he did a half hour before the only event on his schedule today: a 3:30 PM intelligence briefing.

Ah I see we’ve switch to the “let’s just go full evil empire” portion of the campaign.
“Is there another, more sinister picture we can use?”
“No, this is def the one.” https://t.co/b73R0mTAKL

“if you don’t vote for me, the other side (who are also US citizens) will get you” …basically.
This is like a poster for a low budget college-made 1970s horror movie. Your immature, unprofessional and unpolished fear mongering propaganda has Joseph Goebbels laughing at you from the grave.
Covfefe, you Big Stable Genius. https://t.co/QeeCtwdlpQ

Umm, no. We’re after *you*.
That includes the military family members who are furious that you haven’t lifted a finger to protest Putin’s bounties. https://t.co/lXFOkcIfh5

You let Russia pay the Taliban to kill American service members and then rewarded them with a seat at the G7. https://t.co/8iSgV3uXZ6

Stephen Colbert hilariously mocks Oklahoma governor ‘Stitt for brains’ for catching COVID-19 after ignoring masks
Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt (R) revealed Wednesday that he is positive for the coronavirus. It could have been the exposure he incurred at the Trump rally. Or it could have been all of those times he went out without a mask saying he was "social distancing." Either way, it was something "A Late Show" host Stephen Colbert found to be a hilarious example of schadenfreude.
"All the people in charge who told us the pandemic wasn't a big deal are looking big dumb right now like Oklahoma governor and chunky Dracula Kevin Stitt, cuz remember Trump's rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma full of unmasked open mouth screamers," said Colbert. "Lots of people called it a terrible idea, said it should be canceled. Not Governor Stitt."
The problem isn’t the campaign manager — it’s Trump: Republican analyst
Switching up the campaign manager four months before the election when the latest poll shows you 12 points down has nothing to do with the campaign's leadership, Republican analyst Amanda Carpenter explained on CNN Wednesday.
"The problem isn't that Donald Trump has a bad campaigner," said Carpenter in an interview with CNN's Don Lemon. "They're raising tons of money. They have a boatload of surrogates. The problem is that he has a bad presidency. And no one -- no one, no spin master, not Kellyanne Conway, not Brad Parscale can spin the most important number of this election, and that's -- at present, 137,000 dead and rising. And so what we need to see if Donald Trump wants to turn this around is to turn around his white house. And I have four words of advice: More Fauci, less Kayleigh."
Here’s what you need to know about Bill Stepien — the man who just took over Trump’s fledgling campaign
President Donald Trump announced that his campaign manager, Brad Parscale, is being shoved out of his role given the failures the campaign has suffered over the past seven months.
In his place, for now, at least, will be Bill Stepien.
If that name sounds familiar, it may be because Stepien was part of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's Bridgegate scandal, where, as punishment to Mayor Mark Sokolich, two of three toll lanes were closed during a Monday morning rush hour and weren't reopened until Friday.
The court case quoted Bill Stepien's name over 700 times, including an email in which he claimed, "It will be a tough November for this little Serbian." The mayor was born in Fort Lee, and his lineage isn't Serbian, it's actually Croatian.
