Trump ‘lashing out at everybody’ as firings loom due to Tulsa fiasco: CNN

President Donald Trump is still raging at campaign staffers over his sparsely attended Tulsa rally, according to reports.

CNN’s Kaitlan Collins reported that campaign manager Brad Parscale and other officials could be replaced over the rally — which drew slightly more than 10 percent of their worst-case scenario prediction of 60,000.

“Kayleigh McEnany said this morning she spoke with the president and he was not angry, but that is not what multiple people talking to the president since Saturday night said, and they described the president seething over the fact of so many empty rows in that arena on Saturday night after expectations had been high,” Collins said. “The president had been told that nearly a million people requested tickets, expecting it to be a full arena and then it wasn’t, and we know this is a president who pays very close attention to crowd size and mocks others when they do not have substantial ones, so this is not gone over well.”

“Of course, this has raised questions whether or not the president will fire someone over this,” she added. “He fired people in the past over crowd sizes, and people look at the campaign manager and other officials I’m told that could be under fire, the campaign’s official that organizes the rallies and White House officials, potentially, because yesterday we were told that the president is lashing out at everybody over this, and so, of course, as they figure out how the president will respond, a lot of that depends on the coverage and how long this stays in the headlines, but aides are preparing a way to not have this happen again and a repeat, maybe hold some rallies outside, in smaller venues to fill them up.”

Arizona Republican likens Trump’s loss to Japan getting nuked while losing WW II — but as a good thing

Published

President Donald Trump on Monday allowed President-elect Joe Biden's transition to proceed -- while vowing he would never concede.

Despite Trump losing the election, some Trump supporters are refusing to accept the outcome.

One Arizona Republican in Congress, Paul Gosar, drew upon the historical knowledge him learned on his way to becoming a dentist in a bizarre analogy he posted on Twitter.

Gosar suggested the Trump movement would be like an Imperial Japanese soldier in World War II who refused to surrender until 1974.

Neal Katyal predicts law schools will teach a ‘Worst Mistakes in Court’ class on Trump’s ‘pathetic’ 20-day fiasco

Published

on

Prominent lawyer Neal Katyal is best known for having tried over 40 cases before the United States Supreme Court and serving as acting Solicitor General during the Obama administration.

But he also has spent more than two decades as a law professor at Georgetown.

He drew upon all of that experience for a Monday evening appearance on MSNBC's "The Last Word" with Lawrence O'Donnell.

"Someday a law school class is going to be called 'The Worst Mistakes in Court' -- and it will be just about these 20 days," Katyal predicted. "Because this legal strategy is so pathetic it makes Trump's coronavirus strategy look competent by contrast."

Trump vows he ‘will never concede’ — in 11 pm conspiracy-filled rant

Published

Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential to President-elect Joe Biden, but is still refusing to concede.

White House aides reportedly convinced him to allow Biden to begin his transition by telling him he did not need to use the word "concede."

But that word appeared to be on his mind late Monday night.

"What does GSA being allowed to preliminarily work with the Dems have to do with continuing to pursue our various cases on what will go down as the most corrupt election in American political history?" Trump asked while continuing to lie about the election being corrupt.
