Trump is a friendless ‘psychopath’ who now sees Kavanaugh and Gorsuch as enemies: Art of the Deal ghostwriter

Published

on

Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, who were nominated by Donald Trump, voted with the majority on Thursday against the president. Tony Schwartz, the ghostwriter behind “Trump: The Art of the Deal,” says that the president now views the two Supreme Court justices as his enemies.

“The psychopathy is why he does what he does,” Schwartz told CNN. “He has no conscience and so breaking the law for him is no big deal.”

The Supreme Court rejected claims by Trump’s attorneys that the president enjoyed absolute immunity, but the rulings may still allow him to keep his financial records secret until after the November election.

Asked how Trump now viewed Kavanaugh and Gorsuch, Schwartz said that “anybody that says anything contradictory to Trump is an enemy.”

“He sees the world entirely in terms of black and white, he demands loyalty and doesn’t give loyalty and the moment you break out of the pack, you’re gone,” Schwartz continued.

“He is at a point where all around him previous allies are beginning to fall. Look how many Republican senators are not going to the Republican convention. That’s a pretty big statement. Essentially Trump is a person who has been friendless all his life and will allow or prompt these relationships to die because of his anger at their failure to follow his every order.”

‘Trump is scared’ and ‘literally does not appear to understand’ what is going on around him: White House reporter

Published

on

Writing in The Bulwark this Thursday, Playboy Magazine White House correspondent Brian Karem says that President Trump is losing the "strength and vigor" that carried him to an election win in 2016, especially in the wake of recently being "eviscerated" by Chris Wallace of Fox News and Jonathan Swan of Axios.

The interviews "not only exposed how unprepared Trump is for the long-interview format, but how unfamiliar and unrelatable he remains to facts," Karem writes. "He literally does not appear to understand them."

There was a time when a blusterous Trump would pick fights with reporters, but now he can "barely muster the get-up-and-go to turn the page on the briefing notes that he pretty obviously hasn’t looked at before lumbering to the podium," Karem writes.

Published

On Tuesday, August 4, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas chaired a U.S. Senate hearing that was named “The Right of the People Peaceably to Assemble: Protecting Speech by Stopping Anarchist Violence.” The far-right Republican, during the hearing, claimed that “anarchist violence” and Antifa have been out of control at the George Floyd protests. Journalist Natasha Lennard, in an article published by The Intercept on August 5, dissects Cruz’ “political theater” and lays out some reasons why the hearing was a embarrassing farce.

‘A lying draft dodger’: Republican military veterans slam Trump and declare their support for Biden in new attack ad

Published

on

The Lincoln Project is not the only right-wing group that has been running ads slamming President Donald Trump; the group Republicans Voters Against Trump has been running anti-Trump ads as well. And a new RVAT ad, Ed Mazza reports in HuffPost, features Republican military veterans who do not want to see Trump reelected and are supporting former Vice President Joe Biden.

The ad, Mazza notes, will air on Fox News later this month during the 2020 Republican National Convention. And it will air in key battleground states that include Florida, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, North Carolina and Arizona — all of which Trump won in 2016. Recent polls have shown Biden to be quite competitive in those states as well as in Michigan, where Trump’s campaign has suspended its advertising following an abundance of polls showing Biden with a double-digit lead.
