Trump officials despair that they have to talk about ‘demon seed’ as COVID strategy goes off the rails

Published

on

President Donald Trump was praised last week for striking a “new tone” in his White House coronavirus briefings — but that tone didn’t last very long once the president started promoting videos of a doctor who regularly warns about the dangers of alien DNA and demon sex.

In an interview with The Daily Beast, a senior Trump administration official lamented that the president has once again gone off the rails by getting into self-destructive feuds with medical professionals while simultaneously promoting the work of obvious quacks.

“When he started doing them again [starting last week], my thought was, ‘Oh, great, this f*cking sh*t again,'” they said. “And now we’re all talking about demon ejaculation.”

Even though aides believe that the president’s COVID-19 briefings are damaging him politically, they tell The Daily Beast that they’re resigned to the fact that they can’t stop him.

“The plan is to largely ignore Trump’s shenanigans and just, in the words of one of the officials, ‘continue doing our job to the best of our abilities, and the president is entitled to say whatever he wants whenever he wants,'” the publication writes. “A source with knowledge of the matter said there were ‘no plans’ at this time for Trump to scale back his revived briefing appearances, noting that ‘he’s just started’ this latest incarnation.”

Stuart Stevens is a veteran Republican campaign operative from five presidential races. When he spoke to PBS's Judy Woodruff Wednesday, he lamented the GOP failed the moral test it was presented with Donald Trump.

"Well, I think there's been two strains in the party. Call it an Eisenhower strain going back to the '50s and a McCarthy strain," Stevens said, recalling when the GOP would talk about expanding their party and bringing in more African-American voters. "Now we don't even hear any talk anymore of a big tent. And we seem to have settled into a very comfortable white grievance identity."

"You know something has gone horribly wrong when a journalist interviewing the president looks like that," said Meyers. "That's the face you make when your dad gets drunk and decides to tell you about the night you were conceived."

Former Trump ambassador tells Rachel Maddow ‘it’s a big red flag’ that Trump is trying to hide investigation of Turnberry scam

Published

Former acting ambassador to the U.K., Lewis Lukens, told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow that the inspector general raised questions to him and embassy staff in the U.K. about President Donald Trump's demand for the ambassador to lobby for the British Open to be hosted at Trump's golf course in Scotland.

According to Lukens, he told those questioning how to go about getting the British Open at Trump Turnberry, and Lukens said he was clear that it was "unethical" and "possibly illegal." Still, Trump's cronies persisted.

He explained that when the inspector general did the investigation they went back to Washington to write up the report and that it should have been released by now, but it obviously has not. Today, the acting IG, who took over just three months ago, abruptly resigned.
