Donald Trump speaks to Fox News (screen grab)

A panel of MSNBC commentators and political analysts couldn’t help but ridicule President Donald Trump for his new claim that he has done more in his first term than he promised, touting the “Space Force.”

“I would strengthen what we have done and do new things,” Trump told Fox News’ Steve Hilton in a Sunday interview. “Space Force, as an example, I have done more — I have an interesting distinction, and actually sort of a bad person in terms of doesn’t like Republicans or me said Trump is whether you like him or not, he’s done more than he said he was going to do, like, I never mentioned Space Force, that campaign, and we did Space Force, and I never mentioned a lot of things.”

“We did space force, apparently,” said MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace.

“Space Force. Wow. And he also ‘built the wall,” said Republican Elise Jordan using air quotes.

“It just is mind-blowing that Donald Trump consistently cannot answer this simple question of what he is going to do in a second term,” she continued. “Sean Hannity gave him, I believe, three tries at it, and friendly commentators have asked him the question. And yet he just veers into absolute nonsense and only provides more fodder for his critics who say he’s only in office for himself, which is clearly and demonstrably the truth at this point. Donald Trump is operating for his personal interests and not the national interests, and his primary interest is his ego and feeding and fueling the narcissism, as his niece, Mary, wrote in her excellent book.”

The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday announced that GOP members of the body would be united in voting for whomever President Donald Trump nominates to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the U.S. Supreme Court.

“The nominee’s going to be supported by every Republican in the Judiciary Committee," Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said, as reported by The Washington Post's Aaron Blake.

If Graham is correct, that would mean that Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) would be backing the nomination, despite trailing Democratic challenger Theresa Greenfield.

A Never-Trump Republican changed her mind — then crumbled when she tried to explain why

Published

on

In a recent op-ed for the Washington Post, Republican Danielle Pletka declared that despite the fact that she refused to vote for Donald Trump in 2016, she now feels compelled to support him in 2020. The piece quickly caught fire online, inspiring ridicule and sympathy from differing corners and triggering a surprising amount of discussion.

In one sense, it’s hard to see what the big deal was. The Post publishes opinion pieces in support of Trump frequently, and this one was not particularly special. Pletka herself is not a particularly notable figure. Like many op-eds, it was sloppy and unpersuasive, making huge leaps of reasoning and glossing over critical points in the argument. It didn’t take seriously any compelling counterarguments. It was, in other words, a mere display of partisan loyalty from a Republican who would prefer to be inside the tent than outside of it.

Here’s the doomsday scenario in Pennsylvania that could cost Joe Biden the election

Published

on

On Monday, the Philadelphia Inquirer walked through a potential voter error that could cost Joe Biden Pennsylvania — the exclusion of so-called "naked ballots," or mail-in ballots that aren't properly sealed in two layers of envelopes.

"The state Supreme Court in Pennsylvania, a critical battleground state that’s seen as increasingly likely to determine who wins the White House, last week ordered officials to throw out 'naked ballots' — mail ballots that arrive without inner 'secrecy envelopes,'" reported Jonathan Lai. "Pennsylvania uses a two-envelope mail ballot system: A completed ballot goes into a 'secrecy envelope' that has no identifying information, and then into a larger mailing envelope that the voter signs."
