Team Trump fires off a jumbled mess of attacks on Kamala Harris as they fail to pin down their message: Ex-RNC official

Writing in The Bulwark this Wednesday, columnist and former RNC official Tim Miller says now that Joe Biden has chosen Kamala Harris to be his running mate, the GOP is having a hard time figuring out how to frame their attacks against her — as evidence by the claim “Kamala is a cop.”

“This whole deal leaves me a bit confused,” Miller writes. “After all, I thought that the Trump campaign’s big summer offensive was that Joe Biden is a Trojan horse for the Antifa Squad that wants to defund the police and allow looters and statue-desecrators to run free. Seems like picking a cop as his VP undermines that message a bit.”

Then there’s the “Trojan horse” line of attack that says Harris is a “phony cop” who is going to hide her record and come out as an anti-cop extremist. Ultimately, the narratives are a “pretty weak mega bank shot from a campaign team that has failed to settle on an effective strategy for fighting their actual opponents, rather than the people they wish were their opponents.”

Trump & Co. are also trying to brand Harris as a member of the “radical left” — but that contradicts the MAGA narrative that she’s some sort of “neoliberal” shill.

He explained that the world had been subjected to Trump's "call to arms" for his supporters, seeking to overthrow the election and nullify the will of the people.

‘Book her on Jeanine Pirro’: Witness ridiculed after going viral during Giuliani’s Michigan hearing

Published

Rudy Giuliani's election fraud hearing went off the rails Wednesday evening as one woman monopolized the comments section with a series of rants.

“That poll book is off by 100,000!” claimed the woman. “Why don’t you look at the registered voters on there? … what was the turnout rate, 120 percent?”

Some speculated if the woman was intoxicated while others wondered if she'd been using Gov. Rick Perry's "smart glasses" as a talking stick. One Michigander explained, however, that some people in the state simply talk that way.

Republican senator loudly tells Trump on speakerphone he’s going to lose his two major issues in military bill

Published

on

The military spending bill is coming up for a vote in the "Lame Duck Session" but the two major things President Donald Trump wanted aren't happening now.

Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe was walking through the halls of the U.S. Capitol with the president on speakerphone again, this time telling him the bad news about the bill. Inhofe was caught by reporters in a Capitol Hill restaurant several months ago loudly talking to Trump on a speakerphone. In that call, he promised Trump that there would not be name changes to Confederate bases.
