Trump defender busted for lying live on CNN after he gets schooled by ex-GOP lawmaker

Published

Trump-loving former Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) got shut down by CNN’s John Berman after he tried to paint Democratic presidential nominee as an ally of antifa.

The discussion began with anti-Trump Republican Charlie Dent slamming President Donald Trump for embracing the support of QAnon conspiracy theorists, whom he described as patriotic Americans last week.

“These QAnon people are crazy,” Dent said. “I think we can all acknowledge that, and I can tell you by the president embracing that [pro-QAnon candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene], he has put Republican members in swing districts at risk.”

Duffy tried to counter by claiming that Biden was the candidate who supports looting and rioting in American cities.

“If you care about radical groups, Joe Biden hasn’t condemned the group that’s burning our cities and beating people up!” Duffy said. “That’s what everyone hears about!”

At this point, Berman stepped in and called B.S. on the former congressman’s claims.

“Joe Biden has spoken out against the violence in the cities,” he said. “Joe Biden says he doesn’t want antifa and doesn’t want to defund the police. You know that. And you also know that QAnon is. I don’t buy anymore anyone who comes on TV and says they don’t know what QAnon is. That argument is done.”

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."
