“Morning Joe” co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski came right out of the gate on Monday morning ridiculing Donald Trump over the revelations in the New York Times that he is not only debt-ridden, but also one of the “worst businessmen” in American history.

According to Brzezinski, the current president is also the “biggest loser” when it comes to his business dealings.

Starting off by noting the most recent tax payment Trump made to the government was $750, and that for ten years he paid nothing, host Scarborough brutally described the president’s current situation.

“The numbers actually show that through a large part of his business career, he lost more money than any other American citizen,” Scarborough began. “And the amazing thing is daddy gave him the equivalent of $400 million, he lost all of that; bankruptcies right and left. Then, as he was struggling he finally got to ‘The Apprentice,’ struck oil there, made another $400 million there — lost all of that money.”

“I don’t know.,” he mused. “You would think if you lost $400 million that your daddy gave you the first time, you would say, ‘Hey, the next time I make some money I’m not going to be really stupid with it.’ I think it’s safe to say, if you just look at the federal records, Mika, he is the least successful business person of all time and the incredible thing is that he has painted himself as this great businessman. Which, by the way, we all know that in New York, real businesspeople would die laughing at the prospect.”

“When Donald Trump was doing ‘The Apprentice,’ they would say ‘middle America thinks that’s a good businessman?'” he continued. “That’s a business tycoon? They would laugh because they were running the banks where Donald Trump had rolled up hundreds of millions in debt. They were the ones running the construction projects he couldn’t pay for. They were the ones who had seen him collapse and fail time and time again.”

“I think when the history books are written, it will show that nobody has lost more money in American business over the past 20 years consistently than Donald Trump,” he suggested.

Officials in Wisconsin are warning of delays in counting votes after 13,500 ballots were misprinted.

"The state Supreme Court declined to take a case Thursday that would tell officials in northeastern Wisconsin how to deal with misprinted ballots, raising the prospect of lengthy counting delays as clerks fill out thousands of replacement ballots on Election Day," Patrick Marley reported for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Thursday.

‘#PerdueIsChicken’: Internet mocks ‘coward’ GOP senator for canceling debate after Ossoff destroyed him in viral video

Published

on

Democratic Senate hopeful Jon Ossoff destroyed his Republican incumbent opponent so thoroughly Wednesday evening that Georgia Senator David Perdue has just canceled the third and final debate.

“It’s not just that you’re a crook, Senator, it’s that you’re attacking the health of the people that you represent,” Ossoff told Perdue, who had little to say in response. The viral video had been watched 5 million times by Thursday morning. It's now been viewed 9.3 million times, nearly as many times as the number of people in the entire state of Georgia.

A fake ‘intelligence staffer’ crafted the groundwork for the Trump conspiracy theories about Hunter Biden

Published

It's unclear why President Donald Trump and his allies have chosen to attack Vice President Joe Biden's last living son as a key tenant to the 2020 reelection instead of focusing on his opponent himself. But according to a well-researched NBC News report by Ben Collins and Brandy Zadrozny, the "documents," actually came from a fake person that never existed using a profile photo created by an artificial intelligence face generator.

Months ago, there was a fake "intelligence" document about Hunter Biden that popped up online along with tons of "files" from a supposed laptop. None of it was real and it has all been dismissed by Trump's own associates as fake. But now it's being revealed that the company behind the effort was a fake "intelligence firm" called Typhoon Investigations, researchers and public documents revealed.
