President Donald Trump’s son Eric Trump is hitting the campaign trail to help his father’s flailing re-election efforts. On Tuesday he headed to Michigan where he chatted with Trump supporters and delivered a short speech.

“There’s not a week that goes by that we’re not parodied on Saturday Night Live,” Eric Trump said. “You know, that’s fine. I actually take it as a badge of honor, to tell you the truth, because it means they hate us so much because we’re doing something right. Does that make sense? Meaning, if they parody you and they want to put that much energy into you, that means that you’re being incredibly effective, does that make sense?”

“But every day we wake up we get punched in the face, and we go to bed and we get punched in the face.”

Trump also posted this photo of him with Michigan Trump supporters. Hardly a mask in the room. Among those in the photo is former Ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, who now serves as an RNC senior advisor for LGBT outreach.

‘Conjecture and musings’: Dem senator tears into Trump ‘election fraud’ witness at Michigan hearing

Published

on

Michigan state Sen. Jeff Irwin (D) blasted former state Sen. Patrick Colbeck (R) at an election fraud hearing on Tuesday.

At a state Senate Oversight Committee hearing, Colbeck suggested that there was a plot to use voting machines to steal the election from President Donald Trump.

For his part, Irwin noted that Trump had not requested a recount in Michigan.

"If you were on the losing end, much like, say, President Trump or candidate John James, would you have requested a recount?" the Democratic lawmaker asked.

"I've doubts with the integrity of the recount process," Colbeck replied. "So, I probably would not have done that."

Dem senator shames Steve Mnuchin to his face: ‘You’re leaving the country worse than you found it’

Published

Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) on Tuesday shamed Trump Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin for his decision to not extend the Federal Reserve's emergency lending facilities that were designed to keep the economy afloat during the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Brown started off by giving Mnuchin a blunt assessment of the state of the economy that he will be handing off to his successor.

"Last week, 778,000 people filed for unemployment insurance," he said. "In October, 3.4 million homeowners were past due when their mortgages, many of them will run out of forbearance options by April. As many as 40 million renters will spend the holidays worrying that they will be evicted on January 1st if their government, if we don't do our job."

CNN’s Ronald Brownstein compares GOP silence on Trump’s loss to Joe McCarthy’s enablers

Published

CNN political analyst Ron Brownstein penned an analysis that compared today's Republican Party to those from Sen. Joseph McCarthy's (R-WY) "red scare" during the early days of the Cold War.

"In McCarthy's era, most of the GOP's leaders found excuses to avoid challenging conspiracy theories that they knew to be implausible, even as evidence of their costs to the nation steadily mounted," wrote Brownstein.

With Republicans today throwing around "communist" and "socialist" as pejoratives for Democrats, it can be difficult to see where McCarthyism began and ended. His attacks began in the early 1950s when Congress created the House Un-American Activities Committee to investigate the private lives of Americans in the military and government. For McCarthy that quickly spread to a crusade against Hollywood, musicians and the literary world. He destroyed careers with a mere subpoena demanding people name names of other communists they know.
