President Donald Trump on Monday melted down at New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, who on Sunday reported that the president’s campaign knows it’s currently losing to Democratic rival Joe Biden.
“There has never been a time in either of my two Campaigns when I felt we had a stronger chance of winning than we do right now,” the president wrote in addressing Haberman on Twitter. “Early voting reports look far stronger than originally anticipated. Every RALLY is BOFFO.”
The president then insisted that he isn’t upset at chief of staff Mark Meadows, whom the president has reportedly mulled firing should he win the 2020 election.
“There has never been more enthusiasm or spirit, by everyone,” Trump added. “Great fun, and so good for our Country. Already winning many states, but not reported. Biden put the LID on again – raising money with promises. They finally caught him, COLD, and he knows it. Laptop is devastating!”
Haberman reported on Sunday that “some of Mr. Trump’s aides are quietly conceding just how dire his political predicament appears to be, and his inner circle has returned to a state of recriminations and backbiting,” with Meadows taking a large helping of the blame from campaign staffers for his mishandling of the president’s hospitalization.

Utah Republican accuses Dems of ‘cheating’ in Georgia Senate runoffs — but his hometown paper doesn’t buy it
A Utah Republican is facing backlash after accusing Democrats of “cheating” in the two January runoff elections in Georgia that will determine control of the United States Senate.
The Peach State will be holding two runoff elections on January 5th. There is a special election, with interim Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) being challenged by the Rev. Raphael Warnock. In the other race, Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) is being challenged by Democrat Jon Ossoff.
In a fundraising appeal posted to social media, Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT) accused Democrats of cheating in the race. But his hometown newspaper, The Salt Lake Tribune, noted there was no evidence to support his accusations.
Trump legal team mocked after attacking Trump-appointed judge for being part of the ‘activist judicial machinery’ in Pennsylvania
Jenna Ellis, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney and the Senior Legal Adviser to the Trump campaign is once again being mocked, this time for her near-immediate response to a unanimous 3-0 ruling against the campaign in a Pennsylvania election case.
Ellis says she and Trump personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, have decided that the three judges, who were all appointed by Republican presidents – including the one who wrote the opinion who was appointed by Trump himself – are all part of the “activist judicial machinery” in Pennsylvania.
