‘He’s very sick’: Ex-Trump official says president needs to drop out and deal with his COVID-19 ‘brain fog and lung damage’

Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci was asked Sunday morning whether or not he thought President Donald J. Trump would develop a different level of hubris, humility and compassion for the more than 200,000 people who have died from COVID-19 now that he has become infected himself.

“Okay, so the short answer is no, Alex, and the longer answer is they haven’t even changed the optional mask protocol at the White House, so, no,” he said. “It’s not in his personality, but I think he’s very sick…those doctors are now part of the Trump reality distortion field. They’re either saying that stuff to comfort him, or they’re saying that stuff because he’s compelling them to say it, and the truth of the matter is he’s very sick. He’s not going to make it to the debate. Anyone who looks at this situation knows that, so it will be interesting as to what the campaign will do as a contingency plan given the fact the president is not going to make the debate next week.”

Scaramucci added, “Not only is he incapable of learning from it, he’s incapable of admitting a mistake and he’s incapable of apologizing. I think he apologized once and that was to the Pocahontas family for comparing Elizabeth Warren to Pocahontas. He’s not a guy to apologize to anybody.”

In recent days, Scaramucci has vocally called for Trump to drop out of his reelection campaign and resign from office.

“He still may be forced to drop out due to his health. We have no idea what’s going on with the brain fog or the lung damage as a result of COVID-19,” Scaramucci said. “If he really loved the country, he would drop out. He’s not physically or mentally capable of being the president anymore, and he would do that. But if he’s not going to do that and he gets some level of recovery in his mid-70’s suffering from COVID-19 with all the comorbidities, I hope the people give a landslide election to Joe Biden and we can get rid of him overall as president.”

He added, “I want him to get well, but I want him to go to Mar-a-Lago where he’s better suited to be a greeter at Mar-a-Lago than he is the President of the United States. Very good news, Alex. The polls are showing that, and we need to keep the pressure on and remind the American people that he has made the country weaker, sicker and poorer and he ignored the advice of epidemiologists and scientists, the result of which he couldn’t protect his family or his staff. I want to say something about the White House staff, which is anonymous to most people. Many of them are sick due to the dereliction of duty of the American president.”

Scaramucci added, “I know for a fact two that have fallen ill who want to remain anonymous as a result of what’s going on in their lives, but these are people who worked in the White House, in one case, over a decade, and they’re working for a man that would not abide by his own CDC’s protocols, a result of which loyal people serving in the White House have been sick because of him. I think people need to know that about him. He doesn’t care about anybody other than himself, and that’s why we’re in the predicament that we’re in. What I would say to the president is, please go home, get well so the nation can also heal. We need to heal from the catastrophe that you put upon us.”

Black voters who sat out 2016 are ready to boot ‘ignorant’ Donald Trump ‘come hell or high water’: report

Published

on

In 2016, “I didn’t like either of the candidates," said Jason Hooper of Greensboro, North Carolina.

Turns out, Hooper wasn't the only one with this perspective. According to Pew Research, Black voter turnout declined in 2016 for the first time in 20 years, down from 66.2 percent to 59.6 percent. Things are different this year, though. Washington Post-ABC News national polls conducted late last month and early this month found Biden leading Trump among African American likely voters, 92 percent to 8 percent. So if Black voters who stayed home four years ago turn out this year, Biden could swing back the states that Trump narrowly won against Hillary Clinton, no matter what happens with the White vote.

Senate Republicans preparing for ‘potentially catastrophic’ election blowout with 12 seats now in play: report

Published

on

What was once four or five Republican seats in the Senate that appeared endangered or already lost on November 3rd has grown to a dozen, reports Politico as top GOP officials find themselves on their heels on multiple fronts.

According to the report, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) could be looking at his last days controlling the Senate that has been notable more for packing the courts than passing legislation that helps the country during his tenure.

While Republican Senate seats in Maine, Colorado, North Carolina and Arizona already appear to be lost causes for the GOP leadership, Politico's James Arkin reported that more GOP senators are finding themselves "scrambling" in more states than the party had planned for.

Fox News report crushes Hunter Biden smear after network investigation ‘found no role for Joe Biden’

Published

on

A Fox News investigation "found no role for Joe Biden" in the business dealing of his son, Hunter, the network said on Sunday.

The admission was made by Fox News reporter Griff Jenkins.

Jenkins explained that the news organization had been provided documents by Tony Bobulinski, Hunter Biden's former business partner.

"You're talking about a business venture with the Chinese energy company in 2017 at a time when Joe Biden was not vice president," Jenkins explained. "But Fox's review of Bobulinski's documents, which were given to us, found no role for Joe Biden in that business venture."
