‘Quaalude Trump is better than crystal meth Trump’: Morning Joe guest mocks president’s debate performance

MSNBC’s John Heilemann said President Donald Trump at least seemed somewhat sedate during the last presidential debate before the Nov. 3 election.

The “Morning Joe” contributor said the president indulged in his grievances during his debate against Joe Biden, but he wondered whether most viewers understood the references he made to various Fox News storylines.

“I think quaalude Trump is better than crystal meth Trump, you know, from the last debate,” Heilemann said. “That was, like, an improvement, I think.”

“He needed one extra ‘lude to get him through the whole thing, and he wasn’t quite there,” Heilemann added. “Quaalude Trump was still not that great. Joe Biden, I think, you know, he’s best one-on-one. I think his previous best debate performance was one-on-one against Bernie Sanders. I thought Biden was clear, on point and making his arguments and did not tire, as he sometimes has in some of the debates. He was strong, I thought, throughout.”

Heilemann said the president failed to land many of his attacks simply because they were too far into the weeds for most viewers to understand.

“They brought their fact witness, Tony Bobulinsky or ‘Baba Booey’ or whoever, that guy, refused to take questions at the press conference, and it’s not that there were no facts. As it turns out after the Wall Street Journal debunked the story, but Donald Trump’s lack of preparation, guys, I think, came through. Those Hunter Biden hits are complicated, and Trump was not well versed in them, so it sounded to me like gobbledygook. It was just gibberish coming out of his mouth. The big guy, you’re the big guy, he said to Biden, you didn’t understand that unless you’re in the Fox News bubble already, you didn’t understand a lot of the things that Trump was trying to say.”

2020 Election

Rick Wilson and George Conway hilariously ridicule the GOP’s attempt to save Georgia’s Senate seats as Trump implodes

Published

on

Conservative attorney George Conway-- who is married to former Donald Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway -- made an appearance on GOP consultant Rick Wilson's "New Normal" podcast on Tuesday, where the two Lincoln Project founders wondered whether the president really wants the Republican Party to hang onto the two Georgia Senate seats headed for a run-off in January after he went down to defeat in the state.

The trio started off the Daily Beast podcast with a hilarious dramatic reading of the Washington Post's bombshell report about the president's inability to comprehend how he lost the election, with Conway laughing at the mention of Trump's "fragile mental state."

‘Checkmate’: Legal experts agree remaining Trump election challenges won’t ‘amount to anything’

Published

on

President Donald Trump has exhausted nearly all of his options for overturning his election loss to Joe Biden, legal experts agree.

Trump continues flinging lies about voter fraud from his Twitter account, and only a few highly improbable options remain before Biden is inaugurated next month, reported Bloomberg.

“It’s checkmate in terms of the various chess moves on the board, but they could try go for other moves anyway,” said Edward Foley, director of an election-law program at Ohio State University. “Normally when you see that it’s going to be checkmate, you sort of concede.”

Mitt Romney on COVID relief: ‘The only time to borrow money is when there’s a crisis and this is a crisis’

Published

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) on Tuesday bucked most of his Republican colleagues by calling for a COVID-19 relief bill.

Romney appeared at a bipartisan press conference, where senators proposed $908 billion in aid for unemployed workers, local governments, schools, transportation and health care.

"COVID has created a crisis and in a crisis people expect Congress to act," Romney said. "It simply unacceptable for us not to respond to help in this circumstance."

"I happen to be a deficit hawk," he continued. "I don't like borrowing money. I don't like spending money we don't have. But the time to borrow money, maybe the only time to borrow money, is when there's a crisis and this is a crisis. We want to help people at this particular time."
