Appearing on CNN’s “Inside Politics” early Sunday morning, New York Times White House correspondent Maggie Haberman claimed that Donald Trump is becoming “increasingly frustrated” at his string of court losses contesting the 2020 presidential election and now he is just “flailing” in the hopes something positive will happen soon.
Speaking with host Dana Bash, Haberman was asked about Trump’s week that saw not only court case after court case go down in flames, but also a disastrous press conference held by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani that has become most memorable for the streams of sweat and hair dye running down the attorney’s face.
“He’s incredibly frustrated, you can see it in the tweets,” Haberman began. “He’s had, in the last couple days; a series of court losses, some of them pretty excoriating including yesterday from Pennsylvania. He had his lawyer who asked to lead the effort, Rudy Giuliani, hold a press conference last week, Thursday, that was so calamitous that Giuliani had his hair dye or something running down his face and the president was focussed on that.”
Pressed on where he goes next, Haberman admitted that the president is now just scrambling for a win to bolster his spirits.
“The president is flailing around looking for something that he can call a win and delay certifying Michigan would be something you would see him point to regardless if it has an impact,” the journalist explained. “He has been seeding disinformation about the election since and before the election took place, so you could see a delay.”
“Joe Biden’s lead is so much bigger than what Donald Trump’s was in the same state in 2016,” she added. “Joe Biden has won by the same electoral votes and the president continues to claim that something was taken from him. You are starting to see Republicans break from him, not a ton, and maybe not a ton before the Georgia runoffs in January, but you are starting to see it.”
Trump-loving congressman turns himself into a laughingstock with a few deranged tweets
The first thing you should know about Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona is that he shouldn’t be confused with the famous movie villain from “Ghostbusters.”
One of them has been described as a “sadistic, shapeshifting, apocalyptic, cosmic entity.”
The other spelled his name differently and wasn’t a registered Republican.
Paul Gosar is no relation of Gozer the Gozerian. But he’s doing his best movie-villain schtick as part of a cottage industry of loyal subjects vying to carry on the manic mantle of Trumpism.
Trump turned to Giuliani after his top attorneys refused to get involved in his post-election legal battle: report
A new report from ABC News documents how President Donald Trump decided to put Rudy Giuliani in charge of his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election after his own top lawyers told him he was unlikely to prevail.
According to ABC News' sources, White House Counsel Pat Cipollone, as well as longtime attorney Jay Sekulow, both gave Trump pessimistic assessments of his chances of prevailing in court with lawsuits to throw out hundreds of thousands of votes in Michigan and Pennsylvania.
Bootlicker’ Marco Rubio smacked down for attacking Biden’s cabinet picks as ‘caretakers of America’s decline’
'So much racism'
Acting Senate Intelligence Chairman Marco Rubio suggested he will vote against all of the cabinet picks President-elect Joe Biden announced on Monday. The Florida Republican, an expected 2024 presidential hopeful, appeared especially disturbed by the educational backgrounds, and some are saying the racial and ethnic backgrounds, of Biden's diverse and experienced team.
"Biden’s cabinet picks went to Ivy League schools,have strong resumes,attend all the right conferences & will be polite & orderly caretakers of America’s decline," Rubio tweeted (lack of proper spacing and punctuation are original to his tweet.) "I support American greatness And I have no interest in returning to the 'normal' that left us dependent on China"
