Over the weekend, President Donald Trump’s supporters took to the streets with trucks and cars to wreak havoc on highways, bridges and other roadways around the country. In Texas, however, the Biden campaign bus was attacked as the heavily armed Trump supporters surrounded the bus and slowed it to just 20 mph on the interstate, which is dangerous and illegal. It was something that co-host Whoopi Goldberg said was out of the film “Mississippi Burning,” about 1964 Civil Rights workers.

Trump mocked it as an “escort” and called the drivers “patriotic.”

“You really are lucky that you didn’t get anybody killed talking this way, sir,” said Goldberg. “With what I’ve been seeing, his supporters have given me a flashback. And when they talk about,’Oh, we think there’s going to be some issues happening,’ you know, who do they think is going to start this? I haven’t seen Biden flags trapping anybody. Am I crazy when you saw this caravan, did you remind you of a ’50s thing as well?”

All of the women on the panel agreed, but it was Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro who were outright furious by the behavior and that police refused to do anything to stop it.

“I saw the fact that Trump has emboldened bigots and racists to come out from under their rocks,” Hostin said. “Before this anger and hatred existed in the country of course, it was taboo to behave this way. He has emboldened them. He calls them patriots and when you learn more about the incident, you know, these were heavily armed people brandishing weapons in their trucks. They outnumbered police officers, 50 to 1. 50 to 1. Think about that. And I immediately, Whoopi, thought, imagine the outrage from the Trump administration had this been a Black Lives Matter protest, imagine the difference in the reaction, right?”

She noted that Trump’s White House calls the BLM movement terrorists but somehow these Trump supporters are patriots.

Navarro said that she spoke to a police chief in Miami who told her that what those Trump supporters did was a felony and would be charged as “aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.”

But for her it was Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) that “incensed” her.

“I can’t believe it’s happening in America in 2020,” she said. “When I saw Marco Rubio last night at this Trump rally, Rubio who president Trump used to refer to as Little Marco Rubio, referred to — has now turned into little Trump. And he took a break from tweeting Bible verses to make fun and mock and make a joke about what people did with this bus. It endangered people’s lives. People could have been hurt. It’s an aggression against democracy. Against people’s rights to vote. It’s suppression. it’s instilling fear in people. It’s absolutely wrong and Marco Rubio, you who talk about socialism and talk about dictatorships to be making fun of this and making light of this, you shallow little hypocrite, I’m so embarrassed I ever supported you!”

Michigan GOP chair tells elections board not to certify results because Republicans were ‘disrespected’

Published

Michigan Republican Party Chair Laura Cox on Monday asked the Board of State Canvassers not to certify the 2020 election results as scheduled because Republicans were "disrespected.".

Cox appeared as a witness as the board was considering whether to certify President-elect Joe Biden's win in the state. Under state law, the board must certify the results before the close of Monday's meeting.

"I'm asking you to delay certification," Cox told the board's four members. "There are too many questions that need to be answered regarding this election, too many numerical anomalies and credible reports of procedural irregularities. We need to remove the distrust and the sense of procedural disenfranchisement felt by many Michigan voters."

Published

on

Veteran newsman Carl Bernstein revealed that there are 21 Republicans too scared to reveal they think President Donald Trump should have reached the end of his options to fight the 2020 election. Still, most of them aren't speaking out publicly and they spent the past year enabling Trump, knowing full well that this is who he is.

Writing for the Bulwark on Monday, Jonathan V. Last cited editors of the National Review who are calling Trump's behavior “disgraceful” and “the most outlandish and irresponsible performance ever by a group of lawyers representing a president of the United States.”

Power-hungry Republicans do not fear Trump — it’s worse than that

Published

on

There’s a presumption at work among members of the Washington press corps that needs rethinking. That presumption is this: the Republicans, especially those in the Senate, fear the wrath of voters who have balled up their identities with the rise and fall of Donald Trump. For this reason, all the Republicans, with rare exception, stand in silence while the president prosecutes what must be called an attempted coup d’etat.
