Trump Would ‘Eat His Own Children’ If He Found It Prudent

Atlanta’s Democratic Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms on Wednesday ripped President Donald Trump over his willingness to throw fellow Republicans under the bus when they don’t agree 100% with his agenda.

He will eat his own children, I’m sure, if he found it prudent,” Bottoms told CNN anchor Anderson Cooper…

Bottoms made the quip during a discussion about the upcoming U.S. Senate runoff elections in Georgia on Jan. 5, when GOP Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler will face off against Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock. Democrats need to win both seats to tie the Senate’s balance of power 50-50, giving Vice President-elect Kamala Harris the tiebreaking vote.

No one is surprised by such an appraisal of this self-serving thug…in my neck of the prairie.

QAnon has folks running for Congress on their nutball myths

In November 2017, Marjorie Taylor Greene, a small business owner in the suburbs of Atlanta, uploaded a nearly half-hour long video to Facebook outlining the elements of a new conspiracy theory known as QAnon, which casts President Donald Trump in an imagined battle against a sinister cabal of Democrats and celebrities who abuse children.

“Q is a patriot, we know that for sure,” Greene said in the video, which has since been deleted. “There’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take this global cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles out, and I think we have the President to do it,” she said, referring to Trump…

There is no factual evidence or foundation for the conspiracy theory. In the three years since the conspiracy was born, QAnon has grown from an American virtual cult to a global phenomenon. QAnon beliefs aren’t just divorced from reality but can instigate real-world violence; The FBI warned last year that QAnon posed a potential domestic terrorist threat.

And now the people who have engaged with the QAnon conspiracy theory, including Greene, are running for Congress.

Because their campaign is baked into absurdist conspiracy theories doesn’t make this klown show any less dangerous than the Neo-Nazis playing at being conservative Republicans. Read it and weep. And wake up your friendly neighborhood Democrats to the need to stand up to these creeps.

Leading global medical journal refutes Trump’s lies about coronavirus reporting

One of the top peer-reviewed medical journals in the world on Tuesday rebuked President Donald Trump after the president incorrectly cited research it published on the coronavirus outbreak in a letter threatening to permanently yank U.S. funding to the World Health Organization.

The Lancet, a leading British medical journal that has been critical of the president’s ongoing WHO aid freeze, refuted Trump’s claim that the global health body “consistently ignored credible reports of the virus spreading in Wuhan in early December 2019 or even earlier, including reports from the Lancet medical journal.”

“This statement is factually incorrect,” the Lancet said, noting it published “no report in December, 2019, referring to a virus or outbreak in Wuhan or anywhere else in China.”emphasis added

The first such reports published by the journal, the statement continued, were on Jan. 24, where two studies described the first 41 coronavirus patients from Wuhan, the inland Chinese city where the outbreak began, and detailed the first scientific evidence confirming person-to-person transmission of the new virus.

Those two reports detailed the Chinese institutions in mainland China, scientists and physicians from the mainland and from Hong Kong.

You can always tell when our Fake President is lying, BTW. His lips are moving.

Trump said this poll didn’t exist. Then, he fired the firms that ran it.

And surprise! The numbers are just as bad for Trump as everyone thought.

❝ ABC News on Friday published the results of an internal poll conducted by President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign in March, a survey that Trump himself denied even existed.

The poll found Trump trailing Joe Biden by huge margins in states he carried in 2016, including Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. In Texas, which has voted for Republican presidents by wide margins for the last 43 years, Trump holds just a two point edge against the former vice president.

❝ The existence of the poll and its damning findings were first reported by the New York Times…last week. It aligns closely with several independent surveys which have consistently found Trump trailing virtually every Democratic presidential contender in head-to-head matchups, findings which Trump himself has repeatedly denied. He also suggested the very existence of internal polling was a fabrication, and when that was proven to be a lie, instructed his staff to deny the results.

Here’s a link to the NYTimes article. And BTW, the firm(s) that handed over poll results which didn’t match the fake president’s beliefs have now been fired.
