Faction inside White House happy over removal of nutball Scott Atlas anti-mask post on Twitter


Atlas’ boss ain’t be happy, don’t worry!

Members of the White House coronavirus task force are praising a move by Twitter removing a misleading tweet from top Trump adviser Dr. Scott Atlas that told Americans masks don’t work.

The tweet’s removal was a “relief” among some task force members, Dr. Deborah Birx told friends over the weekend, according to a source, blah, blah, blah…

“Masks work? NO,” Atlas wrote, followed by a series of misrepresentations about the science behind the effectiveness of masks in combating the pandemic.

The tweet and its subsequent removal comes as coronavirus cases spike across the US and other members of the task force have taken to the airwaves to urge Americans to heed basic mitigation strategies, including mask usage and social distancing.

Sad, but true. You can pretty much always find some tame flunky to reaffirm fear of peer-reviewed science, sound medical analysis that puts the lie to the recommendations of corrupt turds like Trump.

Although the chants of death and “liberty” are warmed up and walking the halls of government and an increasingly piss-poor judiciary — a few voices still live within the corridors of government, willing to give a shout about the Emperor and his new clothes. The haberdashery retains its usual space inside the Republican Party.

200,000+ dead / Fake President lies / plays golf


Ren Onuma, Kyodo News

The president seemingly does not care about the more than 200,000 Americans who have lost their lives as a result of the coronavirus, but we do know one thing he cares deeply about — his golf game. Before hitting the links at one own private golf courses in Virginia on Saturday — for the 298th time in his presidency — Trump took to Twitter and thumbed out a slew of attacks and lies…

Finally, the president once again promised to replace Obamacare, something he often does but never accomplishes: “Obamacare will be replaced with a MUCH better, and FAR cheaper, alternative if it is terminated in the Supreme Court. Would be a big WIN for the USA!”

But don’t fall for Trump’s lies. Although he claims a recent executive order he signed will protect pre-existing conditions, the order is toothless and mostly performative. It does not even come close to offering the same protections as the Affordable Care Act.

This fascist clown show lies like a rug. Not even a rug as good as the orange foofaraw stapled to his scalp.

Trump thinks he’s “entitled” to a third term…


He can’t even count on his fingers

President Donald Trump on Saturday once again suggested interest in serving three terms in office, telling attendees of a campaign event in Nevada that he was “probably entitled” to an additional four years following a hypothetical second term…

Trump has frequently argued that he’s been treated unfairly in comparison with his predecessors, often pointing to the Russia investigation and his impeachment. Throughout his first term as president, Trump has also frequently floated the idea that he will attempt to serve more than two terms in office…

Presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson established an unofficial two-term limit, though President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was elected to the office four times, in 1932, 1936, 1940, and 1944, serving 12 years as president before his death in 1945. In February 1951, the 22nd Amendment was ratified, limiting American presidents to serving two terms in office.

Trump follows that old Republican adage…never underestimate the ignorance of the average American voter. They’ll believe a big enough lie every time.

Trump’s use of Nazi-era symbols looks worse every day

After Facebook removed the ads amid an outcry, the Trump campaign continued to defend use of the image — which was used by Nazis to identify political prisoners — by claiming it’s a “common Antifa symbol.”…

…The DHS document I obtained undercuts this series of claims.

The document — which is an assessment of ongoing “protest-related” threats to law enforcement dated June 17 — makes no mention at all of antifa in its cataloging of those threats.

The DHS document states that “anarchist and anti-government extremists pose the most significant threat of targeted low-level, protest-related assaults against law enforcement.”…

Not only does this document not name antifa, this description of generic “anarchist extremists” does not describe what we’ve come to understand “antifa” to be. While there might be some loose overlap between antifa and anarchists, antifa isn’t even a group, and adherents are characterized by specific resistance to perceived neo-fascist movements.

Obviously, Trump’s biggest problem in managing/abusing the structure of our federal government is finding sufficient nutballs to replace educated folks just trying to do an honest job.

Parent of child in altered Trump video forces Facebook and Twitter to remove it

The original before being altered to suit Trump’s racist beliefs

Facebook and Twitter on Friday removed a video posted by President Donald Trump’s account that had twisted a viral video of two toddlers after one of the children’s parents lodged a copyright claim. The video had more than 4 million views on Facebook…and more than 20 million views on Twitter…before it was taken down.

The now-removed clip is a crude and misleading edit of a video that went viral last year which shows a Black child and a White child running to hug each other. The version posted to Trump’s account made it first appear as if the Black child was running away from the White child…

Michael Cisneros, the father of one of the boys in the video, said last year he had posted the original video to social media because he thought it was a beautiful, candid moment to share in the midst of racism and hate in the world…

Responding to Trump’s use of the video, Cisneros wrote in a Facebook post Thursday night, “HE WILL NOT TURN THIS LOVING, BEAUTIFUL VIDEO TO FURTHER HIS HATE AGENDA!! !! !! !!”

The Republican Party sinks deeper into the fascist ideology Trump champions. Would anyone be surprised at a new Reichstag fire…set by Trump loyalists and attributed any one of the many groups opposing his criminal policies.
