The few remaining Republican senators who support Donald Trump have just been sad. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), a former military attorney, will not look reporters in the eye and said he would not read the impeachment transcripts. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) single-handedly blocked a Senate law protecting the whistleblowers. Then, this happened.
At his rally, the president put on stage a senator who used to be more even-handed than most and certainly more colorful, Mississippi Senator John Kennedy (R-MS). Maybe, the Republicans should not be so afraid of POTUS running a primary against them in their states. The president’s power has been in decline.
Senator Kennedy asked the question “What did Hunter Biden do?” He was referring to Joe Biden’s son’s income when he sat on the board of a Ukrainian energy company. His father was in office at the time. Both have already been cleared in a previous investigation.
Trump tweeted out his own answer to Kennedy’s question:
‘“What did Hunter Biden do for the money?” @SenJohnKennedy A very good question. He and Sleepy Joe must testify!’
No one had appeared to question what Donald Trump’s eldest three children have been doing with their private businesses. They jet around the world with a company of Secret Service members to protect them on the taxpayers’ dime. Oh, the irony.
Then, POTUS went on to call out the names of his perceived enemies: [Speaker Nancy] Pelosi (D-CA) and [Adam] Schiff (D-CA.) Since he apparently did not listen in the American Government class, the man just does not get how it works. Remember, “fake” in Trump world means “I do not like it:”
‘It was just explained to me that for next weeks (sic) Fake Hearing (trial) in the House, as they interview Never Trumpers and others, I get NO LAWYER & NO DUE PROCESS. It is a Pelosi, Schiff, Scam against the Republican Party and me. This Witch Hunt should not be allowed to proceed!’
Has the president been making America great again? He seems to think that saying is the same thing as believing:
‘THANK YOU! #MAGA’
One would think that Donald Trump wanted a press just like Russia’s. He has made comments to that effect. Of course, when people write news President Vladimir Putin does not like, they die. Again, POTUS calls out people by name who work at The Washington Post. Jeff Bezos bought the newspaper, but he does not interfere in the reporting or op-eds:
‘The Amazon Washington Post and three lowlife reporters, Matt Zapotosky, Josh Dawsey, and Carol Leonnig, wrote another Fake News story, without any sources (pure fiction), about Bill Barr & myself. We both deny this story, which they knew before they wrote it. A garbage newspaper!’
It appeared that the man who occasionally sits in the Oval Office has several words that he indicated were synonymous with “I do not like it.” These are “fake,” “radical,” and “hoax:”
‘The Radical Left Dems and LameStream Media are just trying to make it hard for Republicans and me to win in 2020. The new Impeachment Hoax is already turning against them!’
Again, the president showed his ignorance. This time it was about the economy, which has never been synonymous with the “stock market:”
‘Stock Market up big today. A New Record. Enjoy!’
