Trump Is Now Complaining That His Political Opponents Are Supposedly Ugly


Former President Donald Trump responded, it seems, to recent criticism from Illinois Democratic Governor J.B. Pritzker by mocking the state’s leader’s physical appearance.

“Sloppy J.B. Pritzker, the Rotund Governor from the once great State of Illinois, who makes Chris Christie look like a male model, and whose family wanted him out of the business because he was so pathetic at helping them run it, has presided over the destruction and disintegration of Illinois at levels never seen before in any State. Crime is rampant and people are, sadly, fleeing Illinois,” Trump claimed on Truth Social, his alternative social media site.

In a recent speech to a state convention of Wisconsin Democrats, Pritzker used some of Trump’s recent legal troubles against him.

“Donald Trump is a convicted felon, an adjudicated rapist, and a congenital liar. He’s a racist, sexist, misogynistic narcissist who wants to use the levers of power to enrich himself and punish anyone who dares speak a word against him,” said the Illinois Democrat.

The Biden campaign is also using Trump’s legal problems against him as the Republican heads for an expected electoral rematch with incumbent President Joe Biden. In a new ad, the president’s team comes out swinging.

“In the courtroom, we see Donald Trump for who he is,” says the new ad from Biden’s campaign. “He’s been convicted of 34 felonies. Found liable for sexual assault. And he committed financial fraud. Meanwhile, Joe Biden’s been working. Lowering health care costs and making big corporations pay their fair share. This election is between a convicted criminal who’s only out for himself and a president who’s fighting for your family.”

The New York Times faced some criticism for initially writing in a headline that a new ad from the Biden campaign — presumably this one — “paints” Trump as a felon as though there’s perhaps some question about it. There’s not. The ex-president was convicted by a New York City jury of dozens of felony criminal offenses.
