Donald Trump is officially bonkers.
He does private events that are only covered by WaPo, he goes begging back to Fox News and gets talked down to live on air, he’s endorsing garbage candidates that hate him, he’s claiming he’s going to invent the next Facebook.
This is stupid.
Former president Donald Trump called Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell a “dumb son of a bitch” as he used a Saturday night speech to Republicans to blame him for not helping overturn the 2020 election and reiterated false assertions that he won the November contest.
Trump, speaking to a Republican National Committee gathering at his Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Fla., excoriated a number of Republicans even as he publicly called for party unity — focusing on those who voted to convict him in impeachment proceedings. But he saved his sharpest vitriol for the Kentucky Republican.
“If that were Schumer instead of this dumb son of a bitch Mitch McConnell they would never allow it to happen. They would have fought it,” he said of election certifying on Jan. 6, the day his supporters led an insurrection on the Capitol to block Joe Biden’s formal victory.
Again: the only news outlet reporting this story causally refers to 1/6 as an “insurrection” as if it is fact.
(Note: obviously, other news outlets are reporting on it, but this is the original source. All other media is saying “according to the Washington Post” as regards this event.)
Trump spent much of the speech, with many senators in the room, lashing into his former ally in personal terms, often to cheers from the party’s top donors. He falsely claimed that he won the Senate election for McConnell in Kentucky and attacked his wife, Elaine Chao, who served as Trump’s transportation secretary.
“I hired his wife. Did he ever say thank you?” Trump said. He then mocked Chao for resigning in response to the Jan. 6 events and Trump’s behavior that day.
“She suffered so greatly,” he said, his voice dripping with sarcasm. He later called McConnell a “stone cold loser.” A spokesman for McConnell could not immediately be reached.
The speech was light on his actual presidency, which some aides had wanted him to address, and delivered more of a familiar litany of grievances that seemed to animate the crowd. Many of his claims were false or misleading.
He did not directly address his 2024 plans — other than to express confidence about the Republican nominee winning — an attendee said, preferring instead to look back at the last election.
He reiterated many of his false claims soon after beginning his remarks and dove into particular states in detail, such as Georgia and Pennsylvania, continuing to claim he won them and attacking politicians such as Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R). He spoke for about an hour, according to an attendee, and bragged that he had tossed his prepared and “boring” speech, the attendee said. “Bullshit,” he said about the election, before polling the room of Republican donors on whether they believed he won.
He falsely said that most Democrats also believe he won but just won’t say so out loud, an attendee said.
Trump said the crowd at his rally preceding the Capitol attack was so large — falsely claiming that “some people say it was over a million people” — because supporters were upset about fraud and said he was “disappointed” in Vice President Mike Pence for certifying the election later that day. He expressed no regret about his actions on that day, nor about those of the Capitol rioters.
“I wish that Mike Pence had the courage to send it back to the legislatures … I like him so much. I was so disappointed,” Trump said.
Trump attacked many of his favorite targets, such as Anthony S. Fauci, the country’s leading epidemiologist, even mocking Fauci for his first pitch last season at Nationals Park — a frequent Trump taunt. He falsely claimed that Fauci only received credit because he opposed Trump, an attendee said, and joked that Fauci wanted people to wear five masks after not initially supporting masks.
“Have you ever seen anybody that is so full of crap?” he said of Fauci.
The former president said, without saying who, that someone recently suggested to him that the vaccine should be called the “Trumpcine.” He bragged about his handling of the pandemic, dismissing the widespread criticism of his approach and not mentioning the more than 500,000 who have died of covid-19.
Reprising an attack from the day he launched his campaign in 2015, he called immigrants “murderers, rapists and drug dealers.”
“They’re coming in from the Middle East. They’re not sending their best people. You have murderers, you have rapists, you have drug dealers,” Trump said.
He again said he was impeached “over a perfect phone call” and said he was jealous of Democrats for sticking together to vote against him. He said Republicans needed to be just as unified.
“We can’t have these guys that like publicity,” he said.
“Trumpcine” just shows how totally out of touch he is.
40% of the marines are refusing the vaccine, and Biden is trying to force them to take it.
Why would he not be focusing on vaccine freedom right now?
As far as I’m able to tell, that is the number one issue for most of his own supporters.
But hey – maybe he did say something about vaccine freedom – no one knows. We only know what the WaPo reported, because Trump didn’t stream the event.
Frankly, it sounds like it was just a normal speech – so why not just stream it? Obviously, he’s banned from everything, and it’s against the policy of all sites to talk about election fraud so no one can even upload copies of Trump speaking to YouTube (something which alone should tell you just how extreme our situation is here). But he can stream it on his own site.
If he doesn’t want to do that, he can at least tell someone to record it on their phone so people know what he said, beyond what WaPo tells us.
Every single thing the man is doing is moronic. I understand nothing.
His only agenda appears to be trying to take revenge on the Republican Party. Okay. Well. He should surround himself with people who actually want to do that then.
I used to think someone more or less put a gun to his head to make him hire Mike Pompeo and John Bolton and betray his own people like General Flynn and Julian Assange. But now seeing this post-presidency disaster, I’m reconsidering that. It looks like this is just how he does business – he puts people who hate him in control, and does nothing for the people who sacrifice their lives for him and his agenda.
Any good leader tries as hard as he can to do both of those things equally, by the way:
- You have to get people who are loyal around you, and
- You have to be loyal to those people
I never was any kind of QAnon level Trump-believer. But I did see his decisions and think: “there’s gotta be someone behind the scenes twisting his arm here, because this just doesn’t even make any sense at all.”
But seriously, he’s got people now who are saying to him, “first thing, talk nonstop about the vaccine and how great it is – people love that vaccine. Second, do speaking engagements and don’t record them, only allow the Washington Post to report on them. Third, and this is key – make your own Facebook.”
The figure who seems to be running this is yet another Miller, who I assume is also Jewish (although it doesn’t say it in his Wiki bio).

(The old “[person name] jew” search doesn’t show anything either – other than that someone named “Jason Miller” should use a middle initial.)
But it’s clear Trump either has Jews, morons, or Jewish morons running this show.
Either that, or he’s just waking up and reading the New York Times every day and making decisions based on whatever is on the front page.
Why did he not talk about:
- The fake George Floyd trial? The recent slaughter of the white family by the NFL player?
- Biden’s attempts to start all these wars?
- Satan Shoes?
- Most obviously: the recent push for a lockdown on guns?
- Most importantly: the death of America’s most beloved rapper, DMX?
Again – maybe he did mention some or all of that, and the WaPo just isn’t mentioning it!
I can’t find the video!
Here are the top tweets for “trump” right now:
This is also a top tweet:

Because the entirety of Twitter is now literally a Skinner Box, and they are obsessively promoting Chinese support for the Democrat Party (most of which are probably actually PRC spies, but some of whom are probably legitimate dumb skanks – there is no way for anyone, including the Democrat Party and the Twitter algorithm, to know the difference).
By the way, just a side note here: she appears to be saying that she entered some kind of 10 hour fugue state after getting the vaccine. You should have gotten the placebo vaccine in your own country, you stupid bitch! Your government, that you want my government to go to war with, actually loves you enough not to inject you with mutant genes!
But I digress…
Trump released a press release about the death of Prince Philip.

But nothing about the death of DMX! Oh no! Nothing his people actually care about!
The Philip thing really says a lot about where he is – because that is literally something that the media just hyped the hell out of, and no one actually cared about. Most people in America don’t even know who this guy was, and even in Britain, the BBC had to come out and explain why they were covering his death so heavily, because people were complaining about it.
You can get mad at Trump, but it’s really just dumb. He’s not actually benefiting from any of this any more than we are. Even if the goal is just to stroke his ego or to do a kind of kamikaze revenge mission, this isn’t really working. Laura Ingraham literally insulted him at the end of March, after he’d gone crawling back to Fox News – AFTER he’d declared a boycott of it.
I do not want him to run in 2024.
I’d rather have Matt Gaetz running on a jailbait platform.
- 2016: “Build that Wall!”
- 2024: “Grass on the field, play ball!”
But for Serious
When you go negative on Trump, you do always have to remember what he did to popular discourse, how he changed everything. People forget how dumb everything was before Donald Trump. Now, we have the term “anti-white” in the media, and Tucker Carlson is saying “replacement.”
By the way – just a note – the United Nations also talks about “replacement immigration” in their official documents.
Obviously, it’s a slightly different context, but it is the same thing (replacing whites with colored folks) and the same term (“replacement”).
But yeah – remember the good Trump.
Also remember that voting is no longer valid. After one election is stolen, you can’t expect the party that stole power to run a fair election – that is just silliness.
The Democrats successfully stole power, which means that they will remain in power until the government, somehow or other, dissolves. We have to be focusing on bringing people together. Rallying them. Trump is not helping with that, and he is actually making it worse, but he’s probably not making it that much worse because he’s doing such a poor job.
It’s all so…
Well, you know. You know the thing.
