Re: Media No kidding.... There was some talk among the reporters on MSNBC early this afternoon that they might just put one stationary camera in place and "pull straws" for pool coverage of a few reporters sitting in the very back row.
Rogue POTUS Staff Oct 9, 7:58 AM: Tonight. Live on Fox. Dr. Marc Siegal examines POTUS. "Having examined this man it is mah professhunaal opinyun that the LORD, your God, has HEALED the virus that afflicted his bawdy. I do decl-I do DECLARE he is fit for duty. Pick up the snakes and praise his holy name!"
Oct 9, 10:00 AM: The President wants to know why people are blaming him for the Whitmer kidnapping plot when it's her own fault for being such a bad Governor.
Oct 9, 10:35 AM: Pelosi's new 25th Amendment bill is a joke. Pathetic showboating and wasted energy. Even if passed, it would accomplish nothing. Can you figure out why? Look closely at the 25th Amendment.
Oct 9, 12:12 PM: Linked to a New York Times article with the headline "Trump's taxes show he engineered a sudden windfall in 2016": When asked for comment, the hotel explained that it was all a big misunderstanding. The $21M was simply transferred to a shell company so to be dry cleaned.
Oct 9, 2:01 PM: Linked to a New York Times article that said "A teacher and two students at the school attended by children of Amy Coney Barrett, the Supreme Court nominee who brought her family to a Rose Garden celebration at the White House on Sept. 26, have tested positive for the coronavirus.": There's too much here to say in a tweet.
Oct 9, 3:00 PM: Time for the media to start digging for the timeline of Amy Barrett's COVID illness.
Oct 9, 4:11 PM: Stop calling it a militia. It's a terrorist organization.
Oct 9, 5:30 PM: The President is asymptomatic at this point. Unfortunately, he continues to exhibit signs of illness. #InfectorInChief
Oct 9, 6:00 PM: The Pelosi-Raskin 25A bill is even worse than thought. It would be even more pointless than expected, due to poor wording, and would likely be unconstitutional. This is stupid.
Oct 9, 6:30 PM: These Clinton emails have so much sensitive information it's imperative they be declassified as soon as possible so everyone can see them.
Oct 9, 7:30 PM: Your mask is the shield of a Spartan. It is not for your protection. You wield it only to protect others. If you fail, the entire phalanx collapses, your nation will be put to the mercy of your adversary, and you will be unworthy to have survived.
Rogue POTUS Staff Oct 10, 8:55 AM: In response to a tweet from Lauren Witzke, the US Senate candidate from Delaware that said "Most third-world migrants can not assimilate into civil societies. Prove me wrong.": Does that German name make you a Nazi?
Oct 10, 5:54 PM: After the past four years the whole country could use a nap. #SleepyJoeForPresident
Rogue Potus Staff Oct 11, 9:01 AM: Linked to an ABC News article with the headline "Candace Owens' BLEXIT group pays for some attendees' travel to Trump's White House event": Yeah, but who is paying *her* expenses?
Oct 11, 10:00 AM: After holding to a much lower relief package & demanding Dems come down, he inched up & complained Dems wanted too much, then came up again & when his number was met he shut down talks saying Dems wanted too much. And now he wants "even bigger" deal? #ScribbleScrabbleOfTheDeal
Oct 11, 10:27: In response to a tweet that said "More astroturfed fake African-American pro-Trump accounts. Almost 10,000 retweets in three hours.": *gasps* Nyet...
Oct 11, 11:20 AM: Remember, when he talks about getting sick as a blessing from god, COVID as a purifier, medicines being miracles, etc, he's talking to segment of the people who *want* to believe the Book of Revelation will play out in their lifetime.
Oct 11, 4:16 PM: The court packing idea was a threat lobbed in desperation, hoping to thwart a SCOTUS nomination/confirmation. Even if Dems want it, the topic should never have been raised until after the election. Self inflicted wound that reignites voter concerns about trusting the D candidate.
Oct 11, 4:39 PM: In response to a tweet that said "Republicans started it. Mitch McConnell STOLE a Supreme Court seat and folks across like Democrats are just supposed to nod and respect the game. Nah. That’s not how it works. Two minority elected presidents shouldn’t have appointed the majority of the court.": Here's a pro tip: If your logic would have been rejected by your mother when you were two years old, then it's too immature for political discourse.
Oct 11, 5:00 PM: In response to a tweet that said "It seems to me to be a lot more dangerous for a longer period of time to fill vacancies with GOP Ideologues than to add two seats to the Supreme Court. Or, it's so close to a draw to call it even.": Here's a little secret: The GOP is unapologetically ideological. Non-base voters accept that, even if disliking some policies. But Dems constantly rail against the GOP for being ideological, only to do the same later. That's why Ds always suffer from trust issues with voters.
Oct 11, 8:47 PM: Despite the media's continual attempts imply the President was severely sick, the truth is that he demanded to be over medicated for a mild illness and now is even more out of touch with the severity of this pandemic.
Rogue POTUS Staff Oct 12, 7:30 AM: Under this President America has receded globally, while China has emerged ready to replace us. In record time he has wasted the American exceptionalism build over decades by our forefathers, as if it were a fortune inherited from his father.
Oct 12, 10:00 AM: In response to a tweet saying: Buttigieg wisely pleads cases that have a chance to land with the people who need to be swayed, instead of the preaching to the choir. Here, the "keep govt out of it" is an argument that conservatives can respect, ultimately reducing resistance to a Biden administration.
Oct 12, 12:00 PM: In response to a tweet from Donald Trump saying "New York has gone to hell. Vote Trump." No.
Oct 12, 3:30 PM: Linked to a Politico article with the headline "EU agrees sanctions on Russia over Navalny poisoning and Lukashenko.": There was a time when America was the greatest defender of democracy in the world. But under our current President we now lack the backbone. America is better than that. We deserve a President who will prove it.
Oct 12, 4:55 PM: Linked to a CNN article with the headline "Dr. Anthony Fauci hopes worrisome numbers jolt Americans to take steps to stem spread of Covid-19": While POTUS has failed us, the truth is that our state governments have also failed us, and we the People have failed ourselves.
Oct 12, 7:40 PM: Linked to a video of a man tearing off his shirt to reveal a Superman shirt beneath it: Hidden camera footage of the President rehearing for tonight's rally.
Oct 12, 10:23 PM: Linked to a video of Amy McGrath stating that Mitch McConnell can't call himself a leader if he refuses to let any legislation reach the floor of the Senate, and McConnell smiling broadly and laughing at her: McGrath doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell, and this laugh is more than enough to lament that.
Re: Media (NBC News) - C-SPAN suspends host Steve Scully after he admits lying that his Twitter account was hacked after Trump tweet
C-SPAN announced on Thursday it was suspending Steve Scully after the host admitted he falsely claimed his Twitter account was hacked last week. Scully, who was set to host the second presidential debate before it was canceled, had tweeted at former White House adviser Anthony Scaramucci last Thursday. “The next morning when I saw that this tweet had created a new controversy, I falsely claimed that my Twitter account had been hacked,” Scully said in a statement. C-SPAN has placed Scully on immediate administrative leave.
Rogue POTUS Staff Oct 13, 9:49 AM: Considering all the things she's publicly said about precedents and topics that might come before a given judge, it's all odd that Barrett won't answer Senate Qs about precedents and topics because it would be inappropriate for a sitting judge to send signals.
Oct 13, 12:08 PM: In response to a tweet that said "An accidentally cut cable has caused the entire Virginia voter registration online system to go down on the last day to register to vote before election day.": First Florida's online registration system went down at the last moment, now the same in VA. Good reminder that where voting is concerned:
1. Waiting can be perilous.
2. The best system is always pen and paper.
Oct 13, 12:20 PM: Also, people should read the article before they engage in wild speculation.
Oct 13, 7:42 PM: Linked to a Washington Post article with the headline "'Unmasking' probe commissioned by Barr quietly concludes without charges or any public report.": Barr later stated that because the investigation did not expected results, the task fell to him to summarily declare whatever outcome he wants.
Oct 13, 7:52 PM: In response to a tweet that said "Btw, where is Barr?": As low as he can get. Haven't you been watching the past four years?
Rogue POTUS Staff Oct 14, 9:06 AM: In all realism, this is the map right now. Doubt it at your own peril.
Oct 14, 3:30 PM: The problem with the Hunter Biden email news is that, in vacuum otherwise, they could easily be believable. But on the other hand, they're too clumsy an attempt to re-create 2016. The gambit betrays that POTUS is full of desperation. But sometimes a Hail Mary pays off.
Oct 14, 5:19 PM: Linked to a New York Times article with the headline "Russians Hacked Ukrainian Gas Company at Center of Impeachment": From January 2020
Oct 14, 6:53 PM: Retweeting from the twitter account of Republicans for Joe Biden: "Proud to be a
Baker, McCain, Romney, Bush, Kasich, Fiorina, Flake, Collin powell, Charlie Dent Republican. We reject Trump’s racist Republican party. We put #CountryOverParty!"
Oct 14, 7:21 PM: In response to a tweet from Trump War Room that said "BREAKING: Twitter has locked the personal account of White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany for sharing news Democrats don’t like.": While it may be cathartic to applaud this, it is actually playing into the President's hands. These actions by Twitter/Facebook will be cited as evidence that the election results are an illegitimate result of Chinese propaganda operations.
Retweet from Jan 26, 2017: POTUS: Use external email accts for information control. Maintain an official acct with "filler" to "make it look good."
Rogue POTUS Staff Oct 15, 11:30 AM: Linked to 2020Census.gov: You can help your family and neighbors to get their vote out. You can also help them respond to the census just by allowing them to use your computer or phone. It's not too late. But tomorrow will be.
Oct 15, 12:00: Black or Latino person gets arrested.
MAGA response: "Must be guilty. Wouldn't have happened if they didn't break the law." MAGA cultist get's suspended from Twitter. MAGA response: "Fascism! Oppression! Injustice!"
Oct 15, 3:00 PM: Linked to a New York Times article with the headline "'Straight to Gunshots': How a U.S. Task Force Killed an Antifa Activist": A short time ago, POTUS effectively admitted to ordering an extrajudicial assassination, just two days after the NYT reported on the disturbing discrepancies between the official story and eye witness accounts.
Oct 15, 3:25 PM: Linked to a Vox.com article with the headline "'There has to be retribution': Trump's chilling comments about extrajudicial killings, briefly explained": As you may recall, just a few short weeks ago he praised the fact that police failed to make a live arrest of Reinoehl, citing the need for retribution.
Oct 15, 8:45 PM: POTUS repeats his absurd, contradictory claim that the tax records that NYT obtained are both fraudulent and illegally obtained. Guthrie says nothing. Pathetic.
Oct 15, 8:59 PM: Question on ABC: How will you avoid engaging in partisan retribution? Question on NBC: You're so handsome.
Oct 15, 9:19 PM: Linked to a Politico article with the headline "Ex-Google chief: U.S. must do 'whatever it takes' to beat China on AI": Compare: Ex oil exec warns US must do whatever it takes to beat Saudi Arabia on oil production. Isn't it funny how much blind trust is placed in the tech industry?
Oct 15, 9:37 PM: Lincoln Project's new "vote for her" ad is by far their best work to date. Simultaneously prods the left leaning casual feminist who might have stayed home, and woos the macho, tepidly sexist farmer with a daughter whose the apple of his eye, all while simply being beautiful.
Rogue POTUS Staff Oct 16, 12:11 AM: There's a chilling side of the Qanon line that seems to have gone unnoticed. Qanon is not an organization. They don't *do* anything. To say they fight pedophilia "very hard" is a reference to, and endorsement of, the Pizzagate shooting. Another "stand back, stand by" moment.
Oct 16, 6:34 AM: Linked to a Trump tweet that said "Twitter Shuts Down Entire Network To Slow Spread Of Negative Biden News via @TheBabylonBee Wow, this has never been done in history. This includes his really bad interview last night. Why is Twitter doing this. Bringing more attention to Sleepy Joe & Big T": It's a parody site, you idiot.
Oct 16, 7:30 AM: You might wonder how a town hall pulled together on short notice incidentally managed to land two of the three FL-27 House candidates (both of whom are MAGA voters) in the audience, and you would be right to wonder about that.
Oct 16, 9:00 AM: *dramatic vocal fry*
POTUS gets duped by @TheBabylonBee, but wants you to trust him to avoid being manipulated by adversaries like Xi and Putin.
As President Joe Biden will not be duped by satire websites.
*rereads that sentence*
JFC, what's wrong with us, America?
Oct 16, 11:33 AM: In response to a tweet from Sen. Josh Hawley that said "Let me say again: the Judiciary Committee must subpoena not only
@jack @Twitter but @Facebook also. Facebook must not get a free pass": The free market solution would be to delete your account.
Oct 16, 12:00 PM: In response to a White House website with the title "First Lady Melania Trump: Give Focus to Our Next Generation": ...Never once looking within at her own dishonest behavior and all in an attempt to be relevant. These kinds of people only care about their personal agenda—not about helping others. Indeed.
Oct 16, 12:30 PM: "Looks like The Onion's trending."
"Dammit, what did he grab now?"
Oct 16, 4:05 PM: Linked to a Mariner News article with the headline "Susan Collins Backs QAnon Believers for Maine Legislature": Susan Collins has become the version of Frank Underwood that makes the wrong play about 80% of the time.
Oct 16, 6:00 PM: There's always been much to unlock about Hogan. MD is a blue lock, so his write-in means nil. The artificially centrist, apolitical partisan is cowardly courageous & curiously shows the merit of elected officials who are never comfortable in their job security.
Oct 16, 7:01 PM: Linked to a State Department tweet from Mike Pompeo that said "[The Chinese Communist Party] disappeared journalists, they hid doctors who knew the truth, they covered up, they allowed people to transit out of Wuhan when they knew better. These are the kind of things that authoritarian regimes do. The whole world can now see." And POTUS made them look like amateurs for trying so hard.
Rogue POTUS Staff Oct 17, 9:14 AM: Linked to a picture of Georgia Rep. Vernon Jones crowdsurfing during a Trump rally in Macon: This would actually be fantastic if not for the fact that, you know...pandemic, and everything.
Oct 17, 11:05 AM: If you have friends or family who say they're voting to reelect the President, show them this video. Watch it with them. This is the ballgame. If this doesn't sway them, nothing will. #VoteForHer
Oct 17, 12:00 PM: What if he doesn't accept the results? The question is always explored as a technical challenge, but hardly any attention is given to the cultural consequences. Will the MAGA cult declare a line of anti-popes as their new bishop of DC?
Oct 17, 4:00 PM: The President says we're rounding the corner on COVID, but it's closer to rounding the downward spiral.
Oct 17, 8:57 PM: In response to a Trump tweet that said "GIANT RED WAVE COMING!": Typo. He actually meant red sky.
Oct 17, 10:08 PM: Linked to an article that said "The risk of COVID-19 exposure onboard an aircraft is “virtually non-existent,” according to a new study by Boeing, United Airlines and the Department of Defense.": In other news, a Phillips Morris study indicated that cigarettes reduce the risk of lung cancer.
