Cognitive Decline? Trump Short-Circuits During Bonkers Rant
The former president glitched during a tirade about sharks and batteries.Donald Trump appeared fully unable to articulate a story about electric batteries on Sunday, instead opting to spin a thread in which zero of the underlying premises were actually true.
During his Las Vegas rally, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee told a story that flew a bit off the rails. The tale began by allegedly asking a South Carolinian boat manufacturer, who made boats that were too heavy and “can’t go fast,” a self-described “very smart” question about the efficacy of electric batteries in water-faring vessels—but then quickly devolved into nonsense about Trump’s fear of sharks.
“So I said, ‘Let me ask you a question,’” Trump told the crowd. “And he said, ‘Nobody ever asked this question.’ And it must be because of MIT. My relationship to MIT. Very smart. He goes. I say, “What would happen if the boat sank from its weight? And you’re in the boat and you have this tremendously powerful battery, and the battery is now underwater, and there’s a shark that’s approximately 10 yards over there.”
Then, a quick sidenote: “By the way, a lot of shark attacks lately. You notice that? A lot of shark. I watch some guys justifying it today. ‘Well, they weren’t really that angry. They bit off the young lady’s leg because of the fact that they were—they were not hungry, but they misunderstood what-who she was.’ These people are crazy.”

One of the owners of Rookies bar in Clear Lake brutally assaulted one of his own employees in a competing bar the other night.

Of course he’s lusting after her, and has since she was 14. She looks like Ivanka, whom he molested for years when she was a kid! Been making as a** of himself over her for years.
Trump Can’t Accept That Taylor Swift Hates HimOver the years, Donald Trump has repeatedly embarrassed himself by picking fights with musicians who are much cooler than he is, from John Legend to Rihanna. Now it seems Trump has learned his lesson a little too well. Rather than lashing out at Taylor Swift, Trump has taken the opposite approach: He keeps complimenting her publicly and suggesting she might endorse him in the 2024 election. This just makes Trump look pathetic, as it’s quite clear that she won’t.
The latest proof that Trump is in deep denial about his status as a Swift foe comes from the forthcoming book Apprentice in Wonderland: How Donald Trump and Mark Burnett Took America Through the Looking Glass. In a November 2023 interview with the author, Variety co-editor-in-chief Ramin Setoodeh, Trump was asked to share his thoughts on the Eras Tour artist.
He could have said something noncommittal. Instead, according to a book excerpt released by Variety, Trump gushed about how “beautiful” Swift is, which is the highest compliment he can think of for a woman:

Trump, usually one to punch back at critics, is smart enough to know Swift’s fame is on another level. “She’s got a great star quality,” Trump says. “She really does.” Trump is effusive as he uses one of his favorite adjectives to describe women — “beautiful” — several times in a row.

“I think she’s beautiful — very beautiful! I find her very beautiful. I think she’s liberal. She probably doesn’t like Trump. I hear she’s very talented. I think she’s very beautiful, actually — unusually beautiful!” It’s her fame, not her songcraft, that fascinates Trump. When asked about Swift’s music, played so frequently on the radio that it’s inescapable in daily life, he says, “Don’t know it well.”

This is somewhat plausible. While there’s video of Trump driving around a listening to “Blank Space,” it doesn’t seem that Swift songs get much play when the former president is DJing at Mar-a-Lago. But Trump strained credulity when he suggested that as a “country star,” Swift might secretly be MAGA:

Beyond Swift’s looks, what intrigues Trump the most is the idea — frequently bandied about online before she endorsed the Democratic Senate candidate in Tennessee in 2018 — that she could secretly be supporting him. “But she is liberal, or is that just an act?” he asks me. “She’s legitimately liberal? It’s not an act? It surprises me that a country star can be successful being liberal.”

I tell Trump that Swift is no longer a country star; she’s been making pop music for years. He doesn’t seem aware of this, but he reaches for a different name. “Garth Brooks is liberal. Explain that! How does it happen? But he’s liberal.” Trump trails off. “It’s one of those things …”

No one should expect a 77-year-old show-tune lover to have his finger on the pulse of American pop music. But you’d think that Trump would remember how Swift repeatedly criticized him on Twitter in the lead up to the 2020 election and endorsed his opponent, Joe Biden, several months later:

Indeed, Swift has given no signs that she might lean to the right. She released a whole documentary about her decision to speak out against GOP Tennessee Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn in the 2018 midterms, she’s continually spoken out in favor of LGBTQ rights, and the Eras Tour opens with the anti-Trump song “Miss Americana & the Heartbreak Prince.”
Whether Trump was actually ignorant of Swift’s political views or just playing dumb, he got up to speed within a matter of months. By January 2024, he was reportedly fretting about whether Swift was more popular than him and what might happen if she backs Biden again. And on Super Bowl Sunday, he practically begged Swift not to endorse Joe in a post on Truth Social.
Since Trump’s strategy for winning Swift over seems to entail calling her pretty, admitting he’s unfamiliar with her work, and taking credit for her financial success, Biden probably doesn’t have to worry about losing her endorsement.

The court system is broken. Free Hunter! Right, Larry?

The special prosecutor was appointed by trump to his position and chosen by Merrick Garland to prosecute Biden. I have yet to hear anyone of the Bidens say that the trial was rigged, the jurors were prejudiced, and the judge was a Democrat-hating MAGArat. Imagine that.

Hell why should we care if Trump’s a felon.The blue states are letting felons out on the street every day in there states.And they don’t care about who comes over the border and kills Americans.I say just go back to your basement Joe you really don’t care about nobody except your pocket.

You apparently have missed the news.
On Tuesday, June 4, likely trying to get ahead of the usual summer rise in immigration, and after Senate Republicans once again killed the bipartisan border measure, Biden issued an executive order permitting him to seal the southern border temporarily when undocumented crossings surge to more than 2,500 a day, a restriction stricter than that negotiated in the Senate measure Trump scuttled. This order looks more like Trump’s effort to curb migration—one that courts blocked—at least in part because without legislation, there is no new funding to provide the additional courts the administration wants in order to move asylum cases faster.” HCR
Your constant fear mongering is getting old. Biden continues to work at finding solutions to the southern border while the MAGArats keep finding ways to scuttle it.

Had a day where 10,000 were let in since it was passed….how’s that workin for ya?


New York Post June 9th 2024

Wow, I just read the “article” in the New York Post. It is not an article, it is an opinion piece written by the staff of the Post. The Post, is and always will be, a right wing newspaper. If I were teaching a class in journalistic ethics, I could use this article to show how bias is used in news. If I were teaching middle schoolers about taking literally anything they read with skepticism, I would use this article. Even 6th graders could see the bias in the piece.

If there is proof of that, which I doubt because you lie all the time, they probably were helped by the MAGArats so they had something to bitch about.

It matters bigly that he’s a felon, and the Constitution says so. You hyperventilate nonstop about Hunter Biden, who is a private citizen clearly plagued with PTSD, is NOT a politician, NOT running for anything, and doesn’t have to do anything he doesn’t want to. You managed to over look that though.

Easy to talk about, when in Isolated areas, such as Martha’s Vineyard, people have NO idea how this country looks like a 3rd world country. Until it affects everyone, it’s a non-issue. My immediate area is too residential for migrant hotels, but half an hour away, they are roaming the streets ringing bells, drunk in the street and stopping traffic with kids in 100 degree heat with kids, selling water and flowers. They need clothes, shoplifting at the mall, stolen cars found at Floyd Bennett Field. And our taxes are paying for all of this. Our rights are being trampled upon.

You can thank the greedy rich for that. They’re the ones responsible for the price hikes.

The Democrat plan is to flood the USA with illegal aliens and then to give those aliens a fast track to citizenship with incentive to vote Democrat in every election. Get enough of these “new arrivals” to vote Democrat and the Democrats will win every election. This is their fascist strategy to turn this country’s government into what is essentially a one party system.

Every one of you who think that this is about justice being served is wrong. You might ask yourself why they want him out, what are they so afraid of. Our country is being destroyed piece by piece.

These slimy, corrupt, liberal judges have got to go. This pseudo-judge dropped bail on the murderer of a U of I women’s BB recruit from $500,000 to $50,000. A drunk who ran up on a sidewalk, killing the father and seriously injuring the rest of the family, and he will only be on house arrest if he bonds out. The US is officially on track to become Haiti 2.0 in no time. Disgusting.

WNBA…You may know Your Players for the Olympic Team but like the 7 or 8 Straight Gold Medal Winners before now as Usual America DOESN’T know them. You’re at the Line for an EASY 1 & 1 & are Throwing Up BRICKS by NOT placing Caitlin on this Team. Whole Lotta reasons I’m sure You have & apparently as Usual NO ONE Watching AGAIN!!! is ONE of them. Can’t have a Straight White Rookie Player WHO Broke 45 Team, Conference & NCAA Records including the Career Scoring & Assist Men or Womens WHO finally brought Viewers, Packed Arena’s Hell even Charter Flights to the WNBA….Can’t have ANY of THAT SHIT!

Johnson and Bird, all class…the WNBA? No class, and if they FAFO, women’s pro BB will suffer death rattles and expire.

Won’t be watching the Olympics if she’s not on the team. USA basketball screwed the pooch big time on this one. Their reasoning was plain f’ing stupid as well.

Referring to Bill Gates as a philanthropist is like calling Jeffrey Dahmer a chef. Billy-boy didn’t answer ANY question and is creepy .

Oh well, they weren’t counting on you for support anyway. See what she said? She is ok with it, why can’t you be? I will tell you why – because you hate seeing successful women, especially Black women, getting attention. Caitlyn isn’t one of the twelve best women’s basketball players in the US. She will be, but she isn’t there yet.

She is the best thing that has happened to the WNBA in a long time…..why not take advantage of the opportunity ?

Because this is the Olympic team not the WNBA team. She is 22 years old and will have at least four more opportunities to play in the Olympics. Besides that, she needs the rest. Even a 22 year old body can fall apart if it is not given rest. She has been going non stop for over a year.

You sound like a raving fool. A lot like your crazed cult leader. Keep ranting.

“I’m excited for the girls that are on the team,” Clark told reporters Sunday. “I know it’s the most competitive team in the world and I know it could have gone either way — me being on the team or me not being on the team. I’m going to be rooting them on to win gold. I was a kid that grew up watching the Olympics, so it will be fun to watch them.
“Honestly, no disappointment. It just gives me something to work for; it’s a dream. Hopefully one day I can be there. I think it’s just a little more motivation. You remember that. Hopefully when four years comes back around, I can be there.”

This is all about humiliating Trump. They’re getting off on it. At the very least, this is not the case to justify such petty revenge.

The SAME POS who Destroyed our Health Care System with Obama Care YOU eventually Elected THEM 1 Election Later BACK into Office & they REMAIN there Today! It’s NOT just TRUMP! Its Congress, Your State & Cities that GAVE Biden the places to SHOVE all these Illegals!

The health care system was destroyed by Republican Richard Nixon when he permitted healthcare to be a profit-maker in the 70s. It’s been downhill ever since.

This. trump’s cult.


Democrats are the enemy of the United States
The Biden admin is highly treasonous should be arrested

We have a President who’s insane. Biden’s border policy is actually meaningless.
No doubt, it’s a Biden left Admin effort. The majority of Americans disagree with Biden, and view him as a globalist. Having National Security threats and other foreign threats, that is all the reality of Biden’s Admin policies, making America ‘not’ safe. On Nov. 5th, 2024 Americans Vote Trump!

Kind of like Biden saying he would unite the country, huh

He tries but the trump cultists won’t allow that to happen. They want this country to turn into a far right ‘Christian’ nation where only their religion is the law.

Rural America supports Trump because they believe that urban elites hate him — and they believe that urban elites hate them, too. And I don’t think they’ll turn on him in significant numbers until they stop seeing him as one of their own.

It will be rigged if he loses and it will be legit if he wins. Can’t lose with that mentality.

Hunter & Joe only need to buy ONE juror for a hung jury & I would bet it has already been done. Then the prosecutor will decline to retry him. Hunter will definitely walk! (It’s a Dem thing!)

One juror has already been given money to not convict. She turned it in.

Why didn’t trump do that if it was so easy to do? Give us a link to your claim.

He’s not a Dem

Ha ha ha. trump would cheat his grandmother if it would make him a quarter. Bribing a juror would be “just business” for him.

Says the Biden’s

The correct usage is Bidens. You usage is a possessive. I imagine they taught that in 7th grade and that is why you missed it.

MAGAmorons suddenly concerned about guns and drugs. That’s hucking filarious.


Bull shit, Larry. Just like you.

Strange how the democrats hate guns but the majority of shootings in this country are committed by DEMOCRATS.

That is funny and wrong.

Ask Bragg

Why? What does he have to do with it? If you are looking for a corrupt judge, look no further than Clarence Thomas.

Who has Clarence charged for legal actions?

Harlan Crow.

A very very big effing lie. It’s misogynistic, inadequate MAGAs who do the shooting, and everybody knows it.

So by international law, IDF is on the black list for committing crimes against children.
You know who also is on the list.. ISIS, Taliban, Russia.


 Hormone therapy alone increases cardiovascular problems by almost double…. Not to mention the suicide risk increases post “treatment”….

Depends on the hormone treatment.

Sex change?

Questions NO One in the Media is Asking! This Hunter Biden Trial is about the Illegal Purchase of a 6 Shot Revolver & Speed Loader. The Media Coverage Has Shown Repeatedly a Pic from His Laptop of Him Naked holding a Clip Fed 9mm Pistol. SO Why isn’t ANYONE asking How’d He Get THAT Gun? Who’s IS It? Where is IT Now? THEY haven’t even ASKED those Questions even in the Ongoing Trial…WTF….We now KNOW this is Rigged it’s Just a matter of HOW Now.

THIS is the type of communist, anti-Christian action that we have to expose and fight against or this country is finished. Biden is a criminal, a scumbag, a liar, and a pedo…and yet the liberal Left backs this douchebag and his terrorist gang all the way.

I think you meant donald trump is a criminal (34x convicted felon), a scumbag, a liar (the best liar) and a pedo…”you remind me of my daughter” (said to a porn star). And yet, you back him unconditionally.

Your “Christianity” is not Christian at all. Jesus would throw you and the rest of the money-changers out of His temple.

You love that pic of him naked, don’t you? Probably hanging on your wall.

This is your month…enjoy it.

LOL you’re concerned now about druggies with guns? Most of them are Republicans!

Look at what the left have become!!
The Party of Evil!
Do you have a Cock? Then you are a MAN!!!!!
The “carcass in chief”. and the joe blowers are SICK! EVIL!!
Stop Accepting Mental Illness
Stop Prompting Mental Illness
Start Treating it!!!!
The joe blowers and the “carcass in chief”. are nothing but American communists

LOL that’s MAGA thanks to Drumpf, and everybody knows it.

The whole country should be embarrassed by all the Biden’s.
It’s ok. Democrat leadership gets nations hooked on lies.
The entire Biden family is TRASH!

This whole country is embarrassed by thieving, lying, misogynistic, enemy-dictator-loving, child molester Drumpf. He and family, including his father, an actual Nazi, are the trash.

This is proof that the FBI is politically motivated. It’s not a constitutional branch of the government and should be shut down. As we have said, the evidence has shown the crazy liberals and their transgender ideology is creating shooters. It’s not the conservatives and that is why the FBI tried to hide the information. It doesn’t fit the narrative.

No true conservative will have anything to do with MAGA. In fact, they’re quietly working to defeat Drumpf.

Poopin’ Joe 
Joe Biden has an awkward appearance at Normandy on the 80th anniversary of D-Day; the Democrats try to tie World War II to the fight against Trump; and Steve Bannon is sentenced to jail time.

There was nothing awkward about it. It was respectful and appropriate, unlike all of Drumpf’s appearances. There is a VERY DIRECT AND OBVIOUS CONNECTION BETWEEN DRUMPF AND HITLER/WORLD WAR II, since Drumpf and MAGA are following Hitler’s playbook, step by step!

Of course Joe is opening the border even more. Whatever he says , it’s the opposite


LOL It was Drumpf who tried to blackmail Zelensky to help him cheat his way into the White House, that’s public knowledge! So is the fact that Biden just closed the southern border! Put down the meth!

Rich Miller, Reporter at Bloomberg News
So how strong is the jobs market really? As the US November elections approach, political pundits have been wrestling with an apparent disconnect between the public’s perception of the economy and its performance as seen by economists. Americans on the whole tell pollsters that they’re downbeat about the economy. But economists generally think it’s doing quite well – especially when it comes to the labor market.
New data from the government suggest that there may be something to the public’s unease: The jobs market may not be quite as buoyant as economists believe. The monthly tally on job gains last year may have been about 60,000 too high. That changes the picture of the labor market from one that was superhot to something more tepid. And it raises the risk that the Federal Reserve will overdo it in its effort to cool off the market without killing it.

At least he apologized, wonder if the 51 signers to the laptop disinformation hoax will.

Well, it is a totally different situation so I can’t tell you what they will do. Regardless, another right wing conspiracy debunked. DeSousa did not apologize for his film which was 99% bullshit.

These bozos know how to stop the war and they refuse to do it because wars are the biggest money makers for the cabals in the world. Let Trump back in and wars will stop in no time. It’s why those vicious snakes don’t want him in power

This is why we don’t want him back in:


SUCKS They’ve quit Showing the Movie Longest Day with SO many Great Actors in it. Why’s THAT?

Who has quit showing it?

Quit showing it? I just saw it on TV today!

America has Forgotten….America ISN’T what It IS…But What IT Could Be…That’s the Dream!
