The latest Trump tweet:

“I saved ... Republican Senators ... from losing in the last Rigged (for President) Election. Now they ... sit back and watch me fight against a crooked and vicious foe, the Radical Left Democrats. I will NEVER FORGET!

That's the President of our country, speaking to the world from our White House.

All you Trump voters, supporters, enablers and apologists share in the blame for this. Thank heaven he'll be out of there in a month. Or sooner, if the more spectacular lunatics of his inner circle (eg General Flynn) talk him into attempting a military coup.

Here's Joe Biden, answering a question on what the US should do about the legacy of slavery. If anyone can explain how any of it makes any sense whatsoever -- even excluding the references to Venezuela and record players -- I'll be obliged to you.

BIDEN: Well, they have to deal with the — look, there’s institutional segregation in this country. From the time I got involved, I started dealing with that. Redlining banks, making sure we, uh, are in a position where — look, you talk about education. I propose is we take the very poor schools, triple the amount of money we spend...Give every single teacher a raise to the $60,000 level.

Number two, make sure that we bring in to help the teachers deal with the problems that come from home. The problems that come from home, we have one school psychologist for every 1,500 kids in America today. It’s crazy. The teachers are — I’m married to a teacher, my deceased wife is a teacher. They have every problem coming to them. Make sure that every single child does, in fact, have 3, 4 and 5-year-olds go to school. Not day care, school.

Social workers help parents deal with how to raise their children. It’s not that they don’t want to help, they don’t know what to play the radio, make sure the television — excuse me, make sure you have the record player on at night, the — make sure that kids hear words, a kid coming from a very poor school — a very poor background will hear 4 million words fewer spoken by the time we get there.

MODERATOR: Thank you, Mr. Vice President.

Biden: No, no, I’m going to go like the rest of them do, twice over. Because here’s the deal. The deal is that we’ve got this a little backwards. By the way, in Venezuela, we should be allowing people to come here from Venezuela. I know Maduro. I’ve confronted Maduro. You talk about the need to do something in Latin America. I’m the guy that came up with $740 million, to see to it those three countries, in fact, changed their system to people don’t have to chance to leave. You’re acting like we just discovered this yesterday. Thank you very much.

Sure, why not?

He's talking about banks.

School and teachers raises.

Number two, make sure that we bring in to help the teachers deal with the problems that come from home. The problems that come from home, we have one school psychologist for every 1,500 kids in America today. It’s crazy. The teachers are — I’m married to a teacher, my deceased wife is a teacher. They have every problem coming to them. Make sure that every single child does, in fact, have 3, 4 and 5-year-olds go to school. Not day care, school.

Trying to make sense of teachers problems.

Social workers help parents deal with how to raise their children.

Now social workers.

It’s not that they don’t want to help, they don’t know what to play the radio, make sure the television — excuse me, make sure you have the record player on at night, the — make sure that kids hear words, a kid coming from a very poor school — a very poor background will hear 4 million words fewer spoken by the time we get there.

Record players and auditory performance.

MODERATOR: Thank you, Mr. Vice President.

The moderator said "thanks".

Immigration there ^

He called the moderator an ***** and said "bye".
I'll be obliged to you.

Not a problem.

Insurrection Act is not a military coup. Trump is well within his rights to use the Insurrection act. When evidence is currently being ignored by courts in all contested states.

Consider that as a win then... if only for the folks who didn't get on the tweeting bus but still voted.

On Christmas Eve, 2020, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously dismissed trumps claim that Wisconsin's Election Commission violated the constitution.​

Consider that a Christmas gift to America, and another giant LOSS for dotard trumps crew, incorporated into the "definition of insanity".

Tired of winning? #maga

I judge by their veracity. By that measure, WaPo fails miserably.
You seem to have appointed yourself the final arbiter of truth."Gloria In Excelcis Hubris". (I sing thy praise). :rolleyes:

I see your buddy Trump has finally shown his horns, tail, and forked tongue. (He's already been reddish-orange for some time now).

His parting shot to all those who would deny him the title of "emperor for life", went like this

"This bill is a disgrace! I think the American people deserve $2,000.00, not $600.00".

Before he ever said that, he was aware that the 900 billion dollar relief.bill had a veto proof margin, and that the senate Republicans who never approve that amount.

So what did he do? He simply ignored it, effectively tabling it, and strolled off to Mar Lago, at taxpayer's expense.

The net result is that congress likely won't be able to get too many things done, until after Biden's inauguration.

In the meantime, unemployment is running out, vaccines won't be paid for, and 4 million people are likely to be out on the street, when the eviction moratorium ends.

Erstwhile, he's granted pardon to all his cohorts, and contributors.

Judging by the number he's felt necessary to grant to members of his campaign staff, it would seem to illustrate that his campaign was exactly what it was thought to be all along, a criminal enterprise.

A further rebuke on Trumpy's tirades, is that he couldn't appoint a single Supreme Court Justice, who would buy into his bullsh!t.

As for his final SCOTUS appointment, he didn't even have the decency to allow Ruth Bader Ginsberg to be cold in her grave, before he rammed another justice down America's throat

The ever revolving door for trump appointees, and what they say about him after they leave, is also quite telling. He's a sociopath, and a sociopath in need of hospitalization.

When you gave me the lecture on Constitutional law, you mentioned you, "weren't educated in the US"

Given your constant rants, misdirections, misinformation, context, and content, I'm beginning to suspect that you're a refugee from a Russian troll farm

Trump has the option of a pocket veto, which nullifies the "veto proof" margin you believe the bill has. But you forgot a few facts. First, this is only an option because Congress still -- after a solid seven months of wrangling -- has not given the President a bill to sign. There is no bill on the Presidents desk yet. None. You've been bloviating here that entire seven months without complaining once about the delay. Yet, before Trump has even delayed the measure by one minute, you lay the entire blame at his feet?

And this monstrosity of a bill certainly deserves blocking. Much less than half of the $900B cost is for actual Covid relief. The rest is Democratic pet projects: union pension program bailouts, gender studies program, aid for the Kennedy Center, etc. And that doesn't count the Omnibus spending bill portion, which adds another $1.4 trillion to the bottom line.

The final bill's size is nearly 6,000 pages. Congressional members were given just six hours to read the bill before signing it. That's not responsible legislating, by any rational measure. The last time Congress signed a bill that huge without reading it, the result was the "Affordable Care Act", a bill that exploded health care costs, and broke every promise made about the bill beforehand ("If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor...).

Perhaps Congress should read this measure to see what's actually in it, then fix it, and send it to the President.

First off, the president , "isn't at his desk", he's in Mar Lago And second, the bill has been flown to Mar Lago.

Next, the 6,000, (although last I heard ir was 5,000 pages), isn't the covid relief bill, which is separate He won't even sign the defense spending act, (which every president in many generations have never refused to sign), if social media won't let let tun his mouth without any reservation or regard to the truth.

How do you say, "bloviating", in Russian?

Incorrect. The Covid and Omnibus portions are bundled together: Trump cannot sign one portion without the other.

the bill has been flown to Mar Lago.
Wrong again. Some reports state that it is expected to be flown there. But it hasn't left Congress yet. And it may never do so.

He won't even sign the defense spending act, (which every president in many generations have never refused to sign)
Wrong again. You're three for three! Obama vetoed the NDAA just five years ago:

Oct 22, 2015: President Obama Vetoes National Defense Authorization Act

Of course it may not leave congress. That's the way Trump planned it, when he started shooting off his mouth about the $2,000.00 stimulus check. He knew beforehand it would get blocked in the senate, and all the while, making him appear as a "great benefactor".

Hell, that a**hole Pat Toomey, even tried to block the Federal Reserve's ability to lend, disallowing the Biden administration's ability to grant further covid relief if necessary.

It all in his sociopathic play book. If the government isn't going to run with Trump at the head of it, then he's determined for it to not run at all.

I have to say that there is a part of me that feels sorry for Trump. IMO, he is a lost man.
Well, you know I've always believed that your compassion sometimes gets the better of your judgment and perception

My final hopes for Trump would be to have him dragged out of the White House by either a Delta force or Seal Team, (or both), and flown back to Mar Lago in a resurrected C-47, (mockingly named, "Air Force None"), given a parachute, and kicked out the cargo door. Hopefully, with commitment proceedings to follow

BTW, did you know they're holding an auction in Atlantic City NJ, for the privilege off pushing the button to implode the Trump Taj Mahal?
