Celebrates Congressional R seat wins.
Big Congressional win in California for Mike Garcia, taking back a seat from the Democrats. This is the first time in many years that a California Dem seat has flipped back to a Republican. Also, Tom Tiffany beat his Democrat rival BIG in Wisconsin. Two great Congressional WINS!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 13, 2020
California for Mike Garcia…
New York Times election results with 314 of 411 precincts reporting.
- Mike Garcia (R) 80,337 (56%).
- Christy Smith (D) 62,998 (44%).
Tom Tiffany beat his Democrat rival BIG in Wisconsin…
New York Times election results with 100 percent reporting.
- Tom Tiffany (R) 109,594 (57.2%).

In a separate article the New York Times explains that in California’s 25th district special election to replace resigned Democratic Rep. Katie Hill, regardless of who wins (won) on Tuesday night the two candidates will face off again in November to determine who will serve a full Congressional term.
According to the linked article Wisconsin’s special election was held to fill a seat vacated by former Rep. Sean Duffy (R). Tom Tiffany was the favored candidate going into Tuesday’s election. President Impeached carried the district in 2016 by 20 points.
This is the first time in many years that a California Dem seat has flipped back to a Republican…
According to Govtrack.us Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon was California’s 25th District Republican Rep. from 1993 until 2014. He was replaced by Republican Steven Knight, who held the seat until midterms 2018. Katie Hill (D) beat Knight in 2018.
Many years =’s 2 years ago.
President Impeached moves away from celebrating to focus on “collusion.”
“Newly released documents show Schiff knew all along there was no proof of Russia-Trump collusion.” Wall Street Journal— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 13, 2020
The not linked Wall Street Journal article, is not a news article it’s an Opinion Piece written by the Editorial Board published on Tuesday. The quote appears under the headline.
April 9th, 2020.
The Wall Street Journal always “forgets” to mention that the ratings for the White House Press Briefings are “through the roof” (Monday Night Football, Bachelor Finale, according to @nytimes) & is only way for me to escape the Fake News & get my views across. WSJ is Fake News!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 9, 2020
As a reminder collusion is not a crime as Special Counsel Robert Mueller noted in his Russian Investigation into Russian Election Interference Report.
From the report PDF pg. 2.
In evaluating whether evidence about collective action of multiple individuals constituted a crime, we applied the framework of conspiracy law, not the concept of “collusion.”
In so doing, the Office recognized that the word “collud[e]” was used in communications with the Acting Attorney General confirming certain aspects of the investigation’s scope and that the term has frequently been invoked in public reporting about the investigation.
But collusion is not a specific offense or theory of liability found in the United States Code, nor is it a term of art in federal criminal law. For those reasons, the Office’s focus in analyzing questions of joint criminal liability was on conspiracy as defined in federal law.Mueller Report pg. 2. March 2019.
President Impeached moves on to campaign by using an obviously poorly edited video of former Vice President Joe Biden’s interview with ABC News anchor George Stephanopulos.
Does anybody believe this man? Caught! https://t.co/WfnIqs6BsE— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 13, 2020
The video is cued to when Biden is asked about the DOJ dropping the Michael Flynn case.

More campaigning from President Idiot.
Obama was always wrong! https://t.co/xRU4kJtExs— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 13, 2020
Former President Obama reads means tweets on Jimmy Kimmel in October 2016 then the video cuts (*again, it’s poorly edited) to CNN projecting President Who Think’s He’s Running Against Obama in 2020, winning in 2016.
Here is the 1st edition of “mean tweets,” from March 2015.
October 2016 “mean tweets.”
*Unlike the video of Biden, this video is not edited to exclude words, the transition between Obama and the CNN footage is poor.*
President Economically Challenged moves on to the Stock Market.
When the so-called “rich guys” speak negatively about the market, you must always remember that some are betting big against it, and make a lot of money if it goes down. Then they go positive, get big publicity, and make it going up. They get you both ways. Barely legal?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 13, 2020
According to Yahoo Finance YouTube LIVE market coverage currently the DOW is down 229 points, while the NASDAQ is running slightly up by 5 points, with the S&P 500 is down 14 points.
I’m not sure what President Who Lacks Empathy is attempting with this tweet.
As I have said for a long time, dealing with China is a very expensive thing to do. We just made a great Trade Deal, the ink was barely dry, and the World was hit by the Plague from China. 100 Trade Deals wouldn’t make up the difference – and all those innocent lives lost!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 13, 2020
As I have said for a long time, dealing with China is a very expensive thing to do.
First, I don’t ever recall him saying that. Second, is he finally admitting that tariffs hurt the American consumer? Third, I really have no idea what the hell he’s talking about.
I do recall him saying trade wars were easy to win.
When a country (USA) is losing many billions of dollars on trade with virtually every country it does business with, trade wars are good, and easy to win. Example, when we are down $100 billion with a certain country and they get cute, don’t trade anymore-we win big. It’s easy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 2, 2018
He moves on to brag about his polling numbers.
The Hill/Harris poll was conducted on May 6th and was an online poll of 957 registered voters with a margin of error of 3.17 plus or minus.
Real Clear Politics has the Impeached President’s average approval rating as 45.3 percent approve, while 50.6 disapprove of President Ego’s job performance.
There is some event happening today in the Rose Garden.
Here’s Trump’s public schedule for tomorrow. (Public schedules don’t include all of a president’s activities.) pic.twitter.com/aDnAai0xxm— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) May 13, 2020
CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller reports the Rose Garden event is a photo-op.
Wednesday at the WH. Pres Trump has a joint meeting and Rose Garden photo op at 4PM/ET with the Governors of Colorado and North Dakota. By my count, it will bring Trump's meetings with Governors to 10 since April 21.— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) May 13, 2020
