It’s Thursday.

President Meltdown has returned to Twitter by tweeting 5 times and retweeting 44 times.

His first was sent at 7:45 a.m. D.C. time in which he stuck his nose into a feud between Republican House Members.

Republican Rep. Liz Cheney (WY), daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, and number 3 in House Republican leadership, earned ire from several loudmouth President Meltdown supporters who happen to be Congressmen, for daring to think for herself.

CNN says according to three sources in the room the drama unfolded Tuesday during a conference meeting.

Members including Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Matt Gaetz of Florida, Thomas Massie of Kentucky, Chip Roy of Texas, Andy Biggs of Arizona, Scott Perry of Pennsylvania and Ralph Norman of South Carolina all chimed in to air grievances against Cheney.

Gaetz escalated the situation later on Tuesday, tweeting that Cheney “should step down or be removed.” He claimed Cheney has worked against Trump’s agenda. Donald Trump Jr., the President’s son, also joined in, tweeting that Republicans “already have one Mitt Romney, we don’t need another.”

Cheney later responded publicly to the comments: “Donald Trump Jr. Is not a member of the House Republican Conference,” she said. “I take my position in leadership very seriously.”

CNN. 07/21/2020.

CNN goes on to say that:

Gaetz and Massie complained because *gasp horror* Cheney backed Massie’s Republican primary challenger.

Jordan whined because Cheney has dared to disagree with his Orange god publicly.

Roy hit Cheney for daring to support respected infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci during a pandemic. Roy’s chief upset is because Roy’s Democratic opponent had the nerve to retweet Cheney’s support of Fauci.

Gaetz escalated by tweeting:

Hear that guys, she dared to have her own thoughts and opinions, therefore she must suffer and be removed. So much Whining!

I am also making our so-called allies pay tens of billions of dollars in delinquent military costs. They must, at least, treat us fairly!!!

The above quote is President Hot-Take’s referencing NATO without naming it. Once again for the nosebleed seats, NATO does not work how he thinks it does.

The money paid into NATO is based on GDP and military spending of the country paying in. We are treated fairly based on maths. Which like reading his hard for President Hot-Take.

President All About Them Ratings, sends his next tweet after retweeting 5 times @ 8:12 a.m. D.C. time in which he asks if he has anything to do with Fox News high viewership.

Speaking of Fox News.

On Wednesday President Good You Know What explained how difficult a cognitive test is and how amazing he was told he was by the doctor administering the test.

At the start of the second clip the end section of the transcript below is included. The clip continues with President Good You Know What urging political rival former Vice President Joe Biden to take the same test to prove he’s “sharp.”

President Good You Know What: Probably a year ago, a little less than a year ago. I asked a doctor, I said, ‘is there some kind of test that I could take?’ Because I’ve been hearing about it. Because I want to shut these people up. They’re fake news. They make up stories.

I mean, like I’ll do an interview with you, I didn’t say you can’t ask me about this–I say ask me anything. I did one with Chris Wallace, he was nice enough to say, he said,
‘I just want to tell the audience there was no question that’s off bounds.’ OK, and he’s a tough cookie. And it was a good interview, I liked it, I enjoyed it. And it was good. But I didn’t say,
‘You can only ask this, you can ask’–we have to be sharp. If you’re in the office of the presidency, we have to be sharp.

So they were saying all these different things, it was going all over. None of it stuck, fortunately, but one of the reasons it didn’t is that I took a test.

I said to the doctor, it was Dr. Ronny Jackson [according to Daniel Dale, Jackson did return to Trump’s staff in February of 2019] I said, ‘Is there some kind of a test, an acuity test?’ And he said there actually is, and he named it whatever it might be. And it was 30-35 questions. The first questions are very easy, the last questions are much more difficult. Like a memory question. It’s like, you’ll go, ‘Person, woman, man, camera, TV.’ So they’d say,
‘Could you repeat that.’
So I said, ‘Yeah.’ So it’s ‘Person, woman, man, camera, TV.’
‘OK, that’s very good.’

If you get it in order you get extra points. If you–OK. Now he’s asking you other questions, other questions, and then 10 minutes, 15 minutes–20 minutes later, they’d say,
‘Remember the first question?’
Not the first, but the 10th question–
‘Give us that again, can you do that again?’

And you go ‘Person, woman, man, camera, TV.’ If you get it in order, you get extra points. They said,
‘Nobody gets them in order.’

It’s actually not that easy. But for me it was easy. And that’s not an easy question. In other words, they ask it to you, they give you five names and you have to repeat ’em, and that’s OK. If you repeat ’em out of order, that’s OK. But, but you know, it’s not as good. But then when you go back about 20, 25 minutes later–and they say,
‘Go back to that question,’–they don’t tell you this– ‘Go back to that question and repeat ’em. Can you do it?’
And you go, ‘Person, woman, man, camera, TV,’
They say,
‘That’s Amazing. How did you do that?’
I do it because I have, like a good memory. Because I’m cognitively there.

For his third tweet after he retweeted 1 time, he blasts former National Security advisor John Bolton.

Bolton is not going to prison.

Sexton is discussing an ABC news article published on Wednesday regarding an Raytheon engineer, Ahmed Serageldin sentenced to one and a half years in prison for keeping classified national defense documents about the radar system used to defend against ballistic missiles at his home without authorization. He pleaded guilty saying “I was sloppy, but I have always been loyal to my job and to the country,” before his sentence was handed down.

Federal prosecutors had sought five years in prison, but the Judge in the case found the sentence to harsh as the government could not prove Serageldin transmitted the 31,000 digital documents to anyone let alone a foreign power.

Speaking of prisons and prisoners one-time Presidential Fixer Michael Cohen is once again getting out of jail to serve his prison sentence under home confinement. A Judge found that Cohen who had been released over coronavirus pandemic concerns, was only sent back to jail as retaliation for not agreeing to not publish a book about President Thinned-Skinned Petty-Man.

His fourth tweet came after he retweeted 38 times @ 8:44 a.m. D.C. time in which he explains that his administration has done great things regrading the coronavirus pandemic.

His last tweet so far for Thursday came at 8:59 a.m. D.C. time in which he calls former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge a RINO for daring to disagree with President Wannbe’s Law & Order campaign. He also expresses his glee in watching Never Tumpers squirm.

Ridge the first DHS Secretary told CNN that he was disappointed in Wannabe’s reality TV approach to handling unrest in cities like Portland.

I’m not even sure they have a plan. Have they talked to the mayor? Have they talked to the chief of police? Have they talked to the US attorney? They’ll leave in a couple of weeks and the lawlessness will reemerge, and they still haven’t dealt with the social and economic conditions that underpin the lawlessness. It’s a very disappointing response to a serious problem, but it’s typical of somebody who thinks reality TV is real.

CNN. 07/22/2020.

CNN provides a video of Ridge speaking with CNN’s Michael Smerconish on SiriusXM radio, in which he says, “It would be a cold day in hell before I would give consent to a unilateral, uninvited intervention into one of my cities”


President With Nothing Better to do, but tweet and retweet like a tween girl who found out her favorite pop-star got married, had nothing listed on his schedule for Thursday, but is now planning another daily update where he repeats lies, only to run away once the media presses for answers to their questions.

Update.

President So Much for the New Tone has tweeted 2 more times.

The Washington Post reports that while President There Will Never be a PIVOT attempted with the above tweet to blame the Democrats for his demand that phase 4 of a coronavirus aid package include a payroll tax cut it was actually, Senate Republicans that killed “President Trump’s payroll tax cut proposal on Thursday but failed to reach agreement with the White House on a broader coronavirus relief bill.

This set off a frantic scramble with competing paths forward, as administration officials floated a piecemeal approach but encountered pushback from both parties, and the entire effort appeared to teeter chaotically on the brink of failure.”

Treasure Secretary Steven Mnuchin is quoted as telling reporters that “The president is very focused on getting money quickly to workers right now and the payroll tax takes time, so we’ll come back and look at that later.”

Senate Majority Leader Republican Senator Mitch McConnell said phase 4 would be the last coronavirus relief package.

I lol’d.

Obama, who wouldn’t even endorse Biden until everyone else was out of the primaries (and even then waited a long time!)

Vermont Independent Senator Bernie Sanders dropped out of the Democratic Presidential Primaries on April 8th, 2020, Former President Obama endorsed his former Vice President Joe Biden on April 14th, 2020.

Boy he sure did wait a long long time!!!!

Remember, I wouldn’t even be here if it weren’t for them. I wouldn’t be President.

As a reminder President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden were term limited. Meaning they served 8 years in office…

President Desperate try’s to appeal to Suburban women by calling them Housewives in his latest tweet.

The article is an opinion piece written by Betsy McCaughey published in the New York Post on Tuesday.

According to McCaughey if you are looking for a “quiet cul-de-sac where your kids can play outside, you need to know about Joe Biden’s plan for a federal takeover of local zoning laws.”

She goes on to fear monger poorer people being able to afford a nice place to live by writing, “Biden’s plan is to force suburban towns with single-family homes and minimum lot sizes to build high-density affordable housing smack in the middle of their leafy neighborhoods — local preferences and local control be damned.

Starting in 2015, President Barack Obama’s Department of Housing and Urban Development floated a cookie-cutter requirement for “balanced housing” in every suburb. “Balanced” meant affordable even for people who need federal vouchers. Towns were obligated to “do more than simply not discriminate,” as a 2013 HUD proposal explained. Rather, towns had to make it possible for low-income minorities to choose suburban living and provide “adequate support to make their.”

She ends her opinion piece by writing; The outcome of the November election will determine the value of their new home, the size of their property tax bill and the character of the town they now call home.

I was unable to find an equally strong objection to federal law enforcement officers detaining protesters without ever charging them penned by McCaughey, weird.

This post might be updated.

This is an Open Thread.
