It’s Wednesday aka August 12th, 2020.
For August 12th, 2020 President Incompetent has tweeted 5 times and retweeted zero times so far.
In his first tweet he attempts to show that he has no fear of the recently named running-mate of former Vice President Joe Biden.
As the News Blender reported on Tuesday Biden announced that Senator for California Democrat Kamala Harris had been chosen as his running-mate.
On Tuesday during his campaign rally laughing called a press conference President Media Whore was asked about Harris as Biden’s pick, he responded by acting surprised that an ad he tweeted shortly after the announcement called her “phony,” said she was a person that told, “many, many stories that weren’t true,” and that she was “extraordinarily nasty,” to his supreme court pick “Judge Kavanaugh.”
The White House Transcript:
Planted Question: And I wanted to ask about a specific example that a lot of people thought was a phony moment. As San Francisco DA, she oversaw, according to the Mercury News, 1,900 marijuana convictions. But she was asked in an interview last year if she had smoked marijuana, and she appeared to joke and, according to some people, lie, and say that she was listening to Snoop Dogg and Tupac, while — their music hadn’t come out at the time, while she said she was smoking pot and listening to it. Why would she lie about that? Do you see that as more evidence — is her past on marijuana a liability?
President Sexist: Well, she lied. I mean, she said things that were untrue. She is a person that’s told many, many stories that weren’t true. She’s very big into raising taxes. She wants to slash funds for our military at a level that nobody has — can even believe.
She is against fracking. Fracking is — she’s against petroleum products. I mean, how do you do that and go into Pennsylvania or Ohio or Oklahoma or the great state of Texas? She is against fracking; fracking is a big deal.
She is in favor of socialized medicine, where you’re going to lose your doctors, you’re going to lose your plans. She wants to take your healthcare plans away from 180 million Americans — 180 million Americans that are very happy with their health insurance. And she wants to take that away.
So she was my number-one pick. I mean, she was — as they would say, because hopefully you’ll start college football — she was my number-one draft pick. And we’ll see how she works out.
She did very, very poorly in the primaries, as you know. She was expected to do well, and she was — she ended up at right around 2 percent, and spent a lot of money. She had a lot of things happening. And so I was a little surprised that he picked her. I’ve been watching her for a long time, and I was a little surprised.
She was extraordinarily nasty to Kavanaugh — Judge Kavanaugh, then; now Justice Kavanaugh. She was nasty to a level that was just a horrible thing. The way she was — the way she treated now-Justice Kavanaugh. And I won’t forget that soon.
So she did very poorly in the primaries, and now she’s chosen. So let’s see how that all works out.
Follow-up to the Planted Question: Should supporters of marijuana legalization vote for you, rather than her, because she convicted so many people in the past?
President Sexist: I can’t tell you what she’s voting for. I don’t think she knows what — I think Joe knows even less than she does. But I was only surprised at the pick. A lot of people were saying, “That might be the pick.” I was more surprised than anything else, because she did so poorly. Many people did much better than her in the primary. She did very poorly in the primaries. And that’s like a poll. You know, that’s like a poll.
He took another planted question this time about FISA abuse, he again accused Biden and former President Obama of committing treason, during his rant regarding the treason that wasn’t he shifted back to Harris and her questioning and treatment of now Justice Kavanaugh.
Planted question 2: Yes, about FISA abuse: So, now it’s widely accepted among Republicans that there was FISA abuse in —
President Attention Span of a Gnat: Tremendous FISA abuse.
Planted reporter attempts to get things back on track: The Justice Department IG has found out, with Carter Page foreign application. But we were actually warned in 2013 that the Surveillance Court was, allegedly, a rubber stamp. It was approving surveillance.
And I was wondering — I don’t think, as President, you’ve commented on Edward Snowden, but do you think he should be allowed to return without going to prison?
President Attention Span of a Gnat: So as far FISA abuse is concerned, there was tremendous FISA abuse. It’s amazing that it’s taken this long. And everyone knows that it’s been proven very substantially. Not only FISA abuse — changing documents and putting documents in front of the FISA court and courts that are disgraceful that they could have done it.
And the fact is we caught Joe Biden, President Obama, the whole group. You can look at Brennan and Comey and Clapper and the whole group. We caught them spying on our campaign. This was an illegal act like no other illegal act. This was treason. This was at the highest level of treason. And Obama and Biden got caught spying on my campaign, using intelligence agencies of the United States government to do it, both before and after the election. So before the election and then after I won, they continued. It’s totally illegal activity, and now we just have to see what’s happening.
But as far as Kamala is concerned, she’s a big tax raiser, she’s a big slasher of funds for our military, and she’s got a lot of difficult things that she’s going to have to explain. Plus, she was very, very nasty to — one of the reasons it surprised me, she was very — she was probably nastier than even Pocahontas to Joe Biden. She was very disrespectful to Joe Biden. And it’s hard to pick somebody that’s that disrespectful. When she said things during the debates — during the Democrat primary debates — that were horrible about Sleepy Joe. And I would think that he wouldn’t have picked.
For his last planted question, I skipped planted question 3, he was asked if Harris would help or hurt Biden.
Planted Question 4: Thank you, Mr. President. Two quick questions. One on Senator Harris: Very simply, is she going to help former Vice President Biden’s chances in November? Or is she going to hurt his chances?
President Broken Record: Well, I like Vice President Mike Pence much better. He is solid as a rock. He’s been a fantastic Vice President. He’s done everything you can do. He’s respected by every religious group. Whether it’s evangelical, whether it’s any other group, they respect Mike Pence.
He’s been a great Vice President, and I will take him over Kamala and the horrible way she, again, treated Justice Kavanaugh. That was a horrible event. I thought it was terrible for her. I thought it was terrible for our nation. I thought she was the meanest, the most horrible, most disrespectful of anybody in the U.S. Senate.
She’s also known, from what I understand, as being just about the most liberal person in the U.S. Senate. And I would have thought that Biden would have tried to stay away from that a little bit. Because with what they’re doing with open borders and sanctuary cities — where they’re trying to protect sanctuary cities, which is also protecting a large number of criminals; with all of the things that they’re doing — Second Amendment. They want to take away your Second Amendment or modify it to a point where it’s essentially no longer the Second Amendment. I would have thought he would have gone a different way.
Two weeks ago asked about Harris possibly being the pick, President Best Memory Ever, told reporters she was a “fine choice.”
He moves on to lie about his approval rating again among Republicans.
It’s still not true.
He then threads two tweets together, insulting women, minorities, and Bill Maher.
The “suburban housewife” will be voting for me. They want safety & are thrilled that I ended the long running program where low income housing would invade their neighborhood. Biden would reinstall it, in a bigger form, with Corey Booker in charge! @foxandfriends @MariaBartiromo— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 12, 2020
Watched @billmaher last week for the first time in a long time. He’s totally SHOT, looks terrible, exhausted, gaunt, and weak. If there was ever a good reason for no shutdown, check out this jerk. He never had much going for him, but whatever he did have is missing in action!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 12, 2020
He’s nuts. #NeverTrump.
And to complete his morning tweeting so far he decided to congratulate a QAnon supporter who won the Republican primary, calling her a “future star,” of the party he has killed with fire.
Watch: We uncovered hours of videos of Marjorie Taylor Greene, a leading GOP congressional candidate in Georgia, expressing racist, Islamophobic and anti-Semitic views. https://t.co/y6oZzomnlR pic.twitter.com/DKv8sCPjrK— POLITICO (@politico) June 18, 2020
The above is from June 17th, 2020.
CNN reported that Greene faced Republican primary opponent John Cowan in a runoff. The runoff had been triggered when neither Greene or Cowan managed 50 percent of the vote.
Greene faced off against GOP opponent John Cowan in the runoff. The two candidates previously competed against one another in a June primary election where Greene won roughly 40% of the vote, while Cowan received only 21%. A runoff was triggered after none of the candidates received over 50% of the vote in the initial primary.CNN. 08/12/2020.
Greene has been quoted as saying QAnon theory was something worth listening to and paying attention to, she also called the mythical Q leader someone who very much “loves his country, and he’s on the same page as us, and he is very pro-Trump.”

As many of you are already aware a pet peeve of mine is when elected officials talk about spending as if the money they are spending is their money.
It’s our money he’s attempting to bribe voters with, not his, as he’s a cheap bastard, who refuses to pay his own bills.
I’m sure once I’m less livid to actually fact check this bullshit he’s spewing, I’ll learn that this money had been allocated by Congress, but for right now, I’m going be mad, that he’s treating our money like it grows on damn trees.
Side note, he had one more congratulations to someone from Georgia tweet shortly after I posted the thread.
That gives him a total of 23 tweets and 1 retweet so far for Wednesday.
Here is a feed to the only White House live event scheduled today so far.
Biden and Harris have their first campaign event scheduled for this afternoon in Delaware.
This post might be updated.
This is an Open Thread.
Programming note: I will either have a live feed for Dummies daily campaign rally or nothing at all. I have things going on this afternoon and will not be online when he normally spews his stupid.
