Trump

Former President Donald Trump decried the lack of "takers" for his challenge for a televised debate over the results of the 2020 election.

His comments came in a statement issued through his Save America PAC on Tuesday.

He said: "Itís really interesting, everybody wants me on television, I get the highest ratings by far, they need ratings to survive, and yet I put out a challenge to debate me about the massive election fraud, which took place in the 2020 presidential election, and there are no takers ó think of it, zero takers for the so-called 'ratings machine.'


"The reason is, they know they canít win. All I have to do is lay out the facts ó they are irrefutable. Iíve supposedly won all my political debates, but this would be the easiest of them all!

This may be a stretch for you, but two things can be true at once.

First, Trump is a morally bankrupt, unbelievably obnoxious egomaniac.

Second, our sitting POTUS violated his own suggestions, as well as local guidelines and a sign on the door, by taking his mask off.

Both of those things can be true at the same time. Nobody said that a maskless Biden was a huge, massive story.

Jeesh. You're doing more damage control on this, than Bidens team is doing. It's not a big deal, it was a minor, minor gaffe that has bad optics.

but Trump!

When do you stop responding to all Biden criticism, with "but Trump..."? What's the statute of limitations on that?

Only you have the ability to these 2 issues as the same itís a gift you have

As I have said I look at Bidenís history of wearing a mask ..

and as someone who wore a mask on a Trip to California! even as the perfect liberal you think I am.

A few times i removed my mask to drink or eat . And I made the cardinal sin like Biden , I forgot to instantly put it back on!

Offending many conservatives like your self and many conservatives Who refuse to wear a mask to begin with

But seems You canít see the Irony

In you Faux outrage

Former President Donald Trump on Tuesday released a statement criticizing Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., for "abandoning her former country," as a child and repeating a conspiracy theory that her ex-husband is her brother.

"Congresswoman Ilhan Omar should apologize for marrying her brother, committing large-scale immigration and election fraud,


Let me guess Nothing xenophobic or islamophobic in that statement just the facts LOL

as we said, they have no sense of humor, and for sure zero ability to laugh at themselves.

you think that. doesnít mean anyone else does.

ron desantis and dan crenshaw have degrees from harvard, and both use that phrase with humor.

itís hysterical. the crowd was obviously chanting one thing, and the reporter ( quite symbolic of the entire media) came to the defense of biden and insisted they were saying something else. itís a riot.

you want the entire media to
serve as the public relations department of the DNC, fine. we get to laugh about it.

Trumplicans never measured his success by what he did for them, they measured by what he did AGAINST people they don't like.
That's why they see him as being "successful" and why they will never abandon him.
His tormenting of "the others" sustains them.

Deplorable isn't it.

i measure trumps success in terms of things he did to help everyone - tax cuts, net energy independence, ridiculously low unemployment ( especially minorities), increased funding for black schools, creation of economic opportunity zones in our cities, tax cuts, keeping us safe

because iím not a liberal, i can also measure his failures in terms of things he didnít do that would have helped us all, like lack of improving health insurance, lack of building the wall, not putting down riots in the summer of 2020. i donít have to pretend he had no failures. he had some
doozies.

That is exactly right. If the right thinks they can "own" someone they are happy.

Deplorable seems to be the perfect word for today's R party.

Swami Pete preaches to the cult.

And in sotto voce they religiously reply the mantra --"That is exactly right. If the right thinks they can 'own' someone they are happy. Deplorable seems to be the perfect word for today's R party."

Ommmmm . . . . . . alleluia alleluia alleluia . . . do not fear! Swami Pete will save us from the devil Trump! Halleluja!

i fished a ton this year, , if you were referring to me.

and i think itís funny that someone who clearly thinks that insulting people is devoid of class, is comfortable referring to everyone who disagrees with him, as deplorable. so insults are only ok when you do it.

get over yourself Paul, you like to hurl insults as much as anyone.

Seems some here fail to grasp whoís actually In control of the GOP.
And itís Trump

Ps the majority of Conservatives have no sense of humor and never have Ö. Hence their love for nicknames itís retro for them it reminds them of their time on the play ground

Everybody. Is laughing? It must be crowed in that bubble you inhabitÖ.

Whatís amusing is the people who are the most outrage about Biden without a mask for a minute

Are the ones who refuse to wear them or cry endlessly about wearing one or insist they donít work..

Thatís not hypocritical itís just moronic

And if you need to criticize Biden for not wearing a mask. you stink of frivolous desperation .

itís stupid to believe that, for sure.

stacey abrams, who claims she was robbed of an election victory, is pretty visible and influential
in the democratic party. if fake, baseless claims of
election fraud are deplorable, why havenít the democrats cast her off? guy canít embrace those who make fake claims of cheating, and chastise those in the other side who do the same thing Paul. Iím not saying stacey abrams is trump, but she shows up in a lot of lefty circles, and nobody ever asks her to stop making false claims of fraud. as always, itís ok when democrats do it.

the democrats are trying to convince america that cops are hell bent on assassinating blacks. pretty deplorable, wouldnít you say?

iím not saying there arenít republicans who are repugnant. of course there are. but i can give you as many examples as youíd like, of democrats being equally repugnant.

She's not making fake, baseless claims of election fraud. She said the election wasn't fair. Her opponent, who as secretary of state at the time managed elections, refused to recuse himself and instead ordered a massive purge of voter rolls after his announcement to run and cancelled pending voter registrations mostly impacting black people a month before the election. This is well established fact.

Doesn't mean she would have won but Kemp's behavior was a serious conflict of interest and I believe a judge ruled some of his office's actions were illegal.

There has to be some % that are not justified?

Certainly not 75% or whatever high % it is.

And I could care less how much you fish other than if you like to fish, it is too bad you (or anyone else) doesn't get out more.

sure some cop shootings arenít justified. but itís a very low %. and thatís not what gets reported, thatís not what BLM believes or says. You donít think democrats are throwing cops under the bus for political gain? ,
