What is it With Democrats and Their Masks?

The Evening Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Works Overtime)

What is it about Democrats and masks? – Given that they literally created and funded the domestic terrorist group Antifa, you would think these people would be experts on wearing masks in public. But you would be wrong in thinking that.

Take a look at Houston Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee:

I mean, c’mon, she doesn’t have an abused staffer who has enough guts to risk being slapped, fired or screamed at by informing her that the mask only works if it covers both your mouth and nose?

Obviously not.

Then, there’s Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who went out of his way to inform the entirety of the corrupt news media that he would be wearing a mask when in public:

Again, dude, it doesn’t work that way. None of this works the way you think it does.

Then there was this fiasco yesterday from Virginia Governor Ralph KKK Blackface Northam:

Hey, at least he stayed within his personal tradition – if you can’t wear blackface, a black mask is a decent substitute for any overt racist Democrat governor.

Then there’s this dude – he isn’t wearing a “mask” per se, but he is most definitely a loyal Democrat voter:

Here’s a group of Democrats in front of the U.S. Capitol Building bearing a statue of their favorite masked idol:

They are what the corrupt media invariably refers to as “peaceful demonstrators.” Because, of course they are.

If this mask-wearing guy lived in America he’d definitely be a Democrat:

Oh, hey, and speaking of the ChiComs, CNN has a new corporate flag:

That’s all I can take for now. Be careful.

Trump Needs to Stop Wasting the Nation’s Time With Hacks Like Acosta and Alcindor

The Evening Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

After being absent for much of the last two weeks, Jim Acosta reappeared at today’s Coronavirus Task Force press conference. As he always does, Acosta failed to ask anything relevant, instead attempting to engage the President of the United States in a debate.

He failed miserably. Here’s the clip – watch as Trump brutalizes the preening little peacock and the airport-based CNN:

Shortly later, the President chose to call on PBS’s Yamichi Alcindor, who, like Acosta, chose to waste everyone in America’s time yet again with another failed “gotcha” question about coronavirus testing. After lambasting her one more time for almost a full minute, the President ended the event.

Now, obviously, the President likes to spar with raging morons like these two because it invariably improves his standing among his loyal base of voters. I don’t blame him – these two dim bulbs are very easy targets and richly deserve everything he dishes out. But the reality is that it has become a tiresome exercise, one that wastes the entire country’s time, especially in the context of these daily updates during which so much actual important information is delivered to the public.

The President and his communications staff need to stop giving these two – or anyone else CNN sends to the updates – face time. The country has seen quite enough of both of them, and their inevitable grandstanding, while it provides the President great opportunities to slam them and their corrupt media operations, has become such a distraction that it takes away from the substance of the events.

Sunday was a great example: At that update, the President announced major news, the extension of the federal stay-at-home and social distancing guidelines all the way through the end of April. Yet, the main moment that the media obsessed on came when the President confronted the execrable Alcindor.

This needs to stop. It is counterproductive for the President, and it is counterproductive for the nation. If they cannot conform themselves to some semblance of journalistic integrity at these events, then the President should simply refuse to recognize them.

Enough.

That is all.

Corrupt Media Outlets: Damned if They do Cover Trump, Damned if They Don’t

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Just in case you were still laboring under the delusion that CNN and MSNBC are actual “news” organizations, know this: When President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) had to leave his daily Coronavirus Task Force press briefing early yesterday, turning it over to Vice President Mike Pence and doctors Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx, the corrupt reporters for CNN and MSNBC also left.

What does that tell you? It tells you that CNN and MSNBC view their sole purpose for covering those events as an effort to cause some controversy involving the President in their neverending efforts to damage him personally. Their corrupt reporters are not there to hear from the experts; they aren’t there to gather real-time information about the China Virus pandemic so that they can convey it to their viewers; they are are there with a single, overarching goal in mind, which is to find a way to damage the President of the United States, who is himself focused on steering a nation of 339 million people through a major crisis.

Think about it: These same two corrupt media outlets went nuts earlier this week when Dr. Fauci was not present for 3 of the updates over a span of 5 days. They ran story after story and convened TV panel after TV panel claiming Fauci was being unfairly excluded from the events because he had disagreed with the President on the potential of hydorxychloroquine as a coronavirus treatment.

But Dr. Fauci chastised reporters on Sunday and Monday for attempting to drive a wedge between him and the President, stating that it was “not helpful” and demanding that they stop. Since he did that, these utterly corrupt media outlets suddenly have no interest in hearing from the guy they were portraying as the second coming of Mother Teresa and Albert Einstein not even a week ago.

If he isn’t useful in creating negative “news” about the President, he isn’t useful to them, period.

This pattern is certainly not limited to CNN and MSNBC – they are simply the most blatant about their bias and corruption, parading those traits out there on the air and websites every day like figurative badges of honor. It really applies to all the major networks, newspapers and magazines in the country – even to Fox News, although to a somewhat lesser extent.

We hear a lot of conservative voices complaining about the idiotic behavior of the reporters at these daily updates, but I think that is actually a very good thing for our country. As the New York Post reported yesterday, these events are attracting huge ratings, serving both as substitutes for the massive rallies the President is unable to hold during this crisis and as a window for the public to view the utterly irresponsible and unhinged behavior of the press corps.

From that New York Post article:

President Trump’s daily White House coronavirus briefings are a ratings hit.

The president, who has taken the lead in the task force’s daily updates to the nation, has attracted an average audience of about 8.5 million viewers on cable news — about the number of viewers who watched the season finale of “The Bachelor,” The New York Times reported on Wednesday, citing Nielsen numbers.

And as the outbreak continues to surge across the country and more Americans abide by shelter-in-place orders in a number of states, the viewership is increasing.

Monday’s briefing drew 12.2 million people on CNN, MSNBC and Fox News, ratings similar to those of “Monday Night Football.”

Fox News has benefited from the briefings, with the cable network attracting 6.2 million viewers on Monday, numbers on par with popular prime-time shows.

The newspaper said millions more are watching on the traditional networks — ABC, CBS and NBC, as well as online — but they offer less reliable numbers than the cable stations because of the way Nielsen ratings are measured.

[End]

So, millions of Americans – especially younger ones – are really getting their first taste of exactly how idiotic and overwrought the White House press corps really is, thanks to these daily briefings. At the same time, they are also getting a big dose of the real Donald Trump, coming to them live on their TV screens without any filter  from corrupt and biased talking heads.

The corrupt media organizations began to wake up to this monster they have helped to create last week, when polls showing high public approval for the President’s handling of the crisis began to come out. There is so much concern over this phenomenon now in Democrat/media propaganda land that we have seen a steady drumbeat of op/eds advocating for the TV outlets to actually stop covering the updates live in recent days.

But that’s a big problem: These updates have now become ‘must-see TV’ in tens of millions of homes across America, as people going stir crazy from being shut-in hunger for any news that might give them an idea of when their sheltering-in-place might come to a merciful end.

If the corrupt TV outlets now move to deny them this form of daily entertainment, they face a potential backlash that could be severe. It would be like denying people their daily dose of Wheel of Fortune.

It’s a real conundrum.

The simple reality is this: President Trump has broken the corrupt news media, likely forever. He has now put them in a spot in which they are damned if they do cover these daily updates, and damned if they stop covering them. Given the sorry conduct of these corrupt media outlets over the last four years, that is a very just reward.

That is all.

No Surprise Here: DNC/CNN Rig Debate Format for Quid Pro Joe

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

The old geezers get to sit now. – Catering to every whim of their chosen candidate, the DNC and CNN announced on Sunday that tired, obviously declining Quid Pro Joe Biden will get his wish for the next Democrat debate later this week. He and his fellow, much healthier septuagenarian, Bernie Sanders, will be seated at a table with the moderators.

The debate, which oddly takes place on Sunday night, will present a radically changed format from previous debates at which all the candidates stood at podiums for two hours. For the remaining “hey you kids, get off my lawn!” brigade of candidates, doing that became a test of endurance that Sanders was perfectly willing to continue but Biden was obviously anxious to end.

From a report by Politico on the matter:

Bernie Sanders wants to stand up at the next debate — and his campaign is accusing Joe Biden of wanting to sit down.

After a private call Friday with CNN, which is moderating the March 15 debate with the Democratic National Committee, Sanders’ team balked at a new proposed format for debate, saying it gives his opponent Biden too much of a break in their first one-on-one face-off. Biden’s camp denied that it was pressing for a sit-down debate.

“Why does Joe Biden not want to stand toe-to-toe with Sen. Sanders on the debate stage March 15 and have an opportunity to defend his record and articulate his vision for the future?” asked Jeff Weaver, Sanders’ senior adviser.

Biden’s campaign and the DNC said the format for the debate was decided by the party and CNN. The news network declined to comment and referred questions to the DNC.

“We will participate in whatever debate CNN chooses to stage: standing, sitting, at podiums, or in a town hall,” Biden’s deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield said. “The problem for the Sanders campaign is not the staging of the debate, but rather, the weakness of Sen. Sanders’ record and ideas.”

There’s no secret what’s happening here: The standing format had Biden visibly tiring towards the end of the last debate. During the last 40 minutes or so, he repeatedly lashed out at the moderators and fellow candidates, and struggled to form sentences. There is a reason why his standard campaign stump speech, during which he roams around a stage before a tiny audience, lasts no more than 15 minutes.

Also catering to Biden’s needs, the setting will be similar to one of his campaign events, with a stage surrounded by a Biden-like small audience. Even better for Biden, the format will include questions from the attendees, which in Democrat debates tend to consist mainly of sophomoric iterations of “how much of other people’s money are you planning to give to me and my family after you’re elected?” or “how many trillions of our grandchildren’s dollars are you willing to throw away on AOC’s climate change pipe dreams?”

Including audience questions helps to break up the normal flow of a debate, and allows Biden to avoid a lot of head-to-head exchanges of ideas with The Commie and just talk about all the mythical things he did during the “Obiden/Bama” administration, as he called it on Saturday.

Changing the qualification rules in order to exclude Tulsi Gabbard – the only remaining woman/minority candidate in the race – from this debate also works in Biden’s favor. Gabbard is no friend of the Party’s ruling class, and already effectively killed the candidacy of Kamala Harris in a debate last fall. Eliminating her helps to clear the minefield for Creepy Uncle Joe.

Thus, we see the DNC and its toadies at CNN taking no chances with their plan to literally carry the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator across the finish line to the party’s nomination. With primaries in the delegate-rich states of Florida, Illinois, Ohio and Arizona taking place just two days later, a big Biden breakdown on-stage in this debate could shift the race right back in The Commie’s favor. Having Quid Pro Joe comfortably seated at a table significantly reduces the prospects for disaster.

With polling data now trending strongly in his favor, Biden now has a clearly achievable path to being able to win the nomination on the first ballot in Milwaukee. Somewhere, President Donald Trump is celebrating.

That is all.

The Corrupt American Media Shames Itself Yet Again

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

You can’t trust MSNBC or the New York Times to do the maths. – Seriously, you could never make this stuff up, folks.

Understand that both of these corrupt “journalists” spent a good deal of time preparing for this moment. They prepared actual talking points for it. Both certainly were assisted by half a dozen or more assistants, fact-checkers, and talking points monkeys.

Understand that this didn’t just happen on the spur of the moment, and you understand exactly how utterly stupid the nation’s population of corrupt journalists truly is as a group.

Speaking of utterly stupid corrupt fake journalists, check out this tweet from the execrable hack, Ana Navarro, a paid CNN contributor:

Of course, Jeff Sessions is from Alabama, not Arkansas. But hey, at least she knew it was one of those “A” states out there in Flyover Country, so her peers in the corrupt news media would say she did great. They like to grade themselves on a very steep curve.

The “it’s all sexism and misogyny” excuse rears its ugly head again. – Here’s a panel of dimwitted talking heads on MSNBC yesterday, whining about how the failure of the lifelong fraud Lieawatha to gain traction in the Democrat Party nominating race means America is all, like, sexist and like, misogynistic and stuff, or something:

Note that at least three of those five nitwits pretend to be working journalists, including the host, who is really just a turncoat former Bushie. Note also that none of them has the presence of mind to realize that all this sexism and misogyny they’re talking about, if it actually does exist, comes straight from the DEMOCRAT PARTY VOTER BASE. This would be the very same Democrat voter base that these very same nitwits regularly portray as being so open-minded, diverse and vastly superior to the voter base of the GOP.

This is not rocket science, is it? Seriously, is this hard? Am I missing something here? If I am, I truly do want to know what it is.

And now for some comic relief…: Hey, look, CBS This Morning is so desperate for rating that it has apparently signed Austin Powers to a new contributor agreement.

GOLO or Gabby Adventure Time Now: School, Zorro, 돌, and REDFACE

 

Ok, sorry. Just having a little fun there.

Back to the whole “sexism” and Fauxcahontas thing… – The cretins who run The Hill published this piece yesterday:

Here’s the thing, ladies and corrupt journalists pushing this false narrative:

TULSI. GABBARD. IS. STILL. A. CANDIDATE.

She really is a woman – seriously, she serves in the Army Reserves, it’s been verified. Check it out:

Tulsi Gabbard ‘regrets’ her past anti-gay activism as she prepares for a presidential race ...

See? She’s even waving at you, trying to get your attention.

Why is she waving in a desperate attempt to get your attention, you ask? It could be because she, a verified, actual lady with all the requisite lady parts, has had a real hard timing getting to 2% support in the polls of DEMOCRAT VOTERS in this campaign. Seems that all you liberals out there who wail and scream and whine incessantly about the nation’s aching need to have a woman, any woman, elected to the presidency for the simple fact that she is a woman, have utterly and completely failed to support this particular woman.

Today, she is the last woman standing in presidential politics for 2020, and I guaran-damn-tee you we will not see anyone in our corrupt news media wailing and screaming and incessantly whining about the need for all you liberals out there to now support Tulsi Gabbard over the two old geezers she’s left running against.

So, spare us all the drama. Please.

Democrat Panic: Brazile tells McDaniel to “Go to hell!”

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Fox News really needs to reconsider who it puts on its air. – Illustrating the state of abject panic among the Democrat Party poobahs, former DNC Chair and current Fox News paid contributor Donna Brazile told current RNC Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel to “go to hell” live on air this morning:

After telling McDaniel to “stay the hell out of our race!” repeatedly, Brazile then outright told the devout Mormon to “go to hell” not once, but twice. Brazile then resorted to the despicably tiresome canard that any criticism of the DNC process by non-Democrats amounts to the use of “Russian talkin’ points!” because of course she did.

*sigh*

Brazile’s unhinged outburst at McDaniel only serves to further demonstrate the state of outright panic the leaders of the Democrat Party find themselves today, as voters go to the polls in the crucial Super Tuesday primary contests. With 40% of the total convention delegates up for grabs in 14 states, Democrat system riggers like Brazile are sitting on pins and needles in anticipation of polls closing this evening.

Regarding Brazile’s absurd claims that nobody in the Democrat Party is attempting to rig things against Bernie Sanders: Remember that Brazile played a significant role in rigging the process against The Commie in 2016, even to the point of feeding debate questions to the Pantsuit Princess in advance. She is a longtime tool of the Clintons whose word cannot be trusted in any way, shape or form.

For Fox News management, today’s outburst by Brazile should create internal discussions over whether or not to continue with her contributor deal. There is no question whatsoever that any Republican who engaged in the use of similarly aggressive language towards any Democrat would be immediately banned by CNN or MSNBC.

There is no reason why Fox News should hold itself and its contributors to lower standards than those two slipshod outfits.

P.S.: Just last Thursday, Sean Hannity gave Brazile a full hour on his “tick-tock” radio show to expound on what a wonderful Christian she claims to be. If you’re a real Christian, the words “go to hell” should never be in your heart or come out of your mouth towards anyone.

What a day.

Tapper Debunks NYTimes Russia Collusion Narrative-Setter

Today’s Campaign Update, Part III (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Well, you don’t see this very often – the two fakest corrupt news outlets in America fighting over a narrative. It’s going to drive their Democrat masters crazy.

Not even 24 hours after the New York Times puts out a despicably fake piece trying to revive the whole Russia Collusion narrative, CNN’s Fake Jake Tapper, of all people, issues a thread on Twitter debunking the whole thing. Here is the text of Tapper’s tweets:

A national security official I know and trust pushes back on the way the briefing/ODNI story is being told, and others with firsthand knowledge agree with his assessment.

2/ “What’s been articulated in the news is that the intelligence community has concluded that the Russians are trying to help Trump again. But the intelligence doesn’t say that,” the official says…

3/ “The problem is Shelby” — Pierson, the elections threats executive in the intelligence community — “said they developed a preference for Trump. A more reasonable interpretation of the intelligence is not that they have a preference, it’s a step short of that….

4/ “It’s more that they understand the president is someone they can work with, he’s a dealmaker. But not that they prefer him over Sanders or Buttigieg or anyone else. So it may have been mischaracterized by Shelby” at the House Intel briefing last week…

5/ “And by the way,” the official says, “both Democrats and Republicans were challenging this at the briefing.” Then there’s the matter of the tense meeting between President Trump and erstwhile Acting Director of National Intelligence Admiral Maguire…

6/ “The President was upset that he had to hear about an intelligence conclusion from a Member of the House Republicans rather than from the intelligence community. So he was out of joint with Maguire on that process.”

7/ None of this disputes that Trump desires to replace those who have Intel expertise with partisan loyalists, or dismisses the larger issues and concerns about Russia and how the president seeks help from abroad. Just that there seems to be more to this particular story.

8/ ALSO none of this disputes that the Russians (and others) are attempting to interfere in the US election again.

Tapper, obviously disappointed to be getting this narrative-debunking information from his apparently legitimate source, naturally feels the need to add those last two tweets to try to keep the fantasy alive, at least to some extent. But it is obvious that what we really have here is a case where the New York Times intentionally and with malice aforethought mis-portrayed what was actually conveyed in this briefing in order to try to damage President Trump’s reputation.

Libel, plain and simple.

Andrew McCabe Isn’t off the Hook Just Yet

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Think about it… – Michael Avenatti is that coke-head guy in “Die Hard” who sits down in front of the head terrorist and says, “Hans, bubby…I can give ‘im to ya.”

Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, sitting, beard and text

Get used to hearing the name “Jensen.” – I really really really hate to quote Andrew Weissmann, but, the former lead prosecutor for American Gestapo Chief, er, ‘special counsel’ Robert Mueller basically confirmed what I told you here after hearing the news that Andrew McCabe would not be prosecuted for lying to investigators: That doesn’t mean that McCabe just gets off scot-free.

As reported by the Washington Examiner, Weissmann told F. Chuck Todd late Friday this:

Andrew Weissmann, a former Justice Department official who was known as Mueller’s “pit bull” during the Russia investigation, said the Justice Department swapped out the “loser case” of Andrew McCabe, who escaped criminal charges on Friday for allegedly lying to investigators about authorizing media disclosures, for a fresh one targeting top former FBI officials, including McCabe, led by Jeffrey Jensen, the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri.

“All they did was swapped out a loser case for starting an investigation that is going to be of Comey, McCabe, Pete Strzok,” Weissmann told MSNBC host Chuck Todd.

The Washington Post also reported – based entirely on anonymous sources, of course – that DOJ lawyers mad their decision not to pursue McCabe after a federal judge who would have heard the case told them that he believed the case had been damaged by all of the President’s commentary on it. Obviously, an Obama appointee.

McCabe, meanwhile, feeling emboldened by Friday’s events, has been all over CNN, where he is a paid contributor. In an interview last night with Anderson Cooper, he and the host had this exchange:

Anchor Anderson Cooper said, “Aside from being understandably anger about all of what you’ve been through, has it been in a way surreal? In the past couple of minutes, while you’ve been on with me, on Fox, there’s a banner font calling you a liar. Did you ever expect in any way to be dealing with anything like this?”

McCabe said, “I spent 21 years in the FBI as the part of an institution that prides itself on fidelity, braver, andy and integrity. And to be removed from that organization and unfairly branded a liar because that was the desired outcome by the president has just been one of the most sickening and demeaning experiences of my life. It’s horrendous. And it is unfortunate that having listened to propaganda like Fox News, there’s, you know, there are many people in this country that will believe that forever.”

Let’s remember that McCabe ADMITTED to lying repeatedly to DOJ investigators about his serial leaking classified information to members of the press. Inspector General Michael Horowitz painstakingly detailed four instances of his lying to those investigators in a report issued in April of last year. We know he also lied repeatedly in his 2017 testimony to congress. These are simply facts on the public record today.

Andrew McCabe is a liar, and that’s really all there is to it.

But the best part of that exchange is calling Fox News a “propaganda” outlet while doing an interview on freaking CNN.

My goodness.

Don Lemon’s Unwitting Gift to Trump Supporters

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

He got a bigger audience from this than he ever gets on his low-rated show. – CNN’s dimwitted, haughty night-time host Don Lemon made actual news over the past two days when he played host to another in a long line of segments ridiculing the average, hard-working Americans who make up the preponderance of President Donald Trump’s support base.

In case you’ve managed to miss it to this point, here’s a clip of the segment in question, which apparently took place on Saturday:

So, this is likely to become the next “deplorables” incident committed by the demented Democrats and their corrupt media toadies. The joker on the right in the clip with Lemon is the detestable hack Rick Wilson, a pretend “conservative” who worked on the … wait for it … Evan McMullin presidential campaign in 2016. He now makes money by being one of CNN’s fake conservative mascots. The clown on the left is some guy named Wajahat Ali, who bills himself on Twitter as an op/ed contributor for the … wait for it … New York Times, and an on-air contributor for CNN. Because of course he is.

Clowns to the left of Lemon, Jokers to the right, there he is, stuck in the middle on national television, ridiculing 63 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump in 2016, and the millions more who have joined his supporter base since. Not really a good look, even for a CNN host with the IQ and character of the average Louisiana swamp nutria.

Lemon apparently got a scolding from his corporate bosses over the segment on Tuesday, after the clip had gone viral Monday night. Which can only be attributed to someone at parent company AT&T fearing that it might not be good for its cellular service or DirecTV customer base for CNN’s on-air [bad] talent to be actively ridiculing half of the American public. Certainly, no one in CNN’s own management gives a damn about such considerations, as demonstrated by the fake news channel’s behavior over the last five years.

Regardless of who in corporate management initiated the action, Lemon obviously spent much of his day on Tuesday with CNN’s HR and communications staff, and came up with a very Clintonian non-apology to recite at the start of his show Tuesday night:

Let’s break that statement down, shall we?

And one final note that I have for you because this is personally important to me to address this, okay? Anyone, ask anyone who knows me, they’ll tell you I don’t believe in belittling people [Ah, the old Clintonian “ask anyone who knows me” dodge. Standard non-apology tactic there.]

— belittling anyone for who they are, what they believe, or where they’re from. [Yet, the clip clearly shows Lemon roaring with laughter, to the point of tears, as his two dimwitted guests belittled millions of ordinary Americans out here in Flyover Country for ‘who they are, what they believe, and where they’re from.’]

During an interview on Saturday night, one of my guests said something that made me laugh and while in the moment I found the joke humorous, and I didn’t catch everything that was said. [Oh, boy, the “I didn’t catch everything that was said” dodge, which is just a slight variation from the “I was misquoted” dodge and the “I was taken out of context” dodge. Again, standard non-apology tactic.]

Just to make this perfectly clear, I was laughing at the joke and not at any group of people.” [And yet, clearly, Don Lemon, Rick Wilson and that Ali guy who nobody’s ever heard of were laughing uproariously at an easily-identified group of people called “Trump supporters.”]

Lemon’s statement – no doubt dictated to him by his AT&T/CNN bosses – was not an apology at all. It was simply more condescension towards a group of millions of Americans he personally hates and who his bosses simply do not value. It was a desperate and insincere act by a haughty, thoughtless jackass whose only real concern is that he doesn’t want his face to be featured in thousands of Trump/Republican campaign ads this Fall.

Well, sorry, Don – too late for that. Any Republican candidate who doesn’t produce a TV ad featuring this clip is a Republican candidate who is probably too dumb to win his or her election.

Matter of fact, Ronna McDaniel and the RNC are already showing candidates how it’s done:

Thanks for the gift, Don.

What comes next? On tonight’s show – or maybe he’ll wait until tomorrow – Lemon will start claiming he is receiving death threats over the clip, a tactic to which Ali already resorted in a Tweet on Tuesday. It’s nonsense, but hey, it’s on the next page of the playbook.

These people hate you and wish you were dead. Never, ever forget that.

That is all.
