Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Beto Mania Update: A guy calling himself “Michael Falotico” (it may be his real name, but you just never know on social media these days) on Twitter responded to my “Day of Beto” yesterday by saying “Yes, I agree with you that Beto will be the Democrats’ nominee for President in 2020. I may differ with you, however, in that I think he could win the whole thing, i.e., get elected President.”
Well, we don’t differ at all, Michael. Sitting here almost two years prior to Election Day 2020, I also think Beto will be the Dem nominee and “could” well win the general election to become the 46th president of the United States. Admittedly, the odds are against all of that happening for our favorite fake Hispanic Texan, but hey, stranger things have happened – just happened in 2016, in fact, and in 2008 before that.
2008 is especially relevant where Irish Bob is concerned. As I told an audience a few weeks ago, there is no doubt that many national Democrat honchos and money handlers see Irish Bob as their next Barack Obama: A young, handsome, slick talker who does well on TV and can get the ignorant masses riled up, a human blank slate who looks good in a suit onto which all of their party’s various agitated factions can project their fondest dreams. Other than his skin color and the fact that there is no doubt he was born in the United States of America, Irish Bob is in fact a virtual Obama clone.
Yes, O’Rourke is a completely unqualified socialist crackpot. But Irish Bob is a real threat here, precisely because the Democrats already proved in 2008 that the American public can be brainwashed into accepting a completely unqualified socialist crackpot to lead the country down the road to ruin.
So yeah, he “could” win it all, and despite my fondness for making fun of him (it’s low-hanging fruit, I know, but I have no shame in that regard) I do take the prospect of him very seriously. President Trump and all other Republicans should do the same.
Speaking of President Donald J. Trump… – Make no mistake about it, despite the all-fake-all-the-time reporting all over the news media about his live-televised dust up with San Fran Nan and Chuck Schumer in the Oval Office, the President pummeled his Democrat opponents. All you have to do is look at the body language from the two Democrats as the thing went on to know that.
Schumer was so intimidated that he couldn’t look the President in the eye the entire time. Pelosi was so flustered she had a hard time remembering which branch of government she represented.
Meanwhile, the President got exactly what he wanted:
- Both Pelosi and Schumer begging him to shoo the leering press out of the room;
- Both Pelosi and Schumer railing against doing anything effective to improve border security; and
- Trump promising to shut down 14% of the federal government if he doesn’t get significant funding for the border wall in a government funding bill that must be passed by December 21.
That third point had #NeverTrump dimwits like A.B. Stoddard and Bill Kristol cackling that Trump had somehow “lost” in this debate, which simply proves that she and her fellow dimwits still have learned absolutely nothing about the current President. Their thesis is that now Trump will get blamed for any government shutdown and oh, my, isn’t that terrible for him.
Well, hell, Trump couldn’t care less about that. The media blames him for everything that happens in any event – what else would be new in that scenario? If you’re the President, might as well embrace that deal and own it.
The spectacle of Pelosi and Schumer begging the President to take the discussion behind closed doors just proves yet again that the Democrats care nothing about government transparency. Trump revels in this stuff, and is thrilled to be the one guy sitting in that room advocating for the need for increased border security, which is a winning issue for the Republicans, not the Democrats.
Stuff like what happened in the Oval Office yesterday is exactly why Trump won in the first place. He wasn’t put in that job to have nice, polite discourse with swamp-dwelling snakes like Pelosi and Schumer behind closed doors. He was put in that job to break all the china, stain all the carpets and color all the walls with crayons in the D.C. Establishment’s comfortable abode.
Yesterday was a very good day for Donald Trump. Don’t let the fake news media kid you otherwise.
My only question is, why was that Mike Pence mannequin sitting in that other chair?
In 17 minutes, did not manage to utter a word. What good is he?

In all seriousness, that’s a great piece by Mollie Hemingway. Go spend 8 minutes reading it this morning – you’ll be better informed and glad you spent the time.
