Sen. John Cornyn’s utter spinelessness in the face of another Trumpian stunt was on full display today. Cornyn defended the use of tear gas and truncheons to clear the peaceful protesters in front of the White House yesterday so that Donald “Bunker Boy” Trump could have his photo op with “a Bible” in front of a church whose priest and bishop later denounced his actions.
Claiming that it was “for security purposes” Cornyn argued that BBT had the right to order tear gassing and forcible removal of protesters. Cornyn claims that the protesters were asked to clear “but refused to do so.” Notably, the 7 pm curfew was to kick in just a few minutes after Bunker Boy unleashed his shock troops on American citizens exercising their right to peaceably assemble. But Trump is too important to wait a couple of minutes.
Cornyn then played the ultimate Trump card – going after the press. According to Cornyn, the media is “never going to find any good or any positive development in anything.” Well Sen. Cornyn (Scumbag – TX), Red is looking hard to find the positive in using violent methods against peaceful protesters so that Bunker Boy can try to shed his cowardly image by walking across the street under an absurd amount of security to waive “a Bible” in front of the cameras. A Bible that he probably could not quote a single word from and surely has never read unless forced to.
It is painfully obvious that Bunker Boy prefers groveling bootlicks and Cornyn is willing to lick long and hard. How is the taste of leather John? Please vote this embarrassment out of office in November.
Biden for President put out its preliminary game plan map showing Texas as a Battleground State in November. Biden does not need to win Texas to get to 270. The same is not true for Trump. There is almost no path to an electoral college win for the Reality TV Show Joke of a President if he loses Texas.
Red doubts that Texas is really in play. But if Trump has to divert resources early in the game to Texas, then he is weaker everywhere else where the fight is on.
Right now Red’s best prediction from the map above is:
Biden wins Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, N. Carolina, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
Trump wins Georgia, Ohio, Texas and Wisconsin.
Maine gets split.
Red is probably wrong about N. Carolina and possibly Iowa.
Current polling indicates that the Lone Star State is in play for November. As reported by the Dallas Morning News – not exactly a bastion of left-wing reporting – Trumph – the Insult Comic President and Joe Biden are in a statistical deadheat.
A new Dallas Morning News/University of Texas at Tyler poll shows that Trump and Biden are backed by 43% of poll respondents, with 5% opting for “other” candidates and only 9% undecided. Trump’s overall approval rating was 45%.
Red really will have to engage in some willing suspension of disbelief before he buys into the notion that Uncle Joe has a chance to carry Texas. But if that well-below 50% approval rating holds, Trump’s reality TV show joke of a Presidency is in serious trouble. If this polling is accurate and holds through the summer, then Trump absolutely must divert some of his massive campaign war chest to Texas – a state he must win to prevail in 2020. The result will be less time and resources to devote to the other “Battleground States” that are also critical to Trump being able to stay in office and out of the pokey.
They were fake polls (you know the ones I previously claimed did not exist – well they actually exist but since they don’t look very good they must be fake under the irrefutable formula: Makes me look bad = Fake!!) that were released by somebody (my treasonous paid pollsters apparently) that is — it’s ridiculous. They’re giving out phony polls (phony, fake, whatever – I would consult a thesaurus if I knew what that was). These are polls (that we have (yeah, the ones that previously did not exist), that nobody saw (like my tax returns). We do very little polling (just a daily poll or two – three on the weekends) because I’m not a huge believer in polling (except that Rasmussen fellow who is almost always wrong)… But we have some internal polling (bigly strong within the family)— very little — and it’s unbelievably strong (mostly because it’s unbelievable). The strongest I’ve ever been is exactly today (because you know – once a con man, always a con man).
