Trump's Biggest Whoppers

Recommended Posts

 

y6yTzWn6_bigger.png

The most consequential primary night since Super Tuesday has finally arrived. 9 states and D.C. are voting today. Several of the primaries were originally scheduled for April or May but were postponed.
 
Voting is taking place against the backdrop of racial unrest and violence in U.S. cities coast to coast, as protesters against police misconduct and brutality clash with civil authorities

Those protests and local governments’ countermeasures are also going to interfere with voting procedures, even if the violent protests of the past week taper into less disruptive or destructive demonstrations

Joe Biden will pad his delegate total, but the most closely-watched primaries by far are down the ballot. Here are the races we're watching most closely

Down pointing backhand index

Iowa Senate: Can Democrats build momentum to oust Joni Ernst? Both parties see the prospect of a very competitive reelection campaign for Ernst in what could be the race that decides which party controls the Senate next year.

Iowa 4th District: Will a split field save Steve King? The Iowan with a history of controversial — and sometimes racist — comments faces not just a Dem competitor, but 3 fellow Republicans which could split the vote, giving King a window for victory.

New Mexico 2nd District: Who will win the ugliest primary in America? A race with what one candidate has called a “despicable, untrue and deeply personal attack” has seen lots of outside spending

Indiana 1st District: Nothing opens the political floodgates like a safe congressional seat that comes open after three decades
 
New Mexico 3rd District: Democratic Rep. Ben Ray Luján is seeking a promotion to the Senate, opening his House seat. That race has drawn seven candidates — the most famous of whom is Valerie Plame
 
Montana: The open gov. race appears poised to reorder the state’s political scene. Republicans hope to break Dems’ 16-year lock on the statehouse. Meanwhile, Gianforte’s decision to mount a second bid for gov opens up the at-large congressional seat.

We've got a few more races you should be watching, too. Here's everything you need to know.

Eastern European Amber Alert--

There are reports of a middle-aged Eastern European woman allegedly being held hostage in a residence near 16th and Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington DC.

She has made some statements on Twitter against her will,

 but we can't find her exact location.

The foreign woman was last seen with this old white man, who is smiling in the above photo.

Anyone knowing of her exact whereabouts should please contact the authorities.

If you see her with the old white man, please don't approach her.

It may be dangerous for you to approach her because he has bodyguards with tear gas and rubber bullets.

Authorities are trying to ascertain whether or not she's being held against her own will.

My Admin has done more for the Black Community than any President since Abraham Lincoln. Passed Opportunity Zones with @SenatorTimScott, guaranteed funding for HBCU’s, School Choice, passed Criminal Justice Reform, lowest Black unemployment, poverty, and crime rates in history…AND THE BEST IS YET TO COME!

The teen girl who filmed Floyd’s killing is the "Rosa Parks of her generation," her lawyer tells

Darnella Frazier, 17, was going to the store "and boom" — she witnesses a murder and suffers psychological fallout. She's since relocated.

D.C. had no problems last night. Many arrests. Great job done by all. Overwhelming force. Domination. Likewise, Minneapolis was great (thank you President Trump!).

How often has Trump expressed admiration for various dictators? He really likes their style!

From the pool. Senate Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs Cmte Chair Ron Johnson on if he thought what the President did last night was appropriate. “I didn’t see it,” replied Johnson.

Then Johnson asked, "How'd you know which rock I was under?"

They need better police procedures on choke holds and those being arrested. Two of the incidents involved choking and that should not happen.

Also: 700 members of the 82nd are at Joint Base Andrews and Fort Belvoir. 1,400 more soldiers are ready to be mobilized within an hour. Soldiers are armed and have riot gear.
 
They also were issued bayonets—standard issue but some feel could be inflammatory

It’s not standard issue, bayonets weren’t even handed out when I deployed to Baghdad in 06.
It’s about sending a message.
I was 13F and attached to a RSTA cav platoon.

AP: Trump ordered military aircraft to fly above the nation’s capital Monday night as a "show of force" against demonstrators. Show-of-force missions are designed to intimidate and, in combat zones, warn opposing forces of potential military action if provoked.

I'll say it again:
 
When America was rocked with massive antiwar protests in the wake of the Kent State shooting in 1970, not only were protesters still allowed at the Lincoln Memorial, but President Nixon even made a late-night trip there to talk with them personally.
