Trump Predicts “Big Win” But Admits He's Losing

Two stories picked up from Political Wire this morning: Trump predicts 'big' win in November, pointing to 'silent majority' Trump admits it: He's losing This is not quite the contradiction it seems (close, though). Trump has never in his life had to confront reality in a way that he couldn’t find a way to wiggle…

Ivanka probably won't get to be POTUS, either… #ByeIvanka

Recalling that Jarvanka had the temerity to have a conversation in which they discussed the order in which they would serve as POTUS, Ivanka won’t be giving the Wichita State University commencement address. Ivanka Trump called out “cancel culture” Friday night after plans for her to give a virtual commencement speech were canceled. Wichita State…

Jared of-all-trades, son-in-law of one

Jared Kushner’s Air Bridge may have worked to not only expedite delivery of PPE, but also failed to deliver by perhaps hoarding an as yet unaccounted amount of PPE materiel. Slender Man made Air Bridge more like DoorDash. There is a 100 percent chance Kushner watched every episode of Silicon Valley without realizing it was satire pic.twitter.com/yzSlguo6YD…

Slender Man's pizza delivery – was Air Bridge more like DoorDash

Jared Kushner’s Air Bridge may have worked to not only expedite delivery of PPE, but also failed to deliver by hoarding an as yet unaccounted amount of PPE materiel. Trump has been called a “day-trader” and the margin-businesses popular with venture capitalists excites those risk seekers playing with other people’s money. Kusher’s tasks always had some…

Slender Man at warp speed: Kushner now in charge of vaccines

There’s only six months left in ‘Trump Time’, so the continuum is still safe, so far. Profiteering and looting might be less safe in the interim.

Trump again tried for free live campaign coverage – Media didn't take the bait

The recession has begun, and happy talk continues with the “Mission Accomplished” statement by Kushner to Fox and Friends.

They called it a roundtable because unlike yesterday it was in a different WH room, sitting around a…

“Expert-on-everything” Kushner Behind Trump's Call to End Shelter-in-Place

Vanity Fair is reporting that one reason Trump is talking about lifting the “shelter-in-place” orders is that Kushner is advising him to: Trump’s view that he can ignore Fauci’s opinion may be influenced by advice he’s getting from Jared Kushner, whose outside-the-box efforts have often rankled those in charge of managing the crisis. According to…

for Trump's still unbuilt wall, he went to Jared

The flailing Trump presidency continues on its inept trajectory. Jared will be blamed when the wall is not built. President Trump has put his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, in charge of overseeing the construction of the border wall, The Washington Post reported Monday. Current and former administration officials told the Post that Kushner has taken the lead on the wall…

Jarvanka is at Individual-1's side, because nepotism has too many syllables

The biggest leaker of them all: Jarvanka will throw all kinds of folks under the bus. Jarvanka thinks that because Barr prevented the Mueller report from reaching them, that they won’t at some moment be held accountable in the aftermath of the Trump regime’s attempt to destroy US democracy.  They remain a target of opportunity. But…
