It's only halfway through Christmas week and Donald Trump has already vetoed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), threatened to do the same to the Consolidated Appropriations Act (which contains COVID relief, as well as all twelve federal spending bills), and then jetted off to Mar-a-Lago on the taxpayer's dime (actually 34 million dimes).

In the midst of the surging coronavirus pandemic, that is worse now that at any time since it first appeared, Trump has devoted his time to an increasingly ludicrous and futile campaign to “prove” that he actually won the 2020 presidential election by a landslide. The only thing he's missing is the proof. But that hasn't stopped him from whining petulantly and repeatedly posting false claims of election fraud. His conspiracy theories have even gotten Fox News and other Trump-fluffing “news” outlets into legal trouble.
As Trump struggles impotently to advance his egomaniacal march to an imaginary victory, his imbecile spawn can't help chiming in with what he thinks is helpful and brilliant blathering. On Christmas Eve morning, Don Jr tweeted…
You've gotta hand it to him. When little Donnie is right, he's still so painfully wrong. Trumpette is retweeting Lance Gooden, a Republican member of Congress from Texas. Gooden's tweet begins with a flagrant misstatement of fact. The foreign aid for “democracy in Venezuela” is only $33 million, not billion. But his more significant mistake is his suggestion that there should be funds in the Omnibus bill “to investigate the massive claims of voter fraud” for which there is zero evidence. The Trump forces have lost nearly sixty lawsuits because of their inability support their wild allegations with facts.
Boy Don, however, was impressed with Gooden's moronic babbling. But the comment he attached to it is inadvertently appropriate. Any progressive Democrat could have said the very same thing. The bull$h!t (from the GOP and the Trump family) does seem to go on endlessly. That's partly because the Trump Brigades are so shamelessly lying about the bill.
To begin with, in Trump's self-serving announcement of opposition to the bill he says it's because the COVID relief is too stingy at $600.00. He proposed $2,000.00. Which is what many Democrats proposed months ago, but were met with nothing but obstruction by Republicans in Congress. Throughout that debate Trump was conspicuously silent. Now he wants to take credit for the Democratic position.
What's more, Trump's complaints about the foreign aid in the bill are disingenuous at best, considering that the aid is nearly identical to what he asked for in his own budget. The Republicans in Congress know this, but are too cowardly – and too far up Trump's asinine excuse making – to admit it. They are scared of the Trump Cult of Personality as demonstrated in a recent poll finding that “In the case of a disagreement between Trump and Republicans in Congress, 52% of Republican and Republican-leaning independent voters say they’d be more likely to support Trump.” That's actually down from 61% in an August poll, but still a majority.
President CHAOS is inspiring this sort of blind and dangerous adulation. He's got people like Newt Gingrich declaring that he won’t accept President-elect Joe Biden as president. And in a radical departure from reality, he rewrote Trump's disastrous coronavirus history saying that Trump “did literally everything top scientists instructed.” Really? Does anyone remember when top scientists instructed people to forgo face masks, inject bleach, gather closely in large crowds, expect the virous to disappear by Easter, or advocate herd immunity?
Furthermore, when Roy Blunt, the chairman of the Congressional Republican Policy Committee, was asked about the next moves for Congress and Trump on COVID relief, he replied “I have no idea what he plans to do. We were assured that the President would sign the bill.” This was right after House Democrats tried to pass an amendment to raise the relief amount to $2,000.00 by unanimous consent, but were stopped by Republicans. Nancy Pelosi then sent a message to Trump saying that “If the President is serious about the $2,000 direct payments, he must call on House Republicans to end their obstruction.”
So who can argue with Spawn Don when he says that “The bull$h!t never ends”? Everything that he and his rapidly deteriorating, mental basket case father do and say affirms that analysis. It's just too bad that he doesn't understand what he's saying himself.
UPDATE: And as if to affirm his flunky son, Trump posts a tweet that is emblematic of never ending bull$h!t:
