A reminder that Rove is advising IMPOTUS*’ or his campaign of death. More “flooding the zone” so we ignore the cray-cray at the White House.
So Mitch McConnell said Pres. Obama Ã¢ÂÂshould have kept his mouth shutÃ¢ÂÂ and now Karl Rove called his commencement talk a Ã¢ÂÂpolitical drive-by shootingÃ¢ÂÂ and not appropriate. As if after Trump they can demand etiquette. As if the racial subtext isnÃ¢ÂÂt plain as day.— Steven Beschloss (@StevenBeschloss) May 18, 2020
Darn all those slander suits
Ã¢ÂÂIt is so unseemly for a former president to take the virtual commencement ceremony for a series of historically black colleges and universities and turn it into a political drive-by shooting,Ã¢ÂÂ Rove said. https://t.co/OPxnVy1pCZ

Former White House strategist Karl Rove on Monday accused former President Obama of a “political drive-by shooting” after Obama criticized the federal response to the coronavirus pandemic in a virtual commencement speech Saturday.
“It is so unseemly for a former president to take the virtual commencement ceremony for a series of historically black colleges and universities and turn it into a political drive-by shooting,” Rove said Monday on “Fox & Friends.”
“This is a moment where these young graduates could be inspired to a life of service, to recognize that life is going to bring challenges and how we handle the challenges is going to demonstrate our character. There are lots of positive messages that the former president could have delivered,” Rove added, accusing him of “slandering” President Trump and Vice President Pence.
Wonder if Karl Rove finds this Ã¢ÂÂunseemlyÃ¢ÂÂ https://t.co/waVK5Mdfn9

Karl Rove engineered a push poll during the 2000 SC primary that asked voters if they would be less likely to vote for McCain if they knew he had an illegitimate black child. He knew this attack would work because the McCainÃ¢ÂÂs 9-year-old daughter Bridget was from Bangladesh https://t.co/xTwYSuK92d

Do you know how innocent you have to be for Bill Barr to decline to do TrumpÃ¢ÂÂs bidding and pretend to investigate you? https://t.co/1GIfDeZ1O6

speaking of prophylactic:
President Trump says he has been taking hydroxychloroquine and zinc for the last two weeks.
“I take it,” he said. “So far, I seem to be OK.”

According to this Rand report (pre-2016 election), the four characteristics of Russian propaganda are that it's (a) multichannel, (b) rapid and nonstop, (c) not committed to objective reality; and (d) not committed to consistency. It's now the GOP model.https://t.co/u50h0V6cmx
