About Last Night…

Apparently last night, Hair Füror had another Let’s Burn The Reichstag rally.

“Former President Donald Trump returned to Iowa Saturday for his first visit to the state after losing the presidential election in November, launching a multifront assault on President Joe Biden and congressional Democrats he said were taking the nation to the ‘brink of ruin.

“Trump, who spoke for more than 90 minutes, rattled off a long list of campaign-style promises and joked about a potential new slogan, but stopped short of announcing a reelection bid.

“We’re going to take America back.”

Der Tiger Beat auf dem Potomac (thanks Charlie with an assist from Water Tiger!) email thingie has this to report (emphasis theirs):

There’s a big gap between the GOP message and Trump’s message.On Saturday night we heard both from Trump himself — the former when he read the speech that was written for him, and the latter when he said what he really thought.

— The GOP message: “After just nine months under [President JOE] BIDEN,violent criminals and bloodthirsty gangs are taking over our streets; illegal aliens and deadly drug cartels are taking over our borders; inflation is taking over our economy; China’s taking over our jobs; the Taliban has taken over Afghanistan; lunatic leftists are taking over our schools; and radical socialists are taking over our country — and we’re not going to let that happen.”

— Trump’s message: “I’m telling you the single biggest issue, as bad as the border is and it’s horrible, horrible what they’re doing, they’re destroying our country — but as bad as that is, the single biggest issue — the issue that gets the most pull, the most respect, the biggest cheers — is talking about the election fraud of the 2020 presidential election.”

That’s a problem for Republicans. Many of them want to make the midterm elections about the issues — inflation, the border, Afghanistan, etc. — to set the election up as a referendum on Biden’s presidency. Trump doesn’t. The bulk of his speech, Meridith writes, “was devoted to his baseless claim [that] the 2020 election was stolen.” In focusing on that issue above all others, Trump effectively makes the 2022 election a referendum on him instead of Biden.

And we should be grateful for that he wants 2022 to be a referendum on himself and that should be the 2022 campaign from the left as well: Don’t put the madman or his enablers back in charge. Again.

Here’s Rep. Paul Gosar (R-TTSKoA) explaining the results of the audit at an official House oversight committee hearing:

Got that? That’s Possum Hollar in a nutshell/nutcase. It’s like listening to a meth head talking to his invisible friends.

Hair Füror doesn’t have any policies or reason to run other than vengeance, and trust me on this: it is all of us he seeks to punish.

    Hey Iowa, no offense, but that guy doesn’t love you. He thinks you are stupid.

    We expect better from Iowa.

    His siblings tried seriously to warn everyone in a well-done paid for ad before he was elected…they’re still trying by asking for his removal.
    One might wonder if there is absolutely zero vetting for people running for election in any official capacity in the U.S..
