We haven't heard much from Ginni Thomas lately

Did someone cart her off somewhere? I see her husband is still busy making fascist rulings on the bench.

Trump Promised 'Food For Everybody' At Miami Restaurant And Then Reportedly Skipped


After former President Donald Trump was arraigned on Tuesday in Miami, Florida, for allegedly refusing to turn over classified documents, he went to a Cuban restaurant in Little Havana to greet a crowd happy to see him.

The crowd was probably happier when Trump told them, “Food for everyone.”

Although most people would consider yelling “food for everyone” as a tacit promise that the person yelling those three words is taking care of the bill, there is a difference between promising to pay for something and actually doing that.

And, yes, Trump is notorious for stiffing people, which is why he’s reportedly had problems finding lawyers to defend him in all his current legal woes.

So forgive the Miami New Times for being skeptical that Trump lived up to the promise and indeed treated his cult followers to what it described as “a spread of croquetas, pastelitos, and cubanos chased with cafecitos.”

The publication reached out to what it described as a “knowledgeable source,” who assured the publication that Trump’s stop at the Cuban restaurant was only about 10 minutes tops, so there was no time for anyone to order anything, much less get the bill to Trump.

The New York Times reported that Trump didn’t get any food at the restaurant, preferring to eat McDonald’s on his plane.

Either trumpers are just plain stupid and self-defeating

or Twatter is full of Russian trolls and repuglican bots. It's hard to tell but one thing's for sure - they have to be the most uninformed, democracy hating people on the planet. I would also say some are just plain dumb and have this weird obsession with protecting their stupidity.

Putin's Pals Dream Up Fresh Plot to Help Trump Beat Biden

from the Daily Beast

In Moscow, the possibility that former President Donald Trump might end up in prison or even seek asylum in Russia has long been a topic of discussion on the Kremlin-controlled state television. A federal indictment that was unsealed on Friday revealed that Trump is facing 37 felony counts, because of a trove of classified documents he retained, including America’s military plans and nuclear secrets.

Troubled by the magnitude of the criminal jeopardy their favored candidate is facing, the Kremlin’s mouthpieces on state media’s airwaves are openly brainstorming how to help Trump by undermining President Joe Biden—reflecting the efforts that are likely taking place behind the scenes. After all, Trump represents Moscow’s best hope that the U.S. will eventually stop supporting Ukraine, which would in turn allow Russia to swallow it whole.

When it was first revealed that Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate was searched by the FBI and contained hundreds of classified documents, Russian state TV host Evgeny Popov mockingly noted: “Turns out that the investigation against Trump has to do with the disappearance of secret documents from the White House, related to the development of new nuclear weapons by the United States... Obviously, if there were any important documents, they’ve been studying them in Moscow for a while. What’s the point of searching?”

Now that the search has resulted in a multitude of charges, Popov and his fellow propagandists are not nearly as giddy but still hold out the hope that the Republicans and their mouthpieces—like Russia’s beloved Tucker Carlson—will manage to harm Biden and undermine U.S. aid to Ukraine.

Appearing on Vladimir Solovyov’s morning broadcast of Full Contact, "Americanologist" Dmitry Drobnitsky mockingly predicted that in light of the criminal charges that threaten the main contenders of the presidential race, the final battle might be between Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Nikki Haley. He pointed out that RFK Jr. surprised everyone with higher-than-anticipated popularity ratings but noted that he is unlikely to prevail. Nonetheless, Drobnitsky said, Kennedy’s participation in the elections will enable him to inject his pro-Russian talking points about Ukraine into the mainstream—a beneficial side effect for Moscow.

Judge Aileen "loose" Cannon

I am waiting to see if she will faithfully execute the oath she took as a judge vowing to uphold the law without prejudice, or will she turn into a trump sycophant again and start giving crazy, nonsense rulings that allow him to continue his rampage against our country's society?
