THOUGHTS & PRAYERS! Repubs worry Trump announcing 2024 run "could hurt them in the midterms!"

Oh dear GOD, no. If they don't take back the House and Senate, they can't take Social Security and Medicare away from us! THEN what will we DO?

Trump thinks announcing a 2024 run now could distract from the January 6 hearings, a report says. Some Republicans worry he could hurt them in the midterms.

Trump could be planning to make an unusually early announcement of his plans to run for president, but not all Republicans are convinced it would be the right move for the party.

Trump has long teased a 2024 White House run and has continued to hold campaign-style rallies, all while stopping short of saying definitively if he plans to enter the race. However, recent revelations from the House Select committee's hearings on the January 6 insurrection are impacting his plans, according to a report from The New York Times.

Now, Trump is considering announcing a run far earlier than expected, possibly even this month, in part as an attempt to distract from the hearings, the outlet reported.

The January 6 hearing this week featured allegations that were especially damaging to Trump, including explosive testimony from Cassidy Hutchinson, who at the time of the Capitol attack was the top aide to White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.


THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS for Clarence & Ginni, who are going through "a particularly stressful time."

An attorney for Virginia "Ginni" Thomas argued that she should not have to testify before the Jan. 6 Committee because she has been subjected to a "particularly stressful time."

The Daily Caller first reported that attorney Mark R. Paoletta provided the committee with a letter on behalf of the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

“Before I can recommend that she meet with you, I am asking the Committee to provide a better justification for why Mrs. Thomas’s testimony is relevant to the Committee’s legislative purpose,” Paoletta wrote in the eight-page letter.

The attorney added: "I would also note that this has been a particularly stressful time as the Thomases have been subjected to an avalanche of death threats and other abuse by the unprecedented assault on the conservative Supreme Court Justices and their families."

BREAKING: Trump reveals that the 2020 Election was "a fruit bread of nuts, spices..."

He squirted out a post on Truth Social about the election being STOLLEN.

Stollen is "a fruit bread of nuts, spices, and dried or candied fruit, coated with powdered sugar or icing sugar and often containing marzipan."

And he's an ignorant motherfucker.

Details here, I'm not going to post it, fuck him. I don't know if he'll do what he did on Twitter, which is correct it when he finds out, but right now it says "STOLLEN."

I wish the Fitzmas high-fiving around these hearings on social media would stop

I'm not a legal scholar. My understanding is that all of the evidence in the world can be driven right up to Merrick Garland's front door and he can STILL decline to prosecute.

The evidence doesn't matter, right? Garland can still decide he's not going to get involved. Correct me if I'm wrong here, folks.

I've been through Fitzmas.

I've been through the Mueller Report.

I'll celebrate the DOJ prosecuting Trump when the DOJ prosecutes Trump, not while watching the Jan 6 hearings.

If..."IF" Trump is indicted at the end of these hearings, he will COMPLETELY lose his shit.

The #1 thing I am hoping for is that he does not end up doing a Muller Report-style victory lap..."no collusion, no obstruction, full exoneration, many are saying that this was the greatest witch hunt blah blah blah blah blah..."

The fact that he is "DEMANDING equal time" (and when he posts it in all caps on "Truth Social" it takes on an extra level of authority) shows that he's not liking what he's seeing.

Good. But NONE of this means a THING if he's allowed to walk at the end of it. He CAN'T be allowed to have a do-over of this in 2024. There have GOT to be INDICTMENTS.

I don't understand how Republicans can CAMPAIGN ON gutting Social Security

Lindsey Graham is "trending" on Twitter today because he's promising that Republicans will "look at" Social Security if they take back the Senate in November. He's specifically mentioning raising the eligibility age and tightening income caps.

HOW THE HELL CAN THEY RUN ON THIS? Is this what Americans really want?

The Daddy Donald / Princess Ivanka drama is just too skeevy and disturbing for me to follow

We know what he thinks of her...he's said it in interviews that are readily available on YouTube, and there are photos that back it up.

We remember most of the people who "know" Trump, from Mary Trump to Michael Cohen to all points in between, say that if it came to a matter of preserving his own hide, he'd throw Ivanka under the bus.

And he's done that in a way that's more devious than if he'd actually attacked her as he does all others who challenge him. He basically negated what she had to say, claiming it came from someone who didn't know what they were talking about.

His daughter.

I can't stomach the Princess. I remember a couple of Memorial Days ago, when she encouraged her Twitter followers to celebrate the day with her recipe for champagne popsicles. I remember her sweat shop, I remember Jared, I remember her smiling nebulously and flipping her hair at diplomatic events she had no business attending.

In the big picture, like the rest of us, Ivanka didn't get to pick her parents. She won the lottery when it came to $$$$$$$$$ but in virtually every other regard, she's a loser, including in the present moment. I don't really care...I bring this up only to support the premise that when it comes to Donald Trump, there is no "bottom."

CNN - Barr: Trump "largely responsible" for people going to the Capitol

Barr: Trump to blame for people going to the Capitol

Former Attorney General William Barr told Fox that he holds former President Donald Trump "largely responsible" for people going to the Capitol on January 6, but doesn't think Trump committed a crime.

Trump's "angry statement" seems to be based on the Committee not using last night to push his lies

I know he's insane and delusional, I get it.

Here's the Raw Story link to his "Truth Social" post:

https://www.rawstory.com/trump-twitter-2657486001/

It's a platform only inhabited by MAGAts (and I assume a few who are curious, but I'm not THAT curious).

ANYWAY...he wrote that the committee "refuses to play any of the many positive witnesses and statements..."

What was he expecting? An hour of Sydney Powell threatening to "unleash the kraken?" Story time with Ginni Thomas?

His entire objection is that the committee apparently tried to make him look bad after all of his great work.

Merrick Garland REALLY NEEDS TO put the brakes on Trump. CNN claimed Garland "was watching" last night. Let's hope he watches the next six televised hearings and prepares indictments.

McConnell CANNOT STOP WHINING about Boof Boy. One effing tweet after another.

I'm not going to share any of them here, I know you've probably seen them.

The optics. God DAMN it, the optics. Nineteen beautiful children and two of their teachers ripped apart by assault weapon fire, and all McConnell wants to talk about is how America MUST wrap a protective shield around Boof Boy.

As I have said before, HOW MANY TIMES do Republicans need to SHOW and TELL voters WHO and WHAT they are before voters will believe them?
