Donald Trump lies about Rep. Maxine Waters and tweets not so veiled threat.

I am not going to lie, I did not think that Rep. Waters did herself or the Democrats any favors by suggesting that people SHOULD harass and heckle folks connected to the Trump Administration. 

If it happens organically that is one thing, but if it gets even the marginal backing of the Democratic party that could be a real problem. 

And indeed that has proven true, as Trump illustrated with his tweet today.


Now first off Trump characterizing what Maxine Waters said as calling for harm to his supporters is a fucking lie.

But the end of his tweet which suggests that she might be the victim of harm by those self-same supporters is fucking terrifying. 

This is the president of the United States fomenting actual violence against a sitting member of Congress. 

And where Trump goes, the Trump media is sure to follow.

Courtesy of GQ:

Waters has been a target of the president’s not-even-trying-to-hide-it racism before, and her call for protests of the Trump administration is the type of Fox News headline that writes itself. This “push back” language was subjected to all sorts of dishonest torture until it emerged on the other side as an endorsement of literal violence in the streets: She had encouraged people to “attack” and “fight” and “ambush” West Wing employees, and incited “mob violence,” and advocated for “total social warfare.”

And this sort of illustrates why it is so important to pick your words carefully, though to be honest no matter how you phrase something the Right Wing is only going to hear what they want to hear. 

I only hope that Rep. Waters has some good security around her because I really do think that Donald Trump just put her life in very real danger.

    ‘How smart is she?’: Trump rants about Melania being intelligent enough to praise him even if he’s not sure ‘she believes it’

    The comment came as part of a rant about NBC host Jimmy Fallon and the network in general. He said that NBC might be worse than CNN because they didn’t treat him well after the ratings he scored for them. Then he railed against Arnold Schwarzenegger, saying he “bombed in two shows.”

    “And the one who knew was my wife. She said you know –” he paused as the audience applauded Melania. “She’s very smart. She said, ‘You know there’s nobody that can take your place, don’t you?’ I said, ‘Thank you, darling.’ How smart is that? I don’t know if she believes it, but she said, ‘There’s nothing that can take your place. He will not be successful. There’s nobody, darling, that can take your place?’ How smart is she? How smart. How smart.”

    Meanwhile this is how “civil” the right is. of course it is ok for them to swear, rant and rave because they are trump supporters and they are angry. the rest of us have to keep our mouths shut and be good little liberals.

    …….“I had an elderly woman, just a short while ago, come up to me — and said that we at CNN should get the ‘F’ out of this auditorium at this high school in West Columbia. She turned to the crowd and whipped them up into a frenzy, calling on us to leave before President Trump arrives.”..

    Trump supporters are bombarding the wrong Red Hen restaurant with threats and abuse

    I am not in favor of hunting these people down, they don’t have any ethics or a conscience so why waste the energy.

    However, as far as the Red Hen, it was Sarah Huck a LIAR that created all the drama and was looking to cause a problem by tweeting on her government twitter account to send in the flying monkeys to do harm to the restaurant. The manager didn’t get on twitter and say, hey we just threw Sarah Huck a Liar out. It was Sarah that tried to act superior but really knew she was calling in the angry cult members.

    Now of course trump has to add fuel to fire and tweet out the place is dirty. ( obviously he “forgot” about the 13 health violations at his Mar a Lago restaurant yuck)

    So who exactly is escalating the problem, they are, they are acting childish and uncivil then whine that they get no respect.

      Trump tweeted about the restaurant like a mean girl to punish the owner for taking a stand. Trump is malicious.
      Maxine Waters went too far IMO.

    It does not seem that any Democratic Party lawmakers are standing behind Maxine… who lives in a multi-million dollar house….well outside where her constituents live.

    Frankly the semi intelligent Democrats have called her out on her remarks and are distancing themselves as fast as they can from her BS.

    Can you believe how quickly we are devolving into an Idiocracy? Literally the “president” is tweeting like a middle school mean girl bully….and so many idiot murikkkans think it’s awesome.

      Yes, and what is the story behind Mike Huckabee tweet that the restaurant manager went across the street and was yelling outside the window “harassing ” poor sarah even after she left.

      This story sounds like something he made up, doesn’t sound like something the manager would do, it sounds like Mike wants to stir up the hatred and make poor sarah sound like more of a victim

    “Their districts — the 9th, 12th, and 14th — are safely Democratic, and incumbents Crowley, Clarke, and Maloney are all considered heavy favorites to win Tuesday. But these challengers can, in many ways, already declare victory. By ensuring competitive primary races, they have helped put their rivals on their toes and effectively pulled incumbents to the left.”

    OT:
    “When Trump told a rally in Duluth, Minnesota, last week that North Korea already had returned the remains of 200 of “our great fallen heroes,” U.S. and South Korean officials were puzzled, to say the least. Nobody here had heard about the return of the remains since Trump had taken credit for getting Kim to agree to a fourth point on the slim statement they signed at the Singapore summit on June 12: “The United States and the DPRK commit to recovering POW/MIA remains, including the immediate repatriation of those already identified.””“The way that North Korea can return 200 sets of remains so quickly is that they’ve been stored in warehouses for decades,” said Tharp. “It takes about five seconds for an anthropologist to see the bones have dried out and become cured.”
    In one case 25 years ago, Tharp recalls, “They found catalog markings etched on them.”

    ” He takes cruel delight in belittling Waters, casting her in overtly racist tones as a “low-IQ” Democratic boogey-woman, hell-bent on destroying him and the hateful America he’s trying desperately to preserve and restore.” tweet>
    ‘Congratulations to Maxine Waters, whose crazy rants have made her, together with Nancy Pelosi, the unhinged FACE of the Democrat Party. Together, they will Make America Weak Again! But have no fear, America is now stronger than ever before, and I’m not going anywhere!
    3:18 AM – Jun 27, 2018’
