GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert’s Anti-Pelosi Ad Ends With A Chilling Sound Effect

Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) faced backlash this week for releasing an ad attacking Democrats and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) that ended with a gunshot sound. In the spot, the QAnon-endorsing first-term lawmaker called on Pelosi to “tear down” the security fence that was put up around the U.S. Capitol following the Jan. 6 insurrection, when a violent mob of then-President Donald Trump’s supporters overran the Capitol building. “It’s time to cut the crap and remember, this is the people’s house,” Boebert bombastically declared. The video concluded with audio of a gunshot, followed by the sound of the weapon being reloaded and fired again. In light of the riot, critics demanded to know why pro-gun activist Boebert had decided to end the video in that provocative way: Rep.

Hostility between congressional Republicans and Democrats grows amid fears of violence. Donald Trump’s presidency was the worst thing that happened to the Trump brand. Long before there was a presidency, long before there was even a campaign, there was the brand.

Donald Trump’s presidency was the worst thing that happened to the Trump brand

Stamped on buildings and golf courses and steaks and ties, the Trump name was bigger in many ways than the Trump reality. Donald Trump positioned himself as a boss and kingmaker on The Apprentice and sold his lifestyle to consumers as something for the very rich and famous. Now that he is the former president, the question becomes what is next for Trump — and what is next for the Trump brand. There are impeachment proceedings in Washington and lawsuits in New York on his docket. There’s Mar-a-Lago, but no PGA championship. Can he return to his existence as an entertainer, status symbol, and real estate icon? I asked five branding experts what they think of the Trump brand now, how the presidency changed it, and what its future — if one still exists — will look like. The American Abyss. Trump’s coup attempt of 2020-21, like other failed coup attempts, is a warning for those who care about the rule of law and a lesson for those who do not.

The American Abyss

His pre-fascism revealed a possibility for American politics. For a coup to work in 2024, the breakers will require something that Trump never quite had: an angry minority, organized for nationwide violence, ready to add intimidation to an election. Four years of amplifying a big lie just might get them this. To claim that the other side stole an election is to promise to steal one yourself.

How The Capitol Attack Led Democrats to Demand Trump's Resignation

Trump to the point of obsequiousness, was angry in return at the president’s public lashing. Senator James M. Inhofe, Republican of Oklahoma, told The Tulsa World that Mr. There are two words that are never spoken in Showtime’s recent four-part documentary series “The Reagans”: Donald Trump.

But they don’t need to be. “The Reagans” scrapes off the hagiographic goo that’s been spackled over Ronald Reagan since he left office in 1989, revealing the obvious reality underneath: Reagan was Trump’s progenitor, and Trump is Reagan’s degenerate 21st century descendant. Trump is to Reagan much like crack is to cocaine: cheaper, faster-acting, and less glamorous. Still, in their essence, they are the same thing. This would be common knowledge if the United States had any kind of historical memory. Johnson - Donald Trump’s language offers insight into how he won the presidency. EVERYONE KNOWS how to do a Donald Trump impersonation.

Johnson - Donald Trump’s language offers insight into how he won the presidency

In speech, adopt his raspy timbre, bellowing volume and start-stop rhythm. In writing, throw in “bigly”, capitalise Emotional Noun Phrases and end everything with an exclamation mark. Such quirks of enunciation and spelling make Mr Trump easy to mimic, but they do not easily explain his political success. The way he constructs sentences, however, does offer some insight into how he captured the presidency. Ted Yoho. U.S.

Facing ‘a Lot of Blowback,’ Trump’s Surgeon General Steps Up

Jerome Adams faces two difficult challenges as President Trump’s surgeon general: He’s an African American working for a man routinely accused of racism, and he is a scientist in an administration that has shown contempt for science. He can live with that. “If people feel that the president needs to have a different perspective on the African-American community, the one thing I would say is, he’s not going to get it if there aren’t any African Americans in the administration,” Dr. Adams said in an interview, adding, “People are always saying we need more Black voices represented and more Black perspectives represented, but they’re always telling every Black person in the administration you should quit.” “Those two things don’t fit together,” he said. Strom Thurmond. Governor of South Carolina, United States Senator A magnet for controversy during his nearly half-century Senate career, Thurmond switched parties, primarily because of his vehement opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and endorsed Republican presidential candidate Barry Goldwater.

Strom Thurmond

In the months before switching, he had "been critical of the Democratic Administration for ... enactment of the Civil Rights Law",[2] while Goldwater "boasted of his opposition to the Civil Rights Act, and made it part of his platform. "[3] Thurmond left office as the only member of either chamber of Congress to reach the age of 100 while still in office, and as the oldest-serving and longest-serving senator in U.S. history (although he was later surpassed in the latter by Robert Byrd and Daniel Inouye).[4] Thurmond holds the record as the longest-serving member of Congress to serve exclusively in the Senate. He is also the longest-serving Republican member of Congress in U.S. history.

South Dakota governor: "We will not be social distancing" at July 3 event with Trump

Kristi Noem (R) told Fox News' Laura Ingraham on Monday that attendees at a July 3 event at Mount Rushmore where President Trump is set to speak will not be required to practice social distancing.

Oversight erased, Supreme Court hijacked: Trump turns the presidency into a dictatorship. Trump has stripped away the levers of independent oversight until there's nothing left. Our democracy is in the midst of a three-alarm fire.

Trump's narcissism has taken a new twist. And now he has American blood on his hands. Pity the people of America. They do battle now with one of the greatest challenges in their history, led by a man who is not only among the worst ever occupants of the White House but whose character makes him the last person on the face of the Earth you would nominate to be in charge at this moment. On Thursday the US reached the top of the global league table for coronavirus infections, edging ahead of its closest rival for that honour, China.
