Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch who has spent three years, now, protesting against the U.S.A. despite being made a multi-millionaire, just called President Donald Trump a “mother***er” on television.

Lynch was one of the original anti-American protesters who took up former NFL player Colin Kaepernick’s assault on the U.S. during the playing of the national anthem at the start of every NFL games since 2016.

In fact, his protests have been even worse than Kaepernick’s because when the Raiders went to Mexico City to play an away game in 2017, Lynch refused to stand for the American anthem, but happily stood at attention for the Mexican national anthem!

In any case, Lynch was invited as a panelist for left-wing “comedian” Bill Maher’s HBO show, Real Time, and he had some choice words for Trump.

The conversation turned to President Trump who has taken Lynch to task for his protests during the national anthem. Lynch wasted no time digging into the president, according to The Hill.

“That motherfucker say a lot of shit,” Lynch scoffed.

The 2014 Super Bowl player then alluded to the president’s Twitter attack on Lynch’s lack of patriotism.

“But at the end of the day,” Lynch added, “you call me unpatriotic but you come to the neighborhood where I’m from, and you’ll see me take the shirt off my back and give it to someone in less need, what would you call that?”

Trump knocked Lynch in 2017 saying, “Marshawn Lynch of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders stands for the Mexican Anthem and sits down to boos for our National Anthem. Great disrespect!” Trump wrote. “Next time NFL should suspend him for remainder of season. Attendance and ratings way down.”

He also wore a t-shirt during the 2017 season that featured the slogan “Everybody vs Trump.”

Lynch continued his anthem protests into the 2018 season but he remained one of only a handful of players who did so.

Texas Election Audits Will Not Be Deterred, Says Governor Abbott

This, after the left threw a veritable hissy fit over the decision to move forward with the election inspections.

Published

on

Within the ranks of the liberal left, there is a new hysteria growing, and it’s taking aim at Texas and her Governor, Greg Abbott.

Abbott has long been the bane of the Democratic Party, as he is one of the most powerful lawmakers not on Capitol Hill.  To further their worry, Texas has long been an incredibly independent state, and that streak has often extended to their politicians as well.

So, when Governor Abbott announced that the state would be undergoing an audit of the 2020 election, the left began to collectively lose their minds.

Abott, however, is undeterred.

Abbott told Fox News that he doesn’t think the audit is a waste of taxpayer money – despite the fact that Trump easily won the state over Biden.

“There are audits of every aspect of government,” Abbott said. “Why do we audit everything in this world, but people raise our hands in concern when we audit elections, which is fundamental to our democracy?”

The audits, which fill focus on 4 Texas counties, have been publicly supported by Donald Trump – who lost the vote in 3 of the 4 locales in question.  Abbott and Trump have a close political relationship, which could further explain why leftists are so concerned about what these audits could mean for public trust in the electoral process.

Biden Approval Tanks Again as Heavy Legislative Week Gets Underway

The President is in a bad spot, and there doesn’t appear to be much light at the end of the tunnel.

Published

on

Joe Biden is going to have to start performing, and fast, if there’s any hope left for the Democratic Party.

The President’s first 8 months in office haven’t just been lackluster, they’ve been embarrassing.  Crises are piling up, solutions are in short supply, and many Americans are under the impression that there isn’t enough actual work being done in the White House to actually improve the nation at all.

And, unsurprisingly, this is being reflected heavily in Biden’s polling numbers.

President Biden’s approval rating among Americans stands in negative territory at 43%, a drop of six points in just one month, according to a new Gallup poll.

The survey, which was released on Wednesday, indicates that the deterioration in the president’s numbers is being fueled by a plunge in approval among independents. And Biden’s approval is lower at this point in his presidency than any of his most recent predecessors, except for then-President Trump.

Biden stands at 43% approval and 53% disapproval in the poll, which was conducted Sept. 1-17. That’s down from a 49%-48% approval/disapproval rating in Gallup’s Aug. 2-17 survey. The president stood at 56%-42% in Gallup’s June poll.

The news comes just just days ahead of a huge week for the President, in which his agenda will be fully tested in the halls of Congress.

Not only will the Democrats attempt to push through a controversial and expensive infrastructure bill, but also their reconciliation plan – something that has been highly divisive on the left side of the aisle alone.
