Trump Obliterates Biden’s ‘MAGA King’ Insult with Brutal Meme

Once again it has been made clear:  Sleepy Joe is no match for Teflon Don.

Joe Biden’s administration needs to stop the bleeding, and in a hurry.

The 46th President of the United States is one of the most unpopular Presidents in modern history, with horrible approval ratings that appear to have little to no elasticity whatsoever these days.  Worse still, the Democratic Party is so enraged with one another that their majority in the House and Senate are completely useless due to the infighting.

And so the PR team on Pennsylvania Avenue decided that it was time to roll out Angry Joe.  Or, more accurately, Mad at MAGA Joe, whose shift from flippant defense to fiery offense against Donald Trump was suppose to earn him some credibility with the far left elements of his party.

As it turns out, Joe’s canned insults have only further incensed the Trump base, and given the former guy himself some retaliatory ammunition.

President Biden ripped Donald Trump by calling him “The Great MAGA King,” but the right wing instead embraced the term, while some midterm Democratic candidates hedged on whether they want Biden’s support, the panel on “The Five” discussed Thursday.

At a reported $30,000-per-head fundraiser for Democrats, Biden bragged about reportedly decreasing the federal deficit by a record amount, criticizing Trump for instead ballooning it:

“Under my predecessor, the great MAGA king, the deficit increased every single year he was president,” Biden said, only days after he branded his opposition “ultra-MAGA.”

In response, Trump co-opted the nickname, posting a meme to his Truth Social account depicting him as a sword-wielding monarch from “Lord of the Rings.”

The meme was getting heavy play on Twitter and beyond.

Once again it has been made clear:  Angry Joe is no match for Teflon Don.

Melania Trump Drops Major Hint About 2024 Plans

Whoa!

The political tumult of another election is upon us, this time thrusting the nation back into the complex and quickly-undulating world of the midterms.

This is the time when we’ll be learning a whole lot of new names and faces, as well as districts and places.  But, perhaps even more interestingly, we’ll be discovering just how much influence our more-established political voices will have.

Donald Trump has already racked up a number of endorsement-wins in the primaries, as his control over the GOP base appears unshaken.  This, of course, has many wondering if the former President will be running again himself in 2024.

The former First Lady just dropped a pretty solid hint about that possibility.

In Melania Trump’s first interview since leaving the White House, the former first lady hinted that there is a chance she could live there again as former President Donald Trump teases a 2024 reelection bid.

“I think we achieved a lot in four years of the Trump administration,” Melania Trump told Fox in an interview that aired Sunday morning, adding, “Never say never,” when asked if she could be living in the White House again should her husband run for reelection.

Trump also had some stern words for the Biden administration.

Trump also weighed in on the state of the US under President Joe Biden, saying, “I think it’s sad to see what’s going on, if you really look deeply into it.”

“I think a lot of people are struggling and suffering and what is going on around the world as well. So it’s very sad to see and I hope it changes fast,” Trump said.

The former President is believed to be waiting until after the 2022 midterms to announced a potential reelection bid.

McConnell’s Visit to Ukraine Sparks MAGA Complaints

Are the McConnell moderates headed for a showdown with the MAGA Movement come the midterms?

It’s no secret that Mitch McConnell has been distancing himself from the MAGA wing of the Republican Party for some time, particularly as the 2022 midterms loom just over the political horizon.

McConnell, who supported President Trump publicly while in office, has taken a turn toward the center during this Biden administration, and it has him at odds with some other major players within the GOP.

This week, as the Senate Minority Leader visited Ukraine, the MAGA Movement was stewing back in Washington.

The Senate minority leader’s secret visit to Kyiv this weekend to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, along with McConnell’s staunch advocacy for the $40 billion Ukraine aid bill in Congress, is putting him at odds with his party’s non-interventionist wing. A growing number of GOP lawmakers, candidates and former President Donald Trump are hitting the effort to send billions to Ukraine as misguided given domestic problems at home.

Pennsylvania Republican Senate candidate Kathy Barnette challenged McConnell directly: “Why is Leader McConnell visiting Ukraine in the midst of the various crises right here in America?” But McConnell is unbowed.

Another Republican row was evident as well.

McConnell and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer made a rare joint request for a quick vote on the $40 billion aid legislation on Thursday, but [Republican Senator Rand] Paul said no, pushing the legislation into this week. McConnell addressed his disagreement with Paul, whose blockade prevented McConnell from traveling to Ukraine with a fresh congressional victory in hand.

“Well, it’s no secret. Rand and I have a different world view of the importance of Americans’ role around the world. So that was not surprising. And it won’t create a problem. We’ll get the job done by Wednesday,” McConnell said. He was accompanied on his trip by Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) and John Cornyn (R-Texas).

McConnell was unfazed, however, and the friction between he and the far right could continue to build well into the heart of the midterm contest.
