Trump Proves His Trolling Game is Expert Level With His Choice for House Speaker

He’s definitely a master of the Twitter game.

President Trump has proven once again, that while he might not be the world’s most masterful politician, he’s most certainly King of the Trolls.

After losing the House in Tuesday’s midterm elections, President Trump decided to play the role of friendly adviser to the Democratic Party by penning a tweet that stated Nancy Pelosi deserves to be Speaker of the House.

“In all fairness, Nancy Pelosi deserves to be chosen Speaker of the House by the Democrats. If they give her a hard time, perhaps we will add some Republican votes. She has earned this great honor!” Trump wrote on Twitter as a crisp sunny day broke in Washington, D.C.

Pelosi, the 78-year-old Democrat from California who was House Speaker from 2007 until the GOP took control of the chamber in 2011, is poised to resume that powerful position — and she wants it.

“I feel very confident in the support that I have in the House Democratic Caucus, and my focus is on winning this election because so much is at stake,” Pelosi told reporters in July. Just this month, she told The Washington Post: “Nobody is indispensable. But I do think that I am best qualified to take us into the future, protect the Affordable Care Act, to do our infrastructure bill and the rest. Stepping down this path, I know the ropes.”

Now why would President Trump tout Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House? Because having her be the face of the Democrats in Congress would be a dream come true. More and more Democrats have attempted to distance themselves from Pelosi in recent years, not to mention if they gridlock the legislature, Trump will use Pelosi as a target for his reelection campaign in 2020.

Yes, it seems Trump might be playing the long game here.

Throughout the 2018 midterms, Republicans sought to connect Democratic candidates to Pelosi — they ran more than 250 anti-Pelosi TV ads in some 75 House districts during the last months of the campaign. That forced some candidates to repudiate Pelosi — and she wasn’t even Speaker.

For Trump, though, losing the House — but getting Pelosi back as a target for 2020 — is a dream come true. And he knows it.

If Nancy Pelosi is chosen as Speaker of the House, that very well maybe one of the best gifts Trump ever receives from Democrats. We’ll just have to wait and see how the whole thing unfolds.

Andrew Cuomo Should Win The Political Darwin Award

Heck, he should probably get a lifetime achievement Darwin Award based on his handling of the CoronaVirus pandemic.

If there is ever a Darwin Award for politicians New York Governor Andrew Cuomo just earned himself the award—heck, he should probably get a lifetime achievement Darwin Award based on his handling of the CoronaVirus pandemic. The Darwin Awards salute the improvement of the human gene pool by honoring those who achieve the pinnacle of stupidity by accidentally and spectacularly killing themselves most spectacularly. Like the guy who approached the open drawbridge in Louisiana, “lifted up the arm of the safety gate, then get back in while the driver backed up a bit and accelerated hard over the dra-bridge edge.” The car did not make it. The driver and passenger drowned as the car sank into the bayou. They received the award because “You cannot live long if the road’s IQ is higher than your own. In this IQ test, our Double Darwin winners failed; indeed, they set a new low. Because these Texas Men–unlike the Blues Brothers–lacked “Cop Tires. Cop Engine. Cop Suspension, and a Mission From God.” A political version of the Darwin Awards would not involve the death of the winner but would be given to the politician who says the most imbecilic tone-deaf statement at the worst possible time. Based on his latest statements, New York’s ‘Luv Guv” Andrew Cuomo should receive a lifetime achievement Darwin Award. Cuomo has been in trouble thanks to sexual harassment charges and, most importantly, his COVID-19 executive order that lead to the death of thousands of senior citizens earning him the Twitter hashtag #CuomoKilledGrandma. When concerns regarding the nursing home deaths resulting from his order, the Luv Guv made some awful tone-deaf statements, perhaps the worst of which happened in May 2020. A reporter asked, “What would you say to families who have suffered losses inside nursing homes? His callous…

VIDEO: Conservative Icon Tears Through 30 Pushups to Teach Reporter a Lesson

He’s still got it!

Published

There has been no shortage of concerns over the health of our elected officials as of late, and with good reason.  We keep electing septuagenarians who aren’t exactly the perfect specimen of physical or mental health. And so, far too often, we hear these elder statesmen ragging on one another’s condition.  During the 2016 election, we had to watch the painful and frankly scary behavior of Hillary Clinton, who was in continual denial about whatever affliction she was dealing with at the time.  In 2020, it was Donald Trump and Joe Biden arguing back and forth over their stamina and physical aptitude.  At one point, Biden even suggested that he would drop and give us several pushups in the middle of a debate if Trump would be willing to match him. That potentially hilarious incident never occurred, (maybe thankfully, in order to save our nation from that embarrassment), but these feats of strength remain out there, in the ether, just waiting for some poor sap to take the bait. A reporter in Texas was almost that sap this week. Texas Republican Party Chairman Allen West, a 60-year-old former Army lieutenant colonel, did 30 pushups at a press conference outside the state capitol on Wednesday. The pushups occurred near the end of the event, which was to discuss the state’s new abortion and anti-transgender bills. West initially challenged a CBS Austin reporter who showed up late to the event to do 30 pushups in order to make up for his tardiness. After the journalist declined, West did the pushups himself. The crowd counted along and then cheered after he completed them in roughly 22 seconds. Video of the incident shows that West has still got it. https://twitter.com/janestreet/status/1390055667612979204?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1390055667612979204%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.newsweek.com%2Ftexas-gop-chair-lt-col-allen-west-challenges-reporter-press-conference-do-30-pushups-1589432 West has long been an icon in the conservative world, and there is little doubt that this…
