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 Pushes Businesses to Discriminate Against Unvaccinated

This is downright dirty.

With the delta variant now raging across many parts of the United States, some local officials are taking drastic measures in order to push past a wall of vaccine hesitancy that has been plaguing the nation, (no pun intended). For some, this simply means spending more money on advocacy campaigns and outreach, while, for others, the quest to get more shots in arms is taking a more militant approach. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) on Monday asked private businesses, including bars and restaurants, to “go to vaccine-only admission,” thereby barring patrons who are unvaccinated and insisting that the proposed policy is in their “best business interest.” “Everybody has to get vaccinated,” Cuomo said during Monday’s press conference, emphasizing the importance of “outreach, outreach, outreach.” “Deploy community groups. Deploy people who have credibility in the community, religious leaders. Educate people who still think that this is made up and it’s a problem and nobody really tested this and incentivize the vaccinations,” he said, touting President Biden’s $100 per vaccine pitch. Then came the scary part… “Private businesses, I am asking them and suggesting to them go to vaccine-only admission. Go to vaccine-only admission. We did this,” he said. “Radio City Music Hall months ago reopened vaccine-only, sold out all the shows. Sports arenas, they went up to about 90 percent vaccine-only.” The possibility of private businesses discriminating against the unvaccinated has been a growing concern among freedom experts from the moment that these inoculations became available, and it seems as though the worry is far from over.
