Trump-a-mania at the RNC

I would believe that there’s a typo in heading … ‘Trump-a-maniac at the RNC’ may seem more accurate. Oh and please mind myself, was that convention about a country?? One more thing, I’m just curious, the famed waitress that accepted his tip for “taxed tips”… was she a double ’D’??… jussayin..

And those so-called Democrats ‘elite’ that are in request for him to step aside, are merely Republicans in disguise! Them along with the “Mainstream Media “ are solely responsible and relentless in President Bidens request to not proceed. Thankfully they are ignored and his (voters) people has MORE AND MEANINGFUL SAY to the matter. Excellent reporting, and thanks! This is only my opinion.

You hosted Scott Jennings

I thought this podcast was great. However, after the last episode featuring Scott Jennings, I won’t be listening anymore. This pod debased itself by inviting a GOP propagandist on and parading him around like he actually had a rational and thoughtful perspective to offer. Next time, you ought to at least qualify to the audience that one of your guests is a gaslighting partisan toady and Trump apologist who is willing eat his own words and to justify the January 6th insurrection when his political career requires such even after writing in 2021: “ President Donald Trump caused this insurrection with his lies and conspiracy theories about the election process being rigged against him. It was not stolen, but this madness was fomented by the President and his top advisers over the past several months. His attorney Rudy Giuliani, at a rally on Wednesday, called for "trial by combat" to a roaring crowd. Let me be clear: These rioters are not Republicans. These are not conservatives. These are not patriots bursting into the US Capitol, accosting police officers and destroying public property.”
This is the same person, the same Scott Jennings, who just waxed poetic on this pod about Trump’s moral authority to condemn political violence. Something about Trump getting “his ear shot off.” But that’s a lie too, isn’t it? Otherwise what is a that prop white bandage wrapped around on the side of Trumps head?Scott lied multiple times on the episode without any fact-checking or pushback - Donald Trump did not enter into politics in 2015; Scott conveniently misrepresented the fact that Trump actually ran for President before his 2015/16 campaign; the is no world in which Scott does not know about Trump’s pathetic attempt to run for President as a “Reform Party” candidate in 1999/2000. According to this podcast episode, Donald Trump came on the scene in 2015 and has been a dominant political voice ever since. Scott is just spewing Trump-worshipping propaganda masquerading as an alternate perspective and because of the lack of fact-checking Vox is validating and legitimizing his position. Hate to see it, but, Vox, you’re part of the problem…
