Jimmy Kimmel Laughs at Trump for Telling Republicans Not to Vote

This week, Donald Trump caused some potentially catastrophic problems for his own party when he warned that Republicans “will not be voting” in 2022 or 2024 if they don’t “solve” what he is now calling the “Presidential Election Fraud of 2020.”
Or as Jimmy Kimmel put it Thursday night, “The angry orange baby is throwing another fit over the election he can’t admit he lost.”
After reading the bizarre statement, Kimmel laughed out loud, telling his audience, “I know, I’m confused also.

The Biggest Revelations in “Peril” Are Really About the Republican Party’s Future

Donald Trump and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, it was widely reported, met for lunch at Mar-a-Lago on January 28th, three weeks after a Trumpist mob stormed the Capitol, and a week after Joe Biden was sworn in as President. Have you wondered what they talked about? In “Peril,” Bob Woodward and Robert Costa have the answer for you. Trump asks:

“You want a cheeseburger and fries?”

“I’ll have a cheeseburger, but I’m fat,” McCarthy said. “No fries. Salad. Take the bun out.”

“That really works?” Trump asked, looking over at McCarthy’s plate.

Poor Sean Spicer

Earlier this month, news broke that the White House asked for the resignation of Spicer and other Trump appointees from military academy advisory boards. When asked about the matter, the current press secretary, Jen Psaki, said, “I will let others evaluate whether they think Kellyanne Conway and Sean Spicer and others were qualified or not political to serve on these boards, but the president’s qualification requirements are not your party registration. They are whether you’re qualified to serve and whether you’re aligned with the values of this administration.

Move over, Republicans. Democrats are now the pro-business, pro-growth party.

For the past decade, voters have usually said they trusted Republicans more than Democrats on the economy. This was a triumph of propaganda over experience, given how much better the economy has generally performed under Democratic presidents, on nearly every major metric — jobs, output growth, productivity, stock prices. To be fair, Democrats’ superior economic record to date has been primarily due to luck. But right now, Democrats deserve Americans’ economic faith because they are the only — yes, only — party actively working to help the economy recover from covid-19.

Firing H.R. McMaster Makes Biden Look as Petty as Trump

Joe Biden’s bipartisan fantasy league cut another player this week with the petty, crass, and unnecessary removal of former National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster from the advisory board of the United States Military Academy (also known as West Point).
Every president has the right to make such moves, but that doesn’t mean this decision isn’t scandalous. If Trump had removed a predecessor’s appointee of McMaster’s stature, the resulting criticism would have been deafening. Compare that to the current mainstream outrage level, which sounds more like crickets.

Biden’s dishonorable service academy purge

The Biden administration made an unprecedented move this week in requesting the resignations  of 18 members, all Trump appointees, of boards of the U.S. military academies.
This move is inexplicable and wrong.
First, the boards are nonpartisan. They help shape the direction of the academies that train America’s finest to serve at home and abroad. The military does not care if service members are Democrats or Republicans, rather if they have the mental and physical capacity to protect the homeland.

Seth Meyers Rips Trump Military Board Appointees for Trying to Stick Around

Seth Meyers on Thursday criticized appointees of former President Donald Trump for complaining about being asked by the Biden administration to resign from their military academy advisory boards or else be dismissed.
“Why were there still any Trump holdovers anyway?” the late-night host wondered. “That’s like moving into a rent-controlled apartment that the last guy died in and keeping all the expired white fish in the refrigerator.

The White House Office of Presidential Personnel sent letters on Wednesday to Trump appointees on advisory boards at the U.S. Military Academy, U.S. Naval Academy, and U.S. Air Force Academy requesting their resignations.
