The walls are closing in on the former president. One would think there might be some attempts by him to mend some fences or do something that might put some momentum back in his favor. But this is Trump we are talking about, and from where many sit, he just isn’t capable of doing anything but being defiant like a petulant child. Even when he gets an easy lay-up (to borrow a basketball term) to have some contrition and condemn his racist and anti-Semitic dinner guests.
Trump dined and met with both anti-Semite Kanye West (who now goes by the moniker “Ye”) and white supremacist and Nick Fuentes. Fuentes is head of the racist America First Political Action Committee.
Afterwards, the twice impeached former POTUS took to his failing “Truth Social” network and attacked a multitude of people, occupations, and industries. He showed no contrition for his meeting with racists.
(NOTE FROM LC EDITOR: We are not bothering to “fact check” the following claims made by the former POTUS, as much have it has been debunked multiple times by many organizations. Also, we are not providing links to the statements on Truth Social as not to encourage traffic to that site.)
Saturday night he raged:
“This sounds fair, doesn’t it? The ‘Justice’ Department is CORRUPT. Offered Christopher Steele $1,000,000 to lie about me, paid Russian a fortune to ‘get Trump,’ told Facebook not to mention the Hunter Biden Laptop before the Election, ‘it was Russian disinformation,” when the KNEW it was not. Is Trump Hater Jack Smith going to investigate that? Will his Trump Hating boss, Lisa M, allow him to investigate the reason for January 6th, the corrupt 2020 Election, or the troops I recommended be sent?”
He didn’t stop there, continuing early Sunday morning …
“Jack Smith (nice, soft name, isn’t it?), is a political hit man, who is totally compromised, and shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near our already highly WEAPONIZED & CORRUPT ‘Justice’ Department and FBI, which are stuffed with, and listening to, Radical Left ‘MONSTERS,’ who will cause difficulties for our Country the likes of which we have not seen before. By the way, OBAMA SPIED ON MY CAMPAIGN (and got caught!), & what about the MASSIVE Joe & Hunter BIDEN CORRUPTION (Evidence already in!)?”
Then, if that wasn’t enough, we went into “all caps mode” (because that always makes people look rational and makes others take them seriously) in a final meltdown …
“THE FAKE NEWS IS THE MOST CORRUPT OF ALL. THEY ARE TRULY THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE – THE ENEMY OF THE USA. TURN IN THE SUPREME COURT LEAKER!”
So, according to Trump, everyone and everything is corrupt except for him and his racist buddies.
It isn’t like Trump failed to remember or mention the multi-hour meeting. He wrote about it Saturday night, and again, condemned everyone but them:
“so I help a seriously troubled man, who just happens to be black, Ye (Kanye West), who has been decimated in his business and virtually everything else, and who has always been good to me, by allowing his request for a meeting at Mar-a-Lago, alone, so that I can give him very much needed ‘advice.’”
“He shows up with 3 people, two of which I didn’t know, the other a political person who I haven’t seen in years. I told him don’t run for office, a total waste of time, can’t win. Fake News went crazy,”
So, “Ye” is a just someone looking for advice and Fuentes was just some random person he didn’t know? Really?
More accurately, Ye is an anti-Semite who obviously has another anti-Semite and white supremacist by his side. One of those anti-Semites, Fuentes, is a holocaust denier who compared murdering Jews in ovens to baking cookies.
Trump could have said he didn’t know him, but now regrets allowing him at the meeting. He could have chastised his security detail for “letting Fuentes through” the gates without proper vetting, and promised it wouldn’t happen again — but no — it is the media at fault for accurately describing his dinner guest, an avowed white supremacist.
Even Fox News condemned the meeting with a headline saying — “Trump’s former US ambassador to Israel blasts meeting with Ye, Nick Fuentes: ‘You are better than this,'”
The ambassador did indeed “blast” Trump, saying in a statement on Twitter– “To my friend Donald Trump, you are better than this. Even a social visit from an anti-Semite like Kanye West and human scum like Nick Fuentes is unacceptable. I urge you to throw those bums out, disavow them and relegate them to the dustbin of history where they belong.”
Trump did no such thing for his Jewish friend, instead choosing to attack and condemn everyone and everything but them. That alone speaks volumes.
