Real Trump supporters:

    Although Joe Biden was sworn in as leader of the United States on Wednesday, not all of Donald Trump’s supporters have given up hope. In video footage posted in a Twitter thread by live streamer Andrew Kimmel, one supporter claimed that the real estate mogul is not done and pointed to Exodus chapter 14 of the Bible. “The Egyptians, which was a Communist regime, was chasing the Israelites and Moses,” he said. “They came right to the edge of the Red Sea, they had nowhere to go, Moses didn’t know what was gonna happen. Then God said ‘Stick out your staff’ over the Red Sea,’ and he did, and the Red Sea parted. So that’s exactly what’s going to happen here.” According to the supporter, Trump will be sworn in as head of state in March. “March 4th is the ancient time of the swearing-in of the President of the...
    Photo by Erin Scott-Pool/Getty Images. Newly-elected Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has promulgated a variety of bonkers conspiracy theories, including President Donald Trump’s baseless claims of election fraud and the smorgasbord of insanity known as QAnon. On Saturday, she found a new scoop of lunacy to add to her crazy sundae, tweeting out a statement blaming “Communist ANTIFA terrorists” and various liberal groups as the real threat.

(@mtgreenee) January 16, 2021 The first four paragraphs of Greene’s statement, posted on her Twitter account Saturday evening, blame “Communist ANTIFA terrorists,” “Marxist BLM,” and other leftist groups for “caus[ing] billions of dollars of damage to private property, historical statues and monuments, government buildings,” and “the deaths of at least 47 Americans.” At no point in her statement does Greene acknowledge the violence caused by Trump supporters at the Capitol riots...
    TWITTER CEO Jack Dorsey admitted that banning Donald Trump from the platform sets a "dangerous precedent," but insisted that the risk of more violence was a "real" threat.

    Former Republican National Committee spokesperson Elizabeth Harrington not only doesn’t believe that President Donald Trump incited a violent insurrection last week, but on Tuesday she claimed that, actually, the “real insurrection” was President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral victory. During a Tuesday morning appearance on the stridently pro-Trump cable news channel Newsmax, first spotted by Media Matters, Harrington parroted the emerging conservative talking point that impeaching Trump for inciting a seditious mob would further inflame Trump supporters and potentially plummet the country into violence. “They don’t want unity. They want uniformity,” she fumed. “That’s been the goal. They want one-party rule. That’s what they’re trying to do.” After grumbling about corporations distancing themselves from Trump and other Republicans that relentlessly pushed false claims about the election, complaining that “this is not American” before seemingly urging MAGA insurgents to continue to fight for Trump’s presidency. “And if I could just say one more...

    (CNN)President-elect Joe Biden acknowledged in a private video call with supporters on Wednesday that he will face "real brick walls" in the Senate if Republicans maintain their majority but said he thinks he can overcome the political divides that may exist."We're going to run into some real brick walls initially in the Senate, unless we're able to turn around Georgia and pick up those two seats, but even then it's going to be hard," Biden said, referring to the two Senate runoffs underway in Georgia, which won't be settled until January. "But I believe I know the place. I believe we can ultimately bring it together."Biden's comments recognize the political realities he'll face when he takes office in January with a possibly divided Congress.

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich warned on Monday that violence across the country “is going to get worse,” adding that he thinks it is “a real threat to America as a country.” “As a conservative, I find it very sobering to think that in my own country I could have somebody break into a restaurant or attack me on the street,” Gingrich, a Fox News contributor, told "America's Newsroom" referencing the violence in Washington, D.C. over the weekend. More than 20 people were reportedly arrested in response to the violence that ensued hours after tens of thousands of Trump supporters gathered in Washington, D.C. Saturday for the “MAGA Million March,” to echo the president’s claims of voter fraud and urged him not to concede to President-elect Joe Biden. The event descended into chaos after a few pro- and anti-Trump factions clashed with one another. Black-clad members of the group Refuse Fascism got into a shouting match...
    A CNN panel of Jake Tapper, Abby Phillip, and Dana Bash weighed in on President Donald Trump’s ongoing strategy of stoking false claims of fraud and attempts to undermine the legitimacy of the 2020 election results. Trump spent a second day after the election personally staying out of the public eye while flip-flopping back and forth in a whiplash-inducing narrative that pinged between anti-democratic threats like “STOP THE COUNT” to nonsensical, baseless claims like “IF YOU COUNT THE LEGAL VOTES, I EASILY WIN!” Meanwhile, Trump surrogate’s claims of voter fraud in Georgia fell apart when pressed for actual evidence, and Michigan a judge laughed a Trump campaign’s legal challenge out of court. “Whatever the president says it’s not going to affect the counting of the votes. We have a system where states are in charge of this,” Tapper pointed out, before pivoting to the possible ugly consequences of Trump’s incendiary rhetoric. “States often...
    YouTube has banned videos promoting QAnon, cracking down on videos that target an individual or group with 'conspiracy theories that have been used to justify real-world violence.' The online video service, owned by Google parent Alphabet, said on Thursday that it would begin enforcing expanded hate and harassment policies immediately and would 'ramp up' in the weeks to come. QAnon is a sprawling conspiracy theory that preposterously claims President Donald Trump is secretly battling a cabal of child-sex predators that includes prominent Democrats, Hollywood elites and 'deep state' allies.  The conspiracy theory also borrows from the bogus Pizzagate theory, which held that a pedophile ring was being run out of the basement of a pizza restaurant in Washington DC.  A man holds a Q sign and waits in line with others to enter a campaign rally with President Donald Trump in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania in August.

    If you're a white guy, and you've ever been in a job interview in which you were told "I can't hire you because you're not Black or a woman," I have important news for you: That wasn't why you didn't get hired. When a white man is up for a position and someone trots out the sad, "Oh, but I've got quotas" excuse, it is not a real thing. It is never a real thing. Never. Like … never ever. The real reason you didn’t get hired may be because your resume was light, or the interviewer is holding the position for a pal, or the interviewer just did not like the ketchup stain on your tie. It is not about hiring a woman or person of color.  But the story of getting this excuse is incredibly common. It’s used because the guy doing the interview—and it’s almost always another white guy delivering this line—just wants to get...
    There are a seemingly infinite number of stories about how Donald Trump is the worst kind of person in every possible way, so readers can be forgiven if they missed or forgot this one: In 1991, Trump, ever the soulless troll, took his then-mistress, Marla Maples, to Aspen, Colorado, to spring her on his then-wife, Ivana Trump. Accounts of the specific details vary, but converge on one central fact: The two women had a very public fight while Trump looked on, apparently with pleasure. Trump’s main memory of the event was to bask in the envy of another man who witnessed the fight, because every story Trump tells about himself (most of which, of course, aren’t true) is about how everyone else wishes they could be as awesome as him. That story has always stuck with me because it was a shining example of one of the most predictable aspects of Trump’s character: His ego comes first, always. Trump...
