Gorka is a full-blown nazi. That's actually quite mild compared to things he's said on podcasts and such. Some of his comments on immigrants are particularly abhorrent. If anybody deserves to get a punch in the face, it's him (and Bannon).
 


Only 3 mins long but the best points (imo)

The media is crazy to think that they will be safe if/when Trump takes over. He will not allow a free press. If you don’t flatter him like a Russia / North Korea, you’re done.

The later point to those who think Trump presidency won’t be too bad, just disruptive….look at what Trump has done the the Republican Party, the Republican institution.

He has completely destroyed it. It is an institution of crazy and evil. January 2025, he will spend every day tearing down every piece of our government. Every day will be worse than the last.

The guardrails are gone. His first term and post insurrection he figured out the breaking points. The last rail to be broken was the Supreme Court.

And yet the media thinks we really need to go after Joe and his age every min of every day
 
I do wonder if part of it is thinking 2024 is lost and they don’t want to end their political career on it….

Obviously that is with a mindset that there’ll be a normal election in 2028
 
Today Show said this morning that Biden has not had a solo press conference in 20 months. If that is accurate that is a really bad look.

He is having one today, can only imagine the nightmare that will be.
 
Ugh

Joe calls Zelensky “President Putin”….the corrects himself quickly

Gaffes happen, and with Biden they do happen a lot even in his younger years

But the absolute worst possible time to happen is right now and unfortunately this will only be magnified more and more.

I really like Joe and think he’s been one of the best Presidents of my lifetime. The shit he inherited, the man he followed, and the state of world….look where we are now. On top of that inflation is lowering, interest rate cuts are on horizon….wages are up….

Yet all that will be discussed and dissected is his age and gaffes.

And on the other side you have a man spewing literal verbal garbage. Obvious signs of dementia and mental dysfunction…and he gets a pass.

In reality we have two candidates who are not physically and mentally fit, but only one is going to be pushed out of the race and it’s the one who won’t destroy the world
 
He is setup to fail. He isn’t going to magically talk like a smooth salesman.

He’s a policy guy. He’s someone he shows empathy and gives comfort. He isn’t Obama in front of 40,000 people

Every stutter, pause, eye movement is going to be dissected

He cannot win.

Look at what he’s done since the debate.

He’s done a rally, a 1:1 with ABC, he’s travelled across the country, across the Atlantic….

Yet it’s not enough
 
These people would have dropped FDR from the ticket. He’s doing fine. It’s evident that many want Trump again so they can continue playing “resistance” and act like martyrs.

Hope they have fun in the camps
 
He actually did just fine. His brain is just fine, it’s a combination of decaying vocal cords and fumbling of words.

Stack this up against Trumps rally this week….its not even close. One guy knows domestic and foreign policy in and out

The other guy talks about batteries and sharks
 
Not sure this performance is enough to sway either side

Which is probably the worst outcome cause it continues this drama

But Trump is doing it in front of a couple thousand sycophants who lap it up whereas Biden is doing it on national TV in front of tens of millions of swing voters. Political suicide.
 
And that’s the issue. There’s two realities. One where facts matter, the other is whatever Trump is living in

Biden campaign needs to figure out the message. The policy talk doesn’t win a campaign

They need to dumb things down
