TRUMP TO INFINITY AND BEYOND HQ - The Great and Positive Place


Recommended Posts

Biden press secretary isn’t even denying that they are putting ANSWERS to pre selected questions on a teleprompter for Biden  to read. 
 

Quote

Biden 2020 national press secretary T.J. Ducklo refused to answer Fox News anchor Bret Baier on Thursday as he repeatedly asked whether Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's campaign is providing the former vice president a teleprompter during question-and-answer sessions with reporters and supporters.

The Biden aide made an appearance on Baier's "Special Report" and accused the anchor of using "Trump campaign talking points" in asking about whether the campaign uses teleprompters to answer questions during briefings.

"Has Joe Biden ever used a teleprompter during local interviews or to answer Q&As with supporters?” Baier asked.

“We’re not,” Ducklo said, before shifting to saying Baier was using “Trump campaign talking points.”

“Well, yeah, they’re using it,” Baier replied. 

“What it does, Bret, it’s trying to distract the American people," Ducklo argued. 

“They’re using it, they talk about it every day. Can you say yes or no?” Baier pressed. 

“They talk about it every day, Bret, because they don’t have a coherent strategy—" Ducklo replied.

“Well you haven’t answered, yes or no,” Baier injected.

“They talk about it every day because they don’t have a coherent argument for why Donald Trumpdeserves reelection, deserves four more years,” Ducklo said. “We know that he lied to the American people and has not shown leadership, and they’re desperate they can to throw anything against the wall for that fact.”

“I understand, but you can’t answer the question,” Baier noted.

“I am not going to allow the Trump campaign to funnel their questions through Fox News and get me to respond to that,” Ducklo said of the questioning.

The anchor's question may have been prompted by an interview excerpt earlier this week showing Biden being virtually interviewed. At one point, Biden is asked a question but says "move it up here" to someone off camera before responding.

A Walled Lake teacher fired after tweeting about President Donald Trump and "liberals" was offered his job back a day after his story went viral, but declined the offer on the belief that "the issue would follow him into the classroom."

Justin Kucera, a 28-year-old social studies teacher at Walled Lake Western High School, wasn't fired for a tweet supporting President Donald Trump but for a reply that later was deleted saying, "liberals suck man," according to a copy of the teacher's personnel file obtained through a public records request. 

Kucera's official reason for termination was "a lack of professional judgement," according to a July 17 termination letter that followed two Zoom meetings in which he was asked about his July 6 tweets about the president and liberals. 

Kucera did not return a call and text seeking comment. 

The July 10 and July 15 Zoom meetings were not recorded, but accounts from two employees who attended the meetings indicate that Kucera said he was attempting to be sarcastic when he wrote "Liberals suck man." He took the post down when he realized "that sarcasm does not come across well on Twitter."

Kucera recognized such a tweet could make at least "50%" of students upset and said he wanted to apologize to Walled Lake Consolidated Schools District Superintendent Ken Gutman and Walled Lake Western High School Principal Ali Hamka, according to the accounts  of the Zoom meetings included in Kucera's personnel file. Neither Gutman nor Hamka were in attendance at the meeting. 

Kucera was given the chance to resign July 15 with a "neutral letter of recommendation," as well as uncontested unemployment and health benefits through the end of August, according to the personnel file.

What happened to the principal who tweeted F-the police?  I think it was somewhere in NY?

Everybody who I know who might vote for Biden doesn’t want to talk about it because they know he’s such an awful candidate. My bother is a big liberal and he and his circle of snobs are completely demoralized by Biden, it’s worse than Hillary in 2016. There is absolutely no enthusiasm for Joe Biden in the real world. 

This is truth. I see on Twitter all the time, people who are just Blasting trump and begging people to vote for Biden are consistently, actually, literally using hashtags to #settleforjoe. America has never "settled". That is why we are a great country.

A business partner of mine recently came back from traveling the entire eastern side of the USA and he said "I can tell you who is going to win the election.  

1. Trump

2. Yard sale

3. Biden

Because everywhere I travel, I see Trump signs all over...followed by yard sale signs...and sometimes a Biden sign."

I thought that was funny.

If you aren’t a raging Trump hater best to go other places for politics, think everyone has accepted.

the anti Trump crowd couldn't resist making this thread theirs.  

 

Remember the poll several months back that said this place was 85% anti-Trump?  Redo that poll now and I bet its 95%+ and people act like they have no idea why.

It's not conservatives burning down cities.  It's not conservatives allowing the destruction, looting, shaming of old people at restaurants.  It's evident who runs these cities and allow this chaos to occur.   Portland mayor said if Trump get's the Feds out of his city things will be fine.  how is that working out? 

I hope Trump wins.

Executive order on health care, great!

It took three years, but 2 weeks finally came. But wait a moment. 

>> We have a new executive order on health care! It's a glorified press release, nothing more -- and one that should be treated as the pathetic document that it is. 

The mendaciousness on display here is kinda breathtaking. Trump says that "access to health insurance despite underlying health conditions should be maintained, even if the Supreme Court invalidates the unconstitutional, and largely harmful, ACA." BUT HOW? <<

Very true, very true. I hope so as well but it’s an uphill battle with the media 99% against him.

The bar is set so low for ol Joe, all he has to do is show up sadly. 

1- Show up.

2- Not let Trump get him upset.

3- Keep from stumblin and bumblin and showing his cognitive decline.

It's going to be a real test.  Best case for him is hitting that low bar, worst case is he accidentally spits out one of his patented slurs.

I hope Trump's handlers have him geared up to push every one if his buttons starting with Hunter.  Or maybe just go right after his aptitude.

You only got yourselves to blame for that. All we have heard for months is that he has mentally deteriorated, can't put two coherent sentences together, talk without a teleprompter, doesn't know where he is and has been hidden in his basement because of it. Add to that dozens of misleadingly edited videos (many taken out of context) to make him look as bad as possible.

Yes, as long as he doesn't knock over the podium or babble incoherently the entire time, it will be a considered a win.

Hannity last night was already trying to spin Biden exceeding the lowered expectations - something to the effect that he has had nothing to do the last few months but prepare for the debates and his handlers each day are having him memorize a couple sentences of talking points for each debate issue and he will regurgitate that to give the impression that he understands what he is saying.  :D

It wasn't a falsehood. Who else has been repeating these memes about Biden in this thread and on this forum for months?

Trump supporters are responsible for the bar being set so low for Biden tonight?  Did I understand that right?

Yes, just like Obama supporters and Democrats were equally responsible for setting a low bar for Sarah Palin before her 2008 debate with Biden by labeling her as, um, not being very bright.

The best part is that it is killing them with senior voters, and yet they persist.

“Spamming” is used as a one way tool to suspend here.

Actually, "Spamming" is the default option when issuing a suspension. Sometimes, there isn't a category that really fits the offense -- likely because "You're being an obnoxious tool; please stop it" isn't a option in the drop-down menu, so the person issuing the suspension just leaves the default option.

Sorry for the confusion.

It’s almost like Biden supporters want us to forget Joe Biden has literally been doing to for 50 years. Biden should have a huge bar to get over.

Has he accomplished anything in the last 50 years in politics? So he's been sand bagging and is going to turn it on all of the sudden and get serious? He's a baffling nominee.

Not sure is this video has been posted, but President Trump is such a good man with a giant heart. 

 

Rogan O’Handley@DC_Draino

Jay Barrett, a Trump supporter from CT, was diagnosed with terminal Cystic Fibrosis back in 2019

He said his dying wish was to talk w/ President Trump

President Trump made it happen

Jay unfortunately died days later but his family said he had the time of his life on this call

He’s made his son and himself very rich

That's true and very interesting as a blind eye has been turned especially to his sons questionable methods of getting rich while Trump sparks outrage with his net worth shrinking due to being POTUS.

Like most things this is going to backfire.  I don't think putting more voices in Joe's head is going to help.  He's likely to start talking back to the coach thinking it was Wallace or Trump saying that.

Remember back to all the time dedicated to the Russia hoax and all the times we heard “this is it, he’s done!”. Truly amazing, here we are...2020.
