Examples of GOP Leadership

Maybe this is posted somewhere else. It's hilarious, so I'm probably not the first but can't find it. So,

Trump has another melt down, calls it a great speech (no fooling, he did)


Trump curses McConnell's name during rant at Republican donor event
The former president continued to falsely insist he won last fall's election, perpetuating a narrative that led to the deadly Capitol riot this year.

Former President Donald Trump again lashed out at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., calling the top Republican a "dumb son of a b----" and a "stone cold loser" amid a lengthy rant at a Republican donor event Saturday night in which he also reiterated his false claims of electoral victory last fall.

Trump, according to a source familiar with his remarks, said "a real leader" never would have accepted the electoral results. That narrative, which Trump spun for months after losing last fall, led to the deadly Capitol riot on Jan. 6 and his second impeachment trial soon after.


During his half-hour long rant where he went completely off script (no surprises there), he doubled down on all of his pet lies and even insulted McConnell's wife for quitting on him after his white nationalists failed to overthrow our government:

speaking Saturday, Trump also mocked former Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, who resigned from his administration after the riot and is married to McConnell."

"I hired his wife. Did he ever say thank you?" Trump said, adding sarcastically on her decision to resign after Jan. 6: "She suffered so greatly."

While attacking McConnell and other Republicans in his address, particularly those who voted against him in the most recent impeachment proceedings, Trump also called for party unity.

In saying he was "so disappointed" with Pence for affirming President Joe Biden's victory, Trump added, "I like him so much."

He praised attendees of his "Save America" rally on Jan. 6 — which preceded the Capitol riot.


Of course, attacking the Capitol Building on his orders would elicit praise during this otherwise negative and red meat speech by Trump.

'White Lives Matter' rallies flop as hardly anyone shows up (nbcnews.com)

'White Lives Matter' rallies flop as hardly anyone shows up
The poor turnout underscores how the nation’s unpopular and disorganized extremist movements have been driven underground.

A single person arrived at Trump Tower for a "White Lives Matter" march and rally Sunday in New York City. The march was organized on the encrypted messaging platform Telegram over the last month with a call for nationwide action.


In semi-private, encrypted chats, neo-Nazis and other far-right extremists planned rallies in dozens of cities on Sunday to promote their racist movements and spread their ideologies to larger audiences.

Hyped by organizers as events that would make “the whole world tremble,” the rallies ran into a major problem on Sunday: Hardly anyone showed up.

The “White Lives Matter” rallies, planned on the encrypted app Telegram, were the first major real-world organization efforts by white supremacists since 2018, and after many aligned groups allegedly participated in the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S Capitol.

The poor showing underscores how the nation’s unpopular and disorganized extremist movements have been driven underground by increased scrutiny from the media, law enforcement and far left activists who infiltrate extremists’ private online spaces and disrupt their attempts to communicate and organize.

Few “White Lives Matter” marchers showed up on Sunday, but anti-racist and anti-fascist groups gathered just the same.

In Raleigh, North Carolina, a small crowd of antifa and anti-racist protesters gathered at the park where the “White Lives Matter” march was planned. They marched around downtown behind a large white sign that read, “WE ACCEPT YOUR SURRENDER.”

The lackluster events were documented by livestreams and photos posted to Twitter.

In Philadelphia, activists tweeted photos of a counterprotest picnic with pizza and Tastykake snacks. In New York City, over a dozen counterprotesters stood seemingly unopposed across the street from Trump Tower, where a “White Lives Matter” rally was expected.

Police in downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico, formed a circle around a lone protester to separate him from a large crowd of counterprotesters. Three protesters assembled around a “White Lives Matter” banner outside the city hall building in Fort Worth, Texas, where a police line separated them from a couple of dozen counterprotesters.

For the first time this last election cycle, the blue team got more dark money. This is just a continuation.

This list is a real eye opener.


Jesus they make the Catholic church look like a bunch of actual saints! Any other organization (even the church) would have been shuttered long ago.
