#GoodMorningDC. Republican infighting is the theme of the day.
Good Morning DC! Republican infighting is the theme of the day.
Trump has some thoughts about Mitt Romney. “So nice to see RINO Mitt Romney booed off the stage at the Utah Republican State Convention. They are among the earliest to have figured this guy out, a stone-cold loser!”
He did not spare Liz Cheney from his love, either.
"Heartwarming to read new polls on big-shot warmonger Liz Cheney of the great State of Wyoming," Trump began. "She is so low that her only chance would be if vast numbers of people run against her which, hopefully, won’t happen. They never liked her much, but I say she’ll never run in a Wyoming election again!"
It all started after Trump sent out an email about the election of 2020.
"The Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020 will be, from this day forth, known as THE BIG LIE!" Trump wrote in one of his digital memos.
Liz Cheney went on the record to respond that "The 2020 presidential election was not stolen. Anyone who claims it was is spreading THE BIG LIE, turning their back on the rule of law, and poisoning our democratic system."
The former president Trump is not on social media and yet, everyone is still paying attention and responding to his emails on Twitter, above all places.
Question: What's the cure for Stockholm syndrome?
“The swamp won, Donald,” the Lincoln Project stated in their latest TV ad.
"Mitch McConnell's Washington consultants are making big money using your name," says the Lincoln Project. "We don't know if Mitch gets a cut. But what do you think, Donald?"
For those of you who ask what is the point of this ad? The Lincoln Project knows that they can’t overtake the Republican Party if they don’t remove McConnell or make him their puppet. The ad they posted has nothing to do with Trump, it is all about divide and conquer.
Tomorrow, Facebook will make a decision whether or not will re-instate Trump's account. For the list of members of the board who initially voted in favor of the ban, click here.

Bill and Melinda Gates are getting a divorce after 27 years.
“After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage,” Gates said in a statement posted on Twitter.
“Over the last 27 years, we have raised three incredible children and built a foundation that works all over the world to enable all people to lead healthy, productive lives. We continue to share a belief in that mission and will continue our work together at the foundation, but we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives. We ask for space and privacy for our family as we begin to navigate this new life.”
And the money? Everyone wants to know about the money of the fourth-richest person in the world. In the meantime, know that "This marriage is irretrievably broken."
