Trump On COVID: People Are Saying ‘Whatever – Just Leave Us Alone’

A new report from the Senate Judiciary committee reveals new details of Donald Trump's pressure campaign to have the Justice Department overturn the 2020 election

Donald Trump is D-O-N-E done with the coronavirus pandemic.

During a conference call with campaign staffers, Trump expressed frustration with infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci and other health officials calling them ‘idiots.’

From Politico:

“People are tired of Covid. People are saying, ‘Whatever, just leave us alone.’ People are tired of hearing Fauci and all these idiots,” Trump said on the call, which included press.

“He’s been here for, like, 500 years. He’s like this wonderful sage telling us how — Fauci, if we listened to him, we’d have 700,000 [or] 800,000 deaths.”

Trump described Fauci as a “disaster” and added that “every time he goes on television, there’s always a bomb. But there’s a bigger bomb if you fire him.”

Trump also commented on the call that he “couldn’t care less” if the media reported the remarks.

“If there’s a reporter on, you can have it just the way I said it. I couldn’t care less.”

Trump’s statement was probably in response to an interview Fauci gave CBS’s 60 Minutes where he told the venerable news magazine that Trump’s reluctance to wear a face mask in public is because he “equates wearing a mask with weakness.”

“You know, a statement of strength,” Fauci said. “Like, ‘We’re strong. We don’t need a mask.’ That kind of thing.”

Asked if that makes sense from a scientific stand point when facing a pandemic, Fauci answered, “No, it doesn’t. Of course not.”

Shopper Goes Cray-Cray Over Face Mask Rule “False Flag Fake Pandemic”

A shopper in Florida went totally cray-cray when he tried to enter a Publix grocery store located in Miami Beach but refused to wear a face mask due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

His profanity-laced rant was captured by a code enforcement officer’s body cam.

“This is a false flag fake pandemic,” the man screams at the enforcement officer. “You are in violation of my f**king constitutional rights and my civil rights. I’ve already f**king warned you. F**king expect it. I’m filing a f**king class-action lawsuit. You can take your fake f**king global terroristic false flag attack and shove it up your motherf**king ass. You’re terrorists. You’re in violation of my constitutional and civil rights. Fuck you, motherf**ker. There’s no pandemic. I’m filing a f**king lawsuit. I have a right to buy groceries without being forced to participate in your f**king terrorism. F**k you.”

“Excuse me – you need to wear a mask,” asked the officer as the man turned to go. “Do you understand that – to come in the store?”

“You’re violating my constitutional rights,” shrieks the man.

“Well, this is private property,” replied the officer.

The idiot continued his conspiracy theory screed: “This private property has food. I have a right to buy food without being forced to participate in a fake global false flag pandemic. There’s no pandemic. F–k you. You motherf–kers are going to get f–kin’ mass arrested and f–kin’ executed for f–kin’ terrorism. F–k you!”

The local CBS affiliate spoke to Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber about people not following safety guidelines.

“I get that people are getting antsy, frustrated. I’m sure there is economic burden also that is feeding that kind of frustration,” said Gelber. “But you should never just scream, curse.”

“They’re only trying to keep communities safer by let people know what’s in their best interest to keep their families safer,” he said. “We shouldn’t be screaming, we should be thanking them, complying with these very clear regulations because they’re intended to save lives.”

Elton John Drops F-Bomb Tirade On Security Guards Mid-Song

Pop superstar Elton John shocked his audience on Sunday when he stopped mid-song to go on a curse-laden rant at two security guards

“Hey, you two security guards with the girl. F— off. Bring her back here immediately,” he said. “Come on you c—s. Morons, you both are, morons. You don’t treat girls like that. Leave her alone, you turds.”

After hearing some gasps from the audience for using the c-word, Elton John apologized.

“I apologize for the ‘c-word,’ I just hate people being assaulted, especially women by security guards. I have a pet hate of security guards anyway.”

Speaking to the Australian morning show Sunrise, journalist Peter Ford came to the defense of the security guards and added some behind-the-scenes info:

“A patron was in an area where she was not ticketed to be. The security guards, acting on the instructions of Elton John’s own team, tried to get her out. Elton caught it out of the corner of his eye and decided, I think, to play to the crowd by going on this rant.

“These were two people doing their job. Imagine how demeaned they would have felt at being abused by Elton John on the stage and then to have thousands of people in the crowd cheer him on. I think it was an appalling thing to do. If he’s got an issue he should be taking it up with his team, and today he should offer some sort of apology to the guards.”

Kathy Griffin’s 17-Minute Rant On TMZ’s Harvey Levin & Bravo’s Andy Cohen

If you are into celebrity feuds, you may be interested in this video posted by Kathy Griffin who is apparently persona non grata everywhere after her “beheaded Trump” schtick some months ago.

Over 17 minutes, Griffin gets around to trashing Harvey Levin of TMZ, Jeff Zucker of CNN, Andy Cohen of Bravo and more.

Watch below as it’s currently trending all over the interwebs.

And all the while, Andy Cohen (who has replaced Griffin for CNN’s New Year’s Eve broadcast) played dumb during an airport interview saying he didn’t know who Kathy Griffin is.

(He was the Bravo executive who oversaw her show My Life On The D-List).

WH Comm Director Goes On Unhinged Rant: “Reince Priebus Is A F*cking Paranoid Schizophrenic”

Wow.

Ryan Lizza of The New Yorker got a phone call last night from newly-installed White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci who was all worked up that Lizza had tweeted about a dinner between Scaramucci, Donald Trump, and Fox News personality Sean Hannity.

Scaramucci demanded Lizza tell him who leaked the info.

Lizza reported the conversation today, and whoo-boy…

Here’s an excerpt. Clearly, Scaramucci doesn’t know the phrase “off the record.”

I asked him why it was so important for the dinner to be kept a secret. Surely, I said, it would become public at some point. “I’ve asked people not to leak things for a period of time and give me a honeymoon period,” he said. “They won’t do it.” He was getting more and more worked up, and he eventually convinced himself that Priebus was my source.

“They’ll all be fired by me,” he said. “I fired one guy the other day. I have three to four people I’ll fire tomorrow. I’ll get to the person who leaked that to you. Reince Priebus—if you want to leak something—he’ll be asked to resign very shortly.” The issue, he said, was that he believed Priebus had been worried about the dinner because he hadn’t been invited.

“Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,” Scaramucci said. He channeled Priebus as he spoke: “ ‘Oh, Bill Shine is coming in. Let me leak the fucking thing and see if I can cock-block these people the way I cock-blocked Scaramucci for six months.’ ” (Priebus did not respond to a request for comment.)

Scaramucci also told me that, unlike other senior officials, he had no interest in media attention. “I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock,” he said, speaking of Trump’s chief strategist. “I’m not trying to build my own brand off the fucking strength of the President. I’m here to serve the country.” (Bannon declined to comment.)

First of all, a “communications director” talks like that to the press?

Second, I’m guessing Lizza won’t be getting many more phone calls from the “Mooch.”

And finally, this is all kinda funny when you know how mild-mannered Ryan Lizza is. Picturing him on the end of this phone call makes me laugh.

And, one last tweet from the “Mooch” himself:

Trump Supporter Goes On Expletive Laced Rant On MSNBC

Check this UNEDITED incident that happened last night in front of Trump Tower in New York City.

Cal Perry, senior news editor for MSNBC, was in the middle of an interview with a Trump protester when an unidentified Trump supporter interrupted and began a expletive-laced rant at the reporter and the media in general.

“You don’t include the fact that we have an awesome, an awesome president now who took a step down from unappreciative motherf—–s,” the woman yelled.

Perry took the rant in stride letting her have her say. When he asked her name for identification she said, “You’re not getting my name, you’re getting a f— you.”

Congressional Candidate Dan Bongino’s Epic Curse-Laden Tirade Against Reporter

Politico reporter Marc Caputo was following a story via Twitter where Congressional candidate and former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino had attacked the Naples Daily News for what he called “propaganda” in a story the paper had published about him.

Caputo atempted to clarify, via Twitter, exactly what Bongino felt was “propaganda” in the article.

From Politico:

The newspaper had reported Sunday that Bongino was “lacking” financial backing from the district, noting that only 6 percent of itemized donations came from Collier and Lee counties. Citing Federal Election Commission records, it also reported that he raised “a disproportionate amount of his money from donations of less than $200.”

Bongino asked Caputo to call him and, after a long back and forth of exchanges on Twitter, he gave his telephone number after being told the conversation would be recorded. Bongino later hung up after losing his temper and shouting “shut the fuck up! … Go fuck yourself, you piece of shit!”

The full, recorded conversation is below. While the 17 minute length might seem long for casual web surfing, I found it highly enlightening that a candidate for Congress would act out in this manner speaking to the press, especially when Caputo had expressly communicated that he was going to be recording the conversation.

Some of Bongino’s comments are captured for closed-captioning. I’ve included a few screen captures of the actual recording.

Greta Van Susteren: Put Harriet Tubman On The $25 Bill

Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren closed her show last night with an off-pitch rant regarding the news that ‘Underground Railroad’ hero, Harriet Tubman, will be replacing slave-owner President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill.

Van Susteren said the Obama administration “went stupid” and was dividing the country with a “completely unnecessary fight,” closing with this:

“Give Tubman her own bill. Like a $25 bill. We could use a $25 bill. Put her picture on that and we could all celebrate. That’s the smart and easy thing to do. But no, some people don’t think and would gratuitously stir up conflict in the nation. That is so awful, and yes, dumb.”


“Jalapeno Mac & Cheese” Brat Charged After Drunken Rant

Talk about a serving of justice served cold.

From Huffington Post:

Luke Gatti, 19, of Bayville, New York, was charged with breach of peace and criminal trespass, the Hartford Courant reported.

In a viral YouTube video of the incident, titled “Drunk Kid Wants Mac And Cheese,” Gatti can be seen telling the manager of Union Street Market, “Just give me some f–king bacon, jalepeno mac and cheese” and verbally abusing him. The manager tells the student, “You can’t come in here with an open bottle of booze, dude. Think about it!”
