Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Interview with a cockwomble edition

Well, I guess everybody and his / her brother / sister has seen The Darnold’s – interesting – AXIOS interview by this point.

Unfortunately (for them), so have the Freeperati :

{Barf Alert – MSM} Trump Collapses Under Pressure of Extremely Basic Follow-Up Questions About COVID-19
Rolling Stone ^ | 5 August 2020 | Ryan Bort

Posted on 8/7/2020, 4:12:11 AM by Cronos

…We caught a glimpse of it last month when Chris Wallace of Fox News dismantled Trump’s argument that Joe Biden wants to defund the police. But we saw the complete picture on Monday night when with the help of a few color-coordinated charts the president hopelessly stumbled and bumbled his way through a train wreck of an interview with Jonathan Swan of Axios, which aired on HBO. … Because the president didn’t have the luxury of calling on another reporter, he was forced to at least attempt to clarify his nonsensical arguments, like why the percentage of the American population that has died due to COVID-19 complications isn’t really that important. He could not do this, of course, and the result was one of the most incoherent, depressing, and flat-out embarrassing interviews of Trump’s presidency.

…jonathanvswan: “Oh, you’re doing death as a proportion of cases. I’m talking about death as a proportion of population. That’s where the U.S. is really bad. Much worse than South Korea, Germany, etc.”

realdonaldtrump: “You can’t do that.” … When Swan points out that only 300 people in South Korea have died, out of a population of over 50 million, Trump says, “You don’t know that,” implying the nation is lying about its death rate.

(Excerpt)


The MSM is having a field day.
Noticed that, did you?
Why did President Trump deign to be interviewed by this “journalist”?

Because he thinks everyone on this planet was born to kiss his ass?

President Trump should not be falling for MSM tactics and should just wait for the debates – he’ll demolish Biden

First of all – “Barf alert”?
               “I resent that!”
To: Cronos


he’ll demolish Biden’

you’re certain of that, are you…? because Trump has set Biden up as such a dummy, it will be simple for Joe to hold his own in the debate, simply by not drooling and soiling his pants… and if there’s one thing Biden is a master at, it’s obfuscating so much that the other guy can’t get a point across…

Trump won’t have the luxury of debating an overconfident, under informed ideologue like Hillary Clinton this time, who was easy to fluster; and if Trump gets knocked off stride like this guy did to him, we’ll be looking at the most inept debate contestants in quite some time.

Also, if The Darnold tries to hover over Uncle Joe’s shoulder like he hovered over Hillary’s at their debate, I feel like Biden might turn around, and the next thing Traitor Tot knows, he’ll be on his back looking at the stage lighting.
To: Cronos 

It doesn’t look good to dismiss the number of deaths.

It is what it is.

I hope he comes up with a better response because this question will be asked again.

I didn’t want to say this before, but his answers are possibly showing signs of dementia. I hope it’s not true, but he’s been pretty out of it this whole year.

Yeah, at best he’s clearly tired. I’m really hoping that’s all it is and for God’s sake keep him away from Twitter for awhile!

Good luck with that one.

I really hope that’s the case, but this was a bad interview. I haven’t seen it posted anywhere else so hopefully nobody actually saw it.

More “Dementia Donnie” musings below the fold….

Ah yes – twitter twatting.
One Freeper says he should keep tweeting, but limit his output.
To: dynoman


He seems to be posting a bit less. Which is good. We don’t know if they’re actually him or a handler. A weekly tweet is probably great, a daily or more is not.

As opposed to ten tweets between midnight and 3AM?

Twitter is how a leader keeps in touch with the common people. he shouldn’t stop, or the Dims win

I agree completely. In fact, Donnie Dotard should triple his output.

At least 30 tweets and retweets today.

In reversal, Trump urges Floridians to vote by mail The Washington Times ^ | Aug 4, 2020 | Dave Boyer Posted on 8/4/2020, 3:35:24 PM by Brilliant

President Trump urged Florida residents Tuesday to vote by mail, after months of criticizing mail-in voting as susceptible to fraud.

“Whether you call it Vote by Mail or Absentee Voting, in Florida the election system is Safe and Secure, Tried and True,” Mr. Trump tweeted. “Florida’s Voting system has been cleaned up (we defeated Democrats attempts at change), so in Florida I encourage all to request a Ballot & Vote by Mail! #MAGA”

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said the president “has always said that absentee voting for a reason is different than mass mail-out voting…”

Florida Republican officials have expressed concern that the president’s campaign against mail-in voting is suppressing the number of GOP voters who are taking part in it, while Democrats are voting by mail in large numbers.


If you decide NOT to vote by mail, then don’t chicken out due to COVID. And if you think you might chicken out,
then request a ballot by mail now. You need to do it well before the election.

Has he been hacked? Vote by mail is a scheme to get democrats elected by ballot harvesting. To get democrats elected to everything, everywhere.

To: Freee-dame
The state of Oregon says it has been using mail in voting for a long time with no problem. 

The state of Utah has been doing the same and they’re as Republican as you can get.

Two reversals in 24 hours–first the “Patriots Wear Masks” email last night, now support for vote by mail.

So – we have two diametrically opposed camps here –
The “Mail-in ballots mean Democrats voting from the grave” squad, and the “Twitler says it’s good now, so now it is good!” squad.
I’m just going to go to another thread and let them have at each other.
Let’s take a look at something all the Freeperati can agree with –  Nothing for US ???
President Trump wants to extend the $600 weekly benefit to unemployed Americans
Gray Washington News Bureau ^ | August 4, 2020 | Jacqueline Policastro
Posted on 8/4/2020, 9:55:53 PM by White Lives Matter

THE WHITE HOUSE (Gray DC) – In a broadcast exclusive, President Donald Trump tells Gray Television Washington Bureau Chief Jacqueline Policastro he’s ready to step in to provide another stimulus to Americans struggling during the coronavirus pandemic.

“The plague came in, and it’s not the people’s fault. So, we want to take care of them,” said Trump.

The president said he wants to extend the $600 weekly benefit to unemployed Americans.


Jacqueline Policastro:

Do you think people on unemployment should continue to get the extra $600 each week?

President Trump:

Yeah. I want to get them. I want to get them a lot. It’s not their fault. It’s China’s fault that this whole thing happened. We were setting records. We were doing unbelievable business. It was an incredible thing, we’ve never done so well. Breaking records on employment, on the stock market, although the stock market’s almost what it was, which is pretty incredible in itself, but we were breaking every record you can do. And then this, the plague, I call it the plague, came in and it’s not the people’s fault. So we want to take care of them. Really good. Take care of them very well.


The interview was from this evening.

Whatever at this point. Reeks of desperation though.

It’s the game that he must play and by “their” rules.

I’m sorry – exactly where in “The Art Of The Steal” is that written? Can’t seem to find it.

Not desperation, reality.

I suppose he could go hardass, which most of us would cheer all the way to President Biden.

Reality bites, but what would you expect considering the reality of current events?

To: White Lives Matter


I have to say I’m for the extra $600 to be extended, I know a lot of people who cannot return to work who made a lot more than this and won’t survive without it.

I agree with you. A lot of people who are unable to go out and get ‘laboring’ jobs, but were let go from jobs that they WERE capable of doing, are in danger of being evicted from their homes, and are having difficulty paying for the food and medicine that they need.

Hey idiots! What about an extra 600 a week for those of us who have kept working?

Well, if you still have a job, you’re not eligible for unemployment compensation.


Just so ya know….

What extra expenses are the unemployed getting that we don’t?

Do you realize how nutsy your post sounds?

Well, he IS on Free Republic….

You appear to indicate that you are working, so I assume you still have an income.

What about the people who worked for small businesses that are now closed, people who held jobs, perhaps for many years, and were laid-off and can’t find a new job quickly?

You are exhibiting the callous thoughtlessness that many attribute to the President –

It’s not a bug, it’s a feature.

while HE is exhibiting thoughtfulness and concern belated self-preservation.
