Trump is really uniting those Republicans, isn’t he?

The executive director of the Log Cabin Republicans — the group’s first woman to have that position — has resigned following the group’s endorsement of President Trump’s reelection, the second official to step down in as many weeks.

The group’s chairman, Robert Kabel, and vice chair, Jill Homan, made the surprise endorsement in an Aug. 15 op-ed for the Washington Post, crediting the president with “removing gay rights as a wedge issue from the old Republican playbook” and “taking bold actions that benefit the LGBTQ community.” The organization did not make an endorsement in 2016.

“While we do not agree with every policy or platform position presented by the White House or the Republican Party,” they added, “we share a commitment to individual responsibility, personal freedom and a strong national defense.”

According to the Washington Blade, the group’s executive director, Jerri Ann Henry, resigned over “discontent with Trump and dissatisfaction with Log Cabin’s approach to defending its Trump endorsement in the media.” Henry was named to the position in November 2018.

Once again this is yet another group who I have trouble understanding how they can associate themselves with the Republicans. 

You know, along with women, blacks, and patriots. 

If Trump accomplishes anything, it might be to finally force some of these groups to recognize that they have been supporting folks who care nothing for them and only use them for votes and to provide political cover.

    There has never been a time in the history of our Country that the Media was so Fraudulent, Fake, or Corrupt! When the “Age of Trump” is looked back on many years from now, I only hope that a big part of my legacy will be the exposing of massive dishonesty in the Fake News!

    The Age Of Trump is an era that will be remembered by historians as a time of attacks on freedom and weakening of democracy in the United States.

      “now, the country is used to Trump’s “fake news” and “enemy of the people” rhetoric. The constant repetition of those messages is no accident: His overarching goal is to try to discredit the press and reduce the impact of reporting that exposes his administration’s lies, negligence, and failures and his own possible criminality.”
      “he is now also seeking to whip up a conspiracy theory about the Democratic Party and the news media and position the press as a scapegoat for a potential economic recession.”

      ““The Media is destroying the Free Press!” he tweeted late this month, echoing one of his favorite right-wing radio hosts. “So True!”

      ” Democrats and “the media mob” were now “trying to talk the US into an economic recession,” Hannity said on his primetime show. “They want people to suffer. Why? So they can get back power and President Trump will lose the election. You know what? It doesn’t get any sicker than what these people are doing.”<RiiiggghhhttT

    “I think they’re making a big mistake because Fox was treated very badly by the Democrats. Very, very badly. Having to do with the debates and other things,” Trump went on.
    “I think Fox is making a big mistake because, you know, I’M the one who calls the shots on that — on the really big debates.”

    he is “not happy” with the conservative-leaning news network…
    “We have to start looking for a new News Outlet. Fox isn’t working for us anymore!”
    “The polls are phony too. And in all fairness, among my worst polls always is Fox. I have to say that.”

    ““So I don’t understand,” Kilmeade added. “If Fox comes out, if somebody comes on and is critical about one thing about you, it never used to bother you like that. Now yesterday, I read those tweets and was hoping to get you on today—you’re so kind to come on, I appreciate it—and I thought to myself: ‘What’s bothering you about it?’ Because our channel prides itself on diversity and getting everybody in so you don’t have to flip around.”” flop.

    “If The_Donald disappears from the internet, or is forced to regroup on a more isolated platform, the change could have an effect far beyond the subreddit, or even Reddit as a whole. The community is very active, with over 774,000 members, and it boasts that memes created for or spread on the board have been reposted by President Trump and his son Donald Trump Jr.
    Finding a new home for The_Donald is difficult because no other platform has everything its Reddit users have come to expect”

    ““I can’t imagine an investigation of the Republican nominee for president — a counterintelligence investigation of his campaign — was not approved at the highest level,” Graham claimed. “I cannot imagine it happening without somebody in the White House knowing about it.” – “Asked by the host if he would be interested in calling in Obama to testify under oath, Graham said ” Absolutely.,” MSN reports.

    Graham said he also intends on calling in former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper to testify.

    “And yes, I’d like to know what President Obama thought about the investigation,” ”

    “Will these millions of workers grasp that Trump is abusing them to satisfy his whims? Or will they react more like battered spouses who keep returning for more abuse because they cannot see the harsh reality of their situation?”

    As I type, the Trump Regime is actively working towards enabling medical professionals to deny health care to gay people if they hold their religion above their medical ethics. They are using the stalking horse of abortion.

    Apparently all it needs is a regulation, not an act of congress- although a bill for it was drawn up by House Republicans immediately after Trump was elected. They recognized Satan when they saw him.

    And…..TONGASSSSSSS
