Bannon? I think Trevor Noah described him best, "someone who looks like he's wearing the skin of another person".

Or, from Fear:

 

The first act of the Bannon drama is his appearance — the old military field jacket over multiple tennis polo shirts. The second act is his demeanor — aggressive, certain and loud.

TRUMP TO SKIP 2024 CAMPAIGN AND GO DIRECTLY TO CLAIMING HE WON

 

PALM BEACH (The Borowitz Report)—Donald J. Trump will skip the 2024 campaign and go straight to claiming that he won, the former reality-show host has confirmed.

 

Speaking to reporters, Trump said that campaigning in 2024 would be “a total waste of time because I already won that election.”

 

Asked how he could have won an election that is not scheduled to occur for another three years, he said, “People are saying that it already did happen. A lot of very smart people are calling me and saying that.”

 

Trump said that he won, “despite fraud and corruption like you wouldn’t believe. Honestly, the election was so stolen it makes the 2020 election look not stolen,” he said. “The fact that I won, even though it was very strongly stolen from me is, quite frankly, fantastic.”

 

Trump lashed out at a reporter who asked if he planned to run again in 2028. “That’s a stupid question because you already know I won that one, too.”

Radio NZ / Reuters - Trump affiliates face contempt charges if riot subpoenas not followed

breaking

 


The US House of Representatives Select Committee investigating the deadly 6 January riot at the Capitol will move criminal contempt charges against those who do not comply with its subpoenas, according to the panel's vice chair, Representative Liz Cheney.

 

The committee late last month subpoenaed four members of former President Donald Trump's administration. 

 

They were Trump's former chief of staff Mark Meadows, former White House adviser Steve Bannon, former White House Deputy Chief of Staff Dan Scavino and former Defense Department official Kash Patel.

 

The committee has already threatened criminal contempt charges against Bannon for refusing to cooperate with the inquiry into the attack, in which a mob of Trump's supporters stormed the seat of the US government. ...

Contempt of Court, while it sounds pretty mild, is in the US a really unpleasant thing to be charged with, it means you can be held under whatever conditions the court feels like for an indefinite term until they think you're no longer in contempt. The court-imposed sanctions are essentially a form of duress used to persuade people to comply with a court order, with a lot of the process falling outside the normal legal mechanisms.

Lock him [Bannon] up, seriously the guy is a useless waste of space. Ditto Rudy...and Sydney...and the My Pillow Guy...and that idiot so-called "professor" (John Eastman) who reckoned Mike Pence could just ignore the Constitution and "decide" Trump was re-elected, overturning/ignoring the votes of the millions who said otherwise.

The Washington Post -  The 5-Minute Fix

 

today

 

Did Trump just make elected Republicans’ lives a whole lot harder?

 


Today, a judge in Georgia threw out a lawsuit by Trump allies alleging fraud. (Yes, those kinds of lawsuits are still happening.)

 

Trump is banned from Twitter, but judging by the statements he’s releasing to reporters, he’s really mad about it. 

 

In one of those, he said: “If we don’t solve the Presidential Election Fraud of 2020 (which we have thoroughly and conclusively documented), Republicans will not be voting in ‘22 or ‘24. It is the single most important thing for Republicans to do.”

 

Republicans will not be voting in ‘22 or ‘24″: That’s the last thing that Republican leaders in Congress want to hear their party leader tell their party’s base - not to vote. 

 

They privately blame Trump’s false insistence that the election was stolen for how they lost the Senate in 2020; GOP voters in Georgia who feared the election was rigged didn’t turn out in as high numbers in a runoff to decide control of the upper chamber.

 

Is Trump laying the groundwork to depress Republican turnout in midterms again, for the sake of refusing to let go of his election lie? It kind of sounds like it.

Sounds good to me. If he puts Republicans off voting, he can't complain about election fraud then.

 

Who am I kidding, he probably will anyway - or find some bs excuse to come up with to justify it.

Somehow, he looks even older and more bedraggled in that pic.

 

PS: he needs to be taken down a notch, hiding behind "executive privilege", what a load of bs. You weren't even working for Trump at the time. I hope he goes down for his part in the riot (as well as all the other losers involved in it).

Mike Pence the ultimate sycophant goes grovelling back to the Maga cult...

 

“I know the media wants to distract from the Biden administration’s failed agenda by focusing on one day in January,” Pence told Sean Hannity.

 

Mike Pence

 

"Oh you've broken in to do what now? That's fine I'm sure you have your reasons. That's a lovely noose you have."

Apparently Trump is telling supporters not to vote in unfair elections. Maybe a case of I can't have it then no-one can have it. Edit: searched for news and found this headline..

"After costing his party the Senate, along with the White House, heโ€™s looking ahead: Nice elections you got there. Be a shame if something happened to them."
