Trump Insanely Claims if Joe Biden Were a Republican He Would Have Been Be Executed ‘By Right Now’
President Donald Trump just unleashed one of – if not his most – violent and vile attacks on any political opponent to date. Suggesting Joe Biden has committed a capital offense, for which there is absolutely no evidence, the president said had the former Vice President and his son Hunter Biden been Republicans they would have already been executed.
“If a Republican ever did what Joe Biden did, if a Republican ever said what Joe Biden said, they’d be getting the electric chair by right now,” Trump claimed, after telling reporters “Joe Biden and his son are corrupt,” without any evidence.
“But the fake news doesn’t want to report it, because they’re Democrats,” Trump added.
The president, who made his remarks from the United Nations, went on to call the media “crooked as hell.”

Army Soldier Who Allegedly Discussed Plans to Bomb a Major News Network Arrested by FBI: Report
A U.S. Army soldier has been arrested after allegedly discussing plans to blow up a major American news network, and allegedly suggesting targeting Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke has been arrested by the FBI. The suspect, Jarrett William Smith, also allegedly wanted to travel to Ukraine to fight a violent far-right group, and distribute information about how to make bombs, according to ABC News.
“A large vehicle bomb,” Smith allegedly said when discussing wanting to blow up a major news network’s headquarters. “Fill a vehicle full of [explosives] then fill a ping pong ball with [commonly available chemical] via drilling then injection. Put the ball in the tank of the vehicle and leave. 30 minutes later, BOOM.”
In suggesting targeting former U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, Smith reportedly had this conversation:
“You got anyone down in Texas that would be a good fit for fire, destruction and death?” an undercover FBI agent asked.
“Outside of Beto? I don’t know enough people that would be relevant enough to cause a change if they died,” Smith allegedly replied.
Speaking to an FBI informant Smith allegedly “discussed a plan for an attack inside the U.S., his search for more ‘radicals’ like himself, and the possibility of killing members of the group Antifa.”
Leading a Facebook group chat Smith also allegedly told another suspect, “Oh yeah, I got knowledge of IEDs for days. We can make cell phone IEDs in the style of the Afghans. I can teach you that.”
Smith “has been charged in Kansas with distributing information relating to weapons of mass destruction.”
GOP Mass Exodus: ‘Staggering’ Number of House Republicans Leaving – One Way or Another – Since Trump Became President
The ongoing GOP mass exodus is even larger than many may have realized. Nearly four out of every ten Republican Representatives who were in office the day Donald Trump was sworn in as president no longer are or have announced they no longer will be U.S. Congressmen or Congresswomen.
The Washington Post reports that in the almost three years since Trump took office, due to resignations, retirements, and election losses “nearly 40 percent of the 241 Republicans who were in office in January 2017 are gone or leaving.”
Calling the retirement numbers alone “particularly staggering,” the Post reports “41 House Republicans have left national politics or announced they won’t seek reelection” since Trump took office – and that does not include election losses.
16 of those 41 resignations and retirements are from this year alone. Two more resignations are to run for the Senate.
“That dwarfs the 25 Democrats who retired in the first four years of former president Barack Obama’s tenure — and Republicans privately predict this is only the beginning.”
Publicly many of these Republicans “cite family as the reason for leaving,” but privately they point to the direction Trump has taken the GOP, and their “pessimism” about retaking the House majority next year.
