Trump ‘Spiritual Biographer’ Has Epic Twitter Meltdown After False Prediction President Would Crush Pelosi

Published

on

Christian Broadcasting Network analyst David Brody, who authored a “spiritual biography” of President Donald Trump that detailed his purportedly deep Christian faith, had a meltdown on Twitter Thursday after the president caved to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to cancel his State of the Union address.

Just over one week ago, Brody boldly predicted that Pelosi’s move to rescind Trump’s SOTU invitation would blow up in her face.

“If Speaker Pelosi thinks her State of the Union stunt can outmaneuver Donald Trump, she’s in for a rude awakening,” Brody wrote. “Pelosi is playing checkers. Trump is playing chess.”

When Trump caved to Pelosi on Wednesday night, Brody was forced to admit that his prediction had turned out to be incorrect — but he nonetheless insisted Trump was in a stronger position politically now than he had been before backing down.

“Decision by Donald Trump to not do SOTU next week seems like a victory for Speaker Pelosi BUT she now owns the pettiness of the move and a position of no compromise,” Brody wrote. “Ultimately, POTUS looking like the adult in room could prove PR dividends in who wins this war of attrition.”

This declaration similarly drew widespread ridicule across the internet, which spurred Brody to defensively lash out at his critics.

Among others, he hit back at former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti, who roasted Brody for claiming that Trump looks more “adult” after getting schooled by Pelosi.

“Get your facts straight!” he scolded Mariotti. “I didn’t call him the adult in the room. I said ‘looking like the adult in the room.’ It’s called changing the perception. Please don’t take me out of context.”

50,000+ Sign Petition to Make Donald Trump’s Home Address ‘President Barack H. Obama Avenue’

Published

on

More than 50,000 people have signed a petition urging the City of New York to change the strip of Fifth Avenue in front of Trump Tower to President Barack H. Obama Avenue.

The petition at MoveOn.org, a progressive public policy advocacy group, notes the City of Los Angeles recently honored former President Barack Obama by renaming a portion of a Downtown L.A.  freeway in his honor.

“We request the New York City Mayor and City Council do the same by renaming a block of Fifth Avenue after the former president whose many accomplishments include: saving our nation from the Great Recession; serving two completely scandal-free terms in office; and taking out Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind September 11th.”

Comments from some recent signers offer an insight in to their motivations.

“Make the other street Senator McCain”

“Wish Obama could run again”

“The tenants could at least have an honorable name in their address to offset the dishonorable name on their building.”

“New Yorker, here… Make this happen!”

“Thank You President Obama! #ImpeachTrump”

“Greatest president in modern history!”

The petition has been receiving more attention on social media after someone tweeted out its existence on Saturday. It’s now receiving much more attention.

The petition, which has been online since at least December 2018, will need to be around for a long time. 6sqft, citing The New-York Historical Society and an official NYC Media office, reports that among the prerequisites for getting a street renamed to honor someone, “the honoree must no longer be living.”

Trump Attacks Baltimore as House GOP Schedules Annual Private Retreat There – With President Expected to Speak

Published

on

President Donald Trump is expected to speak in September at the House Republicans’ annual private retreat in the city the president just called “the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States”: Baltimore, Maryland.

“No human being would want to live there,” Trump tweeted over the weekend in an unprecedented, racist attack against a venerated Democratic Congressman, Elijah Cummings. He also called the “Charm City” a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess,” and a “very dangerous & filthy place.”

Trump, as is tradition, is expected to address the GOP lawmakers during their annual retreat – meaning he would have to travel to the town he labeled a “corrupt mess” on Saturday.

The Washington Post, which first reported the GOP’s latest plans, say it “could present an uncomfortable situation for Trump.”

Video Mocking Straight Pride Day Declares Adam and Eve Were Victims of Heterophobic Housing Discrimination

Published

on

A video mocking “Heterosexual Pride Day” – which is actually now a thing – is getting a lot of attention on social media. Created by actor, writer, and activist Dylan Marron, the video amusingly explains how Adam and Eve became the first victims of heterophobic housing discrimination when they were kicked out of the Garden of Eden.

Marron packs the two-minute video with thought-filled quips from the very beginning, noting that every day is Straight Pride Day, and if you are straight and breathing you are already participating. He also mockingly says that gay people were invented in the 20th century to “threaten” straight peoples’ love.

No more spoilers!

The entire video deserves your two minutes and 15 seconds because it’s both funny and a blow to the ridiculousness of “Straight Pride Day.”
