‘He Has Been Building the Wall This Whole Time’
Fox News commentator Tomi Lahren is attacking President Donald Trump, and Trump supporters are attacking Tomi Lahren. While the karma is great, what’s really funny is what the Trump supporters are saying to support their president.
Lahren has an opinion on just about everything, and shares these nuggets in her “Final Thoughts” hot take videos, while occasionally appearing on “Fox & Friends” to promote her unique musings.
Her stock in trade is attacking liberals and Democrats while maintaining an elevated degree of racism that keeps her popular among the Fox News crowd.
But on Wednesday morning Lahen deviated from the formula, and channeled Ann Coulter by attacking the President over a bipartisan deal to avoid what would be Trump’s fifth government shutdown.
The deal reportedly offers no money for any new wall building, but includes $1.4 billion for 55 miles of rural area fencing. Trump had demanded $5.7 billion to build 200 miles of new, concrete wall. He got zero.
Lahen predicted that Trump will lose re-election in 2020 if he signs the deal, which he indicated Wednesday morning he will.
I’m not gonna sugar coat it, if @realDonaldTrump takes this sham border deal from the Democrats, he loses in 2020 and we ALL lose for years to come.
I’ll discuss on @foxandfriends in 10 mins!

Trump supporters went ballistic, tossing embarrassingly false claims at her, like, “he is building the wall & has been since day one,” “Year one he had his own a party against him,” “He works harder than any other president,” and “He’s a master at negotiation.”
Take a look and laugh – or cry – at just how deeply Trump supporters have bought into his lies:
Ye of little faith! The Wall is being built as we speak 🇺🇸MAGA🇺🇸

Tomi, I get your spiel, and I’m down with it, but realize .@realDonaldTrump is NOT a politician. Listen to what he says, that he is building the wall & has been since day one. He’s about getting things DONE, one way or the other. Support him, trust him. #MAGA2020 #Grit #Hooah! 🇺🇸

There is a plan up his sleeve. He did what he had to do. Year one he had his own a party against him. He has fought every day in the White House for us. He works harder than any other president against horrible, disgusting opposition.He will build a wall &defund PP

President Trump will get the money for the wall without Democtats help, it’s already in the works.#BuildTheWallCrimeWillFall

Considering the obstacles @POTUS has had to endure since day one I’ll support him a second term no matter what. And if you don’t see his strategy than sit down and learn something.

‘We’re in Trouble’: Steve Schmidt Issues Dire Warning About Changed GOP After January 6th Insurrection
Appearing on MSNBC’s the 11th Hour with host Brian Williams, former GOP campaign consultant Steve Schmidt warned that Democrats need to accept that the Republican Party has changed drastically after four years of Donald Trump and the Jan 6th riot — and failure to recognize that simple fact puts the entire country at risk.
Using one of Schmidt’s tweets where he called Trump’s “truth” a “hideous deception” as a jumping-off point, the former Republican warned, “We’re in trouble.”
“Objectively, since the insurrection on Jan 6th, the Republican Party is far more radical,” Schmidt began. “Far more committed to the lie that Trump has told, fully committed to the authoritarian movement.”
“Should the events repeat themselves, the Republican Party is in a much different place than it was this past election with regard to being prepared to subvert the legal and lawful results,” he continued.
“The Democrats have done nothing since coming into office,” he added. “They have done nothing to prevent any of the abuses we have seen, done nothing to harden any of the infrastructures”
He later added, “This is a serious moment.”
Republicans Just Filibustered a Critical Voting Rights Bill. Here’s Why Everyone Is Blaming Joe Manchin.
Minutes ago Senate Republicans filibustered critical voting rights legislation – actually, filibustered debate on voting rights legislation. They refused to even allow debate on protecting the most important, most critical element of a democracy: the right and the ability to vote.
“If there is anything worthy of the Senate’s attention, if there’s any issue that merits debate on this floor, it is protecting our democracy from the forces that are trying to unravel it from the inside out,” Senate Democratic Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said after Republicans blocked debate on the bill.
While Republicans absolutely should be and are being held accountable, many on social media are blaming Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) for the failure to pass the Freedom to Vote Act.
Back in May Sen. Manchin insisted he could get Republicans to come to the table, to act in good faith, to do the right thing when it counted.
He insisted the filibuster had to be protected at all costs, and he’s steadfastly refused to budge on eliminating it. Even as Republicans in state after state after state enact anti-democratic legislation designed to make it harder and harder for people, especially minorities, to vote.
In short, he failed.
Not a single Republican crossed the aisle – much less ten to get the necessary 60 votes – not even to allow debate on protecting voting rights.
And now many are blaming Manchin.
That’s it. The bill will not move forward at this time. No more handwringing about compromises or baloney talk from Joe Manchin of winning over 10 Republicans. NOW IT IS TIME TO REFORM THE FILIBUSTER!
— Walter Shaub (@waltshaub) October 20, 2021
Can someone please ask @Sen_JoeManchin what happened to 10 Republicans he promised would support Freedom to Vote Act & how he plans to pass his voting rights bill without changing filibuster rules?
— Ari Berman (@AriBerman) October 20, 2021
Joe Manchin on May 27, 2021 on why he refuses to reform the filibuster: “You have to have faith there’s 10 good people.”
There weren’t. Not even one. By Manchin’s own logic, there’s no longer any justification to retain the filibuster.pic.twitter.com/ty5mbCP40M
— Brian Tyler Cohen (@briantylercohen) October 20, 2021
For real, though, Manchin’s theory of change — that Rs could be coaxed to support reasonable, moderate compromise on critical issues — has been disproven.
He said he had “faith there’s 10 good people” in the GOP caucus to support these bills. There are not.
— Dan Lavoie (@djlavoie) October 20, 2021
Asked last month about his plan to get the Freedom to Vote Act passed, Joe Manchin replied, “It’s to get 10 Republicans.”
Today, the bill got zero Republicans. https://t.co/HBckbx2nIi
— Steve Benen (@stevebenen) October 20, 2021
I thought Joe Manchin was going to find 10 GOP votes for this bill??? https://t.co/cKixpLhITm
— Tim Fullerton (@TimFullerton) October 20, 2021
This was the bill that Joe Manchin insisted on writing himself because he assured us all he could get 10 Republicans to support it. Turns out this was just another stall tactic by Manchin to keep us in idle while the clock ticks down to Too Late.
— Mattie Gage — Please Wear A Mask–I voted for Joe (@BlueSkyDays17) October 20, 2021
Manchin helped write a voter protection law bill in place of the one we had. In doing so, he said he was confident he could get 10 republicans to vote for it. Well they vote on this voter protection act today and it’s being said not one Republican will vote for it. FAILED! pic.twitter.com/RYQJJprLpe
— katherine ✌🏻❤️🎸🌎🧚🌺🌼🌸 (@katherineOma) October 20, 2021
Bear in mind this is Joe Manchin’s baby, the bill he swore up and down would get 10 @GOP votes if only Democrats would stop trying to lead.
So much for that.
— Max Burns (@themaxburns) October 20, 2021
I think it’s time to turn Joe Manchin into a balloon animal because he would provide more joy in that way then being a senator because almost everything he does makes society worse. 10 republicans my ass. Throw in Kyrsten Sinema too

‘Pig’ Donald Trump Slammed After Attacking Colin Powell for Being Treated ‘So Beautifully’ in Death
Donald Trump Tuesday morning attacked former U.S. Secretary of State and Joint Chiefs Chairman Colin Powell, 24 hours after his death from COVID complications, and complained in typical Trump sarcasm how it was “wonderful” to see Powell being “treated in death so beautifully by the Fake News Media.”
The former president added that he hopes “that happens to me someday.”
He’s now being highly criticized for his remarks.
In a statement the former president called General Powell a “classic RINO,” who was always the “first to attack other Republicans.” Powell endorsed former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over Trump in the 2016 presidential race, and former Vice President Joe Biden in 2020.
Trump also accused Powell, who served under Presidents Reagan, Bush 41, Clinton, and Bush 43, of making “big mistakes on Iraq,” including his infamous statement before the United Nations about weapons of mass destruction, which Powell later acknowledged was wrong.
After attacking Powell, Trump concluded, “He made plenty of mistakes, but anyway, may he rest in peace!”
Many are expressing outrage:
Trump is being a pig again, re: Colin Powell

Of course when given the chance to do the human thing in response to the death of Colin Powell, Trump used it as another chance to show what a despicable malignancy he is. The most tragic part is how many are modeling this behavior.
— Steven Beschloss (@StevenBeschloss) October 19, 2021
— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) October 19, 2021
Imagine, just imagine, if a Democrat and especially Squad member had put out a statement like this mocking Powell’s death. Republicans & media would be up in arms. But it’s Trump, so we all just shrug and move on. He is graded on a totally different curve to the rest of the world https://t.co/Kns8zV3RuS
— Mehdi Hasan (@mehdirhasan) October 19, 2021
Trump’s statement about Colin Powell tells you everything you need to know about what sort of person he is.
Still amazing that 74 million people voted for him — AFTER watching four years of this behavior.
— S.V. Dáte (@svdate) October 19, 2021
Just absolutely beyond the pale.
Trump isn’t fit to carry General Powell’s jockstrap, yet this beneath contempt, subhuman shitstain is still the de facto leader of the Republican Party. pic.twitter.com/msfrQkLwCA
— Angry Staffer (@Angry_Staffer) October 19, 2021
Trump released a statement on the death of Colin Powell specifically to spit on his grave. That’s your choice for President of the United States?
