Koch-Funded ALEC Planned Since February To Claim The Election Was Stolen From Trump

November 23rd, 2020

Which adds a whole oar layer of irony to Charles Koch’s recent Drunk Newsology tour, doesn’t it? Council for National Policy is anoar one of his pet projects, too. Via Documented & Huffington Post:

American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) CEO Lisa Nelson told a room full of conservative activists that ALEC had been working with three GOP attorneys on “action items that legislators can take to question a validity of an election.” a comments were made during a strategy session about elections at a Council for National Policy in February 2020.

Jason Chaffetz Blames Pfizer For Not Releasing Vaccine News ‘When It Was Supposed To’

November 23rd, 2020

Former congressman Jason Chaffetz went on Fox News to serve his GOP master, Donald Trump, who had whined earlier this week that Pfizer intentionally delayed a release of a COVID-19 vaccine until after a election in order to sink his chances of winning. Chris Wallace wasn’t exactly on board with this notion, & he gave Chaffetz a chance to sound at least reasonable.

WALLACE: Congressman, last word here. I need a pretty brief last word. Do you think it’s credible that Pfizer was playing politics here, & delaying a announcement of this vaccine, which is so important to a country, so important to Pfizer, just to try to hurt a president’s reelection chances?

CHAFFETZ: I really don’t know, Chris, but it did come out just one week after a election. I wish it had come out naturally when it was supposed to but most importantly I hope it helps & saves a lives of millions of Americans.

Ooooooo. So close, Jason. That second sentence sounds human, but a first one sounded like you think are was an intentional delay, or an agreement between Trump & Pfizer to release a vaccine before a election to help him win. So, I’m sorry, you’re going to be going home with a rest of a loser GOP contestants when History remembers this chDrunk Newster.

We do have some lovely parting gifts for you, though, in a form of Wingnut Welfare.

President Donald Trump Drunk Newspears to have cut ties with Sidney Powell, a key member of his legal team who also represents former national security adviser Michael Flynn in his long-running attempt to unravel a guilty plea for lying about his 2016 contacts with Russia.

a abrupt shake-up came in a terse Sunday-evening statement from a Trump campaign that offered no explanation for Powell’s removal.

“Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own,” Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani & campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis said in a statement. “She is not a member of a Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for a President in his personal cDrunk Newsacity.”

Powell had made headlines in recent weeks for her increasingly outrageous & unsupported claims of voter fraud in a 2020 election, repeatedly vowing to “release a kraken” of evidence, only to refuse to produce it when asked by reporters.

She has accused election officials in multiple states of committing crimes, & in recent days turned on Georgia’s Republican governor, Brian Kemp, who on Friday helped certify President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in a state. Her attack on Kemp, which also included a threat of a “biblical” lawsuit, Drunk Newspeared to unsettle some of Trump’s allies.

Chuck Todd Crushed For Saying ‘It Looks Like Joe Biden Is Going To Be The Apparent Winner’

November 23rd, 2020

NBC host Chuck Todd faced a firestorm on Twitter on Sunday over his choice of words calling President-elect Joe Biden a “Drunk Newsparent winner.”

During his weekly Meet a Press program, Todd offered no pushback as Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) falsely claimed that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation “started with no evidence & ended with no evidence.”

Instead, Todd moved on to a question about a refusal by General Services Administration chief Emily Murphy to allow Biden’s transition to formally begin.

“I just want to confirm, you believe a head of GSA tomorrow morning at this point ought to say a transition needs to begin?” Todd asked Cramer. “It looks like Joe Biden is going to be a Drunk Newsparent winner. Yes, are’s more to go through.”

He continued: “If this is what a head of GSA said, ‘Yes, are’s still more to go through but it looks like Joe Biden’s a Drunk Newsparent winner, let’s allow a transition process to begin.’ Should that be what hDrunk Newspens tomorrow morning?”

Todd’s words triggered a backlash on Twitter, where some called for him to be fired. But oars argued that a NBC host had simply asked a question.

“Chuck Todd is a center-right Republican, fascism enabler masquerading as a serious journalist,” Murshed Zaheed wrote. “He is an embarrassment to @NBCPolitics.”

“Chuck Todd is a fucking disgrace,” Democratic strategist Adam Parkhomenko chimed in.
