Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, April 07, 2020

Near the end of President Donald Trump's Monday press briefing on the coronavirus pandemic, the president said that Democrats "shouldn't be allowed to win" the election after everything he has done with regard to the pandemic " and said that the virus has "artificially stopped" them.

... the president said that Democrats "shouldn't be allowed to win" the election after everything he has done with regard to the pandemic ...

Really?

Pres Trump said that???!?!

Trump rebukes ABC's Jonathan Karl, says Democrats 'shouldn't be allowed' to win in November
www.washingtontimes.com

...The president also said Democrats view his handling of the crisis as a campaign issue, and he vowed not to let it bring down his presidency.

"They want to make Trump look as bad as they can, because they want to try and win an election that they shouldn't be allowed to win, based on the fact we have done a great job," Mr. Trump said. "We had the greatest economy in the world, and I'll do it a second time. We got artificially stopped by a virus that nobody ever thought possible. And we've handled it and we've built a team, and we've built an apparatus that's been unbelievable."...


Aside from the egregious narcissism of Pres Trump viewing the current pandemic that is killing Americans as a re-election problem, I have an issue with his comment.

It is not up to the President of the United States to determine who should and should not be allowed to win any election.

Such a comment is something that I would expect a dictator to say, not the President of the United States.

It is the Constitution that specifies who should and should not be allowed to win a Presidential election.

Once again, Pres Trump shows that he thinks he is above the law, that loyalty should be to him and not to the Constitution.


The really frightening aspect of the above is that Pres trump has filled the White House with people who are afraid to remind him of the Constitution, and are so willing to regularly check him for polyps.

It's only a matter of time before Trump says:

"My government will not allow the Democrats to win the election".

The President of the United States is no more than two steps from drooling and gibbering. The more he's on television the harder it is to conceal that.

If this keeps up (what's to stop it?), the long-predicted coup attempt is coming. It may not be successful, being led by the Mad Hatter, but it will be messy.

When we suspect he is a crooked politician it only requires that we listen to him for 15 minutes for us to get proof of it.

"it only requires that we listen to him for 15 minutes"

Five minutes of listening to the garbage that oozes from his chocolate pie hole is sheer torture.

Impeached and disgraced President should immediately resign for the good of the nation.

Our President should forfeit his office for saying that.

Well, it's no different than what Dems said when Trump was running. Funny how Libs NOW make it a problem.

Sounds like you're creating a narrative out of thin air to fit your POV.

You're a lying POS as usual.

Says the Dictator 'n Chief...
Anyone that still defends this
piece of crap is just as big
of a ---- as he is...

This just in,
Trump fires the Inspector General
in charge of monitoring where that
$2 Trillion dollar Stimulus Package
goes...

wonder how much will end up in
Trump's reelection campaign war chest,
or in his business holdings...

The man is a craven fraud and cheat...

Sorry...it was 4.5 Trillion dollars
in total...

Let me see....1 Trillion to Trump's
reelection campaign...

1 Trillion to Trump's personal
holdings...

1 Trillion for Fortune 500 bailouts...

and 1 Trillion divided amongst all
the rest...

Wow, you're usually full of crap but this is an ouright lie. When did Dems say "[Republicans] want to try and win an election that they shouldn't be allowed to win."? Or were you so stupid you conflated Trump and Republicans?

Yep, sounds like a dictator to me.
Yet his brain dead cult applauds his every failure.

I don't think Trump understands how frightening what he just said is.

I think he is admitting he plans to cancel the election .

You need to look up the words "Anti-American hypocrite", and then stare into a mirror to see one.

Even though there is no constitutional means for him to destroy the election he has got people working on ideas for doing whatever it takes to stay in power.
