Donald Trump ‘knows he’s losing’ & he tweeted a supporter yelling ‘White Power’

United States President Donald J. Trump arrives to the Rose Garden to sign an Executive Order

In addition to issuing some sweaty denials that he was briefed on Russia killing American soldiers in Afghanistan, Donald Trump spent the weekend doing some of his favorite activities: golfing and tweeting white supremacist sh-t. Trump tweeted and deleted a video from a protest in The Villages in Florida, a senior community which is apparently now a hotbed of protests and MAGA crap. Some anti-Trump protesters yelled at a MAGA douche, and the MAGA douche yelled “White power!” Because that’s the point of all of this. Trump isn’t dog-whistling. He’s saying and tweeting this sh-t outright. Because he’s a white supremacist.

Speaking of how pathetic he is, Politico has a new story about how “Donald Trump knows he’s losing.” Some highlights:

The president has privately come to that grim realization in recent days, multiple people close to him told POLITICO, amid a mountain of bad polling and warnings from some of his staunchest allies that he’s on course to be a one-term president. Trump has endured what aides describe as the worst stretch of his presidency, marred by widespread criticism over his response to the coronavirus pandemic and nationwide racial unrest. His rally in Oklahoma last weekend, his first since March, turned out to be an embarrassment when he failed to fill the arena.

What should have been an easy interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday horrified advisers when Trump offered a rambling, non-responsive answer to a simple question about his goals for a second term. In the same appearance, the normally self-assured president offered a tacit acknowledgment that he might lose when he said that Joe Biden is “gonna be your president because some people don’t love me, maybe.” In the hours after the interview aired, questions swirled within his inner circle about whether his heart was truly in it when it comes to seeking reelection.

Trump has time to rebound, and the political environment could improve for him. But interviews with more than a half-dozen people close to the president depicted a reelection effort badly in need of direction — and an unfocused candidate who repeatedly undermines himself.

“Under the current trajectory, President Trump is on the precipice of one of the worst electoral defeats in modern presidential elections and the worst historically for an incumbent president,” said former Trump political adviser Sam Nunberg, who remains a supporter. Nunberg pointed to national polls released by CNBC and New York Times/Siena over the past week showing Trump receiving below 40 percent against Biden.

If Trump’s numbers erode to 35 percentage points over the next two weeks, Nunberg added, “He’s going to be facing realistically a 400-plus electoral vote loss and the president would need to strongly reconsider whether he wants to continue to run as the Republican presidential nominee.”

Politico goes on to say that Trump wants Jared Kushner to take over more of the daily operations of the campaign, which… I mean, lol. Jared is already in charge of the coronavirus, the Middle East, all White House operations and staffing, and now he’s in charge of the campaign? That might be the biggest signal of Trump’s self-destructive tendencies – he truly doesn’t care about winning, he’s handing everything to Jared.

There’s always a lot of breast-beating in discussions about how badly Trump is polling and how much his administration sucks and all of that. Like, I get it, we’re supposed to stay agitated and active and we can’t get complacent at all. But I personally love these stories for the pleasant, momentary hit of joy. There’s too little joy in the world. Just give yourself one or two minutes of pleasure every day and think about how much Trump sucks and how HE KNOWS he sucks.

    I think he is doing these things to self-destruct. Basically, if he is going to lose he is going to do it Bigly.

  2. Paperclip says:

    STILL…make sure to VOTE! Lots of people thought HC was a shoo-in and either didn’t vote or logged a “protest” vote for someone else. We can’t let that happen again.

  3. Leah says:

    If he loses the Florida retiree/village vote in Nov he knows he’s done.

    • Andrea says:

      At this rate, his voter base in Florida may be hospitalized or sadly deceased at the rate the numbers have jumped recently.

  4. FC says:

    Am I the only one worried that the Russians are going to hack this election worse than 2016? There are zero policies in place to stop that from happening.

    • Truthiness says:

      Right?! Putin has not had his say yet and Trump is still in control of a huge campaign treasure chest. Putin controls how ever much he wants to with this administration. I won’t believe in being comfortable. Besides all the polls got it wrong in 2016. I see no reason to think that this time, they are really right.

  5. Rapunzel says:

    With apologies to Gwen Stefani in advance, he’s President Hollaback Girl. Cause this shit is bananas. B-a-n-a-n-a-s.

    He claims he didn’t hear it. But it was in the video at the start, very clear. And it was up for hours before he deleted.

    So… if he’s telling the truth (big if) he clearly retweets videos he doesn’t actually watch. Or he’s so used to hearing/thinking “white power” he doesn’t notice it. And his staff doesn’t check his twitter feed properly, or is too scared or dumb to call him out.

    If he’s lying (most probable), this was a dog whistle to his Neo-Nazi base. Or intentional distraction from the myriad of screwups he’s involved in right now

    None of it is s good look. I am continually astounded this man has followers.

  6. DeniseMich says:

    He makes no sense. The old white man educated to high school is his audience. If he was serious about winning he would tell his high risk covid group to wear masks and beg their children to take them out of nursing homes.

    I want to live so I pray the Republicans allow him to be their candidate and everyone gets up and votes him and his Republican cronies out of office. I hate him, his VP and Mitch. They can all go to hell.

  7. adastraperaspera says:

    He’s racist, and always has been. But his handlers have him blast out this racist stuff to distract from the administrations failures and ongoing criming. He’s just capturing headlines so no one will talk about the Russian bounties and coronavirus. As for if he’ll resign, I’m sure he would if he can engineer pardons. He’s tired of pretending to be president. I still believe he’s just the help and not in charge of anything at all, so I guess it all depends on what McConnell and big money people like the Mercers are working out behind the scenes.

    • Kebbie says:

      Yep. This is all just to distract from the Russian bounty story. He gets to fire up his racist supporters and derail the conversation. Win-win for him.

  8. Gina says:

    It’s still so early. I’m cautiously optimistic BUT it’s too early. I keep remembering that the access Hollywood tape came out a month before the election.

    Also just read the Obama piece in the New York Times interesting take on his growing involvement with the Biden campaign.

  9. local russian hill says:

    please do not listen to the polls.
    get out and vote.
    the polls including the new york times poll in 2016 said hillary clinton was set to win.
    don’t be apathetic.
    it’s what trump and republicans are counting on.
    vote as if your life depends on it.
    because it does.
    to all of the people who didn’t vote and said ‘it doesn’t matter who’s president’, you’re responsible for where we are now as a country and how we’ve been instructed to deal with the pandemic from the top down.
    is biden perfect? no.
    but vote for biden in november.
    as voltaire is credited as saying,
    please ‘don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good’.

    • Cate says:

      This 100%.. it’s nice to have the poll information in the background, but do not trust them. That is why we are in this position. Vote!

  10. MaryContrary says:

    Yes, the only pleasure I take is the hope that he’s miserable all.the.fricking.time.

  11. bluemoonhorse says:

    Trump never thought he’d win the first term but racist white America put him in office. I personally want him in jail and I hope the day he steps out of the White House, the NY DA issues her arrest warrant to that effect.

    • lucy2 says:

      Same. And I don’t want any of this “pardoning to help the country heal BS”, I want him and all his associates to be held accountable for their many, many, MANY crimes.


    • Lizzie says:

      I would be happy if Deutsche bank came after him for payment of loans and he lost all of his money.

    • Juls says:

      CNN reports that Iran has issued a warrant on Dump.

    • E.B. Mann says:

      If she can get that warrant out before Humpty Trumpty relocates to Moscow, you mean.

  12. Lively says:

    Trump is the face that Should be representing America right now. He is the face you deserve, when a country as a whole puts their heads in the sand and ignore past and present, crimes against humanity. The public allowed greed and fear to take over their country, Trump fat orange face, limited vocabulary and ignorance is America as whole, because that’s the majority of America.

    • Becks1 says:

      Ummm……Hillary won the popular vote.

      • lucy2 says:

        By almost 3 million votes, even with voter suppression. I hate the f’ing electoral college so much.

      • SomeChick says:

        @lucy2 – exactly. They had ONE JOB. And they let the entire country down. It should be abolished.

        - Frustrated Hillary Voter

      • lucy2 says:

        Absolutely should be abolished. i live in NJ. My vote is worth a fraction of someone in Montana or Wyoming.
        If they can’t abolish it, they need a real restructuring of the votes so that they are correctly weighted to population.

  13. Annaloo. says:

    I’m convinced that he wants to lose. He has created a mess – the biggest in recent years- with his horrible response to a global pandemic and his long game stoking of racial and cultural differences. He’s going to leave the biggest mess he can, so he can retreat to his sycophants, start Trump Media, and go back to criticising and stoking conflict for attention. The world, all of humanity needs for his influence to stop!

    • E.B. Mann says:

      I mean, running away after fucking things up beyond repair is kinda his jam (ruined companies, ruined marriages, etc.). Hail to the Thief!

  14. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Trust me, these last few months have given me brief moments of satisfaction sighs. Everything I’ve been saying and feeling for four years has spread. The general tone has shifted and while it’s been a long time coming, nothing could ever take away the feelings I had waking up November 9, 2016. The avalanche of emotions were tangible so I’m a much more reserved voter, and I can’t take anything for granted. This motherf*cker cheats and lies and is a vacuous bin of corruption. Anything goes.

  15. Becks1 says:

    I agree that we need to continue working and cant take a Dem victory for granted in November, but RIGHT NOW, knowing how miserable and out of control he feels….it feels pretty good, cant lie.

  16. ClaireB says:

    How has nobody mentioned that The Villages are also a hotbed of STDs because of all the golf retirees swinging with each other? That’s the only good part of The Villages.

    I am terrified that Russia has control of our voting machines and will give us another 4 years of Sundowning Donny and his pillaging cronies.

  17. MsIam says:

    Like others have said I hope dems are fired up in November. When you look at the blatant attempt at voter suppression in Kentucky and the purging of voter rolls, you cannot take even one vote for granted. As for Trump, he is said to be at his most vicious and dangerous when he feels humiliated. He is still the president and he has a lot of power, don’t take your eyes off of him or think he is a joke.

  18. Eleonor says:

    I think the Jared Kushner in charge of his campaing is a clear sign he is paranoid: he can’t trust anyone in the Rep because he fears they will quit him, so he turn to a family member.

    • Lizzie says:

      If his poll numbers keep dropping who else would be nominated at the republican convention? Pence?

  19. Jan says:

    He’ll probably say he did such a great job he only needed four years. I’m also wondering/worrying what he’ll do in the lame duck session if he does lose.

  20. Kelly Sunshine says:

    Is it possible that Trump could decide not to run for re-election at this point? He seems like the type that would drop out of the race when he knew that he couldn’t possibly win the election, then when the Republicans lose the election, he’d go off about how he would’ve won if he had still been in the race.

  21. February-Pisces says:

    He has a ‘napoleon complex’ where he needs money and power to over compensate for the fact he has a tiny mushroom penis.

  22. outoftheshadows says:

    Dear friends on Celebitchy, can those of you with social media start a twitter hashtag #lameduckpresident? I just want to pile some coals on that dumpster fire, but for safety reasons, I have no social media presence…
