As Democrats step up their attacks on former President Donald Trump, Trump is not taking it lying down. While he is waiting for the latest actions from New York in the form of an indictment that he states he will address and defeat, he is also keeping up with his campaign and his MAGA posts defining the United States condition and the fact that a strong leader is needed in our country at this time more than any other.
Trump is keeping up the posts on his own and other social media regarding the current issues and state of the country as well as world events, and last week made numerous posts about both the continuing persecution he receives from New York, the state of the U.S. as the world watches, and the events in the world.
Trump issued a scathing statement on Joe Biden’s leadership in a post, arguing that the 80-year-old president does nothing “except eat, sleep, and sh*t!”
“China, Russia, Iran, North Korea and other Nations of a less than friendly nature, are busy ‘CARVING UP THE WORLD’ as our once great United States of America sits back and watches,” Trump wrote. “We are a Failing Nation, with Open Borders, Fake Elections, and a horrible Inflation Riddled Economy. We no longer set the standard, the standard sets us. Our so-called ‘Leader’ does NOTHING except Eat, Sleep, and S..t! Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio?”
Trump’s reference to Joe DiMaggio, a hero in the world of baseball, comes from a song by Simon and Garfunkel, Mrs. Robinson,. The 1968 song expresses dismay at the political state of the country, saying “Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio? Our nation turns its lonely eyes to you…Wooo, woo, woo… What’s that you say, Mrs. Robinson, Joltin’ Joe has left and gone away…hey…hey…hey…”
Trump is pulling no punches as he waits for the indictment that the New York DA says will be forthcoming after years of struggle to make it happen.
News broke last week that New York District Attorney Alvin Bragg says he is finally close to indicting Trump over hush money payments made to adult film star Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 campaign, allegedly to keep her quiet about an affair the two of them had in 2006. trump states that he has done nothing wrong and that the whole farce is a witch hunt like many others waged against him.
A lawyer for Trump says he will not resist arrest and will cooperate. “There won’t be a standoff at Mar-a-Lago with Secret Service and the Manhattan DA’s office,” Joe Tacopina said. He suggested that Trump, whom he characterized as a survivor, would utilize any charges brought against him to his political advantage in the long run, Conservative Brief noted.
“Most people would collapse under the weight of this,” he said. “He seems to turn everything into a positive and everything into a boost for his campaign, so I’m sure this will just join that long list of things that people think no one could overcome, but he will.”
Gov. Ron DeSantis of Trump’s home state and possible presidential hopeful himself seems to agree, making a blatant statement about the Soros-funded attacks against Trump and the fact that the DA in Manhattan should have more things to worry about in his own backyard than Trump handling his own legal matters.
“I do know this, the Manhattan District Attorney is a Soros-funded prosecutor. And so he, like other Soros-funded prosecutors, they weaponize their office to impose a political agenda on society at the expense of the rule of law and public safety,” DeSantis said at a press conference.
“He has downgraded over 50% of the felonies to misdemeanors,” DeSantis continued. “He says he doesn’t want to even have jail time for the vast, vast majority of crimes. And what we’ve seen in Manhattan is we’ve seen the crime rate go up and we’ve seen citizens become less safe.”
“And so you’re talking about this situation with, and look, I don’t know what goes into paying hush money to a porn star to secure silence over some type of alleged affair,” he added. “I just, I can’t speak to that, but what I can speak to is that if you have a prosecutor who is ignoring crimes happening every single day in his jurisdiction, and he chooses to go back many, many years ago to try to use something about porn star ‘hush money’ payments, you know, that’s an example of pursuing a political agenda and weaponizing the office.’
“We won’t be involved in this,” he added. “I have no interest in getting involved in some type of manufactured circus by some Soros DA… He’s trying to do a political spectacle. He’s trying to virtue signal for his base. I’ve got real issues I got to deal with here in FL.”
