Lose the nasty words, Mr. President —

President Trump continues to be his own worst enemy: On Thursday, he stooped to calling presumptive vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris a “mad woman.” That doesn’t promote his agenda. It doesn’t help him with women. It doesn’t shore up his image as worthy of the nation’s highest office. It’s just, as Trump would say, mean and nasty. Sure, Harris isn’t the first target of Trump’s ad hominem attacks or over-the-top language. But making everything personal is unbecoming. It turns off voters who like his policies but dislike his rhetoric.

I sure get tired of others complaining on what Trump says. People have tried to destroy him, lie about him and even tried to take him out. And this guy has a ruffled feather over Trump saying Mad Women?

Where is the criticism of all those who have called the president some of the most vile names in our vocabulary? Where is the criticism of those who pretend to chop off his head, wish him ill, say terrible things about his son and wife?

That "Nasty Mad Woman" just said that Trump is responsible for the millions of job losses and a hundred thousand deaths. Pelosi just said he doesn't give a damn about people and children starving. But you think he is the one guilty of ad hominem attacks?

I saw this coming. Do not say anything about her. You will be accused of attacking her because she is a female or a person of color. Just remark that you wish to discuss Joes politics as Joe is the one running for President. Say you trust Mike to debate her when necessary.

So NY Post think they know how all women feel ??? All women are not alike, they all don't defend women because they are women. What does NY Post think about Harris trashing Trump & Kavanaugh?

If all the other Trump voters besides myself react in similar fashion to these “nasty words” as I have; then he has nothing to worry about. I would bet the NYP writer isn’t pro-Trump anyway.

Mr. President, let us woman go after Kamala for sleeping around to get to the top. You should ONLY go after her policies. Take the high road. I'm not running for any office, I can say anything I want about her and her sleezy selling herself to get a promotion and fame. Ask Willie Brown, I'm sure he and his wife can tell us a few things.

I heard him say that and I thought - yeah that does describe her - she seems very mad, and has a nasty temperament. Not sure if bitter fits, but it is also in that ballpark. I am gender-blind - the description sounded of truth to me, and I want women Marxist politicians treated just like men - power mad narcissists that would have no qualms about ordering murder of me and my family if it stood in the way of their ambitions to get to the Throne of power. All that Arkancide. Obamagate. IRS weaponization. NSA & FBI & DOJ & Stete Dept weaponization. $150 Billion to Iran w/o 'House - where $ appropriations start'. Federal Court that REFUSES to drop case against honest man Flynn. No anyone seeking to 'Rule the Country' needs to be put through the Sarah Palin/PDJT and Kavanaugh/Bork/Thomas level Colonoscopy. What goes around comes around. All you sexist sensible women can vote for nasty old little girl hair sniffin', swimming nude at the Veep pool in 'front' of female secret service agents. You can vote for Kamala Indian/Haitian non-Black American Kalifornia AG that covered up sexual harassment in her elected office. Like the NYC voters - you're going to get it good & hard - votes do count.

I much prefer Trumps words over your snide pettiness and Trump is right : Harris is a spittle-flecking seething virulent crazy woman who I hope goes down in flames. If the female dog cannot take the heat then she should go find another john to be a mattress for.

The left has been calling the right racist, homophobic, xenophobic and misogynists for years and all republican candidates Hitler. Joe Bidon, Alec Baldwin and Robert De Niro want to beat up President Trump and Kathy Griffin wants to cut off his head. Broadway Actress Carol Cook and George Lopez wants Trump assassinated and SNL writer John Mulaney thinks the senate should stab Trump like Caesar. Where was the NYPost then??? The left doesn't like it when President Trump fights back and "we have his back."

New York Post? The publication with a stick (post) up its neither end. Trump could be smoother in his repartee. He could have said, "Self-serving political whore," about Harris. He could have said, of Pelosi, "she is a senile money-grubbing political hack with dreams of finessing her way into the Whitehouse by way of her speakerphone and endless, baseless impeachment attempts." There i think that is smoother than "Mad Woman" or "Crazy Pelosi". Maybe I should be a speech writer? If you want loquacious invective, considering what I've observed of these Democrat subversive, over the years, I'm the man for it!

Words from the Republican establishment. Calm down. Be nice. Be respectful. Ignore attacks. Be a W. Bush. LOSE! Trump has WON by truthfully confronting the Left and it's people parts. Kamala is a "mad woman". Look at her behavior in blatantly sleeping her way to the top. Look at her atrocious behavior toward Kavanaugh. Look at her inconsistent positions driven by a pursuit of raw power. When the Left yells and screams and the Republicans are passive, the impression rises that the Left has a valid point and the Republicans have no real answer to their charges. Turning a blind eye to what the Left does was NOT working. Trump isn't just yelling randomly. He is forcefully addressing the dems lies and corruption. We didn't land at Normandy to "chat" with Hitler's forces. We arrived to forcefully confront them and overcome them. The Left is an 5th column force force and it needs a forceful and sufficient response. Ignoring them or trying to talk them out of their behavior is a LOSING strategy. The voters respond to emotional appeals. When the Left is the only side that is upset and forceful, WE LOSE.

"Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace is in disbelief over the Biden campaign's decision not to have any top officials appear on the Sunday talk shows the weekend before the Democratic National Convention. The veteran journalist called it "the damnedest thing [he's] ever seen" in a Friday interview with Guy Benson on Fox News Radio. "So I've been doing Sunday shows with conventions. I started on Meet the Press in 1988. I've been doing it on and off. For what? What is that? Thirty-two years," Wallace said.
Chicago Spent $66 Million on Hospital

Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot's (D.) decision to renovate a local convention center into a makeshift coronavirus hospital cost taxpayers nearly $66 million—though only 38 patients received treatment at the facility, the Chicago Sun-Times reported on Friday. The Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority, the agency Lightfoot tasked with overseeing the project, overlooked a bid from a construction company that offered to waive fees or donate them to coronavirus pandemic relief organizations. Instead, officials gave the bid to Walsh Construction, a politically connected contractor, which billed the city $65.9 million to renovate the McCormick Place convention center.

Federal charging documents against Kevin Clinesmith, the top FBI attorney who was expected to plead guilty today to altering documents, show that the FBI withheld in three separate spying applications the fact that Page had served as an “operational contact” who helped an agency believed to be the CIA investigate suspected Russian intelligence figures for five years.

California’s high-capacity magazine limitations for guns “infringes on [the] fundamental right to self defense” and is therefore unconstitutional, according to a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. District Court of Appeals. Yes, the court previously known as the “9th Circus” for being the most Leftist, most overturned, and most wrong court in the land, ruled in favor of the rights of gun owners on Friday afternoon. California deemed that the use or sale of magazines with a higher capacity than ten bullets (LCMs) are illegal. Voters passed the measure. The three-judge panel in the 9th Circuit Court ruled that the limitation is unconstitutional.

Kamala Harris is devoted to the political advancement of Kamala Harris. (Just ask Willie Brown.) Beyond that, she has no apparent principles, although she is happy to adopt extreme leftism as the guise of the moment. During the primary season, she attacked Joe Biden quite effectively, claiming to believe the women who accused him of sexual harassment, and so on. But, like the rest of Harris’s life, it was all a pose. That is how she explained it to Stephen Colbert, who naively assumed that Harris might have meant at least some of what she said about Biden:(Snip for tweet)It was a debate! She was just trying to become president!

In time-honored mainstream media fashion, the Associated Press does its best to downplay President Trump’s brokering a mutual recognition pact between Israel and the United Arab Emirates by calling it a “rare diplomatic win.” (Hello, AP, have you missed that Trump is the first president in decades to negotiate successfully with Communist China, by far our most significant adversary?) Nevertheless, this “win,” such as it is, could be of considerable importance not only to Israel but to the international community, the part of it, anyway, that is in favor of world peace.

Joe Biden has been in the public eye for close to 50 years. His record over that time is dismal, but for some reason he has usually gotten a pass. “Good old Joe” has broken every rule in the book without suffering serious consequences. To be sure, his prior presidential runs crashed and burned when a few aspects of his gross dishonesty came to light, but his dishonorable career continued nevertheless. Biden has feathered his nest for decades, in part by selling his influence to foreign powers, as in the case of Ukraine’s Burisma, not to mention his more worrisome Chinese connections. This would seem to be a serious offense,

Thursday’s announcement of a “historic peace agreement” between Israel and the United Arab Emirates — the first deal to normalize relations between Israel and an Arab nation brokered by the U.S. in over a quarter-century — is more evidence that President Trump is the first president in a long time to get U.S. Middle East policy more right than wrong. Under the agreement, Israel and the UAE will establish “full normalization of relations,” including diplomatic relations with the opening of embassies, trade, tourism, direct flights and other agreements. The only two other Arab nations that have diplomatic relations with Israel are Egypt and Jordan.

Yet there is at present little evidence that "severe side effects" are common in COVID-19 patients who take hydroxychloroquine, with the majority of reported adverse events being relatively mild and only a small fraction of reported effects so far being dangerous and/or fatal.

The 90-year-old Hungarian-American and billionaire philanthropist told La Repubblica that Trump is a “confidence trickster” who unexpectedly won the 2016 U.S. election and was inadvertently working to “undermine democracy from within,” per a translation of the interview on George Soros’ website.

It is no secret but public knowledge that Kamala Harris slept her way up into California political life by being a very public escort and mattress for California Democrat Kingmaker Willie Brown. Willie Brown is 30 years older than Harris and was very married at the time. It was public. It was an embarrassment. With Joe Biden’s photo metaphorically the definition of the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, voters will decide in November whether they want Harris to be their president some time in the next four years. Of almost equally significant concern is what Harris represents to hard-working women across the country who devote years to their careers
