As Biden Goes On Offense, Trump Goes Unhinged

by | Aug 30, 2022 | Politics

President Joe Biden has sharpened his rhetoric against Republicans lately, likening them to fascists and saying they don’t believe in democracy. Former president Donald Trump, meanwhile, shared a photoshopped image of Biden pooping his pants.The contrast between the current and former president has never been starker, as Biden signs landmark bills into law, and Trump readies a possible 2024 campaign while squirming under various federal investigations into his potentially illegal conduct before and after leaving the White House. AdvertisementTrump unraveled Tuesday on Truth Social, his social media platform where, unlike Twitter or Facebook, he can share gross and inflammatory content unchecked. The former president spent the morning amplifying bizarre memes of Biden, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi.It followed a similar meltdown Trump had on Monday, when he demanded a do-over election that would presumably reinstate him as president nearly two years after he lost to Biden by 7 million votes.On Tuesday, Trump shared “ReTruths” of other users’ gripes about how the 2020 election had supposedly been stolen from him, along with some QAnon conspiracy theory material — and also much weirder stuff, like a doctored photo of Biden in an amorous embrace with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

The FBI turned up the heat on a long simmering investigation of Trump when it searched his Florida residence last month, recovering a cache of White House material. The federal probe hasn’t yet led to an indictment. Trump’s lawyers have argued he cooperated with authorities, and that anything he took was covered by executive privilege. Trump and his allies in Congress have railed against the FBI as “corrupt” and “illegitimate.” Their rhetoric has been accompanied by violence and threats from Trump supporters, including a man who tried to breach an FBI building in Cleveland and wound up getting killed by police. Republican lawmakers have begun saying violence is inevitable if Trump is held accountable.“If there’s a prosecution of Donald Trump for mishandling classified information, after the [Hillary] Clinton debacle … there’ll be riots in the streets,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Sunday.AdvertisementTrump kept up the attacks on federal law …
