Let’s Talk About Beto – He’s Sure Talking About You…Racists

Yo’ve seen it all before: Someone runs for President and starts to teach America about itself.

Beto O’Rourke wants all of you to know about all of you; and a lot of you, as it turns out, are racist.

At Saturday night’s Third Annual Clinton Dinner in Little Rock, Arkansas, Beto said…

Well, actually, let’s look at some other things he’s said up ’til now.

From “Beto O’Rourke Assigns Blame For The El Paso Shooting“:

From “Communist Revolutionary: Privileged Millionaire Beto Vows To Destroy America’s Wealth & Privilege“:

Beto — who inherited millions and married into half a billion — promised to get rid of…himself.

From “Beto Tweets Condemnation To A President Who Doesn’t Exist & Continues His Vapid Contribution To The Politics Of Nothingness“:

Recently, he let you know what’s good enough for ya:

“There have even been some who suggested that I stay in Texas and run for Senate. But that would not be good enough for this community. That would not be good enough for El Paso. That would not be good enough for this country.”

So only he is good enough for you.

And what’s good enough for you is for you to be told you’re racist.

So let me get this straight… Let’s assume for a moment that Beto’s referring to racism against non-whites by white people.

If true, that means here’s his plan to snag the Oval Office:

Tell the minority of people they’re being unjustly attacked by A-holes. Tell the majority they’re the A-holes.

Does that sound like a good approach to getting a winning number of votes?

Maybe it is.

I guess we’ll find out.

It seems to be working for him — so far, he might have at least 3%.

Good goin’.

Jeffrey Epstein Had a Painting of Bill Clinton In a Blue Dress For Some Reason

Westlake Legal Group 34_politics002-drew-angerer-edited-580.v1-620x414 Jeffrey Epstein Had a Painting of Bill Clinton In a Blue Dress For Some Reason weird sex trafficking report Politics Pedophile Island painting Jeffrey Epstein investigation Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story democrats Blue Dress Bill Clinton

A new report, including pictures, came out today exposing that Jeffrey Epstein had a painting of Bill Clinton on the wall of his New York mansion. That would be weird enough, but the painting also included the odd detail of the former President posing while wearing a blue dress. I guess this was a humorous throwback to the Monica Lewinsky saga?

Jeffrey Epstein had a bizarre portrait which appeared to be of Bill Clinton in a dress hanging in his Manhattan mansion, DailyMailTV can reveal.

The picture depicting the former president apparently lounging on a chair in the Oval Office, wearing red heels and posing suggestively in a blue dress redolent of Monica Lewinsky was in a room off the stairway of the Upper East Side townhouse.

The painting was secretly snapped inside the pedophile’s lavish $56 million home in October 2012, four years after Epstein completed his sweetheart deal for prostitution of a minor and seven years before he was accused of running a sex trafficking ring of underage girls.

Well, alrighty then. We can probably just close up shop on the internet for the day because this can’t be topped in its absurdity.

Bill Clinton had numerous connections to Epstein, including taking 27 flights on his “Lolita Express” private jet and being pegged as present on Epstein’s island, famous for its sex trafficking. The Daily Beast also exposed a rash of private meetings, including events at the White House during the 90s.

What all that adds up to is currently unknown but suspicions have been rightly raised. The news of this painting just adds another layer to their relationship. You’d think they were pretty close if Epstein had this joke painting hanging on his wall. We’ll have to see where the evidence actually takes us though.

In the meantime, if I never see Bill Clinton in a dress again, it’ll be too soon.

Too dark to check: Did Epstein have a painting of … Bill Clinton in a blue dress and high heels?

Westlake Legal Group bc Too dark to check: Did Epstein have a painting of … Bill Clinton in a blue dress and high heels? The Blog portrait painting Monica Lewinsky heels epstein dress blue Bill Clinton

The photo obtained by the Daily Mail is blurry, but that does appear to be Slick Willie in a fetching knee-length blue gown with a plunging neckline and bold red heels.

Either that or it’s Bea Arthur. Which would be even sicker.

And so, once again, we must re-order the list of Epstein’s darkest perversions:

1. Serial pedophilia and sex trafficking
2. Painting of Bill Clinton in a dress
3. Plans to “seed” the world with his DNA

Maybe this is why Epstein killed himself. It didn’t bother him to be known as one of the planet’s most voracious child-abusing perverts. But once everyone knew that he had an oil on canvas of the Clenis in a skirt, well, some things simply can’t be explained away.

The picture depicting the former president apparently lounging on a chair in the Oval Office, wearing red heels and posing suggestively in a blue dress redolent of Monica Lewinsky was in a room off the stairway of the Upper East Side townhouse…

The color of the dress seemed to be a pointed reference to Clinton’s former intern Monica Lewinsky, who a blue dress during their infamous sexual encounter in the White House…

The origin of the painting is unknown. DailyMail.com has seen metadata which verifies where and when the picture was taken, which showed it hanging against a dark-colored wall in Epstein’s stone fortress…

The shoulder of the blue dress hangs off to the side as ‘Clinton’ seems to raise a ‘come hither’ finger towards the viewer.

The pattern of stonework above and around the doorway in the photo resembles the paint pattern on the outside of Epstein’s infamous temple. Maybe that’s a coincidence, maybe Epstein really liked that scheme. Either way, my new theory of the secret of the temple is that it’s actually a private art studio where Epstein blackmailed all living presidents into sitting for him while he painted them as cross-dressers.

Which means a portrait of Trump in a ball gown will probably be entering the national consciousness any day now.

My sort of mundane explanation for the painting is that Epstein likely had a weird sense of humor — how could he not have? — plus the dough to commission art as a goof if he liked, and may have thought that a “Bill in a blue dress” painting would be an amusing way to shock visitors. Maybe it was even intended as a gag gift for someone.

Or maybe, as righties are half-jokingly suggesting on Twitter this afternoon, it’s not a painting at all. Maybe it’s a photo.

No wonder Bill had him killed.

I kid, but don’t laugh too hard. The Daily Mail’s source goes on to note that on her way out of Epstein’s mansion she noticed a young Hispanic girl in the waiting area “who was really young – she looked about 14.” Could be she was there because, as the source assumed at the time, she was the housekeeper’s daughter. Could be she was there for another reason. This would have been October 2012, long after Epstein had received his sweetheart deal from Alex Acosta’s office and done his time for sex offenses. The man was operating in plain sight.

Update: Yep, that’s Bill all right. Looks like Epstein *didn’t* paint it himself.

As streiff wrote earlier today, the mainstream media and Democrats are foaming-at-the-mouth angry over President Trump’s Saturday retweet of a “conspiracy theory” actor and comedian Terrence K. Williams tweeted out about the reported early Saturday morning suicide of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

Williams’s tweet suggested the Clintons were involved in a cover-up and may have had something to do with Epstein’s death. To recap, here’s the tweet:

Social Media Sexual Assault republicans Politics North Carolina New York Media Jeffrey Epstein Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump doj democrats Culture crime Bill Clinton Allow Media Exception

Trump was asked about the retweet on Tuesday by a gaggle of frantic reporters in New Jersey and here is how he responded:

“He is a very highly respected conservative pundit,” Trump said Tuesday of Terrence K. Williams, the man whose tweet the president shared.

“He’s a big Trump fan. And that was a retweet. That wasn’t from me. That was from him. But he’s a man with half a million followers, a lot of followers,” Trump continued, speaking to reporters as he traveled from his summer getaway in Bedminster, New Jersey, to Pennsylvania.

“Basically what we’re saying is, we want an investigation. I want a full investigation,” Trump added.

In addition to demanding a full investigation, Trump also talked more at length about Clinton’s friendship with Epstein:

QUESTION: Do you really think the Clintons are involved in Jeffrey Epstein’s death?

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: I have no idea. I know he was on his plane 27 times and he said he was on the plane 4 times. But when they checked the plane logs, Bill Clinton who was a very good friend of Epstein, he was on the plane about 27 or 28 times. So why did he say four times?

And then the question you have to ask is did Bill Clinton go to the island? Because Epstein had an island that was not a good place, as I understand it. And I was never there, but you have to ask, did Bill Clinton go to the island. That’s the question. If you find that out, you’re going to know a lot. Thank you very much, everybody. Thank you.

Watch video of Trump’s back and forth with the media below:

Though Trump’s numbers were imprecise, it’s not as though what he said about the discrepancy in the number of flights Clinton’s office says he took on Epstein’s plane is a lie, as Fox News reported in 2016:

Former President Bill Clinton was a much more frequent flyer on a registered sex offender’s infamous jet than previously reported, with flight logs showing the former president taking at least 26 trips aboard the “Lolita Express” — even apparently ditching his Secret Service detail for at least five of the flights, according to records obtained by FoxNews.com.

Clinton’s presence aboard Jeffrey Epstein’s Boeing 727 on 11 occasions has been reported, but flight logs show the number is more than double that, and trips between 2001 and 2003 included extended junkets around the world with Epstein and fellow passengers identified on manifests by their initials or first names, including “Tatiana.” The tricked-out jet earned its Nabakov-inspired nickname because it was reportedly outfitted with a bed where passengers had group sex with young girls.

[…]

Among those regularly traveling with Clinton were Epstein’s associates, New York socialite Ghislaine Maxwell and Epstein’s assistant, Sarah Kellen, both of whom were investigated by the FBI and Palm Beach Police for recruiting girls for Epstein and his friends.

A statement the Clintons put out last month after Epstein’s arrest claimed Bill Clinton had only been on Epstein’s plane a total of 4 times, which is not true:

Even if everyone agreed it was inappropriate for Trump to promote various conspiracy theories about the Clintons and Epstein, the questions he posed today about the former President’s association with Epstein are legitimate. The American people deserve the answers to them that most in the mainstream media have so far been reluctant to dig for simply because Clinton’s a Democrat.

Here’s Why Trump Is Right to Enforce the Law On Immigrants and Welfare

Over the past few days we’ve seen a collective freakout among the media over Trump supposedly being so cold and heartless that he’s going to make it tougher to legally immigrate if you are on welfare. That means

Multiple outlets, including NPR and The Washington Post, ran articles proclaiming insinuating how unprecedented and cruel this is.

Then you had people like California Gov. Gavin Newsom spouting this kind of nonsense. Brad Slager covered that here, along with the responses from several 2020 candidates.

I’ll recap the details of why this is happening legally, but past that, let’s just talk common sense.

A country with a vast welfare system, which we have, simply can not sustain itself by allowing the world’s poor to immigrate and collect benefits. If money weren’t finite and bankruptcy weren’t a real thing, I’d have no problem with it. My emotional response to want to help everyone we can.

But that can’t happen if you don’t screen immigrants for their propensity to take more than they give. Without that dynamic, you simply put the country on a quicker path to disaster. Handing out green cards to people who immediately go on SNAP and public housing is a recipe for creating a situation where the United States can no longer help anyone. The best intentions often lead to the worst consequences.

What Trump is doing is not a rash decision he made on a whim because he hates immigrants. He’s actually enforcing a law that goes all the way back to 1996, a law that was signed by none other than Bill Clinton.

This is the stupidity of our immigration debate. The other side not only relies on specious emotional arguments, they also rely on the idea that it’s immoral or wrong to enforce the law. It’s not only the right thing to do, it’s required under the oath the President took. Every Democrat member of Congress that’s running in 2020 made the same pledge and now wants to pretend it doesn’t exist.

Don’t like the current immigration enforcement? Don’t like that the law requires immigrants to be self-sufficient? Go change the law. Making emotional pleas on Twitter and yelling Orange Man Bad is not a policy. That’s a weak minded person’s tactic.

What Trump is doing is simply following the law that preceded his administration. The fact that other administrations chose to flaunt the law is not grounds to now demand Trump do so now. The dishonesty on this topic from our media is mind-numbing.

Past that, it’s simply necessary that there be rules and stipulations placed on legal immigration into this country. To not have that will lead to the destruction of the system all together.

NY Times columnist: Jeffrey Epstein told me he had dirt on powerful people

Westlake Legal Group Jeffrey-Epstein-mugshot NY Times columnist: Jeffrey Epstein told me he had dirt on powerful people Woody Allen The Blog prince andrew Jeffrey Epstein Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Bill Clinton

NY Times columnist James B. Stewart had his first and only meeting with Jeffrey Epstein last August at the billionaire’s New York mansion. Stewart says Epstein agreed to the 90-minute interview on the grounds that the whole thing would be conducted “on background,” meaning any information Stewart gathered couldn’t be attributed to Epstein. But now that Epstein is dead, Stewart says he feels his obligation to keep the conversation semi-private has also expired.

The overriding impression I took away from our roughly 90-minute conversation was that Mr. Epstein knew an astonishing number of rich, famous and powerful people, and had photos to prove it. He also claimed to know a great deal about these people, some of it potentially damaging or embarrassing, including details about their supposed sexual proclivities and recreational drug use.

So one of my first thoughts on hearing of Mr. Epstein’s suicide was that many prominent men and at least a few women must be breathing sighs of relief that whatever Mr. Epstein knew, he has taken it with him.

Stewart doesn’t name all of the names but he does mention a few people Epstein had photos of hanging in his mansion:

He pointed to a full-length shot of a man in traditional Arab dress. “That’s M.B.S.,” he said, referring to Mohammed bin Salman, the crown prince of Saudi Arabia. The crown prince had visited him many times, and they spoke often, Mr. Epstein said…

Behind him was a table covered with more photographs. I noticed one of Mr. Epstein with former President Bill Clinton, and another of him with the director Woody Allen. Displaying photos of celebrities who had been caught up in sex scandals of their own also struck me as odd.

Epstein also discussed his prior conviction for sex with underage girls and suggested his prosecution (such as it was) was comparable to laws against homosexuality, i.e. something that more enlightened cultures should not penalize. In fact, Stewart notes that when he knocked on the door, it was answered by a young woman with a European accent who appeared to be no older than twenty. So you get the impression that his first brush with the law hadn’t change Epstein very much. Perhaps that was because he was wealthy enough to feel he could buy his way out of any situation. After all, it worked the first time.

But you also have to wonder if part of the reason Epstein felt so unconflicted about his own past is that he knew he was far from alone. You have to wonder what stories he’d heard from his famous friends and perhaps even what he knew some of them had done with girls he provided to them. Personally, I wonder if he hadn’t had the same conversation about teen girls and homosexuality with Bill Clinton or Prince Andrew or Woody Allen.

Stewart reports that Epstein reached out to him several more times, inviting him to private dinner parties with Woody Allen and later Michael Wolff and Steve Bannon (a dinner Bannon says he never attended, Wolff and Allen didn’t respond to questions). The last time Epstein called was earlier this year when he asked if Stewart would be interested in writing his biography. Stewart passed but says he wonders what he might have heard about some of these powerful people if he’d said yes.

Maybe we’ll get answers when the Feds open up Epstein’s secret safe. Or maybe he found someone else to dictate his memoirs to in the months before his arrest. It would be a shame if all the people who participated in his illegal activities with him escaped justice because of his death.

NY Post: There’s no surveillance video of Epstein’s death

Westlake Legal Group je NY Post: There’s no surveillance video of Epstein’s death Video Trump The Blog surveillance suicide prison pedophile mcc epstein doj death coroner Bill Clinton

We’re never gonna know.

Well … maybe not “never.” Cameras aren’t trained on inmates’ cells at MCC, per the Post, but they are trained on the hallways. If someone entered Epstein’s cell block to do him harm, his likeness should be on the footage somewhere.

Unless the Clintons perfected an invisibility cloak and gave it to their team of international assassins, in which case all bets are off.

There’s no surveillance video of the incident in which Jeffrey Epstein apparently hanged himself in a federal lockup in Lower Manhattan, law enforcement officials told The Post on Sunday.

Although there are cameras in the 9 South wing where the convicted pedophile was being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, they are trained on the areas outside the cells and not inside, according to sources familiar with the setup there.

Jazz already noted in an earlier post that the overworked guards on duty at MCC didn’t follow protocol by checking his cell every 30 minutes, as is required for inmates in the Special Housing Unit. But it wasn’t just one scheduled check that they missed; WaPo’s sources claim that “several” hours passed between look-ins on Epstein. Nor was that the only breach of protocol:

After he was removed from suicide watch at the end of July, Mr. Epstein had been downgraded to “special observation status,” which mandated guards check on him every 30 minutes and also required him to have a cellmate, a person familiar with the matter said.

Yet in the hours leading up to his death, it appears he had no cellmate and wasn’t receiving the required check, the person said. The cellmate had apparently left, possibly for a court appearance or another appointment, and was not quickly replaced as required by protocol, the person said.

Without both breaches of protocol, Epstein might be alive. If the guards had checked at the appointed time, they might have interrupted whatever was happening in his cell despite the fact that he had no cellmate. If he had had a cellmate, the cellmate might have alerted guards to a suicide attempt despite the fact that they weren’t checking on him at appointed times. Everything had to go right, or rather wrong, for Epstein to end up dead. Go figure.

This tweet on Saturday from a respected reporter at the Washington Post grabbed my eye:

Epstein’s representatives were sufficiently concerned that they had their own forensic pathologist attend the autopsy to observe. The coroner’s conclusion: Inconclusive, for the moment.

Barbara Sampson, New York City’s chief medical examiner, said her office conducted an autopsy Sunday but had not yet reached a determination on cause of death “pending further information.” The medical examiner also allowed Michael Baden, a private pathologist, to observe the autopsy at the request of Epstein’s representatives, Sampson said.

Conspiracy theorizing on social media this weekend was rampant, up to and including the president of the United States — although, actually, that’s par for the course for both Twitter and for Trump. The only cohort that seems skeptical of foul play is … people who actually know how the federal prison system works. Defense attorney “Caroline Court” is the latest criminal lawyer to make the case that this outcome just isn’t that surprising for an institution like MCC:

The MCC has been notoriously understaffed for some time now. Inmates have reported that they have been locked in their cells all weekend because of staff shortages, and, as I tweeted, even weekend legal visits are sometimes canceled for the same reason.

Because of the short staff issues, corrections officers at the MCC often work double shifts. Was the corrections officer covering the SHU that morning in the middle of a double and perhaps fell asleep?…

I’ll add that mental health treatment in a jail setting is often woefully inadequate. So for someone who has experience with how bad it can be, it simply does not surprise me that this happened.

Complaints about guards at MCC being spread too thin are nothing new, added law prof John Pfaff:

Complaints about guards dehumanizing inmates in federal prison, even to the point of gambling on their suicide odds, also aren’t unheard of, he added. Ken White, a former assistant U.S. Attorney turned criminal defense lawyer, made all of those same points over the weekend when Epstein conspiracy mania was in full flower, stressing that you simply can’t bet against the callousness and incompetence of administrators and staff as an explanation when catastrophe results at a federal prison. To which all I’d say is this: Wouldn’t the guards have thought to give Epstein extra attention purely for the sake of keeping heat off themselves in case he turned up dead? White scoffed at that theory in his weekend thread, claiming that only “gullible dipsh*ts” would believe that law enforcement might suffer consequences for a death on their shift, but most inmate deaths don’t draw an angry statement from the Attorney General in the immediate aftermath and white-hot media attention to the circumstances of their negligence. The guards must have anticipated how suspicious Epstein dying in their care would look and how irate the public would be. He was no ordinary prisoner. They got caught napping anyway. Why?

BREAKING: Jeffery Epstein Found Dead By Apparent Suicide

Westlake Legal Group jeffrey-epstein-mugshot-300x153 BREAKING: Jeffery Epstein Found Dead By Apparent Suicide Front Page Stories Featured Story Bill Richardson Bill Clinton Allow Media Exception 2019

(AP Photo/Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office, File)

Jeffery Epstein who was being held without bond and awaiting trial for a number of illegal acts involving minors has been found dead in his jail cell according to the New York Post. From the NYP this morning…

Convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein died overnight in an apparent suicide, law enforcement sources told the Post Saturday.

A gurney carrying a man who looked like Epstein was wheeled out of the Manhattan Correctional Center around 7:30 a.m. and headed to New York Downtown Hospital. A call for a reported cardiac arrest came in at 6:38 a.m., Fire Department sources said.

Two weeks ago, Epstein, 66, was placed on suicide watch after he was found nearly unconscious in his cell with injuries to his neck.

The multimillionaire financier was being held without bail pending trial on child sex-trafficking charges.

Epstein was close to many politicians and high profile people and was particularly close to Bill Clinton, which the media has done an awesome job trying to cover that tidbit up.

Just in the past couple of days, new names had emerged being connected with Epstein in the form of former Senate Majority Leader of the Senate and prominent Democrat George Mitchell and Former New Mexico Governor and fellow Democrat Bill Richardson.

That Epstein had an apparent suicide attempt last week and was able to allegedly be successful this time is going to be an ongoing flood of questions on how this was able to occur. Also, get ready for the FLOOD of conspiracy theories about ready to hit.

May his victims rest a lil easier now.

She’s baaack! Lewinsky produces “American Crime Story” on Clinton impeachment

Westlake Legal Group Monica-Lewinsky She’s baaack! Lewinsky produces “American Crime Story” on Clinton impeachment The Blog Television Monica Lewinsky impeachment Hillary Clinton fx Bill Clinton American Crime Story 2020 election

Just in time for the 2020 presidential election, the third season of American Crime Story is in the works. Guess what the storyline is for the new season? It’s the Clinton impeachment saga, that’s what. And, as a bonus, Monica Lewinsky is listed as a producer. The title is Impeachment: American Crime Story.

The series is on the FX channel and has a large following for true crime buffs. Past seasons included “The People v. O.J. Simpson” and “The Assassination of Gianni Versace.” A perfect example of the intersection of politics and culture will be offered up just before the 2020 presidential election – remember that time when the House of Representatives impeached President Clinton?

Production of the series is set for February 2020 and the season premiere will be Sunday, September 27, 2020. With the presidential election on November 3, 2020, the timeframe is convenient. The election will be front and center daily in the news and the impeachment of a past president is a natural connection. Given that it was former President Clinton’s wife that President Trump beat in 2016, well, it’s all very 2019, isn’t it?

Sarah Paulson, who won an Emmy for her performance as Marcia Clark in the O.J. story has signed on to play Linda Tripp. So far, the role of Bill Clinton hasn’t been cast. The FX series is based on a Jeffrey Toobin book, “A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President”. Toobin’s 1997 book on the O.J. Simpson case was used as the basis of the first season story on him. Toobin is a liberal lawyer who is frequently seen on CNN criticizing President Trump and his administration.

FX Networks and Productions chairman John Landgraf made the news official Tuesday during the network’s TCA session.

“FX’s American Crime Story franchise has become a cultural touchstone, providing greater context for stories that deserve greater understanding like the O.J. Simpson trial and saga, and Andrew Cunanan’s tragic crime spree which concluded with the assassination of Gianni Versace,” said Landgraf. “This franchise re-examines some of the most complicated, polarizing stories in recent history in a way that is relevant, nuanced and entertaining.

I think it may be interesting to watch how the story now fits into the #MeToo movement’s message, given the re-emergence of Monica Lewinsky within that movement. The former HornDog-in-Chief and his fixers completely trashed the young twenty-something intern in order to keep public sentiment focused on Clinton remaining in office. Remember the sluts and nuts strategy of political consultant James Carville that demonized any woman who came forward with a story about Clinton? That strategy is a complete reversal of today’s narrative from the left that all women must be believed, no matter what. The show promises to “explore the overlooked dimensions of the women who found themselves caught up in the scandal and political war that cast a long shadow over the Clinton presidency.”

I’ll not hold my breath on how far the story will go to show the hypocrisy of Democrats like the Clintons who hold themselves up as voices for the advancement of women’s rights while their personal lives show a different truth. We’ll see how far the “nuance” is extended in interpretation. Will the Clintons receive the bulk of the blame for how the women were treated or will that blame be shoved off on the people in charge of managing the stories as they erupted?

“This is a completely valid [story] cycle for ‘American Crime Story,’” FX chairman John Landgraf said at the Television Critics Association summer press tour here. Landgraf added that the social media environment is too quick to get outraged over a TV show it hasn’t seen.

“There’s a lot of nuance in this story that people don’t know, he said. “People are going to be very interested in this, and it’s going to be a great show.”

“If you went back and saw the way that story was covered at the time, the way we perceive many aspects of it has really been transformed,” Landgraf said. “What brought [the idea] back around was Sarah Burgess’s script [and her] reinterpretation of the material through the prism of these women.”

Landgraf says he’s pleased that Lewinsky agreed to sign on as a producer. “The fact that Monica herself wants to be involved in it maybe tells you something about the quality of the material,” he said.

Perhaps the decision to do this story and air it just before the 2020 presidential election will serve as a reminder that if Clinton could be impeached in his second term, the Trump deranged leftists can do the same in Trump’s second term. I see no reason to think that the Senate will change back to a Democrat majority so the result will be the same as in 1999. I remember when Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, and Al Gore triumphantly marched out on the White House lawn to celebrate the Senate voting down the House’s impeachment vote. Imagine the rally that Trump would hold should the same happen to him.

Former Bill Clinton Spox Says Voting for Trump Makes You a Racist. Let’s Turn His Logic Around on Him.

Joe Lockhart, who was the press secretary for President Bill Clinton during his last two years in office, is boiling mad at President Trump in the aftermath of his feud with Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD). And if you are one of Trump’s supporters, he’s got a message for you:

Lockhart appeared on CNN‘s “New Day” on Sunday where he was interviewed by anchor Victor Blackwell, who on Saturday had launched into a viral short rant defending Baltimore against Trump’s attack. Here’s how how Lockhart responded when Blackwell asked him a surprisingly fair question about his tweet:

Blackwell: “Joe, you took it one step further. You actually — and I’m going to read your tweet. ‘Anyone who supports a racist or a racist strategy is a racist themselves. 2020 is a moment of reckoning for America. Vote for Donald Trump, and you are a racist. Don’t hide it like a coward. Wear that racist badge proudly and see how it feels.’

I’m going to read that sentence again: ‘Vote for Donald Trump, and you’re a racist.’ Americans who vote for the President because, let’s say, they’re firmly pro-life, they are racist because they believe that he is right on that issue no matter who the eventual Democratic nominee is, is pro-choice, that pro-life voter is a racist because they vote for Donald Trump?”

The former Bill Clinton White House press secretary doubled down as he responded: “I think so. I think racism only exists because it’s supported. If people didn’t support racism, you wouldn’t have racists.”

After recalling that there were “hints” of Trump’s racism in 2016, [Lockhart] continued:

“They’re making this an explicit strategy. They’re saying — and it’s a logical extension of his immigration strategy — they’re saying they want to divide America into two groups — whites and nonwhites — and that is a racist strategy. So my point is, if you go into the polls and when you say you support Donald Trump, then you’re supporting his racism, and that’s the foundation of being racist.”

Watch video of Lockhart’s remarks below:

After facing a wave of criticism for his tweet and appearance on CNN, he doubled down later:

Let’s just start off with the obvious point first here:

Right? Getting a lecture from a Clinton diehard about morals and ethics is like getting a lecture from Clinton himself on the the virtues of staying faithful in your marriage.

As I wrote earlier today, Trump’s criticisms about Cummings and his district are not about racism. Cummings is just one more in a long line of Democrats who have attacked both Trump and his policies, and Trump is doing what he always does when he is attacked: He attacks back.

But for purposes of discussion, let’s say Trump was a racist as Lockhart emphatically asserts. If that made everyone who supported him a “racist”, what does Lockhart’s standard say about about his own support for Bill Clinton?

Lockhart wasn’t just his spokesman from 1998-2000. Lockhart worked for the Clinton 1996 reelection campaign, too, enthusiastically supporting a second term. He was also the deputy press secretary for Clinton before he was promoted to the press secretary role in late 1998.

Clinton’s wandering eye, overly handsy nature, and propensity to sleep around on Hillary Clinton all were well-known by that time. Clinton had also by that time been accused of multiple instances of sexual assault and harassment.

So by Lockhart’s standards, he was endorsing adultery, sexual harassment, sexism, and possibly sexual assault in working for both the Clinton campaign and administration.

See how this works, Joe? Two can play at this game.

Bonus take from Brit Hume:

Ah, memories.
