Trump Jr. doubles down on his father's McDonald's menu expertise: Nobody eats more of it per capita!

Donald Trump Jr. wants everyone to know that his dad is still a big consumer of McDonald's meals.

The former president was seen at a McDonald's outlet in East Palestine on Wednesday buying meals for first responders and saying he probably knows the menu better than McDonald's employees.

"By the way, 100% accurate, ok. No one knows it better," Trump Jr. said of his dad's comment.

"No one probably eats more of it, per capita, than Donald Trump," he added.

Trump Jr., the former president's oldest son, also said it was nice seeing his father "just sitting there at McDonald's."

"It was DJT at his best," Trump Jr. said.

Two women age 40ish, never had partners or friends, never driven cars, living with parents.

These are my cousins, very withdrawn, child-like, scared of the world, have jobs but little face-to-face contact. Parents unapproachable, authoritarian, borderline paranoid, over-protective. What should I do, if anything?

Seditionist Marjorie Taylor Greene Calls for Republican States to Secede From the Union

Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) decided to mark President’s Day by proposing that red states break off from the United States of America.

“We need a national divorce,” Greene declared on Twitter. “We need to separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government. Everyone I talk to says this. From the sick and disgusting woke culture issues shoved down our throats to the Democrat’s traitorous America Last policies, we are done.”

Lawyer of Jan 6 rioter: My client is working with expert "that specializes in cult deprograming."

Dustin Thompson, a college-educated Ohio man who testified that he believed Trump's lies about the 2020 election, was convicted on six charges in April after he told jurors he was seeking Trump's "respect" and "approval" on Jan. 6. His prior attorney argued that Trump "authorized" the attack on the Capitol, and took advantage of "vulnerable" people like his client.

"You didn't love America that day," Senior U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton told Thompson while sentencing him on Friday. Walton said he didn't understand how "people can be gullible enough to accept a lie and act on that lie."

Thompson's new lawyer said in a filing ahead of his sentencing that Thompson was working with "an individual that specializes in cult deprograming" and "was confronted with facts about the 'stolen election' conspiracy theory among others and how psychological manipulation is used to indoctrinate the followers of a conspiracy."

Benghazi: 4 Americans die. 10 investigations. Covid: 1.1 million die. Where are the investigations?

Hundreds of thousands of people died unnecessarily because of the lies by the right, especially by Trump and the right-wing media.

In total twice as many Americans died from covid than WW1 and WW2 combined and it is just accepted.

Studies show twice as many Republicans died once vaccines became widely available.

The covid lies and deaths need to be investigated, those responsible need to be held to account, and lessons about right-wing propaganda need to be learned (by Republicans in particular).

Why isn't it already happening?

Musk to Twitter staff: You must work long hours at high intensity or leave the company.

Elon Musk has told Twitter staff that they must commit to working "long hours at high intensity" or else leave the company, according to reports.

In an email to staff, the social media giant's new owner said workers should agree to the pledge if they wanted to stay, the Washington Post reported.

Those who do not sign up will be given three months severance pay, Mr Musk added.

The BBC has contacted Twitter for comment.

In his email to staff, also seen by The Guardian, Mr Musk said that Twitter "will need to be extremely hardcore" in order to succeed.

"This will mean working long hours at high intensity. Only exceptional performance will constitute a passing grade," he said.

Dear Donald Trump: an open letter

Dear Donald,

I urge you to avenge the appalling way you have been treated by the Republican Party. These RINOs have shown you a lack of respect. Some of them have refused to call you great. Some are trying to block your involvement in the Georgia runoff. Some have even blamed you for the idiots who couldn’t even defeat their Democratic challengers. They side with the corrupt media instead of recognizing your achievements to unite this nation. I urge you to destroy the Republican Party, to divide the party, and to rip it to shreds. Only through aggressive action will they show you the respect you deserve. In particular, you would be admired by Putin and every tough guy if you could damage Ron DeSanctimonious and the old crow, McConnell. I sincerely believe that by doing all this you will truly make America great again.

Yours gratefully,

Donald Trump supporters
