Donald Trump Jr, if you are listening, Daddy will throw you under the bus and let you rot in prison.


Donald Trump's former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen claimed Trump said that if one of his kids had to go to prison over the family business to "make sure" it was Donald Jr., not Ivanka.

Speaking to MSNBC on Saturday, Cohen said Trump gave him the instruction when his children were on the verge of being indicted by the Manhattan District Attorney's office in 2012.

"You may recall that there was the district attorney's case here for Trump Soho where it was either Don or Ivanka was in very big trouble as a result of lying about the number of units that had been sold," Cohen told MSNBC's Alex Witt.

"And Donald said it to me I mean I wouldn't say it if it wasn't said directly to me he goes 'if one or the other has to go to prison, make sure that it's Don because Don would be able to handle it.'"

Less than 13% of the population 18 or older are anti-vax or haven't had a covid jab.

If you've had at least one shot, for whatever reason, I figure you aren't hard-core anti-vax. Even if you had to get a jab to do your job or to please your partner, etc., you aren't likely to believe the anti-vax conspiracy theories.

This helps put the size of the anti-vax movement in perspective.

Percent of US Population who have had at least one shot.

Total 75.2%
≥ 5 Years of Age 79.9%
≥ 12 Years of Age 85.2%
≥ 18 Years of Age 87.1%
≥ 65 Years of Age 95%

GOOD NEWS! USA new covid cases: 827k was 897k 7 days ago, UK 99K was 176k, Canada 29k was 44k

Among all the doom and gloom, here's some good news! It looks like cases may have peaked and USA cases may drop sharply in the next week and then in the weeks beyond that, in line with trends set by other nations. And as covid cases drop, you know what that means? It's good for vulnerable people, it's good for hospital workers, it's good for businesses, it's good for consumer confidence, it's good for the economy, it's good for Joe Biden and his approval numbers. It's good news for America!

What would you say if you thought that at least a few Democratic lawmakers read DU?

Republican lies and conspiracy theories have become the norm for much of the population. We could be three years away from dictatorship in America.
What would you say to them right now?
What advice would you give?
What do you think they could be doing that they aren't?

I would be interested to hear your ideas.

Old video surfaces of Rand Paul telling students that spreading misinformation is a 'great tactic."

The lecture was reported on at the time by The Atlantic, which detailed the context of the question. According to The Atlantic, Paul was asked by a student if he had "last-minute advice" for their exams the next day.

In response, Paul said that he "never, ever cheated" and did not condone the practice, but added: "But I would sometimes spread misinformation. This is a great tactic. Misinformation can be very important."

Paul then described how he and some classmates would spread misinformation to students they viewed as competitors and send them down the wrong path during exam prep.

"That's my advice, misinformation works," Paul said.

Representatives for Paul did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Insider.

The video surfaced after NIAID director Dr. Anthony Fauci accused Paul this week of spreading misinformation about him for political gain.

Idiot Ron DeSantis asked if people ever sought testing to see if they were sick before covid.


"Now think about it," DeSantis said Friday. "Before COVID did anyone go out and seek testing to determine if they were sick? It's usually you feel like you're sick and you get tested to determine what you maybe have come down with."

Should Biden (or another Democratic candidate) agree to a debate if Trump runs in 2024?

Every Democratic lawmaker should have agreed to do this.

I wish they had all agreed that every single time they said the name Trump, they prefaced it with "Bad Loser."

"Bad Loser Trump" repeated a million times would have redefined Trump, just as he used childish names to redefine his opponents. But there's a serious point. Too many Americans don't think he's a bad loser. They believe him when he baselessly says the election was stolen from him. But it is not too late to adopt this meme. I offer them this opportunity to help save America free of charge!

Why is Liz Cheney more outspoken in attacking Trump than many lawmakers on the left?

Example of headlines today: Liz Cheney says that Trump is unfit for office and 'clearly can never be anywhere near the Oval Office ever again.'

She has the guts, the focus, the ferocity to speak out against that vile creature who is still plotting to destroy American democracy. Quite right that any lawmaker should do that, and shameful that Trump has anyone on the right who still supports him, but why is Liz Cheney more outspoken than many lawmakers on our own side? Shouldn't they all be yelling this from the rooftops every day?

A year ago today, Trump committed a crime. Why hasn't he been arrested already?

One year ago today (January 2, 2021), Trump called Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and pressured him to change the state's 2020 vote totals. That alone is a crime. Why the hell hasn't Trump already been charged?
