“Trump’s lying, his self-regard, his self-soothing, his lack of empathy, his narcissistic rage, his contempt for norms, rules, laws, facts and simple truths — have all come home to roost.” – George Conway – @gtconway3d, WAPO, June 5, 2020

“Trump’s ignorance flows like a mighty deluge. It is breathtaking. His innate malice combines with an inherent laziness and weakness to form an almost unstoppable tsunami of stupidity and offensiveness. Today he praised the SS. His ignorance is not exculpatory. What a disgrace.” – Steve Schmidt – @SteveSchmidtSES on Twitter.

Tulsa Rally Flop: President Donald Trump was trumped and humiliated by Mary Jo Laupp, a 51-year-old grandmother who posted a video request on TikTok. “All of those of us that want to see this 19,000 seat auditorium barely filled or completely empty go reserve tickets now and leave him standing alone there on the stage.” Furious that the rally was originally scheduled for Juneteenth, a holiday commemorating the end of slavery, she asked her 1000 followers to purchase tickets but fail to attend. It snowballed from there. Trump bragged that over 1 million people would show up. Laupp caused more damage to his re-election with a single sentence than all the anti-Trump books combined. #TikTokTrump
