‘Feeble, Confused And Tired’: Donald Trump Torched After Bizarre Gaffe-Filled Appearance

Trump fumblingPresident Joe Biden’s campaign on Monday released an unusually blunt statement tearing into Donald Trump as “feeble, confused, and tired” after an appearance marked by verbal stumbles as well as a bizarre social media post in which he likened himself to Christ.

“He spent the weekend golfing, the morning comparing himself to Jesus, and the afternoon lying about having money he definitely doesn’t have,” the statement said.

Trump on Monday faced two court decisions.


Judge Rejects Trump's Attempt To Delay Hush Money Trial

Stormy Daniels trial begins Aprtil 15th.A New York state judge ruled Monday that the criminal trial against former President Donald Trump stemming from a hush money payment he allegedly made to a porn actor can proceed, denying Trump’s request to have the case delayed further or altogether dismissed.

Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee for president, sat alongside his lawyers as Judge Juan Merchan announced that jury selection in the case would begin on April 15.

The trial — the first-ever criminal trial of a former president — had originally been scheduled to start Monday but was delayed one month after prosecutors agreed to allow Trump’s defense attorneys to review some 100,000 pages of documents of potential new evidence.

Former President Donald Trump and his co-defendants need to post only a $175 million bond or deposit to shield their assets as they appeal their real estate fraud trial loss, an appeals court ruled Monday.

The ruling helps Trump as he has scrambled to come up with the cash before New York Attorney General Letitia James could start going after his assets. The appeals court said in the ruling the defendants have 10 days to post the bond or deposit. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee has been struggling under the weight of not just the $454 million civil fraud judgment, but also an $83.3 million defamation trial loss to advice columnist E. Jean Carroll.

"We will abide by the decision of the Appellate Division, and post either a bond, equivalent securities, or cash," Trump posted on Truth Social soon after the ruling. He also attacked the the $454 million judgment.


Tammy Murphy drops out of New Jersey Senate primary

Tammy Murhy drops out

Tammy Murphy, the wife of Gov. Phil Murphy (D-N.J.), ended her primary campaign for Senate on Sunday.

The announcement abruptly ends a highly anticipated Senate bid that launched with high expectations, leaving Rep. Andy Kim (D-N.J.) as the only major candidate remaining in the race to replace Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.).

“After many busy, invigorating and yes, challenging months, I am suspending my Senate campaign today,” Murphy announced in a video. “I’ve been genuine and factual throughout. But it is clear to me that continuing in this race will involve waging a very divisive and negative campaign, which I am not willing to do.”

Murphy struggled to overcome concerns about her qualifications and ties to the governor’s office, despite a suite of high-power endorsements from most of the state’s congressional delegation and backing from influential county party leaders.


Louisiana Democrat wins sheriff’s race do-over after first victory was disputed

La. Dem wins sheriff's position after do over

Months after his disputed one-vote victory in a Louisiana sheriff’s race was tossed by a court, a Democrat was decisively elected over his Republican rival on his second try Saturday.

Henry Whitehorn got 53% of the vote in Saturday’s election in north-west Louisiana’s Caddo parish. He’ll be the first Black sheriff in the parish – which is the word Louisiana uses for county – after defeating John Nickelson, who is white.

Returns from the Louisiana secretary of state’s office show Whitehorn defeated Nickelson by more than 4,000 votes this time.

Turnout was considerably higher in the second race. State figures show 65,239 people voted in Saturday’s sheriff’s race – up from 43,247 in November.


‘It’ll be bedlam’: how Trump is creating conditions for a post-election eruption

Trump arranging for post-election bedlamA bloodbath. The end of democracy. Riots in the streets. Bedlam in the country. Donald Trump has made apocalyptic imagery a defining feature of his presidential election campaign, warning supporters that if he does not win – and avoid criminal prosecution – the US will enter its death throes.

The prophecies of doom, repeated ad nauseam at rallies and on social media, have raised fears that the former president is making an electoral tinderbox that could explode in November. While there has been much commentary assessing the implications of a Trump win, some experts warn that a Trump defeat could provide an equally severe stress test of American democracy.

“Regardless of whether Donald Trump wins or loses, there’s going to be violence,” said Michael Fanone, a retired police officer who was seriously injured by pro-Trump rioters at the US Capitol on 6 January 2021. “If Donald Trump loses, he’s not going to concede and he’s going to inspire people to commit acts of violence, just like he did in the weeks and months leading up to January 6, 2021.



Biden signs $1.2tn spending package as government shutdown is averted

President signs spending bill

President Joe Biden on Saturday signed into law a $1.2tn budget bill to keep the US government funded through a fiscal year that began six months ago and to avert a partial shutdown, according to a statement released by the White House.

“The bipartisan funding bill I just signed keeps the government open, invests in the American people, and strengthens our economy and national security,” Biden said in the statement.

The bill was passed in the Senate after midnight in a vote that fell 74-24. It came after funding had expired for government agencies, but the White House sent out a notice shortly after the deadline announcing the Office of Management and Budget had ceased shutdown preparations because there was a high degree of confidence that Congress would pass the legislation and the president would sign it on Saturday.

“Because obligations of federal funds are incurred and tracked on a daily basis, agencies will not shut down and may continue their normal operations,” the White House statement said.
