As Trump's World Turns: A Third Kavanuagh Accuser (VIDEO)

Image result for three kavanaugh accusers

As more women have come forth with reports of bad behavior from a younger Brett Kavanaugh, Trump has moved his quit hands-off strategy to that of a bumbling late night previewer of misspelled words and cheap shots against Atty Michael Avenatti.

What Is A Rational American To Think?
Newsweek and other media recently reported about another unedited (fixed) Trump Twitter blunder.  

President Donald Trump’s defense of his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh took a turn Monday night when he accidentally accused Democrats of using “false acquisitions” to destroy the judge in a Twitter misspelling.
The president had previously voiced support for Kavanaugh but stepped up his criticism of the Democrats over the allegations, which he called “false.” 
“The Democrats are working hard to destroy a wonderful man, and a man who has the potential to be one of our greatest Supreme Court Justices ever, with an array of False Acquisitions the likes of which have never been seen before!" Trump wrote in a since deleted tweet, misspelling the word "accusations." 
In a second tweet that remains on his Twitter feed, the president posted the same message but changed “acquisitions” to “accusations.”
Well, typos and misspells do occur, right? At the level US President stumbling errors are inexcusable as the errors denote an absence of patience with the tool, unprofessionalism, impetuous acts and a level of fright uncommon for a US President.

Let's move to the actual point of this post: A US president hovering over his iPhone while threatening and passing disparaging remarks at a fellow citizen.  

Today's tweet hit the Internet just before 10:00AM and after the revelation and legal declaration of yet another women with allegations against a young Kavanaugh. The third woman lawyer is Michael Avenatti of the Trump/Story Daniels hush money payment case.

Avenatti is a third rate lawyer who is good at making false accusations, like he did on me and like he is now doing on Judge Brett Kavanaugh. He is just looking for attention and doesn’t want people to look at his past record and relationships - a total low-life!
Within 20 minutes Avenatti responded to Trump's tweet.

Replying to @realDonaldTrump
“False accusations?” Like those crimes your fixer Cohen pled to? You are an habitual liar and complete narcissist who also is a disgrace as a president and an embarrassment to our nation. You are so inept that your “best and brightest” are Cohen and Giuliani. Let’s go.
What is all of this about you ask? Answer: Potential mounting concerns about Brett Kavanaugh is not (or was not) an innocent 'fratboy' who may have taken part in yet unproven abuses of young schoolmate girls.

H/O: Julie Swetnick├é 

Earlier in the week, Avenatti appears on various cable news networks (with an exception of Fox News) with information he recently acquired a client who wished to join two other women in charges Kavanaugh has a past which should be considered as we move towards Kavanaugh's confirmation. Julie Swetnick has come forth.

According to Avenatti's Affidavit Swetnick claims as a high school student Kavanaugh joined other boys in spiking party punch with drugs or wooed grain alcohol.  Do such acts by males remind of other cases currently in the news? How better to lower female inhibitions and avoid "No" responses than drugging or inducing intoxication?  Sadly, the accusations have reached a level of words including "gang raping" lines of boys outside a room, and "pulling a train". 

The affidavit is available for viewing on this CBNC link.

Trump has graced our early afternoon with disparaging remarks about the three women who have accused Kavanaugh while also taking shots at Avenatti. We could only capture Trump's remarks via a running Twitter thread.  
Trump has also taken to using a characterization which, all things considered, he should avoid.  He has taken to calling the issues related to Kavanaugh a "con." Kind of like Trump University and a $25 million dollar out-of-court settlement to ripped-off enrollees.  Or, more relevant to the Office of the US Presidency: "Mexico will pay for the wall."

Let's watch and hear Trump in classic oral and non-verbal word diarrhea.  

What a show!  When will the reality TV series get canceled?

A Tea Party Media Operative and Performer Challenged Via Facts

Rick Santelli, open mouth yell the lies
One month after Barack Obama's inauguration as the 44th President of the United States, Rick Santelli CBNC floor reporter on the Chicago Board of Trade, performed the Mother of conservative rants on the CBT trading floor. His performance was possibly the first visual manifestation of what was to come via the Koch brothers Americans for Prosperity tea party movement.

If you have never seen the rant, spend five minutes or skip through the performance. 

 I have read headlines with a moniker of "Rant of the Year (2009)."  
The New York Times published a piece the day after the Santeilli rant. The piece included conservative support for the rant and comment from people who earn a living via media scrutiny and posit about our financial markets.
The New York Times, February 20, 2009
Yesterday Rick Santelli, who reports from the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade the for CNBC, unleashed a rant against Obama’s newly announced housing bailout plan, intended to help some homeowners refinance mortgages and avoid foreclosure. The clip was quickly linked to and embedded in Web sites everywhere, and provoked intense reaction that pretty much broke along partisan lines.
Read more including the aforementioned comments

Santelli's rant was an awfully well crafted display of emotion against Obama Administration plan to assist people who were victims of the Bush sub-prime crash and the 2008 collapse of the US economy. Crooks and Liars editors must also have felt Santelli's 2009 rant was staged to provide impetus for the Koch tea party movement; linked here.

The well crafted visual,  replete with staged carnival barking, led to a movement that inspired high-end baby boomers to protest. Sales of the American flag surely quadrupled. Lawn chair sales sky-rocketed.  It is possible the mobile restroom company revenues went over the top to accommodate aging prostrates, bladders and urinary tracts.

NoTaxesNever before had America experienced protests from its high-end baby Boomers. It was a movement of movements for the early 21st Century and it was a major facade. "No Taxes" was the mantra; winning the US House and Senate was the underlying mission.

It was a movement that provided energy and inertia for conservative victories in the 2010 mid-term elections. The tea party capture and infestation of the US House of Representatives has become a major contributor to the current do nothing Congress, credit rating downgrades, government shutdowns and the (so-called) "Sequester." President Obama referred to the 2010 tea party victory as a "shellacking" for the Democrats. It was an existential "shellacking" for the nation, we simply had no idea at the time.

Apparently, Santelli embarked on another rant this week. Santell's target this week: Federal reserve policy. He was met head-on with a panel who placed credibility over rhetoric and performance.

A final question, because we need not comment beyond the video above.

Why do people on the Right (media in particular) to the person deploy wide-open mouth yelling and screaming when challenged or cornered?
