QOTD -- "Ukraine Won, Trump Lost"


"... As defeat loomed for his anti-Ukraine allies, Trump shifted his message a little. On April 18, he posted on Truth Social claiming that he, too, favored helping Ukraine. “As everyone agrees, Ukrainian Survival and Strength should be much more important to Europe than to us, but it is also important to us!” But that was after-the-fact face-saving, jumping to the winning side after his side was about to lose.  [snip]

"To make an avalanche takes more than one tumbling rock. Still, the pro-Ukraine, anti-Trump vote in the House is a very, very big rock. On something that mattered intensely to him—that had become a badge of pro-Trump identity—Trump’s own party worked with Democrats in the House and Senate to hand him a stinging defeat. This example could become contagious..."  -- neocon never-Trumper David Frum, writing in The Atlantic, citing yesterday's vote in the House (following an earlier rebellion among some Senate Republicans) defying the Malignant Loser's Putin- issued instructions not to vote for Ukraine aid.  Frum cites other examples of "tumbling rocks" auguring poorly for the Malignant Loser (we'll be less optimistic for a change and say, at this point, he'll be in a close race with President Biden come November).  But, this was a victory for Ukraine and democracy, two things the Malignant Loser has no use for, and it was accomplished in a fairly extraordinary way considering the nature of the cult and what happens to people who defy the cult leader.

Hopefully EmptyG and her pals see more of this in the future. One can almost see her Order of Lenin slipping right through her fingers.

Seafury -- yes, Comrade Putin might be wondering if he picked the wrong horse(face).

There is going to be a hold on those fat campaign checks coming out of Moscow.
