Trump’s New Conspiracy Theory: President Biden’s Not Really In Charge
Donald Trump’s life motto seems to be “If you can’t beat em, make up any lie you want about them.” It’s worked well for him throughout his life, employing the tactic of quoting some unknown anonymous source (“a friend”, “many people are saying…not me, but many people…”) to create a rumor for MAGA to accept as the latest truth. Trump has never worked harder in his life than in the last few months to stay on the national radar, forcing Lindsey Graham into making declarations of public loyalty and creating a “new platform” (aka a blog) to stay in touch with his base.
Now that he’s established some sort of way to still get the word out, the former guy has created a brand new conspiracy about the Current Guy: that he’s not in charge at all while Vice President Kamala Harris secretly runs everything.
According to a new profile in The Washington Post, Trump has been whining that President Biden is ‘a disaster’ and baselessly claims that ‘Joe isn’t in charge, everybody knows it’s Kamala’ in an attempt to portray President Biden as an unwitting stooge of Vice President Harris. It’s notable that this was also the same angle used against former President George W. Bush when his detractors openly accused Vice President Dick Cheney of actually making the major policy decisions impacting the country.
Trump has emerged from his West Palm Beach hibernation — refashioning himself as the president of the Republican States of America and reshaping the party in ways both micro and macro.

All of this comes amid the rumblings that the former guy is contemplating another run in 2024, although it could be another typical Trump smokescreen to divert from his looming prosecutions in Georgia and New York.
Ivanka, Don Jr. and Eric ― three of Donald Trump’s adult children — continue to stick taxpayers with the cost of their Secret Service protection. They racked up more than $140,000 in charges in the first month following President Biden’s inauguration. https://t.co/8QS8bSjrYH

The piece also says Trump’s reappearance is “fueled by an ego-driven desire to remain at the center of national attention” and truer words were never printed.
Joe Biden & Jimmy Carter are the type of people we should all aspire to be. They’re generous, wise, compassionate, caring, kind, honorable, intelligent, & respected.
Donald Trump & his vile spawn Don Jr. are disgusting fascist monsters who embody the absolute worst of humanity.
