Interesting thing about demands and ultimatums: they only work on people you actually have some power to persuade. These are people who fear you, whom you control in some fashion, people who want to please you. Or people who need something that you provide them and so they comply out of necessity. None of these phrases in any way describes the dynamic between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. So why is Trump even wasting his breath demanding that Joe Biden take this ad down? That’s the real story here, not the fact that Trump is trashing the ad, calling it fake news, the usual. That’s a daily occurrence. But the comedy here is that Trump can’t possibly think that Biden is going to do anything but laugh at his demand, can he?

Trump claimed these statements never happened, according to the Daily Beast.

Those denials continued Sunday, first at a rally in Las Vegas. “He said I stood over graves of soldiers and I said: ‘These people are suckers and losers, the dead soldiers from World War I,’’ Trump said, referring to Biden. He went on to claim the whole episode was “made up” and, despite the Biden campaign knowing it’s “phony,” they still “took an ad using it—these are sick people.”

Trump appeared to be referring to an attack ad launched by the Biden campaign on Friday during the president’s visit to Normandy for ceremonies commemorating the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings. The video featured the reported “suckers” and “losers” quotes, along with audio of Trump mocking the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) as being thought of as a “war hero” because he was captured during the Vietnam War. “I like people that weren’t captured,” Trump added. […]

At the rally in Vegas, Trump accused his political opponents of fabricating stories about him in order to get elected. “Unless you’re a psycho or a crazy person or a very stupid person, who would say that, anyway?” Trump said, referring to the “suckers” and “losers” comments.

He also took a swipe at the “geniuses” who advised him simply not to mention the allegation. “It just never goes away, I gotta mention it,” Trump told his supporters. “I don’t like mentioning it. But for me to say ‘suckers and losers’ about people that died in World War I in front of military people? It’s not a possibility you could say a thing like that.”

Trump’s fury about the matter continued in a pair of Truth Social posts Sunday. He dismissed the “losers and suckers” claim as “another Democrat Disinformation ‘hit job’” and said only “a sicko with an axe to grind would suggest that anyone would make such a statement.”

They even made these horrific words into an advertisement, which shows how desperate they are,” the post continued. “No President, especially ‘dumb as a rock’ Joe Biden, has done more for our Military than DONALD J. TRUMP. The Military hates Crooked Joe, and all of the failure he represents. Take down the Fake Ad, Joe, and stop the unprecedented Weaponization of ‘Justice’ against your Political Opponent.”

In another post, he again claimed to have “never said that dead Soldiers are ‘losers and suckers.’” “Anytime you see that despicable FAKE statement used, remember that it comes from the FASCIST SCUM that is destroying our Country,” he wrote.

It’s obvious that Trump is very worked up over this. And it may simply be that he’s looking at all these comments put together and they do paint a pretty grim portrait of how he sounds on this topic. So of course he’s going to say it’s all fake news, even though these comments have been independently corroborated. John Kelly told CNN these comments were made. The widow Trump said, “He knew what he was getting into,” to, tearfully shared that statement on television. She was there with her congresswoman. The cracks about John McCain were on TV, he definitely said those.
Each one of these statements can be traced back to a source and that’s Trump’s real problem, is that he said it, he knows damn good and well that he said it, and like so many of Trump’s words and actions, now it’s come back to bite him in the ass.
Biden hasn’t taken the ad down. I would not hold my breath waiting for that to happen.

  1. Hmmm. Maybe Dimwit Donny, the felon rapist loser, is lying about his alleged previous statements.

    I guess, to be sure, we’d have to check whether he has ever lied before, about anything else.

  2. Crooked Joe??:???

    Now let’s think for a minute here:

    Was Joe Biden found guilty of sexual assault in 2003 and in August 2003, Judge Kaplan dismissed a countersuit and wrote that Carroll’s accusation of “rape” is “substantially true”?

    Was Joe Biden found guilty of defamation (twice)?

    Was Joe Biden found guilty of fraud in 32 counts?

    Did Joe Biden try to old back money approved by Congress for overseas aid (think Ukraine)?

    Was Joe Biden found guilty of running a scam university and made to pay $25 million to claimants?

    But, according to Felonious Don, that is the case – his own tiny little hands are sparkling clean (or so he would have you believe)

    So being a libelous, fraudulent rapist isn’t being crooked, but lending money to your brother is?

  3. Yet millions don’t give a phuck how evil or much he lies and lies and lies. America…the mask is off. Unless we slap this fascist shit down in November in a BIG WAY, we can’t say shit about the murderous German nazis.

    • magats either don’t care that Von Shitzinpants said this or they believe everything that comes out of the moron’s stinking pie-hole. Probably both. This sickness pervading our nation is not only frightening, it needs to be eliminated as much as Von Shitzinpants and the rest of his supporters need to be. There is no education possible for these people so eliminating it in that way isn’t going to happen. When these RWNJ’s scream incoherently for civil war they’re probably correct although not for the reasons they believe. This time however, if rationality wins, the losers need to be tried for treason unlike what happened in the 1800’s. One of this nation’s biggest mistakes in its entire history was allowing the traitors who seceded and rose up against the U.S. to go on their merry little ways sans punishment.

      We can either pretend we will get our country out of this morass of idiocy through the ballot pull or we can do something that will actually work–fight.

  4. trump lacks the courage even to own up to his words, let alone have the guts to put his life on the line in the service of his country. I hope Joe Biden skewers him relentlessly and exacts some retribution for those who have.

  5. I think this is a very effective add. trump can call it lies at his rallies but that reaches a few thousand people. (already drinking the coolaid) This Biden add will be seen by 10 or 20 times more people, maybe more, I am not sure about the outreach of online ads.
    There is no way for trump to do anything about it because if you spend all your time on counter ads then that just reinforces the original add. The richard nixon, I am not a crook, just made everyone visualize him as a crook.
    We have all been keeping an eye on polls, but polls do not reflect Biden actually beginning to engage in the campaign and start getting people engaged in the campaign. Four years ago Biden beat trump with very little campaigning, while trump was killing his supporters in big rallies. Yes we’re talking to you dead herman cain.
    One other difference, Biden has resources, resources which trump had four years ago like free flights everywhere. trump grifted campaign stops by not paying for security. Something that is not going to happen again. trump also will not have as much free publicity like he got in 2016 and 2020. even fox is censoring him now.
    This add also tells me Biden has competent media people. trump has lara trump and a shell of an rnc. the rnc is on a shoestring budget with funds hemorrhaging to cover trumps legal bills.
    In 1779 John Paul Jones said “I have not yet begun to fight” after a request for surrender. He and his crew carried the day, at long odds. Something to think about.
