    Its kind of ironic that a virus made in China named after a Mexican Beer does Trump in

    - A hoax started by the Democrats and the Chinese
    - Should only get 15 people sick then go away on its own

    Now flash forward a few months later...

    Of course Mike Pence tested negative. Do you think mother was going to let him talk to Hope Hicks unattended to catch some filthy lady disease from her?

    They didn't make Hicks' positive test public. Bloomberg News did. After that they had to report about the President. With Trump being positive, and therefore forced to stay in the WH, they could not keep quiet,
    If Hicks was not leaked and Trump was negative, they would not have said anything. Just lied about where Hicks was.

    In 2014, 2015, as well as 2016, "Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day" published profiles of Rick Santorum, the former U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania, a two-time failed candidate for President of the United States aka “The Frothy One” himself. We're talking about a guy who demonizes the LGBT community, compares homosexuality to bestiality and relating his fight against marriage equality to the war on terror after 9/11. He also declared children conceived during rape to be "a blessing in disguise", said JFK's speech about his faith not excluding him from the presidency made him nearly "throw up in his mouth", and a variety of other race-baiting lines about minorities on welfare that I'd just as soon let you click on the link back to that original profile than have to type again. His presence in the 2012 elections drove the GOP so hard right that candidates were falling all over themselves to compete with him to match his opposition to BIRTH CONTROL, in a day and age where 98-99% of Americans have no problem with it. Santorum was inexplicably the runner-up to Mitt Romney for the GOP nomination for the office of President of the United States in 2012, and briefly threw his hat into the ring as a presidential candidate in 2016, although, without the curiosity he inspired four years earlier. He now just serves as a terrible pundit who occasionally turns up on cable news. As he did earlier this week where he made excuses for Donald Trump's failing to condemn white supremacy in the first 2020 presidential debate.

    It was on this date in 2017, as well as 2018, that “Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day” profiled Danny Tarkanian, who repeatedly tried parlaying his family name into a career in politics, but in Nevada state-wide elections since 2004, is a six time loser. Yes, that is SIX times. In 2004, he lost a bid for U.S. Senate. In 2006, he failed to become Nevada's Secretary of State. In 2010, he had a second losing bid for U.S. Senate. In 2012, he bumbled away a shot at becoming the U.S. House Representative from Nevada's 4th Congressional District, and he tried carpet-bagging himself into Congress again unsuccessfully in 2016, losing against Congresswoman Jackie Rosen in Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District. And in 2018, Danny Tarkanian again had designs on Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District, now that Jacky Rosen is running for U.S. Senate, only to lose yet again to Susie Lee. For those who think his surname sounds familiar, Danny is the son of Jerry Tarkanian, the former head basketball coach of UNLV who led the Runnin' Rebels to a national championship, but also had the reputation of running some of the most corrupt programs in NCAA history. But while we've established Danny Tarkanian is a loser in politics of historic proportions, but the "why" still matters. Going back years, Tarkanian was also deeply involved in anti-immigrant rhetoric, so much so that he was endorsed by the anti-immigrant militia group known as the Minutemen, and in 2016, he endorsed Donald Trump's disastrous plan to build a border wall along the U.S./Mexico border. Immigration, of course, is not Danny Tarkanian's only extremist political stance, as he also believes there should be zero restrictions on the right to bear arms (so enjoy your tanks and tactical nukes, NRA nuts), and on abortion, believes there should not even be exceptions for incest or victims of rape. We also have to factor in Danny Tarkanian's shady real estate ventures, like the 2007 land deal that saw him lose a $17 million settlement, where his only defense was that it was the bank's fault (a bank which collapsed during the 2007-2008 finanical crisis) for giving him a loan that he would never actually be able to pay off. Truly, another example of hos the GOP is the Party of responsibility, right? Tarkanian has impotently threatened to sue the past two Democrats who trounced him for running attack ads bringing up his shady financial dealings and bankruptcy, that will, of course, be laughed out of court. We have yet to hear of Danny Tarkanian having announced a seventh run for office yet.

    On this date in 2019, “Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day” profiled Kevin Nicholson, a 2018 candidate for U.S. Senate from Wisconsin, who was also a man who was such a terrible candidate that his own parents donated the maximum amount to his potential opponent, Sen. Tammy Baldwin, to defeat him. In a move that was the latest in GOP “Christian values”, Nicholson responded by writing an op-ed to rip his own parents, and claim that this was an example of “the intolerance of the Democartic Party”. In a later radio interview, Nicholson attacked the “cognitive thought process” of veterans who support Democrats, claiming that they “abandoned the Constitution”, and that they “have shown overt disrespect to our veterans”. (We’ll remind you that Nicholson backs Donald Trump, a draft dodger who attacks Gold Star families, questions the honor of the late Sen. John McCain, and has repeatedly whined about not being able to violate the rights of others as they are granted in the Constitution.) Bizarrely, in 1999-2000, Kevin Nicholson was the leader of the College Democrats of America, which earned him a bit of a double-take from Republican Primary voters, given his statements. His time with the group was highly tempestuous, though, as he acted more like someone conducting a coup than a progressive. Serving in the military during the war on terror only seemed to have turned him into a conservative nationalist, though, make no mistake, as he vocally supported Tump’s immigration policies and failed economic policies with tariffs on China. Anyway, Kevin Nicholson couldn’t woo Republican voters by bagging on his parents, and lost in the GOP Primary to Leah Vukmir. We’re pretty sure we’ve not heard the last of him, given that he is still in his early 40s, however his first foray onto the political scene wasn’t exactly overwhelming. We will set aside his profile at this time, and take a look at another wacky Republican today instead. (Current crazy/stupid scoreboard, is now 921-45, since this was established in July 2014.



    Steve Von Loor
    Welcome to what is the 921st original profile here at “Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day”, where we’ll be discussing Steve Von Loor, a candidate for U.S. House of Representatives for North Carolina’s 4th Congressional District in both 2018 and 2020. Von Loor, who was born in Alabama but grew up in Ecuador, was of course, able to take nothing personally from his international experiences, instead being a die-hard supporter for Donald Trump’s immigration policies, focusing on an end to family-based immigration.

    Von Loor’s xenophobia was focused more extensively on his intolerance for Muslims. In May of 2018 on social media, he posted a debunked Islamophobic meme that the entire religion was banned in the United States decades ago by the 1952 Immigration and Nationality Act to make the claim that “ISLAM IS NOT ALLOWED IN THE USA!” and claimed, “Islam is trying to destroy America.” Not surprisingly, was endorsed by rabid Islamphobe Dinesh D’Souza, and commented on the social media feed of white nationalist Nick Fuentes (one of the organizers of Charlottesville’s “Unite the Right” rally), where he practically begged to be interviewed by Fuentes.

    If Steve Von Loor’s issues with Muslims and immigrants weren’t off-putting enough for voters, it was then revealed that he had a long history of allegedly committing domestic violence against his ex-wife. To say nothing about how he conducts himself online, as several stories came forward of Von Loor making inappropriate comments in the social media feeds of models he was lusting after. These problems had a lot to do with why Steve Von Loor lost in 2018 with only 24% of the vote.

    Steve Von Loor has become even more unhinged of late, as several times while campaigning for the nomination to challenge Congressman David Price in 2020, he began posting on Twitter while using Qanon hashtags, if not outright posting the Qanon slogan. It didn’t help him much, as he failed to even exit the GOP Primary, finishing a distant third with only 17% of the vote.

    We don’t know if Steve Von Loor intends on becoming a perennial losing candidate or not, but we’d prefer if he just went away, like all the women he shamelessly throws himself at.

    They also didn't warn the Biden Campaign about this. Biden found out like the rest of us.

    Trump is having 'Mild symptoms'.

    Be prepared for Pence to take over, it could happen.

    Yes, only a complete idiot would try this gamble. And he'd have to be surrounded by other complete idiots and ...

    “Mild” symptoms for a 74 year old could be rather problematical.
