DAILY KOS

When the Supreme Leader, @realDonaldTrump, won the election—in the biggestElectoral College landslide since 2012liberals assumed that things would be bad.

But they were wrong—very wrong!

From the time he moved in one month ago, Trump’s White House has been running like a finetuned machine (a doomsday machine, to be precise).

Nevertheless, his critics have sought to portray a White House in chaos, and argued that Trump is a racist antiSemite who is mentally unfit to serve—despite the fact that he won 306 electoral votes (actually, it was 304).

Bolstered by FAKE NEWS, illegal leaks, and Mar-a-Lago members’ Facebook postings, these enemies of freedom have tried and failed to delegitimize Trump at nearly every opportunity.

But, soon enough, they will learnone way or another—that the president’s authority will not be questioned.

Elsewhere…

Piers Morgan and J.K. Rowling feuded over Trump’s Muslim ban.

It all started on Feb. 10 when Morgan was berated by comedian Jim Jeffries on an episode of “Real Time with Bill Maher.” Morgan insisted that Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration was not in fact a “Muslim ban.” Jeffries immediately told him to “f*** off” and compared Trump’s actions to the early behaviors demonstrated by Adolf Hitler.

Morgan rebutted the jab by bashing Rowling’s work:

“This is why I’ve never read a single word of Harry Potter.”

The two continued to exchange harsh insults of one another in a series of tweets. But even when the tweets subsided, it wasn’t quite over. On Monday Morgan appeared on “Fox News Tonight” and he told host Tucker Carlson that Rowling is a “serial loser.”

Meanwhile…

Morgan’s son, Spencer, sided against his father.

Spencer, a diehard Harry Potter fan, appears to be trolling his own father. He shared a photo of himself brandishing his tattoo and necklace of the deathly hallows symbol. The emblem of course comes from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the seventh and final book of Rowling’s series.

The tweet, which got over 6,000 likes and nearly 2,000 retweets, is not the only proof of his fixation with Harry Potter.

Several months ago Spencer, who is a Mail Online sports journalist, shared a photo of himself in a deathly hallows t-shirt on Instagram outside the Palace Theatre in London which is showing Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a two-part West End stage play.

Spencer, who is the oldest of Morgan’s three children, shared a photo of himself strewn across a tattoo parlour getting the Deathly Hallow tattoo a month or so earlier.

And, speaking of awkward…

President Trump continued to humiliate New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

The Republican governor said while guest hosting a New York sports talk radio show Thursday that Trump pointed out the menu and told people to get whatever they want. Then he said he and Christie were going to have the meatloaf.

“This is what it’s like to be with Trump,” Christie said. “He says, ‘There’s the menu, you guys order whatever you want.’ And then he says, ‘Chris, you and I are going to have the meatloaf.'”

Trump said “I’m telling you, the meatloaf is fabulous,” according to Christie.

Mmm… authoritarianism!
