TRUTH:

I’VE BEEN WRITING ABOUT SECRET SERVICE DYSFUNCTION SINCE THE EARLY BUSH ADMINISTRATION:

BIDEN’S BULLSEYE FOR TRUMP: Issues & Insights (I&I) points out that President Joe Biden on July 8 said he was done talking about the debate and observed that “It’s time to put Trump in the bullseye.” That kind of rhetoric prompts radical nutcases to do things like shooting at former President Donald Trump, so does Biden bear some degree of accountability for the day’s tragic events?

OUT ON A LIMB: Democrats must ditch unhinged alarmism after Trump assassination attempt.

President Joe Biden condemned the attempt on former President Donald Trump’s life in no uncertain terms on Saturday night. He deserves credit for doing this bare moral minimum, but now Democratic officials and their liberal media allies must stop with their constant alarmism and doomsday exaggerations before our culture war gets even more out of control.

After all, just days ago, the official “Biden HQ” social media accounts shared a screenshot from The Handmaid’s Tale, a dystopian television series where women are forced into sex slavery, and absurdly suggested that this is the fate awaiting America under a second Trump term. So, too, Biden has repeatedly said that Trump represents an existential threat to democracy and also that Trump would be a “dictator” if elected again, twisting a comment the former president clearly said as a joke.

We’ve seen even more extreme rhetoric from left-leaning media outlets. MSNBC anchor Nicole Wallace suggested, with no basis, that if Trump wins, her show will be taken off air and we’ll see an end to a free press in America. Another MSNBC anchor, Joy Reid, recently described a second Trump term as “Hitler in the White House.” The New Republic even recently published a cover story styling Trump as Hitler.

EXTREMELY GRAPHIC LEAKED PHOTO OF ALLEGED SHOOTER. It’s here. (Assuming it’s real and not AI or something.) I recoiled from it when my wife sent me the link, so you have been warned. He’s… not in good enough shape for ID by anyone who doesn’t know him, I think, so you’re not missing anything by not clicking. But it’s certainly newsworthy.

BIDEN ON MONDAY: “It’s time to put Trump in the bullseye.”

The Biden-Harris campaign is on a post-debate blitz, meanwhile, in an apparent effort to quell the distress.

A memo the campaign sent to Hill offices obtained by Scripps News highlights President Biden’s energetic campaign rallies, swing state polling and grassroots support.

The president joined a call with the Biden Victory Fund National Finance Committee, where the campaign says he told supporters, “It’s time to put Trump in the bullseye,” framing his strategy for the next debate as “Attack. Attack. Attack. Attack.”

UPDATE (11:11 pm): ‘Hitler Pig.’

As former President DONALD TRUMP’s trial opened Monday in New York City, NYT’s MAGGIE HABERMAN posted an update from the courtroom: “Trump appears to be sleeping. His head keeps dropping down and his mouth goes slack.”

The post, which immediately went viral on X and was almost instantly the talk of cable news panels, shot around Biden world in emails and text messages between White House, campaign aides and other Democrats close to the administration.

“Hitler Pig sleepy,” one individual said on one thread as a caption to Haberman’s post.

You read that right: “Hitler Pig.”

That moniker, four people in Biden’s orbit told West Wing Playbook, is one that aides to and allies of the president — generally younger, more digitally native individuals, not senior staffers, one person clarified — frequently use to describe Trump.

AND DEMOCRATS ARE ALWAYS TELLING US HOW THAT SORT OF RHETORIC INCITES VIOLENCE, SO THEY MUST HAVE MEANT TO:

A FRIEND MESSAGES: “The fact that it was an ear graze should absolve to Clintons. When a woman wants someone dead. . . ”

To be fair, it’s hard to get good help these days, what with the labor shortage and all. Immigrants have a good work ethic and go for less, but their cheek weld is questionable.

MARTIN HACKWORTH: We all just dodged a bullet. “Trump wasn’t the only person in America to dodge a bullet this afternoon. He was one of about 350 million of us. Had the attempt to assassinate Trump succeeded, I’m confident that there’d be gunfire in cities around the nation tonight. Including, possibly, my small mountain town in the northern Rockies. That’s how close we are to being out of control in 2024, America. . . . There are an awful lot of people in this country who think that they can go to bed every night, no matter what they do or how they conduct themselves, and wake up the next day in a relatively safe, free, and prosperous nation. That’s not so.”

This may be a case of God looking after fools, drunkards, and the United States of America.

Not sure if this is right, but it’s clear that if Trump hadn’t moved his head a few inches at the right time, he’d be dead now and we’d be in the deepest of deep shit.

UPDATE: Apparently real.

OPEN THREAD: Make it happen.
