Appearing on MSNBC's "The Katie Phang Show," former GOP campaign consultant Tara Setmayer claimed the choice of Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) should come as no surprise due to his attitude toward women's rights.Speaking with the host, Setmayer pinned the label "mega MAGA misogynist" before documenting the Ohio Republican's history and what could happen if the Trump team wins in November.According to both the host and Setmayer, the GOP convention was a decidedly anti-woman affair.Pointingto the choice of Vance as a running mate, Setmayer stated, "This is the direction they are going in."RELATED: Trump now bleeding support in GOP-dominated state as more women voters gravitate to Biden "It's a a big 'FU' to women whose rights are literally under assault," she continued. "This election is about life or death for women in America and the attacks on our freedom."For her part, host Phang once again noted that the Trump campaign, with the selection of Vance" is treating American voters as if they are dumb, a point she took up earlier on MSNBC's "The Weekend."Watch below or at the link.

Taking to both TikTok and Instagram, Donald Trump's niece, psychologist Mary Trump, took some shots at MSNBC host Katy Tur for her commentary during the recently concluded Republican National Convention where she told viewers that she felt the former president appeared to be humbled after an assassination attempt one week ago.Tur, a frequent target on social media for what is considered to be her glossing over Trump's copious issues, this week told viewers she was seeing a Trump she had never seen before, telling co-host Chris Jansing, that the former president looked "serene" at the convention.According to Mary Trump, MSNBC viewers should be skeptical of Tur's observations about her uncle."Despite having no evidence for making this claim, Katy Tur of MSNBC said during Donald Trump's first appearance at the Republican convention, that he was humbled," Mary Trump observed.ALSO READ: How much access did $50,000 buy someone at the Republican National Convention?"Okay," she continued. "First of all, this is non-journalism, this is evidence-free supposition. Second, considering the man doesn't have an ounce of humility in his entire body, that is a bit of stretch — seriously.""I mean there is no circumstance under which this man has ever felt humility or been humbled," the ex-president's niece continued before showing a picture of a smirking Trump in his convention box. "That is the look of a man who is completely and pleasantly shocked he keeps getting away with everything," she pointed out.You can watch the video below which was also posted to X or at the link: — (@)

A multi-millionaire who was a key Donald Trump ally pushing election theft conspiracy rumors after the former president's 2020 loss is already laying the groundwork for 2024 chaos by providing financial support to groups pushing more fringe theories.According to a report from the Guardian's Peter Stone, former Overstock.com CEO Patrick Byrne is sinking millions into the Pro-MAGA America Project which is then being dispensed to groups in the key states of Arizona and Michigan among others.In a previous interview, Byrnes was upfront in admitting that only $3 million of the $30 million funding for America Project came from the public while he donated the other 90 percent.According to the Guardian's Stone, "The America Project was launched in April 2021 by Byrne and Michael Flynn, the former national security adviser to Donald Trump when he was president; both Byrne and Flynn have been vocal purveyors of falsehoods that Trump lost the 2020 election due to fraud. They were also both at a meeting with Trump and others in late 2020 to brainstorm ways to overturn his loss."ALSO READ: Trump now bleeding support in GOP-dominated state as more women voters gravitate to BidenThe report notes that tax records reveal the organization has "sent hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Arizona-based We the People AZ Alliance, and Michigan-based United States Election Investigation and Lawsuits Inc, triggering alarms by election watchdogs and some GOP veterans due to their incendiary election denialist stances and leaders."This has led Michael Beckel, research director at Issue One, to raise a red flag."At a time when people across the political spectrum should be standing up to defend the integrity of our safe and secure elections, election deniers have used the We the People AZ Alliance to further erode trust in elections," he warned.You can read more here.
