No one said Trump had a stroke!

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 2020

Except for the people who did:
Don Winslow writes crime and mystery novels.

Ten years ago, the New York Times' Janet Maslin said he was pretty darn good:
MASLIN (7/7/10): “Don Winslow is an author currently living in the United States, most recognized for his crime and mystery novels.” That’s the one-sentence entirety of the biographical notice Mr. Winslow has attracted on Wikipedia, though he has a dozen novels, a couple of movie deals, a slew of ardent reviews, a whip-cracking way with words and a whole lot of Southern California surfer baditude to his credit.

Those earlier books (11 published here, one available in England with no set American publication date) have much sparkle to recommend them. But they aren’t “Savages,” the one that will jolt Mr. Winslow into a different league. “Savages” is his 13th and most boisterously stylish crime book, his gutsiest and most startling bid for attention.

It’s clear that “Savages” has no dearth of nerve from the snow-white, one-page opening chapter, which consists of exactly two words...As opening gambits go, this one is pure kamikaze, and it could have backfired accordingly. But Mr. Winslow has written the killer book to back it up.
It sounds like Winslow's no slouch. In recent years, he's also become a bit of an anti-Trump force.

Back on August 1, he's the one who tweeted the claim that Donald J. Trump has suffered a series of mini-strokes. This is what he said:
WINSLOW (8/1/20): One of the benefits of making videos that garner 5 million+ views is that you hear from a lot of people, including whistleblowers inside Trump administration.

I've received three communications saying that during his term Trump has suffered a "series" of "mini-strokes."
Winslow included a chunk of tape in which Trump was slurring his words.

Has the commander-in-chief suffered a series of mini-strokes? It's certainly a possibility, but we can't really answer your question.

At any rate, according to Reuters and U.S. News, Trump may have been responding to Winslow's claim when he tweeted, yesterday, that he hasn't suffered a series of mini-strokes.

Early last evening, the New York Times published a version of the same Reuters report, making the connection to Winslow. For the record, here's what the commander said:
COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF DONALD J. TRUMP (9/1/20): It never ends! Now they are trying to say that your favorite President, me, went to Walter Reed Medical Center, having suffered a series of mini-strokes. Never happened to THIS candidate—FAKE NEWS. Perhaps they are referring to another candidate from another Party!
Fox News also made the connection to Winslow. According to this report, "#TrumpStroke was trending on Twitter on Tuesday as Winslow's tweet got renewed attention." That renewed attention would have been created by discussion of a claim made in Michael Schmidt's new book, which makes no specific reference to strokes or mini-strokes.

Why did the commander say that "they" are now trying to say that he suffered a series of mini-strokes? We can't tell you that. But last night, Rachel and Lawrence happily told us that no one had ever said that Trump suffered strokes or mini-strokes.

The pair of pleasing cable stars assured us that Trump had made his latest blunder—that he had responded to a claim no one had actually made. Rachel specifically said that no one had said anything about a stroke.

We'll be perfectly honest. As experienced cable viewers, we saw no obvious reason to believe the presentations being made by these crowd-pleasing "cable news" stars.

It's true that Schmidt's new book makes no reference to strokes or mini-strokes—but sure enough! On Monday night, Joe Lockhart had made such a reference, craftily tweeting this:
LOCKHART (8/31/20): Did @realDonaldTrump have a stroke which he is hiding from the American public?
Playing one of Trump's favorite games, Lockhart later said he'd just been asking a question when he composed that tweet.

We watched Rachel and Lawrence as they happily clowned last night. They pleasured us with the pleasing idea that Trump had responded to a claim no one had actually made.

It's true that Schmidt made no such claim, but Lockhart had floated the idea of a stroke and Winslow had alleged a "series of mini-strokes."

There's no way Rachel and Lawrence, or at least their staffs, didn't know those things by showtime—but as experienced as corporate entertainers, they knew they mustn't tell. It was more fun to say that Trump had denied an allegation no one had ever alleged.

We'd like to link you to the transcripts and show you the pair's exact quotes. For better or worse, the corporation no longer offers transcripts, and we don't want to waste our own time transcribing their pleasing remarks.

MSNBC stopped transcribing its TV shows on Monday, July 13. In fairness, if we were paying millions of dollars to major cable stars like these, we wouldn't transcribe their shows either.

Winslow's wiki today: According to Maslin, Winslow rated one sentence on Wikipedia back in 2010.

Today, his entry is more extensive. You can peruse it here.

According to Winslow, Trump has suffered a "series of mini-strokes." Yesterday, he repeated that earlier claim.

As with almost everything else, there is absolutely no doubt that it could be true.

    But I thought you quit watching the Rachel dembot, dear Bob? And sworn not to watch her clowning ever again.

    I can understand an addiction to alcohol or sugar. Even computer games. But addiction to a totally repulsive, nauseating dembot?

    Now, that's Crazy, dear Bob.

    1. I can understand addiction to.

      Some guys are addicted to being a cum guzzling nazi internet troll and some guys are addicted to watching pool boys fuck their wife.

      And Jesus and morality! I'm addicted to that too!

  2. Press has been going on and on about this soup thing, but if you watch the first Rittenhouse video Rosenbaum has a bag with something in it that he throws at Rittenhouse before they struggle and Rosenbaum gets shot. A full can of soup in a doubled up grocery bag would make a workable bludgeon.

    1. Rosenbaum didn't "get shot." Rittenhouse shot him.

      You have to hold onto the bag in order to use it as a bludgeon. When you throw it on the ground, it is littering.

      Delete
    2. You must have ESP or something to have seen their actual struggle. It's not visible in the video. And way to avoid the issue of a bag / soup can bludgeon. Just because Rosenbaum threw it doesn't mean that wasn't what it was.

      Delete
    3. Just because you and I weren't there doesn't mean no one was. There are first hand accounts of what happened.

    4. Rosenbaum's fellow rioters will be very credible witnesses, you betcha!

    5. More credible witnesses than cops, but I know what you mean.

  3. The question is whether Trump reads Winslow and would have seen what he said. Since there is no evidence that Trump reads anything, how would he have seen Winslow's suggestion about the mini-strokes (which is a pretty obvious observation if you have been watching Trump over time)?

    Somerby likes to blame Rachel for things, but this is another thin reed to hang a complaint on. I think Trump probably did have some mini-strokes, since it would be consistent with his obvious health issues and age. The larger issue, of course, is his dishonesty about his health and the fact that we would never know what was wrong with him since he lies and covers up everything.

    1. He's pretty much a sack of shit but that doesn't mean the corporate media narrative won't get him re-elected.

    2. Rachel and Lawrence want to know why Trump actually made that surprise trip to Walter Reed. They aren’t buying the official “explanation.”

      Fox News is covering for the president by providing phony justification for his deranged tweet denying mini-strokes, saying it was a response to some guy on Twitter, as if that explains it. It is a moving of the goalposts.

      But sure, it’s the “corporate media’s” fault.

  4. Here is what Maddow said:
    “The president then got his doctor at the White House to release a statement repeating the same thing, that he had never had a mini stroke or stroke. Nobody reported it. Michael Schmidt did not report that in his book, no media outlet reported that. The White House didn’t give any further details.”

    She says no one reported it, and that is true. Winslow is not a reporter. He was just speculating via Twitter a month ago.

    Rather than address the important issue of the president’s health and the secrecy and obfuscation surrounding Trump’s visit to Walter Reed, Somerby shares Fox News’ attempt to redirect the conversation away from that to another “see how bad the liberals are.”

    Schmidt’s book apparently prompted that tweet from Trump, so says the Reuters story. But Trump responded by replying to one specific month-old tweet from a non-media person speculating about mini-strokes? Of course, we still don’t know the real reason for the visit to Walter Reed.

    Fox is covering for Trump’s lies and for his mental deficiencies.

  7. Trump's denial of having mini-strokes reminds me of when he said he wasn't Putin's puppet.

  8. Bob
    You claim to be from the progressive tribe
    This gives you cover when you call out ANY imagined slight by semi left wing media personalities.
    I believed you for years that your sthick was directed at only left wingers because you actually cared that they always tell the truth least they be targets for conservative propaganda outfits like Fox and company.
    Now I see that you are totally full of shit.
    You really only go after semi lefties with any true conviction.
    Yes the msm is biased but not to the left but to the .01%
    You never ever discuss corporate ownership and editorial decisions that reflect their owner’s desire and how that translates to on air content.
    Face it bob you are a southie and you pull punches for their world view

    1. Which naturally brings us to the question : what incentivizes all this concern trolling? Is this blog a hobby or a vocation? A little transparency would be reassuring here. Clearly this much blogging isn’t paid for by those advertising for herpes treatment, larger penises or efforts to get one’s husband back.

  14. I promise to share this testimony all over the world once my boyfriend returns back to me, and today with all due respect I want to thank DR.ONIHA for bringing joy and happiness to my relationship and my family. I want to inform you all that there is a spell caster that is real and genuine. I never believed in any of these things until I lost my boyfriend, I required help until I found a great spell caster, And he cast a love spell for me, and he assured me that I will get my boyfriend back in two days after the spell has been cast. Three days later, my phone rang, and so shockingly, it was my boyfriend who has not called me for the past 6 years now, and made an apology for the heart break, and told me that he is ready to be my backbone till the rest of his life with me. DR.ONIHA released him to know how much I loved and wanted him. And opened his eyes to picture how much we have shared together. As I`m writing this testimony right now I`m the happiest girl on earth and me and my boyfriend are living a happy life and our love is now stronger than how it was even before our break up. So that`s why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe. All thanks goes to DR.ONIHA for the excessive work that he has done for me. Below is the email address in any situation you are undergoing, it may be a heart break, and I assure you that as he has done mine for me, he will definitely help you too.
