The Morning Briefing: The Dem ‘Convicted Felon’ Eunuch Chorus Isn’t Gaining an Audience

Top O’ the Briefing

Happy Thursday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. Vanzerkanch was adamant in his belief that people who wore fedoras were pompous and should not be welcomed at the weekly “Jim Nabors Trivia Throwdown.”

On the latest episode of our award-winning (we bought each other drinks in Brooklyn last month) podcast “Unwoke,” I told my friend Kevin Downey Jr. that I might spend an hour seeing how many “convicted felon” mentions I could find in mainstream and social media. Thursday is my busiest day of the week but I may still give that a whirl and write about it. 

Ever since former President Donald Trump was handed a kajillion bogus felony convictions for the equivalent of a handful of parking tickets, his haters have been squawking “Convicted felon!” like short bus parrots. The insane repetition of the phrase is obviously intended to cause damage to Trump’s reputation and election chances.

Yeah, about that. 

This is from a post that Matt wrote yesterday

And now, a new I&I/TIPP Poll finds that the verdict “seems to have actually helped Trump.”

In a matchup between Biden and Trump, the new poll shows both candidates in a statistical tie at 41%. This marks a notable uptick for Trump since the previous month’s I&I/TIPP poll when he trailed Biden by a slim two-percentage-point margin (42% for Biden versus 40% for Trump). It’s a statistical showdown with a margin of error of +/- 2.5 percentage points.  

The poll also found that Trump is still handily beating Biden among independents, 38% to 26%.

That last line has to feel like a dagger to all of the lawless participants in the Trump frame job. They were really hoping that the optics of their Soviet show trial would make independent voters flee Trump in droves. Surely if that were going to happen, it would have been reflected in early post-verdict polling. There have yet to be any polls since last Thursday where that’s the case. In fact, very few of them have moved at all.

The Democrats may think that Donald Trump is an icky convicted felon, but that isn’t making them run away from his ideas or policies. 

I wrote on Monday about the curious positioning of two articles at the top of The New York Times homepage. The announcement of Biden’s asylum executive order was right above a story about Trump’s “hard line” on immigration polling well. The Biden story even admitted that some of what he was doing was similar to Trump’s policies. 

Biden’s far-left flank agrees and is not amused. 

This is from Rick

Many progressive Democrats are angry at Joe Biden’s executive order limiting asylum claims. The reason they hate it is because Donald Trump tried to do the same things.

“I think it’s really disappointing,” Congressional Progressive Caucus Chair Pramila Jayapal told Semafor. “[It] just plays into the idea that somehow harsh enforcement is going to work. That was Trump’s approach. We should be showing what the difference is.”

The difference, Congresscommie Jaypal, is that your approach doesn’t work, hence the Trumpward shift. The reason it’s polling well for Trump is that the beleaguered public knows that he has the will to at least attempt to clean up Biden’s mess.

It is fun with the Dems are eating their own, though.

Kevin mentioned in a post yesterday that New York Governor Kathy Hochul decided to delay New York City’s traffic “congestion tax” until after the election. Here’s the first paragraph of The New York Times article about that:

Gov. Kathy Hochul announced on Wednesday that she would indefinitely halt New York’s congestion pricing plan, a last-minute move that infuriated the plan’s supporters and put her in league with unlikely allies, including former President Donald J. Trump.

I guess it isn’t prudent to toss in “convicted felon” when mentioning that a prominent Democrat is in sync with Trump. 

Forget making the voters move away from Trump, the Democrats can’t even distance themselves from him. 

The Dems can continue to shout “Convicted felon!” from the rooftops but all that they are managing to do is to ensure that the people who already weren’t voting for Trump are going to super duper double-secret probation not vote for him now. 

Which is really all that they’ve ever accomplished with this insidious nonsense.
