Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), a 2020 presidential candidate, took an unwarranted and unproven jab at President Donald J. Trump Friday, claiming that he has somehow mistreated transgender children.
“When President Trump demonizes transgender children it breaks my heart,” she said, “because I know a transgender boy in my school community and we watched him cut his hair short, we watched him dye his hair blue, we watched him change his name, we watched him tell his parents he wanted to identify as a boy.”
To be perfectly clear, there is zero evidence that Trump has ever “demonized” any transgender child. Gillibrand made that up to pander to her audience.
“That young man is the exact person who should not be demonized by the President of the United States,” she continued. “That young man is a person who the President of the United States should protect. That young man is a vulnerable young adult. He needs our love, he needs our protection, he needs us to stand by him. And this President chooses to demonize him and any other transgender person by telling them what bathroom they can go in, when he looks at our service members who ware serving bravely, and sacrificing, and putting their lives on the line, telling them their service is not needed – a service he was unwilling to give – is an outrage.”
In this pat of the faux outrage, Gillibrand continued to lie (surprise!) and totally took the speech off the rails. There is no federal law about bathroom access. That has been left to the states to decide, as it should be. The federal government has no business regulating where people do their business.
As for the the dig at Trump’s lack of military service, this reporter doesn’t remember Gillibrand suiting up in camouflage and fighting any wars for corporate America. Chalk that up to female privilege.
“So that’s one of the reasons I’m running against President Trump,” she finished. “I’m so angry that he has divided this country, demonized so many people, divided us on every racial line, religious line, socioeconomic line, harming the fabric of our soul. He’s literally tearing the fabric of this country.”
Why do I get the feeling that the upcoming Democratic Primary race is going to involve each candidate trying to prove that he or she is more hysterical than the last?

Trump Campaign Manager Brad Parscale’s Confidence Could Jeopardize Re-Election Chances
Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale is getting criticized harder than ever after the rally fiasco in Tulsa, Okla. on Saturday.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has bragged about far-left activists using TikTok to trick the campaign into bragging about an inflated number of ticket requests for the rally, which drew considerably less than capacity.
She clowned Parscale in a Twitter post on Saturday:
KPop allies, we see and appreciate your contributions in the fight for justice too 😌
— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) June 21, 2020
While Ocasio-Cortez wants to brag about TikTok youngsters sabotaging the rally, it was really Parscale’s own incompetence that resulted in the embarrassment.
He bragged about the number of sign-ups without seemingly ever verifying their authenticity:

There will be precautions for the heat and bottled water as well.

This makes Parscale’s notion of a ultra-effective “death star” driving the Trump re-election operation seem all the more laughable:
For nearly three years we have been building a juggernaut campaign (Death Star). It is firing on all cylinders. Data, Digital, TV, Political, Surrogates, Coalitions, etc.

“I think people liked the myth that teenagers could take down the Trump Death Star, but I would not be surprised that the Trump campaign was seeing those numbers and decided they didn’t need to do follow-up calls because their numbers were so good,” veteran digital staffer Melissa Ryan said about Parscale’s rally snafu.
“If you’re doing campaign data, you should be able to realize when your system is getting gamed. If you’re getting a flood of signups, if your first instinct is to announce it on Twitter rather than check the tires, that’s just incompetence,” Ryan added.
All sides of the Trump movement are apparently getting fed up with Parscale’s incompetence as well. Former Trump 2016 campaign manager Corey Lewandowski spoke out publicly about comedy of errors that were made due to Parscale’s woeful stewardship of the campaign.
“I think a fundamental mistake was made,” Lewandowski said. “Overpromising and underdelivering is the biggest mistake you can make in politics.”
“I lived this as you know, I did this when candidate Trump was running. We won 38 primaries and caucuses under my stewardship, obviously all due to Donald Trump, but we never did something like this,” he continued, referring to the 2016 campaign when he was at the helm.
“And what that means is we have to go back and re-evaluate the system in which people were getting those tickets and determining if they were real, if they were robots, and putting additional protocols in place so this doesn’t happen again,” Lewandowski added.
Even Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, the power couple known as “Javanka,” are angry at Parscale over his failures. Javanka has been close with Parscale, backing up his rise within the Trump White House, since before the 2016 campaign when Parscale was a website builder for Trump with zero political experience.
“Jared and Ivanka are pissed at Brad over promising on crowd size,” a campaign source close to Javanka reportedly said following the rally.
Big League Politics has been reporting on Parscale’s management for months now:
Some of President Donald Trump’s top confidants are urging for campaign manager Brad Parscale to be fired and replaced with someone deemed by observers as more competent and qualified heading into this year’s election against former Vice President Joe Biden.
“People within his inner circle continue to question Brad’s ability to bring the campaign down the home stretch because of his inexperience,” a longtime adviser to the president told the New York Post.
“There’s no strategy, there’s no messaging,” the adviser added.
A Republican insider noted that Parscale was put into the position because of his connections to Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, who has been pushing the administration to the Left throughout his tenure as senior adviser. Parscale has even brought disgraced Bush-era globalist Karl Rove into the fold.
“Jared put Brad in charge of the whole thing because he is loyal to the family — not because he is a political operator,” the GOP insider said. “Brad has zero experience running a national campaign.”
Parscale has been cashing in, living a lavish lifestyle while Trump’s re-election campaign spins its wheels.
“The money stuff rankles people in a major way,” a long-time GOP campaigner told the Post, referencing Parscale’s $2.4 million mansion on a Fort Lauderdale, Fla beachfront, his new $400,000 yacht, and a stable of luxury automobiles.
