Over the target–
The fake news specialists at The Daily Beast published a slanderous hit piece on The Gateway Pundit, Donald Trump and the stolen 2020 election.
They must be VERY WORRIED about the forensic audits.
Since November 3rd The Gateway Pundit has devoted significant time and thousands of reports on the stolen 2020 election.
Today over two-thirds of Republican voters still believe the 2020 election was stolen — because it was.
And Democrats are worried.
On Wednesday The Daily Beast published their latest hit piece on The Gateway Pundit. The Beast has confirmation that President Trump was reading our reports following the election. This infuriates them. So today they smeared the hell out of The Gateway Pundit with lies, smears and innuendos.
According to contemporaneous Justice Department notes taken during the end of Donald Trump’s time in office, the then-president directly and repeatedly berated his top federal law enforcers to back his election-fraud lies. But when they wouldn’t support his anti-democratic crusade, Trump resorted to accusing his senior DOJ officials of not being as extremely online as he was.
For starters, he was chastising them for not reading enough of The Gateway Pundit.
“You guys may not be following the internet the way I do,” then-President Trump told acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen and Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General Richard Donoghue during a Dec. 27 phone conversation, according to the recently released DOJ documents.
During Trump and Republicans’ months-long, and at times deadly, blitz to nullify President Joe Biden’s decisive victory in the 2020 election, the 45th U.S. president and his allies consumed and regurgitated a lot of garbage information and unhinged conspiracy theories from “the internet.” And one of the websites Trump was specifically citing was the ultra-right-wing and habitually wrong Gateway Pundit; the president was known to sometimes brandish printed pages of the website around the West Wing after the 2020 election.
The Gateway Pundit’s small role in Trump’s endeavor to weaponize the DOJ against the American electoral process underscores just how easily a discredited far-right media site established a pipeline to the decision-making of the then most powerful person on Earth. It also shows how this one website—founded by a guy repeatedly dubbed the “dumbest man on the internet”—managed to play a part in fueling the efforts that brought the country to the brink of democratic rupture.
According to a former senior Trump White House official and another person with direct knowledge of the matter, during the final weeks of his presidency, administration officials saw Trump on multiple occasions holding printed-out pages of Gateway Pundit articles in the White House, sometimes in the Oval Office. The former senior official recalled one instance when Trump handed them a page printed from the website, which nonsensically alleged massive pro-Biden fraud, and told the official to find out more and to do something about it.
“I didn’t really do anything about it,” the ex-official told The Daily Beast. “I think I threw it out. Maybe I recycled it.”
The Daily Beast continues to lob insults and post debunked smears against The Gateway Pundit in this latest hit piece.
They must really be worried about what is coming.
