The 2024 Presidential Election is getting really ugly and nowhere is that more evident than in Donald Trump's new Truth Social post, showing Joe Biden hogtied and restrained in the back of a pickup truck.

The horrific, albeit fake image of the current prez and Democratic presidential nominee was part of a 20-second clip posted Friday to Trump's account on Truth Social -- the platform founded by Trump himself.

The truck labeled "Trump 2024" was rolling down a highway with American flags attached to it and a license plate that read, "Trump4US." Pictured on the back is a photoshopped image of Biden hogtied, made to look like he was in the bed of the truck.

He said the video was taken Thursday ... the same day Trump -- the Republican presidential nominee -- was back in his home state of New York to attend the wake of fallen NYPD Officer Jonathan Diller on Long Island.

That same day, Biden attended a fundraiser with former presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton at Manhattan's Radio City Music Hall -- which was met with protesters, both outside the venue and inside.

A rep for Biden's campaign, Michael Tyler, blasted the Trump video, calling it similar to other dangerous rhetoric he has used such as "Bloodbath" and telling the far-right militant group, Proud Boys, to "stand back and stand by." Tyler added that Trump regularly incites violence like what we saw on January 6.

Trump campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung had a different take, blaming the Democrats for weaponizing the justice system against Trump. Of course, Cheung was referring to all the pending criminal indictments with the 45th President named as a defendant.

Does a personally secure, confident person and Presidential Candidate do that?

This is a tell of Trump's chicken-shit desperation.

Oh, and for all of you moronic Trumpers, the difference between this and Biden's silly remark about taking Trump out back behind the school yard and beating the shit out of him is that Biden said he'd do that himself.

That's unlike what Trump does- he outsources his non-existent "courage" to his flying monkeys.

The only thing Trump takes on is a golf-ball sitting on a tee, and even for that he has to take several Mulligans because the damn golf ball doesn't even respect him.

If Obama had been behind an armed insurrection like 1/6/21, he, his wife, two daughters, mother-in-law, maids and nannies would all have been rounded up and shot and buried in an unmarked grave with 48 hours of being arrested, just like Tsar Nicholas.

But to Trumpers White, Male Privilege is a myth, even though Trump is the very personification of it.

And especially in the documents case, Trump has received far, far more deference than Americans sitting in federal prison now who were convicted of, or pleaded to, federal crimes related to the possession of classified materials.

Do you think they got a DOJ/FBI polite, restrained :

"Sir, will you please arrange a time when we can pick up those documents? tick tock.....tick tock....tick tock..."Sir, you haven't made arrangements for us to retrieve the documents, unfortunately, we'll have to consider a subpeona, but if you'll just allow us to come there we won't have to issue one...tick-tock...tick-tock...tick-tock... Subpoena Delivered ...tick-tock....tick-tock... tick-tock... (all while his henchmen are hiding them).

FINALLY, a God-damn search warrant was granted and executed.

[quote] Getting? The ugliness started in 2016 when Trump mimed that disabled reported and it's been one nadir after another since.

The miming of the disabled report was awful. In college, I had on-campus job during my freshman and sophomore years as a note-taker for disabled students. I was also a social work major and I got involved with disability awareness and non-profit organizations because I did like working with disabled students. I also worked in case management for a home healthcare agency that worked with elderly and disabled people for seven years (2007-2014) . Even though I have met some amazing people through those organizations and my past job, I also sadly learned that some disabled people can have their own ugly beliefs such as homophobia, sexism, racism, or prejudice against people who aren't Christian or are atheists or agnostics.

I'm still involved with a few non-profit organizations that aid people with disabilities by doing volunteer grant writing, consulting on home care services, and other projects/services. After the Trump miming/making fun of the disabled reporter incident in 2016, I wasn't surprised that several disabled people or loved ones or spouses of disabled people who I was friends with kept on with their support of Trump on social media and in person. There was a woman (mother of a disabled son) who became a Trump supporter in 2015 and posted quite a bit about him on Facebook. She stopped posting on social media in 2016. In early 2017, she contacted me about helping her with grant writing. I met with her at a coffee shop the day after the inauguration and when we left I saw her driving off in her van with a Trump bumper sticker on the back.

It's almost like he's trying to not get elected POTUS. Like he's straddling a delicate balance between wanting those legal defense donations, and escaping having to actually become President- a job he never wanted. Of course if it looks like he's headed for prison, he'll choose the dreary White House prison over Federal prison.

If he wins he'll just contract the Presidency out to underlings again and go golfing. There's signs that he's trying to get the old gang back together (Bannon, Conway, Manafort, Pompeo, etc.) but no Jarvanka/Mnuchin this time.

Or maybe he already has a plan whom to turn over all the hard stuff to? The Xtian right is standing by.

The question is why hasn't Trump been arrested and placed in jail pending his trials given the gag orders and behavioral issues? Has law enforcement failed so miserably that we can't hold the most dangerous man in the country to account for his actions, deeds and words? Yes, he has free speech and can say whatever he wants, but as this imagery proves, that doesn't mean he isn't responsible for what he says and that includes re-tweets of offensive and illegal imagery (and it is clearly illegal as numerous legal scholars have said citing the specific law reference for the convenience of the judiciary).

The FBI used to investigate threats against the president. I guess a photo of being hogtied isnโ€™t a big enough threat.

ACTUAL threats. Beginning with George Washington there was not a single President who wasn't hanged in effigy and burned. It was shrugged off as free speech.

Then Obama becomes president and the Secret Service chased down and intimidates a guy who drew a cartoon.

Anybody else wondering rn what percentage of the Secret Service are downlow Trumpistas?

Such a lie R103. There were so many actual threats they had no time for such shenanigans.

For what it's worth, R104, there is a very popular twitter account called Angry Staffer who provides expert analysis on what is going on in DC (especially defense and foreign policy). During one of his recent AMA sessions he does every weekend someone asked about that and somewhat surprisingly he completely defended the integrity of the Secret Service writ large.

R106: that's good to hear. If Angry Staffer vouches for the integrity of the Secret Service that's good enough for me.

I'll not dismiss out-of-hand that most Secret Service agents are non-partisan professionals.

But my, what a Co-inky-dink when all of the January 6th SS texts were wiped clean, irretrievably deleted, because, over that exact time, some kind of cyber maintenance just happened to be scheduled which required cleaning out those texts.

R108 I:m sure some of the Secret Service surrounding Trump were MAGA and erased the texts. The fact that they claim it was scheduled maintanance is bullshit because there is a mandated archival period for which they have to be maintained. Texts long before and after exist.
