Jeb Bush is talking about the latest campaign maneuver in the crucial South Carolina primary: Bringing out his brother, former President George W. Bush, to record a new radio ad and to join him soon on the campaign trail.

“The question is, what do your rivals do — in particular, what does Trump do?” Megyn Kelly asked Jeb, during an interview on Fox News. “Because he’s already gone after our former president as, quote, ‘a disaster.’ Your thoughts?”

“Yeah, well, he’s gonna — he attacked my mother for campaigning for me,” Jeb said. “I mean, we’re reaching a point in our country where you can’t even have your mom show up to campaign for you in New Hampshire? It’s pretty funny, actually.

“Of course they’re gonna campaign for me — they love me, I love them. I’m proud of being a Bush, and I’m running with my record and running with detailed plans to fix people’s lives. And that’s what this campaign’s about. So if Donald Trump wants to go after my brother — man, I think that won’t be helpful.”

To be exact, Trump did not attack former First Lady Barbara Bush for for campaigning for her son Jeb. He actually attacked Jeb, declaring that the former GOP frontrunner “desperately needed mommy to help him,” and also said, “mom can’t help you with ISIS, the Chinese or with Putin.”

So yeah, let’s see what Donald Trump (and others) have to say about George W. Bush when he shows up in public for Jeb.

It’s not just the House Select Committee on January 6 that wants a better look at many of those involved in Donald Trump’s scheme to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Thanks to their wide-ranging activities in many states, investigations are going on at the local, state, and federal level into actions that Trump’s team took in attempting to reverse the will of the American people.

No state may have borne more of Trump’s focused fury than Georgia. President Joe Biden carried the state by over 12,500 votes, making it second to Arizona when it comes to the the narrowest margin of victory. This was far outside the realm of possible change that might be addressed by a recount, but Georgia conducted a recount anyway. When that didn’t make things any better for Trump, he requested that Georgia count a third time, which it did. Trump still lost, and by a bigger number than ever.

A Republican House candidate for a competitive seat in northwest Ohio said Monday that mass shootings are an acceptable price to pay for his right to own guns.

"I don't care if countries in Europe have less shootings because they don't have guns. I care about THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and OUR 2nd Amendment Rights," Republican J.R. Majewski tweeted Monday evening. "I think Americans stopped caring what Europe thought of our country in 1776."
