At a time he was riding high politically in 2020, US President Donald Trump, unchallenged in the Republican Party and sole candidate for a second White House term, taunted Kamala Harris for dropping out of the Democratic nomination race, with a snarky “We’ll miss you!” tweet. “Don’t worry, Mr. President. I’ll see you at your trial,” Harris shot back.
Well, turns out the wheel of karma could stop exactly there.

From his presidential campaign to his four years at the White House, golf has been a prominent feature of Donald Trump‘s solitary presidential term. According to the Trump Golf Count website, the president has played golf at least 150 times since his inauguration despite claiming in August 2016 that he wouldn’t have “time to go play golf” if elected president. In November, Trump was on the green when he learned President-elect Joe Biden had won the presidential election.
More importantly, golf largely played the role of silent ally throughout Trump’s first term. Over the last four years, the NBA, MLB and even the NFL have all incurred the president’s wrath after distancing themselves, albeit to various degrees, from Trump, while golf largely kept its counsel.
That, however, changed dramatically on Sunday when the PGA of America entered the political arena and joined the ever-growing list of organizations, companies and even Republican politicians cutting ties with Trump for his role in the riots that saw thousands of his supporters storm the U.S. Capitol last week.
Presidential historian Michael Beschloss tells Andrea Mitchell that right now “we’ve got an irrational president who’s desperately trying to hold on to power. He’s facing enormous legal and financial problems if he leaves the presidency. Even if it’s irrational, he’s going to try to do almost anything he can to hold onto the presidency even though we rational people know it’s impossible.”

More than 40,000 people have clicked on the link to “The Joe Biden I Know” – published in September 2015 and written by Ken Feltman.
That is not quite twice as many clicks or views as any other Radnor Report. Most of those clicks came last year during the political campaigns.

One unmissable face from photos of the U.S. Capitol riot is that of an odd-looking man donning a pair of large horns, fur, and claiming he was a paid actor at a Black Lives Matter protest.
The shirtless horned man was seen in many photos taken at the storming of the Capitol building, which saw windows smashed, pipe bombs planted, people killed and delayed Congress in certifying Joe Biden as the winner of the U.S. election.
In an attempt to shift the blame for the Capitol building breach, some supporters of President Trump spread an untrue conspiracy that the horned man is from the left-wing group Antifa.
The theory was quickly debunked as multiple outlets have reported the character to be a Pro-Trump 32-year-old named Jake Angeli.
Angeli is from Arizona and according to Arizona Central is a QAnon supporter who has been a fixture at Trump rallies and QAnon events for the past year.
QAnon supporters believe an untrue and baseless theory that a high-level government official is sending them clues about a paedophile ring made up of the worlds most influential celebrities and politicians.
Angeli often spends his days outside the Arizona Capitol screaming about a range of conspiracy theories relating to QAnon and other right-wing beliefs he holds.
