Trump’s Lack of Leadership Leads to Stupidity
Donald Trump went on Fox News Sunday night and told America that he expects as many as 100,000 deaths from COVID-19. Two vacuous so-called news people sat there, never asking the most important question. “If what you say is true, Mr. President, then why the hell are certain states opening right now?” The families of the next 40,000 people who die can blame the catastrophe on our feckless, reckless, mindless president. Trump has no idea what he is doing.
Trump’s despicable rhetoric always divides us. He tries to deny that he’s doing it and blames the press, Obama, W.H.O. or China, He continually promotes an irritating martyr-syndrome. He has never been the president for all of America, ever, and that is why his hate rubs off on all of us.
Trump complains about many things. He’s a tragically flawed and negative person. He says no president was treated worse than him. People on social media were quick to use sarcasm by reminding him that Lincoln, McKinley and Kennedy were treated much worse. In case you missed it, the common element between these three presidents is they were all assassinated. Trump has gotten billions of dollars of free TV time just by being a newsworthy asshole. He can criticize the press and media all he wants, but if they stopped covering him he would fold himself into a fetal position and die. I’m not sure where his big gut would go.
The more time we spend with Trump, the angrier we get, collectively. The red “Hitler hat” pro-Trumper thinks I’m anti-American and has a given right to the American story. We are all AMERICANS. Back off with your fucking Nazi signs.
What does Trump say to the lady who owns the small boutique who didn’t get the Small Business bailout check? She’s livid at the administration for a bad web site and mishandling of the money she needed to keep her business afloat. As she files for bankruptcy, she knows that only the big, the rich and the strong get the money. The liberals and never-trumpers are so over Donald Trump and his lies. Check out the internet and see how many people are getting more and more vocal and negative. Hate oozes off the web pages.
Pure animosity was on display last week with OPEN UP NOW protesters marching to state capitals with guns on their shoulders demanding the leaders stop the shutdown. Americans have the right to peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. No real America would ever suggest this be taken out of the Constitution, but is carrying a gun into a state house really a peaceful assemblage? It’s quite intimidating in my point of view and should not be allowed in a government building.
The protesters’ lack of regard for other people’s well-being is repulsive. Why are these fools without masks screaming in cops’ faces? I hope the protesters don’t get that wretched kind of “throwing up blood” COVID. OMG, that was so hateful! Who am I?
To add some loathing and foaming poison cream on the bowl of shit, some of those protesters were holding signs with symbols of hate like swastikas, white supremist troupes and Nazi slogans. My late father would be truly disheartened seeing people carrying these signs. He fought in France and Germany during WWII and witnessed the moral debauchery at the death camps with his own eyes.
One of the most disgusting signs had “Arbeit macht frei, JB” painted on it. The unidentified woman marched in Chicago and obviously the sign was aimed at the State Governor J.B. Pritzker, who happens to be Jewish. The German slogan means “work will set you free,” and was on the gates of the Nazi concentration camp in Auschwitz. It was a sick Nazi joke to suggest that those captured Jews who worked hard in the camp would be set free after the war. During the Holocaust, there were at least 1.1 million people murdered by the Nazis at Auschwitz.
The protestors’ signs were neither mentioned nor condemned by President Trump. As a matter of fact, Trump’s standard comeback is that he’s NOT anti-Semitic and uses another dissociative response of “how could he be when his daughter and son-in-law are Jewish.” He also keeps telling us that people displaying these appalling signs are “good people.” What is a logical person to think? Trump thinks neo-Nazis are good people. Hey, he said it.
I’ve been so angry at the President and his sycophants that my outrageous comments have gotten me banned by Twitter, but that is not the message here. It’s the realization that Trump has made me that angry person. A good president would make an attempt to bring us together, but the bad one we have fails at this responsibility every day. I will never respect or forgive him because of the many ways he has hurt my fellow Americans. His irresponsible words are likely the cause of some American deaths. One could say that Trump’s words motivated people shooting and killing a dollar store security guard who asked people to wear a mask to shop.
Trump can blame China all he wants with his repetitive propaganda gimmicks, but deep down inside he knows his administration did far less than it should have during the early months of this pandemic. The way we know he believes this is because of his intense defensiveness when questioned. My mouth dropped to the floor when Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, said with a smile on his face, “The federal government rose to the challenge, and this is a great success story.” Now Trump is telling us that 100,000 people are projected to die. This piss poor administration doesn’t even put forth an effort to have consistent messages. Lazy bastards.
Imagine if LBJ had said that less than 100,000 causalities in Vietnam was “a great success story!” The loss of American lives is never a success story, Mr. Kushner. Vietnam was not a success and 100,000 coronavirus deaths will never be a success. May I remind the reader here that in 1923 Jared’s grandmother, Rae Kushner, escaped the Nazi occupation in Poland through a tunnel with her father and sister. They lived in the woods for nine months before walking over many borders and landing in a refugee camp in Italy. With all this in his family history, one might think Jared would be able to marshal some empathy. Has he forgotten the maxim, “We must never forget?” Kushner is loyal only to money, Trump and nothing else. Sorry, Ivanka.
The hate has gone viral and Trump has gained the ultimate dark result. For some he is the international villain that he’s secretly always wanted to be. For the rest of the world, he’s the laughingstock. Then there are some people who just hate him for Trump being Trump.
The Donald, according to his first wife, used to read Hitler’s speeches before bed, which might explain his actions and words. He’s speaks racist, xenophobic, anti-Semitic statements without even realizing it. The association he has made about Jews and money alone would’ve gotten him thrown out of the temple, like a money changer. Trump makes people stupid.
We’ve all got to get beyond this and put someone we can trust into the White House. If Trump is reelected, America will go into a cold dark winter with the poor getting poorer, the rich getting richer and the country we all love being doomed to third world status. We must REMOVE TRUMP, not because we hate him but because everything he touches turns to shit.
If you read this book, you can see why all this happened to us.
The book that tells it like it is…
Gold, God, Guns & Goofballs shows how we’ve wasted our GOLD on bad wars and corruption. While GOD is there for many people as a spiritual enrichment and the provider of glowing feelings, the truth is just praying and believing will not change our major arc. We don’t determine who gets a GUN. We aren’t sure if we have paramilitary groups ready to storm the White House or a White Castle. There is no control of weapons. The GOOFBALLS with the power constantly try to manipulate us into spending more money on bombs and tanks and wars. When all of our institutions are infected with neglect and fall in disrepair, we will only have ourselves to blame. This book is not an antidote for the left or right, it’s an accelerant to move the middle off their collective asses to go do something positive for America.
