DEATH WISH DONNIE

Demented Man Behind the Curtain

Donald John Trump is an endangered species. If we were watching a TV show, this villain would escape from the prison/hospital to infect the populace and create a zombie apocalypse. You know, that’s not far afield from where we are now.  Trump is doing everything he can to hurt people, and it’s astounding that old-line Republicans are looking the other way. They are complicit and have lost all control of their dark, dumb, spellbinding cult leader.

I tried to muster some sympathy for the orange pumpkin, but his words and actions have more than angered me. I get it. He’s a showman with all available gray matter directed at his next stunt. This pompous desire for publicity comes at any cost, even his own life. It’s almost as if he has a death wish, but there’s a bigger problem. He’s willing to kill you to get want he wants. I have zero sympathy for this derelict, damaged man.

Here is an idea to consider after all this is said and done. The doctors who attend to the President’s health should NOT be part of the military. That’s patently unamerican. They are under his command and, in this case, are obviously being manipulated for political gain. Shameful.

Now we learn that the White House disagrees with the CDC guidelines and will not permit them to do their job with contract tracing of those who attended recent political events that turned out to be super spreaders. The West Wing is riddled with positive COVID-19 cases, and Trump has decided to go back into his den of disease, mask-less. There are those political figures who repeat, “Nothing to worry about, I’ve been tested.” Getting tested doesn’t mean you are immune; it just indicates that you are negative AT THAT MOMENT. Constant testing does not protect a person. These people are more than idiots; they are putting themselves in harm’s way. Do they, too, have a death wish?

One of the things Donald Trump repeated to famed reporter Bob Woodward is that he wants to play the virus down which, in a sense, is a denial device. Every now and again we all use that trick to fool ourselves. When I see a young person smoking a cigarette, I often toss a snarky remark like, “You know, those things can kill you?” The person usually looks up and says, “I know. I’ve been trying to quit.” It’s immoral using lies to numb citizens to a threat against their health and life. I don’t care about Donald Trump. I just want to reduce unnecessary death in my country.

I don’t want Donald Trump’s opinions on anything. I wouldn’t let him handle my money, I wouldn’t permit him anywhere near my family and I certainly wouldn’t trust him with my health and life. For him to portray himself as an expert on anything, other than being a Trump, is pure fantasy. I have never liked him, respected him, trusted him nor wanted him anywhere near the leadership of this country. From his first day in office, he has demonstrated his lack of concern with the commonwealth and common good of our people. He’s a fool, an ass, a halfwit, a nincompoop, a dunce, a dolt, an ignoramus, a moron, an imbecile, a dope, a dullard and a douche bag. You get the picture.

According to Donald’s first wife, Ivana, Trump studied Adolf Hitler’s speeches in bed at night. Maybe that can help explain his reluctance to putting down Neo-Nazis and white supremacists in this country. Trump admitted to Bob Woodward that he likes the tyrants more than the allies. Why? He couldn’t answer that.

In 1927, Donald Trump’s father was arrested after a Ku Klux Klan riot in Queens, New York. Newspaper articles list Fred Trump, of 175-24 Devonshire Road, as one of those arrested. According to the US Census, Fred C. Trump lived there with his mother. Was Donald’s father a devotee of the KKK or just an everyday Nazi sympathizer, or did he just happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time? There is evidence that Donald’s father was anti-Semitic, racist and pro-Nazi. Did his son acquire those biases?

Many of us have been in a car with a driver who had too much to drink. The first thing we try to do is get that person to allow someone else to drive. Typically, they are belligerent and difficult and cannot process warnings about dangers on the road ahead. Right now, we have a drooling drunk behind the wheel of the White House who is hopped up on steroids and other COVID meds and he’s not about to relinquish the wheel. Trump says he’s never used drugs, but his grand hospital escape proves that he shouldn’t be left alone with those drugs. He’s addicted to fame, and the steroids will only amplify that human flaw.

Many of the Donald’s supporters are walking away now. The stock market hates uncertainty, but I hate insanity, especially in a person when rules my life. Trump isn’t personally controlling me right now, but if he gets reelected there is no telling what he will do next. I am certain America can never maintain its greatness and regain health with Donald Trump in the White House. If I could push a button to remove him right now … ah, already pressed, didn’t work, yet.

The book that tells it like it is…

Gold, God, Guns & Goofballs: If you only read one chapter of this book, try “Take a Knee for America” and think about our never-ending conflicts between minorities and the police. I’m not asking you to take a stand but having a deep and honest conversation about why some people think the way they do would be productive. This is a book for the moment which seeks to start a conservation about peace. And if you are worried about social media, you really should check out the chapter called “Social Media Menace.”

THE TRUMP TRAVESTY

Desperate Dictator Disconnected & Down

Donald John Trump, the 45th President of the United States trusts only his ill-informed opinions and often fires a person as the solution to a problem. He’s not interested in loyalty; he craves only obedience. You follow or you will be fired. Here’s where we stand as another dreadfully mismanaged week is closing.

Between the Bolton book and now, the Mary Trump tome, I am learning that my overbearing belief that the Donald Trump is a truly wicked and deranged human being has not been harsh enough. I have nothing against the mentally ill, until one becomes a risk to life and limb. I had no reaction yesterday to the young man with Turrets syndrome sitting twenty feet away from me in the restaurant. The kid’s loud, verbal ticks made more sense than what the Donald has said this week.

Trump knows that Joe Biden is kicking his ass in the polls. Even though Trump poo-poos polls, he’s sees them as the love meter in his distorted and pathetic life. He doesn’t help anyone unless they help him first. May I throw a left hook here? Trump’s whiteness is neither real nor supreme. This orange make-up-monster is more fake than anything that has ever been written about him. He had to do something about Biden, but, as always, his choice was inept and inappropriate.

Donald Trump’s long and windy political speech, that was misrepresented as a serious press conference, fooled no one other than Fox News. Most of the networks covered only the few questions from the press, which characteristically were not answered. When replying to the question of a CBS reporter, Trump solidly stepped into the horse turds on the highway. He loudly defended the police brutality toward African Americans by stating that cops kill more white people than Black people and concluded by scolding the reporter for her “bad” question. This gives me no comfort. Was he saying the police are systemically violent? He next attempted to defend the displaying of the Confederate flag as good use of the First Amendment. Why does this man continually endorse our lawless leaders and symbols of the south while comparing himself to Abraham Lincoln?

Trump’s move to have all state health departments report directly to the White House instead of the CDC makes no sense. It is simply a way for Trump to control the bad news. DeSantis in Florida and Kemp in Georgia tried the same thing, but they were caught. Neither will be reelected. Trump is a criminal and uses the tactics of dictators, tyrants and autocrats. He’s trying to pull the wool over our eyes instead of asking us to put masks over our faces.

Now we hear that Russia is trying to hack into the institutions doing COVID-19 vaccine research. If the President doesn’t increase sanctions and directly confront Putin, I will be more convinced than ever that Trump is a traitor. He’s had four years to put Putin in his place and has repeatedly failed to lead.

I don’t give a rat’s ass about Brad Parscale, the recently demoted Trump Campaign Manager. He got caught in the Donald’s Catch-22 that if you are too close to a bad situation then under the bus you go. Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump keep luring the big man into bad choices, people and ideas but somehow, they are never responsible for any following failure. It wasn’t Parscale’s fault that the Tulsa rally wasn’t packed to the rafters; it was Trump’s fault. He should never have asked his loyal subjects to come to a coronavirus petri dish. The people were smart enough to stay away, but Trump’s need for love cannot make things just go away. This disillusioned sociopath really believes the lack of attendance was Parscale’s blunder. Those who are liable must be punished!

The TikTok teenagers flooding the registration system fooled Parscale, but he should have known. Sometimes, people who pledge money never send the money. Similarly, some of Trump’s fans registered for the rally never intending to go to Tulsa for a risky event. I am enjoying what has been written in some back-alley websites. Allegedly, Mr. Brad has been making millions on the side using his personal Facebook page to buy Trump ads. He’s coning the con man out of his money right before his eyes. I would love to see his tax returns, too.

Trump is depressed, and those around him are falling prey to the “abused child syndrome” and doing everything they can to make him feel better. Let’s never forget that close to 138,000 Americans have died and Trump’s Press Secretary stood before us to defend every Trump lie. Kayleigh McEnany is complicit. Mark Meadows is saying and doing things that are killing people. Let’s add in all the Republican dolts blindly supporting Trump. All of them should be held accountable, but not blamed. They are just idiots on Donald Trump’s big stage. It’s the playwright in the oval office who must be charged and defeated.

The real travesty of this President is carved in a cliché that we hear more and more, “None of this had to happen.” The ostrich may not see the danger above ground, but sooner or later a lightning bolt will blast from the sky and strike his feathered butt. I want someone to erect a statue of this demigod, just so we can tear it down, stomp on it and burn the bronze back to the Earth. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. The Donald is going down and millions of Americans will be happy he’s gone. In NOVEMBER we must save America from all those self-serving goofballs in government. Why should people have to die because Trump is a limp leader? Get angry, get ready and let’s get back to work!
