For The First Time In Its History ‘O, The Oprah Winfrey Magazine’ Won’t Feature Her On The Cover

Oprah Winfrey is a Horatio Alger success story on steroids, born in abject poverty in rural Mississippi she became the richest African American of the 20th century and the first black multi-billionaire.

Her success extended far beyond her incredible financial wealth, she has been one of the most influential women in the world for decades and she’s the greatest black philanthropist in American history.

Oprah has shared her wealth but she has been loath to share the spotlight with anyone, her media empire is a cult of personality dedicated to spreading the splendor of Oprah.

Oprah launched O, The Oprah Winfrey Magazine (Yes, that’s the official title) in 2000, and she has appeared on every damn cover.

In July 2020, Oprah announced that O Magazine will end its regular print publications after the December 2020 issue. On the upcoming September 2020, for the first time the cover won’t feature another photoshopped image of Oprah, instead readers will see a digital artist’s rendering of the Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old African American EMT who was fatally shot in her home by police executing a no-knock search warrant.

Really Oprah? Too little, to damn late. Instead of feeding your ego you could have featured a black victim of police brutality, a black entrepreneur, or a black civil rights leader every month on the cover of your magazine for the last twenty years.

Racist Trump is Now Saying the Quiet Part Out Loud! Racist Loser!

As President Donald Trump sees his ratings plunge because of his mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic, he’s become more desperate and he’s now saying the quiet part out loud. Dog whistles have turned into clarion calls for white supremacy, and the racist-in-chief is showing his true colors.

When the Trump administration rescinded an Obama-era fair housing rule last week, it justified the move as part and parcel of his campaign to do away with onerous regulations.

On Wednesday Trump said the quiet part out loud on Twitter:

“I am happy to inform all of the people living their Suburban Lifestyle Dream that you will no longer be bothered or financially hurt by having low income housing built in your neighborhood.  Your housing prices will go up based on the market, and crime will go down. I have rescinded the Obama-Biden AFFH Rule. Enjoy!”

This is how Trump’s base of white evangelicals and white supremacists will interpret his tweet:

I am happy in inform all you good white folks who fled the violent cities to live out the American Dream in the safe suburbs that you will no longer be bothered by having low income housing that attract niggers built in your neighborhoods. Your housing prices will not go down because there will be no porch monkeys residing in your neighborhood. Enjoy, this is the perk of having a nationalist as your president.

“The 2015 Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule requires local governments to proactively ensure fair housing in order to receive federal housing funding. It was designed to give more teeth to the Fair Housing Act in combating segregation and was praised by civil rights groups at the time.”

Trump’s racist strategy will not work, suburban white women are turning away from him, as is the rest of America who hasn’t swallowed the Kool-Aid.

Trump Was Bored With the Coronavirus Pandemic Until His Advisers Told Him it Was Hurting ‘Our People’

“President Donald Trump was bored with the pandemic, seeing it — an average of 850 deaths, each day, since February — as a distraction from all of the ‘wins,’ from a new trade deal to a soaring stock market, he wishes he could campaign on instead.

But then senior advisers tried a new approach: they told the president that the coronavirus wasn’t just killing liberals in blue states, but hurting Republicans and could spread in swing states.

‘Our people.’ That’s the term one senior Trump administration official used in an interview with The Washington Post.”


Donald Trump thinks in terms of news cycles and viral moments, I’m not surprised he’s bored with a pandemic that lasts months, if not years.

Trump has the attention span of a colicky baby, and it’s almost impossible for his advisers to get him to focus on the existential crisis that is threatening to derail the Trump train.

Trump was tweeting and golfing while the coronavirus pandemic was raging out of control, he was totally unmoved with a daily death count in the hundreds. Trump’s handlers finally got his attention by telling him that the coronavirus wasn’t just killing liberals in blue states, but killing Republicans in red states as well. “Our people” is the term they used to get the attention of the stable genius.

Trump isn’t trying to expand his base to win reelection, he cares only about his people, his base of white nationalists, white evangelicals and uneducated rednecks.

The appeal to “our people” was genius and it worked, for a couple of weeks anyway. The idiot didn’t veer from the pre-scripted remarks in the teleprompter during his coronavirus briefings, and he took only a handful of questions from reporters. Trump even tweeted that wearing a mask was a patriotic responsibility to flatten the curve. (paraphrase)

Trump was back to tomfoolery on Twitter last night, retweeting a video that promotes hydroxychloroquine as a cure for the coronavirus, and disparaging wearing masks in public.

We’re screwed, a leopard never changes his spots, and Trump is going to continue to be fixated on tweeting, counting how many times he flushes the toilet, and watching cable news outlets while the pandemic decimates our country.

Trump Chickens Out, Won’t Throw Out First Pitch at Yankees Game

“After a weekend golfing at his New Jersey course, President Donald J. Trump backtracked on his announcement that he would throw out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium on Aug. 15. Trump cited his focus on the coronavirus pandemic and economy as the reason for his reversal, which came less than 24 hours after Yankees Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Hicks knelt during the national anthem in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and racial injustice protests going on across the country.

New York Daily News

Donald Trump’s strategy for dealing with the coronavirus pandemic that has infected over four million Americans and killed almost 150,00 is to ignore it and hope that one day it will miraculously disappear.

Trump makes time to golf almost every weekend at one of his golf resorts, and when he’s in the White House most of his time is devoted to executive time: tweeting, watching cable news outlets, and counting how many times he flushes the toilet.

Yet Trump had the chutzpah to say that he won’t be able to throw out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium on August 15 because he’s too busy dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.

Dr. Anthony Fauci’s horrific ceremonial first pitch before the Nationals-Yankees game must be weighing heavy on Trump’s mind. I seriously doubt the morbidly obese president can throw a ball the distance of 60 feet, 6 inches from the pitching mound to home plate.

The good-natured Dr. Fauci laughed off his wild first pitch, but the insecure narcissist Trump would be devastated if screwed up his first pitch and was ridiculed by the press and late-night comics.

The August 15 game will be played without fans in Yankee Stadium, and Trump wouldn’t have to worry about a large crowd booing him unmercifully because of the horrible way he’s managed the pandemic. However, he would certainly not be warmly received by the players, and they might even laugh at him if his throw falls somewhere between the pitching mound and home base.

You made the right move loser, just stay home and don’t tarnish the national pastime with your unwanted presence.

Trump Complains He Has to Flush Toilet a Dozen Times, I’m Not Surprised He’s Full of Crap

“There must be something seriously wrong with the plumbing in the White House or at Mar-a-Lago. For the past few months, Donald Trump has complained about having to flush “toilets 10 times, 15 times, as opposed to once” and showers, faucets, and dishwashers that didn’t work, to the amusement of his audiences and the evening talk shows. Last week, on the White House lawn, he again lambasted showers and dishwashers:

‘So shower heads, you take a shower, the water doesn’t come out. You wanna wash your hands, the water doesn’t come out. So what do you do? You just stand there longer, or you take a shower longer because my hair … I don’t know about you but my hair has to be perfect, perfect.’”


Nobody should be surprised that the short-fingered vulgarian often resorts to toilet humor to elicit laughter from an audience. The stable genius revels in the mirth produced by his toilet jokes.

Jokes are the funniest when they are based on truth, and Trump is so full of shit that I’m not surprised that he has to flush the toilet multiple times.

With the world going to hell in a handbasket, you’d think Trump would be worried about the economy tanking or the coronavirus surging in dozen of states. But the narcissist-in-chief jokes about what worries him the most: his toilet habits and the state of his hair.

It’s interesting that the stable genius thinks his hairstyle that defies the laws of physics and is an aesthetic nightmare is perfect. That tells you all you need to know about Trump’s relationship with reality.

There are a hundred and one important reasons not to reelect Trump, and way down on the list is that if Biden wins at least we know that he won’t be staring at himself in the mirror all the time, and he won’t need to flush the toilet a dozen times after every bowel movement.

Stable Genius Donald Trump Doesn’t Need Any Medical Experts at His Coronavirus Press Briefings

“Donald Trump gain held a press briefing focused on the coronavirus crisis, and he again went solo: No Vice President Mike Pence, who is leading the White House task force on the pandemic, and no medical experts.

Asked by CNN’s Kaitlin Collins on Wednesday why they were not present, Trump said, ‘They are briefing me. I am meeting them. I just spoke to Dr. Fauci. Dr. Birx is right outside. And they are giving me everything they know as of this point in time and I am giving the information to you, and it seems to be a very concise way of doing it. It seems to be working out very well.”


Who needs medical experts in a presidential press briefing on the coronavirus pandemic when God has blessed us with a commander-in-chief who dispenses excellent medical advice such as swallowing Clorox as protection against the virus.

Who needs medical experts such as Dr. Fauci, the preeminent expert on infectious diseases, who has a penchant for boring laypersons with his reliance on science, statistics and facts?

Who needs medical experts who are terrified of the coronavirus and too cowardly to appear in public without their foolish and useless masks?

Thank God we have a stable genius in the White House who is unencumbered by science and empirical evidence and soothes a worried electorate by telling us that the coronavirus will soon miraculously disappear.

Thank God our president is a man of the people who doesn’t wear a mask and showers us with his spittle as wise counsel emanates from his sphincter-shaped mouth.

Trump meets with his medical experts before addressing the nation, and rest assured that he listens to their jibber-jaber and then tells us what we really need to know.

It’s working out well, don’t you think?

If Trump Urged His Supporters to Wear a Kotex Pad Over Over Their Mouths to Fight the Coronavirus, They Would Comply

According to Donald Trump real men don’t eat quiche, they don’t put on prophylactics and they don’t don masks.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s premier infectious disease expert, and other members of the White House Coronavirus Task Force have repeatedly urged the public to wear masks, but Trump’s fanatical supporters have followed his lead by refusing to wear them.

After months of resistance to facial coverings, Trump on Tuesday urged Americans to wear them to help contain the coronavirus outbreak that’s raging out of control throughout the U.S, including many red states.

“We’re asking everybody that, when you are not able to socially distance, wear a mask,” he said at White House news briefing. “Whether you like the mask or not, they have an impact, they have an effect, and we need everything we can get.”

The pertinent question is how will Trump supporters react to his epiphany, eight months in to a pandemic, that wearing a mask will flatten the curve? After all, not wearing a mask in a grocery store, mall, or restaurant has become an act of loyalty to their false messiah.

I suspect that if Trump follows up his call for Americans to wear a mask in public by wearing them when he makes public appearances that his supporters will follow his example.

If Trump urged Americans to wear a woman’s sanitary pad over their mouths to fight the coronavirus and he wore a Kotex pad emblazoned with the presidential seal over his sphincter-shaped mouth, there would be an army of MAGA heads wearing sanitary pads covering their mouths.

Nancy Pelosi Says Trump May Need to be Fumigated out of the White House

President Donald Trump declined to commit to accepting the election results during his infamous interview with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday.

In fact, Trump is already laying down the groundwork for remaining in office if he loses to Joe Biden, by constantly peddling the conspiracy theory that mail-in voting during a pandemic will result in massive voter fraud.

Trump has the chutzpah to claim to believe in this conspiracy theory even though he, members of his immediate family and many of his most prominent supporters have voted by mail.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is having none of it, she warned that Trump should prepare to be fumigated out of the White House if he refuses to leave.

“Whether he knows it yet or not, he will be leaving,” Pelosi said on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. Just because he might not want to move out of the White House doesn’t mean we won’t have an inauguration ceremony to inaugurate a duly elected president of the United States.”

Some of Trump’s hotels and resorts have suffered bedbug infestations, and no doubt the White House will need to be fumigated after four years of Trump and his rats and sycophants living and working there.

I would also suggest an exorcism to cleanse the People’s House from the sins of racism, misogyny and homophobia.

Our long national nightmare will soon be over, Joe Biden will win in a landslide and Trump is going to be kicked to the curb.

Trump Calls Dr. Fauci ‘a Bit of an Alarmist’ as the Coronavirus Pandemic Rages Out of Control

Noted medical genius Donald Trump (How can we forget his sage advice to inject disinfectants to kill the coronavirus) called Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s premier infectious disease expert, an alarmist as the coronavirus pandemic rages out of control in Florida, Texas, California, Georgia and many other southern states.

I guess noted historian Donald Trump considers Paul Revere “a bit of an alarmist” for yelling “The British are coming, the British are coming.” If not for the warning of Revere the unsuspecting colonists would have been wiped out by the British army.

Revere warned the colonists in Concord, Massachusetts of an impending attack, while Fauci is warning all of America about an enemy that is already here and killing tens of thousands.

Trump downplays the coronavirus out of political expediency, while Fauci warns Americans about COVID-19 out of concern for the public. Trump has referred to the raging pandemic as a “flu” and he has repeatedly insisted that it will miraculously disappear.

Is it any wonder that according to new polling from Quinnipiac University only 30% of registered voters say they trust the information that Trump is providing about the coronavirus and 65% say they trust the information Fauci I s proving about the pandemic?

Roger Stone Calls Black Radio Host a ‘Negro’! Stone is a Typical White Evangelical

“President Trump’s reprieved adviser Roger Stone called a black radio host a ‘Negro’ during a heated live interview Saturday — prompting the furious host to later tweet, I’m nobody’s Negro.

At the time, Stone was getting a grilling over the merits of his convictions for lying to Congress by Morris O’Kelly, known as Mo’Kelly, the host of a broadcast on Southern California’s KFI AM 640.”

New York Post

Roger Stone who has a penchant for orgies and a long history of engaging in the politics of personal destruction claimed to have given his life to Jesus some six months ago. Methinks that his conversion was a ploy to encourage white evangelicals to petition Trump to pardon him.

But maybe the conversion was real, because Stone is acting just like a white evangelical. Racism and evangelicalism go hand-in-hand, especially in the South. Stone called a black radio host a “Negro” when he was being grilled over his presidential pardon. Racism is right beneath the surface of your average white evangelical, and it doesn’t take much for them to show their true colors.

Lying and evangelicalism also go hand-in-hand, and Stone lied when the radio host admonished him for calling him a Negro. Evangelicals default mode is to lie when reality contradicts their misreading of the Bible. I bet after the interview Stone told his friends: How dare that nigger embarrass me!

When O’Kelly asked Stone why he called him a Negro he responded”

“I did not!  You’re out of your mind. You’re out of your mind.”

Stone denied uttering the racial epithet even though he did so in a live interview. Evangelicals deny Trump is a vain, racist piece of crap, even though his every utterance proves that my statement is on point. Stone’s spiritual growth is amazing, in only a few months he’s become an excellent example of what it means to be a white evangelical in the age of Trump

Chris Cuomo Blasts Trump Over Photo With Goya Products

Donald Trump who has never bought a Goya product in his life, and most likely never will, posed for an Oval Office photo with an array of Goya Foods products because its CEO lavished praise on him. Trump has no reservations about cheapening his office by hawking products if the company’s CEO praises him.

Chris Cuomo’s response to this sideshow emanating from the White House was classic:

“You tell me how a president, in the middle of a pandemic, has got time for this bullshit?

Trump is so grotesque in his physical appearance, and most of all in his behavior and philosophy that he elicits a primal response. I can’t count the times I’ve shouted “bullshit” at the TV screen when Trump has told a whopper. I hope Cuomo isn’t reprimanded by CNN management for his very human response to Trump’s fuckery.

Maybe it’s a good thing Trump is ignoring the pandemic, or else he might have posed for an Oval Office photo with an array of Clorox products. I can just see the stable genius gingerly holding a cup of bleach with both of his tiny hands and instructing his followers to drink it to cure themselves of the coronavirus.

Chris you spoke for all of us, thank you for using your platform to register our absolute disgust with the racist pig in the Oval Office.

It’s Time to Change the Name of Lynchburg, VA

I was born in San Francisco, CA, perhaps the most diverse city in America; the City by the Bay welcomes people of all ethnicities, sexual orientations and religious backgrounds. I am proud to proclaim that I was born and raised in San Francisco.

Twenty years ago, for personal and financial reasons I moved to Lynchburg, Va. I was embarrassed when I informed my colleagues and friends that I was moving to a small city in Virginia called Lynchburg. That name has such violent, racist, and horrifying connotations.

The city was named after the city’s founder, John Lynch and was not derived from the crime of lynching. Heaven knows how many lynchings have taken place in the 234 history of Lynchburg, but it’s only in the aftermath of the modern-day lynching of George Floyd that some residents of Lynchburg have considered changing the name of their quaint little town in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.  

I’m a progressive who was born in the city evangelicals love to call Sodom, and naturally I almost never agree with Trump supporter Jerry Falwell, Jr, the president of the evangelical mecca, Liberty University. But I say “Amen” to this press release from Falwell:

“I personally support changing the name of the city of Lynchburg. It’s been an embarrassment to Liberty University ever since we started. That was one of the reasons Liberty’s original name was changed from Lynchburg Baptist College to Liberty Baptist College in 1976.”

When even Jerry Falwell, Jr. calls for the renaming of Lynchburg, it’s time to change the name of Lynchburg to a name that doesn’t embarrass and shame its residents.

San Francisco is the most beautiful city in the world, but Lynchburg is also blessed with natural beauty and friendly residents. I’m proud to say that I’m from San Francisco and if Lynchburg changes its name, I will also be proud to say that I love in this charming city.

Link to petition to change the name of Lynchburg:

Roger Stone Finds Jesus, Must be the Same Republican Jesus that Trump’s White Evangelical Supporters Worship

“President Donald Trump’s longtime friend and campaign adviser Roger Stone says he was never worried about going to prison.

Just days before he was set to begin serving a 40-month prison sentence after being convicted of lying to lawmakers who were investigating whether Russia influenced the 2016 elections, Trump commuted his sentence.

‘Praise be to God. I was never nervous or worried because I had prayed so fervently for deliverance from my persecutors and I knew in my heart that He would Protect me,’ he told me.”


Roger stone is the quintessential political trickster, his hardball political tactics, blind loyalty to his clients and unbridled glee at the success of his politics of personal destruction ensured that there would always be Republican candidates lined up to avail themselves of his services.  

It’s a miracle that Stone’s Machiavellian politics and win at all costs mentality didn’t land him in prison, but he managed to avoid the Big House in his long career from working for Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George W Bush.

But it looked like working for Donald Trump, who makes Richard Nixon look like a Sunday School teacher, would finally get him imprisoned. Stone was facing prison time after being convicted of lying to Congress, witness tampering, and obstruction of justice.

Stone wasn’t worried about going to prison because in his own words:

“Praise be to God. I was never nervous or worried because I had prayed so fervently for deliverance from my persecutors and I knew in my heart that He would Protect me.”

Praise God Indeed, Stone knew that he would protect him, after all Trump had repeatedly hinted that he would pardon his loyal aide. I’m sure Stone who has a penchant for orgies prayed fervently to his false messiah to save him while clutching a rosary in one hand and a porn DVD in the other.

Stone claims to have given his life to Jesus some six months ago, and I suspect his “conversion” will have zero influence on the hardball and sometimes criminal ways he conducts business as a political consultant. After all, the white evangelical Christians who are Trump’s most loyal supporters, wax orgasmic at the evil machinations of their hero.

Trump Considered Selling Puerto Rico Following Hurricane Maria

“President Donald Trump considered the idea of selling Puerto Rico in 2017 after the island was devastated by Hurricane Maria, the former acting Homeland Security secretary told The New York Times in an interview published Friday.”


Donald Trump did the bare minimum to help Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, besides tossing rolls of paper towels to a crowd of relief workers in San Juan. After all, the racist-in-chief probably calculated, “why give Puerto Rico millions in aid when they can’t express their gratitude by voting for him in the general election?” (Puerto Ricans like residents of the other four US territories do not have the right to vote in general elections.)

The racist Trump wanted to buy Greenland, which is a sheet of ice populated by Caucasians, but he wanted to sell Puerto Rico which is a beautiful island populated by Puerto Ricans.

Elaine Duke, who was serving as DHS’ acting secretary when the hurricane hit the island in September 2017, said that the stable genius told her:

“Can we outsource the electricity? Can we can we sell the island? You know, or divest of that asset?”

It’s a good thing that Trump’s aides, at least early on in his administration, ignored and didn’t follow-up on his insane suggestions.

I wish we could sell Trump to another nation, but who would pay good money for a steaming pile of shit?

Trump Wore Mask for First Time in Public When He Visited Walter Reed Medical Center

Donald Trump wore a face mask in public for the first time when he visited Walter Reed Medical Center, where he met with wounded troops and medical staff. “You’re in a hospital setting, I think it’s a very appropriate thing, the stable genius said. No shit, Sherlock!

The commander-in-chief had defiantly refused to don a mask in public throughout the coronavirus pandemic, that’s akin to a firefighter refusing to put on his flame-resistant uniform whenever he responds to a call.

A firefighter who responds to a raging fire clad in jeans and a polo shirt would be ridiculed by onlookers and fired by the Fire Department, but Trump has been lauded by his fanatical base for refusing to wear a face covering in a raging pandemic.

It should be noted that Trump wore a mask in public for the first time only after almost every other prominent Republican has urged citizens to wear a mask and only after over three million Americans have been infected by the virus, and over 130,000 have died from the disease.

Trump’s fancy mask was navy blue bearing the presidential seal in gold, maybe if someone designs a mask bearing the presidential seal in gold and Trump’s name in gold, he might wear it every time he appears in public.

Certainly he needs to set an example for his followers, because they won’t wear a mask until their messiah consistently wears one in public.

Boycott Goya Products! Anyone Who Supports Trump is Anathema!

“The CEO of Goya Foods, which bills itself as the country’s largest Hispanic-owned food company, praised President Donald Trump during a visit to the White House on Thursday.

Social backlash followed.

The hashtags #Goyaway and #BoycottGoya soon began trending on Twitter, while some  Latinos also expressed disappointment with the CEO’s praise for a president who they say continuously attacks Latinos.

‘We’re all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder,’ CEO Robert Unanue said during a speech after a roundtable with Trump and other Hispanic leaders.”

USA Today

Donald Trump’s toxic Twitter posts, racist rhetoric and policies that seem designed to punish minorities expose him as a blatant racist. As Maya said, when someone shows you who they are, believe them.

In the face of overwhelming evidence that Trump is a racist, at this point anyone who still supports him is a racist, or a morally suspect person who realizes that he’s a racist, but overlooks, rationalizes or tries to explain away his racism out of political expediency or personal gain.  

Trump revealed his enmity toward the Latino community since his first campaign speech for the presidency, in which he described Mexican immigrants as “rapists” and “criminals.”

For the CEO of Goya Foods, a brand beloved by Latinos, to heap praise on the racist-in-chief is unforgivable, and he must be punished. Unanue’s epitaph should read:

“We’re truly blessed to have a leader like Donald Trump.”

Goya brands are as ubiquitous in Hispanic households as jars of mayonnaise are in MAGA households. No more I say, no more! Boycott Goya brands! Enough is Enough! We must not tolerate hypocrites and traitors in our ranks!

Trump Meets Mexico’s President and Doesn’t Bring Up the Subject of the Wall

Building a wall from coast to coast on our border with Mexico was Trump’s most consequential 2016 campaign promise and the defining issue of the first three years of his presidency. Trump not only promised that he, the master real estate developer would build the wall, but also that he the master negotiator would somehow cajole or intimidate Mexico to pay for it.

Trump has abjectly failed to build the wall and to have Mexico pay for it:

“On December 17, 2019, acting Commissioner of US Customs and Border Protection Mark Morgan stated that 93 miles of barriers has been built during the Trump administration; according to CBP figures, at least 90 miles of that replaced existing structures.”


Trump has given up on his outlandish promise, evidenced by the fact that when he hosted Mexico’s recently elected President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador at the White House for the first time on Wednesday, he didn’t remind him that Mexico has yet to pay a dime towards his vanity project.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said the subject didn’t come up when she was in the room. I’m not surprised, Trump didn’t want to risk having the Mexican leader tell him in no uncertain terms that Mexico wouldn’t pay for the damn wall.

Let’s not forget that Obrador’s predecessor, Enrique Peña Nieto, indignantly tweeted back in 2018:

Mexico will NEVER pay for a wall. Not now, not ever.”

Trump has less than a year left to wreak havoc, and I’m sorry to disappoint his racist base, but he’s not going to build the damn wall. In fact, he has replaced his fixation with the wall with an obsession with protecting Confederate monuments.

Trump is Campaigning on a Platform of Racism and Praising an Economy That’s Been Destroyed by the Coronavirus

Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton, to a large extent, because he succeeded in demonizing “Crooked Hilary”. He persuaded a jaded electorate that they should bet on him, because the Republican establishment represented by the likes of “Low Energy” Jeb Bush and the Democratic establishment symbolized by the likes of e-mail deleting Hillary Clinton had so utterly failed to improve the lives of working class and middle-class Americans.

It wasn’t difficult for Trump to demonize a politician who reeked of the sulfur of corruption and elitism. Trump didn’t win because the electorate loved him, they simply hated him less than Hillary, and they wanted to send the message that they were sick and tired of the establishment.

The election is only four months away, but Trump hasn’t focused on demonizing Joe Biden. Trump’s half-hearted efforts to criticize Biden as “Sleepy Joe” hasn’t gained any traction, and he has to ramp up his “trash talk” if he wants to take down Biden a peg or two.

I don’t blame Trump for ignoring Biden, voters had a visceral hatred of Clinton and she was an easy candidate to run against, but people tend to look endearingly at Joe Biden.

Instead of attacking Biden, Trump is running on how great the economy is, or should I say was before it was crushed by the coronavirus pandemic.  

Against all evidence to the contrary Trump is pushing the false narrative that the COVID-19 pandemic is petering out and it will soon miraculously disappear.

And above all else Trump is doubling down and tripling down on racism, wrapping himself in the Confederate flag, and declaring himself the protector of Confederate statues and monuments.

Trump’s campaign platform of extolling an economy that has now been shattered, playing down a pandemic that is raging out of control, and fanning the flames of racism guarantees that he will suffer a defeat of landslide proportions.

Fox News Crops Trump Out of Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell Photo

“Fox News apparently cropped President Donald Trump out of a photograph with Jeffrey Epstein on Sunday, during the network’s coverage of the arrest of Ghislane Maxwell.

The edited photo aired on America’s News Headquarters while anchor Leland Vittert reported on Maxwell’s arrest and the charges against her in connection with Jeffrey Epstein’s child sex crimes.


Fox News creates an alternate reality where Donald Trump is a wise, eloquent, compassionate and courageous commander-in-chief. To that end Fox News cropped the short-fingered vulgarian out of a photograph with Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislane Maxwell.

They shouldn’t have resorted to digital manipulation the majority of Americans are cognizant that Trump is a racist, evil, vulgar and cowardly tyrant, and his base will always believe that he’s the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, regardless what obscenities he commits.

If a video was uncovered that depicted Trump having an orgy with the Antichrist, Lindsey (Lady G) Graham, Aileen Wuronos’ corpse and a dozen Russian hookers, he wouldn’t lose any evangelical support.

Trump’s white evangelical base will never live in the real world as long as they have Fox News, fringe Web sites, YouTube conspiracy theory videos and their twisted interpretation of the Bible.

How Trump must laugh at the ignorance of his evangelical base as Mike Pence licks his ass every morning and a prostitute services him every night.

A Desperate Trump is Doubling Down on Racism

Donald Trump isn’t a conservative like Ronald Reagan who had a clearly delineated philosophy of building up our military to bankrupt the Evil Empire and implementing supply-side economics to make the rich richer and the poor poorer.

Trump isn’t even a conservative, but he became a Republican out of political expediency because his racism and nationalism resonated with the white evangelicals who would tip the presidential election in his favor.

From the surreal moment when Trump descended the golden escalator at Trump Tower to announce his presidency by calling Mexicans rapists and criminals, he’s made racism the central focus of his political rhetoric.

But what were once dog whistles and winks and nods are now clarion calls celebrating white nationalism. In the time of a pandemic and a time of racial reckoning the stable genius is pretending the pandemic isn’t raging out-of-control and isn’t making any effort whatsoever to unite Americans.

Because the short-fingered vulgarian is sinking in the polls, he’s doubling down on racism: Defending Confederate statues, saying “black lives matter” is a symbol of hate, and posting blatantly racist videos on Twitter.

Trump is destined for an ignominious defeat in November, and if Republicans want to survive as a viable national party now is the time to reject Trump and his racism. But I don’t see that happening and for the foreseeable future the GOP will be tarnished by Trump’s racism.

If I’m wrong and Trump is reelected the American experiment will end and America will become the land of the fascists and the home of the racists.

Uncle Tom Herman Cain Hospitalized with Coronavirus Days After Attending Tulsa MAGA Rally

Former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain has been hospitalized with COVID-19 less than two weeks after attending the disastrous Tulsa MAGA rally. Cain posted a photo on Twitter of himself at the ill-fated rally, seating shoulder-to-shoulder with other maskless morons.

Cain attended the rally in his capacity as the co-founder of “Black Voices for Trump.” That’s as insane as a Jewish person founding a group called, “Jewish Voices for Hitler.”

A spokesperson for the Uncle Tom described the 73-year-old as “resting comfortably” at an Atlanta-area hospital. Although Cain isn’t on a ventilator, nobody rests comfortably at a hospital.

Just hours before he was admitted to the hospital Cain sent a tweet promoting a Trump event in South Dakota where masks wouldn’t be mandatory.

“Masks will not be mandatory for the event, which will be attended by President Trump,” he said. “PEOPLE ARE FED UP!”

What people are fed up with are Uncle Toms who support a blatantly racist president who rejects science and refuses to wear a mask in public.

As Cain “rests comfortably” at the hospital I hope he contemplates his mortality and considers the wisdom of mocking those who wear a mask in the face of a pandemic. And I sure as hell hope he considers the morality of supporting a racist president.

Donald Trump Jr: ‘It’s Not too Complicated to Wear a Mask’

“Donald Trump Jr. said Tuesday that masks should be worn during the Republican National Convention in Jacksonville, Fla., with the president’s eldest son stating the precaution is “not too complicated” to help ensure the event is carried out safely and appropriately.”

The Hill

As the coronavirus pandemic spikes in the South and West, Republican leaders are finally pushing back against the notion that masks are about politics, as Donald Trump suggests.

The head of the White House Coronavirus Task Force Vice President Mike Pence has finally seen the light and has started wearing a mask in public and urging Americans to follow his lead. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell instructed Americans to wear one when they are unable to maintain social distance.  

And now even Donald Trump Jr. said that masks should be worn during the Republican National Convention.

The president remains the only noteworthy GOP leader who is still peddling the dangerous notion that wearing a mask is about politics and not public safety. If Trump donned a mask in public and urged his supporters to do the same the curve might finally be flattened.

After all, Trump’s supporters will do anything their false messiah tells them to do. If Trump orders them to jump off a cliff, they would leap off the cliff while screaming, “I love Trump!” If Trump told them to wear their underwear as a face covering to protect them from the coronavirus, they would immediately take off their dirty drawers and cover their faces.

The same way that Donald Trump Jr. would urge his senile old dad to zip up his pants before facing the press, he should convince the doddering old stable genius to wear a mask in public.
