Trump the Super Spreader-in-Chief to Hold a Super-Spreader Rally Every Day Until Election

To no one’s surprise Donald Trump’s bout with a serious case of COVID-19 failed to temper his anti-science rhetoric; he’s still downplaying the coronavirus and refusing to treat it as an existential threat to our society.

In fact, the super spreader-in-chief is touting his own recovery as proof there is nothing to fear from a pandemic that’s has killed more than 217,000 Americans. Never mind that no other coronavirus patient in the world has a hospital suite dedicated to his recovery, and that the expensive experimental therapies he benefited from aren’t available to anyone else.

The Covidiot has promised to hold a super-spreader rally every day until the election. In his COVID-friendly rallies his maskless supporters are packed like sardines, and they bask in the presence of their Savior who has overcome the coronavirus.

Trump supporters live in an alternate reality where the coronavirus has no power to infect the righteous who worship the vulgarian-in-chief. They believe Trump’s argument that the pandemic is almost over, and that the coronavirus will miraculously disappear after he wins the election.

One thing is clear, the virus won’t disappear anytime in the foreseeable future, regardless who wins the election. But the pandemic of misinformation, conspiracy theories, and constant chaos will go away if Joe Biden wins.

Trump’s Gasping for Air Viral Moment Perfect Metaphor for his Moribund Campaign

President Donald Trump was prematurely discharged from Walter Reed Medical Center following his coronavirus diagnosis and the former reality talk show host, choreographed a triumphant return to the White House. A White House that is now a coronavirus hot zone, thanks to his cavalier attitude toward the deadly virus.

Trump walked up the stairs to the Truman balcony for the photo op. The demented moron imagined his Mussolini Moment, preening before the camera, giving a salute and a thumbs up, and removing his mask would resonate with his base who considers him a cross between General Patton and Jesus Christ.

This show biz moment was ruined by the reality that the 74-year-old obese coronavirus patient is still in the grips of the virus. Trump tweeted that he was feeling better than he did 20 years ago, but the video depicting him gasping for air made him look like he had aged 20 years during his short hospital stay.

Even his most loyal supporters must have shuddered at the sight of their selfish and self-absorbed leader putting his family and staff at risk with his reckless decision to return home and removing his mask. A White House photographer was just inches away from him on the Truman balcony chronicling his insane antics.

The gasping for air viral moment speaks a thousand words of the vanity and emptiness of the Trump administration. It’s a perfect metaphor for a campaign that is on life support, gasping for air.  

Trump’s Reaction to Staggering Coronavirus Death Toll: ‘It Is What It Is’

President Donald Trump cavalierly said the United States’ staggering death toll from the coronavirus “is what it is” in his disastrous interview with Jonathan Swan.

The reason Trump’s interview with Swan was a disaster of biblical proportions is simply because the Axios reporter didn’t allow the liar-in-chief to get away with nonsensical statements and outlandish lies. Any interviewer worth his salt must be prepared to fact check the president in real time and not allow him to dodge a question by going off on a stream-of-consciousness diatribe that bears no relation to the question.

“Is what it is” perfectly captures Trump’s dark soul, he has no empathy for the millions of Americans infected with the coronavirus and for the thousands of families who have buried victims from the disease.

Most sociopaths at least fake empathy in order to blend in with polite society, but Trump is so confident that his base will vote for him even if he acts like a soulless monster, that he doesn’t even make the effort to fake empathy.

“Is what it is” also exposes Trump’s ignorance of the coronavirus, how it spreads and how it can be contained. The stable genius just shrugs in surrender, and utters “It is what it is.” Trump is totally unqualified intellectually, morally and spiritually to deal with a pandemic that has destroyed our economy and killed tens of thousands of Americans.

I imagine the Biden campaign is already producing commercials with the tagline: Is what it is. When Trump loses in a landslide, I imagine there will be millions exclaiming: Oh Well, It is what it is!

Trump Brags (Lies) About Attracting Huge Crowds in Coronavirus Epicenters

My visits last week to Texas and Frorida had massive numbers of cheering people gathered along the roads and highways, thousands and thousands, even bigger (by far) than the crowds of 2016. Saw no Biden supporters, and yet some in the Fake News said it was an equal number. Sad!

Donald Trump tweet

This is a typical Trump tweet in that it contains typos, lies, and an obsession with numbers.

You’d think the stable genius wouldn’t misspell “Florida” a swing state that he desperately needs to win.

It’s a blatant lie that there were massive numbers of cheering people gathered along the roads and highways when he visited Texas and Florida. Last week Trump held a campaign rally in Tampa, Florida that had a disappointing turnout. After the Tulsa debacle, Trump should realize that in a pandemic his supporters, many of whom are senior citizens, aren’t going to show up for his rallies in the same numbers as in 2016.

Trump shouldn’t be bragging, or should is say lying, about his campaign stops in Texas and Florida attracting massive numbers of cheering people. These two states have set new records for coronavirus deaths over the past few days, if anything he should be encouraging the residents of these two states to avoid crowds.

Trump points out that he saw no Biden supporters, which begs the question: why the holy hell would Biden supporters show up at a MAGA rally?

This tweet just emphasizes the fact that Trump is a demented lying piece of shit, and it’s high time to kick him to the curb.

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.”

BusinessInsider.Com

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Chaos King, Donald Trump, Will Not Survive the Chaos of the Coronavirus Pandemic and Racial Unrest

Donald Trump is like a whirling dervish in a china shop, oblivious to the havoc and destruction he is wreaking while the shop owner, employees and customers panic and try to stay out of the path of destruction.

Trump has always thrived in chaos; he embraces chaos and draws energy from its destructive fury.

Trump was a novice politician when he entered the 2016 presidential race, but he was a veteran at causing chaos and benefiting from it. The stable genius upended the race, rendering his seasoned political foes impotent and helpless at his unconventional campaign that relied on vulgar insults, childish name-calling, and outrageous lies.

After Trump steamrolled over his Republican challengers and beat Hillary Clinton senseless and became President of the United States, the chaos didn’t end, he didn’t suddenly become presidential and rational.

The Trump presidency has been an endless roller coaster ride, where the roller coaster periodically flies off the tracks only to magically land back on track. Trump has not only survived the chaos of the Muller investigation, impeachment and the Ukraine scandal, but has emerged stronger and seemingly invincible.

But chaos always wins, it will envelop and vanquish even the most horrible tyrants. With the general election only five months away, Trump finds himself paralyzed by the coronavirus pandemic and the racial unrest unleashed by the callous and brutal murder of yet another unarmed black man by the police.

Elections are a referendum on the incumbent, and with unemployment at record levels, the economy is shambles, tens of thousands killed by the virus and our cities in flames, not even Trump can survive this unfathomable chaos.

Trump will leave office with America in a state of chaos, it will require the goodwill and tireless effort of a united people to rebuild our democracy.

COVID-19 Blues

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle during a pandemic is almost impossible, we toss and turn at night and somnolently sit during the day binge watching a series on Netflix that we won’t remember a couple of days from now.

Watching TV and eating snacks go hand-in-hand, it’s an immutable law that for every hour of TV that you watch you gain an ounce.

Working out at night at the gym was a reward for a hard day’s work at the office, but when we stay at home all day watching TV, browsing the Internet and doing much of nothing it’s difficult to work yourself up to exercise.

The longer the stay-at-home order lasts, the more we worry about our finances and the more we eat junk funk to calm our nerves. It’s a vicious cycle that will end in a heart attack from gaining too much food or worrying too much.

The average American has put on an extra five pounds since the pandemic started, and keep in mind that the average American was already overweight. The world will end not with a bang or a whimper but with a burp.

I don’t think we well survive the new normal without becoming obese bankrupt pessimists. Our only hope is that CERN will unleash a baby black hole that will put us out of our misery.

To Defeat the Coronavirus We Must Ditch the Maskless Wonder Donald Trump

Donald Trump, the self-described stable genius, visited a medical equipment distribution facility in Allentown, Pennsylvania, to tout a plan to replenish and upgrade the vital federal stockpile.

It wasn’t Trump’s mouth that resembles a sphincter, his hair that looks like urine-soaked cotton candy, or his unnatural orange complexion that makes him look like a survivor of a nuclear attack that made him stick out like a sore thumb. It was the fact that Trump and his chief of staff Mark Meadows were the only ones in the huge complex who weren’t wearing a face mask.

The CDC emphasizes that in order to flatten the curve of the coronavirus pandemic it’s imperative that Americans practice social distancing, wash their hands thoroughly and frequently and wear face masks in public.

Trump should have used this photo op to encourage the public to don face masks in public by wearing one himself.  The president and his top aides don’t practice what the CDC and all reputable physicians preach. Last week, a maskless Vice President Mike Pence visited with staff and patients at the Mayo Clinic, despite hospital policy that requires all patients and visitors to wear one.

Trump isn’t interested in following the guidance of his medical professionals, he cares only about pandering to his ignorant, science-denying base. And many of his followers think the coronavirus pandemic is a hoax, and they believe in the conspiracy theory that wearing a mask reduces the intake of oxygen, forcing them to breathe in their own carbon dioxide.

The coronavirus pandemic will be with us for months, and maybe years to come and we desperately need a leader who believes in science, sets the right tone and has empathy for his constituents in charge. This November kick the incompetent buffoon to the curb and vote for Joe Biden.

John Legend: ‘Trump is the Exact Opposite of What We Need Right Now’ Amen!

In an interview with GQ Hype John Legend said that “Donald Trump is the exact opposite of what we need right now.”

Amen, John Legend, Amen!

Under the best circumstances we don’t need Trump screwing things up and during a global pandemic he is the exact opposite of what we need.

During a health crisis that has devastated our economy and taken the lives of tens of thousands of Americans we need the president to act as the comforter-in-chief. Unfortunately, Trump is a sociopath incapable of empathizing with the suffering and pain of others. In his public statements Trump has made the coronavirus pandemic all about himself, he complains that he hasn’t received enough gratitude from the governors for the help that the federal government has rendered and he berates the press for not praising his management of the crisis.

During an existential crisis we need a leader who is calm and sober-minded, what we have in Trump is a narcissist who is unable to contain his rage against his critics, the media and scientists and physicians who won’t back up his foolish and dangerous contention that America is ready to open the economy and that the virus has been contained.

At this critical juncture in our history we need a statesman who is if not eloquent, then at least a good communicator. Trump is functionally-illiterate, and the last thing we need are his belligerent rants and incoherent stream-of-consciousness musings.

During a pandemic we need a manager who knows how to delegate authority and who will defer to the advice and counsel of physicians and scientists. Not a jackass who plays a doctor on TV and peddles fake cures and suggests that injecting coronavirus patients with disinfectants will cure them.

No shit, Donald Trump is the exact opposite of what we need right now. This virus will be with us for months if not years, just remember that when you vote this November.

‘Jesus is My Vaccine’ Signs Expose the Ignorance of White Evangelicals

There have been protests to reopen the economy in several states, and the protesters are the usual suspects: militia members, white evangelicals, Tea Party activists, white supremacists and antivaccination activists. These assorted nuts are vehemently opposed to the common sense measures that governors have taken to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

In these rallies signs proclaiming “Jesus is my vaccine” are ubiquitous, these protesters aren’t shy about exposing their ignorance to the world.

Faith in Jesus and two bucks won’t buy you a cup of coffee at Starbucks, let alone protect you from the coronavirus. The virus is no respecter of persons, it infects Muslims, Jews, mainstream Christians and nutjob white evangelicals at the same rate.

I wonder if some of those morons brandishing “Jesus is my vaccine” signs are referring to Donald Trump their false messiah, and not Jesus Christ. After all, these fools not only drink the Kool-Aid but swallow disinfectant to inoculate them from the virus, per the suggestion of their Dear Leader.

The temptation is to dismiss their ignorance and just rest in the knowledge that their misguided faith will result in cleaning up the gene pool. But their stupidity affects all of us, their defiance of social distancing and refusal to take vaccines for any disease spreads the coronavirus.

Jesus is my vaccine? I’m sorry, but there’s no vaccine against ignorance and stupidity!

Trump Ends Daily Coronavirus Briefings, Blaming the Media

Every day for the past month Donald Trump held a press briefing on the coronavirus pandemic. The daily ritual soon developed a familiar formula: the scientists and physicians on the coronavirus response team would update the public on the status of the fight against the virus and instruct the public on steps we could take to flatten the curve, and then Trump would take the podium to contradict and refute them, berate the reporters and heap praise upon himself.

In spite of the nonsense Trump spouted and the fake cures that he promoted, we put up with Trump’s narcissism to listen to the advice and information provided by the preeminent coronavirus expert in the world, Dr. Anthony Fauci and the other physicians on the team.

And then came that fateful day when Trump went too far and suggested that injected a coronavirus patient with disinfectants might cure him. Trump was universally ridiculed and criticized, even by some Republican politicians and pundits.

Finally, Trump’s aides who had been cajoling and pleading with him to end his daily briefings prevailed, and he stopped having daily coronavirus briefings. Did the thick-headed egomaniac finally see a relation between his nose-diving poll numbers and his boastful and bitter performances at these daily briefings?

Of course, Trump blamed the media for ending his daily briefings, tweeting:

“What is the purpose of having White House News Conferences when the Lamestream Media asks nothing but hostile questions, & then refuses to report the truths or facts accurately. They get record ratings, & the American people get nothing but Fake News. Not worth the time and effort!”

The perfect solution would have been for the daily coronavirus briefings to continue without Trump, but he sees himself as the only person worth listening to and put a stop to the whole thing.

Trump loves the spotlight too much and I’m predicting that before long he will resume the daily briefings. For a few minutes of meaningful information and valuable advice from the experts, we will once again have to put up with the interminable bloviating from the orange buffoon.

Outrage: Trump’s Name to be Printed on Stimulus Checks

The Treasury Department has ordered President Donald Trump’s name be printed on stimulus checks the Internal Revenue Service is rushing to send to tens of millions of Americans, a process that could slow their delivery by a few days, senior IRS officials said.

It will be the first time a president’s name appears on an IRS disbursement, whether a routine refund or one of the handful of checks the government has issued to taxpayers in recent decades either to stimulate a down economy or share the dividends of a strong one.

The Hour

Actually, the stable genius wanted his huge John Hancock to appear on every stimulus check, and he ordered the Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, who oversees the IRS, to allow him to formally sign the checks. But the president’s signature is not allowed on any check issued by the U.S. Treasury, so Mnuchin appeased his boss by printing his name on the checks instead.

Never mind that by having his signature printed on the stimulus checks he is injecting partisan politics into a bipartisan law that’s intended to help Americans of all political persuasions during the coronavirus pandemic.

And never mind that having the egomaniac’s name printed on the checks, at the last moment, will lead to a delay in issuing the first batch of checks.

Trump could care less that he is delaying issuing of checks to poor souls who desperately need the money to buy food and pay their rent. Keep in mind that most Americans have already had the stimulus payment deposited to their checking or savings accounts; it’s generally poor people who don’t have bank accounts who have to wait longer for their stimulus checks to be mailed to them.

This stimulus checks with Trump’s name fiasco illustrates how the commander-in-chief has handled the coronavirus pandemic crisis. Instead of putting the needs of Americans first, he cares only about how to exploit the crisis to burnish his brand and improve his ratings.

On November when you see Trump’s name on the ballot, I hope you will remember how he cared more about his image than he cared about voters health and welfare at the height of the coronavirus pandemic.

Evangelical Ignorance Isn’t Greater Than the Coronavirus

“An evangelical pastor died of COVID-19 just weeks after proudly showing off how packed his Virginia church was — and vowing to keep preaching unless I’m in jail or the hospital.”

The New York Post

Evangelicals are the scofflaws of religion, they often flout the law and science to not only their own detriment, but also society at large.

Bishop Gerald Glenn made a Hollywood production out of flouting the social distancing guidelines by commanding his flock to stand to prove how many were at his church service despite warnings against gatherings of more than ten people.

He vowed to keep preaching unless “I’m in jail or the hospital”, he failed to mention or the morgue. An evangelical isn’t immune to the coronavirus because he’s full of the Holy Ghost or himself, and Glenn has succumbed to the deadly virus.

The minister’s spouse has tested positive for the virus, and God only knows how many members of his congregation will fall victim as well. Unfortunately, these religious fanatics have placed their entire community at risk.

Glenn proudly boasted: I firmly believe that God is larger than this dreaded virus. You can quote me on that.

It’s interesting how evangelicals believe in an invisible deity who acts in mysterious ways, by their own admission, but fail to take seriously an invisible virus that acts in very predictable ways.

It’s no mystery how the virus spreads, and the only way to mitigate the death toll is by religiously washing your hands and practicing social distancing.

An irrational religion isn’t greater than the coronavirus, and you can quote me on that.

Trump’s Daily Coronavirus Briefings Serve Only to Heighten Our Despair and Anxiety

In his daily coronavirus briefings, Donald Trump lumbers to the podium like a whale beaching itself. A dying whale’s stench may permeate a couple of miles, but Trump’s odorous rhetoric repels a nation hungry for a few words of concern, compassion and care from their commander-in-chief.

Even Trump’s critics tune into his daily briefings in hopes of learning how they can cope with the pandemic that has turned their lives upside down, but his briefings quickly degenerate into the ranting and ravings of a sick man who has a virus more virulent than COVID-19.

Trump’s sickness has shriveled his heart and withered his soul and he is incapable of offering words of healing and hope to a devastated nation. Instead of seeing a country of 330 million souls living in fear of the deadly virus, he sees only himself and he drones on and on how the press fails to praise him for his excellent job handling the crisis.

Trump’s paranoia, spiritual poverty, vanity and narcissism serves only to heighten our anxiety. Trump would be well-advised to let Mike Pence and the team of physicians and scientists take control of the daily briefings, but he is too self-centered and arrogant to yield his daily moment in the spotlight. So, on top of the affliction the virus has wreaked on our nation, we must endure Trump’s daily shit show.

God have mercy on our nation.

Trump Cultists Willing to Sacrifice the Elderly and Open the Economy in the Middle of Coronavirus Pandemic to Help Him Win Reelection

Cult leaders are usually young, virile, eloquent and handsome men who project power and authority and every smooth word they utter is accepted as Gospel by their followers.

Donald Trump is neither young nor virile and his face with a bulbous nose, sphincter-shaped mouth and orange complexion is repulsive and frightening but every incoherent and nonsensical statement that he utters is accepted as Gospel by his white evangelical sycophants.

Having a cult leader as commander-in-chief during a time of peace and prosperity was unnerving and unsettling, but having Trump in charge during a pandemic is absolutely horrifying.

Trump followers are effectively cult members and they won’t be swayed from supporting their Dear Leader for any reason. Before they became MAGA nutjobs white evangelicals were already conditioned to accept the ranting and ravings of televangelists as the Gospel, therefore it’s not surprising that they accept everything their false Messiah says as Gospel regardless how fantastical and incoherent his comments may appear to a normal person.

During a crisis cult members depend upon and trust their cult leader more than ever, and they are willing to open the economy at the urging of their leader in the middle of a pandemic. They are more than willing to sacrifice the elderly and other vulnerable citizens in order to save the economy and help the reelection prospects of their Messiah.

For Trump cultists what’s good for Trump is good for the country and if you challenge his medically unsound policies you are fighting against God.

It’s clear that we are fighting the coronavirus as well as the more insidious infection of Trumpism. Things will not return to any semblance of normalcy until with defeat Trumpism and COVID-19

Trump’s Tasteless ‘Models’ Joke at Coronavirus Briefing

Donald Trump’s daily coronavirus briefings are so chock full of self-aggrandizement, faux-science, berating of reporters and condemnation of politicians who don’t praise him sufficiently, that it’s easy to miss some of his outrageous comments.

For example, the stable genius joked about being “involved in” models during a coronavirus briefing. Trump’s inappropriate quip came while he was commenting on the number of people who would die from COVID-19:

“The models show hundreds of thousands of people are going to die and you know hat I want to do? I want to come way under the model. The professionals did the models and I was never involved in a model. At least this kind of a model.”

Only a commander-in-chief who is totally clueless about the gravity of the pandemic that has the possibility of killing hundred of thousands of Americans would make such a tasteless joke.

Trump has been involved with plenty of models, porn stars and Playboy bunnies, in fact his wife is a former model, but now isn’t the time to remind a worried public about his shallowness.

Even Mike Pence, who is an evangelical Christian, and who usually treats every bit of nonsense that emanates from Trump’s sphincter-shaped mouth as the Gospel failed to smile or nod in agreement at his vile joke.

This tasteless joke highlights the fact that it’s time for CNN and MSNBC stop airing Trump’s daily coronavirus briefings in their entirety, they should only air the highlights, namely the comments by Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Trump’s Daily Coronavirus Press Briefing is a Sick Joke Compared to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Excellent Daily Briefing

President Donald Trump uses his daily coronavirus press briefing to berate reporters, praise his response to the pandemic, utter sheer nonsense and do what he excels at, lying. His press conferences are looking more and more like a MAGA rally.

In a crisis the nation needs a comforter-in-chief who speaks the truth with authority and defers to the medical experts, not a buffoon who contradicts the medical experts and peddles snake oil cures.

It’s not surprising that CNN, MSNBC and even Fox News have started to pull the plug on the press conferences before they mercifully come to an end.

Contrast Trump’s daily shit show with New York’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s daily coronavirus update. Cuomo is realistic and reassuring without being wildly optimistic, he comes across like a wise statesman concerned about the health of his constituents and not a crass politician obsessed with his poll ratings.

It’s not surprising that C-SPAN, CNN, MSNBC and even Fox News are airing Cuomo’s briefings in totality.

A lot less of Trump and a lot more of Cuomo is what America needs at this critical juncture in our history

Trump’s Disgusting Coronavirus Bill Photo Op

We have weeks and months to go before we win the war against the coronavirus pandemic and the devastation its wreaked on our economy.

On Friday Donald Trump signed a $2 trillion emergency bill into law that aims to mitigate the devastating effect the virus is having on our economy.

Needless to say, the signing wasn’t a somber and understated affair, Trump turned it into a photo op, and he posted an image on his Twitter account with the caption: We are marshalling the full power of government and society to achieve victory over the virus. Together, we will endure, we will prevail and we will WIN!

Indeed, it took the full power of government, Republicans and Democrats to craft this landmark legislation, but Trump didn’t invite Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi or Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer or any other Democrat to the signing ceremony.

For the photo op, the stable genius sat in the Oval Office with 15 people, all Republican and almost all old white men, close behind him and each other. I guess a photo op that Trump can use to advance his political career takes precedence over setting a good example by practicing social distancing.

Trump’s Claim that ‘You’re Going to Have Suicides by the Thousands if the Economy Doesn’t Improve’ Demonstrates He Doesn’t Understand the Poor

During a recent virtual town hall on the Fox News network Trump claimed that “you’re going to have suicides by the thousands” if the economy doesn’t improve. Trump was trying to rationalize his desire to open the country for business as usual again on Easter by arguing that if he opens the country again on Easter thousands of elderly Americans will succumb to the coronavirus, but just as many will die via suicide if we keep the country under a lockdown and the economy continues its downward spiral.

What the stable genius fails to grasp is that ordinary Americans aren’t like billionaires, we don’t define our self-worth by the size of our savings accounts, many of us don’t even have a savings account.

Long before the coronavirus turned our world upside down, the working poor were already living paycheck to paycheck. Barely getting by is a way of life for us, and we aren’t going to commit suicide because the stock market crashes, we don’t even own any stock.

The poor are resilient, we graduated from the school of hard knocks and that’s prepared us for recessions and pandemics. We are too busy making ends meet to waste time contemplating suicide.

If we survived the Trump administration, we can survive the coronavirus pandemic, and the only light at the end of the tunnel for us is that Trump’s bumbling and stumbling response to the coronavirus will lead to his defeat in the general election.

Joe Biden may be as mentally impaired as Trump due to his advanced age, but he’s not a sociopath and things are bound to improve for all people, even the working poor, under his administration.

Kirstie Alley Tweets Her Support for Trump’s Coronavirus Response

Dear Mr. President, @realDonaldTrump

I wanted to thank you for ur recent decorum, sincerity, & care towards us. You’re taking charge & leading in a manner needed & wanted for this country. I highly commend you for ur boundless energy & willingness to solve problems. Thank you

Kirstie Alley

Long before the coronavirus pandemic most Americans, as well as most of Hollywood, were repulsed by Donald Trump’s ignorance, racism, buffoonery and incompetence.

Among the general population only white evangelicals are enamored with their false messiah who is the antithesis of family values and the teachings of Jesus Christ. In Hollywood the stable genius is universally reviled, only has-beens the likes of Dean Cain, Jon Voight and Roseanne Barr are enthralled by the populist con man.

You can now add Kirstie Alley’s name to the short list of Hollywood stars who publicly defend Trump. Yes, Alley is still alive, she still hasn’t fallen victim to a stroke or a heart attack due to her morbid obesity.

Alley’s tweet reveals that she can’t distinguish real life from fantasy, the man that she describes in her tweet is a movie version of a handsome, eloquent and intelligent president who saves America from an alien invasion, it bears no resemblance to the orange baboon who is leading American to ruin and damnation.

Alley’s pro-Trump tweet shouldn’t surprise anyone, after all she’s a Scientologist who worships at the altar of L Ron Hubbard.

CNN and MSNBC Should Stop Televising Trump’s Daily Coronavirus Press Conference

If Bozo the Clown pontificated on the coronavirus pandemic his nonsense wouldn’t be dismissed out-of-hand if he was standing behind a lectern bearing the presidential seal.

By any measure, by any standard, Donald Trump is a blithering idiot who knows next to nothing about science or medicine, nevertheless when he speaks during his daily coronavirus briefing, he commands our attention by virtue of his office.

Since he is unable to hold any MAGA rallies in the age of the coronavirus, Trump is using his daily press conference to energize his base. He touts misinformation about drugs not approved by the FDA, offers inaccurate and overly optimistic assessments of the progress of testing and vaccine research, and generally does what he excels at, lying like a dog.

I tune out the stable genius whenever he speaks on any subject, but unfortunately his rosy outlook on the coronavirus pandemic encourages people, mainly his base, to be less careful with their personal hygiene and social distancing.

It’s time for CNN and MSNBC to stop airing his daily news conference, it does more harm than good to provide a master of propaganda with free air time. Fox News, the Trump’s administration propaganda arm, should be the only news outlet airing his deceitful rhetoric.

Trump After Hearing of Romney’s Isolation Due to Coronavirus Exposure: ‘Gee, That’s Too Bad’

Ideally In the age of the coronavirus all politicians put aside their differences and work in concert to defeat the virus that attacks all of us indiscriminately. We have seen the Democratic governors of New York and California step up to the plate and work in close coordination with President Donald Trump.

Utah Senator Mitt Romney announced on Sunday that he would self-quarantine after fellow Senator Rand Paul announced he had tested positive for COVID-19. There is no love lost between Romney and Trump, the Utah senator was the only Senate Republican to break from the party and vote to convict Trump on abuse of power after the Senate impeachment trial.

How did Trump react to Romney’s self-quarantine? Did he disregard their long history of mutual enmity in order to present a united front to the country? Did he express any sympathy or concern? Are you freaking kidding me, we’re talking about the stable genius!

Trump couldn’t conceal his glee when a reporter informed him that Romney was in isolation at a coronavirus news conference. “Gee. That’s too bad”, replied the sorry excuse for the comforter-in-chief. The reporter asked Trump if he could “detect sarcasm” in his voice. “No,” the pathological liar answered. “None whatsoever.”

Romney is 73, and his wife, 70, has MS, and needless to say, they are especially vulnerable to the virus, and they need our sympathy and concern, and could do without sarcasm and hatred.
