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.

The Coronavirus Won’t Disappear Until Donald Trump Disappears

The coronavirus pandemic has exposed the cluelessness and fecklessness of Donald Trump. The American public doesn’t expect our president to be a rocket scientist or a brain surgeon, but they do expect him to have the humility and modicum of intelligence to defer to physicians and scientists during a pandemic. The president should serve as the comforter-in-charge by making frequent press conferences to demonstrate that he’s on top of the crisis, and the public doesn’t have to worry because he’s following the advice of his medical team.

Trump has utterly failed in his role as comforter-in chief and most Americans are scared to death with a racist buffoon in charge during a pandemic. Only his evangelical base is comforted by the contradictory statements and tweets emanating from the White House.

A con artist learns to speak the lexicon that appeals to his marks, and Trump is an expert speaking the language of evangelicals. During the beginning of the pandemic Trump insisted that the disease was contained and that it was not a threat. “It’s going to disappear”, he told the American public on February 28th. “One day it’s like a miracle, it will disappear.” These ignorant words were received gratefully by evangelicals who value faith over science and empirical facts.

Rational Americans know that the virus isn’t eradicated or slowed down by thoughts, prayers and miracles. Without practical measures to slow it down, covid-19 will continue to spread exponentially for months. The spread can be slowed down if we practice good hygiene, avoid public spaces and generally limit our movement.

This pandemic may last for many more months, it’s imperative that we kick the racist buffoon out of office in November. Joe Biden isn’t perfect by any means, but he isn’t a megalomaniac narcissist, and he can see us through this pandemic.

I’m Voting for the Sweet Senile Old Man (Biden) Over the Evil and Deranged Old Man (Trump)

The diverse Democratic filed of a gazillion and one presidential hopefuls has been whittled down to two male septuagenarians and one of them, Joe Biden 77 or Bernie Sanders 78, will face off against the incumbent Republican septuagenarian, Donald Trump.

Biden has lost a step or two and he has the mental acuity of the crazy uncle who’s been locked in the attic for the last few years. Trump is crazier than a shithouse rat and it’s impossible to tell if his loony behavior is mostly the result of dementia or sheer stupidity. Sanders still seems as sharp as a tack, although he’s the stereotypical old codger who complains when somebody steps on the grass in any of his three houses.

It doesn’t look like Sanders will have the opportunity to complain when a reporter walks on the White House lawn, he’s too far behind Biden to catch up. It’s going to be Trump vs Biden and I’m pulling for the mentally slow Biden over the demented Trump, but it’s a crying shame that we have to choose between two old white men.

With Biden emerging as the likely Democratic nominee, Trump has once again focused his fire on “Sleepy Joe” and he’s launched a concerted campaign to depict the 77-year-old Democrat as senile and out-of-touch with his electorate and reality itself.

Biden has been a gaffe machine for decades, but in his 2020 presidential campaign he’s making a gaffe practically every time he opens his mouth. For example, Biden referred to Super Tuesday as “Super Thursday” and he declared that he was running for the Senate and asserted that 150 million Americans had been killed by gun violence since 2007. In other words, Biden is giving Trump plenty of material to paint him as a senile old fool.

Needless to say, Trump has made even more gaffes than Biden, but the president is the master of projection and he’s not going to quit portraying Biden as senile.

I hope Biden wins because a sweet senile old man is better than an evil deranged old man. I just hope Biden chooses a young woman, preferably of color, as his running mate.  

Trump’s Response to the Coronavirus Pandemic is Criminally Negligent

Donald Trump is the most incompetent, ineffectual and clueless president in history and it comes as not surprise that he has botched his response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The stable genius default mode is to ignore an unpleasant reality, and at first, he ignored the coronavirus outbreak. After hundreds of thousands of people had returned from Wuhan, China, where the outbreak began Trump imposed limited travel restrictions on China.

After weeks of twiddling his thumbs on Twitter Trump finally appointed a coronavirus czar, the utterly unqualified Mike Pence, the same moron who botched the response to an HIV outbreak in Indiana when he was governor.

Trump believes he is an expert on every subject under the sun, he knows more about modern warfare than his generals and he knows more about addressing a pandemic than physicians and he’s not shy about sharing his knowledge on the subject. So, he spouts lies and nonsense such as coronavirus is no big deal, everyone who wants a test can get one and the virus has been contained.

Trump isn’t taking any special precautions himself and he continues to hold MAGA rallies, even though he is the poster boy, or should I say “poster old man” for the person must likely to succumb to the virus.

Trump’s response to the coronavirus pandemic has been pathetic and his foolish rhetoric is likely to cause his supporters not to take any precautions and that’s going to get a lot of people killed.

Coronavirus Prayer: MAGA Rally In an Empty Arena

“According to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium and Marc Stein of the New York Times, the league has reached out to teams regarding the possibility of playing games without fans and media in attendance.”

Bleacher Report

Already soccer games have been played in Europe in empty stadiums due to concerns of the coronavirus, so it’s not unlikely that NBA games may be playing without fans and media in attendance.

It’s not just athletic contests, but any event that attracts huge crowds like concerts and lectures are in danger of being held without fans and media in attendance.

An NBA game without the noise and excitement of fans would be a sad spectacle, but a MAGA campaign rally without the racist chant of cultists encouraging the toxic rhetoric of their false Messiah wouldn’t be such a bad thing.

Imagine a Trump campaign rally that would be livestreamed without a live audience:

Trump is incapable of delivering a speech without exaggerating the size of the crowd. Trump would urge the folks watching his rally on the Internet not to believe their lying eyes and declare that the event was in danger of being shut down by Fire Marshalls because there were so many people in attendance.

Trump loves having reporters in attendance because they are the perfect foil, a MAGA rally without CNN reporters would be a dull affair.

The coronavirus has deleterious effects on the economy and social fabric of our country, but a MAGA rally without an audience would be a wonderful silver lining.

Super Tuesday Makes it Clear It’s Going to be Biden vs Trump

“Joe Biden dug two big holes on Super Tuesday and each of them came with a name attached. Bernie Sanders and President Donald Trump are both staring into their political graves.”

Politico

Our racially, ethnically and religiously diverse democracy now is forced with choosing from three white old men as the next president. It could be argued that this trio of septuagenarians is staring into their graves in a literal sense, and the winner may not survive his term.

In this reality TV era when a racist and ignorant con man who in a normal world wouldn’t be elected dogcatcher is elected president of the United States it may seem like conventional political wisdom no longer applies.

But the 2020 presidential Democratic primary proved that some political realities are as immutable as the laws of physics, and the basic law of Democratic politics is that a presidential candidate can’t win without the enthusiastic support of African Americans.

The lack of support from black Democrats doomed the candidacies of Mayor Pete, Senator Amy Klobuchar, Senator Elizabeth Warren and even the campaigns of black Senators Cory Booker and Kamala Harris. You don’t have to be a political analyst or a soothsayer to predict that Sanders’ campaign is doomed because he’s been unable to make inroads in the black community.

On Super Tuesday Joe Biden, with the help of an army of black people, dug a hole big enough to contain the bloated corpse of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders.

Trump feared Biden so much that he risked his presidency and ended up getting impeached over his campaign to bribe the president of Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Trump’s foolish gambit failed and it’s going to be Biden vs Trump in the general election, and I’m betting that normalcy and decency will prevail.

On Super Tuesday Tulsi Gabbard and Elizabeth Warren Were Humiliated Beyond Belief

At the start of the Democratic nominating marathon the field featured the most diverse candidates in history, including five formidable female contenders: Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Sen. Kamala Harris, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

The traditional first four contests and Super Tuesday have winnowed the field, and there are now only two females left in the race, Sen. Warren and Rep. Tulsi. The senior senator from Massachusetts doesn’t even qualify as a speed bump for Sanders and Biden as they continue racing toward the finish, and the congresswoman from Hawaii is nothing but an asterisk.

On Super Tuesday Warren and Tulsi were humiliated beyond belief, but they are both in denial and have yet to drop out of the race.

Warren didn’t just lose; she was humiliated beyond redemption. She finished third in her home state of Massachusetts and won just a handful of delegates in the 14 states that cast ballots on Tuesday.

Tulsi registered as a blip in all of the Super Tuesday primaries and she managed to snag only one delegate in American Samoa where she was born. How can she justify staying in the race when she lost to billionaire Mike Bloomberg in American Samoa?

Tulsi was never more than an asterisk and she won’t even be a footnote when the history of the 2020 campaign is written, but Warren was an intelligent, inspiring and tireless campaigner who briefly caught fire in the summer of 2019 but then sizzled out.

Regardless who wins, Sanders or Biden, it’s almost guaranteed that the vice-presidential nominee will be a female, but it won’t be Tulsi or Warren. I won’t waste any time explaining why the asterisk aka Tulsi doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of being chosen.

Sanders won’t choose Warren; the socialist needs to balance the ticket with a moderate nominee. What would Warren bring to the ticket anyway, besides the .001 percent of the electorate who are faux Native Americans? Biden won’t select Warren as his running mate, there is no emotional or ideological connect between the two. Biden is extremely grateful to African Americans for their loyalty and support and he will probably anoint a black woman like Kamala Harris or Stacey Abrams as his running mate.
