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.”

Wikipedia

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.

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.

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.

Trump’s Retweet of ‘White Power’ Video Shows He is Doubling Down on Racism

President Donald Trump’s disastrous mismanagement of the coronavirus pandemic and his failure to unite Americans in the aftermath of George Floyd’s murder has eroded his support among suburban women, senior citizens and independent voters.

Trump has responded by doubling down on racism in a desperate attempt to keep his racist white evangelical supporters from deserting him.

Charlottesville taught us that the racist-in-chief thinks that white supremacists and Nazis are fine people, now he is calling them “great people.”

On Sunday Trump tweeted approvingly of a video depicting one of his supporters screaming “White Power”, not one but twice. He retweeted the video featuring the racist chant with this message:

“Thank you to the great people of The Villages. “

Trump later deleted the toxic tweet and the White House said he had not heard “the one statement” on the video. Trump is so lazy and impulsive that I wouldn’t be surprised if he posted the minutes-long video to his 80 million followers without doing due diligence and making sure it didn’t contain any offensive comments. But the “White Power” screams came only eight seconds into the video, and there’s no way in hell he wasn’t aware of his racist supporter screaming “White Power.”

Trump is no longer bothering with dog whistles, his polices and rhetoric are a clarion call for racism. Trump is a blatant racist, and anyone who supports him is a racist.

Trump’s Refusal to Wear a Mask Will Result in Death of His Campaign

During his entire tenure, Trump has suffered many self-inflicted wounds, but his mistakes and irresponsible actions during the coronavirus pandemic and the racial unrest following the murder of George Floyd have assured that he will be a one-term president.

Trump’s chaotic response to the COVID-19 pandemic is best illustrated by his self-defeating resistance to donning a mask. His stubborn stance, mimicked by his base undercuts efforts by public health officials to flatten the curve.

Not wearing a mask has become a sign of allegiance to the science-denying commander-in-chief, and his sycophants look askance at anyone wearing a mask in public. If Trump’s followers were as eager to put on a mask as they are to wear a MAGA hat we would make progress against the spread of the coronavirus.

By not wearing a mask Trump is playing with fire, he’s setting a bad example that will result in non-compliance by his supporters, and the spread of the virus that will in turn impede efforts to revive the economy.

But Trump’s greatest gamble is that his penchant for not wearing a mask will result in him being infected with the coronavirus. A morbidly obese septuagenarian with a history of heart disease is at great risk of dying from the virus. Even if he catches the coronavirus and survives it will be a death blow to his reelection chances. The optics of the stable genius smitten by the coronavirus would be a metaphor of how he has completely screwed up his response to the pandemic.

White Evangelical Pastors Vow to Defend Statues of White Surfer Dude Jesus

“A group of evangelical pastors gathered at Seattle’s CHOP zone earlier this week to pray and declare that they will defend houses of worship and statues of Jesus after activists called for tearing them down amid Black Lives Matter protests.”

Fox News
White evangelicals seem to be unfamiliar with the basic tenets of their faith, the first of the Ten Commandments prohibits making any statues of Jesus or any other heavenly being:

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

Evangelicals should be leading the charge to topple these graven images, the blond surfer dude Jesus statues are a sacrilegious abomination, a historical misrepresentation and an aesthetical nightmare.

But I’m not surprised that white evangelicals worship their white Jesus statues, after all they worship an orange anti-Christ.

The historical dark brown or black Jesus would be appalled at the spectacle of evangelicals defending these vile statues.

Instead of defending statues of Jesus, evangelicals should be defending the Gospel message of peace, unity and love. But if these reprobates embrace an amoral buffoon who is the antithesis of everything that the Bible teaches, I’m not surprised they are defending graven images.

Trump’s Comeback Tulsa MAGA rally an Unmitigated Disaster. Humiliated Beyond Belief!

A MAGA rally is a toxic mixture of revival tent meeting, KKK rally and carnival sideshow, presided over by an orange buffoon who is treated like the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

The dregs of society are drawn to these grand spectacles like flies are drawn to a steaming pile of dung. The rednecks, white evangelicals, white supremacists and assorted riff-raff who attend these political rallies are energized and emboldened in their hateful and racist ideology as they feed off the dog whistles and red meat their fearless leader so promiscuously dishes out. There’s a sucker born every minute and all these marks consider it a religious obligation to attend these festivals of intolerance and racism.

The racist-in-chief is also energized by his MAGA shit shows, they are oxygen for is inflated ego and he views them as evidence of his political potency. Trump is lambasted by pundits, educators, theologians and everyday people who are repulsed by his vulgarity, vanity and racism, but he knows that at a MAGA rally he will be treated like a rock God.

Trump was desperate to get back on the campaign trail, coronavirus pandemic be damned. The amoral authoritarian calculated that he could pretend the crisis was over and his science-denying evangelical base would still flock to his rallies.

Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale bragged that over one million people had registered to attend Trump’s first rally held during the pandemic. In fact, he was so confident that the 19,000 arena would sell out, that he built an outdoor stage to handle the overflow crowd.

Imagine Trump’s disappointment and humiliation when there were literally only a couple of dozen people meandering around the outside stage, and only 6,200 supporters inside the arena. I’m surprised that morbidly obese charlatan didn’t suffer a heart attack as he gazed on empty row after empty row of blue seats.

Trump may peddle the fake news that the pandemic is over, but his multitude of MAGA-heads had enough sense not to attend an indoor event where they would be packed like sardines, especially considering that the coronavirus is surging in Tulsa.

Trump’s comeback rally was a disaster of Biblical proportions and we know that he doesn’t read the holy book but maybe he will read the writing on the wall: Americans are sick and tired of you and your ever-shrinking racist base won’t be enough to save your racist ass.
