Republican Candidates Risk Losing by Defending Trump

“Earlier this month, the Senate Republican campaign arm circulated a memo with shocking advice to GOP candidates on responding to coronavirus: “Don’t defend Trump, other than the China Travel Ban — attack China.”

The Trump campaign was furious.

On Monday — just days after POLITICO first reported the existence of the memo — Trump political adviser Justin Clark told NRSC executive director Kevin McLaughlin that any Republican candidate who followed the memo’s advice shouldn’t expect the active support of the reelection campaign and risked losing the support of Republican voters.”

Politico

Donald Trump expects unquestioned loyalty from Republican senators, and even a nuanced criticism of his policies results in automatic condemnation on Twitter.

Trump’s dementia has taken a toll on his mental acuity, but he remembers every perceived slight and he’s not one to forgive and forget.

Therefore, Trump was outraged at the Senate Republican campaign arm for circulated a memo advising Republican Senators running for reelection not to defend him.

It should be noted that it’s not unusual for senators and congresspeople running for reelection to distance themselves from the incumbent president of their own party. Even popular presidents, like Obama, make mistakes during their tenure and politicians usually run touting their own merits.

Trump’s base will remain faithful to their false messiah, come hell or high water. But after Trump’s disastrous management of the coronavirus pandemic, I expect more than a few Republican senators to practice social distancing from the president.

Trump is a stinking pile of dung and he’s made such a mess out the coronavirus pandemic that fewer and fewer Republicans will risk losing their seats by defending the indefensible.

What Will Trump Do When He Leaves Office?

President Donald Trump’s days in power are numbered, to his great disappointment he’s not a dictator for life, and one day he will leave the white House, whether it happens in January 2021 or four years from now.

The functional-illiterate buffoon isn’t going to spend his last years on this Earth writing his memoirs, he’ll pay someone to write his autobiography.

He won’t while away his years in retirement planning his presidential library, as long as the building has a huge golden Trump sign he really doesn’t care about the architectural style or the materials and records it will hold.

He won’t become the elder statesman of the Republican Party, because he doesn’t give a rat’s ass about the GOP’s ideology or future success and Republicans won’t want anything to do with him when he’s no longer in power.

The only thing we know for sure is that Trump isn’t leaving the spotlight until his ticker finally gives out. He might make a return to reality TV or possibly start his own cable news network.

He will definitely not terminate his Twitter account, he will attack his successor on his favorite social media platform, whether it’s Biden next year or Mike Pence four years from now.

We won’t be free from Trump’s big mouth until the Grim Reaper drags his obese stinking corpse to hell.

Trump Wants to Paint the Border Wall Black

“President Donald Trump has requested the border wall, one of his signature campaign promises, be painted black, a proposal that could cost hundreds of millions of dollars, according to a new report.

The Washington Post reported Wednesday Trump had ordered the border wall to be painted black in order to make it look more imposing and to make it too hot to touch during the summer.

According to estimates obtained by the Post, the cost of painting the wall black would range from $500 million for acrylic paint to over $3 billion for a powder coating on the wall.

USA Today

Nero fiddled while Rome burned and if it weren’t political suicide Trump would be golfing while the coronavirus pandemic destroys our economy and kills tens of thousands of Americans.

Since he can’t indulge in his favorite pastime the stable genius is pondering painting the border wall black to make it look more imposing and to make it too hot to touch during the summer.

At a time then millions of Americans are jobless and struggling to pay the rent Trump wants to waste millions, perhaps billions, to paint the border wall black. That money would be better spent providing food, medicine and clothing to the needy.

To those running away from persecution in their countries and seeking a better life in America, it doesn’t matter if the wall is black, silver or neon pink. They will climb over the wall, or tunnel under it, regardless of the damn color of the obstacle that’s keeping them from the land of freedom and opportunity.

I’m reminded of the song “Paint it Black” by one of Trump’s favorite rock bands, The Rolling Stones:

 I look inside myself and see my heart is black

I see my red door, I must have it painted black

Maybe then I’ll fade away and not have to face the facts

It’s not easy facing up, when your whole world is black

Trump, your heart is pitch black and I’m not surprised you want to paint everything black, but your days are numbered. The black cloud that hovers over America will disappear when we kick you out of office.

Paula Reid Responds to Trump Comparing Her to Donna Reed

“In an interview on Monday with the New York Post, President Donald Trump was asked about his contentious relationship with the media — particularly CBS News’ Paula Reid. Here’s how he responded:

‘It wasn’t Donna Reed, I can tell you that. … Paula Reid, she’s sitting there and I say, ‘How angry. I mean, What’s the purpose?’ They’re not even tough questions, but you see the attitude of these people, it’s like incredible.”

CNN

The septuagenarian president’s cultural references predate the hip hop generation and sometimes even the rock and roll generation. Trump’s campaign slogan in 2016 was “Make America Great Again” and in the midst of the race The New York Times asked him when the last time he believed America was great, and he answered:

“I would say during the 1940s and the late ’40s and ’50s we started getting, we were not pushed around, we were respected by everybody, we had just won a war, we were pretty much doing what we had to do, yeah around that period.”

Trump believes the golden age of America was the 50’s when our country was demographically and culturally homogeneous. On the silver screen all of the matinee idols were white and on the small screen all of the programs featured all-white casts.

Paula Reid famously clashed with the stable genius a couple of times during the White House coronavirus task force briefings and she is still living rent free in his mind. Trump unfavorably compared Reid to the iconic TV star who played housewife Donna Stone on “The Donna Reed Show” that ran on ABC from 1958-1966.

You are correct Trump, Paula Reid is no Donna Reid or June Cleaver, she’s more like a Roseanne Conner or Murphy Brown. Reid isn’t going to just look pretty and stylish like Donna Reed and remain quiet in deference to her male colleagues. Like the fictional investigative journalist Murphy Brown, she’s going to ask you hard and probing questions.

I will end this essay with Reid’s tweet in response to Trump’s insult:

President Trump tells @nypost I am nothing like 50’s American archetypal mom Donna Reed.  Fact-check: True.

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!

Being a Trump Speechwriter is the Most Frustrating Job in the World

Being a speechwriter for Donald Trump must be the most frustrating job in the world.

To begin with the functional-illiterate Trump believes he’s the most eloquent and articulate speaker in the world and he won’t hesitate to stray from the words written by those he considers his intellectual inferiors.

The stable genius doesn’t care about impressing pundits, politicians or college professors, he cares only about pandering to his base and he won’t think twice about disregarding the words written for him and speaking redneck to drive his followers into a frenzy.

A moron should never ad-lib, but that’s what Trump does best and I’m sure that his speeches bear little resemblance to the ones that were written by his speechwriters. Trump has a tendency to go off on a tangent and pontificate on subjects he knows nothing about.

Writing a speech for the fucking moron is like writing a speech for a dyslexic person with poor vision. I imagine no Trump speechwriter brags to his loved ones, “I wrote that speech” after the president delivers one of his tradmark incoherent and rambling speeches.

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.

Can You Imagine Trump Revealing That Extraterrestrials Are Real?

On Monday, the Pentagon released three videos depicting UFO’s executing flying maneuvers that defy the laws of physics. Some people are wondering if the government is preparing us for the greatest reveal in human history: extraterrestrials are real and they’ve made contact with us.

When our president is suggests that injecting or swallowing disinfectants may kill the coronavirus, naturally we all hope there’s intelligent life somewhere in the universe.

According to Wikipedia The Milky Way contains between 100 and 400 billion stars and at least 100 billion planets, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to deduce that there’s probably intelligent extraterrestrial beings.

I’m praying that extraterrestrials will never make contact with us, because if an alien says “take me to your leader” and we introduce him to grotesquely obese Donald Trump with his urine-colored hair and mouth that looks like a sphincter, he may just destroy our planet.

I don’t think the Pentagon has proof that extraterrestrials have visited our planet, because Trump wouldn’t be able to keep his mouth shut. If Trump had proof that extraterrestrials are real can you imagine him at his next press conference:

My fellow Americans, I will soon make the most important announcement in history. No king, president or dictator has ever made such a huge and mindboggling proclamation as I will make sometime before the election. When I make this bigly revelation, I will win in the biggest landslide in American history.  

According to The New York Post the Grotesquely Obese Trump is so Busy He Doesn’t Have Time to Eat Lunch

Donald Trump could probably spare himself from an ulcer or two and reduce his risk of a stroke or heart attack if he didn’t read the New York Time. Unfortunately, for him the Times prints all the news that’s fit to print, including the myriad mistakes and missteps of the utterly corrupt and inept Trump administration.

Recently the newspaper of record printed a story that detailed Trump’s daily routine during the coronavirus pandemic – including the fact that he “arrives in the Oval Office these days as late as noon when he is usually in a sour mood after his morning marathon of television.”

Trump immediately responded on his medium of choice, Twitter:

“I work from early in the morning until late at night, haven’t left the White House in many months (except to launch Hospital Ship Comfort) in order to take care of Trade Deals, Military Rebuilding etc., and then I read a phony story in the failing @nytimes about my work …”

True to form Trump’s sycophants in the White House immediately lied to cover up the fact that their boss is a lazy liar. These “yes men” spoke to the other major New York newspaper, The New York Post, that has only a fraction of the credibility of the New York Times. Here’s what these stooges told the Post:

New chief of staff Mark Meadows maintains that his biggest concern in his new job is making sure Trump gets some time to get a quick bite to eat. An unnamed source said that “there are times when lunch isn’t even a thought. A lot of time there’s either no time for lunch or there is 10 minutes for lunch.”

The stable genius spends his morning hours indulging in his favorite executive pastime of watching the morning cable news shows and snacking on junk food. By the time he walks into the Oval Office he is full of piss and vinegar from enduring the objective reporting on CNN and MSNBC that accurately depicts him as a corrupt and feckless buffoon.

The reporting of the New York Times is spot on, all you have to do is take one look at the grotesquely obese Trump to discern that the lazy POS spends all his time watching TV, and that he never misses any breakfast, lunch or dinner.
