The holidays are over and Donald Trump is back to work – tweeting his utter nonsense and trying to sell it as truth.
With public opinion turning against him, Robert Mueller breathing down his neck, a blue tsunami that will effectively neuter his efforts to further deconstruct our democracy headed his way come November, Trump has taken to his favorite medium in an attempt to deflect attention from his mounting problems and the grievous harm he has been inflicting on our beloved country.
Behold his tweets, which started before dawn – you know he’s sweating.
As everyone knows, Trump is a big fan of human rights – when he sees an opportunity to take the focus off of his human rights violations. He’s especially concerned with the rights of the people of Iran. Or maybe he’s taking a cue from the George W. Bush playbook when that Republican president lied his way into the Iraq war.
Of course, Trump couldn’t resist taking another shot at Hillary Clinton, but this one is so … well, I just have two words for #TraitorTrump: #Flynn #Papadopolous. More to follow as the Mueller investigation proceeds.
Next up was his ridiculous wall. Trump conveniently neglects to tell the American people that it’s their dime, because he can’t force Mexico to pay for it. Meanwhile, in his effort to make America great again (we WERE great, but since he’s taken office, not so much anymore in the eyes of the world), our corn farmers just got the shaft due to his assinine stance with our neighbor to the south.
Defending that trainwreck of a #taxscam, the Orange Scourge touted the pay raises being handed out. He neglected to mention that CEOs are the main beneficiaries or that very little will trickle down to the working American. So when you see that puny extra $20 in your paycheck sometime in February, remember that those millionaire/billionaire CEOs will use $20 bills as toilet paper because they’ll be rolling in so much dough, they won’t know what else to do with it. Meanwhile, the steelworkers Trump promised to protect are being laid off, and the brunt will be felt by states that voted for Trump in 2016. Oh yeah, remember that big announcement how AT&T was handing out $1,000 bonuses? Yeah, well, workers at AT&T have been laid off and more layoffs are coming.
Next up for the Tweeter In Chief was South Korea, but things there are looking a bit grim for Trump. Overtures from the north to the south look to be squeezing the Orange Scourge out of the mix and may throw a monkey wrench into Trump’s plan to wipe North Korea off the face of the planet. But as Trump tweeted, we will see. You know, when someone like Kim Jong Un has more common sense than the American president, we are in deep sh*t.
I’ll bet you didn’t know that Trump is able to keep aircraft from falling from the sky! But according to him – he is!
Then, Trump was on to the New York Times. He was so excited he had to do TWO tweets! His talk of impartiality is laughable, given that his preference for news is Fox and Friends and The National Enquirer. He really doesn’t like it when news organizations tell the truth!
In a truly jaw dropping display of insanity, dementia, and delusion, the Idiot-In-Chief predicted that Hispanics and DACA activists will reject the Democrats in favor of him. What next? Will the Black Lives Matter movement erect a monument to him because he’s displayed such empathy for their cause?
After that it was veterans health care. The system he’s seeking to privatize and make inaccessible to all but those who have the funds to pay for quality care.
After that, poor Donnie was all done in and needed his afternoon nap. When he wakes up, – who knows?
In the immortal words of Bob Dylan:
Come mothers and fathers throughout the land
And don’t criticize what you can’t understand
Your sons and your daughters are beyond your command.
Your old road is rapidly aging.
Please get out of the new one if you can’t lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin’
2018 is the year of the #BlueWave #Resist #Volunteer
