OK. I realize that now is not the time for blame, and finger pointing. I get it. But as I am sitting here, laid off from my job and voluntarily sheltering in place, I just read a quote which has left me so enraged that I have to say something. So, here goes.
“I view it as -- in a sense -- of wartime president”
Narcissist to the core.
Donald Trump is to wartime president
as Jeffrey Dahmer is to master chef
Actually that comparison is totally unfair, to Dahmer. Dahmer is only responsible for the deaths of 17 people.
Trump has bragged that he could get away with killing someone in the middle of 5th Avenue and his supporters wouldn’t mind. What about the killing of tens of thousands (if we’re lucky)?
Here are some words from Republican strategist Rick Wilson:
“They’re learning that you can get away with a chain of scams, business failures, bankruptcies, and branding disasters and win the presidency but still fail utterly as a president and a person. It took a global pandemic, the bursting of the Fed-fueled stock market bubble, and an opponent Trump can’t face. It doesn’t read Twitter, watch Fox, or respond to derisive nicknames.
When tested by the fire of crisis, Trump showed us what he’s always been; a weak, spoiled, intellectually vacant conman who has stumbled through a life of betrayal and failure papered over by bullsh*t and public relations.
Trump has failed every single test of his leadership in this crisis, and it has destroyed the economy, left Americans locked in quarantine indefinitely and will cost possibly millions of lives.”
If this is war, then Trump’s actions are war crimes.
