Biden Ahead in the Polls!
Biden holds a 10-point lead over Trump among registered voters in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll.
Trump’s overall job approval rating is back under water, 45-53% among all Americans, with a seven-point rise in disapproval since late March.
Trump's rating specifically for handling the outbreak is a nearly identical 46-53%, with approval down 5 percentage points and disapproval up 8 in the past two months.
About 6 in 10 don't see Trump as honest and trustworthy, don't think he understands the problems of average Americans and don't think he has the personality and temperament for the job.
Americans trust Biden over Trump to direct the federal government's efforts to control the spread of the coronavirus, 50-42%.
Among those who say the economy is in bad shape, 70% back Biden.
In all, the presidential contest stands at 53-40%, Biden-Trump.
THESE ARE THE COWARDS:
- Derek Chauvin
- Thomas Lane
- Tou Thao
- J. Alexander Kueng
Chauvin had previously shot one suspect, was involved in the fatal shooting of another, and received at least 17 complaints during his nearly two decades with the Minneapolis Police Department, according to police records and archived news reports. Chauvin is currently charged with third degree murder and second degree manslaughter in Floyd’s death.
Four armed police officers against one unarmed, handcuffed black man! You put the numbers together, folks. How many times have we seen such a scenario of racism and rage play out by out-of-control, power happy police officers?
Chaos spread across the country Friday night into Saturday morning as thousands of protesters descended onto the city streets of Minneapolis, Detroit, New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., Fort Wayne and Chicago. In New York, protesters blocked the Brooklyn Bridge. In Los Angeles, a protester crashed through a police cruiser with a skateboard. In Atlanta, protesters sprayed the CNN headquarters with graffiti saying, “no cops,” “f*** Trump,” and “#Love.”
Trump’s threatening response via Twitter was “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.” Twitter flagged Trump’s tweet for ‘glorifying violence.’ As a result of his tweet being flagged, Trump reached for his crayons and signed an executive order aimed at increasing the ability of the government to regulate social media platforms.
"I especially want to pose this question to older people who have seen this before in this country, who have lived this nightmare of race riots already, in the '60s and '70s, '80s, now. Is this who you want leading us? A president who clearly and intentionally inflames violence in the middle of a riot to show how tough he is? I don't care what you are, right, left, Republican, Democrat, something else. Enough is enough. We've got to vote this guy out already." (Jimmy Kimmel, on his 5/29/20 talk show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!)
Congratulations to Twitter! Now DELETE Trump’s Account!
Trump was glorifying violence once again with his tweet saying, “when the looting starts, the shooting starts” in regard to the ongoing unrest in Minneapolis following the death of George Floyd. Trump’s use of the phrase "when the looting starts, the shooting starts" mirrors language used by a Miami police chief in the late 1960s in the wake of riots. Its use was immediately condemned by a wide array of individuals, from historians to members of rival political campaigns. So Twitter very appropriately flagged his tweet. Congratulations, Twitter.
This is the second time this week Twitter has taken action against Trump's tweets. It previously flagged two of Trump's tweets about mail-in voting in California, saying Trump's tweets were misleading about elections. Out of spite and vengeance, the bully Twitter Toddler responded to the flags by issuing an executive order targeting social media companies. The executive order, intended to get the federal government more involved in regulating social media sites like Twitter, won't accomplish much and would be bad public policy, according to many experts on the law.
Vice President Joe Biden's campaign called Trump's action an "extreme abuse of power" and that Trump is crafting policy for personal benefit.
Trump has lost his own court battles over online speech. In 2017, Columbia University’s Knight First Amendment Institute successfully sued the president after he blocked multiple Twitter users for criticizing his policies. An appeals court unanimously agreed that Trump’s actions violated the First Amendment.
Trump's executive order was "born unconstitutional" because it amounts to retaliation against Twitter for calling out his misleading tweets. Some of the provisions also raise constitutional concerns because they appear to punish the companies for decisions protected under the First Amendment.
"The First Amendment protects those words that Twitter added to Trump’s tweets. It means Twitter can say that there are additional facts that readers should consider," said Prof. Eric Goldman, who teaches Internet law at Santa Clara University. The First Amendment also protects this web site that you’re currently reading.
Trump told reporters he would gladly quit Twitter if the mainstream media weren't biased against him.
Our message for Trump: If you’re so angry at Twitter, then go ahead and delete your Twitter account! Do America the favor, or else shut up!
The Braggart Is Silent on 100,000 Deaths On His Watch
Trump, the braggart and the worst president in all of American history, was uncharacteristically silent on America reaching the bleak milestone of 100,000 Covid-19 deaths in three months on his watch — no special commemoration, no moment of silence, no collective sharing of grief.
Instead, Trump’s most direct comments on the number came in a pair of tweets Tuesday, amounting to a preemptive rebuttal. “For all of the political hacks out there, if I hadn’t done my job well, & early, we would have lost 1 1/2 to 2 Million People, as opposed to the 100,000 plus that looks like will be the number. That’s 15 to 20 times more than we will lose,” he wrote. (Editorial note: This idiot can’t even compose a grammatically correct sentence.)
Dan Pfeiffer, a former senior adviser to President Barack Obama said, “You would think a normal human being endowed with normal amounts of decency and empathy would take a moment when 100,000 people who are the citizens of the country of which he is president have died. But that is not something that has crossed Trump’s mind.”
Instead, Trump focused much of his time in recent days on matters other than the coronavirus. He spent the Memorial Day weekend golfing both Saturday and Sunday, as well as attacking rivals in deeply personal and at times sexist terms.
The Democratic National Committee was quick to criticize Trump’s handling of the pandemic, saying, “As the country approaches the grim milestone of 100,000 deaths, Trump spent his weekend golfing, tweeting wild conspiracy theories, downplaying the virus, and promoting unproven treatments. Now, instead of mourning the deaths, Trump is praising himself and declaring ‘100,000 plus’ deaths a job well done.”
Finally, this morning, a day late and a dollar short, after he was embarrassed into it by yesterday’s press coverage, Trump finally released the following statement on Twitter: "We have just reached a very sad milestone with the coronavirus pandemic deaths reaching 100,000. To all of the families & friends of those who have passed, I want to extend my heartfelt sympathy & love for everything that these great people stood for & represent. God be with you!"
Trump would be nothing if he wasn’t a pathetic loser, both as a president and as a human being.
Over 100,500 Americans Have Died from Covid-19
Today is a sad day. Today the death toll from the coronavirus hit 100,572 in just three months — the highest of any country in the world.
Trump’s refusal to act early in the spread of the virus is a major cause of these deaths.
In 2018, shortly after being told that a flu pandemic was the country’s No. 1 health security threat, Trump disbanded the National Security Council’s Global Health Security Office, which was tasked with responding to a deadly epidemic.
In Sept. 2019 Trump ended the pandemic early warning program, PREDICT, which trained scientists in other countries to identify viruses that could cause pandemics.
In early 2020, Trump repeatedly ignored warnings from the CDC and played down the seriousness of Covid-19.
January 22 - Trump said we should not be concerned about Covid-19 because “It’s one person coming in from China.”
Feb. 26 - Trump said there were only 15 Americans who had the virus and that number would go down. He also called the media focus on the virus a “Democratic hoax.”
March 10 - Trump said, “Just stay calm. It will go away.”
March 31 - Over 161,000 Americans were confirmed as infected with Covid-19 and more than 3,000 deaths.
April 15 – Over 2000 Americans were dying per day meaning Covid-19 passed heart disease and cancer as the number one cause of death in the US. At the same time, as the world was dealing with the worst pandemic in 100 years, Trump decided to cut off US funding to the World Health Organization.
“Nero fiddled while Rome burned.” Trump fiddled while Americans died.
During the same timeframe, competent leaders of other countries in the world were taking quick, proactive action and changing the course of this pandemic. But not Trump.
Instead of preparing our country’s stockpile of personal protection equipment, as he was recommended to do in 2016 via the 69-page National Security Council’s document that provided a step by step list of pandemic priorities, Trump did nothing. He ignored the document. And today, Trump continues to do nothing except look for others to blame. While the death toll approached the 100,000 mark over the Memorial Day weekend, Trump played golf. Trump would be nothing if he wasn’t a loser.
Trump has framed the fight against the coronavirus as a war against an “invisible enemy.” But if this is a war, Trump has been a disastrous commander in chief. He’s offered the nation no real plan to defeat the coronavirus. He continually undercuts the authority of his “generals” in this war — the top health officials like Dr. Anthony Fauci who are critical to the war’s success. He’s failed to give his front-line troops — the doctors, nurses, and hospital staff working to treat and save coronavirus patients — the vital equipment needed to fight the war. And he’s done little to bring the country together to support the war effort.
“I don’t take responsibility at all,” Trump infamously told reporters in March. He may not want to take responsibility for anything, but it all happened on his watch. He owns it. Period.
Trump is deranged and mentally ill and needs to be institutionalized, not reelected. Keep reminding yourself of that on November 3rd as you cast your vote for Joe Biden. Trump is indisputably the worst president in all of American history. He has absolutely nothing going for him; he has no redeeming value. He is an utter failure as a president and as a man. A vote AGAINST Trump is a vote FOR America. Remember that 100,572 American families like yours and mine are now without husbands, wives and children in large part because of a fake president who did nothing instead of doing his job.
The Power of Denial is Unbelievable!
“Stupid is as stupid does.” (Forrest Gump) In other words, the actions of someone often are an indicator of their intelligence or lack thereof, and even if a person is highly intelligent, he or she can still be stupid.
It’s Memorial Day weekend. Many governors recently lifted the stay-at-home ban, but with restrictions. Those restrictions include gatherings of 10 people or less, wearing protective masks, and continuing to maintain social distancing of six feet or more.
Last night my neighbors had a party on their patio. The table was set up with food and drinks, decorative lights were strung from the house to the patio umbrella, the fire pit was lit, and outdoor chairs were lined up around the fire pit.
Here’s what I saw:
- About a dozen and a half people of all ages were in attendance.
- Not a single person was wearing a face mask.
- Everyone sat elbow to elbow and others intermingled among the group as though it was the summer before the pandemic.
The CDC just released a new report about how the coronavirus is transmitted. It turns out, individuals with coronavirus who don't have symptoms may be the most dangerous of all. According to the CDC's report, 35 percent of all patients with the coronavirus show no symptoms. The CDC also estimates that 40 percent of all coronavirus transmissions—that is, the passing of the contagion from one person to another — happens from people who show no symptoms, either because they're asymptomatic or because they're pre-symtomatic (meaning their symptoms have not yet popped up).
This reaffirms the notion that, even if you're feeling healthy, you should still abide by social distancing, hand washing, disinfecting and wearing a protective mask. There was no wearing of masks or practicing social distancing at my neighbor’s party. I would also be willing to bet that nearly everyone needed to use the bathroom one or more times at some point throughout the evening. That means that every person touched both sides of the home’s door knobs to get in and out of the house, they touched both sides of the same bathroom door knobs, and they touched the same toilet handle. If educated people were careless enough about not wearing protective masks and not practicing social distancing, it’s a safe assumption to make that none of those handles were disinfected between touches either. How many possible new coronavirus transmissions happened at that one party? And how many of those newly infected people will infect others before they even develop symptoms within the next two weeks?
Here are the FACTS:
- The COVID-19 virus is still every bit out there today as it was three months ago, and it kills.
- Humans have no immunity to this virus.
- There is no vaccine.
"You tell me how people act today, I will tell you the infection rate three days from now," New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Sunday, emphasizing the importance residents' actions play in the spread of infections.
More Americans have died of the coronavirus in the last 12 weeks than died in the Vietnam and Korean Wars combined and nearly twice as many as died of battle wounds during World War I. The death toll has nearly matched the number of people killed by the initial blasts of the world’s first atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In terms of American deaths, it is the equivalent of 22 Iraq wars, 33 Sept. 11 attacks, 41 Afghanistan wars, 42 Pearl Harbors or 25,000 Benghazis.
How Many Ways Can You Spell ‘Irresponsible’ and ‘Selfish?’
Start by counting the number of people in this photo taken at Ocean City, MD on 5/23/20, each of whom is a potential carrier and spreader of the invisible coronavirus killer.
Just because Trump wants to end the absolutely necessary stay-at-home orders far too soon in order to boost his reelection numbers, don’t ever forget:
- The COVID-19 virus is still out there everywhere today, just as it was three months ago — nothing has changed.
- No human being has immunity to the virus, and there still is no vaccine. If you get it, you can die, regardless of your age.
Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson reported that several coronavirus cases were reported after a high school swim party. Hutchinson said Arkansas is seeing an increase of Covid-19 cases in what the governor calls a second peak. The state has no stay-at-home orders.
The highest one-day increase of Covid-19 cases was reported in North Carolina Saturday, just one day after phase two of reopening began in the state, health officials say.
These cases highlight the threats of community spread in the United States as cities and states continue relaxing social distancing measures and businesses reopen.
As of this morning, nearly 99,000 Americans have died of COVID-19, and it’s still spreading while Trump is doing nothing. Don’t be irresponsible or selfish by following the self-serving advice of Trump, the nation’s #1 idiot who is mentally unqualified for the job. On Saturday, 5/23/20, Trump was playing golf at his Virginia club (and amazingly his draft-dodging bone spurs didn’t bother him a bit) while the coronavirus death toll continues to rise!
Nero fiddled while Rome burned!
It means Trump is clueless.
It means Trump is an idiot.
It means November is coming!
FACTS: Every one of us is smarter than Trump; so don’t listen to his empty and worthless rhetoric. The ONLY things Trump has proven to be good at are pointing fingers and placing blame. So protect yourself. Stay home and save lives!
“Nearly 100,000 lives have been lost, and tens of millions are out of work. Meanwhile, the president spent his day golfing.” (Joe Biden, on 5/24/20)
Election Day, November 3rd — Finally the End of the Twitter Toddler!
The latest poll by Fox News shows that Trump is trailing Joe Biden by a robust 8 points nationwide. And even with the poll’s margin of error of 3 points, that still puts Biden in the lead to become our next president! Trump’s eroding standing versus Biden in the poll correlates with a decline in approval of his handling of the coronavirus pandemic. A separate ABC News poll that came out yesterday morning finds approval of Trump’s handling of the coronavirus hitting a new low of 39 percent.
Most importantly, polls show that Biden is enjoying an 8.8 percent advantage in Michigan and 9.1 percent advantage in Wisconsin — both states that Trump won in 2016 and are central to his reelection hopes.
Two more surveys this month found waning confidence in Trump’s coronavirus response among key religious groups, with a staggering decline in Trump’s favorability among white evangelicals and white Catholics. Both are crucial constituencies that supported Trump by wide margins in 2016 and could sink his reelection prospects this fall. Those polls paint a bleak picture for Trump, who has counted on broadening his religious support by at least a few percentage points to compensate for weakened appeal with women and suburban populations.
You’re outta here, Donnie. Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on your way out. The exterminators will be following close behind to eradicate the White House of any remnant of you.
All For Show — But No Substance
(Big Hat, No Cattle)
In yet another sign of defiance, Trump refused to wear a face mask while visiting a Ford plant in Michigan that is turning out ventilators and masks for use in the coronavirus pandemic, despite a request from the carmaker that he wear one and an executive order from the state’s Democratic governor requiring them. Ford Motor Co. executives wore masks as they led Trump on a tour, in accordance with company policy, but Trump said it was “not necessary here.” Trump suggested he considers it unseemly or unpresidential to be seen in a mask. He suggested the issue is symbolic.
Unseemly and symbolic? Tell that to the 96,363 Americans who have already died of COVID-19, or the 1.6 million who have become infected. Trump is wishing and hoping that masks are part of a time period he is trying to leave behind. But you can’t “wish and hope” this virus away, and it’s not going to disappear “like a miracle” as Trump claims it will. It’s out there today in public every bit as much as it was three months ago, and there’s no vaccine. Not wearing a mask isn’t “unseemly,” as Trump suggests; it’s just plain stupid. Not surprising — just look at the source of the comment — the bungling fool who occupies the Oval Office. All talk and nothing to back it up — Big Hat, No Cattle.
New Election Model Shows Trump Losing By A Landslide
The economy has gone from Trump's greatest political asset to perhaps his biggest weakness.
- Unemployment is spiking at an unprecedented rate.
- Consumer spending is vanishing.
- Gross Domestic Product is collapsing.
Trump will suffer an "historic defeat" in November due to the coronavirus recession, a national election model released Wednesday by Oxford Economics predicted. The model, which uses unemployment, disposable income and inflation to forecast election results, predicts that Trump will lose in a landslide, capturing just 35% of the popular vote. That's a sharp reversal from the model's pre-crisis prediction that Trump would win about 55% of the vote. This would be the worst performance for an incumbent in a century.
The national election model assumes that the economy is still in bad shape this fall, with unemployment above 13%, real per capita incomes down nearly 6% from a year ago and brief period of falling prices, or deflation.
"The economy would still be in a worse state than at the depth of the Great Depression," the Oxford Economics report said.
"Every incumbent president facing a recession in the lead-up to reelection has lost," said Ed Mills, Washington policy analyst at Raymond James.
Trump takes Hydroxychloroquine — He’s a Fool & an Idiot
Trump has now proven just how stupid he really is. Speaking at a meeting of restaurant executives, Trump said he has been taking the drug, hydroxychloroquine, and a zinc supplement daily “for about a week and a half now.” Trump said he is taking the drug to protect against the new coronavirus, even though doctors say the drug has not been shown to either prevent or combat the new coronavirus, and has the potential to cause significant side effects, including heart-rhythm problems and even death.
"I started taking it, because I think it’s good," Trump said. "I’ve heard a lot of good stories. Here's my evidence: I get a lot of positive calls about it.” Oh, Wow, Trump heard a lot of good stories! Now there’s factual, scientific evidence if we’ve ever heard it from one with an adolescent mentality!
“Why is it okay for you to promote the use of this drug when you’re not a doctor?” a reporter asked. Trump responded by making a case that he knows better than medical professionals do.
Oh, really, Donnie? How is that?
Two large observational studies, each involving around 1,400 patients in New York, recently found no benefit from hydroxychloroquine. Two new ones published Thursday in the peer-reviewed medical journal, The BMJ, reached the same conclusion. An analysis of patients at Veterans Affairs hospitals across the country found that the death rates of people treated with hydroxychloroquine were higher than those who did not receive the treatment.
According to the results of his medical exam released last year, Trump is obese with a listed height of 6 feet, 3 inches and a weight of 243 pounds. His body mass index, a measure of body weight based on height, is 30.4, putting him in the category of obese.
Trump believes Fox News is "no longer the same" after host Neil Cavuto urged caution over the use of hydroxychloroquine. Cavuto cited a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) study of the drug on veterans hospitalized with COVID-19, which saw a higher mortality rate among those treated with the drug alone. He said: "Those with vulnerable conditions, respiratory conditions, heart ailments, they died." Trump criticized the network and said he is "looking for a new outlet" after Cavuto's message. Instead, we have a better idea, Donnie: Maybe you should be looking for a new country to move to where you can be a dictator.
Lesson Learned: There are no words that can come out of Trump’s mouth that have any credibility or believability. We need to resist even letting our ears be an audience for this idiot.
Trump would be nothing if he wasn’t an idiot, and this fact can no longer be disputed. Where did the Republican party ever find such an absolute fool? Trump is not fit to hold any elected office, and ousting him is long overdue. Anyone who would vote for Trump or any Republican legislator who would continue to support Trump is as ignorant as Trump himself.
Breaking News on 6/3/20: Hydroxychloroquine did not prevent healthy people exposed to Covid-19 from getting the disease caused by the coronavirus, according to a study being published on 6/3/20 in the New England Journal of Medicine.
#45 Retaliates Again
In his typical retaliatory style, #45 fired Steve A. Linick, the State Department’s Inspector General. Unlike real presidents, who work with representatives from both parties and achieve compromise, #45 is only a vindictive dictator who has no ability to work hand-in-hand with those of dissenting opinions. He only knows how to take the immature loser’s way out and eliminate anyone and everyone who doesn’t agree with him or who doesn’t genuflect in front of him and kiss his ring. So was the case of Linick.
A White House official, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations, said, “Secretary Pompeo recommended the move, and President Trump agreed.”
Linick was said to have begun investigating alleged misconduct by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. So acting on Pompeo’s recommendation, Trump abruptly fired Linick, again challenging established norms of American governance in his push to rid the federal bureaucracy of officials he considers insufficiently loyal to or protective of him and his administration. 45 also replaced the acting inspector general at the Department of Transportation. This was #45’s fourth such firing during the coronavirus pandemic.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) decried what she termed a “dangerous pattern of retaliation against the patriotic public servants charged with conducting oversight on behalf of the American people.”
House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot L. Engel (D-N.Y.) and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s ranking Democrat, Robert Menendez (N.J.) issued a statement saying, “We unalterably oppose the politically-motivated firing of inspectors general and the President’s gutting of these critical positions.”
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) wrote Saturday evening on Twitter: “The firings of multiple Inspectors General is unprecedented; doing so without good cause chills the independence essential to their purpose. It is a threat to accountable democracy and a fissure in the constitutional balance of power.”
America is a democracy, not a dictatorship. It’s long past time to oust Trump, the demonic dictator. We must do anything and everything we can to resist this grossly incompetent and mentally deficient narcissist.
Operation Warped President!
In a hyped up mid-day event from the Rose Garden reminiscent of one of his failed reality shows, Trump reached into his loser’s bag of tricks to attempt to sell his “Operation Warp Speed” to citizens stupid enough to believe he can rush a yet-to-be-developed vaccine to market by what he hopes would be his reelection. Nice try, Donnie. Maybe your stupid supporters will believe your wishful pipe dream, but those of us with brains in our heads will instead place our bets on the timelines provided by experts who actually know what they’re doing, like Dr. Fauci.
During his announcement, Trump lied again. He insisted the loud honking of trucks in the background was a show of support for him. In actuality, it was truckers protesting poor economic conditions. Everything Trump does is for his own self-aggrandizement at the expense of everyone else.
Wear Your Mask!
Can you read? Wear Your Mask!
Mask-rejecters are incredibly stupid people who are flouting public health guidelines the way chain-smokers used to, grounding their individuality in their defiance of state edicts and in their outlaw freedom to trash their own health and endanger others. Let me say it again: Mask-rejecters are incredibly stupid people. That’s not even open for discussion.
The battle over wearing masks can be mapped closely to the dangerously inflamed red-blue divide. On one side are the educated citizens who have the ability to think and reason and listen to the wise advice of the epidemiologists. On the other side are the ignorant Trump supporters who follow the Twitter Toddler, their cult leader, who has also stupidly recommended drinking Lysol, bombarding the body with ultraviolet light, and taking unapproved and dangerous drugs to cure the pandemic. Unfortunately, stupidity is obviously not illegal in America. The Trump supporters prove it.
Remember the slogan: No shoes. No shirt. No service? The new slogan: No Mask. No Service. No one can be uninformed or misinformed on the value of wearing a mask during this pandemic. We shouldn’t have to accommodate the stupid any longer.
TRUMP LOSES THE NOVEMBER ELECTION!
Everyone’s laughing at Trump. For good reason. When people lose faith and trust in you — whether you’re a politician or a regular citizen — it's a very hard thing to win back. According to CNN, more than 6 in 10 Americans do not trust the information about the coronavirus that they get from Trump. That speaks not only to Trump's trust deficit in dealing with this global pandemic, but the much larger impact of his assaults on the truth during his first 3+ years in office. According to the Washington Post, Trump made more than 18,000 false or misleading statements during his first 1,170 days in office — an average of 15 claims a day!
We don’t have a president, or a plan. 60 days into the coronavirus crisis, and Trump does not have a plan, a framework, or a philosophy. Forget a plan, Trump doesn’t even have a goal. Trump is just wasting time while the virus continues to spread. The government should have built the testing, contact tracing, and quarantine infrastructure necessary to safely end the lockdown and transition back to some sense of normalcy — as many other countries did successfully. Instead, Trump sat with his thumb up his ass and substituted showmanship for action, playing the president on TV but refusing to do the actual job, abdicating his duties. And he continues to do so. Americans don’t have a functional president — we only have someone playing a dysfunctional president on TV. Trump is as unqualified as unqualified gets.
Trump has an historic disrespect for facts and he twists data to fit his personal political agenda. He has no credibility. He’s nothing but a liar, a loser, a bullshit artist, and a 2-bit snake oil salesman. Trump will never admit to being any of those things, but he knows he is, and the world knows it too.
Trump's calculation to reject science and push to swiftly crank up an economy with the nation still ravaged by Covid-19 could kill many more than the nearly 87,000 Americans who have already died. That is a sad price that Trump is willing to pay. But he will pay — if not beforehand, most definitely in the November election, for we citizens will pull out all the stops both individually and collectively to remove him from office.
People don't vote for people who they don't trust on the overarching issues of the day. Or trust at all. Trump has already lost his bid for reelection, and the country is much better off for it. Adios, Little Donnie Boy. Goodbye and good riddance.
"I would trust the guy who's one of our nation's top public health experts [Dr. Fauci], not [Trump] the one who pondered injecting disinfectant into the body and looked directly at a solar eclipse.” (Joe Biden). Note: Dr. Fauci has served under six presidents, with decades of exemplary public service and expertise fighting HIV/AIDS, Ebola, Zika and anthrax — using facts and logic that conflict with Trump's chosen version of altered reality.
The US will face "unprecedented illness and fatalities" without additional preparations to curb the coronavirus pandemic. "Without clear planning and implementation, 2020 will be (the) darkest winter in modern history." (Dr. Rick Bright, ex-head of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) and the Office of Special Counsel)
“Give me a stock clerk with a goal and I’ll give you a man who will make history. Give me a man with no goals and I’ll give you a stock clerk.” (J.C. Penney)
Trump exports meat to China while U.S. meat workers fall sick and supplies dwindle!
Trump ordered meat processing plants to stay open to protect the nation's food supply even as workers got sick and died. Yet the plants have increasingly been exporting to China while U.S. consumers face shortages.
Trump is rightfully facing criticism from lawmakers, consumers and plant employees for putting American workers at risk in part to help ensure China's meat supply.
In an unrelated story on 5/10/20, Trump drummed up business for his golf course in Los Angeles using his Twitter platform. U.S. deaths from COVID-19 inched closer 80,000, but the Twitter Toddler didn’t tweet about that.
This a$$hole proves on a daily basis that he is a totally incompetent, self-serving and deranged idiot.
*** MUST READ ***
Trump Administration Turned Down An Offer To Make Millions of N95 Masks In America As Far Back As January
Read this story from The Washington Post, Americans, and then try to come up with any reason whatsoever to vote for the incompetent idiot in the Oval Office.
It was Jan. 22, a day after the first case of COVID-19 was detected in the United States, and orders were pouring into Michael Bowen’s medical supply company company outside Fort Worth, some from as far away as Hong Kong.
Bowen’s company, Prestige Ameritech, could ramp up production to make an additional 1.7 million N95 masks a week. He viewed the shrinking domestic production of medical masks as a national security issue, though, and he wanted to give the federal government first dibs.
But communications over several days with Trump’s senior agency officials — including Dr. Robert Kadlec, the assistant secretary for preparedness and emergency response — left Bowen with the clear impression that there was little immediate interest in his offer. But Bowen persisted.
“We are the last major domestic mask company,” Bowen wrote on Jan. 23. “My phones are ringing now, so I don’t ‘need’ government business. I’m just letting you know that I can help you preserve our infrastructure if things ever get really bad. I’m a patriot first, businessman second.”
In the end, the government did not take Bowen up on his offer. Instead, months later, the government spent over $600 million on contracts involving foreign-made masks for as much as $5.50 a piece, while Bowen’s company charges 79 cents a piece. Even today, production lines that could be making more than 7 million masks a month sit dormant, while the virus continues to spread and our health care workers are short of personal protective equipment. The blame falls right on Trump’s shoulders.
Bowen’s overture was described in an 89-page whistleblower complaint filed this week by Dr. Rick Bright, former director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority. Bright alleges he was retaliated against by Kadlec and other Trump officials — including being reassigned to a lesser post — because he tried to “prioritize science and safety over political expediency.”
Trump threw Dr. Rick Bright under the bus and ousted him as a “disgruntled employee.”
This week, the Cleveland Clinic put out a request for help making masks for the greater Cleveland area population. The Amish community in the area came to the rescue by making and donating 12,000 masks. The underlying question is WHY should citizens be making masks when Trump failed the citizens in preparing for this pandemic when he was repeatedly warned and while he instead sat with his thumb up his ass, doing nothing? The answer: Trump is blatantly incompetent.
Trump already knows what a pathetic failure he is both as a president and as an empathetic human being. He’s had three and a half years to show America that he’s a leader. Instead, he’s only proven that he’s a pathetic failure. He has no focus and no plan. He is only interested in his own reelection at the expense of the health and well-being of all Americans. In November, voters will oust Trump as the most incompetent person in history to ever hold the office of president and this time we will elect a president who has a brain.
Incidentally, the news reports that in spite of people within the White House having tested positive for COVID-19, Trump continues to reject guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to wear a mask when meeting with groups of people. So maybe his replacement will come sooner than expected.
Our first responders and our health care workers are America’s super heroes.
Trump is nothing but a dismal failure.
Trump Shelves CDC Documents
Documents prove that on 4/30/20 Trump shelved detailed advice from the nation’s top disease control experts for reopening communities during the coronavirus pandemic. Then, after the Associated Press reported that the guidance document, titled “Guidance for Implementing the Opening Up America Again Framework,” had been buried, the Trump administration ordered key parts of it to be fast-tracked for approval. Trump got caught red-handed in a cover-up again. A trove of emails from the CDC was suppressed by his administration, and the Associated Press found him out. So, for those of you who continue to be Trump supporters, thinking that your cult leader is acting on your behalf, think again. Trump is only interested in one thing — himself.
Trump continuously covers up what he doesn’t want to hear and thinks he can get away with for his own personal and political gain. There are no words that can come out of Trump’s mouth that hold any credence. He is completely untrustworthy.
In the meantime, America’s COVID-19 death toll now stands at 78,616, with over 1.3 million having been infected; and it’s still spreading while Trump covers up the CDC’s plan. The very best thing that can be said about Trump is that he’s a mentally deranged idiot.
Senate Republicans Disagree With Trump
Trump said, "We have the greatest testing in the world. We have so much testing. I don't think you need that kind of testing or that much testing, but some people disagree with me and some people agree with me.”
Anyone with a brain disagrees with the idiot in the Oval Office.
On 5/7/20, a wide range of Republican senators disagreed with Trump: Much more needs to be done to ramp up testing before the country can safely reopen.
"We ought to step it up.” (Senate Appropriations Chairman Richard Shelby, a Republican from Alabama)
"We just really want to ramp up testing. We need more tests produced ... because I think consumer confidence would certainly be better if we could be testing out there, get the economy up and going." (Republican Senator Joni Ernst from Iowa)
"There are still shortfalls.” (Republican Senator Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia)
"We need a massive manufacturing of testing." (Republican Senator Roger Wicker of Mississippi)
"To get students back to school in the fall and again open up all these businesses, we just really need to have a lot of tests." (Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida)
In recent weeks, Trump has consistently blocked or downplayed information about the severity of the coronavirus pandemic as he urged a return to normalcy and the rekindling of the economy. He has sidelined or replaced officials not seen as loyal, rebuffed congressional requests for testimony, dismissed jarring statistics and models, praised states for reopening without meeting White House guidelines and, briefly, pushed to disband a task force created to combat the virus and communicate about the public health crisis.
Face it, Americans, Trump would be nothing if he wasn’t an idiot. He has proven that he has no grip on reality and what it takes to slow down and halt this pandemic. Trump has no leadership abilities. With Trump at the helm, so far more than 1.3 million Americans have been infected, and more than 77,400 have died. And that’s NOT “fake news.”
Trump Refuses To Wear A Mask
Trump refused to wear a protective mask while visiting a Honeywell factory that makes masks in Phoenix, Arizona, all while the Guns N’ Roses version of the song “Live and Let Die” blasted across the loudspeakers in the factory. How appropriate.
No matter that coronavirus cases continue to rise in many states, Trump is shrugging off warnings by scientists that the easing restrictions taking place across the country could cause tens of thousands of needless, additional deaths. Trump gave the clearest sign yet on Tuesday, just less than six months from Election Day and as the US death toll topped 71,000, that he is moving from pandemic management to a message of revival and an aggressive pitch for a second term.
How many ways can you spell “idiot?” Just one way: T-R-U-M-P.
Dr. Fauci Crushes Trump’s Theory On COVID-19 Origin
For weeks now, Trump has been making the case that the coronavirus originated not in nature but in a lab in Wuhan, China. Wrong again, Twitter Toddler!
Dr. Fauci said, ”If you look at the evolution of the virus in bats and what's out there now, [the scientific evidence] is very, very strongly leaning toward this could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated ... Everything about the stepwise evolution over time strongly indicates that [this virus] evolved in nature and then jumped species."
Before we play the game of "he said, he said" remember this: Only one of these two people is a world-renowned infectious disease expert. And it's not Trump.
The back-and-forth over where the virus originated -- and how -- is simply the latest example of how Trump seeks to shape reality to fit his predetermined conclusion. Trump needs someone to blame for the virus -- and "Mother Nature" isn't cutting it. So he turns to China -- and decided that they made this in a lab.
Predictably, Trump Threw Dr. Fauci Under The Bus
It was just a matter of time, folks! Trump throws anybody and everybody under the bus who doesn’t agree with him and his dysfunctional, altered state of reality, and he never ever takes responsibility or blame for any of his incompetence or misdeeds. This time it’s esteemed Dr. Fauci’s turn to be thrown under the bus. Trump said at a Fox News town hall on Sunday night that "everybody," including leading infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci, previously downplayed the severity of the virus. In response to a question about why he did not act sooner to prepare for a COVID-19 outbreak in the US, Trump said Fauci "was saying it's gonna pass, not gonna be a big deal."
On the contrary, Fauci has been warning the Trump administration about an infectious disease outbreak since 2017. Maybe some day Trump will grow a brain, but don’t count on it during your lifetime!
Trump also complained that he has been treated worse by the media than any previous president, including Abraham Lincoln. Too bad, Donnie. Maybe you ought to take a good look in the mirror to try to figure out why.
Instead of doing his job, Trump has made “blaming others” a national pastime, while at the same time being nothing but a flat-out liar.
Mark this celebratory date on your calendar, folks: January 20, 2021. That’s the date that we kick this incompetent, “fake” president out of the White House, have the “people’s house” exterminated from the vermin that’s lived there for the past four years, and inaugurate a “real” president. Then we’ll never have to see or hear from Trump ever again in our nation’s lifetime.
Mentally Ill Trump Contradicts Top Health Officials & Promotes Dangerous Drugs Again!
Trump, the idiot’s idiot, returned to touting an unproven treatment for COVID-19. He said, “We're building supply lines, we even have the final vaccine.” This is pure bullshit from an outright liar!
In his town hall on Sunday, 5/3/20, Trump returned to promoting those drugs for malaria — hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine — as a coronavirus treatment even though his own administration has warned it carries dangerous side effects. He went so far as to claim without evidence that his rivals are pushing negative findings about the medication to hurt him politically. The FDA has cautioned that hydroxychloroquine should not be used by patients with heart problems because it makes them worse.
Trump is delusional and mentally unbalanced. He needs to be removed from office and committed to a mental institution today.
“He has an underlying Narcissistic Personality Disorder (axis 2), which under pressure has caused such decompensation that he now has an axis one Delusional Disorder. Everything he perceives is filtered through either his grandiose delusions (he is the greatest, the best, the most winning, etc.) or his paranoid delusions (if they criticize me they are part of a conspiracy to destroy me, etc.). Nothing else even registers. Nothing about the nation's health care, national security, etc. It is only what feeds the grandiosity or it must be destroyed because it triggers the paranoia. He is very, very sick and the 25th Amendment should be invoked. But his minions are too terrified of his rage.
And amazingly, his sickness has metastasized to his followers such that they also buy into the grandiosity and the paranoid delusions. It has become a collective psychosis. It may be that if this crazy train hits the unforgiving stone wall of reality and multiple people in his cult get sick, things may change. But he is good at redirecting the blame and invoking their sense of victimization. So we will see.” (Nancy Waterman)
"Donald Trump is dangerously mentally ill and temperamentally incapable of being president." (John Gartner, psychotherapist at Johns Hopkins University). The symptoms of malignant narcissism that Trump purportedly manifests are many and include antisocial behaviors, sadism, lack of conscience, and manipulative and aggressive tendencies. According to Psychology Today, this dyad of conditions — delusions and malignant narcissism — also plagued two of Trump’s mentors: Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin.
“If Republicans actually want to get Americans back to work, what they have to do is simple: Get rid of Donald Trump now. More than anything, we are where we are now because Trump prioritized his own interests above the well-being of the United States. And our response will always be limited by his addictions to adulation and political gain. When he could have been taking action that might have saved tens of thousands of lives, Trump was busy tweeting, holding rallies, golfing, partying at Mar-A-Lago and silencing the CDC.” (Jason Sattler, member of USA TODAY’s Board of Contributors)
Trump’s Uneducated Protesters Increase The Spread of COVID-19
Stupidity is not illegal in America! It’s alive and well! Living proof can be seen all across America where short-sighted Trump-supporting protesters, like the idiot pictured here, are congregating and marching against numerous states’ stay-at-home orders in compliance with the advice of top health experts. These protesters are both ignorant and selfish. As of today, 68,507 Americans have already died of this virus, and nearly 1.2 million have been infected. But these protesters don’t have the mental capacity and foresight to see further than one foot in front of their faces. They are willing to expose others to the COVID-19 virus, increasing the number of those infected and the number of deaths at a result — all because they have “rights.” Well, we all have “rights,” like the right to squelch the spread of this virus by listening to the health experts and staying at home. A few short months at home can turn the tide of this virus’ spread. A few short months at home where, unlike during the killer flu of 1918, most everyone now has “comfort” conveniences like television, the Internet, email, Facebook, smart phones, electric refrigerators and flush toilets. These ignorant, whining babies need to go home, stay home, and shut up. They need to do what the health experts agree must be done in order to stop this pandemic. But stupidity is not illegal in America. How they’re even able to figure out how to put their shoes on in the morning is a mystery. If you look at the hat and T-shirt on the guy in the accompanying picture, it’s easy to understand where his ignorance comes from — Trump, his cult leader. Ignorance breeds ignorance.
Trump Muzzles Esteemed Dr. Fauci Because Fauci Would Reveal Trump’s Incompetence
Trump is blocking Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, from testifying before a House subcommittee investigating the coronavirus outbreak and response, arguing that it would be “counterproductive” for him to appear next week while in the midst of participating in the government’s response to the pandemic.
It would only be counterproductive to Trump because Fauci would inevitably reveal Trump’s all-too-slow response to the COVID-19 pandemic, causing it to spread faster and further than it needed to.
Listen to the administration’s lame excuse for Fauci’s muzzling: “It’s not muzzling, it’s not blocking, it’s simply trying to ensure we’re able to balance the need for oversight, the legitimate need for oversight, with their responsibilities to handle covid-19 work at their respective agencies and departments.” Blah, blah, blah. The voters know bullshit when we hear it.
This is all about Trump throwing Fauci, the only adult in the room, under the bus because Fauci would reveal Trump’s incompetence.
It was learned today that Fauci will, however, appear before the GOP-led Senate Committee on Health, Education Labor and Pensions on May 12.
Trump Has No Guts While Canada’s Justin Trudeau Displays Brilliant Leadership by Banning Assault-Style Weapons In Only One Day
The Canadian government on Friday announced a ban on assault-style rifles. “These weapons were designed for one purpose and one purpose only: to kill the largest amount people in the shortest amount of time," Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said.
“There is no use and no place for such weapons in Canada. Effective immediately, it is no longer permitted to buy, sell, transport and import or use military-grade assault weapons in this country.”
Trudeau accomplished this country-wide ban in ONE DAY while Trump, who is sleeping with the NRA, got NOTHING done about the gun problem in well over three years. Why not? Simple — Trump is afraid to lose the NRA vote. Period.
Trump Cult Members Advocate Violence in Michigan & Trump Supports Them
A large group, some with rifles slung over their shoulders, massed in the lobby outside the House chambers in Lansing, Michigan and yelled at State Police troopers and House sergeants. Trump said, “These are very good people, but they are angry.” These are good people? Oh yeah, right! Good people, my ass. These are stupid people who don’t have enough brains to realize that they’re responsible for spreading the virus and extending the stay-at-home orders even further. And who said, “Liberate Michigan?” None other than Trump, the incompetent Twitter Toddler and cult leader who sanctions these actions by his dysfunctional cult members. Obviously, the demonstrators did not observe social distancing guidelines or wear masks. Some carried signs that appeared to advocate violence, such as, "Tyrants get the rope." These idiots prove that stupidity is not illegal in America.
Trump is sending meat packing workers back to work, declaring these businesses as “critical infrastructure” under the Defense Production Act. So far nearly 900 Tyson food workers tested positive for COVID-19 at its plant in Logansport, Indiana. This is in addition to the closure of another Tyson plant in Robards, Kentucky the day before, and other Tyson plants in Iowa and Washington last week. Four Tyson employees have already died of the coronavirus.
But Trump wants these plants reopened and the workers back at work, proving that he cares nothing about the health of America’s workforce. Forcing workers back to work in unsafe conditions while we are at the peak of people dying and becoming infected is a sign of a sick and mentally deranged “wanna be” president whose only concern is himself and his perceived reelection outcome. He is willing to throw the citizens of America under the bus, including the health and well-being of his own supporters, to benefit his own political agenda.
