In mid-December of last year, Representative Pramila Jayapal eloquently summed up why she voted to impeach trump, from her perspective as an immigrant to the United States who cherishes the Constitution and the checks that it offers Americans against a POTUS that is willing to abuse his power for personal gain.
In light of today’s white supremacist terror incident in El Paso, let’s revisit this moment from a trump rally in Florida from a few months back, in which trump laughs off a comment from someone in the crowd yelling “shoot them!” about immigrants, and follows it up with a joke.
trump likes to tweet racist things. It keeps his idiot white supremacist base fired up and angers decent Americans who oppose him. CNN’s anchor Victor Blackwell has apparently had enough. After trump tweeted out a racist attack on Baltimore, referring to it in his choice Hitler-ian language as “infested,” Blackwell offered up a passionate and emotional response.
trump lies. About everything. Even when there is video or audio proof that shows that he is lying.
The most recent, glaring example of this is his recent attempt to distance himself from one of his racist rally crowds (this one in North Carolina) chanting “send her back!” – in reference to Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who is a favorite target for trump.
The day after this disgusting, fascistic and racist display happened, trump attempted to gaslight the nation once again, and said that he had started speaking faster in order to discourage the chanting. As you can see in the video, trump does not do this. He pauses and allows the crowd’s chanting to continue.
So, earlier this year, comedian Michelle Wolf stirred things up by being brutally honest about the Trump administration. Needless to say, the man-baby squatting in our White House wasn’t happy, and it appears that the White House Correspondents’ Association has buckled. For the 2019 dinner, a historian will do the speaking (sounds thrilling.)
Upon hearing this news, this quote from John Lennon was the first thing that came to mind.
No, this is not the most important issue we are facing, by far. But it’s an embarrassing symbol of just how out of touch this disgusting family is with anything less than opulence. And if you think they’re not aware of how this looks, I’ve got a wall to sell you, which Mexico is going to pay for.
Anyone who has been paying attention already knew. But this week, Trump confirmed it on the world stage, as he stood next to his boss, Vladimir Putin, and slammed his own country’s intelligence agencies, blamed current relations with Russia on the United States, and accepted Putin’s narrative that Russia wasn’t behind the 2016 election hacks.
Let’s see…Between the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy of separating immigrant children from their parents, the desire to cut Social Security, and the attempts to destroy Obamacare – I would say that Republicans are 0 for 3 in the context of this quote.
I thought Fox News and their viewers were totally against government tyranny, etc. At least they were when Obama was in office. And one of the most tired arguments that we often hear from 2nd Amendment people is that guns are needed to protect against tyrants, dictators, etc.
Now, right-wingers are apparently just swell with Trump literally saying he wants to be like the North Korean dictator, Kim Jong-Un.
The disdain for Obama must have been for a different reason…Can’t quite put my finger on it…
