He has publicly mocked the disabled, insulted First Families and war heroes, demeaned women, called Mexicans rapist, deported Latinos, threatened Muslims, affirmed Neo-Nazis, dismissed the media as “fake news,” pulled out of the International Paris Accord, put down Meryl Streep, pushed aside the Prime Minister of Montenegro and now called the entire continent of Africa and other places “shithole countries.” It’s as if every day is Opposite Day in Washington and he purposefully says and does the wrong thing. A teacher in an elementary school reported that they had a rule that children could not say the same kind of things he says. He even starts eating his own, as he fires Cabinet member after Cabinet member who supported his agenda of pure evil. And still he sits in the White House masquerading as the President of this nation. How can this be?
I believe it was Lord Chesterton who said something to the effect of, “We all pretty much agree as to what constitutes evil. We differ in what we’re willing to excuse.” What is extraordinary to me is all the people who continue to be okay with this, either because they have a vested interest in the game and want to dismantle Obama’s legacy ‘by any means necessary’ or because their hatred and ignorance and perceived threats to their “good ole boys” club (or their fantasies of being allowed in the club) runs so deep that they’re willing to excuse it all. And while this demented unstable genie’s ass thinks that it would be better if people from Norway immigrated here, the Norwegians are looking at all of this and concluding, “Are you out of your mind? Me go to this shithole country?!!”
There used to be a TV Quiz Show called “What’s My Line?” where celebrities tried to guess a guest’s profession by asking questions. We need a new one called “Where’s My Line?” where the contestants try to guess what will finally make people wake up. Mr. Opposite Day already publicly told the wealthy folks in Mar de Lago, “You’re about to get a whole lot richer” because of his tax plan and still the working folks think the guy is on their side. Really? And the 53% of the women who voted for this macho stalker with 19 sexual misconduct allegations—are you still excusing him? Just wondering whether any black families, war veterans, Latinos, disabled, environmentalists, scientists, teachers, psychologists, folks who came from shithole countries, Meryl Streep fans, etc. etc. are still compiling the excuses as to why this is okay with them and staying on what they think is the safe side of the line. How do you sleep at night? What kind of twisted logic allows you to allow this?
Sigh. Keep going, you fool, until you’ve managed to alienate and insult every group and America suddenly grows a backbone. Your days are numbered.
