Being a major campaign donor doesn’t make you qualified to be an ambassador to the European Union. It doesn’t make you qualified to be the ambassador to the United Kingdom. It doesn’t make you qualified to lead the Department of Education. And it doesn’t make you qualified to be in charge of the United States Post Office.
If Donald Trump, the worst president (sic) in the history of the United States, truly wanted to “make the Post Office great again,” he wouldn’t have appointed a fucknut with zero experience to lead it.
Donald Trump has been lying about the Post Office ever since he became president (sic). He’s made wild claims Amazon is overcharging the Post Office despite the fact the company’s business has been a boon for the nation’s mail service.
Louis DeJoy is the current Postmaster General. What experience does he have with Post Office? None, but he is a major Republican fundraiser. Also, he had stock in UPS and Amazon. He also currently holds somewhere between $30 to $75 million in stock in XPO, a subcontractor for the Post Office. Hello? Does nobody see the potential for corruption? DeJoy has been a true buzzkill and taken all the joy out of the Post Office. He immediately began to slow down delivery, banned overtime pay and extra delivery trips. He has de-joyed the Post Office.
DeJoy didn’t just stop there. He had more than 600 high-speed mail sorting machines were dismantled and removed from postal facilities without explanation. He removed mail collection boxes from the streets of many cities explaining they were going to areas with higher traffic (lies) but after being busted, said they’ll delay additional moves until after the election.
DeJoy continued sabotaging the mail. He reassigned or displaced 23 senior USPS officials, including the two top executives overseeing day-to-day operations. You know, got rid of the people who would see he was sabotaging the mail. DeJoy sent a letter to mail postal workers, that they’re probably still waiting for, where he admitted there are delays but they’re just “unintended consequences” that will eventually would improve service. This is where you raise one eyebrow in skepticism.
If DeJoy was a surgeon, he’d be telling his patients not to worry because the sponge he left inside them will eventually improve their system.
And in case you still don’t believe any of this is to sabotage mail-in voting and prevent millions of Americans from doing any voting, Donald Trump actually said he was blocking funds for the postal service in order to hinder mail-in voting.
Donald Trump claims there’s fraud with mail-in voting, but he doesn’t have any proof. After being told there was no evidence of widespread voter fraud, Donald Trump’s stupid chief-of-staff said, “There’s no evidence that there’s not either. That’s the definition of fraud, Jake.”
Uh…no. That’s NOT the definition of fraud, Mark Meadows. And since there’s no evidence that there’s not evidence no, not, huh? What? OK. There’s no evidence that there’s not widespread voter fraud….shit. Idiots. You know what, there’s no evidence that monkeys haven’t flown out of Mark Meadows’ butt, but there’s not any evidence that they haven’t either. For that matter, since there’s no evidence of a Donald Trump Russian hooker pee tape, there’s not any evidence that there’s Not a Donald Trump Russian hooker pee tape.
Here’s the thing, kids; Donald Trump is trying to steal an election. He claims there’s fraud in mailing your ballot, yet he’s voting…wait for it…by mail. He’s arguing if there’s a fair election, then it’s not fair. This is what fascists do.
In Russia, Vladimir Putin stops fair elections by throwing his opponents in prison. The people who report he’s throwing his opponents into prisons get thrown off buildings.
In 2002, Saddam Hussein held a referendum on whether he should serve another seven years as president. He won with 100% of the vote. Every voter, of which there were over 11 million, voted yes. Yet, despite his 100% approval rating, when he was hiding in a hole from American forces, one of his constituents pointed at that hole and said, “There he is.”
In Venezuela, Nicola Madura was reelected to a second six-year term in 2018 in an election that only nations like China, Cuba, Russia, Egypt, Syria, and Turkey recognize as fair. That’s like your dog recommending you eating out of the litter box. He likes it. The National Assembly has declared Juan Guaido as acting president, and Maduro’s strongmen have banned him from leaving the country.
Sviatlana Heorhiyeuna Pilipchuk is the opposition candidate in Belarus who decided to run for president after the previous opposition candidate, her husband, was arrested for being the opposition candidate. She won the election with 80% of the vote, yet the dictator, Alexander Lukashenko, declared he won with the same result. Currently, Pilipchuk is in exile in Lithuania.
Donald Trump loves fascists. He’s trying to become one. He sent armed goons to teargas peaceful protesters to remove them from in front of the White House so he could go outside for a photo-op. He’s sent unidentified armed goons to attack peaceful demonstrators in Portland, to teargas them, crack them in the skulls with batons, and to throw them into unmarked vans for interrogation. Now he’s trying to stop an election. He’s even threatened to delay the election. By “delay,” he means never.
And, if Donald Trump succeeds in remaining in the White House, through election or force, it will get worse. I believe it will destroy our nation. It will destroy the Constitution and our democracy. It may rise to the level that if we still have three branches of government, the other two branches will be mere puppets.
If we don’t have a fair election in 2020, we may never have another one again.
America liberates nations. Right now, America needs to liberate America. We have a fascist and this is where the fascist system begins.

Think of me like a street performer busking out tunes on a corner (I won’t play “Wonderwall.” I promise). If you like the tune, or in this case, toon, throw a buck into the tip jar. It’ll help me play another song, draw another toon, write another blog, make another video, and post another snarky post on social media. It’ll help keep me alive.
