The New Detail


cjones11112020

Author Andrew Shvarts tweeted, “This election is like if your friends pick dinner and 3 vote pizza and 2 vote ‘kill and eat you.’ Even if pizza wins, there’s a big problem.” He tweeted that in 2016 but it applies more to the 2020 election.

That’s the question we have to ask ourselves: After four years of chaos, insanity, racism, and over 230,000 dead from an ignored virus and massive job loss, why did nearly half this country vote for the Nazi apologist? Why did half the country vote for the guy who’s lied to them over 20,000 times? Why did half the nation want four more years of this bullshit?

While we can celebrate that we’re getting rid of Trump, we still have his MAGAts. Yes, liberals got the White House, but didn’t win control of the Senate and actually lost seats in the House. There’s actually a member of Qanon heading to Congress. So if you’re thinking that you don’t have to flee the nation because Trump won’t be poisoning it up anymore, the damange may already be done.

As for the Secret Service, good for the guys who have been assigned to the Biden detail and too bad for the guys still protecting Trump’s ass. Even with Donald Trump out of the White House, he still qualifies for Secret Service protection for the rest of his life (along with the pension we’ll pay him. Let’s see if he donated that). A former president (sic) can decline Secret Service protection, which President Jimmy Carter has done.

The only times I am aware of an attempt on the life of a former president was when Saddam Hussein planned to assassinate former President George H. W. Bush and when someone shot former President Theodore Roosevelt. But in Roosevelt’s situation, he was once again a presidential candidate (and he delivered a speech after being shot and before going to the hospital).

Donald Trump is a supposed billionaire. He can afford his own security. But if he declines Secret Service protection, then he can’t bilk them (us) for rent, golf cart rentals to follow him around, and for shitty sandwiches and shitty rooms at his shitty resorts. Will his children decline Secret Service protection. I know from experience that children of a former president continue to receive protection, at least for a while. I went to high school with Amy Carter after her father lost to Ronald Reagan and the Secret Service was constantly present.

But then again, Donald Trump said he’d have to leave the country if he lost to the likes of Joe Biden. I’d like to hold him to that promise. Will Putin provide him a security detail?

Of course, he could always go to jail and then we don’t have to worry about any of it.

  2. Why did they vote for Trump? It is because the Dems proffered a candidate that represents the establishment, the status quo that has so ravaged the middle class and the poor. This incredibly racist country even voted for a black man instead of a representative of the establishment. If the Dems had offered a real choice, the results would have been different.

    Can you imagine the Shame, the Ignominy, of “Taking A Bullet” for 45* now?

    I bet even Mike Rowe wouldn’t take that job.

    1. I said a year ago that the worst job in 2021 would be having to be the Secret Service detail for Trump once he’s out of office. That’s gonna be some humiliating and disheartening detail right there because I’m sure they’ve had enough of his tantrums and general idiocy and they’ll be right there for most of it. Hope they got a good family and therapist to help them out.

  4. Never having been a true president, Trump does not deserve protection, unless it is in solitary confinement in some federal prison. Can you imagine how cute his bare ass would look to some of the hulking giants running the prisons. Not that I would wish that on my worst enemy, but Trump is too cowardly to be an enemy! He is nothing but a bully, and deserves whatever he gets. LOCK TRUMP UP! LOCK TRUMP UP! LOCK TRUMP UP!
