Bullshit

Corona BS


cjones03112020

When Donald Trump was a candidate for the presidency and no one could actually see him winning the office, President Obama said Trump was “uniquely unqualified” for the job. Obama was right. Donald Trump has done nothing except prove he’s unqualified and should not be president.

A man like Donald Trump occupying the Oval Office is a national emergency and a national security risk. He’s given secrets to the Russians. He’s downplayed attacks against our nation. He’s given legitimacy to North Korea’s dictator. He’s praised dictators. He’s attacked our allies and has worked diligently to weaken NATO. He withheld military aid to an ally in a war with one of our enemies to extort personal favors. He’s used his office to advance his political campaign and to build his own bank account. He’s removed qualified people from crucial posts to install sycophants and family members. He’s even worked to deny disaster relief and humanitarian aid to Americans because he doesn’t like the spending and their leaders hurt his feelings. For the past three years, Donald Trump hasn’t had a disaster so he’s been one. Now, we have a disaster for him to handle.

A disaster is here and in typical Trumpian fashion, his ego is the top priority. But this time, Trump can’t change the discussion with a tweet. Making fun of someone’s height doesn’t change the subject. Boasting about his leadership skills doesn’t change actual facts. The bet now is who will realize first that Donald Trump’s bullshit doesn’t change facts, Donald Trump or his cult?

One of my conservative fucknut colleagues has a cartoon today with a paper containing a headline reading, “Trump: America prepared for Corona.” And no, the cartoon isn’t about Mexican beer.

What my conservative Trump turdling colleague failed to mention is that Donald Trump has downplayed, and lied, and lied, and lied, and then lied some more when it comes to “Corona.”

His latest attempt to downplay it is that he has a “hunch” the World Health Organization is wrong about the death rate from the Coronavirus. Never mind that WHO’s death rate is based upon actual deaths from the virus. The man believes in invisible airplanes, windmill cancer, and that you need an ID to purchase Count Chocula, but let’s trust his hunch on this one.

Donald Trump initially called the virus a hoax. As you should know by now, it’s not. Trump has claimed the number of cases are decreasing in this nation. They’re not. He claimed the fatality rate is lower than the flu. It’s not. He said a vaccine is coming quickly. It’s not. Next, he’ll probably claim Mexico will pay for it.

And the people who are trying to get the facts out about this emergency are being attacked by Trump and cult, accusing those trying to tell the truth of attempting to hurt him politically. Even his dumbass son, aptly named “Donald Trump Jr,” said Democrats and the media want people to die so it’ll hurt his father politically.

While it’s all well and good (not really) that Donald Trump’s cult gaslights and claims he built this economy and that it was in a recession when he entered office (really. His supporters believe this), nobody dies from that bullshit. But now, they’re gaslighting and playing politics with something that kills people.

While talking to Sean Hannity, Trump said, “you have thousands or even hundreds of thousands of people that get better, just by sitting around — and even going to work — some of them go to work. But they get better.” That’s the kind of bullshit that will kill people. And of course, Hannity wasn’t going to call him on it.

The danger from this is that a member of Trump’s cult will contract the virus and believe he only has the sniffles, and that dumbass will go to work…or attend a Trump rally. By the way, I hear a lot of liberals say if they get the virus then they’re going to a Trump rally. Here’s the problem with that: People who attend Trump rallies don’t only go to Trump rallies (or cross burnings).

But right now, we have a president (sic) who is making the environment deadlier than it already is. He’s providing false information. False information kills. And he’s claiming those who point out his lies are politicizing it and trying to hurt him.

But, criticizing his administration’s weak response and cuts that made this worse has actually increased funding to combat the virus. The House passed an $8.3 billion bill to respond to the Coronavirus and Trump will sign it.

It was during the vote for this bill that one sycophant proved they’re just as bad as their Dear Leader which brings us back to the point that protecting Donald Trump’s ego is a higher priority than combating the pandemic.

During a Meet the Press interview, Mike Pence refused to refute Donald Trump Jr’s claim that Democrats wanted the virus to kill Americans. During a hearing before Congress, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo refused to disagree with Donald Trump that the virus is a hoax. And then, during the floor vote on the bill to fight the virus, Florida Republican representative and Trump sycophant Matt Gaetz wore a huge gas mask to mock the dangers of the virus.

He later said he wore it for his own protection because “members of Congress are human Petri dishes — we fly through the dirtiest airports, we touch everyone we meet. If anyone’s gonna get coronavirus, it’s gonna be the people on that floor so I want to be ready.” I don’t know about the petri dish thing, but Matt Gaetz is like a fungus.

Before the stunt, Gaetz tweeted, “Coronavirus does not belong to a political party and it should not be a political tool.” Seriously. Here’s another fact for Florida Man Matt Gaetz: The virus doesn’t know when it’s being trolled…much like Donald Trump.

I don’t think Gaetz needed a gas mask. His colleagues did and not for safety from the virus, but from smelling the bullshit from Gaetz and the other sycophants in Congress.

In fact, the government says we don’t need to wear medical/surgical masks for protection from the virus, but if Trump’s bullshit continues, we should all wear gas masks.

Donald Trump is uniquely unqualified for the presidency. The only thing Trump is qualified for is bullshit.

Bullshit Corinthians


cjones02142020

If you read this blog on a regular basis, then you’re probably well-read enough politically to be familiar with the argument Republicans have been pushing over the past few years that the Democratic Party created the Ku Klux Klan. You’ll see it in memes and in videos created by Prager U., a conservative outfit that’s not a real university, that engages in bullshit propaganda.

The truth is, the people who created the KKK were Democrats. In the South at that time, there was only one party and it was the Democratic Party. But the Democratic Party did not create the KKK. It takes some serious delusion and warping of history to believe liberals were lynching, suppressing, and denying freedom and the right to vote for African-Americans. Trust me on this, those people were conservatives. When someone shares a meme or video that Democrats created the KKK, what they’re saying is that if they were alive back then, they would have been Democrats. And if you read this blog on a regular basis, you would have been a Republican.

You would have been on the right side then because you’re on the right side now. Today’s Republicans are on the wrong side of history. They would have fought to defend slavery. They would have marched against civil rights. They would have been Vichy French. They would have helped load the trains.

They push this bogus Democratic Party/KKK argument because the truth is, today’s KKK are Republicans and they throw rallies and parades for Donald Trump. The truth is, the KKK was created by who Republicans are today. The people who created the KKK and are in today’s GOP, are Christian fundamentalists. The people who created the KKK were citing God and Christianity. Prager doesn’t mention that. They didn’t adhere to any real Christian principles then and they don’t today. They were liars then and they’re liars now. Their religion has always been their crutch to shit on other people, mostly minorities.

Evangelicals who support Donald Trump are phonies without principles to stand on. The majority of them opposed him before joining the cult. They couldn’t stomach this thrice-married racist liar with the world’s worst combover who assaults women. What did Donald Trump change to gain their support? He didn’t change anything. He didn’t even change his combover. They decided their convictions weren’t ever really all that important. They exposed themselves to the rest of us that everything they’ve preached about over the decades, family values, honesty, integrity, patriotism, was all bullshit.

This was in full display at the National Prayer Breakfast held in Washington, D.C. While Republicans are livid that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi broke decorum and was disrespectful by tearing up her copy of Trump’s racist and fact-challenged State of the Union speech, they had no issues with him using this event about tolerance into his own personal Festivus. They didn’t mind that he held up newspaper headlines about his acquittal or that he boasted about his polls. They don’t care that later during a White House ceremony, where Festivus continued, he called the Russia probe “bullshit.”

Trump used the bipartisan breakfast to air his grievances calling his enemies “corrupt” and “dishonest” and how they’ve put “your president” through a “terrible ordeal.” No, Donald Trump put himself, and us, through this ordeal with his corruption and lies. But what’s even worse is that he questioned their religion at this event.

Mr. “2 Corinthians” who has said he’s never sought forgiveness from God and has talked about the few times he’s been to church where he drinks his “little wine” and eats his “little cracker,” is going to question someone else’s religion.

Senator Mitt Romney cited his faith in voting to impeach Trump. Romney is well known for his religious convictions. Say what you will about Romney, but it’s hard to say you’ve never heard him discuss or cite his faith in the past. Leave it to Donald Trump to make such a claim.

Trump said, “I don’t like people who use their faith as justification for doing what they know is wrong.” Don’t worry, Mitt. He doesn’t like people who get captured during war either. Then he said, “And then you have some that used religion as a crutch. They never used it before. An article written today — never heard him use it before but today, you know, it’s one of those things.” For Trump, difficulty speaking in complete sentences is one of those things.

In reference to Pelosi, he said, “Nor do I like people who say, ‘I pray for you,’ when they know that’s not so.”

Pelosi was at the event and spoke about the poor and persecuted. The keynote address was delivered by Arthur Brooks, a Harvard professor who asked Americans to put aside hatred in national life and “love your enemies.”

Brooks asked, “How many of you love somebody with whom you disagree politically?” Everyone in the room raised their hands…except for Donald Trump. He said, “Ask God to take political contempt from your heart. And sometimes when it’s too hard, ask God to help you fake it.” Then Trump spoke who didn’t bother to fake it.

If you listened to Trump’s State of the Union speech, you know he’s about hatred. The guy who said “send them back” and has defended Nazis while tearing immigrant families apart and putting babies in jail, will never fake it. In fact, his base loves his hate. It’s his hate that created his base.

The Religious right didn’t get involved in politics when abortion became legal. They want you to believe that but no. They got involved over race and they’ve been waiting decades for Donald Trump. When Trump calls himself the “chosen one,” for evangelicals, he is.

The crowd that claims they follow Jesus truly follows a man who preaches hate and evangelicals are his disciples.

But at the very least, we now know that everything they preach in the future is all just bullshit.
