White House spokesgoon Kayleigh McEnany stood before the press corps and said Donald Trump never downplayed the coronavirus. Yet, in Bob Woodward’s recordings, Trump said, “I wanted to always play it down. I still like playing it down.”
Sean Hannity said it wasn’t Donald Trump who downplayed the virus. It was Joe Biden. Yet, in those recordings, it was Donald Trump, NOT Joe Biden, saying, “I wanted to always play it down. I still like playing it down.”
Sean Hannity also compared Donald Trump to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt by saying, “During World War II, with the country on the brink, FDR proclaimed: ‘We have nothing to fear but fear itself.’ Did the media attack him? Of course not.” Showing just how much cultists suck at history, FDR made that quote during his first inauguration in 1933 which was nearly a decade before World War II. But I digress.
During a town hall a couple nights ago, that Laura Ingraham described as an “ambush” because Trump wasn’t asked softball Fox News type questions like, “Why are you so great and terrific smelling?”, Donald Trump was asked why he downplayed the virus. He said he never downplayed the virus and in fact, he “up-played” the virus. But that’s really odd because, on that Woodward recording, Trump is heard saying…wait for it…””I wanted to always play it down. I still like playing it down.”
I have a difficult time believing all three of them, McEnany, Hannity, and Trump, who is the president (sic) of the United States of America, would all collectively lie to us (that’s sarcasm just in case I’m not laying it on thick enough). So, what’s the explanation for hearing Donald Trump say on a recording, “I wanted to always play it down. I still like playing it down,” yet it not being him saying it?
There has to be an explanation. Why, it must have been…Donald Trump’s evil twin, Damien Trump.
I mean, it all makes sense now. No president in today’s world could ever be so racist to say racist stuff like, “Send them back,” Mexicans are “rapists and murderers,” and “shithole countries,” or call someone “Pocahontas,” or retweet Nazis and “white power.”
No president could be so stupid to say stupid shit like, “raking forests,” or “windmill cancer,” or support Qanon conspiracy theories.
No genuine president would ever weaponize the Justice Department and have it run by a goon like William Barr.
No law-and-order president would ever ask a foreign nation to help with his political campaign.
No president would be so petty to feud with Goldstar families, celebrities…children.
No president would so willingly attack his predecessor and accuse him of “spying on his campaign” and committing treason.
No president who respects the Constitution would try to host summits at his golf resorts, attempt to get golf tournaments at those resorts, ignore the emolument clause, or hold the Republican National Convention on the White House lawn. No lawful president would ever suggest serving three terms.
No American president would have such praise and boot-licking worship for a Russian president. No president would say he prefers dictators over democratically-elected leaders. No American president would trust a dictator over his own intelligence agencies. No American president would ignore Vladimir Putin placing bounties on the heads of American troops.
No American president would hold service members in disdain and refer to them as “suckers” and “losers.”
No president would start his administration lying about crowd sizes. No president would have such disrespect for his constituents by telling over 22,000 lies within four years.
No president would refuse to be president for states that didn’t vote for him. No president would place the lives of Americans over his own self interest.
No American president, unless he was insane, would do the things I’ve listed above, so it must be the evil twin theory. That has to be it. Donald Trump has an evil twin and he’s been working on Making America Worse Again from day one. Except, there’s just one problem with my theory.
If Donald Trump had a twin, I’m pretty sure he’d be the evil one.
