Trump Mask

Anti-Social Gatherings


cjones07252020

Just like we’re supposed to forget Donald Trump was anti-mask and anti-social distancing, we’re supposed to forget about Tulsa.

Yesterday, Donald Trump resumed his coronavirus briefings. Thankfully, it was pretty brief. Thankfully, he didn’t make another pitch to drink bleach. To make the presentation, there weren’t any scientists or anyone informed on the coronavirus…or anything. It was just Trump.

First, let’s get one thing straight. These are NOT coronavirus briefings. They are NOT designed to inform the public or in the interest of health and safety. They are NOT intended to help or serve anyone except Donald Trump. These are infomercials for Trump 2020. If you disagree, then please tell me one thing we learned from the briefing yesterday other than Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein’s former teenage girl wrangler who’s now in federal custody, must have some serious shit on Donald Trump.

Donald Trump said he wishes Maxwell well, which is a wink, nod, and a nudge to her that if she doesn’t say anything about Donald Trump, then he’ll commute or pardon her after the November election along with all those other pardons for Trump goons he’s planning. Don’t believe me? Ask Roger Stone. Normally, proof of this would be that presidents (sic) of the United States of America do not ever ever ever ever say nice things about pedophiles…except this president (sic) because this is at least the second pedophile he’s said things about. Ask Roy Moore. You can find him at the mall food court.

Of course, that Maxwell pedophile stuff doesn’t have anything to do with the coronavirus so we didn’t really learn anything. We already knew Trump is a liar and full of shit.

The day before, Donald Trump tweeted a photo of himself in a mask with a statement “Many people say wearing face masks is patriotic.” What? This guy has spent months downplaying and mocking people for wearing face masks. Now, he’s all about the face masks? Yes except for a fundraiser that very same night where he did not wear a mask, Trump is now pro-mask. So, forget those months of him not being in favor of masks. Also, he’s too pathetic to say HE finds it patriotic, relying on the “many people” crap.

Also, forget all those months of him not caring about social distancing and avoiding large gatherings. You know, large gatherings like Trump rallies.

Forget about Tulsa and Trump wishes you would. Forget during this pandemic where Trump now says to avoid large gatherings, that Donald Trump held a hate party with a large gathering. Forget it was indoors and about 6,000 smooshed together to worship at Donald Trump’s feet. Forget none of them wore masks. Forget that the Trump campaign removed stickers from seats that were advising social distancing. Forget that members of the Trump Campaign, members of the Secret Service, and Herman Cain all left Tusla with Covid 19. Forget the rally was also a flop as there were supposed to be a hundred thousand trying to jam inside to the point the campaign set up a stage outside the venue for the oversized crowd. Also, forget the coronavirus spiked in Tulsa two weeks after the rally.

While you’re at it, forget Donald Trump held another rally inside a church in Arizona (where the virus is now spiking) and on the Fourth of July at the foot of Mount Rushmore in South Dakota (where three out of the four presidents have now tested positive). Forget Donald Trump attempted another rally in New Hampshire which was canceled because nobody was going to be there. Ever see a racist Oompa Loompa talk to himself in a very large empty room? We almost saw that in New Hampshire.

Even while stating his newfound position on face masks, social distancing, and avoiding large racist crowds, Donald Trump couldn’t send that message from the heart. He had to read it off an index card. And the reason for this new position? Donald Trump’s polls are in the toilet. If this keeps up, we may look at a historic electoral wipeout of a sitting president (sic). But then again, it’s early and we’re all familiar with the Democratic Party’s ability to blow an election they should easily win.

But the Trump White House wants Donald Trump to start appearing as an adult and to at least pretend he cares about the pandemic. Why, they even want to create a plan to fight the virus and not too soon either, as over 142,000 people are now dead. Of course, that plan doesn’t include funding for widespread testing and tracing but it does include another tax cut for rich assholes. It also includes throwing your children into contaminated cesspools they can swim in before returning home for quality time with grandma.

We also learned yesterday that it’s now OK to refer to the coronavirus as the Trump Virus. We learned that from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who probably learned it from me. And where is the best place to avoid catching the Trump Virus?

Go to a Trump rally. No one else will be there.

After Mike Pence visited the Mayo Clinic, he caught a lot of heat for not wearing a face mask. His wife, Mother, told the press that they were unaware beforehand that masks were required inside the clinic. After being exposed as another lie from the administration, the Trump team threatened the reporter. What was the lie? The press accompanying Pence to the clinic was told beforehand by the Trump team that masks were required.

A few days later, Pence did wear a mask while touring a General Motors plant in Kokomo, Indiana (where I have family), because while it’s not important to infect patients at the Mayo Clinic. you really don’t want to spread the coronavirus to car engines. You really don’t want to create a Chevy-powered virus.

Donald Trump, itching to get out of the White House and resume his hate rallies where he can lead racist chants, set out to visit Honeywell, a mask factory in Arizona. He could have visited one much closer in Rhode Island but Arizona is a swing state. In case you’re a Republican, Rhode Island is on the east coast, just like the White House where the president (sic) lives. Arizona is on the west coast.

Before going, Trump was all, “Yeah, yeah, yeah, I’ll wear a mask…maybe.” But in the photos and video of the factory tour, Trump was NOT wearing a mask. Later, he said he did but the press missed those moments.

That makes about as much sense as Pence saying he didn’t wear a mask covering his pie and nose holes because he wanted to look people in their eyes. What the hell? Maybe Trump only wore the mask around blacks and Mexicans in the plant. Who knows.

I think Trump is lying. He didn’t wear a face mask at the…FACE-MASK factory!!! And he can’t claim they didn’t know wearing face masks were a requirement because there was a big sign at the entrance reading, “Attention, face mask is required in this area.” But then again, this is Trump and to have to read the sign, he’d have to be literate. He may also claim he thought his photo op with Honeywell was supposed to be with Honey Boo-Boo.

But, Donald Trump wants to look tough. He wants his stupid base of racist voters to believe he’s immune. He wants to give the impression masks aren’t that important which will discourage them from wearing masks, especially when they’re storming their state capitals to scream in the face of police that they need haircuts and cheesecakes.

Donald Trump did wear goggles because you never know when a flying face mask will come out of nowhere and strike you in the eyeball.

The officials at Honeywell weren’t required to wear masks either as everyone getting near Trump were required to take tests for the coronavirus. So, after the tests, they assume everyone’s in the clear. How long does it take for these tests to come in? Of course, after being near Trump, you may wanna be tested for mono, herpes, hepatitis C, etc.

During his visit, someone played the Guns N Roses version of Paul McCartney’s “Live and Let Die.” Jimmy Kimmel tweeted, “I can think of no better metaphor for this presidency than Donald Trump not wearing a face mask to a face mask factory while the song “Live and Let Die” blares in the background.”

I don’t know. The Trump campaign likes playing music like this at his hate rallies. And perhaps Drowning Pool refused to give them the rights to play “Let the Bodies hit the Floor.”
