Trump truly, truly is ignorant

Here are some takeouts from recent Trump tweets:

  • Belgium is a city.
  • Paris is part of Germany.
  • “Nambia” and “Nipple” are real countries.  (It’s “Namibia” and “Nepal,” fool.)
  • He does not understand that when it’s noon in DC, it’s midnight in Tokyo.
  • In a meeting with representatives of the Baltic States, he kept talking about “the Balkans”.
  • He told journalists he had a phone call from North Korea.  The call was from South Korea.
  • He talked about building a border wall between Colorado and Mexico.  (Colorado does not even come close to bordering Mexico.)

 

What did you expect you goddam imbeciles????

As of Monday morning, Republican senators have made no direct comments yet about the bombshell New York Times report revealing former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s allegation that President Donald Trump directly told him he had tied military aid for Ukraine to a public announcement of an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden’s family.

However, according to Times reporter Maggie Haberman, some Republicans are privately angry with the White House for boxing them into a political corner, with some demanding to know what they knew and when about the manuscript Bolton was going to release.

Republican senators want to know why Trump is forcing them to take the fall for him.

YOU FUCKING IMBECILES!!!  IT’S BECAUSE HE’S A MOB BOSS AND YOU ARE HIS SOLDIERS.  That’s the way it works in the mob — the soldiers go to jail or get themselves whacked while the boss skates.

Trump is loyal to Trump.  You are nothing but roadkill in Trumpworld.  You think, because you are a United States Senator, you command respect.  In a normal world, with a normal President, that’s correct.  But Trumpworld is not normal.  You are just another of his minions to be discarded like a used condom when he’s done with you.

Trump rules same way all other dictators rule: By fear

Michael D’Antonio, one of President Donald Trump’s biographers, explained Sunday that the president knows very well how to use fear to intimidate people. That’s what he’s doing in the case of impeachment to help score an acquittal.

Citing Bob Woodward’s book Fear, D’Antonio explained that Trump uses fear to his benefit.

“He called it fear because Donald Trump knows how to use fear, he knows how to intimidate people, and he’ll go further than almost anyone else will go,” said D’Antonio. “And he’s proven that he can adjust the calculus for everyone in the united states senate. So, they’re all thinking, ‘Do I cross this man? Will I have a primary challenge? What is the real endpoint for me if I decide to vote my conscience instead of being loyal?’ The president has surpassed all of our expectations.”

Last week, CBS News cited a confidant of Trump’s who said that that if any Republicans cross the president, their “heads will be on a pike.” When Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) repeated the report, Republican Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Susan Collins (R-ME) flipped out, saying it was a lie and that the entire case outlined by the House managers was thus invalid.

“That’s where he lost me,” Murkowski claimed.

The senators were mocked online and on cable news, for using it as an excuse to acquit to dismiss the prosecution’s case.

In a recent piece for the New York Daily News, D’Antonio wrote that things like witnesses and documents prove

“The solid wall of Republican opposition to the call for the trial to hear witnesses and view documents tells us that craven loyalty — what might be called The Trump Way of politics — is winning,” he said.

“The president has figured out that you only need about 40 percent of the public to be rabidly in favor of you to have a good chance at election, that the rest of the vote is splintered and there may be many disaffected people in the rest of the electorate,” he said on CNN. “So people are afraid of losing their position. They want to win themselves come November, but they’re also looking forward to family members who might want to enter the political game.”

He specifically cited the Bush family, who has been “very quiet.” He said that it’s because there are younger members of the family who want to enter GOP politics.

This explains it all

Trump was not elected by Trump voters for his patriotism, knowledge, experience, ideas or ethics; he was elected to attack the people they hate.

In a nutshell there is nothing he will be judged for other than how mean his bite is.

He can lie, cheat, waste tax dollars, destroy the environment, take away health care, take away social entitlements, anything as long as he blames and shames someone else that the far-right white minority hate.
As more and more people point out how bat shit crazy he is, the hatred only increases.
There is no longer any reasonable way to confront the madness. He is feeding on animosity and his venom is like manna for his minions.

Meanwhile, there is this bit of ignorance from Trump’s spiritual adviser

A Florida pastor and longtime spiritual adviser to President Trump says she was speaking in metaphor when she recently prayed in a sermon for all “satanic pregnancies” to end in miscarriage.

 

In video of the Jan. 5 sermon, posted by the liberal advocacy group Right Wing Watch, televangelist pastor Paula White breathlessly calls on Jesus Christ to “command all satanic pregnancies to miscarry right now.”

 

“We declare that anything that’s been conceived in satanic wombs, that it will miscarry, it will not be able to carry forth any plan of destruction, any plan of harm,” White said before an auditorium of congregants.

As of Sunday morning, the clip, which was just under two minutes long, had been viewed more than 2.5 million times.

White’s words are largely being interpreted literally — that she wishes for evil women to have miscarriages — but she shared a rare response to the criticism in which she explained that she was speaking in metaphor, praying for evil plans to be foiled in her congregants’ lives.

“I don’t normally respond but clearly this has been taken out of context,” White tweeted Sunday. “I was praying [Ephesians] 6:12 that we wrestle not against flesh and blood. Anything that has been conceived by demonic plans, for it to be cancelled and not prevail in your life…”

And these “evangelicals” wonder why the rest of us consider them to be goobers who are dumber than a doorknob.

Rockets strike US Embassy in Iraq; Trump responds by tweeting about impeachment

January 26, 2020; 5:00 PM EST

AFP is reporting that five rockets exploded near the U.S. Embassy in Iraq’s capital Sunday night. Of those five fired, three directly hit the embassy.

This is one of many of the times the American embassy has been hit by foes in recent weeks. After President Donald Trump ordered the death of Iranian Gen. Qasem Suleimani, supporters of Iran attacked the embassy (pictured above), breaching the wall and burning the entrance.

Trump has not commented and has spent most of his Sunday railing against impeachment.

I’m confused.  Trump assured us that assassinating the Iranian general created a magical protection shield that would prevent any attack on embassies in the Middle East.  What happened?

This is an ACTUAL tweet . . .

This is an actual, real tweet sent by the President of the United States; sent by the man with his finger on the nuclear trigger; sent by the Commander-in-Chief of our armed forces.

And you Republicans wonder why we Democrats have no respect for you; you wonder why we think you all are ignorant goobers.  Now you know.

UPDATE

Trump is now threatening Schiff, encouraging violence against him

President Donald Trump kicked off his Sunday morning with an over-the-top Twitter attack at Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), calling him a “sick man” and saying he needs to pay for leading the impeachment charge against him.

In a pairing of tweets, Trump charged, “The Impeachment Hoax is a massive election interference the likes of which has never been seen before. In just two hours the Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats have seen their phony case absolutely shredded. Shifty is now exposed for illegally making up my phone call, & more!” before adding, “Shifty Adam Schiff is a CORRUPT POLITICIAN, and probably a very sick man. He has not paid the price, yet, for what he has done to our Country!”

You can  see the tweets below:

What price would that be?  Is Trump encouraging his wackadoodle followers to take a shot at Schiff?
