Whoa! Beto Straight Up: Stay Out of El Paso, Trump

Beto O’Rourke did not mince words passing along his feelings about Trump’s planned trip to El Paso Wednesday. The former Congressman from the El Paso area won’t allow Trump to visit the area, at least not without hearing it from a local: From the Texas Tribune: “He’s helped to create what we saw in El Paso on Saturday,” O’Rourke said. “He’s helped to produce the suffering that we are experiencing right now. This community needs to heal.” Yeah, ten-four. I am still not voting for you Beto, unless you’re the under-study of Elizabeth Warren, but I got your back on this one, Congressman. Except I do have some reservations. Trump, despise him as much as I do, is the president. As such, he represents the people of this country, even with his noxiousness. If he were a normal obnoxious Republican, I wouldn’t have a problem. Indeed, I would have had a problem had George W. Bush not shown up at a scene like this, *ahem, cough, flying over my beloved New Orleans. And I definitely have a problem with Republican Obama haters who didn’t like Obama showing up at the White House, never mind going out of it, on any occasion.  I fight it, I try not to lower myself to that level. I attempt to concentrate on the office. I am not even trying here. Far too often, Trump goes out of his way to be clear that he doesn’t want to represent the entire American public. He didn’t speak for me or the American public when he slammed immigrants wholesale, using words like invasion and infestation, “rapists, bringing drugs,” and definitely not when he separated brown children from parents in the name of the American people, etc. etc. You are well aware of the problems. It is not like this is unusual situation. It is abnormal to invite a co-conspirator to a crime scene, or grieving community. Beto inferred the same. From Betos’ Twitter feed: “President Trump had a lot to do with what happened in El Paso [Saturday].” So, it is true that people who “have a lot to do” with murders do not ordinarily get invited to the area, representative or not. Trump and his supporters are in desperate need of a “come to Jesus moment (Oops, I did it again, sing it, Britt), that moment may be happening before our eyes. The Republican “awakening, should Jesus intervene (highly unlikely), is not worth the thirty-one lives lost. I would have rather tackled it on policy alone. Given that lives were sacrificed to appease both racists, xenophobes and ammo-sexuals, we best honor those deaths by demanding changes, and starting now, while the grief hurts the most. We need to stand-up and try to match the bravery of the kids, children, actually – from Parkland. They were too young to sign a legally binding contract, yet too mature to not call “B.S.” Seems like El Paso is locked arm in arm with them. I am with Beto on this, it ought to start by “respectfully” asking Trump to let them grieve, and then not so respectfully “telling” Trump to stay away, at least for now. There will be plenty of time for discussion about the law and about the victims in the future. We honor them by remembering. […]

Trump Is Still At It, Over 100 Hours Now and He STILL Insists Alabama...

Donald Trump bleated once again into the ether and wee hours of Thursday morning that his hurricane prediction about Alabama being “hurt” was real and that his enemies in the media — and his own government at the Weather Service, apparently — refused to see it his way for some confounded reason. Once again, the laughter rose and #sharpiegate took on renewed life. TV commentators told him to “let it go” and the assumption was that he would. But then, Thursday evening, Mr. Have Thumbs Will Tweet just had to have at it again. He just simply cannot leave this alone. That says Alabama has a 5% chance of getting hit by 39 mph wind. You don’t even know how to read your own fake map! — Palmer Report (@PalmerReport) September 5, 2019 Trump: "Right here, Alex, right in my Alabama." — Alyce Miller (@AlyceLMiller) September 5, 2019 However, none of the projections track the "cone" as reaching Alabama at any point, which is how the NOAA actually defines the potential path of the hurricane itself, and not the outlying areas that would not likely suffer much, if any, damage. — Jules Suzdaltsev (@jules_su) September 5, 2019 I love this. He's a "trump-simus" a stubborn asshole named Trump who insists on being right even when it's been proven conclusively that he's dead wrong and should just STFU. — Ursula Faw (@ursulafaw56) September 5, 2019 That’s one possibility, that Trump is a mumpsimus. Or, is it conceivable that he’s really a frustrated meteorologist? That being the next Stormy Rottman is an unfulfilled desire of Trump’s? If Trump were a meteorologist: "Lots of rain, big rains in the Middle East – you know, right around Virginia & Kentucky. Asia will be sunny – in Chinatown over here. Then this hurricane will be situated in a duck pond near Omaha. Sun's gonna set in the north."#SharpieGate — Craig Rozniecki (@CraigRozniecki) September 4, 2019 " And then as you can see, the sun will rise next to those island called Puerto Rico. Bad very bad. Can you imagine how much damage it will do to that island. It's already in a bad shape. That's wonderful isn't it ? I might send some plane loads of paper towels to save them. " — solotej (@TejpalS98269355) September 5, 2019 We can expect water, big water, the wettest water yet. And maybe a boat or two will wash up on a suburban street and Cantaloupe Caligula can make a joke out of it. Or, maybe Trump can FINALLY be right, if he just takes a page from the Democrats’ book and WILLS the hurricane to go to Alabama? Remember that, the Democrats were “willing” the economy to tank? Hey, if we can do that, what’s directing a little rain and lightning to move a few degrees on the map, huh? Trump can do that. He needs to skype me and I’ll read him a Wiccan chant. (psssst…I’ll read him the one that will turn himself into a toad, but don’t anybody tell……)
