On 9-11, the “President” Tweets About His Greatness, Polls, Media

462

Have we become so numbed that this goes without surprise, never mind outrage? On the calendar day that we remember others’ sacrifices, and within an hour of laying a wreath at the Pentagon, the president issued the following tweet:

Let’s break down the multiple layers of repulsive and self-righteous shit layered just within this one statement.

Victimhood: “Never ending fake news.” Not a single negative thing written is ever true, nor ever his fault. It is all fake.

Greatness: He has done more than any president, ever.

Embarrassing Stupidity: In stating he has done more than any president anywhere, he is setting himself above Washington, who risked his life and freedom in the revolutionary war, then established that the president would be a citizen, subject to the laws, one who returns to life as a private citizen.

Trump is setting himself above Madison and Jefferson, who did the heavy lifting in writing a constitution that is the closest humanity has come to an “ideal” form of government.

He is setting himself above Lincoln, who risked half the union, and gave his life, to free people “owned” by other people, and save the nation.

He is setting himself above Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who fought for regular citizens during the worst depression since the Dark Ages, then went to war for the world, fearing only fear itself.

He is setting himself above Reagan and Bush who oversaw the end of the Cold War.

And he is setting himself above Barack Obama, the nation’s first black president, who reversed the Great Recession, lead the effort to get healthcare for millions, and cut down Bin Laden.

Trump has exceeded ALL of them. Stupid, but normal.

Rejection of Reality: “I would be leading by 20 points …” despite the fact that even in Fox’s own polls, Trump has never once been above 50% approval, not once, and is now exploring the bottom of his base.

Outrageous Narcissism: All the above came out on a day that an American president should not Tweet at all, but for one lone picture of the Twin Towers, Pentagon, with a “never forget” message. The “president” should be visiting first responders and listening to their concerns.

This is “our” president, today, as if it were just any other day, the outrage never ends.

****

Peace, y’all

This guy is a complete moron. He can’t even go an hour without making a day about an attack on our own soil by a reputed foreign power (yeah right). He has to come up with why we aren’t all lined up to kiss his proverbial ring. And don’t get me started on inviting the same people that attacked us to stand on the ground that they tried to destroy. Any idiot out there that thinks that’s a good idea can come kiss my proverbial spot and it ain’t my ring if you get where I am coming from!

This failed reality experiment is all about the failing ratings of a very sick vindictive narcissist. This will get worse & unfortunately violence will likely result because this is the last ‘trick’ up his sleeve. Try & scare the masses into re-election or else ! He’s smart enough to know, when he leaves the protection of the office, the indictments & prosecutions will be overwhelming.
