I’ve got to hand it to the folks at the Lincoln Project. They are like pointer dogs on the hunt. They see the prey and they move in for the kill. Donald Trump is a renowned misogynist. He insults women routinely, the more powerful and successful they are, the worse the insult. Thus we have “sick” Nancy Pelosi, “nasty” Hillary Clinton (an honor she shares with Megan Markle, by the way, who is also “nasty”) and my favorite, “low IQ” Maxine Waters. You haven’t heard Auntie Maxine bragging about passing a cognitive test lately, have you? Or calling herself a stable genius? Or marking up hurricane maps with a sharpie? We could go on. In all events, curiously, the misogyny stops when it comes to Ghislaine Maxwell: which begs the question, “What does she have on Donald Trump?”
It’s always interesting to see Donald Trump attempt to imitate human emotion, and particularly in this case. Trump conveyed his good wishes to Ghislaine Maxwell, who is accused of heading up an international child rape ring. It’s said that his White House aides were cringing when he did it, and a cringe worthy moment it was, by any standards. The Lincoln Project hammers the point home in their most recent ad. We need to get Trump out of office before he can pardon Ghislaine Maxwell — as it is rumored that he will. Don’t forget the list of people Trump has wished well: Roger Stone, Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, and now Ghislaine Maxwell. If you’re a political enemy, he accuses you of treason without even knowing the definition of the word. But if you’re a child rapist? No biggy there. Donald Trump wishes you well. Have a nice day in jail. And if you’re convicted? Oh yeah, “Sleep well, you’ve got friends in high places.” Bill Barr will work something out, don’t worry. No “lock her up” chants for Ghislaine Maxwell. Goes to show you where Trump’s values and priorities truly lie.
This Lincoln Project ad is brand new and hasn’t been uploaded to YouTube yet. It’s only on Twitter. The theme is an interesting one. If you’re a wealthy degenerate, whose hobby is trafficking in minors for sex, Donald Trump wishes you well. But if you’re a normal American who is sick, bereaved, unemployed, or without health insurance — it is what it is. Not his responsibility, man. Ask your local mayor — oh, wait, don’t do that, because they’re not handling things properly, either, and that’s why Trump has to send in troops who scoop people into unmarked vans, like in “V for Vandetta.” And it has been rumored already, that Trump is dangling a pardon in front of Ghislaine Maxwell in return for her silence. Rattle that one around your cranium. Trump wishes the accused child sex trafficker well. The millions who are unemployed? It is what it is. pic.twitter.com/Y6s0iFodC9 — The Lincoln Project (@ProjectLincoln) July 22, 2020 We need to get Trump out before he can pardon Maxwell. That way we can find out what’s going on, at least in theory, with Trump’s activities regarding minors and a lot of other people’s as well. This wild ride we’re on isn’t going to be over until it’s over.
Sometimes people in Washington get it plain wrong!
If conservatives support police killing citizens without justification, climate denial, fact denial, science denial, racist and misogynistic behavior, or a litany of other absurd points of view about numerous important issues, we call them out.
