Sweet Jesus, just how fucking stupid can one human being be?!? We are less than a week into Trump’s autocratic attempt to stop mail in voting by gutting the post office, and already the Democrats in congress are the least of his worries. Not far. In the noon Pacific hour, 3 PM Eastern, Brian Williams of MSNBC […]
I would say that I don’t know how it can possibly get any worse, but then I’ll just wake up tomorrow and find out. As I’ve written, Trump has steadfastly thrown away traditional GOP constituency after traditional GOP constituency since the day he took office, and it just keeps getting worse. For generations the military and veteran vote has been traditionally Republican and they’ve worked hard to keep it that way, casting Democrats as weak on defense. But the report that His Lowness was well aware of, and did nothing to stop Vladimir Putin from putting a bounty on the heads of American soldiers was a bridge too far. Votevets.org put out a scathing ad, coming right out and calling the sitting President a traitor. It just got worse. votevets.org has just come out with another ad that continues the “traitor” theme, but with even more devastating effect. Here’s the ad; I can’t tell you how potentially devastating this is. Trump isn’t the only one who has benefited from the support of active military members, their families, and veterans. GOP lawmakers, especially Senators have found that acreage fertile ground. There are massive US military bases up and down the east coast. Thom Tillis in North Carolina, Leningrad Lindsey Graham in South Carolina, two seats in Georgia, and even Doug Jones in Alabama all call major bases home in their states. Oh yeah, and John Cornyn’s seat in Texas. And here’s how it gets to be a perfect storm. After starting out exclusively attacking Trump, The Lincoln Project has now branched out into attacking Trump’s Senate enablers as well. So, military members, their families, and vets are now all seeing ads portraying their Senators as filthy, disgusting turncoats. And now you ad in a spot from votevets.0rg, coming out and calling him a traitor in multiple ads. Put the two together, and you have a potentially devastating effect on Trump in the military and veterans community, but vulnerable Senators as well, tied to Trump by The Lincoln Project. The GOP Senate has spent the last 3 1/2 years tying itself to Donald Trump with barbed wire. And now it’s time to pay the piper. There is noway for them to provide anywhere near the distance they need from him to survive. Sink alone, or sink together. Either way it’s glub, glub, glub. To know the future, look to the past.before the insanity of the 2020 election, relive the insanity of the 2016 GOP primary campaign, and the general election, to see how we got to where we are.

Cast your mind back to a kinder, gentler time. A time when alleged Senators of a particular party didn’t spend all day sitting around like a 10 year old on the hood of a car, ready to yell out to the boss when the cops came down the street. When a happier, more carefree America could blithely disassemble the second highest ranking general of another country with a drone strike. You know, just a couple of months ago. Remember how ruffled Iranian feathers were when we ventilated their most revered scumbag terrorist? How they threatened dire consequences and blood in the streets. And how they launched a missile strike against an Iraqi base housing US soldiers? The same airstrike that ended up with some Iranian John Wayne wanna be downing a Ukrainian jetliner full of civilians. And remember how El Pendejo Presidente came out and mocked the Iranians for being such wusses, since no US service members were killed or injured in the missile strike? Yeah, well, about that. It turns out that Trump’s boast wasn’t entirely accurate. And for once it wasn’t a case of the administration playing pea-in-a-shell with bad news. The military reported no casualties simply because there were no reported deaths or injuries. No limbs blown off, no shrapnel in chests or organs, no rivers of blood. They reported the results honestly as they knew them. But unlike opinions, results sometimes change. And in the days following the strike, US troops started complaining of headaches, ringing in the ears, blurry vision, and other ailments that they shouldn’t have. Upon examination the soldiers were found to have suffered traumatic or concussive brain damage during the strike. The military has now updated their human damage assessment from the missile strike to include 34 wounded Americans. Considering His Lowness’ gleeful ridicule of the Iranians over the initial assessment, it shouldn’t have surprised Trump, his aides, or anybody else in the administration when he was questioned about the new figures. And once again, Captain Empathy didn’t disappoint. He referred to the soldiers traumatic brain injuries as headaches, and joyfully went into a long recitation of the really nasty shit he’d seen when visiting Walter Reed Army Hospital. Considering the fact that we’re talking about Trump here, I can only assume that those were gurneys lined up in the hall that he passed on his way to his physical.Paying actual visits to soldiers in hospitals is not Trump’s style, it pushes back his tee time. It turns out that not everybody is as blase as Trump is about traumatic brain injuries. The Veterans of Foreign Wars, or VFW, was absolutely furious with Glorious Bleater. In a rather blunt and to the point statement, they took Agent Orange to the woodshed for his churlish and cavalier attitude towards our brave troops, and demanded an apology to them. I can only hope that the VFW has a lot of other shjit on their plate, because they’re going to be waiting a loooong time for an apology from Genghis Don.. The longer this goes on, the more I can only come to the conclusion that Traitor Tot has spent so much time at Mar-A-Lago that he now thinks that elections are like a game of golf, where the lowest score wins. It would be easy to believe that after the results of […]
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.
