You know, whenever I look at the latest outrage of El Pendejo Presidente or his administration, my mind immediately goes back to one of my favorite movies, Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade. In that movie, any time Indiana Jones did something daring or stupid that placed them in danger, his father always exclaimed the same three words, This is intolerable! Which are exactly the same three words I bellow every time I see the latest Trump administration outrage.
But earlier today, I took a break from my laser focused disgust at the latest outrage of Glorious Bleater, namely that active duty troops under his ultimate command were not worth protecting from having bounties placed on their heads by some halfwit, former KGB cocksucker. Instead, I took a step back, and looked at the devastated landscape of the last four years under Der Gropinfuror, in a more dispassionate way than I have in quite a while, and in doing so, I came to a personally stunning conclusion.
The entire last four years of this country’s history has been completely and entirely illegitimate. There is no other way to look at it. Trump failed to win the popular vote, and he couldn’t even fall back on the time honored American tradition of having the fucking supreme Court hand the election to him. Instead, Trump fell back on micro targeted messaging and disinformation war but Vlad the Imp to propel him to the White House. From the moment Trump befouled the Lincoln bible with his hand, his presidency was illegitimate.
But don’t get cocky, we’re just getting started. We are also honored to have a completely Illegitimate Senate Majority Leader. And he was that way when he was the Senate Minority Leader as well. Every time I look at Mitch McConnell, I can’t help seeing Gollum, the pathetic creature from the Lord of the Rings trilogy, so obsessed with the power of his precious that he had lost any mortal feelings or soul that he may have had. Sound about right?
Remember this. On inauguration night of 2009, it was McConnell who sat in a restaurant room with his closes cronies, and plotted to make Barack Obama a one term President. He clearly violated his oath of office that night by placing his own personal and party interests above those of the country. His chosen method, total obstruction, McConnell reached the zenith of illegitimacy when he spent almost an entire calendar year refusing to even consider a completely legitimate nominee to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Court of the United States.
Which means of course, that we now have a totally illegitimate Supreme Court, and on two counts. The minute Judge Neil Gorsuch accepted his nomination to the Supreme Court, he became illegitimate, and by extension, the court itself. There had been plenty of time for the nomination process for Judge Merrick Garland to run its course, except for the obstruction of Bitch Mcconnell, a clear violation of the traditional Senate role of advise and consent. Even worse was the forced ramming through of a clearly unqualified , possibly on criminal ground, of the nomination of “Brewski” Brett Kavanaugh. The refusal to allow a full investigation of the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh alone disqualified him from being confirmed. In any other administration, even if the nominee had refused to step down, the President would have pulled his name. But not in the illegitimate Trump presidency.
And we are also well on the way to a totally illegitimate federal judiciary. Time and time again, in refusing to even consider the warnings of knowledgeable groups like the american bar association, and in his fervor to ram through judges who even passingly pass as conservative, McConnell has forced his caucus to follow his lead, and confirm completely unqualified judges to the federal bench, or face his wrath. And nobody wants to face the wrath of Gollum, as long as he’s the fair haired boy of his precious.
We’re not done yet. Sorry, but we’re not. For the last four years, we have also had a completely illegitimate foreign policy. Regardless of which overstuffed buffoon we have called the Secretary of State, due to the fact that the president who insists on micromanaging foreign policy to suit his own personal and political gains, there has been no legitimacy. Whether a willing, or unwilling idiot of the Kremlin. The Trump administration foreign policy has consistently benefited Russia at the expense of pissing all over every ally we have in the world.
But it’s not just Russia either. Because of his twisted entanglements, along with his imbecile son in law, Trump and Jared Kushner are so covered in Saudi pocket lint that the official position of the American government was to give the disgusting MBS a free pass for the murder and dismemberment of a Saudi journalist working from the United states. And as long as he gives you unfettered access to oceanside property for klitsch condos and golf courses, why shouldn’t Kim Jong Un have access to nuclear weapons?
When you come right down to it, the entire federal government under Emperor Numbus Nuttus is completely illegitimate. Rather than following through on his promise to drain the swamp, Trump has turned on a high power fire hose. Look at any and all of the cabinet appointees of the Trump administration. The whole thing is nothing but a rogues gallery of third rate grifters and boosters. The functional requirements for the performance of the agencies is to personally or politically enrich either the cabinet secretary, and/or Trump himself. Under the reign of trump, the national proclamation inscribed on the banner in the eagles claws should be changed from E Pluribus Unum, which means One out of many, to the much more appropriate Ubi Est Mea, which means Where’s Mine?
There has to be a way to fix this. The Founding fathers left us a precious gift, the secret map to self governance. But there was a blind spot in the blueprints. The founding fathers took for granted that men of good will who chose to enter public service would voluntarily play by the rules. But the reign of Trump has shown us in bright relief that we are piss poor qualified to deal with the outcome when a rogue bastard refuses to abide by those rules. And that is something we had better lock in to mondo quick and start fixing on January 20th, 2021. Not for me, I’ve lived my life. For my children. For your children. For all the children. And for the bright shining dream of democracy.
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.
