The Revolting Development continues… the hateful madman refuses to recognize that he has lost the election, continuing to put at risk the lives of countless Americans and to destroy our democracy. Yes, this is pure insanity!
In the meantime, the Trumpian Plague, the virus he refused to take seriously, is blanketing the country, and has already killed a quarter million of us. The old fool is reminiscent of the “suicide cults” such as Jim Jones and Jonestown in 1978, and Marshall Applewhite of the Heavens Gate Cult in 1997, but these dudes were two bit pikers compared to our old Rump man! His Plague has also been responsible for cratering our economy, forcing millions of us out of work. Plus, our beloved Moron (well, his cult numbers about 70 million lost souls) refuses to step aside and allow the country to get on with business. Oh, yes, he now wants to get the troops back home, quickly, to protect his “legacy.” Could that be the “legacy” I mentioned above? Well, that’s about how I see the situation, pappy!
Once again, Buster lad, you’ve hit the nail squarely on it’s head! You described his wretched criminality in your last Blog#63, Bus, and once he’s finally a private citizen again, I, for one, certainly hope the law administers the appropriate penalties. He’ll likely claim insanity, which may not be difficult to prove, but the thing that worries me is the huge number of “fans” he has in his cult. Very recently, I learned that 65 percent of white women voted for him. That’s unreal; would they really enjoy being “grabbed by their private parts,” as he famously bragged was his modus operandi? We’ve already agreed that “surreal” couldn’t describe this situation.
You got it, pap, harboring 70 million citizens “madly in love” with this monster, our poor old country has a massive psychiatric illness problem, and uniting these misguided folks with the rest of us is not going to happen easily. Keep in mind, we are not out of this “denial of the election results” crisis yet. On a small happier note, there are groups of citizens working toward understanding and hoping to bring about reconciliation, which include quite a few Repulsican congresspersons who probably would not wish to be held hostage to the worst of the Trumpsters. I recall your telling me the Constitution has a remedy for dealing with an incapacitated President, but unfortunately it didn’t anticipate a fellow with a crazy cult which could strike abject fear to preclude half our legislators from doing their job of removing him.
Gosh, Bus, we can end here on a positive note. Those ever-generous and gracious retailers are arranging shopping appointments for you to safely come into their exciting malls for Black Friday, etc. and will even enable virtual Santa visits for the kids! It don’t get much better, Bus!
This lil tale was written prior to 2016, and was pure prescience!
While stitching a cut on the hand of a 75 year old farmer, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Donald Trump and his role as the Republican Nominee for President. The old farmer said, ” Well, as I see it, Donald Trump is like a ‘Post Tortoise’.” Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a ‘post tortoise’ was. The old farmer said, “When you’re driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a tortoise balanced on top, that’s a post tortoise.” The old farmer saw the puzzled look on the doctor’s face so he continued to explain. “You know he didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there, he doesn’t know what to do while he’s up there, he’s elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of dumb ass put him up there to begin with.”
