This weekend did not provide any relief to the trump maniacal behavior. He continues to show just how much of an autocrat he intends to be. There were almost too many stupid comments to know where to begin.
Of course, he just had to attack personally, the judge who placed a temporary ban on his immigration order. He called him a “so-called judge” and went on to say that there are going to be “really bad dudes pouring into the country” because of the stay. That must be because our State Department and other agencies don’t know how to conduct proper vetting before issuing Visas.
Then an appeals court refused to give immediate ruling to stop the stay. During the arguments in the original case in Washington, trump’s lawyers basically told the judge to “stay out of it” and that he didn’t have any authority to even rule on the order because it involved “national security”.
The Washington State lawyer called that comment frightening, which it was. If the courts say that such an order cannot be challenged, they will open the door for everything to fall under the category of “national security”. For example, trump could then order a “registry” for all Muslims under the category and “national security” and no one could challenge that order.
In other words, the Judiciary Branch of the government would be toothless and become irrelevant, which is what dictators want. They could even say that red-headed people were not allowed into the country because of “national security”. Where would it end?
Then, trump has another problem or rather two problems with Russia. The first problem comes because when he called Iran the #1 Terrorist state, Russia disagreed with him. As I mentioned in an early post, Russia is probably Iran’s best ally. Why would they be willing to go along with trump? Or, do they think that trump will eventually go along with them?
Then during an interview with Bill O’Reilly yesterday before the Super Bowl, trump was asked about Putting being a murderer. And, how could he support such a person. Trump defended Putin even to go so far as saying “we have a lot of murders too. Do you really think America is so innocent?”
We are talking here about a leader of a country who has murdered opponents. He murdered his biggest opponent just 100 yards from the Kremlin. He tried to poison that person’s second in command, who actually lives in New Jersey, and when they failed, they tried again just the other day. His status is unknown at this time.
Putin has been accused of murdering opponent reporters as well as political opponents. Does trump actually know this or does he care? Is this the type of government trump wants our country to have? With his and his administration’s rants against our press, it makes you wonder just what is in store for us.
As a result of the interview with Fox News, Putin is now demanding that Fox News apologize to him for the question. What will trump do if his propaganda arm refuses to apologize and Putin takes exception to that lack of apology? Will trump order his propaganda arm to apologize or support his backers at Fox News.
While even members of his Republican Politburo are backing away from that defense of Putin, his VP is offering wonderful praise for trump’s honesty about wanting to work with Russia and Putin and his personal attacks on a judge who ruled against him.
Our beloved leader now claims that all of the polls conducted in this country that say he is unpopular or any of his policies are unpopular, they are all fake. The only polls that are accurate are the ones that say he is just wonderful.
His “alternative fats” master has been out and about spreading lies about incidents that never happened. Kellyanne Conway talked about that Bowling Green Massacre which never happened. Then when everyone jumped at her lie, she started crying about all the “haters” who are picking on her. Maybe if she learned to tell the truth instead of continuously lying through her pearly white teeth, she might discover that people wouldn’t “pick on her”.
On another note, trump probably won’t turn against Fox News. What you may not know is that one of the ads for the Super Bowl was censored by Fox. Fox considered the ad originally to be aired by 84 Lumber to be too “controversial” and told them to tone it down or it couldn’t be aired.
The ad was basically against the Berlin Wall on the southern border. In the original ad, there was a picture of an actually wall that was stopping a mother and small girl from entering the country to join the girls’ father. Only, someone and put a double door in the wall that you only needed to push to open.
But during the game, you never saw the wall and you never saw the door that was put into it. It stopped at a barbed wire fence and then showed a web site you could go to so you could see “the rest of the commercial”.
Then there were the “boycott” campaigns against Budweiser because their ad showed someone telling Augustus Busch to “go back to where you came from”. Then there is the “boycott” campaign against Coca Cola because their ad was inclusive and included non-white people and non-English words in the song being sung.
I was laughing an awful lot this morning. I read so many reports about the so-called “patriotic” half-time show by Lady Gaga. They never noticed all of the subtle jabs at trump and his policies. Nor did they notice the pro-LGBT agenda inside the show. All of the trump supporters completely missed all of that. Just shows that bubble watching makes you dumber than you think.
Finally we have the Propaganda Minister, Sean Spicer criticizing Saturday Night Live for their portrayal of him. He said it was “mean-spirited” and they should dial it back a bit. Sounds like he borrowed one of trump’s tweets about the show when they criticize him, which is every week.
Yes, it was another stupid weekend from a stupid man trying to pretend he knows how to be a president. After two weeks of screwing over the middle-class with his cancelling the decreasing mortgage insurance for first-time homebuyers and stripping the protections people had from their retirement accounts being used by brokers just to make money for themselves, he delved in other more dangerous ideas.
He challenged a federal judge’s right to rule on an order as to whether or not it is constitutional. He challenged the court’s right to even rule an anything he does. He keeps attacking our press in order to eliminate all opposition. He defended a murdering foreign leader.
He also went on a rampage about the attacker at the Louvre in France, but has remained silent on the murder of Muslims in their Mosque in Ottawa, Canada and the Mosque that was burned to the ground in Texas.
We are starting week three of trump’s so-called presidency. We can only imagine what is in store for us this week. I am sure it won’t be pretty.
And, the shirts keep marching along.
