Ladies and gentlemen, some s*** the President said during the previous week:After a weekend where a man inspired by Donald Trump drove nine hours to shoot Hispanic people dead in El Paso, Texas, prompting many to note Trump’s irresponsible rhetoric encouraging hate, let’s not forget about this one. The President, for reasons no one has yet explained, began trashing Rep. Cummings and his home city of Baltimore last week, eventually calling Cummings a racist. Then Cummings’ home was robbed and here, the President is relishing in it. My God, what a horrific human being.
“What I’ve done for African Americans, no president, I would say, has done.” 7/30/2019 in Jamestown, VA.
I’ll go with Abraham Lincoln.
“Now, I’ll say this. [African Americans] are so happy, because I get the calls. They are so happy at what I’ve been able to do in Baltimore and other Democratic run corrupt cities.” 7/30/2019 in Jamestown, VA.
Yes, I’d love to hear more about these people that call up the President of the United States on a whim, just to congratulate him on the status of Baltimore as he labels it a rat-infested hellhole. If people are “so happy” at what Trump has done with Baltimore, why did he say just last week that “no human being would want to live there”?
“People living in Baltimore are very happy that I’m bringing out the fact that it’s like living in hell.” 7/30/2019 at the White House.
Oh, yes, of course. People are living in Baltimore and hating it, and would love nothing more than for everyone to know they’re currently burning in hell. Got it.
“In a few moments, I will sign the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund…Many of those affected were firefighters, police officers, and other first responders. And I was down there also, but I’m not considering myself a first responder. But I was down there. I spent a lot of time down there with you.” 7/29/2019 at the White House.
Did I mention how I was down there? It sure seems like the President is implying he helped in some way after 9/11 because otherwise, you’d be saying, “I was there with you, not helping anybody.” So, what’s true? For one thing, try to imagine Donald Trump helping anyone on 9/11 and not telling anyone for 18 years. I can’t. In fact, the day those towers fell, there was Donald Trump calling into a TV show from a few miles away for a live interview to discuss how his building was now the tallest left standing in lower Manhattan (it still wasn’t). He’s since lied about American Muslims having celebrated on that day. And when a relief fund was established for small businesses adversely affected by 9/11, then Donald Trump arrived – to collect $150,000.
The U.S. economy has grown at under 3% the past three years, while the Chinese economy has grown at over 6%. Our GDP is still ahead of China’s, but China continues to close the gap, as is expected for a developing economy with four times the U.S. population.
“You don’t really believe this. Do you believe this? We didn’t talk about that.” 8/1/2019 at the White House.
The question was when President Trump spoke to Vladimir Putin, whether he mentioned anything about Russia’s ongoing election meddling. This was the softball of all softball questions, because everyone in the world agrees Russia will interfere in our 2020 elections. Everyone. Except Donald Trump. Trump’s response was to swing the door wide open and invite them in. This is important. It’s a violation of his oath and an impeachable offense all on its own, and I fear we’ve grown numb to it.
“Well, I have a lot of respect for the people of Poland. And, as you know, the people of Poland like me, and I like them.” 8/1/2019 at the White House.
There is actually public polling on the popularity of U.S. presidents in various countries. Would you believe the number of Polish people with confidence in the U.S. president dropped like the Titanic from 58% in 2016 to just 23% the next year? Donald Trump is about as popular in Poland as lighting yourself on fire.
Would the least racist person in the world say this? Quote: “Black guys counting my money! I hate it…I think that the guy is lazy. And it’s probably not his fault, because laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is, I believe that. It’s not anything they can control.” That quote was recounted by a former president of a Trump casino, but Trump himself later admitted it was “probably true.”
It seems strange for any president to recommend a guy for a job only to recommend to the same guy a few days later that, no, you don’t really want this job. The problem with this particular guy wasn’t so much what the “LameStream Media” would do to his feelings, but that he had almost no relevant experience for a very important job, and no support.
