Ladies and gentlemen, behold, some s*** the president said during the previous week:
“Hey, you now have a president that doesn’t have to use a teleprompter. Isn’t that nice?”9/19/2020 Trump rally in Fayetteville, NC.
Look at the photo above. Notice anything? That’s right. Teleprompters.
“They said at the Democrat [sic] Convention they were going to do a national mandate. They never did it, because they’ve checked out and they didn’t do it. And a good question is, you ask, like Joe Biden, they said, ‘We’re going to do a national mandate on masks.’ Well, no, but he didn’t do it. He never did it.”9/15/2020 townhall with George Stephanopolous.
In the middle of this response, George Stephanopolous reminded the president that Joe Biden called on all governors to require face masks. Regardless of what Biden has done, it’s incredibly incoherent for the current president to fault someone who is not the current president for not issuing a national mandate of any kind.
“[The coronavirus] should have been stopped at China. They stopped it for their country, but it came out to us, to Europe, to the rest of the world.”9/17/2020 Trump rally in Mosinee, WI.
Do you ever wonder why he thinks it should’ve been so easy for China to stop, but so impossible for us to stop months later? China did stop the virus, as he acknowledges to his rally full of people not wearing masks.
“It’ll start getting cooler. You just watch. I don’t think science knows, actually.”9/14/2020 wildfire round table in California.
Science doesn’t know? The plan for climate change is to do nothing but wait and hope it solves itself? He went to the site of the worst wildfires in American history to say that?
“You know, in Europe they have forest cities. You look at countries, uh, Austria, you look at so many countries. They live in the forest. They’re considered forest cities, so many of them, and they don’t have fires like this. And they have more explosive trees! They have trees that will catch easier…If they’re on the ground longer than 18 months, they’re very explosive. They have to get rid of that stuff.”9/15/2020 phone interview on Fox and Friends.
Explosive. Trees. The trees are explosive. He should have stuck with “science doesn’t know.”
“But remember this in politics, it’s always the thing that they say first, that’s what they’re going to do. No guns, no religion, no energy, no oil, remember that…And you won’t have a second amendment…I can now call [Joe Biden] grossly incompetent, the man is incompetent. He’s been there for 47 years, he didn’t do a thing.”9/17/2020 Trump rally in Mosinee, WI.
If Joe Biden didn’t get a single thing accomplished during his lifetime of government service to date, how in the world is he going to ban guns and religion and energy and everything else in the next four years?
“But I want to just say, they do disinformation, they make up a phony story and then they go with it. They make up a totally phony story. It’s called disinformation.”9/17/2020 Trump rally in Mosinee, WI.
Finally, our president is holding Russia accountable! Just kidding, he’s talking about Democrats, which makes this statement its own kind of disinformation – lying about lying. It’s like inception for bulls***ting.
“And one of the things, oh, what they did, the worst of all was the soldiers. Because, nobody loves our soldiers like I do and they made up a phony deal. And that’s why I say the gloves are off because when they do that, that’s worse than what I’m going to talk to you about, that’s big ten. You know we got it back, right? We got Big Ten.”9/17/2020 Trump rally in Mosinee, WI.
You know Trump loves our soldiers because of the way he distracted himself mid-sentence and started talking about the Big Ten.
“From Oshkosh, to LaCrosse, from Green Bay – how are the Packers doing so far? Good team, good people. To right here…give me the proper pronunciation. Ah. That’s right, thank you. That’s what I said.”9/17/2020 Trump rally in Mosinee, WI.
Our president totally forgot what city he was in, which is something I’d normally say is forgivable if he hadn’t based his entire campaign around the argument that Biden is senile for making exactly these types of little mistakes.
“[Joe Biden]’s taking something. He’s taking something, you know, that gives him some clarity, or whatever.”9/15/2020 phone interview on Fox and Friends.
The president is accusing Joe Biden of having dementia, but also of taking drugs to make it seem as if he does not have dementia. This is what a flailing campaign sounds like. I assure you, sadly, there are no such drugs.
“I remember this guy, [MSNBC journalist Ali] Velshi. He got hit in the knee with a canister of tear gas and he went down. He was down. ‘My knee. My knee.’ Nobody cared, these guys didn’t care, they moved him aside…It was the most beautiful thing. No, because after we take all that crap for weeks and weeks, and you finally see men get up there and go right through them, wasn’t it really a beautiful sight? It’s called law and order.”9/18/2020 Trump rally in Bemidji, MN.
Celebrating unprovoked violence against an American journalist either because you’re a sociopath or you’re too stupid to see a difference between the journalists and the rioters is inexcusable. It’s impeachable. It’s fireable. He’s got to go. Register and vote.
