Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

Thanks, and sorry, I didn’t particularly mean to endorse Churchill. The atrocities you describe are clearly worse than what lead up to Trump’s upside down bible photo-op (although not necessarily much worse than his willful mismanagement of Covid-19).
Was it a Gideon's Bible, perchance?

Trump just cannot contain himself during his rallies these days. Not only will he steal the upcoming election, but he is now repeatedly on record talking about his third term. Like, if Putin and Xi can be presidents for decades, it would be totally unfair if he couldn’t. So, of course, he can. And will. Unless something good happens first.

Sounds fair, all things being equal. After all, giving up everything to make MAGA.

I assume that was tongue-in-cheek, or did you mean to imply that he actually gave up something?

Trump’s eugenics crew on the border has been indiscriminately performing hysterectomies on brown women in the concentration camps. Because, you know, you sure don’t want them to come into this country and breed!

I think only the English and Irish appreciate irony. And maybe the Russians. But they go much further.

The stable genius was at it again. In a Pennsylvania town hall last night he declared that the corona virus will go away over a period of time, because “You’ll develop, like, a herd mentality. It’s going to be herd-developed. That will all happen.”

You say mentality, I say immunity. Hard to keep track of those four-syllable words...

Or he wanted to say "mob mentality". Sorry, I meant "wisdom of the crowd".

A bit of math suggests that Trump is aggressively working on an agenda to kill a few million Americans in the name of “herd mentality”. Advised by people with no relevant knowledge, because they sound good to him on Fox News. At some point, maybe, just maybe, there will be a gentle pushback.

Honest question to Alan, Paul, and any other Trump fans out there. Is there anything he could say or do that would change your opinion of him? Obviously, just killing off a hundred thousand Americans doesn’t move the needle. They were probably losers anyway.
