Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

Trump has a weird goal with DACA. Apparently he wants to overturn it to turn it into a bargaining chip. Not a good strategy at this point -- if ever.

As Trump and Republican governors (and, in the case of California, mayors) kill tens of thousands of people by ignorance and negligence, he is panicking about looking good. Thus the quest to reduce the amount of testing being done. Fewer tests, fewer positive cases being reported! And no, that was not tongue in cheek, which he doesn’t do.

Bill Barr seems to be prepared to go down in the bunker, just like Eva Braun.

Wrong. I watched part of that speech, including that part. It was obviously a joke.

Well, you may know him better, but he himself is pretty insistent that he wasn’t joking.

Of course, in fairness, he is probably lying.

Given Trump’s efforts to spread the coronavirus as much as he can (Yuma today!), the EU would be idiots to let Americans in as they start to open up.

Trump has moved on to more interesting items (like eliminating immigration), so he has left to Pence to communicate on the coronavirus. This afternoon he celebrated “remarkable progress” in another indication that Republicans simply want as many Americans to die as possible. We shall accept no challenge from Brazil in terms of being the country in the world with the worst managed pandemic!

Regarding the rather embarrassing bounty case, there is growing evidence that Trump has indeed offered GOP governors bounties for the number of covid kills in their state.

So, “the commander in chief” is obviously incapable of reading intelligence briefs, which makes it comfortable for him to let Putin kill Americans abroad at leisure. But that still pales against his domestic dereliction of duty.

That story is from 2017, when the only crisis was that Trump was president. Now, with a pandemic totally out of control, a Great Depression, and racial disturbances on a level not seen in five decades? The president only pauses his golfing for campaign rallies and tweeting White Power!

I’m struggling to decide whether Trump is just brain dead or deeply evil. The obvious answer is that those are not mutually exclusive, so I’m tentatively going for both. I’ll just hope that (as he said about the coronavirus) he will just go away. If anybody can speed up that process, so much the better!

I’m proud to be on a “merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values, and indoctrinate our children.” And get rid of the president...

Some NLP sentiment analysis, a scream

Negativity is their dominant sentiment, with anger and fear as the driving emotions. This was largely directed at China, democrats, foreigners, the lockdown, masks, and the fake news media. They expressed fear towards China, democrats, foreigners, and masks.


Joy and Love are their dominant positive sentiment emotions. They were joyous of a rise in gun sales, some scientific findings, and Trump's handling of covid. They expressed love over the flag, Tea Party, and Trump.
