Trump lied about being number one on Facebook.
“Did you hear I’m number one on Facebook? They just told me I’m number one on Facebook. I thought that was very nice. For whatever it means, it represents something.” Donald John Trump, April 1, 2020.
Unbelievable!!! On April Fool’s Day, no kidding. Irony died way before Covid-19 but this adds another layer to Trump’s narcissism. It means absolutely NOTHING at this point in history—when people are dying all around us! We’ll break down Trump’s incompetence in a moment, but first a tribute to a Republican coward who saw it coming.
As Ms. Lindsay “I do declare” Graham said May 13, 2016,
“If we nominate Trump, we’ll get destroyed…and we’ll deserve it.”
He meant the Republican party, but the prophecy is coming true for all of us. Trump IS a path of destruction. Everything Trump touches dies. Shout out to @RickWilson He wrote the book.
What is so utterly astounding is where Trump shared this…delusion…this fantasy of being #1 on Facebook…(which he probably paraphrased and inferred after one of Mark Zuckerberg’s lying, ass-kissing visits to the White House. Turns out I was right.) **If you want to know more about Zuckerberg and Trump, click here for the Not-So-Way-Back-Blog about that.
Trump celebrated and shared his Facebook news at a Coronavirus Task Force briefing. Which was NOT REALLY about Coronavirus at all.
Trump has some kind of drug-smuggling alternative plot-line he’s trying to throw into the mix before commercial—we won’t bother to break that down. #FFS
Don’t be distracted!
There are 5,500 US deaths; 53,000 deaths worldwide!
It will take world leadership to get through the Coronavirus pandemic of 2020. Tragically, that’s something we don’t have. Trump is unfit for the role. He never rose to the occasion, there was never a pivot. He’s inept and moronic. He’s unteachable. He “had a hunch” the disease wasn’t as bad as everyone said it was. Finally, Trump is beginning to pay attention. The White House is actually predicting between 100,000-240,000 people, Americans, will die. Over 2.2 million will contract coronavirus. As I sit in my bedroom writing this (thanks to the leadership of Governor Jared Polis–whom I voted for–who’s issued a state-wide shut-in), it’s unfathomable to believe those numbers could be true. 100,000 Moms, Dads, Sons, Daughters, Aunts, and Uncles, Grandmas and Grandpas; beloved wives, husbands, partners, friends, colleagues. My fingers can barely move forward. I pause and grieve for souls leaving the planet and for those they leave behind.
It’s this grief that compels me. We MUST vote Donald Trump OUT of office in November. The fear was and is real. Trump is unfit to lead.
Trump knew months ago, but he ignored warnings by his National Security Council, the Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, his White House economists, and his friend President Xi from China among others! He ignored it. Why? Because he only wanted the “job” of President for the recognition. He never understood the job or had any intention of the doing the job. For him, the presidency is about power and money and media and messaging. And indulging his own diapered-ass whims as he tries to rewrite history. Truth is,
He went golfing 7 friggin’ times! THAT’S MILLIONS OF TAX PAYER DIMES. I’m not the only one who noticed.
Trump held 9 hate-filled rallies and called the Coronavirus a Democratic hoax. NO ONE in the White House could get him to take it seriously. What was Trump focused on?
Money. The economy. The stock market. Trump only paid attention when the markets started crashing with the news of THOUSANDS OF DEATHS IN ITALY. By that time, we’d had our first case of Coronavirus and we knew what was coming. All the alarms were ringing, they simply could NOT get Trump to pay attention.
CURRENTLY, our healthcare professionals need Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) and medical supplies to handle this pandemic: masks, gloves, goggles, gowns to cover our caregivers. There are not enough ventilators for the sick. WHY?
BECAUSE TRUMP SENT OUR BACKUP PPE TO CHINA AND DIDN’T REPLENISH THE STOCK! WHY? And he’s not using the process, procedures, or people around him to help.
BECAUSE TRUMP IS INCOMPETENT. HE IS GROSSLY UNFIT TO LEAD. Right now he should be coordinating the efforts of securing ventilators and distributing them to every state. INSTEAD, he’s playing Governors Apprentice where Red States are favored over Blue States and Governors are expected to talk nice and “be appreciative” or needed supplies fall out the back of a delivery truck or masks sneak out the back door, you know what I mean? Those nurses are making bank off N95 mask sales. Everyone is Trump world—especially Trump is looking to make a buck.
Fuck you, Donald Trump, you sad sack. (If you haven’t been paying attention, Trump is accusing medical personnel of stealing supplies even as he’s giving our stockpile to private distributors to sell—at maximum profits– to the States–Survivor style! Of course MONEY being the main criteria for survival.) Trump is projecting once again. Projecting and assigning blame. Anyone and everyone but him. He’s pointing fingers.
In the meantime, our doctors, nurses, first responders—the best of the best–are UNPROTECTED and expected to work without regard to their safety. Some are even getting notices of pay cuts!
We’ve lost two doctors and two nurses so far that I know of; the other countries have lost dozens. It’ll be in the hundreds, let’s hope not thousands of medical personnel and first responders, succumbing to the disease they are working so hard to save us from.
To our Caregivers. Big pause and big breath. Our super heroes. Please nod your head and take a moment.
… Now, back to the point, the disbelief and determination that drives me! And obviously others, from the looks of this cartoon. Who cares you think you’re #1 on Facebook!
Jesus, Trump. Take some Focsyn and get to work!!
WHERE ARE THE TESTS?!
After declining tests from the World Health Organization, Trump’s got Jared and cronies working ways to score a buck but they haven’t got those millions of tests promised to market yet. WE MUST HAVE TESTS AND SUPPLIES AND PROTECTIVE GEAR!
That 10-weeks Trump spent golfing and belching lies across the country, he could have been preparing, but he didn’t. He gambled America wouldn’t get it. He’s right on track to bankrupt and destroy the country…just like Lindsay said he’d do.
I’d feel sorry for him IF his incompetence wasn’t costing so many lives. I’m waaay beyond caring that he’s ill. He doesn’t get a pass on this. He’s lack of response and self-absorption, his need to get re-elected and stay in power will cost so many lives. His negligence and lack of leadership is astounding.
And no one believes he’s #1 on Facebook: He’s NOT! #ffs
Barack Obama has 53.2 million Facebook followers. Trump has 26.8 million. That makes him about ½ the man BO is…IF I were callous enough to use numbers as the determiner. It doesn’t take numbers to know Trump will never outrank Obama as the best “anything” of value: compassion, intelligence, leadership, direction, vision, love, good-cheer, hope, and the ever-driving belief that YES WE CAN. This Obama tweet got 1.65 million engagements and displays his kindness and goodness. Obama continues to lead and inspire a nation. And in regards to Trump, as BO said, “Don’t boo. Vote!”
And back to the point. Trump is unfit to lead the United States of America. He doesn’t have the knowledge or understanding of how government works. There is a REASON you can’t operate the government as a business. A successful businessman would know that, but Trump is not even that! He’s a conman and the con is up. Coronavirus is exposing Trump for the loser that he is.
Please, everyone, #RememberInNovember and vote Trump OUT!
In the meantime: hug your loved ones (if you’re not intentionally distancing), send your friends a message or do a video chat. Help a healthcare professional if you know one, drop-off a note and a can of soup to a neighbor. Say a prayer for our world, for the planet and all its people.
Open your eyes, dust off worry, get involved. Stay well my friends
