There is NO SANCTUARY!

Well, with the news that Cheetolini (and his wife with the resting bitch face) have tested positive for COVID-19, I wouldn’t be surprised if it was true. Given his propensity for not wearing a mask, his attendance at large rallies, the death of Herman Cain, people on his staff testing positive for the coronavirus, and his overwhelming need to be surrounded by people who stroke his ego and not wear any masks, I would say that the odds finally caught up with him. Having it happen almost a month before the election, that does raise red flags.

1: The first debate.  Trump looked and sounded like the total ass that he is.  Biden kept his cool for the most part, but when Biden mentioned his son Beau (who served in the military in Iraq, and then died from brain cancer) Trump immediately went on the attack and started to ramble on and on about his son Hunter. Joe pretty much kept his cool during that personal attack. Trump then interrupted him while Joe was talking about ending the filibuster, and Joe said “Will you shut up man, this is so unpresidential.” Trump getting COVID-19 pretty much put the kibosh on future debates. 

2: The revelation by the New York Times that Trump only paid $750 in taxes for the years 2016, and 2017. Prior to that, it was was reported that he paid no taxes from 2000 to 2015, plus he took deductions on things that would be considered personal expenses such as aircraft, personal residences, $70,000 for hairstyling (when he was hosting “The Apprentice,) and most of all, “consulting fees” to his daughter Ivanka. 

3: His debt load.  Also from the New York Times, it is reported that he is personally responsible for 421 MILLION DOLLARS in loans, and they are coming due within 4 years.  Hell, I still owe about 40 thousand on my mortgage, and I don’t have anxiety over it, but Trump has a major Sword of Damocles hanging over his head.  He thinks that his lenders will be unwilling to foreclose on a sitting president. That is enough to scare the shit out of anyone.

4: His “Brand.”  Most of the income he does have comes from the licensing of his name to various ventures around the world.  If (more like when) he loses, his “brand” is going to suffer a major hit in terms of viability.  For someone with malignant narcissism (which Trump has in spades) this would be totally unthinkable.

5: The criminal tax probe by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.  Cyrus Vance Jr. said that they are investigating The Trump Organization for potential bank and insurance fraud relating to properties in Manhattan, not to mention the alleged payoffs to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, who claim to have had affairs with Trump before he became president.  As long as Trump is president, he can stymie the investigations to his advantage.

 

So basically, one month before the general election, Trump is getting shithammered on multiple fronts.  Is he looking for an escape?  Is he finally losing whatever shred of sanity he has left?  Who knows.  All I know is that it is gonna get very fucking strange in the next 31 days, and all of us better buckle in and brace ourselves for for a very rough fucking ride.

The Kanye Problem.

Really? Even after having a mild heart attack  (it happened on July 1st, and I am fine,) I thought 2020 couldn’t get any fucking worse, but Kanye West announced that he is running for President FOUR FUCKING MONTHS before the election, and he has the support from Elon Musk? Even after the show that he made of kissing Trump’s ass all this time? Is he fucking high? No one takes him seriously. Fer chrissakes, he and Kim “Big Ass” Kardashian named their kid “North.”

He thinks that his “base” is going to support him. He’s hoping that he can tune into the collective rage that happened over the death of George Floyd during his arrest. But the thing is, this crossed racial barriers, and a lot of the people that are protesting are pretty much from the liberal left, which already had a few beefs over unchecked police brutality.

The Republican party is pretty much made up of old, southern, conservative, bible-thumping and probably racist white men (who are scared of what Trump can do to them financially in terms of support.) Given their fear of Trump, they will more than likely pull out all the stops to degrade him and get him to give up, even with the support of Musk (who is pretty much shown his colors that he is a lunatic of the first order, despite the fact that he has done great things in transportation such as Tesla, energy storage, and aerospace travel such as SpaceX.)

Kanye should just shut the fuck up, make music, and continue to bury his face in Trump’s ass. He’s a fucking joke when it comes to politics, and it’s just gonna cause more discord in the political process. Not to mention the fact that he missed the deadline for filing as an independent candidate in six states and filing as a candidate in a major party after the states had held their primaries. Most political pundits just see this as a stunt to take votes away from Biden.

Sheesh, 2020 is really gonna end with a fucking big bang at this point. People call me fucking paranoid for stockpiling survival supplies. I guess that the next few months will tell. Buckle up, boys and girls, this ride is gonna get REALLY bumpy.

Alrighty then…Andrew Cuomo is doing everything that he can to contain COVID-19.

The federal government?  Bupkis.

Trump has EXPERTS telling him what needs to be done, but all he is concerned about is how well he is doing in the polls (which isn’t good, from what I hear.) So he thinks that giving every American family a check for $1000 is doing some good?

Nope, he is trying to polish the turd that his Presidency has become. He is hoping that the $1000 checks will make people WANT to vote for him. It’s bribery, plain and simple, and it is coming out of our tax dollars.

His right-wing supporters will cry “IT’S SOCIALISM!” But those assholes will be the first to line up outside the banks to cash them.

 

Grow up and grow a brain, America
