*The late R&B singer Teddy Pendergrass sang a song called, “The Whole Town’s Laughing at Me.” Well, thanks to Donald Trump, there’s no shortage of other countries laughing at the United States.
Trump and his minions need to play back the tapes from four years ago, when they were saying people should accept the results of the election.
This country is in great peril! We need to get a handle on this pandemic. According to recent statistics from John Hopkins University, the United States has 10,421,678 confirmed Covid-19 cases and 241,949 deaths. New Covid-19 records are being set on a daily basis, and Trump seems to have the Ivan Drago (Rocky IV) thought process of, “If he dies, he dies.” That is sad and unacceptable. He doesn’t give a ratz left nipple about anyone but himself…well, maybe his daughter, whom he has publicly lusted over. Donald Trump has checked out of the Coronavirus fight, and from what is being reported, he doesn’t even attend briefings anymore. Since he doesn’t care, he should let someone who gives a damn take over the job.
The economy is in the toilet. The pandemic has caused businesses, both big and small, to either close, downsize or file for bankruptcy, which in turn has resulted in higher unemployment, American’s inability to make ends meet, homelessness and despair. It has been several months since Americans received a $1200 stimulus payment. Donald Trump decided there would be no more stimulus payments until after the election. Just WOW!
Now that the election is over and Joe Biden is the projected winner, Donald Trump wants to throw up roadblocks and impact Joe Biden’s transition, which in turn puts the United States in further peril. Not giving Biden his messages from foreign leaders, is petty on any level, but saying what amounts to, ‘hell no, I won’t go!” is downright dangerous, especially for a country that is already so divided.
This man needs to go! Anderson Cooper may regret calling him an “obese turtle on his back flailing in the hot sun, realizing his time is over,” but he was right. His time is up, and he needs to stop being delusional and accept it. Someone in his camp needs to find their testicles and tell him the gig is up.
Over 77 million people said it is time for the country to move in a different direction, and that is what we need to do. Our lives literally depend on it. Donald Trump seems determined to take the United States down with him. The question is, how far will we fall before his tantrum is over?
