Almost a year into the pandemic and Trump is still supporting claims that it's a hoax.

He still has not a clue that his mishandling of the pandemic is why he got fired.  His refusal to publicly acknowledge how bad this could be and his tepid response is why we are still dealing with this 9 months late.  But, those of us who refused to vote for him in '16 already knew this side of Trump and that he would put ego over country when it came to a major shitstorm.

I'm having trouble conjuring pity for these people who followed Trump over a cliff with this pandemic when they will need medical help of some kind and can't get it, COVID or not.

And Kevin Hern, 1st District Rep for Okrahoma has signed onto the Seditious letter (PA words, not mine...but it is the right word), trying to get the Supreme Court to destroy the right to vote of millions of people in this country.

Good job, Okrahoma!   Just another National Embarrassment.  Of course.

I have many, many friends and family members who voted for him.  Luckily, almost all of them did so more as an 'eff you' to Hillary than it was an endorsement of Orange Twitler.  I wasn't a huge fan of Hillary, but watching Trump mock that disabled reporter the way he did (and those of you saying that was debunked didn't see the same thing I saw) was the straw that broke the camel's back.  I voted for HRC as a vote not for Trump.  She wasn't my favorite candidate, but knew this guy would be a huge sh*+show once he got into office.

He didn't disappoint.

What has been incredibly entertaining, however, is watching the mass exodus from mainstream social media platforms of his most ardent supporters to another dumpster fire, Parler.  And the freakout that has ensued since yesterday has been very entertaining...and a little troubling.

Yet the crazy train still keeps rolling:
https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/former-houston-police-captain-charged-after-allegedly-attacking-man-falsely-n1251316

The man’s truck was full of nothing but A/C parts, and the gunman — Mark Anthony Aguirre, a former Houston Police Department captain — had been paid by a right-wing organization to pursue far-fetched voter-fraud conspiracy theories.
Aguirre was fired in 2003 following a botched raid that created legal issues for the city.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/12/16/aguirre-texas-cop-election-fraud/

The Liberty Center for God and Country, paid 20 private investigators close to $300,000 to conduct a six-week probe of alleged illegal ballot retrievals in Houston leading up to the election, the group has said. None of its allegations of fraud have been substantiated.
The group’s president, Steven F. Hotze, has spearheaded anti-gay rights campaigns, claiming in 2015 that the legalization of same-sex marriage would lead schools to teaching kindergartners to “practice sodomy.”

Disgusting performance all around by T****.   Just as could easily have been predicted from his previous 50 years on the planet.

Who didnt see this coming; Trump balks at getting vaccinated and his cult members are sure to follow.


GOP congressman says he will not take the Covid vaccine because he’s ‘an American’

Representative Ken Buck was asked on Friday about when he would receive the coronavirus vaccine given other members of Congress, such as Senate Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, got the jab.

“I will not be taking the vaccine,” he told Fox News host Neil Caputo. “I’m an American. I have the freedom to decide if I’m going to take a vaccine or not and in this case I am not going to take the vaccine. I’m more concerned about the safety of the vaccine than I am the side effects of the disease.”

Mr Buck went on to state he was a “healthy person” like “most Americans” and thought that at-risk populations and healthcare professionals should be prioritised in receiving that vaccine.

“But I am not going to take a vaccine,” he said.

The announcement sparked a reaction from Dr Jonathan Reiner, the  former medical adviser to President George W Bush during his administration.

“This is just ignorant, anti-vax, science denialism masquerading as libertarianism,” Mr Reiner said on CNN Friday. “The reason for a congressman to be vaccinated now is not simply to protect him from disease, it’s hopefully to protect his community from transmission. When you vaccinate someone hopefully you’re blocking the transmission of the virus and maybe most importantly now for a Member of Congress is to model the kind of behavior we want their constituents to adopt.”

If you haven't, I'd recommend you read his niece's (Mary Trump) book.  Regardless of what you may have heard it's not really a hit piece on the Don as much as it is an introspect into that whole family.  Mary's father (Fred Jr) was pretty much the only decent one of the siblings and was ostracized by his own father for not wanting to get into the family business, instead going his own way and wanting to be a commercial pilot.  That happened (sort of), but the pain caused by the patriarch of that family drove Fred Jr into depression that ultimately got him drinking to a point it sabotaged his whole flying career.

It delves into how Donald's childhood was essentially being coddled by both his mother and father, and you see how that makes Trump feel entitled.  One particularly funny story is during Thanksgiving, evidently Donald was giving Fred Jr a huge amount of grief to the point that Fred Jr was fed up, got up and dumped a whole bowl of mashed potatoes on Donald's head.  A hilarious visual for sure while reading it.

I started reading it a week ago or so.  One of the kids read it and sent to me.  Kinda tough holding my breath for long times due to all the T**** name slinging around, even though she absolutely IS the only voice of sanity in that whole festering cesspool of malignant DNA.

Will keep slowly working my way through it.  But having watched this swamp scum for decades prancing around, I already know more than enough about him.


I did see where NJ is going to, or has - wasn't clear - auctioning off the chance to blow up the T**** casino there!

Asterisks are due to the fact that even typing the name leaves a vile taste in the mouth as if I had actually said the word!

Oklahoma Senator James Lankford waits till last minute to demand an "emergency" recount of the November election.

Several senators, led by Senator Ted Cruz, say they will reject the Electoral College results unless a commission is appointed to conduct a 10-day audit of the results. Congress is set to count the Electoral College votes on January 6.

Cruz is working with Senators Ron Johnson, James Lankford, Steve Daines, John Kennedy, Marsha Blackburn, and Mike Braun, and Senators-elect Cynthia Lummis, Roger Marshall, Bill Hagerty, and Tommy Tuberville.

"We have a bunch of ambitious politicians who think there's a quick way to tap into the president's populist base without doing any real, long-term damage. But they're wrong – and this issue is bigger than anyone's personal ambitions. Adults don't point a loaded gun at the heart of legitimate self-government"

Supporting Trump in this sham is a disgrace and Langford should resign immediately if he can't do the right thing and vote to accept the will of the American people in electing Biden.

Everyone needs to contact Langford and let him know this is un-American and wrong.

We need a break from the T**** BS.  So, just after I went to 'take a Trump', I watched this and thought is was worthy of watching - Atlas, Handle, and Spot.  I don't know who the last one is....  Oh, yeah - you can also buy Spot!!  He is only $75,000!!!
