When I was a kid, we had a name for just saying what you thought unfiltered. It was “diarrhea of the mouth.” Today, Twitter has rendered that faux pas obsolete. Now your verbal outflow can reach tens of thousands – even millions – of people in minutes.
Which makes a bad case of diarrhea of the mouth that much worse.
However, that hasn’t given Donald J. Trump even a moment’s pause. Here are a few of his recent spewings that reveal his character very clearly…
February 25 – Spike Lee Accepts an Oscar
Be nice if Spike Lee could read his notes, or better yet not have to use notes at all, when doing his racist hit on your President, who has done more for African Americans (Criminal Justice Reform, Lowest Unemployment numbers in History, Tax Cuts, etc.) than almost any other Pres!
Lee never mentioned Trump. He praised his grandmother. He remembered the enslavement of his ancestors. And he ended on a positive note:
“The 2020 presidential election is around the corner. Let’s all mobilize. Let’s all be on the right side of history. Make the moral choice between love versus hate. Let’s do the right thing! You know I had to get that in there.”
Why does Trump assume choosing love vs. hate is an attack on him? Sounds like a guilty conscience. Maybe because he knows his “more for African Americans” claim is pure B.S.?
After all, this is the guy who said the Central Park Five should remain in prison… even after DNA evidence exonerated them.
February 25 – The Border Wall
We have a State of Emergency at our Southern Border. Border Patrol, our Military and local Law Enforcement are doing a great job, but without the Wall, which is now under major construction, you cannot have Border Security. Drugs, Gangs and Human Trafficking must be stopped!
Trump has made several references lately to prayer rugs at the border, women tied up with their mouths covered with duct tape, and other scenes from the Hollywood movie “Sicario.”
None of these scenarios have been recorded actually happening on our southern border… but Trump uses them to push for his wall.
Apparently, Trump doesn’t know the difference between a movie and a documentary.
February 22 – New U.N. Ambassador
I am pleased to announce that Kelly Knight Craft, our current Ambassador to Canada, is being nominated to be United States Ambassador to the United Nations….
….Kelly has done an outstanding job representing our Nation and I have no doubt that, under her leadership, our Country will be represented at the highest level. Congratulations to Kelly and her entire family!
When Trump anointed Craft as ambassador to Canada, the Canadian press noted she had donated more than $265,000 to the Trump campaign in 2016. She and her husband had also donated almost $3 million to other Republican causes.
Her qualifications as a diplomat? Well… ahem… a speech to the U.N. general assembly under George W. Bush.
February 21 – The Jussie Smollett Controversy
.@JussieSmollett – what about MAGA and the tens of millions of people you insulted with your racist and dangerous comments!? #MAGA
I’m not going to defend Jussie Smolett here… but this seems a bit hypocritical from the man who called Neo-Nazis “fine people” after the Charlottesvlle incident.
And it took him days to make any comment on the Coast Guard officer who planned to kill liberals. Even though he weighed in on the Smollett case almost immediately
February 20 – NYT Is “Enemy of the People”
The New York Times reporting is false. They are a true ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!
Once again, Trump directs his hate and anger at the press. At this point, it doesn’t even matter what the story is. Trump is stoking hate – and thus advocating violence – against the press.
The problem is the press is reporting the truth. Trump calls any news story he doesn’t like “fake news.” Then foments violence against the source.
Look, if you’re still excusing Trump, it’s time to stop. The man is out of control. And out of touch with reality. How long can you deny evidence we have on video?
Trump is racist. He’s anti-American. And he has no respect for our Constitution.
He needs to go.
Is there room for conservatives in America? Absolutely. But only those conservatives willing to work within the bounds of our Constitution.
Our Democracy has lasted for 200 years. Let’s not allow one self-absorbed billionaire make a mockery of the greatest political experiment in human history.
